Hop Hop Hooray!

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  Kelly McKown-Santi our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Mother May !? Create a card based on the popular children's game either featuring playing or create a card for a child.

As soon as I read this challenge, I knew I needed to use my Stamping Bella Playing Hopscotch stamp set. There are a number of fun stamps of kids playing in the series, but so far I have only purchased the one.

I posted a card I couple of days ago which used Hello Bluebird's Skating Pond die set. When I pulled out the stamp set, I stamped the hopscotch image onto some clear plastic so I could see what it would fit onto, I had my other card handy and the image fitted perfectly on the path, so of course I had to grab that die to use for my card today. This  time around I also added a cloud from the Sunshine Scene die set which I turned into the branches of the trees.

I added the "Hop Hop Hooray" sentiment which is from an older Woodware Stamps stamp set.

For the inside of my card I decided to continue my scene from the front of the card. I used Hello Bluebird's Oak Tree Scene die set to create the panel on the back of the pop-up panel.

As you can see I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set.

I used Karen Burniston's Circle - Crosshatch die set which I added to the base of the card for a hand written greeting.
