On my first card,  I used the lovely Floral Sentiments 3. I stamped the poppies and one extra big poppy, colored with Copics and did an out of the box treatment when die cutting it with a large oval. On the extra poppy, I cut some of the petal in toward the center and popped them up for a little dimension. It’s framed with coral layer and the background on the right was stamped with an ODBD mini bg image. The designer paper was cut with a bracket border die and the greeting was stamped on an ODBD tag die. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

For my second card, I used the beautiful Floral Sentiments flower image and one of the Floral Sentiments 2 greetings. After stamping, coloring and die cutting the flower, I added some stickles down the center veins and a cobalt circle behind it. The greeting was die cut w/ the top part of an ODBD Recipe Card die and I resized it just a bit to make the tab narrower. The dp was die cut along the bottom edge with a border die..the cobalt band was embossed and I added an ODBD Fancy Foliage vine around the band. The white bg was also embossed

    Stunning cards and such beautiful coloring

  15. Holy smokes these cards are hot. The richness in your colouring is amazing. The blue card blew me away with the shiny gold.

  16. Love, love that peach card. It is really beautiful.

  17. Julie, I am blown away by how vibrant your cards are! I don’t have very many Copics, so it is always hard to get the shading right, but let me tell you, you are a master at it! Hugs, Sabrina

  18. Love how you colored your poppies and the gold stickles on the second card makes it just come to life. Great cards.

  19. Julie, these cards are beautiful, the coloring is great and love the brightness of them. With all this gloom this winter we need some color. Thanks for sharing.

  20. Fabulous layouts and coloring Julie! Love the added sparkle to the folowers!
