Splendiferous by Penny Black

GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE! It’s a cold rainy day here so staying home and coloring is real easy to do.

I’m back today with a new card and a new coloring video featuring the new Splendiferous cling stamp by Penny Black. Once again, this card will be available as a kit from Photo Scraps. If you’re interested, give Tracy a call at 410-549-5187 and she’ll be happy to take your order and mail them out to you. I had enough design paper to make 19 kits so act fast if you want one!

I was inspired by a card made by one of my Power Poppy team mates. Cindy Lawrence was my Copic certification instructor and I always find lots of good tips and information on her blog.

The image was colored using Copic markers. I just used a portion of the full image. I’ve included a coloring video to show how it was colored.

For the banners, I taped together three of the dies from the Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner Stax by My Favorite Things. After running them through my die cutter, I had a large banner frame, a smaller banner frame, and a solid banner. I stamped the image on the latter using my Misti stamping platform. I should note that the actual stamp is much larger than the banner so the resulting stamped image is only a portion of the original stamp.

To complete the card, I used a trick that comes in handy when I don’t have a solid card stock to match my color palette. I used the chisel tip of my R32 marker to apply two coats of color to the larger banner frame. I repeated the process using the G43 marker on the smaller banner frame. That way my banner frames were exact matches for the colors used in the stamped image.

I’ve included a video below to show how the banners were created and colored.

That’s all for now. I’m working one several projects at the same time, one of which is creating a video version of my Strike Up the Band class. More information on that shortly!

Thanks for stopping by!

For this month, I had three cards featuring the Blue Poppies and the Bunch of Blossoms stamps sets by Stampendous. Since I can be there with you in person, I’ve created a series of videos to show you how to color the images and instructions for completing the cards

CARD 1

To complete the card:

  • Adhere the patterned card stock to the card base.
  • The kit contains two white card stock rectangles. On the larger piece (i.e. the one WITHOUT the sentiment), color a 1/4″ border along all four sides using the B24 marker. Once complete, center and glue the smaller rectangle with the sentiment on top. This will create the blue border behind the sentiment layer.
  • Glue the combined layers to the front of the card.
  • Fussy cut the image. On the back, place foam dimensional squares. Adhere to front of card.

CARD 2

To complete the card:

  • Adhere the patterned card stock to the card base.
  • Place foam dimensional squares on the back of the image. Adhere to the larger white rectangle.
  • Adhere to front of card.

CARD 3

To complete the card:

  • Adhere the patterned card stock to the card base.
  • On the white rectangle card stock, color a 1/4″ border along all four sides using the R22 marker.
  • Place foam dimensional squares on the back of the image. Adhere to the larger rectangle. This will create the peach border behind the sentiment layer.
  • Adhere the combined layer to the front of the card.
