Get Well Soon

Get Well Soon by Susie Moore

Card Annex designer Susie Moore is back again today with another fabulous example of her Copic coloring skills on this fun get well card! The hair of her fairy absolutely glows in the sunlight. It’s hard to believe that she’s hand colored and not real!

The asymmetric piece of patterned paper on the bottom of this card pushes the eye to the left, the direction that the fairy is traveling, enhancing the visual effect that she is moving that direction. It seems to “push” her.

If the lovely My Mind’s Eye papers on this card have inspired you, be sure to come back tomorrow when we start our My Mind’s Eye feature week, which will show off cards by our designing highlighting all of their latest CHA Winter 2013 releases!

You Brighten My Day

march-1

Unconventional materials can make a card really shine! We mostly think of vinyl as being for home decor and other crafts projects, but Card Annex designer Susie Moore used it here for a sleek die cut lamp.

Combining glitter and markers to create a stain glass effect brings a lovely retro look to Susie’s card, which is enhanced by her choice of the floral patterned paper background. Highlighting the lime-y green in the design also really focuses on the retro look of the design.

Dimension is really hot in card design, and so are banners. So why not use a banner to create your dimension? Susie showed how a die cut banner, with a couple of quick crimps in it, can add some beautiful dimension to a design and highlight the sentiment at the same time.

Supplies | Patterned Paper: Crate Paper (Fourteen). Manual Dies: Spellbinders. Digital Cutting Files: Silhouette (Beautiful Lamp). Stamp: Papertrey Ink. Markers: Copic. Glitter: Elizabeth Craft (fine). Vinyl: Silhouette (black). Bling: My Mind’s Eye (My Girl).

Hey There

card annex 02-27

Today, designer Susie Moore shows us how a scrap of paper with a scene on it can become the foundation for a beautiful card!

The brown paper with the floral scene on it is from Prima’s “Engraver” collection. It’s pretty on its own, but lacks the punch to carry an entire card design. Susie stepped it up by adding some flower embellishments from the same Prima collection, to make the design 3D.

The white space in the scenic designed paper allows for the use of a large title block. To go along with the understated elegance of the paper design, a simple banner with a white logo and text is all that is needed. The contrast of the white against the black background really puts focus on the sentiment text.

Supplies | Patterned Paper: Prima (The Engraver Collection). Stamps: Paper Smooches (Sentiment Sampler), American Crafts (Amy Tangerine Aspire). Die: MFT Stamps (Fishtail Banners). Embossing Powder: WOW! (Opaque Bright White). Flowers: Prima (The Engraver Collection).

Holy Cow! Get Well Soon!

Susie Moore - Get Well Soon

This get well card will bring a smile to the recipient’s face! Designer Susie Moore used a digital stamp to pair an appropriate (and cheery!) cow with the sentiment “holy cow! get well soon!” She even added a bit of glitter (in the form of Stickles) to the angelic cow’s wings when she colored the image!

The blocks of patterned paper on the background is very simple but looks anything but plain with the bold patterns. What really makes this card is the die cut mat around the circular image block. That extra detail makes the focal point stand out from the patterned background more and enhances the fun design of the card.

Designer Susie Moore got artsy with her two tone digital stamp on this “get well” card!

The digital stamp on the card has some heavy black areas on the graphic, and Susie carried that through with the black mat and card base.

Coloring doesn’t have to look like a photograph! Susie created a somewhat artsy graphic effect for this card by coloring the graphic all one color and then carried that color through to the background pattern. Thinking outside the box can have beautiful results!

A Lollipop Girl Thank You!

Susie Moore thank you card

Designer Susie Moore added extra little details to this image made with a digital stamp that really stepped it up to the next level! Paper piecing the dress and bow added some pattern to the image. Then a touch of Stickles adds some glitter “pop!” to the dress and the lollipop.

Sometimes, even when all of your patterned papers are from the same collection (as these are) an additional element can still make them seem more coordinated. In this case, the papers are all orange but the base paper has blue in the pattern and the others don’t. Adding the blue rhinestone embellishments to the banners gave them a touch of blue to make them coordinate better with the base pattern.

Supplies | Patterned Paper: Echo Park Paper Company Love Story (So Sweet), Lily Bee Design (Double Dutch 6×6 pad). Cardstock: Papertrey Ink. Digital Stamp: By Lori Designs. Markers: Copic. Misc: Ranger Stickles, Rhinestones (unknown).

Happy Birthday!

card-annex-01-16

Designer Susie Moore is Card Annex’s resident digital stamp aficionado, and today she has made a happy and fun birthday card with one from Bugaboo Digi Stamps.

The graphic block along with the two patterned paper areas create a very nice color blocked effect, and the rhinestones add some real sparkle to the colored stars. The round buttons create a visual triangle with the third round object on the card – the balloon – and add some curves to a card whose basic lines are all straight lines, softening them.

This shade of green was extremely prevalent in the new product lines at the CHA Winter 2013 show…I think we’ll be seeing a lot of it in 2013!

Supplies | Papers: Creative Memories. Cardstock: Papertrey Ink. Markers: Copic. Image: Bugaboo Digi Stamps (Make It Snappy -Happy Birthday). Buttons: Papertrey Ink. Misc: Ranger (Glossy Accents) and rhinestones (unknown).

Vintage Girl: Be Mine

card-annex-01-08

Coordinated embellishments and paper from Authentique’s “Lovely” collection emphasize the vintage style of the image on this card by designer Susie Moore.

The adorable little girl with the Valentines is a digital image that has been colored with Copic markers – except for her dress. The dress is paper pieced with the same red dot paper used for the background of the card, to create an image that is perfectly coordinated with the other elements from the Lovely collection. This look is easy to achieve with a digital or stamped image – simply print/stamp the image again on the patterned paper and cut it out!

 

Supplies | Papers: Authentique (Lovely). Cardstock: PaperTrey Ink. Embellishment: Authentique (Lovely Bundle Pack). Dies: Spellbinders (Oval, mat).  Markers: Copic. Image:  Digi Darla (Cutie Pie).
