Define Naughty!


Hi Everyone! I’m participating in the 2020 Cat Lovers Blog Hop (#2020CatLoversHop) this year.

This is my third year joining the fun event. For six years, Her Peaceful Garden has been sponsoring The Cat Lover’s Blog Hop and it is a lot of fun.

This year, I created a Christmas card using  Callie Christmas Kitty – R096 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Define Naughty – FLL004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I just love this adorable stamp and it reminds me so much of how my cats used to love playing with the Christmas tree ornaments every year. We definitely learned our lesson after the first time, 2 of our little babes as kittens decided it would be fun to take down the entire tree. After that happened, all ornaments put on the tree were unbreakable and cat friendly. LOL!

To make my card, I started with a base of 6″ x 6″. I cut some Recollections – Cranberry cardstock to the same size and attached it directly to the base. For the main background, I used my Cuttlebug and Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Squares – Set B to die cut Recollections – Christmas Pets paper. I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Weathered Wood and applied it to the base using 2-sided tape.

For smaller background Recollections – Cranberry cardstock was used and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper for the main image. I used My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers die cuts. Copic Markers were used for the main image. Once the image was coloured, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and applied Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder which I heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

To complete the card, I attached the main image to the red backing with 2-sided tape. Then I popped up the small background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I applied Diamond Stickles all around the frame of the image and added a little green bow and some pop-dots to finish off the card.

Birthday Message For You!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using a combination of Dreamerland Crafts stamps.  A Special Message For You – D16001 was used for the boy image and sentiment, Mailbox & Wall – Mix & Match Collection – M18301 and  Window & Gate – Mix & Match Collection – M18302 were used to create the background. I just love how these stamps came together to help me to create this scene.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 6″ x 6″. I die cut X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and dies from Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Squares – Set B. I used the square die that was about 5.75″ x 5.75″.

Next, I created a mask of each of the stamps I was going to use to create the scene. The boy was stamped first and then I placed the mask over top of him. Next was the gate, then the brick wall and the foliage.  I added the masks after stamping each piece. Lastly, I stamped the 2 windows. All masking was removed at this point.

To create the main building brick wall, I used Kraftin’ Kimmie Stencil – Brick Wall. Using my magentic mat, small magnets were used to hold the stencil down over the image. Then Copic markers were used to create the texture of the brick. Once all of the brick was done, C4 and C2 were used to fill in the spaces in between. I drew in the sidewalk using a combination of C0 – C5 markers.

After all of the main colouring was done, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch was used to stamp the sentiment. Then, because I was using my MISTI, it was easy to then re-ink the sentiment with Versamark ink and then emboss it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat up the embossing powder.

It’s Pasture Birthday!


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share a card that I made using Farmer Clem (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) on the front of the card and Charlie Party Cow (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) on the inside. A friend asked me to create her a belated birthday card for her farmer friend and I thought this made the perfect combination to do it.

I coloured in Farmer Clem (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and then fussy cut around him and popped him up on the front of the card. All of the sentiments were created in Microsoft Word and then printed out on my printer. Details are below.

 

For the inside of my card, I stamped the Charlie Party Cow (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) twice and then fussy cut around both of the cows to make it look like they had a party going on. I popped up the one cow image to give the scene a little bit of depth.

Happy Birthday Bear


Hi There Everyone!

Today I’m sharing a card that I made using the stamps and sentiments from YNS Honey Bear (Your Next Stamp)! I thought this little bear was super adorable and would make a great card for one my friends that loves honey!!!

 

For the honeycomb corner, I used some watercolour paper and a mixture of Tim Holtz inks. Then I used the Honeycomb Corner die cut to cut it out and again went over that area with a mixture of inks to create the honey colour effect.

I was also so excited when I received the e-mail from Jackie letting me know that my card was accepted for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. It was my first time ever entering any of my cards so I thought it was awesome. It can be found on page 126 of the Summer 2019 magazine.
