Some Gummiapan Fun for Swedish House Crafts

Hello, my friends! 

I'm back with a new project for Swedish House Crafts today!

* * * * *
If you're not familiar with Swedish House Crafts, let me tell you a little bit about them.
It's a wonderful online shop, located in the United Kingdom.
They carry a specially selected assortment of Swedish made papers, stamps and dies. 
You really have to go take a look at all the unique and inspiring products. 
They are happy to ship anywhere in the world,
and great customer service is definitely a priority to the owner! :o

Here's the card I made:

I began with a kraft card base, and matted it with the plaid Maja paper, 
of which I distressed the edges. 

I first stamped the bear onto kraft cardstock with black ink,
 and cut him out with the coordinating die. 
Since it's nearing the end of August, and there's a bit of a chill in the air, 
I decided this sweet bear needed some pants. 
I stamped the image again on the red polka-dot paper. 
I fussy cut that out and adhered the pants in place. 
Isn't he just as cute as can be?

He does look rather sad though, doesn't he? 
So I gave him a little love by die-cutting some little red hearts and floating them above his head. 
I then adhered him in place using foam tape for dimension.

I stamped the sentiment on kraft cardstock with black ink.
 Then I cut it out in a pennant shape. 
These Gummiapan stamps give such a beautiful crisp image every time! 
I then die-cut some more red hearts to add to the pennant,
 and one bigger one to place above the sentiment.

Here's one last look at the finished card:

There are so many incredible Gummiapan stamps and dies
 to choose from at Swedish House Crafts! 
This sweet little Teddy Bear is among my favorites, 
and there are several fun sentiment stamps that work very well with him!
They are all so much fun to play with...
the creative possibilities are endless...and the prices can't be beat! 
Head on over to the shop and see the amazing variety!

Thanks so much for looking today! I'll be back soon to share more!
