For You-ooh card

Feelin' blue? This one is for you-ooh!

I bought the Hootiful stamp set a long ago but never really had the chance to use it: I decided to pair it with the Mini Scalloped Imperial Rectangles dies to create this card.

I took a sheet of Heffy Doodle Alcohol Marker Friendly Cardstock and placed it into my Original Misti; you could use acrylic blocks if you prefer, but there's a lot of stamping here and a stamping platform will help you save a lot of time! I placed all the critters from the Hootiful set in the middle of the sheet and I turned some of them to fill the space as much as I could. I stamped them twice using alcohol friendly black ink, then I cleaned the stamps and repeated the whole process until the sheet was almost full.

Useful tips: If you plan to use a die later (like I did), you can use it as a guide to help you see where you need to add something and where you can leave the sheet blank. Also, if you struggle to fill a small space around the borders 'cause the stamps overlap each other, leave it blank and fill it later after you die cut/trim the panel; in fact, I usually do this for the corners since they are very difficult to fill before die cutting.

Once I was happy with the result, I used the third Imperial Stitched Rectangles die and started coloring with Copic Markers: I started with pink in the upper left corner and then added other colors in rainbow order.

- PINK: R81, R83, R85 - RV21, RV23, RV25
- RED: R20, R22, R24, R29
- ORANGE: YR04, YR07, YR09
- YELLOW: Y11, Y15, Y17
- GREEN: YG00, YG03, YG06, YG09
- TEAL: BG11, BG15, BG18
- LIGHT BLUE: B00, B02, B05
- BLUE: B91, B93, B95, B97,
- LILAC: BV00, BV02, BV04
- VIOLET: V12, V15, V17

For the sentiment I stamped the For You-ooh from the Hootiful set on black cardstock and heat embossed it using white embossing powder, then trimmed it down. I created the background using the second biggest Mini Scalloped Imperial Rectangles die on craft cardstok and I glued the colored panel and the sentiment over it.

I'm using this card for entering the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and the Simon Says Stamp July IG challenge.

I wish you a great Summer and happy crafting!
