Power Poppy Rose and Chamomile Pink Tipped White Happy Birthday Card

This is the last card made with the Power Poppy Rose and Chamomile Digital Stamp.  This time I decided on another two-toned rose of white and hot pink.

The image was printed on Neenah Solar White 80# Cardstock with a laser printer.  Copic Markers RV11, RV13, RV14; C00, C0, C1, C2; G24, G94, G99; BG0000, BG10 were used to color the image.

An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  To add interest to the card it was run through the Big Shot with the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder with pressure only applied to the top 2/3 of the card.  A Scor-Pal was used to add an embossed line separating the embossed portion of the card from front the bottom of the card.

The sentiment from Clearly Besotted Fancy Sayings was stamped on the bottom of the card with Hero Arts Bubblegum Ink.  Butterflies were punched using the Martha Stewart Three Butterflies Punch and then colored in the same way as the rose.  Small white pearls were used for the body of the butterflies.

The focal image was die cut using Spellbinders Classic Square Large Die and then adhered to the dry embossed area of the card front with Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam and Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Power Poppy Rose and Chamomile Red Thinking of You Card

Red is the first color that comes to mind when talking about roses.  It has forever been the symbol of love and devotion and makes a beautiful card.

The image was colored with Copic Markers: R24, R27, R29; YG99, YG97, YG93; BG0000, BG000.  Once the coloring was complete the focal image was die cut with Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles.  A rectangle 1/8” larger was cut with a guillotine paper cutter out of red cardstock.  Both were adhered together with Tombo Mono Dot Adhesive Glue Runner.

The sentiment from Clearly Besotted Fancy Sayings was stamped in Hero Hues India Ink Black in the lower left of the card.  An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was added to the back of the focal image rectangle and it was adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.  Simple to make, but elegantly beautiful.

Power Poppy Rose and Chamomile White With Sympathy Card

I decided to color it white, but if you look closely at white flowers you will notice that they are not completely white.  There is shading to the petals that are sometimes, green, yellow, gray, and other neutral colors.  I decided to use light yellow Copic Markers to shade the image.  Colors used are listed below.

Once coloring was complete I fussy cut the rose with scissors.  To help the image standout on the page a circle of green cardstock was die cut using My Favorite Things Pierced Circle STAX Die.  A darker green scalloped circle was cut using Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Large Die.  Both circles were adhered together with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The rose image was adhered to the circle die cuts using 3M ½” Foam Tape.

To determine where to stamp the sentiment from Clearly Besotted Fancy Sayings the focal image was placed on a top folding A2 cardbase and then stamped with Altenew Forest Glade Ink.

Doodle Bug Designs Limeade and Pretty Pink Posh Mossy Grass Sequins were added to the card as a final embellishment.

Power Poppy Rose and Chamomile Hot Pink Congratulations Card

I was asked to teach the 12 and 13 year-old girls from church how to color with alcohol markers.  I decided the easiest image to learn on would be a simple flower design, so I printed a lot of the roses from Power Poppy Rose and Chamomile digital stamp with my HP Laser printer onto 80# Ninnah Solar White cardstock.  I wanted them to have enough images to practice coloring before completing a final image to make a Mother’s Day card for their Mom.  When the evening was done I had a lot of leftover printouts and decided to make several cards with them rather than throw them away.  I will post a lot of different renditions of this image and you will be able to see how one image can create a lot of unique and pretty cards.

For this card the rose was colored hot pink with Copic Markers: RV02, RV04, RV06; YG13, YG17, YG67; C00, C0, C1.

When the coloring was complete the image was die cut using a My Favorite Things Pierced Circle STAX die.  A slightly larger circle was cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror cardstock with a Simon Says Stamp Nested Circle die and both were adhered together with Be Creative Double-Sided Tape.  A top folding A2 cardbase made from 120# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock and the focal image was placed on top to determine where to stamp the sentiment.  The sentiment from Clearly Besotted Fancy Sayings was stamped with VersaMark Ink at the bottom center of the card front and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  A circle of Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was adhered to the back of the focal image and then it was applied to the cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card done.

Heidi Among the Flowers Birthday Card

This cute images is from C. C. Designs Heidi Among the Flowers and was used for a birthday card for one of the young women in our church whose favorite color is blue.

It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and then colored with Copic Markers (colored listed below).

I wanted to use some patterned paper for a background to the card to accent her favorite color of blue.  A rectangle was cut from Recollections Bright and Basic 6″ x 6″ Paper Pad with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle.  I looked through my scraps of paper for a matching solid blue cardstock and cut a scalloped frame with the Pretty Pink Post Scalloped Rectangles die. Green cardstock was cut with the Taylored Expressions Wispy Grass die and glued to the back of the scalloped rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The focal image was cut to fit behind the scalloped rectangle with a guillotine paper cutter. Thin strips of 3M 1/2″ foam tape was cut in half and added to the back of the frame and then it was adhered to the focal image.  A rectangle just smaller than the focal image was cut from Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam and then adhered to the back of the focal image.

An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  To determine where to stamp the sentiment the focal image was placed on the card front and then the sentiment from Penny Black’s Sprinkles and Smiles was was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The focal image was then adhered to the card front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Penny Black Jubilant Time to Celebrate

Penny Black’s Jubilant makes an absolutely beautiful watercolor card. This card was made for one of our young women leaders whose favorite color is teal blue.  I love the way this card turned out.

I used Canson XL 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper for this card.  I placed the Jubilant rubber stamp in the MISTI since I wanted to stamp the image multiple times to get the look that I was going for.  I colored the image with the ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers (colors used are listed below) and then generously spritzed it with water before stamping on the watercolor paper.  I did this a couple of times, drying the image with the Marvy Embossing Tool between each stamping.  For the last stamping I colored the image and did not add any additional water.

When I sprayed the stamp to clean it there was a lot of leftover ink and so I decided to do a second generation stamped image and it too turned out beautiful, a little softer in color, but it still made a lovely card.

Once the images were dry I ran them through the Sizzix Big Shot with the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangle.  For the original image a rectangle of teal blue cardstock 1/8″ larger than the focal image was adhered to the back using Sookwang Scor-Tape.  To the second generation image Paper Accents Gold Mirror cardstock was added to the back.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted’s Fancy Sayings and was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  (You want to make sure that the image is completely dry before adding embossing powder or you will end up with a mess on your card.)

Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was added to the back of the focal image rectangles.  A2 Top Folding Cardbases were made from Gina K. Designs 120# White and Ivory Cardstock and the focal images were adhered using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  For added interest Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold Sequins were scattered on the card front and adhered with Ranger Multi Medium Matte and the cards were done.

It’s Your Birthday Masculine Card

I was in need of some masculine birthday cards.  I am naturally drawn to creating flower image cards, and so when I need a masculine card it takes more effort to figure what I am going to do.  I wanted to used some ballons and the rainbow colors for this card were inspired by the Lawn Fawn Rainbow Plaid patterned paper.

I raided my scraps of cardstock to find a rainbow of solid cardstock that would match the plaid paper.  I cut a strip of the patterned paper to 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and adhered it to the left of an A2 top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  Because the remaining white space was pretty small I used the small balloon die from Clearly Besotted It’s Your Birthday and die cut it five times using matching solid rainbow colored cardstock.

I wanted the balloons to look like they were floating away and so I arranged them in the top half of the white area of the cardbase before stamping the sentiment, which is from the My Favorite Things Delicious Birthday stamp set, in Altenew Sapphire Ink.  I used Copic Marker B37 to add some details to the word WISH.  Copic Markers Y13 and Y17 were added to the candle flame.

Since the sentiment is blue I cut a small strip of blue cardstock and adhered it between the patterned paper and the white area of the card.  The balloons where then adhered with 3M 1/2″ Fun Foam on the balloon portion and Tombo Mono Multi on the tail.  A white highlight to the balloons was added with a white gel pen.  I then used the confetti images from the same stamp set and stamped them using matching Altenew Inks, colors listed below.  As a final embellishment multi colored Triveni Crafts Rhinestones were scattered in the open areas of the card front.

Derwent Inktense Pencils and a Dove Blending Pen were used to add depth to the bottom of the balloons.  I think before adding the pencils the image looked flat (see below).
