VIDEO | Bear Hugs

Hello there, I am delighted to be over on the My Favorite Things YouTube channel today, sharing a card using the adorable new Bear Hugs set. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off my card by stamping the bear, cart with flowers and butterfly from the MFT Bear Hugs Stamp Set onto white cardstock using black ink. I then coloured the them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies section for reference). They were then die cut out using the MFT Bear Hugs Die-namics

I took a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel of white cardstock and placed the MFT Rectangle Extraordinaire Stencil on top, holding down with Post-It Tape. I added ink blending inside the mask to create a simplified sunset background. I used Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries, adding the darker colour at the top and fading to the white of the cardstock at the bottom. 

I removed the mask and stamped a sentiment at the top from the MFT Bear Hugs set with Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. Once the ink was dry, I adhered the panel onto a US A2 sized white card base with tape runner adhesive. The bear, cart and butterfly were adhered at the bottom using thin foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights and dots, as well as black glaze pen to the bear's eyes and nose. 


Here is the video showing how I made the card:
