Miss You Cards, Thinking Of You Cards

Miss You | Simon Says Stamp

Hello, I hope your day is going well!

I have another monochrome card today, this one featuring the Poppies Background from Simon Says Stamp.  I’ve never Copic-colored on colored cardstock before so the result is not quite what I imagined, but I like it anyway!

I started by placing a piece of Honeysuckle cardstock from Concord & 9th into a Misti stamping tool.  My plan was to stamp first in Copic-friendly ink, color, and then stamp again to heat emboss, so using a stamp positioning tool was important.

After I stamped in Hero Arts Intense Black ink, I used RV23 and R35 to color.  I had hoped that I could easily blend into the colored cardstock so I didn’t have to spend too much coloring, but the lighter color I chose (RV23) didn’t quite fade into the background like I’d hoped.  In the end, I liked the look and it’s reminiscent of the blending-free coloring that Yana Smakula has been doing lately (though not as beautiful as hers!).  I used R89, a very dark red, to color in the centers of the poopies, and then went in with R37 to add a bit more depth to the R35.

I replaced the panel into the Misti and then stamped again, this time with Wow! Embossing pad. I poured white Hero Arts embossing powder over the panel and then melted it with a heat gun.

For the sentiment, I used CZ Design Miss You die from Simon Says Stamp.  I cut th sentiment three times from white cardstock and then stacked and adhered the layers together before adhering them to the shadow layer, which I cut from vellum.

To assemble the card, I adhered the sentiment with foam tape to the background which I then adhered to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you for coming by!
