Welcome, welcome!!! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I’m over on the Trinity Stamps blog for another fun Wednesday. Today we’re having a sweet tea party with a couple of adorable bears! I love how large these images are! They fill up a slimline or an A2 size card but they also work wonderfully with the new A7 card size products as well! Today I really wanted to try them on a slimline, so let’s get started.
I stamped and heat embossed the images on Bristol Smooth cardstock and watercolored them all with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush pen. When they were dry, I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Then I started die cutting the elements for my scene so I could get inky messy!
I die cut 3 panels with the largest Slimline Modern Embossed Panels die. Then I used the Slimline Great Outdoor Borders dies to cut a hill and some grass with two of the panels. Then I came in with distress oxide inks and inked each panel up. I spritzed them all with water and blotted them dry. Last, I die cut the sweet picket fence from the Great Outdoors Borders and moved on to assembling my card.
I used liquid adhesive to adhere the background layers together. Then I added foam squares to the back of my images, including the sentiment and decided on final placement. I wanted some depth so I used liquid glue to adhere the tree stump and girl bear. Then I removed the release paper on everything else and popped them in place.
Isn’t this scene just too cute for words?!? I love these sweet bears! My brain is working trying to figure out what else I can have them sit on!
