Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. was used at the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ to create the base card. I added double-sided tape to the back of the image and attached it directly to the base.

Anniversary Gnomes!!


Sharing a card I made today combining the image from KLM Digital Designs April Release called Bride Gnome and image and sentiment from Groom Gnome. These images could be used separately or together and come with multiple sentiments.

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then I printed them out again on regular copy paper and used my Brother Scan and Cut  to cut around them. I used these as masks over top of the coloured images. Using multiple Tim Holtz inks listed below, I created the sky with a stencil I had created from Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die and grass stencil I created from Lawn Fawn – Grassy Hillside Borders.

For the base card, Recollections – Christmas Cards and envelopes paper was used at the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I die cut the finished coloured image with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) and glued it to the base.

Gardening Gnome!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs new April Release called Tulip Planter Gnome. He loves gardening and so does my husband. My husband has a real green thumb and always makes our garden and flowers look amazing! Unfortunately, I’ve never been very good with plants. I think they shrivel in fear when they see me coming!!! LOL!

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers.

For the base card, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper was used at the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I used Leane Creatif BV – Art.nr.35.0225 embossing folder and AC Autumn cardstock for the base background. After I embossed the paper, I used a very light sandpaper to sand off the raised elements. I cut 2 ovals using some spare cardstock using Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals. The outside of the smaller oval and card were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Forest Moss. I cut out the sentiment with my small cutter and then mounted it on top of some dark brown cardstock. Using my cutter, I created the small border. I die cut the little garden trowel with Marianne Designs Collectibles – COL1346 using silver and brown paper scraps.

To assemble the card, I mounted the embossed background directly to the base using 2-sided tape. The larger oval was glued on. The smaller oval, coloured image, and sentiment were all applied using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Lastly, to finish off the card, I glued on the trowel and added a few YNS Gumdrops.

Easter Gnome!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Easter Delivery Gnome from the new March release. This Easter gnome is collecting coloured eggs for the Easter Bunny to hand out to all of the little children. This stamp comes with 2 more sentiments as well as the one shown here on my card. “Easter Blessings” and “some bunny loves you”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5.5″ x 4.25″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and my cutter to cut around the sentiment and scissors to round the corners. The image and sentiment were coloured in with Copic markers.

For the base card, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper was used at the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I die cut the base to be same size using Your Next Stamp – Happy Spring paper and used double-sided tape to attach it directly to the base card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was used to ink around the edges. Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones was cut to 5.5″ x 3″ and glued on top of the patterned paper. Lastly, I had some watercolour paper that I had created a pattern on using some inks, a roller and Gel plate from a class a few years back. I though it went great with the colour scheme and almost look like a wood pattern. This was cut to 5.5″ x 2.5″ and glued on top of the Purple paper. To complete the card, I attached both the sentiment and image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added a few Your Next Stamp Gumdrops.

Might Need Some Help!!


My older brother is a retired fireman. Today, I’m sharing this fun image and sentiment from KLM Digital Designs called Fireman Gnome that I made for his birthday.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5.5″ x 4.25″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I printed out a second image onto regular paper with just the fireman and then used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image. The cut out image was used as a mask over top of the main image while I created the flames in the background. I used a variety of Tim Holtz inks listed below and the stencil from Honey Bee Stamps – Flames.

Once the background was completed, I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then, I attached the image to the base using double-sided tape. My brother loved his card and I hope you do too!

Gnome – Thanks!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Chillin’ At Home Gnome from the new March release. This gnome is just sitting back and relaxing enjoying the beautiful day outside. This stamp comes with 2 more sentiments as well as the one shown here on my card. “Keep smiling, life is to short”, which is soooo true and also, “Miss You”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5.5″ x 4.25″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I fussy cut around the image as I had accidentally splattered some of the red Copic marker onto the original background. Grrrr! Which turned out to be OK anyways, as I cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and created my background directly onto it using some templates that I created from cloud dies and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean for the sky. I just used Copic markers to colour in the sky on the image I fussy cut for between the fence posts. This way I didn’t have to fussy cut between each one. For the grass, I started out with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn for my base and then used the Copic markers listed below to add more texture.

Once the image and back ground were both complete, I ran the main image through my Xyron Creative Station as I wanted it to lay completely flat onto the background. Finally, I applied some 2-side tape to the base card and attached the finished background and image.

You will make amazing parents!”.

To make my CAS card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5.5″ x 4.25″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers.

Birthday Girl!!


Sharing image and sentiment from KLM Digital Designs today from the new February release called Karah’s Cupcake. This stamp set comes with 3 sentiments. This image brings back memories of when I was little and my mom used to bake us fancy cakes and cupcakes for our birthdays every year.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5″ x 3.6″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I had a few issues with her hair using my markers, so I used PrismaColor pencils to try and fix it. For the shadow behind the girl, I just used the same 2 markers several times on the background wall. I die cut some pink cardstock using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set and then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry.

I used Hot Buy Recollections Card base of 5.25″ x 4.25″ for the base and attached the die cut directly to the base using double-sided tape. The completed image was popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish off the card.

Your Dino-Mite!!


Sharing the third and last image and sentiment from KLM Digital Designs today from the new February release called Dinosaur Collection. The images are great for masculine cards! This image and sentiment is also great for a young person’s birthday too!

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5.5″ x 4.25″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. The eyes were all black in the original image. I used Sakura Glaze – Black to make the eyes stand out more. Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen was then used to create the whites of the eyes and Copic marker G07 was added to give them some colour. Finally, Pigma Micron 03 black marker was used to give the dinosaur some eyelashes. Once all of the colouring was completed, I attached the image to the base using double-sided tape.

As a side note, I used Jess Crafts – Colouring Mountains at Dawn Youtube video for some inspiration on colouring the mountains in the background.

Over The Hill Dinosaur!!


Sharing the first image and sentiment from KLM Digital Designs today from the new February release called Dinosaur Collection. Love this collection and the images are great for masculine cards too! Over the next few days, more images and sentiments from this set will be posted. Watch for them! LOL!

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer and coloured it in with Copic markers. Microsoft Word was used to import the shape and line weight of 3 was used for the thickness. I imported the sentiment and sized it to fit inside the shape. This was printed out on Recollections – White cardstock and then I used my cutter to keep the lines straight.

To add some dimension to the card, I die cut some small clouds using Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD002 – Sky using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper. Copic markers were used to add some colour to them. My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out die was used to cut out the main image and Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Squares – Set B were used to die cut the larger square using Recollections – Black cardstock.

To assemble the card, the 2 squares were attached using double-sided tape. The clouds and sentiment were popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Larger cloud was attached with Tombow glue.

Polar Bear and Friend!!


Sharing this adorable image called Polar Bear and Friend from KLM Digital Designs today from the January release. This set comes with 3 sentiments, “You are Amazing”, “You’re My Sunshine on a Rainy Day” and “Best Friends Forever”, which I used on my card.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers. The sentiment was brought into Microsoft Word.  I imported the shape within Microsoft Word and used a weight of 3 for the solid line. Then, I brought the sentiment to the front and centred it in the middle of the shape. I printed this out on Recollections White cardstock and then just fussy cut around it.

I used AC White paper to create the base shape of the card 12″ x 6″. I scored the paper at 6″. I used Recollections – Blue Ombre Cardstock for the main background, cut to the same size as the base card. This was attached using double-sided tape.

Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. Penny Black – Winter Roof die was used to die cut the icicles. The snow drifts on the bottom of the card were die cut using dies from Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders. Once the icicles and snow drifts were die cut, I used the Tattered Lace die cut again so that everything would layer to the shape of the smaller rectangle. I used my Cuttlebug and Cuttlebug – Snow Dots stencil twice to create the texture to the larger rectangle. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel was added to the icicles and front layer of snow. Stickles – Diamond was used to add texture to the back snow drift. Once everything was dry, I inked around all of the outside edges of the snow, rectangular shapes and main background with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch.

To assemble the card, I used double-sided tape to attach the large rectangle shape directly to the base card. The smaller rectangle shape was assembled separately, then attached to the larger rectangular shape using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Tombo glue was used to add the icicles and layers of snow to the smaller rectangluar shape. The image and sentiment were popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To complete the card, Stickles – Diamond was added below the bear to create a shadow and also some streaks along the snow.

Happy Bee-lated!!


Sharing a bee-lated birthday card I made using this adorable image called Bee Gnome from KLM Digital Designs today. This adorable image also comes with 3 sentiments.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers. To add some honey coming out of the large jar, I used a Q-Tip and VersaMark ink to create the overflow and then added Emerald Creek – Seth Apter – Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture embossing powder. This was heat set using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I did this twice. The image was put through my Xyron Creative Station to turn the image into a sticker. I attached the image to some black cardstock and fussy cut around the image again.

I used Hammermill paper to create the base shape of the card 8.5″ x 4.25″. I scored the paper at 4.25″. I opened up Microsoft Word and imported the background papers from Bee Digital Paper – Digital Designs and Art. For the main background I sized the image to to 5.25″ x 4″. I drew 2 large ovals within the Microsoft Word application and made 1 black and the other a honey yellow colour. I imported the sentiment from Bee Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) and placed it in front of the smaller oval. Then I printed out everything on my printer. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber was used to ink around all of the sides of the background paper.

To assemble the card, I added double-sided tape to the back of the background paper and attached it directly to the base. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the back of the image then popped up on the front of the card. Lastly, I added some bee embellishments from Buttons Galore & More – Spring Fling Collection – SF100 Busy Bees using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

St. Patty’s Day 2021!!


Sharing this adorable image called St. Patty’s Day Gnome from KLM Digital Designs today from the new February release. My grandmother and her family migrated from Ireland to Canada many, many years ago, so St. Patrick’s Day is extra special to our family. We even used to joke that my one Uncle looked like a Leprechaun. LOL! May the luck of the Irish be with you all this coming St. Patrick’s Day.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.

I used Hammermill paper to create the base shape of the card 8.5″ x 4.25″. I scored the paper at 4.25″. I opened up Microsoft Word and imported the background papers from Leska’s Digitals – St. Patrick’s Day. For the main background I sized the image to to 5.5″ x 4.25″ and then imported the sentiment from KLM Digital Designs St. Patty’s Day Gnome and gave it a green background. I brought the sentiment to the front on the main background so that it would print out in one piece. For the smaller oval, I imported the image from Leska’s Digitals – St. Patrick’s Day papers and sized it to 4.25″ x 3.5″.

For the inside of the card, I imported the papers image and then sized it at 5.25″ x 4″. I drew a white rectangle at 4.75″x3.5″ and placed it over top of the background. I imported the images for the 2 KLM sentiments St. Patty’s Day Gnome and brought them to the front within Microsoft Word. I also added a small square with a larger shamrock. Then I printed out everything on my printer.

I used Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals to die cut the background oval and green oval on the front of the card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Forest Moss was used to ink around all of the edges of the card and the ovals. Using double sided tape, I attached the large background directly to the base of the card and the sentiment print out to the inside of the card. I fussy cut around the large shamrock, applied some glue to the back of it and attached it to the inside of the card.

I ran the small oval through my Xyron Creative Station to make it a sticker and then attached it directly to the larger oval. To complete the card, I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the large oval and coloured image and then popped them both up on the front of the card.

Ella the Elephant!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using this adorable image from KLM Digital Designs new February release called Ella The Elephant. The image comes with 3 different sentiments. Like so many others, I’ve been missing my family and friends a lot due to Covid lockdowns, so I chose the “Miss You” sentiment for my card. Hopefully, times will get better this year and we’ll be able to see our distant families and friends again.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.

I used AC White Cardstock for the base card size of 6″ x 6″ and ScrapBerry’s Tropics paper for the background. I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station because I wanted it to lay flat on the background. I used my Cuttlebug to die cut the grass using Lawn Fawn – Grassy Hillside Borders and green cardstock. Then I edged around it using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint. I applied double-sided tape to the back of the grass and applied it directly to the base, then I positioned the elephant in front and behind the grass.

Grad Gnome!!


My nephew graduated and I couldn’t resist sharing this adorable little Graduation Gnome With Diploma from KLM Digital Designs that I made for him. The image comes with 3 different sentiments, “Congrats Grad!”, which I’ve used on my card and also, “Congratulations” and “Today is your day!”.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.

I used Hammermill paper to create the base shape of the card 8.5″ x 4.25″. I scored the paper at 4.25″. Then I used a mixture of Tim Holtz inks to create the background. Once I was satisfied with the look, I used Hammerill paper, my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Confetti Panel Die and popped this die cut up over the coloured background using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The sentiment was die cut using MFT – Die-namics Pierced Fishtail Flags, inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door and then popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

The sentiment was popped up the same way to complete the card.

Happy Birthday Flower Frame


Today, I’m sharing Floral Window 1 from KLM Digital Designs January Release. The image comes with 3 different sentiments, “You’re so Sweet”, “You’re the Best” and “Happy Birthday”. I really love how the frame comes with this image. It makes it so easy to create cards for multiple occasions and the design makes it so easy to make a quick card for someone special.

To make the card, I printed out the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I used my Brother Scan ‘N Cut to cut around the image. A black marker was used to go around all of the edges of the flower and outer leaf. The image frame was coloured in with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint.

For the base card, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. was folded to the size of 5.5″ x 5.5″. I cut Heartfelt Creations – Winter’s Eve Collection paper to the same size as the base card. I inked around the edges with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was die cut with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and attached with double-sided tape. The main image was popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. A little bit of Stickles – Yellow was added to the centre of the flower and some dots were added to finish off the card.
