Hello everyone, Effie here! Today I made a video of a quick colored card using our Honey Bears and Like a Boss stamp sets. I used the small stamps in the Honey Bears set to create a cute background design that went behind my cut out panel. Please enjoy the video!
First, I started off by stamping my bear on an A2 sized panel. I stamped this adorable bear in our Copic friendly Caviar Hybrid Ink. Then I colored the body with E13, E23 and E25. The bear’s mouth was colored with E00. The adorable chest hair patch was colored with RV02. Then I grounded the bear on the panel by coloring in a gray base by blending some C1 and C5.
Then I took my pencil and drew a curved path stemming from the bear’s paw which I then cut out with my craft knife. I planned on stamping a background pattern behind that cut path. Then I took a side folding A2 cardbase and put it behind my cut panel. I made tick marks along the curved path onto the cardbase which would serve as my guide to where I would be stamping my DIY background. Next I took the small stamps within the Honey Bears set (honey comb, bees, honey pot and fish – these tiny stamps are SO CUTE!) and stamped them on the cardbase within that curved path with our Rose Gold Bangle Pigment Ink.
Lastly, I adhered the panel onto the stamped cardbase with some foam tape! Today’s card was a simple design but I love the subtlety of the rose gold combined with the starkly colored bear.
Thanks for stopping by today! See you next time!
