Crafty Meraki – Sympathy rose

For today’s card, as my Crafty Meraki post of a the week, I’ve used Colorado Craft Company as my primary focus. The stamp is called Big & Bold Sympathy Rose. The stamp is quite large, so you need to cut it to make it fit on an A2 card. I opted for an angle a bit different to what is usual for this stamp and I picked some semi-random colours to colour it up. The flower is stamped with Ink On 3’s Fadeout ink.

As the stamp itself takes up so much space, I opted to leave the card reasonably simple. Just a bit of frantage over the coloured panel, a sentiment and some enamel dots in a match colour.

The sentiment is from MFT Stamps, the Smile Maker set, and is embossed in white on dark green card stock.

Copics used: R30, YR00, R12, R43, RV34, YG61, G43, G46, BG99

Polkadoodles beary great day

I’m back to share my second Polkadoodles project with using using the clear stamps set Beary Great Day. I asked three of the stamps together and coloured it up using Copic markers and faintly coloured lines. The sentiment is from the same set.

For the card itself I used two different pattered papers from the paper pad Blushing Blooms. The first is cut to fit the card front, and the second is slightly smaller, cut at an angle at the bottom and added with foam tape for some dimension.

Copics used: E41, E42, E43, E44, RV00, RV10, RV32, W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, V91, V93, V95, YR20, YR23, E34, N0, N1, N3, N7

Blue no-lines flowers

A while ago, I coloured up this flower stamp from Inkon3 using their Fadeout ink for the no-lines effect, but I never really got around to making it into a card.

Well, now it’s done! I bought this gorgeous panel die by Lawn Fawn a week or two ago and it’s perfect! To get a bit of contrast I used blue cardstock behind it, the same colour I’ve used on the frame and small sentiment strip. The birthday die, by Simon Says Stamp, is cut out in a slightly darker cardstock. The flower is put reasonably centred on the card, but to break up the background panel somewhat I added a rectangular white panel with the blue cardstock behind it, behind a bit over half of the coloured image.
