Beary Special Cards - Inspiration

This is one of the ready made cards that said Thank you in the middle. My cute little Stampin' Up! is covering that up to help me recreate the card into something completely different. The fancy eyelet border was already on the card.

September 1st you will be able to purchase this cute little bear that is embossed and cut out with the Big Shot. It is part of the Build-A-Bear Workshop collection and is an Embosslit called Lil' Paws (item #117984) and the sentiment is also from that collection and is called Beary Nice Wishes (item #118050).

The sentiments in Beary Nice Wishes are:
I (HEART) YOU BEARY MUCH!
BEARY BEST WISHES
HAPPY BEARTHDAY!
THANK YOU BEARY MUCH!
YOU'RE PAWSITIVELY PERFECT.
HOPE YOU'RE BETTER BEARY SOON.

Isn't it a great set and will be able to use for so many projects and cards.


Another recreated card. I took chocolate chip classic ink and sponge over the complete card. The deeper blue stripe has a torn/ripped edge which was achieved using The Tearing Edge Ruler (item #102930).

The little card was made using Stampin' Up! Two Tags die (item #115954) for the Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! Little Leaves Sizzlit die for the leaves. The seal in the middle is from the Build-A-Bear Collection stamp set called Seal of Pawthenticity (item #118054). I attached the little card using a 5/16" Neutral Brad (#112534) in chocolate chip.


The slit in the card and the natural crease (because of the die) allows the card to be easily folded. I took our Stampin' Up! Lil' Paws (item 117984) and glue him inside with SNAIL Adhesive. Using the Stampin' Write Markers I colored in the eyes, ears, nose, eyebrows and heart. The I love you stamp is not Stampin' Up!.

I thought this was great to have a card within a card.


The Medallion stamp (item #115223) was used as the center image of this card. The medallion covers part of the front and part of the back of the card. I used my brayer to ink the stamp, then set the paper onto of the stamp and ran my fingers over the paper. The little butterfly is an Stampin' Up! incentive stamp (one of my favorites) and the sentiment is from Ever After (item #113401). I use Pale Plum card stock and Perfect Plum & Old Olive classic ink.

We are having some repair work done at the house plus company here for a few days, so I haven't had the chance to do additional tutorials for you this week. Hope these cards helps inspire you.
