Blue Hydrangea Card - Bazzill Basics Paper - Card Shoppe Paper

Hello blogging friends and Happy Friday!  Not too long ago Bazzill contacted me to see if I would like to try out some of their New Cardstock--Card Shoppe.


Card Shoppe is a New cardstock that is perfect for card makers and paper crafters.  It is smooth, heavy-weight (100 lbs), and folds with a crisp edge.  It is prefect to use with Copic markers and it won't warp when using mists.  Card Shoppe is available in 28 coordinating colors in 8.5 x 11 sheets.  **NOTE--The Bazzill Basic Paper website has been doing some maintenance and once everything is up and going I will come back and add in all of the direct links.  ;-) 

Over the next few weeks I will be sharing several projects with you using the Card Shoppe papers.   Bazzill was very generous to send and extra paper pack so I will be having a fun give-away in the next couple of weeks too!  So be sure to Follow, Subscribe or check back ofter--you won't want to miss out on this great prize!!  

Here is the card I designed using the Card Shoppe papers.  I wanted to try a few different techniques with the paper just so I could see how it would hold up and the paper is Fantastic!!  I did stamping, coloring with Copic markers, die cutting, embossing and paper shaping.


To start I used Rich Cocoa ink and stamped the image on to Marshmallow (white) cardstock.  Then I started to add color using Copic markers.  I used four shades of blue for the flowers.

Next I used two shades of green Copic markers to color the leaves.  Sorry, but I forgot to take a picture of the bow after I colored it but I used three shades of pink to color the bow.

I used S4-356 Floral Ovals die template to create the die cut.  I wanted to air brush on the inside of the die cut so I left the die template in place and created a mask to put over the floral image.  I used a yellow marker on the inside of the oval and a blue marker for the flowers on the outer edge. 

After die cutting, air brushing and removing the mask this is what the die cut looks like. 

Next I used Gumdrop (green) paper and S4-328 Foliage die templates to cut/emboss some leaves and then I used a green Copic marker to airbrush them.

For the little flowers Icy Mint (lt. blue) Card Shoppe paper and two of the flower die templates from S5-089 Home Sweet Home.  To shape the flowers and leaves I used a larger ball stylus and a foam pad.  

Here is a close up of the colored image and the die cut oval and flowers.  I added Pearls for flower center and Diamond Clear Glitter to the flowers and leaves.  The Pearls and Diamond Clear Glitter are both from The Rubber Cafe'.


I added some May Arts Ribbon Sample Delicate Vintage Lace and May Arts 1/4'' Fuchsia Silk Ribbon from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  For the embossed background I used Icy Mint (lt. blue) Card Shoppe paper and EL-002 Regal M-Bossabilities Folder from Spellbinders.  For the card base I used Gumball ( Card Shoppe paper.  

This is my first card using the Card Shoppe paper from Bazzill but I really like working with the papers.  They are nice and smooth, work great with Copics and die cut and emboss beautifully!  I am looking forward to creating more projects and trying more techniques with the Card Shoppe papers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a Wonderful Friday!!
