Delivering Candy Angel!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Polkadoodles stamp called Delivering Candy – Winnie Angel. It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only a few days away. This little Christmas angel is all set to make someone’s Christmas very special.

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was cut to the same size and attached to the base card using double-sided tape. I imported the image into Microsoft Word and then printed it out using High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. This stops the ink from smudging when you colour the image with your markers.

With my Cuttlebug, I die-cut the image and Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock using Penny Black Creative Dies – Antique Frame. U-Line double-sided tape was attached to the larger die-cut and it was popped up onto the centre of the card. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then added Stickles – Diamond to the snow on the bottom. With a UNIPosca PC-3M White marker, I created the snow in the sky. Wink of Stella – Clear was applied to the wings and the halo. Once the Stickles dried, I adhered the coloured image layer to the card using U-Line double-sided tape as well.

Let Your Voice Sing!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Let Your Voice Sing – D15205 for the main image and Sentiment – Holiday Sentiments 003 – DS163003. Growing up we always had so much fun gathering with friends and family and singing Christmas carols.

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, I embossed the music design with a Cuttlebug – ProvoCraft – Allegro embossing folder. I cut it down to the size of 5.25″ x 4″ and adhered it directly to the base card.

Utilizing the Cuttlebug again and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock, the die-cut for the image was cut out with Spellbinders – Elegant Ovals. With a MISTI, the main image was stamped onto the die cut. It was coloured in and then a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen was used to colour in the fancy border surrounding the image. The sentiment was stamped with my MISTI and VersaMark ink. Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder was applied to the ink and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I fussy cut around the sentiment. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the sentiment and coloured image and they were both popped up onto the card. To finish the card off, I applied Dress It Up – Glitter Holly buttons with liquid glue from their Holiday Collection.

Wild Flowers – Just A Note


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital DesignMilk Can – Wildflowers from the October 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “You make it beautiful” and “Some people, like flowers, just give pleasure by being“.

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.  Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut the printed image and sentiment. With the Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Rectangle Die Set and my Cuttlebug, I die cut Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock. With Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass and a finger dauber, the edges of the base card were inked all around. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the die cut and it was popped up onto the base card.

The image was coloured in with Copic markers. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the coloured image and it was popped up onto gold die cut. YNS – Cosmic Crush Gumdrops were added to complete the card.

Welcome The New Couple!!


Today, I’m sharing a Wedding card that I made for my cousin who recently got married using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Welcome The New Couple – D18017 We wish them a very long and happy marriage as they begin their new journey together as one.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Oval. The image was then stamped onto this die cut using my MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and Welcome The New Couple – D18017 – Dreamerland Crafts stamp. I coloured in the image using copic markers and created the background. For the sentiment, I first ran all of the pieces of cardstock through my Xyron Create a Sticker. Then, using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and dies from PaperCrafter Today – 15 Die Cut Sentiment Set, I die cut the “Congratulations” 2 times from plain white cardstock and 1 time from Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock. I then pieced them all together to give an embossing effect. I applied U-Line double-side tape to the back of the coloured image and popped it up on top of the base card. Lastly, I attached the sentiment to complete the card.

Thank You!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Thank You card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Gladiolas – TDG038 for the image. We are super excited to re-release 9 previously retired images today. This is the first image of many more to come!

It’s spring and my husband is busy in his garden, planting some beautiful flowers. Every year, he asks me what colours I would like to have in the garden and then he puts together a gorgeous display. Thank goodness he is taking care of them, because a green thumb is certainly something I was not blessed with. 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 Crafter’s Consortium – The Essential Craft Papers – Ink Drops – Ocean to be the same size as the base and adhered it with double-sided tape. I cut 2 .5″ strips of Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock and adhered a piece on each side of the card using glue. I die cut the words “Thank You” using the same Matte Gold foil cardstock, PaperCrafter Today – 15 Die Cut Sentiment Set and my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine. I ran the words through my Xyron Create a Sticker and set them to the side.

The image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured in with Copic Markers. I fussy cut around the image and added some U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it. The images was then popped up onto card. I added the words “Thank You” that I had turned into stickers earlier to complete the card.

A bond between a child and their mother is something so special and rare! Happy Mother’s Day to all of you special ladies out there and especially to my mom whom we all love dearly!

To make this card I used a base of 6″ x 6″ using AC White Cardstock cardstock. Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock was cut to the same size as the base and adhered with double-sided tape. P13 – Hello Spring was cut to 5.75″ x 5.75″ and the edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Saltwater Taffy. This was popped up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and PinkFresh Studio Essentials – Blanket Stitched Oval die, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The main image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image using copic markers and created the background. Once the background was completed, I dipped a Q-tip into some Rubbing Alcohol ink and dotted it all over the background. Then using a Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear, I went around the oval where the pattern was and applied Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder. then heated it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the card. For the sentiment, I used the stamps from Die Cutting Essentials Magazine – Issue 75 – Geo Floral Wreath Dies & Stamps. Using my MISTI, Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail, I embossed the sentiment onto a scrap piece of green cardstock. I fussy cut around the sentiment and applied U-Line double-side tape to pop it up at the bottom of the card.

Somebunny Loves You!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Bunny Blossoms – TDG024 for the image and Some Bunny – FDG032 for the sentiment. I just love this super adorable little bunny taking time to smell the flowers. Spring is here, but the winter snow keeps playing tricks on us still. LOL! We just had another snow storm the other day. I thought April was supposed to bring Spring showers, not Spring snow!!!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of AC Cardstock – White, cut and scored to be 6″ x 6″. I cut the Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock background paper to the size of 6″ x 6″ and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Crafts Designer Paper – 02-3093268 was cut to the size of 5.75″ x 5.75″ and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. I applied U-Line double-double sided tape and popped the paper onto the gold backing. Using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies, I die cut another square from Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I popped up the gold square onto the bunny background and stamped the main image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black.

The image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I though I’d go out of my comfort zone this week to create this sky with a variety of different colours. I thought it still needed something more so I added in some clouds using a PrimaColor Pencil – White. I also added in some extra fur with PrimaColor Pencil – Beige. Once, I was satisfied with the sky, I added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it and it too was popped up onto the card. The sentiment was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. I fussy cut around it and then applied it to a small piece of Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock using repositionable tape. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image with a slight border. I coloured around the circle stamped image with RV000 and then used a black marker to go all around the edges. I applied U-Line double-sided tape and popped it up onto the gold die-cut. Lastly, 2 layers of the U-Line double-sided tape were applied to the right side only of the sentiment and glue to the left and attached it to the base coloured paper to finish off the card.
