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.

Easter Egg Gift!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Easter card using this hoppy little Bunny With Gift – S118 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Script Easter Greetings – F093 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Look at how “hoppy” he is to share his  decorated egg with a special person! I don’t know about you, but I hope it’s filled with chocolate. LOL!

To make my card this week, I used Recollections – Hot Buy Pre-Cut Cards for my base folded at 5.5″ x 4.25″. Next I die cut Hot Buy – Recollections – Spring Posies using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die. Using some spare ribbon I had, using some double-sided tape, I attached it directly to this die-cut. Then, using double sided tape, I attached this piece directly to the base card. The aqua colour paper is from Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones. I created this die cut using my Cuttlebug and Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Rectangle Die Set.

The frame for the sentiment was created in Microsoft Word and then printed out onto white cardstock. This was coloured in with ZIG Clean Color Markers – 050 – Yellow and 025 – Pink. I stamped the Bunny With Gift – S118 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Script Easter Greetings – F093 sentiment using my MISTI. Using my Brother Scan and Cut, I cut around the image leaving a small white border. This was coloured in with Copic Markers.

To assemble the remainder of my card, I first used some double-side tape to attach the finished sentiment to the bottom of the aqua die cut. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to both pieces and attached to card. Lastly, the completed image was attached to the die cut, using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Posing Easter Bunny!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Easter card using this sassy little Posing Bunny – R080 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. She’s all prettied up with her Easter Bonnet and wanted to show it off. LOL!

To make my card this week, I used Recollections – Hot Buy Pre-Cut Cards for my base folded at 5.5″ x 4.25″. Next I die cut Craft Smart – Hot Buy – Spring & Hop using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die. This was inked all around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mermaid Lagoon. It was then attached directly to the base card using Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue. The big Easter Egg is from Simple Stories – Bunnies & Baskets. This was popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

I stamped Posing Bunny – R080 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) using my MISTI and then used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around it. This was coloured in with Copic Markers and I gave her eyes some eyelashes. I added this to the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To complete the card I added in some flowers.

Come To Save The Day!


It’s Wednesday, and this week using High Hopes Stamps, I made a slim line card using  Sir Dustin – T177Jousting Dragon – S221 and Castle – R092 images and Here I Come…. – F248 for the sentiment. I love fantasy and dragons and thought these images were so much fun to play with.

I made my slim line card using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock for my base folded at 4″ x 9″.

I stamped the images and sentiment using Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut the Copic paper with PinkFresh Studio – Essential Slim Cuts to use for the background. I decided to stamp the castle and sentiment directly onto the background. The other 2 images were stamped separately and then I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around them and fussy cut where they still had some white around the images.

I coloured in the Castle – R092 using Royal Blue colours for the flags, the same as Sir Dustin – T177 who I coloured in as the Blue Knight. I added some extra bricks onto the castle to give it some more texture. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die stencils that I made using the die cuts, I coloured in the sky. To give some texture to the grass, I first used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn. Then I enhanced the colours using my Copic markers. I added some glue onto the back of the coloured image and attached it directly to the base card.

Sir Dustin – T177 was coloured in with Copic Markers and then I used a black marker to go around the entire image. This was popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the background. I used Royal Blues for his outfit and Royal Purples and gold for his dragon.

Lastly, I coloured in Jousting Dragon – S221 as the Red Knight with Copic Markers and then I went around the image with a black marker. I decided to make him the Red Knight and added a “D” to his shield for “Dragon”. LOL! The image was popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card.

More Bubbles!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a fun card using  Burts Bath – R103 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Filled With Bubbles – H119 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Burt sure looks happy as he’s letting all of his troubles float away! LOL!

To make my card this week, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock for my base folded at 5.5″ x 4.25″. For the main background, I used Doodlebug Design Inc. – Under The Sea paper cut to the same size as the base and attached it using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry was used to ink around all of the edges. Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Pillows Die was used to cut out the shape for the sentiment and Die-Namics My Favourite Things – PCD Fishtail Figs STX for the flag behind the sentiment. I inked around the edges of the sentiment die cut with Copic Marker – BV04 to frame it. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers was used to ink around the edges of the flag. Avery Elle – Wonky Stitches Die was used to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.

I stamped the image and sentiment using Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI and coloured in the image using Copic markers. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the coloured image and attached it to the base card. I ran the flag through my Xyron Create a Sticker as I wanted it to lay completely flat against the background. I attached this to the base and then added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the sentiment and attached it over top of the flag and the base. To complete the card, I added a few bubble embellishments from The Robin’s Nest – Peony using Ranger Glossy Accents.

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

Embossing Powder: Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder

Missing You!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Thoughtful Kimberly – H202 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and One Of Those Days – F252 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I think the sentiment says it all for this card. With Covid, so many of us are not able to see our loved ones, so we can dream of when we will be able to see them all again soon.

To make my card this week, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. for my base at 4.25″ x 5.5″. I ran some brown cardstock through my Cuttlebug using Darice – Brick Wall Background. Then I inked on top of it using a variety of Tim Holtz distress inks which I have listed below. To make the window frame, I die cut the window using Spellbinders Die D-Lites – S2-016- Window Two using my Cuttlebug and Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb paper. I die cut this twice. I cut the centre frame out of both windows. I used the first die-cut window to create my base. Then, I cut the patterned paper from Creative Memories – Secret Garden to create my background for behind the little girl. I also cut Judi-Kins – Embossable Window Plastic to match the size of the side windows and the window above the girls head. I glued the plastic windows to each side of the window frame and then attached the second cut piece over top with glue. For the top window, I attached the plastic window behind it first and then added the background paper to it and the entire open window.

I stamped both the images and sentiment using my Misti and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image using Copic Markers. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut out the image. The sentiment and frame were cut with My Creative Time – Rectangle Dies. I ran the cut sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then placed it directly on top of the larger rectangle. I added the little girl to the inside of the window using glue on the back of her. To complete my card, I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the window centre part and the large rectangle and popped them up top of the brick background.

It’s Wednesday, and this week, I’m sharing another Valentine’s card I made using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Horsin’ Around Horsey – P130. This little horse and his little friend are trotting by to wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day.

To make my CAS card today, I used The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 4.25″ x 5.5″. I die cut the 2 background hearts papers from Martha Stewart Crafts – Enchanted Woodland, using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. The image was stamped onto the die cut using my Misti and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image using Copic Markers. Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Festive Berries to ink around the edges of all of the die cuts.

To assemble the card, double-sided tape was used to adhere the first layer directly to the card base. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the backs of the coloured image and second layer of pattened paper and then they were added to the base.

Thank Ewe!!


Hi Everyone! On December 11, 2020, I went in to have Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Surgery. The surgery went really well with no complications and I was home on the same day. I had a lot of rest over the past month, recovering, sleeping long hours and sleeping peacefully knowing that I no longer had to worry. I started back to work remotely last week. It was a long awaited surgery and I was extremely happy to have been lucky enough to have it during these Covid times, as many surgery’s were being cancelled. I had been dealing with Pre-Cancer off and on for the past 12 years beginning in my late 40’s, having multiple smaller operations and taking medication. My aunt had died in her 50’s because she didn’t seek help from a doctor until it was too late and my mother was also diagnosed with Uterine Cancer in her early 50’s as well. Thankfully, my mom was just in the early stages and had the operation in time and has had no issues since. It’s amazing how far technology and science have come. Not long ago, you would have spent a minimum of 2 weeks in the hospital and then another 5 – 6 weeks to recover at home.

As a thank you to the surgeons and nurses that took such good care of me before, during and after my surgery, I made them all cards to express my thanks. I thought I would share them with you and hope you like them too.

All of the cards used Hammermill 5.5″ x 4.25″ for the base. For the front of my cards, I made them all the same using Wooly Lambs (Craftin Desert Divas) retired stamp for the sentiment and main image. I coloured it in with Copic markers and then stamped the image again onto Post-It note to used as a mask. I layered the mask over top of the lamb and used my cloud stencil that I made from Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean to create the clouds. The embossed front was made using Cuttlebug – Thank You Embossing Folder.

To make the inside of the nurses card, I used Proud Nurse Set – 4899 (Art Impressions) for the main image and top sentiment and Craftin Desert Divas – Tissue Time for the bottom sentiment. I coloured in the image with Copic markers.

For the inside of the cards for the surgeons, I printed out the stamps from MFT_BB090_SuperHeroinScrubs_Printable (My Favourite Things) and MFT_BB091_DoctorsOrders_Printable (My Favourite Things) for the images and sentiments using High Quality Grayscale. Then coloured them in with Copic Markers.

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″.

Gobble Till You Wobble!!


Our American friends are celebrating Thanksgiving this week and I couldn’t resist sharing this adorable little Harvest I Gnome from KLM Digital Designs new November release. The image comes with 3 different sentiments, “Gobble ‘Til You Wobble”, which I’ve used on my card and also, “Seasons of Thanks” and “Give Thanks”.

I decided to make this card a fun easel card. I love the little gnome and the sentiment that came with it. Here is a close-up of the gnome.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.

I used Hammermill paper to create the base shape of the card 8.5″ x 4.25″. I scored the paper at 5.5″ and 8.25″.  I also, cut some Hammerill paper to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the Gnome background paper to the same size using PhotoPlay – Gnome for the Holidays Thanksgiving. I also used this same paper for the inside of the card. The oval was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Elizabeth Craft – Accordian Circle Card 769 using Pebbles – Harvest paper. The sentiment was die cut with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin ink was used to ink around all of the edges of the pieces.

The card was now ready to put together. I adhered the Gnome background paper to the Hammermill 5.5″ x 4.25″ separate piece that was cut earlier. The Pebbles – Harvest paper was attached to the inside of the card. I popped up the oval background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To finish off the card, I added a added an Action Wobble Spring, so that this little Harvest Gnome could gobble till he wobbled. LOL!

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.

Santa in the Chimney!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring Santa in Chimney – S202 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) paired with the sentiment Bold – From One Flake – K201 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). December is almost here and Santa is on his way to deliver all of the goodies to everyone. Hope your not on the naughty list. LOL!

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. I stamped the image again and used it as a mask. I have a magnetic cutting mat, so I just used a very strong magnet to hold the mask down. Then I used multiple Tim Holtz Distress Inks to create the sky.

Once the sky was created, I removed the mask and used My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame to die cut the image. I added the sentiment using the top half of the sentiment stamp only. To do this, using my MISTI to get a good clean stamped image, I used VersaMark Ink and then embossed it with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was then heated using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

To finish off my background, I added in some snowflakes and stars using Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen. For the eyes and notches on the belt, Sakura Glaze – Black ink was used. For the snow on the roof top, Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel was applied with a little sprinkle of Martha Stewart Crafts – Crystal Fine Glitter. Stickles was added to the hat, collar and cuffs of Santa’s outfit.

To create the layers, I first die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and then the dark blue panel with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame dies. For the card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper, which was cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″ and then scored at 4.25″ and to create a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″.

To assemble the remainder of the card. I placed the dark blue layer directly to the base using double-sided tape. The silver layer was applied the same way. The coloured image was then popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Little Cup of Cocoa


Coffee Loving Cardmakers is currently hosting the 2020 Fall / Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! For my Fourth entry into this hop, I chose this loveable snowman in a hot tub of Cocoa called Snow Yummy – S182  by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. For the sentiments I used High Hopes Rubber Stamps, Cup of Cocoa – M009 and Holiday All Year – H200.

The image was stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI to give me a nice clean image. The image was coloured with copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. I used a black marker to go around all of the edges where I had cut out the image.

I cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper to be 4.25″ x 11″. Then I scored the paper at 5.5″ and again at 8.25″. (2.75″ from the original score line). I cut another piece of the cardstock at 4.25″ x 5.5″ to be the front panel. I then cut Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to be 4.25″ x 5″ and used double-side tape to place it directly to the front panel piece. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was used to create the snow. I cut it 4.25″ wide and then just tore a piece across the width to create the shape. I used double-sided tape to adhere this directly to the bottom of the front panel.

The sentiments were then added with Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was then heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. To create the rectangles, I used  My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers  for the patterned paper and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies for the background rectangle using Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones. Next, I ran the small sentiment and the coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station to create stickers out of them. This made it easer to adhere the larger image to the background and the smaller sentiment to the larger rectangle.

The card was now ready to assemble. I applied double-sided tape to only the lower half of the scored card and then placed the finished scene panel onto it. I cut another piece of patterned paper at 4-1/8″ x 3″ and adhered it the lower half of the inside card. Then I popped up the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added some Wink of Stella – Clear  to the snowman to make him sparkle and Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear and the Wink of Stella – Clear to the large snowflake on the mug. Lastly, I added some Stickles – Diamond to add some texture to the snow.

Define Naughty!


Hi Everyone! I’m participating in the 2020 Cat Lovers Blog Hop (#2020CatLoversHop) this year.

This is my third year joining the fun event. For six years, Her Peaceful Garden has been sponsoring The Cat Lover’s Blog Hop and it is a lot of fun.

This year, I created a Christmas card using  Callie Christmas Kitty – R096 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Define Naughty – FLL004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I just love this adorable stamp and it reminds me so much of how my cats used to love playing with the Christmas tree ornaments every year. We definitely learned our lesson after the first time, 2 of our little babes as kittens decided it would be fun to take down the entire tree. After that happened, all ornaments put on the tree were unbreakable and cat friendly. LOL!

To make my card, I started with a base of 6″ x 6″. I cut some Recollections – Cranberry cardstock to the same size and attached it directly to the base. For the main background, I used my Cuttlebug and Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Squares – Set B to die cut Recollections – Christmas Pets paper. I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Weathered Wood and applied it to the base using 2-sided tape.

For smaller background Recollections – Cranberry cardstock was used and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper for the main image. I used My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers die cuts. Copic Markers were used for the main image. Once the image was coloured, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and applied Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder which I heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

To complete the card, I attached the main image to the red backing with 2-sided tape. Then I popped up the small background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I applied Diamond Stickles all around the frame of the image and added a little green bow and some pop-dots to finish off the card.

Little Nutty Buddy


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a card featuring Little Nutty Buddy – M150 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with the sweet sentiment Happy Fall Y’all – G086 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). My husband and I went on a wonderful nature walk this past weekend through the forest to see to falls. It was very beautiful seeing the fall colours and the little squirrels running around gathering acorns for their winter supply of food, just like little Nutty Buddy.

To create the card this week, I began with base card 5.25″ x 4.25″ from The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours. I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Ground Espresso. The scalloped circles were die cut using my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders Nestabilities – Petite Scalloped Circles – Large. For the larger circle – AC Cardstock – Autumn was used and then inked around with the same ink used on the base card. The background acorn paper was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. Both of the background papers are from Your Next Stamp – Fabulous Fall collection. I inked around the patterned die cuts with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade.

The sentiment was stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then Nellie Snellin Die – MFD 007 was used to cut it out. I then cut the border part of the die cut off and just left the oval centre. This was inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade. 2 Kraftin’ Kimmie – Holiday Dots were added on both sides.

I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. It was coloured in with Copic Markers. Then I put it through my Brother Scan and Cut to create the thin white border around the image.

To assemble the card, I attached the main background and large scalloped circle directly to the base using 2-sided tape. The sentiment, smaller scalloped circle and image were popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Pumpkin Kisses!!


Today I’m sharing  Pumpkin Girl (KLM Digital Designs) image from the October release. This little lady has her pumpkin all picked out for Thanksgiving. Now she can make some pumpkin pies and then carve out the pumpkin for Hallowe’en. Here in Canada, we celebrate our Thanksgiving this weekend. So Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and then fussy cut it in a few places. It was then coloured in with Copic markers. The sentiment was printed out on plain white cardstock and then I fussy cut around it, in order to spread it out. Then I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to some black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around it again.

The backgrounds were die cut with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers. The printed background was then inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin.

To assemble the card, I began with a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. The 2 background pieces were adhered to the base using double-sided tape. The image and sentiment were both popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, some Kraftin’ Kimmie – Krafty Dots were added as embellishments.

Happy Fall Y’All


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a card featuring Fall Joy – T041 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with the sweet sentiment Happy Fall Y’All – G290 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). These racoons are having a blast playing in the leaves. We used to do that too when we were little. So much fun. I love seeing all of the beautiful fall colours. Such a wonderful time of the year.

 

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layer Dies and my Cutttlebug, I die cut the main image and the background layers.

For the base card 5.25″ x 4.25″, I used The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours. The backing behind the main images is from AC Cardstock – Autumn. I attached the main image to this piece using double-sided tape. The plaid paper is from PhotoPlay – Gnome for the Holidays Thanksgiving. Once this background paper was die-cut, all of the edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin. This was then applied directly to the base with double-sided tape.

To complete the assembly, I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape on the back of the first layers and popped them up onto the bottom 2 layers. The sentiment was stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black in and I fussy cut around it. I ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then layered it onto some Orange cardstock. Then I fussy cut around it again and ran it through my Xyron as well. Then I inked around the edges with the same Tim Holtz ink I used earlier. I placed it over the main image and used 2 very small pieces of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape where it went over the edges of the main image.

Basketball Birthday!!


Today I’m sharing  Basketball Player (KLM Digital Designs) image from the September release. When creating this card, I thought of my younger brother who used to eat, sleep and dream about basketball all the time when he was young. You barely ever saw him without a basketball in his hand. He was always on the basketball court, shooting hoops or playing games. He actually excelled in a lot of sports and won the trophy for all around athlete in High School. Of course, that was many, many, many years ago. LOL!

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was then die cut with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers and then coloured in with Copic markers.  For the sentiment, I brought the original digital image into Microsoft Word and then used the developer tools to crop it so that it went into 3 lines to fit my image better. Then I printed it out and fussy cut around it. The sentiment was then layered onto some chocolate brown cardstock and fussy cut again.

For the basketball background paper, I downloaded from the site listed below and then printed it out on my printer. I die cut it with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies then glued directly onto the The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 5.5″ x 4.25″ cardstock base. The main image was adhered directly to the chocolate brown cardstock. I added a small basketball brad and then popped up the entire image onto the background using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The sentiment was also popped up.
