    Come see how easy it is to make a pretty floral card for someone special. Great for birthdays, Mother’s Day or just to say I’m thinking of you. The flowers have matching stencils & dies so coloring & cutting them is a breeze.

    A big congrats to Kathy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS898). She has a sweet little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the big floral theme & most of the colors, but I rearranged them a bit, moved the greeting, used different images, dies & stencils.

    After stamping the lovely flowers, I used the 2 part stencils, the detail brushes & color fuse inks to color them in before die cutting. The white background was cut w/ a quilted stitch cover die & the greeting stamped on a rectangle of coral. I added a darker coral scalloped frame behind the white panel.

    Thanks

  • Birthday Butterflies


    A birthday card sure to brighten a special someone’s day! All colors of the rainbow adorn the stenciled stripe strip & are continued in the trio of fancy butterflies. Touches of black make the colors pop!

    A big congrats to Beth, the newest Featured Stamper (FS897)! She has a super gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the birthday & butterflies theme, but I used different images, colors & dies, stenciled the stripes instead of using designer paper, and added some narrow black framing.

    My rainbow bright card started w/ the stenciled strip. I used almost every color of ink in the Color Fuse series, a distressed stripe stencil and some detail brushes. I used parts of a scallop rectangle frame die to border the strip & help it stand out. The fancy butterflies were colored & die cut w/ their coordinating dies. I used a little foam to pop them up. I liked this particular birthday greeting for its tall letters and graphic look. To me, it paired well w/ the stripes above it.

    A narrow black layer was added behind the main panel to tie it all together.
    Here are the Copics I used on the butterflies:

  • Wonderful Day Oval



    A clean & simple card that’s easy to make and easy to customize by changing the colors or the greeting. Add a black border for some impact against the white.


    A big congrats to Cristena, the newest Featured Stamper (FS894). She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case.  I kept the wildflower in the oval layout, but I used different images, dies & colors & a few less layers.


    For my card, I placed the new Oval mask on a die cut piece of white card stock. The greens were sponged in from the bottom up & the purples were sponged from the top down. I left just a bit of white between the 2 colors, then added the blue to bridge the colors. When using 2 opposite colors like green & purple, it’s important not to try to blend them together or it will usually look like mud. I used the lt blue because it blends well w/ both the purples & the greens.

    After removing the mask, the pretty Silhouette Wildflowers were stamped on top of the sponged area. The word day was stamped beneath the oval & I cut a thin strip w/ the wonderful word on it to fit the oval. The image was attached to a black, die cut panel before adding to a white card.
