He Is Risen!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Easter Card using  He Lives! – R057 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and He Is Risen! – H137 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I really love the serenity of this image. Here’s hoping that we will get to spend Easter with our loved ones this year.

To make my card this week, I used AC Cardstock for my base folded at 6″ x 6″. For the main background, I used this beautiful paper from Heartfelt Creations – Flowering Dogwood Collections cut to the same size as the base and attached it using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint was used to ink around all of the edges. My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies was used to cut all of the ovals and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die Layers was used to cut the small rectangle. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber was used to ink around the large scalloped oval and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Dusty Concord was used to ink around the larger oval and small rectangle. I used 2 types of purple ribbon and ran both pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make it easier to attach them to each other and then onto the card. I used some double-sided tape and glue to adhere the larger oval to the base. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was used to add the larger oval.

I stamped the image and sentiment using Memento – Tuxedo Black and my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image using Copic markers. For the sentiment, I found the white was too bright, so I coloured over it with a soft purple Copic marker – V01. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the coloured image and placed it on top of the larger oval. For the sentiment, I doubled up on the 3M VHB – 2 sided tape before attaching it to the card.

Hoppy Valentine’s Day


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Valentine’s Card featuring Bunny Love – S054 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Hoppy Valentines – F092 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Love this adorable image and it can be used for so many different occasions, Valentine’s, which I’ve used here, Easter or even for an Anniversary card.

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the main image with Copic Markers. Then I fussy cut around it. The sentiment was die cut using Whimsy Stamps – Quick Strips Die Set – WSD330.

To create the base I began with AC Cardstock – Christmas (6″ x 6″). Then I die cut K&Company – Kelly Panacci – KP Valentine – 30-599338 paper using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. For the smaller heart, I used K&Company – Kelly Panacci – KP Valentine – 30-599345 paper and Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted dies. I also used the same dies to cut the larger heart using Recollections – Christmas Noel paper. I inked around all of the cut images with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony and also Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door.

To assemble the card, the large square was attached directly to the base using double side tape. All of the remaining layers were popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Time to Smell the Flowers!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Daffodil Bunny – SLF006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image from the new August 2020 release and Smell The Flowers – G189 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This adorable little bunny is taking time out to smell the flowers. We have a really nice garden of flowers that my husband takes care of. I’m not a green thumb at all. LOL! It’s always nice to take a moment and enjoy the beauty of them.

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 6″ x 6″. The base background was also cut at 6″ x 6″ using Craft Consortium – Cottage Garden paper and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. I just thought this paper went so well with this adorable image. I added the 2 colours of ribbon with some 2-sided tape and then adhered the entire background paper to the base with 2-sided tape.

The scalloped circle and inside image circle were both die cut using my Cuttlebug and Craftin Desert Diva’s Stitched in Circle Dies. The circle in between the 2 of them was die cut with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles. The edges of the large scalloped circle were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. For the sentiment, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies were used. The die was larger in depth, so I just die cut one side and then turned it around and only put it part way through my Cuttlebug to cut the other edge. It too, was then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. The image was coloured with Copic Markers.

To assemble the remainder of the card, the mid circle was attached directly to the large scalloped circle and then popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The image and sentiment were popped up on top with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape as well.

Stamp: Daffodil Bunny – SLF006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Happy Easter to my Gnomies!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Bunny Painter Gnome and Sentiments Digital Stamp (KLM Digital Designs)! This little Easter Gnome has all of his eggs painted up to give out for Easter. Do you still paint your eggs for Easter too?

To make the card, I printed out the image and sentiment with my HP printer using High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and then fussy cut around it and the sentiment.

For the background, I cut out a piece of Strathmore Bristol paper 5.5″ x 4.25″.  Then with a stencil that I made using Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Pierced Clouds Die, I created the sky using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. For the grass, I used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink Greens – Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, and Twisted Citron. Then I used some water and 1/4 round Sable brush and #1 Fine Liner to create the grass.

I used my Xyrons to create a sticker out of the coloured image and sentiment and then mounted the finished image onto a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using double-sided tape.

Carrot Express!!!


It’s Wednesday, and Easter is quickly approaching. So for this week, I used Carrot Express – S055 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Canadian Easter Greetings – H139 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To put this card together, I first die-cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Next, I stamped the image with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink using my MISTI to get a nice clean image. I put the die-cut back over the image again and used it for a template to get a nice clean white border. I created a mask out of the image and used the die-cut from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean to create the sky background.

I mounted the plaid paper from Recollections – Easter Paper onto a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″and then edged around the image and card with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and embossed the sentiment using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and VersaMark.

Lastly, I popped up the image onto the card using 3M – VHB 2-sided tape and added in some Kraftin’ Kimmie Pastel Krafty Dots.
