Sending Big Hugs!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using this super adorable image from Dreamerland Crafts stamps called My True Love – D18018. Great big in person hugs or even virtual hugs are always nice to give to give to someone or something that you love.

Here is a close-up of the featured image.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 8-7/8″ x 3-7/8″ using Aqua cardstock. I die cut Crafts – Foil Designer Paper – 02-3080678 using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and PinkFresh Studio Essentials – Slim Stitched Rectangle Die Set. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough, I inked all around the edges of the card and die cut. Then I inked the front of the die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers, and Speckled Egg using Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was applied last at the bottom of the panel to represent grass. I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the die cut and added it to the base card.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it in with Copic markers. The coloured image was fussy cut out and a black marker was used to go around all of the edges. This was then applied directly to the patterned paper using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To create the “Sending Big Hugs” sentiment, I first took an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of black cardstock and cut it at the 4.25″ mark. Then I ran both pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I find this makes it much simpler than trying to add glue to each piece. Once this was done, using my Cuttlebug, I die cut the black cardstock using Lawn Fawn – “Sending Big Hugs” die 6 times. Then I did it 1 more time using Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Ombre Pastel after I had run it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I cut around the word “Big” to make it stand out.

I peeled off the sticker from the back of each of them and applied each layer on top of each other to create an embossed image. Then I added the sparkly “Big” as a last layer. I applied this to the patterned paper at the top of the card. Lastly, If felt something was missing, so I added some Stickles – Aqua all around the edges of the large rectangle die cut.

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.
