Papertrey Ink December Release - Day Five!

 bear hugs 
+ shape shifters: oval 4 DIEs
+ you make my heart soar

Hello and welcome Day FIVE of Papertrey Ink’s December release! We hope that you are enjoying all of the sneak peeks and projects that have been shown and are feeling truly inspired to create ..... and then share what you love!
It's a Betsy Veldman kinda day and we have more new stamps and dies to share with you - the adorable Bear Hugs, You Make My Heart Soar AND the latest and greatest Shape Shifters die - Shape Shifters: Oval 4!! Aren't all of Betsy's new designs just fabulous??
All of the new stamp sets and products will be available to purchase on December     15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.

My first card is a CAS design, highlighting that adorable three-step bear and the beautiful little bouquet. The lovely embossed arrows/oval image is just one portion of the new Shape Shifters: Oval 4 die..... so pretty on it's own or in combination with the outer heart frame and/or the center arrow/chevron shaped die cut.  

I retained a solid center on my card front so that that the bear, with his tiny bouquet, and the wonderful sentiment would be the focus.The flowers are colored with Zig markers and Koh-I-Noor pencils and dotted with a bit of yellow glitter. The 'HUGS' sentiment and bear are both adhered with a bit of dimensional tape, as is the tiny, tied up bouquet.

Project #2 has lots of white and bright and a lovely floating bouquet of pastel balloons in shades of Sweet Blush,Aqua Mist, Harvest Gold and Lilac Grace. The 'Love' die, from Bold Borders: Hearts  is complimented by sentiments/strings in Weathervane ink.

The pretty, tiny-heart details that Betsy has designed add the perfect accent to the balloon centers. I've also added a bit of sparkle with a few soft pink sequins and jewels.

Isn't that 'Love' die just so beautiful? I've stacked three of these delicate dies and ink blended in Sweet Blush....... complimenting the largest balloon and simple layering of this 3.75" x 6" card.

Well, that's is for me today! Many thanks for stopping by and helping to celebrate more of the December countdown! Be sure to check in on Betsy, Dawn, Kelly, Laurie, Lizzie, Melissa P, and Melissa B  over at the Papertrey Ink BLOG to see their fabulous creations using these great new December Papertrey products. 
Have a wonderful day!!

Your sweet bear card is one of my favs! I love how you multi stamped the bouquet background. It may be CAS as you call it, but I really like the whole design. Your balloon card is so pretty. Betsy did a wonderful job with her designs and all the extra details. You brought it to life and will make someone's day, for sure. I wanted to thank you, for all your hard work this year. I always look forward to your blog and new designs! Merry Christmas to you and your family, & I hope you have a wonderful Holiday season. :)
