Love and Cake!


Sharing a birthday card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Chef Gnome – Cake from the new June 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “If we are what we eat, well, I’m pretty sweet!” and “If the cake fits, eat it!”. My mom always made our birthdays very special by creating special cake designs every year for each of our birthdays growing up. As a child, I never liked cake, but my mom used to wrap some change into tin foil and hide it in the cake. When all of my friends left, I would take a knife and cut through the cake to get all of the change out to put into my piggy bank. LOL! Unfortunately for me, I developed a sweet tooth when I got older and met my husband who has a really big sweet tooth. Only difference is he manages to keep the weight off. LOL!

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. I added some Wink of Stella – Clear to the icing and then I fussy cut around the coloured image. Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Die-Namics MFT-489 PCD Fishtail Figs STX dies, I die cut the sentiment and also some Aqua cardstock.

The 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base was created using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardsstock. I cut the patterned paper from Echo Parks Paper Co. – Birthday Wishes to the size of 5.5″ x 3.5″ and attached it to the centre of the base using double-sided tape. Two .5″ strips were cut from Yellow Cardstock and then put through my Xyron with one strip attached at the top and one strip on the bottom of the card. The Aqua die cut was added to the right side using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mustard Seed was used to ink around all of the edges of the card. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the image and the sentiment and popped them both up onto the background. YNS Gumdrops – Celebration Sparkly Gumdrops were added to the top and bottom strips. Lastly, to finish off my card, I ran Art Impresisons – 5335 – Kitchen Mini Dies through the Anna Griffin Empress Mini die cutting machine using Crafter’s Companion Luxury Cardstock – Silver. I ran the 2 pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached them both to the sentiment tag.

Birthday Hi!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Just Cruisin’ – SLF022 for the image and Just Motorin’ By – G309 for the sentiment. The gnomes are out again and this time their motoring by with a birthday “Hi!” for you.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. To create my background sky, I cut the Echo Parks Paper Co. – Birthday Wishes cardstock to the size of 5.5″ x 1.75″. With Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow – 6″ x 6″, I made 3 cuts. 5.5″ x .75″, 5.5″ x 1.25″ and with my Cuttlebug and Card Deco Essentials – Slimline Landscape Borders die, the tree landscape. I ran all of the pieces through my Xyron Creative Station and Xyron Create a Sticker. Using my Cuttlebug again and Recollections – Black cardstock, I die cut the road using My Favourite Things – Die-Namics – Open Road die.

The image and sentiment were both stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I fussy cut around the image and the sentiment and then added U-Line double-sided tape to pop them up onto the card later.

The card was now ready for assembly, starting at the bottom of the card, I applied the first piece of grass. I measured the distance of the road and then applied the second piece of green slightly lower than where the road would end. The sky piece was added next and then the tree scape. I used my E25 marker to make the tree trunks brown. I applied double-sided tape to the road piece and adhered it to the base. I popped up the image and the sentiment onto the background. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tumbled Glass and a dauber were used to ink around the edges of the sky to complete the card.
