Polar Bear Card

hello everyone!!! it's a happy day in scrappinNavyWife-land!!!! i received this stamp set from (PK-751 Animal Faces-Medium...thanks Kathy!) of ALL of the faces of the animals on the "Animal Kingdom" cricut's a HUGE set of 50 stamps! SO CUTE!!! and........drumroll....MY SAILOR CAME HOME FROM SEA!!!!! WOO HOO!!!! ;o)

anyhoo...i know this picture isn't great (dark out) but i just had to post this card!!!! i think my lil' polar bear came out super cute! i cut her out at 4 inches on blackout (remember to ALWAYS do blackout so you have a place to stamp the face)...i used a silver metallic prismacolor colored pencil to outline and shade her (blended with odorless mineral spirits)...i stamped the snowflakes (PK-020 Snow Flakey) with silver ink and embossed them with ultra thick embossing enamel....added some ribbon (of course i gave her a bow!) and called it done! hope you like her ;o)


i'll take a better picture tomorrow if it's sunny out...HELLO! I LIVE IN FLORIDA, SUN! YA KNOW, "THE SUNSHINE STATE"...well not today! LOL


  1. Super cute card. I Love It.

  2. Nikki, I just love what you did with this lil ole bear! Fantastic! Hope your day was great with your Sailor home from the sea!

  3. LOVE that card :) Just so you know, I am kicking myself in the tail for missing out on the crochet flowers - I THINK THAT YOU NEED TO SELL THEM. . . . lol . . . I have been trying to get my friend to make me some for years but she insists that she doesn't know how to make them - but she sure makes awesome afghans! Haha!

  4. Congrats on being asked to be a member of a design team. Peachy keen stamps are soooo cute and I don't have any. That's where my cash from Xmas gifts will go!
    Nice card too.
