Build-A-Bear Girl

Stampin up build-a-bear mojo monday-1

Today marks the final Mojo Monday 100th anniversary sketch celebration.  This MOJOMARY sketch is my very own (note that I flipped it).  What an honor to be part of Julee's Mojo Maker team and celebration!

Isn't this Build-A-Bear girl sweet?  She is simple and incredibly fun to put together, too.  Stampin' Up! has created exclusive Build-A-Bear Dies, stamp sets and coordinating designer paper for the Holiday Mini Catalog (available Sept. 1).  Be ready to say "wow!"

  • SDC11527-2 The new Bigz Bear Die offers the bear die cut (4 3/4" high), facial parts (I used Whisper White and Chocolate Chip Textured) and signature Build-A-Bear heart (Pretty in Pink Textured).  TIP:  After cutting the bear in Creamy Caramel Textured card stock, I used card stock scraps to cut the mouth, nose, eyes and  heart.
  • The Bigz Bear Essentials Die allowed me to add the shirt, skirt, cuffs and shoes . . . it also includes a jacket, pants and second pair of shoes for a boy counterpart (or a girl, depending on how you want to dress her 🙂
  • TIP:  The Pawsitively Prints Designer Series Paper offers tiny fabric-like prints, ideal for making "clothes."  Pawsitively Prints colors are Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Ballet Blue, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie.
  • I used the designer paper for her purse, shirt, shoes and the 1 1/4" squares in the background.
  • SDC11534-1 The purse, bow, belt and heart "buckle" are from the Beary Girl Sizzlets Die. 
  • The interior gets a splash of pizzazz, too. The "Happy Bearthday" sentiment is from Beary Nice Wishes (available Sept. 1)

The Build-A-Bear dies and stamps are going to be hot sellers.  Wait until you see the Kooky Spooky and Beary Merry outfits.  Stampin' Up! has assured us that the Build-A-Bear line will be extended beyond the Holiday Mini.

    Love your little girl bear too.

  19. I LOVE the sketch — but the bear steals my heart! Mary, you have outdone yourself with this sweet creation!

  20. She is just the cutest little thing. My grandaughter would love to make some of those. I love the small print paper as well because I like to paper piece instead of watercoloring and sometimes the prints are too big, this is perfect. My list is getting bigger and bigger. Thanks for your hard work that you put into these cards everyday, I don’t know how you come up with them everyday, it takes me a week to come up with one. I appreciate your time.

  21. What an adorable card, I can’t wait to see all the Build-a-Bear stuff in the mini! Your sketch is also fabulous, I’ll have to play along later today.

  22. I couldn’t wait to check your blog this morning and was so excited by your design and beautiful, fun, and delightful Build a Bear design. You never cease to amaze me!
