I've made this card using stamps that were a freebie with Making Cards magazine a year or two ago.
After stamping the bear, I masked him to stamp the balloons (because I didn't want the poor little bear to get his snout tangled up in the strings) then coloured him in with Promarkers, using a blender to remove a little of the ink to form a highlight on the balloons. Then I cut him and some matching layers out with Gummiapan nesting rectangle dies and added a die cut sentiment, using a First Edition Happy Birthday die. The die doesn't include a dot for the "i". Now I know they are fiddly but an undotted i looks all wrong, so i found a tiny green gem to do the job. I finished with an assortment of buttons including a couple of really sweet shaped ones - but is it just me, or is that bear button wearing a hamburger on his head?
