Polka Dot Orchard ~ Winter Bear

Hello! I'm excited to share a brand new digi stamp set from Polka Dot Orchard called Winter Bear

I combined three separate images for my card... I resized the tree and the bear images and placed them inside the mug image. I just love the versatility of these digi stamps! I colored the image with the following Copic markers:
Bear ~ W00, W1, W2, R000, R20
Tree ~ G24, G29, G46, E55, E57, E59
Mug ~ R14, R27, R37, E43, E44, E47

I colored before finding my papers for this card, so it took a bit of time to find the right papers but you can't go wrong with Christmas reds and greens. The papers I decided to use are retired Stampin' Up called Trim the Tree. I trimmed them to fit on a stitched rectangle die measuring 5-1/8 x 3-7/8. I trimmed the card stock with the image and used a corner rounder to punch the two bottom corners. I trimmed the sentiment down and adhered that to the card. I then wrapped the piece with a red and white twine from Papertrey Ink. I tied off a little bow and trimmed the ends of the twine. I popped up the panel on a white card base. How sweet is that?! I just love it!

Thank you friends for checking out my blog post!
See ya next time.

Inky Hugs!

  1. Very cute, Crystal! Love the bear on the mug! I seem to decorate mine as well...must admit my home mugs all have different designs on them...and don’t get me started on all my Christmas mugs :) anyhow, I wondered if you had colored the mug because it is so flawlessly colored! Great job!
