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.

Elf Christmas


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring Munchin Melvin Elf – M023 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) who just isn’t able to resist the delicious Gingerbread cookie, paired with the sentiment Have Your Elf – H094 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).

I remember my mom baking little Gingerbread men every year when we were little and she even let us decorate some on our own. It was always so much fun! Then it was even more fun when we were aloud to eat them. Yum! Yum!

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image leaving a small white border. For the sentiment, I stamped it out using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed it using Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was heat set using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Next, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Cracked Pistachio ink was used to colour the white paper to match the edging around the base of the card.

For the base card I started out with white cardstock folded in half to create a 6″ x 6″ card. The elf background from Doodlebug – Christmas Magic was cut to the same size as the base and adhered to it using double-sided tape. For the inside paper, Doodlebug – Christmas Magic paper was used again. Using my Cuttlebug and Creative Expressions Festive Collection – Gingerbread Man die I cut the centre piece out. I used the same die to cut out the red border as well. Then I die cut one more piece using just the large border for the white glitter background. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was chosen to do this with.

To assemble the remainder of the card. I first taped the centre piece to the main red piece at the back. This was then glued to the white glitter background. The frame, main image and sentiment were added using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To complete the card, I used some embellishments from Dress It Up – Holiday Collection and Carta Bella – Santa’s Workshop.

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!
