Baby Bear Easel Fold

In my last post, I showed you a couple of pictures of my friend’s granddaughter, Tia, who joined us for CAM class last month.  Another friend’s daughter, Peyton, also joined us last month, but I forgot to take pictures in that class.

I knew both of them were coming, and I thought they would enjoy making this cute Baby Bear card.  It looks like a “normal” card when it’s closed, but when it’s open, it becomes an easel card.  It’s so simple to create by adding a fold in the middle of the card front, and adhering the panel only on the bottom half.

The bear looks so much like a real teddy bear that you expect him to be fuzzy when you touch him!  His realistic look is achieved by stamping three coordinating bear stamps in three different colors.

Stamps:  Baby Bear, Balloon Celebration, Better Together

Cardstock:  Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, Whisper White

Ink:  Elegant Eggplant, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede

Punches:  Triple Banner, Balloon Bouquet, Holly Berry Builder

Other:  Silver Sequin Trim, White Stampin’ Chalk Marker, Oh My Stars TIEF, Simply Scored

I hope you enjoyed this cute card.  I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.


Balloon Celebration

Each month, I teach a class at the Hardin County Public Library.  It’s the first Friday of the month, at 10 a.m.  The projects are simple and suitable for beginners and is only $2.  This class gives me a chance to use up some of my retired products.

This card is from last month’s class, and uses the Balloon Celebration Bundle from the Occasions catalog, combined with a bit of “vintage” DSP (designer series paper), ink and CS (cardstock).  Hope you like it.


If you’re in the Elizabethtown, KY area, I’d love to see you at the library. Call the library to reserve your spot.

Balloon Celebration

Today was a beautiful day, sunny and warm.  My husband spent the day working in our woods, and I had a Stamping 101 class, with only one participant, who is a friend and neighbor.  We had a great time.

It was my first Stamping 101 class, and I’ve decided it would be a good idea to have these occasionally for my new Stampers.  I’ve also decided to share some of the information from the class here on my blog in future posts.

But today I’d like to show you a simple birthday card.  It’s based on a card in the Occasions catalog, and I just dressed it up a little bit.  I used the Balloon Celebration stamp set and Balloon Bouquet Punch (which can be purchased in a bundle).


This is a card from one of my monthly Cards and More classes, where we make nine cards (three each of three designs), plus a bonus project.  I hope you like it.
