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–

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.

Ever Since We Said I Do……

Scrappy Boy Design Team Project – May 2, 2022

I had so much fun making this card with my husband, Louie. We grew up watching the show that inspired this month’s release and we enjoyed reminiscing as I colored up the images with my Copic markers.

I tried to keep this card’s color palette simple… combining a soft pink with grayscale tones. The Copic Markers used on this project are photographed below. For her lips, I used R81.

This release is so much fun. There are two 6×8 stamp sets and coordinating outline dies, coordinating stencils and the cutest coordinating paper packs in both 6×6 and slimline. See to check out all Sean has to offer.

I used Scrappy Boy’s A2 Stitched Scalloped Edge Dies. They cut like butter and are powder-coated in Scrappy Boy Blue, which helps me tell my dies apart from others.
