I officially declare Bear Hugs Stamp set and coordinating dies as  the most adorable current products from Stampin' Up! and perhaps my favourite. 17 individuals stamps and 9 dies will allow you to create the cutest mother's day, father's day, baby, love, friendship, greeting cards ever. I used 7 of them to make the card for the Sketch Challenge # 18  of Global Design Project. 

Please  click here to join the challenge this week or to see more beautiful paper craft projects made by the participants and for members of our design team.

This is 6" x 2" cards and I used Stampin Up 12"x12" kraft card stock to make the card base, whisper white card stock for the inside panel. My new favorite Black Archival ink to stamp all the images. To add color to this card I used  Pacific Blue, Melon Mambo, Hello Honey,  Cucumber Crushed, Pumpkin pie, Smoky Slate ink  colours. To embellish it I used silver metallic thread, black and white twine and  Pearl Basic Jewels. All products from Stampin' Up!

I have made a video to show you who I made this card. I  have applied different techniques it such as coloring, layering, die cutting and embossing and I'm also sharing some  basic tips during the process of making this card . ( I hope you can understand me. remember I'm spanish speaker and my  English and pronunciation is not great)

Oh! after recording the video I decided to add a  petticoat  underneath  mama bear skirt. I used a little piece of printer paper to make it and to add a bit of dimension to that part.

I hope you like this card idea and might be this source of inspiration for you to create your own designs with mama bear, papa bear and baby bear or any of the additionals stamps and dies in "Bear Hugs bundle" by Stampin' Up! 

Please  feel free to leave a comment or to ask any question. 
I'll be happy to keep in touch with you. x Bibi
