Happy Saturday! My Chichiboulie stamps have been craving some ink and was so excited to have come upon a blog hop invitation over at SCS in the Bella Stamps forum and so here I am with my newest creation using Poppy Bittybloom; however, really quick before I get into my card's details, I just want to make sure you don't miss out a thing. Since this hop is sponsored by Stamping Bella, make sure to start over at Bloggabella's blog.
I was inspired by this vase from this week's Inspiration Challenge over at SCS.
Here's what I came up with.
The beauty of this line of stamps is that they lend themselves so beautifully to CAS cards and so I wanted to go with that. I stamped the flower Poppy Bittybloom is holding four times with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them in with Copics and cut them out. I stacked three together, added a halfbackpearl, and adhered it to a stacked ribbon and that to the card front.
The main image I stamped on a scrap piece of paper, I colored it with Copics, trimmed it down, and layered it to a slightly larger piece of white card stock. I forgot how much I love this looks and how much images pop when you layer them onto the same color card stock. I used to that a lot a few years back and thanks to Mary Fish's adorable card she posted a few weeks ago, it all came back to me. I added one of the cut out flowers to the image and then set it aside.
I stamped the sentiment from Mini Words set and punched it out with the Small Oval Punch and layered it to a large oval punch.
