First, we stamped eight of the bears from the "Pieces & Patterns" stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink onto masking paper. (Lydia uses Avery Self-Stick Removable Laser ID Labels #6465.) And then we fussy cut each and every one of those eight bears...to some moans and whines, but I LOVE to fussy cut, so I had no complaints!! We used the straight edge of our piece of masking paper to mask the bottom third-ish of a Whisper White panel (I cut mine to 3-3/4" by 5" at home) and then peeled and placed the fussy cut bears onto the top of the panel, randomly. We sponged on some Lemon Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo Ink and flicked on some Flirty Flamingo Ink, too. When we were finished with that step, we peeled off the bears--saving them for later--and the bottom masking piece. We stamped a sentiment from the "Pieces & Patterns" set in Basic Black Archival Ink onto the bottom of the Whisper White panel.
When I got home, I adhered my stamped panel to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock mat, wrapped a length of Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon around, and then adhered it to a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base. How cute is this?!
Remember, those bear masks that we set aside? Well, that's where the two-fer comes in! We stamped the "hello there" circle in Basic Gray Ink onto the middle-ish of a Whisper White panel (which I cut to 3-3/4" by 5" when I got home). Then we adhered the bear masks around the circle. Adorbs! Here's Lydia's card and I'm telling you, you need to read her blog post, too. She's brilliant!!
When I got home, I adhered my stamp panel to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Flirty Flamingo Card Stock mat and then onto a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base. Love it!!
I've got one more two-fer fer you this week, so come on back and see what else we learned from Lydia!!!
