Happy Birthday Bears

Surprise!  I'm popping in with a fun Essentials by Ellen card today! :)
Seriously though, this bear might be one of my favorite stamps of all time.  It's just too stinking adorable.
For my card, I stamped and then masked each bear to create the depth of bears.  I managed to do this with only 3 masks - so don't hesitate to try this technique yourself.  If you're not familiar with masking, you can check out this video here. 

I also masked the balloons and then stamped a sentiment and added a strip of patterned paper to assemble my card.  I had so much fun coloring in all of these bears too!  I feel like each one just oozes personality, right?! 

Thanks for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!

Loved & Admired

Back with another card featuring Loved & Admired.  I adore this stamp set - these sentiments are the best and the floral frame is just too pretty.
For my card I stamped the floral frame on a die cut panel and colored it in with cardstock. 

Then I added a sentiment and popped a toucan up on some dimensional foam.  Easy peasy and super pretty!  

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me.  Have a great one!
