Valentine Bears Card w/ Simon Hurley’s Lunar Paste Background!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s stamp and color the adorable little bears from the Ai Valentine Bears Set (5005). There are several cute bears in this set including one in a coffee cup, one holding a banner of hearts and the one that we will be using today of the bears holding the letters to spell the word “LOVE”. We will be stamping this image onto a stitched rectangle from the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies (5063). While we have this die set out, we can cut the largest panel for our background and a layering panel as well. All of these will be cut from some Strathmore Bristol Smooth 100lb Cardstock.

All of the coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Wine Red, Blossom Pink, Bright Yellow, Scarlet Red, Smoky Teal, Dk Agate, May Green, Green, Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Gray.

Once these are colored in, we can use a white gel pen to add some little polka dots to the letters and to add a few highlights to the images.

Next, we can add a cute sentiment to this colored panel using the same stamp set and we will be masking the stamp so that we can stamp “Paws-ing to say…” on the front of the card and “Happy Valentine’s Day” on the inside of the card. We can also grab the “XOXO” sentiment and stamp and color that on the inside as well.

Let’s add some pretty pink ink around the edges of these two panels using a blending brush. We can also spatter these panels with that same ink!

Now we will be creating our beautiful background using the Simon Hurley Lunar Paste in a pretty hot pink called “Prom Queen”. For our stencils we will be using the Lawn Fawn Falling Heart Stencils. This paste has a mica base and will dry with a beautiful shimmer!

Let’s also add a hot pink scalloped border to our card panel using the border die from the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543).

We can assemble this card using some 3D Foam Tape for some added dimension and add a pretty bow with some shimmery ribbon.

Finally, let’s add some Hero Arts Pearls in white for a bit more fun and interest!
