Miss You!!


Today, I’m sharing a slim-line card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Meow Meow 04 – D20016 for the main image and for the sentiment Just A Note To Say – DCS17038Dreamerland Crafts. Love this new set and I as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a card to show how a lot of us are feeling right now during these Covid times missing family and friends.

To make this card I used a base card of 7″ x 8.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored it at 3.25″.  Next, using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Marquee Die, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.  Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped all of the images onto the shaped die cuts and coloured them in with Copic markers.

The frame die cut was coloured using Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. The sentiments were stamped and embossed onto black cardstock using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat set using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. My cutter was used to cut the stamped sentiments into small strips. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of each of the sentiments.

To assemble the card, I first turned the die cuts upside down and used a little bit of Scotch Tape on the back side to keep the inserts in place. Then, I applied double-sided tape across the entire back and attached it directly to the card base. I attached each of the sentiments and finished off the card with Crafts – Rhinestone Stickers.

Love Lifts Me Up!!


Today, I’m sharing an inspirational slider card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Your Love Lifts Me Up – D20001. Love this stamp and image for lifting someone’s spirit up.

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5 x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background to be the same size using Asuka Studio – Sparkly Sky. I really love this paper. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured them in with Copic markers. Then, I fussy cut around it leaving a small white border.

I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. The little cloud was die cut with my Cuttlebug and Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD002 – Sky. Then I used a Picket Fence – Blending Brush that still had some blue ink on it from my last project to give it some colour. I cut a small strip just over a .5″ wide and about 4″ long to be a pull tab. I die cut a circle out of the top background paper with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles and then glued the piece that I cut onto the pull tab. Using 2 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I created the path on the back of the background and added some tape where I wanted the tab to stop. I glued 2 small magnets to the back of the cloud and also to the pull tab. (4 in total). Then I used an embossing pillow against the taped sides and over the magnets so that it would glide easier. I added some more double-sided tape to the remainder of the back of the background and then attached it to the card.

Fishing Gnomes!!


Sharing a birthday card that I made recently for my dad using Stampendous – Gnome Fishing (SSC1341). My dad lives to fish and loves to go whenever possible. Lucky for him, the fisheries usually stock the lake where his camp is. It’s in a secluded spot, so the fish have time to mature and grow.

Using Memento – Tuxedo Black and my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool, I stamped all of the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The images were coloured in with Copic markers.

Once the images were completed, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die Layers were used to die cut the papers. Double-sided tape was used to add the 2 layers to the base of the card.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Stampendous – Gnome Fishing (SSC1341)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black

Paper: Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Recollections – Black, The Paper Studio – Primary Simply Solids (4.25″ x 5.5″)

Purr-fect Day!!


Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Meow Meow 03 – D20015. This little kitten is having an amazing day, getting up early, playing, relaxing and then saying her prayers for the next day to be the same all over again. If we could all live the life of a spoiled kitten, life would be amazing! LOL!

To make this card I used a base card of 6.5″ x 8.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored it at 3.25″.  Next, using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Pillows Die, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and Recollections – Petite Floral – Double Sided paper.  Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped all of the images onto the various shaes and coloured them in with Copic markers. I created the sentiment using a ruler and Pigma Micron 03 black marker.

To assemble the card, I applied glue to the back of the patterned paper and attached it directly to the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry was used to ink around all of the outside and inside edges of the die cut. For all of the images and sentiment, I first ran them through my Xyron Creative Station to turn them into stickers. Also, this would give me full coverage to lay them flat. I inserted each of them into their respective places of the die cut.

Dam Good Birthday!


Sharing a card I made for my younger brother’s birthday. He sometimes likes to use “choice” words, so I couldn’t resist  these little characters and sentiment from Whimsy Stamps called Beaver Birthday Clear Stamps. LOL! The little tree stump and stacked logs are from Your Next Stamp – Autumn Animals (CYNS605) and the larger log is from Craftin Desert Diva’s – Build A Scene (Retired).

To make this card, I first stamped all of the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black and my MISTI.  My Brother Scan and Cut was used to cut around all of the images, which were then coloured with copic markers. The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

The base card was created using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock folded to the size of 8-1/4″ x 3-1/4″. To create the clouds in the background, I used the same paper cut to the same size as the base and using a template that I had previously created using Whimsy Stamps – Grass and Cloud Edger Die Set and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks – Broken China and Blueprint Sketch. For the slim-line die cut, I used Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Wave Dies and Craftsmart Hot Buy – Christmas Embossed paper. Then I inked around the entire die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tea Dye to make it pop more. The tree along the left side and the long log along the bottom were drawn free hand and then coloured in with Copic markers.

To assemble the card, I first attached the cloudy background to the base of the card using double-sided tape. Next, I attached the slim-line die cut using some glue. The large tree, long log and small log pile were all attached using glue. The remainder of the images and sentiment were all attached using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added some twine to the balloons and beaver to finish it off.

Just a Note To Say!!


Today, I’m sharing an inspirational card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Farm 01 – D20017 and Just A Note To Say – DCS17038 for the main images and Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19093 for the sentiment.

Above is a close-up of the card. Below is the card opened.

To make this card I used a base card of 11″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored it at 2.75″ and 5.5″ to create an easel card. I stamped the fence, horses, pig and girl onto Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and fussy cut around them. Then I placed them onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″ for placement.

I removed the fence and using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the girl. I placed the girl mask over top of the stamped girl image and then stamped the fence, chicks, pig and farm house and fields. I stamped a horse and then placed the horse mask over it and stamped a second horse. Next, I removed the masks from the scene. I coloured all of the images and background in with Copic markers. I added double sided tape to the bottom portion of the easel card and attached the coloured image.

My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies were used create the base background and Gina Marie Designs – Petite Looped Lace Rectangle dies were used to create the base for the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink. I added Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Peeled Paint ink was used to ink around the edges of both die cuts.

To complete the card, the large rectangle was added directly to the card using double-sided tape and 2 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape were added to the back of the sentiment die cut and attached to the base card background.

When You Believe!


Today, I’m sharing an inspirational card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called When You Believe – D20007. I’ve been told that to become a ballet dancer it takes a lot of hard work and practice. This can also be said for many other professions as well. The overwhelming feeling of success and joy when one achieves their goals is always worth the hard work.

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I printed out the background using my HP Printer and pattern from Nana Vics Digitals – Ballerina #1 Digital Paper. I cut it the same size as the base card and used double-sided tape to attached it on top. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry was used to ink around all of the edges.

I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the image. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Then, I cleaned off the stamp and stamped the sentiment again, this time using VersMark ink. I added Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I fussy cut around the sentiment and used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry ink to ink around the edges. The image was then centred over the fancy rectangle I die cut using DIY Scrapbooking Artist – Nested Stitched Scallop Rectangle Dies using glue.

To assemble the card, I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the backs of the large triangle and sentiment. These were both attached directly to the patterned background. Lastly, to complete the card, I used some Craftin’ Desert Divas – Sherbet Sequins for embellishments.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment:  When You  Believe – D20007 (Dreamerland Crafts)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry, VersaMark, HP Printer – Colour

When You Love Someone!


Today, I’m sharing a Valentine’s card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called When You Love Someone – D20005. I just love this adorable couple. This image could also be used for an Anniversary card too!

To make this card I used a base card of 6″ x 6″ using AC White cardstock. I added the base background using the paper from Stampin’ Up! – Have a Cuppa with double-sided tape. Then, I die-cut 4 hearts using my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Worn Lipstick and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough were used to colour around the edges of the card and also all of the hearts.

I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image. 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 onto the smallest heart.

To assemble the card, the largest heart was attached directly to the base background using glue. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the backs of the remaining hearts and coloured image and then layered them on top of each other. To complete the card, I added in some hearts from Jot – Jewel Stickers.

Happiness


Hi Everyone! It’s the new year and it’s never too early to start making your Christmas cards. Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card from Dreamerland Crafts new Christmas release called Happiness Is Time Spent With A Good Friend – D20009.

To create this card, I first stamped my images using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.  The images were coloured in with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut around them and went around the edges with a black marker and set them aside.

Next, I worked on the background. I cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to the size of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I created the sky using the Tim Holtz inks listed below and then added in some snow using Stamperi – Glamour Paste – Sparkling White and sprinkling on some Martha Stewart Crafts – Crystal Fine Glitter while it was still wet. I then set this aside to dry. Once the paste was dry, I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink. The sentiment was embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

The bench was die cut using Joy Crafts – Floral Flourishes – 6002/0191, my Cutttlebug and Tim Holtz – Idea-ology – Christmas paper. Shadows were added in using T5 Copic Marker. I created a base card using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to the size of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I added double-sided tape to the coloured background and adhered it directly to the base. Using double-sided tape, I added the bench to the background. I popped up the images on the bench using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The snow and stars were added in using a combination of Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Sequins was added from some mixed sparkles I had.

To finish off the card, I added in some Cosmic Shimmer – Fluffy Puff around the bottom of each of the legs of the bench and also onto the trim of the girl’s cape, kitten’s cape and pompom. Lastly, I added some Stickles – Diamond onto the snow and the girl’s cape for added texture.

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the main image with Copic Markers. Then I fussy cut around it. The sentiment was die cut using Whimsy Stamps – Quick Strips Die Set – WSD330.

To create the base I began with AC Cardstock – Christmas (6″ x 6″). Then I die cut K&Company – Kelly Panacci – KP Valentine – 30-599338 paper using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. For the smaller heart, I used K&Company – Kelly Panacci – KP Valentine – 30-599345 paper and Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted dies. I also used the same dies to cut the larger heart using Recollections – Christmas Noel paper. I inked around all of the cut images with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony and also Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door.

To assemble the card, the large square was attached directly to the base using double side tape. All of the remaining layers were popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Congrats Grad!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Graduation Card featuring Grad Boy – R114 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Lg. Fancy Congrats – J006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. My nephew graduated a while ago, but we just found out about it. So this is a belated graduation card. LOL! You know what they say, better late than never!!

 

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cut at 5.25″ x 4″ using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Then I used just the hat and stamped it at different angles to create my background. The images were coloured in with Copic Markers. I decided to pop one hat up in the air. I stamped it separately, fussy cut the image and then coloured it in and popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To finish off the card, I used double-sided tape and attached the coloured image onto 5.5″ x 4.25″ cardstock from The Paper Studio – Christmas Box of Cards.

Grad Nurse!!


My niece graduated last year to become a Registered Nurse. We are so proud of her. She has joined several of my cousins in this profession who are also Nurses and Nurse Practitioners. I made her this card to congratulate her using Cute Nurses from The Paper Shelter and Proud Nurse Set – 4899 (Art Impressions)

I stamped the image of the nurse on the right and inside of the card onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. For the nurse on the left, I printed the image out on my printer using High Quality Grayscale.  I coloured in the images with Copic markers and then fussy cut around them. I wanted the images on the front of the card to pop, so I ran them through my Xyron Creative Station and attached them to black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around them again. I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card using Versa Fine – Onyx Black. This was embossed using Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The sentiment on the front was printed on my printer, using digital stamp from Graduation Gnome With Diploma (KLM Digital Designs). Then it was die cut using Die-Namics MFT-489 PCD Fishtail Figs STX.

For the inside of the card, I couldn’t resist using this fun image from Proud Nurse Set – 4899 (Art Impressions), because I know especially today, nurses are working really long hours. My niece said the sentiment and was so true when she received her card. LOL! We have to give all of the front-line workers credit for all of the hard work they are doing during these Covid times.

I used Hammermill paper to create the base shape of the card 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the background paper from Polkadoodles – Winnie Celebrations 1 – Top Banana Kit to the same size and inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers. For the sentiment on the front, I inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch. I popped up images and sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. On the inside of the card, I ran the coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station and attached it.

Babies Are Sweet Beginnings!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Baby Card featuring Sweet Beginnings – S169 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). I love this adorable stamp and I also have a few nieces that are pregnant right now. We are all looking forward to seeing pictures of the new little one’s when they are born. Once Covid19 is over, hopefully, we will be able to travel again and see them in person.

To create the card this week, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I fussy cut around the image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers.

I created a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper, folded to 5.5″ x 4.25″. For the background paper, I cut a piece the same size as the base from Echo Park – Hello Baby – It’s a Girl. I attached this directly to the base with double-sided tape and then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spun Sugar. I popped up the coloured image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Lastly, I added some little embellishments from Forever In Time – Painted Wood Buttons – Patchwork Elephants to finish off the card.

Wish You A Merry Christmas


Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card from Dreamerland Crafts new Christmas release called We Wish You A Merry Christmas – D20012. This card features a little kitten helping his friend celebrate the joy of Christmas giving.

To create this card, I first die-cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Creative Expressions – Festive Frames – Snowball. I separated the 2 pieces of the die-cut and using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black, I stamped the image onto the paper and  coloured it in with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder. Once this was done, I added all of the snowflakes in the sky using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and also Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. For the snow on the ground, I used a mixture of Nuvo Glitter Accents – Fresh Snowfall and Stickles – Crystal. This was then set aside for a few hours to dry.

For the frame, I used Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish – Summer Sky. It was my first time using this polish and I just love how it turned out. Once the snow on the image was dry, I flipped the 2 die-cuts over and attached them back together using some clear tape on the back.

The card was now ready to assemble. For the card base I used The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 4.25″ x 5.5″. I added some double-sided tape and some glue to the backing of the finished frame and image and attached it directly to the card base.

Feeling Up To Par!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Get Well Card featuring Golfer Glen – T084 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) paired with the sentiment Up To Par – G257 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). It’s always hard to find Get Well Cards for men, and I thought the pairing of these 2 stamps went so well together.

To create the card this week, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. Then, I stamped the image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The image was then coloured in with Copic Markers. I stamped the image again onto Post-It Note paper and used it as a mask. Then, I applied the clouds using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and cloud stencils I made from Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie and Whimsy Stamps – Grass and Cloud Edger Die Set. Then I used some washi tape to mask the main image border and inked around it using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean.

The card was now ready to assemble, I attached the coloured image to a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper, folded to 5.5″ x 4.25″.

Nutcracker – Seasons Greetings!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring Nutcracker – M104 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) paired with the sentiment Seasons Greetings – F300A (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). It’s always fun to use Nutcrackers at Christmas time, that is if your parents let you play with them? LOL! Do you use your nutcrackers if you have one or are they strictly for decoration?

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Then I die cut the image using Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Ovals and my Cuttlebug. The image was then coloured in with Copic Markers.

I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark Ink and then embossed it with Ranger – Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder. This was then heated using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.  I used the same die cuts to cut the remaining ovals. I used PhotoPlay – Christmas Memories for the main background paper and cut it to 6″ x 6″. I edged around the main background, background patterned oval and sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn. To create the ribbon, I used some scrap red cardstock, Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629 – Gold and white cardstock. For the Sparkling stickers, I first attached the paper to some white cardstock to give it more stability. Once the pieces for the ribbons were created, I ran all of them through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make it easier to adhere the layers to each other.

The card was now ready to assemble, I attached the main background to a card base of 6″ x 6″. I layered all of the rectangles to create my ribbon and also added the sentiment to this ribbon as well. I then placed this directly onto the base card. The ovals were all popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Nutcracker – M104 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sending You Tidings


Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card by Dreamerland Crafts using their stamp set called Sending You Tidings – D19072. Growing up in the North, we used to get a lot of snow. I always love looking out the window and seeing the snow fall and how beautiful it looks on the houses and trees. Driving in it, not so much, but everything else about winter, I love. LOL!

To make this card, I cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the size of 4.75″ x 3.5″ using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers Dies. Then using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black, I stamped the image first onto the paper and then again on to Post-It Note to create a mask. I fussy cut around the mask and placed it to the side to use a little later. I then proceeded to colour in my image with Copic markers.

Once the colouring of the image was complete, I was ready to create the sky. To accomplish this, the mask that I had set aside earlier was placed over top of the coloured image. A mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks were then used: Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Dusty Concord inks. Once, the background was completed, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using my MISTI and VersaMark ink. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

I was now ready to add the final finishing touches. To do this, I added in the snowflakes and stars using Gelly Roll Sakura #10, #8 and #5 Pens. Stickles – Cool Mint was added to the little lady’s hat, pom-pom and coat cuffs. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel was applied with a spatula along the bottom of the card to create some sparkling snow and also to the top of the chimney with a Q-Tip. I also coloured in the little snowflake in the sky with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 pen and then Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear to make it sparkle. I set the card aside to let the glitter dry for a few hours.

For the card base I used Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 and edged around all of the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Iced Spruce. I die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper to the size 3.75″ x 5″ using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and Cuttlebug. This was adhered directly onto the base using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Once the glitter was completely dry, I layered the completed image on top of the second layer using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
