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. Using my MISTI, Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail, I embossed the sentiment onto a scrap piece of green cardstock.

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.

Dress Up The Christmas Tree!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19090.  These little woodland creatures are enjoying their new tree on a snowy evening. Do you have an outdoor Christmas tree?

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 Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. Your Next Die – Stiched Frame Snowfall Hill was used to die cut Creative Memories – Glacier Designer Paper Pack for the snow frame and glued to the base background. With My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I also die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock to the size of 4.5″ x 3.25″.

I stamped the image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I coloured in the image with Copic Markers. The sentiment was added using Versamark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heated up with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The background snow was applied with a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Crayola – Yellow Glitter Glue was applied to the glow around the star of the tree and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff combined with WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter was used to create the snow on the bottom. Stickles – Diamond was applied between the snow drifts to create a little more glitter. Nuvo Crystal Drops – Dandelion Yellow, Red Berry and Caribbean Ocean were applied to the tree for decorations. Once everything was dry, I applied U-Line double-sided tap to the back of the coloured image and applied it to the base to complete the card.

Wishing You All The Best!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Wishing You All The Best – D20010.  This little girl is on her way to bring you some Christmas Cheer!

To make this card I used a base of 6″ x 6″ using AC Cardstock – White. I cut the background paper to the same size using Recollections – Glisten and Glow paper and then using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I outlined all sides. This was added directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and dies from Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Oval, the frame was cut out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I stamped the image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the die cut and then using the Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I inked around all of the outside edges. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and then applied Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear to the fur trims for the hat and clothing. I applied WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter to the inked areas and then heat embossed everything with my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. Using 3M double-sided tape, I popped up the oval onto the main background. To finish off the card, I applied some Stickles – Golden Rod to the centres of some of the larger snowflakes.

Time to Celebrate!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Let’s Celebrate – D19074 for the main image and Christmas Snow Scene – M18313 for the background. For the sentiment, I used Holiday Sentiments Set 001 – D163001

 

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers Die were used to die-cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. Using the background stamps, I stamped the background using my MISTI and Memento – Summer Sky ink. I coloured in the sky, trees and house with Copic markers and then added some snow using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Once this was done, I added Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel – Iridescent to the remainder of the die cut for the sparkling snow. I added a little bit more where the boys feet would land and set it aside to dry. Once again, I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and stamped the main images. I coloured them in with Copic markers and then applied Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear to the fur trims for the hats and clothing. I applied WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter to the inked areas and then heat embossed everything with my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. For the pompoms, I applied Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and then heat embossed the liquid for it to puff up. For the present, I added some gold swirls using a Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen. Then I fussy cut around the images leaving a thin white border. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Lawn Fawn – Peacock Ink on to the base card. Then I stamped it again, this time using Versamark ink and then added Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heat embossed it.

The card was now ready to assemble. Using double-sided tape, I attached the background to the scalloped border. I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the scalloped border and popped it up onto the base card. Using 3M double-sided tape, I popped up the main image and present onto the background. A little more of the Stickles – Diamond was added to snow where his feet are to complete the card.

Merry Little Christmas!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called The Most Wonderful Gift Of All – D18038 and for the sentiment Happiness Is Time Spent With A Good Friend – D20009. Do you remember playing with your train sets at Christmas time? I remember playing with my brothers and cousins sets. It was always so much fun watching the trains go around the tracks.

 

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. For the background paper, I used Recollections – Burgundy cardstock cut to the same size as the base. The background layer was cut from Carta Bella – Santa’s Workshop paper, cut to the size of 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was used to ink around the edges and it was attached to the burgundy background using double-sided tape. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die was used to die-cut the Recollections – Burgundy cardstock for the background to go behind the coloured image. This was popped up onto the main background with 3M double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto this die cut. I then taped the die cut back over the paper and coloured in the image using Copic markers. This allowed me to keep a thin white border around the coloured image. Stickles – Diamond was used to fill in the area on the inside of the tracks to represent a snowy base. I used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to add some snow to the little trees and some of the roof tops. Once the Stickles was all dry, I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink. This was embossed using my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the coloured image and popped it up.

Lastly, I placed some washi-tape onto white cardstock and trimmed it to have a thin white border. I ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker so that it would lay flat and placed it onto some Recollections – Burgundy cardstock. Using my paper trimmer, I trimmed around the edges and them popped it up onto the background using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish off the card.

There’s A Nap For That!!


Sharing a birthday card that I made for my husband using Art Impressions – Lazy Boy Set – Ai4159 and Stampin’ Up – Country Club Designer Series Paper for the golf player background. I’ve taken a few pictures over the years of my hubby in this exact position and couldn’t resist this stamp when I saw it. He laughed as soon as he saw the card and said it looked just like him too. LOL!

 

To make the card, I began with the base of 5″ x 5″ 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. I coloured in the backgound picture with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail onto American Crafts – “Holiday” paper. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder.

The card was now ready for assembly. I cut some light brown cardstock to the size of 5″ x 3.75″ and attached it directly to the base. I cut the background picture to the size of 3-3/8″ x 2-7/8″ and cut some dark brown cardstock to the size of 3-5/8″ x 3″ and used double-sided tape to attach them both together and to the base card. The flooring background with the sentiment was cut to 5″ x 1″ and attached using double-sided tape to the bottom of the card. Lastly, I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the image after fussy cutting around it and attached it to the card.

Sharing a card I made using Clearly Whimsy Stamps – Get Well Dragons – DP1034 for a colleague that had a knee operation recently. I wanted to make a fun card to cheer him up a bit and thought this was the perfect image to make it happen.

To make the card, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then fussy cut around it leaving a thin white border. I stamped all of the sentiments onto black cardstock using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail powder. The embossing powders were all heated with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The smaller sentiments were all die cut using my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals. For the background, I used my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Rounded Tags dies to die cut the background paper – Asuka Studio – Sparkly Sky and black cardstock. I die cut the grass using Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders and Sizzix Rounded Tags. I inked the top border of the grass with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint.

The card was now ready to assemble. I started with a base card of 5.5″ x 4.5″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. I applied double-sided tape to the back of the black die cut, The patterned paper and the grass cut and applied them all directly to the card. I ran 2 of the “Ouch!” die cuts through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached them to the top of the card.  Using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I popped up the image and 2 other sentiments to finish off the card.

Be-Lated Birthday Chicks!!


Sharing a belated birthday card I made for my sister-in-law using Art Impressions – Spring Chicken Set – AiCS40. I really had fun with these cool Chicks! LOL!

Inside of the card.

To make the card, I began with the base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut Echo Park Paper Co. – My Favorite Winter paper. I just loved this paper and thought it had the look of barn board for the chicken coop. Double-sided tape was applied to the back of the background paper and it was applied directly to the base card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony was used to ink around all of the edges of the card. Using Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles dies, I die cut 1 large circle from black cardstock and 1 smaller circle from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Down on the Farm paper. I inked around the smaller circle with the same Tim Holtz ink. I applied the 2 circles together using double-sided tape and then added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the larger circle and attached it to the background. The speech bubble was die cut with Spellbinders Die D-Lites – Conversation Bubble 4 and my Cuttlebug.

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 both images. I popped up the image on the front with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and ran the second image through my Xyron Creative Station to make a sticker out of it and placed it on the inside of the card. All of 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 Too heated the powder. The sentiment bubble was popped up onto the front of the card with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
