Hi everyone! I did a little flower coloring with Copics Monday. Colorbook therapy! It’s been so nice here, I hope the flowers don’t come up to soon!
I started with an A2 size cardbase. Topped it with a panel of the NEW Memory Box Black Glossy Cardstock. It’s heavyweight and die cut so nice for the Happy Birthday sentiment too!
Then I die cut and glued together, three for each side, the NEW Hex Half Pinpoint die. Don’t you love how it makes the perfect base for the NEW floral dies?!
Here’s a picture of the dies I used and for the flowers and leaves I colored.
Here’s a picture of the Copic Marker colors I used.
It didn’t take a whole lot of cuts! I was surprised. After coloring, I used black and white glaze pens to add some accents.
Look at this NEW Memory Box stamp set!!! (Full picture lower in the post) It matches the font of this Happy Birthday Posh Script die and the Miss you Posh Script die on my next card! I absolutely love matching fonts for the inside of my cards! ❤
This picture I’m trying to show a little of the dimension. I didn’t use any foam mounting tape and it will still go in the mail under ¼ inch thick for one forever stamp! YAY!
My second card for today is just plain floral fun!
The Memory Box Berry Red 6×6 Paper pad came out for this card. I love having 3 shades of each color to coordinate! It sure saves time digging through cardstock to find matching pieces!
I started with an A2 size kraft cardbase. I die cut the NEW poppy Penelope Pinpoint Frame in white, glued it on. I die cut the poppy Lattice Plate in white and glued it on.
Next came the NEW super pretty poppy Flower Field Frame die cut in one of the pinks in the Berry Red 6×6 pad and glued on.
Then some Memory Box Fairy Jewels for the flower centers.
Here’s the dies I used for this card…
and here’s the NEW stamp set that matches these posh script dies! and the Berry Red 6×6 pad.
Haha! Isn’t she the cutest! Look at that snout! I added a couple more layers to it. lol
I added the eyelashes with a color pencil! I also went over the partial cuts at the ears, eyes, snout and legs with the same color pencil.
Miss piggy is just one cut and I edged her with a little gathered twigs distress ink so she wouldn’t look too clean! haha The thought did cross my mind that she’d be super cute in a mud puddle!
She’s super cute…not sure who I’ll send it to but usually when I type that as soon as I hit publish I think of someone!
Thank you all for hanging in here for this long post! I promise not to make long a habit! lol
Here’s what I used to make these cards…

Oh wow Pam!! These are splendid!! Those flowers are absolutely gorgeous!! Now you got me wanting to put away my Christmas dies and get the flowers out! haha! Your coloring is really amazing! The little piggy in all the flowers is just adorable too! 😀
Wow that first card is just gorgeous, I love the colors and the pen work with the flowers!
Beautiful! Really like colors you used. Also like the sharp end of the Happy Birthday sentiment!!!
Supposed to say ‘sharpness’ , not sharp end! Duh
Wowzers Pam …your flower card is sooooo pretty! You can always make your posts long….we love all your creations!
What a beautiful card the black behind really makes the card pop. The blue and yellow flowers are so pretty. The piggy on the card is adorable. Still winter here more snow last night so everything is white again.
Oh what great cards! That first card is stunning! It caught my eye immediately! Love the colors! Thanks so much for sharing!
This actually hurts. Ohhhh, your first card is so beautiful with all the flower dimension and color and popping on the black and white. And then your second card is utterly adorable with the piggy on lattice and the beautiful flower frame. I’m not sure which of these dies I can live without. You’re so good!
Beautiful cards, and those flowers are my FAVES! Love that scripty sentiments too
These are beautiful, as always! Love the brilliant colors over top of the black background, and that piggy is a delight! We have some friends that are pig farmers, raise about 3500 pigs/week!!! They’d get a kick out of this one! Thanks for sharing!
