Happy Birthday To Ye!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Peg Leg Pete – R088 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Pirates Birthday – F147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Peg Leg Pete is showing off his map of previous adventures from his pirating days around the Caribbean. He’s gathered quite a treasure of findings. But, when you are a pirate, there is always more places and ships out there to plunder. LOL!

To make my card this week, I used Scrapberry’s – The Pirate’s Treasure (6×6 Paper Collection) paper for the main background which fit onto a card base of 6″ x 6″ perfectly.

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and then coloured it in with Copic markers. Next, I fussy cut around the entire image and used a black marker to go around all of the edges.

To create the look of a ship in the background, I cut 2 small pieces of paper from Joy Crafts – Wood Texture and Joy Crafts Tough Textures miniature 4 x 9 designs. Then I joined them both together using 2-sided tape. Next, I ran both pieces through my Cuttlebug using My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles die cut. I popped up both the image and the small half circle background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and placed it in the centre of the card.

Once again, I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink for the sentiment. I taped down the sentiment onto some scrap red cardstock and bumped it up on the card with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Lastly, to finish it off, I went around the entire outer edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge and added a few Kraftin Kimmie – Seashore Dots.

Happy Bird Day!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Party Girl Florence – S098 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Happy Bird Day – F098 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Florence is all dolled up and ready for a Bird Day party! She’s the centre of attention with all of her bling, balloons, party hat and musical whistle. She’s also has some fancy moves in store for the Flamingo party dance! LOL!

To make my card this week, I started off with a white card base of 6″ x 6″. For the background paper, I used Forever in Time – Flamingo – Perfect Prints. I coloured the little party hats onto the Flamingos using PrismaColor Premier Pencils. Then I added some white pearls around their necks with Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point. Lastly, I edged around the paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Cracked Pistachio.

I used my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles MCT-D136 to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the image. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the pink and aqua circles. I ran the coloured image through a Xyron Creative Station to make it into a sticker and then mounted it onto the pink cardstock. Then I popped up this piece and the aqua circle with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I went around the edge of the pink circle with Hibiscus – Stickles and used Crystal – Stickles for the necklace around Florence’s neck.

I stamped the sentiment onto Yellow cardstock and the ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I mounted that onto some pink cardstock and then popped up this piece and the aqua cardstock with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I went around the pink cardstock with Hibiscus Stickles. To finish off the card, I added some Crafts – pop dots.

He’s holding onto his favourite little blanket! Did you have a favourite little toy or blanket that you carried everywhere with you as a child too?
