Gobble Till You Wobble!!


Our American friends are celebrating Thanksgiving this week and I couldn’t resist sharing this adorable little Harvest I Gnome from KLM Digital Designs new November release. The image comes with 3 different sentiments, “Gobble ‘Til You Wobble”, which I’ve used on my card and also, “Seasons of Thanks” and “Give Thanks”.

I decided to make this card a fun easel card. I love the little gnome and the sentiment that came with it. Here is a close-up of the gnome.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.

I used Hammermill paper to create the base shape of the card 8.5″ x 4.25″. I scored the paper at 5.5″ and 8.25″.  I also, cut some Hammerill paper to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the Gnome background paper to the same size using PhotoPlay – Gnome for the Holidays Thanksgiving. I also used this same paper for the inside of the card. The oval was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Elizabeth Craft – Accordian Circle Card 769 using Pebbles – Harvest paper. The sentiment was die cut with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin ink was used to ink around all of the edges of the pieces.

The card was now ready to put together. I adhered the Gnome background paper to the Hammermill 5.5″ x 4.25″ separate piece that was cut earlier. The Pebbles – Harvest paper was attached to the inside of the card. I popped up the oval background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To finish off the card, I added a added an Action Wobble Spring, so that this little Harvest Gnome could gobble till he wobbled. LOL!

Small Seeds of Gratitude!!


Today I’m sharing  Harvest II Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) image from the November release. This adorable little Gnome comes with 3 different sentiments. One of them, I have used here. The others are “You are the Pumpkin to my pie” and “For the cutest Pumpkin in the patch”. Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends from Canada!

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the sentiment on to Recollections white paper using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers. The sentiment was inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin. I ran the coloured image and the sentiment through my Xyron Creative Station to make them into stickers and then attached both of them to some Recollections black cardstock. I used my small cutter to cut a small border around the sentiment and fussy cut the small border around the image.

The patterned background is from Echo Park – Happy Fall. I cut it to be 5.5″ x 2″ and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin. The card was now ready to assemble. I started out with a white base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I attached the patterned background directly to the base using double-sided tape. Then I glued the image onto the base. The sentiment was popped up  using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To finish off the card, I added in some Kraftin’ Kimmie – Pastel Dots.

Sharing a card I made for my October Kraftin’ Kimmie Pen Pal using It’s Turkey Day by Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! For the sentiment I used Pumpkin Kisses (Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps) and It’s Turkey Day (Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps).

 

 

I thought it would be fun to create this card as an accordian card. To achieve this, I used Elizabeth Craft Designs – Accordian Oval Card dies. I die cut several patterned papers and attached them to the AC Cardstock – Autumn base card for extra support. All of the edges were inked with Kraftin’ Kimmie – Crisp Crimson for the centre ovals, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Tempting Tangerine for everything else.

The images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured in with copic markers. Both of the sentiments were stamped with VersaMark ink and then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. The embossing powder was heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

To make this card, I started with a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the same size and then used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp all of the images. The images were all coloured in with Copic markers.

The sentiment was first stamped with Kraftin’ Kimmie – Mossy Meadows Ink using my MISTI and then again with VersaMark ink. I added some Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I added a border to the top and bottom of the card using PhotoPlay – Mad 4 Plaid Fall paper, cut at 5.5″ x .5″ each. I adhered the finished image to the base using double-sided tape. To finish off the card, I added in Kraftin’ Kimmie – Pastel Dots.

Pumpkin Kisses!!


Today I’m sharing  Pumpkin Girl (KLM Digital Designs) image from the October release. This little lady has her pumpkin all picked out for Thanksgiving. Now she can make some pumpkin pies and then carve out the pumpkin for Hallowe’en. Here in Canada, we celebrate our Thanksgiving this weekend. So Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and then fussy cut it in a few places. It was then coloured in with Copic markers. The sentiment was printed out on plain white cardstock and then I fussy cut around it, in order to spread it out. Then I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to some black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around it again.

The backgrounds were die cut with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers. The printed background was then inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin.

To assemble the card, I began with a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. The 2 background pieces were adhered to the base using double-sided tape. The image and sentiment were both popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, some Kraftin’ Kimmie – Krafty Dots were added as embellishments.

Happy Fall Y’All


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a card featuring Fall Joy – T041 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with the sweet sentiment Happy Fall Y’All – G290 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). These racoons are having a blast playing in the leaves. We used to do that too when we were little. So much fun. I love seeing all of the beautiful fall colours. Such a wonderful time of the year.

 

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layer Dies and my Cutttlebug, I die cut the main image and the background layers.

For the base card 5.25″ x 4.25″, I used The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours. The backing behind the main images is from AC Cardstock – Autumn. I attached the main image to this piece using double-sided tape. The plaid paper is from PhotoPlay – Gnome for the Holidays Thanksgiving. Once this background paper was die-cut, all of the edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin. This was then applied directly to the base with double-sided tape.

To complete the assembly, I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape on the back of the first layers and popped them up onto the bottom 2 layers. The sentiment was stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black in and I fussy cut around it. I ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then layered it onto some Orange cardstock. Then I fussy cut around it again and ran it through my Xyron as well. Then I inked around the edges with the same Tim Holtz ink I used earlier. I placed it over the main image and used 2 very small pieces of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape where it went over the edges of the main image.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Fall Joy – T041 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Happy Fall Y’All – G290 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Stuffed with Love


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Angel Bear Scarecrow – T110 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Scarecrows Stuffed – H087 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. The turkey is hiding behind the angel bear for protection from becoming captured. He doesn’t want to become someone’s Thanksgiving Dinner. The crows are shrugging their shoulders, because they are just not sure what’s going to happen! Let’s hope this little angel bear can protect him. LOL!

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 5.5″ x 5.5″. The base background was also cut at 5.5″ x 5.5″ using PhotoPlay – Mad 4 Plaid Fall paper. The added touches at the top and bottom are also from the same paper pad.

The main image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then die cut with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers. It was coloured in with Copic Markers and Sakura Glaze – Black pen was used for the eyes and nose. The layer behind the image was die cut from green cardstock using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The sentiment square was die cut using orange cardstock and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. The image and sentiment were popped up on top of the remaining layers with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and some Kraftin’ Kimmie Dots were added to finish the card off.

Go Vegan!


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Fall.  This week, I made a pop-up card using Tom’s Plea (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) who is pleading with everyone to go Vegan! Unfortunately, for Tom, I will probably still have Turkey for Thanksgiving! For me, Tofu turkey is just not as good. I’m sure he will still be able to sway quite a few people though. Actually, for years, we had ravioli and meatballs for Thanksgiving, because I used to work in the food industry creating the weekly food flyers, by the time Thanksgiving day came , I didn’t even want to hear the word “turkey”. LOL!

Hi There,

This sweet little image is from The East Wind called Super Chunky. They were offering it as part of the celebration going on at Kit and Clowder.

There is also a contest, which I will be entering the 10,000 Party – Colouring Challenge TEW on Kit and Clowder Facebook page.

Loved this image as soon as I saw it!!! Reminded me so much of my sweet little girl “Boo”.  As many of you know, I make cards for my vet for practically every occasion from “Boo” and the staff and vet love receiving them. (They’ve actually kept every card I’ve made for them and display them!!!) LOL! Does make me feel really good though! Thought this would be perfect for a Thanksgiving card this year from her, resting after a nice big meal.

I coloured this image using Spectrum Noir Markers and then added in a few shadows with PrismaColor Premier coloured pencils.
