Time to Celebrate!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Let’s Celebrate – D19074 for the main image and Christmas Snow Scene – M18313 for the background. For the sentiment, I used Holiday Sentiments Set 001 – D163001

 

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers Die were used to die-cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. Using the background stamps, I stamped the background using my MISTI and Memento – Summer Sky ink. I coloured in the sky, trees and house with Copic markers and then added some snow using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Once this was done, I added Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel – Iridescent to the remainder of the die cut for the sparkling snow. I added a little bit more where the boys feet would land and set it aside to dry. Once again, I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and stamped the main images. I coloured them in with Copic markers and then applied Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear to the fur trims for the hats and clothing. I applied WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter to the inked areas and then heat embossed everything with my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. For the pompoms, I applied Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and then heat embossed the liquid for it to puff up. For the present, I added some gold swirls using a Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen. Then I fussy cut around the images leaving a thin white border. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Lawn Fawn – Peacock Ink on to the base card. Then I stamped it again, this time using Versamark ink and then added Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heat embossed it.

The card was now ready to assemble. Using double-sided tape, I attached the background to the scalloped border. I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the scalloped border and popped it up onto the base card. Using 3M double-sided tape, I popped up the main image and present onto the background. A little more of the Stickles – Diamond was added to snow where his feet are to complete the card.

Merry Little Christmas!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called The Most Wonderful Gift Of All – D18038 and for the sentiment Happiness Is Time Spent With A Good Friend – D20009. Do you remember playing with your train sets at Christmas time? I remember playing with my brothers and cousins sets. It was always so much fun watching the trains go around the tracks.

 

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. For the background paper, I used Recollections – Burgundy cardstock cut to the same size as the base. The background layer was cut from Carta Bella – Santa’s Workshop paper, cut to the size of 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was used to ink around the edges and it was attached to the burgundy background using double-sided tape. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die was used to die-cut the Recollections – Burgundy cardstock for the background to go behind the coloured image. This was popped up onto the main background with 3M double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto this die cut. I then taped the die cut back over the paper and coloured in the image using Copic markers. This allowed me to keep a thin white border around the coloured image. Stickles – Diamond was used to fill in the area on the inside of the tracks to represent a snowy base. I used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to add some snow to the little trees and some of the roof tops. Once the Stickles was all dry, I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink. This was embossed using my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the coloured image and popped it up.

Lastly, I placed some washi-tape onto white cardstock and trimmed it to have a thin white border. I ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker so that it would lay flat and placed it onto some Recollections – Burgundy cardstock. Using my paper trimmer, I trimmed around the edges and them popped it up onto the background using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish off the card.

Merry and Bright!!


Today, I’m sharing a light up Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Lets Decorate Our Home – D18037 and for the sentiment Holiday Sentiments Set 003. It’s never too early to start making Christmas cards and here’s hoping that this card will brightens someone’s day this coming Christmas.

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. For the background paper, I used my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies to die cut American Crafts – “Holiday” paper. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers and then I adhered the background to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it in with Copic markers. I added some Stickles – Diamond to the pompom on the hat and fur at the top of the little girl’s boots. For the fluffy snow, I used Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and sprinkled on some DecoArt Glamour Dust while it was still wet. Using my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool, I heated up the liquid for it to puff up and look like sparkling snow. I poked holes in the card where I wanted the blue lights to go. I applied some tissue paper over the holes on the back of the image to diffuse the lights. Using Versamark ink and my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment and then applied Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This too was heated with my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. Lastly, added some snowflakes using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I then set the coloured image aside.

It was now time to set up the bright blue lights for the house using Chibi Lights, copper tape and a battery. I cut out an another rectangle slightly smaller than the coloured image. Placing the coloured image over top of the smaller rectangle, I used a pencil for the placement of the lights on the roof. For the placement of the battery, I used the remote in the girl’s hands as a guide. After mapping out the route for the lights, I place the copper tape down and added 3 blue Chibi Lights to the “+” and “-” paths leading back to the battery. The set up was tested to make sure the lights would come on. Once this was completed, I used 3 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape around the 3 sides of the battery to pop the image up high enough off of the card so that the battery would only light up the lights when someone pressed down on it. To keep the card even all the way around, I added 3 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the remainder of the smaller rectangle. The image was then attached to the smaller rectangle. I added some double-sided tape to the back of the smaller rectangle and adhered it directly to the card to finish it off.

Sending Big Hugs!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using this super adorable image from Dreamerland Crafts stamps called My True Love – D18018. Great big in person hugs or even virtual hugs are always nice to give to give to someone or something that you love.

Here is a close-up of the featured image.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 8-7/8″ x 3-7/8″ using Aqua cardstock. I die cut Crafts – Foil Designer Paper – 02-3080678 using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and PinkFresh Studio Essentials – Slim Stitched Rectangle Die Set. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough, I inked all around the edges of the card and die cut. Then I inked the front of the die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers, and Speckled Egg using Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was applied last at the bottom of the panel to represent grass. I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the die cut and added it to the base card.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it in with Copic markers. The coloured image was fussy cut out and a black marker was used to go around all of the edges. This was then applied directly to the patterned paper using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To create the “Sending Big Hugs” sentiment, I first took an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of black cardstock and cut it at the 4.25″ mark. Then I ran both pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I find this makes it much simpler than trying to add glue to each piece. Once this was done, using my Cuttlebug, I die cut the black cardstock using Lawn Fawn – “Sending Big Hugs” die 6 times. Then I did it 1 more time using Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Ombre Pastel after I had run it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I cut around the word “Big” to make it stand out.

I peeled off the sticker from the back of each of them and applied each layer on top of each other to create an embossed image. Then I added the sparkly “Big” as a last layer. I applied this to the patterned paper at the top of the card. Lastly, If felt something was missing, so I added some Stickles – Aqua all around the edges of the large rectangle die cut.

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.

Feel Good!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Having You Around – D19078 for the main image and sentiment. There’s nothing like the love between a boy and his faithful companion. They become best friends as they both grow older together!!!

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I also cut a panel the same size out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I used this to create my background using stencils I created to make clouds by Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (D-05-01) and inks listed below by Tim Holtz. Copic markers were used to colour in the water and I used My Favourite Things – Slimline Grassy Edges Stencil as a guide for the grass on the bottom of the card. Using my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink, I stamped the sentiment and then embossed the ink with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I used double-sided tape and attached my background panel to the base card.

Using my Cuttlebug and dies from Studio Light – Wonderful Autumn, I cut the trees and landscape out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Copic markers, I coloured these in as well. Then I layered them on top of each other and used glue to adhere them to the coloured background.

Next, using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured it in with Copic markers. I fussy cut around the image by hand and used a black marker to go around all of the edges. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the image and it was placed on top of the background to finish off the card.

Birthday Celebration!!


Today, I’m sharing a miniature birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Meow Meow 01 – D20013 for the main image and for the sentiments Birthday 07 – DCS17058 and Birthday 08 – DCS17059. I always wanted to try this type of miniature card! I just love the way you get the 3-D effect when you open the card.  So much fun. LOL!

Inside the card:

To make this card I used Lawn Fawn – Centre Picture Window Card to create the base card out of Hot Pink cardstock. The same dies were also used to create the centre pieces and banner using Your Next Stamp Designer Paper Pad – Birthday Girl. The same paper was also used to create the background on the card, front panel and side panels using Lawn Fawn – Centre Picture Window Card Add-On dies. Your Next Stamp – Mini Balloon Trio Die Set was used to die cut the floating balloons and then I tied some black thread to the base of the balloons. I cut 3 small pieces of clear plastic about a 1/4″ wide and attached the double-sided tape to the back of the balloon and at the base of the plastic as well to be used later.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and also the sentiments onto the patterned pieces. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it.

I assembled the card using double-sided tape for each of the panels and centre pieces. I attached the balloons by putting 2 behind the presents and 1 from the top centre piece. Lastly, I added a little bit of double-sided tape to the bottom of the coloured image and attached it to the front of the main centre piece. For the sentiment on the front panel, I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber and then popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added 2 balloons and used a black marker to create the tails for the balloons.

Miss You!!


Today, I’m sharing a slim-line card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Meow Meow 04 – D20016 for the main image and for the sentiment Just A Note To Say – DCS17038Dreamerland Crafts. Love this new set and I as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a card to show how a lot of us are feeling right now during these Covid times missing family and friends.

To make this card I used a base card of 7″ x 8.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored it at 3.25″.  Next, using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Marquee Die, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.  Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped all of the images onto the shaped die cuts and coloured them in with Copic markers.

The frame die cut was coloured using Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. The sentiments were stamped and embossed onto black cardstock using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat set using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. My cutter was used to cut the stamped sentiments into small strips. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of each of the sentiments.

To assemble the card, I first turned the die cuts upside down and used a little bit of Scotch Tape on the back side to keep the inserts in place. Then, I applied double-sided tape across the entire back and attached it directly to the card base. I attached each of the sentiments and finished off the card with Crafts – Rhinestone Stickers.

Love Lifts Me Up!!


Today, I’m sharing an inspirational slider card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Your Love Lifts Me Up – D20001. Love this stamp and image for lifting someone’s spirit up.

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5 x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background to be the same size using Asuka Studio – Sparkly Sky. I really love this paper. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured them in with Copic markers. Then, I fussy cut around it leaving a small white border.

I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. The little cloud was die cut with my Cuttlebug and Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD002 – Sky. Then I used a Picket Fence – Blending Brush that still had some blue ink on it from my last project to give it some colour. I cut a small strip just over a .5″ wide and about 4″ long to be a pull tab. I die cut a circle out of the top background paper with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles and then glued the piece that I cut onto the pull tab. Using 2 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I created the path on the back of the background and added some tape where I wanted the tab to stop. I glued 2 small magnets to the back of the cloud and also to the pull tab. (4 in total). Then I used an embossing pillow against the taped sides and over the magnets so that it would glide easier. I added some more double-sided tape to the remainder of the back of the background and then attached it to the card.

Purr-fect Day!!


Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Meow Meow 03 – D20015. This little kitten is having an amazing day, getting up early, playing, relaxing and then saying her prayers for the next day to be the same all over again. If we could all live the life of a spoiled kitten, life would be amazing! LOL!

To make this card I used a base card of 6.5″ x 8.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored it at 3.25″.  Next, using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Pillows Die, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and Recollections – Petite Floral – Double Sided paper.  Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped all of the images onto the various shaes and coloured them in with Copic markers. I created the sentiment using a ruler and Pigma Micron 03 black marker.

To assemble the card, I applied glue to the back of the patterned paper and attached it directly to the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry was used to ink around all of the outside and inside edges of the die cut. For all of the images and sentiment, I first ran them through my Xyron Creative Station to turn them into stickers. Also, this would give me full coverage to lay them flat. I inserted each of them into their respective places of the die cut.

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.

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

When You Love Someone!


Today, I’m sharing a Valentine’s card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called When You Love Someone – D20005. I just love this adorable couple. This image could also be used for an Anniversary card too!

To make this card I used a base card of 6″ x 6″ using AC White cardstock. I added the base background using the paper from Stampin’ Up! – Have a Cuppa with double-sided tape. Then, I die-cut 4 hearts using my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Worn Lipstick and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough were used to colour around the edges of the card and also all of the hearts.

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. Then I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI. I used Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool onto the smallest heart.

To assemble the card, the largest heart was attached directly to the base background using glue. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the backs of the remaining hearts and coloured image and then layered them on top of each other. To complete the card, I added in some hearts from Jot – Jewel Stickers.

Happiness


Hi Everyone! It’s the new year and it’s never too early to start making your Christmas cards. Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card from Dreamerland Crafts new Christmas release called Happiness Is Time Spent With A Good Friend – D20009.

To create this card, I first stamped my images using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.  The images were coloured in with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut around them and went around the edges with a black marker and set them aside.

Next, I worked on the background. I cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to the size of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I created the sky using the Tim Holtz inks listed below and then added in some snow using Stamperi – Glamour Paste – Sparkling White and sprinkling on some Martha Stewart Crafts – Crystal Fine Glitter while it was still wet. I then set this aside to dry. Once the paste was dry, I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink. The sentiment was embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

The bench was die cut using Joy Crafts – Floral Flourishes – 6002/0191, my Cutttlebug and Tim Holtz – Idea-ology – Christmas paper. Shadows were added in using T5 Copic Marker. I created a base card using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to the size of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I added double-sided tape to the coloured background and adhered it directly to the base. Using double-sided tape, I added the bench to the background. I popped up the images on the bench using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The snow and stars were added in using a combination of Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Sequins was added from some mixed sparkles I had.

To finish off the card, I added in some Cosmic Shimmer – Fluffy Puff around the bottom of each of the legs of the bench and also onto the trim of the girl’s cape, kitten’s cape and pompom. Lastly, I added some Stickles – Diamond onto the snow and the girl’s cape for added texture.

Wish You A Merry Christmas


Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card from Dreamerland Crafts new Christmas release called We Wish You A Merry Christmas – D20012. This card features a little kitten helping his friend celebrate the joy of Christmas giving.

To create this card, I first die-cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Creative Expressions – Festive Frames – Snowball. I separated the 2 pieces of the die-cut and using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black, I stamped the image onto the paper and  coloured it in with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment using 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. Once this was done, I added all of the snowflakes in the sky using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and also Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. For the snow on the ground, I used a mixture of Nuvo Glitter Accents – Fresh Snowfall and Stickles – Crystal. This was then set aside for a few hours to dry.

For the frame, I used Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish – Summer Sky. It was my first time using this polish and I just love how it turned out. Once the snow on the image was dry, I flipped the 2 die-cuts over and attached them back together using some clear tape on the back.

The card was now ready to assemble. For the card base I used The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 4.25″ x 5.5″. I added some double-sided tape and some glue to the backing of the finished frame and image and attached it directly to the card base.

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.

Wishing You The Best


Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card by Dreamerland Crafts using their stamp set called Wishing You and Your Family – D19069. I decided to make the scene a snowy night, because when we were little, we used to go at dusk to pick up out our new tree. It was always so much fun!

 

To make this card, I cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. 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 over top of the main image. To create my background I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Dusty Concord inks. Once they were all blended and I was satisfied with the look, I spritzed some water on top and then placed some paper towel over top to pick up some of the droplets.

I removed the mask and proceeded to colour in the main image with Copic markers. 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 #8 Pen and Stickles – Cool Mint to the little lady’s hat and scarf. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel was applied with a spatula along the bottom of the card to create some sparkling snow. I set the card aside to let the glitter dry for a few hours.

Once everything was dry, I attached it to a white base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper with double-sided tape.

Reading Away The Afternoon!


Today, I’m featuring a CAS card I made using Reading Away The Afternoon – D19043  from Dreamerland Crafts.  These 2 little friends are enjoying a wonderful day just relaxing and sharing time together! There’s nothing like holding a real book in your hands. I know that today there a lot of e-books, but I’m old fashioned and still love to sit back and relax and hold onto a real book. How about yourself? Do you prefer a real book or e-books?

To make this card I used a white base card from “Studio g” of 5″ x 5″. The sentiment was stamped directly to the base using my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Reading Lexi stamp. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

The background and image were die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies. I adhered the larger die cut directly to the base using double-sided tape.

I stamped the image onto the smaller die-cut and then stamped it again on some Post-it note to create a mask. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used along with stencils I created from Avery Elle – Pierced Cloud Die. Then the grass was added in. To create texture on the grass, I used some rubbing alcohol and a piece of old rag with some ridges on it.

Once the background was completed, I coloured in the main image with Copic markers. The grass had also been coloured in with the same markers. The image was then popped up onto the base using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Dreams Take Flight!!


Today, I’m featuring a card I made using Embrace Your Dream – D19039  from Dreamerland Crafts. My dad always dreamed of flying and he would build all kinds of model airplanes. Then one day he decided to build a real plane with the assistance of his brother and a friend. It took them a long time, but in the end it was a beautiful plane and the best part was that we were all taken for rides in it. It’s an experience we will never forget. So just as my dad followed his dreams, he taught us all to follow our dreams as well. If you dream about something long enough, eventually it will become a reality for you. So never be afraid to follow your dreams.

 

To make this card I used a white base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. The background was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die Layers – MCT-D274 and my Cuttlebug. The paper is from Doodlebug Design Inc. – I Love Travel. Once die cut, the edges were inked around using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. I also used this colour to do the clouds in the sky on the image. I adhered the background to the base using glue so that I could move it around to fit better.

The sentiment was stamped using my MISTI, VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and the stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie – Sky’s The Limit. The powder was then heat embossed with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. It was die cut using My Creative Time – Sentiment Label Dies.

The image was die cut using My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The circle behind the main image was die cut with My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles MCT-D136 from black cardstock. I coloured in the entire image with Copic markers and then created a mask. I added in the clouds and used a small piece of old rag and some rubbing alcohol to create some texture in the grass.

To assemble the card, I ran the main image through Xyron Creative Station to make like a sticker and so that it would lay completely flat on the black circle. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was used to pop up the main image and sentiment to complete the card.

Saying Hi!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS 19093 (Dreamerland Crafts) for the images and sentiment that I used to create this little scene. I just love how you can used these little stamps to create a variety of scenes. To colour my card this week, I thought I would try using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I normally colour with Copic markers, so this was a bit of a challenge for me.

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″ by Hot Buy – Recollections – Watercolour Solids. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the background paper using my MISTI, VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. The powder was then heat embossed with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

Strathmore – Watercolor Paper – 140 lb. was die cut using my Cuttlebug and dies from My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. For the images, I used my MISTI and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Wicked Black Ink.  I created a mask of the bear’s head using some Post-it Note paper and set it aside. To create the scene it was done in stages. First the bear and the little flower pots were stamped. Then the mask created earlier was put overtop of the little bear as show below. The poles, clothesline and grass were then stamped next.

Lastly, the T-Shirts, birds and clouds were stamped. Once this was completed, the mask for the bear was removed. The images were coloured in with the colour recipe listed below and Sakura Glaze – Black was used for all of the little eyes. Once the colouring was all completed, the finished scene was mounted directly to the base with 2-sided tape. Kraftin’ Kimmie – Lovely Dots were added to put a finishing touch on the card.
