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.

Dear Santa!


Hi Everyone! I’m participating in the 2020 Cat Lovers Blog Hop (#2020CatLoversHop) this year.

This is my third year joining the fun event. For six years, Her Peaceful Garden has been sponsoring The Cat Lover’s Blog Hop and it is a lot of fun.

Here is a third Christmas card that I have created for the hop using Christmas Kitten – GSD617 (Gerda Steiner Designs) for the main image and sentiment. These little kittens are getting into all kinds of trouble. It reminds me so much of when I had my little fur babies. LOL!

To make my card, I started with a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card the same size and stamped on the fun images. Copic markers were used to colour the images in. Once this was done, I stamped the sentiments using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and applied Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder which I heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.  I adhered the completed image to the base using double-sided tape. To finish off the card, I used some Clear – Wink of Stella to add a little bit of sparkle to all of the baubles and Stickles – Diamond for the hats.

THANK YOU so much to Her Peaceful Garden for hosting this event again this year and also a big THANK YOU to Gerda Steiner Designs for being a sponsor this year as well.
