Check Out a Holiday Duo from Yan You’ll Bearly Be Able to Resist

We have one last post from Yan today before we start our December Release Countdown tomorrow. It’s been such a pleasure to see her work with the November Release!

Hello everyone, I’m here today with my last post as a guest designer for My Favorite Things. Today I have two cards to share with you.

For the first card, I used the Beary Best Friends stamp set. I watercolored the image and cut with the coordinating Die-namics. Then I made a decorative panel by cutting the Snowflake Window Die-namics twice, aligning the second cut with the first to create a larger surface. Next, I blended the rainbow panel with Distress Oxide Inks using the Cloud Stencil. On the same panel, I die cut a circle, adhered it to the card front, and layered the snowflake element on top of it.

I stamped some fish on white card stock and colored them. Once the images dried, I used the Celebrate Die-namics to die cut the sentiment. To finish, I heat embossed the sentiment onto vellum, layered it over the snowflake panel, and attached the rainbow panel and the die-cut bear as shown using foam tape.

For the second card, I created a clean and simple card. I used the Unbearably Cute stamp set and colored the image using watercolor. I die cut pink card stock multiple times using the Christmas Tree Window Die-namics to create the background. Lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum and attached the pink panel and the colored images as shown with foam tape.

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed these cards. Thank you so much to the MFT team for having me as a guest designer. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!


Bears and seasonal window dies…an unexpected combination that totally works. Pattern building with peek-a-boo windows is an inspiring idea and taking advantage of the symmetrical property of the Snowflake Window Die-namics to create a larger panel is brilliant. I’m ready to put both ideas into action; if you are too, tag #mftstamps when you share so we can see how you interpreted Yan’s ideas!

    Love your work, the first card with the pastel colors is truly stunning for a playful card like this. I love it. The second card is my faborite the layering and the open spaces really gives the card depth and the sleeping polar bear is the icing on the cake. Cute, cute, cute..
