By The Moonlight!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Hallowe’en card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps By The Moonlight – TT047 for the image and Block Happy Halloween – FF049 for the sentiment. These little friends are ready for some spooky fun on Hallowe’en.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb., cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I die cut the background from Stampin’ UP! – Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper to be the same size as the base. Using a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot, Villainous Potion, Seedless Preserves and Fossilized Amber and finger daubers, I added some extra colour to the background. Martha Stewart – Hallowe’en Washi Tape was placed across the bottom. I cut Doodlebug Design Inc. – Hallowe’en Parade cardstock to the size of 1-1/8″ x 4.25″. I ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker and adhered it to the base card above the washi tape.

I stamped the main image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The main image was a little short for the full width of the card so I added some double-sided tape to a couple scraps of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and adhered them to both sides of the fence. The image and sentiment were then both coloured in. The image was fussy cut and U-Line double-sided tape was applied to it. I popped it up onto the card and then cut off the excess from the fence on both sides.  I cut around the sentiment and then ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it to a piece of Recollections – Black cardstock. Once again, I used my cutter to go around the sentiment, leaving a slight border. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the sentiment and it was popped up onto the striped paper background to complete the card.

You Are My Son, Moon and Stars!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs –  L’il Boy Gnome from the new November release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “Happy Birthday” and “You’ll outgrow my lap, but never my heart!”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I added in an oval circle with a 2 pt border and placed it behind the sentiment to give me a guide line for where to cut when printed out. I printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut out the main image and I fussy cut out the moon. I coloured in the image and moon with Copic markers.

The base was created with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock cut and folded to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I attached the background pattern paper from Hunky Dory Crafts – Mirri Card – Starry Galaxies, cut to the same size as the base with double-sized tape. I ran the moon through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it onto the starry background and then cut off the excess around the bottom of the card. I added in some stickers onto the background using Forever In Time – Foil Fancy Stickers – Outer Space. The boy was added using U-Line double-sided tape to pop him up onto the card. To finish everything off and complete the card, I used W R Memory Keepers – Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to create .5″ rounded corners.

All Dreams Come True


It’s Wednesday, and this week, High Hopes Rubber Stamps new release Dreamy Willa – SLF010 is looking up into the stars and sharing this special moment with her little friend. I thought All Dreams Come True – G011 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) was the perfect sentiment to go with this adorable new image. Sometimes it’s nice to be just like Willa and just gaze up at the stars and just live in the peace and tranquility of the moment. Have you ever done this? I know I have.


To make my card this week, I started out with a base card of 6″ x 6″. Then I cut the main background the same size using Hot Buy Craft Smart – Moon Flower Magic. I just fell in love with this paper and thought it went so perfectly with the new image. I also die cut some miscellaneous cardstock that I had which had little stars and is navy blue using My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. I also, die cut the main image with the same set of dies out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The sentiment was die cut using My Creative Time – Ribbon End Dies. All of the die cuts were then edged with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint.

Both the main image and sentiment were stamped using my Misti and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The image was then coloured in using Copic markers which I have listed below. Once the image was all coloured, I bumped up the background, image and sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
