From the Rooftops Card Set | Simon Says Stamp & Copics

Hello! I hope you are all having a great week! I’m inking up a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called, “From the Rooftops.” This stamp set came out at the beginning of the year, I’ve had it on my desk for a few months, and I’m finally getting around to playing with it. I really love the uniqueness of this set and knew I could get a lot of use out of it. I created a whole set of cards from this stamp set, and I didn’t even use all of the sentiments it included.

Card #1: Pinterest is a great resource to find color inspirations for your cards. I wanted to color in these skyscrapers with bright, happy colors, and I found this color scheme. One of the colors was supposed to be navy, but I didn’t have a navy Copic marker, so I substituted B66 which is a dark purply-blue.

Card #2: The color inspiration for this card came right from my Copic marker chart. I wanted the colors to be more muted, so I picked out desaturated colors from my collection. I fussy-cut the buildings, but I didn’t put any foam tape behind them. I used my tape runner to adhere these buildings flat onto my card panel. However, before I adhered them, I blended some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide onto the card panel–it made it look like sunshine behind the buildings.

Card #3: I decided to elongate the mountains from this set and add some clouds. It’s really fun to alter your stamps to capture the vision you have in your head. I drew in my changes with a pencil and then drew over my lines with a .3 Copic Multiliner.

Card #4: For this card I wanted springtime mountains, so I pulled out some green Copic markers.  After all my drawing and coloring was done, I masked the mountains and the speech bubble so I could blend on some Tattered Rose Distress Oxide.
