Sam and Olive make me smile

"B" is for BEARS!  Here's a look at the new stamps that the talented Stephanie Ackerman designed for this month's release at Purple Onion Designs.  These two cuties are know as Sam and Olive and will be available in the "What's New" section of the POD web site tomorrow.

For my card I wanted to mimic the doodle look of the stamps so I drew a border around the outside of the card base, die heart and arrow and then added my own stitches with a Tombow marker.  The bears were coloured with my Copics, paper pieced and then I attached them to look like they're holding hands.  To check out some more of Stephanie's new stamps, go on over to the POD blog to see more samples from the design team.

Ink:  Adirondack Espresso, Distress Ink for edges
