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.

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.

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!

Monster Birthday Card


Hi There,

Monster BD Front

Monster BD Inside

Back again to share a Monster Birthday card that I made using some stamps, dies and sequins from Craftin Desert Divas.

To make my card I used the following:

Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames, Party Dies, Monster Mania stamp set and Corn Maze sequins.

I also used Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore to die cut the images for the Monster Mania stamps from an .svg file of the same name.

Next, I cut paper pierced the monsters.

I had some Monster paper and balloon paper on hand and thought it would go great with this stamp set.

Images were coloured with Spectrum Noir Markers and PrismaColor Premier Pencils with Gamsol.

I really loved this set. It was so much fun to create with.

Hope you like it!

 

 

Super Mario Minion Birthday Card


Hi There,

Sharing a Super Mario Birthday card that I made for my nephew.

Super Mario Minion HB in 300 dpi

The .svg file was from the SVG Cuts “One in a “Minion” Blog Hop!” on June 12, 2015. The file was only available at the time of the hop.

To make this card, I imported the .svg file into Cricut Design Space and then used the Cricut Explore to cut out the pieces.

LOVE  my Cricut Explore!!!

I needed to find some brick to put the characters up on, so I went shopping looking for an embossing folder or die cut. Couldn’t find any and then it dawned on me.

I have Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore. I could just make my own wall!!!!

I used the round corner rectangle and made various sizes, cut them out and placed them onto a solid colour. Voila! I had my brick wall.

For the background I used #Summer Paper Pad 6 x 6 in (15.2 x 15.2 cm) from American Crafts.

The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas – Little Super Star.

Balloons are from Frances Meyer – Stickers – (FST 955 Balloons).

White stitching around the pocket is made with

Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

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.
