Fido’s Hallowe’en


Sharing a Hallowe’en slim line card I made today using KLM Digital DesignFido – Hallowe’en Freebie from the new October 2022 release.  Fido is all set for Trick or Treating with his little “Bee” outfit. Do you dress up your pets for Hallowe’en too?

To make my card this week, I started with a 7″ x 7″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored this at 3.5″, so that the final card base measured 3.5″ x 7″. To create my background, I die cut the haunted house and path using an Anna Griffin Empress Mini cutting Machine, Recollections – Black cardstock and Say It With Stamps – #6 Haunted House Coverplate Die. The little bats were cut from the same die set at the same time. For the yellow behind the windows I cut a solid piece using Momenta – Cardstock. I glued this into place on the back of the die cut using liquid glue. I love how the Momenta paper had the colour variations of yellow. Using the die cut as a reference as to where to place the background colours, I applied a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks for the sky listed below and Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the path with Gina K. Designs blending brushes. Once the background was coloured in, I applied glue to the back of the die cut and adhered it to the card. Using the same cutting machine again, I die cut the sentiments 3 times using scrap pieces of orange and black cardstock which I had run through my Xyron Create a Sticker first so that it would be easier to attach them on top of each other later. I pieced them all together and attached them to the card. The 3 bats were then placed around the sentiment.

The image was imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The images were coloured in and then Wink of Stella – Clear was applied to the wings to make them sparkly.  Both images were fussy cut and U-Line double-sided tape was applied to both and they were popped up onto the card to finish it off.

A Good Guy


Sharing a CAS card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Fido and Friend Male from the new September 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “Thank You for being a wonder friend” and “Every snack you bake, Every meal you bake, Every bit you take, I’ll be watching you”. I think this last sentiment is so true for our furry friends. LOL! I chose the sentiment I used on this card because I know I found my 4 leaf lucky clover and he became my wonderful, kind, caring and loving husband.

To make my card this week, I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image and sentiment were cut to be the same size as the base and the image was coloured in. This was then applied to the base card using double-sided tape. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Lawn Fawn Cuts – Lucky Clovers. I ran this die cut through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to the card to finish it off.

Best Friends


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Fido and Friend Girl from the new August 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “Admit it, life would be boring without me”, which is something that I always say to my husband, LOL! “Always better together” is another sentiment included with this adorable image.

The bond and love between a person and their pet is an unbreakable bond. We tend to share our happy times, hopes, dreams and sad times with them. They always listen to us and make us feel even better no matter what comes our way. We also share a lot of these times with our human best friends too, but I think our fur babies tend to know all of our secrets more than anyone.

To make my card this week, I started with a 6″ x 6″ card base using AC White cardstock. Stampin’ Up – Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper was applied to the base using double-sided tape. I cut a piece of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock to the size of 4.25″ x 5.5″. With various Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide – Speckled Egg, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink – Cracked Pistachio, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink – Salty Ocean and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink – Salvaged Patina, I created my own background that I wanted to use behind the image. Then, with my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and PinkFresh Studio Essentials – Blanket Stitched Oval, I die-cut an oval out of it and added some grass using Copic markers.

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in and then I fussy cut all around the image and used a black marker to go around all of the edges. The sentiment was also fussy cut and then I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber around the edges of it and also all around the sides of the card. Yellow ribbon and aqua ribbon were put together by first using double-sided tape to add the aqua portion to the yellow portion. Using my Xyron Create a Sticker, I ran the combined ribbon through it and then applied the ribbon to card, cutting off the excess on either side. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the die cut, image and sentiment pieces and then they were all popped up onto the card. Finally, YNS Gumdrops – Sugar Rush Sparkly were added to complete the card.

Sunflower Puppy


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Sunflower Fido from the new July 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “Always look on the bright side!” and “Like Wildflowers, You must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.” I’ve always been mesmerized by the beauty of sunflowers and how tall they grow. Of course, eating sunflower seeds is also a lot of fun too!

I created a 6″ x 6″ card base using AC White Cardstock cardstock. Stampin’ Up – Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper was applied to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Gina Marie Designs – Ric Rac Nested Circle Dies, I die-cut Stampin’ Up – Simply Marbleous Designer Paper. With Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch and a small sponge dauber, I inked around all of the edges of the card base and the die cut.

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. After, I finished colouring the image, I fussy cut all around it and used a black marker to go around all of the edges. I used my cutter to cut around the sentiment and then ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then placed it onto Forever In Time – Sky cardstock. I cut the paper again leaving a slim border around the sentiment. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the ric rac die cut.  U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the die cut and sentiment piece and both were popped up onto the card. Finally, YNS Gumdrops – Circus Fun Matte Gumdrops were added to complete the card.

Lucky Dog!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Fido’s Home from the new January 2022 release. We grew up having dogs in our family. They were all spoiled and loved very much! They may have thought they were the lucky ones, but deep down, I think we were.

I created the base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. For the background, I used Kraftin’ Kimmie – Pawprints Stencil, a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pumice Stone to create the paw prints. For the hearts, I used the same stencil, a small foam brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door. With my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out, I die cut the red square from Forever In Time – Texture Rouge cardstock.

I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut the image using Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies and the sentiment with My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties. I inked around the edges of the sentiment die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door and popped it up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and the sky was created with Lawn Fawn – Cloudy Stencil and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and a mixture of Copic blue markers. The completed image was popped up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape to finish it off.
