Hugs!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called True Friendship – D18020 for the main image and sentiment. It’s always great to see our friends and give them a big hug. Now, it’s wonderful that more and more of my family and friends are getting their 2nd Covid shots, so we will all be able to hug each other again when we see each other. Have you given someone a hug today?

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I die cut the aqua and pink layers using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Rectangle Die Set. I trimmed off the loops and line pattern to create a slim border out of the pink cardstock. I applied liquid glue on the the back of the aqua design and adhered it directly to the base card. Next, I applied some double-sided foam tape to the back of the pink rectangle and placed it on  top of the aqua die cut.

For the main image, I first die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. Next, using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto this and coloured it in with Copic markers. I stamped a second image onto regular copy paper and fussy cut around the image by hand to create a mask. This I placed over top of the coloured image of the 2 little girls. I was able to create the cloudy sky using the stencil from Heffy Doodle – Cloudy Skies, a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China and a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush. The grass base was created with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn, Lawn Fawn – Slimline Grassy Hillside Stencils and a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush. Then, I removed the mask and added in a little more texture to the grass using the Copics listed below.

To create the “Hugs” sentiment, I first ran some black cardstock through my Xyron Create a Sticker. Then using the die-cut from Sugar Script – Hugs, I cut it out 4 times to create a raised image. Since, I had already made stickers out of them, it was easy to peel off the backing and layer them on top of each other. I layered the first 3 and then on the last layer, I first applied Stickles – Black Diamond to it and set it aside to dry. Once, it was dry, I added it as the top layer. I just loved how it had that added sparkle. LOL!

To complete my card, I applied some liquid glue to the back of the coloured image and then adhered it directly to the pink layer. I peeled the backing off of my bottom layer of “Hugs” and applied it directly to the coloured image.

Polar Bear and Friend!!


Sharing this adorable image called Polar Bear and Friend from KLM Digital Designs today from the January release. This set comes with 3 sentiments, “You are Amazing”, “You’re My Sunshine on a Rainy Day” and “Best Friends Forever”, which I used on my card.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers. The sentiment was brought into Microsoft Word.  I imported the shape within Microsoft Word and used a weight of 3 for the solid line. Then, I brought the sentiment to the front and centred it in the middle of the shape. I printed this out on Recollections White cardstock and then just fussy cut around it.

I used AC White paper to create the base shape of the card 12″ x 6″. I scored the paper at 6″. I used Recollections – Blue Ombre Cardstock for the main background, cut to the same size as the base card. This was attached using double-sided tape.

Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. Penny Black – Winter Roof die was used to die cut the icicles. The snow drifts on the bottom of the card were die cut using dies from Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders. Once the icicles and snow drifts were die cut, I used the Tattered Lace die cut again so that everything would layer to the shape of the smaller rectangle. I used my Cuttlebug and Cuttlebug – Snow Dots stencil twice to create the texture to the larger rectangle. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel was added to the icicles and front layer of snow. Stickles – Diamond was used to add texture to the back snow drift. Once everything was dry, I inked around all of the outside edges of the snow, rectangular shapes and main background with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch.

To assemble the card, I used double-sided tape to attach the large rectangle shape directly to the base card. The smaller rectangle shape was assembled separately, then attached to the larger rectangular shape using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Tombo glue was used to add the icicles and layers of snow to the smaller rectangluar shape. The image and sentiment were popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To complete the card, Stickles – Diamond was added below the bear to create a shadow and also some streaks along the snow.

Friends Together


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing an inspirational card that I made using Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS 19096 to create the little scenes and also for the sentiment. I wanted to show a variety of scenes that you could make with this cute set and so for the first time for me ever, I created this little flip card.

Panel 1 – Bears hugging in the rain.

Panel 2: The rain has stopped and there is a beautiful rainbow for the little couple.

Panel 3 – The sun has come out and is now beaming.

Panel 4: I just love this adorable sentiment and it finishes off the little story of the 2 little bears hugging each other through all of the different types of weather.

Here is the flip card in action.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. DCWV – Pocket Blossom was cut to the same size and using double-sided tape was attached to the base card. Then, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used to ink around all of the edges. I die cut X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and dies from Lawn Fawn – Flippin’ Awesome. I used the largest square of the die set in order to have more room to create the scenes. The larger square was die cut using Recollection – White paper using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The die-cut for the mechanism of the Flip Card was also from Lawn Fawn – Flippin’ Awesome. So easy to use. I love this die set.

I created a mask of the bears so that I could add in the different elements on each panel. All of the images were coloured in with Copic Markers. For the rain, Memento – Bahama Blue ink was used. For the sunbeams, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Summer Sunshine, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Yummy Yellow and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Starburst Stencil were used.

Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink was used to stamp the sentiment and then Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder was applied. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat up the embossing powder.

Once all of the panels were completed, I die cut the sparkly blue paper using Lawn Fawn – Flippin’ Awesome – Add-On dies. The flipping mechanism was then attached to the sparkling blue paper. This was then attached directly to the base of the card.

Simple Pleasures of Life


Today I’m sharing Friends with Nature (KLM Digital Designs) image and sentiments from KLM Digital Designs new release.  Sometime we have to just sit back and relax and enjoy the beauty of nature surrounding us. That’s what these 2 little friends are doing on this bright summer’s day.

The main image and sentiment were printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using a HP Printer. The main image was coloured in with Copic markers. Then a second image image was printed out onto regular copy paper and my Brother Scan and Cut was used to cut directly around the image so that it could be used as a mask. I have a magnetic cutting board, so I placed the close-cropped image overtop of my coloured image with small magnets. Then a cloud stencil, which I had created using Avery Elle’s Pierced Clouds Die and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used to create the clouds in the blue sky. After colouring the grass, a little piece of rag and some rubbing alcohol were used to create the texture in the grass. Once the colouring was completed, a Pigma Micron 005 black marker was used to outline the main image and make the lines a little thicker.

For the main background, I used a white card base of 6″ x 6″. Momenta – Cardstock was used for the main background, cut at the same size as the base and then inked all around the 4 edges with Kraftin’ Kimmie – Purple Pansy Ink. Then a purple ribbon was added. The background paper was then mounted onto the base card using 2-sided tape.

For the sentiment, I used My Creative Time – More Stitched Edges and Cuttlebug to die cut around it. I die-cut the coloured image with My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Then both the sentiment and the coloured image were edged around on all sides using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint to give the illusion that it was mounted onto gold paper.

Both the image and sentiments were popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card.
