Nuts About You!


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and this week at High Hopes Rubber Stamps love is in the air! LOL! This week, I used this adorable little elephant called  Peeking Ellie With Heart – P127 for the main image and Nuts About You – F128 for the sentiment!

The card base is 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4 inches on white cardstock. I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut around the image only leaving a thin slice of white in a few areas. Where I had trimmed the paper closest to the image, I outlined it with black marker.

Next, after running scrap pieces of paper through my Xyron Create a Sticker, I die cut the heart border using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. I also used the same die cut to cut out the big heart. Then I taped the metal die cut and the paper down onto a piece of cardboard so that I could colour the big heart and still leave a white border. Once the heart was coloured, I covered “about you” with some Scotch Tape and then stamped “I’m nuts”. I repeated the process only this time, I covered “I’m nuts” with the Scotch Tape and then stamped “about you” below it. Of course, I removed the tape each time before stamping.

I cut out the red contrasting paper and patterned paper with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214).

Now it was time to put it all together. I mounted the red rectangle directly onto the base. I mounted the patterned rectangle onto some white cardstock and used my cutter to create a thin white border all the way around it. Then, I popped up the rectangle, Ellie and the big heart with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Lastly, to finish it off, I added the border sticker to the bottom of the first rectangle and hearts that I created earlier.

Be My Valentine???


Welcome KLM Digital Design Fans!!

Hi There! Katy the owner of KLM Digital Designs asked me to join her Design Team. YAY!

 

So today, I’m sharing my first creation that I made using several of KLM Digital Designs’ new stamps.

I decided to create a little love scene using Girl Window Gnome and Bouquet Gnome. The sentiment is from Cupid Gnome set. I thought these 2 little Gnomes made such an adorable couple and it looks like love is in the air. LOL!

I made the card on 5″ x 5″ red card base and then for the background, I die cut paper from 49 and Market – Tattered Garden using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I loved the way the paper resembled a building wall. Next I fussy cut around all of the images and sentiment and popped them up on the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. For the sentiment, I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then placed it on the card.

For the final step, I used Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted to die cut Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629 and then added the little hearts above the male Gnome.

Recipe for Card:

And They Lived Happily Ever After!


It’s Wednesday, and I am back to share a wedding card with you. Love is in the air and who doesn’t love weddings? LOL! This week, I used Just Married – S070 for my main image and Lived Happily Ever After – G012 for the sentiment.

I decided to create a scene of the couple driving down the road as they are beginning their new journey as newlyweds. No worries, except a long open road and green pastures ahead.

To create the card I first stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to die cut it out. Then I took a lead pencil and lightly drew in the lines for a road. I wanted the road to curve in order to imitate the couple going on a long journey. I coloured the image in with Copic markers. For the grass, I used various shades of green and then Copic Colourless blending solution and an old face cloth that had ridges on it. I added some of the blending solution to the cloth and lightly tapped it everywhere over the grass. I did this first as I didn’t want the solution to go over the main image.

After the image was all coloured in I mounted the image onto Recollections – Cranberry Cardstock and cut around it to make it square. Next I used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop it up over the gold paper that I had die cut earlier using the same die cuts from My Creative Time.

The card is 6″ x 6″ AC White cardstock. I die cut K&C Company – Kelly Panacci – KP Valentine – 30-599345 with Heartfelt Creations – Fleur Border Basics – HCD1-7120 and the ran the die cuts through my Xyron Creative Station which enabled me to make stickers out of the die cuts. Then I mounted them on the card. I love the effect that they created. I also die cut some hearts using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted using Recollections – Cranberry Cardstock. I ran the cardstock through the Xyron – Create A Sticker first to make it easier to just peel off the backs for the hearts and place them on the card.

I stamped the sentiment and mounted it on top of the gold paper and then popped it up on the card.

Hello My Friend


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Dreamerland released some brand new stamps in October 2019 and today, I’m sharing Hello My Friend (D19080) from the October Character release!

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copic markers. Once it was all coloured, I fussy cut around it leaving a small white border. I then added the final touch on the pom-poms with Stickles Pink and Stickles Aqua.

I used a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ white card for my base. I then cut the patterned paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe at 5-1/4″ x 4″ , inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough and mounted it onto the white base.

For the ovals I used the die cuts from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies, to create the various layers. I used the same paper pad to cut the small oval. Miscellaneous scrap paper that I had for the second oval and white for the last oval. I popped up the first 2 ovals using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the largest oval and then mounted the large oval directly onto the base. Then, I popped up the image using the same 2 sided tape on the top oval.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Cut around the sentiment and then mounted it onto card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

All edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough before mounting onto card.

Card Recipe:

Owl Always Love You!!


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a card that I made using 2 little love birds called Feathered Friends S261 for the main image and Owl Love You G239 for the sentiment.

This card can be used for either Valentine’s Day or for an Anniversary.

I decided to try something new this week and wanted to make the owl’s feathers look real. I believe that I was finally able to get the look that I was after. LOL!

After my main image was all coloured in, it was time to create the sky. Before doing this, I decided to die cut the image first using Lawn Fawn – Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables. Next, I taped the main image down onto a piece of thin cardboard and then taped the die cut down on top of it.

This allowed me to use the inner part of the frame to colour and to leave the outer part of the frame white. I used a variety of Blue Copic markers to create the sky. I had also drawn in some heart shaped clouds with BG70 first, so that I would know where to stop with the other blues. Once my sky was all coloured in, I then used a Colorless Blender to soften the images around the cloud-shaped hearts and also to create some other small hearts as you can see in the finished card above.

To complete the card, I mounted everything onto Cyan and White cardstock and then mounted the image and sentiment on top using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Lastly, I added in some small hearts which I had die cut using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted die. I ran these little hearts through my Xyron to turn them into stickers and then placed them onto the card.

Our Friendship is Magic!


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and for my last High Hopes card for the year, I’m sharing a couple of good friends just relaxing and taking it easy! Sometimes it is nice to just chill out a bit! LOL! The stamp for the main image is called South Pole Pals R147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).

To make my card, I decided to keep it simple. I cut out the frame using Amy Design – Dies – Keep It Cool – Cool Square Frame and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next, I stamped the image using my MISTI into the centre of the die cut. I coloured this in with the Copic markers listed below. For the outside of the die cut, I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China and sponged on the ink using a dauber.

To create the background for the main image, I re-stamped the main image onto Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and fussy cut it out. Then I placed the mask over my coloured image. Next I used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Festive Berries to create the sky. I have never tried this before, and just love the way it turned out.

For the snow, I stamped the bottom of the image with VersaMark ink and then added WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle. I heated up the embossing powder with my heat gun and then added some Stickles – Diamond along the top of the snow.

Next I assembled the card onto 5.5″ x 5.5″ white AC Cardstock. I cut out a piece of 5.5″ x 5.5″ Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper and mounted it with 2 sided tape onto the base. Then I added glue to the back of the frame and centre previously cut and coloured with Zig 2 Way Glue and mounted it onto top of the card.

Lastly, I added the sentiment Magic Friendship F234 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and popped it up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish up the card.
