Tiny Townie Garden Girl Poppy

My niece recently turned 30 so I made her a special card for her birthday.  The day didn’t start out very well, as while her car was parked in front of her parents home, it was struck by a neighbor from down the street.  The vehicle had to be towed as there was extensive damage to the car and it was not driveable.  Not a very good start to her 30th year!  Once again, I turned to my Stamping Bella stamps.  I choose Tiny Townie Garden Girl Poppy.

I used my Copics to color her.  The colors I used are listed at the bottom of my post.

(Some of my markers need cleaning! They got a little sticky and wouldn’t blend well!  Ugh! LOL!  I have used them so much over the past two months that now they need a little tender loving care….cleaning!  LOL!)

I’ve had the Eiffel Tower die for some time, and thought it would make a great background for this stamp.  After die cutting it, I added some glitter embossing powder to give it some sparkle.  I “distressed” my background paper and added some Tim Holz Vintage Photo ink to the edges.

I die cut my image using the matching die and also die cut some fun foam to pop her up.  I wanted the “30” to be a little subtle, so I used some paper from the same paper pad as the paper I used as my background.  I used the Stitched Numbers from My Favorite Things to cut out the numbers.  I also cut the numbers from some fun foam so that they are also popped up.

And of course, I had to add some Nuvo drops.  Red Berry seemed to go perfectly with the Copics that I used.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!
