Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Bear

Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Bear Forward

I was having fun designing with the Sweet Ice Cream bundle. You can see my two previous designs here (Happy Birthday Bowl of Ice Cream) and (Sweet Ice Cream Pop-Up). I had been looking at punch art bears on Pinterest and was inspired to break out my punches and create this Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Bear design.

Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Bear Right

For the bear pieces I used punches and dies: Punches: Ice Cream Builder | vintage–Small Oval, Circles–2-1/4″, 5/8″, 1/4″ & 3/16″. Then I used the Stitched Shapes-Large Circle in Soft Sea Foam and Layering Circles-Scallop in Bermuda Bay for the bear to rest upon.

For the bear and background I used the fun and bright Old Olive and Bermuda Bay splotchy watercolor Ice Cream Corner printed paper. TIP: To tone down the brightness on a too bright background layered a piece of vellum over it. This is what I did, it makes the punch art bear pop even more. The “Happy Birthday” is part of the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. I stamped it onto a 1″ Basic White strip in Bermuda Bay. Then I punched with the Banner Triple punch.

When I finished this design I was doing my “happy chair dance”. It made me happy and it was colorful to boot. Anyone who receives this card will smile.
