While searching Etsy for some digital stamps I ran across this image from Conie Fang that I really liked. I printed it with my ink jet printer on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers.
The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday and was stamped with Altenew Amalgam Ink.
I decided to frame the image with a Gina K. Designs Peekaboo Rectangle and added dimension with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.
This beautiful image is from Conie Fong. She has a lot of really cute girl images and a few pretty flower arrangements. It was printed onto some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock. I like this cardstock because it has a really smooth finish and you get beautiful results with your Copic Markers and also because its weight goes through most printers easily.
I search the interest for peony images and decided to color these flowers in a pretty soft pink. The smaller flowers were colored purple. I really like the combination of these two colors together.
Once the coloring was complete the sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and then heat set with gold embossing powder. To add visual interest it was die cut using a Spellbinder Fancy Edged Oval die. I liked the way it looked but I finally decided to really draw the eye to the focal image by cutting a gold frame from gold mirror cardstock using two of the same oval dies. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was cut into thin strips and added to the back of the oval frame and then the two die cuts were carefully adhered together. To help align two detailed die cuts with one having foam tape on then, put a little liquid glue on the foam tape and it allows you to move and adjust them until they align perfectly.
Dotliner adhesive was added to the back of the focal image and it was adhered to a side folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.
This beautiful, large hydrangea image is from Just Ink Line. It was printed onto some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored with Copic Markers.
To add visual interest the image was die cut with a Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Rectangle. The final embellishment was to Ranger Gold Stickles to the center of the flowers.
The sentiment is from Winnie & Walters The Party and was stamped with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink. Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the focal image and it was adhered to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.
This card is based on a card my husband received. It was more difficult to create than I first anticipated, but I really like the outcome.
The first time I tried making the card I adhered the diamond to the cardbase but when I went to cut away the edges I hadn’t left enough space for it to come to the point, so I started again and this time I cut away the side of the dark blue cardstock first and then adhered the diamond.
I cut a diamond using an Avery Elle Double Pierced Square from patterned paper. Another square was cut from light blue, leaving enough of a border to create a frame around the patterned paper diamond.
The cardbase was made from two side folding cardbases, one from blue and the second from white cardstock. The blue was cut on the side at an angle. The top of the white cardbase was embossed with a dotted embossing folder. It was too plain without it and the dots accentuated the dotted patterned paper. The two cardbases were adhered together with dotliner adhesive with the fold of the white cardbase at the bottom of the blue.
The cupcake is stamped on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and colored with Copic Markers, die cut with the matching dies, and adhered to the diamond with foam tape.
When you open the blue flap a diamond of different patterned paper are added to the top of the flap and another rectangle with a border are added to the center of the card.
When you drop the white cardbase in the center of the card another sentiment is stamped and a border of patterned paper has been added.
These are the same flowers that were used in my previous cards, but this time I decided to color them a deep burgundy red. They are lovely.
I stamped the flowers onto some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. and colored them with Copic Markers. To add depth I used a medium gray maker to add additional shadows to the corners where the flower petals met.
For the first card I used the largest flower with the leaves and added a small opening bud. Behind the flowers visual interest was added by adding a die cut of the Crafter’s Companion Grande Swirls die, adhered directly to a another quarter sheet rectangle with spray adhesive. To ensure it adhered well it was placed in a piece of folded typing paper and ran through the Big Shot. It was then die cut using a stitched rectangle and adhered to a side folding A2 cardbase.
Foam tape was added behind the flowers and they were adhered to the left of the decorative rectangle.
The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink onto black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. It was cut into a strip and tucked underneath the flowers.
For the second card a quarter rectangle was cut using a stitched rectangle and then embossed using the Cricut Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder. It was adhered directly to a side folding A2 Cardbase.
The three flowers of this card were arranged in a pleasing to the eye pyramid. The same sentiment strip was tucked underneath the flowers and the card was done.
On of my sister’s favorite colors are blue, periwinkle and pink. Her birthday is coming up soon and so I pulled out a flower bouquet stamp that I could color for her.
Copic Markers were used to color the image and then it was cut using the PIXScan Mat with the Silhouette Cameo.
I have always like this lattice background and it made a pretty visual interest to the focal image. It was die cut three time and they were glued together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Adhesive. The bouquet was adhered oval circle in the center of the lattice background with liquid glue.
I needed a smaller sentiment to fit in the available space at the bottom of the background. I decided to use blue ink to match the bouquet.
Jessica’s a very smart and pretty girl whose favorite color is red. She had mid length blond hair and this cute image looks a little bit like her.
To enhance the heart on her dress front I used the Hero Arts Window on Love Confetti Fancy Die. The rectangle had been die cut using a stitched rectangle. To give the image a base to stand I embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock with white embossing powder.
The image was adhered with foam tape and the card was done.
A sweet young girl at church has a birthday coming up. I selected an image that looks a little bit like Marissa and colored the hair the same as her’s. It was die cut using a PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.
A rectangle was cut using a Flower Grid Background Die and then backed with some blue cardstock. The same cardstock was used for the sentiment. The image and sentiment were adhered using foam tape.
