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.

Polar Bears Visit Santa


Hi There! Sharing a Christmas card that I made using Polar Bears Visit (Di’s Digital Stamps). I just thought this image was so adorable and helps to celebrate the magic of Christmas!

To make this card I printed the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock using Grayscale. Using grayscale prevents the image from smudging when you go to colour it. I coloured in the image with various Copic markers which are listed below and then added in the snow on the bottom of the sleigh with DecoArt Snow-Tex. I love the texture of the snow with this product. After completing everything, I mounted the image onto the background papers using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Polar Bears Visit (Di’s Digital Stamps)

Paper: Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Heidi Swapp – HS01073 – 6 x 6 in, Green cardstock

Embellishment: Jot – Pop-up Stickers

Sleigh: E35, Y38, Y35, Y21, R37, C5, C3, C1, E35, Y38, Y35, Y31

Bears: E17, E15, E13, E11

Present: G28, YG63, G21, Wink of Stella – Clear

Bow: E35, Y38, Y35, Y31

Hope you all have a magical Christmas this year!

Gingerbread Dreams!


It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Christmas. YAY!!!  This week, I used Gingerbread House (S159) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Gingerbread Dreams (E061) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To make this card I stamped the Gingerbread House image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool in order to give me a nice crisp image. I coloured in the image with a little guidance from Kit and Clowder’s Gingerbread house video created by Alyce. For the snow and candies, you can’t see it in this photo, but I used Spectrum Noir – Crystal Clear Sparkles. Once I finished colouring in the image, I fussy cut around it. I also stamped out the sentiment and fussy cut around that as well.

Next I used the Gingerbread Chain punch from Creative Memories to cut out my little gingerbread men and then used Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the icing and a dab of Copic Marker #29 for the cheeks.

For the assembly of the card, I used 6″ x 6″ AC Autumn Cardstock for the base. I had a piece of Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper from a previous project that I had worked on and layered this on top of the Gingerbread men paper from Doodlebug Design Inc. – Milk and Cookies.

Lastly I used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop up all of the images and sentiment. I added in the little red embellishments to represent the little gingerbreads dreaming of their wonderful gingerbread house. LOL!

Stamp: Gingerbread House (S159) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)
