You're The Beary Best!

Good morning friends!!

Today's Design Team project was made using Bear Hugs 
stamp set by OAK Tree Stamps.

Follow along to see how this Beary cute card was made!

The card base used was a premade standard Center Step card that I had.
I measured the area of each section and cut my pieces for the background.

I added the first layer of the backgound to the base of the card using
double sided tape.

Then added the patterned paper to the panels. 

Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the images for my card.

Using my Spectrum Noir markers I colored the images, and then hand cut them out.

I added some hand drawn stitching to the bear to give him the look
of a stuffed teddy bear. Added a few highlights using my gelly roll pen.
I stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used dimensional 
adhesive squares to attach the acorns.  

This card was a lot of fun to create. The Bear Hugs stamp set is perfect for 
so many projects. Get your set today!

Bachelorette Party!

Hello my friends! 

Here is this months design team project for Brutus Monroe Stamps. 
I have used the "Buy The Shoes" stamp set. 

Fist I stamped the heels using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then
 fussy cut (hand cut) them out with scissors. 

Using my Cricut Explore, I created the tag and used 
the writing feature to add the info to the tag. 

Using foam adhesive sqaures, I attached the heels to the tags. 

Punched a hole at the top and added the ribbon. 

I then tied it to a zebra print favor bag and added a little bling. 

I hope you enjoyed this quick little tutorial. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!

Bear Hugs Favor Boxes

Hello my crafty friends! I am sharing with you my first official design team project for 
Oak Tree Stamps!  This weeks project is this party favor box that I made using the
BEAR HUGS stamp set. Read on to see how I made this quick little favor box!  

  1. I stamped the bear using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  2. Colored the bear using my Spectrum Noir markers
  3. I fussy cut out the bear, although Oak Tree offers the coordinating files for these stamps which can be found here.
  4. I punched out 2 small hearts to make the bow and then embellished the center of the bow using silver glittered Stickles.
  5. The box used is 4x4.  I cut one pink solid paper at 3.75"x3.75" and one at 3"x3"  I then cut the pattered paper at 3.5"x3.5".
  6. I inked the edges of the 3x3 with Powder Puff Limade chalk ink
  7. I layered the papers as pictured using my ATG tape gun.
  8. I attached the bear to the front of the box using 3D foam squares
  9. Finished it off by tying coordinating organza ribbon.

I hope that you enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed making it!!
