January Peachy Keen Release

This month's new release of Peachy Keen Stamps is near and dear to my heart.  I love teddy bears and this month, it's all about the bears!  Kathy has created a super cute collection of bears and greetings to warm your hearts.   All of the new sets will be revealed on Saturday at the release party.  Until then, check out some sneak peek projects at the design team bogs.

My first project features a bear and greeting from the January Stamp of the Month set.  This bear is perfect for paper piecing!  His little stitched jammies can be made up in any color combo.  And the faces in this month's set are by far my favorite faces to date!  Isn't this the cutest sweetest face?


Here is a side shot of his head.  I stamped and cut out an additional head and some hair and layered with dimensionals for a 3-d look.  I also stamped and cut out extra feet and mounted with dimensionals.


Believe it or not, there is no coloring involved!  The bear body and head was stamped on Crumb Cake card stock, cut out and the edges were sponged with Crumb Cake ink.  The sponging adds the shading around the edges.  The cheeks are pink chalk brushed on.  Don't forget the white gel pen to color in the eyes!  The whites of the eyes and highlighting are very important.  Ear centers and heart were stamped on pink pirouette card stock, cut out and sponged with really red ink.

For my second card, I created a pocket with a bear peeker.  The step by step tutorial for this card will be on my blog tomorrow so please come back for the details.
