80th Birthday!


Hi There! Today I’m sharing a birthday card for my loving mom who turned 80 this year. It was a wonderful birthday and my husband and I managed to surprise her. She didn’t know we were coming to visit as we kept it a secret. As she was walking towards the restaurant in the parking lot, my mom and dad looked up and saw me standing there. My parents were both so shocked to see me, as I live 7 – 9 hours away from home. I also managed to surprise her again when we went back to my brother’s place for desert. I had made her a birthday cake, which everyone loved. It was a very quick visit, only for a couple of days, but I wouldn’t have missed it! After all, 80 only comes around once in a lifetime. LOL!

For the card I chose the stamp by “Sherri Baldy – My-Besties Stamps“. I stamped the image using Memento Ink, Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to get a nice crisp image. The image was then coloured in with Copic Markers and edged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Rasberry around the image frame, balloon and also the card.

I printed the sentiment out on my printer and then used my Cuttlebug and the die from My Creative Time – Stitched Large Balloons. Tied on a little bit of twine to complete the balloon. My mom loved her card and I hope that you do too!

Happy 60th Birthday!


Hi One Crazy Stamper Fans!

Hello There! My brother turned 60 this year and so I had to have some fun with his card. LOL!  I thought the background paper was perfect for his card with all those candles.

I used the stamp from High Hopes Rubber Stamps called “Birthday Bob” and coloured in the image with Copic markers. I tried to colour the candles to match the background paper.

The sentiment was created in Microsoft Word using Cooper Black font and then printed out on my printer. Then I die cut it with My Creative Time – Stitched Circle Balloon Dies using my Cuttelbug and completed the edging around the balloon with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber.

The main image and co-ordinating rectangles were all die cut with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set.

On the inside of the card I loved the sentiment:  Birthday Emergency (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Firefighter Dragon (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). My brother is also a Firefighter so I couldn’t resist the temptation! LOL!

He loved his card and I hope you do too!

Sweet Birthday Dreams


Welcome Dreamerland Fans!

Some of you may be new to my blog since Dreamerland Crafts is introducing the 2019 design team and today is my day! I was so excited to be asked to join the Dreamerland team this year.

For my card, I thought the little boy hugging his pillow with his little kitten on his back was adorable! It made me think of making a birthday card with him sleeping and dreaming about all of his wishes coming true.

Dreamerland Crafts – Birthday 08  was used to create the sentiment and  Dreamerland Crafts – ZZZ was used for the image.

 

Here is a close-up of the little boy image:

To make the card, I first die cut the image from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and die cut from Spellbinders Labels 17. Then I stamped the image onto it using my MISTI (Most Incredible Stamping Tool) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Copics were then used to colour the image. I chose a starry background to represent night time for his dreaming! This was die cut with Spellbinders Labels 17 as well and then edged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. Sentiment from Dreamerland Crafts – “ZZZ” was then stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heated with Marvy Heat Embossing Tool.

For the sentiment, I used the die cut from My Creative Time – MCT 224. Sentiment was stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heated with Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough around the border of the die cut.

Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Shabby Shutters was used for edging around the card.

Both the main image and Sentiment were popped up with  3M VHB 2-sided tape.

Dragon – Sick Day


Welcome OCS Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and so I’m happy to be posting this adorable little dragon to help put a smile on your face! I decided to make an Easel Card this week. The dragon I am using is called “Seymore’s Sick Day” by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. It was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then coloured in with Copic Markers. I then, fussy cut around the entire image.

To do the background behind the dragon, I cut out some Bristol Paper using my Cuttlebug and Lawn Fawn – Zig Zag Rectangle Stackables. Then used Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers to create the ground and shadow beneath the dragon. The clouds were done using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and I had created a stencil from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Pierced Clouds Die. Finally, I ran my little dragon through the Xyron machine and layered it on top of the background that I had created.

Close up of the Dragon:

For the sentiment I used Tail Not Waggin / Get Well Soon” by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine – Onyx Black and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder.

 

I completed card by using the Zig Zag dies again to cut out  a border around the coloured image and sentiment. Sentiment was popped up with some pop-up squares. Around the background papers, frames and sentiment I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet.

Background Paper, Recollections – Petite Floral – 12 x 12″ (30.4 x 30.4 cm) and some flowers from my collection were then used to complete the card.

To make the Easel Card I just took a 5.5″ x 12″ piece of white cardstock and then scored at 6″ and then on one of the 6″ portions at 3″. This allows the card to lay flat when mailing.

Card Recipe:

Stamps: High Hopes Tail Not Waggin / Get Well Soon K044; High Hopes Seymore’s Sick Day T058
