Now that all the details are out of the way, here's my hop project ....



This is a tent card with a Kraft base.  I took a digi from The Cuting Cafe and printed it using my Silhouette software.  Using your Silhouette software for printing digis you're going to use with die cuts helps a lot when it comes to sizing.  Copic colored the two robins and the tree branch and cut it out.  I cut out a large flag in the Crate Paper floral cardstock on my paper trimmer and adhered it to the Kraft base.  I then cut out a tree on my Silhouette on white cardstock.  Let me tell you, each and every leaf was hand colored.  Tedious yes, but I love the dimension it gave them!  I took the tree trunk and stamped Hero Arts' Designer Woodgrain rubber stamp on it in brown Memento Ink.  Then went over it with various brown Copics.   I then cut a strip of the same cardstock I used for the floral flag, but used the other side of it and stamped the sentiment from the new Lawn stamp set called Grand Greetings .  All the cardstock was edged in Hero Arts Wet Cement for continuity.

Copics used: B00, BG000, E31, E55, E25, E27, E55, YR02, YR07, C2, G14, G17, G000, G29, G99

It's time to get hopping. Remember the Grand-Prize rules! :)

  38. Hi Gaby,
    This is so pretty! I love that tree and how it stands off the paper like that. This is a really fun design. I love what you did with it! I'm a new follower and a member of CCR's DT but I didn't join the hop this time. Glad I got to find your blog through it though! Can't wait to check out more of your projects. :0)
