My personal project for the blog hop is this adorable little bear. His Honey Pot and baby bear reminded me of Winne The Pooh so I chose a red/yellow color scheme which reminds me of Pooh!

This adorable bear is part of the "Have a Beary Great Day" Stamp Set by Polkadoodles.

The baby bear in the honey pot was masked using the LDRS Masking Paper by Simply following these directions:

Step 1: Stamp the honey pot onto a white card stock and onto a piece of masking paper. 

Step 2: Cut out the mask image along the black outline

Step 3: Peel the backing off the masking paper and use it to cover the honey pot stamped onto the card stock.

Step 4: Now stamp baby bear onto of the jar making sure to over lap the top of the jar. Now his cute face is peaking out from inside the honey pot.

I have used Alcohol markers to color the stamps in my project. For the beautiful multi layer look I have used the brand new Scalloped Rectangle Frame Set. This stamp set has 8 layering dies and is perfect for A2 size cards.

Hop along and leave a comment so you could win!
