Bear Hugs & What I Love

Do you love bears? If so, I think you’ll love this cute card that I received from Marilynn in my recent swap. It uses our Bear Hugs Bundle (140822/140823) found on page 40 of the Occasions Catalog.

This card is perfect for Valentine’s Day since it was teamed up with our Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  I like the fun addition of the Silver Glimmer Paper for the bow time and skirt too. What do you think?

And this second card is from our exclusive Sale-a-bration selection of stamps. The What I Love stamp set (141276) is a photopolymer set that includes 10 stamps. It is considered a two step stamp since you can build layers of color to create more depth.

What I Love 2016 SC SAB Catalog Swap

Two step stamps are a lot of fun to play with because the color combinations are endless and allow you to create a ton of different looks from just one set of stamps.

Laura used Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant to create this lovely blossom. And can you see the elegant Venetian Crochet Trim (134581) peaking out from behind the Modern Mosaic (129984) embossed layer? What a great way to use this trim!
