We Create April Blog Hop Bunnies & Bears

Welcome to the We Create April Blog Hop as we showcase our theme of Bunnies and Bears. Our Design Team Members will be sharing fun projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own wonderful projects. 
For my card design, I chose to use the bear from the Count On Me stamp set. I wanted to create a card that would provide comfort and support and I really liked the sentiments in this stamp set. I paired it with the retiring You're A Peach Designer Series Paper with this pretty Balmy Blue polka dot pattern. I wanted to create a card that would help brighten someone's day and let them know they were loved.

I love using designer series paper to create clean and simple cards. This pretty polka dot paper creates the perfect background for my card and the Poppy Parade hearts add a wonderful pop of color. I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver embossing powder to step up the design and I colored the bear using Stampin' Blends Markers. This adorable bear is easy to color and works well for a variety of occasions.

  1. Such a sweet card! The calming blue in the background really makes those red hearts pop. And the silver embossing on the greeting is the perfect touch. Thanks for sharing :-D
