Time to Celebrate!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Let’s Celebrate – D19074 for the main image and Christmas Snow Scene – M18313 for the background. For the sentiment, I used Holiday Sentiments Set 001 – D163001

 

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers Die were used to die-cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. Using the background stamps, I stamped the background using my MISTI and Memento – Summer Sky ink. I coloured in the sky, trees and house with Copic markers and then added some snow using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Once this was done, I added Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel – Iridescent to the remainder of the die cut for the sparkling snow. I added a little bit more where the boys feet would land and set it aside to dry. Once again, I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and stamped the main images. I coloured them in with Copic markers and then applied Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear to the fur trims for the hats and clothing. I applied WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter to the inked areas and then heat embossed everything with my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. For the pompoms, I applied Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and then heat embossed the liquid for it to puff up. For the present, I added some gold swirls using a Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen. Then I fussy cut around the images leaving a thin white border. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Lawn Fawn – Peacock Ink on to the base card. Then I stamped it again, this time using Versamark ink and then added Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heat embossed it.

The card was now ready to assemble. Using double-sided tape, I attached the background to the scalloped border. I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the scalloped border and popped it up onto the base card. Using 3M double-sided tape, I popped up the main image and present onto the background. A little more of the Stickles – Diamond was added to snow where his feet are to complete the card.

Santa’s New Ride!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Flyin’ High Santa – T093 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Here Comes Santa Claus – G272 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Santa’s giving his reindeer a rest this year as he checks out his new ride. 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 cut the background paper from Creative Memories – Glacier Paper Pack to be the same size and applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. I took a small scrap of Recollections – Black cardstock and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker so that it would become a sticker. With my Cuttlebug and Joy Crafts – Lin & Len Design 1201/0027, I die cut the silhouette out of the black paper and then peeled off the backing and placed it directly to the bottom of the card. Stampendous – Snowflakes – Chunky White was sprinkled over top of the card and melted from the bottom of the card using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped both the image and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I cut the sentiment in half using my cutter and ran it through the Xyron Create a Sticker. I placed the sticker on top of some Recollections – Black cardstock and cut it again using my small cutting tool. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. With a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen, I coloured in the candy cane swirls on the airplane and small circles. Once it was dry, I used Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear to go over the big yellow gumdrop, the swirls on the propeller, the candy cane swirls, small circles on the plane and the star on the tree to add some glitter. For Santa’s cuffs, coat trim and hat, I used Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear and sprinkled on some WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter. I heated this with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and then repeated the process to give it more texture. For Santa’s pop pom, I applied a little bit of Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and then heat embossed it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

The Santa image and sentiment were both popped up onto the background using 3M double-sided tape to complete the card.

Once everything was coloured, the sentiments were stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. I added double-sided tape to the back of the image and attached it directly to the base card.

Time For Warm Socks!!


I’m so happy to join the team of PPCF designers! Today is day 3 of our event for sponsoring CCDesigns on Passionate Paper Creations and Friends FB Group. The card I’m featuring for this event is the New Socks Clear Stamp Set.

To make the card, I began with the base 12″ x 6″ of AC White Cardstock. This was scored at 6″ x 9″ to create an easel card. Closed, the card measures 6″ x 6″. I cut Hammermill – Premium 100 Colour cardstock 6″ x 6″ and coloured in the flooring and base boards with Copic markers.  For the background wall, I cut Momenta – Cardstock to the size of 6″ x 5.5″. I created the large window using Paper Roses – Victorian Window die, my Cuttlebug and Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper. I traced around the die and then manually cut the background from Pebbles – Home for Christmas paper pad. I did the same procedure for cutting Judi-Kins Embossable Window Plastic. I glued the plastic window to the die cut and added Stickles – Diamond to the back of the window along the frames. Once the Stickles was dry, I added some trees from Make Special Cards XMas 2015 – Issue 3 to the back of the plastic window and glued the snowy background onto the plastic window and frame to complete the scene.  This was attached directly to the wall background using glue.

The characters were coloured with Copic markers and I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the images after fussy cutting around them to pop them up on the page. Using the same paper that I used for the wall background, I cut to be 4″ x 1.75″ and popped up onto the bottom half of the base card using 3M double-sided tape (2 layers). The sentiment was cut to 3-13/16″ x 1-9/16″ and attached directly to the previous cut. To complete the card, the 6″ x 6″ scene was attached to the bottom half of the 3″ score previously done. The edges of the green paper were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness.

Merry Little Christmas!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called The Most Wonderful Gift Of All – D18038 and for the sentiment Happiness Is Time Spent With A Good Friend – D20009. Do you remember playing with your train sets at Christmas time? I remember playing with my brothers and cousins sets. It was always so much fun watching the trains go around the tracks.

 

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. For the background paper, I used Recollections – Burgundy cardstock cut to the same size as the base. The background layer was cut from Carta Bella – Santa’s Workshop paper, cut to the size of 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was used to ink around the edges and it was attached to the burgundy background using double-sided tape. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die was used to die-cut the Recollections – Burgundy cardstock for the background to go behind the coloured image. This was popped up onto the main background with 3M double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto this die cut. I then taped the die cut back over the paper and coloured in the image using Copic markers. This allowed me to keep a thin white border around the coloured image. Stickles – Diamond was used to fill in the area on the inside of the tracks to represent a snowy base. I used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to add some snow to the little trees and some of the roof tops. Once the Stickles was all dry, I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink. This was embossed using my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the coloured image and popped it up.

Lastly, I placed some washi-tape onto white cardstock and trimmed it to have a thin white border. I ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker so that it would lay flat and placed it onto some Recollections – Burgundy cardstock. Using my paper trimmer, I trimmed around the edges and them popped it up onto the background using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish off the card.

There’s A Nap For That!!


Sharing a birthday card that I made for my husband using Art Impressions – Lazy Boy Set – Ai4159 and Stampin’ Up – Country Club Designer Series Paper for the golf player background. I’ve taken a few pictures over the years of my hubby in this exact position and couldn’t resist this stamp when I saw it. He laughed as soon as he saw the card and said it looked just like him too. LOL!

 

To make the card, I began with the base of 5″ x 5″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. I coloured in the backgound picture with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail onto American Crafts – “Holiday” paper. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder.

The card was now ready for assembly. I cut some light brown cardstock to the size of 5″ x 3.75″ and attached it directly to the base. I cut the background picture to the size of 3-3/8″ x 2-7/8″ and cut some dark brown cardstock to the size of 3-5/8″ x 3″ and used double-sided tape to attach them both together and to the base card. The flooring background with the sentiment was cut to 5″ x 1″ and attached using double-sided tape to the bottom of the card. Lastly, I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the image after fussy cutting around it and attached it to the card.

Woodland Gnome!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Woodland Gnome Girl from the new August release. This little gnome is keeping calm even with little bees flying around. I know if it was me, I’d be running for cover. LOL!

 

This image also comes with 2 other sentiments, “You gno-me too well” and “Just because”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using by Brother Scan and Cut, I cut around the image leaving a small white border. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. PhotoPlay – Gnome for the Holidays Thanksgiving paper was cut to the same size as the base and attached using double-sided tape. Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper was cut to the size of 5.5″ x 2.5″ and glued onto the sunflower paper in the centre. The image was popped up and placed onto the centre of the yellow background paper. Using my Cuttlebug, die cut from Lawn Fawn – Simple Grassy Hillsides and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper, I cut the grass. I fussy cut around the printed sentiment and used Copic YGO1 to fill in the background and to go around the fussy cut. I ran this piece through my Xyron Create a Sticker because I wanted the sentiment to lay nice and flat on the grass background. The grass was then centred and popped up on the card. All of the background layers were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness before placing them onto the card. Lastly, to complete the card I added in a few bees from Sprinkletz Embellishments – Bubble Bees.

Free Broom Rides!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Free Broom Rides – TT017 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Wicked – FF052 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Wouldn’t you love to go on a magical broom for a ride? I know I would.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 5.5″. I cut the background paper from Echo Park – I Love Halloween paper pad to be the same size as the base and inked around the edges and onto the paper using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. I applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and orange cardstock. Using black cardstock I cut another piece to the size of 5.5″ x 1.25″. I applied this to the base using double-sided tape. I inked around the orange die cut with a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the orange die cut and applied it to the base.

The image and sentiment were then stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. The sentiment was die cut with my Cuttlebug and Whimsy – Quick Strips Die Set dies. I inked around the edges and on top by first using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin with a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and then around the edges again, this time using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. To finish off the card, I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment and popped them both up.

Sorry You’re Hurting!!


Sharing a card I made using Clearly Whimsy Stamps – Get Well Dragons – DP1034 for a colleague that had a knee operation recently. I wanted to make a fun card to cheer him up a bit and thought this was the perfect image to make it happen.

To make the card, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then fussy cut around it leaving a thin white border. I stamped all of the sentiments onto black cardstock using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail powder. The embossing powders were all heated with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The smaller sentiments were all die cut using my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals. For the background, I used my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Rounded Tags dies to die cut the background paper – Asuka Studio – Sparkly Sky and black cardstock. I die cut the grass using Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders and Sizzix Rounded Tags. I inked the top border of the grass with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint.

The card was now ready to assemble. I started with a base card of 5.5″ x 4.5″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. I applied double-sided tape to the back of the black die cut, The patterned paper and the grass cut and applied them all directly to the card. I ran 2 of the “Ouch!” die cuts through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached them to the top of the card.  Using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I popped up the image and 2 other sentiments to finish off the card.

Scarecrow!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Harvest Scarecrow from the new August release. I don’t think the crows are very scared of this scarecrow just chillaxing on a beautiful autumn day.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut the image and frame using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers dies. I applied painters tape around all of the edges to keep the slim white border around the image. I coloured in the the image with Copic markers and then attached it to the card base from The Paper Studio – Primary Simply Solids (4.25″ x 5.5″) using double-sided tape.

Be-Lated Birthday Chicks!!


Sharing a belated birthday card I made for my sister-in-law using Art Impressions – Spring Chicken Set – AiCS40. I really had fun with these cool Chicks! LOL!

Inside of the card.

To make the card, I began with the base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut Echo Park Paper Co. – My Favorite Winter paper. I just loved this paper and thought it had the look of barn board for the chicken coop. Double-sided tape was applied to the back of the background paper and it was applied directly to the base card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony was used to ink around all of the edges of the card. Using Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles dies, I die cut 1 large circle from black cardstock and 1 smaller circle from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Down on the Farm paper. I inked around the smaller circle with the same Tim Holtz ink. I applied the 2 circles together using double-sided tape and then added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the larger circle and attached it to the background. The speech bubble was die cut with Spellbinders Die D-Lites – Conversation Bubble 4 and my Cuttlebug.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. Once everything was coloured, I fussy cut around both images. I popped up the image on the front with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and ran the second image through my Xyron Creative Station to make a sticker out of it and placed it on the inside of the card. All of the sentiments were stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Too heated the powder. The sentiment bubble was popped up onto the front of the card with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Merry and Bright!!


Today, I’m sharing a light up Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Lets Decorate Our Home – D18037 and for the sentiment Holiday Sentiments Set 003. It’s never too early to start making Christmas cards and here’s hoping that this card will brightens someone’s day this coming Christmas.

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. For the background paper, I used my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies to die cut American Crafts – “Holiday” paper. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers and then I adhered the background to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it in with Copic markers. I added some Stickles – Diamond to the pompom on the hat and fur at the top of the little girl’s boots. For the fluffy snow, I used Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and sprinkled on some DecoArt Glamour Dust while it was still wet. Using my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool, I heated up the liquid for it to puff up and look like sparkling snow. I poked holes in the card where I wanted the blue lights to go. I applied some tissue paper over the holes on the back of the image to diffuse the lights. Using Versamark ink and my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment and then applied Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This too was heated with my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. Lastly, added some snowflakes using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I then set the coloured image aside.

It was now time to set up the bright blue lights for the house using Chibi Lights, copper tape and a battery. I cut out an another rectangle slightly smaller than the coloured image. Placing the coloured image over top of the smaller rectangle, I used a pencil for the placement of the lights on the roof. For the placement of the battery, I used the remote in the girl’s hands as a guide. After mapping out the route for the lights, I place the copper tape down and added 3 blue Chibi Lights to the “+” and “-” paths leading back to the battery. The set up was tested to make sure the lights would come on. Once this was completed, I used 3 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape around the 3 sides of the battery to pop the image up high enough off of the card so that the battery would only light up the lights when someone pressed down on it. To keep the card even all the way around, I added 3 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the remainder of the smaller rectangle. The image was then attached to the smaller rectangle. I added some double-sided tape to the back of the smaller rectangle and adhered it directly to the card to finish it off.

1st Communion!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Communion Cross from the new August release. This image comes with 3 sentiments. I’ve used 1 on my card, but you also have the choice of  “First Communion” and “On Your First Holy Communion”. This would be great image and sentiment to give to either your child or a friend’s child celebrating this blessed sacrament.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut the image and frame using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers dies. I coloured in the the image with Copic markers and then placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Starburst stencil over top and taped off the area that I wanted to use. Using Copic Y04, I coloured in the darker rays using the stencil as a guide. The tape was carefully removed from the top and sides of the stencil. The tape was placed back down at the top before removing the tape from the bottom of the stencil. After removing the stencil completely, the tape was placed back down on the 2 sides and bottom where the darker rays ended. Using the darker rays as a guide, I coloured in the lighter rays using Copic Y00 marker. All of the tape was removed at this point which left a nice thin white border around it.

Using the same dies again, I die-cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold to use for my background.

The card was now ready to assemble. Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. was used to create the card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. The gold background was added directly to the base using double-sided tape. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the back of the image to pop it up and it was placed directly over the gold background.

Baking Snowman!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Baking Snowman from the July release. This image comes with 3 sentiments. I’ve used 1 on my card, but you also have the choice of  “Lovin’ from the oven” and “Wishing you a delicious Holiday”. Christmas at our house always had so many wonderful aromas from my mom baking all kinds of Christmas goodies for everyone!

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die the image and frame using my Cuttlebug and Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Paper Cuts Collection – Christmas Feast dies. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and then added in the snowflakes for the sky with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Black PrismaColor Premier Pencil was used to outline parts of the image. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel – Iridescent was added below the snowman to create the sparkling snow and the image was set aside to dry.

The frame for the sentiment die was cut twice using Gina Marie Designs – Nested Scalloped Stitched Rectangles. A cutter was used to remove the frame from the one that contained the sentiment. The edges were then inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door. Viva Decor – Inka-Gold – Yellowgold was applied to the other 2 frames and then once it was dry, a paper towel was used to buff them up and give the gold some shine. The sentiment was then applied directly to the small frame using double-sided tape.

The card was now ready to assemble. Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. was used to create the card base. It was sized at 8-5/8″ x 7¼” and then scored at 3-5/8″. I used my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss to die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper using PinkFresh Studio Essentials – Slim Stitched Rectangle Dies. The dimensions were the same as the base card. Using glue, I applied the large rectangle die-cut directly to the base card. Next, I used the outside frame for the snowman as a guide to where to place the coloured image. I removed the image and applied glue to the back of it and set it back inside the frame. Once the image was glued down to the base, I added glue to the back of the frame and moved it into place around the coloured image to complete the puzzle. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the back of the frame for the sentiment and it was added directly to the glitter paper. Lastly, to finish off my card, I removed the button parts from the backs of the buttons from Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – Christmas Cookies using my Tim Holtz scissors and pliers.  Mini Glue Dots were applied to the backs of each of the buttons and they were applied directly to the glitter paper.

Think Snow!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Snowman Stumble – TT014 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Think Snow 2 – FF047 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I grew up skating at the outdoor rink directly across the street from my house. We couldn’t wait to get home from school and throw on our skates. The rinks were always full of children from the neighbourhood. We would either play rink games or hockey. I think there was a rink every couple of blocks. As soon as we’d finish eating, we were back on the ice again. Our parents were always yelling at us to come inside at the end of the day. How times have changed. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies were used to die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper to be the same size as the base card. With a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, I created the background sky. I applied this directly to the glitter background paper. Once this was done, I applied this directly to the base using double-sided tape. Next, Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD001 – Mountains were used to die cut the tree scenery using Momenta – Cardstock and using a small dauber I added in some darker touches of green using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint. The pond was die cut using Whimsy Stamps – Wavy Nested Frame Dies Set and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I inked the image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. Lastly, I die cut the sentiment using Joy Crafts – Labels and Tags and inked around the edges with my Picket Fence – Blending Brush and the ink that was still on it from doing the sky.

I coloured in the image with Copic markers and added in some highlights on the skate blades with Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen. I inked the image a second time onto the Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper for the snowman body and fussy cut around it. Once it was coloured in with Copics, I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to the base stamped image.

The card was now ready to assemble. Part of the pond was cut off at the top before it was attached it to the sparkly background using glue and double-sided tape. Next, I added some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the trees and applied it over top of where the sky ended and the pond met. To create the snow around the pond and in between the trees, pond and snow, I used Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and added some DecoArt Glamour Dust while it was still wet. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the liquid and make it puff up to look like fluffy snow. I added some Stickles – Diamond to the pompom. Using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point pen, I created the snow in the sky. Lastly, to finish off the card, I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the sentiment and applied it to the card.

Sending Big Hugs!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using this super adorable image from Dreamerland Crafts stamps called My True Love – D18018. Great big in person hugs or even virtual hugs are always nice to give to give to someone or something that you love.

Here is a close-up of the featured image.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 8-7/8″ x 3-7/8″ using Aqua cardstock. I die cut Crafts – Foil Designer Paper – 02-3080678 using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and PinkFresh Studio Essentials – Slim Stitched Rectangle Die Set. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough, I inked all around the edges of the card and die cut. Then I inked the front of the die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers, and Speckled Egg using Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was applied last at the bottom of the panel to represent grass. I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the die cut and added it to the base card.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it in with Copic markers. The coloured image was fussy cut out and a black marker was used to go around all of the edges. This was then applied directly to the patterned paper using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To create the “Sending Big Hugs” sentiment, I first took an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of black cardstock and cut it at the 4.25″ mark. Then I ran both pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I find this makes it much simpler than trying to add glue to each piece. Once this was done, using my Cuttlebug, I die cut the black cardstock using Lawn Fawn – “Sending Big Hugs” die 6 times. Then I did it 1 more time using Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Ombre Pastel after I had run it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I cut around the word “Big” to make it stand out.

I peeled off the sticker from the back of each of them and applied each layer on top of each other to create an embossed image. Then I added the sparkly “Big” as a last layer. I applied this to the patterned paper at the top of the card. Lastly, If felt something was missing, so I added some Stickles – Aqua all around the edges of the large rectangle die cut.

It Will Be Oak-ay!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Fall Oak Gnome from the July release. This image comes with 3 sentiments. I’ve used 1 on my card, but you also have the choice of  “Oak-ey Dokey” and “Hope You are Oak-ky”. I love the sentiment that I chose for this card because you could use it for so many different occasions. It could be used as a  “Get Well” card, an “inspirational card” for someone about to write a big exam or a “Just Because” card.

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut it to the size of 5.5″ x 4.5″ using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers dies. I inked around the brown layer with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Gathered Twigs and around the patterned paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and attached directly to the brown layer. The largest die cut which was cut from Your Next Stamp – Fabulous Fall patterned paper was applied directly to the card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock using double-sided tape. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the brown rectangle and adhered directly to the patterened paper. To complete my card, I added a little squirrel button from Dress It Up – Backyard Buddies using double-sided tape and glue.

Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Cup O’ Gnome from the July release. This image comes with multiple sentiments. I’ve used 2 on my card, but you also have the choice of  “You’re A Sweet-Tea” and “Sending A Bit of Happiness”. To me there is nothing like a nice cup of tea either during the day or right after supper at night. My cupboard is full of multiple varieties of herbal teas.

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut it to the size of 5.5″ x 4.5″ using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and double-sided tape was applied to the back of the image and adhered to a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. To complete my card, I added some Kraftin Kimmie Krafty Dots – Pastel and Dazzling and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers.

Hugs!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called True Friendship – D18020 for the main image and sentiment. It’s always great to see our friends and give them a big hug. Now, it’s wonderful that more and more of my family and friends are getting their 2nd Covid shots, so we will all be able to hug each other again when we see each other. Have you given someone a hug today?

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I die cut the aqua and pink layers using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Rectangle Die Set. I trimmed off the loops and line pattern to create a slim border out of the pink cardstock. I applied liquid glue on the the back of the aqua design and adhered it directly to the base card. Next, I applied some double-sided foam tape to the back of the pink rectangle and placed it on  top of the aqua die cut.

For the main image, I first die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. Next, using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto this and coloured it in with Copic markers. I stamped a second image onto regular copy paper and fussy cut around the image by hand to create a mask. This I placed over top of the coloured image of the 2 little girls. I was able to create the cloudy sky using the stencil from Heffy Doodle – Cloudy Skies, a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China and a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush. The grass base was created with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn, Lawn Fawn – Slimline Grassy Hillside Stencils and a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush. Then, I removed the mask and added in a little more texture to the grass using the Copics listed below.

To create the “Hugs” sentiment, I first ran some black cardstock through my Xyron Create a Sticker. Then using the die-cut from Sugar Script – Hugs, I cut it out 4 times to create a raised image. Since, I had already made stickers out of them, it was easy to peel off the backing and layer them on top of each other. I layered the first 3 and then on the last layer, I first applied Stickles – Black Diamond to it and set it aside to dry. Once, it was dry, I added it as the top layer. I just loved how it had that added sparkle. LOL!

To complete my card, I applied some liquid glue to the back of the coloured image and then adhered it directly to the pink layer. I peeled the backing off of my bottom layer of “Hugs” and applied it directly to the coloured image.
