Bring on the Polar Bears!

Hi Everyone! 

  Today, design team member Julie has some great inspiration using the adorable Polar Bear Holiday stamp set from Close To My Heart! Take a look!

Today had to show a series of CAS-cards that I made ​​for  The Crafty Pickle .
Next will be a lot of pictures and a little bit of English text, which gives me difficulty, still) Happy viewing and winter CAS-inspiration!
Today I want to show you my winter card series with the cutest polar bears!
These stamps are very good and these bears are absolutely gorgeous!
For my first card I used the bear on the sledge. I coloured the scarf with watercolor pencils, stamped the sentiment inside of the card and made a round window to see it. I love the beautiful golden stars – it’s a perfect little accent.
For the second card I made the background using the snowflake stamp from the set. Little tiny snowflake looks great! I also create the snowdrifts and embossed it. I think that the bear wearing hood is my favorite!
 And my third card has silver heat embossing. Snowflakes looks very beautiful, especially in the sunshine. Here, I coloured the bear’s sweaters using Distress Ink and water.
I hope this helps you get in a wintry holiday mood!
That’s all for today, I hope you enjoyed my card series)
Have a nice day!
Thanks Julie. I love those cute little polar bears and your cards are absolutely adorable!

My name is Julia, I’m 23 and I’m from Russia. I have been scrapbooking for about three years. At the begining I did only greeting cards, but now I enjoy making Layouts, mini-albums, and other scrapbook projects. I was designing for different russian Challenge Blogs. I like to watch at my progress and I want to develope my skills more and more. I think my style is bright, clean and light… with a little bit of splashes ( though my first projects at the beginning of my fascination with scrapbooking were in vintage style) Last year I became a big fan of the CAS style in cardmaking. I’m so excited to be the part of the Crafty Pickle Design Team and I’m ready to create many interesting projects and share it with people!

I’m married to my hubby of twenty five years, I have two rowdy boys ages 8 and 16 years old and I love to read other peoples blogs, go on adventures, pin stuff on pinterest, cook, craft, and am a reality show junkie. I ‘m a sucker for a little romance or a sappy chick flick. I would say my scrapbooking style would be “organized chaos”. And this hobby has become a way for me to connect with others, express myself, preserve memories and relax with my friends


I will be back tomorrow to introduce you to more talented ladies!

Happy Crafting!
