Clearly Besotted Teasers | Hello Cupcake

Hello there and welcome to the start of the Clearly Besotted Teasers for August! The new stamps and dies release on the 1st August at 8pm BST and from now until then, the Design Team will be sharing teasers with you. For my card today, I am using the new Hello Cupcake set along with the new Say Something set. Yes, the hippos are back! :)

I started off by stamping the hippos from the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section) and then fussy cut them out with scissors (but there are dies available). These were then set aside while I worked on the background.
I took an A2 white card base and using the MFT Radiating Rays Stencil, I blended ink rays on to the card. I used Shaded Lilac, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks with ink daubers. I then took a panel of white cardstock and cut this using a cloud border die from CraftStash. I took one of the sentiments from the new Say Something Stamp Set (a fabulous sentiment set) and stamped this on to the bottom of the panel. This was then adhered to the card base with foam tape.
The hippos were added with more foam tape. I then added dots of glitter to the cupcakes with Copic Spica pens for some added sparkle. I also added chunky confetti glitter to the background for even more sparkle and shine.

  2. Hi Michelle
    Well the day I have been eagerly waiting for has arrived and I'm not disappointed. Love these hippos and think I need them to go with the cooling off set I bought. Fabulous card and fantastic colouring as always. Need to invest a bit more time to practice that myself. Looking forward to tomorrow already.
