Love Sparkles Layout and Card

Here are the Love Sparkles projects I created (more to come):

*Sorry for the wonky photo – I didn’t have time/was too lazy to scan it in. 😉

All products used were directly from the Simply Scrappin’ kit. The three dots at the top were simply hole-punched with a standard office hole punch from one of the Chocolate Chip stickers included.

I also created a card with the Whisper White cardstock from the kit:

I used our Beautiful Wings Embosslits from the Holiday Mini (it’s still available!) and my new Perfect Details Texturz Plate Die for use in the Big Shot. I stamped the saying from Very Thankful (proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald Charities!) in So Saffron. Super quick and easy! I think this would be lovely as a wedding or shower thank you as well.

Have a great weekend! 🙂

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:

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. :)
