Moo-rry Christmas!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Chillin’ Charlie – TT049 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Moo-rry Christmas – FDG002 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas release is being celebrated this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base from Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 (Assorted Box of Cards). I cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Navy Blue paper to the size of 3-5/8″ x 4-5/8″. The 3.5″ x 4.5″ background was cut from Heartfelt Creations – Festive Winterscapes Collection. I inked around the edges of the base card and background image with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Faded Jeans. The sentiment was added to the base card using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI. The ink was embossed using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I applied the 2 cut pieces together using double-sided tape and then popped them onto the base using 3M  double-sided tape. I had some branches pre-punch from earlier from various green cardstock using my Martha Stuart – Branch punch. I applied liquid glue to the backs of each of the branches and applied them to the popped up background.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. For the hat trim and pop-pom, 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. The image was popped up onto the background using 3M double-sided tape and a few small Ranger Snowflakes were added. Lastly, I added some Stickles – Diamond to the snowflakes on the background and in the centres of the smaller snowflakes to complete my card.

Surfing Gabriel!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a masculine card using Surfing Gabriel – TT516 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and No Waves – FR011 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Gabriel is enjoying the waves and the bright skies. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up here so that I can start swimming again too!

To make my card this week, I die cut a square from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. A larger square was cut using Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies and spare blue cardstock. The image and sentiment were both stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then, I created a mask and put it over top of the coloured image and added in my clouds using various Tim Holtz inks listed below and Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (Used to create stencils). To create the spray on the waves, I mixed a little bit of FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint and Delta Ceramcoat – White paint and applied it to the coloured image using a 1/4″ H.J. Domed Dry Stipple brush. For a little extra sparkle, I added some DecoArt Glamour Dust while the paint was still wet.

Brother Scan and Cut was used to die-cut around the sentiment. Edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch. A second circle was die cut using Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles out of aqua cardstock and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers.

To assemble the card, I used Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 for the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used to ink around the edges of the card. The coloured image was glued to the larger square and the sentiment was glued to the larger circle. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was attached to the backs of the larger circle and square and attached to the base card. To finish it off, YNS Gumdrops were added.

Christmas Bells!!


Today, I’m sharing Holiday Bells from KLM Digital Designs November Release. The image comes with 3 different sentiments, “Merry Christmas”, which I’ve used on my card and also, “Season’s Greetings” and “Happy Holidays”.

To make the card, I printed out the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around the image. A black marker was used to go around all of the edges. The sentiment was printed out onto Recollections white paper and then fussy cut as well. Then I ran both the image and the sentiment through my Xyron Creative Station to make it easier to lay them down completely flat on the card base. For the card base I used Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 (Assorted Box of Cards).

Sending You Tidings


Today, I’m featuring a Christmas card by Dreamerland Crafts using their stamp set called Sending You Tidings – D19072. Growing up in the North, we used to get a lot of snow. I always love looking out the window and seeing the snow fall and how beautiful it looks on the houses and trees. Driving in it, not so much, but everything else about winter, I love. LOL!

To make this card, I cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the size of 4.75″ x 3.5″ using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers Dies. Then using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black, I stamped the image first onto the paper and then again on to Post-It Note to create a mask. I fussy cut around the mask and placed it to the side to use a little later. I then proceeded to colour in my image with Copic markers.

Once the colouring of the image was complete, I was ready to create the sky. To accomplish this, the mask that I had set aside earlier was placed over top of the coloured image. A mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks were then used: Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Dusty Concord inks. Once, the background was completed, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using my MISTI and VersaMark ink. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

I was now ready to add the final finishing touches. To do this, I added in the snowflakes and stars using Gelly Roll Sakura #10, #8 and #5 Pens. Stickles – Cool Mint was added to the little lady’s hat, pom-pom and coat cuffs. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel was applied with a spatula along the bottom of the card to create some sparkling snow and also to the top of the chimney with a Q-Tip. I also coloured in the little snowflake in the sky with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 pen and then Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear to make it sparkle. I set the card aside to let the glitter dry for a few hours.

For the card base I used Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 and edged around all of the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Iced Spruce. I die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper to the size 3.75″ x 5″ using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and Cuttlebug. This was adhered directly onto the base using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Once the glitter was completely dry, I layered the completed image on top of the second layer using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Christmas Joy!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring Christmas Joy Snowy – S228 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). I love snowmen, winter and Christmas! Growing up in a northern community, we had a lot of snow. It was always so much fun and seeing the snow fall on Christmas day was always wonderful. Where we live now, we don’t get as much and it’s always disappointing when we don’t see snow on the ground for Christmas. It’s ok for the other days, but Christmas is extra special. Hopefully, Christmas Joy Snowy will bring some snow for us this year on our special day. LOL!

To create the card this week, I first used my Cuttlebug and Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection Peeking Snowflake to create a die cut out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper. I stamped the image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. Once it was all coloured in, I added added some snowflakes to the sky using Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Clear – Wink of Stella was applied to all of the leaves. Stickles – Diamond was added to create the ground snow effect and I sprinkled some Martha Stewart Crafts – Crystal Fine Glitter on top of the Stickles while it was still wet. The coloured image was set aside to let it dry.

I die cut the larger oval using the same dies out of Crafts – Thick Glitter Craft Paper. I love this paper, but in order to prevent the glitter from getting everywhere, I first sprayed it with some hairspray.

The card was now ready to assemble. I used Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5″ card for my base. The large oval was adhered directly onto the base using 2-sided tape. The main image was added using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and some snowflake embellishments were added to complete the card.
