How I love Baby Bear! I have a soft spot in my heart for stuffed animals, and Baby Bear looks so real! Isn’t he irresistible?
Baby Bear has been on my mind, since I learned that he was one of Stampin’ Up’s retiring products. So, when I saw the “sepia” challenge at TGIF, I immediately thought of him.
I used three colors of brown to stamp Baby Bear; Soft Suede , Crumb Cake, and Sahara Sand. To achieve his realistic look, Stampin’ Up gave us three stamps for a “3 step” process. First, I stamped the most details in the darkest color, Soft Suede. Second, I stamped the medium details in the medium shade, Crumb Cake. Third, I stamped the least details (looks like a blob) in the lightest shade, Sahara Sand.
The Stamparatus positioning tool made this “3 step” process very easy.
I stamped Baby Bear on Very Vanilla cardstock, matching the card base, and cut with a Stitched Shapes circle die.
The sentiment, “love you,” is from the stamp set, and the inside says, “beary much.” I used a Bunch of Banners die for cutting, which is a die set that is also retiring.
The background is Crumb Cake cardstock with a vertical strip of Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut DSP, and a horizontal strip of 6 X 6 Neutrals DSP. This layout was designed by Claire at Paper Players.
Thank you for stopping by to see Baby Bear. If you want one of your own, remember, he is a “Last Chance” product, so only while supplies last. You can click on his picture in my Product List, or click on my “shop” button to see the entire “Last Chance” products.
