Read on to see my card for today featuring one of Stamping Bella’s quirky Hoppy Poppy stamps!
Like my previous cards this week, I created this one a while ago, but just never got around to sharing it here. I have a few others yet to be shared so I will be giving them their moment in the spotlight this week while I get on with some serious colouring behind the scenes preparing some more fun stuff to share!
If you want to keep an eye on what I’m colouring, follow me over on Instagram where I will no doubt be sharing peeks at the colouring I’m doing along with other day to day snaps.
The Clean & Simple Card:
I created my own sentiment using an alphabet stamp set, but this stamp does come with its own adorable sentiment which reads “tea (n.) a hug in a cup”.
Stamp & Other Details:
UK/European readers: the very latest Stamping Bella releases can now be found at Make the Day Special here in the UK. Tara doesn’t currently have older designs like Queen Hoppy Poppy in stock, but I know that she does plan to in future, so if you want to see this stamp or others from the Stamping Bella range included, drop Tara a line via her website. I highly recommend Tara’s store for the speedy dispatch and awesome customer service.
I stamped Hoppy Poppy with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card (my favourite for colouring with Copic and other alcohol based markers) before colouring with Copic Markers. The sentiment was stamped with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink using a Lawn Fawn alphabet stamp set available here in the UK at Make the Day Special.
To die cut the image layer and create my card I used Lil’ Inker Designs Stitched Mats Rounded Rectangles dies, available here in the UK from Make the Day Special. I coloured the mat layer with red ink and added some hearts with gold ink through a stencil.
I create my own card blanks using a Fiskars High Precision Personal Paper Trimmer *, a Martha Stewart Scoring Board * and bone folder * (I don’t like the plastic scoring tools, I use a bone folder and have had mine for several years).
Copic Marker Colour Palette:
If you purchase or already own the Stamping Bella “Queen Hoppy Poppy” stamp, you can obtain a free Copic Colour Map from Emily at Stamping Bella showing how I coloured it. See HERE for details.
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have enjoyed today’s post as much as I enjoyed creating it for you.
Pop back tomorrow when I will hopefully have a brand new fun Copic coloured card and Copic Colour Palette to share with you!
