PPP December Blog Hop Beary Comforting

Welcome to the PPP December Blog Hop featuring the Beary Comforting Paper Pumpkin Kit. It is hard to believe this is our last kit for 2020 and I think they have saved the best one for last. It has been a crazy year filled with uncertainty and anxiety, so this kit is perfect for sharing some love with the people we care about to let them know they are not alone. 
For my alternative card design I decided to use the amazing stamp set included in this kit. I fell in love with the bear image in this kit and I was so happy to see the bear stamp in the exclusive stamp set. It meant I could create as many bears as I wanted and I knew it would be perfect for creating cute Valentine's Day cards. I decided to combine it with fun new products from the 2021 Sale-a-bration Catalog and January-June 2021 Mini Catalog so that I could send out "Love Notes" to people to help brighten their day. The beautiful background paper is from the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper from the 2021 Sale-a-bration Catalog and the sentiment and other stamped images are from one of my favorite new bundles in the new January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, called Kangaroo & Company. Both of these catalogs will be available beginning January 5th, 2021, so you don't have long to wait.

This fun card started with the cute bear image from the kit, that I stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock and colored with Stampin' Blends Markers. I fussy cut the bear with Paper Snips and used the Stampin' Dimensionals in the kit to attach to the designer series paper card front. The hearts were die cut from Cherry Cobbler and Flirty Flamingo cardstock and embossed with the Painted Textured 3D Embossing Folder and I added the Flirty Flamingo heart with Stampin' Dimensionals to the Cherry Cobbler heart to add dimension to the card design. The small letter and envelope were stamped and die cut using the Kangaroo Dies as well as the cute bundle of hearts image, which I colored with Flirty Flamingo and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends Markers. For a touch of bling, I added small Basic Pearls to the top left corner of the card to help balance out the design. I love how the bear pops against the designer series paper background and I used the colors from the paper to coordinate the other elements to tie it all together. It was a fun card to create and I can't wait to send this card and so many more to my friends and family.
