Beary Best Friends

Beary Best Friends is a great stamp for making cute cards for girls and boys. It is listed in the Summer Mini Catalog, and will be carried over in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. The sentiments from Beary Nice Wishes and Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper help you coordinate and finish your card with just the right saying. On each card I stamped the image in Chocolate Chip Ink and then used markers or blender pens to color them in. The balloon and the Corner Frame on the boy bear card were made with the Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper. I think this would also be a fun stamp set for young children to use to make their own cards to send to their family or friends.

Stamping Tip: If you don't have the marker in your color choice for your card or project, but have the ink pad, you can use your Blender Pen to pick up the color on your ink pad and transfer it to your cardstock.
