My Favorite Things Cupcake Day — Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Hi Guys! Today I’m sharing a card I made with My Favorite Things Cupcake Day stamps and die-namics. This little cutie is perfect for coloring and she comes with three sweet sentiments. I also added a fun decorative bottom to my card with pattern paper and a scallop edge die-namic.

I used the scallop edge die-namic to cut off a bit of the bottom front of an A2 card base. Then I cut a piece of pattern paper to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and adhered it to the inside front of the card with the pattern facing out. Because the back of the pattern paper is white and it is cut to A2 size, it blends in seamlessly with the card base when the card is opened.

I stamped the cupcake girl and her balloon in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Copic friendly paper and cut them out with the coordinating die-namics. I colored them in with Copic markers and used a white gel pen to add a white highlight to the balloon.

COPIC COLORS: RV02, RV04, RV09, Y13, Y15, Y19, BG11, BG13, E00, E11, E13, R20, Y11, E30, E23 

I stamped the sentiment directly on the card front with my MISTI, attached the little girl with foam adhesive for added dimension, and finished it off with some retired Stampin’ Up! Candy dots.

I really love the way the decorative bottom turned out on this card and I will definitely be using this technique more often!

Avery Elle Floral Bouquet Card

Hi guys! Today I am sharing a card I made with the Avery Elle Floral Bouquet stamps and dies. The flowers are so pretty and can be colored in with your favorite coloring medium.

Today I colored my flowers in with Copic markers and I’m looking forward to making another card with watercolors. If you’re not into coloring — no problem these flowers would look great stamped and left uncolored too!

To begin my card I stamped the flower images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copic marker. I used a white gel pen to highlight the center of the flowers and I cut them out with the coordinating dies.

COPIC COLORS: B63, B66, BV02, RV04, V17, YG03, YG05, YG17

Using my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of 80# white cardstock and mounted it on a green cardstock mat layer.  The MISTI helps me stamp the sentiment in exactly the right place and if I don’t get a perfect image the first time I can just stamp it again right over the original image.

I placed the large flower bouquet on my card front overlapping the top and left edge and trimmed off the excess. I used these excess pieces on the bottom and right edge of the card. I really like how this makes it look like the flowers are growing in from the sides.

I added an individual flower and leaf above the sentiment and then attached the card front to an A2 110# white card base. I used a few sequins for a bit of sparkle and to tie all of the elements together.

TIP: I like to use 100# or 110# cardstock for the base of my cards and 80# (if available) for the layers. The heavier cardstock base is nice and sturdy and using a lighter weight for the layers prevents the card from becoming too bulky.

Summer Vibin’ with Craftin Desert Divas

Today I made another card with the Craftin Desert Divas Summer Vibin’ stamp set. This little mermaid is so sweet…almost as sweet as the little alligator I used on my card for the Craftin Desert Divas & CardMaker Magazine Summer Blog Hop. Truly, all the stamps in this set are so cute it’s really unfair to play favorites 😉

I started my card by stamping the mermaid with Memento Tuxedo black ink on Copic friendly cardstock and coloring her in with Copic markers. Then I cut her out with a pair of precision scissors leaving a small white border.

TIP: To get a the effect of scales on her tail, I dotted on different shades of BG, B and BV Copics.

I used Distress Ink and a blending tool to create my background. I started blending from a craft mat onto my card, adding more ink towards the bottom for a nice ombre effect. Then I used a paintbrush to flick on some water drops — because Distress Ink is reactive with water, anywhere the water lands becomes lighter.

It’s hard to see in the photos but, I also flicked on some Clear Wink of Stella giving the background a bit of shimmer.

I cut out my distressed background with a stitched rectangular die, mounted it on a slightly larger mat of purple cardstock and attached it to a white A2 card base.

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments on the purple cardstock with VersaMark ink and white embossing powder. Then I cut them out with Lawn Fawn Sentiment Banner dies, trimming the strips to fit my card.

I attached the mermaid to the card with foam adhesive for some dimension and added some sequins with micro glue dots for a bit of bling.
