Two – For – One – Tuesday

Featuring Products from Stamp Anniething & Artesprix

I am sharing a card and bookmark combo featuring The Poppy stamp set from Annie’s Garden at Stamp Anniething and sublimation inks and bookmark blanks from Artesprix.

Ink looks dull BEFORE sublimation is complete.

I traced the outline of the bookmark “blank” with a regular pencil onto plain copy paper and then stamped image using Black Artesprix ink and then colored in using Artesprix Colored Markers especially formulated for sublimation.

What is sublimation, you ask?

Sublimation Definition
When heat is applied to your colored image, the pigments turn to gas and transfer to your sublimation blank.
Place blank onto the colored image with coated side (if not coated on both sides) kissing colored image. Secure with heat tape (don’t skimp on this step)

I then cut 2 pieces of special protective paper / parchment and created a “sandwich” with the colored image taped to blank facing up and a second piece of parchment on the bottom. This helps contain any ink that escapes during the process. Having the paper face up allows the heat to hit the back of the image and transfer to the blank underneath.

I used a mat from Artesprix to protect my surface and pressed my heat press firmly on top of the “sandwich.” I purchased a no name brand from Amazon for under $80 and have been very pleased. I pre-heated my press to 390 degrees and pressed for 90 seconds. I decided to continue to press another 90 seconds and after a significant cool-down period, the results were stunning!

I used the same image and stamped on Hammermill 110 lb cardstock. I colored up with my Copic Markers. I stamped the image on Gina K masking paper and fussy cut. I placed the mask on top if my image to protect it. I ink blended using a palm ink blender, Annie’s blue inks over the sun ray stencil from Stamp Anniething.

  • Orange Mat- 5 1/2 in x 4 1/4 in
  • Yellow Mat – 5 1/4 in x 4 in
  • White (stamp image on this piece) 4 3/4 in x 3 1/2 in – pop up and center on yellow with foam tape
I love how a simple bookmark elevated my card into a gift!

Memorial Day Card Inspiration

Thank you to the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice. This card’s color pallet was inspired by the colors in our American 🇺🇸Flag.

A2 Size Card featuring Annie’s Garden Stamp Set: Bumblebee and Roses

I created this card using images from the Bumblebee and Roses set from Annie’s Garden.

I stamped the flowers onto a A2 size card panel using Memento Black Ink on card stock that is alcohol ink friendly. I used 110 lb Hammermill paper.

Stamp your image in different angles on card panel to cover.

I started coloring the leaves using my COPIC markers. Y04, YG07 and G09 were used to color the leaves.

Sometimes if you are coloring something quickly, I do assembly line coloring, to speed like colored objects.

I don’t always go ahead, as I like the ink to be wet when coloring so that the colors blend automatically, the work is done for you when you apply the ink layers while the ink underneath is still wet, or at least damp.

To color the RED roses, I used the following blend: BV23 (shadow/under paint), R22, R24, R29, and R39.





Add shadows down first with BV23
After coloring all the flowers, I decided I wanted to create a wooden background. I divided the panel using a ruler and doodled with a Micron permanent black ink and filled in with Copic markers to complete the background.
Continue down the panel until wood pattern is complete

COPIC Blends are as follows:

  • Blue Roses – B01, FBG2, FB2, B12 and B18
  • White Roses – C1, Y000 and RV000
  • Bumblebee – Y000, YR23, YR27, FY1 and BG11
  • Wood – E57, E53, E51, E50 (shadow BV31 & E13)

Once the Copic coloring was complete, I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to add extra depth to the shadows. Thank you for your support. Please like and follow! Happy Crafting!❤️

FRIENDS – Square Card

Featuring May 2022 Release: Hello Everyone

The main front panel started with a 6×6 piece of paper from the coordinating paper pack from this release. I then cut a piece of 12×12 paper in white in half and scored at 6 inches to form the card base. The panel was glued on top of the card base.

I stamped 3 images from the stamp set and pulled out my color wheel and decided on 3 colors to form my pallet: yellow, pink and blue. This forms a triangle on the wheel. It is called a triadic color scheme.

Hello Everyone Stamp Set

I chose the images with the bird, kitty and frog hoodies. The color blends used are:

  • Light Skintone – E04, E11, E21, E00, E000 and R20 cheeks
  • Dark Skintone – E59, E57, E15, E33, E31 and R22 cheeks
  • Bird Hoodie – T9, T7, T4; Beak – Y23 and Y19 and T0 – white sections
  • Brunette Hair -E59, E34 and E57
  • Kitty Hoodie -BG0000 (white parts used to lay down shadow
  • Blonde Hair -E25, Y26, Y21 and YR24
  • Pink Bow & Shirt/Socks – FRV1 and RV00 – (Silver Spica pen dotted for glitz)
  • Overall Shorts – FBG2 and BG000 (white gel pen for polka dots)
  • Frog Hoodie & socks – FYG2, YG01, Y00
  • Black Hair – BG02, C3, C5, 100
  • Striped Dress – R20, R24, R39 and R39

I used a geometric basic stencil and the coordinating stencil from this release on top of one another to create an inked panel to show off my colored images. I matted the square in coordinating colors and cut strips of other patterned paper for added interest. The images were adhered to card with dimensional foam tape.

My Blood Type is –COFFEE–

Are you someone who can’t do anything BEFORE coffee? If so, this set is for you! Have you seen Scrappy Boy’s newest line called Cute Girls? They are really just that!! CUTE! Each month, Sean plans to release a new theme of CUTE GIRLS. You’ll want them all!!!❤️

I created this A2 size card by cutting a piece of white card stock and stamping the coffee girl with IV pole in the center. I then created the hospital room scene using COPIC markers.

Chocolate Makes Everything Better

I started the card using a 110 lb cardstock and used the U Bridge Card Die Set from Stamp Anniething. It allows you to create this fun fold card simply and a photo of the dies are below.

U Bridge Card Die

This die cuts several pieces and score lines you will need to use by your bone folder down the scored edges to smooth and crisp folds.

I used the 6×6 coordinating paper pack and selected the coordinating paper to create the scene using the die and then gluing the patterned papers onto the base card previously cut out of the white cardstock with liquid glue.
