Play In The Puddles!!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Rain Gnome from the new July 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “There’s Always Room For You Under My Umbrella” and “If you want a rainbow, you’ve got to deal with a little rain”.

I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I fussy cut around the image and added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it. Using Tonic Studios Craft Perfect – Iridescent Mirror Card – Tidal Wave cardstock, I cut out 6 little droplets of water. Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Whimsy Stamps – Wavy Nested Frame Dies Set, I die cut the puddle out of the same paper. Just love how this paper looks like water. I ran the water pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then adhered them to Scrapbook.com – Jewels Smooth Cardstock. I popped the image on top of the main puddle. Once this was all done, I fussy cut around the image and water droplets and added U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of all of the pieces and set them aside.

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardsstock. I cut the background paper using Forever In Time – Splish Splash (SP344U) paper and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. I used my cutter to cut around the sentiment and then a corner rounder for the 4 corners. I applied some Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean around the edges with a sponge dauber and then added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it. I popped this up onto the base at the bottom of the card and then popped up the image and splash marks to finish off the card.

Rain or Shine!


Sharing a card I made today using Penny Black Stamps – Rain or Shine. My husband and I always celebrate the first day that we started going out together and also our wedding anniversary each year. Yesterday, marked 36 wonderful years together. We had bears on the top of our wedding cake, so I thought it would be great to make him a card with bears to celebrate our special day.

To make my card, I started out with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock to create a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug, I die cut a small rectangle into the front of the card. For the raindrops, I first applied some Post-It tape down the centre of the card and then applied Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass with a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. I placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Rainy Day Stencil over top of this blue section and this time I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. I removed the stencil and the Post-it Note tape and covered the centre where the blue colour ended. Using a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Squeezed Lemonade, I applied yellow to the entire right side of the card. Lastly, I placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Starburst Stencil over top and using the same brush, I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mustard Seed. I die cut the word “Happy” using My Creative Time – Happy Everything Stamp Set and Recollections – Black cardstock. Lastly, using a sentiment from the same stamp set, I stamped and heat embossed the word “Anniversary” using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Here is the inside of the card.

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I die cut it using Lawn Fawn – Zig Zag Square Stackables and coloured in the image with Copic markers. Using my MISTI again, I heat embossed the sentiment onto Recollections – Black cardstock using VersaMark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Gina K. Designs – Master Layouts – #9 was used to die cut the sentiment. I applied glue to the back of the image and sentiment and attached them both to the inside of the card.

Friends Together


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing an inspirational card that I made using Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS 19096 to create the little scenes and also for the sentiment. I wanted to show a variety of scenes that you could make with this cute set and so for the first time for me ever, I created this little flip card.

Panel 1 – Bears hugging in the rain.

Panel 2: The rain has stopped and there is a beautiful rainbow for the little couple.

Panel 3 – The sun has come out and is now beaming.

Panel 4: I just love this adorable sentiment and it finishes off the little story of the 2 little bears hugging each other through all of the different types of weather.

Here is the flip card in action.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. DCWV – Pocket Blossom was cut to the same size and using double-sided tape was attached to the base card. Then, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used to ink around all of the edges. I die cut X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and dies from Lawn Fawn – Flippin’ Awesome. I used the largest square of the die set in order to have more room to create the scenes. The larger square was die cut using Recollection – White paper using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The die-cut for the mechanism of the Flip Card was also from Lawn Fawn – Flippin’ Awesome. So easy to use. I love this die set.

I created a mask of the bears so that I could add in the different elements on each panel. All of the images were coloured in with Copic Markers. For the rain, Memento – Bahama Blue ink was used. For the sunbeams, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Summer Sunshine, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Yummy Yellow and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Starburst Stencil were used.

Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink was used to stamp the sentiment and then Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder was applied. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat up the embossing powder.

Once all of the panels were completed, I die cut the sparkly blue paper using Lawn Fawn – Flippin’ Awesome – Add-On dies. The flipping mechanism was then attached to the sparkling blue paper. This was then attached directly to the base of the card.

Rainy Day Smiles


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Mary Angel – Q020 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Rainy Rainy Day – H048 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. We are in for a lot of rain in the next little while here, but Mary is well prepared for it with her adorable little boots and is ready to play in the puddles. Did you love playing in the puddles with your rain boots when you were little too?

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 6″ x 6″. I used Forever in Time – Splish Splash paper for the background as I thought it went so well with this image. The background paper is double-sided and I loved how well it went together to frame the image and sentiment. I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured the image in with Copic Markers. Once it was coloured in, I fussy cut around it and used B01 to fill in all of the white space as it matched the background paper so well. For the sentiment, I thought it would be cute to turn it into an umbrella as well. To do this, I stamped the sentiment and then drew an umbrella shape around it. I used a scrap piece of copic paper and drew the handle for it and then coloured it and cut it out as well. To finish off the card, I popped up the image and the sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added some Ranger Inkssentials – Glossy Accents onto the water and droplets, Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear to the wings, Mary’s umbrella and pockets on the raincoat. Unfortunately, the glitter isn’t showing up in the picture.
