Scrapbook Place 3D Challenge

This week's Design Team Challenge from the Scrapbook Place was to create a 3D item of your choice. I decided to get out my new Inky Antics Cupcake Birdy HoneyPOP set and, of course, some of the new HoneyPOP paper. I used Bazzill Copic-friendly white cardstock for the card and Basic Grey Lemonade 6 x 6 Paper pad for trimming up the card.

I always use Momento Tuxedo Black ink when I use my Copics. Just a reminder that the Copic inks do bleed through the cardstock and that's why I used the paper on the inside and outside of the card and I think it adds a cute touch too. If you want to use colored pencils, they shouldn't bleed through. When stamping the image on the HoneyPOP paper, remember to look at the arrow stamped on it so you stamp your image in the right direction so the paper will open correctly for you in the card. You'll need to cut out the HoneyPOP paper before you stamp the images on the card because you will need the HoneyPOP pieces to judge the placement of the large cherry that goes on top of the cupcake.

Copic Colors:

Cherries - RV17, RV19
Birdie - B00, B01, B02, Y17, RV17
Shadow of Bird - C1
Stems, Leaves - G21, G24

HoneyPOP papers were in Pink and Brown and applied with glue stick.

When you work with HoneyPOP papers, you also need to score the center seam of the card with about an 1/8" channel for the thickness of the HoneyPOP paper, otherwise, you'll find the card too bulky and it won't lay flat for you when closed.

Here's the finished product with the HoneyPOP paper! Happy scrappin!
