Alright, let’s get into some cards!

Altenew - Poppy Garden Stamp Set and Across the Pond Stamp Set - Ashley Tucker - 1.jpg

This first card features stamps from the new Poppy Garden stamp set and a sentiment from the Across the Pond set. I started by stamping a whole bunch of the florals onto some Neenah classic crest solar white cardstock with a Copic friendly black ink.

I then colored in all of the flowers and leaves with my Copic markers. Be sure to check out the video if you want to know all of the colors I used for this! The coloring did take some time because there was a lot of it, but I find the time flies by because it is so relaxing. Once the coloring was done I cut out all of the images.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink onto a 8.5x3.5 piece of white cardstock. I then arranged all of the florals onto that panel. I adhered most of them with liquid adhesive, but the two larger flowers I popped up with foam tape. I then popped the whole panel up onto a 9x4 fog gray card base.

For the finishing touches on this first card I used a white gel pen to add some details to the flowers. I then added a bunch of clear sequins tucked in all around the flowers.

Altenew - Wavy Outline Die Set and Fancy Thanks Die - Ashley Tucker - 1.jpg

For the second card I used the Wavy Outlines and the Fancy Thanks die sets. I first took a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and blended different sections with Distress Oxide ink to die cut. I blended one section with the colors Bundled Sage and Pine Needles, one with Scattered Straw and Wild Honey, and the last section with Abandoned Coral and Seedless Preserves.

Next I took one of the dies from the Wavy Outlines die set and cut it out of the blended ares so that I would have different colored pieces. This die cuts out an outline of the floral, but it is the inner pieces that I wanted for the blended cuts. I made sure to keep all of these pieces so that I could piece them together later. I then took the same die and cut it out of a piece of white cardstock. For this cut it is the outline that I wanted to keep. Finally I used the die on a panel of light gray cardstock. I removed all of the cut pieces so that I had just the panel with the shape cut from the center.

Now to put all the pieces together! I love doing die cut in-lay cards, it is like a puzzle! So I took the gray panel and adhered it to a piece of white cardstock, making sure to add adhesive to the entire panel of white cardstock (even the area where the hole is in the gray piece.) Having adhesive on the whole panel makes it easy to piece together the flowers. First I placed the white outline cut and then I filled in the rest of the holes with the blended pieces.

I popped up the gray panel onto a white card base. I then used the Fancy Thanks die to cut out a bunch of sentiments in black cardstock and glued them all together to make a dimensional piece. I then cut one out of white cardstock and glued it on top. I added the sentiment onto the card and then finished it up with some clear sequins.

For my card I used the Healing Hugs stamp set. I stamped the floral from the set onto a panel of Cornflower blue cardstock with Gina K’s In the Navy ink. I then colored that in with Prismacolor pencils.

4.jpg

Using the same floral stamp I stamped around the edge of the panel using Versamark ink. I picked out the “Get Well Soon” sentiment which fits perfectly inside the floral wreath. I stamped that with the In the Navy ink and then I stamped it again right on top with Versamark ink. This way I was able to emboss over that sentiment with a clear embossing powder.

2.jpg

I dragged my Versamark ink pad along the edges of the panel and then embossed that with silver embossing powder. I blended some white ink onto the center of the card and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink along the edges. Using a clean cloth I wiped away any of that ink that was on the embossed areas.

5.jpg

I popped up that panel onto a 6x6 card base made out of In the Navy cardstock. Next I used a white gel pen to add a small amount of highlights to the flowers. I also took that pen and added little dots in different sizes around the wreath.

3.jpg

To finish up the card I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the centers of all the flowers to add some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by with me! I hope you have a blast this Stamptember. Happy crafting!

Copic Coloring a Floral Background | Simon Says Stamp

Hello my friends! Today’s card features the new Daisy Bouquet stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and some Copic coloring.

I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then stamped the flowers around the sentiment with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink.

2.jpg

I colored in the flowers with Copic markers and added some highlights with a white gel pen.

3.jpg

I cut the panel down and adhered it to a piece of Simon Says Stamp Midnight Green cardstock. I then took that whole panel and popped it up on a white card base with foam tape.

4.jpg

To finish up I added some sequins using Gina K Designs Connect Glue. I used Moonshine sequins from Simon Says Stamp and White Orchid sequins from Lucy’s Cards. I also added some Wink of Stella glitter randomly to the flowers.

Colored Pencils on Kraft Cardstock | Mother's Day Card

Hello friends! I am back today with a Mother’s Day card using some products from Simon Says Stamp.

1.jpg

I stamped and embossed the large floral from the Sketched Flowers stamp set on some Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I colored in the image using Prismacolor pencils.

3.jpg

I stamped a sentiment from the Love You Mama stamp set onto a strip of vellum and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder.

2.jpg

I folded the ends of the sentiment strip around the background and glued the flaps to the back. I then glued that whole panel to an A2 size card base.

4.jpg

To finish up the card I added a bunch of sequins from the Girl’s Best Friend sequin mix.

Blossoming Cherry Tree Shaker Card | Simon Says Stamp

Today I am using one of the new stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp’s Fresh Bloom release!

1.jpg

First I stamped the tree from the Blossoming stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Gina K Amalgam ink. I then colored in the image with Copics and fussy cut it out with scissors.

2.jpg

I created a background panel by blending some Distress Oxide inks onto some Bristol Smooth paper. I blended the colors Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. I then used my fuse tool to turn the background into a shaker pocket. I used large clear glitter and clear micro pearls from my shaker bits.

4.JPG

I adhered the shaker pocket onto a card base and then glued the tree onto the pocket. For my sentiment I embossed one of the stamps with white embossing powder onto Simon Says Stamp Slate cardstock. I popped the sentiment strip onto the card with foam tape.

3.JPG

For the finishing touched on the card I first randomly added dabs of Glossy Accents to the flowers on the tree and sprinkle Unicorn Dust glitter onto them. I then used a white gel pen to add highlights and details to the tree. Finally I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter.
