Happy New Year everyone! Hope you've made it through the
2020 Holiday Season with joy! I have been nearly invisible
around blogland, and social media for weeks. But don't think for a moment I haven't enjoyed every creation that made it to my inbox!
Here is our first Inspired By Challenge for the new year:
IB#156 with a little play on words!
Here is how I was inspired by that cute photo:
- I was inspired to use my favorite SugarPea's Hey Honey Bear
- used my Arteza markers to add that fun fur
- stamped colored and die cut just the perfect hat from Wplus9 ...
- I've also given him a striped sweater by extending the lines of the stamp
- then used the die to 'lift' his head for dimension
- Last buy not least, I added lots of snow, and splatters, too!
I do have so much fun with this guy... hope you won't ever tire of him!
So what will inspire you to play along with IB156? Nobody said you couldn't use just his stripes, or that hat! BTW there's also a Sketch, which you'll find at the IB blog. We can't wait to see your take on our first Inspired By challenge of 2021!
SugarPea Designs: Hey, Honey! stamps and dies
MFT Warm & Feathered Hugs - for that sentiment
Wplus9 Holiday Cheer - for his hat!
Your polar bear is as cute as ever Michele! I see I've missed lots of amazing cards on your blog lately. I'm sorry I've been MIA but I sure have enjoyed playing catch up on all your amazing creations! Happy New Year to you!
Your big bear is PERFECT for the challenge....he's absolutely the sweetest bear around! LOVE how you added all his details...and the background...and the sentiment! Made my day!
Tell me, did they make this challenge just for you. You could have illustrated the inspiration piece yourself. The hat brought a huge smile to my face. Your card couldn't be more perfect...like a photograph.
Oh my word, you know I LOVE this bear so much! Fabby card, Jo x
Your bear is so darn cute that I had to check on the actual stamp! It turns out that YOU make this bear what he is...the stamp is just so basic! I'd never be able to give this bear so much personality...
I LOVE this guy! For some reason I have really been "into" bears for awhile (marketing?), and this guy is tops in my heart. Your style always astones me. Thanks for the inspiration.
Nope! I could never tire of him, he is such a cutie and as soon as I saw the inspiration pic I was hopeful that you would use him (acutally I would have been disappointed if you didn't lol). LOVE the way that you coloured his fur similar to the pic, it really changes things up!
Awwwwwww...you've used my favorite bear Michele!! And he works perfectly for this challenge!! I can totally see how you were inspired and even though his stripes make me think that maybe his name is Yogi and the park ranger has finally caught him, he really does look FABULOUS in black & white! Cute, CUTE card my friend!!! Hugs. :0)
Oh, how perfect for this challenge, Michele! I have a couple of these bears all colored up and waiting for a home. I wonder where they're hibernating? Hmmm...I LOVE your card, my friend!
Holy moly is this ever CUTE CUTE CUTE!! I adore every perfect detail!! BIG SMILES here!!
He is one cool cat! except for the part where he's a bear. LOL! Love him.
You are amazing, how handy that you had that stamp in your stash, i love your interpretation of the image, perfect xx
You are so clever, Michele! I love how you created the fur with your markers and his striped sweater is fabulous! Absolutely ADORABLE take on the challenge!!! xx
I just want to give this guy... a bear hug. He is wonderful. The way you did the fur is amazing. I just LOVE this.
You and that bear are a perfect team, Michele. No matter what color you make him or how you dress him he always makes me smile.
Such a handsome guy! I love the texture you gave him, too!
What an adorable bear and the most perfect take on the inspiration photo x. Loving his fun fur and the fabulous sentiment x. Sending New Year Hugs x.
Happy New Year to you too, Michele!
Your bear with your crafty make-up looks like a brother of the bear in the IB photo! Wonderful and adorable card! I love the fun fur you added, and you found the perfect hat for him! The snow and splatters are really nice touches!
Quite a dapper looking fellow in your signature grays! Love his hat!!
I could never tire of this bear, Michele.
LOVE how you've coloured his fur and added a striped jumper.
Well darn if this isn't on point for this challenge!! I LOVE it!!!
How totally adorable!!! Oh your skill at colouring it amazing... you brought that guy to life and I love it!
He is the cutest Michele, love all your added details too, amazing card!
