Beautiful Day!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Winter Kitty – SDG006  for the main image and Beautiful Day – FDG013 for the sentiment. We just had a major snowfall over the last few days and this little kitty is all bundled up and ready to play!

Growing up we had a lot of snow during the winter and couldn’t wait to put on our mitts and snow boots and go out to play. We had huge snow banks in the schoolyard across the street and would toboggan down them or just slide down in our snow suits! LOL! It was sooooo much fun! Sometimes we even made big snow forts in the backyard with tables and chairs made out of ice and snow. We hardly spent anytime indoors and didn’t usually go back into the house until we had to or we were turning blue because it was so cold out, but even then we still wanted to continue playing outdoors. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I used Scrapbook.com – Rainbow Smooth Cardstock for the main background paper. It was already the same size as the base, so no cutting had to be done. To get more use out of the same paper, I had cut the oval frame using my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals first. Then, I placed the Rainbow cardstock onto the card base using double-sized tape. I die cut the square background using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and Pebbles – Winter Wonderland paper and the rectangle to the size of 4″ x 4″. The rectangle was cut from from the same paper pack to the size of 1.25″ x 4″. I inked around the edges of both shapes with a sponge dauber and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. Using double-sided tape, I placed both shapes over the pink background and hid where I cut the oval with the square. I cut out a smaller oval using the same Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I also cut out a 1.5″ circle using a circle punch. Lastly, I die cut the scalloped circle using WeR Memory Keepers – Quickutz Nesting Scallops dies and Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock oval and the sentiment onto the circle. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear to the bottom of the oval and applied WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter. I heat embossed this and added more embossing powder several times to create a thicker layer with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Then I added some Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and heat embossed it as well to puff it up. Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen was used to create the snow in the sky. Sakura Glaze – Black and Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen were used on the eyes and nose of the cat.

I inked around the edges of the large pink oval and the circle with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. I applied the coloured image directly to the pink oval and the sentiment circle to the scalloped circle using some liquid glue. Both shapes were then popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape. To completed the card and add in some extra sparkle, I applied some YNS Gumdrops – Winter Wonderland to the background patterned paper.

Good Times!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Bird Song – TDG016  for the main image and Good Times – FDG014 for the sentiment. These little birdie friends know how to whistle a tune. Unfortunately, I myself never mastered how to whistle! I’ve tried over the years, but just can’t seem to do it. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I used Scrapbook.com – Brights Smooth Cardstock for the background paper. This paper is great because it’s already cut to size which makes it so easy. I applied it to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Your Next Die – Stitched Frame Snowfall Hill die set, I die cut the centre piece from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the frame from Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and the sentiment onto Recollections – White cardstock. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some Stickles – Diamond and Stickles – Waterfall to the parts of the snow to make it sparkly. Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen was used to create the snow in the sky. To make the eyes stand out a little more, I used Sakura Glaze – Black and then added a white dot using Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen. Once the stickles were dry, I turned the coloured image and frame over and taped them together on the back with some Scotch tape to keep the 2 pieces together. U-line double-sided tape was then applied and I turned it over again and popped it up onto the card. The sentiment was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider. I inked around the edges with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, added U-Line double-sided tape to the top half of the sentiment and added it on top of the image. Lastly I added some YNS Gumdrops – White Sugar and Sparkle to complete the card.

*******************************************************

Thank you KLM Designs for sponsoring us. Today, I’m sharing a card I made using KLM Designs –  Owl and Sentiments. I really love your adorable images and working with them.

The base was created with AC Cardstock – White cut and folded to the size of 6″ x 6″. I cut the background paper from My Mind’s Eye – Hootenanny designer paper to be the same size as the background and applied it to the base using double-sided tape. From the same paper pack, I cut a piece of the designer paper to the size of 6″ x 1″ and glued this on top of the background at the bottom of the card. I cut a piece of Recollections – Brown cardstock to the size of 6″ x 5/8″ and applied that above the wording on the bottom of the card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge was used to ink around all of the edges of the card.

The image and sentiment were both imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it and the sentiment. I applied Sakura Glaze – Black to the eyes and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen for the highlights. With a FolkArt 1837 – Perfect Liner #1 and Copic Opaque White I added in some white onto the wings. I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station and the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied them to Recollections – Brown cardstock and Recollections – Black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around the 2 again. I popped them up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape to complete the card.

Christmas Caroling!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19090 and Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19092. These little woodland creatures are enjoying the miracle of Christmas with some caroling.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die-cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and stamped the images using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the images with Copic markers and added some decorations onto the tree using Nuvo Crystal Drops – Dandelion Yellow, Red Berry and Caribbean Ocean. To add some glitter to the snow, I applied Stickles – Diamond and for the snow in the sky, I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. The sentiment and music symbols were added using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Your Next Die – Stitched Frame Snowfall Hill was used to die cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold. Using glue, I adhered the background frame and coloured image to the base.

Hello Winter!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas CAS card using Penguin Tag – SDG003 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Hello Winter – FDG007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Winter is now here and these little penguins couldn’t wait to start enjoying it.

I’d like to take this time to also wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I cut the background paper from Craft Consortium – Polar Playtime to be the same and attached it directly to the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry was used to ink around the outside of the card. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and the little berries with a Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Gold. I used Sakura Glaze – Black and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen was used for the eyes and little dots on the hat.) Clear – Wink of Stella was applied over top of the candy canes and candy cane border. Once this was all complete, I fussy cut around the image and then coloured in around it with Copic B01. I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station and attached it to some Hot Pink cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around the image and then popped it up on to the card using U-Line double-sided tape. Lastly, Gelly Roll Sparkle Pen was applied to the little blue snowflakes and dots on the background paper to finish off the card.

Surprise Gnome!!


Sharing a birthday card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Surprise Gnome from the new December release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Let’s Celebrate!” and “Let’s party”.

I created the base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the paper and folded it to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the background paper to be the same size as the background using Echo Park – It’s Your Birthday paper and glued it to the front of the base card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was used to ink around the edges. I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. Using scissors, I fussy cut around the coloured image and sentiment. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker.  I attached this to some Aqua cardstock and fussy cut around it again. U-Line double sided tape was applied to the backs of the image and the sentiment and they were popped up onto the card. I tied some black thread to some balloon brads and then popped them up onto the card using double-sided tape.

Grocery Gnomes!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Grocery Gnome – Boy and Grocery Gnome – Girl from the new December release. I love these images as they are great for creating a card for our unspoken heroes who serve us everyday at the grocery stores.

I created the base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the paper to the size of 5.5″ x 8.5″. Then I scored each side at 2-1/8″ each and folded them towards the centre. I die cut Photo-Play Autumn Greetings – Fruit Baskets paper using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. This die cuts the paper to exactly 5.5″ x 4.25″. I then cut this piece into 2 using my cutter to create 2 equal pieces of 2-1/8″. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint was used to ink around the edges of the 2 pieces. I applied these directly to the 2 front panels using liquid glue. I wanted to be able to keep the fronts closed, so I used my Cuttlebug and Pink Fresh Dies – Slim Stripes to die cut some green cardstock. I applied 1 longer piece to the left side at the top, 1 long piece to the bottom on the right side using liquid glue. Then I added a stripe on the remaining sides top and bottom with liquid glue to the length of 2-1/8″. On the inside of the card, I applied some 1/8″ tape to a small piece of the green stripes, cut at .5″ x .5″. This allows the longer flaps to slide into them to keep the card closed.

I imported the images and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The images were coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut with scissors. U-Line double sided tape was applied to the backs of the images and they were popped up onto the card. Finally to finish it off, I applied small embellishments from Dress My Craft – Fruit Salad Slices with liquid glue across the top of the card.

The sentiment was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint was used to ink around the edges and double-sided tape was used to adhere it to the inside of the card.

Owl Christmas!!


Sharing a Christmas card I made today using Gerda Steiner DesignsOwl I Want For Christmas. THANK YOU SO MUCH Gerda Steiner for giving me the opportunity to win this super adorable stamp from playing your amazing Advent Calendar this year. This was one of the prizes for door #7. I couldn’t wait to create this card with it.

To make the card, I created the base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut Creative Memories – Glacier Designer Paper to be the same size as the base and adhered it to the card using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire was used to ink around all of the edges of the card. The image was imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Cuttlebug and dies from Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Holly Lattice Frame, I die cut the printed image and also golden background frame using Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold paper.

I coloured in the image with Copic markers and also added in the tree trunk. Using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, I added snow to the sky, along the branches of the tree and on top of the pine cones. Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff combined with WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle were added to the hat and pompom and then heated with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to make it puff up. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to backs of the image and the gold die cut and both were popped up onto the background. Finally, I added some Stickles – Diamond over top of the snow I created on the tree trunk and pine cones.

For the sentiment, I used a Recollections 1″ circle punch to cut some green cardstock and then using my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment from Penguin Party – Lawn Fawn with VersaFine ink. I added Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and heat embossed it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I inked around the edges of the circle with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles. This was popped up with U-Line double-sided tape and I added the embellishment from Recollections – Snowflake Specialty Polyester Glitter. To create the pine cone and pine needles, I used some scraps of brown and green paper and using my Cuttlebug, I die cut the shapes using Sizzix – Tim Holtz – Festive Greens 662425. I used glue to adhere the pieces together and then popped up the completed piece onto the card using U-Line double sided tape.

Today, I’m featuring this adorable image from Sweet Sentiment called Cake is Life. Thank you Sweet Sentiment for sponsoring us and having such amazing fun designs to choose from. I am a huge fan of your stamps.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. For the background, I cut some yellow cardstock to be the same size as the base card and adhered it with double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die cut Echo Park Paper Co. – Happy Birthday Boy paper and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire. This was adhered directly to the yellow background using double-sided tape.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and fussy cut around it. I ran the coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station and applied it to some matching Echo Park Paper Co. – Happy Birthday Boy cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around it. This time, I popped the image onto the background using U-Line double-sided tape.

I stamped out the sentiment onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper, fussy cut around it and popped it up onto the base of the card using U-Line double-sided tape.

Thank you KLM Designs for sponsoring us. Today, I’m sharing a card I made using a combination of KLM Designs –  Owl and Sentiments and RoadSign Gnome. I really love your adorable images and working with them.

To make this card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies were used to die cut the image and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers were used to cut the black frame. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. Then I printed out the images again and fussy cut them to create masks. I applied them over top of the coloured images and applied the clouds in the background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and cloud stencils I had created from Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (D-05-01).  The base was created with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock cut and folded to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I attached the black cardstock and completed image to the base using double-sided tape.

Christmas Wreath!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Wreath – TDG012 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Merry Christmas – FDG008 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. We love to decorate our home with Christmas wreaths outside and on our door! Do you decorate with Christmas wreaths too?

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5″ x 5″. I die cut Recollections – Burgundy to be the same size as the base and adhered it to the card using double-sided tape. DCWV – Holiday Cheer was cut to the size of 4.75″ x 4.75″ and a Sharpie – Medium Point Gold Water based paint was used to go around all of the edges. This was adhered to the base background using liquid glue. I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with my Cuttlebug and Crafting Desert Diva’s – Stitched in Circle Dies. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the die cut and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and coloured in some of the berries with a Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Gold. A Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen was used to add the little white dots on all of the red berries. Once the image was coloured in, I used the Sharpie – Medium Point Gold Water based paint to go around the scalloped part of the circle. I cut around the sentiment to the size of 1.25 x 2-1/8″ and then used a corner punch. Once again, I went around the edges with a Sharpie – Medium Point Gold Water based paint pen. I adhered the the finished image and sentiment to the base card using U-Line double-sided tape. Lastly, I applied Nuvo Crystal Drops – Autumn Red to complete the card.

Santa Candy Cane


Today, I’m featuring this adorable Santa image from Conie Fong Art called Holiday Gnomes Bundle By Conie Fong.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 5.5″. For the background, I cut Craft Smith – Peppermint Twist paper to the same size as the base card and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Candied Apple. I adhered this to the base card with double-sided tape. AC – Green cardstock was die cut with my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint was used to ink around all of the edges and it was popped up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape.

The image using HP High Quality Grayscale was printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter were added to the brim of the hat and pompom. Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear was added in parts at the bottom for snow and WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter was applied. The hat, pompom and snow were all then heat embossed using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Stickles – Crystal was also added to the snow to add a little more sparkle. Lastly, using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, I added snow to the background sky.

Dress Up The Christmas Tree!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19090.  These little woodland creatures are enjoying their new tree on a snowy evening. Do you have an outdoor Christmas tree?

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die-cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. Your Next Die – Stiched Frame Snowfall Hill was used to die cut Creative Memories – Glacier Designer Paper Pack for the snow frame and glued to the base background. With My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I also die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock to the size of 4.5″ x 3.25″.

I stamped the image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I coloured in the image with Copic Markers. The sentiment was added using Versamark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heated up with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The background snow was applied with a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Crayola – Yellow Glitter Glue was applied to the glow around the star of the tree and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff combined with WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter was used to create the snow on the bottom. Stickles – Diamond was applied between the snow drifts to create a little more glitter. Nuvo Crystal Drops – Dandelion Yellow, Red Berry and Caribbean Ocean were applied to the tree for decorations. Once everything was dry, I applied U-Line double-sided tap to the back of the coloured image and applied it to the base to complete the card.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the die cut and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and added in the snow in the sky with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I added in the tree decorations using a combination of Nuvo Crystal Drops: Red Berry, Dandelion Yellow and Carribean Dream. Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Silver and Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Gold were used to create stripes and colour in circles on the presents. Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff was applied to the brim of their hats and pom-poms and heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. A little bit of Stickles – Diamond was added onto top of the brims and pompoms to make them sparkly.  I added in the snow on the bottom using a spatula and Nuvo Glimmer Paste – Moonstone and let it dry. Once it was dry, I added in some Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff to give the snow a little more texture. This too, was heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I adhered the image to the base card using double-sided tape and Stickles – Diamond was added to the top and side of the sign to complete the card.

Dancing Gnome!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs –  Dancing Girl Gnome from the new November release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “Chin up princess or the crown slips” and “Happy Birthday”.

The base was created with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock cut and folded to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I printed out Nana Vics Digitals – Ballerina #2 Digital Paper and cut it to size using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and then adhered it to the base using double-sided tape and some glue. Stickles – Purple was added around all of the edges of the patterned paper background. I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the sentiment and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet was used to ink around all of the edges. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut with scissors and outlined around the edges with a black marker. I ran this through my Xyron Creative Station and applied it to Momenta – Cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around the image and then ran it through my Xyron Creative Station. This time, the image was placed onto black cardstock. I fussy cut around it and then added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment. Both the image and the sentiment were then popped up onto the card. I added in a few Kraftin Kimmie – Festive Dots to finish off the card.

Today, I’m sharing a card I made using KLM Digital Designs –  Office Gnome from the new November release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “You got this!” and “Strive for progress, not perfection”. This card would also be great for someone you know just starting a new position or a recent graduate as well.

To make the card, I started with a base created with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock cut and folded to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I taped off the top of the card with some Post-It Note tape and inserted the Heffy Doodle – Cityscape stencil over top of the bottom half of the card. I taped off the bottom of the stencil and the sides to keep it place. Using multiple Picket Fence – Blending Brushes, I added in the buildings using Memento – Gray Flannel, Memento – London Fog and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Hickory Smoke. I removed the stencil and reapplied it over the card, this time using the stencil to cover the buildings. I re-applied the tape to the bottom of the stencil to keep it in place. Using stencils that I had previously created using Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die, I applied the clouds in using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean with Picket Fence – Blending Brushes. I removed the stencil and turned it around. This time using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Hickory Smoke to add in the windows on the buildings along with just a touch of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. I moved the tape up to where the buildings ended on the bottom and once again placed it across the card. This time, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. The background was now complete.

The image and sentiment were both imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to die cut the image with a small margin around it. This was coloured in with Copic markers. My Cuttlebug, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers were used to die cut the sentiment and black cardstock. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the backs of the images and 2 die cuts to pop-up them all up onto the finished background to complete the card.
