Abstract Flowers Thinking of You

This is another lovely flower image from Alex Syberia Designs. It was printed onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer and then colored with Copic Markers. Once the coloring was complete the sentiment was stamped below the flowers.

The focal image was then die cut using Penny Black Swirly Stitched Rectangle. I love the unique stitching this die adds to a die cut rectangle. Sticky back foam was cut just smaller than the rectangle and adhered to the back for added dimension when adhering it to a top folding cardbase.

A few black sequins were scattered around the flower and sentiment and the card was done. Quick and easy.

Chinese Peony Thinking of You

I like the ruffled edges to this peony image. I printed it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer so that the lines would like bleed when coloring with Copic Markers.

Once the coloring was complete I stamped the sentiment below the flower image with Amalgam Ink.

For this card I decided to die cut the focal image using Penny Black’s Antique Frame. Sticky back foam was added behind for dimension. It was then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase with liquid glue.

The final embellishment was to scatter gold metallic confetti around the flower and sentiment and the card was done.

Winter Flowers Thinking of You

I know these flowers are called winter flowers, but I think they are gorgeous and can be used all year round. I did decide to color them white, with an accent of small pink flowers and love the way it turned out. This is probably my favorite thinking of you card I created for my friend Laina to give out to sisters at church struggling through this current crisis.

This is a digital image from Alex Syberia Designs that was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer. It was colored with Copic Markers. Once the coloring was complete the sentiment was stamped below the flowers.

I used Little B Frames to cut out the image. It is one of my favorites to add visual interest to a white on white card. Using the same die Darcie Sticky Back Foam was cut and then trimmed down and adhered behind the die cut to add dimension.

I recently purchased the larger Big Shot Plus and love the way I can emboss the front of cards because of its larger opening. I used the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder to add visual interest behind the focal image. The focal image panel was adhered with a generous about of liquid glue because it needed to adhere well to the uneven texture of the card front. A few white sequins were scattered around the focal image and the card was done.

Wildflower Thinking of You

This image from Power Poppy is called Wildflower Mini, but when you get it in digital form you can size it large or small. I printed it onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer to ensure the lines don’t bleed when coloring with Copic Markers.

I used gray markers to ground the image so it didn’t look like it was floating in air. Once the coloring was done I stamped the sentiment below the flower image and used a scalloped rectangle to die cut the image. I like the way a pretty die cut lets the focal image pop when you are using white on white in a card.

Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the scalloped focal image and then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase with liquid glue. A few confetti and sequins were scattered around the image and the card was done.

Peonies Thinking of You

I love the images from Power Poppy and going digital allows you to size them perfectly to fit your design. I printed this peonies image onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer to eliminate bleeding of the lines when coloring with Copic Markers.

Once the coloring was complete I stamped the sentiment below the flower with Amalgam Ink.

For this design I decided to frame the flower with My Favorite Things Pierced Rectangle Frame die. I cut it from the same cardstock and then added foam tape behind for dimension. I placed it over the flower image to determine where to cut down the image so that it would be behind the frame in the perfect location. I marked it with pencil and then cut it down with my guillotine cutter. I removed the backing from the foam tape and placed the flower rectangle behind the frame. The using liquid glue I adhered it to a top folding cardbase.

The final embellishment was to add different colored green sequins around the flower and sentiment. I like the way the frame is slightly smaller than the card front.

This was a quick and easy card to make.

Hydrangea Thinking of You

I love the way this card turned out. The pretty background die from Spellbinders matted with a light blue to match the color of the hydrangea is striking.

I printed the image onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. It was then die cut using the Divine Eloquence background die and then the sentiment was stamped in the open area beneath the flower.

I went through my scraps of cardstock to find the right light blue that would compliment the flowers and then cut it to the right size to fit behind the die cut focal image. The two were adhered together using liquid glue.

The focal image panel was then adhered to a top folding cardbase and blue sequins were scattered around the sentiment and flower and the card was done.

Garden Bouquet Sending Hugs

This is another card I created for Laina Taylor to give out to some of the sisters from church. I used another great image from Conie Fong with flowers in a watering can.

I printed the image onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. I cut the colored panel down using a Memory Box Matinee Rectangle and added sticky back foam to add dimension when it was adhered to the card.

The sentiment is a standard font paired with a lovely script. It was stamped under the focal image with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink.

The card front of an A2 cardbase was embossed using the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder and the focal image rectangle was adhered using liquid glue. Silver sequins were scattered around the focal image and the card was done.

Peony Delight Thinking of You

I volunteered to create some Thinking of You cards for our Relief Society President, who watches over all the women in my ward, which is approximately 180 women. This has been a difficult time for some of the ladies and she is trying to keep in touch with them to ensure all is going well. There are assignments made where we all have sisters (or ladies) to watch over, but still it is a large responsibility for the president of the organization. This is the first card I made for Laina using the lovely Peony Delight digi stamp from Conie Fong.

I printed the image onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer and then colored it with Copic Markers. Once the coloring was done I used an oval die to cut out the focal image.

I found a thinking of you sentiment that would fit in the small open area in the upper right of the image and stamped it with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink. Sticky Back Foam was cut with the same oval die and then trimmed down so that it wouldn’t show.

The front of a side folding cardbase was embossed using the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder. I love the way embossing the front of the card adds such great visual interest behind a focal image, which was adhered with liquid glue.

Purple sequins were scattered around the focal image and sentiment and the card was done.

Heard You’re Feeling Under the Weather

This is another image by Bird’s Cards that has the sentiment around the focal image. I also copied the image and erased everything around the umbrella so it could be cut alone and popped up with foam tape for visual dimension. I printed the image with a laser printer. I colored the umbrella with blue Copic Markers and used a Hero Arts Infinity Circle Die to cut out the circle and then added foam tape behind the umbrella and added it in the appropriate place.

I wanted a background that would really let the focal image and sentiment pop on the page and eventually setting on this pretty background die from Gina Marie Designs from some navy blue cardstock I had in scraps. I adhered the panel to a top folding A2 cardbase with Elmer’s Craft Bond Adhesive and adhered the focal image to the center of the background with liquid glue.

The final embellishments was to add Ranger Crystal Stickles to the raindrops and the card was done.

I made a second card and colored the umbrella in a rainbow of green, yellow, and orange. This time I used Avery Elle’s Horizontal Stripes as the background the to sentiment focal image.

Get Well Wishes

This is another cute image from Lili of the Valley. I created this card by pulling the image into my Silhouette Cameo and printing and cutting it with registration marks.

I colored the image with Copic Markers and then added foam tape behind. I used a white gel pen to add details to the blanket. I went through my scraps of blue cardstock until I found one that blended well with the color of the blanket and die cut with a stitched rectangle and adhered it to a side folding cardbase with dotliner adhesive.

I determined where to stamp sentiment by laying the focal image on the blue rectangle. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. The focal image was added and adhered with liquid glue and the card was done.
