Peaceful Place with Arctic Bears for Monday Morning Live

peaceful place with arctic bears for monday morning live 1

 When I saw the *Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper and the *Arctic Bears bundle I saw many possibilities for using them both together and I want to explore that idea with today's card, which is also the subject for my Monday Morning Live on my Playing with Papercrafting Facebook page at 11 am PDT. Join me then or watch the replay here later.

              

I did have a lot of fun with the dies, though, and the temptation is to use too many of them on your project. I had to pare back my original die cuts to make sense of the remainder. What I ended up with was a large polar bear adrift on an ice floe just off shore against a blizzardy backdrop formed by the *Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper.

  • On a Basic Black card base I added a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of the *Peaceful Place Specialty DSP of the design that you see above. The base measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".
  • I stamped the large polar bear image and ice crag image from the *Arctic Bears stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut both images with dies from the *Polar Bears dies. I trimmed of the Ice crag image at the bottom.
  • I die cut the ice floe the water ripples and the icicle border with dies from the *Polar Bears dies, then stamped the sentiment (also from the *Arctic Bears stamp set) with Memento ink and die cut it with the Tasteful Labels dies.
  • The ice crag, the ripples and the sentiment were adheres to the card front using either Stampin' Seal or Liquid Multipurpose Glue.
  • The icicle border, the ice floe and the bear were attached with Stamping Dimensionals, or, in the case of the bear, a mix of glue dots and dimensionals.
