I have been having so much fun with the new Two Ted bear stamp from Crafty Individuals.
I have quite a few projects made up with this stamp but today I wanted to share this card with you.
For a sneak peak at the other cards I have made and also some of the fabulous makes by the CI team please click here.
There is a lot of masking involved in this card but all of the images I have used have really clean lines so it was easy and quick to make some paper masks. Just to share I used the teddy bear mask about 8 times and it is still ok.
To make this card
Order of stamping and masking
Bears and mask
The teacups and mask
The large clock and mask
The floral background.
Stamp and mask all of the images as per the order above.
Remove the masks and color the image.
Make up the card as seen.
I did attach the little stamped circle embellishments using a foam pad. I thought this looked like one of the little buttons that you get on some of the famous teddy bears.
All of the images have been stamped using Brown Archival Ink and colored with a mixture of water color crayons and diluted felt pen ink.
Before I leave you today I just wanted to share a couple of additional thoughts about the CI new releases.
The Floral Festival (as above) stamp is fabulous! It is a large stamp
139 mm x 139 mm and great if you want to create background but also you can ink just up part of this stamp to make small impressions or indeed trim the stamped card to size.
The other thing is that Crafty Individuals have brought out a new set of sentiments “Words and Wishes” CI 438. This is the set I have been waiting years for!!!! They are a super size and cover all occasions. Really easy to cut out of the sheet as well. They would also be perfect with the bears….Its’s a boy, It’s a girl etc.
Can you tell I am excited about these new stamps!!
Thank you for looking
