Cookie Cutter Christmas Baby Card with a Teddy Bear Tips Video Tutorial!

Hello there and happy Saturday to you!
I hope you have a fun weekend planned, I'm off work this weekend and have a ton of crafty projects lined up - we'll see how many I get done, right?!
So, today I wanted to share with you that Cookie Cutter Christmas is a set that is not just for Christmas and I have this cute baby card for you to see...
As you may have noticed, I love the Cable Knit Folder and doesn't it make a great "baby blanket" background here?
 This bear is super cute but I figured out just a few things that make working with it a lot easier, so I made you a little video! Take a look...
Inside, I stamped off the sentiment from the Layering Love stamp set.
 And finish with some pink ribbon topped with an enamel shape.
TIP: Use a dab of fine tip glue pen glue to secure this enamel shape to the ribbon securely.
So, if you watched the video you would have seen a sneak peek at another card using the bears from this set. I'll share more pictures of that card tomorrow with you, so do pop back then!
Thanks for looking today :-)

  1. What a great idea that you came up with for the Bears ears. It just takes one persons idea and we all go 'why didn't I think of that'. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful idea with the rest of us stampers.

  2. Sarah-Jane, the idea with the bear's ears is brilliant. I definitely will give that a try next time. At the moment I am still struggling with the solid stamps from this set, the bear and the ginger bread man. I never ever get such a smooth stamped image like you got there. I got a lot of tips. I use the mat underneath. I washed any maybe residue away. It's a bit better since I went softly over it with a nail file and the best image I will get when I press the stamp first onto my versamark ink pad. But the result is never as smooth as it is on your pictures.

    1. Hi Nessie, thanks for stopping by! I found if the ink pad was even quite wet then the solid images don't stamp well, definitely try pushing the ink down with your bone folder (or a spoon or something) and try stamping then. This worked for me really well - teamed with the mat, so hopefully it will help you too, let me know how you get on xxx

  3. Beautiful card Sarah-Jane. I had planned something similar to the z fold Gingerbread man card you did (which I loved) for my granddaughters 2nd birthday later this week but using pink bears like the one you used today. But alas life events took over last week and I didn't complete my order so now won't be here in time ;>( Oh well guess that's one for next year, thanks to your inspiration. Genius tip for the ears, you clever lady. Many thanks for all you share, I get so much inspiration from you. Take good care.
