Sunflowers Thinking of You Card

Here is my latest creation.....

It is for a new challenge blog I joined - The Outlawz Challenges. There is a group called the creative freebie challenge where they give you two digital stamps and you must make something out of at least one of them.
So I have digitally stamped the sunflowers by Sandi Huggett on to X-Press It paper, then coloured with Copics (mostly from LimeTart).
I used:

  • leaves: YG03, YG63, YG67
  • sunflowers: Y02, YR07, Y28, E37
  • background: B000
I also used a black Copic Multi liner to add detail to the flower centres.
The coloured sunflowers were fussy cut and adhered to the card with pop dots.
I also coloured a piece of ribbon (Celebrate, Spotlight) with YR07 and some self adhesive rhinestones (KaiserCraft) with YG67.

As the ribbon extended to the inside of the card, I have covered the ends with a piece of green check patterned origami paper (Daiso).

Thinking of you (Hero Arts, Clear Design Thinking of You Messages) is stamped with VersaMark Watermark ink (Tsukineko), sprinkled with Zing! black glitter finish embossing powder (American Crafts Brand) and then heat embossed - yes, this is the first time that I have heat embossed something! It was fun!!!

The card is blank inside, other than the green gingham paper and a white envelope is included. Both card and envelope from Envelope Solutions.

This card will be linked up to The Outlawz Challenges blog and will be available for sale in my Etsy shop: JemLou Productions. Click here for the link.

Thanks for looking!

Water Can Marci Card - choose your sentiment

Here is a new card I put together using Watercan Marci (La-La Land Crafts), some free paper from Australian Papercraft Essentials and an orange daisy flower made from a die-cut and my new die-cutting/embossing toy!

I digitally printed Marci with Watering Can onto X-Press It blending paper (Lime Tart) and coloured her with the following Copics pens (mostly from Lime Tart):
  • skin: E000, E00, E11, lipstick Spica pen
  • hair: E50, E51, E53, E11
  • dress: RV10, RV13, RV14, RV17, Y11, Y15, Y17
  • boots: YG11, YG13, YG17, white Opaque pen
  • watering can: YG11, YG13, YG17
  • hat: Y11, Y15, Y17
  • flower on hat: RV10, RV13, RV14, RV17, Y15, Y17, clear Spica pen
  • background: B000
The daisy flower is die cut from some orange card stock I think is from DCWV.

Inspiration for the card came from the Australian Simply Cards magazine.

The card is a square white card and it comes with a white square envelope (both from Envelope Solutions).
The card does not have a sentiment as yet, but I think I will add it to my Choose your sentiment card series. Suitable sentiments could include "Happy Birthday", "Have a happy day", "Hello"......the list goes on! :)

This card will also be displayed in the La-La Land Crafts Customer Gallery and will be for sale in my Etsy shop: JemLou Productions. Link to follow.
