Fido – Love You


It’s Wednesday, and today I’m sharing a card I made using KLM Digital Design –  Fido – Love You from the new January 2023 release. Our pets always give us unconditional love and they make the best companions to talk to, play with and just cuddle with with when we need a big hug!

To make my card this week, I started with a 7.25″ x 3.5″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Burgundy was cut to the size of 7.25″ x 3.5″ and adhered directly to the card. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Tall Paw Frame Dies, I die cut Martha Stewart Crafts – Enchanted Woodland paper and the little bone using scraps of brown and black cardstock. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Festive Berries and a blending brush were used to ink around the edges of the large die cut. This was popped up onto the base using U-Line Double-Sided tape.

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The paper was cut to be 5-5/8″ x 2-5/8″ and everything was coloured in. U-Line Double-Sided tape was added to this and it was popped up onto the die cut. I ran the bone die cuts through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached them to the card to finish it off.

Make Lemonade!


Today I’m sharing an inspirational card using KLM Digital DesignLemon Gnome from the new January release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “I could just Squeeze you!” and “Squeeze the day”.  I’ve always loved lemons and they are good for so many different things, baking, tea and they are high in Vitamin C, just to name a few.

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base. I had found Crafts Designer Paper – 02-3093268 at Dollarama and thought this paper was perfect for this card. I chose 2 patterns from this paper pack and cut the darker pattern to the size of 5.25″ x 2.25″ and the other piece to the size of 5.25″ x 2.75″. Two rectangles were cut out of Recollections – Black cardstock to the size of 5.5″ x 2.75″ and 5.5″ x 3″. With yellow cardstock and my Cuttlebug, I die cut the large oval using Waffle Flower – Additional Oval dies and the larger circle with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles. All of the edges for the patterned pieces and the yellow die cuts were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mustard Seed.

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. With my Cuttlebug, I die cut the large oval using Waffle Flower – Additional Oval dies and the smaller circle with My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Squeezed Lemonade was applied to the outer edges of the smaller circle. The image was coloured in with Copic markers.

For the assembly of the card, I applied the 2 patterned pieces together with the black cardstock using double sided tape. I placed the colourful piece down first onto the base card and then the second piece was applied over top of that one. Both were adhered with double-sided tape. The image and the sentiment were both popped up onto the larger oval and larger circle using U-Line Double-Sided tape. I applied U-Line Double-Sided tape to the backs of these combined pieces and then popped them both up onto the card. Finally, I added in some YNS Gumdrops – Tropical Paradise around the sentiment to complete the card.

3 Stooges!


It’s Wednesday and today I’m sharing a birthday card using KLM Digital DesignThree Stooges Gnome from the new January release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Just relax and except the crazy” and “Make time for yourself”. I grew up watching “The 3 Stooges” and if these gnomes are anything like they were, you never know what’s going to happen. LOL!

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5.5″ x 5.5″ card base. I cut Echo Park – It’s Your Birthday (6″x6″ Double-Sided) designer paper to be the same size and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The printed image and Echo Park – It’s Your Birthday designer paper were both die cut using my Cuttlebug and Whimsy – Wavy Stitched Squares Die Set. I inked around the designer paper with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Black Soot and popped it onto the base using U-Line double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade was applied around all of the outer edges of the card.  The main image was coloured in with the Copic markers listed below and then popped up onto the centre of the designer paper with U-Line double sided tape. The sentiments were fussy cut and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade was applied around the edges. I wanted the larger sentiment to stand out a little more, so I first ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then adhered it to a scrap piece of Recollections – Black cardstock. I fussy cut around it again and then applied U-Line double-sided tape to both sentiments with double layers on portions of them and popped them up onto the card. Lastly, I used my Quickie Glue pen to trace around some of the spirals and dots on both designer papers and applied Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter – Crystal Fine to give it some sparkle.

Oh Puck! I Forgot!


Sharing a belated birthday card that I made today using Photo-PlayO Canada 2 Beaver & Hockey and Lawn Fawn – Let’s Go Nuts for the bottom half of the sentiment. I couldn’t resist this adorable beaver and it’s sentiment when I saw it. Can you guess what hockey team he plays for? LOL!

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base. I cut the iced boards and ice to the size of 5.5″ x 1-7/8″ and coloured in the lines with copic markers using a ruler. I added a shadow where the beaver was going to be and then applied Wink of Stella – Clear onto the ice portion. I applied the rink portion to the base using double-sided tape. Echo Park Paper Co.Happy Birthday Boy paper was cut to the size of 5.5″ x 2-3/8″ and it was adhered to the card using liquid glue.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. They were coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut. Using a black marker, I inked around all of the edges. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the images and they were popped up onto the card.

Using my MISTI again and VersaMark ink, I stamped the sentiments onto Recollections – Black cardstock. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied to the ink and then heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the sentiments and they were popped up onto the card.

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base. I cut Recollections – Fireside paper to be the same size and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape.

Birthday Wishes!!


Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using Polkadoodles stamp called Winnie – Birthday Tree for my sister-in-law.

To create this card I began by making a base of 5″ x 5″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I applied a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink – Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries around the edges of the card with blending brushes. 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.

With my Cuttlebug, I die-cut the image and Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper using Whimsy – Wavy Stitched Squares Die Set. 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 Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff to the snow on the bottom. A Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to puff up the liquid. Stickles – Diamond was added to the snow in between and in some areas on top of the Fluffy stuff. With a UNIPosca PC-3M White marker, I created the snow in the sky. Once the Stickles dried, I popped up the coloured image layer to the card using U-Line double-sided tape as well. YNS Gumdrops – Sparkly Enchanted Garden were added to the centre of the snowflakes to finish off the card.

Merry Christmas Bears!


Sharing a Christmas card that I made for my husband this year using Penny BlackNose to Nose – 30-521 and Gina K. DesignsPeaceful Christmas for the trees. Bears have a special place in our hearts, so this was the perfect image to celebrate our Christmas with.

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base. I cut American Crafts Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Foundations Paper to be the same as as the base. I went out of my comfort zone and attempted to create Northern Lights in the sky by applying a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks – Prize Ribbon, Twisted Citron, Villainous Potion and Black Soot with blending brushes after watching several YouTube videos. Once I was satisfied with the colours, I spritzed the paper with water and allowed it to dry. Once again, I did some ink blending with the same colours. I used some water and a small paint brush and applied Cosmic Shimmer – Opal Glaze Polish – Gilded Avocado over the entire sky. I set this aside to dry. Wasn’t quite what I expected it to be, but I still liked it and hope that you do too!

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and then fussy cut it out. By now the background was dry. I put the background back into my MISTI and this time, using Color Hue – Remarkable Ink Pad Eclipse Black, I stamped the trees. I mixed together a combination of FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint and Delta Ceramcoat – White. With a small paint brush and some water, I applied this to the bottom below the trees and onto the small heart. I love the way some of the blue and purples came through onto the snow giving it some natural shadows. I also added in some stars by putting some of the mixture onto the brush once again and then tapping it to create a small splatter in the sky. This dried fairly quickly. I attached the finished background to my base card using double-sided tape. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the image and heart and then they were both popped up onto card. Stickles – Diamond was applied to create the snow on the ground to give a cast shadow below the bears. Lastly, I cut the sentiment out of Recollection – Christmas Vellum. This was put through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make it lay flat and not show any glue marks.

Most Exciting Moment!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called The Most Exciting Moment – D18035. This image reminds me so much of me and my brothers opening our gifts together every year in front of the Christmas tree.

To create this card I began by making a base of 6″ x 6″ using AC Cardstock – White. Recollections – Journey To The North Pole was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was applied around the outside edges of the card with a sponge dauber. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out, I die cut Recollections – Burgundy and Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the backs of each of them and they were both popped up onto the centre of the card. Utilizing the Cuttlebug again and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock, the die-cut for the image and frame was cut out with Lea’bilities – Star Christmas Frame. TCW – Stardust Butter – Champagne was applied to the star frame and I set it aside to dry.

With a MISTI, the main image was stamped onto the centre frame die cut using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured it in with Copics and then with Scotch tape applied to the back of the image, rejoined it to the star frame. U-Line double-sided tape was added and the finished piece was popped up onto the centre of the card. YNS Gumdrops – Firefly Magic Sparkly Gumdrops and YNS Gumdrops – Firecracker Sparkly were added to the coloured image. Lastly, I placed the sentiment and 3 poinsettias to the card using Holiday Trendz – Foil Stickers – Seasonal Icons.

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.

Christmas Kitty Fun!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Christmas Kitty Fun – S107 for the main image and Merry Christpaws – FLL006 for the sentiment. Our cats could never resist playing with our Christmas wrapping paper and playing in the boxes. I can’t even begin to count how many cardboard boxes they demolished over the years! LOL! Wishing you and all of your pets a very safe and joyous Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of 6″ x 6″ using AC Cardstock – White. I thought this patterned paper from Craft Smart – Hot Buy called Happy Pawlidays went perfect with this image and sentiment.

The image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and Lawn Fawn – Let It Shine Snowflakes patterned paper. I coloured in the image and then fussy cut around it. With a black marker, I inked around the outside of the image.  I ran the patterned paper through my Xyron Creative Station to make it like a sticker and then fussy cut around the gift paper and paper pieced it onto the coloured image. The entire image was then adhered to the card using liquid glue. I removed the backing from the remainder of the gift portions and applied them directly to the card base as well. A few extra white and sparkly dots were added onto the patterned gift paper using a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear pen. Stickles – Diamond was applied to the hat, pompom, snowflakes and dots on the background patterned paper to add some extra sparkle.

Using my MISTI and VersaMark ink, I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of red cardstock. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied over top of the ink and then heat set with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. This was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Pink & Main – Large Sentiment Strip Dies. The sentiment was popped up onto the top of the card using U-Line double-sided tape. Lastly, I glued on some embellishment buttons after removing the backings from Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – Itty Bitty Snowflakes and Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – Glitter Holly. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door was inked around the outside edges of the card with a sponge dauber to finish it off.

Everything is Magical!


Sharing a Christmas card that I made today using KLM Digital DesignSledding Gnome from the new December 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Some people are worth melting for” and “Walking in a Winter WONDERLAND”.

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base. I cut Lawn Fawn – Let It Shine Snowflakes designer paper to be the same size and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape. The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The printed image was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Die-namics – MFT – Stitched Rec Scallop Frame dies. It was coloured in and then I applied Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff. DecoArt Glamour Dust was sprinkled over top while it was still wet and then it was heat set with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to puff up the snow. I applied the snow flakes in the sky using a UNIPosca PC-3M White marker and snow on the ground with Stickles – Diamond in between and on top of the fluffy snow. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the image after the Stickles was dry and it was popped up onto the base.

Snowy Smiles!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Snowy Smiles – RR003 for the main image. Winter is one of my favourite times of the year and the beauty of fresh snowfalls always make me happy as long as I don’t need to shovel. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629 was applied to the base card. I cut out Heartfelt Creations – Celebrate the Season Collection paper and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and a finger dauber. This was popped up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape.

The image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I coloured in the image and then fussy cut around it. With a black marker, I inked around the outside of the image and then added U-Line double-sided tape and popped it up into the centre of the circle on the patterned paper. I applied the Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629 to a scrap piece of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock to match the background base paper.

With my Cuttelbug and Birch Press Designs – Big Joy dies, I die cut the sparkly scrap piece of paper and another scrap piece of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I coloured in the larger die cut with Copic markers and then attached the 2 pieces using liquid glue. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the combined piece and it was popped up onto the card under the snowlady.

I cut off the backs to 3 buttons from the Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – It’s Cold Outside and then applied Nuvo – Glacier Paste – Pixie Wings to them to give them a purple shimmer. Once the glacier paste was dry, I attached them to the card with liquid glue.

Winter Wonderland


Sharing a CAS card that I made today using KLM Digital DesignSkier Gnome for the main image and Sledding Gnome for the sentiment from the new December 2022 release. I tried Cross-Country skiing a few times. I was so bad at it, that once was enough for any of my friends. They said I was too dangerous on them. LOL! I even skied down into a tree to avoid knocking over 3 people once going down a small hill. My friend was laughing so hard it took him a little while before he could help me back up away from the tree. But, by the time we got back he was freezing and I was hot from all of the hard work I was doing trying to keep up to him. He was a professional skier. That was the last time he ever went with me. Then there was the time that there were about 6 of us. They made the mistake of asking me to go first side-stepping up the hill. I almost made it to the top when my foot slipped and yes, I knocked everyone over like a bunch of bowling pins. LOL! Guess what??? They never went with me again either. Oh well! Some things are just not meant to be!!! As you may have guessed by now. Downhill is definitely out of the question for me.

To make my card this week, I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Christmas Plaids paper was cut to the same size and adhered directly to the base using double-sided tape! The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. With my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die cut the printed image and sentiment.

I coloured in the image and then added in the snow in the sky using a combination of a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and UNIPosca PC-3M White marker. The snow at the bottom was created using a combination of Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and DecoArt Glamour Dust. To puff up the snow, heat was applied using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I added a little more glitter along the very top of the snow with Stickles – Star Dust. The completed image was then popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape.

Lighting the Candles!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamp called Lighting the Candles – D15204. This little angel is helping to light the way to a joyous Christmas for all!

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Doodlebug Design Inc. – Winter Wonderland was cut to the same size and applied directly to the base card using double-sided tape. I cut a piece of Recollections – Burgundy to the size of 5.5″ x 2″ and from a scrap piece of patterned paper 5.5″ x 1.75″. Double-sided tape was used to attach the 2 pieces together. These were attached to the base card using double-sided tape.

With my Cuttlebug, I die-cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Ice Blue Pack and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock with Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Holly Lattice Frame. U-Line double-sided tape was attached to the larger die-cut and it was popped up onto the centre of the card.

The image was stamped onto the the smaller die-cut using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, MISTI and Dreamerland Crafts – Lighting the Candles stamp. It was coloured in with Copic markers and Stickles – Star Dust was added to the snow on the ground. For the sky, UNIPosca PC-3M White marker was used for the small snowflakes. Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – Itty Bitty Snowflakes and Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – It’s Cold Outside buttons were placed over top of the images’ snowflakes with liquid glue after I had removed the backing from them. Wink of Stella – Clear was applied to the wings to make them sparkle. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the completed image and popped it up onto the centre of the card.  To complete the card, I placed a PinkFresh Glitter Drops – Lagoon in each corner.

Snowmen – Winter Fun!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Snowman Dash – TT054 for the main image and Winter Fun! – F109, for the sentiment. Growing up in the North, we couldn’t wait to get home from school to go sledding down the hills across the street or behind our house. There was so much snow that the snowbanks the plows created were just the perfect height for us to have loads of fun! On the weekends, we would go to the much larger hills!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I inked around the edges with a blender brush and blue ink that I still had on it from a previous project. I don’t clean off my brushes because I have dedicated brushes for each colour group.

The image was stamped onto the inner die cut using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, which I had die cut using my Cuttlebug and paper from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock with MFT – Stitched Rec Scallop Frame dies. I coloured in the image and then added the sentiment using a MISTI, VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The snow in the sky was created using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and UNIPosca PC-3M White marker. Stickles – Star Dust was added to the snow on the hill and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and DecoArt Glamour Dust were added to give some texture to the snow where the sled had been. A Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to fluff up the Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff. Once the Stickles was all dry, I pieced the 2 die cuts back together using Scotch tape on the back. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the combined piece and it was popped up onto the card.

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.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″ Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock to be the same size as the base card and then with my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto it. I coloured in the image and then placed it back into my MISTI to stamp the sentiment onto it. I applied VersaMark ink and then embossed it with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail.

For the snow at the bottom of the card, Brutus Monroe – Snow Paste was applied with a small spatula and DecoArt Glamour Dust was sprinkled over top while it was still wet to give it even more sparkle.

You’re How Old??


Sharing a CAS birthday card that I made today using KLM Digital DesignThinking Gnome from the new November 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “Just thinking of you” and “Thinking of you makes my day”. This little gnome is thinking really hard to figure out how old you are this year! LOL!

To make my card this week, I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Echo Park – Happy Birthday paper was cut to the same size and adhered directly to the base using double-sided tape! The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and then fussy cut around it. I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it onto a small piece of Recollections – Black cardstock and fussy cut around it again. Using a Cuttlebug and dies from Sizzix Framelits – Banner Dies, I die cut the sentiment and a larger banner using Echo Park – Happy Birthday paper. With a blender brush, I inked over the sentiment die cut to give it a shade of green colour. With Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles and a finger dauber, I inked around the 2 banners and all around the card. The larger banner was adhered directly to the card using liquid glue. The image and sentiment were both popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape. YNS Gumdrops – Tropical Paradise were added to the card to finish it off.

Have A Hoppy Day!!


Sharing a birthday card that I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Hang In There Frog from the new November 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Take a leap of faith” and “Hang in there”.

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured the image in and then fussy cut around it. Using a black marker, I inked around the image.

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 5″ x 4.25″ card base. Using multiple Tim Holtz Distress Inks and a blender brush, I created the background sky directly on the card base. The leafy border was die cut using Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, a Cuttlebug and Lawn Fawn – Tropical Leaves Backdrop dies. With multiple Tim Holtz inks and a blender brush I inked over the die cut and some extra leaves from the same die set. Then with Copic markers, I made some of the leaves a little darker to give the background some contrast.

Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D Foam Strips were attached to the back of the large die cut. I applied some glue to the ends of the vine for the frog and attached them to the leaves. Once the glue was dry, I added more Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D Foam Strips to the back of the coloured image. Both pieces were now attached to the base card. I applied some glue to the individual leaves and applied them directly to the base card underneath the die cut. Lastly, I die cut the sentiment using a Cuttlebug and Poppystamps – Christmas Quotes die. I inked around the edges of the die cut with a black marker and then glued it to the tops of the leaves to finish off the card.

Holiday Wishes!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Holiday Wishes – D18031 May all of your holiday wishes come true this season for you and your loved ones!

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Stardust Christmas paper was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” paper was cut to 5.5″ x 1.25″ x 5.5″ x .75″. With my hands I tore along the top of both pieces to give the snow some texture. I applied double-sided tape to the larger piece and adhered it directly to the card. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the smaller piece and it was popped up over top of the larger piece.

The base card was placed into my MISTI and the sentiment from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps – The Magic of Christmas was stamped onto it using VersaMark ink. Recollections Detail Embossing Powder – Silver was applied over top of the ink and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I removed this from the MISTI and stamped the main image with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The image was coloured in and then fussy cut. With a black marker, I inked around all of the edges and then added U-Line Double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the card and snow. Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff was placed under the couple’s boots and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to puff it up. Stickles – Diamond was then added over top of the fluffy snow to create more sparkle. Finally, to complete the card, Stickles – Crystal was applied to the centre of the stars in the sky.
