Bubbly Bears

Another new bear stamp from Stampavie!

I stamped the image on Cryogen shimmer paper and watercoloured it with Adirondack ink from Ranger (Caramel). Afterward, I cut it out with the 'Labels Two' Die from Spellbinders. Then, I cut out the same shape, on size larger, from a nice turquoise pearl/shimmery piece of card stock. I punched the background border with my Martha Stewart Mini Hearts Border Punch and added a tiny heart shaped Rain Dot to it. Oh, and of course I had to add a bit of sparkle to the champagne bubbles with my Sakura Stardust Clear Gelly Roll Pen.

As you may know, my lovely husband likes to comment on my cards, when I show them to him. (In reality, I make him look at them all!) This time, his comment started out really good. He said this was a typical Isabelle card. It's what followed that made me wonder, LOL. He commented that he couldn't tell which one of the bears was the girl and which one the boy! He even went a step further by saying it looked like a 'same sex bear couple'. While I completely disagree with his statement, I am glad to know that if I ever need a 'same sex couple card', I can refer back to this stamp, hahaha.

Wishing you many happy stamping hours! Isabelle

HAHA William! You two are so funny!

Very cute bears, no matter the gender. :)

Did William have a suggestion on how to make one the girl and one the boy? Maybe you need to put a little ribbon bow on the girl's head to appease the critic. I like it, no matter who's sipping your glittery bubbles.

This is so cute! Hubby's comments are too funny! I really laughed out loud at that one. Glad to know there's a stamp out there for just that occasion! LOL
