Tea Time!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Rose Teapot from the new June release for the image and sentiment. I have always loved tea and never liked coffee. I have a huge cupboard full of Herbal Teas and love how wonderful it tastes especially with a spoonful of natural unpasteurized honey. Spending time with my grandmother and having a cup of tea with her was always special and I still cherish those moments even though she left us for a better place a long time ago.

To make the card, I first imported the image and the sentiment into Microsoft Word. I created the green background behind the sentiment by creating a rectangle shape and moving it to the back behind it. Then I coloured the rectangle green using a custom colour of R233, G242 and B227 combined and printed out the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the sentiment onto copy paper using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it leaving a thin white border. I fussy cut around the sentiment as well and applied glue behind it and then attached it to the little sign. Then I attached the sign to some pink cardstock and fussy cut around the sign again. The background papers were all from P13 – The Four Seasons – Spring.

I cut the green patterned paper to the size of 5.75″ x 2.75″ and approximately 6″ x 3/16″ and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Bundled Sage. The pink solid patterned paper is 6″ x 3″ and the large patterned background is 6″ x 6″. The pinks were inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spun Sugar.

To assemble the card, I began with a base card of 6″ x 6″ using AC White Cardstock. Using double-side tape, I attached the large background directly to the base. Next I applied the larger pink rectangle to the main background using double-sided tape. The 2 green layers were also added using double-sided tape. For the sentiment and the image, 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the backs of each and then attached to the card. To finish it off, I added some sequins using Craftin Desert Diva’s – Sherbert.

Sending Hugs and Prayers


Today I’m sharing a CAS card that I made using  Cherry Blossom Bird (KLM Digital Designs).  This image from KLM Digital Designs new release comes with 2 beautiful sentiments “Sending Hugs & Prayers” and “Sending Hugs” which could be used for an Inspirational, Get Well or Sympathy Card! I think we could all use a little hug! So I’m sending you all a virtual hug today!

For this card, I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. Then I coloured it in with Copic markers. Once the colouring was completed, I traced around all of the image with a Micron 01 Fine Liner to make the flowers and leaves pop.  I created the background surrounding the flowers using Copic YR20 and YR21. Then I used a Q-Tip and mottled the background using some rubbing alcohol and just dabbing here and there. Double-side tape was used to adhere the blue cardstock to a white base card cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″. The finished image was glued onto the card base and some Kraftin’ Kimmie Enamel Dots were added to finish it off.

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.
