Reader Spotlight: Angie Blom

Good morning! It's Card Cafe Thursday and we're pleased to feature SCT friend, reader and Crop & Create teacher Angie Blom! Angie has designed for Unity Stamps for many years and is best known for her Angie Girl series. In our winter issue we featured Angie's 100th Angie Girl when she submitted this beautiful card below for our Inspiration Gallery.

If you look closely you'll even see where Angie hid "100" in the card! We asked Angie to share how she created this beautiful card and she was only too happy to offer her steps. 

"I love the clean and simple way of showcasing a stamp. By using copics and some neutral layers you can easily achieve this look.

  1. Simply stamp image onto white cardstock.
  2. I stamped this image using Memento black ink. I find for my copic markers this is the best ink to use.. do not use archival or permanent inks as they tend to ruin your markers.   
  3. Using a variety of copic markers  just start to colour your image. Adding shadowing and depth to your image.  
  4. Then using your favourite die cut to frame your stamped image. 
  5. Simply layer onto your card base with pop dots. 

I am one that just uses the same colour to add the shadows where needed. I do this by going over one part of the image with the same colour, it might take me 2 or three strokes on the same area. 

For the background I use a light blue and lightly stroke in the background colour. if you are looking for the  copic colours, I used B00 or B000 for this look." ~ Angie

    I love Angie’s stamps! The girls are fantastic, and she has so much more to choose from. If anybody is thinking about ordering from Unity- they are a great company to deal with from a customer service standpoint & they ALWAYS have great sales!
