Friendship Warms The Heart!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Friends Snooze – TDG013 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Friendship – FDG023 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Pop on over to High Hopes Rubber Stamps and see all of the wonderful new images as we celebrate our Winter Friends Release!

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 American Crafts – Jack Frost to be the same size and attached it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire was used to ink around the outside of the card. Using my Cuttlebug, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, Gina Marie Designs – Nested Scalloped Stitched Rectangles, I die cut the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Scrapbook.com – Peppermint Smooth Cardstock and Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Ice Blue Pack. 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. I added U-line double-sided tape to the completed image and popped it up onto the card. The sentiment was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Poppystamps – Christmas Quotes. I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire and glued it onto the top of the image at an angle to complete the card.

Time to Celebrate!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Let’s Celebrate – D19074 for the main image and Christmas Snow Scene – M18313 for the background. For the sentiment, I used Holiday Sentiments Set 001 – D163001

 

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers Die were used to die-cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. Using the background stamps, I stamped the background using my MISTI and Memento – Summer Sky ink. I coloured in the sky, trees and house with Copic markers and then added some snow using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Once this was done, I added Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel – Iridescent to the remainder of the die cut for the sparkling snow. I added a little bit more where the boys feet would land and set it aside to dry. Once again, I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and stamped the main images. I coloured them in with Copic markers and then applied Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear to the fur trims for the hats and clothing. I applied WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter to the inked areas and then heat embossed everything with my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. For the pompoms, I applied Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and then heat embossed the liquid for it to puff up. For the present, I added some gold swirls using a Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen. Then I fussy cut around the images leaving a thin white border. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Lawn Fawn – Peacock Ink on to the base card. Then I stamped it again, this time using Versamark ink and then added Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heat embossed it.

The card was now ready to assemble. Using double-sided tape, I attached the background to the scalloped border. I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the scalloped border and popped it up onto the base card. Using 3M double-sided tape, I popped up the main image and present onto the background. A little more of the Stickles – Diamond was added to snow where his feet are to complete the card.

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.

Create Sunshine!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Goat Your Back – TT137 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Somedays – GG024 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This momma goat and her babes are out enjoying the warmer weather. Spring is finally here! We just planted our flowers this past weekend, or I should say, I helped pick them out and my husband actually did the planting. He has a green thumb. I definitely don’t. LOL!

To make my card this week, I started with a base of 6″ x 6″ using AC White Cardstock. I cut Bo Bunny – Sweet Moments Divine paper to be the same size as the base card and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive. I attached this directly to the base using double-sided tape. Using Doodlebug Design Inc. – Spring Solid Assortment paper, I die cut the yellow rectangle, large green rectangle and small green rectangle using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. The same dies were also used to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card for the main image. Gina Marie Designs – Nested Scalloped Stitched Rectangles were used to die cut Recollections – Petite Floral paper. The edges of this die cut were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Scattered Straw.

I stamped my image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card die cut. I coloured in the image and background using Copic markers. The sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I used my small cutter to cut around the sentiment and inked it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive. I die cut the sun and clouds using Copic Marker X-Press It Blending cardstock and Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD002 – Sky. I coloured these with Copic markers. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of 1 cloud and the sun and attached them to the main image. The other cloud was attached using glue and tucked under the sun.

The card was now ready to assemble. I attached the large green rectangle to the patterned paper base with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The main image and yellow rectangle were attached to the large scalloped rectangle using glue. Then the scalloped rectangle was attached to the large green rectangle with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I attached the sentiment to the smaller green rectangle and popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To finish off the card I used a few pop dots and some yellow flowers.
