CHA Sneak Peek #1: Benton the Bear

Yesterday I posted one of the new stamp sets from our Spring '12 Release onto the Inky website early, with this sample card:

Although it's not yet "officially" released, we wanted to make this available for ordering right away in case you wish to use it for Valentine's Day cards.

That little guy is Benton the Bear, and he's part of an adorable collection drawn by artist Darby New.

Here's a card shown one of the images and sayings from 11080MC Delivery Benton Clear Set:

I love this "sweet" card using 11082MC Bee Benton Clear Set:

By the way, did you notice the honeycomb border, which is based on Michelle Pearson's original idea? What a great way to utilize scraps from your Honeycomb Paper Pads!

This card was created with 11081MC Aviator Benton Clear Set:

You can see the layered pieces popped up with foam tape and Glossy Accents applied to the bear's sunglasses in this close-up photo:

These details help turn a "plane" card into something special. Ha ha!

This collection includes the images and sayings shown above, along with many more to become available on our main site in early February. Which Benton is YOUR favorite?
