Somebunny Loves You


Hi Dreamerland Fans!

Today I’m sharing a card that I made using a new release stamp from Dreamerland Crafts called I Believe in Love.  I decided to make this an inspirational card because I loved the way the little girl was hugging her bunny with such affection.

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool and Memento – Tuxedo Black. Then the image was coloured in with Copic markers. For the background I used Canson Watercolour Paper and first layered the grass area with multiple Tim Holtz green shades of ink listed below and then the sky with Tim Holtz blue shades of ink. Lastly, to finish the grass, I used a Rake brush and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles and some water. For the clouds in the sky, I used a cotton ball, cotton swab and some water. Lastly I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark and embossed it with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail.

Congratulations and Best Wishes


Hi There,

Sharing a card that I made for a lady at my workplace. She is going to be starting a new job and I thought it would be nice to wish her well. She was a super nice young woman and she will be missed. I wish her the best of luck!

For the front of the card, I created my own background using various Tim Holtz Ranger inks. I added a little bit of water and created a splatter background onto watercolour paper and then heat set it.

The image was from a former Kit and Clowder August 2016 Pencils monthly class using La La Land Crafts – Marci with Camera.

On the inside I created a little scene using stamps and embossing folder called Safari Friends which came free with Papercraft Essentials #145. Used Memento – Tuxedo Black and MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to stamp the images. Coloured in with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Die cuts from: PaperCrafter Today which also came free with their magazine.

Hope you like it!
