As you’ve noticed I am quite fond of colouring with pencils on kraft. I have yet to actually try to use them on anything else! This time I’ve coloured up a stamp from Power Poppy. The numbers were cut out using an MFT Stamps die and then coloured up with the same pencils so it would match the colour of the flower. I finished it off with the recipient’s name and a few enamel dots.
So far this year I’ve mostly been colouring up flowers. I got a gift certificate for my birthday last year at Power Poppy and it’s only now I’ve had time to sit down and colour up a few of them. Today’s card is made using one of these stamps. A little bit of experimenting with colours and keeping the card simple, as usual, is basically the recipe for this card.
The cardstock and rectangular die are both by MFT Stamps. I’ve used a sentiment from a collaboration between Hero Arts and Gina K with one of the lovely Pinkfresh inks. I’ve taken two photos again today, so here is the other one as well:
For my birthday I got loads of stamps from Power Poppy and this is one of them. I opted for a no-lines version again and colours I very rarely use and probably haven’t used together before.
The dies are by MFT Stamps and Pinkfresh.
There’s no secret that turquoise is my favourite colour. For my birthday this year I got a gift certificate for stamps at Power Poppy and I bought loads! These sunflowers in a vase is one of them. Isn’t it pretty? I layered it on the side of the panel and printed on a part of it. I think it looks pretty good on the side like this. I used a sentiment stamp from a collaboration set made by Hero Arts and Gina K Design and inked it up with ink from Altenew. The enamel dots are also from Altenew, whereas the cardstock is by MFT Stamps.
I’ve coloured up this stamp twice, in pink. The first one was using pencils (you can see the card here) and this second one is coloured up with my Copic markers. The stamp is called Saucer Magnolia and is by Power Poppy. I’ve made a pretty simple card out of it. A border die to cut the panel and then I actually used washi tape for the patterened background. Yup, washi tape! It’s wide and awesome and by Altenew. I don’t use a lot of washie tape normally, but I really love this one! To finish it off I glued it onto a pink card base so you can only see the sides of it, embossed a Mathia Design sentiment and used a few transparent dots around the text.
