Sending Hugs and Prayers


Today I’m sharing a CAS card that I made using  Cherry Blossom Bird (KLM Digital Designs).  This image from KLM Digital Designs new release comes with 2 beautiful sentiments “Sending Hugs & Prayers” and “Sending Hugs” which could be used for an Inspirational, Get Well or Sympathy Card! I think we could all use a little hug! So I’m sending you all a virtual hug today!

For this card, I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. Then I coloured it in with Copic markers. Once the colouring was completed, I traced around all of the image with a Micron 01 Fine Liner to make the flowers and leaves pop.  I created the background surrounding the flowers using Copic YR20 and YR21. Then I used a Q-Tip and mottled the background using some rubbing alcohol and just dabbing here and there. Double-side tape was used to adhere the blue cardstock to a white base card cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″. The finished image was glued onto the card base and some Kraftin’ Kimmie Enamel Dots were added to finish it off.

Speedy Recovery!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Walker Walter – TLF013 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) from the new release for the main image and Speedy Recovery Background – U004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I have an older friend in the hospital right now waiting to have an operation and I thought this little card would definitely cheer him up.

To make my card this week, I used Recollections – Cape Cod cardstock for the base card which is 4.25″ x 5.5″. I stamped both the large background image and Walter using my Misti and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.

Then I ran the background image through my Cuttlebug using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut it.

Both images were coloured using Copic Markers. I edged around the background image and card base with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around “Walker Walter” and then outlined the image with Copic Markers C3 and C1. Next, I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station and adhered it to some Black cardstock. I again used the Scan and Cut to cut around the image. I thought the border was too large, so I just manually fussy cut around the image leaving a smaller black border around it.

To complete the card, I bumped up both the background and the main image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Rainy Day Smiles


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Mary Angel – Q020 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Rainy Rainy Day – H048 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. We are in for a lot of rain in the next little while here, but Mary is well prepared for it with her adorable little boots and is ready to play in the puddles. Did you love playing in the puddles with your rain boots when you were little too?

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 6″ x 6″. I used Forever in Time – Splish Splash paper for the background as I thought it went so well with this image. The background paper is double-sided and I loved how well it went together to frame the image and sentiment. I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured the image in with Copic Markers. Once it was coloured in, I fussy cut around it and used B01 to fill in all of the white space as it matched the background paper so well. For the sentiment, I thought it would be cute to turn it into an umbrella as well. To do this, I stamped the sentiment and then drew an umbrella shape around it. I used a scrap piece of copic paper and drew the handle for it and then coloured it and cut it out as well. To finish off the card, I popped up the image and the sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added some Ranger Inkssentials – Glossy Accents onto the water and droplets, Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear to the wings, Mary’s umbrella and pockets on the raincoat. Unfortunately, the glitter isn’t showing up in the picture.

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.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE black cats and so I just had to colour this image in the darker colours! LOL! Coloured the image using Copic markers and then used PrismaColor Premier Black pencil to create the fine fur texture.

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

I decided to make this an accordian card using the dies from Elizabeth Craft  – Accordian Circle Card 769 and Elizabeth Craft – Square Frame Edges 770.

Images were stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. To colour I used my Copics and Spectrum Noir markers and then used Gamsol and Prisma Premier coloured pencils to create the shading.

I just love this stamp set. Don’t you?

 

Hillbilly Holler Get Well Card


Today, I thought I’d share a get well card that I made for my Uncle who isn’t feeling very well right now.

It’s from the Peachy Keen Hillbilly Holler Set One – SY900.

Hillbilly Holler sick bedHillbilly Holler Candle

To the left is the front of the card. On the bottom is the inside of the card.

For both cards, I stamped the images using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto special cardstock used for Copics, Spectrum Noir and Prismacolor Pencils.

Next I coloured both images in with Prismacolor Premier coloured pencils and then used some Gamsol and blending stumps to blend the colours.

Lastly, I stamped both of the sentiments from the same stamp collection.

Hope you like it!
