Hello Beautiful Copic Card ~ Craftin Desert Divas Release

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Today I am sharing one more card featuring the new Hello Beautiful Stamps and Hello Beautiful Die from Craftin Desert Divas.


I am absolutely in love with the way this card came together. 

I started of with some Nina Desert Storm cardstock and began stamping my floral images from the Hello Beautiful Stamps around the edges of my panel. I used some Momento London Fog Ink so that I would have a no-line look to my card.

Once everything was stamped I colored in my flowers with Copic markers and used some Prisma Colored Pencils to add some depth and highlights. I think it added to the look I was going for nicely.

When I was completely happy with the coloring I die-cut my panel with CDD Fancey Frames Dies. It really is one of my most used frame dies. I love that scalloped edge. 

For my sentiment, I centered it on my panel in just the place I wanted it and die-cut it so the I would have a place to lay in my die cut sentiment later. I took another piece of my Nina Desert Storm Cardstock and colored it with my Copic markers blending it for an Hombre look. I used the Hello Beautiful Die to cut the sentiment I was going to use on my card from my Hombre piece.

Note: I really had trouble getting my Hombre piece of cardstock out of this die and the reason for this is that I did not give my Copic coloring enough time to dry. So, if you try this be sure to give your cardstock a sufficient time to dry.

Once I had all of my pieces cut out I slipped them back into place on the die-cut panel and added a little tape on the back to secure them. I added some Fun Foam on the back of my panel and popped it up onto my card base.

A few details I added: some white gel pen to the center of my big flower on the left in the photo, some Clear Wink of Stella to the sentiment, and some Purple Stickles around my flowers.

This has been one of my favorite stamp sets from this release. I hope you have enjoyed these cards over the last few days.
