Poppies from Red Hibiscus Designs and 7 Kids Crafts

Today I am back with a fun digital stamp from Red Hibiscus Designs, who has teamed up with 7 Kids Crafts.  Luisana Lowry, is such a talented artist and I am so thrilled that she has joined the 7 Kids Family.   

You can get this image free through Sunday by being a member of the 7 Kids Crafts Facebook group.    If you are not a member, it’s simple, just ask to join. 

Because I have never colored Poppies, before coloring I googled looking for colors. – Believe it or not- Poppies are not just red.  I had no idea there were so many combos, but decided for this first one to go a bit traditional.   I loved the photos I saw where the Stamens were Purple, so I went for the color combo. 

Copics Used:
R59, R37, R35, R32, R22, YG67, YG17, YG63
Stamens- V17, V12

I did add some Tonic Studios Nuvo Aqua Flow Glimmer Gloss Pen to the petals, however it is hard to see in the photos. 
I went for a very simple card as I really feel like the image (along with the sentiment I typed in a pretty font and added) really speak for themselves.     

I printed the sentiment on a piece of vellum and after wrapping one end, put a bit of Tonic Nuvo glue pen on the other end in 2 small spots and put a few small enamel dots over the glue to hide those spots.   Lastly, I matted the image on my card base. 

I hope you enjoyed!

A Space Birthday

Today I am back with a fun card that shares a new technique for me- alcohol inks and Yupo Paper.

I started by taking a piece of Yupo paper and my Ranger Alcohol inks in the following colors:

Pool, Pink Sherbert and Purple Twilight.   I slowly dripped the ink on my paper allowing it to flow just a bit then took my applicator and blended a bit by dropping up and down.   I did not want a super blend, but rather wanted it to look like a night sky.    I was surprised this being my first time using at how quickly this dried. 

I used A Boy's Dream as well as the Moon Background Stamp from Whimsy Stamps. 

Once it was dry I used my A2 Layers Combo dies  from The Stamp Doctor to cut my base layer and my sky. 

I colored my Moon and spaceship with Copic Markers:
W5, W3, W1, T5, T3, T1
B39, B37, B24
YR68, YR65, Y17

Next I fussy cut both images out (I did cut off the top of the space ship/rocket.  It was very small to fussy cut and I id not like how it looked.

I added some foam tape to the moon and adhered to my card base.   I then flipped over and cut the edges that were overhanging off.   I also added some foam tape/dots to the rocket.   I stamped my sentiment on my white cardstock and after cutting down I inked the edges with Lawn Fawn Deep Sea ink.  Once I adhered it to the bottom I placed my image over the end.    I then used a white gel pen to add "stars" to my background, and then lastly I finished by adding some glossy accents to the glass windows on the ship.   

I hope you enjoyed this fun card!  I can't wait to continue to play with these stamps, dies and inks and see what else we can come up with!

Making faces Tobie from Some Odd Girl

Total confession time for me.  I love all of the digis that Some Odd Girl carries but I have a special adoration for characters Tobie and Tia.  You see my dogs are Toby and Tia – so those names just pull at my heart.   

So when Kristy released Making Faces Tobie digi (and there’s also a Making Faces Tia digi as well) I definitely jumped at the opportunity to play with them. 

Making Faces Tobie makes me think of telling one of my nephews to smile when I take a photo and I get a funny face.   

So I decided to make a faux polaroid frame for the card.  I used The Stamp Doctor's A2 Layers combo diesfor my layers.  

Colors used:  

ProMarkers: Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush and bit of baby pink for his cheeks.

Pants and shoes: B95, B93, B91
Hair: E79, E25, E23  (added some Prismacolor Pencil- chocolate- PC 1082)
Hoodie- YR68, YR65
Eyes: YG09, YG03
Shirt and socks: W1 (wanted more of a white look so one muted gray helps)
White gel pen for accents

I used Echo Park’s 6 x 6 Imagine That – Boy, and Moody Blue cardstock from Bazzil.   I inked the edges of my cardstock with Lawn Fawn Deep Sea. 

I then added some enamel dots from my stash.  I have linked some alternatives below that would work with this card and colors.  Last I added some cork embellishments from my stash.  

I hope you enjoyed!

Peaceful dragonfly tutorial with The Stamp Doctor

I am so excited to be back with a full tutorial featuring Peaceful Dragonfly from The Stamp Doctor.  If you just want to watch a video- please scroll to the bottom.

For this card - products used are below.   Right now the Nested Ovals and Zig Zag border dies are on sale March 11 through March 17th at 20% off!  Also you can use code angelsheartsnmemories to get 10% off non-sale products.

Dies and stamps used:

Papers I used for this card.   Enamel dots can be used but for this tutorial

Other items used:

I started by cutting my bases with the A2 Layers combo.  Next I inked the edges with Lawn Fawn Grape Jelly ink.  

Next I cut my Ovals using the Nested Ovals and stamped my sentiment with my black ink.   Once stamped I adhered everything together to get my layers.

Next I cut 2 strips of paper down (patterned and solid) so that I could run through my die cutting machine with the Zig Zag Borders dies.

One helpful hint.... because the zig zag border dies come with a cutting one, a cutting and stitch one and also a stitch one.... you can use the 2 that cut and line up on your paper and use stencil tape or washi tape to hold if you want to be sure your layers are even. 

Once I had my zig zag strip cut I adhered together.

Next I added 3D Foam Board but cutting a strip and adhering on both sides with adhesive

Next I adhered my oval layers with sentiment to my card

Next I die cut my dragonflies and then used my stamp positioner to line up and stamped.

Next I colored the dragonflies with Copic Markers

V17, V15, V12 V01 RV19, RV17, RV13, N5, N3

Once colored I used Nuvo Aqua Gloss to add some sparkle.  

Lastly I adhered the dragonflies to my card. 

A couple of variations- 

You could add enamel dots to the oval as below.  Also I only did 2 layers of ovals.

And one more variation with a paper change:
