Garden Bouquet The Happiest of Birthdays

While searching Etsy for some digital stamps I ran across this image from Conie Fang that I really liked. I printed it with my ink jet printer on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers.

The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday and was stamped with Altenew Amalgam Ink.

I decided to frame the image with a Gina K. Designs Peekaboo Rectangle and added dimension with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.

Peony Delight Happy Birthday

This beautiful image is from Conie Fong. She has a lot of really cute girl images and a few pretty flower arrangements. It was printed onto some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock. I like this cardstock because it has a really smooth finish and you get beautiful results with your Copic Markers and also because its weight goes through most printers easily.

I search the interest for peony images and decided to color these flowers in a pretty soft pink. The smaller flowers were colored purple. I really like the combination of these two colors together.

Once the coloring was complete the sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and then heat set with gold embossing powder. To add visual interest it was die cut using a Spellbinder Fancy Edged Oval die. I liked the way it looked but I finally decided to really draw the eye to the focal image by cutting a gold frame from gold mirror cardstock using two of the same oval dies. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was cut into thin strips and added to the back of the oval frame and then the two die cuts were carefully adhered together. To help align two detailed die cuts with one having foam tape on then, put a little liquid glue on the foam tape and it allows you to move and adjust them until they align perfectly.

Dotliner adhesive was added to the back of the focal image and it was adhered to a side folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

The Happiest of Birthdays Aubrey

This card was made for Aubrey who is a talented dancer, so when I say this cute Connie Font image call Abbie with Cake in her little tutu I thought it would be perfect.

I printed it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer and colored it with Copic Markers: RV21, RV20; RV14, RV13, RV11, RV10; V17, V15, V12; E55, E53, E51, E50; E11, E01, E00; B0000.  Once the coloring was complete it was die cut using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back by tracing the image on the paper of the foam sheet and fussy cutting with scissors.

To provide focal interest behind the image a rectangle of the Neena cardstock was cut with the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangles.  It was then run through the Big Shot with the Darice Hearts Diagonal Embossing Folder.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back for dimension.  The focal image was adhered with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

The sentiment is from the Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday stamped onto vellum with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder.  It was cut into a thin strip and wrapped around the rectangle and adhered at the back with Scotch Tape.

Since Aubrey’s favorite color is pink, a rectangle of pink cardstock from my stash was cut with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle and adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  The focal image was then adhered to the front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the card was done.

Cute Dragon Make a Wish Birthday

When I saw this digital image from Connie Fong call Tori the Dragon with Heart Cake I knew it would make a really cute birthday card, for any age.

I printed the image onto some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers BG18, BG57, BG53, B01, B00; B000, B0000; G94, G24, G21; RV14, RV13, RV11; Y26, Y23, Y21.

Once the coloring was complete it was die cut using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added by tracing around the image with a pencil and fussy cutting with a scissor.

To compliment the color pallet used a rectangle of turquoise plaid patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Rainbow Plaid paper pack was die cut using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX and adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

To help the little dragon pop on the card front a circle of Neena cardstock was cut with a My Favorite Things Pierced Circle STAX die.  It was adhered to the plaid paper with the dotliner adhesive and the dragon was adhered using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Heart Cupcake Happy Day

This is another cupcake design from Connie Fong with a couple of heart on the top of the cupcake.  I decided to color it with purple and pink, since they are complimentary colors.

This was a simple card to make.  I printed it using the Silhouette Cameo with registrations marks and then cut around the image.  I colored it with Copic Markers E53, E51, E50; V09, V06, V04; RV09, RV06, RV04 and added Darice Sticky Back Foam to the back.  A rectangle of purple embossed cardstock from Recollections Embossed Brights was die cut with a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Stack and adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

The word “happy” was cut from gold mirror cardstock and an additional three times with white cardstock.  On the white cutouts I cut off the upper loop that went over the cupcake with scissors.  All were adhered together with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  I placed the cupcake and die cut word on the card front to determine where to stamp the secondary sentiment “day” using the Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday.

Have a Beautiful Birthday Shaedyn

We have a new young lady at church whose birthday is coming up soon.  I found out her favorite color is pink and decided to pair it with some green as well.  I used this cute image from Connie Fong called Little Blossom Holding Balloons.

This is a digital image so I printed it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with my laser jet printer.  This ensure that the lines will not bleed when coloring with Copic Markers.  I used Copic Markers RV14, RV13, RV11, RV10; YG03, YG01; G24, G21; E11, E01, E00, R20; e35, E55, E53, E51; C02, C01.  After the coloring was dry I added accents to the balloons and her dress using a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen.  I die cut the image with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX die.

I actually assembled the card twice.  First with it adhered to some ombre pink cardstock.

I felt it was too plain and so I decided to add a frame using Mama Elephant Madison Avenue Frame.  I felt it still needed a little something, so I cut the focal image down smaller with another die and added some green patterned paper from the DCWV Glitter Basics Paper Pad cut to fit behind the focal image so that it was showing between it and the frame.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the frame and it was all adhered to a top folding pink cardbase.

As a final embellishment Stardust Stickles was added to the largest balloon and then Glossy Accents were a to all.  Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh Sweetheart Mix were scatted on the card, one in the center of a balloon that had a little bubble in the glossy accents.
