Simple Copic Coloring and Rachel Vass Release

Hello everyone.

Today I am sharing a trio of cards I created featuring the new release by Rachel Vass. This stamp set is a digital stamp called Glorious Geometry.

Coloring digital images are my favorite. I usually color them using Copic Markers. But to be able to use the digital images on your cards you don’t have to be perfect at using coloring mediums. Sometimes simple coloring can make beautiful cards.

First Card

My first card using the rachel vass Glorious geometry stamp set

For my first card I didn’t even use the image as it was supposed to be. The beauty of digital image is that you can modify the way you like. Almost like masking off the part of the physical stamp.

On this card I only used the large cluster of floral image and quick colored them with Copics. With not much blending or shading it took me no time to color those.

I then foam mounted this image cut with the help of a pair of scissors on a black background I had created a couple of weeks ago. This background was created using the Nuvo Crackle Mousse in black on a black cardstock. The sentiment is from this same stamp set. Printed on white on black .

That finished my first card.

Second Card

Here this is how this image was supposed to be printed and used. So for my second card I kept it as is and colored with copics again. Simple coloring,nothing fancy.

For this card, I printed the sentiment in white and filled the triangle with black before printing. That’s how I got the white on black sentiment in the middle.

A lot of people ask me how I change the digital sentiment from black in white to white on black. Here I am sharing a video explaining the technique .

I cut the printed and colored panel to slightly smaller than an A2 base, matted it with black cardstock and finally foam mounted on a card base. This finishes my second card.

The Third Card

My third card is even more simpler. As I just cut out some of the flowers in the design. Just gave it a hint of color.

Then I foam mounted the flowers in an arrangement on an alcohol ink background I created a few weeks ago.

Again the sentiment is from this stamp set. Which I created in white on black, cut in a strip and added across the card.

Then the panel was added to an A2 base.

The versatility of digital stamp is endless. You don’t have to be an artist to color the images. Digital images can be resized and flipped. You can add images on top of each other or remove a part of the image.

Rachel Vass release her new stamps ever week. Her designs are one of a kind and beautifully drawn. I have been spending money on physical stamp less ever since I started using Digital Stamps.

Hopefully this will inspire you to create beautiful card like these with simple copic coloring and premade backgrounds.

Thank You Cards Featuring Beautiful Flowers 2 Stamps

Hello! Today I have three thank you cards to share with you. Here’s my project for today which consists of three cards in different shapes, sizes, and coloring techniques using the Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flower 2 Stamp and Die set. I asked my followers on Instagram if I used too much gold and 98% said no, so I went with gold and was happy with how it turned out.

The First Card

For this project I wanted to use a craft and gold combination which I think is perfect for a fall and Thanksgiving theme.

The Focal Point:

I stamped the largest stamp from the stamp set on watercolor paper with Ranger Archival in in jet black. Then I watercolored the image with Prima Watercolor palette in tropical. Blue and purple for the flowers and green, brown and yellow for the leaves. It was cut using the coordinating die. I used the whole image in this card.

The Background:

This first card measures 8 and a 1/2 by 3 and 3/4. I know it is a very tall card but it fits perfectly in any regular letter size envelope. The background is embossed using Spellbinders Embossing Folder and I rubbed Versamark Watermark Ink lightly on the raised area of the embossing. Then I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set it to melt the powder to give it a metallic look. I had to emboss the craft card stock twice aligning the pattern because this panel was too tall for the embossing folder.

The Sentiment:

The sentiment was from the same stamp set embossed with gold embossing powder on black card stock and layered on craft card stock strip.

I adhered the flower on the background with foam tapes and did the same with the sentiment. Finally I matted the gold embossed panel on a black card stock layer and attached the whole panel on the card base.

Here’s a close up look on the background. It was a lot of work but it looked amazing.

The Second Card:

This thank you card measures 6 by 6 inches but it is a gate fold card which means it opens from the middle.

The Focal Point:

For this card I stamped the same image with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored using Copic colors; reds for the flowers and greens for the leaves. I decides to cut the image in two along the middle and use it as two images. First I was thinking about making it a Christmas card so I decided to go with red, gold, and green. But instead I made a thank you card.

The background:

For this one I wanted to go with the easier route so I just used one of the leopard print foiled pattern paper. I received this pattern paper with one of the Simon Says Stamp card kit a while back which I had been saving for a special card. Looks like this was it.

The Sentiment:

I wanted these cards to look like a series, so I stuck with the same sentiment. It’s stamped and embossed in gold on a black card stock strip.

Here’s the card when slightly opened. I really loved this combination.

The Third Card:

This third thank you card is totally different. I had a leftover piece of card stock measuring 4 and 3/4 by 11 inches. I scored it widthwise at 4 and 3/4  and 9  and 1/2 to create a  square card. The remaining 1 and a 1/2 inches was used to fold a flap on top. I know this is a weird size, but I loved how it turned out.

The Focal Point:

For this one I wanted to no-line pencil color the image stamped on Antique Linen Distressed Ink. This ink is very light so you can’t see the outline after you finish coloring which is known as no-line coloring. I colored the image using different shades of red, yellow, and blue Inktense Pencils. Greens and yellows were used for the leaves. This really gives the image a fall vibe.

The Background:

Here again the background was one of the foiled-on craft chevron pattern paper from the same Simon Says Stamp card kit. If you own a chevron background stamp you can also stamp and emboss in gold to give it a similar look.

The Sentiment:

Just a simple thanks sentiment was adequate for this card because there is a lot going on.

On the closing flap I added the floral colored image, cutting the excess off the sides. I then adhered them to the chevron background.

This card doesn’t stand on it’s own unless stood on the side. Then I thought maybe I could attach the sentiment so it would be straight when I stood this card on its side.

I just love all these cards so much. Let me know what you guys think.

Birthday Card Featuring Altenew Hibiscus Bouquet Stamp

Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I posted anything. I have family visiting from back home and have been very busy entertaining them and also with work. Here’s the card that I made today using Hibiscus Bouquet stamp set from Altenew.

I love the combination of pink and gray.  Since the flower was a large image and as always I had to make a flower cluster, I didn’t want any distraction and wanted the flowers to be my main focal point.

Stamp Images:

Here I stamped these flowers in two other shades of pink. Because I love how crisp the Altenew die inks are. They are so vibrant and true to color even after it dries. So the colors I used was Rose Quartz in the first card, Puffy Heart in the second one and the darkest one, the third one is Purple Wine. The green for the leaves is Forest Glades. And last but not least the black outline is stamped using Jet Black.

Here is the picture showing all three together.

I arranged the flowers in layers with the help of foam tapes in the back. Some of the leaves are attached with just glue so that they look like they are set back a little bit to create extra interest.

I used the sentiment  from another stamp set. I stamped that in Versamark sticky ink and embossed with white fine detailed embossing powder and heat set it.

Attached some sequins in coordinating colors to each o the cards. Decorated the middle of the flower with yellow Nuvo drops.

Hibiscus Bouquet

I love how it turned out. Hope you guys like it too. Let me know in the comments below which one is your favorite? Also if you have any suggestions for color choices of this card please suggest.
