3 Stooges!


It’s Wednesday and today I’m sharing a birthday card using KLM Digital DesignThree Stooges Gnome from the new January release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Just relax and except the crazy” and “Make time for yourself”. I grew up watching “The 3 Stooges” and if these gnomes are anything like they were, you never know what’s going to happen. LOL!

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5.5″ x 5.5″ card base. I cut Echo Park – It’s Your Birthday (6″x6″ Double-Sided) designer paper to be the same size and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The printed image and Echo Park – It’s Your Birthday designer paper were both die cut using my Cuttlebug and Whimsy – Wavy Stitched Squares Die Set. I inked around the designer paper with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Black Soot and popped it onto the base using U-Line double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade was applied around all of the outer edges of the card.  The main image was coloured in with the Copic markers listed below and then popped up onto the centre of the designer paper with U-Line double sided tape. The sentiments were fussy cut and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade was applied around the edges. I wanted the larger sentiment to stand out a little more, so I first ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then adhered it to a scrap piece of Recollections – Black cardstock. I fussy cut around it again and then applied U-Line double-sided tape to both sentiments with double layers on portions of them and popped them up onto the card. Lastly, I used my Quickie Glue pen to trace around some of the spirals and dots on both designer papers and applied Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter – Crystal Fine to give it some sparkle.

Surprise Gnome!!


Sharing a birthday card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Surprise Gnome from the new December release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Let’s Celebrate!” and “Let’s party”.

I created the base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the paper and folded it to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the background paper to be the same size as the background using Echo Park – It’s Your Birthday paper and glued it to the front of the base card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was used to ink around the edges. I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. Using scissors, I fussy cut around the coloured image and sentiment. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker.  I attached this to some Aqua cardstock and fussy cut around it again. U-Line double sided tape was applied to the backs of the image and the sentiment and they were popped up onto the card. I tied some black thread to some balloon brads and then popped them up onto the card using double-sided tape.

Buddy’s Surprize!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using Buddy Bear’s Surprise – S193 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Shhh Party! – H038 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Buddy is not very good at keeping secrets though or spelling! LOL! He is however, ready to bring you presents and party on!

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I love this background party paper by Echo Park called “It’s Your Birthday”. I cut it the same size as the base card and then used 2-sided tape to attach it to the base. Then I inked around the entire outside edges of the card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet.

I used My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out to cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Then I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp the image. I coloured in the main image with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment onto some yellow cardstock with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut it out. Next, I ran both my image and sentiment through the Xyron Creative Station to turn them both into stickers. I applied both of these to some Violet cardstock and trimmed a small border. Lastly, I popped up both the image and the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
