Itty Bitty Heart!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a CAS card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Sweetheart Gnome – SLF012  for the main image. I just love this sweet little gnome image as you can change the sentiments that she is holding onto. On this card, I chose to add a heart as I thought it would go great with the sentiment Itty Bitty Heart – H006.

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″. For the background, I used my Cuttlebug, Scrapbook.com – Brights Smooth Cardstock and the embossing folder called Cuttlebug – Thank You. After putting this paper through my Cuttlebug, I saw that the texture was white on some of the letters. I decided to take some more of the background colour off using 3M 405N Tri-M-Ite sanding paper. I just loved the rustic effect it gave. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The image was coloured in and fussy cut. A cutter was used to go around the sentiment. 3/8″ We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper was used to create the rounded corners. I inked around all of the edges of the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door.

To assemble the card, I attached the embossed background directly to the base using double-sided tape. The sentiment and image were both popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape to complete the card.

So Mushroom In My Heart!!


Sharing a card I made today using these adorable images from Sweet Sentiment- Internet Troll. He’s in the mood for love, are you?

For the base card, I used AC Cardstock – White and cut it and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. I die cut Craft Consortium – It’s Snome Time paper and Recollections – Red cardstock using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Squares – Set B. The grass was cut with the same cutting machine, green cardstock and Lawn Fawn – Simple Grassy Hillsides die cut. I ran the grass through the die cut machine again using the same size square that I had used for the smaller mushroom background. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles was applied around the edges of the smaller mushroom square. Using double-sided tape, I applied the larger mushroom background directly to the base card. The lawn was layered and applied to the small mushroom square. The red square and smaller mushroom square were both applied to ivory cardstock using double-sided tape. Using my cutter, I cut around the edges leaving a small border. The red and ivory square were then applied directly to the base background using double-sided tape. The mushroom square, grass, ivory square combo were popped up onto the red square using 3M double-sided tape.

Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card was used for the images and sentiment. The images were coloured in with Copic markers. I fussy cut around all of the images and sentiment and inked around the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles. Using glue, I adhered the images to the mushroom background and in between the grass. The sentiment was popped up using 3M double-sided tape onto the card to finish it off.
