Eek! You’re How Old???


Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made for my sister-in-law whose nickname is “Kitty”. I have a lot of fun trying to come up with new creations with cats for her birthday each year. This year, I decided to use Going Catty – DP1021 (Clearly Whimsy Stamps), for my main image on the front of the card. Shown below is how it looked before I placed the die cut from Peek A Boo Poppers (YNSD219) – (#Your Next Die) over top of it.

To create the die-cut, I first used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the main image and then again to cut out the pop-out die cut using Echo Park Paper Co. – Imagine That. I then added glue all around the outside of the circle and glued the two pieces together as shown below.

I created a card base 5.5″ x 4.25″ and then mounted paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe. I popped up the circle previously cut out with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I used the sentiment from the same Whimsy Stamp Set. I embossed it using VersaMark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I cut it out using Ribbon End Dies – My Creative Time. Lastly, I edged around all of the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. Shown below is the card with the pop-up closed.

This is the front of the card with the pop-up open.

On the inside of the card, I used the image from Birthday Critters – 30-466 (Penny Black) and sentiment from
Whatnot Sentiments Set Twelve – CYNS638 (#Your Next Stamp).

All images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI.

Sweet Birthday Dreams


Welcome Dreamerland Fans!

Some of you may be new to my blog since Dreamerland Crafts is introducing the 2019 design team and today is my day! I was so excited to be asked to join the Dreamerland team this year.

For my card, I thought the little boy hugging his pillow with his little kitten on his back was adorable! It made me think of making a birthday card with him sleeping and dreaming about all of his wishes coming true.

Dreamerland Crafts – Birthday 08  was used to create the sentiment and  Dreamerland Crafts – ZZZ was used for the image.

 

Here is a close-up of the little boy image:

To make the card, I first die cut the image from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and die cut from Spellbinders Labels 17. Then I stamped the image onto it using my MISTI (Most Incredible Stamping Tool) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Copics were then used to colour the image. I chose a starry background to represent night time for his dreaming! This was die cut with Spellbinders Labels 17 as well and then edged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. Sentiment from Dreamerland Crafts – “ZZZ” was then stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heated with Marvy Heat Embossing Tool.

For the sentiment, I used the die cut from My Creative Time – MCT 224. Sentiment was stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heated with Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough around the border of the die cut.

Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Shabby Shutters was used for edging around the card.

Both the main image and Sentiment were popped up with  3M VHB 2-sided tape.
