Instructions: Cut white cardstock to  6 x 9" size, score and fold at 4 1/2" to create the card base. Cut 6 x 6 card panel from the Beary Fun Retreat paper collection to 4 1/2 x 6" size. Stamp the Happy Birthday in Tuxedo Black ink onto the top part of panel. Sponge edges of panel lightly with Tangelo ink and attach directly onto the card base. Using from the HCD1-7120 Fleur Border Basics, diecut opposing borders from 2 1/4 x 6 and 1 1/2 x 6" pieces of green paper to create 2 small opposing hills. Sponge the edges of the hill panels with Tangelo ink and use dimensional adhesive to layer onto top of each other onto the card.

Stamp the aspen trees from HCPC-3766 Woodsy Treescape, bears and fire from HCPC-3797 Beary Fun Retreat stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. 

Use the Stack and Store daubers along with the following inks to color the images. Use a Dove Blender for blending and fine details. For the trees, use Tangelo, Rhubarb Stalk and Cantaloupe. Use Cantaloupe and Rich Cocoa on the tree trunks. For the grass use New Sprout, Olive Grove and Cantaloupe. For the guitar strumming bear, use Peanut Brittle and Potter’s Clay ink. For the small bear, use Peanut Brittle and Rich Cocoa ink. Use a soft touch of Rhubarb Stalk on bears' cheeks, tongue and bottom of paws. Use Rich Cocoa on bear’s nose. For log and stump use Potter’s Clay and Rich Cocoa. Use Peanut Brittle on the s’mores sticks. For the fire flames, use Cantaloupe and Tangelo. Use Potter’s Clay, Cantaloupe and Rich Cocoa on the stones and firewood.

Before attaching bears, dab some Peanut Brittle onto card to create the illusion of ground where you’ll place them. Shape everything and use glue and dimensional adhesive to attach onto card as pictured. Use Dries Clear glue to add a touch of gold glitter onto card as desired. Attach a touch of Crystal Lacquer onto bears eyes.

For more tips on creating with this collection watch the tutorial at here.

Instructions: The ready card base measures 7" x 7". You can create this by using two panels one measuring 7 x 8" Score and fold this at 7". The second piece will be 7 x 7". Apply glue to the 3" fold and attach the 7 x 7" piece. You will only see the 1" overlap on the back of the card base.

Choose a 6" by 6" panel from the designer paper collection and die cut the window using Circle Basics Large Die. Die cut three arches from Festive Holiday Collection from white cardstock. Adhere one arch inside the circle, then layer the rest as shown on card base. I used foam tape to pop up the circle.

The Bear image is die cut from the pattern paper itself using its cordinating die. The images from Beary Sunflower Accents Stamp Set are stamped with Black Archival and die cut using their coordinating dies. 

For the flowers, stamp and die cut sunflowers using Color Box Dark Brown ink on white cardstock. Color the flowers with Harvest, Pumpkin Spice, and Red Barn, with the help of Stack and Store Daubers. Shape the flowers using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Follow Emma’s video for easy shaping of Sunflowers here. Add details to flowers by adding Crystal Clear Glitters and Frosting Powder. Also, add Espress-O Yourself prills in the center using an adhesive that dries clear. 

Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown.The filler flowers are from Wildwood Florals Die with a touch of Sunflower ink and a flower stamen in the center. Finally, add a sentiment to finish the card matted in black cardstock.

When making the card base first visit here to see a tutorial on how to put this card together. 

 Instructions: See this link to see a close up view of this slider card. This slider card when completed measures 7" x  8. 2 / 16" (17. 6  cm x 20. 9 cm). Taking the A4 300gm card-stock and make the card base by first making 2 folds, being 2 1/4" (6 cm) along the long side to form the foot of the card. Fold this to a hill and valley fold. Cut the card front base at 5 9/16" x 6 3/4" (14. 2 cm x 17. 1 cm). The card slider at 2 5/8" x 4 1/2" (6. 7 cm x 11. 5 cm). 

Find the design paper with the footprints on it for the card background and slider guide. Cut a little smaller then adhere to the card base. Taking the brown card stock and cream design paper, cut this to fit the card front. Cutting it a little smaller than the other for matting. Not forgetting to leave the top of the papers open for the slider, adhere to the card front base. Taking the cream card stock and the HCD1-7120 Fleur boarder basic die set, cut two panels to form the shape of a hill. Ink the edges so the hill shape will pop. Adhere the hills to the card front with 3d foam tape.

Taking the stamps and matching dies make the embellishments for the card. Stamp in Coffee Archival Ink on white paper. Stamp lots of the trees as once they are coloured they will be tucked and adhered behind the hills to make the scene. The fire is stamped x3. The fire flame part of the image is cut away from two of the die cuts and layered to give dimension to the fire. Color pieces using Distress inks Walnut Stain, 

Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Wild Honey, Barn Door, Black Soot, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, Faded Jeans, Older Paper, Ground Espresso, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade using daubers and shape using Deluxe Flower Shaping kit.

Form the scene as shown in the photo. Find the sentiment in the paper collection, trim and ink the edges. Curl to form a banner and adhere with glue. Make a double triple bow from the organza ribbon and adhere to the top of the slider guide. To finish, apply the Stickles to the flowers and fire flames.

Instructions: Card size: 5 1/4" X 5 1/4". Cut one layer from brown cardstock a little smaller than card base and yellow designer paper. Stamp the Scripture onto the decorative paper circle using Potter's Clay ink. 

Die cut three of the Festive Holly Die arch from white linen cardstock. Use the Cut Mat Create 2A and Small Circle Die (they fit the designer paper designs perfectly), to die cut designer paper and Fun Foam for this card. 

Arrange as shown, sticking one of the die cuts under the square layer of Fun Foam/Decorative paper, at the top and the other two under the circle Fun Foam/decorative paper layer.  Stack and adhere all layers onto card base. I use liquid glue, not tape runner, for the Fun Foam layers to make sure I have a good hold.

Sponge Oxide Inks onto white card stock blending colors together. Then stamp the maple leaf using VersaMagic and clear embossing powder to heat emboss, die cut. Apply Crystal Lacquer

Stamp sunflowers from Classic Sunflowers, using Potter's Clay ink onto white cardstock and die cut. Color using Dandelion, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Potter's Clay ink along with daubers. Wet and shape flowers, let dry then stack and glue together. Add Espress-O Yourself Prills to the centers of the flowers. 

Stamp daisy like flowers using Tuxedo Black ink and die cut. Color centers with New Sprout ink and shape using the Deluxe Flower shaping kit and add Go Man Go Prills to the center with dries clear glue. 

Glue leaves around left side of circle (foam tape some of the leaves for dimension) and then arrange sunflowers and daisies on top of leaves. Add the brow half pearls and you are done.

For more tips on creating with this collection watch the tutorial at here.

Instructions: To see a close up of this card see this link. The shutter card template makes it very easy to construct this fun double shutter cards to make a mini album for display of photos. Using 2 pieces of 12 x 12" white cardstock trace 2 card bases using the template. Remove the template and cut out the shape including cuts. Cut a piece of 4 x 6" white cardstock to glue the two card bases together to form the mini album and a 4 x 6" place for a photo in the middle of the mini album. Score all fold lines. 

Trace the paper pattern shapes on the back of the selected Beary Fun Retreat paper. The center and spine pieces for the cards will need four pieces of designer paper each. Remove the template and cut out all the shapes. Before gluing down the front two panels lay down ribbon. The ribbon tie will hold the card base together when folded up. Select a total of seven images to use and arrange on the double shutter card layout. Glue all the paper pattern shapes to their designated places on the card base.

Please note when cutting and placing the paper pattern pieces that they are smaller than the card base. This allows the card base cardstock to form a mat for the papers. 

Stamp, die cut and color two sets of leaves and two borders from the Beary Fun Retreat Sunflower accents, one tree from the Woodsy Treescape and one set of flowers from the Woodsy Wonderland. Color images in Chameleon Pens in Royal Blue, Bisque, Hot Cocca, Spring Meadow, Warm Sunset and Seville Orange. 

Arrange tree, flower and sunflower accents on the card as illustrated.

For more tips on creating with this collection watch the tutorial at here.

Instructions: To see another view of this card see this link. Cut 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" heavy cardstock. Place paper with the long side horizontal (8 1/2")  and score at 2 1/8". Flip to the other end and repeat score line. This will create a card measuring 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  The card opens in the middle with a flap on each side. 

Select the paper from the Beary Fun Retreat paper collection and cut with a 1/8" margin on the outer sides, top and bottom of the card. Line the inside of the card as well. 

Close the card and place a circle die as shown. Tape to one side of the card. Open card and die cut. Close the flaps and while keeping the circle die in the same place, tape the other side and run through your die cut machine. Die cut a circle frame using two circle dies and place onto circle opening (you'll have to cut the circle frame where the two panels meet.

Instructions: Stamp and die cut 2 of the cardinal images using Chocolate ink on white cardstock. I added colour to the cardinals using Chamelion pens, 2 different reds, making one a little less vibrant for the female cardinal. From one of the die cuts I fussy cut out JUST the cardinals. On the other I added colour using my Chameleon Pens. Add 3D Crystal Lacquer to all of the holly berries. Let dry.

 With the oval dies if you were to number them from smallest to largest, the smallest being #1. I used the #4 die from the large ovals to cut one in white cardstock and one sentiment from the patterned sentiment sheet of patterned paper. Then using the #4 die from the small ovals I cut one from the dark green patterned paper. 

I adhered the white oval to the front of the ornament and the sentimant to the back using my Extreme Double Sided Tape, and popped up the green oval using 3D foam squares. 

Adhere the cut out cardinals on top of the full image using mini 3D foam squares. I adhered the layered image onto the ornament again using mini 3D foam squares. 

I created a layered twine bow and added it to the top of the ornament using hot glue, then added the single button.
