Witchy Poo Hallowe’en


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Hallowe’en.  This week, I used Witchy Poo with Kitty S145 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and decided she would make a great bookmark. Witchy Poo is all dressed up in her finest and ready for all of the little trick or treaters coming to visit. Kitty wasn’t overly excited but he’ll be participating too! LOL!

I decided to make it a spooky night sky for the background and added in stars with some Glitter Ink and Hologaphic Embossing. I also drew in the moon and clouds.

Lastly, to finish it off, I used some rub-ons that I had in my craft stash.

Meowy Christmas


Sharing a card made from Too Cute By Jessica – Christmas Animals SVG Cuts designed by Jesssica Owens 2014.

Here is a close-up of the image.

xmascat-cu

Using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space, I uploaded the images and then cut the pieces out for the cat and wreath.

I decided to add some layers to the wreath using Martha Stuart branch punch and then adding some Xmas Red stickles to make some holly.

For the eyes, I used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.  I drew in some eyelashes with Pigma Micron 01 black marker, but you can’t really see them. Thought it would be a cool idea to use black thread for the whiskers to show up.

Sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail.

Stamp used is from Jaded Blossom Stamps – Meow and Forever.

Die cuts are from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies.

Embossing folder used – Swiss Dots was then used on the scalloped die cut and on oval – Christmas Ornaments on Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper – 8.5 x 11″.

Background paper is from American Crafts – Holiday – 6 x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) paper pack.

Super Chunky – The East Wind Card


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.

The following stamps:

Lamp post and sign, ghost, mummy, little spiders and “Trick or Treat” sentiment are all from “My Creative Time – Too Cute to Spook” Stamp and Die set.

Coloured in the mummy’s face with PrismaColor Premier pencils and the used Gamsol for shading. On the pumpkins and “Boo” title, I outlined everything with chalk.

Happy Easter to the Vet From Boo


Happy Easter Everyone!

Here is the latest card that I made for the vet from

our black cat Boo for this year.

Boo Easter 2015 front

The digi stamp is free from Sliekje’s digi stamps. (http://sliekje.blogspot.ca/).

Thanks for sharing Sliekje. Love your designs.

The little rabbits are from my new stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas (www.craftindesertdivas.com) Hunny Bunny stamp set. I just love it.

I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp the little bunnies and the sentiment. Next I drew in the inside of the rabbit ears, face, hands, feet and tail with my Micron 05 Black pen. I used my copics to colour the background for the sentiment.

I used We R memory keepers Quickutz Nesting Frame 7 dies to cut the layers of coloured paper using my Cuttlebug.

Inside the card:

I used the same stamp set for the bunny in the basket and the sentiment. I coloured in the bunny, eggs, basket, etc. with my Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. Finished off the highlights with my PrismaColor Premier coloured pencils and Gamsol.

 

Boo’s Valentine Card


This was Boo’s Valentine card to the vet this year. I make cards for all occasions for her vet.

This is a little late getting posted, but I thought I would share it with you anyways.

To make this easel card, I used my Cricut Explore to cut the heart out of the cardstock and the really adorable cat from Miss Kate Cuttables.

The cat was a free svg download from http://www.misskatecuttables.com/.

It can be found here: http://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/animals-pets/freebie-of-the-day-cute-valentine-kitty.php

I altered the pattern to give my cat pink paw pads and a tail that was all black.

The sentiment is from Peachy Keen stamps PKS-13 January 2103.

Then I added a little bit of glitter with my Atyou Spica coloured pens.

For the silver around the picture and the frame, I used Pilot Silver Marker Medium Point.

The background red paper pattern is from some scrap paper that I had and the main card is from Recollections Christmas card collection.

Happy Hallowe’en 2014


Halloween 2014 Front Halloween 2014 Inside

Hi There,

Here is my latest addition for a Hallowe’en card to the vet this year from “Boo” our black cat.

To make the card I used orange cardstock. I then layered the front with some paper from Doodlebug Design Inc. Hallowe’en Parade.

Used my Cuttlebug and Nesting circle cutting die to cut a hole through the front of the card. I used a smaller circle die and some yellow cardstock to make the moon on the inside of the card.

I used Mememto ink to stamp the pumpkin using a stamp from PKSC-09_September 2012. Then I used copic markers to colour and outline the stamp. For the face I used PKSC-22_October 2013.

Next I used just the face portion of the cat from PK-1333 Faceless Puppy and Faceless Kitten and the kitten face that also came with the stamp. Coloured in the stamp using Spectrum Noir markers.

The ghosts were made using PK-131 Happy Haunting Ghosts.

PK and PKSC are all stamps from Peach Keen Stamps.

Lastly, I added a few embellishments to finish off the card.

Happy Hallowe’en everyone!

Happy Bird-ay Canada!


Canada Day 2014Ft Canada Day 2014In

Hi There,

Happy Canada Day everyone! Here is “Boo’s” new card for the vet this year. For those of you who don’t know her, “Boo” is our black cat. We met Boo about 4 years ago, fell in love with her and brought her home to live with us. She was 6.5 years old. She was a rescue cat and because here name was Boo, I thought it would be fun to make a card for Hallowe’en from her. The vet and staff loved it and I’ve been making cards for the vet for every occasion from her since. Hope you like this one!
