Today I’m showcasing the amazing Winston character in Papa Bear. I love this sweet bear so much! I just think he’s adorable and so fun!

For my card today, I used the plaid stencil on a white panel with teal and guava inks and then did another layer of stripes with Thermoweb brilliant blue glitz gel. Then I took another panel and used Thermoweb copper metallix gel through the cascading stars stencil. While those were drying, I stamped a few of the images from Papa Bear and colored them with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and liquid glue to adhere the bow and tie to the bears.

I’m an only child and so is my daughter, so I really love this image having the papa bear holding his little girl. It brings back lots of memories.

Next, I die cut a frame from Framework out of a guava colored cardstock that matches the ink I used on the plaid panel. Then I cut the fancy edges tag from vellum and heat embossed a senitment on it. I also cut the hole reinforcer from blue, glued it on and threaded some teal ribbon through the hole.

Once my panels were dry, I die cut the plaid with he largest Framework die and the stars with the third largest square in Frames Squared. Then it was time to adhere all these awesome layers together.

I cut a blue panel for my card front that matches the hole reinforcer on the tag and also matches the glitz gel in the plaid. I glued this to a white card base and popped the plaid panel up with foam tape. Next, I adhered the guava frame to the stars panel and popped them up with foam on the plaid panel. I added foam squares to my images and adhered them to the tag. This was I can hide the glue behind the images to adhere the tag to the star panel.

Moving on to finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to the bear’s eyes and glossy accents their noses, bow and tie. Once the glaze pen was dry, I went back in with a white gel pen and added the highlights back in.
