birthday bear hugs: MFT Stamps July Release Countdown



Let the birthday party continue! Birdie Brown is bringing birthday bears this month! Birthday Bears is an adorable stamp set full of great sentiments and cute bears. What I like about this set, while it is birthday themed, it has uses beyond!

I stamped the polar bear in Natural Hybrid ink and used my Distress Markers for a watercolor, no-line coloring look. I still need to practice so much more, but with this cutie, its hard to go wrong!

And there are coordinating dies! Die-namics Birthday Bears has all the images ready for you! I chose to die cut this balloon to make it pop a little more off the card. And why can't all my coloring turn out like the balloon? I guess I need to stop working the paper too much and working so hard at it! Ha!

Visit the MFT Stamps Blog for all the news, updates, details, and all of that wonderful stuff! I am on vacation until July 6, so things will be short and sweet around here. We cannot wait to escape to some peace and quiet and no schedule!

thanks for stopping by!

Any chance you'll do a video of the making of this? Huh? Coz it's amazing. And coloring animals is hard at the best of times, and this is just beautiful.

Wow Kimberly, this card is just gorgeous! I love the soft watercolored background and the no-line effect you used for coloring the bear and balloon is fantastic!
