Bear Hugs

I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to tackle the week. I've got a lot going on this week but hopefully I can squeeze in some more crafty time.

I am double dipping on challenges today as this card is for The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday Color Challenge (TCPTUES153) and also follows the Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC112). I stamped the TCP Bear Hugs onto Copics X-Press It blending card once and then again for the paws. I then stamped the heart portion onto the patterned paper. After coloring the images with Copic markers I cut out all the pieces and then assembled the image. I attached him to the background piece which was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, placing a pop dot behind the head portion. Love the new TCP grass cut-up. I had resisted purchasing a metal die since I already had the Martha Stewart grass punch but this one was different enough that I felt like I could justify it. That's my story anyway.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp and Cut-ups, Echo Park and My Mind's Eye dp, PTI buttons, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Copic Markers

Copics: B000, B01, BG53, E50, E51, E53

Have a great day and I hope to see you back here soon. As always, thanks for stopping by.
