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.

Countryside Bouquet Happy Birthday

This is another Power Poppy Digital Stamp called Countryside Bouquet that I recently purchased.  It was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using an HP Laser Printer and then the outline cut using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.

In the Doodlebug Kraft in Color 6 x 6 Paper Pad I found this yellow paper with little white flower on it and decided to use it as a background for this image.  It was die cut using the WPlus9 Gift Card Layers Rectangle, which cut a rectangle exactly the size of an A2 top folding cardbase.  It was adhered to the cardbase using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The Copic Markers used pulled the pretty spring lemon yellow into the flower arrangement.  Copic Markers used were: YG95, YG91, G94, G21, G46, G17; YG01, YG03, YG17, YG67; B24, B23; Y08, Y02; R85, R83, R81; V15, V12; BG0000.  The flower arrangement was scanned and cutout using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  It was placed on some Darice Fun Foam, traced with a pencil, fussy cut, and the foam adhered to the back of the image.

A rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock was cut using the Winnie & Walter Audrey Essentials Scalloped Rectangle Die and adhered to the yellow card front with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The flower arrangement was placed on the card front to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Hero Arts Messages with a Flourish in Hero Hues India Ink Black.  The focal image was adhered above the sentiment with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Rose & Chamomile Birthday Card

Frame dies are a beautiful way to set off a focal image on a card and make it pop from the page.

I began by printing the Power Poppy Rose & Chamomile Digital Stamp on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then using the PIXScan mat ran it through the Silhouette Cameo to die cut around the image.

I knew that I wanted the flower arrangement to have pink and purple, with hints of yellow and so I when through my stash of patterned paper and found this pretty pink cardstock from Doodlebug Kraft in Color 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  It was die cut using the WPlus9 Gift Card Layers Rectangle, which cut a rectangle exactly the size of an A2 top folding cardbase.  It was adhered to the cardbase using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

My Favorite Things Stitched Oval Frame was used to create a frame for the focal image.  3M ½” Foam Tape was cut in half so that it would be a narrow strip and adhered to the back of the frame.  It was placed on an A2 top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday with Hero Hues Onyx Black Ink.  In looking back on the card, I think it would have looked better to heat emboss it with white embossing powder, but I still like the look of the card.

The backer paper was removed from the foam tape and the oval frame was adhered to the card front.  3M ½” foam tape was placed strategically on the back of the flower arrangement so that it would rest upon the frame, but still be supported underneath in the open areas.  It turned out to be a pretty card.

Hobnail Pitcher Birthday Tulip Card

I like the image from Power Poppy Tulips in a Hobnail Pitcher.  Although we are far  beyond tulip season it still make a love card.  I printed the image using my HP Laser Jet Printer onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then die cut around the image using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  The image was colored with the following Copic Markers: R85, R83, R81; R22, R21, R20; Y08, Y02; YG67, YG17, YG03, YG01; C7, C5, C3, C2, C1.

I decided to die cut a rectangle from the same cardstock using a My Favorite Things Stitched Shapes Rectangle and then dry embossed it using the Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  I thought it complemented the hobnails in the pitcher beautifully.  A scrap of white cardstock was colored with the darkest cool gray makers and dried with the Marvy Embossing Heat Tool.  The sentiment from My Favorite Things Celebrate You was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed using Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back to add dimension.

To assemble the card Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the polka dot rectangle.  The focal image was traced on some leftover Sticky Back Foam and the two were adhered together.  The sentiment was added to the lower third of the cardbase with 3M ½” Foam Tape and the focal image was adhered above it using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and the card was done.

Tree Peony Birthday Card

The Power Poppy Tree Peony is a new digital stamp that I recently purchased.  I found some pretty lilac and gold mirror paper in the Moment Cardstock Carton 12 x 12 Paper Pad and decided to use it for inspiration for coloring this image.   It was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and die cut using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image.

A rectangle from the polka dot paper was created using the Rectangle from the Simon Says Stamp Bundles of Stitched Shapes and die cut circle was added to the upper center of the card with the My Favorite Thing Pierced Circle STAX.  A scrap of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock was cut, dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added around the circle opening and the rest of the card back and then the two were adhered together using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The sentiment was cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock using Mama Elephant’s Happy Script Die.  All the elements of the card were added to the front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, which was dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder.  The secondary sentiment was stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black and the primary sentiment was adhered above it using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. To help it stand out from the purple background the lightest shade of lilac Copic Marker (RV91) was used to add a drop shadow to the word.

The focal image was adhered to the front of the cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Magnolia Sunshine Sympathy Card

When I am creating a sympathy card I try to keep to a light color pallet.  I printed the Power Poppy Magnolia Sunshine Digital Stamp on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and cut the image using the PIXScan Matt and the Silhouette Cameo.  The image was colored with Copic Markers: RV06, RV04, RV02; R85, R83, R81, R89, R39; RV14, RV13, RV11; YG67, YG03; C3, C1; Y08; BG0000.

The focal image was traced on Darice Sticky Back Foam and then cut out and adhered to the back of the image.  A rectangle frame was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock using My Favorite Things Pierced Rectangle Frame.  A rectangle was cut from Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and dry embossed using the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the frame and then dry embossed rectangle was adhered to the back.  The backing paper was removed from the 3M ½” Foam Tape and adhered to the center of the frame

The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink on a thin strip of vellum paper with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and wrapped around the frame and adhered to the back with Scotch Tape.  The focal image rectangle was then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from 120# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock and the card was done.
