Lee Holland Art has been sponsoring us throughout the month of November at  Passionate Paper Creations & Friends FB group site!! Today, I’m featuring this adorable dragon image from Lee Holland Art called Reindeer Antlers Christmas Dragon. Thank you Lee Holland Art for sponsoring us and having such amazing fun designs to choose from. I love all of your little dragons.

 

For the base card, I used AC Cardstock – White and cut it and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. For the background, I cut Creative Memories – Mermaid Cove Designer Paper to the same size as the base card. The image using HP High Quality Grayscale was printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies, the printed image and Hot Buy – Recollections Ombre Brights Paper were both die cut. The sentiment was stamped using my Misti, VersaMark Ink and sentiment stamps from Lawn Fawn – “Offset Sayings – Christmas” and Lawn Fawn “Winter Skies”. Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder was applied to the stamped sentiments and then heat set with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

I cut the sentiment down to be 3-3/8″ x 1-2/8″ and then used W R Memory Keepers – Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to create .25″ corners. Using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I went around all of the edges of the cuts with the exception of the image die cut. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow in the sky and a combination of Stickles – Crystal, Stickles – Waterfall and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff which was applied prior to the Stickles being added.

The card was now ready to be assembled. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the coloured image and cut frame to pop them up. I doubled up the tape for behind the sentiment. The base paper was applied directly to the card base using double-sided tape. I peeled off the tape from the backings of the elements and popped them all up onto the base card to finish it off.

Surfin’ Dudley!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used High Hopes Stamps’ image Surf Scene Dudley – S244. I’ve seen surfers in action while travelling the world, but have never gone on one myself. Who knows, maybe someday???? Dudley, sure looks happy sporting his vacation pose. LOL!

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and used Copic – Opaque White to create the splash on the waves. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers were both used to die cut the coloured image and background papers. The edges were inked around with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. The image was then attached to the Aqua background using double-sided tape.

To assemble the card, I began with a base card of Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes (5.5″ x 4.25″). I popped up the 2 backgrounds with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and attached them both to the base card. Lastly, I added some pop-dots from CC Designs – Dragon Dreams Enamel to finish it off.

Come To Save The Day!


It’s Wednesday, and this week using High Hopes Stamps, I made a slim line card using  Sir Dustin – T177Jousting Dragon – S221 and Castle – R092 images and Here I Come…. – F248 for the sentiment. I love fantasy and dragons and thought these images were so much fun to play with.

I made my slim line card using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock for my base folded at 4″ x 9″.

I stamped the images and sentiment using Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut the Copic paper with PinkFresh Studio – Essential Slim Cuts to use for the background. I decided to stamp the castle and sentiment directly onto the background. The other 2 images were stamped separately and then I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around them and fussy cut where they still had some white around the images.

I coloured in the Castle – R092 using Royal Blue colours for the flags, the same as Sir Dustin – T177 who I coloured in as the Blue Knight. I added some extra bricks onto the castle to give it some more texture. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die stencils that I made using the die cuts, I coloured in the sky. To give some texture to the grass, I first used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn. Then I enhanced the colours using my Copic markers. I added some glue onto the back of the coloured image and attached it directly to the base card.

Sir Dustin – T177 was coloured in with Copic Markers and then I used a black marker to go around the entire image. This was popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the background. I used Royal Blues for his outfit and Royal Purples and gold for his dragon.

Lastly, I coloured in Jousting Dragon – S221 as the Red Knight with Copic Markers and then I went around the image with a black marker. I decided to make him the Red Knight and added a “D” to his shield for “Dragon”. LOL! The image was popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card.

Magical Friendship


It’s Wednesday, and this week, we are celebrating a brand new August 2020 Release with variety of fun new images! Be sure to go and check them out, you won’t be disappointed.

Today, I’m using Dreamy Dragon – SLF019 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for my main image from this new release along with the sentiment Magic Friendship – F234 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). This little dragon looks so peaceful and it looks like he’s found a new friend too!

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card sized at 5.5″ x 5.5″. Then cut Recollections – Petite Floral paper to the same size and taped it down onto the base card. Next, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Purple Petunia ink was used to ink around the card. Another piece was cut from the same paper collection at 1.25″ x 5.5″ and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Party Peach ink was used to ink around the edges. The cardstock was put through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then mounted on top of the base card.

Next, My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the scalloped circle background out of Recollections – Purple Passions and circle for the main image out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The main image and sentiment were both stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink using my MISTI. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then the sentiment was die cut using My Creative Time – Sentiment Label Dies. I traced around the outside of the die and then cut it out of the same Recollections – purple paper so that the die cut piece would have a thin border around it. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron and adhered it directly on top of it. I cut off one side of the label so that it would be flush with the edge of the card. The same purple ink used earlier was used again to edge around it. The image, sentiment and large scalloped circle was then popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Once this was done, Stickles – Purple was used to go around the edges of the large scallop and Stickles – Icicle was used to go around the main image. Lastly, a few flowers from Crafts – Mini Fabric Flower Picks were added to finish off the card.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Dream Dragon – SLF019 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Magic Friendship – F234 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Party Peach, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Purple Petunia

Paper: Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Recollections – Petite Floral (12 x 12 in – 30.4 x 30.4 cm), Recollections – Purple Passions 8.5″ x 11″

Wade Goes To The Beach!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Wade – 132 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Summer’s Day Saying – L031 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Wade couldn’t wait to go the beach. He’s enjoying the waves and the beautiful beach and sunshine. It will be wonderful when we can all join him with our friends and families too!

To make my card this week, I started off with a white card base of 6″ x 6″. I cut out another piece of paper using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock the same size as the base card. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug using Stampin’ Up – Sizzix Big Shot – Seaside. I loved the wavy pattern it created. Next, I used multiple Tim Holtz shades of blue to create the water effect. All colours are listed below.

I used my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and white cardstock for my image and sentiment. I stamped the sentiment and image onto the die cuts and then coloured in the main image with Copic markers. The background was coloured in using a variety of Copic Refill inks, Colorless Blender and a Q-Tip. For the water, I wisped several colours back and forth and then added some Copic Colorless Blender and wisped the colours one last time. Once everything was completed, ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station so that it would lay completely flat on the blue cardstock I mounted it onto. I cut a thin border all away around the image and inked around the edges of the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy.  Then popped the image and the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the base card. I added in a some sea shells from Dress It Up – Beach Collection and Craftin’ Desert Divas – Seashells Sequence. I just removed the button portion and then used glue dots to attach to the card.

Stamp:  Wade – S132  (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Summer’s Day Saying – L031 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Evergreen Bough and Brushed Corduroy

Birthday Dragon and Fireman


Hi There,

Sharing a card that I made for my older brother’s birthday this year. He’s a fireman and we are all very proud of him. Thought I’d make him a humorous card this year.

On the front, I used stamp from High Hopes – Warm Wishes S106.

Here is a close-up:

Stamped image with Memento – Tuxedo Black and coloured in with a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noir Markers.

Sentiment is from My Creative Time – Make A Wish.

Die cuts around sentiment – Craftin Desert Diva’s – Crazy Stitched Frames.

Die cuts around dragon – Lawn Fawn Zig Zag Rectangle Stackables – Item #LF135.

Background paper – Party Girl by Samantha Walker (flip side).

For the inside I typed up my own sentiment on the computer and then cut around it and attached it to the card.

Fireman is from Kit and Clowder September 2016 monthly markers class. Stamp is Fireman Luka by La La Land Crafts and was coloured in with Copics.

 

Hope your like it!
