Christmas Penguins!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Christmas Penguins – TDG004 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Happy Holidays – FDG006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This is just a sneak peek to all of the wonderful images coming soon on Monday, December 6, 2022 as we celebrate our Woodland Winter Release for the month of December at High Hopes Stamps.

 

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 die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the die cut and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and added in the snow in the sky with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I combined Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle for their hats and pom-poms and heat embossed them with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I added in the snow on the bottom with Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and Sprinkled some WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter on as well after using a Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear in spots. This too, was heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Lastly, I added in some Stickles – Diamond for snow as well. I love sparkle. LOL! Using double-sided tape, I adhered the finished scene to the base card. I rounded the sentiment with a 1/4″ rounder on the top and cut the 2 bottoms at a diagonal. Copic Marker R37 was used to go around the edges. I popped this onto the finished image using U-Line double-sided tape to complete the card.

Dancing Gnome!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs –  Dancing Girl Gnome from the new November release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “Chin up princess or the crown slips” and “Happy Birthday”.

The base was created with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock cut and folded to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I printed out Nana Vics Digitals – Ballerina #2 Digital Paper and cut it to size using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and then adhered it to the base using double-sided tape and some glue. Stickles – Purple was added around all of the edges of the patterned paper background. I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the sentiment and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet was used to ink around all of the edges. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut with scissors and outlined around the edges with a black marker. I ran this through my Xyron Creative Station and applied it to Momenta – Cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around the image and then ran it through my Xyron Creative Station. This time, the image was placed onto black cardstock. I fussy cut around it and then added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment. Both the image and the sentiment were then popped up onto the card. I added in a few Kraftin Kimmie – Festive Dots to finish off the card.

Today, I’m sharing a card I made using KLM Digital Designs –  Office Gnome from the new November release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “You got this!” and “Strive for progress, not perfection”. This card would also be great for someone you know just starting a new position or a recent graduate as well.

To make the card, I started with a base created with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock cut and folded to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I taped off the top of the card with some Post-It Note tape and inserted the Heffy Doodle – Cityscape stencil over top of the bottom half of the card. I taped off the bottom of the stencil and the sides to keep it place. Using multiple Picket Fence – Blending Brushes, I added in the buildings using Memento – Gray Flannel, Memento – London Fog and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Hickory Smoke. I removed the stencil and reapplied it over the card, this time using the stencil to cover the buildings. I re-applied the tape to the bottom of the stencil to keep it in place. Using stencils that I had previously created using Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die, I applied the clouds in using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean with Picket Fence – Blending Brushes. I removed the stencil and turned it around. This time using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Hickory Smoke to add in the windows on the buildings along with just a touch of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. I moved the tape up to where the buildings ended on the bottom and once again placed it across the card. This time, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. The background was now complete.

The image and sentiment were both imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to die cut the image with a small margin around it. This was coloured in with Copic markers. My Cuttlebug, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers were used to die cut the sentiment and black cardstock. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the backs of the images and 2 die cuts to pop-up them all up onto the finished background to complete the card.

Ugly Sweaters!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Ugly Sweater Time – SLF025 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Ugly Sweater Time – FFL025 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I have a few ugly Christmas sweaters, that I love wearing at Christmas time. How many do you have? LOL!

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 main background paper from Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones to be the same size and applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Your Next Stamp – Winter Knits patterns were cut to the size of a little over .5″ each x 4.25″ and applied to the top and bottom of the card using double-sided tape. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out were used to die cut PhotoPlay – Tulla & Norbert’s Christmas Party paper to the size of 4″ x 4″. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was applied around the edges and double-sided tape was used to adhere it to the base card. The large oval was die cut using my Cuttlebug, Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals and Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones paper. This was popped up onto the square using U-Line double-sided tape.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped both the image and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was die-cut using my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals. I coloured the image in with Copic markers. The sentiment was die cut with Whimsy Stamps – Quick Strips Die Set and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was used to ink around the edges. The coloured image and sentiment were both popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape to finish it off.

Today, I’m featuring this adorable dragon image from Lee Holland Art called Reindeer Antlers Christmas Dragon. Thank you Lee Holland Art for sponsoring us and having such amazing fun designs to choose from. I love all of your little dragons.

 

For the base card, I used AC Cardstock – White and cut it and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. For the background, I cut Creative Memories – Mermaid Cove Designer Paper to the same size as the base card. The image using HP High Quality Grayscale was printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies, the printed image and Hot Buy – Recollections Ombre Brights Paper were both die cut. The sentiment was stamped using my Misti, VersaMark Ink and sentiment stamps from Lawn Fawn – “Offset Sayings – Christmas” and Lawn Fawn “Winter Skies”. Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder was applied to the stamped sentiments and then heat set with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

I cut the sentiment down to be 3-3/8″ x 1-2/8″ and then used W R Memory Keepers – Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to create .25″ corners. Using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I went around all of the edges of the cuts with the exception of the image die cut. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow in the sky and a combination of Stickles – Crystal, Stickles – Waterfall and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff which was applied prior to the Stickles being added.

The card was now ready to be assembled. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the coloured image and cut frame to pop them up. I doubled up the tape for behind the sentiment. The base paper was applied directly to the card base using double-sided tape. I peeled off the tape from the backings of the elements and popped them all up onto the base card to finish it off.

Created With Love!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Crafty Gnome using Let’s Color – TLF028 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Created With Love – FFL012 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Crafting is always so much fun and I love to colour up new stamps all the time! This month’s Gnome Mania at High Hopes Rubber Stamps has a lot of fun new gnome stamps to choose from.

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 5.5″. I cut the background paper from Photo-Play – Crafting With My Gnomies Paper Pack to be the same size and applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Twisted Citron was used to ink around all of the edges. Using my Cuttlebug and dies from My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then stamped the image onto it using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Tie die was used to die cut Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock and the sentiment was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the main image with Copic markers and then Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Twisted Citron was used to go around the edges of both die cuts. The image and sentiment were both popped up onto the background using U-Line double-sided tape. Finally, I ran small pieces of paper through my Xyron Create a Sticker from Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones paper pack and then through my Cuttlebug using My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties die cuts. I placed the hearts onto the card to finish it off.

You Are My Son, Moon and Stars!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs –  L’il Boy Gnome from the new November release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “Happy Birthday” and “You’ll outgrow my lap, but never my heart!”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I added in an oval circle with a 2 pt border and placed it behind the sentiment to give me a guide line for where to cut when printed out. I printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut out the main image and I fussy cut out the moon. I coloured in the image and moon with Copic markers.

The base was created with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock cut and folded to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I attached the background pattern paper from Hunky Dory Crafts – Mirri Card – Starry Galaxies, cut to the same size as the base with double-sized tape. I ran the moon through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it onto the starry background and then cut off the excess around the bottom of the card. I added in some stickers onto the background using Forever In Time – Foil Fancy Stickers – Outer Space. The boy was added using U-Line double-sided tape to pop him up onto the card. To finish everything off and complete the card, I used W R Memory Keepers – Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to create .5″ rounded corners.

Jolly Reindeer Cheers!!


Hi everyone…today we are having a sponsor day over at the Passionate Paper Creations & Friends FB group site with Di’s Digi Stamps!! Today I’m using this adorable reindeer image from Di’s Digi Stamps called Jolly Reindeer Cheers.

For the base card, I used AC Cardstock – White and cut it and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. For the background, I applied Craft Consortium – It’s Snome Time (6″ x 6″) to the base using double-sided tape. Green cardstock cut the size of approximately 1″ was added to the bottom using double-sided tape. I added Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629 – Red to Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to make it more sturdy and then cut 2 pieces, 1″ x 6″ and .75″ x 6″ to add to the top and bottom. I applied double-sided tape to adhere it the card. I ran some gold cardstock from Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Gold Medley cut to the size of 1.25″ x 6″ through my Xyron Create a Sticker. Using my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Jingle Bell Border Die, I cut the bells out. I peeled off the sticker backing and applied it to the top of my card. Using Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles – I cut out a circle 3.75″ from the same cardstock and using U-Line double-sided tape, I popped it up in the centre of the card background. The same dies were also used to cut a 3.5″ circle out of Craft Consortium – Ink Drops Vivid Craft Papers and this was popped up onto the gold circle using U-Line double-sided tape. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was cut and I ran it through my Xyron Creative Station. This was used to die-cut the sentiment with my Cuttlebug and Jolly Quickutz – Deck the Halls limited edition gift set. The sentiment was die-cut 4 times and stacked on top of each other to create a raised embellishment and placed in the centre of the red and green stripe on the bottom of the card.

I printed out the image using HP High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut. It was popped up onto the smaller circle using U-line double sided tape to complete the card.

Card of the Month Challenge Round 2 – Brrr!!!


Hey friends! Thank you for everyone that voted for me in Round 1. I have a card using High Hopes Stamps featured in this month’s Card of the Month contest Card of The Month – JUST FOR FUN! with Creative Scrapbooker magazine! Such an honor because all the creations are outstanding! Was wondering if you would all do me a favour and vote for me in Round 2, https://creativescrapbooker.ca/card-of-the-month-nov-2021/?fbclid=IwAR0TdRXPRGcVdkfuxB5BdXNFi2yCfNNW_XZnFzmSXNN4awMuHc3SXrG7i9Y#/bracket/3616656/

I made a Christmas card using Havin’ A Ball Snowman – S147 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Brr… – FDG004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Brr…. – Winter is coming soon!

Dropping A Line!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using Just Fishin’ – TLF029 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Dropping A Line – FFL013 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. High Hopes just released November “Gnome Mania”. There are so many new super adorable gnomes to choose from.

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 Rust coloured cardstock to be the same size and applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut the patterned paper from Photo-Play – Camp Happy Bear. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was used to ink around the edges. I added some thin double-sided U-line tape to this piece and popped it up onto the background. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped both the image and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Craftin Desert Diva’s – Inside Scalloped Squares dies were used to die cut the Rust coloured paper and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I cut a 3.75″ square out of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and used this to piece the 2 die-cuts together after I finished colouring in the image with Copic Markers. This made the 2 pieces more sturdy for adding double-sided tape to pop it up onto the printed background. I die-cut the sentiment using My Creative Time – Curly Frames and then ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker so that it would lay nice and flat onto the Rust coloured cardstock. I didn’t have a larger border frame, so I used my Brother Scan and Cut to create a border around the die cut. Lastly, to finish off the card, I popped this up using U-Line double-sided tape.

Hi everyone…today we are having a sponsor day over at the Passionate Paper Creations & Friends FB group site with Whimsy stamps!! Sharing a card I made today using this adorable image from Whimsy Stamps – Penguin Thinking of You and for the sentiment Penguins Winter Adventure.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″.

Polar Friends!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Polar Friends – TT058 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and All Hearts – HDG004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Sharing Christmas with loved ones is always something to look forward to.

Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug, I die cut a 5.25″ x 4″ rectangle from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto it. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some snow to the sky using a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point. Stickles – Diamond was added to the ice cubes and Wink of Stella – Clear was applied to the candy cane. Stickles – Star Dust was added to all of the snow. This was then set aside to dry.

Once everything was dry, I popped up the image onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper cut and folded to 5.5″ x 4.25″ with U-Line double-sided tape. I stamped out the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured in the hearts with Copics and tinted the white paper with Lawn Fawn – Peacock ink. To finish off the card, I popped this up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs –  Ryan The Frog Catcher from the new October release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “You’re unfrogetable” and “Don’t worry, be hoppy”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.  The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut and inked around the edges with a black marker. I fussy cut around the sentiment and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I applied this to some green cardstock and then repeated the process to add it to some more green cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around it and then added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of it to pop-it up onto the card later.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut AC – Green Cardstock to the same size as the base and attached it using double-sided tape. For the inside background, I cut Reminisce – The Menagerie – Happy Frogs paper to the size of 5.25″ x 4″, 1 lime green panel – 5.25″ x 2″, 1 darker green panel, 1 medium green panel and 1 lighter green panel to the size of 5.25″ x .5″. I applied some Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness using a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush to the 2″ panel on both of the long sides. Using my Cuttlebug and various scraps of greens and browns, I die cut the grass and cattails using Lawn Fawn – Shadow Box Card Park Add-On, Lawn Fawn – Bayou Backdrop and Lawn Fawn – Meadow Backdrop: Landscape.

The card was now ready to assemble. I attached the smaller patch of grass on the right side of the frog background with glue. Next, I added the 2″ panel on the left size. Using glue, I attached each of the remaining .5″ panels, centering them in between the 2″ green panel. The 2nd layer of grass was attached with glue along the lower edge of the card and then I used scissors to cut off the pieces that were over the edges of the main background piece. I made sure that no glue was added to the tops of the grasses. I pieced the 2 cattails together using glue and then popped up the tops of them with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added some glue and inserted the 1st cattail under the top blades of grass. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the back of the boy and the net, except for the area behind the shoes and he was inserted under the top blade of grass and in front of the cattail. The other cattail was then applied to the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape for the top part of the cattail and glue was added to the remainder of the piece and added to the card. The other 2 darker blades of grass were added with some glue. Lastly, to finish off the card, the popped up sentiment was added.

It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Havin’ A Ball Snowman – S147 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Brr… – FDG004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Brr…. – Winter is coming soon!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″. I cut out the background from Heartfelt Creations – Merry and Bright Collection and sized it to 4″ x 5.25″. Adding double-sided tape, I adhered this to some yellow cardstock. I cut around the yellow cardstock and left a very thin border. Lastly, I applied some double-sided tape and glue and attached it to the base.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and sentiment with Copic markers. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then I fussy cut around the image and the sentiment. Using a black pen, I outlined all of the edges for the image and sentiment, except in the snowy area. I peeled off the backing to the sentiment pieces and adhered them to the card front. I glued the snowman image in place at the bottom of the cut out background. I applied Stickles – Sea Glass to the Sweater cuffs and trim and a little bit in the snow at the bottom of the snowman. Stickles – HIbiscus was applied to the hat trim and pom pom. Stickles – Diamond was added to the snowballs and Stickles Crystal, Diamond and Stardust were all added to the snow to finish off the card.
