Let Your Voice Sing!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Let Your Voice Sing – D15205 for the main image and Sentiment – Holiday Sentiments 003 – DS163003. Growing up we always had so much fun gathering with friends and family and singing Christmas carols.

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, I embossed the music design with a Cuttlebug – ProvoCraft – Allegro embossing folder. I cut it down to the size of 5.25″ x 4″ and adhered it directly to the base card.

Utilizing the Cuttlebug again and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock, the die-cut for the image was cut out with Spellbinders – Elegant Ovals. With a MISTI, the main image was stamped onto the die cut. It was coloured in and then a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen was used to colour in the fancy border surrounding the image. The sentiment was stamped with my MISTI and VersaMark ink. Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder was applied to the ink and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I fussy cut around the sentiment. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the sentiment and coloured image and they were both popped up onto the card. To finish the card off, I applied Dress It Up – Glitter Holly buttons with liquid glue from their Holiday Collection.

Holiday Wishes!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Holiday Wishes – D18031 May all of your holiday wishes come true this season for you and your loved ones!

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Stardust Christmas paper was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” paper was cut to 5.5″ x 1.25″ x 5.5″ x .75″. With my hands I tore along the top of both pieces to give the snow some texture. I applied double-sided tape to the larger piece and adhered it directly to the card. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the smaller piece and it was popped up over top of the larger piece.

The base card was placed into my MISTI and the sentiment from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps – The Magic of Christmas was stamped onto it using VersaMark ink. Recollections Detail Embossing Powder – Silver was applied over top of the ink and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I removed this from the MISTI and stamped the main image with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The image was coloured in and then fussy cut. With a black marker, I inked around all of the edges and then added U-Line Double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the card and snow. Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff was placed under the couple’s boots and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to puff it up. Stickles – Diamond was then added over top of the fluffy snow to create more sparkle. Finally, to complete the card, Stickles – Crystal was applied to the centre of the stars in the sky.

Meowy Christmas!


It’s the last day of the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop and today I’m sharing a Christmas card I made using Gerda Steiner Designs –  Deck The Halls – GSD438. I thought this image was adorable! Have fun hopping everyone!

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background to be the same size using Wild Rose Studio – Winter Bauble Paper and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass and a finger dauber, I inked around all of the edges of the card. With my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Dies – Ornaments, I die cut a large ornament from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and the ribbon and topper from a scrap piece of gold cardstock.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and with Versafine – Majestic Blue, I stamped the sentiment onto the base card. I embossed the sentiment with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat set it with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and with a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen designs were added to the ornaments and light bulbs. I tried to create the ornament as close to the paper as I could. Once this was completed, using liquid glue, I attached the top piece and the bow to the ornament. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of ornament die cut and it was popped up onto the background. With a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen, I added in some string for the bauble.

Paw-sitively Good!


It’s day 5 of the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop and today I’m sharing a Christmas card I made using Your Next Stamp –  Meowy Christmas – CYNS681. Having so much fun with this amazing hop and look forward to it every year.

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background to be the same size using My Favourite Things – Pawsome Prints paper and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, Creative Expressions – Festive Collection – Bold Snowflake Frame dies and Recollections – Blue Hues Shimmer Cardstock, I cut out the large snowflake and frame. Using some scrap dark blue paper, I die cut the large outline. I tore along the top of a small piece of Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and then die cut it with the larger cirlce die from the same die set. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Faded Jeans and a finger dauber, the edges were inked all around the base card. With liquid glue, I attached the large snowflake to the background border. I then attached the snow piece that I had cut previously with liquid glue as well. Then, using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, I coloured in some snow in the sky.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. I added some U-Line double-sided tape to the image and popped it up into centre of the circle. The shadow was added using B52. The sentiments were both stamped onto the dark blue paper with VersaMark ink and then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. I cut out the larger sentiment with my cutter and the smaller one using my Cuttlebug and Gina K Designs – Sentiment Strips. I attached U-line double sided tape the sentiments and coloured image frame and popped up everything onto the card base.

U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the backs of three Creative Impressions – Brads – Snowflake – Winter with a double layer. They were all popped up onto the card and then YNS Gumdrops – Firefly Magic Sparkly Gumdrops were applied to the centres to finish the card off.

Making Beautiful Music!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Making Beautiful Music – D152002. This little angel is so sweet and is spreading Christmas cheer to everyone early this year.

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 5.5″ using AC Cardstock – White. AC – Christmas Cardstock – Green was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. The frame was created using Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss die-cutting machine, Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Ornate Holly Framed Noel die and Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” paper. I applied liquid glue to the back of this piece and then adhered it to the card.

With my Cuttlebug, I die cut a 3.5″ x 3.5″ square using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The main image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I cleaned off the angel and then stamped in place again using VersaMark ink for the snowflakes. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied to the image and then heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I coloured in the image and then added some sparkles onto the dress using a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Sparkle was added to wings with Clear – Wink of Stella. To make the snowflakes a little brighter and to add some smaller snowflakes in the sky, I used a white Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I created a small mixture of FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint, DecoArt Glamour Dust, Delta Ceramcoat – White onto an acrylic block and with a paint brush added in the snowy background along the bottom of the square. Using a small Stylus, I added in a few more sparkly snowflakes and sprinkled DecoArt Glamour Dust over them while they were still wet. This was then put aside to dry.

Using my Cuttlebug, I die cut 6 petals and 7 leaves out of scraps of paper using Spellbinders – Holiday Flower & Greenery dies. Liquid glue was used to attach the petals together and the I added U-Line double-sided tape and some liquid glue to the bottoms of them to attach them to the card. I trimmed the leaves and with a small amount of liquid glue applied to the tips of the leaves, I adhered them to the card under the flowers. PinkFresh Studio – Essentials Jewel Mix yellow jewels were glued to the centre of each flower. Using my Cuttlebug once again, I die cut 2 sentiments using Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Ornate Holly Framed Noel die with some scrap gold paper. The oval was die cut using Creative Expressions – Frames and Tags – Charlotte dies and a scrap piece of AC – Christmas Cardstock – Burgundy. I glued the 2 sentiments on top of each other to give it some dimension and then attached the sentiment to the oval. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the finished image and it was popped up onto the centre of the card. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the oval and it was popped up onto the top of the card to finish it off.

Dance With Me!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Just Dance With Me – DCS17037. Sometimes just dancing with our partners or friends can bring such joy to us. No matter where you may be, just hear the music and dance no like no one is watching!

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. The sky was created using Lawn Fawn Cuts – Cloudy Stencil, a  blender brush and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Salty Ocean and Broken China. To create the grass, I first cut 2 pieces of DCWV – Pocket Blossom designer paper to the sizes of 5.5″ x 2.5″ and 5.5″ x 1-5/8″.  Lawn Fawn – Grassy Hillside Borders die cuts and my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Cutting Machine were used to die cut the 2 pieces. Using a blender brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness, I inked over top of the blades of grass and then around the other 3 edges.

The main image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and then fussy cut around it leaving a slim white border. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the image. I then placed the image onto the card before removing the tape backing to see where to place the sentiment. Using my MISTI again and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink, I applied the sentiment onto the base card. Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder was then applied to it and it was heat embossed with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

The final pieces of the card were now ready to assemble. I peeled off the tape backings from the large die-cut and added some liquid glue to allow me to move it into the correct position over top of the grass I had placed down earlier onto the base card. After popping up the top grass cut, I then repeated the same process and popped up the image in between the blades of grass. Finally, I added in some butterflies from the same stamp set using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet. I had made them lighter by first stamping off of the page and then onto the card.

A Million Wishes


Sharing a birthday card I made today for my husband using Whimsy Stamps –  A Million Dollars – DDB0071 and A Million Wishes – CWSD402. He works in the financial industry, so I thought this combination was perfect for him when I saw it! LOL!

To make this card, I started with stamping the A Million Dollars – DDB0071 using my large MISTI, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Wicked Black Ink and lime green cardstock. The images were stamped using my smaller MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the images with Copic markers and then fussy cut around them. Using my small MISTI again, Versamark ink, Recollections – Black cardstock and sentiment from A Million Wishes – CWSD402 – Whimsy Stamps, I stamped the sentiment. This was then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and then heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The sentiment was die cut using Poppystamps – Christmas Quotes dies and Anna Griffin Empress Mini die-cutting Machine. The “$” sign was stamped using the same stamp set with Versamark Ink and Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder onto the large background and then heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

The card was now ready to assemble. I created the base card using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 8.25″ x 3.5″. I attached the large money piece that I had stamped earlier using double-sided tape to the base. U-Line double sided tape was added to the back of the sentiment piece and main images. Everything was then popped them up onto the background to complete the card.

AHH – 60!!


Sharing a birthday card I made for a friend using Art ImpressionsAHH Set – A4671 and Rock On Laugh Lines – 5422. I was late getting this birthday card out to my friend as usual and this face says it all. LOL!

To make the card, I began with the base of 8.5″ x 7″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock, scored and folded to the size of 8.5″ x 3.5″. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. Once the images were coloured, I fussy cut around them both. For the blouse, I stamped the image again onto DCWV – Pocket Blossom paper and paper-pierced it onto the image after I had run it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. For the image on the front page, a black marker was used to outline all of the edges.

For the front of the card, I die cut 3 balloons using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine, Concord & 9th – Pop-Up Par-Tay dies and Pergamano Parchment Paper – Rainbow Pastel and 1 balloon out of a spare piece of patterned paper to use for the inside of my card. The numbers were cut from Recollections – Black cardstock using my cutting machine and Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts – Henry’s 123s. To create the background, I used multiple Tim Holtz Distress inks listed below, multiple brushes and Lawn Fawn – Confetti Stencils to create the background on the base card front.  The sentiment was stamped with a MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. Then, I fussy cut around it.

The front of the card was now ready to assemble. I ran each of the numbers through my Xyron Create a Sticker and the balloons through my Xyron Creative Station. The numbers were then placed onto the balloons. I attached the first 2 balloons to the card and then drew in the strings with a black marker. I then added the last balloon and drew another string. A white pencil was used to create a bit of glow along the left side of the balloons. After attaching U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the sentiment and the image, I popped them up onto the front of the card.

Inside of the card: 

For the inside of the card, I used Rock On Laugh Lines – 5422 – Art Impressions, Dance It Out Set – 5278 – Art Impressions, Be Happy Laugh Lines – 5279 – Art Impressions for the sentiments. I cut out 3 sentiment bubbles using Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine, Spellbinders – Die D-Lites Conversation Bubble 3 Etched Dies out of white cardstock. I stamped each of sentiments using a MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. I ran each of the sentiment bubbles and my image through my Xyron Creative Station.

The inside of the card was now ready to assemble. I placed the 1 bubble sentiment at the top of the card and then using my image as a guide for placement, I attached the patterned balloon to the card first. The image was attached on top of it and then I added the bottom bubble sentiment. Lastly, I placed the final bubble sentiment to the card in between the other top 2 bubble sentiments to complete the card.

Thankfully, she loved her card and I hope you do too!

Welcome The New Couple!!


Today, I’m sharing a Wedding card that I made for my cousin who recently got married using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Welcome The New Couple – D18017 We wish them a very long and happy marriage as they begin their new journey together as one.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Oval. The image was then stamped onto this die cut using my MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and Welcome The New Couple – D18017 – Dreamerland Crafts stamp. I coloured in the image using copic markers and created the background. For the sentiment, I first ran all of the pieces of cardstock through my Xyron Create a Sticker. Then, using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and dies from PaperCrafter Today – 15 Die Cut Sentiment Set, I die cut the “Congratulations” 2 times from plain white cardstock and 1 time from Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock. I then pieced them all together to give an embossing effect. I applied U-Line double-side tape to the back of the coloured image and popped it up on top of the base card. Lastly, I attached the sentiment to complete the card.

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.

Mermaid and Friends!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Mermaids & Friends Fran’s Clear Stamps & Cutting Dies Stampendous Set – CSD18.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut a piece of coral cardstock to the size of 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. I created my own background paper using Crayola chalk, water and American Crafts Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Foundations Paper cut to the size of 5.25″ x 4″. Once the paper was dry, I embossed the whole background with Emboss It – Clear ink and then added Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I heat embossed this with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I did this same technique with the paper that I used to cut out coral with my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Elizabeth Craft Designs – Seaweed dies. For the main background, I added some sand to the bottom using Seth Apter – Baked Texture – Dirty Sand and my Ranger HEAT IT Craft Tool. This process takes a little longer, but it allows you to just sprinkle the embossing powder on top and then heat from the bottom first and then on top. I think this gave it a more natural look. Using U-Line double-sided tape, I added the chalk embossed background to the base card.

The images were stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the images using copic markers. For the pearl, I coloured it in using Cosmic Shimmer Opal Blaze Touch Tip – Turquoise Peach and then embossed it with Ranger – Holographic Embossing Powder and heat set it with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Clear – Wink of Stella was added over top of the bikini top and the fin to make them glitter. Unfortunately, you can’t see that in this photo. Once the images were coloured, I die cut the turtle and the mermaid using the dies that came with the stamp using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine.

My card was now ready to assemble. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the 2 images and all of the buttons. I removed the backs from the buttons earlier. I popped each of the characters and added a second layer of tape to the mermaid and then popped it up on the card as well. To finish it off, I added in some bubbles using Your Next Stamp Gumdrops – Crystal Clear And Sparkle Gumdrops. The crown was coloured in with Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Gold.

Smooth Sailing Ahead!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Wishing you a smooth sailing ahead – DCS1703. This card could be used to wish someone smooth sailing for cruising, retirement or for a new job position or even if you knew someone who just bought a new boat for fun! The stamp set also comes with 2 more sentiments, “on a Journey to find Happiness” and “Taking a break from my daily routine”.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Black cardstock was die cut to the size of 4.75″ x 3.5″ using Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. Using the same machine and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the size of 4.5″ x 3.75″. The main image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the images again onto Post-It Note paper to create a mask and fussy cut around them. After stamping the main image, I placed the masking of the little girl in the boat on top of the inked image as shown below.

I stamped the mountains starting from the left side, while still using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The mountain mask was applied over top of them and I stamped another set of mountains so that they looked like they were behind the first set of mountains. I continued to do this going across the image to create a mountain range. Then, I removed all of the masks and coloured in the image using copic markers.  Copic – Opaque White was used to create the crests of the waves and Stampin’ Up – Whisper White Ink and a small #2 round brush were used to create the clouds in the sky. Versamark, my MISTI and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail were used to add in the birds from the same stamp set. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat emboss the powder. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the black rectangle.

Using my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder, I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat emboss this as well. Using Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, I die cut the sentiment with a 1.25″ circle. With a 1.5″ circle punch, I die cut Recollections – Black cardstock. I added U-Line double-side tape to the back of the sentiment and popped it up onto the larger black circle. I added a double layer of the U-Line double-side tape to the right of the black rectangle on each side and popped up the larger black circle to the bottom right of the card. YNS Gumdrops – Ice Ice Baby Sparkly Gumdrops were added to the top left corner of the card to finish it off.

A Flower For You Mom!!


Today, I’m sharing a Mother’s Day card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Say Love With Flowers – D162017It’s that time of year when we all get to celebrate our Mother’s special day. A bond between a child and their mother is something so special and rare! Happy Mother’s Day to all of you special ladies out there and especially to my mom whom we all love dearly!

To make this card I used a base of 6″ x 6″ using AC White Cardstock cardstock. Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock was cut to the same size as the base and adhered with double-sided tape. P13 – Hello Spring was cut to 5.75″ x 5.75″ and the edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Saltwater Taffy. This was popped up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape.

The main image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image using copic markers and created the background. Once the background was completed, I dipped a Q-tip into some Rubbing Alcohol ink and dotted it all over the background. Then using a Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear, I went around the oval where the pattern was and applied Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder. then heated it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the card. For the sentiment, I used the stamps from Die Cutting Essentials Magazine – Issue 75 – Geo Floral Wreath Dies & Stamps.

Ex-Cuse Me!!


Sharing a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law this year using C.C. DesignsRoberto’s Rascals – Grouchy Pets and Roberto’s Rascals – Cutie Cats. Her name is Kitty and I always try to find fun images with cats to make her card. LOL!

To make the card, I began with the base of 3.5″ x 8.5″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. I also die cut the Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock with the Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Marquee Die and my Cuttlebug. Using multiple Picket Fence – Blending Brushes and Tim Holtz Distress Inks listed below, I created my own background. Using the window pieces from the die cut, I traced around them onto Doodlebug – hey cupcake (6″x6″) paper and fussy cut around them. I applied some glue along the edges and attached them to the back of the panel.  Then I applied double-sided tape to the backing and attached this to the base.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. Once everything was coloured, I fussy cut around each of them. The sentiments were stamped onto Recollections – Black cardstock with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Using my cutter, I cut around each of the sentiments. I added double-sided tape to the back of the images and sentiments and popped them all up onto the base card. Finally, I added some Kraftin’ Kimmie Pop Dots.

Inside of the card: 

For the inside of the card, I used my large MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the sentiments from Art Impressions Glamour Pop-Ups – 5355 and Purrrfect Sentiments – HoneyBee Stamps. I ran the little kitty from the Roberto’s Rascals – Cutie Cats – C.C. Designs set that I had coloured earlier through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it directly to the card to finish everything off.

Thankfully, she loved her card and I hope you do too!

Rain or Shine!


Sharing a card I made today using Penny Black Stamps – Rain or Shine. My husband and I always celebrate the first day that we started going out together and also our wedding anniversary each year. Yesterday, marked 36 wonderful years together. We had bears on the top of our wedding cake, so I thought it would be great to make him a card with bears to celebrate our special day.

To make my card, I started out with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock to create a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug, I die cut a small rectangle into the front of the card. For the raindrops, I first applied some Post-It tape down the centre of the card and then applied Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass with a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. I placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Rainy Day Stencil over top of this blue section and this time I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. I removed the stencil and the Post-it Note tape and covered the centre where the blue colour ended. Using a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Squeezed Lemonade, I applied yellow to the entire right side of the card. Lastly, I placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Starburst Stencil over top and using the same brush, I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mustard Seed. I die cut the word “Happy” using My Creative Time – Happy Everything Stamp Set and Recollections – Black cardstock. Lastly, using a sentiment from the same stamp set, I stamped and heat embossed the word “Anniversary” using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Here is the inside of the card.

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I die cut it using Lawn Fawn – Zig Zag Square Stackables and coloured in the image with Copic markers. Using my MISTI again, I heat embossed the sentiment onto Recollections – Black cardstock using VersaMark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Gina K. Designs – Master Layouts – #9 was used to die cut the sentiment. I applied glue to the back of the image and sentiment and attached them both to the inside of the card.

Flying By!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Off To A Flying Start – D16003. We have had a lot of pilots in our family in the past and still do. I’ve had the precious opportunity of flying in a small 2 seater plane that my dad and uncle had built years ago and also being allowed into the cockpit of an Air Canada plane on our honeymoon flight in both directions over 30 years ago when it was still possible to this. On the flight home there was an electrical storm. This was so awesome to see. These are experiences that I will never forget as I loved every moment.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card was cut to the same size as the base and Dreamerland image Off To A Flying Start – D16003 was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The image was stamped a second time onto some plain paper and then fussy cut to create a mask. I coloured in the image using Copic markers. The mask created earlier was then put over top of the coloured image and I applied some Post-It tape along the bottom to hold it into place. Using some stencils that I had previously created using Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die, multiple blue Tim Holtz Distress inks listed below and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush, I created the cloudy background. Then, I applied the grass using Copic markers. The coloured image was then put back into my MISTI and using Versa Fine – Onyx Black to stamp the sentiment Sky’s The Limit by Kraftin’ Kimmie. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied and heated with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I applied double-side tape and attached it to the base card to finish it off.

Every Little Moment!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called When You Love Someone – D20005 and Mix and Match Collection – Railing and Lampost – M18309 for the main images and Mix and Match – DCS19095 for the sentiment. Loved combining these stamps as they could be used for Valentine’s Day, Anniversary or just a note to let your special someone know how much you love them.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the Dreamerland image When You Love Someone – D20005 and then stamped it again onto Post-It Note paper. I cut around the image on the Post-It Note paper and applied it over top of my stamped image. Once this was in place, I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the Dreamerland image Mix and Match Collection – Railing and Lampost – M18309. The railings were stamped on both sides of the image and then again using my MISTI, I stamped the lamp posts multiple times. I also used Copic – W9 to make the bottom halves a little darker as well. This was done on both sides of the main image. I had used some Post-It note paper to put on both ends so that the fence wouldn’t go past the small border around the card when I was stamping. I coloured in the image with Copic Markers. Once the image and background were coloured in, I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink, my MISTI and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Lastly, some stars were added to the sky using Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen.  I adhered the completed image to some Recollections – Black cardstock using double-sided tape. To finish off the card, I applied U-Line double-sided tape and popped the completed image and matting onto the base card.

Hello Fabulous!!


Sharing a birthday card I made for a friend using Art ImpressionsAHH Set – A4671 and Glamour Pop-Ups – 5355. I was late getting this birthday card out to my friend as usual and this face says it all. LOL!

To make the card, I began with the base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. Once everything was coloured, the sentiments were stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. I added double-sided tape to the back of the image and attached it directly to the base card.

Inside of the card: 

For the inside of the card, I used Art Impressions Glamour Pop-Ups – 5355. I stamped and coloured the image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The image was coloured with Copic markers and then die cut using my Cuttelbug and the dies that came with the stamp. Love this image because if you are going to get older, you might as well be fabulous and enjoy it!

The image pops out. Here are a couple of different views. Art Impressions also has an amazing video to show you how the mechanism works.

   

I decorated the inside with Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Ombre Pastel cardstock and also Bubbly Girls – Party – Yvonne Creations cardstock. Then, I added the pop-up as per the instructions from Art Impression stamps.

Christmas Caroling!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19090 and Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19092. These little woodland creatures are enjoying the miracle of Christmas with some caroling.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die-cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and stamped the images using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the images with Copic markers and added some decorations onto the tree using Nuvo Crystal Drops – Dandelion Yellow, Red Berry and Caribbean Ocean. To add some glitter to the snow, I applied Stickles – Diamond and for the snow in the sky, I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. The sentiment and music symbols were added using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Your Next Die – Stitched Frame Snowfall Hill was used to die cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold. Using glue, I adhered the background frame and coloured image to the base.

Today, I’m featuring this adorable image from Sweet Sentiment called Cake is Life. Thank you Sweet Sentiment for sponsoring us and having such amazing fun designs to choose from. I am a huge fan of your stamps.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. For the background, I cut some yellow cardstock to be the same size as the base card and adhered it with double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die cut Echo Park Paper Co. – Happy Birthday Boy paper and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire. This was adhered directly to the yellow background using double-sided tape.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and fussy cut around it. I ran the coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station and applied it to some matching Echo Park Paper Co. – Happy Birthday Boy cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around it. This time, I popped the image onto the background using U-Line double-sided tape.

I stamped out the sentiment onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper, fussy cut around it and popped it up onto the base of the card using U-Line double-sided tape.
