I love you Beary much!..Before and After

I used to collect teddy bears....lots of them. While I don't do THAT anymore...um, stamps have kinda replaced them...I'm still a goner for a cute furry face.

I saw these cuties and knew they'd be perfect to tuck into my grandchildren's Valentine box.
Of course, I couldn't send them out of the house looking like this so I dressed them up a bit.





This is the one I did for my granddaughter. The cute image and designer paper are all K & Co.
in a Valentine pack I found at Michael's. The base cardstock is Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush and Summer Sunrise. I stamped her name using Spellbinders Brayton Font. See that sweet butterfly? It's the Martha Stewart punch....I used a product called Shimmerz in the color Pixie Dust, on the wings...I wish you could see the sparkle. Shimmerz is a paint on glitter. You just shake it up and put it wherever you want some sparkle. Easy Peasy!
That cute little bird was already all glittered up.
I made one for my grandson as well but that picture came out too dark...I'll say it again...I can't wait for my birthday and that photo light box. Geesh, I never thought I'd want another birthday to hurry and get here but anything for stamping, right? :-)
Thanks for visiting. Your comments are always welcome!
Blessings and Happy Stamping,
Charlene
Pin It!
