Beary Wishes

Today I'm sharing some cards I made with the new digi stamp release from Beary Wishes. First up is the pre-colored Hydrangea Bloom. I die cut it with a SB labels 18 die and mounted it on a SB beaded ovals die in green. I used a SU! petals a plenty embossing folder, and dotted the flower centers with a matching Copic marker. I added some very tiny clear gems to the flower centers in the image, and if you click the photo to enlarge it, you can see that detail. For the final touch, I wove some lavender ribbon through the die cut to add a touch of elegance.

Next up is the Beary Wishes Sweet Rosie cupcake pre-colored digi image. I enhanced this one by coloring over it with Copics, and adding some stickles to make it sparkle. I stamped a sentiment into the banner that just barely fit! There's a little clip on the left of the panel that says "Cheers." The pink panel was embossed with a CB birthday ef, while the blue horizontal panel was done with a SU! border ef. The paper is by LawnFawn, and the pink satin ribbon is from my stash.

Lastly, this is the Beary Wishes Apothecary Jar pre-colored digi image. I used a computer generated sentiment and some Lawn Fawn dsp. The ribbon is about a decade old - purchased from QVC with adhesive on the back. The buttons were made with an IO die and matching dsp, and I wove pieces of matching cardstock and ribbon into them for a little fun.

Here's a close-up where you can see the Glossy Accents I added to the jar to give it a real look of glass. Click on any photo to enlarge the details.
