You’re How Old??


Sharing a CAS birthday card that I made today using KLM Digital DesignThinking Gnome from the new November 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “Just thinking of you” and “Thinking of you makes my day”. This little gnome is thinking really hard to figure out how old you are this year! LOL!

To make my card this week, I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Echo Park – Happy Birthday paper was cut to the same size and adhered directly to the base using double-sided tape! The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and then fussy cut around it. I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it onto a small piece of Recollections – Black cardstock and fussy cut around it again. Using a Cuttlebug and dies from Sizzix Framelits – Banner Dies, I die cut the sentiment and a larger banner using Echo Park – Happy Birthday paper. With a blender brush, I inked over the sentiment die cut to give it a shade of green colour. With Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles and a finger dauber, I inked around the 2 banners and all around the card. The larger banner was adhered directly to the card using liquid glue. The image and sentiment were both popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape. YNS Gumdrops – Tropical Paradise were added to the card to finish it off.

Have A Hoppy Day!!


Sharing a birthday card that I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Hang In There Frog from the new November 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Take a leap of faith” and “Hang in there”.

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured the image in and then fussy cut around it. Using a black marker, I inked around the image.

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5″ x 4.25″ card base. Using multiple Tim Holtz Distress Inks and a blender brush, I created the background sky directly on the card base. The leafy border was die cut using Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, a Cuttlebug and Lawn Fawn – Tropical Leaves Backdrop dies. With multiple Tim Holtz inks and a blender brush I inked over the die cut and some extra leaves from the same die set. Then with Copic markers, I made some of the leaves a little darker to give the background some contrast.

Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D Foam Strips were attached to the back of the large die cut. I applied some glue to the ends of the vine for the frog and attached them to the leaves. Once the glue was dry, I added more Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D Foam Strips to the back of the coloured image. Both pieces were now attached to the base card. I applied some glue to the individual leaves and applied them directly to the base card underneath the die cut. Lastly, I die cut the sentiment using a Cuttlebug and Poppystamps – Christmas Quotes die. I inked around the edges of the die cut with a black marker and then glued it to the tops of the leaves to finish off the card.

To make my card this week, I started with a 6″ x 6″ card base using AC Cardstock – White. Using double-sided tape, I attached the patterned cardstock of the same size from Signature Collection by Sara Davies – Winter Wonderland.  The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Cuttlebug and Gina Marie Designs – Big and Little Pierced Chain Oval Layered Dies, I die cut the image and then coloured it in. With a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, I added snow into the sky. Stickles – Diamond was added to the snow on the ground and snowballs to add some sparkle. Stickles – Crystal was added around the oval and the coloured image was set aside to dry. I fussy cut around the sentiment and then ran the pieces through a Xyron Create a Sticker. The pieces were adhered to Recollections – Black cardstock and then fussy cut again. After everything was dry, U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the sentiment pieces and the image. These were all popped up onto the background paper.

Present Gnomes


Sharing a Christmas card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Pre-Colored – Present Gnome – Blue and Pre-Coloured – Present Gnome – Yellow from the new October 2022 release. Christmas is not that far away now and it’s time for me to create more cards for the holidays.

To make my card this week, I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background paper from PhotoPlay – Gnome for the Holidays Christmas to be the same size and attached it to the base card with double-sided tape. I cut some green cardstock to the size of 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″. U-line double-sided tape was attached to the piece and it was popped up onto the centre of the card. Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper was cut to the size of 4.75″ x 3.5″. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, I inked around the base card and the snowflake piece.

The images were imported into Microsoft Word and I layered them together before I printed them out and fussy cut around them leaving a thin white border. I cut the snow piece to be 4.75″ x 1″ using Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” and then tore it look like drifting snow. I glued along the bottom of this piece with liquid glue and adhered it to the snowflake patterned paper. Using liquid glue, I attached the gnomes on top and behind the snow. I applied liquid glue to the finished piece and centred it onto the green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on to a scrap piece of blue cardstock using Versamark ink and then applied Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heating Tool. I die cut the circle using a 1″ Circle punch and then applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean around it. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the sentiment and it was popped up onto the card. Lastly, to finish everything off, some Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Sequins were added around the sentiment.

Fido’s Hallowe’en


Sharing a Hallowe’en slim line card I made today using KLM Digital DesignFido – Hallowe’en Freebie from the new October 2022 release.  Fido is all set for Trick or Treating with his little “Bee” outfit. Do you dress up your pets for Hallowe’en too?

To make my card this week, I started with a 7″ x 7″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored this at 3.5″, so that the final card base measured 3.5″ x 7″. To create my background, I die cut the haunted house and path using an Anna Griffin Empress Mini cutting Machine, Recollections – Black cardstock and Say It With Stamps – #6 Haunted House Coverplate Die. The little bats were cut from the same die set at the same time. For the yellow behind the windows I cut a solid piece using Momenta – Cardstock. I glued this into place on the back of the die cut using liquid glue. I love how the Momenta paper had the colour variations of yellow. Using the die cut as a reference as to where to place the background colours, I applied a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks for the sky listed below and Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the path with Gina K. Designs blending brushes. Once the background was coloured in, I applied glue to the back of the die cut and adhered it to the card. Using the same cutting machine again, I die cut the sentiments 3 times using scrap pieces of orange and black cardstock which I had run through my Xyron Create a Sticker first so that it would be easier to attach them on top of each other later. I pieced them all together and attached them to the card. The 3 bats were then placed around the sentiment.

The image was imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The images were coloured in and then Wink of Stella – Clear was applied to the wings to make them sparkly.  Both images were fussy cut and U-Line double-sided tape was applied to both and they were popped up onto the card to finish it off.

Stamp:  Fido – Hallowe’en Freebie – KLM Digital Designs

Not Tadpoles Anymore!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Frogotful Frog from the new September 2022 release. This image also comes with 3 more sentiments, “Have I Toad you lately that I love you?”, “Sorry, I Frogot!” and “Toadily Happy”. As we get older, we need to keep a sense of humour about aging! I couldn’t resist the sentiment that came with this adorable image, as it is so true. LOL!

 

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I drew a big rock onto the same paper and then coloured both images in and fussy cut around them.

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5″ x 5″ card base. Stampin’ UP! – Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper was cut to be the same size and applied to the base using double-sided tape. Bo Bunny – Willow & Sage was cut to the size of 5″ x 1.5″ and then inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Saltwater Taffy. This was applied to the base background with double-sided tape as well. Once again, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Saltwater Taffy and a finger dauber were used to ink around all of the edges of the card.

U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the rock and the frog. A double layer of the tape was added to the top half of the frog and then both images were popped up onto the card base. The sentiment was put through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then fussy cut. The pieces were adhered to Recollections – Black cardstock. I fussy cut around the sentiment pieces again and applied U-Line double-sided tape to them and popped them up onto the lower half of the card. Using Anna Griffin Empress Mini die-cutting Machine, Lawn Fawn – Stitched Pond Frame and some small scraps of paper, the cat-tails were created. The pieces were put through the Xyron Create a Sticker and adhered to the card behind the rock.

Lastly, to finish off the card, some embellishments were added using Doodlebug Design Inc. – Sprinkles Spring Assortment pop dots and the little frog from Dress It UP – Wild and Wacky.

A Good Guy


Sharing a CAS card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Fido and Friend Male from the new September 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “Thank You for being a wonder friend” and “Every snack you bake, Every meal you bake, Every bit you take, I’ll be watching you”. I think this last sentiment is so true for our furry friends. LOL! I chose the sentiment I used on this card because I know I found my 4 leaf lucky clover and he became my wonderful, kind, caring and loving husband.

To make my card this week, I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image and sentiment were cut to be the same size as the base and the image was coloured in. This was then applied to the base card using double-sided tape.

Wizard


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Owl Gnome from the new August 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “Owl-ways friends” and “Have a wicked Day!”. Creating the spiral background with Stickles Glitter Gel was a little out of my comfort zone, but I love how the background turned out. I thought it went very well with this image and sentiment. What do you think?

To make my card this week, I started with creating my background first. I wanted to create a mystical background and I couldn’t quite decide between using white or black for the base. I finally decided to try black and I fell in love with the results. A Colorful Life Designs – Striped Spiral Stencil was placed over top of Recollections – Black cardstock. Using a spatula for even coverage over the stencil, Stickles Glitter Gel – Galaxy, Aquarius and Pegasus were added to the spirals. I carefully lifted off the stencil and set the background aside to dry. Once it was all dry, I felt that is was missing something. I didn’t like just the solid black behind and in between the spirals, so I decided to add in guess what? More glitter! LOL! This time, using my small spatula, I added Stickles Glitter Gel – Moon Dust over top of everything. This created the magical effect that I was looking for and I could still see the colourful spirals. Once again, the background was set aside to dry.

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in and then I fussy cut all around it and the sentiment words. Using my Xyron Create a Sticker, I ran the sentiment words through it and then applied it to a scrap piece of Recollections – Purple Passions cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around the sentiment words leaving a small border. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment pieces.

The card was now ready to assemble. I created the base card using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 5.5″. I cut down the background piece that I had created earlier to be the same size and then using double-sided tape adhered it to the base. I added a little bit of glue to the U-Line double sided tape that I had applied earlier to the backs of the sentiment pieces and main image and then popped them up onto the background to complete the card.

Stamp and Sentiment:  Owl Gnome – KLM Digital Designs

Best Friends


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Fido and Friend Girl from the new August 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “Admit it, life would be boring without me”, which is something that I always say to my husband, LOL! “Always better together” is another sentiment included with this adorable image.

The bond and love between a person and their pet is an unbreakable bond. We tend to share our happy times, hopes, dreams and sad times with them. They always listen to us and make us feel even better no matter what comes our way. We also share a lot of these times with our human best friends too, but I think our fur babies tend to know all of our secrets more than anyone.

To make my card this week, I started with a 6″ x 6″ card base using AC White cardstock. Stampin’ Up – Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper was applied to the base using double-sided tape. I cut a piece of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock to the size of 4.25″ x 5.5″. With various Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide – Speckled Egg, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink – Cracked Pistachio, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink – Salty Ocean and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink – Salvaged Patina, I created my own background that I wanted to use behind the image. Then, with my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and PinkFresh Studio Essentials – Blanket Stitched Oval, I die-cut an oval out of it and added some grass using Copic markers.

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in and then I fussy cut all around the image and used a black marker to go around all of the edges. The sentiment was also fussy cut and then I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber around the edges of it and also all around the sides of the card. Yellow ribbon and aqua ribbon were put together by first using double-sided tape to add the aqua portion to the yellow portion. Using my Xyron Create a Sticker, I ran the combined ribbon through it and then applied the ribbon to card, cutting off the excess on either side. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the die cut, image and sentiment pieces and then they were all popped up onto the card. Finally, YNS Gumdrops – Sugar Rush Sparkly were added to complete the card.

Sunflower Puppy


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Sunflower Fido from the new July 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “Always look on the bright side!” and “Like Wildflowers, You must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.” I’ve always been mesmerized by the beauty of sunflowers and how tall they grow. Of course, eating sunflower seeds is also a lot of fun too!

I created a 6″ x 6″ card base using AC White Cardstock cardstock. Stampin’ Up – Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper was applied to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Gina Marie Designs – Ric Rac Nested Circle Dies, I die-cut Stampin’ Up – Simply Marbleous Designer Paper. With Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch and a small sponge dauber, I inked around all of the edges of the card base and the die cut.

I 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. After, I finished colouring the image, I fussy cut all around it and used a black marker to go around all of the edges. I used my cutter to cut around the sentiment and then ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then placed it onto Forever In Time – Sky cardstock. I cut the paper again leaving a slim border around the sentiment. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the ric rac die cut.  U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the die cut and sentiment piece and both were popped up onto the card. Finally, YNS Gumdrops – Circus Fun Matte Gumdrops were added to complete the card.

I 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. I fussy cut around the image and added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it. Using Tonic Studios Craft Perfect – Iridescent Mirror Card – Tidal Wave cardstock, I cut out 6 little droplets of water. Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Whimsy Stamps – Wavy Nested Frame Dies Set, I die cut the puddle out of the same paper. Just love how this paper looks like water. I ran the water pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then adhered them to Scrapbook.com – Jewels Smooth Cardstock. I popped the image on top of the main puddle. Once this was all done, I fussy cut around the image and water droplets and added U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of all of the pieces and set them aside.

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardsstock. I cut the background paper using Forever In Time – Splish Splash (SP344U) paper and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. I used my cutter to cut around the sentiment and then a corner rounder for the 4 corners. I applied some Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean around the edges with a sponge dauber and then added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it.

Love and Cake!


Sharing a birthday card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Chef Gnome – Cake from the new June 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “If we are what we eat, well, I’m pretty sweet!” and “If the cake fits, eat it!”. My mom always made our birthdays very special by creating special cake designs every year for each of our birthdays growing up. As a child, I never liked cake, but my mom used to wrap some change into tin foil and hide it in the cake. When all of my friends left, I would take a knife and cut through the cake to get all of the change out to put into my piggy bank. LOL! Unfortunately for me, I developed a sweet tooth when I got older and met my husband who has a really big sweet tooth. Only difference is he manages to keep the weight off. LOL!

I 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. I added some Wink of Stella – Clear to the icing and then I fussy cut around the coloured image. Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Die-Namics MFT-489 PCD Fishtail Figs STX dies, I die cut the sentiment and also some Aqua cardstock.

The 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base was created using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardsstock. I cut the patterned paper from Echo Parks Paper Co. – Birthday Wishes to the size of 5.5″ x 3.5″ and attached it to the centre of the base using double-sided tape. Two .5″ strips were cut from Yellow Cardstock and then put through my Xyron with one strip attached at the top and one strip on the bottom of the card. The Aqua die cut was added to the right side using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mustard Seed was used to ink around all of the edges of the card. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the image and the sentiment and popped them both up onto the background. YNS Gumdrops – Celebration Sparkly Gumdrops were added to the top and bottom strips. Lastly, to finish off my card, I ran Art Impresisons – 5335 – Kitchen Mini Dies through the Anna Griffin Empress Mini die cutting machine using Crafter’s Companion Luxury Cardstock – Silver. I ran the 2 pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached them both to the sentiment tag.

High Tides


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Beach Gnome from the new May 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Life is better at the beach” and “Enjoy the little things”.

I 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. I created the pattern on his shirt to make it look a little wild. Using scissors, I fussy cut around the coloured image. I also fussy cut around the sentiment, splitting it into 2 parts. I ran them through a Xyron Create a Sticker and adhered them directly to Recollections – Black cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around the sentiments. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the sentiment and image and set them aside.

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardsstock. I cut another panel to be the same size as the card base. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Squeezed Lemonade ink, a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Sunburst stencil, I created the sunny background. I did this by first laying down the yellow background and then putting the stencil over top to make the sun rays a little brighter. Using Krafty Kolours – Sandy Shores ink, I created the sandy shore. For the waves, I thought the paper from Bo Bunny – Down by the Sea Collection was perfect. Using the coloured image as a guide for placement, I cut along the wavy lines with the piece measuring approximately 1.75″ x 4.25″. Using a finger dauber and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough, I inked along the top and bottom of the waves to remove the white. Using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush, I added a bit of tint to the patterned paper. Using glue, I attached it to the background panel. I added in a small shadow under the sandals with Copic markers.

The card was now ready to assemble. I attached the panel to the base card using double-sided tape. I removed the tape backing from the image and sentiment and popped them both up onto the card. Using a button shank remover, I removed the backs to the Dress It Up Buttons. I applied some glue to the backs of each of them and placed them onto the card to finish it off.

Born to Be Wild!!


Sharing a card that I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Pre-Colored MotorCycle Gnome from the new May 2022 release.  I remember how refreshing it was when I was younger going for rides on a motorcycle during hot weather!

Using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, I created a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut a panel to be the same size out of the same cardstock. The mountains were created using Kraftin’ Kimmie – Krafty Scenery 2 and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo, Picket Fence – Blending Brush and blocking off the base of the mountains with a long Post-It Note. Once the mountains were in place, I created the clouds using Lawn Fawn Cuts – Cloudy Stencil, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. I die cut the road using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine, My Favourite Things – Die-Namics – Open Road MFT-1138 out of Recollections – Black paper. I measured it to the line of the mountains and cut it. Using this as a guide, with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush, I created the grass.

Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Stampin’ Cut & Emboss – Pine Wood Dies, I die cut all of the trees using Scrapbook.com – Jewels Smooth Cardstock and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow. I coloured the trunks using Copic marker E27. I applied the bottom trees with glue and then popped up the front trees with Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D Foam Strips. I imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I fussy cut around the image and added 2 layers of U-Line double-sided tape to it and popped it up onto the road to complete the card.
