Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Today I am showing you a Count on Me Reverse Bears card. It is so much fun and so simple to do that you will be amazed! The sayings in this stamp set are fantastic and that bear has just the right shape to make me smile. With the simple reverse stamping technique you get double the fun! Read on and I will include the video for how to do just that.
Count on Me Reverse Bears
I have only had time to make a bear card and a kangaroo card but I have seen some great other examples of super cute ideas for this set. I think my favourite is from Germany where that demo drew clothes on the bears!!
The neat thing about these bears, besides the fact that they are reverse stamped, is that they are coloured with our new skin tones Blends! The next kangaroo card is the same! The bears were coloured with the darker tones and the kangaroos use the lighter tones. I guess the “skin tones” aren’t just for humans!
Reverse Kangaroos Too!
What’s good for the bears is good for the kangaroos! Take a look at the next cute card. It’s a European slimline card which means it is 21 cm by 18 cm scored at 9 cm. I had some scraps of Sweet Conversations paper left over which I adhered to the thick basic white card. The sentiment was stamped in versamark on basic black cardstock and embossed in white. I love that look!! To continue the black and white theme I added a 1cm strip of black polka dot paper from the Pattern Party host paper in the back of the annual catalog. The main panel is a die cut from the Ornate Layers dies.
Even the centres of the flowers are coloured with the Skin Tones Blends. The outside of the flowers is Daffodil Delight, the one is light, the other dark. Granny Apple Green was used to colour the leaves and stems. I made a spatter by flicking the brush tip of a smoky slate blend against the lid. Works a charm!!
