Happy St. Paddy’s Day!


It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share this adorable little Leprechaun who is happily sitting on his pot of gold. My grandmother was Irish and so I’ve been celebrating St. Patrick’s Day since I was a little girl. My mom decorates the entire house with Shamrocks and Leprechauns each year to celebrate the occasion. LOL!

To create this card I used Lucky’s Pot O’ Gold – P030 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Fancy St. Paddy’s – G147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

I stamped the image and then used Copic markers to colour in the image. For the rainbow, I used a circle from the My Creative Time dies as a stencil and the chisel side of the markers. Once coloured, I mounted all of the various papers and layers onto 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn.

Panda Party


Hi There! Today I’m sharing a card for my friend who absolutely LOVES Panda bears. Every year, I try to find a new panda image to make her card with and this year I used Party Like A Panda (Simon Says Stamps) to make this fun card.

I used my MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to get a nice clear image when interchanging the various stamps from this set. Then, I die cut the main image using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set. I coloured in the images with Copic Markers and then stamped the presents separately. After colouring the presents, I fussy cut around them and added them to the card. I inserted the image back into the MISTI and used Versa Fine – Onyx Black to stamp “Birthday” and Embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Next I used a small stamping block and added in the extra confetti and coloured it in to complete the background. Lastly, I mounted the image with 3M VHB 2-sided tape onto a 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hot Pink cardstock base.

It’s No Mystery!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Little Sleuth – R205 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for my main image and No Mystery – H204 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). This little sleuth has uncovered the clue to why he is so in love with his special someone. This card could be used for Valentine’s Day, Anniversary or even a birthday!

To make the background for the card, I die cut multiple squares using My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out in various brown cardstock and some white Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock.

For the brick background, I used Darice – Brick Wall Embossing Folder and then various Tim Holtz inks listed below to give the different colours for the texture.

I coloured in the main image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it and used a black marker to go around all of the edges.

I layered all of the pieces together using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop them up and then 2-sided tape to mount the final square onto the 6″ x 6″ card base.

To finish off the card, I used some brown twine and criss-crossed it to make a little bow and added in the question mark using some clear gems that I coloured with E23.

Boys Are A Gift!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I made this adorable little boy monkey holding onto his favourite teddy bear called Boy Binky Monkey – Q118 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with Boys Are A Gift – J011 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. He’s holding onto his favourite little blanket! Did you have a favourite little toy or blanket that you carried everywhere with you as a child too?

I kept this card very simple this week. I stamped the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Then I fussy cut around the image leaving a small white border. I die cut a large circle using My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles and then cut a few smaller circles from the same background paper. Finally, I popped up the image and the sentiment and add in a few gems to finish it off.

Sending Smiles!


Spring is just around the corner!

It’s Wednesday, and for today’s card I used Andreas Kitties – R202 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Sending Smiles – G276 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This cheery little girl is hoping to bring smiles to everyone she knows and hopefully put a smile on your face too. She’s already for Spring! Are you??? I know I am. LOL!

To make this card, I started out with a 6″ x 6″ card base and then mounted the background onto the card. I cut the ovals and scalloped oval using my Cuttlebug and die cut from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. The sentiment was cut out using My Creative Time – Ribbon End Dies.

For the main image, I used Copic markers to colour it all in. I fussy cut around the image and then traced around all of the edges using my black Copic marker. I edged around all of the borders of the die cuts with various Tim Holtz distress inks. I assembled the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To add the last finishing touch to the card, I added in some flowers along the side and a pearl in the centre for all of the yellow flowers.

Super Tall Cake!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps  Super Tall Cake – D19017 for the main image and Birthday Sentiments – Set 002 (DS163007) for the sentiment!  This adorable little bear made a cake for someone very special! Hmmm! I wonder who that could be. LOL!

To make the card I first die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with Craftin Desert Diva’s – Inside Scalloped Squares. Then using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the paper. I coloured in the image using Copic markers.

Next I cut out used some tape to inlay the image back into the frame that I had previously die cut to make it one piece again. I also die cut the yellow and aqua paper with the same die cut twice. Then I used the yellow to be the inlay for the aqua frame and taped it back together on the reverse. After that, I used my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black to apply the sentiment. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heated up using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

Next, I edged around the borders of both frames with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. I ran the base frame through Xyron Creative Station to make it into a sticker and so that the entire frame would lay flat. I mounted this onto 5″ x 5″ white cardstock. Then I popped up the smaller frame and image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
