Here's my first card using Polar Bear Cubs.

Nov18 PolarWishes Is he cute or what!! I printed him and the sentiment on one piece of cs, colored with Copics, then I masked the cub and airbrushed the clouds, using a homemade cardboard template. see tutorial

The snow-capped sentiment has liquid appliqué sprinkled with holographic embossing powder (while still wet) and heated to puff it.

I then partially cut around the lower half of the bear so I could add the snow drifts.

On each torn piece of cardstock, I squeezed a thin line of Zip Dry glue then sprinkled with Sugar Dust  from Stamp La Jolla.

My second card uses the cute Button Bugs set. The Button Bugs are designed to work with real buttons, sizes 1/4" and 3/8". The set also includes images of the buttons alone, which can be colored, punched or cut out, punched with a 1/16" hole punch, and popped up to make faux buttons. I tell ya, that Judi thinks of everything!

Airbrushing and the cloud template were used here again. Elmer's Painty pen for the dots on the wings.
