Hey Pumpkin Mice Flip Card | By Jessica Shier

Hello Ai Fans! 

This week I thought I would share a Flip Card using the Pumpkin Mice set and a video! This stamp is so cute and since these little mice have witches hats, why not make them vanish with a quick masking technique!?

Watch the video here or on youtube

I used the directions on the back of the packaging to create 2 flip card bases one from Neenah 110lb Solar White card stock and the other from the same paper but 80lb. The 110lb card base I set aside for later and the 80lb I used a trimmer to cut in half. I'm going to be using Copic markers today and they will bleed through this paper. So just to hide that I'm backing my coloring. 

I stamped the mice using Gina K. Designs Amalgam Jet Black ink, then started coloring. The colors I used are listed below. Once I had the mice, pumpkins and ground colored I used several markers to create a little magic floating up from the their raised paws. Unfortunately the footage was cut off at this point but I basically sketched out a cloud shape then added a bit of color with a purple and a light yellow Copic marker. Nothing fancy and a cloud die would probably work about the same if you have one that fits in that space. 

The sentiments in this Pumpkin Flip card set have a beautiful font and I used some Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder on both the front and the inside sentiment to make them shine. I love the look the "Hey Pumpkin" has inside the magic cloud, especially when that gold catches the light. 

For the flip image of the mice I used some Purple tape to mask off the tops of the pumpkins right. Putting the tape right onto the stamp image. Then I inked of the stamp which is already lined up on the stamp platform. Before stamping the image I peeled off the purple tape. This stamps the pumpkins but not the mice! I used a Micron 0.05 pen to draw in the tops of the pumpkins and colored this image with the same colors as the front image. 

All that is left to do is trim down the front and back panels to layer on to the Flip card base.
