Vampire Treat!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Vampire Treat – TT022 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Happy Halloween – H232 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Hard to believe Hallowe’en is just around the corner.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I die-cut the bat background paper from Echo Park – I Love Halloween paper pad using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Black Soot and then this piece was adhered directly to the base card using double-sided tape. The same dies were used to cut the orange cardstock and the edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin. Double-sided tape was added to the back of this piece and it was added directly to the bat background paper. Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card was die cut with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and the sentiment shape was die cut with Whimsy Stamps – Quick Strips Die Set. Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber was used to ink around the sentiment shape edges.

The image and sentiment were then stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with copic markers. I stamped out the image a second time and used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut it out so that I could use it as a mask to put over the coloured image. I also die cut a 1″ circle out of Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper for the moon. I placed both masks onto the coloured image. I tore some masking tape in half vertically to create the grass pattern and then used the reverse to mask the grass while I did the sky. I saw this on a you-tube video and thought it was a cool technique. A mixture of Tim Holtz Ranger Distressed inks listed below were used to create the ground and sky. I removed all of the masks and then for the circle I used the reverse mask to section out just the circle centre and coloured in the moon with my Copic markers. To finish off the card, I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment and popped them both up on the card.

Happy Birthday MVP!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a masculine card using Touchdown Trevor – R027 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Happy Birthday MVP – G174 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Both of my brothers were All Stars when they played Football in High-School a long time ago. Sports were always a big part of our lives growing up and for a lot of our family, they still are!!!

To make my card this week, the image and sentiment were both stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to die cut the image and then I coloured it in with Copic markers. For the background, I used my Cricut Explore to die cut the football and goal post using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper with an image from 3 Birds – Life’s a A Party. Using pre-cut stencils for clouds, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush to create them. I added in the grass with a Picket Fence – Blending Brush, finger dauber and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn. Black, brown and yellow cardstock were added behind the cut-out. The sentiment was cut with my cutter and the corners were snipped off with scissors. To give it an edge, I went around the cut sentiment with Copic marker – E23.

To assemble the card, I used The Paper Studio – Primary Simply Solids (4.25″ x 5.5″) for the base. 2-sided tape was applied to the back of the coloured background image and it was attached directly to the base. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was attached to the back of the coloured image and back of sentiment and applied to the top of the card.

Rabbits Story Time!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Reading Gnome with Rabbits from the new June release. I think this image is such a peaceful scene. These little rabbits are really interested in the story about their cousin Peter Rabbit. We have a little family of wild rabbits that have adopted our backyard yard. I wonder if they’d sit close to me while I read to them. LOL!

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and copy paper using my HP Printer. Using my Cuttlebug, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut black cardstock and the image. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and I created the cloud background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Salty Ocean, Broken China, Tumbled Glass with a mixture of cloud stencils I created using Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie. I had used my Brother Scan and Cut to create the mask to put over the image while I created the clouds.

To assemble the card, I used Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes cardstock (5.5″ x 4.25″) for the base. Using double-sided tape, I attached the coloured image and black layer to the base card.

Seas The Day!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Boating Gnome from the new June release. This stamp comes with 2 other sentiments, “It’s a boat time” and “You float my boat”. There’s nothing like getting up early in the morning and rowing a boat along a shore seeing the wildlife when you go camping. It’s so peaceful and serene.

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and copy paper using my HP Printer. Using my Cuttlebug, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut red, blue cardstock and the image. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and I created the cloud background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Salty Ocean, Broken China, Tumbled Glass with a mixture of cloud stencils I created using Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie. I had used my Brother Scan and Cut to create the mask to put over the image while I created the clouds.

To assemble the card, I used Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes cardstock (5.5″ x 4.25″) for the base. I attached the coloured image to the blue layer using double-sided tape. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to backs of the red and blue rectangles and attached directly to the base.

Elf Christmas


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring Munchin Melvin Elf – M023 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) who just isn’t able to resist the delicious Gingerbread cookie, paired with the sentiment Have Your Elf – H094 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).

I remember my mom baking little Gingerbread men every year when we were little and she even let us decorate some on our own. It was always so much fun! Then it was even more fun when we were aloud to eat them. Yum! Yum!

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image leaving a small white border. For the sentiment, I stamped it out using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed it using Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was heat set using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Next, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Cracked Pistachio ink was used to colour the white paper to match the edging around the base of the card.

For the base card I started out with white cardstock folded in half to create a 6″ x 6″ card. The elf background from Doodlebug – Christmas Magic was cut to the same size as the base and adhered to it using double-sided tape. For the inside paper, Doodlebug – Christmas Magic paper was used again. Using my Cuttlebug and Creative Expressions Festive Collection – Gingerbread Man die I cut the centre piece out. I used the same die to cut out the red border as well. Then I die cut one more piece using just the large border for the white glitter background. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was chosen to do this with.

To assemble the remainder of the card. I first taped the centre piece to the main red piece at the back. This was then glued to the white glitter background. The frame, main image and sentiment were added using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To complete the card, I used some embellishments from Dress It Up – Holiday Collection and Carta Bella – Santa’s Workshop.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Munchin Melvin Elf – M023 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Have Your Elf – H094 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Cracked Pistachio, Versa Fine – Onyx Black

Three Kings Bringing Joy


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring the adorable image Three Kings – T201 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with the sentiment Joy To The World – GLL012 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).  Have you started your Christmas cards yet?

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and then used a black marker to go around all of the edges. For the sentiment, I stamped it out and then used My Creative Time: Fun Vertical Greetings to die cut it.

For the base card I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to create my background at 5.5″ x 4.25″ and also the base card.  I used various Tim Holtz inks listed below to create the night sky and earth at the bottom. After the basic blending was done, I layered Kraftin’ Kimmie – Twinkle Little Stars stencil over top of the base and applied Stampin Up – Whisper White using a sponge dauber. I removed the stencil and cleaned it off. Then placed it on top again. This time, I used a sponge dauber and FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint to give the stars some sparkle. Note: A little dab of this paint goes a long way. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to help speed up the drying process.

Once the paint was all dry, the card was ready to be assembled. I cropped the background to 5.25″ x 4″ and placed it directly onto the base. Then the main image and sentiment were added using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Three Kings – T201 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Joy To The World – GLL012 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Happy Birthday Gnome


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Balloon Gnome – SLF016 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Mini Sentiment Set #1 – HLL001 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment from the new release this month. The mini sentiment comes with 3 more sayings as well, which means you can use this little gnome to make a variety of different cards for multiple occasions. I chose to make a birthday card this time.

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card sized at 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then I used Doodlebug Design Inc. – Fairy Tales paper to create my background rectangles. To do this, I used my Cuttlebug and die cuts from My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers to ink around the edges of the frames. I layered the first 2 layers directly onto the base and also glued the 2 smaller rectangles together. Then I popped up the smaller rectangles with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and then coloured it in with Copic markers. Once completed, I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image. Then I popped up the image with the 3M VHB – 2 sided tape as well.

To finish the card off, I added some bling using Kraftin Kimmie – Summer Dots,  Kraftin Kimmie – Festive Dots and CC Designs – Dragon Dreams Enamel Dots.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Balloon Gnome – SLF016 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Mini Sentiment Set #1 – HLL001 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)
