Treat Yourself Jenna

I colored this image to be like a young woman at church by the name of Jenna. It was printed with a laser printer and then Copic Colored with her favorite colors. Once the coloring was complete it was cut using the Silhouette PIXScan Mat.

Since the image has her hand down I decided to pair it with a park bench I had in my drawer that I added shadows to with Copic Markers. However, I needed to leave enough room for the sentiment, so I cut the center of the park bench out and piece it together. The seam would be covered by the focal image.

Grass and sky were ink blended, using some Post-it Tape to section off each area while blending. The park bench was adhered using liquid glue and the focal image was adhered with foam tape.

It felt pretty plain and so I pulled out some blue and green sequins to add a little something to the cardfront.

Happy Birthday Ariana

The digital images from Make It Crafty make perfect cards for the young women in our church.  This card is for Ariana, whose favorite color is Forest Green.  She has beautiful, long dark hair and brilliant blue eyes.   This image is called Tress Joyful.

The image was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer, which ensures that the lines will not bleed when coloring with Copic Markers.  Colors used were: B37, B45, B34, B41; G29, G28, G09, G24; E49, E57, E55; E11, C01, E000, R20; B0000.

When coloring was complete it was cut using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  The image was placed on Darice Sticky Back Foam and traced with a pencil, fussy cut with scissors, and adhered to the back of the focal image.

A rectangle of the same white cardstock was cut using a Gina Marie Designs Loopy Rectangle Die.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back for additional dimension.  The sentiment from Penny Black Sprinkles & Smiles was stamped on this decorative rectangle with Gina K. Designs Christmas Pine Ink.

Happy Birthday KaraLee

KaraLee is a delightful young woman at church who recently turned 16, which is such an exciting age.  Her favorite color is turquoise.  She has beautiful long, blond hair and big blue eyes.  I used the Make It Crafty Jacinta Sitting and Thinking Digi Stamp for her birthday card this year.

I printed the image with my laser jet printer onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock.  This allows for coloring with Copic Markers without the lines bleeding.  Markers used were: BG18, BG16, BG13, BG11; G24, G94; E35, E53, E50; E11, E01, E000, R20, R21; C0, C1, C2, C4, C6; B12, B000.

Once the coloring was complete I used the PIXScan Mat to cut around the image with the Silhouette Cameo.  I traced around the cutout image on some Darice Sticky Foam, cut it with scissors and adhered it to the back of the focal image.  A rectangle of the same white cardstock was die cut using a Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Rectangle Die.  The focal image was then adhered to the front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

A rectangle of green patterned paper was die cut using an A2 My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Die and the Scalloped Rectangle was adhered to the center using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Birthday Greetings and was stamped on a strip of vellum with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers Ink and then heat embossed with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder.  The vellum sentiment was then wrapped around the green rectangle and adhered to the back with plain old scotch tape.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image panel was adhered to the front with the same dotliner adhesive and the card was done.
