Matchbook Craft Room!


Today I’m sharing a miniature Birthday card using Art ImpressionsMB Craft Room Set – 5321MB Template Dies (5317) and MB Envelope Die (5318) that I made for my Aunt’s Birthday in April. My aunt is a crafter like myself. When I first handed the card to her, she looked at me as if to say “What is this?” I started to laugh and said, “It’s your Birthday Card”. The card is the size of a matchbook. LOL! She couldn’t believe how tiny it was. I wrote the sentiment on the inside of the smaller envelope. When she opened her card, she fell in love with it and I hope that you do too! Proof that some big things do come in small packages!!!! 🙂

To create the card, I began with the card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, Cuttlebug die-cutting machine and the Art ImpressionsMB Template Dies (5317). I used this same die cut again to add the paper background for the inside of the card and adhered them together using liquid glue. From the same die set, the windows, window frames, hearts and bow were also cut out. Lastly, with the same dies, I cut out the floor using Joy Crafts – Artist Trading Card – Wood Texture paper.

With Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI, I stamped all of the images and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in all of the images and then, using the Cuttlebug again, I die cut all of the inside pop-ups using Art ImpressionsMB Craft Room Set – 5321. Lastly, I die cut the envelopes out of some scrap double-sided paper that I had in my stash using the Art ImpressionsMB Envelope Die (5318).

Double-sided tape was applied to do the assembly on the tabs and they were adhered to the base card. I wanted to create a small picture frame, so I drew one onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock, coloured it in with Copic markers and then cut around the frame. The heart was then adhered into the centre of the frame with some liquid glue. A few small gems were also added above and below the heart.

Double-side tape was applied to the flaps of the larger envelope to complete the assembly. For the small envelope, I used the little bow and a pop-dot to close it so that it could be opened easily.

Peace Dude!


Today I’m sharing an inspirational \ birthday card using KLM Digital DesignPeace Gnome from the new March release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Peace begins with a smile” and “There is peace even in the storm”. Seeing this image made me feel nostalgic for my younger days in the 60’s and 70’s. I still remember how excited I was to get my very first pair of GWG bell bottom jeans and then LEVIS. LOL! Flower power was all the rage and there were flowers and peace signs everywhere. I was still young, but it was a really cool time to grow up.

AC Cardstock – White was used to create a 6″ x 6″ card base. BasicGrey – Lauderdale Patterned paper was cut to the same size as the base card and adhered with double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Villainous Potion was used to ink around all of the edges.

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and 2 extra copies of the image were printed onto plain copy paper to be used for masking later. With my Cuttlebug, I die cut the image and the purple background layer using Quickutz Nesting Frame 7 dies. I fussy cut around the sentiment and then inked it very lightly with some purple that I had left on my blending brush. I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to a scrap piece of Recollections – Purple Passions paper. Once again, I fussy cut around the sentiment. The larger frame and sentiment edges were inked around the edges with the same ink as the base card.

The image was coloured in with Copic Markers listed below. The top portion of the image was fussy cut and I applied some Washi Tape to the back of it to create a hinge and to mask the image. Using blender brushes and multiple Tim Holtz Distress Inks, I created the clouds in the sky with Lawn Fawn Cuts – Cloudy Stencil.

Once I completed the sky, I used second image that I had printed out onto the copy paper for 2 purposes. The first purpose was to use a stylus and tracing paper to transfer the image onto the patterned paper from BasicGrey – Lauderdale Paper Pad for paper piecing the gnome’s shirt. I loved the wild flower pattern and thought it was perfect for this hippie gnome. Once the pattern was transfered, I fussy cut it out. I used my Copic markers to create a small shadow on various parts of the shirt. With a Pigma Micron 03 black marker, I drew the lines in darker so that they would stand out on the shirt and then used a black marker to go around all of the pieces. Once completed, all of the pieces were put through a Xyron Create a Sticker to make it easier to stick to them to the coloured image and also so that they would lay flat. I then added the pieces to the main image.

The printed image was then fussy cut and the sand was added using a blender brush, Krafty Kolours – Sandy Shores for the base and a mixture of Copic markers listed below.

The remainder of the card was now ready to assemble. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the sentiment, large purple frame and image. They were all then popped up onto card.

Stamp and Sentiment:  Peace Gnome – KLM Digital Designs

Oh Puck! I Forgot!


Sharing a belated birthday card that I made today using Photo-PlayO Canada 2 Beaver & Hockey and Lawn Fawn – Let’s Go Nuts for the bottom half of the sentiment. I couldn’t resist this adorable beaver and it’s sentiment when I saw it. Can you guess what hockey team he plays for? LOL!

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base. I cut the iced boards and ice to the size of 5.5″ x 1-7/8″ and coloured in the lines with copic markers using a ruler. I added a shadow where the beaver was going to be and then applied Wink of Stella – Clear onto the ice portion. I applied the rink portion to the base using double-sided tape. Echo Park Paper Co.Happy Birthday Boy paper was cut to the size of 5.5″ x 2-3/8″ and it was adhered to the card using liquid glue.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. They were coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut. Using a black marker, I inked around all of the edges. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the images and they were popped up onto the card.

Using my MISTI again and VersaMark ink, I stamped the sentiments onto Recollections – Black cardstock. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied to the ink and then heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the sentiments and they were popped up onto the card.

Birthday Message For You!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using a combination of Dreamerland Crafts stamps.  A Special Message For You – D16001 was used for the boy image and sentiment, Mailbox & Wall – Mix & Match Collection – M18301 and  Window & Gate – Mix & Match Collection – M18302 were used to create the background. I just love how these stamps came together to help me to create this scene.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 6″ x 6″. I die cut X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and dies from Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Squares – Set B. I used the square die that was about 5.75″ x 5.75″.

Next, I created a mask of each of the stamps I was going to use to create the scene. The boy was stamped first and then I placed the mask over top of him. Next was the gate, then the brick wall and the foliage.  I added the masks after stamping each piece. Lastly, I stamped the 2 windows. All masking was removed at this point.

To create the main building brick wall, I used Kraftin’ Kimmie Stencil – Brick Wall. Using my magentic mat, small magnets were used to hold the stencil down over the image. Then Copic markers were used to create the texture of the brick. Once all of the brick was done, C4 and C2 were used to fill in the spaces in between. I drew in the sidewalk using a combination of C0 – C5 markers.

After all of the main colouring was done, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch was used to stamp the sentiment. Then, because I was using my MISTI, it was easy to then re-ink the sentiment with Versamark ink and then emboss it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat up the embossing powder.

Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamp Together for the Holidays – DS19048 for my main image and Birthday 08 – DS17059 (Dreamerland Crafts) for the sentiment.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I die cut X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and die cut from Papercraft Inspirations. Then I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. The original stamp also has snowflakes. I removed them for this card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I used the same die cut to make the frame using Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. I also used the same paper for my base background colour.

I used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut Echo Park Paper Co. – Happy Birthday Girl paper and then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. Next, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI. I used Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Then I adhered this to the base of the card. Lastly, I used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop up the image and added a few pop dots from Kraftin’ Kimmie to complete the card.

I cut out at rectangle 4.25″ x 5.5″ from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper and then I used various dies and Tim Holtz inks to create the background. I have listed them below. I had die cut templates using the dies which makes it really easy to create the backgrounds.

I used Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Next, I edged around the background sentiment outer edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Peacock Feathers. I went around the main image outline with Copic Markers – B000 and YG03.

Herd It Was Your Birthday!!!


KLM Digital Designs has just released some brand new stamps this month, and today I’m sharing Woman Farmer Gnome (KLM Digital Designs)! She’s taking some time out from her chores on this beautiful sunny day to wish you a Happy Birthday.

For this card, I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Greyscale. Then I coloured it in with Copic markers and fussy cut around it. I used a  black marker to go around all of the image to hide the white paper from where I fussy cut it. I couldn’t cut out the portion between the girl and the shovel, so I used my copics to match the background that I created with the Tim Holtz inks.

For the background, I used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set die and my Cuttlebug to cut Strathmore Bristol Paper (100 lb. – 270 g/m2). Next I created some stencils from Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die and Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders. I used these stencils to create the cloudy background and the fields behind the farm girl using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I had a small scrap strip of patterned paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Down on the Farm and thought it would go perfectly with this card. I applied this to a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base from AC Cardstock – Autumn collection. I printed out the sentiment and fussy cut it to split it up and attached it on top of the base background. I then popped up the colored image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the background that I created earlier. Then I popped up the entire background onto the base card. I added in a few Party Time dots from Kraftin’ Kimmie Dots and inked around the entire card with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint to finish it off.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Woman Farmer Gnome (KLM Digital Designs)

Inks: HP Printer Greyscale, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint

Butterfly Kisses!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Bessie Buggies Bloom – S173 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Butterfly Kisses – D007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Bessie is all set for Spring and flowers blooming. I’m not very good with flowers, but my husband has a green thumb and is really good at keeping our flower garden looking beautiful every year.

To make this card I started off with a base card of 6″ x 6″. I fell in love with this background paper as it suited the sentiment and the darling little butterfly “Bessie” so well. I tried to colour Bessie’s wings and outfit to match the colours of the other butterflies in the background.

Once the image was coloured, I added some Wink of Stella – Clear to the wings. Unfortunately, it doesn’t show up in the picture. I die cut the finished image using my Cuttlebug and circle dies and then I die cut a black circle to layer it onto. I thought this made the image pop. I stamped the sentiment and also layered that onto some black cardstock. I then popped up the sentiment and the image with 3M VHB – 2 sides tape. To finish off the card, I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Bessie Buggies Bloom – S173 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Butterfly Kisses – D007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles

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.

Birthday Wishes!


Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made for my mom using Yummy Cupcake Bunny (CYNS592) (#Your Next Stamp) on the front of the card and  Rosie Rabbit Gift (CYNS542) (#Your Next Stamp) on the inside of the card.

On the inside:

To make the card I stamped the images on to Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black and my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to get a nice clean crisp image. After colouring the images, I fussy cut around them both. I then used My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies to die cut an oval out of Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe paper. I cut the remainder of the paper to be 4″ x 5.25″ and turned it over to the opposite side and mounted it onto a card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry to ink around the edges.

For the sentiments I used Versa Fine Onyx Black and VersaMark ink and then embossed both with Ranger embossing powders listed below.

To complete the card, I mounted the bunny on the front with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop it up as well as the sentiment.

Panda Party


Hi There! Today I’m sharing a card for my friend who absolutely LOVES Panda bears. Every year, I try to find a new panda image to make her card with and this year I used Party Like A Panda (Simon Says Stamps) to make this fun card.

I used my MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to get a nice clear image when interchanging the various stamps from this set. Then, I die cut the main image using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set. I coloured in the images with Copic Markers and then stamped the presents separately. After colouring the presents, I fussy cut around them and added them to the card. I inserted the image back into the MISTI and used Versa Fine – Onyx Black to stamp “Birthday” and Embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Next I used a small stamping block and added in the extra confetti and coloured it in to complete the background. Lastly, I mounted the image with 3M VHB 2-sided tape onto a 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hot Pink cardstock base.

Super Tall Cake!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps  Super Tall Cake – D19017 for the main image and Birthday Sentiments – Set 002 (DS163007) for the sentiment!  This adorable little bear made a cake for someone very special! Hmmm! I wonder who that could be. LOL!

To make the card I first die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with Craftin Desert Diva’s – Inside Scalloped Squares. Then using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the paper. I coloured in the image using Copic markers.

Next I cut out used some tape to inlay the image back into the frame that I had previously die cut to make it one piece again. I also die cut the yellow and aqua paper with the same die cut twice. Then I used the yellow to be the inlay for the aqua frame and taped it back together on the reverse. After that, I used my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black to apply the sentiment. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heated up using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

Next, I edged around the borders of both frames with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. I ran the base frame through Xyron Creative Station to make it into a sticker and so that the entire frame would lay flat. I mounted this onto 5″ x 5″ white cardstock. Then I popped up the smaller frame and image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing Dreamerland Craft Stamps Coordinating Die & Clear Stamp Package (D172906) for Character Stamp D172006 Love The Music From My Guitar and Love The Music From My Guitar – D172006! This little boy loves his guitar and all of the animals love his music.

To make his card, I stamped all of the images using my MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in all of the images using Copic markers and then used my Cuttlebug and all of the die cuts from Coordinating Die & Clear Stamp Package (D172906) for Character Stamp D172006 Love The Music From My Guitar (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps). I also die cut the sentiment at the same time and stamped it with Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then heat embossed it using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder..

I was now ready to do the background. To achieve this I cut several die cuts using Monte Mart A4 Watercolour Book paper, Lawn Cuts – Simple Stitched Hillside Borders – Lawn Fawn and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214).

For the sky I used several Tim Holtz Blue inks in various shades listed below using a stencil that I had created from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie. For the grass I used various shades of Tim Holtz green inks – (see below).

I ran all of the die cuts and the back 2 layers of grass through Xyron Creative Station. Then I set them all aside.

I was now ready to assemble my card. I layered the first 2 die cuts onto the main die cut and then popped up the bottom grass cut with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I then added on the characters that I made stickers out of for easy assembly. I popped up the upper half of the little dog with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Once the scene was completed I mounted it onto 5.25″ x 4.25″ white cardstock.

Mystery Birthday???


Hi There! Today I’m sharing a simple card that I made using the images and sentiments from It’s A Mystery (Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps). It is always hard to think of a male card, but I believe this stamp set was perfect to achieve this.

To make the card, I stamped both images and then coloured them in. Next, I fussy cut around them and then used a Black marker all around the outside of the images before adding them onto the card.

Once completed, I used VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. I heated up the embossing powder with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

Using my Cuttlebug, I cut out various sizes of the brown cardstock with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214). Then, I mounted the largest piece onto the base with 2-sided tape and popped up the other layers with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

Hello My Friend


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Dreamerland released some brand new stamps in October 2019 and today, I’m sharing Hello My Friend (D19080) from the October Character release!

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copic markers. Once it was all coloured, I fussy cut around it leaving a small white border. I then added the final touch on the pom-poms with Stickles Pink and Stickles Aqua.

I used a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ white card for my base. I then cut the patterned paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe at 5-1/4″ x 4″ , inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough and mounted it onto the white base.

For the ovals I used the die cuts from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies, to create the various layers. I used the same paper pad to cut the small oval. Miscellaneous scrap paper that I had for the second oval and white for the last oval. I popped up the first 2 ovals using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the largest oval and then mounted the large oval directly onto the base. Then, I popped up the image using the same 2 sided tape on the top oval.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Cut around the sentiment and then mounted it onto card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

All edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough before mounting onto card.

Winter Birthday Wishes!


Sharing a card that I made for my sister-in-law. I was so happy when Polkadoodles came out with this new release for Winnie Winter Celebrations.

The stamp that I used to create this card is called Birthday Gifts – Winnie Winter Celebration (Polkadoodles).

I printed out the image on Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. By using Grayscale, your image won’t smudge when you go to colour it in. I coloured the image using Copic markers and then used Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow in the sky and
Stickles – Diamond to create some texture in the snow.

For the squares die cutting, I used My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I really love the colour combos of Recollections – Northern Lights paper pad. I popped up the cut out frame and coloured image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Lastly, I die cut some snowflake borders using Snowflake Border Die (#YourNextStamp) and then just used glue on 1 half of each side of the snowflakes and then mounted them onto the paper. Lastly, I added some small purple gems into the centre of each snowflake and some larger purple perls to the top and bottom of the card to finish it off.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card with you that I made using DCS19089 – Mix and Match Clear Stamp  (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the main image and sentiment and 2018 Christmas Trees & Houses – M18312 (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the trees in the background! I thought this little bear was just so adorable, so I thought I would make him pulling his little forest friend on a little walk through the forest!

I used the centre die cut from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background – CED3049 to cut out the area I wanted to stamp my image on. I used Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI to get a nice clean image. The first step was to stamp the bear, sled and bunny. Next I used Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and stamped the 3 images again. Next, I added the masked images over top of the images that were previously stamped on the base image.

The second step was to stamp in the trees. I wanted to give the impression that some trees were further back, so I inked the tree stamp with Memento – Bamboo Leaves and stamped once and then immediately again using the same stamp. I performed this several times across the background. Once all of the trees were in place, I removed the masking and was ready to colour in my images.

Before adding snow to the sky, I stamped on the sentiment using VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I added in the snow flakes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

The colours used for each character and the trees are listed below. The final step for the main image was to add in some sparkle on the trees and snow on the ground. For the glitter on the trees I used Quickie Glue and DecoArt Glamour Dust. For the snow below the trees, sled and bear, I used VersaMark ink and WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle and touches of Stickles – Diamond.

Lastly, I die cut the background frame using Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background. I added glue to the back of the die cut and mounted it on top of Crafts Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. Then I popped up the main image in the centre using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
