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 http://www.scrappyboy.com 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.
I started with a piece of white cardstock cut 5 1/4 x 4 and used the Hearts and Dots stencil, which is one of two coordinating stencils released this month. Because I wanted a card to reflect the nostalgia of black and white TV, I used a combination of black and gray to create dimension. I also shifted the stencil slightly and used the dirty blending brush (I didn’t add additional ink) and ink blended over the entire stencil. This created a slight gray shadow.
I then cut the stenciled piece in half in half (the long way), leaving one piece for another project. I then cut the remaining piece in half, long-wise and then one strip in half, leaving one fatter vertical piece and two thinner strips. I ink blended the edges lightly to give dimension.
I cut a piece of black cardstock 5 1/4 in x 4 in. I cut a piece of black and white polkadot 2 in x 4 in. from the coordinating paper pack. I glued the stenciled pieces to the black cardstock. I then glued the polkadot piece 1/2 in. from the bottom of the black cardstock. All the colored elements were popped up with foam tape. A flag was cut for the sentiment.

Double-Stick Foam Tape
Gold Embossing Powder
White Gel Pen
Memento Black Ink
5 1/2 x 11 in heavy card base, scored at 5 1/2
Distress oxide inks
1 1/2 in circle punch or die (straight edge and scalloped edge)
I used The Magic Lamp Stencil on a piece of white card stock to make a background! So much fun!
I stamped the genie and the lamp images on white Hammermill card stock in 110 lb weight with Mememto Black Ink.
Genie Bottom – BG10, BG11, BG53, BG13 and white gel pen accents
Bracelets – Y13, Y15 and Y17, YR24

I used scraps to adorn my project, just looked for complementary shades from the colors in the patterned paper. Images were popped up with foam tape. Sentiment embossed with Versamark Ink on maroon card stock with Gold Embossing Powder to complete the card. THANKS for checking my project out. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
Exited to share this card where I took one image and used masking and creative color placement to creating a totally different look. In a FLASH, I created a SPIDER!!!
I used the the coordinating paper pack to create the primary background, as well as a skyline die from my stash. You can find the entire collection at http://www.scrappyboy.com.
I stamped the image, masking the face and certain markings on the body. You can mask with post-it notes , tape or by simply wiping off from the areas of the stamp directly.
I colored the image with Copic Markers after lightly penciling in new details to include the eyes of the mask, 🕷suggestion of a spider on the belly and the classic lines on the suit, including his feet. I also took a piece of metallic thread to create a faux web. No metallic thread, look for a piece of Easter Grass or other thread.
Approximately every 4th week, Scrappy Boy Design Team Members get to go back and pick a random set from a prior release to feature a project around. For my FLASHBACK day, I chose a set from November 2021. There are 3 stamp sets and a coordinating paper pack.

Scrap black piece for sentiment. Strip should be at least 4.25 in long.
Black and white scraps to die cut FLAG layers .
White panel to create background panel for stamping and coloring, so use by our favorite for whatever medium you are using. I used Perfect Blend Alcohol Marker Cardstock in white. Final measurement is 3.75 x 5, but I use a slightly larger piece and then cut down.

I stamped William – You Drive Me Wild on alcohol marker blending paper from Brutus Monroe. I colored image with Copic Markers and cut out with the coordinating outline die. I also cut out the flag (solid) in white and the checkered layer in black and adhered together to create the checkered flag.
William was popped up with double-stick foam tape. As well as the checkered flag and sentiment. The sentiment was heat embossed on a strip of black paper with white embossing powder using my Stamp Anniething HOT PINK heat gun and then adhered to the banana panel, I previously created, at an angle and used as a grounding or landing spot for the main image.
I had so much fun making this card. I wanted it to be colorful, like I remember the comic pages used to be, tucked in between the other black and white pages of the Sunday paper. I wanted there to be lots of angles and layers of tone on tone colors behind my focal point, one of the cutest little super heroes you ever did see in a stamp set from http://www.ScrappyBoy.com.
To make this A2 sized card, I used the following:
White Card Base – 4.25 in x 11 in, scored at 5.5 in
Red Card Panel – 5.5 in x 4.25 in
Black Card Panel- 5.25 in x 4 in
White Card Panel – 5 1/8 in x 3 7/8 in
Filmstrip diecut in black
Various Patterned Paper (use up scraps)
Scrap strips in black, red and white for your sentiment
I used Scrappy Boy Stamps’ new slimline comic strip builder frame and ink blended solid blocks of bright colors using distress ink pads in candy apple red, carved pumpkin, squeezed lemonade and peacock feathers on the white card panel. I then ink blended with the same color for a tone on tone with different patterns from a second stencil that Scrappy Boy Stamps released called Half-Tone Dots, as well as another stencil from my stash. The effect you are trying to achieve is movement and interest, so get creative.
I glued the ink-blended panel to the black panel, leaving a small frame around the edge. I then glued the black panel to the red panel and then the double-matted panel onto the card base.
I decorated the front by gluing a filmstrip diecut, after piecing patterned paper from the coordinating 6×6 paper pack called SuperHeros. This was adhered to the card front at an angle with double-stick foam tape for added dimension.
The super hero from the SUPER TEAM set was stamped with Momento Black Ink on Hammermill 110 lb white card stock, colored with Copic markers in the following combinations:
Red Suit – R20, R24, R29, R39
Yellow – Y13, Y15 and Y17
Flesh – E51, E30, E50
Flames – Yellows and accented with red flicks using combos above.
Sentiment stamped with Black ink on a strip of white card stock treated with an anti-static powder bag in my stamp positioner. I then cleaned the stamp, leaving the strip in the positioner in place and stamped the sentiment over the original black impression with Versamark and then applied clear embossing powder and heat embossed the sentiment with my heat gun. I find that by using the positioner, I don’t have to fight with stray black embossing powder flecks and still gets a bold, shiny, black finish on my embossed images. I matted the sentiment with layers of black and red to tie everything together. I left the edges of the sentiment strip with strong, wonky angles for some playfulness. The card was finished off with embossed candy dots in black.

This card features a 2×3 stamp set that was one of the Stamps of the Month. You can see the entire set below.
I used a stamp positioner and the Wreath Builder Stencil from Gina K Designs to create the wreath with chick images and a smaller heart stamp to create the front of my card panel.
I used a rainbow pattern of aqua pigments and colored the images as you would watercolor. I used red to color all the hearts. Once dried, I added a small amount of glossy accents to each of the hearts for added shine and dimension.
To finish my card, I matted several layers and heat embossed my sentiment on a circle punch using black glitter card stock for added interest.
Measurement of my finished card is 5.5 in x 5.5 in square.
Watercolor panel – 4.25 in x 4.25 in
Black Matt – 4 3/8 in x 4 3/8 in
Red Matt – 5 in x 5 in
Black Matt – 5 3/8 in x 5 3/8 in
Red Card Base- 5.5 in x 5.5 in (I glue a piece of lightweight white card stock or copy paper slightly smaller and adhere only at the top so you can write your message easily inside when using darker card bases.
Sentiment heat embossed with Alabaster White on black glitter card stock and matted with red to coordinate with the other layers.
