Feel Good!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Having You Around – D19078 for the main image and sentiment. There’s nothing like the love between a boy and his faithful companion. They become best friends as they both grow older together!!!

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I also cut a panel the same size out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I used this to create my background using stencils I created to make clouds by Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (D-05-01) and inks listed below by Tim Holtz. Copic markers were used to colour in the water and I used My Favourite Things – Slimline Grassy Edges Stencil as a guide for the grass on the bottom of the card. Using my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink, I stamped the sentiment and then embossed the ink with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I used double-sided tape and attached my background panel to the base card.

Using my Cuttlebug and dies from Studio Light – Wonderful Autumn, I cut the trees and landscape out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Copic markers, I coloured these in as well. Then I layered them on top of each other and used glue to adhere them to the coloured background.

Next, using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured it in with Copic markers. I fussy cut around the image by hand and used a black marker to go around all of the edges. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the image and it was placed on top of the background to finish off the card.

Soccer Fun!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a masculine card using Soccer Gabriel – SS525 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Awesome & Wonderful – FR001 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Soccer has become a really big sport in North America over the last while. In Europe, they call it “Football”! We have 6 soccer fields at the end of our street in the park and before Covid, the fields were packed with both young and old from morning till night with teams competing. It looks like Gabriel is saving the day for his team today! LOL!

To make my card this week, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper folded to 4.25″ x 5.5″ for the base. I cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ and stamped the image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and created my own background.

To create the background it was fairly easy. After stamping the main image, I drew in the net using a lead pencil and ruler for the main frame and the goal line. Once I was satisfied with the look, I erased the harsh lines so that they were barely visible. I used a combination of green Copic markers and just made small circles everywhere to give the lawn some texture. I also used the chisel edge nib to cover more of the background easier. For the trees, again I used another combination of greens. I based the entire tree line with YG91 and then just drew a bunch of squiggly lines to create round and triangular shapes using the various markers listed below to give the effect of a forest. Lastly, I took a Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen and using a ruler made vertical and horizontal lines to create the netting.

To assemble the card, I applied some Tombow Multi Mono Liquid glue to the back of the coloured image and applied it to the base. I stamped out the sentiment and inked around the edges first with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn and then a black marker to make the outer lines crisp.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Soccer Gabriel – SS525 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Awesome & Wonderful – FR001 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn

Let’s Ride!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a masculine card using Skateboarder Gabriel – TT521 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Let’s Ride – FR006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. It’s always fun to see skateboarders at our local park doing their awesome tricks and showing off their amazing skills. Unfortunately, I have never had the co-ordination to stay on one. LOL! How about you?

To make my card this week, I used The Paper Studio – Primary Simply Solids (4.25″ x 5.5″) paper for the base. I cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the same size as the base and stamped the image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and created my own background. I wanted it to look like Gabriel was on his way down the ramp. Once the image was coloured, I took a little bit off of each side, so that when I glued it to the base, the base card would create a slim frame around the image.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Skateboarder Gabriel – TT521 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Let’s Ride – FR006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Reading Away The Afternoon!


Today, I’m featuring a CAS card I made using Reading Away The Afternoon – D19043  from Dreamerland Crafts.  These 2 little friends are enjoying a wonderful day just relaxing and sharing time together! There’s nothing like holding a real book in your hands. I know that today there a lot of e-books, but I’m old fashioned and still love to sit back and relax and hold onto a real book. How about yourself? Do you prefer a real book or e-books?

To make this card I used a white base card from “Studio g” of 5″ x 5″. The sentiment was stamped directly to the base using my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Reading Lexi stamp. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

The background and image were die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies. I adhered the larger die cut directly to the base using double-sided tape.

I stamped the image onto the smaller die-cut and then stamped it again on some Post-it note to create a mask. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used along with stencils I created from Avery Elle – Pierced Cloud Die. Then the grass was added in. To create texture on the grass, I used some rubbing alcohol and a piece of old rag with some ridges on it.

Once the background was completed, I coloured in the main image with Copic markers. The grass had also been coloured in with the same markers. The image was then popped up onto the base using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Dreams Take Flight!!


Today, I’m featuring a card I made using Embrace Your Dream – D19039  from Dreamerland Crafts. My dad always dreamed of flying and he would build all kinds of model airplanes. Then one day he decided to build a real plane with the assistance of his brother and a friend. It took them a long time, but in the end it was a beautiful plane and the best part was that we were all taken for rides in it. It’s an experience we will never forget. So just as my dad followed his dreams, he taught us all to follow our dreams as well. If you dream about something long enough, eventually it will become a reality for you. So never be afraid to follow your dreams.

 

To make this card I used a white base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. The background was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die Layers – MCT-D274 and my Cuttlebug. The paper is from Doodlebug Design Inc. – I Love Travel. Once die cut, the edges were inked around using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. I also used this colour to do the clouds in the sky on the image. I adhered the background to the base using glue so that I could move it around to fit better.

The sentiment was stamped using my MISTI, VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and the stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie – Sky’s The Limit. The powder was then heat embossed with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. It was die cut using My Creative Time – Sentiment Label Dies.

The image was die cut using My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The circle behind the main image was die cut with My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles MCT-D136 from black cardstock. I coloured in the entire image with Copic markers and then created a mask. I added in the clouds and used a small piece of old rag and some rubbing alcohol to create some texture in the grass.

To assemble the card, I ran the main image through Xyron Creative Station to make like a sticker and so that it would lay completely flat on the black circle. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was used to pop up the main image and sentiment to complete 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.

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.
