PENNY BLACK BOUQUET SYMPATHY CARD

Recently the mother of a friend of ours passed away.  In her obituary it specifically noted that her favorite color was purple, so I wanted to create a sympathy card with purple flowers.  I pulled out the Penny Black Centerpiece stamp set, it’s one of my favorites, and stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on an outline I had cut previously with my Silhouette Cameo from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock.  I used Copic Markers to color the image, listed below are the colors used.

00271

From purple cardstock I had in my stash I cut a rectangle using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts Prayers and was cut from the same purple cardstock three times and adhered together using Elmer’s Glue Adhesive Spray.  I then die cut a smaller rectangle from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles.  The focal image and prayers cutout were placed on the white rectangle to determine where to stamp the secondary greetings, also from Hero Arts Prayers.  They were stamped with Altenew Deep Iris Ink.

The two rectangles were adhered together using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then adhered to the front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The focal image was adhered with 3M ½” Foam Tape and the sentiment cutout was adhered using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  To add a little more interest the to the front of the card purple sequins were used from Pretty Pink Posh Enchanted Garden Mix and the card was done

HAPPY-HAPPY-HAPPY BIRTHDAY

This card was made with several outline images from my Silhouette Cameo using Penny Black Big Wish Stamp set.  The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the Copic Markers listed below.

00256A rectangle was cut with Memory Box Stitched Rectangles from some blue cardstock I had in my stash.  I then cut a second rectangle from Gina K. Designs 80# white cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot twice to make it slightly smaller, then I used the Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  The two rectangles were adhered together using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then adhered to a top folding cardbase from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut to 4 ¼” x 11”  and scored 5 ½” with 3M ½” and Foam Tape.

The focal images were adhered to the front of the white rectangle with 3M ½” Foam Tape.  I didn’t like were the cat was placed and so I stamped a present box from Clearly Besotted It’s Your Birthday Stamp with Memento Danube Blue and filled in the polka dots with Copic Y08.  This was a cute perch for the cat to sit on and I like that much better.

SUPPLIES USED:

  • Penny Black Big Wish Stamp (Cut with Silhouette)
  • MFT Celebrate You Sentiment Stamp (top line only)
  • Clearly Besotted It’s Your Birthday Stamp (present for cat to sit on)
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; Danube Blue for Present; Altenew Sapphire for Sentiment
  • Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder
  • Memory Box Stitched Rectangles (largest run through twice to make smaller)
  • Copic Markers: B32, B34, B37 (Hat, Dress, Butterfly); Y02, Y06, Y08 (Balloon, Butterfly, Dots on Flowers, Present, Hat); RV 14, RV11 (Flower, Butterfly Antennae); E000, E00, E01, R20 (Skin); E50, E31, E25 (Hair); Y23, YR23, YR24, E49 (Cat); G24, G28 (Cat’s Hat)

HAVE A LOVELY BIRTHDAY

This is another image that I stamped on an outline cutout from my Silhouette Cameo software using my MISTI, with a little repositionable tape on the back of the outline to hold it in place.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black for ink, since it is Copic friendly and then I colored the image using the Copic Marker colors listed below.

00255I die cut a circle using My Favorite Things Pierced Circle STAX dies and then run it through my Sizzix Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I found some matching peach cardstock in my stash and cut it using the Avery Elle Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles.  I prepared the bottom of the rectangle with my Embossing Buddy to ensure the embossing powder would only stick where I wanted it to and stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things Birthday Greetings Sentiment stamp with VersaMark Ink and then sprinkles some Recollections Snow Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Marvy Embossing Tool.

I created a card base from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cutting it to 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”.  I adhered the peach rectangle using Tombo Mono Multi Glue, which gives you a little time to position it perfectly on the cardbase.  The focal image was adhered to the circle die cut with 3M ½” Foam Tape, and then the circle was adhered to the peach rectangle with some more 3M ½” Foam Tape and the card was done.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRINCESS WITH SILHOUETTE CAMEO CUTOUTS

I really like the look of an image cut out with matching dies, but I have a lot of stamps that don’t have any dies available, so I decided to use my Silhouette Cameo to create cut files for these stamp sets.  The method for creating these files is as follows:

  1. I Stamped the image on white cardstock using a dark black ink, I used Hero Hues Black
  2. I scanned the image with my multi use scanner and saved it as a .jpg image
  3. I started my Silhouette Studio software and opened the .jpg image
  4. I used the Trace Window to trace around the image – be sure to turn off High Pass Filter – I used a Threshold between 80-90% and selected trace outer edge
  5. The image will now have a red cut line around it – You can now delete the .jpg image leaving only the cut lines, or you can leave it, whichever you prefer, but be sure that you have selected the cut image and open the Offset Window. Once you select offset the default is .125, but that is too large, I change the offset to be .035.  Sometimes I may have a slightly larger offset (.045) to capture other embellishments that are part of the image, such as the stars and confetti that were part of the image above.
  6. Delete the inside smaller cut image, leaving behind only the offset cut image and send it to your cameo for cutting – Be sure and use Copic Friendly paper, I used Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and to conserve paper I filled the page with multiple images.

00257w

If the image has embellishments some of them may not join together when you offset.  Sometimes, if necessary you can double click on the cut image and the Point Editing Window will open.  You can zoom into the image to see individual points that are created for cut the image.  You can use this tool to delete some of the points to ensure that small items like a star or confetti are joined to the cut image, or to eliminate little areas that have been selected to cut that would just tear your paper they are so small.  You can also use the erase tool to get rid of these extra embellishments to the image.  You could leave them, but I don’t think you want to try and line up small cutouts of extra confetti when it is part of one stamp.  When working with these cut files keep in mind that once you erase something from the cut image the Point Editing Tool will no longer work.   I have found that, while a little time consuming, deleting the points works best.  There are good instruction videos on YouTube that can help if you have questions, or send me an email and I’ll try and walk you through it.

For this card I cut the outline for Penny Black Big Wish Stamp set from Gina K. Designs 80# Cardstock.  This is a clear photopolymer stamp and so I used a little removable adhesive to the back of the cut file and placed it in my MISTI, aligned the matching stamp, and used Copic Friendly Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  If I am working with a rubber stamp I use a stamp positioner (I have the stamp-a-ma-jig) to ensure proper alignment.

Once the image was stamped I used Copic Markers to color the image, colors are listed below.  I die cut a Sizzix Rounded Tag from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and adhered the focal image in the center with 3M ½” Foam Tape.  I then cut a larger Sizzix Rounded Tag from matching pink cardstock I had in my stash and stamped the top line only from MFT Celebrate You Sentiment Stamp set with VersaMark Ink and embossed it with Recollections Snow Detailed White Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Marvy Embossing Heat Tool.

I wanted the cardbase to match the arch of the Sizzix Tag, but I didn’t have a die in the size that was needed.  I took some Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and cut it to 4 ¼” x 11” and scored it at 5 ½” to create a top folding A2 size cardbase.  I used the Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder on the front of the cardbase and then fussy cut a matching arch.  The focal image was adhered to the front of the cardbase with 3M ½” Foam Tape and the card was complete.

SUPPLIES USED:

  • Penny Black Big Wish Stamp (Cut with Silhouette)

CELEBRATE YOU BIRTHDAY CARD

Penny Black’s Make a Wish Stamp has so many cute little girls for birthday cards.  I really enjoy make cards with them.  I stamped on of the images on Canson 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper with VersaMark Ink and then heat embossing the image with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder, preparing the paper with an embossing buddy to remove any oils from the cardstock, which ensures the embossing powder only sticks to where the image has been stamped.  The image was then colored with Winsor & Newton Lightweight Sketchers’ Box Half Pan Set of 24.

00245
Once the image was dry I die cut it with Spellbinders Square die.  A piece of Gina K. Designs Red Cardstock was cut to be 1/8” larger and then the focal image was adhered using 3M ½” Foam Tape.  The focal image was adhered to a card base is 120# Gina K. Design White Cardstock, cut to 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½” with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The celebrate word die is from Penny Black Doodles die set.  It was cut from the same red cardstock and adhered using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The word you is from the Winnie and Walter The Big, the Bold, and You stamp set, stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.

SUPPLIES USED:

  • Penny Black Make a Wish Stamp

HAPPY BIRTHDAY – PENNY BLACK MAKE A WISH

I began this card by stamping one of the images from Penny Black Make a Wish on Canson 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper with VersaMark Ink and then heat embossing the image with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  Remember, when working with embossing powder be sure and prepare your paper prior to stamping with an embossing buddy to remove any oils from the cardstock.  This will ensure the embossing powder only sticks to where the image has been stamped.

I colored the image using Winsor & Newton Lightweight Sketchers’ Box Half Pan Set of 24.  When I am watercoloring I mix my paints so that I have unique colors and get just the look I desire.  Once the watercolored image was dry I cut it into a circle using Spellbinders Circle Die.  To accent the color of the dress and frosting I die cut Spellbinders Small Scallop Circle Die and adhered it to the back of the focal image watercolored piece.

My card base is 120# Gina K. Design White Cardstock, cut to 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”.  I die cut some orange and white chevron paper from Recollections Bright & Basic 6 x 6 Paper Pack with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Stitched Basic Shapes and adhered it with Tombo Mono Multi Glue to the cardbase.  The focal image was adhered to the top of the card front with 3M ½” Foam Tape to add dimension.  The sentiment is from the Penny Black Celebrations Die, cut in both Gold Glitter Cardstock and Green Cardstock.  They were adhered together a little offset so you could see both colors.

SUPPLIES USED:

  • Recollections Bright & Basic 6 x 6 Paper
  • Spellbinders Small Circle Die

Watercolor Make a Wish

I wanted to create some birthday cards that could be used for the young women in my church.  I color the hair so it matches theirs, and the clothes are colored in their favorite color.  It gives a personal touch and lets them know they are special.

00243w

I began this card by stamping Penny Black Make a Wish on Canson 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper with VersaMark Ink and then heat embossing the image with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  Whenever you are working with embossing powder be sure and prepare your paper prior to stamping with an embossing anti-static tool to remove any oils from the cardstock.  This will ensure the embossing powder only sticks to where the image has been stamped.

I colored the image using Winsor & Newton Watercolor Lightweight Sketchers’ Box Half Pan Set of 24.  Sometimes when I am watercoloring I mix my paints so that I have unique colors and get just the look I desire.  I encourage you to give this a try, it’s a fun creative process.  The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn Party Animals stamp set.

Once the image was dry I used the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles to cut down the watercolor cardstock.  I then cut a 1/8” larger rectangle from Gold Glitter Cardstock and adhered the watercolor panel using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Because glitter cardstock has a rough texture using good liquid glue ensures that it will stay together.  I die cut a piece of Darice Adhesive Foam and applied it to the back of the glitter cardstock.  The background paper is from DCWV Glitter Basics 6 x 6 Stack of paper, which was adhered with Tombo Mono Multi Glue to a 120# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock cardbase cut to 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”.

Garden Blooms

I originally made this card for a color challenge, but didn’t get it completed in time.  I like the bright and colorful flowers.

For this card I decided to do some no line watercoloring.  I stamped the image on Strathmore 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper with Distress Ink Antique Linen.  I watercolored the flowers with Winsor & Newton Watercolors: Permanent Rose, Olive Green / Permanent Sap Green, Winsor Violet, Winsor Orange/Permanent Rose, wetting the area I wanted to color first with clear water before dropping in the color.

The cardbase is Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  I cut a panel of pink Bo Bunny Passion Fruit Stripe Cardstock with the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it to the card base with the Scotch Advanced Tape Glider.

Once the watercolor was dry I ran it through by Big Shot with the Winnie & Walter Audrey Essentials Die scalloped rectangle and applied some Michael Celebrate It pretty pink ribbon for a little added embellishment. For some added dimension I added 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to the back of the focal image and applied it to the card base and the card was done.

What a Wonderful Day

The third card I made with background stamps used Hero Arts Lotus stamp on Strathmore 140# Cold Press Watercolor paper, stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Stampin Stuff Clear Embossing Powder.  Distress inks used were Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, and Picked Raspberry and blended with Ranger’s round blending tool.  Using a spray bottle of water a fine mist of water was added to the watercolor paper to help the colors blend.

This card was for my nephew Devin’s wedding to his fiancee Mandy. It turned out beautiful and elegant. Once the background was complete I used the largest Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Stackable Rectangle to cut the watercolor background to a panel 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and adhered it with Be Creative 5/8″ tape to a 4 1/4″ x 11″ cardbase, scored at 5 1/2″.

I wanted the background to take center stage so I cut a label from a leftover piece of Strathmore Watercolor paper with My Favorite Things Well-Worn Greetings die and stamped the sentiment from Penny Black’s Special Wishes with Hero Hues Black ink using my MISTI. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the label for dimension.

For embellishment I cut My Favorite Things Fancy Flourish die from heavy weight white vellum and curved it along the left edge of the label. Flowers were cut using My Favorite Things Flower and Leaf Trio die from Doodlebug Sprinkles White Vellum. The flowers were layered on top of each other and adhered with Micro Glue Dots. A pearl from Michaels Rhinestone Stickers was added to the center of the flower with Micro Glue Dot. To add dimension to the flower it was adhered to the label with a 3/8″ Zots Medium Glue Dot.

For the inside of the card I printed a quote from Elizabeth Browning; “Love doesn’t make the word go round, Love is what makes the ride worthwhile” on Gina K. Design 80# White Cardstock and cut it with the same My Favorite Things Well-Worn Greetings die as was used on the front. Another flourish and flower were added as well. A strip of the background was added to the bottom of the inside card and to the bottom of the envelope and the card was done.

A Warm Welcome

A couple of weeks ago we had three families move into our congregation at church. Our congregations are organized into wards, which are a geographic area that determines who attends at what times.  This ensures that the congregations don’t get so big people won’t be able to know one another and get lost in the crowd. But even with smaller congregations it’s hard to move and not know anyone.  I decided that since I love making cards I would start making welcome cards for the new families. Here are the three cards that I made. I must have been in a pink mood, because all of them have pink flowers.

CARD #1 was made with Altenew’s Peony Bouquet and stamped with Altenew Ink.  This image has multiple layers. I tried stamping the outline area first, but after some trial and error I found I got a better image when I started with the solid base.  For the flowers, layer 1 was stamped with Blush, layer 2 with Rouge, layer 3 with Crimson, and the outline with Hero Hues Black. The leaves were stamped with Frayed Leaf for layer 1 and Forest Glades for layer 2.

I die cut a panel of Gina K. Design 120# white cardstock  using the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles and adhered one of the full blooms, the bud, and leaves with Elmer’s Dot Runner adhesive.  The final bloom was adhered with 3M 1/2″ foam tape to give added dimension.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Little One and was stamped with my MISTI in Hero Hues Black. This allowed me to stamp a few times to get a crisp black.  I adhered the panel to a 120# Gina K. Design white card base with 3M 1/2″ foam tape, scattered a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh Sweetheart collection, added a bloom to the inside left corner and the card was done.

CARD #2 was made with Penny Black’s Centerpiece and stamped in VersaMark ink on 140# Cold Press Strathmore Watercolor Paper.  Before stamping I prepped the area with my embossing buddy so the embossing powder would only cling to the stamped image.  I used Ranger’s Platinum Embossing Powder, which gives an elegant feel to the card.  I watercolored the image by wetting down individual flowers and dropping the color into the area, letting the color move on its own and concentrating the darker color where there would be shadows.  I used the following Distress Inks: Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Picked Raspberry, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Fossilized Amber, Antique Linen, and Tumbled Glass.

I die cut the watercolor image using the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Little One and was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Ranger Platinum embossing powder. I adhered the panel to a 120# Gina K. Design white card base with 3M 1/2″ foam tape.  You can see a hint of the inside of the card.  I always stamp the image in a light ink or add a small die cut image similar to what is on the front of the card.   Sometimes I add another sentiment, but not always.  I do something similar for the envelopes.  Once the inside was stamped the card was done.

CARD #3 was made with Penny Black’s Blooming Garden. I used the poppy flower image, stamped it with VersaMark ink on 140# Cold Press Strathmore Watercolor Paper, after I prepped the area with my embossing buddy so the embossing powder would only cling to the stamped image.  I used Ranger’s Platinum embossing powder and set it with my heat tool.

I watercolored the image by wetting down individual flower petals and dropping the color into the water, letting it move on its own.  I used Winsor and Newton Permanent Rose and Sap Green.  The background was a blend of Cerulean Blue and Turquoise Light, watered down so that it was a very light wash.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Beautiful Baby, stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger’s Platinum Embossing Powder.

I die cut the image using the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles and adhered the panel to a 120# Gina K. Design white card base with 3M 1/2″ foam tape, stamped the image on the inside of the card with Altenew Rouge ink and the card was done.
