Hoppy Easter!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a couple of images that I combined from Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Sending Love Flowers – D18002 and from their Mix and Match Set Mailbox and Wall – M18301. I thought this would make a great combo for a cheerful Easter card.

I made this card in stages. First I die-cut a 5″ x 5″ square out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Then I stamped all of the images onto Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper. Using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI, I stamped the Girl, bunnies and Bird House first. Then added the mask over top of them.

For the next stage, I stamped the wall. Then I added the mask over top of it as well.

Lastly, I stamped the foliage above the wall with Memento – Bamboo Leaves ink, removed all of the masks and then coloured in the entire image.

Once the image was coloured in, I added the sentiment and then mounted it onto the front of white cardstock cut to 5″ x 5″.

Welcome Back KLM Digital Designs Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Bunny and Butterfly Digital Stamp (KLM Digital Designs)! I fell in love with this beautiful image as soon as I saw it. I found this stamp to be so peaceful and serene and I love the sentiment that KLM Digital Designs created to go along with it.

To make the card, I printed out the image and sentiment with my HP printer using High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I found this is the best print setting so that your ink won’t smear when you start colouring. I die-cut the image with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and coloured it in using Copic markers. Next I mounted the image onto some purple cardstock and left a small border all around it. I cut the sentiment and did the same.

To complete the card, I used a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and used double-sided tape to mount the background paper from K&Company – Susan Wright – SW Botanical. I popped up the image and sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and add some Kraftin’ Kimmie Pastel Krafty Dots.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Bunny and Butterfly Digital Stamp (KLM Digital Designs)

Carrot Express!!!


It’s Wednesday, and Easter is quickly approaching. So for this week, I used Carrot Express – S055 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Canadian Easter Greetings – H139 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To put this card together, I first die-cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Next, I stamped the image with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink using my MISTI to get a nice clean image. I put the die-cut back over the image again and used it for a template to get a nice clean white border. I created a mask out of the image and used the die-cut from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean to create the sky background.

I mounted the plaid paper from Recollections – Easter Paper onto a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″and then edged around the image and card with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and embossed the sentiment using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and VersaMark.

Lastly, I popped up the image onto the card using 3M – VHB 2-sided tape and added in some Kraftin’ Kimmie Pastel Krafty Dots.

Sharing a card today that I made using Big Birthday Wishes – SC0794 (AI Art Impressions) for both the image and sentiment.

To make this card, I used my MISTI to get a nice clean stamped image using Memento – Tuxedo Black and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next I die-cut out the stamped image and background papers using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers.

I mounted the background paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe – 6″ x 6″ paper pad onto a card base of 5.5″ x 5.5″. Then, I popped up the next layer using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I mounted the main coloured image onto some Hotpink cardstock and then cut a narrow edge around it. Lastly, I popped up it up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!


Let the Shenanigans Begin

Today, I’m sharing this fun Shamrock Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) who is enjoying his lucky 4-leaf clover!  My mom’s family is part Irish and so St. Patty’s Day is always celebrated in our home. Let’s hope this little Gnome spreads some luck for everyone.

I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. Then I die cut the image with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then attached the die cut back over top of the image. This allowed me to create the background and leave a white border all around the image.

Next, I printed out both sentiments using Black ink only. I glued the background paper and ribbon onto a base of 4″ x 5.25″. I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Lucky Clover and then pasted everything onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base. Lastly, I popped up the coloured image and sentiments with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Eek! You’re How Old???


Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made for my sister-in-law whose nickname is “Kitty”. I have a lot of fun trying to come up with new creations with cats for her birthday each year. This year, I decided to use Going Catty – DP1021 (Clearly Whimsy Stamps), for my main image on the front of the card. Shown below is how it looked before I placed the die cut from Peek A Boo Poppers (YNSD219) – (#Your Next Die) over top of it.

To create the die-cut, I first used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the main image and then again to cut out the pop-out die cut using Echo Park Paper Co. – Imagine That. I then added glue all around the outside of the circle and glued the two pieces together as shown below.

I created a card base 5.5″ x 4.25″ and then mounted paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe. I popped up the circle previously cut out with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I used the sentiment from the same Whimsy Stamp Set. I embossed it using VersaMark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I cut it out using Ribbon End Dies – My Creative Time. Lastly, I edged around all of the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. Shown below is the card with the pop-up closed.

This is the front of the card with the pop-up open.

On the inside of the card, I used the image from Birthday Critters – 30-466 (Penny Black) and sentiment from
Whatnot Sentiments Set Twelve – CYNS638 (#Your Next Stamp).

All images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI.
