Surfing Gabriel!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a masculine card using Surfing Gabriel – TT516 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and No Waves – FR011 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Gabriel is enjoying the waves and the bright skies. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up here so that I can start swimming again too!

To make my card this week, I die cut a square from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. A larger square was cut using Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies and spare blue cardstock. The image and sentiment were both stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then, I created a mask and put it over top of the coloured image and added in my clouds using various Tim Holtz inks listed below and Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (Used to create stencils). To create the spray on the waves, I mixed a little bit of FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint and Delta Ceramcoat – White paint and applied it to the coloured image using a 1/4″ H.J. Domed Dry Stipple brush. For a little extra sparkle, I added some DecoArt Glamour Dust while the paint was still wet.

Brother Scan and Cut was used to die-cut around the sentiment. Edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch. A second circle was die cut using Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles out of aqua cardstock and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers.

To assemble the card, I used Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 for the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used to ink around the edges of the card. The coloured image was glued to the larger square and the sentiment was glued to the larger circle. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was attached to the backs of the larger circle and square and attached to the base card. To finish it off, YNS Gumdrops were added.

Surfer Bob!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a masculine card using Surfer Bob – TT519 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Surf’s Up – FR009 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Wild and crazy Bob has awesome balance on his surf board. We had the opportunity to see surfers in Hawaii riding the waves on one of our trips. It was amazing!!! I’ve never tried surfing before, but I would sure love to. It’s definitely on my bucket list. LOL!

To make my card this week, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper folded to 4.25″ x 5.5″ for the base. I cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the same size as the base and stamped the image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and created my own background.

To create the background, I first created a mask of Surfer Bob using Post-It Note paper and fussy cut around the image. Then I put it over top of the coloured image. Using a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Lawn Fawn – Cloudy Stencil, I began the top of the sky with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. I did this for 2 rows and then switched to Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass, followed by Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink – Broken China. The mask was removed and the water was created by just adding a mixture of strokes with the Copic colours listed below.

I added double-sided tape to the coloured image and attached it to the base. Then, I mixed a little bit of FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint and Delta Ceramcoat – White paint. Using a 1/4″ H.J. Domed Dry Stipple brush, I created the water spray for the waves. For a little extra sparkle, I added some DecoArt Glamour Dust while the paint was still wet.

Stamp: Surfer Bob – TT519 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Surf’s Up – FR009 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Walking in a Winter Wonderland


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card with you that I made using DCS19089 – Mix and Match Clear Stamp  (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the main image and sentiment and 2018 Christmas Trees & Houses – M18312 (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the trees in the background! I thought this little bear was just so adorable, so I thought I would make him pulling his little forest friend on a little walk through the forest!

I used the centre die cut from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background – CED3049 to cut out the area I wanted to stamp my image on. I used Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI to get a nice clean image. The first step was to stamp the bear, sled and bunny. Next I used Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and stamped the 3 images again. Next, I added the masked images over top of the images that were previously stamped on the base image.

The second step was to stamp in the trees. I wanted to give the impression that some trees were further back, so I inked the tree stamp with Memento – Bamboo Leaves and stamped once and then immediately again using the same stamp. I performed this several times across the background. Once all of the trees were in place, I removed the masking and was ready to colour in my images.

Before adding snow to the sky, I stamped on the sentiment using VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I added in the snow flakes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

The colours used for each character and the trees are listed below. The final step for the main image was to add in some sparkle on the trees and snow on the ground. For the glitter on the trees I used Quickie Glue and DecoArt Glamour Dust. For the snow below the trees, sled and bear, I used VersaMark ink and WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle and touches of Stickles – Diamond.

Lastly, I die cut the background frame using Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background. I added glue to the back of the die cut and mounted it on top of Crafts Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. Then I popped up the main image in the centre using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

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!
