Traditional Sunflower Sympathy Card

For this sympathy card, I used a very traditional color scheme of yellows, gold, browns and greens. I colored these black ink stamped beauties in using my Copic Sketch Markers. This Sunflower Background stamp is very intricate with lots of depth and layers to color.

I simply stamped it in black on white cardstock and colored it.This is an excellent stamp to practice coloring including shading and highlighting! I think I could keep coloring and make it better and better each time.

I used the CZ Design Clean Lines Everyday stamp and die sets for the “with sympathy” phrase. I embossed it in white on brown cardstock and attached in the lower right corner of this 5″ X 7″ card.

Embossed Sunflower Birthday Card

My second card is a 5-1/2″ square card. I embossed the design using WOW! gold embossing powder on white cardstock and used a very non-traditional color scheme. I have to say this is my favorite card of all three. I LOVE how this turned out.

I used pinks and blues to color the flowers. I used Copics in E04, R11, R20, B41, B000 and We, W1, W0 to color the design.

I used the CZ Design Clean Lines Everyday stamp and die sets to create the gold embossed Happy Birthday phrase. I popped it up using dimensional foam tabs to make it stand out from the busy background.

Monochromatic Peace Card

For my third 5″ X 7″ card, I used a monochromatic color scheme using warm grays. I love how peaceful this looks. I also like that the color scheme allows the beautiful illustration to shine.

I stamped in black on white cardstock and used W0, W1, W3, W5, and W9 Copic Sketch Markers to color. I added some sequins in fall tones to the sunflowers for a bit of softness.

I used the CZ Design Clean Lines Faith stamp and die sets to create the phrase in the upper right corner.
