Hey Friends! It’s EK, and today I am creating a card featuring not only Joset’s sweet Koala die set but most of the sentiment stamps from the Bear Hugs stamp set. There are so many wonderful sentiments on this stamp set it is difficult to pick just one, so instead I created a background using them all.
Step One: In a stamping platform line up in a pattern the sentiments from the Bear Hugs sentiment stamp set into a block. Using a light blue ink, stamp the pattern onto some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Slide the cardstock over and stamp the pattern again onto a clean section of paper.
Step Three: Slide the cardstock down, letting it hang out of the stamping platform, and stamp the pattern.
Step Four: Repeat step two and three until the whole piece of paper is inked.
Step Five: Die cut the cardstock using the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set.
Step Six: Using the same ink you stamped with, blend it around the edges of an A2 card frame.
Step Seven: Adhere the die cut sentiment cardstock to the card frame using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Eight: Using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut the piece of the Koala die set.
Step Nine: Color the die cut piece with alcohol markers. I used my copics.
Step Ten: Using a liquid adhesive, assemble the Koala die set.
Step Eleven: Adhere the the Koala to the card frame, centering him onto of all the sentiments.
I hope you find my project as absolutely cute as I do. It was really fun to make, and I can’t wait to create a new one with a different sentiment stamp set.
