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.

Fairy Garden!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I’m sharing a card I made from the High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Mix It Up Release”  using Fairy Garden – TT141 for the main image and Leave Room – LL015 for the sentiment! I love movies and reading books about Fantasy! It’s always so much fun to get lost in the moment, just like these little fairies are enjoying their little magical garden!

To make my card this week, I started out with a base card using AC Cardstock – White at the size of 6″ x 6″. I thought this paper by Graphic45 – Unique Papercrafting – Fairie Dust Collection – Moonlit Blooms went so well with the sentiment and the garden, so I die-cut it using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Squares – Set B. I used double-sided tape and attached it directly to the base.

The image and sentiment were both stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it and the sentiment. I ran both pieces through my Xyron Creative Station to make them into stickers and so that they would lie completely flat when I attached them to some pieces of Recollections – Black cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around the coloured image and sentiment. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was attached to the backs of the image and sentiment and were applied directly to the background of the card to finish it off.
