Spring Bear in Flowers

Hello friends! I had a really fun birthday yesterday with my family. I had a good time with lots of good food and laughter! Thank you for those of you who took time to wish me happy birthday. I really appreciate it 🙂 Today, I am sharing my card made for the Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up Challenge with Pretty Pink Posh. I own products from both companies and I love them both. So, I decided to play along.

Spring is here! The cherry trees near my house are blooming. Inspired by the beautiful flowers, I made a bear in flower shaker card. More details below.

  1. White heat emboss the Mondo Hydrangea bouquet on watercolor paper. Color with Gansai Tambi watercolor, then die cut it out
  2. Die cut the bear from All Inside, stamp with Versafine Toffee ink, color with Zig clean color markers
  3. For the background, stamp the hydrangea flowers with light gray ink. Stamp the sentiment with Versafine Toffee ink, blend some Scattered Straw distress ink over the sentiment
  4. Die cut the shaker frame with MFT Stitched Square Scallop Frame Die-namics. Fill in the shaker with some pretty sequins from Pretty Pink Posh
  5. Mount the shaker on Grout Gray card stock to finish off

I love the bear so much!! I can never get tired of it! So as the Mondo Hydrangea! Although I basically watercolor it every single time, but this stamp is seriously so pretty. I hope you enjoy today’s post. Have a wonderful day!!!
