Embossed Flower Bear

The challenge at As You Like It Challenge this fortnight is to use your favourite rubber stamp.  I did have to think long and hard about this one, as I have lots of current favourites (some old, some new) but the reason I've chosen Posy trio from Lili of the Valley is because it's really versatile.  I've used it on cards, gifts and tags.

The little bears are lovely and quick to paint and you easily can fit all three onto a card base, or focus on just one as I've done here ...


... and they are the perfect size for my Doohickey Scalloped Tag die.  I cut around the metal die using a craft knife to create the coloured matted layers, and added some matching seam binding.

I always love seeing what you do with these little cuties Annette and your card and tags are brilliant. I must borrow an idea or two as I've had the Christmas ones for two years and have never used them...my bad!! xx

This is a really versatile stamp - I've used it quite a bit - it's great for bookmarks too!
I really love this tag shape and your coloured mat layers are incredibly neat - you must have a very steady hand with that craft knife!
The card design is really pretty too - I'm very much admiring the floral embossing and really must use embossing folders more often!

Big hugs, Kat xx
