POWER POPPY CAMELLIAS HAPPY BIRTHDAY

This is another beautiful digital stamp from Power Poppy entitled Camellias.  I printed it with my small HP LaserJet printer on Bristol Smooth Cardstock since I planned to use my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers.  I used a very light grey ink so that it would be more of a no line watercolor look.  I like this cardstock, but the colors are very intense.  I like the blending I get with regular 140# Cold Press Cardstock better, but it is a pretty card.

00264Once the watercolored image was dry I ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle.  I then cut a strip of Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things Big Birthday Sentiments with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it using Recollections Snow Embossing Powder.  I then trimmed the piece to just larger than the sentiment, leaving enough for a fishtail ending on the left.  I used some 3M ½” Foam Tape behind the sentiment and adhered it to the focal image panel.  To add dimension I added Darice Adhesive White Fun Foam to the back of the image and then glued it to a top folding A2 card, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

POWER POPPY PEONIES BIRTHDAY WISH

This stamp is another digital image from Power Poppy entitled Peonies.  I love the big, bold blooms of this image.  I printed it on some Bristol Smooth Cardstock with my HP LaserJet Printer since I planned to color it with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers.  I have some peonies in my garden that are a mixture of blue and violet, depending on the pH of the soil, therefore, I decided to blend those two colors together to create this card.  I used my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers: 036 Light Blue; 080 Violet; 041 Light Green.

00261Once the watercolored image was dry I ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with Simon Says Stamp Bundles of Stitched Shapes Rectangle.  I then stamped the sentiment from Amy R. Great Birthday Greetings in the lower left.  To add dimension I added Darice Adhesive White Fun Foam to the back of the image and then glued it to a side folding A2 card, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

POWER POPPY TULIPS IN A HOBNAIL PITCHER BIRTHDAY WISH

I watched a video from Splitcoast Stampers entitled Palette Blending.  The image that was used in the video was a printed image from Power Poppy.  After watching the video I went to the Power Poppy website and downloaded several images.  This card uses Tulips in a Hobnail Pitcher.  One thing I really like about digital images is you can size them to whatever you desire.  You want to be sure that you print the image with ink that is compatible with your medium. Since I was going to watercolor the image I printed it with my small HP LaserJet printer on Bristol Smooth Cardstock.

00262I used my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers.  This is the first time I used this paper for watercoloring, and I found that it really holds the color of the marker, so the tulip a very vibrant in hue.  The colors used are listed below.  Once the watercolored image was dry I ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.  I then stamped the sentiment from Amy R. Great Birthday Greetings in the lower right with Hero Hues Black ink.  To add dimension I added Darice Adhesive White Fun Foam to the back of the image rectangle and then glued it to a top folding A2 card, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
