Hi there! It’s Karen here today and I’ve got a birthday card that features the sweetest, little bear from the brand new “Hello Sunshine” stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs. I chose to make this into a birthday card, but there are some really nice sentiments in the set that would make it suitable for a “hello” card as well. My card also has what I’m calling a mini flip slider mechanism which is quite simple to make, and there are no dies required. I had the thought - “What’s better than one smiling bear on a card?” Well, that would be four smiling bears on a card!! And so the mini flip slider came into play. :)
I’ve got a video for you of how I made the flip slider so if you would like to see how I created it, PLEASE CLICK HERE.
I borrowed that little bunny and his presents from the GSD “Birthday Bear” stamp set as I thought he would go so well with this bear. The banner is from Whimsy Stamps and is called the Slimline Bunting Banner die set. I’ve listed the copic markers I used down below. Thank you so much for joining me, and I hope you’re having a great day!
Copic markers used:
Light Brown Bear - E35, E34, E53, E51 Sign - BV04, BV02, BV01
Dark Brown Bear - E59, E57, E23, E31 Sign - G94, G82, G20

I've got some inspiration to share today using the gorgeous Gerda Steiner designs stamp set called Happy bee-day....
It's such a sweet set, one I've used many times hehe!!
To create this card I started with a white cardstock base which I masked off an oval shape and inked up using Distress oxide ink Prize ribbon. I then removed the mask and stamped a bunch of the flower images!
