Pop Art Card using Taylored Expressions Stamps and Spectrum Noir


Hi there! Today I’m back over at the Scrapbooks by Design blog and can’t wait to share the project I created. As usual, I let the camera roll as I crafted so make sure to watch the video tutorial to see how I made my card.

I’ve had the idea for a pop art inspired card ever since I saw the Souper Soon set at the SBD store. So, I turned on some Velvet Underground (you know, as a nod to Mr. Warhol) and got to work.

I started in Silhouette Studio and used my Silhouette Portrait to cut the kraft frame. I cut it out four times and and then adhered all the layers together using my Zig 2 Way Glue Pen. I used four layers to give the frame some extra dimension, and structure.

Next, I used the frame to trace the grid onto my white cardstock and stamped the soup can man (I doubt that’s his official name) nine times. I think a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig would have been handy for this part, but since I don’t have one, I just went with it.

Once I let the ink dry for a minute or so, I got to colouring using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I did easy and simple colouring. I wanted to keep the images flat so I did virtually no shading and I used retro tones to keep with the pop art inspiration.

I wanted to avoid letting the colours bleed, so once the coloured soups had a chance to dry, I used the same colours to fill in the background of each cell. This didn’t have to be perfect since the frame was going to hide any imperfections.

Finally, I used my Zig 2 Way glue pen again to adhere down the frame over the soup man images. To finish my card, I cut a cardbase (slightly larger than A2) and used foam tape to adhere the whole front panel onto the card. I stamped the Get well soup-er soon greeting on the inside, adhered down another soup man (the stamps come with the coordinating dies) and called it a day.


Thanks so much for dropping by today! I hope to see you back here again soon. In the meantime, make sure to check out my YouTube channel for plenty of other cardmaking tutorials and tips. Until next time,
