My Sweet Friend Kylie Bertucci from Australia asked me to be a part of her Crazy Crafters team Blog Hop. What a fun honor to be included in their hop!!
This month the Crazy Crafters are all casing Patty Bennett!! CASE means Copy and Share Everything. They are using my blog and my projects as inspiration. They are copying something I have posted in the past. The list of the Crazy Crafters participating in the blog hop is at the bottom of this post.. please visit them all!
This is my Bear Hugs card contribution to the Blog Hop!
I thought this Bear Hugs FRIEND card was very fitting for this blog hop, since Kylie and her husband Bruno have become our friends! It was fun to have a room right next to them on our Stampin' Up! Hawaii trip last year! I really enjoy getting to know demonstrators from all over the world!! And am happy to call them both my FRIEND! :)
This is Kylie and Bruno on their balcony in Hawaii, next door to our balcony!
I love the happy balloons on this card !!
My big brown bear is holding a whole bouquet of balloons on this fun card! You could use this card for a birthday, get well, "just because", congrats or anything!!
The balloons are stamped in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Calypso Coral. I love how the colors mix when the balloons overlap! I used the outline portion of the stamp in Archival Basic Black ink to really make the balloons Pop! (no pun intended!!) :)
All of the sweet little flowers are stamps from the Bear Hugs stamp set, just stamped over and over in Archival Black ink, then colored in with Stampin' Write markers. See all supplies listed at the bottom of this post.
I stamped Mr. Brown Bear in Archival Black ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, then lightly sponged on some Soft Suede color. He is die cut with the Bear Hugs framelit dies. The stamps and dies are also offered in a bundle at a 15% discount!
Hey, I just thought of this.. I think I'll name my bear Bruno in honor of Kylie's hubby! He's on this blog hop too, so please be sure to visit him, and everyone on the list!
