Step One: Die cut the Koala die set from some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, color and assemble it using Kids Choice Glue.  I used copic marks in Warm Gray to color the image.

Step Two:  Repeat step one, except use the Panda Bear die set.  I used copic markers in Cool Gray to color the Panda Bear.

Step Three:  Repeat step one again, except use the Honey Bear dies set.  I used copic markers in the E10-E19 range to color the bear.

Step Four:  Die cut several new year themed images from the Party Accessories die set using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  Color in the images using alcohol markers.  I used copics in Neutral Gray N4, N6, and N8.  Add gold accents using acrylic paint.  I used Golden Fluids Iridescent Gold Deep.

Step Five:  Adhere the party accessories to the three bears.

Step Six:  Trim a piece of Cafe au Lait Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches, and score and fold the cardstock to create a 6×6 card frame.  Using Distress Oxide in Black Soot, distress the cardstock to create a moody background.

Step Seven:  Splatter the background of the card frame with the gold acrylic paint.  Paint more paint onto some 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, let dry, and die cut using the Adventure Edges die set.  Adhere to the card frame using some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Eight:  Adhere the bears to the card frame using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Nine:  Die cut the sentiment from the gold painted cardstock.  I used the Words 5- Winter Wishes.  Adhere with Kids Choice Glue.

Sending You A Bear Hug Card

December 26, 2019

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Now that the holidays are sort of over I wanted make a playful card using the Honey Bear and Asian Accessories Die. Below you will find the steps to create your own Sending You A Bear Hug card.

Step 1 – Trim Red Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Diecut Fitted Rounded Rectangles using the card base created from Step 1. Be sure to offset the die slightly past the fold. This is round all the corners while keeping the card 1piece.

Step 3 – Diecut Stitched Rounded Rectangles using White Soft Finish Cardstock. One die slightly smaller than card base. Doodle a pattern using any colour medium of your choice. I made a freehand checkered background and coloured it using Spectrum Noir Classique Alcohol Markers. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 4 – Diecut Honey Bear using either coloured cardstock or White and colour in the colours of your choice. Assemble the Bear and bees using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 5 – Diecut Asian Accessories (the umbrella). I added some shading to the Umbrella using Spectrum Noir Classique Alcohol Markers. Adhere the Umbrella, Bear and Bees using Foam Tape.

Step 6 – Stamp Bear Hugs sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink on White Cardstock. Trim the sentiment and adhere on top of the bear arms using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

I love making patterns by freehand and using them as a background. Try it out and the fun part is you don’t have to doodle the entire panel. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Honey Bear Card by Melanie Smith

Hello friends,

DT Melanie here with today’s inspirational card I made for all of you. This is the very first time using watercolor markers so be gentle with me 🙂 My hubby adores bumble bees since he is a Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket fan, so when he saw this a big smile came over his face. I hope it brings you a bit of happiness as well.

Everyone needs a little motivation at times and I think this “Reach for the Stars” sentiment was perfect for this stamp set.
