Lee Holland Art has been sponsoring us throughout the month of November at  Passionate Paper Creations & Friends FB group site!! Today, I’m featuring this adorable dragon image from Lee Holland Art called Reindeer Antlers Christmas Dragon. Thank you Lee Holland Art for sponsoring us and having such amazing fun designs to choose from. I love all of your little dragons.

 

For the base card, I used AC Cardstock – White and cut it and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. For the background, I cut Creative Memories – Mermaid Cove Designer Paper to the same size as the base card. The image using HP High Quality Grayscale was printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies, the printed image and Hot Buy – Recollections Ombre Brights Paper were both die cut. The sentiment was stamped using my Misti, VersaMark Ink and sentiment stamps from Lawn Fawn – “Offset Sayings – Christmas” and Lawn Fawn “Winter Skies”. Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder was applied to the stamped sentiments and then heat set with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

I cut the sentiment down to be 3-3/8″ x 1-2/8″ and then used W R Memory Keepers – Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to create .25″ corners. Using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I went around all of the edges of the cuts with the exception of the image die cut. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow in the sky and a combination of Stickles – Crystal, Stickles – Waterfall and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff which was applied prior to the Stickles being added.

The card was now ready to be assembled. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the coloured image and cut frame to pop them up. I doubled up the tape for behind the sentiment. The base paper was applied directly to the card base using double-sided tape. I peeled off the tape from the backings of the elements and popped them all up onto the base card to finish it off.

Believe!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Believe Snowman – TFL006 and Snow Globe – ULF002 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and North Pole Greetings – GLL005 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. It’s time to start believing the magic of Christmas and the joy that it brings to everyone!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base using AC Cardstock – White cut and folded to 6″ x 6″. The snowflake background is from Lawn Fawn – Let It Shine Snowflakes (6″ x 6″) paper pad. I applied this directly to the base using double-sided tape.

Using Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles and my Cuttlebug, I die cut a 3.75″ circle from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the snowman scene image onto it. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some snow to the sky and snowman’s arms using a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Sakura Glaze – Black was added to the eyes of the snowman and birds and the snowman’s mouth. With a Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear, I added some ink to the top of the Snowman’s hat, sign, icicles, tops of the birdhouses and snow drifts and then heat embossed everything with WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter and a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Stickles – Diamond was added as an extra layer to the snow and Wink of Stella – Clear was applied over all the snowman. This was then set aside to dry.

With my MISTI and Memento – Summer Sky ink I stamped the top part of the globe onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper. I cleaned off the stamp and this time, I used some Post-it Notes to hide the background inside the globe and inked the braided border for both the top and bottom of the base with Versamark ink. I applied Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing powder and heat embossed it using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. With my globe image still in place on my MISTI, I removed the snowglobe stamp and added the sentiment turning up both ends of the stamp slightly to give the words some curvature. The sentiment was stamped using Versamark ink and then Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing powder was applied to it and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The base was then coloured in using my Copic markers and a Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear pen was used to colour in the white areas to give it some glitter. I also added some of this pen to the tops of the snowman’s arms. With my scissors, I fussy cut around the entire snow globe.

The card was now ready to assemble. I attached 3M double-side tape to pop up the snow globe onto the main background and then added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the circle and centred it on the top part of the globe. Lastly, to finish off the card, I applied some Nuvo Crystal Drops – Caribbean Ocean, Violet Galaxy and Nuvo Glitter Drops – Sherbert Shimmer to some of the snowflakes on the base card.

Butterflies!!


Sharing a few cards I made today using Butterfly Whimsy – 2010 Elusive Images Stamp and a mixture of Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks and Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift Ink. I thought it would be fun to play with this technique. I used a little too much of the Alcohol inks and therefore I embossed the colourful card with Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder.


To make my cards, I first started out with some Yupo paper, the alcohol inks listed below, a blending tool and some blending solution. I kept adding colour and daubing the paper until I was satisfied with the background. I arranged the stamps in my MISTI and then applied some Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift-Ink to the stamps and stamped it onto the coloured Yupo paper. I removed this and then immediately placed my Hammermill paper which was cut to the same size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ into the MISTI in the same position and pressed down with the same stamps. This gave me my second card.

I added some purple spatters to the second card and then die cut both cards using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and then placed it onto The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 4.25″ x 5.5″ using double-sided tape. To finish off the card, I used some Kraftin’ Kimmie Festive Dots.

To finish off the first card, I used a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint was used to ink around the edges of the base card and then I applied double-sided tape to the back of the Yupo paper and applied it directly to the base.

Here are the 2 finished cards, side by side.

Card Recipe:

Stamps and Sentiment: Butterfly Whimsy – 2010 Elusive Images

Inks: Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift, VersaMark

Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks: Wild Plum, Purple Twilight, Raspberry, Sunset Orange, Sail Boat Blue, Stream, Blending Solution

Paper: Tim Holtz® Alcohol Ink Yupo® Cardstock, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb., The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 4.25″ x 5.5″

Embossing Powder: Ranger Super Fine Gold

Dies: My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers

Miscellaneous: Kraftin’ Kimmie Festive Dots, Cuttlebug, Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint, Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool

 Hope you like it and have a great week!

Nutcracker – Seasons Greetings!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring Nutcracker – M104 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) paired with the sentiment Seasons Greetings – F300A (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). It’s always fun to use Nutcrackers at Christmas time, that is if your parents let you play with them? LOL! Do you use your nutcrackers if you have one or are they strictly for decoration?

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Then I die cut the image using Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Ovals and my Cuttlebug. The image was then coloured in with Copic Markers.

I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark Ink and then embossed it with Ranger – Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder. This was then heated using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.  I used the same die cuts to cut the remaining ovals. I used PhotoPlay – Christmas Memories for the main background paper and cut it to 6″ x 6″. I edged around the main background, background patterned oval and sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn. To create the ribbon, I used some scrap red cardstock, Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629 – Gold and white cardstock. For the Sparkling stickers, I first attached the paper to some white cardstock to give it more stability. Once the pieces for the ribbons were created, I ran all of them through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make it easier to adhere the layers to each other.

The card was now ready to assemble, I attached the main background to a card base of 6″ x 6″. I layered all of the rectangles to create my ribbon and also added the sentiment to this ribbon as well. I then placed this directly onto the base card. The ovals were all popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Nutcracker – M104 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Seasons Greetings – F300A (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, VersaMark, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn

Gnome – Merry Christmas!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m featuring a Christmas card I made using the image Flying Gnome – TLF008 and sentiment Sm Christmas Script – F051 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).  I just love colouring these adorable little gnomes. Also, it’s always good to make Christmas cards a little at a time throughout the year so that you are not rushing to get them all done in December. LOL! Have you started making your Christmas cards yet this year?

To create the card this week, I first used the die cut from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background – CED3049 to cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug. I stamped the main image and then coloured it with Copic Markers. I started off doing the sky first as I didn’t want any of the Reds smearing into it. (This happens sometimes if you are not careful.) Once the image was all coloured in, I used Sakura Glaze – Black and Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to increase the intensity of the eye on the bird. I outlined the entire image with Pigma Micron 03 black marker to make it stand out more against the sky. Lastly, I used a mixture of Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow and stars in the sky.

For the base of the card, I began with a standard white card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I cut another piece of white cardstock the same size and applied the red shimmer topping on it using Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. I used the same die cut listed above to cut out the intricate design using my Cuttlebug and the gold paper from Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper. I had put the gold paper through my Xyron Creative Station before I die cut it. This made it easier to just peel and stick onto the base.

For the sentiment, I die cut some spare red cardstock using Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies. Using my MISTI and VersaMark ink, I stamped the sentiment onto the die cut and embossed it using Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder. This was heated with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The image and the sentiment were both popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card.

Stamp: Flying Gnome – TLF008 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Sm Christmas Script – F051 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, VersaMark

Chinese New Year 2018 – Year of the Dog


Hi There,

Sharing a card that I made for all of my Chinese friends and co-workers this year. Unfortunately, the camera didn’t co-operate with me very well for taking the pictures of the card!!! I can see myself in the reflection!!! LOL!

 

For the front I used my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space to cut out the images for the sentiments. Compliments of CraftDirect free SVG file.

The dog is from Cricut Cartridge – A Quilted Christmas. I just trimmed off the ball in Cricut Design Space using the Slice tool before executing the actual cut using my Cricut Explore.

The lanterns were done using Craftin Desert Divas – Dragon Festival clear stamps, Versa Mark ink and Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder.

On the inside of the card, I used Craftin Desert Divas – Dragon Festival clear stamps, Versa Mark ink and Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder for the dragon and Recollections Valentine’s Day Clear Stamps and Die.

Sentiments – Craftin Desert Divas – Dragon Festival stamp set.

Happy Chinese New Year Everyone! Wishing you all joy, luck, good fortune and good health!!

Year of the Rooster – 2017

To create this card I imported the image from: Cricut Cartridge – Wall Decor and More: Rooster #M4683B and  #M41A33.

I used a mixture of stamps from Jaded Blossom (Chinese New Year) and Craftin Desert Diva’s (Dragon Festival) for the front and inside of the card.

Stamped using Versamark and Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder.
