Antique Car Father's Day Card

This was a digital stamps called "Antique Car" posted May 23, 2012 at . I impossed the text onto the image using a script font. I printed it on my inkjet printer onto copic paper the coloured it with copics to give it an aged, distressed look. The copics I used were E30, E33, E35, E37. I sponged the edges and some surface with Memento Potter's Clay, the curled the edges with the scissor edge and inked the edges with Memento Rich Cocoa. I assembled the card using Bazzill Gold CS as the base and layered the elements with Bazzill Brown CS. The patterned paper is from BoBunny Weekend Market.

Copic Colouring Comparison- Bunnies

These 3 images were all coloured with copics using 3 different colour combos. The first one used W00, W1, W2, W3 (all warm gray). The second was coloured with N0,N1, N4 (neutral), and the third was coloured with C00, C1, C2, C3 (cool gray). They were all nice and depending on the colours of the paper used to make the card one might be nicer than the other. The stamp is called "Leap Frog" from Lili of the Valley. So many cute images.

Card Kit

These are 5 cards (2 of each) I made that I was sent as a bonus kit with an online order

Whipper Snapper Woodland Pals Christmas Cards

PPSS * I have copied this design from Tara Nixon of Creative Accents in Williams Lake. I hope she doesn't mind. They do say that copying someone elses work is the most sincere form of flattery. I hope she thinks so. I have made a few small changes but I loved her card so much I didn't really want to change anything. Tara - you are a very talented lady.
" Well, I finally finished these Christmas Cards. The stamps is Whipper Snapper "Woodland Pals". It was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black onto GinaK 120lb Luxury White Cardstock. I then coloured it with Copic Markers ( C1,3,5,7 E34,35,37,39, E30,31, B91,93,95,99. I then simply cut it into a rectangle and then sponged around the edges with Memento Dessert Sand and inked the edges with VersaColour Pinecone. I then mounted it onto Bazzil brown CS to frame the image. For a little added dimension I added some DecoArt Snow Writer to the hats and snow on the bottom and before it dried I sprinkled it with some Crystal Glitter Ritz Cool Highlights for a little sparkle. The rest of the card was completed with rectangles of patterned paper from the BoBunny "Snowfall" 6x6 paper pad. I distressed the edges of each of these pieces using Adirodack Acrylic Paint Dauber in Snow Cap. Then each piece was mounted again onto pieces of Bazzil Brown CS. All the pieces were layered onto a 6x6 Bazzil blue CS. For embellishments I used some "Merry Minis" glittery snowflakes I picked up a Michael's in their Christmas decoration section. I added some Kaiser Denium Pearls on the corner and to the snowflakes. The larger brown flower I picked up individually packed (I think they may have been from a Prima flower collection) and then daubed them with the paint dauber. The little brown flowers I purchased as a spray but had now blue flowers the right shade so I got out some white flowers and sprayed them with Glimmer Mist Frost and Smooch Spritz Sea Breeze. The insides of the cards are each a little different as I used up the paper pad. I cut the message out of plain white CS with Spellbinders using the largest of the Standard Circles Small and then layered it some Bazzil brown CS cut using Spellbinders larges of the Classic Scalloped Circles Small. The sentiment is called "Bright and Happy Holiday" by Impression Obession and then I inked and sponged the edges with Memento Dessert Sand for a more muted effect. I left space to be able to sign the card.

Once again, this image has been sitting on my desk awaiting assembly for quite some time now. The image was stamped with Inkadinkado Floral Inspiration stamp onto Gina K 120lb pure luxury cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured with copics (sorry, I didn't record the colours I used). The image was then cut out using Spellbinders oval die and distressed with Memento Dessert Sand and a sponge. It was then mounted onto some Bazzil green cardstock cut with Spellbinders scalloped oval die. Bazzil green cardstock was used for the card base, layered with Bazzil brown cs and pieces of Basic Grey "Curio" patterned paper. The edges were inked and distressed using Versa Mark pinecone ink. Can't remember off hand where I got the "With Sympathy" sentiment from but it was stamped using Memento Brown ink and cut with Spellbinders oval die, distressed with Desert Sand and layered with some brown grossgrain ribbon. The inside of the card was finished with another sheet from the Curio line and a message area created with Spellbinders Lacey Squares and Square dies.

Hero Arts Red Poppy All Occasion Card

This was a stamped image from Hero Arts called Delicate Blossoms. It was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Gina K 120lb luxury cardstock. Then it was coloured using copics - R22, R24, R27, R29, YG 95,YG97, YG99 and shadowed with T3. I had a bad bleed over on one of the smaller poppies and the blender pen couldn't correct it so I covered it up with a butterfly. The butterfly image I cut out of another image I stamped with the Inkadinkado stamp called Time Flies Collage. It was also coloured with copics - YR12,14,18, YO8,18, V17. I pieced the second wing underneath to look more like a butterfly that has landed on the flower. The whole image was cut out using Spellbinders Labels 8 along with some red cardstock cut from the same Spellbinder to frame the image. The image was edged with some Memento Tuxedo Black and distressed with Memento Dessert Sand and a sponge. The image was mounted onto a piece of black and silver striped pattern paper I had in my stash and couldn't find a manufacture on it. It was all mounted onto Bazzil white cardstock and used some sheer red ribbon to complete it. The inside of the card was done using some Basic Grey Little Black Dress "Elegant" paper and an area created for a message using some black, red and white cardstock. It didn't add any sentiment and decided to leave it blank as an all occasion card.
