Adorable Tear Bear

I finally got a chance to play with the adorable Peachy Keen - CottageCutz Tear Bear. It is SO cute and the creative possibilities are endless. I LOVE adorable, cuddly, little bears and wanted to make mine soft and cuddly too. Isn't she sweet?

Here is a close up where you can see the soft fun flock on the sweet little bear.

This card was made using the Peachy Keen - Cottage Cutz Tear Bear die and coordinating stamps. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the background paper and to cut out my die. I used my Xyron to apply adhesive and fun flock to the bear. I stamped the face with Staz-on ink and it stamped but it was a little bit too faint, because of the fun flock, so I used my bic ultra thin pen to carefully darken in the cute stamped face. I chalked the edges of the bear and added some blush and pink to the inner ears. I also added a stamped sentiment and some ribbon.

If you are interested below is a little more information on using your Xyron to apply glitter or fun flock:
I have enjoyed using my Xyron to apply glitter and fun flock before but on occasion a piece will come out without adhesive covering it completely. When that happened I thought I had to recut the piece and try running it through the Xyron again to get good coverage. I watched an awesome video by Kimberly at My Craft Spot that suggested just adding a little tape adhesive to the unapplied area. I tried it because a couple of my pieces didn't come out completely covered and it worked like a charm. If you are interest in seeing a video tutorial on this process click on this link. She does an awesome job.
