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.
