A Little Behind!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made belated birthday card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Henriettas Backside – Q035 for the image and Sorry I’m – FLL031 for the sentiment. Like Henrietta, I get so busy sometimes, that I forget to send out my birthday cards on time.  This little chickie has now given me an excuse for being late. LOL!

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 Echo Park Paper Co. – It’s Your Birthday – 6″ x 6″ paper to be the same size as the base and adhered it with double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, I die cut some golden yellow cardstock using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the square and popped it up onto the centre of the card. Using my Cuttlebug again, I die cut Forever In Time – Texture Rouge cardstock with Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies. I added some U-Line double-sided tape and popped this up into the centre of the last square. Lastly, using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine, I die cut the patterned paper using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Once again, I added U-Line double-sided tape and popped up the square into the centre of the previous one.

The image and sentiment were both stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I fussy cut around the image and ran it through my Xyron Creative Station to create a sticker. I attached this to Scrapbook.com – Playful Smooth Cardstock and then fussy cut around again leaving a small border. Using my Copic markers E25 ad E23, I added some colour under the feet. With my Empress machine again and Poppystamps – Christmas Quotes die, I die cut the sentiment. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Wild Honey was used to ink around the edges. I added some U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment and popped them up onto the Jean patterned paper to complete the card.

Toad-ally In Love!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Toad-ally In Love – M127  for the image and sentiment. I toad-ally love this sweet image because it can be used for both Valentine’s Day, an Anniversary or just to let someone know that you love them.

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″ x 5″. I used Picket Fence – Blending Brushes, Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Festive Berries, Fired Brick and Barn Door and Lawn Fawn – Lots of Hearts Background Stencils to create my card background. Using Lawn Fawn – Valentine’s Hearts Border and my Cuttlebug, I die cut some Craft Smith – Hot Buy – Green and Forever In Time – Texture Rouge cardstock and adhered the 2 pieces together with some glue. I did this twice and then glued the 2 finished pieces to the base card. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I then die cut it using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. The image was coloured in and popped up onto the background using U-line douhble-sided tape. I applied some glue onto the backs of 3 of the pre-cut hearts and placed them onto the base background 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.

Happy Xmas Couple!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Happy Together – TT007 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Holiday All Year – H200 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This month High Hopes Rubber Stamps is celebrating Christmas in July! Have you started your Christmas cards yet for this year?

To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from AC White Cardstock cut and scored to be 6″ x 6″. I inked around the edges of American Crafts – “Holiday” paper cut to the same size with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint. Then I applied it directly to the base card with double-sided tape. The larger oval was die cut using my Cuttlebug, Forever In Time – Texture Rouge paper and Gina Marie Designs – Big and Little Pierced Chain Oval Layered Dies. Using VersaMark ink, I inked around all of the edges of the oval and then applied Stampendous Stamp-n Stuff – Gold Tinsel and heat embossed it with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. This was then applied directly to the base card using Forever In Time – Double-sided foam tape. I die cut the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper using oval dies from the same set and Whimsy Stamps – Bookmark and Tags Die Set was used to die cut Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper.

The image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the smaller oval. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. The sentiment is actually 2 lines, but I wanted it to fit inside the gift die, so I used Scotch tape to mask off the words I didn’t want to show each time. I used my MISTI to do the stamping and Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder to emboss it. I used my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to emboss the powder. I cleaned off the stamp and then repositioned it again, repeating the previous steps. I did this 4 times. To finish off the sentiment give box, I applied some VersaMark ink to the bow and around all of the edges of the die cut. Next, I added Stampendous Stamp-n Stuff – Gold Tinsel embossing powder and heat embossed everything using my heating tool.

To assemble the card, I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the coloured image and Forever In Time – Double-sided foam tape to the back of the sentiment and applied them both to the card. To finish everything off and give it a little bit of sparkle, I added some dots on the holly using Stickles – Xmas Red.
