I really enjoyed playing with the Birthday Bears stamp set – the images are so versatile and so much fun to colour! I began by stamping one of the larger bears directly onto the card front and then onto some masking paper. I fussy cut the one on masking paper, peeled off the backing sheet and then stuck it on top of the one on the card.

I sponged some Distress Inks onto the card, going over the masked area to create a clean blend. When I was happy, I removed the mask to reveal the bear and coloured him in with more Distress Inks.

I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the gifts he was holding and then set aside. I die-cut the Jumbo Peek-a-Boo Circle Window out of a panel of white cardstock and foam mounted it to the card base, revealing the painted bear through the aperture.

I stamped another one of the bears onto a scrap piece of cardstock and coloured him in before fussy-cutting and foam mounting to the card. I then added a sentiment from the same set next to the smaller bear, and then stamped the flag image repeatedly onto scraps of inky panels.

I fussy-cut a few of the flags out and adhered them in the corner to finish up the card!
