I Miss Your Face - Covid Cards

Today I am playing along with 2 fun challenges: The Outlawz Monday Challenge: Anything Goes and of course, NBUS:
I needed to make some COVID cards for my daughter's shop and wanted to use my Dare 2B Artzy Stamp & die called Bear Hugs. My NBUS! Isn't it just the cutest set?!! I made a total of 6 cards.
If you look at the masks below, the dies cut in between the ties which makes it so realistic.
And guess what?! Dare 2B Artzy is having a Black Friday sale going on now through Monday, November 30, 2020:
To start creating the cards, I die cut the bear images from Bristol Smooth card stock. I knew I wanted to use my Arteza Real Brush Pens and I thought Bristol Smooth would be a good sturdy choice. Once the bears were die cut, I could easily stamp 2 at a time by using the negative of the Bristol Smooth paper and inserting the bears stamps in where the die had cut. They nestle in like a puzzle. 

Once the stamps were all set I put 2 of the die cuts in the same negative space and stamped. 6 stampings to create 12 bears.

To color I used Arteza Real Brush Pens, but I really wanted to show you the new case I bought for my Arteza Real Brush Pens. I have the 96 piece set of pens, so I bought the 108 slot organizer. The pens slide in and out very easily. This is great for I have another manufacturer's alcohol marker case and it is so hard to get the markers in and out, I don't use it. I am very pleased with this set. I can bring the entire set to my little craft table I use while watching TV with the hubby. It lays flat to choose my colors. I have them in numerically for I've swatched all the colors by number. Great for travelling, but not doing much of that now!
Here is Arteza's online swatch for the Real Brush Pens:
Arteza is having a sale through the 30th too! 25% off $100 of more using the Promo Code: sweet.
I made 6 cards all together using patterned paper from my stash: Lawn Fawn, MFT and Pink Paislee.

Aren't they cute? All popped with foam squares from Fun Stampers Journey. I know this is a small issue, but these foam squares are so easy to use. They come off release paper so easily and the release paper on the top comes off like a breeze!
Well, thank you to the challenge hosts, the Outlawz Monday Challenge and NBUS.
I hope you are stay safe and "Air Hugs Until We Meet Again"!
