Stampin stars 2016/17 annual catalogue blog hop

Have you seen it yet? ?
The new Stampin'Up annual catalogue. ..boy is it a wowzer! ,
To celebrate we are taking part in a blog hop ! If you've arrived here via Fiona's fantastic post you'll know what I mean 😉 if not here's  the link to her post
One of the bonuses of being a Stampin Up demonstrator is that you get the chance to attend not one but two national train events each year.
 At the April event in Telford I was lucky enough to recieve  a few sneek peek products from the annual catalogue 😉  one of which I am going to share some samples with today! And here it is.....One of the cute stamps in the whole catalogue. ...
Called Baby Bear this 3 step stamping set is just soooo adorable!  Available in  photopolymer this set is a breeze to create with and the results are so photo realistic! 
Here are my samples made using the Baby Bear set 
In the first sample I kept it really simple and loved it so much I've stepped it up a little .

Here's a close up of the bear I stamped the first layer in Sahara sand,  the second in  crumb cake and the third in soft suede inks.
Then just for fun I went all out...fussy cutting, scoring, layering and lots of basic pearls! 

Well I hope you've enjoyed this post . Please hop over to see what the lovely  Mandy has created 😊. Here's the link
Have a great weekend and have fun
