1st Communion!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Communion Cross from the new August release. This image comes with 3 sentiments. I’ve used 1 on my card, but you also have the choice of  “First Communion” and “On Your First Holy Communion”. This would be great image and sentiment to give to either your child or a friend’s child celebrating this blessed sacrament.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut the image and frame using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers dies. I coloured in the the image with Copic markers and then placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Starburst stencil over top and taped off the area that I wanted to use. Using Copic Y04, I coloured in the darker rays using the stencil as a guide. The tape was carefully removed from the top and sides of the stencil. The tape was placed back down at the top before removing the tape from the bottom of the stencil. After removing the stencil completely, the tape was placed back down on the 2 sides and bottom where the darker rays ended. Using the darker rays as a guide, I coloured in the lighter rays using Copic Y00 marker. All of the tape was removed at this point which left a nice thin white border around it.

Using the same dies again, I die-cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold to use for my background.

The card was now ready to assemble. Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. was used to create the card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. The gold background was added directly to the base using double-sided tape. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the back of the image to pop it up and it was placed directly over the gold background.

It Will Be Oak-ay!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Fall Oak Gnome from the July release. This image comes with 3 sentiments. I’ve used 1 on my card, but you also have the choice of  “Oak-ey Dokey” and “Hope You are Oak-ky”. I love the sentiment that I chose for this card because you could use it for so many different occasions. It could be used as a  “Get Well” card, an “inspirational card” for someone about to write a big exam or a “Just Because” card.

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut it to the size of 5.5″ x 4.5″ using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers dies. I inked around the brown layer with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Gathered Twigs and around the patterned paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and attached directly to the brown layer. The largest die cut which was cut from Your Next Stamp – Fabulous Fall patterned paper was applied directly to the card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock using double-sided tape. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the brown rectangle and adhered directly to the patterened paper. To complete my card, I added a little squirrel button from Dress It Up – Backyard Buddies using double-sided tape and glue.

Hugs!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called True Friendship – D18020 for the main image and sentiment. It’s always great to see our friends and give them a big hug. Now, it’s wonderful that more and more of my family and friends are getting their 2nd Covid shots, so we will all be able to hug each other again when we see each other. Have you given someone a hug today?

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I die cut the aqua and pink layers using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Rectangle Die Set. I trimmed off the loops and line pattern to create a slim border out of the pink cardstock. I applied liquid glue on the the back of the aqua design and adhered it directly to the base card. Next, I applied some double-sided foam tape to the back of the pink rectangle and placed it on  top of the aqua die cut.

For the main image, I first die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. Next, using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto this and coloured it in with Copic markers. I stamped a second image onto regular copy paper and fussy cut around the image by hand to create a mask. This I placed over top of the coloured image of the 2 little girls. I was able to create the cloudy sky using the stencil from Heffy Doodle – Cloudy Skies, a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China and a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush. The grass base was created with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn, Lawn Fawn – Slimline Grassy Hillside Stencils and a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush. Then, I removed the mask and added in a little more texture to the grass using the Copics listed below.

To create the “Hugs” sentiment, I first ran some black cardstock through my Xyron Create a Sticker. Then using the die-cut from Sugar Script – Hugs, I cut it out 4 times to create a raised image. Since, I had already made stickers out of them, it was easy to peel off the backing and layer them on top of each other. I layered the first 3 and then on the last layer, I first applied Stickles – Black Diamond to it and set it aside to dry. Once, it was dry, I added it as the top layer. I just loved how it had that added sparkle. LOL!

To complete my card, I applied some liquid glue to the back of the coloured image and then adhered it directly to the pink layer. I peeled the backing off of my bottom layer of “Hugs” and applied it directly to the coloured image.

Butterflies!!


Sharing a few cards I made today using Butterfly Whimsy – 2010 Elusive Images Stamp and a mixture of Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks and Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift Ink. I thought it would be fun to play with this technique. I used a little too much of the Alcohol inks and therefore I embossed the colourful card with Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder.


To make my cards, I first started out with some Yupo paper, the alcohol inks listed below, a blending tool and some blending solution. I kept adding colour and daubing the paper until I was satisfied with the background. I arranged the stamps in my MISTI and then applied some Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift-Ink to the stamps and stamped it onto the coloured Yupo paper. I removed this and then immediately placed my Hammermill paper which was cut to the same size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ into the MISTI in the same position and pressed down with the same stamps. This gave me my second card.

I added some purple spatters to the second card and then die cut both cards using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and then placed it onto The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 4.25″ x 5.5″ using double-sided tape. To finish off the card, I used some Kraftin’ Kimmie Festive Dots.

To finish off the first card, I used a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint was used to ink around the edges of the base card and then I applied double-sided tape to the back of the Yupo paper and applied it directly to the base.

Here are the 2 finished cards, side by side.

Card Recipe:

Stamps and Sentiment: Butterfly Whimsy – 2010 Elusive Images

Inks: Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift, VersaMark

Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks: Wild Plum, Purple Twilight, Raspberry, Sunset Orange, Sail Boat Blue, Stream, Blending Solution

Smell The Flowers!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Tink Picking Posies – T027 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Smell The Flowers – G189 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Most of the flowers are now in full bloom. It’s so wonderful to see all of the beautiful colours and smell the wonderful aromas of the flowers in our garden. So happy that my husband has such a green thumb and loves gardening!

To make my card this week, I stamped my image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. I stamped the image a second time onto plain copy paper and fussy cut around it to create a mask. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers were used to cut out the sentiment and background layer. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then put my mask over top of the coloured image. Using stencils that I had created earlier with Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Dies (D-05-01), I inked in the clouds using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. Once this was done, I removed the mask.

To assemble my card, I started with a base using Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes (5.5″ x 4.25″). I ran the coloured image through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it to the black cardstock. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, was applied to the back of the black frame and then it was attached directly to the base.

Just a Note!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Birdhouse #1 from the new June release for the image and sentiment. This image also comes with 2 other sentiments: “Welcome To The Neighbourhood” and “Thinking of You”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and the sentiment into Microsoft Word. I printed out the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and a second copy of the image onto copy paper using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around the image on the copy paper to create a mask using my Brother Scan and Cut.

The rectangles were die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. I fussy cut around the sentiment and inked around the yellow rectangle and sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. I placed the mask over the coloured image and added in my clouds using some stencils that I created previously using Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (D-05-01) and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn was added for the base background of the lawn.

To assemble the card, I began with a base card of The Paper Studio – Primary Simply Solids (4.25″ x 5.5″). I ran all of the elements through my Xyron Creative Station to create stickers out of them and so that they would lay completely flat when assembled. I added all of the layers directly to the base card. To finish it off, I added some CC Designs – Dragon Dreams Enamel Dots.

Living to be 110!!


Just loved the sentiment and the happy go lucky image called 5279 – Be Happy Laugh Lines by Art Impressions. I used to belong to a weight club called TOPS until Covid hit and thought this would be a fun card to make for one of my former Tops Pals.

Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image and sentiment were stamped onto the paper using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink. The image was coloured with Copic markers and I heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The image was then mounted onto Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes (5.5″ x 4.25″) cardstock.

Surfin’ Dudley!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used High Hopes Stamps’ image Surf Scene Dudley – S244. I’ve seen surfers in action while travelling the world, but have never gone on one myself. Who knows, maybe someday???? Dudley, sure looks happy sporting his vacation pose. LOL!

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 with Copic markers and used Copic – Opaque White to create the splash on the waves. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers were both used to die cut the coloured image and background papers. The edges were inked around with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. The image was then attached to the Aqua background using double-sided tape.

To assemble the card, I began with a base card of Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes (5.5″ x 4.25″). I popped up the 2 backgrounds with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and attached them both to the base card. Lastly, I added some pop-dots from CC Designs – Dragon Dreams Enamel to finish it off.

Rabbits Story Time!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Reading Gnome with Rabbits from the new June release. I think this image is such a peaceful scene. These little rabbits are really interested in the story about their cousin Peter Rabbit. We have a little family of wild rabbits that have adopted our backyard yard. I wonder if they’d sit close to me while I read to them. LOL!

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and copy paper using my HP Printer. Using my Cuttlebug, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut black cardstock and the image. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and I created the cloud background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Salty Ocean, Broken China, Tumbled Glass with a mixture of cloud stencils I created using Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie. I had used my Brother Scan and Cut to create the mask to put over the image while I created the clouds.

To assemble the card, I used Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes cardstock (5.5″ x 4.25″) for the base. Using double-sided tape, I attached the coloured image and black layer to the base card.

Live Life!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I’m sharing a card I made from the High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Mix It Up Release”  using Sports Car 1 – SS048 for the main image and Live Life – GG037 for the sentiment! It would be great to win a lottery and drive something similar to this awesome car! Then, I could rent a race track and speed around it. That would be sooooo much fun! LOL!

To make my card this week, I stamped the image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it and set it aside. A piece of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card was cut to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ for me to create my background. The background was also coloured in with Copic markers. Next, I die cut the background using my Cuttelbug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. The sentiment was die cut with Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies and for the outer square, My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out die was used. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire was used to ink around the edges of both squares.

To assemble the card, 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was attached to the backs of the car image, sentiment and larger blue square. The background coloured image was adhered directly to the base card of The Paper Studio – Primary Simply Solids (4.25″ x 5.5″). The car and the sentiment were than attached onto the main background.

Seas The Day!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Boating Gnome from the new June release. This stamp comes with 2 other sentiments, “It’s a boat time” and “You float my boat”. There’s nothing like getting up early in the morning and rowing a boat along a shore seeing the wildlife when you go camping. It’s so peaceful and serene.

Using my Cuttlebug, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut red, blue cardstock and the image. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and I created the cloud background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Salty Ocean, Broken China, Tumbled Glass with a mixture of cloud stencils I created using Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie. I had used my Brother Scan and Cut to create the mask to put over the image while I created the clouds.

To assemble the card, I used Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes cardstock (5.5″ x 4.25″) for the base. I attached the coloured image to the blue layer using double-sided tape. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to backs of the red and blue rectangles and attached directly to the base.

Hearts Warm!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Toasting Marshmallows – T026 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Hearts Warm – G063 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This image brings back so many memories of going camping and sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows. I gave my image coloured marshmallows, because growing up they were always my favourite! LOL!

To make my card this week, I started with a base of 6″ x 6″ using Recollections – Black cardstock. I taped Echo Park – Star Stencil on top of the cardstock and applied several Cosmic Shimmer – Opal Blaze Polishes using a spatula to create the nice starry background. I wanted my scene to look like the friends were in the woods, so I die cut some trees of various sizes using Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD001 – Mountains and Momenta – Cardstock. Once I die cut the trees, I added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Forest Moss and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint to add some more colour to them. Then, I ran the trees through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make it easier to apply them later. I felt the scene also needed a moon, so I die cut one using Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD002 – Sky and then coloured it in and added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of it and set everything aside.

I stamped my image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. I fussy cut around the top part of the image and then used a ruler to know where to cut the remainder of the bottom piece with my cutter. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then used a black marker to go around all of the fussy cut part of the image and Copic marker – YG67 was used to go around the edges of the grassy area. For the sentiment, I used My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers to cut out the sentiment and background layer. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it directly to the outer frame.

My card was now ready to assemble. I first adhered my starry background to a card base of AC – White cardstock sized at 6″ x 6″ using double-sided tape. Then, I used my coloured image to help me with the placement of where the trees would go. Since, I had already made stickers out of my trees, this was a fairly easy process. Once I was satisfied with their positioning, I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, to the back of the coloured image and sentiment frame and attached them directly to the base card. Lastly, I attached the moon to complete the scene.

Create Sunshine!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Goat Your Back – TT137 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Somedays – GG024 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This momma goat and her babes are out enjoying the warmer weather. Spring is finally here! We just planted our flowers this past weekend, or I should say, I helped pick them out and my husband actually did the planting. He has a green thumb. I definitely don’t. LOL!

To make my card this week, I started with a base of 6″ x 6″ using AC White Cardstock. I cut Bo Bunny – Sweet Moments Divine paper to be the same size as the base card and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive. I attached this directly to the base using double-sided tape. Using Doodlebug Design Inc. – Spring Solid Assortment paper, I die cut the yellow rectangle, large green rectangle and small green rectangle using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. The same dies were also used to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card for the main image. Gina Marie Designs – Nested Scalloped Stitched Rectangles were used to die cut Recollections – Petite Floral paper. The edges of this die cut were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Scattered Straw.

I stamped my image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card die cut. I coloured in the image and background using Copic markers. The sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I used my small cutter to cut around the sentiment and inked it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive. I die cut the sun and clouds using Copic Marker X-Press It Blending cardstock and Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD002 – Sky. I coloured these with Copic markers. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of 1 cloud and the sun and attached them to the main image. The other cloud was attached using glue and tucked under the sun.

The card was now ready to assemble. I attached the large green rectangle to the patterned paper base with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The main image and yellow rectangle were attached to the large scalloped rectangle using glue. Then the scalloped rectangle was attached to the large green rectangle with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I attached the sentiment to the smaller green rectangle and popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To finish off the card I used a few pop dots and some yellow flowers.

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.

Stamp: Santa in Chimney – S202 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

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.

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.
