Full of Glee Hello

I think Penny Black has some of the prettiest flower image stamps for cardmaking.  For this hello card I decided to color it with red and purple Copic Markers and love the combination.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using the MISTI.  This allowed me to stamp several time for a dark, crisp image.  The Copic Markers used to color the image are listed below.  Once the coloring was complete the image was die cut with a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX die.  To add visual interest to the card a rectangle of Gina K. Designs 120# Black cardstock was cut 1/8″ larger and adhered to the back with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The sentiment is the Mama Elephant Hello Script Die and was cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock and again from the black cardstock.  The layers were adhered together with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and then adhered to the card front.

An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120#White Cardstock.  To add visual interest the front of the base was run through the Big Shot with the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder.  The focal image rectangle was then adhered to the front with the same adhesive.  Wink of Stella was added to the flowers and the card was done.

Cupcake Trio Birthday Card with Ganzai Pearl Colors

I really like the Whimsy Stamp Cupcake Trio, it makes a great masculine card.  I recently purchased the Ganzai Pearl Watercolors and wanted to try them out on this card.  I really like the bright and pretty colors they give to a card.  The frosting was painted with Finetec M600 gold watercolors.

I stamped the image with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The cupcakes were then colored with the blue, green, and yellow colors for the Gansai set.  After the image was dry it was die cut with a My Favorite Things Wonky Rectangle.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back.  To add visual interest another rectangle was cut from blue cardstock with a larger wonky rectangle and the focal image panel was adhered to the front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

The sentiment is from Penny Black Doodles Thin Die and was cut from Paper Accents Gold Metallic Cardstock and adhered to the card front with the same glue.

Pop Pop Poppy Birthday Card

I love Penny Black’s watercolor look flower stamps.  They make lovely cards when you use Tombo Markers and Water.  It works best with a MISTI so that you can stamp the image multiple times.  The markers were used directly to the darker areas of of the image.

Once the image was stamped it was die cut using a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX.  Dark teal cardstock was pulled from my stash and cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″.  The watercolor panel was adhered using Sookwang Be Creative Tape.

The sentiment from My Favorite Things Celebrate You was stamped on vellum and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Silver Embossing Powder and was wrapped around the focal image and then adhered to the front of an A2 top folding cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

Festive Frames Christmas Card

The frame from the Gina K. Designs Festive Frames make a lovely Christmas Card.  I love the sentiment from Penny Black Yuletide Wishes.  For this card the frame was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers.  The sentiment was stamped with Distress Oxide Candied Apple and heat embossed with Hero Arts Fine Detail Clear Embossing Powder.  This is the card that we sent out for our 2017 Christmas Card.

This card takes a little over an hour to create, so it isn’t a quick card, but it turns out to be a pretty card.  Wink of Stella was used on the petals and Stickles Gold was used to the center of the flower to add visual interest to the flowers.

Power Poppy Pink Ranunculus Birthday

There are a lot of ranunculus flower stamps out there right now.  I like them all.  This stamp is a digital image from Power Poppy, which was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using a Laser Printer.  The dry ink in a laser printer ensures that the image does not bleed when coloring with Copic Markers.

The markers used for this flower arrangement were: RV09, RV06, RV04; YG65, YG93, YG91; BG0000.  Once it was printed and colored it was die cut using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  The image was traced onto Darice Sticky Back Foam, fussy cut with scissors and adhered to the back of the arrangement.

The sentiment is from Penny Black Sprinkles & Smiles and was stamped using VersaMark Ink on vellum cardstock and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.

A scalloped rectangle was die cut using a Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die.  The focal image was adhered to the front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the sentiment was wrapped around the rectangle and adhered to the back with Scotch Tape.

Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8” smaller than the scalloped rectangle and adhered to the back.  A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the front was run through the Big Shot with the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder to add visual interest.  The Focal image panel was then adhered to the front using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Blooming Bouquet Birthday

I like the drapping leaves that are part of this bouquet.  They are a delicate addition to the design.  This image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a HP Laser Printer and then outline die cut using the Silhouette PIXScan Mat and Cameo Machine.

I like the way dimension can be added to an outline image and brings visual interest to a card.

The card was colored using Copic Markers: G46, G82; YG99; YG57, YG17, YG03; BG13, BG34, BG32; B25, B24, B23; V25; RV06, RV04, RV02; RV14, RV13, RV11; Y17, Y08, Y02; YR24.  Once the color was complete the focal image was placed on a sheet of Darice Sticky Back Foam and traced with a pencil, fussy cut with scissors, and adhered to the back of the image.  I have begun adding foam dimension in this manner and like the solid surface that it gives.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  A quarter sheet of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock was run through the Big Shot with the Winnie & Walter Audrey Essentials Scalloped Rectangle.  Darice Sticky Fun Foam was added to the back for dimension.

The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink on the Paper Company Fellum and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The focal image was adhered to the scalloped rectangle using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the sentiment was wrapped around the rectangle and adhered to the back using Scotch Tape.  The focal image scalloped rectangle was then adhered to the top of the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Heart Balloon Bouquet I and II

I printed two heart balloon bouquet images on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock on my HP Laser Printer and cut around them using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.

For the first card I colored them using rainbow Copic Markers: R29, R27, R24, R22; V17, V15, V12; G07, G05, G00; Y23, Y21, Y08; B28, B26, B24, B23; BG000.

Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was added behind the balloons to add dimension when adhering them to the cardbase.

A rectangle of Classic Crest Cardstock was die cut using a My Favorite Things Wonky Rectangle.  A scrap of red cardstock from the Recollections Essential 6 x 6 Paper Pad was used to mat the rectangle, gluing the two together with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The sentiment from Penny Black’s Sprinkles and Smiles was stamped in the lower right of the rectangle with Hero Hues India Ink Black.  The front of the card panel was dry embossed using the Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder and the balloon bouquet was adhered in place using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

A clean and simple card was done.

Becca Selfie Birthday

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. Designs Blue Lagoon Ink was used to stamp the sentiment.   To finish the card the focal image was placed in the center of the card front.

Bring on the Happy Ashley

Ashley is a lovely young lady with the lovely voice whose favorite colors are coral and turquoise.  I printed the digital image Ruffles Marci from La-La Land Crafts on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using an HP Laser Printer.  It was then die cut using the Silhouette Cameo and the PIXScan Mat.

It was colored using Copic Markers E49, E29, E37, E35, E33; R21, R22, R20; C1, C3; BG15, BG13, BG11; E11, E00, E000, R20.

An oval was cut from a scrap of white cardstock using a My Favorite Things Pierced Oval Die.  For added interest and dimension it was dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder and placed on the patterned paper to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Penny Black Sparkles and Shine with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.
