Birthday Presents and Cake!!


Sharing a birthday card that I made for a friend using a digital image from Polkadoodles called Cake Time Digi – Winnie Celebrations 2. I really love this awesome collection.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and then printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer using High Quality Grayscale. I found this to be the best setting as it doesn’t smudge when you colour. Next, I used Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Oval dies to die cut the image out. The image was coloured in with Copic markers.

Using Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones – 5.5″ x 4.25″ cardstock as the base. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. All of the edges of the card were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry.

3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the die cut and attached directly to the base. Lastly to finish off the card, I added some Crafts – Rhinestone Stickers.

Love Lifts Me Up!!


Today, I’m sharing an inspirational slider card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Your Love Lifts Me Up – D20001. Love this stamp and image for lifting someone’s spirit up.

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5 x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background to be the same size using Asuka Studio – Sparkly Sky. I really love this paper. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured them in with Copic markers. Then, I fussy cut around it leaving a small white border.

I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. The little cloud was die cut with my Cuttlebug and Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD002 – Sky. Then I used a Picket Fence – Blending Brush that still had some blue ink on it from my last project to give it some colour. I cut a small strip just over a .5″ wide and about 4″ long to be a pull tab. I die cut a circle out of the top background paper with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles and then glued the piece that I cut onto the pull tab. Using 2 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I created the path on the back of the background and added some tape where I wanted the tab to stop. I glued 2 small magnets to the back of the cloud and also to the pull tab. (4 in total). Then I used an embossing pillow against the taped sides and over the magnets so that it would glide easier. I added some more double-sided tape to the remainder of the back of the background and then attached it to the card.
