Hello papercrafting friends and welcome back to my cardmaking blog. Today I’m sharing Stamping Bella Valentine. This card is a combo of cleaning out my scrap bin (background strips of cardstock), a teeny bit of Copic Coloring (the image), and a two layer die cutting (the heart). And actually, the stripped background is die cut too, I share my secret below.
Let’s start with the adorable Image. This is Stampin Bella Happy Birthday Hoppy Poppy. It’s a small image, so perfect if you just have a few minutes to color. I list the Copics used in the PDF below.
As you can see, she has a little birthday sentiment that comes with her, so I changed it out and used the sentiment from Concord & 9th, All my Love, which you will see again in a few days.
For the background I dug around in my scrap for 3 different shades of coral/pink, then I used the strip die from my Spellbinders Holiday Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil, to cut them out. It makes such a nice finished edge on each piece.
Next I used my grid paper to line them up and adhere them to the front of a top folding A2 card base made from Neenah Solar White 110#. I used the white liquid glue as it gives me a few seconds to straighten the piece before it adheres. Of course once dry, I flipped it over and trimmed it.
For the heart I used the Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Hearts dies. It cuts that scallop out, but I used some washi tape to attach it back together, and then did just the outside piece in the medium pink as a border piece.
