I just got this stamp set at the Stampin’up Conference this week-end, and I was excited to use it for the first time! If you like coloring (like I do!), this is a great stamp to have! This stamp called “Bearing Gifts” is a single stamp and only cost $12.95! I used a combination of the regular Stampin’ Markers and the Blendabilities to color my card. I also used the Blender pen with some Soft Sky ink to add a little shadow on the bear. (Can you see it?) The background is embossed with the new Lucky Stars embossing folder.
