Bearly Hangin in There

Hello all, today was my day to play and have some fun, its been a little testy on the home front the past few days and I've reached my limits so today I got up early and before any protests headed down to the Studio for some fun. I colored these bears last night with Copics and to be honest I only wrote down the one balloon bear one for colors, sorry me bad! These are called Popcorn the Bear by Crafter's Companion and I'm in love with them. Their gray rubber unmounted but only $6.95 a set and they stamp great. This first one is a special one for a dear friend who loves Sunflowers its called Popcorn Bear's Sunflowers and there are about 9 other sets I haven't got but beware I love them.
The second one is called Popcorn's Gift and its precious with his best friend the duck. I made all of them 5 3/4 by 5 3/4 cards and cut them out to pop-up on the card. I made extra presents and popped a few of those also. All the CS is SU but the DSP is old stuff. I have a rant to talk about today I love SU stuff the CS, DSP, stamp sets, embossing powders everything is great I love that they have inks to match the paper but I HATE THE INK PADS! They curve and as hard as I try somewhere there's a smudge. I hate them period and I'll sell the whole lot for a smokin deal and I have all 60 some plus the rack and re-inkers. Ok I'll shut up.

Last but not least is Popcorn the Bear's Balloons. Now I used Copic's Y38, YR16, YG95, Y18, YR24, R20, R27, B41, B45, B29, E30, E33, E35, E37. I mounted on ?? DSP and popped the bear and two of the balloons off the paper. Then I added a star brad from SU and those mini brads from Queen and Co. I had a ball making these today and I hope you all enjoyed looking at them with me cause their really whimsical.
God Bless you all for following my blog. Big Hugs to all!

Oh Granny!!! These are so precious and fun all wrapped together. I'm glad you started your day off with stamping. Sometimes it's the best therapy!!! Your cards are amazing and I think you did a great job on each of them.

I started stamping for those little stolen moments! They are what keep us going sometimes!
