Cards for Kids and FREE Ink Pads!

As we count down to the FINAL DAYS of Sale-A-Bration I wanted to show you a few cards I made for “Cards for Kids”. If you haven’t heard about this fantastic joy-giving event check out Jennifer McGuire’s blog here.

These little cards are my new favorite size (4×4″). I love that I can put them in Stampin’ UP! clear envelopes (just fold the securing flap a bit to create a square envelope) and *hopefully* make these darling children laugh. 🙂

Each of these QUICK cards was made with SU! Kraft cardstock, DSP (Designer Series Paper) from the Sweet Pea DSP pack (in the Spring Mini Catalog). I used the Very Thankful stamp set for the turtles (the sale of this stamp set benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities!) and colored them with colored pencils. For the orange I used Tart & Tangy – which I got FOR FREE during SAB!! I embossed the orange and matted it on a SU! Scalloped Circle punch in Pumpkin Pie textured cardstock. The only thing not SU! was the word-bubble punch.

Did you know that you can choose your FREE STAMPS from over 75 sets in the current catalog? You receive a FREE STAMP SET with every $50 you purchase from now through WEDNESDAY!!

Chocolate Bunnies

I LOVE this chocolate bunny! It’s only fitting… my day job is at a candy company! 😉 I have a bunch of mini gifts in the works with this little guy (yes, it’s a boy, lol) but wanted to share some of my new Chocolate Bunny Embellishments I have at my Etsy shoppe and how I made them.

I stamped these guys on Kraft cardstock twice – once in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink and once with Versamark and embossed him with clear embossing powder. I then carefully cut around him and applied a diminsional to the back. The bottom layer on the diminsional was left intact, and glued to a clear sheet (cut to size) so you just simply peel the bunny off the backing sheet and apply to your project. SIMPLE! Here are the products I used:

As an extension of my mission to make stamping and scrapbooking super simple I have opened a shoppe on Etsy! At http://mamabearstamps.etsy.com you’ll find hand-stamped and handmade embellishments, cards, and more. My embellishments already have foam tape applied to the back, so you can simply peel-and-stick for fast embellishments!

Check it out and let me know what you think! Looking for a specific theme or embellishment? Just let me know! 🙂

I hope you’re having a great week! Only one more until Spring Break (aka Mom’s Week Off!) here! 😉 ~T~

Howdy!

I'm Tammy Moore, a scrapbooking fanatic in Austin, TX. Thanks for stopping by my little space on the web. Feel free to contact me any time!

Why “Mama Bear Stamps”?

A few years ago my daughter and husband gave me the nickname "Mama Bear" and I've used it ever since! This year I even conqured my fear of needles and had the Chinese symbols of mother and bear tattooed above my right ankle. When I started this blog, I knew I wanted to go by my nickname: Mama Bear. But you can call me Tammy if you'd like. :)
