Sparkle All The Way!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Snowbear Friends – TDG009 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Sparkle – FDG011 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This month we are celebrating our new Woodland Winter Release at High Hopes Stamps.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the die cut and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and added in the snow in the sky with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I added in the tree decorations using a combination of Nuvo Crystal Drops: Red Berry, Dandelion Yellow and Carribean Dream. Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Silver and Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Gold were used to create stripes and colour in circles on the presents. Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff was applied to the brim of their hats and pom-poms and heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. A little bit of Stickles – Diamond was added onto top of the brims and pompoms to make them sparkly.  I added in the snow on the bottom using a spatula and Nuvo Glimmer Paste – Moonstone and let it dry. Once it was dry, I added in some Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff to give the snow a little more texture. This too, was heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I adhered the image to the base card using double-sided tape and Stickles – Diamond was added to the top and side of the sign to complete the card.

I added in the snow on the bottom with Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and Sprinkled some WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter on as well after using a Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear in spots. This too, was heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Lastly, I added in some Stickles – Diamond for snow as well. I love sparkle. LOL! Using double-sided tape, I adhered the finished scene to the base card. I rounded the sentiment with a 1/4″ rounder on the top and cut the 2 bottoms at a diagonal. Copic Marker R37 was used to go around the edges. I popped this onto the finished image using U-Line double-sided tape to complete the card.

Santa’s New Ride!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Flyin’ High Santa – T093 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Here Comes Santa Claus – G272 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Santa’s giving his reindeer a rest this year as he checks out his new ride. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the background paper from Creative Memories – Glacier Paper Pack to be the same size and applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. I took a small scrap of Recollections – Black cardstock and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker so that it would become a sticker. With my Cuttlebug and Joy Crafts – Lin & Len Design 1201/0027, I die cut the silhouette out of the black paper and then peeled off the backing and placed it directly to the bottom of the card. Stampendous – Snowflakes – Chunky White was sprinkled over top of the card and melted from the bottom of the card using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped both the image and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I cut the sentiment in half using my cutter and ran it through the Xyron Create a Sticker. I placed the sticker on top of some Recollections – Black cardstock and cut it again using my small cutting tool. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. With a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen, I coloured in the candy cane swirls on the airplane and small circles. Once it was dry, I used Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear to go over the big yellow gumdrop, the swirls on the propeller, the candy cane swirls, small circles on the plane and the star on the tree to add some glitter. For Santa’s cuffs, coat trim and hat, I used Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear and sprinkled on some WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter. I heated this with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and then repeated the process to give it more texture. For Santa’s pop pom, I applied a little bit of Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and then heat embossed it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

The Santa image and sentiment were both popped up onto the background using 3M double-sided tape to complete the card.

Birthday Presents and Cake!!


Sharing a birthday card that I made for a friend using a digital image from Polkadoodles called Cake Time Digi – Winnie Celebrations 2. I really love this awesome collection.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and then printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer using High Quality Grayscale. I found this to be the best setting as it doesn’t smudge when you colour. Next, I used Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Oval dies to die cut the image out. The image was coloured in with Copic markers.

Using Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones – 5.5″ x 4.25″ cardstock as the base. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. All of the edges of the card were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry.

3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the die cut and attached directly to the base. Lastly to finish off the card, I added some Crafts – Rhinestone Stickers.
