Beautiful Day!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Winter Kitty – SDG006  for the main image and Beautiful Day – FDG013 for the sentiment. We just had a major snowfall over the last few days and this little kitty is all bundled up and ready to play!

Growing up we had a lot of snow during the winter and couldn’t wait to put on our mitts and snow boots and go out to play. We had huge snow banks in the schoolyard across the street and would toboggan down them or just slide down in our snow suits! LOL! It was sooooo much fun! Sometimes we even made big snow forts in the backyard with tables and chairs made out of ice and snow. We hardly spent anytime indoors and didn’t usually go back into the house until we had to or we were turning blue because it was so cold out, but even then we still wanted to continue playing outdoors. LOL!

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″.  I used Scrapbook.com – Rainbow Smooth Cardstock for the main background paper. It was already the same size as the base, so no cutting had to be done. To get more use out of the same paper, I had cut the oval frame using my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals first. Then, I placed the Rainbow cardstock onto the card base using double-sized tape. I die cut the square background using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and Pebbles – Winter Wonderland paper and the rectangle to the size of 4″ x 4″. The rectangle was cut from from the same paper pack to the size of 1.25″ x 4″. I inked around the edges of both shapes with a sponge dauber and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. Using double-sided tape, I placed both shapes over the pink background and hid where I cut the oval with the square. I cut out a smaller oval using the same Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I also cut out a 1.5″ circle using a circle punch. Lastly, I die cut the scalloped circle using WeR Memory Keepers – Quickutz Nesting Scallops dies and Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock oval and the sentiment onto the circle. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear to the bottom of the oval and applied WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter. I heat embossed this and added more embossing powder several times to create a thicker layer with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Then I added some Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and heat embossed it as well to puff it up. Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen was used to create the snow in the sky. Sakura Glaze – Black and Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen were used on the eyes and nose of the cat.

I inked around the edges of the large pink oval and the circle with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. I applied the coloured image directly to the pink oval and the sentiment circle to the scalloped circle using some liquid glue. Both shapes were then popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape. To completed the card and add in some extra sparkle, I applied some YNS Gumdrops – Winter Wonderland to the background patterned paper.

Good Times!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Bird Song – TDG016  for the main image and Good Times – FDG014 for the sentiment. These little birdie friends know how to whistle a tune. Unfortunately, I myself never mastered how to whistle! I’ve tried over the years, but just can’t seem to do it. LOL!

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″.  I used Scrapbook.com – Brights Smooth Cardstock for the background paper. This paper is great because it’s already cut to size which makes it so easy. I applied it to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Your Next Die – Stitched Frame Snowfall Hill die set, I die cut the centre piece from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the frame from Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and the sentiment onto Recollections – White cardstock. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some Stickles – Diamond and Stickles – Waterfall to the parts of the snow to make it sparkly. Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen was used to create the snow in the sky. To make the eyes stand out a little more, I used Sakura Glaze – Black and then added a white dot using Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen. Once the stickles were dry, I turned the coloured image and frame over and taped them together on the back with some Scotch tape to keep the 2 pieces together. U-line double-sided tape was then applied and I turned it over again and popped it up onto the card. The sentiment was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider. I inked around the edges with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, added U-Line double-sided tape to the top half of the sentiment and added it on top of the image. Lastly I added some YNS Gumdrops – White Sugar and Sparkle to complete the card.

Using U-line double-sided tape, I popped up each of the layers onto the card base.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and the sentiment onto Recollections – White cardstock. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some Stickles – Diamond to the parts of the snow to make it sparkly. Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen was used to create a starry night sky.

*******************************************************

Thank you KLM Designs for sponsoring us. Today, I’m sharing a card I made using KLM Designs –  Owl and Sentiments. I really love your adorable images and working with them.

The base was created with AC Cardstock – White cut and folded to the size of 6″ x 6″. I cut the background paper from My Mind’s Eye – Hootenanny designer paper to be the same size as the background and applied it to the base using double-sided tape. From the same paper pack, I cut a piece of the designer paper to the size of 6″ x 1″ and glued this on top of the background at the bottom of the card. I cut a piece of Recollections – Brown cardstock to the size of 6″ x 5/8″ and applied that above the wording on the bottom of the card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge was used to ink around all of the edges of the card.

The image and sentiment were both imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it and the sentiment. I applied Sakura Glaze – Black to the eyes and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen for the highlights. With a FolkArt 1837 – Perfect Liner #1 and Copic Opaque White I added in some white onto the wings. I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station and the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied them to Recollections – Brown cardstock and Recollections – Black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around the 2 again. I popped them up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape to complete the card.

Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19090 and Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19092. These little woodland creatures are enjoying the miracle of Christmas with some caroling.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die-cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and stamped the images using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the images with Copic markers and added some decorations onto the tree using Nuvo Crystal Drops – Dandelion Yellow, Red Berry and Caribbean Ocean. To add some glitter to the snow, I applied Stickles – Diamond and for the snow in the sky, I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. The sentiment and music symbols were added using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

Hello Winter!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas CAS card using Penguin Tag – SDG003 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Hello Winter – FDG007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Winter is now here and these little penguins couldn’t wait to start enjoying it.

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″.  I cut the background paper from Craft Consortium – Polar Playtime to be the same and attached it directly to the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry was used to ink around the outside of the card. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and the little berries with a Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Gold. I used Sakura Glaze – Black and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen was used for the eyes and little dots on the hat.) Clear – Wink of Stella was applied over top of the candy canes and candy cane border. Once this was all complete, I fussy cut around the image and then coloured in around it with Copic B01. I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station and attached it to some Hot Pink cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around the image and then popped it up on to the card using U-Line double-sided tape.

Owl Christmas!!


Sharing a Christmas card I made today using Gerda Steiner DesignsOwl I Want For Christmas. THANK YOU SO MUCH Gerda Steiner for giving me the opportunity to win this super adorable stamp from playing your amazing Advent Calendar this year. This was one of the prizes for door #7. I couldn’t wait to create this card with it.

To make the card, I created the base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut Creative Memories – Glacier Designer Paper to be the same size as the base and adhered it to the card using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire was used to ink around all of the edges of the card. The image was imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Cuttlebug and dies from Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Holly Lattice Frame, I die cut the printed image and also golden background frame using Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold paper.

I coloured in the image with Copic markers and also added in the tree trunk. Using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, I added snow to the sky, along the branches of the tree and on top of the pine cones. Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff combined with WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle were added to the hat and pompom and then heated with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to make it puff up. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to backs of the image and the gold die cut and both were popped up onto the background. Finally, I added some Stickles – Diamond over top of the snow I created on the tree trunk and pine cones.

For the sentiment, I used a Recollections 1″ circle punch to cut some green cardstock and then using my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment from Penguin Party – Lawn Fawn with VersaFine ink. I added Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and heat embossed it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I inked around the edges of the circle with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles. This was popped up with U-Line double-sided tape and I added the embellishment from Recollections – Snowflake Specialty Polyester Glitter. To create the pine cone and pine needles, I used some scraps of brown and green paper and using my Cuttlebug, I die cut the shapes using Sizzix – Tim Holtz – Festive Greens 662425. I used glue to adhere the pieces together and then popped up the completed piece onto the card using U-Line double sided tape.

The hat, pompom and snow were all then heat embossed using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Stickles – Crystal was also added to the snow to add a little more sparkle.

Dress Up The Christmas Tree!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19090.  These little woodland creatures are enjoying their new tree on a snowy evening. Do you have an outdoor Christmas tree?

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die-cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. Your Next Die – Stiched Frame Snowfall Hill was used to die cut Creative Memories – Glacier Designer Paper Pack for the snow frame and glued to the base background. With My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I also die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock to the size of 4.5″ x 3.25″.

I stamped the image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I coloured in the image with Copic Markers. The sentiment was added using Versamark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heated up with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The background snow was applied with a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Crayola – Yellow Glitter Glue was applied to the glow around the star of the tree and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff combined with WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter was used to create the snow on the bottom. Stickles – Diamond was applied between the snow drifts to create a little more glitter. Nuvo Crystal Drops – Dandelion Yellow, Red Berry and Caribbean Ocean were applied to the tree for decorations. Once everything was dry, I applied U-Line double-sided tap to the back of the coloured image and applied it to the base to complete the card.

Sparkle All The Way!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Snowbear Friends – TDG009 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Sparkle – FDG011 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This month we are celebrating our new Woodland Winter Release at High Hopes Stamps.

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″. I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the die cut and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and added in the snow in the sky with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I added in the tree decorations using a combination of Nuvo Crystal Drops: Red Berry, Dandelion Yellow and Carribean Dream. Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Silver and Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Gold were used to create stripes and colour in circles on the presents. Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff was applied to the brim of their hats and pom-poms and heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. A little bit of Stickles – Diamond was added onto top of the brims and pompoms to make them sparkly.  I added in the snow on the bottom using a spatula and Nuvo Glimmer Paste – Moonstone and let it dry. Once it was dry, I added in some Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff to give the snow a little more texture. This too, was heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I adhered the image to the base card using double-sided tape and Stickles – Diamond was added to the top and side of the sign to complete the card.

Christmas Penguins!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Christmas Penguins – TDG004 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Happy Holidays – FDG006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This is just a sneak peek to all of the wonderful images coming soon on Monday, December 6, 2022 as we celebrate our Woodland Winter Release for the month of December at High Hopes Stamps.

 

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″. I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the die cut and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and added in the snow in the sky with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I combined Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle for their hats and pom-poms and heat embossed them with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I added in the snow on the bottom with Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and Sprinkled some WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter on as well after using a Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear in spots. This too, was heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Lastly, I added in some Stickles – Diamond for snow as well. I love sparkle. LOL! Using double-sided tape, I adhered the finished scene to the base card. I rounded the sentiment with a 1/4″ rounder on the top and cut the 2 bottoms at a diagonal. Copic Marker R37 was used to go around the edges. I popped this onto the finished image using U-Line double-sided tape to complete the card.

Today, I’m featuring this adorable dragon image from Lee Holland Art called Reindeer Antlers Christmas Dragon. Thank you Lee Holland Art for sponsoring us and having such amazing fun designs to choose from. I love all of your little dragons.

 

For the base card, I used AC Cardstock – White and cut it and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. For the background, I cut Creative Memories – Mermaid Cove Designer Paper to the same size as the base card. The image using HP High Quality Grayscale was printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies, the printed image and Hot Buy – Recollections Ombre Brights Paper were both die cut. The sentiment was stamped using my Misti, VersaMark Ink and sentiment stamps from Lawn Fawn – “Offset Sayings – Christmas” and Lawn Fawn “Winter Skies”. Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder was applied to the stamped sentiments and then heat set with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

I cut the sentiment down to be 3-3/8″ x 1-2/8″ and then used W R Memory Keepers – Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to create .25″ corners. Using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I went around all of the edges of the cuts with the exception of the image die cut. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow in the sky and a combination of Stickles – Crystal, Stickles – Waterfall and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff which was applied prior to the Stickles being added.

The card was now ready to be assembled. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the coloured image and cut frame to pop them up. I doubled up the tape for behind the sentiment. The base paper was applied directly to the card base using double-sided tape. I peeled off the tape from the backings of the elements and popped them all up onto the base card to finish it off.

Merry and Bright!!


Today, I’m sharing a light up Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Lets Decorate Our Home – D18037 and for the sentiment Holiday Sentiments Set 003. It’s never too early to start making Christmas cards and here’s hoping that this card will brightens someone’s day this coming Christmas.

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. For the background paper, I used my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies to die cut American Crafts – “Holiday” paper. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers and then I adhered the background to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it in with Copic markers. I added some Stickles – Diamond to the pompom on the hat and fur at the top of the little girl’s boots. For the fluffy snow, I used Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and sprinkled on some DecoArt Glamour Dust while it was still wet. Using my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool, I heated up the liquid for it to puff up and look like sparkling snow. I poked holes in the card where I wanted the blue lights to go. I applied some tissue paper over the holes on the back of the image to diffuse the lights. Using Versamark ink and my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment and then applied Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This too was heated with my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. Lastly, added some snowflakes using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I then set the coloured image aside.

It was now time to set up the bright blue lights for the house using Chibi Lights, copper tape and a battery. I cut out an another rectangle slightly smaller than the coloured image. Placing the coloured image over top of the smaller rectangle, I used a pencil for the placement of the lights on the roof. For the placement of the battery, I used the remote in the girl’s hands as a guide. After mapping out the route for the lights, I place the copper tape down and added 3 blue Chibi Lights to the “+” and “-” paths leading back to the battery. The set up was tested to make sure the lights would come on. Once this was completed, I used 3 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape around the 3 sides of the battery to pop the image up high enough off of the card so that the battery would only light up the lights when someone pressed down on it. To keep the card even all the way around, I added 3 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the remainder of the smaller rectangle. The image was then attached to the smaller rectangle. I added some double-sided tape to the back of the smaller rectangle and adhered it directly to the card to finish it off.

Baking Snowman!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Baking Snowman from the July release. This image comes with 3 sentiments. I’ve used 1 on my card, but you also have the choice of  “Lovin’ from the oven” and “Wishing you a delicious Holiday”. Christmas at our house always had so many wonderful aromas from my mom baking all kinds of Christmas goodies for everyone!

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die the image and frame using my Cuttlebug and Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Paper Cuts Collection – Christmas Feast dies. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and then added in the snowflakes for the sky with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Black PrismaColor Premier Pencil was used to outline parts of the image. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel – Iridescent was added below the snowman to create the sparkling snow and the image was set aside to dry.

The frame for the sentiment die was cut twice using Gina Marie Designs – Nested Scalloped Stitched Rectangles. A cutter was used to remove the frame from the one that contained the sentiment. The edges were then inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door. Viva Decor – Inka-Gold – Yellowgold was applied to the other 2 frames and then once it was dry, a paper towel was used to buff them up and give the gold some shine. The sentiment was then applied directly to the small frame using double-sided tape.

The card was now ready to assemble. Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. was used to create the card base. It was sized at 8-5/8″ x 7¼” and then scored at 3-5/8″. I used my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss to die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper using PinkFresh Studio Essentials – Slim Stitched Rectangle Dies. The dimensions were the same as the base card. Using glue, I applied the large rectangle die-cut directly to the base card. Next, I used the outside frame for the snowman as a guide to where to place the coloured image. I removed the image and applied glue to the back of it and set it back inside the frame. Once the image was glued down to the base, I added glue to the back of the frame and moved it into place around the coloured image to complete the puzzle. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the back of the frame for the sentiment and it was added directly to the glitter paper. Lastly, to finish off my card, I removed the button parts from the backs of the buttons from Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – Christmas Cookies using my Tim Holtz scissors and pliers.  Mini Glue Dots were applied to the backs of each of the buttons and they were applied directly to the glitter paper.

Think Snow!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Snowman Stumble – TT014 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Think Snow 2 – FF047 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I grew up skating at the outdoor rink directly across the street from my house. We couldn’t wait to get home from school and throw on our skates. The rinks were always full of children from the neighbourhood. We would either play rink games or hockey. I think there was a rink every couple of blocks. As soon as we’d finish eating, we were back on the ice again. Our parents were always yelling at us to come inside at the end of the day. How times have changed. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies were used to die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper to be the same size as the base card. With a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, I created the background sky. I applied this directly to the glitter background paper. Once this was done, I applied this directly to the base using double-sided tape. Next, Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD001 – Mountains were used to die cut the tree scenery using Momenta – Cardstock and using a small dauber I added in some darker touches of green using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint. The pond was die cut using Whimsy Stamps – Wavy Nested Frame Dies Set and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I inked the image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. Lastly, I die cut the sentiment using Joy Crafts – Labels and Tags and inked around the edges with my Picket Fence – Blending Brush and the ink that was still on it from doing the sky.

I coloured in the image with Copic markers and added in some highlights on the skate blades with Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen. I inked the image a second time onto the Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper for the snowman body and fussy cut around it. Once it was coloured in with Copics, I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to the base stamped image.

The card was now ready to assemble. Part of the pond was cut off at the top before it was attached it to the sparkly background using glue and double-sided tape. Next, I added some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the trees and applied it over top of where the sky ended and the pond met. To create the snow around the pond and in between the trees, pond and snow, I used Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and added some DecoArt Glamour Dust while it was still wet. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the liquid and make it puff up to look like fluffy snow. I added some Stickles – Diamond to the pompom. Using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point pen, I created the snow in the sky. Lastly, to finish off the card, I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the sentiment and applied it to the card.

The Happy Couple!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using the image from The Paper Shelter called The Happy Couple. I made this card for a colleague who was married recently. Here’s wishing the happy couple a very long and happy marriage!

 

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and then printed it out on my HP Printer using High Quality Grayscale. The image was printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then fussy cut around it.

Using my Cuttlebug, Spellbinders – S6-138 dies, and I die cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. 5 times for the layers and twice for the sides. For the front of the card, I die cut Crafts Pearl Papers – 02-3081416 with the same dies. For the grass, I die-cut Lawn Fawn – Shadow Box Card Park Add-On and Lawn Fawn – Simple Grassy Hillsides using Momenta – Cardstock. Lastly, I die-cut the flag banner using Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Navy Blue and Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies and the sentiment was die cut 5 times with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and once with Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper using PaperCrafter Today – 15 Die Cut Sentiment Set.

For the back panel using stencils I had made previously out of Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Dies, I coloured in the sky using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn was used to colour in the grass. The card was now ready to put together. I started with the coloured background and added the coloured image to it using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

This was adhered to the side panels using double-side tape on both sides.  Working from back to front, I added on the next layer and applied the grass die cut to front of the layer. This was put through the tabs on the side. I added in the next layers in the same manner. A layer with more grass was added to the 4th layer. I added in the next layer and then for the very front I once again cut off the tabs on both sides and then attached it to the sides using double-sided tape. The banner was then added using glue. The paper for the sentiment had been put through my Xyron Creative Station prior to cutting it. This made it easy to peel of the back of the stickers for each layer and assembling them on top of each other. I used the white layers for the bottom of the sentiment and for the final piece, I used the gold. A small jewel dot was used to finish off the dotted “i”.

Good Times!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Joy Ride – TT002 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Good Times – GLL006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Christmas is always a wonderful time to gather with family and friends. Thinking of snow right now is also a way to cool down with all of this summer heat too! LOL!


 

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 chose Echo Park Paper Co. – My Favorite Winter (6″ x 6″) for my background paper and trimmed just a little off of the sides. Then, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch and inked around all of the edges. I added some glue to the back of the paper and applied it to the base card. Using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out, I die cut a larger square from Recollections – Burgundy cardstock and a smaller square from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I inked around the edges of the larger square with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony and applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of it and applied to the background. I die cut the sentiment label with My Creative Time – Stitched Rectangular Frames Dies and More. The image and sentiment were then applied using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I applied Stickles – Unicorn around the edges of the label and set it aside to dry.

I coloured in the image with copic markers. Then I added Stickles – Eucalyptus to the lady’s cuff and collar and Stickles – Crystal to her hat and pompom. For the man, I applied Nuvo Glitter Accents – Fresh Snowfall to his hat and pompom. Lastly, I added some Brutus Monroe – Snow Paste using a spatula to the bottom outer edge of the image to represent a snow bank on the side of the road. Using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen, Glitter Glue Pen and DecoArt Glamour Dust, I created the snowy background. Gelly Roll Sparkle Pen was used to colour in the Holly on the wreath.

Once everything on the image was dry, I applied some glue to the back of it and applied it directly on top of the larger square. I applied some glue and some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the sentiment and applied that on an angle at the top of the card. I only put the tape in a few spots so that it would be the same height as the image. To finish off the card, I added some CC Designs – Dragon Dreams Enamel Dots on to the sentiment and some sequence.

Wine Gnome!!


Sharing a card I made today from KLM Digital Designs May Release called Wine Gnome for the image and sentiment. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “I make pour decisions” and “I will always be your partner in wine!”.

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. was used at the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ to create the base card. I added double-sided tape to the back of the image and attached it directly to the base.
