Who Needs a Hug?

It's Day 2 of the sneak peeks for Inktegrity's new release of stamps which will be available tomorrow! Are you ready for a Bear Hug? That's the name of the stamp image featured today and it's adorable!

With Christmas quickly approaching, I'm in the gift making and giving mode. I thought others might be, too, so I went with simple gift ideas with the Bear Hug image. You know, the kind of little gifts you'd give that didn't require an expensive gift, or a little extra something to give.

The first item is a gift tag on a bag of Teddy Grahams - isn't that a fun idea, to match the edible to the image?!?!?

To create the tag, I actually took the easy route and used a purchased pair of tag bases that already had eyelets mounted in the holes, although you could easily createt he bases, too. On the larger tag I cut a piece of snowy designer paper and adhered it at an angle on the tag. I colored the image with Copics and added some Stickles for snowy sparkle. Then I cut it out and popped it up off the tag. I added "Hugs" to the smaller tag, then brushed on some Stampin' UP! Crystal Effects and sprinkled on some glitter.

For my second creation, I went with a package topper on a bag of Gummy Gold-Bears. The topper was created with a base of cardstock and a couple of designer papers. I colored the image with Copics and then stamped the entire surface with the sparkly Versamark pad to give it an over-all shimmer. I adhered it to the bag topper by using 3 black brads where the snowman buttons are.

Be sure to check out the other Design Team members' blogs today for additional sneak peeks and don't forget to go shopping for your own images tomorrow - on Release Day! Here's the link to the Inktegrity store:
