Valentine’s Card for my Hubby


“Hi There,

Liked to share the card I made for my husband this year with you.

Forever Yours

For the front of the card, I used a design that I found in “Complete Cardmaking – Making Beautiful Cards with your PC” magazine.

The original design by Nancy Malaka can be found on page 27 and is called “Forever Yours”.

I uploaded the .jpg from the CD into Cricut Design Studio for the couple and then used the “Print and Cut” feature to print the image to my printer and then Cricut Explore to cut my image for me. Love this new feature!

Next, I used my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers to colour the image. PrismaColor Premier Pencils were used for creating more contrast and shadow.

Using Cricut Design Studio, I used the following cartridges:

Background: Paper Lace II – Gears

Lettering: Cricut Alphabet

Clock: Picturesque – Clockface Circle Card Seal

Clock Hands: Gypsy Wanderings – Clock Hand

Heart design: Elegant Edges – Heart Scallop Design Label

Scalloped Rectangles – Elegant Edges – Heart Rectangle Design Label (Removed Heart with Design Studio)

The following papers were used:

Scrap paper for wood background.

Light brown for gears background and went around edges with Walnut Stain Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Greyish Blue was used for large scalloped label behind clock.

Newspaper cardstock for smaller scalloped label behind clock and went around edges with Walnut Stain Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

For the inside of the card:

Todd Valetine 2015

I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Peachy Keen stamps from PKS-04 April 2012 for the clocks and sentiments. Cutting them after they were coloured.

The faces are from PKS-1357 Sweet on You Face Assortment.

Background paper is from K&C Company Kelly Panacci designer paper, KP  Valentine.

Copics and Spectrum Noir pens to colour faces and hearts in background.

Some pink chalk to colour cheeks.

 

 

Boo’s Valentine Card


This was Boo’s Valentine card to the vet this year. I make cards for all occasions for her vet.

This is a little late getting posted, but I thought I would share it with you anyways.

To make this easel card, I used my Cricut Explore to cut the heart out of the cardstock and the really adorable cat from Miss Kate Cuttables.

The cat was a free svg download from http://www.misskatecuttables.com/.

It can be found here: http://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/animals-pets/freebie-of-the-day-cute-valentine-kitty.php

I altered the pattern to give my cat pink paw pads and a tail that was all black.

The sentiment is from Peachy Keen stamps PKS-13 January 2103.

Hillbilly Holler Get Well Card


Today, I thought I’d share a get well card that I made for my Uncle who isn’t feeling very well right now.

It’s from the Peachy Keen Hillbilly Holler Set One – SY900.

To the left is the front of the card. On the bottom is the inside of the card.

For both cards, I stamped the images using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto special cardstock used for Copics, Spectrum Noir and Prismacolor Pencils.

Next I coloured both images in with Prismacolor Premier coloured pencils and then used some Gamsol and blending stumps to blend the colours.

Lastly, I stamped both of the sentiments from the same stamp collection.

Hope you like it!

Deer and Xmas Tree


Deer and Tree

To make this card I used Peachy Keen PKSC-11 November 2012 for the reindeer and coloured them in with Copics, Spectrum Noir Markers and Prismacolor Premier coloured pencils.

The Christmas tree was stamped from Peachy Keen collection Fun ‘n’ Flair Stamps (FNF-01 Miss Shayla at Christmas Time) and then coloured in with Copic markers. Next, I added in the snow on the branches with Aleene’s Glitter Snow and added some pearls for the Christmas tree balls.

The snow is made with paper from Glitter Paper from “The Paper Studio Christmas Cardstock Pack”.  I cut it and then offset the curves and highlighted the top lower layer with some blue ink.

The sentiment is made from Peel Offs and the background is from the Recollections Frost card and envelope collection.

Reindeer Elf Card


Hi There,

Here is a Step card that I made using the Step Die from Local King Rubber Stamps.

Then I used Peachy Keen Stamps monthly stamp set from:

PKSC-11 November 2012 to create the design.

I put in several shots here so that you could see it at different angles.

I used Black Tuxedo Memento ink to stamp the images. Then coloured them in using Copic markers and Prismacolor Premier Coloured Pencils.

I used scraps of design papers that I had and used glitter paper for the snow.

Then I added a little bit of Snow-Tex at the hoofs of the reindeer.

Happy Hallowe’en 2014


Halloween 2014 Front Halloween 2014 Inside

Hi There,

Here is my latest addition for a Hallowe’en card to the vet this year from “Boo” our black cat.

To make the card I used orange cardstock. I then layered the front with some paper from Doodlebug Design Inc. Hallowe’en Parade.

Used my Cuttlebug and Nesting circle cutting die to cut a hole through the front of the card. I used a smaller circle die and some yellow cardstock to make the moon on the inside of the card.

I used Mememto ink to stamp the pumpkin using a stamp from PKSC-09_September 2012. Then I used copic markers to colour and outline the stamp. For the face I used PKSC-22_October 2013.

Next I used just the face portion of the cat from PK-1333 Faceless Puppy and Faceless Kitten and the kitten face that also came with the stamp. Coloured in the stamp using Spectrum Noir markers.

The ghosts were made using PK-131 Happy Haunting Ghosts.

PK and PKSC are all stamps from Peach Keen Stamps.

Lastly, I added a few embellishments to finish off the card.

Happy Hallowe’en everyone!
