SCRIBBLE FLOWERS SWEET BIRTHDAY WISHES

I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut some outlines of My Favorite Things Scribble Flowers and stamped the flowers and leaves with Memento London Fog Ink.  I then used my Copic Markers to color them.  The colors used are listed below.  Next I ran some Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock through the Big Shot with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and then dry embossed it with the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder.

00265I prepared some Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with an anti-static pad and stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things Big Birthday Sentiments in VersaMark Ink then sprinkled on some Recollection Snow Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Marvy Embossing Tool.  I then cut it to be just larger than the sentiment and created a fishtail on the right side.

I laid out the flowers and leaves and added dimension with 3M ½” foam tape, using double tape for the smaller flower.  Some Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles Lily White were added to the center of the flowers.  Foam tape was added to the back of the sentiment banner and it tucked it underneath the flowers.

I planned to add some fun foam to the back and adhere it to a side folded cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, but decided to add a black background from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock.  This helped tie in the banner and made the dry embossed panel standout on the page.  I applied the panel to the cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

PRODUCTS USED:

  • MFT Circle Scribble Flowers
  • MFT Big Birthday Sentiments
  • Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles Lily White
  • Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder
  • Copic: V12/V15/V17; G24/G94/G99
  • Wink of Stella

POWER POPPY CAMELLIAS HAPPY BIRTHDAY

This is another beautiful digital stamp from Power Poppy entitled Camellias.  I printed it with my small HP LaserJet printer on Bristol Smooth Cardstock since I planned to use my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers.  I used a very light grey ink so that it would be more of a no line watercolor look.  I like this cardstock, but the colors are very intense.  I like the blending I get with regular 140# Cold Press Cardstock better, but it is a pretty card.

00264Once the watercolored image was dry I ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle.  I then cut a strip of Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things Big Birthday Sentiments with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it using Recollections Snow Embossing Powder.  I then trimmed the piece to just larger than the sentiment, leaving enough for a fishtail ending on the left.  I used some 3M ½” Foam Tape behind the sentiment and adhered it to the focal image panel.  To add dimension I added Darice Adhesive White Fun Foam to the back of the image and then glued it to a top folding A2 card, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

POWER POPPY FRENCH LILAC MAKE A WISH

This is another beautiful digital stamp from Power Poppy entitled French Lilac.  They have some beautiful stamps and I really like the look of how this card turned out.  I printed it on some Bristol Smooth Cardstock with my HP LaserJet Printer with light grey ink, this allows for a no line coloring look.  I used my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers, colors used are listed below.

00263Once the watercolored image was dry I ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with Simon Says Stamp Bundles of Stitched Shapes Rectangle.  I then stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Make a Wish Birthday stamp set with Hero Hues Black.   To add dimension I added Darice Adhesive White Fun Foam to the back of the image and then glued it to a top folding A2 card, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

POWER POPPY PEONIES BIRTHDAY WISH

This stamp is another digital image from Power Poppy entitled Peonies.  I love the big, bold blooms of this image.  I printed it on some Bristol Smooth Cardstock with my HP LaserJet Printer since I planned to color it with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers.  I have some peonies in my garden that are a mixture of blue and violet, depending on the pH of the soil, therefore, I decided to blend those two colors together to create this card.  I used my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers: 036 Light Blue; 080 Violet; 041 Light Green.

00261Once the watercolored image was dry I ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with Simon Says Stamp Bundles of Stitched Shapes Rectangle.  I then stamped the sentiment from Amy R. Great Birthday Greetings in the lower left.  To add dimension I added Darice Adhesive White Fun Foam to the back of the image and then glued it to a side folding A2 card, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

POWER POPPY TULIPS IN A HOBNAIL PITCHER BIRTHDAY WISH

I watched a video from Splitcoast Stampers entitled Palette Blending.  The image that was used in the video was a printed image from Power Poppy.  After watching the video I went to the Power Poppy website and downloaded several images.  This card uses Tulips in a Hobnail Pitcher.  One thing I really like about digital images is you can size them to whatever you desire.  You want to be sure that you print the image with ink that is compatible with your medium. Since I was going to watercolor the image I printed it with my small HP LaserJet printer on Bristol Smooth Cardstock.

00262I used my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers.  This is the first time I used this paper for watercoloring, and I found that it really holds the color of the marker, so the tulip a very vibrant in hue.  The colors used are listed below.  Once the watercolored image was dry I ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.  I then stamped the sentiment from Amy R. Great Birthday Greetings in the lower right with Hero Hues Black ink.  To add dimension I added Darice Adhesive White Fun Foam to the back of the image rectangle and then glued it to a top folding A2 card, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

SUNBATHING FLOWERS HAPPY BIRTHDAY

The outline for the Hampton At Outlines Sunbathing was cut with the Silhouette Cameo and then stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink for Copic coloring.   Markers used are listed below.

00260Originally I planned to adhere the flower image to a white rectangle, cut with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes die, embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder, but it just didn’t stand out.  So a smaller rectangle was cut from green cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Stackable Rectangle die.  This allowed the focal image to pop off the page.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Happy Stamp and Cut and was die cut from both gold glitter cardstock and green cardstock.  They were glue offset with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and adhered to the front of the focal image.  The focal image was adhered to the green rectangle using 3M ½” Foam Tape.  The white polka dot rectangle was adhered to side folding A2 card, cut to 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼” with some Darice Adhesive Fun Foam and the card was done.

HAPPY-HAPPY-HAPPY BIRTHDAY

This card was made with several outline images from my Silhouette Cameo using Penny Black Big Wish Stamp set.  The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the Copic Markers listed below.

00256A rectangle was cut with Memory Box Stitched Rectangles from some blue cardstock I had in my stash.  I then cut a second rectangle from Gina K. Designs 80# white cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot twice to make it slightly smaller, then I used the Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  The two rectangles were adhered together using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then adhered to a top folding cardbase from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut to 4 ¼” x 11”  and scored 5 ½” with 3M ½” and Foam Tape.

The focal images were adhered to the front of the white rectangle with 3M ½” Foam Tape.  I didn’t like were the cat was placed and so I stamped a present box from Clearly Besotted It’s Your Birthday Stamp with Memento Danube Blue and filled in the polka dots with Copic Y08.  This was a cute perch for the cat to sit on and I like that much better.

SUPPLIES USED:

  • Penny Black Big Wish Stamp (Cut with Silhouette)
  • MFT Celebrate You Sentiment Stamp (top line only)
  • Clearly Besotted It’s Your Birthday Stamp (present for cat to sit on)

HAVE A LOVELY BIRTHDAY

This is another image that I stamped on an outline cutout from my Silhouette Cameo software using my MISTI, with a little repositionable tape on the back of the outline to hold it in place.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black for ink, since it is Copic friendly and then I colored the image using the Copic Marker colors listed below.

00255I die cut a circle using My Favorite Things Pierced Circle STAX dies and then run it through my Sizzix Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I found some matching peach cardstock in my stash and cut it using the Avery Elle Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles.  I prepared the bottom of the rectangle with my Embossing Buddy to ensure the embossing powder would only stick where I wanted it to and stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things Birthday Greetings Sentiment stamp with VersaMark Ink and then sprinkles some Recollections Snow Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Marvy Embossing Tool.

I created a card base from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cutting it to 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”.  I adhered the peach rectangle using Tombo Mono Multi Glue, which gives you a little time to position it perfectly on the cardbase.  The focal image was adhered to the circle die cut with 3M ½” Foam Tape, and then the circle was adhered to the peach rectangle with some more 3M ½” Foam Tape and the card was done.
