Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop - Baby Love

Hi everyone and welcome to the blog hop for April. Our theme this month is Baby Love.

I was very excited to win the Baby Bear stamp set as my prize at the recent On Stage event on the Gold Coast. This event is for demonstrators only and it was a great weekend. We were given an advance copy of the next Annual Catalogue as well as some cool new product!!

So here's a sneak peek for you of the Baby Bear stamp set with my project:

Isn't he cute?  Baby Bear is a 3-step stamp set - there are 3 layers of stamping to make this bear.  I find it MUCH easier to stamp in reverse order - i.e. start with the darkest colour first and work back towards the lighter colours over the top.  It is much easier to see through the stamp this way.
You do need to be quite precise when stamping with these types of images, otherwise you can get a blurry image.  So just take your time and have a  few tries on some scrap paper first to get the hang of it.
I am just loving these Photo Realistic stamps.  If you like this look, another great stamp set I can recommend is the Picture Perfect stamp set currently available in the Occasions Catalogue.

Stamps: Baby Bear (will be available from June 1st in the new annual catalogue)
