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.

Vet Thank You Card


Recently our little girl (cat) Boo was very sick. The amazing staff at Robinson’s Pet Hospital managed to help save her life and make her healthy enough to come back home to us. Since then, she has been doing amazingly well. “Boo” means so much to us and we’re glad that she is back to her old self.

Here is a card that I made to thank the Vet (Dr. Emmanuel Aziz) and his terrific staff.

Vet Thank you card_300dpi

Used Cricut Design Studio and Cricut Explore to cut out the doctor and nurse are from Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge. Stamped their faces with Peachy Keen PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment. Used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen for their eyes and some pink chalk on the cheeks.

The little cat is from Local King Rubber Stamps “Kitty Love (4)” and the matching die Kitty Love (S). Coloured the kitty in with a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noir markers.

The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva’s “Tissue Time”. I re-arranged the sentiment so that it would fit on the card.

The tag is from MFT – Die-namics Pierced Fishtail Flags.

Background paper is from DCWV – The Pets Stack 6.5″ x 4.5″ printed cardstock.

Christmas Penguins – Igloo card


Hi There,

Back to share a Christmas card that I made this past weekend.

 

Christmas Penguins - Igloo            Christmas Penguins - Igloo - Close Up

The adorable penguins are from Craftin Desert Diva’s “Chill Out” stamp set. I just fell in love with these little characters.

The sentiment is also from the same set.

I stamped the little penguins with Memento Black Tuxedo ink and then coloured them in with a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noir markers.

To make the eyes shiny, I used Glossy Accents. Also, first coloured in the little tree balls and then added some coloured “Stickles”.

To make the igloo from “Go Canada”, I used Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore, black, gray cardstock and Glittered Christmas Cardstock for the white.

The tree to the right of the igloo is from Miss Kate Cuttables. I really love this little tree and with being an .svg file, I can make them all different sizes. Added some Wink of Stella – Glitter White to the snow on the tree. Unfortunately, it does show up that great in this pic.

Added some “Sookwang Be Creative” double sided tape over heavy weight white cardstock by AC Cardstock to make the snow using my Cuttlebug, embossing folder  “D’vine Swirl”. Next, I die cut the snow with Craftin Desert Diva’s “Outdoor Landscape” dies. After that, I peeled off the top layer of the tape and sprinkled DecoArt Glamour Dust onto the embossed image. I felt this gave the snow more sparkle.

The die cut border was done with my Cuttlebug and the dies from Craftin Desert Diva’s “Fancy Frame Dies”. The patterned paper is from “Home For Christmas” Paper pad 6″ x 6″ pad.

I also used this die cut on the Swirly snow base as well.

The card base is from Recollections “Frost” Card and Envelope set.

Hope you like it!

Snowman Globe


SnowGlobe Snowman1 SnowGlobe Snowman HB in 300 dpi

It’s Christmas in July!

Here is a snowman shaker card that I made.

This is a close-up.

Snoman - Closeup

To make the card, I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the snow globe from “Cricut Cartridge – Joys of the Season – #M3EAF0″.

To make the window, I merged together the large circle and a small rectangle in Cricut Design Space.

Next, I put the smaller globe on top of the merged piece and then used the slice tool.

This enabled me to cut the cardboard pieces out. I cut out 4 pieces of thin cardboard and then glued the cellophane across the top.

I had received some flowers and kept the cellophane that they used to wrap the flowers up with.

Works great for shaker cards and it cuts easily.

The snowman is from Peachy Keen Stamps –

“PK-1346 Picture Snow Day”

Sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva’s “Chill Out”

Used my Cuttlebug to cut the Snow using Craftin Desert Diva’s – “Landscape Dies” then embossed with “D’Vine Swirl”

Background paper behind snowman is from Recollections Signature – Blue Christmas 6 in x 6 in paper pad.

Snowmwan’s jacket was paperpierced from DCWV Premium Paper Pack – Assorted papers.

Card base is Recollections – Frost.

I used Spectrum Noir Pens LV1, LV2, CR4, BT1 and Blender pen to colour.

Memento – Tuxedo Black was used for sentiment and for stamping the snowman.

Thank You Card


Hi There,

Like to share a Thank You card I made for my neighbour for coming to my rescue the other day. Needed to go in for some minor day surgery and my husband just started a new job and therefore couldn’t take me. My neighbour was so good, she took me to the hospital and stayed the whole time with me. 7 hours in total if you include the drive time. I’ll be eternally grateful. It’s so nice to have great neighbours that you can depend on.

Here is the shaker card that I made for her.

Inching Along


Thought I’d share a card with you that I made from my Craftin Desert Divas Just Bugcause stamps and dies.

Inching along Front 300 dpi

I used the background paper from Patterned paper  – Kaitlin – Recollections Signature 12 x 12 Paper Pad. Love this design.

I stamped the snail twice and coloured in the base, then cut out the shell from some paper  I had mixed my Rangers Alcohol Inks on and thought it looked great for the shell.

I cut out the shell separately and placed it on top of the coloured snail. Spectrum Noire marker and Prismacolor Premier Pencils were used to colour in the snail.

Used my Cricut Explore to cut out the sun from Cricut Cartridge – Create A Critter – #M37746.

Grass – Cricut Cartridge – Ribbons & Rosettes – #M41AB5.

For the face on the sun,

I used Peachy Keen – PK490 – Everyday Character Face Assortment.

Graduation Card for my Niece


My beautiful niece graduated recently and

I wanted to make her a very unique card.

Graduate Front 300 dpi

I created the card front using her university colours.

Wine, white and blue.

For the inside, I saw something similar to this on an SVG Blog Hop and I knew I just had to make it. I missed the original blog hop, but was given a second chance during a second blog hop to purchase a previous blog hop through a donation. Long story short, I LOVED the card that I saw and decided to put my own personal touch to it.

Graduate Inside 300 dpi

With my Cricut Explore I cut out all of the following Cricut images:

Young graduate – Paper Dolls Teen Scene – S-Occssn – #M3F5E7.

Ovals – Phrases – zig zag oval label – #M3A497.

Scroll and sentiment – Wrap It Up – Congratulations – #M43331.

Palm trees – Life is a Beach – PalmTree – #M31ECE.

Sandy bottom – Life is a Beach – Palm Tree – #M33306.

Timon Hula was from the Hakuna Matata Blog hop. I uploaded the .svg file and then used my Cricut Explore to do the cutting.
The long scroll I created in Microsoft Word by inserting the image and then put in my own sentiment.

Mother’s Day Card 2015


Hi There,

Sharing a card I made for my mom this year using Craftin Desert Divas Rain or Shine stamps and Sentiments.

I used my watercolour pencils to do the background. Then I used my Cricut Explore to cut out all of the hearts, mom and red puddle.

The red puddle is supposed to represent a puddle of love. I thought the hearts went with the sentiment for raining down love.

Mother's Day 2015 300 dpi0005

Here’s a closer look of the little girl. I coloured her in with my Prismacolor Premier Pencils and then blended with Gamsol.

I used my Gelly Roll Pen 08 for the eyes.

For the blue puddle, I cut out the puddle with my Cricut Explore and then added Glossy Accents. I also paper pierced the pattern in the umbrella and added a few small hearts.

Mother's Day 2015 300 dpi0004

Lastly, I wrote this poem for my mom on the inside. Thought I’d share it with everyone.

I decided to make this an accordian card using the dies from Elizabeth Craft  – Accordian Circle Card 769 and Elizabeth Craft – Square Frame Edges 770.

Images were stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. To colour I used my Copics and Spectrum Noir markers and then used Gamsol and Prisma Premier coloured pencils to create the shading.

I just love this stamp set. Don’t you?

 

Valentine’s Card for my Hubby


“Hi There,

Liked to share the card I made for my husband this year with you.

Forever Yours

For the front of the card, I used a design that I found in “Complete Cardmaking – Making Beautiful Cards with your PC” magazine.

The original design by Nancy Malaka can be found on page 27 and is called “Forever Yours”.

I uploaded the .jpg from the CD into Cricut Design Studio for the couple and then used the “Print and Cut” feature to print the image to my printer and then Cricut Explore to cut my image for me. Love this new feature!

Next, I used my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers to colour the image. PrismaColor Premier Pencils were used for creating more contrast and shadow.

Using Cricut Design Studio, I used the following cartridges:

Background: Paper Lace II – Gears

Lettering: Cricut Alphabet

Clock: Picturesque – Clockface Circle Card Seal

Clock Hands: Gypsy Wanderings – Clock Hand

Heart design: Elegant Edges – Heart Scallop Design Label

Scalloped Rectangles – Elegant Edges – Heart Rectangle Design Label (Removed Heart with Design Studio)

The following papers were used:

Scrap paper for wood background.

Light brown for gears background and went around edges with Walnut Stain Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Greyish Blue was used for large scalloped label behind clock.

Newspaper cardstock for smaller scalloped label behind clock and went around edges with Walnut Stain Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

For the inside of the card:

Todd Valetine 2015

I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Peachy Keen stamps from PKS-04 April 2012 for the clocks and sentiments. Cutting them after they were coloured.

The faces are from PKS-1357 Sweet on You Face Assortment.

Background paper is from K&C Company Kelly Panacci designer paper, KP  Valentine.

Copics and Spectrum Noir pens to colour faces and hearts in background.

Some pink chalk to colour cheeks.

 

 

Free Snow Hugs


Free Snow Hugs

I was inspired to do this card after seeing the snowman and the sentiment from Peachy Keen Stamps.

SnowHugs

I created this card by first embossing the background using PK-1349 Woodland Birch Background stamp and Winter White embossing powder.

The 2 reindeer were from PKSC-11 November 2012 and the snowman and sentiment are from PK-1412 Snow Hugs Snowman.

The snow was made using glitter paper and the snow at the base of the reindeer hoofs is Snow-Tex. I used some glitter sprinkles for the hat and buttons.

To colour the reindeer and the snowman, I used Copic Markers and Prismacolor Premier Coloured Pencils.

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

 

Reindeer Elf Card


Hi There,

Here is a Step card that I made using the Step Die from Local King Rubber Stamps.

Then I used Peachy Keen Stamps monthly stamp set from:

PKSC-11 November 2012 to create the design.

I put in several shots here so that you could see it at different angles.

Close up ReindeerClose up Elf

I used Black Tuxedo Memento ink to stamp the images. Then coloured them in using Copic markers and Prismacolor Premier Coloured Pencils.

I used scraps of design papers that I had and used glitter paper for the snow.

Then I added a little bit of Snow-Tex at the hoofs of the reindeer.

Merry Christmas!

 

Happy Birthday Clown Card


Image

Hi There,

I’m entering this into the Peachy Keen contest for using their new June Stamp Release. I decided to make a clown Happy Birthday card. I stamped the Happy Birthday several times to create the impression that the clowns were singing “Happy Birthday”.

For this card, I used the stamps from PKSC-30 June 2014.

I used my Spectrum Markers to colour the clowns.

For Faces I used Gold Brown (GB) 4,5,6; Flesh (FS) 1,2,3,4; Tan(TN) 2,3,4. The cheeks were coloured with Coral (CR)4.

The clowns outfits were coloured using various other Spectrum marker colours. For the pompoms at the top of the clown hats, I used “FlowerSoft”.

I used my Cricut to cut out the world from the “Going Places” cartridge and surrounded the clowns around it.

I cut out various circles with my “Lifestyle Crafts L” Nested Circle cutting dies and used some coloured cardstock that I had on hand and then layered them. I then used an “Action Wobble Spring” behind the world so that you can spin the clowns.

The birthday paper background is from “Birthday Wishes Specialty Collection”.

Hope you like it!
