Pink Peonies


I made this card for another Peep of the Week challenge at Power Poppy.  This time, although I now have Power Poppy's Dynamic Duos Peonies & Tulips set (Yay!), I used the digital file for the flowers.  The background papers are from Prima's Meadow Lark paper pad, layered onto yellow cardstock with the vertical piece being punched down one side with a Martha Stewart border punch.  I die cut some pink cardstock with a Spellbinders Marvelous Squares die and added that to the centre of the card front.  I printed the peonies onto blending card, coloured them with copics, die cut them with a Spellbinders Standard Circle and layered them onto yellow cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders Scallop Circle which was then added with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment from the Dynamic Duos set directly onto the background, added some yellow ribbon and a bow.  For some reason, my pictures are coming out a little dark, but it still looks okay, I think.

Copic Colours used were:  RV52, RV55, RV66, G43, G46.

Kindness

There's another Peep of the Week challenge over at Power Poppy and this time, I have chosen once again to use the gorgeous Power Poppy Gladioli digital stamp.  The background paper comes from Victoria Park paper pad by Echo Park and the other paper is from Kaisercraft's Fine & Sunny paper pad.  Both are layered onto green cardstock with the central piece having been punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.  The image was printed onto blending card, coloured with copics and cut into a rectangle.  I then die cut some white cardstock with a Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle die and popped the image piece on top with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Power Poppy's Peonies digi set, punched out with a circle punch and layered onto green cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die, and also added with foam tape.

Copic Colours used were:  Y00, Y11, Y15, YG13, YG17.

Bouquet

I made this card for this weeks "Peep of the Week" at Power Poppy.  This time, I chose to use the gorgeous Countryside Bouquet digi image.  The background papers are from Sky's the Limit paper pad by My Mind's Eye.  I layered the aqua floral piece onto coral cardstock (which looks a little darker than the real life one in this photo) and then I layered the coral chevron piece onto white cardstock which I had punched along the bottom with a Martha Stewart border punch and wrapped aqua spot ribbon around it.  Then I die cut the coral cardstock with a Spellbinders Marvelous Squares die then some aqua cardstock with a Spellbinders Scallop Circle.  The image was printed onto blending card, coloured with copics and added to the scallop circle then popped on top of the square with foam tape.  A bow finished it off.   Not my usual choice of colours, but quite pretty, I thought.

Copic Colours used were:  BG11, BG13, R00, R01, RV00, RV02, G43, G46.

Pink Romance

It's time for another Peep of the Week challenge at Power Poppy.  This time, I have used the gorgeous Gladioli digital image created by the amazingly talented Marcella Hawley of Power Poppy.  I decided that I wanted a very romantic feel for this one so I chose my background paper from The Romantic Garden paper pad by Meg's Garden and layered it onto pinky red cardstock.  I wrapped heart shaped lace plus pink seam binding around and added a bow.  The Gladioli image was printed onto blending card, coloured with copics and die cut with a Spellbinders Classic Oval die.  I layered the image piece onto black cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders Opulent Oval die, then onto white cardstock die cut with a Spellbinders Lacey Oval and then onto the pinky red cardstock die cut with another Opulent Oval.  I added a black bling flourish for a bit of zing and it was finished.

Copic Colours used were:  R81, R85, YG61, YG63, YG67.

Train Travel

This months challenge at Scrapbook Boutique is a masculine one in colours of blue, green and dark brown.  I chose papers from Kaisercraft's Pack Your Bags Collection, layering the stripes and green papers plus one of the diecuts onto dark brown cardstock.  I added some dark brown May Arts net ribbon down one side and a strip of the ticket paper. I stamped the train image from Stamp-It's siset075 with Memento Rich Cocoa ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics, cut it into a square and layered it onto green and blue cardstock.  The sentiment is from Stamp-It's siset046 set and was also stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.  I guess this challenge is to remind us that it's nearly Father's Day, but this is a birthday card  for my wonderful Dad who actually turns 96 on Father's Day this year!!

Copic Colours used were:  YG11, YG13, YG17, B00, B02, C1, C3, C5, C7.

Riviera Review

This months "Pop Goes the World" challenge at Power Poppy takes us to the Italian Riviera.  I immediately thought...........Geraniums!!  The inspiration picture features turquoise, rusty red, buttery yellow and grassy green.  I chose my background papers from Prima's Zephyr collection paper pad and layered them onto turquoise cardstock, punching along one side of the vertical piece with a Martha Stewart border punch.  I wrapped some satin edged organza ribbon plus some rusty red seam binding around the bottom of the card front and added a bow.  The Power Poppy Geraniums were printed onto blending card, coloured with copics and die cut with a Spellbinders Marvelous Squares die.  I die cut some rusty red cardstock with the next size Marvelous Square die, added it to the card front and popped the image piece on top with foam tape.  I have to say these are not my usual colours, but I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out.

Copic Colours used were:  R22, R24, R27, YG95, YG97, E11, E13.

Peace


The latest Friday challenge at JustRite Papercraft is to use a negative die cut - i.e. the piece left after die cutting.  Well, I immediately thought of this Couture Creations die called Venetta Intricutz Sophia Collection that I bought on sale at the Brisbane Papercraft Expo in June - you die cut a flourish but the negative part looks really great.  So, I cut a rectangle of X-press It blending card, punched a short side with Martha Stewart's doily lace border punch, then placed the die on one side and cut and embossed it.  I stamped the bunch of flowers from JustRite's Black-Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with copics.  The sentiment is from JustRite's With Sympathy set.  I added a black and white check ribbon and bow, then layered the card front onto black cardstock.

Copic Colours used were:  C1, C3, C5, C7, C9.
