This week’s Global Design Project is to CASE Stesha Bloodhart and her fabulous bear card. Won’t you join in the fun, and hang your design in our gallery?


I found my bear on the Happy Forest Friends Designer Paper, and Brown Bear was easy to fussy cut with my Paper Snips.

The background was created with another pattern of Happy Forest Friends Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″, glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Brown Bear’s Open House


The fun part of my design was combining Happy Forest Designer Paper with the Warm Welcome Bundle. This bundle was introduced  on October 1st at Stampin’ Up’s World Card Making Day event, which will be in the new January-June 2023 Mini Catalog. The great news is, it’s available now!

First, I stamped the door, from the Warm Welcome Stamp Set,  in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used two Warm Welcome Dies for cutting the perimeter of the door and the “opening.” Wanting the panes in the door to be “see through” glass, I used the “paper piecing” technique. This was accomplished by stamping the door a second time on the Happy Forest Friends Designer Paper, and fussy cutting the three panes, which were glued in place.


“Open House” is from the Warm Welcome Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, cut with a Warm Welcome Die. Prior to attaching with Dimensionals, I cut the “hanger,” using a a Warm Welcome Die, from Early Espresso Cardstock.
