Honey the Bear


Honey is from the Count On Me Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Once cut from the paper, Honey said she would be easy to color, because all I would need is a Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend. She was right! The darker areas were made by a second coating with the same color.


Since Honey is holding a heart, she wanted to use the gorgeous, Floral Hearts Die (pictured in the first photo) to cut from a pink pattern of In Good Taste Designer Paper. I used the same paper to give her a “paper pieced” heart to hold. This required stamping the portion with the heart on the designer paper, fussy cutting the heart, and gluing it in place. I hope you understand, because “paper piecing” is a fun technique. Then, I cut a second Floral Heart from Basic White Cardstock to fill in the center, saving the “outside” for another card.

For the background, Honey wanted paper that would match her fur, and we chose a year-round pattern from Tidings Of Christmas. To add some pretty detail, we used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting.


The sentiment was a “no brainer,” because it’s Honey’s favorite from the Count On Me Stamp Set, “Love comes in all shapes and sizes.” I stamped it in Early Espresso Ink, and used the long, rectangular, Ornate Layers Die for cutting. I made several cuts with the same die, adjusting it to fit the words, and leaving room for Honey to stand on it.


Honey is very pleased with her card, and wants to make sure that everyone sees it at #stampingthroughthecatalog.
