Spring Birthday Annabel

I graduated High School in 1970, flower power is a sign of my time.  When I saw this stamp I knew I need to have it.

This card is for Annabel.  She got a new little puppy a few months ago and is in love with it, so I decided to add this cute little dog from My Favorite Things Our Story.  The focal image is another digital stamp from La-La Land Crafts called Spring Molli.  Once it was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and the dog image stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto they were die cut with the Silhouette Cameo using the PIXScan mat.

It was colored with blue Copic Markers since that is her favorite color (see below).  I found the blue patterned paper in the Recollections Bright and Basic 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  To set off the focal image a frame was cut from the 80# White Cardstock using the Mama Elephant Madison Avenue Frame.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back for dimension.

The sentiment is from C.C. Designs Amy R Great Birthday Greetings. The patterned paper was cut just smaller than the frame and the sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  The patterned paper was then added to the back of the frame and then adhered to the front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

The focal image and the dog were adhered to the card front using 3M ½” Foam Tape and the card was done.

What young lady now days isn’t into using her cell phone.  I think the La-La Land Crafts digital image Selfie Molli is so in tune with all of us today.  It was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with an HP Laser Printer, which ensures the ink won’t bleed when coloring with Copic Markers.  Once printed it was die cut using the Silhouette Cameo and the PIXScan Mat.

Copic Markers BG49, BG15, BG13, BG11; C1, C3; E33, E53, E50; E11, E00, E000, R20 were used to color the image, since Becca’s favorite color is teal/turquoise blue.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back.

To assemble the card I found some patterned paper from my stash that would match the color scheme and die cut it using the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle.  I found a scraped of teal cardstock to mat the patterned paper and help it pop on the card front.  It was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock using the Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The focal image was placed on the card front to determine where to stamp the sentiments, which is from Penny Black Sprinkles & Smiles.  To compliment the color scheme, Gina K.

Bailey is an amazing big sister and an example to all the girls in the young women organization.  Her favorite colors are blue and coral.  I printed the La-La Land Crafts Sweet Molli with a HP Laser Printer onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock.  It was then die cut using the Silhouette Cameo and the PIXScan Mat.  It was then colored with Copic Markers (colors listed below).

I found some coordinating patterned paper in the My Mind’s Eye Hello Gorgeous 6 x 6 Paper Pad and die cut it with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.  Whenever you are working with patterned paper it is good to give the focal image a neutral background, so an oval of white cardstock was cut with a My Favorite Things Pierced Oval and then dry embossed using the Darice Hearts Diagonal Embossing Folder.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The patterned paper rectangle was adhered to the front with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  The focal image was adhered to the front by adding 3M ½” Foam Tape to the back.

Artist Emma Birthday

Emma is a sweetheart and a talented painter.  She taught a watercolor class to the girls in her age group.  When I saw the Artist Marci stamp from La-La Land Crafts I knew it would be perfect for her.

I printed the image on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using a laser printer, which ensure that the image will not bleed when colored with Copic Markers.  I modified the stamp by drawing a flower in the middle of the art board with a Sakura Pigma Micron Pen.  Her favorite color is pink and so that is the color scheme used for coloring the image.

 

I decided use a My Favorite Things Pierced Rectangle Frame.  I thought it would be in keeping with how we frame our art pieces.  It was die cut from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  To add dimension 3M ½” Foam Tape was cut in half and adhered to the back of the frame.  I found some pink patterned paper in the Doodlebug Sweet Things 6 x 6 Paper Pack and cut it just smaller than the frame and removing the backing from the foam tape it was adhered to the back of the frame.

The focal image was placed in the frame to determine where to stamp the sentiment, which is from Penny Black Sprinkles & Smiles.  It was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.

An A2 Top Folding Cardbase was made from Gina K. Desgins 120# White Cardstock and the frame was adhered to the front using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and then adhered above the sentiment and the card was done.

Celebrate You Avalynn

Avalynn will join the young women organization in December and we are looking forward to her arriving.  Her favorite color is purple, with blue as a secondary color.  I recently purchased the digital stamp from La-La Land Crafts entitled Celebrate You Marci.  I printed it with a laser printer on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then die cut it with the Silhouette Cameo using the PIXScan mat.

It was colored with Copic Markers (E11, E00, E000, R20, R21, R22; E35, E53, E51; C1, C3; B91, B93; B34, B37; V09, V06, V04, V01).  I found some coordinating paper in the Doodlebug Polar Pas 6 x 6 Paper Pack.  I love this paper and think it really enhances the overall design.  I die cut a rectangle using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Rectangle and adhered it to the front of an A2 top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

To give the focal image a neutral background a scrap of white cardstock was cut with Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle.  This die cuts a scalloped center from a stitched rectangle and I decided to use both for this card design.  I adhered the stitched outer rectangle with Kukuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  I then cut a rectangle slightly smaller than the scalloped rectangle from Darice Sticky Back Foam Sheet and adhered it to the center of outside rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

The sentiment is from Art Impressions Chocolate Therapy and was stamped under the white rectangle with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  The focal image was adhered to the scalloped rectangle using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Happy Birthday Bayley

This is another digital image from La-La Land Crafts entitled Darling Marci.  This is also a sitting image and so I searched for a digital chair stamp and finally found one I liked from WinkWinkInk entitled Comfy Chair.

Both images were imported into my Silhouette Cameo Software and then print and cut on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with my laser printer.  (It is important to use a laser printer when you want to Copic color an image.  If it were printed with a LaserJet the image would smear when coloring.)

Copic Markers used are:   RV29, RV14, RV13 (Chair); RV13, RV11, RV10 (Dress); E49, E59, E35 (Hair); R20, R21 (Lips and Cheeks); E13, E21, E00 (Skin); C8, C6 (Polka Dots on Chair); C9, C8, C7 (Chair Feet); C5, C4, C3 (Ribbon, Ruffle, and Shoes).  I added polka dots to the chair for added interest.

The girl image was adhered to the chair using Ranger Multi Medium Matte glue and then 3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back.  They were then placed on a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Hero Arts Yummy Treats, stamped with Hero Arts Soft Granite Ink.

The card front was run through the Big Shot with WeR Memory Keepers Dotted Embossing Folder to add interest and dimension to the front of the card.  The backing was removed from the foam tape and the focal image was adhered to the card front.  As a final detail a Sakura GellyRoll Metallic Silver pen was used to trace the sentiment and the card was done.

The girl image is another digital stamp from La-La Land Crafts entitled Birthday Gift Molli.  I imported both Molli and the garden bench into my Silhouette Cameo Software and then performed a print and cut on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with my laser printer.  It is important to use a laser printer when you want to Copic color an image.  If it were printed with a LaserJet the image would smear when coloring.

I found some blue patterned paper in the Doodlebug Designs Patriotic Picnic 6 x 6 Paper Pad and die cut it using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle. It was adhered to a side folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with a Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive Runner.

The Silhouette cut images were adhered together using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then 3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back to add dimension.  They were placed on the card front to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Hero Arts Make a Wish Birthday, which was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K.
