Have A Purr-fect Day!


Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadians!!!

It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Kitty’s Perch – TLF021 from High Hopes Rubber Stamps new release for the main image and Pawsitively – G307 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This happy little kitty is having a great day exploring and has taken some time out to wish you a “Pawsitively Purr-fect Day”!! Hopefully, he puts a little smile on your face!

For my card this week, I began with a white base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut some Recollections – Green cardstock the same size and adhered it directly on the front of the base. Then I used my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set using the various dies to create the layers using both the base green cardstock and also Recollections – Petite Floral. I adhered the next to layers directly to the base. Then popped up the last 2 layers with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The image was coloured with Copic markers and was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.

I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink for the sentiment as well, then I cut it to size and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it directly over the 2nd layer. Lastly, to finish off the card, I added some Craft- Rhinestone Stickers over the flowered background.

Happy Birthday To Ye!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Peg Leg Pete – R088 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Pirates Birthday – F147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Peg Leg Pete is showing off his map of previous adventures from his pirating days around the Caribbean. He’s gathered quite a treasure of findings. But, when you are a pirate, there is always more places and ships out there to plunder. LOL!

To make my card this week, I used Scrapberry’s – The Pirate’s Treasure (6×6 Paper Collection) paper for the main background which fit onto a card base of 6″ x 6″ perfectly.

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and then coloured it in with Copic markers. Next, I fussy cut around the entire image and used a black marker to go around all of the edges.

To create the look of a ship in the background, I cut 2 small pieces of paper from Joy Crafts – Wood Texture and Joy Crafts Tough Textures miniature 4 x 9 designs. Then I joined them both together using 2-sided tape. Next, I ran both pieces through my Cuttlebug using My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles die cut. I popped up both the image and the small half circle background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and placed it in the centre of the card.

Once again, I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink for the sentiment. I taped down the sentiment onto some scrap red cardstock and bumped it up on the card with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Lastly, to finish it off, I went around the entire outer edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge and added a few Kraftin Kimmie – Seashore Dots.

Card Recipe:

Stamp:  Peg Leg Pete – R088  (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Buddy’s Surprize!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using Buddy Bear’s Surprise – S193 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Shhh Party! – H038 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Buddy is not very good at keeping secrets though or spelling! LOL! He is however, ready to bring you presents and party on!

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I love this background party paper by Echo Park called “It’s Your Birthday”. I cut it the same size as the base card and then used 2-sided tape to attach it to the base. Then I inked around the entire outside edges of the card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet.

I used My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out to cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Then I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp the image. I coloured in the main image with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment onto some yellow cardstock with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut it out. Next, I ran both my image and sentiment through the Xyron Creative Station to turn them both into stickers. I applied both of these to some Violet cardstock and trimmed a small border. Lastly, I popped up both the image and the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Hang in There!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I thought I’d make an inspirational card to share with you using Raggedy Ann-ouncement – R044 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Hang In There – D278 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I created the background on Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock using various stencils, Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes and Tim Holtz inks which I have listed below. I thought the sun rays reflected a ray of hope for everyone and I hope that we will all be seeing better days soon. Once the background was finished, I used 2 sided tape and mounted it onto the base card.

I stamped the image  and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured in the main image with Copic markers. I ran the coloured image through my Brother Scan and Cut to create a slim border around it and then went around the edges with Y06 – Yellow and YG25 – Celadon Green to make it blend into the background. Lastly, I popped up the image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and created a small shadow below Raggedy Ann.

Card Recipe:

Happy Bird Day!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Party Girl Florence – S098 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Happy Bird Day – F098 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Florence is all dolled up and ready for a Bird Day party! She’s the centre of attention with all of her bling, balloons, party hat and musical whistle. She’s also has some fancy moves in store for the Flamingo party dance! LOL!

To make my card this week, I started off with a white card base of 6″ x 6″. For the background paper, I used Forever in Time – Flamingo – Perfect Prints. I coloured the little party hats onto the Flamingos using PrismaColor Premier Pencils. Then I added some white pearls around their necks with Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point. Lastly, I edged around the paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Cracked Pistachio.

I used my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles MCT-D136 to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the image. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the pink and aqua circles. I ran the coloured image through a Xyron Creative Station to make it into a sticker and then mounted it onto the pink cardstock. Then I popped up this piece and the aqua circle with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I went around the edge of the pink circle with Hibiscus – Stickles and used Crystal – Stickles for the necklace around Florence’s neck.

I stamped the sentiment onto Yellow cardstock and the ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I mounted that onto some pink cardstock and then popped up this piece and the aqua cardstock with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I went around the pink cardstock with Hibiscus Stickles. To finish off the card, I added some Crafts – pop dots.

Wade Goes To The Beach!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Wade – 132 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Summer’s Day Saying – L031 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Wade couldn’t wait to go the beach. He’s enjoying the waves and the beautiful beach and sunshine. It will be wonderful when we can all join him with our friends and families too!

To make my card this week, I started off with a white card base of 6″ x 6″. I cut out another piece of paper using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock the same size as the base card. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug using Stampin’ Up – Sizzix Big Shot – Seaside. I loved the wavy pattern it created. Next, I used multiple Tim Holtz shades of blue to create the water effect. All colours are listed below.

I used my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and white cardstock for my image and sentiment. I stamped the sentiment and image onto the die cuts and then coloured in the main image with Copic markers. The background was coloured in using a variety of Copic Refill inks, Colorless Blender and a Q-Tip. For the water, I wisped several colours back and forth and then added some Copic Colorless Blender and wisped the colours one last time. Once everything was completed, ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station so that it would lay completely flat on the blue cardstock I mounted it onto. I cut a thin border all away around the image and inked around the edges of the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy.  Then popped the image and the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the base card. I added in a some sea shells from Dress It Up – Beach Collection and Craftin’ Desert Divas – Seashells Sequence. I just removed the button portion and then used glue dots to attach to the card.

Greatest Fisherman


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Norman – Q038 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Worlds Greatest Fisherman – H159 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Norman is very happy today as he caught a magnificent Lobster. My dad LOVES fishing and can’t wait to go fishing again. Hopefully, that time will come soon and then he’ll be smiling just like Norman with his big catch of the day!

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I used Belle Blvd – Secrets of the Sea paper for the main background.

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then die cut it with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles. I cut a slightly larger circle out of Orange cardstock with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles and glued it down on top of the background paper. I coloured in the background using a variety of Copic Refill inks, Colorless Blender and a Q-Tip which I used to apply the colours. For the water, I wisped several colours back and forth and then added some Copic Colorless Blender and wisped the colours one last time. Lastly, I added some white caps by dabbing Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point onto the surface. I completed colouring in the rest of the image with Copic markers and then popped it and the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The sentiment was die cut with Die-Namics MFT-489 PCD Fishtail Figs STX.

Have You Herd The News???


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I couldn’t wait to colour up this super adorable image called Funny Farm – T065 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  I also thought that the sentiment – Have You Herd The News – G080 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) was perfect for these little characters. Their facial expressions, just make you wonder what it is that is so secret that they can’t wait to tell you!! Hmmmm! Could it be a birthday surprise, or maybe a new baby is coming? or someone is retiring??? or someone just graduated???? This combo could be use for so many possibilities and that is why it was so much fun to play with.

Above is the card from the front angle and below is the card from the top angle.

To make my card this week, I started off with a green cardstock base of 5.5″ x 11″. Then I scored it at 5.5″ and 2.75″ on one side from the edge to make it a pop-up card. I also cut another piece of cardstock at about 4-1/8″ x 5.25″. I added some patterned paper from DCWV – Fashion District to this piece and to the inside bottom of the card, cut to the same size. Next, used My Mind’s Eye – Lost & Found paper cut at 3.75″ x 5″ which I popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Before attaching the background papers, I edged around them with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Shabby Shutters.

I die-cut the main image out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cricut and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set. Then I stamped the image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. After that, I coloured in the image using Copic markers. For the background, I used a new technique that I learned. First I used a Q-Tip to moisten the background with some Copic Colorless Blender and then I used a mixture of Copic Re-inkers listed below with a Q-Tip to create the sky and grass. Love this technique, as it is quick and easy. After colouring the image, I inked around the edges with the same Tim Holtz ink and then popped up the image using some 3M VHD – 2 sided tape.

I die cut the sentiment using the same die set that I used for the main image and then stamped the sentiment with Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink. I mounted it with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto Joy Crafts – Artist Trading Card Wood Texture cardstock. Then, I popped up the entire base background and sentiment with Forever in Time – Pop-Dot Adhesives onto the inside base of the card.

I attached the finished image that was mounted onto the background papers onto the lower half of the card that had been scored at 2.75″ earlier, leaving the top half empty.

4 Alarm Birthday!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Fireman Matthew – S017 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and 4 Alarm Day – H059 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Fireman Matthew is prepped and ready to put out the fire from all of those flames rising up from the birthday candles on your cake! He even has a lot of little firetrucks on standby too, just in case! LOL!

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 6″ x 6″. I used Echo Park – Scoot by Deena Rutter paper for the background. I just loved those little firetrucks. My older brother used to be a fireman, so I was always looking for background paper to go with the Fireman stamps I would find to make his cards.

I created the brick background by embossing some brown tan paper, using my Cuttlebug and Darice – Brick Wall Embossing Folder. Then I used a mixture of Tim Holtz brown inks listed below to create the texture for the wall. I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then coloured the image in with Copic Markers. Once it was coloured in, I fussy cut around it and went along all of the edges with a black marker.

The sentiment was long and I wanted to make it square, so I did it in several steps. Using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I covered the portion of the stamp with tape that I didn’t want to stamp. Inked the portion that I wanted and then removed the tape. Then I stamped it, cleaned it off and moved the tape to the next portion that I didn’t want to stamp. I did this 3 times to get the result seen in this photo. This allowed me to make the sentiment into a square. Once this was done, I die cut it out using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out.

I ran both the die-cut sentiment and finished coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station. Then I mounted the image onto the brick wall and the sentiment onto some red cardstock. I used my cutter to create a nice square for the sentiment. Next I went around the entire card with Tim Holtz – Fired Brick Distress Ink and popped up the brick wall and sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added in some water droplets using Stickles – Ice Blue to finish off the card.

Rainy Day Smiles


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Mary Angel – Q020 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Rainy Rainy Day – H048 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. We are in for a lot of rain in the next little while here, but Mary is well prepared for it with her adorable little boots and is ready to play in the puddles. Did you love playing in the puddles with your rain boots when you were little too?

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 6″ x 6″. I used Forever in Time – Splish Splash paper for the background as I thought it went so well with this image. The background paper is double-sided and I loved how well it went together to frame the image and sentiment. I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured the image in with Copic Markers. Once it was coloured in, I fussy cut around it and used B01 to fill in all of the white space as it matched the background paper so well. For the sentiment, I thought it would be cute to turn it into an umbrella as well. To do this, I stamped the sentiment and then drew an umbrella shape around it. I used a scrap piece of copic paper and drew the handle for it and then coloured it and cut it out as well. To finish off the card, I popped up the image and the sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added some Ranger Inkssentials – Glossy Accents onto the water and droplets, Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear to the wings, Mary’s umbrella and pockets on the raincoat. Unfortunately, the glitter isn’t showing up in the picture.

Friends for Heifer!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Clarabelle and Riley – Q032 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Friends for Heifer – G183 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Riley thought Clarabelle could use a big hug. It will be so nice when we can get back together again with friends and family and give them a big hug too!

To make my card this week, I thought I would keep it simple. I thought the cow print from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Down on the Farm went with this card beautifully. I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured the image in with Copic Markers. Once I coloured the image in, I carefully placed it behind the patterned paper and then placed it onto my card base sized 5.5″ x 5.5″. I inked around the edges of the card with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot and added a little black bow to finish it off.

Butterfly Kisses!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Bessie Buggies Bloom – S173 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Butterfly Kisses – D007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Bessie is all set for Spring and flowers blooming. I’m not very good with flowers, but my husband has a green thumb and is really good at keeping our flower garden looking beautiful every year.

To make this card I started off with a base card of 6″ x 6″. I fell in love with this background paper as it suited the sentiment and the darling little butterfly “Bessie” so well. I tried to colour Bessie’s wings and outfit to match the colours of the other butterflies in the background.

Once the image was coloured, I added some Wink of Stella – Clear to the wings. Unfortunately, it doesn’t show up in the picture. I die cut the finished image using my Cuttlebug and circle dies and then I die cut a black circle to layer it onto. I thought this made the image pop. I stamped the sentiment and also layered that onto some black cardstock. I then popped up the sentiment and the image with 3M VHB – 2 sides tape. To finish off the card, I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Bessie Buggies Bloom – S173 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sunny Days Ahead


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Sunny Days Ahead – P004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). I searched to find colours that represented each word going around the image and found the following: Faith – Pink, Courage – Red, Hope – Blue and Victory – Purple and so this is how I coloured this image. I believe these words speak for themselves and in the days to come, we will all see the sun shining brighter days upon us all.

The card base is 5″ x 5″. I layered each of the papers and coloured image on black cardstock to pop the colours. I chose the paper of the children holding hands to represent the day when we can all get back to normal and hold hands and play together with our loved ones again. The chain link patterned paper represents how we are all linked together in doing our part to stay strong and healthy, and to give each other the hope, faith and courage to be victorious in the sunny days ahead. I popped up the final layer with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added in some black pop dots to complete this card.

Card Recipe:

May Your Day Be Filled With Love!!


It’s Wednesday, and I’m back this week to start off April with lots and lots of love from Elmer the Elephant using Elmer Elephant – Q043 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Large Filled With Love – H004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. With everything happening in the world right now, I think we could all use a little bit of love. When I was a child, Elmer was also called Elmer the Safety Elephant, so I hope that you and all of your loved ones are keeping safe right now too!

To make this card I first die cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) and my Cuttlebug. Next I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the image and the sentiment. I coloured in the image using Copic markers. Then I created my own background using a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Festive Berries, Spun Sugar and Picked Raspbery and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Happy Hearts Stencil. I also did all around the edges with the Picked Raspberry. Lastly, added in the bottom border of hearts using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted which I ran through my Cuttlebug twice with 2 different red cardstock. Then I inlayed the lighter colour into the darker hearts. I had also ran the cardstock through my Xyron Create a Sticker beforehand to make the die-cut work like a sticker and easy to inlay. I also used one of the small hearts for the “o” in “Love” and added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen – Red Berry on top of it. Finally, I mounted the finished image onto a white base card 5.5″ x 4.25″.

It’s Wednesday, and Easter is quickly approaching. So for this week, I used Carrot Express – S055 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Canadian Easter Greetings – H139 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To put this card together, I first die-cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Next, I stamped the image with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink using my MISTI to get a nice clean image. I put the die-cut back over the image again and used it for a template to get a nice clean white border. I created a mask out of the image and used the die-cut from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean to create the sky background.

I mounted the plaid paper from Recollections – Easter Paper onto a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″and then edged around the image and card with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and embossed the sentiment using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and VersaMark.

I edged around all of the die cuts with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Rasberry. To finish off the card I added in a few hearts. The card base is 4.25″ x 5.5″.

Gone Fishing!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I used Anthony James – R022 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Gone Fishing Sign – G103 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

I come from a family that LOVES fishing. My dad has always loved fishing and now my older brother has fallen into his foot steps of loving to fish too. I remember going fishing with my dad and I thought I had a really, really big fish. We were all so excited until I pulled up a big chunk of grass reeds. LOL! The fish were jumping all around us, but we couldn’t seem to catch any that 1 day.

As soon as we were back on shore, you could see the huge fish playing all over the lake. I think they were just laughing at us. But I’m not a 100% sure. LOL!

To make the card, I first used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) to cut out the main image from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out to die cut the square out of some white cardstock. Then I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink to get a nice crisp image. I used various Copic markers listed below to colour in the image.

I decided to colour in the fish with PrismaColor pencils on the sentiment.

Next I ran both the coloured image and the sentiment through my Xyron Creative Station and placed both cuts over top of some green cardstock. Then I popped both up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

The base of the card is 5.5″ x 5.5″. I edged around the card and sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Bundled Sage. For a final touch, I added a little fish under the sentiment.

Do you have an Easter tradition of painting eggs too?

Happy St. Paddy’s Day!


It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share this adorable little Leprechaun who is happily sitting on his pot of gold. My grandmother was Irish and so I’ve been celebrating St. Patrick’s Day since I was a little girl. My mom decorates the entire house with Shamrocks and Leprechauns each year to celebrate the occasion. LOL!

To create this card I used Lucky’s Pot O’ Gold – P030 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Fancy St. Paddy’s – G147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

I stamped the image and then used Copic markers to colour in the image. For the rainbow, I used a circle from the My Creative Time dies as a stencil and the chisel side of the markers. Once coloured, I mounted all of the various papers and layers onto 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn.

It’s No Mystery!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Little Sleuth – R205 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for my main image and No Mystery – H204 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). This little sleuth has uncovered the clue to why he is so in love with his special someone. This card could be used for Valentine’s Day, Anniversary or even a birthday!

To make the background for the card, I die cut multiple squares using My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out in various brown cardstock and some white Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock.

For the brick background, I used Darice – Brick Wall Embossing Folder and then various Tim Holtz inks listed below to give the different colours for the texture.

I coloured in the main image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it and used a black marker to go around all of the edges.

I layered all of the pieces together using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop them up and then 2-sided tape to mount the final square onto the 6″ x 6″ card base.

To finish off the card, I used some brown twine and criss-crossed it to make a little bow and added in the question mark using some clear gems that I coloured with E23.
