Simon Says Stamp - Even More Spring Flowers Birthday

Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a birthday card I created for my niece who turned 25 this month.  I used a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! - "Even more Spring Flowers" for her card this year. The sentiment is PaperTrey Ink "Signature Greetings II", retired set.

 In November some friends came and we stamped and colored all weekend.  They wanted to learn how to color with copic markers so these flowers were used as practice images.  We stamped several of each image on a sheet of X-press It cardstock and used the Brother Scan N Cut to cut them all out.

Copic Colors: RV21, RV23, RV25, G21, G24, G28, YR21, YR23
Cardstock: PTI Berry Sorbet, PTI Green Parakeet, 
PTI Pale Peony patterned paper

Taylored Expressions "Seasonal Sprig" Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Today I this year's Christmas card to share, using Taylored Expressions "Seasonal Sprig" stamp and stencil set.  I stamped the sprig first with black ink.  I used my We R Memory stamp press to position the large stamp and help create a production line for the 65 cards I sent out this year. 

The stencil really makes it so simple to color.  There are 2 full stencils one for the berries and another for the leaves.


I applied the color with blending brushes applying the lighter ink 1st filling in the image then coming back with the darker shade to add depth.  It went pretty quickly and is really a dramatic effect when you lift the stencil.

I used papers and inks from PaperTrey Ink.  Cardstock Scarlet Jewel (shown above) and Olive Twist (below).  Inks were Pure Poppy (lighter) and Scarlet Jewel (darker) for the berries and Olive Twist (lighter) and Ripe Avocado (highlight) for the leaves.


The stamp set has some great sentiments.  I chose "Let Heaven and Nature Sing" for the front. 


Inside the card I used verse Luke 2:10-11

“I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” - Luke 2: 10-11

Blessings to you this Christmas!

It was fun to color and simple to color too.  I added some stitching around the border.  The patterned paper is Stampin UP! and is perfect for her because she is really into stamping and coloring with alcohol markers. The cardstock is PTI Amethyst Allure, her favorite color, purple.
