Happy Father’s Day Gnomes


KLM Digital Designs released some brand new stamps this month, and today I’m sharing Dad and Kid Gnomes (KLM Digital Designs)!  This new stamp contains adorable images of a dad, his children and 3 loving sentiments for your father. This stamp allows you to create your card to represent all of your siblings with your dad or just 1 if it is a special card.

For this card, I decided to create a card from a son to his dad.

To put the card together, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the sentiment onto Hammermill Premium Colour paper.

I die cut the Hammermill paper with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set. Then using stencils that I made with Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie, I created the sky using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. For the grassy hillsides, I created stencils using Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders and Lawn Fawn – Simple Stitched Hillside Borders – Lawn Cuts. Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Bundled Sage, Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint to create the colour variations of the hills.

I coloured in the main image with copics and then fussy cut around them. Then I used a black marker to go around all of the edges. I attached the background to some AC White cardstock cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then to finish off the card, I popped up the 2 coloured images with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and placed them onto the background.

Father’s Day – Come Sail Away!


Today I’m sharing a Father’s Day card that I made using  Come Sail Away (KLM Digital Designs).  It comes with multiple sentiments, but I decided to choose the sentiment from Father Gnome and Kids & Sentiments (KLM Digital Designs). You could also use this image to make a Special birthday card, Bon Voyage or Inspirational card too!

For this card, I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. I used Copic markers to colour in the image. For the water, I used a variety of markers and created the movement of the water by just wisping them over the paper very gently. Then I added in some white caps using Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point. I did this by just dabbing the paper with tight dots of ink.

For the sand and sky, I used a special technique that I saw on-line, using a Q-Tip and Colorless blender Re-Inker to wet my background and then adding in the colours also using a Q-Tip and Copic Re-inkers. This was the first time I ever tried this and I just love how it turned out.

After the image was coloured in, I went around the edges of both the card and the image with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint. Then I mounted the image on top of the background on a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Come Sail Away (KLM Digital Designs)

Sentiment: Father Gnome and Kids & Sentiments (KLM Digital Designs)

Inks: HP Printer Grayscale, Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint, Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point

Happy Father’s Day


Sharing a card that I made for my dad for Father’s Day this year!

My dad is a magnificent carpenter and can build just about anything. He built our entire family home, my portable spinning wheel, and after building multiple miniature airplane models, decided to build a real one. He has also built many other items throughout the years.

He built his airplane in our basement along with my uncle and then had to remove a basement window and part of the front wall to get it out. LOL! It really was quite something to witness. He taught us that if you put your mind to it and you dream about it, then you could do it. Or at least try to do it.

The plane had passed inspection with flying colours and it was really a lot of fun going up into the air with him, as I love to fly too. Not a pilot, but I do love to fly! LOL!

On the front of the card I printed out the digital stamp from Lily of the Valley – The Workbench, then coloured it in with Copic markers using the lessons from Kit and Clowder Technique class taught by Alyce Keegan. I highly recommend Kit and Clowder tutorials as they have helped me come a long way in my colouring techniques over the past couple of years. She really does break it down and make it easy for you to follow.

Stamped the sentiment using Peachy Keen Stamps – PCSC-05 May 2012. Stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Ground Espresso and then heat embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Included a close-up of the image.

On the inside I printed out the digital image from The Paper Shelter – The Aviator. I then coloured in the image using my Copic markers and did the background using my Spectrum Noir markers. I also created my own sentiment for my dad.

Included a close-up of the image.

Father’s Day card for my Father-in-Law


Hi There and Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there! We went over to visit my father-in-law and family tonight and we knew ahead of time that he was going to BBQ. I thought it would be fun to make him this BBQ-ing Dragon from High Hopes Stamps and create my own sentiment inside.

Inside the card:

Stamped image High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Flame Boilin” – Q104 with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card Cardstock.

Coloured image with Copic markers.

Die cut – Die-namics – Exclusive Designs from My Favorite Things – MFT-652 – Cross-Stitch Rectangle ST and went around with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Black Soot.

Stamped background with High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Flame Boilin” – Q104 and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Then used Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fired Brick and Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Spiced Marmalade. I was hoping to make the background look like a huge flame.

Edging around card – Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Candied Apple

My father-in-law loved his card! Hope you do too!
