It's finally here!




So what do you think? Isn't this set just the cutest ever! I have been bursting at the seams to show these to you. These stamps are from the new Itzie Inkies set Bear Hugs. If you look closely at the bear card you will also find some other new stamps from one of the other sets. Scenery get out of here! Copic markers were used to color both of these. Can I just tell you how great those markers are? I used my Y21 copic to color the SU white gross grain ribbon to match the cool caribbean card. I also used my sakura gelly roll glitter pen on the bee's wings. Click on one of the pics for a close up! How cute is that? The bee's heads were stamped twice and popped up to give them some depth.

The bear card has to be my favorite card to date. I had so much fun creating this for the button challenge last week! When the dates for release got moved back I couldn't show you. I was bummed, but here you are and I hope it was worth the wait. I decided I couldn't live without the copic airbrush system and I have used it both on the bee card and on the bear card. The bee's were just sprayed lots lighter. I used wire to do the stem for the bears flower. The heart bg stamp was used to do the cute background for the bear using chocolate chip craft and clear embossing powder. There are tiny buttons on the bears tummy and a couple of the flowers. I purchased these from a fabric store forever ago and finally used them. The ribbon is SU chocolate chip taffetta. Head on over to All That Scraps blog to see some more samples. Cute stuff! Check back tomorrow for some more fun stuff to tickle your taste buds and make you drool!
