Never Grow Old!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing an anniversary card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called We Will Never – D19077. My husband has always been my best friend and we are often told that we are still kids at heart. So, this sentiment and stamp were the perfect combination for us.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I die cut a heart out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. Then I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the image and background of the heart with Copic markers.

For the background, I used Stampin’ Up! – Have a Cuppa paper. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI. I used Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I then coloured the top half with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Worn Lipstick and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. Next, I edged around all of the background pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. I layered the centre background cardstock onto the base first and then the next 2 layers directly on top of it. Lastly, I popped up the image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added a few pop dots from Kraftin’ Kimmie.

Day Wrapped in Happiness


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called You Are A Blessing – D19085 for the main image and  Birthday Sentiments 002 – DS163007. This little girl looks so peaceful sitting on her swing with her sweet companion next to her.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I die cut a square out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Then I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then drew in the tree, grass, clouds and sky.

I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink and my MISTI. I used Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I layered the sentiment onto aqua cardstock and the coloured image onto purple cardstock and then popped up both the image and the sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Wine Birthday Divas!!!


Sharing a birthday card today that I made for my aunt using Wine Divas – SC0677 (AI Art Impressions) for both the images and sentiments. My aunt is into crafts and cardmaking too and sometimes when I stay over at her house, we like to share a bottle of wine together, talk and laugh. That is why when I saw this stamp set, I knew I had to make this special card for her birthday. LOL!

To make this card, I used my MISTI to get a nice clean stamped image using Memento – Tuxedo Black and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next I die-cut out the stamped image using my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214). I cut the background paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe at 5.5″ x 4.25″ and mounted it onto top of a white card base 5.5″ x 4.25″. I then inked around all of the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. Before, popping up the base image onto the background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I used my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder to add in the sentiment. I heat set the embossing powder with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

For the inside of the card, I mounted the background paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe – 6″ x 6″ paper pad onto a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then, I fussy cut around the image and attached it to the card base using 2 sided tape. I embossed the sentiment to finish off the inside.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Wine Divas – SC0677 (AI Art Impressions)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, VersaFIne – Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry

Embossing Powder: Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder

I Detect A Birthday!


Sharing a card that I made for my brother this week! For the main image and sentiment, I used It’s A Mystery (Kraftin Kimmie Stamps). My little brother retired from the OPP last year, so I thought this would be a fun card to make for him for his birthday this year.

To make the background for the card, I die cut multiple rectangles using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) in various brown cardstocks 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 images with Copic markers and then fussy cut around them leaving a thin white border. I stamped the lamp post using My Creative Time – Wishing You Were Here and then used the co-ordinating die cut to cut it out.

I used Sentiment Label Dies (My Creative Time) to die cut the ribbon and then stamped the sentiment using VersaMark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Which I heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Then I used the YNS die cut to trim off the edge so that it matched the rest of the card.

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 rectangles onto the 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: It’s A Mystery  (Kraftin Kimmie Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Walnut Stain

Eek! You’re How Old???


Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made for my sister-in-law whose nickname is “Kitty”. I have a lot of fun trying to come up with new creations with cats for her birthday each year. This year, I decided to use Going Catty – DP1021 (Clearly Whimsy Stamps), for my main image on the front of the card. Shown below is how it looked before I placed the die cut from Peek A Boo Poppers (YNSD219) – (#Your Next Die) over top of it.

To create the die-cut, I first used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the main image and then again to cut out the pop-out die cut using Echo Park Paper Co. – Imagine That. I then added glue all around the outside of the circle and glued the two pieces together as shown below.

I created a card base 5.5″ x 4.25″ and then mounted paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe. I popped up the circle previously cut out with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I used the sentiment from the same Whimsy Stamp Set. I embossed it using VersaMark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I cut it out using Ribbon End Dies – My Creative Time. Lastly, I edged around all of the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. Shown below is the card with the pop-up closed.

This is the front of the card with the pop-up open.

On the inside of the card, I used the image from Birthday Critters – 30-466 (Penny Black) and sentiment from
Whatnot Sentiments Set Twelve – CYNS638 (#Your Next Stamp).

All images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI.

Birthday Wishes!


Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made for my mom using Yummy Cupcake Bunny (CYNS592) (#Your Next Stamp) on the front of the card and  Rosie Rabbit Gift (CYNS542) (#Your Next Stamp) on the inside of the card.

On the inside:

To make the card I stamped the images on to Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black and my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to get a nice clean crisp image. After colouring the images, I fussy cut around them both. I then used My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies to die cut an oval out of Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe paper. I cut the remainder of the paper to be 4″ x 5.25″ and turned it over to the opposite side and mounted it onto a card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry to ink around the edges.

For the sentiments I used Versa Fine Onyx Black and VersaMark ink and then embossed both with Ranger embossing powders listed below.

To complete the card, I mounted the bunny on the front with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop it up as well as the sentiment.

Love Every Little Moment


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Mix and Match Clear Stamps (DC19095) (Dreamerland Crafts)!  Love the images for this stamp. There are so many different scenes that can be created. I chose to do a night scene with the 2 best friends sharing the serenity of the night sky.

To make this card, I first die cut some Bristol paper and then drew in the hills with light pencil and traced around the stamps to get the general idea of placement. I created a masked image of the bear and bunny using Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and Post-It Note for the hills and cut them both out. Next I erased all of the lines so that you could barely see them and stamped the bear and the bunny image directly onto the Bristol Paper. Next, I mounted the mask of the characters and hills that I had cut out previously over top of the stamped images so that they would be protected while I coloured in the sky.

To do the sky I used a mixture of Tim Holtz inks listed below and PrismaColor pencils. Then I blended all of the colours together using Gamsol and a blending paper stump. I repeated the process with the PrismaColor pencils several times.

Once the sky was completed, I removed the stencil for the grass and proceeded to colour it in using the same technique that I had used for the sky.

Lastly, I removed the mask for the bear and bunny and coloured them in. I added in some small trees using a Black Prismacolor pencil.

I popped my finished image, back into my MISTI again and stamped the sentiment using VersaMark. I also stamped in the stars in the sky and embossed everything with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. I also used a brush and tapped some of the white embossing powder all over the sky. Then heated it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Lastly, I stamped and embossed the seagulls using VersaFine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I coloured them in using Black PrismaColor pencil and then added in some highlights on the wings.

I popped up the coloured image and blue cardstock with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
