Lili of the Valley's James Bear

There aren't very many teddy bears as cute as James. James is a stamp by Lili of the Valley.


The sentiment stamp is from Whimsy Stamps and the snowflake dies are by Sizzix. I love blue paper when using stamps with snow and these 2 papers were purchased at a local craft store. My dear friend, Vivi, sent me some adorable rhinestone buckles..and this one has clear rhinestones. I colored James with Copics and I can't live without my Stickles on the edges of the snowflakes, on the snow and around the edge of the sentiment stamp. Here's a close-up of James.


There are lots of cute teddy bear stamps at LOTV and many James the Bear stamps! Thanks for looking at my blog, and leave a message if you'd like me to visit your blog!

  15. James is an adorable bear and he's colored up perfect with his red scarf and matching hat for the winter. Wonderful snowflakes and of course, they need to sparkle! Pretty blue background that complements the whole card, Gail !!
