Sending Bear Hugs💖

Welcome!  Can you believe it's already July? There's much to celebrate with Independence Day, family, cookouts and fireworks this month! 💝Make sure you take and print lots of photos so we can add to our memory books!  

Now, however, let's create a card to send to someone close to your heart, but unable to be with you!  😊  We'll use the adorable Bear Hugs stamp set to create our card. 

Our Bear Hugs is a set of 17 images.  As you can see, it's a great mix of icons and sentiments.  As a Stamp of the Month, it is only available during July 2019. It is $18.95, however when you spend $50, you can purchase for only $5.00!  😃 Woo Hoo!

I built my card on a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch card base layering a piece of Sweet Girl patterned paper with Ballerina cardstock.  I stamped our adorable bears on White cardstock with Toffee ink. 
Then, using Ballerina ink, I stamped a few of the sweet little hearts.  Using a super light tan Watercolor Pencil, I shaded over our baby bear and random areas on mama bear.  Our inside sentiment is stamped with the Ballerina ink on White cardstock, layered on the light side of Ballerina cardstock, then over the full  color shade of Ballerina.  Sweet!  

Now a quick note on some of the great specials at PapercraftingWithGayle.ctmh.com -- 
Through July 31, 2019 this super versatile, exclusive Share the Joy Bundle is available, while supplies last.  Of course you can also purchase just the stamps or the thin cuts.  

Think of all the ways these stamp icons will be used by you!  Not only cards and scrapbook pages, but these stamps would be great for teachers--whether you're a home educator or one in the neighborhood school.  😉 How will you use yours?  

Another awesome special available now through August 31 is the return of "Seaside." 💖Bring Back My Pack—Seaside


Seaside is back in a new, slimmed down paper packet! This paper packet features 6 paper sheets and a full 12″ × 12″ sticker sheet, giving you paper and stickers in the same pack!  Coordinating cardstock and an exclusive Stamp set is also available!  This collection will only be available through August 31, 2019, while supplies last, so order yours right away!
