Big Hugs!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using this super adorable image from Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Big Hug – D19025. Great big in person hugs or even virtual hugs are always nice to have or to give to someone or something that you love. Have you hugged someone today?

To make this card I created a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. With Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush and Lawn Fawn – Cloudy Stencil, I created the clouds. Then, using a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Bundled Sage, a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush and a mixture of Lawn Fawn – Clippings – Simple Hillside Stencils and Lawn Fawn – Clippings – Slimline Grassy Hillside Stencils, I created the grass. With my Anna Griffin Empress Die-Cutting Mini Machine, Lawn Fawn – Giant Sending Big Hugs was die cut twice using Recollections – Black cardstock. Liquid glue was used to fuse the 2 pieces together. I applied glue to the back of the combined pieces and attached it directly to the base of the 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. Ranger Inkssentials – Glossy Accents was added to the glasses. The coloured image was fussy cut with scissors leaving a slim white border around it. This was then applied directly to the base card using U-Line – double-sided tape.

Hi everyone…today we are having a sponsor day over at the Passionate Paper Creations & Friends FB group site with Joy Clair Designs!! Today I’m using this adorable Santa image and sentiment from Joy Clair Designs called Love Santa Digital Stamps. Thank you Joy Clair Designs for sponsoring us.

I printed out the image and sentiment using HP High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut. The sentiment was die cut with my Cuttlebug and Whimsy Stamps – Quick Strips Die Set – WSD330.

For the base card, I used AC Cardstock – White and cut it and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. For the background, I applied Craft Consortium – Made By Elves (6″ x 6″) to the base using double-sided tape. A Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint was used to go around the edges of the card and also around the sentiment. I applied some Ranger Inkssentials – Glossy Accents on top of the snow to make it look like an icy pond and applied some Stickles – Crystal around the edges. Once it was dried, I popped up the image and sentiment onto the background using U-line double sided tape to complete the card.

Mudzie Goes Skating!


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday and this week I’m back to share a card that I made using Skating Mudzie – R064 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with Frozen Skating Pond – S074 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for my background and then finished off with the sentiment Sparkle In Ice – H156 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).

This card brought back memories of skating on the Ottawa Canal when I was younger whenever we went to visit our grandparents and my mom’s side of the family. We would skate for hours, enjoying Beaver Tails along the way (Beaver Tails are a fried dough pastry, stretched to look a beaver’s tail with added yummy toppings of your choice. They are sooooooo good! LOL!)

I grew up in Northern Ontario and we couldn’t wait to get home from school to lace up our skates and go across the street to the rink to skate. Like Starbuck’s, we had rink on practically every corner and the rinks were always full of children playing hockey or rink games. Our parents would have to fight with us to go inside. We would go in for supper and then be right back out on the ice again.

To make this card, I first coloured the ice with a mixture of blue Copic colours. Then I covered the whole area with Ranger Inkssentials – Glossy Accents and let it sit overnight to dry. The next day, I finished colouring in the trees, leaving the snow drifts white. I also coloured in the sky and then used various sizes of Gelly Roll Sakura Pens to create the snow.

Lastly, I completed the background snow using some BV20, C0 and Colorless Blender and then to add some sparkle, I spread glue randomly over the snowy areas and tree tops and added glitter.

I coloured in the moose and fussy cut around him and then popped him up as well as the background onto the card. I thought it would be fun to do his socks in the traditional “Roots” fashion. I also used the Gelly Roll pen to create some movement on the ice below the moose.

For the sentiment, I wanted it to have some sparkle like the snow. To do this, I inked the sentiment on white paper and then used some Sookwang double-sided tape to cover it. I peeled off the tape and then sprinkled Crystal Glitter Ritz – Warm Highlight – Transparent Ultra Fine Glitter and burnished it with my finger. (Rubbing it until it was smooth). I added some double-sided pop-up tape and added it to my card to finish it off.

Lastly, I added some green ribbon and some pop-dots for the last finishing touches.
