Voila! Today is Your Day!


Today I’m sharing this adorable Chef Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) image and sentiments from KLM Digital Designs new release. He has been very busy preparing your special birthday cake full of layers of joy and happiness for your birthday. Enjoy! Calories don’t count on your special day. LOL!

I printed out the main image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I then proceeded to colour in the image with Copic markers. This was my second time colouring him as the first one shifted on the mat of my Brother Scan and Cut and cut half of his hat off. UGH! Good news is I had already listed all of my colours so it was easy to colour him again. The joys of crafting. LOL!

For the main background, I used a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I used Echo Park – Let’s Party paper to create the background. I cut one piece at 5.5″ x 3″ and the other at 5.5″ x 1.5″ to give me some play room when I layered them onto the base card. I also edged around the background paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Cracked Pistachio.

Once the image was coloured in, I used my Brother Scan and Cut to create a pattern so that I could layer the finished image on top of it. I also used the same cutter to create the thin border around the image. For the sentiments, I fussy cut both of them and then layered them onto some yellow and black cardstock. I edged around the yellow cardstock with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber.

I popped up the image and sentiments with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card and added in a few Kraftin’ Kimmie Krafty Dots.

Happy Birthday Gnome


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Balloon Gnome – SLF016 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Mini Sentiment Set #1 – HLL001 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment from the new release this month. The mini sentiment comes with 3 more sayings as well, which means you can use this little gnome to make a variety of different cards for multiple occasions. I chose to make a birthday card this time.

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card sized at 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then I used Doodlebug Design Inc. – Fairy Tales paper to create my background rectangles. To do this, I used my Cuttlebug and die cuts from My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers to ink around the edges of the frames. I layered the first 2 layers directly onto the base and also glued the 2 smaller rectangles together. Then I popped up the smaller rectangles with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and then coloured it in with Copic markers. Once completed, I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image. Then I popped up the image with the 3M VHB – 2 sided tape as well.

To finish the card off, I added some bling using Kraftin Kimmie – Summer Dots,  Kraftin Kimmie – Festive Dots and CC Designs – Dragon Dreams Enamel Dots.
