Bear Hugs with Concord & 9th Hugs Stamp Set

I wanted to share a card on Monday.. I hardly ever do that!  lol  But I just love this adorable Hugs stamp set from Concord & 9th!

 For the background, I sponged a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of 80# Neenah Classic Solar White cardstock with Tim Holtz Broken China distress ink leaving it darker around the edges.  I lightly spritzed the paper after ink blending and dabbed it with a paper towel.  I cut my Taylored Expressions clouds out and attached them with Tombow Multipurpose adhesive.  I added a piece of Garden Green cardstock that was cut with the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die.  I sponged the edges just a bit prior to adhering it to the front panel.  Next I added my Bear that had been stamped on Kraft Cardstock using MFT Black Hybrid Ink.  I used a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink and an Aqua Painter to darken his nose.  I stamped the sign portion on white cardstock and used Antique Linen Distress Ink to paint the sign. I fussy cut everything and attached with fast fuse to the background.  I stamped the "Hugs" sentiment with MFT Black Hybrid Ink.using my Misti so I got a nice dark impression.  Finally I added some loops of Natural Twine and tied it in the front and then attached this layer to a Basic Black mat that measured 5 1/8" x 3 7/8".  I attached that to a 11" x 4 1/4" White top folding card base of 110# Neenah Classic Solar White Cardstock that was scored at 5 1/2".  Although I know my fussy cutting is not the best, this is still a totally cute card!  I can't wait to send it to someone!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
