Have you seen our Baby Bear stamp yet??? It is absolutely ADORABLE! I knew as soon as I saw this stamp back in April at our On Stage event that he would be one of the sets that made my first order from the new catty! And he did, and then he sat there…until the new CTC blog hop focusing on babies and kids!

I have a friend who has recently had a little boy, so this set was going to be perfect to get its first use.  I used the catty for some inspiration.  I loved the brown bear on the blue background on page 61 – so he helped inspire this creation.

Isn’t he adorable.  And so versatile – girls, weddings, gift cards, you name it, he could be used.  And because this is a triple step stamp, the colour combinations are endless.  My best tip for lining him up when stamping is to focus on his bottom and the gaps under his arms.  That generally sets you right!

And if you are wondering about that background…it’s one of the papers from the serene scenery stack that I used in my previous post! I did use our recently retired Little Letters for the name – but they fit too well not to!

I hope you enjoy playing with this stamp set!

  1. Great card Mel – personalising cards is one of the things I love so much about being a card maker. I bet Xander doesn’t find his name on too many sticker sets in the newsagency, but he has a beautiful card with his name on it!!! Thanks for joining us for the July CTC challenge! Kelly x

  2. Lovely card Mel! I’ve been holding out on purchasing the bear – but cards like yours make it very hard! I’ll be able to use your lining up tips when – I mean if – I get it 🙂 Thanks for joining the July CTC Challenge.

  3. Wow Mel, this is a super cute card! Perfect for little boys which always seem to be harder to make, you have done an awesome job on this. Thanks for joining in the challenge at Caseing the Catty.
