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.

One in a Million Birthday Card

The Clearly Besotted One in a Million Stamp is made of two corner flower arrangements.  Clearly Besotted is no longer making dies for their stamps, but that isn’t an issue when you have the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  It is a lot less time consuming that fussy cutting the images out with scissors.

I Stamped both flower corners onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then cut out the images.  They were colored with Copic Markers: BG15, BG13; BG0000; YG17, YG03; G46, G82; B95, B93, B91; YR21, Y08; YR24, YR23; R85, R83, R81; V15, V12.

They were placed on some Darice Sticky Back Foam Sheet and traced with a pencil, fussy cut with scissors, and adhered to the back of the focal images.  I decided to arrange them on a landscape A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

A rectangle of Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock was due cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle  Gina K. Designs 120# Back Cardstock was cut 1/8” larger and adhered to the back using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  It was adhered to the cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then the sentiment was stamped in the middle of the cardbase using Hero Hues India Ink Black and a sentiment from My Favorite Things Handwritten Happiness.

The two floral focal images were adhered into two opposing corners, gluing them in place with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  For a final embellishment Queen & Co. Candy Shoppe Jellies in Yellow, Pink, and Blue were scatter on the card front and the card was done.

Flower Bouquet Make a Wish Birthday Card

This is another digital stamp from Pinterest (Pin #473229873336006274) that I printed with my HP Laser Printer onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored with Copic Markers: R39, R37, R85; BG34, BG32; Y38, Y23, Y08; V25, V22; YG67, YG17, YG03; YG61, YG03; YG97, YG95; BG49, BG15, BG13; BG0000.

I really didn’t like the look of the image, but I decided to try it with a dry embossed paisley background using some hot pink cardstock from Momenta Cardstock Carton 12 x 12 Paper Pad and the Cuttlebug Perfectly Paisley Embossing Folder.

I die cut a rectangle using rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles.  The sentiment from Mama Elephant Make a Wish was stamped prior to dry embossing with Hero Hues India Ink Black.  The image was traced onto some Darice Sticky Back Foam, fussy cut, and adhered to the back, then the image was glued a little to the right of the rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The rectangle was then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock,

I liked the way it turned out.  Sometimes all you need to pull a design together is to have the right background.

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.

This is a digital stamp that I found on Pinterest Pin #484529609874984134.  Poppies are such beautiful flowers and I love the contrast from red and green.  I have an aunt who turns 101 this November and I felt like the sentiment from Mama Elephant’s Make a Wish would make the perfect card for her.  She is amazing and should be celebrated every day.
