Hoppy Easter!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a couple of images that I combined from Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Sending Love Flowers – D18002 and from their Mix and Match Set Mailbox and Wall – M18301. I thought this would make a great combo for a cheerful Easter card.

I made this card in stages. First I die-cut a 5″ x 5″ square out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Then I stamped all of the images onto Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper. Using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI, I stamped the Girl, bunnies and Bird House first. Then added the mask over top of them.

For the next stage, I stamped the wall. Then I added the mask over top of it as well.

Lastly, I stamped the foliage above the wall with Memento – Bamboo Leaves ink, removed all of the masks and then coloured in the entire image.

Once the image was coloured in, I added the sentiment and then mounted it onto the front of white cardstock cut to 5″ x 5″.

Aged to Perfection!!!


Sharing a card today that I made using Big Birthday Wishes – SC0794 (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 5.5″. 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.

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.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Mix and Match Clear Stamps (DC19095) (Dreamerland Crafts)

Inks: Versa Fine – Onyx Black, Versa Mark, (Sky Base): Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot

Super Tall Cake!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps  Super Tall Cake – D19017 for the main image and Birthday Sentiments – Set 002 (DS163007) for the sentiment!  This adorable little bear made a cake for someone very special! Hmmm! I wonder who that could be. LOL!

To make the card I first die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with Craftin Desert Diva’s – Inside Scalloped Squares. Then using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the paper. I coloured in the image using Copic markers.

Next I cut out used some tape to inlay the image back into the frame that I had previously die cut to make it one piece again. I also die cut the yellow and aqua paper with the same die cut twice. Then I used the yellow to be the inlay for the aqua frame and taped it back together on the reverse. After that, I used my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black to apply the sentiment. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heated up using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

Next, I edged around the borders of both frames with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. I ran the base frame through Xyron Creative Station to make it into a sticker and so that the entire frame would lay flat. I mounted this onto 5″ x 5″ white cardstock. Then I popped up the smaller frame and image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing Dreamerland Craft Stamps Coordinating Die & Clear Stamp Package (D172906) for Character Stamp D172006 Love The Music From My Guitar and Love The Music From My Guitar – D172006! This little boy loves his guitar and all of the animals love his music.

To make his card, I stamped all of the images using my MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in all of the images using Copic markers and then used my Cuttlebug and all of the die cuts from Coordinating Die & Clear Stamp Package (D172906) for Character Stamp D172006 Love The Music From My Guitar (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps). I also die cut the sentiment at the same time and stamped it with Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then heat embossed it using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder..

I was now ready to do the background. To achieve this I cut several die cuts using Monte Mart A4 Watercolour Book paper, Lawn Cuts – Simple Stitched Hillside Borders – Lawn Fawn and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214).

For the sky I used several Tim Holtz Blue inks in various shades listed below using a stencil that I had created from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie. For the grass I used various shades of Tim Holtz green inks – (see below).

I ran all of the die cuts and the back 2 layers of grass through Xyron Creative Station. Then I set them all aside.

I was now ready to assemble my card. I layered the first 2 die cuts onto the main die cut and then popped up the bottom grass cut with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I then added on the characters that I made stickers out of for easy assembly. I popped up the upper half of the little dog with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Once the scene was completed I mounted it onto 5.25″ x 4.25″ white cardstock.

Hello My Friend


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Dreamerland released some brand new stamps in October 2019 and today, I’m sharing Hello My Friend (D19080) from the October Character release!

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copic markers. Once it was all coloured, I fussy cut around it leaving a small white border. I then added the final touch on the pom-poms with Stickles Pink and Stickles Aqua.

I used a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ white card for my base. I then cut the patterned paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe at 5-1/4″ x 4″ , inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough and mounted it onto the white base.

For the ovals I used the die cuts from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies, to create the various layers. I used the same paper pad to cut the small oval. Miscellaneous scrap paper that I had for the second oval and white for the last oval. I popped up the first 2 ovals using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the largest oval and then mounted the large oval directly onto the base. Then, I popped up the image using the same 2 sided tape on the top oval.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Cut around the sentiment and then mounted it onto card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

All edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough before mounting onto card.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card with you that I made using DCS19089 – Mix and Match Clear Stamp  (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the main image and sentiment and 2018 Christmas Trees & Houses – M18312 (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the trees in the background! I thought this little bear was just so adorable, so I thought I would make him pulling his little forest friend on a little walk through the forest!

I used the centre die cut from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background – CED3049 to cut out the area I wanted to stamp my image on. I used Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI to get a nice clean image. The first step was to stamp the bear, sled and bunny. Next I used Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and stamped the 3 images again. Next, I added the masked images over top of the images that were previously stamped on the base image.

The second step was to stamp in the trees. I wanted to give the impression that some trees were further back, so I inked the tree stamp with Memento – Bamboo Leaves and stamped once and then immediately again using the same stamp. I performed this several times across the background. Once all of the trees were in place, I removed the masking and was ready to colour in my images.

Before adding snow to the sky, I stamped on the sentiment using VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I added in the snow flakes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

The colours used for each character and the trees are listed below. The final step for the main image was to add in some sparkle on the trees and snow on the ground. For the glitter on the trees I used Quickie Glue and DecoArt Glamour Dust. For the snow below the trees, sled and bear, I used VersaMark ink and WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle and touches of Stickles – Diamond.

Lastly, I die cut the background frame using Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background. I added glue to the back of the die cut and mounted it on top of Crafts Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. Then I popped up the main image in the centre using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
