For more ways to use the Beary Retreat collection see this video. 

Instructions:  My card is 4 1/4  X 5 1/2.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection.  Cut a 2 1/4  square from a coordinating piece of the paper collection and then cut it diagonally for the corner pieces.  Glue them down.  Next cut out the cute image from the paper and mat it on dark green cardstock.  I used dimensional tape to adhere it to the center of the card.  Now using Rich Cocoa Ink, stamp, cut out and then color the sunflowers and leaves using additional Memento Inks.  Next I added the prills and set aside to dry.  Now using Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the butterfly.  Cut out, color and glitter the butterfly and set aside to dry.  When everything is dry decide on your placement and glue down the flowers, leaves and butterfly.  Next glue the gems to the corners of the center image and your card is ready to go.

For more ways to use the Beary Retreat collection see this video. 

Instructions:  My tag is 3 X 6 1/4.  Cover your tag with a piece of the paper collection.  I went around the edges with Spiced Marmalade ink, just to give it a bit of character.  Using Rich Cocoa ink, stamp the images onto watercolor paper, then cut out the images.  I used the different Distress inks to watercolor the images then I added the Prills to the center of the sunflowers.  Arrange the different elements onto the tag and glue them down.  I used dimensional tape behind the bear to pop him up a bit.  Add the green cording to the top of the tag and it is finished.

Thanks for taking the time to hang out with me for a bit this morning.  If you would like a bit more inspiration just head over to the Heartfelt Creations blog to see what the other designers have done for this week!
