Polar Bear Greetings


Hi My Stamping Friends!
It is time for Day 2 of the October Pretty Cute Stamps Release!
If you found your way here from Dawn's blog, you are right on course, but if you would
like to start from the beginning of the hop, click here.
I am loving all of the inspiration from the Design Team using the cute new stamps from
this release, and by the way, all of these stamps are available and on sale right now in the
Pretty Cute Stamps Store!
I have to tell you, I had so much fun making this card!
My card features the new set, Warm Winter Wishes.


I created the landscape for this card using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers which are a watercolor marker and so vibrant and fun to color with.  I only used one of the markers and got all
the different levels of color from it.  After letting the watercolored piece dry, I stamped the
smallest snowflake from the set to add that snowy, festive touch and then I glittered them up
with glue and dry glitter.  I layered that piece onto some patterned paper, which I also used for the bear's scarf, and then onto a white card.  The polar bear is just one of the cute critters from this set (see full set below), and I colored him up with Spectrum Noir markers and then paper-pieced his warm scarf.  I glued the bottom of the polar bear down, but popped up the top with foam dots to add some dimension.  The final touch was the greeting, which I stamped in a pretty blue ink.


All of the new sets from this release will be on sale through Oct. 13th, 2015 and
for a really great deal you can purchase the whole bundle!
