Love Every Little Moment


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Mix and Match Clear Stamps (DC19095) (Dreamerland Crafts)!  Love the images for this stamp. There are so many different scenes that can be created. I chose to do a night scene with the 2 best friends sharing the serenity of the night sky.

To make this card, I first die cut some Bristol paper and then drew in the hills with light pencil and traced around the stamps to get the general idea of placement. I created a masked image of the bear and bunny using Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and Post-It Note for the hills and cut them both out. Next I erased all of the lines so that you could barely see them and stamped the bear and the bunny image directly onto the Bristol Paper. Next, I mounted the mask of the characters and hills that I had cut out previously over top of the stamped images so that they would be protected while I coloured in the sky.

To do the sky I used a mixture of Tim Holtz inks listed below and PrismaColor pencils. Then I blended all of the colours together using Gamsol and a blending paper stump. I repeated the process with the PrismaColor pencils several times.

Once the sky was completed, I removed the stencil for the grass and proceeded to colour it in using the same technique that I had used for the sky.

Lastly, I removed the mask for the bear and bunny and coloured them in. I added in some small trees using a Black Prismacolor pencil.

I popped my finished image, back into my MISTI again and stamped the sentiment using VersaMark. I also stamped in the stars in the sky and embossed everything with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. I also used a brush and tapped some of the white embossing powder all over the sky. Then heated it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Lastly, I stamped and embossed the seagulls using VersaFine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I coloured them in using Black PrismaColor pencil and then added in some highlights on the wings.

I popped up the coloured image and blue cardstock with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Graduation Card


Hi There,

Sharing a graduation card that I made using Too Cute By Jessica – Graduation Pals.

Boy-Graduate

I thought this file was so cute! Used Cricut Design Space and Cricut Explore to cut out the pieces. Then ran everything through my Xyron. Used some inks to ink the edges and put the card together on blue Recollections Card Stock. Lost his little nose somehow after I had cut it out! LOL! So, I used the cut out to draw it in with my Zig marker and then drew him a little mouth.

Used pink chalk for the cheeks.

The sentiment is from My Creative Time – Happy Everything Stamp Set. Used Versamark – Onyx black and then Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder for “graduation”.

Used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen for the eyes.

Hope you like it!

Valentine’s Card for Parents


Hi There,

Back to share another card that I made for Valentine’s Day. Since my parents live so far away, I thought these 2 digi stamps from Craftin Desert Diva’s would be perfect for a simple little Valentine’s card for them.

I brought the 2 digi’s into Microsoft Word and then duplicated them 3 more times for a total of 4 images each. This allowed me to fussy cut the images after colouring the various parts and then layer them to give the characters some depth. I printed the images out onto “100% Recycle Paper, Robert Bateman, Cover Series, Artist Quality Sketchbook” paper and then used PrismaColor Premier Pencils and Gamsol blending medium to colour the images. I highlighted the eyes with Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and the noses with Gelly Roll Sakura #6 Pen. A touch of Clear – Wink of Stella on the small hearts.

The 2 digis that I used were:

On the Front: “Little Lovelies Bear with Mailbox”

VPSFront

Here is a closer look.

I embossed the “Happy Valentine’s Day” with Versamark and Ranger Embossing Powder – Rich Red.

On the inside is the digi called: “Little Lovelies Love Letter Bear”.

I think the first photo shows off the layers better. This is the same image. Just shown at 2 different angles.

Here is the close up.

For the background paper I used K&Company 2-sided Valentine’s paper. I cut it out with Spellbinders Postage Stamps S4-348 and my Sizzix BigKick machine.

The little sentiment on the front is also from K&Company.

Hope you like it!
