I learned a tip from Frenchie Stamps on how to stamp this sweet bear with just ONE ink pad color. Instead of trying to figure out three colors to use, which sometimes can be difficult if you're just not sure, just pick one color.
This one today was made with Soft Suede.
The key to making it work is to first use stamp #3 (each stamp is numbered in the case), ink it up and stamp it onto your paper.
Then stamp #2 - ink it up, stamp off once onto copy paper or scrap paper (our grid paper works great for this!).
Then stamp #1 and stamp off three times. It's perfect!
The easiest way to line up the bear - when you have proper lighting, is to line up the center "bottom" of the bear and line up with one of the ears. It just takes some practice.
Stamps - Baby Bear
Sweet Sugarplum - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Whisper White - 5 1/4" x 4
Sweet Sugarplum 5" x 1 7/8" (punch with Banner Punch)
Whisper White 5" x 1 3/4" (punch with Banner Punch)
Playful Palette 5" x 1 5/8" (punch with Banner Punch)
Now, layer your three banners with the length spacing you wish and trim them all up on the top.
Whisper White - 3 1/4" x 3"
Sweet Sugarplum - 3 3/8" x 3 1/8"
Since the three layers of banner can be a little thick, I popped up the Bear and the mat with Stampin' Dimensionals on the sides.
Tie a sweet little bow using the Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon and attach with a glue dot.
Thank you for looking in today. Happy Friday! ~ Donna
