Abstract Flowers Thinking of You

This is another lovely flower image from Alex Syberia Designs. It was printed onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer and then colored with Copic Markers. Once the coloring was complete the sentiment was stamped below the flowers.

The focal image was then die cut using Penny Black Swirly Stitched Rectangle. I love the unique stitching this die adds to a die cut rectangle. Sticky back foam was cut just smaller than the rectangle and adhered to the back for added dimension when adhering it to a top folding cardbase.

A few black sequins were scattered around the flower and sentiment and the card was done. Quick and easy.

Chinese Peony Thinking of You

I like the ruffled edges to this peony image. I printed it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer so that the lines would like bleed when coloring with Copic Markers.

Once the coloring was complete I stamped the sentiment below the flower image with Amalgam Ink.

For this card I decided to die cut the focal image using Penny Black’s Antique Frame. Sticky back foam was added behind for dimension. It was then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase with liquid glue.

The final embellishment was to scatter gold metallic confetti around the flower and sentiment and the card was done.

Winter Flowers Thinking of You

I know these flowers are called winter flowers, but I think they are gorgeous and can be used all year round. I did decide to color them white, with an accent of small pink flowers and love the way it turned out. This is probably my favorite thinking of you card I created for my friend Laina to give out to sisters at church struggling through this current crisis.

This is a digital image from Alex Syberia Designs that was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer. It was colored with Copic Markers. Once the coloring was complete the sentiment was stamped below the flowers.

I used Little B Frames to cut out the image. It is one of my favorites to add visual interest to a white on white card. Using the same die Darcie Sticky Back Foam was cut and then trimmed down and adhered behind the die cut to add dimension.

I recently purchased the larger Big Shot Plus and love the way I can emboss the front of cards because of its larger opening. I used the Darice Basketweave Embossing Folder to add visual interest behind the focal image. The focal image panel was adhered with a generous about of liquid glue because it needed to adhere well to the uneven texture of the card front. A few white sequins were scattered around the focal image and the card was done.

Spring Card Camp 2 Day 10 Letter Substitution Treat yo’ Self Candy Shop

Day 10 of the Spring Card Camp 2 was taught by Channin Pelletier. Her technique was all about substituting one of the letters in a die cut sentiment with an image. She used some cute critters and a flower. I decided to use a heart lollipop for my first card.

I created and cut my word in the Silhouette Cameo, cutting it five times from 80# white cardstock and then layering them together with liquid glue. I also pulled in my heart lollipop digi stamp and did an outline to cut around the image. I then cut the outline four more times so the lollipop would be the same dimension as the letters. The lollipop was substituted for the “a” in Happy.

When I was going through some of my 6″x6″ paper pads I saw this pink and white striped cardstock. It made me think of an awning over a store front and that is what I decided to do. I decided to use a sentiment from Scrapbook.com’s Sweet Celebrations for the store name and stamped it in top center of the patterned paper. I then used the scalloped border from Pretty Pink Posh to create my awning.

I positioned my letters and lollipop underneath the awning and then cut a thin rectangle at the bottom of the card for the bottom of the store front. Before gluing the letters and lollipop in place I stamped the secondary greeting with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it. The awning and lower store front were adhered with foam tape. The sentiment letters and lollipop were adhered in place with liquid glue. As a final embellishment I added Ranger Crystal Stickles to the heart lollipop and then adhered everything to a side folding A2 cardbase.
