Birthday Girl! We Need To Put the Shades On!


Sharing a birthday card today that I made using Sunny Shades Set – SC4988 (AI Art Impressions) for both the image and sentiment.

To make this card, I used my MISTI to get a nice clean stamped image using Memento – Tuxedo Black and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next I die-cut out the stamped image and background papers using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers.

I mounted the background paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe – 6″ x 6″ paper pad onto a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then, I popped up the next layer using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I mounted the main coloured image onto some Hotpink cardstock and then cut a narrow edge around it. Lastly, I popped up it up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

True Friends!


Welcome Back KLM Digital Designs Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Bunny and Butterfly Digital Stamp (KLM Digital Designs)! I fell in love with this beautiful image as soon as I saw it. I found this stamp to be so peaceful and serene and I love the sentiment that KLM Digital Designs created to go along with it.

To make the card, I printed out the image and sentiment with my HP printer using High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I found this is the best print setting so that your ink won’t smear when you start colouring. I die-cut the image with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and coloured it in using Copic markers. Next I mounted the image onto some purple cardstock and left a small border all around it. I cut the sentiment and did the same.

To complete the card, I used a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and used double-sided tape to mount the background paper from K&Company – Susan Wright – SW Botanical. I popped up the image and sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and add some Kraftin’ Kimmie Pastel Krafty Dots.

Card Recipe:

Carrot Express!!!


It’s Wednesday, and Easter is quickly approaching. So for this week, I used Carrot Express – S055 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Canadian Easter Greetings – H139 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To put this card together, I first die-cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out.

I put the die-cut back over the image again and used it for a template to get a nice clean white border. I created a mask out of the image and used the die-cut from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean to create the sky background.

I mounted the plaid paper from Recollections – Easter Paper onto a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″and then edged around the image and card with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and embossed the sentiment using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and VersaMark.

Gone Fishing!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I used Anthony James – R022 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Gone Fishing Sign – G103 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

I come from a family that LOVES fishing. My dad has always loved fishing and now my older brother has fallen into his foot steps of loving to fish too. I remember going fishing with my dad and I thought I had a really, really big fish. We were all so excited until I pulled up a big chunk of grass reeds. LOL! The fish were jumping all around us, but we couldn’t seem to catch any that 1 day.

As soon as we were back on shore, you could see the huge fish playing all over the lake. I think they were just laughing at us. But I’m not a 100% sure. LOL!

To make the card, I first used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) to cut out the main image from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out to die cut the square out of some white cardstock. Then I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink to get a nice crisp image. I used various Copic markers listed below to colour in the image.

I decided to colour in the fish with PrismaColor pencils on the sentiment.

Next I ran both the coloured image and the sentiment through my Xyron Creative Station and placed both cuts over top of some green cardstock. Then I popped both up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

The base of the card is 5.5″ x 5.5″. I edged around the card and sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Bundled Sage. For a final touch, I added a little fish under the sentiment.

Stamp:  Anthony James – R022 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Love Every Little Moment


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Mix and Match Clear Stamps (DC19095) (Dreamerland Crafts)!  Love the images for this stamp. There are so many different scenes that can be created. I chose to do a night scene with the 2 best friends sharing the serenity of the night sky.

To make this card, I first die cut some Bristol paper and then drew in the hills with light pencil and traced around the stamps to get the general idea of placement. I created a masked image of the bear and bunny using Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and Post-It Note for the hills and cut them both out. Next I erased all of the lines so that you could barely see them and stamped the bear and the bunny image directly onto the Bristol Paper. Next, I mounted the mask of the characters and hills that I had cut out previously over top of the stamped images so that they would be protected while I coloured in the sky.

To do the sky I used a mixture of Tim Holtz inks listed below and PrismaColor pencils. Then I blended all of the colours together using Gamsol and a blending paper stump. I repeated the process with the PrismaColor pencils several times.

Once the sky was completed, I removed the stencil for the grass and proceeded to colour it in using the same technique that I had used for the sky.

Lastly, I removed the mask for the bear and bunny and coloured them in. I added in some small trees using a Black Prismacolor pencil.

I popped my finished image, back into my MISTI again and stamped the sentiment using VersaMark. I also stamped in the stars in the sky and embossed everything with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. I also used a brush and tapped some of the white embossing powder all over the sky. Then heated it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Lastly, I stamped and embossed the seagulls using VersaFine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I coloured them in using Black PrismaColor pencil and then added in some highlights on the wings.

I popped up the coloured image and blue cardstock with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
