Rose and Chamomile Hello Card I and II

I like using the Silhouette PIXScan Mat for cutting around images that I do not have a matching die for.  These cards are made by printing the Power Poppy Rose and Chamomile digital stamp with a laser printer onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock, which ensure the lines won’t bleed when colored with Copic Markers (listed below).

To add visual interest a rectangles of the same cardstock were cut using a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX and then dry embossed with the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder (red) or the Cricut Ben Day Dots Embossing Folder (orange).

A2 top folding cardbases were made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the rectangles were adhered using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  The flowers were adhered to the card front using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to add dimension.  The sentiment is Mama Elephant’s Hello Script Die, which was cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock and adhered to the card front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Luminous Bouquet Hello Card I and II

Power Poppy’s Luminous Bouquet is a very detailed image and takes a while to color, but it make a beautiful card.  It can look very different depending on the color palette you choose to use.

This is a digital image and was printed with a laser printer on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock, which ensures that it will not bleed when colored with Copic Markers (listed below).  After printing it was traced and cut using the Silhouette Cameo.  Takes a little more time than using a matching die, but does and excellent job.

For added dimension and to draw your eye to the focal image, a rectangle was cut from the same white cardstock using a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX and then dry embossing with an embossing folder (see below).  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the bouquet, which was then adhered to the embossed rectangle.

The sentiment is the Mama Elephant Hello Script die cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock.  It was adhered to the bottom of the rectangle with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Camellias Hello Card

This card was made from a Power Poppy Camellias digital stamp.  I like digital stamps because you can size them to whatever you want.  I printed the image with a laser printer on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then die cut using the Silhouette Cameo.  It was then colored using Copic Markers (listed below).

A rectangle of the same white cardstock was die cut using a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX and then run through the Big Shot with the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back and then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K.

Red Camillias Birthday Card

The Power Poppy digital stamp always makes a great card.  Red is my favorite color and so the stamp was printed with a laser printer to ensure that it wouldn’t bleed when colored with Copic Markers.

For this card the focal image was die cut with an Avery Elle Double Pierced Square and Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back.  To add interest for the sentiment a double square line was created with a score board below the focal image.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Handwritten Happiness was stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black.

Flower Bomb Birthday Bouquet

Pinks and purples, with a touch of yellow, make a pretty flower arrangement.  For this card I used the Power Poppy Flower Bomb Digital Stamp, printing it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then cutting it out using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  The thing I really like about digital stamps is you can make them any size you want.

I took some pink cardstock from the Recollections Essential Paper Pack and die cut it with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle.  I then used the positive oval shape left over from a previous card I made using the My Favorite Things Oval Frames.  The oval was adhered directly to the pink cardstock and Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the rectangle and adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted’s Fancy Sayings and was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.

The focal image was colored with Copic Markers: V17, V25, V22; YG67, YG23, YG01; YG17, YG23, YG03; Y08; R85, R83, R81; BG000, and then placed on a rectangle of Darice Sticky Back Foam, traced, and fussy cut and adhered to the back of the image.  I think this is becoming my favorite way of adding dimension to an image.  It doesn’t really take any longer than cutting strips of 3M ½” Foam Tape, but it gives a solid dimension behind an image and goes through the mail excellently.  It was then adhered to the middle of the oval with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Fall Luminous Bouquet Birthday

Power Poppy’s Luminous Bouquet Digital Stamp has a very detailed center to the largest flower.  I printed it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with an HP Printer and then cut an outline around the image with the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.

You have to color very carefully if when coloring a flower red with a yellow center if you don’t want the red to bleed into the yellow, but I like the combination.  Copic Markers R20, 422, 424, 427, 429; YR20, YR21, YR23; Y02, Y08, Y1Y; G00, G1, G19, YG04; BG000 were used to color the image.

I like when a smaller rectangle is used to set off a focal image, with a little bit of the focal image spreading over the edges.  Winnie & Walter’s Audrey Essential Die was used to create a scalloped rectangle to adhere the focal image to with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was used to trace the focal image and then adhered to the back.  The focal image was then adhered to the scalloped rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

The focal image rectangle was placed on a side folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Gina K. Designs Peony Wishes with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and the card was done.

Pretty Pansies Birthday Wishes

Power Poppy’s Pansies Digital Stamp was printed it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with an HP Printer and then cut an outline around the image with the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  I like to look at flower images on Google to get ideas on how to color flower images.  Copic Markers V09, V06, V04, V22; Y17, Y08, Y02; C3, C1, C0; YG67, YG17, YG23 were used for the purple, white, and yellow palette.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted’s Fancy Sayings and was stamped with Gina K. Designs Wild Lilac Ink.  When I went to adhere the focal image it just needed something to make it pop on the page.  So, I cut a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the rectangle for added dimension.  I like this better, but it still needed a little something, so I tool a scrap of white cardstock and colored it with the darkest purple Copic Marker and adhered it underneath the dry embossed rectangle with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  This was just what was needed to draw the eye to the flower arrangement.  Darice Fun Foam was traced in the flower shape and adhered to the back and then glued to the front of the card using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Layer Cake Birthday Celebration

I wanted to create all the birthday cards I would need until the end of the year since I was having surgery and didn’t know how I would be feeling.  I ran across this Power Poppy Layer Cake Digital Stamp and printed it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with an HP Laser Printer and cut around the image with the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.

The inspiration for the color of the image was taken from piece of pink hexagon paper from Doodlebug Kraft in Color 6 x 6 Paper Pad, which was die cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle and adhered to the front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The cake image was colored with Copic Markers RV14, RV13, RV12, RV11; V09, V06, V06; E59, E57, E55, since purple is a good complimentary color for pink, and who doesn’t like chocolate cake.

When you have a bright background I like to use a neutral color to highlight the focal image.  A rectangle was die cut from Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle and then dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder, which I think complemented the polka dot icing on the cake.

The sentiment from Paper Smooches Scripty Sayings was stamped on the pink rectangle with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was traced, fussy cut, and adhered to the back of the focal image.  It was then adhered to the dry embossed rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

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.
