clean & simple sunday no. 85

Today I pulled out the A|S Charming Gardeners stamp set and thought I’d play around a little bit with my Copic markers…


I started with a panel of sugar card stock and stamped the poppy image in Memento tuxedo black ink. I used YR00, YR04 and YR07 to color in the poppies. I really need to learn more about coloring with Copics since my image can certainly use some improvement, but I tried to blend the colors a little bit to add some dimension.

I stamped “Celebrate” from the special edition Eat Cake stamp set that A|S was giving to hostesses during the A|S birthday celebration earlier this year. I little strip of sage and part of a scalloped circle from my scrap bin helped to add a bit more color to this white on white card design. The little sparkles and a bit of onyx baker’s twine I’m hoping add just the right amount of shine and pattern to give the card interest.


  1. Nice job!

  3. I love this! Simple and elegant. Best yet, you make me want to leave work and go home to make some! 🙂
