Winter Mini Sneak Peek

The Winter Mini Catalog goes live on September 1st. Stampin' Up! has already mailed the mini catalogs out. If you have not received yours in the mail yet, please contact your demonstrator.
I have a quick and simple card for you today. I happen to love the Build-A-Bear line that Stampin' Up! has. Not everyone may have uses for all the bear stamps. The "Season of Hugs" is an accessory stamp set to the original Beary Best Friends Stamp Set. It is also a great set all on it's own. The paw print on several of the items can be used for Dogs or Cats as well.
Here I used just the tree image, the small bulb image and one of the sentiments. I stamped the tree onto Old Olive Cardstock and then colored in portions with a Real Red Stampin' Write marker. The Old Olive somewhat tints the Real Red so it matches the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock used for the base. I cut the tree out and popped it up with some dimensionals. You can use several of the other images in this set for other holidays or occassions without using the bear it was designed to go with.
Products Used:
Stamps: Season of Hugs
Colors: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Naturals White
Accessories: Markers (Real Red, Chocolate Chip (tree trunk), Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Silver Brads, Dimensionals, Paper Snips

Be sure to come back tomorrow for a lot of fun. The Stampin' Addicts Website is hosting a Winter Mini Blog Hop. You will get the chance to see some fabulous uses for many of the products in the Winter Mini Catalog. I will be showcasing the Embossing Folders. I am the first stop on the official Blog Hop, so check back this weekend and have some fun.
