Love One An-udder!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Anniversary card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Cow Hugs – TT136 for the image and Love An Udder – F205 for the sentiment. Love this adorable combination and thought it would be great for an Inspirational card or an Anniversary card!

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″. Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Down on the Farm cardstock background paper was cut to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and adhered directly to the base using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot and a finger dauber were used to ink around all of the edgs of the card. Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and dies from Whimsy Stamps – Wavy Nested Frame Dies Set, I die cut one pattern out of Recollections – Black cardstock and a smaller cut from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using PinkFresh Studio – Slim Stripes dies and my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine, I die cut some black stripes using the half-inch die from Recollections – Black cardstock. I added some U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the 2 black pieces and popped them up onto the patterned background. Using scisssors, I cut off the excess from the black stripe after it was adhered to the base.

I stamped the main image and sentiment onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I used a Sakura Glaze – Black pen, and Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to create the eyes. After the image was coloured in, I added some U-Line double-sided tape to it and popped it up onto the black die cut. Using my machine again, I die cut the sentiment using Gina K Designs – Sentiment Strips. This was popped up with Scrapbook Adhesives – Black 3D Foam Strips onto the black stripe. To finish off my card, I added 2 little button cows on either side of the sentiment from Dress It Up – In the Barnyard and Dress It Up – Mooove It.

Hedgies Happy Birthday!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Hedgie Stack – TDG027 for the image and Mini Sentiment Set #1 – HLL001 for the sentiment. These little hedgies are excited to wish someone special a very Happy Birthday!

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 5.5″. I cut the Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold cardstock background paper to the size of 5.5″ x 5.5″ and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. AITOH Origami – Print Chiyogami – Butterflies paper was cut to the size of 5.25″ x 5.25″ and glued on top of the gold paper. Using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and PinkFresh Essentials: Folk Edge Squares, I die cut another square from Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I popped up the gold die cut onto the floral background using U-Line double-sided tape. I stamped the main image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black.

The image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen to create some more texture in the fur by just dabbing it everywhere. I’m hoping that it looks like little spikes at the end of their fur. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the coloured image and popped it up onto the gold die-cut. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using a 3/4″ punch, I punched out the circle surrounding the sentiment. Then, using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, I die cut a slightly larger circle out of a scrap piece of gold paper from Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it directly to the gold circle. Using some U-Line double-sided tape, I popped it up onto the coloured image. Lastly, to complete my card, I added in some PinkFresh Studio – Essentials Jewel Mix and flowers gems from the Dollar Store.

Somebunny Loves You!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Bunny Blossoms – TDG024 for the image and Some Bunny – FDG032 for the sentiment. I just love this super adorable little bunny taking time to smell the flowers. Spring is here, but the winter snow keeps playing tricks on us still. LOL! We just had another snow storm the other day. I thought April was supposed to bring Spring showers, not Spring snow!!!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of AC Cardstock – White, cut and scored to be 6″ x 6″. I cut the Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock background paper to the size of 6″ x 6″ and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Crafts Designer Paper – 02-3093268 was cut to the size of 5.75″ x 5.75″ and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. I applied U-Line double-double sided tape and popped the paper onto the gold backing. Using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies, I die cut another square from Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I popped up the gold square onto the bunny background and stamped the main image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black.

The image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I though I’d go out of my comfort zone this week to create this sky with a variety of different colours. I thought it still needed something more so I added in some clouds using a PrimaColor Pencil – White. I also added in some extra fur with PrimaColor Pencil – Beige. Once, I was satisfied with the sky, I added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it and it too was popped up onto the card. The sentiment was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. I fussy cut around it and then applied it to a small piece of Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock using repositionable tape. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image with a slight border. I coloured around the circle stamped image with RV000 and then used a black marker to go all around the edges. I applied U-Line double-sided tape and popped it up onto the gold die-cut. Lastly, 2 layers of the U-Line double-sided tape were applied to the right side only of the sentiment and glue to the left and attached it to the base coloured paper to finish off the card.

Hoppy Easter Bunny!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Easter card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Carrot Patch – TDG029 for the image and Hoppy Easter! – E038 for the sentiment. We always looked forward to Easter time every year because we knew we would be colouring all of the Easter eggs with our mom in all different colours. It was always such a fun time!

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″. I die cut the background papers from Echo Park – Welcome Easter cardstock using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade was used to ink around all of the edges of both die cuts. I applied U-Line double-double sided tape and popped both papers onto the base card. Using the same set of dies, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I stamped the main image onto this die cut and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I used a black marker to add in more details to the butterflies and also to add a couple of antennas. U-Line double-side tape was applied to the back of the coloured image and it was popped up into the centre of the orange rectangle. Lastly, to finish it off, I added in a few YNS Tropical Paradise Gumdrops.

I cut the flower cardstock from Echo Park – Welcome Easter at 6″ x 1.75″ and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper to 6″ x 4.5″. I applied double-side tape and adhered both pieces directly to the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet ink was used to ink around all of the edges of the base card.

Wishing You All The Best!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Wishing You All The Best – D20010.  This little girl is on her way to bring you some Christmas Cheer!

To make this card I used a base of 6″ x 6″ using AC Cardstock – White. I cut the background paper to the same size using Recollections – Glisten and Glow paper and then using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I outlined all sides. This was added directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and dies from Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Oval, the frame was cut out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I stamped the image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the die cut and then using the Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I inked around all of the outside edges. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and then applied Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear to the fur trims for the hat and clothing. I applied WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter to the inked areas and then heat embossed everything with my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. Using 3M double-sided tape, I popped up the oval onto the main background. To finish off the card, I applied some Stickles – Golden Rod to the centres of some of the larger snowflakes.

Smell The Flowers!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Tink Picking Posies – T027 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Smell The Flowers – G189 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Most of the flowers are now in full bloom. It’s so wonderful to see all of the beautiful colours and smell the wonderful aromas of the flowers in our garden. So happy that my husband has such a green thumb and loves gardening!

To make my card this week, I stamped my image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. I stamped the image a second time onto plain copy paper and fussy cut around it to create a mask. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers were used to cut out the sentiment and background layer. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then put my mask over top of the coloured image. Using stencils that I had created earlier with Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Dies (D-05-01), I inked in the clouds using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. Once this was done, I removed the mask.

To assemble my card, I started with a base using Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes (5.5″ x 4.25″). I ran the coloured image through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it to the black cardstock. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, was applied to the back of the black frame and then it was attached directly to the base.

Just a Note!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Birdhouse #1 from the new June release for the image and sentiment. This image also comes with 2 other sentiments: “Welcome To The Neighbourhood” and “Thinking of You”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and the sentiment into Microsoft Word. I printed out the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and a second copy of the image onto copy paper using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around the image on the copy paper to create a mask using my Brother Scan and Cut.

The rectangles were die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. I fussy cut around the sentiment and inked around the yellow rectangle and sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. I placed the mask over the coloured image and added in my clouds using some stencils that I created previously using Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (D-05-01) and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn was added for the base background of the lawn.

To assemble the card, I began with a base card of The Paper Studio – Primary Simply Solids (4.25″ x 5.5″). I ran all of the elements through my Xyron Creative Station to create stickers out of them and so that they would lay completely flat when assembled. I added all of the layers directly to the base card. To finish it off, I added some CC Designs – Dragon Dreams Enamel Dots.

Card Recipe:

Tea Time!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Rose Teapot from the new June release for the image and sentiment. I have always loved tea and never liked coffee. I have a huge cupboard full of Herbal Teas and love how wonderful it tastes especially with a spoonful of natural unpasteurized honey. Spending time with my grandmother and having a cup of tea with her was always special and I still cherish those moments even though she left us for a better place a long time ago.

To make the card, I first imported the image and the sentiment into Microsoft Word. I created the green background behind the sentiment by creating a rectangle shape and moving it to the back behind it. Then I coloured the rectangle green using a custom colour of R233, G242 and B227 combined and printed out the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the sentiment onto copy paper using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it leaving a thin white border. I fussy cut around the sentiment as well and applied glue behind it and then attached it to the little sign. Then I attached the sign to some pink cardstock and fussy cut around the sign again. The background papers were all from P13 – The Four Seasons – Spring.

I cut the green patterned paper to the size of 5.75″ x 2.75″ and approximately 6″ x 3/16″ and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Bundled Sage. The pink solid patterned paper is 6″ x 3″ and the large patterned background is 6″ x 6″. The pinks were inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spun Sugar.

To assemble the card, I began with a base card of 6″ x 6″ using AC White Cardstock. Using double-side tape, I attached the large background directly to the base. Next I applied the larger pink rectangle to the main background using double-sided tape. The 2 green layers were also added using double-sided tape. For the sentiment and the image, 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the backs of each and then attached to the card. To finish it off, I added some sequins using Craftin Desert Diva’s – Sherbert.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Rose Teapot – KLM Digital Designs

Inks: HP Printer Grayscale, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Bundled Sage, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spun Sugar

Paper: Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, P13 – The Four Seasons – Spring 6″ x 6″, P13 – The Four Seasons – Spring 12″ x 12″, Pink Cardstock

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.
