Big Hugs!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using this super adorable image from Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Big Hug – D19025. Great big in person hugs or even virtual hugs are always nice to have or to give to someone or something that you love. Have you hugged someone today?

To make this card I created a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. With Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush and Lawn Fawn – Cloudy Stencil, I created the clouds. Then, using a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Bundled Sage, a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush and a mixture of Lawn Fawn – Clippings – Simple Hillside Stencils and Lawn Fawn – Clippings – Slimline Grassy Hillside Stencils, I created the grass. With my Anna Griffin Empress Die-Cutting Mini Machine, Lawn Fawn – Giant Sending Big Hugs was die cut twice using Recollections – Black cardstock. Liquid glue was used to fuse the 2 pieces together. I applied glue to the back of the combined pieces and attached it directly to the base of the card.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it in with Copic markers. Ranger Inkssentials – Glossy Accents was added to the glasses. The coloured image was fussy cut with scissors leaving a slim white border around it. This was then applied directly to the base card using U-Line – double-sided tape.

Sharing a birthday card I made using Art Impressions Never Too Old – 5114  for the main image and sentiment. My friend and I tease each other about getting older. So, I thought this would be a fun card to make for her. LOL! I used another sentiment from this same set on the inside too, which reads, “Thanks for always being older than me”.

To make my card, 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 multiple inks from Tim Holtz listed below, Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes and Lawn Fawn – Confetti Stencils. Using my MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The image was coloured in and fussy cut. Using my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink, I stamped the image onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. It was then embossed using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Spellbinders Die D-Lites – Conversation Bubble Three (S2-137) and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the sentiment. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the backs of the sentiment and coloured image and they were both popped up onto the background to complete the front of the card. I repeated the process of inking and embossing for the inside sentiment to complete the card.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Never Too Old – 5114 (Art Impressions)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Versa Fine – Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, Shaded Lilac, Mustard Seed, Wilted Violet and Evergreen Bough

Just Hoppin By!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Mr. Frog – SLF037  for the image and Just Hoppin’ – FLL030  for the sentiment. There are so many wonderful new stamps for our New Spring Release called “This and That” at High Hopes Rubber Stamps and Mr. Frog couldn’t wait to welcome all of you to go and see!

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″. I cut Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Ombre Brights to be the same size as the base and adhered it with double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, multiple scraps of cardstock, Recollections – Black cardstock and Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Ombre Brights, I cut out all of the pieces for the background using Lawn Fawn – Bayou Backdrop die set. I glued all of the little leaves onto the vines and then using 3 layers around all of the outside edges with U-Line double-sided tape, I popped up the background onto the base. I popped up the pond to the background as well after applying U-Line double-sided tape. I used some spare Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and created a boulder for the frog to sit on which I put into the middle of the pond. This was also popped up. I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers and then I fussy cut around it and the sentiment. Using a black marker, I inked around all of the edges of the frog. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it onto some scrap Recollections – Black cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around it. I applied multiple layers of U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment and applied them both to the card to finish it off.

Sentiment: Just Hoppin’ – FLL030 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sending Big Hugs!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using this super adorable image from Dreamerland Crafts stamps called My True Love – D18018. Great big in person hugs or even virtual hugs are always nice to give to give to someone or something that you love.

Here is a close-up of the featured image.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 8-7/8″ x 3-7/8″ using Aqua cardstock. I die cut Crafts – Foil Designer Paper – 02-3080678 using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and PinkFresh Studio Essentials – Slim Stitched Rectangle Die Set. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough, I inked all around the edges of the card and die cut. Then I inked the front of the die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers, and Speckled Egg using Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was applied last at the bottom of the panel to represent grass. I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the die cut and added it to the base card.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it in with Copic markers. The coloured image was fussy cut out and a black marker was used to go around all of the edges. This was then applied directly to the patterned paper using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To create the “Sending Big Hugs” sentiment, I first took an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of black cardstock and cut it at the 4.25″ mark. Then I ran both pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I find this makes it much simpler than trying to add glue to each piece. Once this was done, using my Cuttlebug, I die cut the black cardstock using Lawn Fawn – “Sending Big Hugs” die 6 times. Then I did it 1 more time using Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Ombre Pastel after I had run it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I cut around the word “Big” to make it stand out.

I peeled off the sticker from the back of each of them and applied each layer on top of each other to create an embossed image. Then I added the sparkly “Big” as a last layer. I applied this to the patterned paper at the top of the card. Lastly, If felt something was missing, so I added some Stickles – Aqua all around the edges of the large rectangle die cut.

Birthday Celebration!!


Today, I’m sharing a miniature birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Meow Meow 01 – D20013 for the main image and for the sentiments Birthday 07 – DCS17058 and Birthday 08 – DCS17059. I always wanted to try this type of miniature card! I just love the way you get the 3-D effect when you open the card.  So much fun. LOL!

Inside the card:

To make this card I used Lawn Fawn – Centre Picture Window Card to create the base card out of Hot Pink cardstock. The same dies were also used to create the centre pieces and banner using Your Next Stamp Designer Paper Pad – Birthday Girl. The same paper was also used to create the background on the card, front panel and side panels using Lawn Fawn – Centre Picture Window Card Add-On dies. Your Next Stamp – Mini Balloon Trio Die Set was used to die cut the floating balloons and then I tied some black thread to the base of the balloons. I cut 3 small pieces of clear plastic about a 1/4″ wide and attached the double-sided tape to the back of the balloon and at the base of the plastic as well to be used later.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and also the sentiments onto the patterned pieces. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it.

I assembled the card using double-sided tape for each of the panels and centre pieces. I attached the balloons by putting 2 behind the presents and 1 from the top centre piece. Lastly, I added a little bit of double-sided tape to the bottom of the coloured image and attached it to the front of the main centre piece. For the sentiment on the front panel, I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber and then popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added 2 balloons and used a black marker to create the tails for the balloons.
