April Preview Day 1: Bears Clear Stamp Set and 2 new Stencils

Welcome to the April Preview Days. We have 4 days of previews to show you before the release on April 4th at noon cst.

There is a grand prize giveaway right here on the blog, you just need to comment on each day and each Design Team members blog. And then we have gift certificate giveaways each day in the Facebook Group.

This month we have 2 new stencil designs, Birthday Dots and Concentric Circles. The Birthday Dots Stencil are random dots all over the 6" x 6" stencil, and the Concentric Circle Stencil has 3 different size dots in circles.


Our first new clear stamp set with coordinating outline die is Bears. There are 4 adorably cute bears in this set plus 6 coordinating sentiments.


Card #1 features I the bear in the box and the Birthday Dots Stencil. I went with primary colors to match the box and hat of the bear. I used Distress Ink with stencil to create the background effect. 


Card #2 is the bear with the bird on his head, and he is looking for someone of something. I think he is just cute as can be. I paired him with "Can't wait to see you" sentiment. I used the In & Out Circle Die and in the center I used the Concentric Circle Stencil. I added the heart from the Trio Collage Die and Dazzle Dazzle Shiny Enamel Dots to finish off the card.


#3 is not a card but a tag for the top of a goodie bag of gummy bears. I wanted it to be pretty simple so I added come circles from the Concentric Circles Stencils and a sentiment and it was done.



#4 is a banner I made for spring using the bear with the sunflower. I had a lot of fun making this banner. I used one of our old Alphabet Dies for the letters. I decorated the letters with Razzle Dazzle Shiny Enamel Dots, the heart from the Trio Collage Die, and the flower, doubled up, also from the Trio Collage Die.

    Oh this bear is so so cute and a lot of fun. I’d love to make a card this good. Your colouring of the bear is great as is the background. I’m loving what you’ve done with the stencils. Tfs
