Elizabeth Craft Designs – Picnic Bears Valentine Card

I put together a cute little Valentine’s Day card for you today with one of the stamp sets from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  (See it on YouTube)

After I stamped the cutest little bear ever, I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. My heat tool melts the embossing powder that I have over the black ink so it makes it a little bit raised. It’s embossed. If you touch it you can feel it.
It’s the coolest thing ever!
So that’s gonna help me with my coloring. I used Artist’s Loft alcohol markers and they’re brand new and I’m brand new to alcohol marker coloring so but I have good news… today I actually ordered a set full 72 piece set of Copic Sketch markers!
This is some of the blending that you can do with this these kind of markers.
I am going to be doing a video series on my Copic journey so hopefully, you’ll subscribe and learn with me.
Now I want to cover up that present that’s part of the stamp I want her to have a white belly. I did this with an embossing pen from Ranger and it writes clear sticky ink so that the embossing powder can stick to it and sometimes when you want to cover a surface like that it’s best to do it two, maybe even three times. It almost gives it like a raised texture
I decided that she’s gonna need some red glitter shoes like Dorothy. “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.”
I don’t know what it is about embossing but I just love it. I gave her little red ruby slippers it just came out so cool, the shading and everything!

Now I’m gonna have her hold a little heart and in order to do that I’ve got to cut her arms open so she can carry something. I got this little punch for about $2 from Joanne’s. I am a thrifty kind of gal. I’m gonna fussy cut which means you cut out the image by hand. I used a red glitter gel pen for her nose to match her heart and her shoes.
I used new brushes to blend and create my own background paper that I bought from Amazon for only $14.99!
Now I am adhering my lid to my card base and I’m going to pop up my little teddy bear with some foam squares. I get these from the dollar store and then they come in a roll and I just trim them how much I need them. I decided not to do anything else because I thought it was sweet and simple as it was and I really think sometimes less is more.
I’m so happy with you her! I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and I will be bringing lots more! I have so much to bring please give me a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel!
Thanks for watching bye-bye
