Good Times!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Bird Song – TDG016  for the main image and Good Times – FDG014 for the sentiment. These little birdie friends know how to whistle a tune. Unfortunately, I myself never mastered how to whistle! I’ve tried over the years, but just can’t seem to do it. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I used Scrapbook.com – Brights Smooth Cardstock for the background paper. This paper is great because it’s already cut to size which makes it so easy. I applied it to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Your Next Die – Stitched Frame Snowfall Hill die set, I die cut the centre piece from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the frame from Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and the sentiment onto Recollections – White cardstock. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some Stickles – Diamond and Stickles – Waterfall to the parts of the snow to make it sparkly. Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen was used to create the snow in the sky. To make the eyes stand out a little more, I used Sakura Glaze – Black and then added a white dot using Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen. Once the stickles were dry, I turned the coloured image and frame over and taped them together on the back with some Scotch tape to keep the 2 pieces together. U-line double-sided tape was then applied and I turned it over again and popped it up onto the card. The sentiment was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider. I inked around the edges with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, added U-Line double-sided tape to the top half of the sentiment and added it on top of the image. Lastly I added some YNS Gumdrops – White Sugar and Sparkle to complete the card.

Santa Candy Cane


Today, I’m featuring this adorable Santa image from Conie Fong Art called Holiday Gnomes Bundle By Conie Fong.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 5.5″. For the background, I cut Craft Smith – Peppermint Twist paper to the same size as the base card and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Candied Apple. I adhered this to the base card with double-sided tape. AC – Green cardstock was die cut with my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint was used to ink around all of the edges and it was popped up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape.

The image using HP High Quality Grayscale was printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter were added to the brim of the hat and pompom. Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear was added in parts at the bottom for snow and WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter was applied. The hat, pompom and snow were all then heat embossed using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Stickles – Crystal was also added to the snow to add a little more sparkle. Lastly, using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, I added snow to the background sky. The finished image was popped up onto the green cardstock using U-Line double-sided tape and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Christmas Dots were added to complete the card.

Today, I’m featuring this adorable dragon image from Lee Holland Art called Reindeer Antlers Christmas Dragon. Thank you Lee Holland Art for sponsoring us and having such amazing fun designs to choose from. I love all of your little dragons.

 

For the base card, I used AC Cardstock – White and cut it and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. For the background, I cut Creative Memories – Mermaid Cove Designer Paper to the same size as the base card. The image using HP High Quality Grayscale was printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies, the printed image and Hot Buy – Recollections Ombre Brights Paper were both die cut. The sentiment was stamped using my Misti, VersaMark Ink and sentiment stamps from Lawn Fawn – “Offset Sayings – Christmas” and Lawn Fawn “Winter Skies”. Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder was applied to the stamped sentiments and then heat set with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

I cut the sentiment down to be 3-3/8″ x 1-2/8″ and then used W R Memory Keepers – Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to create .25″ corners. Using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I went around all of the edges of the cuts with the exception of the image die cut. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow in the sky and a combination of Stickles – Crystal, Stickles – Waterfall and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff which was applied prior to the Stickles being added.

The card was now ready to be assembled. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the coloured image and cut frame to pop them up. I doubled up the tape for behind the sentiment. The base paper was applied directly to the card base using double-sided tape. I peeled off the tape from the backings of the elements and popped them all up onto the base card to finish it off.

Free Broom Rides!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Free Broom Rides – TT017 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Wicked – FF052 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Wouldn’t you love to go on a magical broom for a ride? I know I would.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 5.5″. I cut the background paper from Echo Park – I Love Halloween paper pad to be the same size as the base and inked around the edges and onto the paper using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. I applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and orange cardstock. Using black cardstock I cut another piece to the size of 5.5″ x 1.25″. I applied this to the base using double-sided tape. I inked around the orange die cut with a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the orange die cut and applied it to the base.

The image and sentiment were then stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. The sentiment was die cut with my Cuttlebug and Whimsy – Quick Strips Die Set dies. I inked around the edges and on top by first using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin with a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and then around the edges again, this time using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. To finish off the card, I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment and popped them both up.

Polar Bear and Friend!!


Sharing this adorable image called Polar Bear and Friend from KLM Digital Designs today from the January release. This set comes with 3 sentiments, “You are Amazing”, “You’re My Sunshine on a Rainy Day” and “Best Friends Forever”, which I used on my card.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers. The sentiment was brought into Microsoft Word.  I imported the shape within Microsoft Word and used a weight of 3 for the solid line. Then, I brought the sentiment to the front and centred it in the middle of the shape. I printed this out on Recollections White cardstock and then just fussy cut around it.

I used AC White paper to create the base shape of the card 12″ x 6″. I scored the paper at 6″. I used Recollections – Blue Ombre Cardstock for the main background, cut to the same size as the base card. This was attached using double-sided tape.

Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. Penny Black – Winter Roof die was used to die cut the icicles. The snow drifts on the bottom of the card were die cut using dies from Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders. Once the icicles and snow drifts were die cut, I used the Tattered Lace die cut again so that everything would layer to the shape of the smaller rectangle. I used my Cuttlebug and Cuttlebug – Snow Dots stencil twice to create the texture to the larger rectangle. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel was added to the icicles and front layer of snow. Stickles – Diamond was used to add texture to the back snow drift. Once everything was dry, I inked around all of the outside edges of the snow, rectangular shapes and main background with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch.

To assemble the card, I used double-sided tape to attach the large rectangle shape directly to the base card. The smaller rectangle shape was assembled separately, then attached to the larger rectangular shape using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Tombo glue was used to add the icicles and layers of snow to the smaller rectangluar shape. The image and sentiment were popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To complete the card, Stickles – Diamond was added below the bear to create a shadow and also some streaks along the snow.

Reading Away The Afternoon!


Today, I’m featuring a CAS card I made using Reading Away The Afternoon – D19043  from Dreamerland Crafts.  These 2 little friends are enjoying a wonderful day just relaxing and sharing time together! There’s nothing like holding a real book in your hands. I know that today there a lot of e-books, but I’m old fashioned and still love to sit back and relax and hold onto a real book. How about yourself? Do you prefer a real book or e-books?

To make this card I used a white base card from “Studio g” of 5″ x 5″. The sentiment was stamped directly to the base using my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Reading Lexi stamp. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

The background and image were die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies. I adhered the larger die cut directly to the base using double-sided tape.

I stamped the image onto the smaller die-cut and then stamped it again on some Post-it note to create a mask. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used along with stencils I created from Avery Elle – Pierced Cloud Die. Then the grass was added in. To create texture on the grass, I used some rubbing alcohol and a piece of old rag with some ridges on it.

Once the background was completed, I coloured in the main image with Copic markers. The grass had also been coloured in with the same markers. The image was then popped up onto the base using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Happy Trick or Treating!


It’s Wednesday, and today I’m sharing a CAS card using Witchy Poo with Kitty Frame – P120 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Trick or Treat Greeting – H231 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Witchy Poo and Kitty are looking out to see all of the wonderful little trick or treaters coming to visit them for their treats! What are you dressing up as this year?

To make the card, I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ cards base. My Mind’s Eye – Dolled Up – 6″ x 6″ was cut to the same size and adhered to the base card with double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Walnut Stain ink was used to edge across the bottom of the card. The image was stamped and then coloured in with Copic Markers. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and then used a black marker to go around all of the edges.

The sentiment was stamped and then die cut with Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin and a black marker were used to ink all of the 4 sides of the sentiment.

The coloured image and sentiment were popped up onto the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and some stickers were add for embellishments.

Beautiful Mindset


Today I’m sharing a CAS card that I made using  Nesting Bird (KLM Digital Designs).  This image from KLM Digital Designs new August release comes with 3 beautiful sentiments “Create Your Own Sunshine” and “Hope You Have A Beautiful Day” and the one I’ve featured with my card. These sentiments and stamp could be used for an Inspirational or Birthday Card! I just love the feeling of peace that this image gives me.

The image and sentiment were printed out with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using High Quality Grayscale. This prevents the image from smearing when you go to colour it in. The image and sentiment were die cut with my Cutttlebug and dies from Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider. The base of the card is 5.5″ x 5.5″. I cut some Momenta – Cardstock at the same size. To go around the background paper and die cuts, a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint marker was used. This helps give the illusion that it is mounted on gold paper. I adhered the background directly to the base card with glue so that I could move it into place easier.

The image was coloured in with Copic markers and for the eye of the bird a Sakura Glaze – Black pen was used. Then, the completed image was glued directly on top of the background. The sentiment was popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To finish off the card, some Kraftin’ Kimmie – Rainy Day Dots were added.

The Song of Birds


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Bluebird – TLF015 from High Hopes Rubber Stamps new release for the main image and Kiss of the Sun – H223 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I just fell in love with this image and sentiment and knew it was the perfect combination for a slim line card.

Closer Look: Blue Bird

Closer Look: Poem

For my card this week, I stamped the images and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The main image was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider. The sentiment was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. Once all of the colouring was completed, I went around all of the die cuts with a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen.

I decided to make this a slim line card starting out with a white card base sized at 8.75″ x 4″. I just received some new Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders and just had to try them out. So I cut some Monte Marte – Watercolour Book – 190 GSM paper the same size and started playing. This background is the one that I decided to go with. I just loved the way it picked up some of the same colours as the flowers. The powder was easy to use. You just sprinkle some powder on the paper and spritz with water. You can’t really make it out in the photo, but the paper actually has a beautiful pearlesque look to it. I also went around all of the sides of the base with the Sharpie pen as well. I then popped up the sentiment and coloured image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added some embellishments.

When I went to decorate the little flower embellishments with Stickles – Yellow, some accidentally went onto my background paper.  I decided I really liked the look and then just added it everywhere using the tip of my stylus.

Get Well Chick!!!


Welcome OCS Fans!

Today is Wednesday and I’m sharing a Get Well Card where this little chick is floating in to send well wishes from the latest High Hopes Get Well Release! The stamp is called Get Well Chick by High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

I started out by using my Cuttelbug and die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using the dies from Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider. Next I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black and my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool. I used Copic Markers to colour in the image and then created my own sky and clouds for the background.

Blooming Friends!


Welcome OCS Fans!

Today is Wednesday and Spring is in the air! The snow has finally melted and now I can’t wait for the flowers to start blooming and adding some colour to our yard and other yards around us!

For today’s card I’m sharing Blooming Friends by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I’m pretty sure this little girl and hedgehog are probably talking about the beautiful flowers and what a gorgeous spring day it is outside! I coloured in the card with Copic Markers and to finish the scene, I added in some clouds and made the grass look like she was up on a hilltop.

Hope you like it and have a wonderful spring!
