Birthday Bears

I just can't help but use my bear, from Under the Stars,when I make a card. 
This time I made a group of bears to wish my son's friend a Happy Birthday! 

I just have so much fun coloring this bear. First I stamp my bears with Black Stazon onto Watercolor paper. Using retired Stampin' Write Markers, Close to Cocoa and Creamy Caramel, and my Blender Pen to create this furry fellow.

The balloons are created from a tamp in the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set.
This a large card, it measures 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".

Spooky Bear

Now that Fall is here, it won't be long till Halloween. 
I love pairing this bear from Under the Stars with other stamp sets. This time I used Wicked Cool
Using my Big Shot I cut out a Top Note of Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. Trimmed the black piece on the dotted lines to layer it on the White piece. I stamped the cobwebs in White Stazon on the Black for a spooky background. 
For my words I punched it out with the new Stampin' Up! Decorative Label punch. I shadowed it with 2 bats I punched using the Stampin' Up! Bitty Bat punch.

Craft box

I wanted to share with you how I used some of my Vinyl images from the Spooky Things Decor Elements in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog to add a little character to my son's art box. He choose to use the spiders. 
See the third spider on the back side. 
These spiders would look great anywhere. I am thinking how great they would look on my front door as Halloween Decoration.
We also took some of the raw vinyl and cut out his name using my handy dandy BIG SHOT and  the Serif Essentials Alphabet Bigz Dies
I sure do love my Big Shot.

You might be a Witch card

Does the shoe fit you?

I couldn't resist making another card with my favorite bear (from Under the Stars stamp set). 

The hat and shoes come from the Wicked Cool stamp set.

Make a Monster Motivational card

I just realized I forgot to post this card I made using the Make a Monster stamp set.  It was a swap I made for Convention this summer. 

This card looks harder than it is. I took a piece of Designer Series Paper cutting it 4" x 4". Fold each of the corners into the center so that they all touch in the center. Then fold the corner out to the edges. I punched out a piece of Very Vanilla card stock using the 1 1/4" Square punch to place in the center. It allows my image to truly pop from the center. The Stampin' dimensionals help too. Don't forget to put on some googlie eyes. They make this card so much fun.
