Birthday Girl – Fearless!


Hello There! Sharing a card with you today that I made for a very special co-worker who works non-stop to please everyone in our office as she manages everything from booking flights, creating Purchase Orders, setting up meetings, etc. The list goes on forever. She goes above and beyond her position and we all love her dearly for it. She takes our cubicles apart and rebuilds them all when the need arises or adds in new cubicles for new hires, decorated all of the offices for management and at times you can even see her up on a ladder fixes ceiling tiles or changing lightbulbs. LOL!

So for this year, I just had to make birthday card featuring the stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie called “Fearless Farah“. I used both the image and sentiment from this collection. The sentiment couldn’t have described her any better. LOL!

To create the texture for the brick wall, I ran the Darice – Brick Wall embossing folder through my Cuttlebug using Bristol paper. Then ran Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge across the top of the paper. Next I used a watercolour brush and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tea Dye, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge to create the texture.

To make the sign I first embossed the sentiment and then used Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames die to cut it out. Edged around with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wild Honey.

Get Well Gopher!


Welcome OCS Fans!

Today is Wednesday and I’m back to share this adorable little gopher nurse in a tea cup to cheer up your friend, who isn’t feeling so great right now from the new Get Well Soon collection. The stamp I’m featuring is called Gopher Tea Nurse (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and the sentiment is Think Happy (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)!

I die cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders – Labels 10. Using my MISTI, I stamped the image with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Next I coloured in the image with a mixture of Copic markers and PrismaColor Pencils. To get the crisp white edge around the image, I repositioned the cut out image back into the die cut and then taped the back to keep it in position. Then I coloured in my background around the image. Once completed, I removed the tape from the back of the die.

I die cut a second frame from the same die cut set (Spellbinders – Labels 10) and then edged around it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough using a dauber. Next, I put the die cut into Cuttlebug – Snow Dots embossing folder and ran it through the Cuttlebug again. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then embossed it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Next, I die cut the sentiment with My Creative Time – Sentiment Label Dies and edged around the die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough using a dauber. To complete the project, I edged around the remainder of the card with the same Tim Holtz ink.

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!
