Even More Beary Special Things - Inspiration

Just a few more things to give you inspiration. I won't go into a great deal of detail on these as much was explained in my last two blog posts. I'm just having lots of fun making bookmarks and cards and wanted to share.

There are single stamps on Pg 208 of the main Stampin' Up! catalog. Ribbon of Hope (item #115552) is one of many. I used leftover paper I had for the bookmarks. The ribbons and classic ink used was Pretty in Pink.
I loved the look of the background on the above two cards. Can you guess what I used to create it???? It was the P is for Paw Stampin' Round wheel (item #115620). I run it over and over the card to achieve the effect. First card was done using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink and the second was done using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink.

I made a quilted look of the background using my Scor-Pal (scoring every 1/2") and Stickles.

The Bear is sitting on a bookmark/tag. Thought it looked great as an accent to the card. The flower was printed on some card stock and I cut it out and attached with dimensionals.

More little bear bookmarks. Thought they would make great stocking stuffers, thank you gifts, and I might even keep a couple for myself to use. Just remember with bookmarks that you don't want to add anything that would add lots of depth to the bookmark as it could mark the pages of the book. Also chalk and glitter can rub off, so would suggest you NOT use them on a bookmark either.

I'm so jealous of the bear stamping kit, I so want it. I collect bears, mostly in memory of my daughter and my husband. (nicknamed Bear and babybear)

Btw, I found your blog via the sunflower tutorial, as mentioned before, but I can't find any supplies that I need to make them. :( Will have to find a stamping up representative in my area! Hopefully I can get it soon because I have been requested to make cards with sunflowers on them! (my first paying gig!)
