"Try It Different" Tuesday: Pampered Benton

This week's featured card on the main Inky website contains a fun fingerpainting-style background panel. But my favorite part is Benton's Cupcake (8744G in wood mounted), the little bear holding his sweet baked treat, which is topped with "sprinkles" made using a white gel pen:

Our friend Michelle Pearson created it using 11083MC Pampered Benton Clear Set (drawn by artist Darby New):

She also made this soothing card, with the Benton's Bath stamp (8821K in wood mounted) from the same set:

Those sparkly Stickles-covered bubbles make me smile. But a real bath, in the form of fragranced salts packaged in this adorable clear box, is even better:

Wouldn't this card and box make a perfect gift ensemble?

For a few more ideas using Benton stamps from different sets in this collection, take a look at the charming cards below that were whipped up by the talented Sue Nelson.

For example, "hive" been waiting to share this one with you for a while:

Oops, I'm "beary" sorry for that bad pun:

Just kidding, not really. Ha ha! It's all in good fun...

Don't you love the soft coloring on this bear:

Thanks a bunch for visiting us today, Inky friends!
