Come To Save The Day!


It’s Wednesday, and this week using High Hopes Stamps, I made a slim line card using  Sir Dustin – T177Jousting Dragon – S221 and Castle – R092 images and Here I Come…. – F248 for the sentiment. I love fantasy and dragons and thought these images were so much fun to play with.

I made my slim line card using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock for my base folded at 4″ x 9″.

I stamped the images and sentiment using Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut the Copic paper with PinkFresh Studio – Essential Slim Cuts to use for the background. I decided to stamp the castle and sentiment directly onto the background. The other 2 images were stamped separately and then I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around them and fussy cut where they still had some white around the images.

I coloured in the Castle – R092 using Royal Blue colours for the flags, the same as Sir Dustin – T177 who I coloured in as the Blue Knight. I added some extra bricks onto the castle to give it some more texture. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die stencils that I made using the die cuts, I coloured in the sky. To give some texture to the grass, I first used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn. Then I enhanced the colours using my Copic markers. I added some glue onto the back of the coloured image and attached it directly to the base card.

Sir Dustin – T177 was coloured in with Copic Markers and then I used a black marker to go around the entire image. This was popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the background. I used Royal Blues for his outfit and Royal Purples and gold for his dragon.

Lastly, I coloured in Jousting Dragon – S221 as the Red Knight with Copic Markers and then I went around the image with a black marker. I decided to make him the Red Knight and added a “D” to his shield for “Dragon”. LOL! The image was popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card.

Birthday Girl!!


Sharing image and sentiment from KLM Digital Designs today from the new February release called Karah’s Cupcake. This stamp set comes with 3 sentiments. This image brings back memories of when I was little and my mom used to bake us fancy cakes and cupcakes for our birthdays every year.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5″ x 3.6″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I had a few issues with her hair using my markers, so I used PrismaColor pencils to try and fix it. For the shadow behind the girl, I just used the same 2 markers several times on the background wall. I die cut some pink cardstock using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set and then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry.

I used Hot Buy Recollections Card base of 5.25″ x 4.25″ for the base and attached the die cut directly to the base using double-sided tape. The completed image was popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish off the card.

Happiness


Hi Everyone! It’s the new year and it’s never too early to start making your Christmas cards. Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card from Dreamerland Crafts new Christmas release called Happiness Is Time Spent With A Good Friend – D20009.

To create this card, I first stamped my images using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.  The images were coloured in with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut around them and went around the edges with a black marker and set them aside.

Next, I worked on the background. I cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to the size of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I created the sky using the Tim Holtz inks listed below and then added in some snow using Stamperi – Glamour Paste – Sparkling White and sprinkling on some Martha Stewart Crafts – Crystal Fine Glitter while it was still wet. I then set this aside to dry. Once the paste was dry, I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink. The sentiment was embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

The bench was die cut using Joy Crafts – Floral Flourishes – 6002/0191, my Cutttlebug and Tim Holtz – Idea-ology – Christmas paper. Shadows were added in using T5 Copic Marker. I created a base card using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to the size of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I added double-sided tape to the coloured background and adhered it directly to the base. Using double-sided tape, I added the bench to the background. I popped up the images on the bench using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The snow and stars were added in using a combination of Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Sequins was added from some mixed sparkles I had.

To finish off the card, I added in some Cosmic Shimmer – Fluffy Puff around the bottom of each of the legs of the bench and also onto the trim of the girl’s cape, kitten’s cape and pompom. Lastly, I added some Stickles – Diamond onto the snow and the girl’s cape for added texture.

P.S. I Love You!!


Today, I’m sharing Loving Rat from KLM Digital Designs December Release. The image comes with 3 different sentiments, “Love You Most”, “Everything is Better with You” and “P.S. I Love You”. I was born in the Year of the Rat, so this image is extra special to me. Who couldn’t love that adorable face? LOL!

To make the card, I printed out the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I used my Brother Scan N’ Cut to cut around it, leaving a small white border. After it was coloured, I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to trace over the sentiment and add a sparkle to the eyes. I felt the finished image still needed something to make it pop on the background, so I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station and adhered it to some Recollections Black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around the image again.

To create the card, I began with a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper. I cut K&Company – Kelly Panacci – KP Valentine – 30-599345 to the same size as the base and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. I cut the top row of hearts from the same paper, added some glue to the back of it and placed it on the top of the card so that it matched the bottom pattern. Then I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door. I popped up the image onto the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I die cut some hearts using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted, my Cuttlebug and Martha Stewart Crafts – Enchanted Woodland 12″ x 12″ paper. I really love the glitter of this paper. Lastly, I added the hearts with some glue to complete the card.

Wish You A Merry Christmas


Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card from Dreamerland Crafts new Christmas release called We Wish You A Merry Christmas – D20012. This card features a little kitten helping his friend celebrate the joy of Christmas giving.

To create this card, I first die-cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Creative Expressions – Festive Frames – Snowball. I separated the 2 pieces of the die-cut and using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black, I stamped the image onto the paper and  coloured it in with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder. Once this was done, I added all of the snowflakes in the sky using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and also Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. For the snow on the ground, I used a mixture of Nuvo Glitter Accents – Fresh Snowfall and Stickles – Crystal. This was then set aside for a few hours to dry.

For the frame, I used Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish – Summer Sky. It was my first time using this polish and I just love how it turned out. Once the snow on the image was dry, I flipped the 2 die-cuts over and attached them back together using some clear tape on the back.

The card was now ready to assemble. For the card base I used The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 4.25″ x 5.5″. I added some double-sided tape and some glue to the backing of the finished frame and image and attached it directly to the card base.

Mistletoe Santa Gnome!!


Today, I’m sharing another super adorable gnome from KLM Digital Designs November release called Mistletoe Santa Gnome. The image comes with 3 different sentiments, “Merry Christmas”, which I’ve used on my card and also, “Believe” and “ho-ho-ho”. This Santa gnome is out taking a stroll and enjoying the magic of Christmas and winter.

I decided to colour this Santa in non-traditional colours. 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. Then I applied Nuvo Glitter Accents – Fresh Snowfall to the all of the trimming and set it aside to dry.

I used AC White paper to create the base shape of the card 6″ x 6″. Then I applied Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper cut to the same size directly to the base. I had a spare cut-out from American Crafts – “Holiday” paper in which I had used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to die cut the centre. I trimmed it a little bit on all sides to create a border. I took a small scrap of Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and tore it across the top to imitate snow caps. This I adhered to the back of the die-cut panel. Then, I glued the entire piece down on to the background. I also made sure that I didn’t use any glue towards the tops of the snow.

The sentiment was brought into Microsoft Word and I adjusted the width to be .95″. This allowed me to use the 1″ die from Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to die cut the sentiment after it was printed out. I inked around the edges of the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers and applied Clear – Wink of Stella over top of it to make it sparkle. The snowflakes were all die cut from Signature Collection by Sara Davies – Winter Wonderland Snowflake Quartet.

The remainder of the card was now ready to put together. I glued the Gnome directly to the background paper and moved it slightly under the snow. I added glue to each of the snowflakes and placed them directly onto the backgrounds. Lastly, I popped up the sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Sending You Tidings


Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card by Dreamerland Crafts using their stamp set called Sending You Tidings – D19072. Growing up in the North, we used to get a lot of snow. I always love looking out the window and seeing the snow fall and how beautiful it looks on the houses and trees. Driving in it, not so much, but everything else about winter, I love. LOL!

To make this card, I cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the size of 4.75″ x 3.5″ using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers Dies. Then using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black, I stamped the image first onto the paper and then again on to Post-It Note to create a mask. I fussy cut around the mask and placed it to the side to use a little later. I then proceeded to colour in my image with Copic markers.

Once the colouring of the image was complete, I was ready to create the sky. To accomplish this, the mask that I had set aside earlier was placed over top of the coloured image. A mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks were then used: Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Dusty Concord inks. Once, the background was completed, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using my MISTI and VersaMark ink. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

I was now ready to add the final finishing touches. To do this, I added in the snowflakes and stars using Gelly Roll Sakura #10, #8 and #5 Pens. Stickles – Cool Mint was added to the little lady’s hat, pom-pom and coat cuffs. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel was applied with a spatula along the bottom of the card to create some sparkling snow and also to the top of the chimney with a Q-Tip. I also coloured in the little snowflake in the sky with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 pen and then Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear to make it sparkle. I set the card aside to let the glitter dry for a few hours.

For the card base I used Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 and edged around all of the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Iced Spruce. I die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper to the size 3.75″ x 5″ using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and Cuttlebug. This was adhered directly onto the base using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Once the glitter was completely dry, I layered the completed image on top of the second layer using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Wishing You The Best


Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card by Dreamerland Crafts using their stamp set called Wishing You and Your Family – D19069. I decided to make the scene a snowy night, because when we were little, we used to go at dusk to pick up out our new tree. It was always so much fun!

 

To make this card, I cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black, I stamped the image first onto the paper and then again on to Post-It Note to create a mask. I fussy cut around the mask and placed it over top of the main image. To create my background I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Dusty Concord inks. Once they were all blended and I was satisfied with the look, I spritzed some water on top and then placed some paper towel over top to pick up some of the droplets.

I removed the mask and proceeded to colour in the main image with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using my MISTI and VersaMark ink. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

I was now ready to add the final finishing touches. To do this, I added in the snowflakes and stars using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and Stickles – Cool Mint to the little lady’s hat and scarf. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel was applied with a spatula along the bottom of the card to create some sparkling snow. I set the card aside to let the glitter dry for a few hours.

Once everything was dry, I attached it to a white base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper with double-sided tape.

Gnome – Merry Christmas!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m featuring a Christmas card I made using the image Flying Gnome – TLF008 and sentiment Sm Christmas Script – F051 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).  I just love colouring these adorable little gnomes. Also, it’s always good to make Christmas cards a little at a time throughout the year so that you are not rushing to get them all done in December. LOL! Have you started making your Christmas cards yet this year?

To create the card this week, I first used the die cut from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background – CED3049 to cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug. I stamped the main image and then coloured it with Copic Markers. I started off doing the sky first as I didn’t want any of the Reds smearing into it. (This happens sometimes if you are not careful.) Once the image was all coloured in, I used Sakura Glaze – Black and Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to increase the intensity of the eye on the bird. I outlined the entire image with Pigma Micron 03 black marker to make it stand out more against the sky. Lastly, I used a mixture of Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow and stars in the sky.

For the base of the card, I began with a standard white card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I cut another piece of white cardstock the same size and applied the red shimmer topping on it using Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. I used the same die cut listed above to cut out the intricate design using my Cuttlebug and the gold paper from Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper. I had put the gold paper through my Xyron Creative Station before I die cut it. This made it easier to just peel and stick onto the base.

For the sentiment, I die cut some spare red cardstock using Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies. Using my MISTI and VersaMark ink, I stamped the sentiment onto the die cut and embossed it using Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder. This was heated with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The image and the sentiment were both popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card.

Furry and Bright!!


Today I’m sharing this adorable Gnomes and Pets image from KLM Digital Designs new August release. I just loved this adorable stamp and decided it would make an awesome Christmas card for all of your furry loving friends. Who couldn’t resist those adorable little faces?

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers, and my Brother Scan and Cut was used to fussy cut around the image. A black marker was used to go around all of the edges.

For the main background, a green card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ by The Paper Studio – Christmas Box of Cards 2012 Collection was used. Recollections – “Jolly Holiday” paper was cut at 5.5″ 2.25″ x and Recollections – Christmas Pets was cut at 5.5″ x .5″ twice. Glue was used to adhere each panel to the base card. The sentiment was stamped using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heat embossed using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Along the bottom, Marvy Uchida Snow Marker was applied and while still wet, Martha Stewart Crafts – Crystal Fine Glitter was applied. To make it fluffy, Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used.

I popped up the image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The little black and white kitty from Dress It Up – Kitten Kaboodle was added to complete the card.

Make it Rain!


Sharing a fun birthday card that I made for my husband this week using Make It Rain – CYNS728 (#YourNextStamp) for the main image and sentiment. I thought it would be fun to put the image inside a balloon too! Now if only that could be Lottery Winnings he was holding onto. LOL!

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple lime green card base, sized at 5.5″ x 4.25″.  For the bottom layer I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper and multiple Tim Holtz inks which I have listed below. Then I die-cut the top layer with my Cuttlebug and #Your Next Stamp – Confetti Panel Die. Hammermill paper was used for this also. I mounted the bottom layer directly onto  the base card and then attached the top die-cut layer using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

For both of the sentiments, I used my MISTI, VeraMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail on black cardstock. Then a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat emboss the powder.

The balloon was die cut using My Creative Time – Stitched Circle Balloon Dies MCT-D137 to cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card which I then stamped the main image onto using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. The image was coloured with Copic Markers.

To assemble the remainder of the card, the image and sentiment were popped up on top with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Some ribbon was tied to the bottom of the balloon and some Kraftin’ Kimmie dots were used.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Make It Rain – CYNS728 (#YourNextStamp)

Butterfly Hi!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Butterfly Chick – SLF007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image from the new August 2020 release and Flutter’in By – F004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This little butterfly has decided to take a moment to say “Hi” to this adorable little chick. Have you taken a moment to call someone and just “Hi” today?

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 6″ x 6″. I used the retired die cuts from Craftin Desert Diva’s – Inside Scalloped Squares and a mixture of Momenta – Cardstock and American Crafts – Basics paper for my background. The same die cut was also used to cut the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. The Copic paper was then stamped on with my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers.

For the assembly of the card, I first placed down the large background using 2-sided tape. Then I added in the 1st yellow inset using glue as it was easier to move around and get it into place. Lastly, I added in the last inset for the large scalloped square. For the smaller square, the coloured image and yellow cardstock were turned over and then taped together with some Scotch Tape. Then 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was used to pop it up into the centre of the larger square.

The sentiment was stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black and then die cut with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber was used to go around all of the edges. Then the sentiment was also popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To finish off the card I added on some butterflies and also a few Kraftin’ Kimmie – Polar Dots in a few places.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Butterfly Chick – SLF007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Cupcake Gnome


Today I’m sharing this adorable Cupcake Gnome image from KLM Digital Designs new August release. He’s made this big cupcake just in time to help a special someone celebrate another amazing  birthday year!

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was then coloured in with Copic markers, fussy cut, then lined around all of the edges with a black marker.

For the main background, I used a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″.  PhotoPlay – Party Girl paper was used to create the background. To do this, multiple layers of the paper were cut out using a mixture of My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and Layers. Then the cut rectangles were edged with Kraftin Kimmie – Mermaid Melody and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Pink Pizzaz inks.

For the sentiment. “Happy Birthday” was die cut 5 times and then layered to give it dimension. Once all of the layers were completely assembled the tops of each were stamped with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

I popped up the image and background layers with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card and added in a few Kraftin’ Kimmie Krafty Dots.

Gnome For the Holidays


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Snowy Gnome – TLF024 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image from the new August 2020 release and From Our Gnome – GLL001 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This little gnome has gone home for the holidays to celebrate with friends and family. As you can see there are a lot of activities going on in Gnome Town. This little gnome has his snowballs ready for the next snowball fun fight! LOL! While waiting for the other team to get ready, he’s decided to take a little break and enjoy nature with his little cardinal friends. Then, let the fun begin!!!

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 6″ x 6″. I cut some dark blue cardstock, just slightly smaller and adhered it to the card with Tombow Mutli-Liquid Glue. I just love this paper from PhotoPlay called Gnome for the Holidays Christmas. I thought it went perfectly with this new stamp. I cut it at about 5.75″ x 5.75″. Then I glued it to the blue paper.

I die cut multiple circles in a variety of sizes using a mixture of My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles and Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles using dark blue and red cardstock and also Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card for the main image.

The image was stamped onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock circle using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. It was then coloured it in with Copic markers. For the snow, I used Recollections – Christmas Snow Paste, Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter – Crystal Fine and a spatula and let it dry overnight. Then  Stickles – Diamond was added onto the top of it. For the sky a mixture of 2 Gel pens were used and then a little bit of Stickles – Diamond to add some glitter to it. I was trying to get it to match the background paper. Once the Stickles was dry, I glued the bottom 2 layers of circles together and then the top 2 circles.  Both were done separately. The sentiment was stamped with Versa Mark and then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and heated with Marvy Uchida Embossing Heat Tool. I fussy cut around the sentiment and glued it directly on top of some red cardstock. Then I cut around that as well.

To complete the card I popped up the bottom circles, top circles with coloured image and sentiment with the 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Lastly, I added some more sparkle with Stickles – Diamond by adding it to the base of the card in random places.

All Dreams Come True


It’s Wednesday, and this week, High Hopes Rubber Stamps new release Dreamy Willa – SLF010 is looking up into the stars and sharing this special moment with her little friend. I thought All Dreams Come True – G011 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) was the perfect sentiment to go with this adorable new image. Sometimes it’s nice to be just like Willa and just gaze up at the stars and just live in the peace and tranquility of the moment. Have you ever done this? I know I have.


To make my card this week, I started out with a base card of 6″ x 6″. Then I cut the main background the same size using Hot Buy Craft Smart – Moon Flower Magic. I just fell in love with this paper and thought it went so perfectly with the new image. I also die cut some miscellaneous cardstock that I had which had little stars and is navy blue using My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. I also, die cut the main image with the same set of dies out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The sentiment was die cut using My Creative Time – Ribbon End Dies. All of the die cuts were then edged with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint.

Both the main image and sentiment were stamped using my Misti and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The image was then coloured in using Copic markers which I have listed below. Once the image was all coloured, I bumped up the background, image and sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Speedy Recovery!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Walker Walter – TLF013 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) from the new release for the main image and Speedy Recovery Background – U004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I have an older friend in the hospital right now waiting to have an operation and I thought this little card would definitely cheer him up.

To make my card this week, I used Recollections – Cape Cod cardstock for the base card which is 4.25″ x 5.5″. I stamped both the large background image and Walter using my Misti and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.

Then I ran the background image through my Cuttlebug using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut it.

Both images were coloured using Copic Markers. I edged around the background image and card base with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around “Walker Walter” and then outlined the image with Copic Markers C3 and C1. Next, I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station and adhered it to some Black cardstock. I again used the Scan and Cut to cut around the image. I thought the border was too large, so I just manually fussy cut around the image leaving a smaller black border around it.

To complete the card, I bumped up both the background and the main image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

Stamp:  Walker Walter – TLF013 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Walking in a Winter Wonderland


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card with you that I made using DCS19089 – Mix and Match Clear Stamp  (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the main image and sentiment and 2018 Christmas Trees & Houses – M18312 (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the trees in the background! I thought this little bear was just so adorable, so I thought I would make him pulling his little forest friend on a little walk through the forest!

I used the centre die cut from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background – CED3049 to cut out the area I wanted to stamp my image on. I used Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI to get a nice clean image. The first step was to stamp the bear, sled and bunny. Next I used Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and stamped the 3 images again. Next, I added the masked images over top of the images that were previously stamped on the base image.

The second step was to stamp in the trees. I wanted to give the impression that some trees were further back, so I inked the tree stamp with Memento – Bamboo Leaves and stamped once and then immediately again using the same stamp. I performed this several times across the background. Once all of the trees were in place, I removed the masking and was ready to colour in my images.

Before adding snow to the sky, I stamped on the sentiment using VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I added in the snow flakes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

The colours used for each character and the trees are listed below. The final step for the main image was to add in some sparkle on the trees and snow on the ground. For the glitter on the trees I used Quickie Glue and DecoArt Glamour Dust. For the snow below the trees, sled and bear, I used VersaMark ink and WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle and touches of Stickles – Diamond.

Lastly, I die cut the background frame using Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background. I added glue to the back of the die cut and mounted it on top of Crafts Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. Then I popped up the main image in the centre using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Polar Bears Visit Santa


Hi There! Sharing a Christmas card that I made using Polar Bears Visit (Di’s Digital Stamps). I just thought this image was so adorable and helps to celebrate the magic of Christmas!

To make this card I printed the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock using Grayscale. Using grayscale prevents the image from smudging when you go to colour it. I coloured in the image with various Copic markers which are listed below and then added in the snow on the bottom of the sleigh with DecoArt Snow-Tex. I love the texture of the snow with this product. After completing everything, I mounted the image onto the background papers using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Gingerbread Dreams!


It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Christmas. YAY!!!  This week, I used Gingerbread House (S159) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Gingerbread Dreams (E061) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To make this card I stamped the Gingerbread House image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool in order to give me a nice crisp image. I coloured in the image with a little guidance from Kit and Clowder’s Gingerbread house video created by Alyce. For the snow and candies, you can’t see it in this photo, but I used Spectrum Noir – Crystal Clear Sparkles. Once I finished colouring in the image, I fussy cut around it. I also stamped out the sentiment and fussy cut around that as well.

Next I used the Gingerbread Chain punch from Creative Memories to cut out my little gingerbread men and then used Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the icing and a dab of Copic Marker #29 for the cheeks.

For the assembly of the card, I used 6″ x 6″ AC Autumn Cardstock for the base. I had a piece of Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper from a previous project that I had worked on and layered this on top of the Gingerbread men paper from Doodlebug Design Inc. – Milk and Cookies.

Lastly I used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop up all of the images and sentiment. I added in the little red embellishments to represent the little gingerbreads dreaming of their wonderful gingerbread house. LOL!
