I Detect A Birthday!


Sharing a card that I made for my brother this week! For the main image and sentiment, I used It’s A Mystery (Kraftin Kimmie Stamps). My little brother retired from the OPP last year, so I thought this would be a fun card to make for him for his birthday this year.

To make the background for the card, I die cut multiple rectangles using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) in various brown cardstocks and some white Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock.

For the brick background, I used Darice – Brick Wall Embossing Folder and then various Tim Holtz inks listed below to give the different colours for the texture.

I coloured in the main images with Copic markers and then fussy cut around them leaving a thin white border. I stamped the lamp post using My Creative Time – Wishing You Were Here and then used the co-ordinating die cut to cut it out.

I used Sentiment Label Dies (My Creative Time) to die cut the ribbon and then stamped the sentiment using VersaMark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Which I heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Then I used the YNS die cut to trim off the edge so that it matched the rest of the card.

I layered all of the pieces together using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop them up and then 2-sided tape to mount the final rectangles onto the 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base.

It’s No Mystery!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Little Sleuth – R205 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for my main image and No Mystery – H204 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). This little sleuth has uncovered the clue to why he is so in love with his special someone. This card could be used for Valentine’s Day, Anniversary or even a birthday!

To make the background for the card, I die cut multiple squares using My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out in various brown cardstock and some white Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock.

For the brick background, I used Darice – Brick Wall Embossing Folder and then various Tim Holtz inks listed below to give the different colours for the texture.

I coloured in the main image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it and used a black marker to go around all of the edges.

I layered all of the pieces together using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop them up and then 2-sided tape to mount the final square onto the 6″ x 6″ card base.

To finish off the card, I used some brown twine and criss-crossed it to make a little bow and added in the question mark using some clear gems that I coloured with E23.

Sweet Birthday Dreams


Welcome Dreamerland Fans!

Some of you may be new to my blog since Dreamerland Crafts is introducing the 2019 design team and today is my day! I was so excited to be asked to join the Dreamerland team this year.

For my card, I thought the little boy hugging his pillow with his little kitten on his back was adorable! It made me think of making a birthday card with him sleeping and dreaming about all of his wishes coming true.

Dreamerland Crafts – Birthday 08  was used to create the sentiment and  Dreamerland Crafts – ZZZ was used for the image.

 

Here is a close-up of the little boy image:

To make the card, I first die cut the image from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and die cut from Spellbinders Labels 17. Then I stamped the image onto it using my MISTI (Most Incredible Stamping Tool) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Copics were then used to colour the image. I chose a starry background to represent night time for his dreaming! This was die cut with Spellbinders Labels 17 as well and then edged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. Sentiment from Dreamerland Crafts – “ZZZ” was then stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heated with Marvy Heat Embossing Tool.

For the sentiment, I used the die cut from My Creative Time – MCT 224. Sentiment was stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heated with Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough around the border of the die cut.

Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Shabby Shutters was used for edging around the card.

Both the main image and Sentiment were popped up with  3M VHB 2-sided tape.

Happy 80th Birthday – Queen for a Day


Sharing a card that I made a few years back for a very sweet lady who turned 80 and doesn’t look a day over 70. I wish I could look as good as her at her age. LOL!

Here is the inside of the card.

To make the card I used Art Impressions Stamps U4251 – Beauty in Progress  for the front of the card and Art Impressions Stamps Popcards – 4859 – Oldie PopCard for the inside. Both images were stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink using my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
