Falling for the Holidays 2023 {BYSHC} Linky Party ~ Bear Hugs ~ Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

 Hello there crafty friend!
I'm back with my fifth card for the Falling for the Holidays 2023 {BYSHC} Linky Party! My card today features products from a few of our Sponsors. I used the absolutely adorable Bear Hugs Stamp Set from Sponsor Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I just love the cute bear in this stamp set!

I was organizing my stamps a bit this weekend while also looking for more white card stock. To be honest, I was in a bit of a panic because I only had a handful of my go-to white card stock and I couldn't find another pack. So I tore up my studio and made a huge mess of it really but I did find a few packs of Stampers Select White card stock from Papertrey Ink! Phew! What a relief! Anywho, while I was cleaning up after the craft-nado {haha} I saw this sweet stamp set. 

I also found the Knitting Background Stamp from Darkroom Door that I used to create my background. I ink smooshed some Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks over a piece of Kraft card stock. I dried my background completely with a heat tool and then I applied TE Anti Static Powder Tool all over the background. Stamped it with Sugar Cube Pigment ink from Sponsor Taylored Expressions and then I added some white embossing powder and melted it with my heat tool. It adds a fun texture to the background!

I die cut the background using the largest stitched die from the Scallops & Rectangles {nesting dies} from Sponsor Unity Stamp Co. I tore the end of the panel and adhered it to a white A2 top fold card base and then set it aside. I stamped the adorable bear with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it up with the following Copic markers:

Bear: E30, E33, R00, R20, RV52, N1, N3
Mug: R00, R20, RV52
Snowflake: C00, C1, C3
Candy: C00, C1, R20, R14, R46

I die cut the bear using the stitched circle from the Scallops & Circles {nesting dies} from Unity. I found a vellum circle tucked in with my dies so I just used that for my card. It was die cut from Vellum card stock using the slightly larger scalloped circle. Adhered the circles together and then I added a bunch of foam squares to the back of the bear circles using the Bearly Art Cubies: The Polar Collection from our Brand New Sponsor Bearly Art. To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Village: Post Office stamp set from Sponsor Jaded Blossom. Love this sentiment and the font is so pretty!
