Fragrant Garden


Today, I’m featuring a card I made using Kit and Clowder September 2020 – Markers – Fragrant Garden class from Kit and Clowder.  I love these monthly classes by Alyce Keegan. She has taught me so much about colouring over the past few years. Her lessons are fantastic as she breaks down everything into small chapters and they are easy to follow. Here is my finished image from the September class. The image was coloured in with Copic markers.

I mounted it onto a white base card from of 5.5″ x 4.25″ with double-sided tape.

Hope you like it and have a great week!

Saying Hi!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS 19093 (Dreamerland Crafts) for the images and sentiment that I used to create this little scene. I just love how you can used these little stamps to create a variety of scenes. To colour my card this week, I thought I would try using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I normally colour with Copic markers, so this was a bit of a challenge for me.

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″ by Hot Buy – Recollections – Watercolour Solids. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the background paper using my MISTI, VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. The powder was then heat embossed with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

Strathmore – Watercolor Paper – 140 lb. was die cut using my Cuttlebug and dies from My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. For the images, I used my MISTI and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Wicked Black Ink.  I created a mask of the bear’s head using some Post-it Note paper and set it aside. To create the scene it was done in stages. First the bear and the little flower pots were stamped. Then the mask created earlier was put overtop of the little bear as show below. The poles, clothesline and grass were then stamped next.

Lastly, the T-Shirts, birds and clouds were stamped. Once this was completed, the mask for the bear was removed. The images were coloured in with the colour recipe listed below and Sakura Glaze – Black was used for all of the little eyes. Once the colouring was all completed, the finished scene was mounted directly to the base with 2-sided tape. Kraftin’ Kimmie – Lovely Dots were added to put a finishing touch on the card.

Time to Smell the Flowers!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Daffodil Bunny – SLF006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image from the new August 2020 release and Smell The Flowers – G189 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This adorable little bunny is taking time out to smell the flowers. We have a really nice garden of flowers that my husband takes care of. I’m not a green thumb at all. LOL! It’s always nice to take a moment and enjoy the beauty of them.

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 6″ x 6″. The base background was also cut at 6″ x 6″ using Craft Consortium – Cottage Garden paper and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. I just thought this paper went so well with this adorable image. I added the 2 colours of ribbon with some 2-sided tape and then adhered the entire background paper to the base with 2-sided tape.

The scalloped circle and inside image circle were both die cut using my Cuttlebug and Craftin Desert Diva’s Stitched in Circle Dies. The circle in between the 2 of them was die cut with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles. The edges of the large scalloped circle were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. For the sentiment, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies were used. The die was larger in depth, so I just die cut one side and then turned it around and only put it part way through my Cuttlebug to cut the other edge. It too, was then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. The image was coloured with Copic Markers.

To assemble the remainder of the card, the mid circle was attached directly to the large scalloped circle and then popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The image and sentiment were popped up on top with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape as well.

Sending Hugs and Prayers


Today I’m sharing a CAS card that I made using  Cherry Blossom Bird (KLM Digital Designs).  This image from KLM Digital Designs new release comes with 2 beautiful sentiments “Sending Hugs & Prayers” and “Sending Hugs” which could be used for an Inspirational, Get Well or Sympathy Card! I think we could all use a little hug! So I’m sending you all a virtual hug today!

For this card, I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. Then I coloured it in with Copic markers. Once the colouring was completed, I traced around all of the image with a Micron 01 Fine Liner to make the flowers and leaves pop.  I created the background surrounding the flowers using Copic YR20 and YR21. Then I used a Q-Tip and mottled the background using some rubbing alcohol and just dabbing here and there. Double-side tape was used to adhere the blue cardstock to a white base card cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″. The finished image was glued onto the card base and some Kraftin’ Kimmie Enamel Dots were added to finish it off.

Sunny Days Ahead


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Sunny Days Ahead – P004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). I searched to find colours that represented each word going around the image and found the following: Faith – Pink, Courage – Red, Hope – Blue and Victory – Purple and so this is how I coloured this image. I believe these words speak for themselves and in the days to come, we will all see the sun shining brighter days upon us all.

The card base is 5″ x 5″. I layered each of the papers and coloured image on black cardstock to pop the colours. I chose the paper of the children holding hands to represent the day when we can all get back to normal and hold hands and play together with our loved ones again. The chain link patterned paper represents how we are all linked together in doing our part to stay strong and healthy, and to give each other the hope, faith and courage to be victorious in the sunny days ahead. I popped up the final layer with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added in some black pop dots to complete this card.
