Swallowtail Birthday Card

I just love the Swallowtail stamp from Stampin' Up.  Here is a birthday card I made with it:



This card is 4x5.25.  I first stamped the image with Versamark, then embossed with Stampendous Detailed Black Embossing powder.  I then colored the image and background with a variety of Copic markers.

A Fishing Card - Northwoods Rubber Stamps and Copic

Here is a card that I made for my husband.  The card is 4 x 5.5. 



The card was made with the following:
  • Copic Markers B00, B12, B14, Y13, Y17, YR18, G24, G46, YG25, T0
  • Atyou Spica Clear and Gold
  • Glossy Accents
  • DCWV Neutral Stack
  • Northwood Rubber Stamp M9513 Fish Jumping For Lure  
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
To make this card, I stamped the image twice with Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock.  The fish on both images was colored with Copic Markers.  The fish that I liked the best was then fussy cut out, and highlights were added with the Atyou Spice Gold pen.  The highlights do not show well on the photo.

I then completed coloring the other image, adding color to the lure and water, both were then highlighted with Atyou Spica Clear.  I added Glossy Accents to the lure.

The image was then cut down in size, and matted with navy and yellow DCWV paper.  These were then added to the card base which was a red-orange from the DCWV Neutral Stack paper. 

To add dimension, pop dots were added to the fish which was cut out.  This fish was then attached to the image.

Easter Card with Elizabeth Craft Peel-off Stickers and Embossing

Here is the last of my Easter Cards.  I saw a similar card at: http://bobbistreasure.blogspot.com/2014/01/owh-mid-week-throw-down-pastels.html and liked it so much I made my own version! 

This card is 4 x 5.5 and was made with the following:

  • Darice Embossing Folder - Cherry Blossoms
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
  • DCWV - Brights Stack
  • Glitter Ritz Cool Highlight
  • Copic Markers - G24, R83, Y06, B00 
  • Peel-off Stickers Easter Eggs - 2541
  • Sookwang Double sided tape
  • Elizabeth Craft Design Peel Off Stickers - Small Eggs 898


  • To make this card, I cut the yellow card stock to 3.75 X 5.25 and embossed it with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, and attached it to the card base.  The Green layer was cut at 2.75 x 4.25 and attached.  The pick layer was cut at 2.5 x 4, embossed with the Darice embossing folder and attached.

    For the Easter Egg, I put the Sookwang double sided tape on a piece of white card stock, and then exposed the tape, and added the Easter Egg peel off sticker.  Cool Highlight Glitter Ritz was added and burnished in.  The Egg was then colored with Copic Markers. I cut around the egg, saving a 1/2 inch stripe which was stamped with the sentiment.  The Easter Egg and the sentiment were then added to the card.

    Easter Card with Elizabeth Craft Peel Offs and Heat Embossing

    I've wanted to try heat embossing with a peel off sticker.  I did that with this card.


    This card is 4x5.5 and was made with the following:
    • Glitter Borders Gold 7010
    • Peel-off Stickers Easter Eggs - 2541
    • Various Embossing Powders
    • DCWV Violet Leaf Stack
    • Sookwang Double sides tape 5 inches
    To make this card, I put the Sookwang double sided tape on a piece of white card stock, and then exposed the tape, and added the Easter Egg peel off sticker.   Instead of just adding the outline portion of the sticker, I used transfer tape to add all parts of the sticker.  (There is a good you tube video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSQSemwY45I showing how to do this).  I then removed the background for the flowers, added the embossing powder and heated.  I repeated this for all parts of the sticker (leaves, stems, basket and background). 

    I used several different patterns from the Violet Leaf Stack for the background added Gold Glitter borders between the different patterns, and then placed the Easter Egg in the center.

    • Cuttlebug Textile Texture
    • Sookwang Double sides tape 5 inches
    • Storybook Cricut Cartridge

     
     
    To make this card, I put the Sookwang double sided tape on a piece of white card stock, and cut the background image (Marquee) with the Storybook Cricut Cartridge Storybook and 3.5 inches.  I then exposed the tape, and added the Easter Egg peel off sticker.  Glitter Ritz was added and the egg was then colored with Copic Markers. 
     
    I then added Sookwang tape to two 1/2 X 4 inch strips of white paper, exposed the tape, added the Cool Highlight Glitter Ritz, and colored both strips with Y06 Copic Marker. 
     
    A two inch piece of Shimmer Sheets was embossed with Textile Texture.
     
    The Glittered strips, embossed Shimmer Sheets were added to the card.  Black outline stickers were added between each area, and then the main image was added over the top.

    Easter Card with Elizabeth Craft Desgins Peel Off Stickers

    For this card I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Peel Off Stickers, Glitter Ritz Micro Fine Glitter, Copic Markers, and a Cherry Lynn Doily Die.


    The card is 4 x 5.5.  After cutting the Doily in my Cuttlebug, I cut it in half, and attached each half to the side of the card.  For the Easter Eggs and butterflies, I applied Sookwang Double Sided tape to a piece of white card stock, exposed the tape, and then added the Peel Off stickers.  Cool Highlight Glitter Ritz was then added.  I used various colors of Copic markers to color the eggs and butterflies.

    Another layout using Lea France templates

    Here are two more layouts using the Honeycomb and Grid templates.  I really love using the templates since I can get a lot of pictures on one page, in an organized manner.
