Hi Friends!

Caly here sharing a card I made using the Hippos on Holiday set from the May Release.  I thought I would share a summer card before the August Release – you’re in a for a treat!  We can’t wait to share sneak peeks and projects with you very soon.


I stamped the images using a Copic-friendly ink and colored them using Copic markers.  The Copic colors I used are:  E41, E42, E34, C0, C4. C6, Y06, Y17, R000, RV42, RV25, R14, R29, B00, B21, YG07, G14.

After coloring, I used the coordinating Hippos on Holidays Dies to cut out the images and set them aside to work on the scene.

I die cut the Gallery Frame Die #2 using white cardstock.  Using a pencil, I make light marks on the card base as a guide so I don’t run off the edges when coloring.  I used a cloud stencil and did some light ink blending using a light blue.  Then using copics, I drew in the ocean waterline and colored the lower panel to create a beach/sandy scene.

I propped the inner frame up using foam tape and adhered the various pieces in different places to give the card some added dimension.

I hope you enjoyed this project.  Thank you so much for stopping by the Hello Bluebird blog today!
