Power Poppy Leaping Trout Birthday Card

I recently purchased the Power Poppy Leaping Trout Digital Stamp.  I thought it would make great cards for the sports enthusiasts in my life.  I really like the way it turned out.

I printed the image with my HP laser printer on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock.  If I had printed it with an ink jet printer the lines would bleed when colored with Copic Markers.  I Googled images for Rainbow Trout and colored the fish and water with the following colors:  C2, C3, C4; V2, BG01, B32, YG03; B91, B95.  The image was outlined with B0000, B000.

The focal image panel was then die cut using the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles.  Another rectangle was cut 1/8” larger from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and the two were adhered together using Tombo Mono Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Stylish Sentiments: Birthday and was stamped using Hero Hues India Ink Black.

Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back of the focal image to add dimension.  An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The front of the cardbase was run through the Big Shot with the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder for added dimension to the card front and then the focal image panel was adhered to the card front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

Power Poppy Ranunculus Birthday Card

There are a lot of ranunculus flower images out there right now, but I liked this one from Power Poppy.  I purchased the digital image and printed it on 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock with a laser printer.  This allowed me to color the image with Copic Markers without causing the lines to bleed.  The colors used are listed below.

Once the coloring was completed the image was die cut using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles.  A rectangle 1/8” larger was cut with my paper trimmer from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock and the two were adhered together using Scor-Tape.  I have found this works best on the slick surface of mirror cardstock.  Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was adhered to the back of the focal image.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image was adhered to the front using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

The sentiment from Clearly Besotted Fancy Sayings was stamped on Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Rangers Fine Detailed Gold Embossing Powder.  A scrap of adhesive fun foam was added to the back of the sentiment and then adhered to the front of the card with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  A few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold were adhered to the card front with Ranger Multi Medium Matte and the card was done.

This is another beautiful digital stamp from Power Poppy entitled Magnolia.  I love the pretty bouquet image and it turned out to be a lovely card.

Power Poppy Joyful Lilies Easter Card

I wanted to create some Easter cards that I could send to the young women and men who are serving missions from our church and so I began searching for images of Easter Lilies and found this beautiful digital stamp from Power Power entitled Joyful Lilies.

I imported the digital image into Microsoft Word, changed the line color to a light gray, and printed it with my HP LaserJet Printer, since I would be coloring the image with Copic Markers and didn’t want the lines to bleed.

The Copic colors used were: C1, C2; V25, V09; G43; YR15, YR07; YG93, YG97, YG99

After the coloring was complete I placed the image on a Silhouette Cameo PixScan Mat and took a picture with my cell phone.  I then imported the picture into the Silhouette Software, created a trace of the image and then added a .04 outline and cut around the image with the Cameo.  Since I was creating multiples I could do four images at a time.

I didn’t have a stamp that would give me the sentiment I desired, so I created a banner using the Table function in Microsoft Word, adding a gray fill and the words “Because of Him” in white font and it was perfect.

I wanted to add a background to the image so that it would standout on the card front so I die cut a rectangle using the 2nd largest Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Stackable Rectangles and ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with the Sizzix Dotted Lattice Embossing Folder.  This rectangle was glued directly to a top folding A2 Cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and added to the dry embossed rectangle.  Foam tape was also added to the ends of the sentiment banner, which was placed towards the bottom of the focal image and the card was done.

Products Used:

  • Power Poppy Joyful Lilies Digital Stamp
  • Copic Markers: C1, C2; G20, G21, G24; V25, V09; G43; YR15, YR07; (YG93, YG97, YG99)

  • Sizzix Dotted Lattice Embossing Folder

Power Poppy Peonies Welcome

For this stamp I searched Google for images of Peonies and found some that were pink with a tinge of yellow at the ends.  It was a pretty combination and used that inspiration to create this welcome card.

I printed and cut the Power Poppy Ponies Digital Stamp on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and then colored it with the Copic Markers listed below.

A panel of 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock was cut using the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and run through the Big Shot with the Cricut Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  The panel was glued to the front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from 120# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Next th he focal image was applied to the front of the card with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to add dimension.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Beautiful Baby, stamped with VersaMark Ink onto some 120# Gina K. Designs Black Cardstock and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail White Embossing Powder, then adhered to the front of the card with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.

Power Poppy French Lilac Hello

Some of the sweetest smelling flowers of spring are lilacs.  I really love this image from Power Poppy called French Lilacs.  It was printed and cut using the Silhouette Cameo and then colored with Copic Markers (colors listed below).

When creating a clean and simple white card I like to add dimension by adding a panel that has been dry embossed.  This card uses the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder.  First the panel was cut using the largest rectangle from Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles and embossing it with the folder.

A panel of mirror gold cardstock was cut 1/8″ larger than the panel and both were adhered together using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then adhered directly to a top folding A2 Card made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The focal image was adhered to the front of the panel using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.

The sentiment was cut from mirror gold cardstock using Hero Arts Hello Stamp and Cut.  When adding dimension to a die cut sentiment you can either cut several words and glue them together, or in this case I die cut Darice Adhesive Fun Foam and then glued to the panel using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

Power Poppy Camellias Congrats

I really like a clean and simple card that lets the focal image shine on the page.  This card was made using Power Poppy Camellias Digital Stamp.

The Power Poppy Camellias Digital Stamp was printed and cut using the Silhouette Cameo and then colored with Copic Markers (colors listed below).

A panel of Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock was die cut using the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables and then run through the Big Shot again with the Cricut Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. The gold mirror cardstock adds an elegant feel to the card and was cut 1/8″ larger than the embossed panel.  The focal image was adhered to the panel using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape and the entire panel was adhered to a top folding A2 Cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Darice Adhesive Fun Foam.

The sentiment was cut from gold mirror cardstock using Winnie & Walter The Big, The Bold, and You die.  It was cut again three times with scrap white card stock and adhered together with Elmer’s Adhesive Spray.  Tombo Mono Multi Glue was used to adhere it to the front of the card panel.  This beautiful sentiment can be used for birthdays, weddings, graduations, or any other occasion where you want to express your congratulations.
