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.

Udderly Fabulous Christmas!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a CAS Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Decorating With Charlie – TT060 for the main image and Udderly Fabulous – HDG007 for the sentiment. These little farm friends have started to decorate their tree. Have you started to decorate yours?

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. I heated this with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Snow was added to the sky using a UNIPosca PC-3M White marker. 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. Once the snow was dry, I applied double-sided tape and liquid glue to adhere the image directly to the base card.

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.

Winter Friends!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Winter Friends – TT048 for the main image and Jingle All the Way – H040, for the sentiment. Snowmen are one of my favourite images to colour and how adorable is this happy snowman singing to his little friend?

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of 6″ x 6″ using AC Cardstock – White. I adhered American Crafts – “Kringle and Co” 6 x 6 in. cardstock to the base front. Red and green cardstock were cut to the sizes of 6″ x 1.25″ and 6″ x 1-1/8″ from some spare paper I had. I adhered the green to the red using double-sided tape and some glue to allow me to centre it. The combined strip was put through a Xyron Create a Sticker to keep it flat. I added this combined strip to the card approximately a .25″ up from the bottom. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was used to ink around all of the edges of the card and it was set aside to dry.

Using my Cuttlebug and paper from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, I die cut the frame with Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Oval die cuts. The image was stamped onto the die cut using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image and then added the snow in the sky using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Stickles – Crystal was added to the snow on the ground and along the branches to give it some sparkle.  I set the image to the side to allow the Stickles time to dry.

I cut a piece of Recollections Christmas Ink Jet Printable Glitter Paper to the size of 4″ x 1″. Using my MISTI once again, I stamped the sentiment onto it using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then cut a fish tail on each end. U-Line double sided tape was added to the back of the sentiment and then it was popped up and centred in between the red and green stripe. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the image and it was popped up onto the card above the sentiment once the Stickles had dried. Lastly, I die cut 2 pinecones and some pine leaves using my Cuttlebug and dies from Stampin’ UP! – Pretty Pines Thinlets die set. Liquid glue was used to pieced them altogether. I adhered these to the 2 upper corners of the card and then applied some Stickles – Crystal to the leaves to finish off the card.

To make my card this week, I started with a 6″ x 6″ card base using AC Cardstock – White. Using double-sided tape, I attached the patterned cardstock of the same size from Signature Collection by Sara Davies – Winter Wonderland.  The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Cuttlebug and Gina Marie Designs – Big and Little Pierced Chain Oval Layered Dies, I die cut the image and then coloured it in. With a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, I added snow into the sky. Stickles – Diamond was added to the snow on the ground and snowballs to add some sparkle. Stickles – Crystal was added around the oval and the coloured image was set aside to dry. I fussy cut around the sentiment and then ran the pieces through a Xyron Create a Sticker. The pieces were adhered to Recollections – Black cardstock and then fussy cut again. After everything was dry, U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the sentiment pieces and the image. These were all popped up onto the background paper.

Carolers – Joy To The World!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Carolers – TT011 for the main image and Joy to the World – GLL012, for the sentiment. Seeing these carolers reminds me of my younger days when we would go visiting and sing Christmas carols at our cousins and our parent’s friends’ houses.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base from Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 (Assorted Box of Cards). Using my Cuttlebug and paper from Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Ice Blue Pack, I die cut the snowflake border with Lawn Fawn – Snowflake Border die cuts. Using the same paper, I cut a thin strip .25″ x 5.5″. With Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust”, I cut a strip 1″ x 5.5″. Using double-sided tape, I attached the 1″ strip directly onto the base card. I ran the other strip through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to the card next to the 1″ strip. I added liquid glue to the backs of each of the snowflakes for the snowflake border and adhered them over top of the larger strip. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass and a finger dauber were used to ink around all of the edges of the card.

With my Cuttlebug and dies from My Favourite Things – Die-namics – Elegant Rectangle Stax, I die cut a large rectangle out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The image was stamped onto the die cut using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image and then added the snow in the sky using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff was added to the trim of the girl’s jacket and then heat set with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to puff it up. Crystal – Stickles was added on top of this and also along her dress hem. DecoArt Snow-Tex sprinkled with DecoArt Glamour Dust and a spatula were used to create the snow on the bottom of the image. Crystal – Stickles was added to add some extra sparkle and give some highlights. Wink of Stella – Clear was added on top of the music books. The sentiment was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Northern Pine ink. It was then die cut using my Cuttlebug and Poppystamps – Christmas Quotes dies. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was used to ink around the edges. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the sentiment and finished image and popped them both up onto the card. Lastly, I added Ranger – Snowflake Glitter with liquid glue to finish it off.

North Pole Greetings!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps North Pole Penguin – TDG008 for the main image and Seasons Greetings – F300A, for the sentiment. Christmas is getting nearer and this little penguin is helping Santa deliver some of your presents this year!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base from Crate Paper – Boxed Cards – Mittens & Mistletoe (5.5″ x 4.25″). Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness and a finger dauber were used to ink around all of the edges. With my Cuttlebug and dies from My Favourite Things – Die-namics – Elegant Rectangle Stax, I die cut a large rectangle out of Forever In Time – Texture Rouge paper and a smaller one out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the large rectangle and it was popped up onto the base card.

The image was stamped onto the smaller rectangle using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image and then with a paint brush and a small mixture of DecoArt Glamour Dust, FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint and Delta Ceramcoat – White, I added in the first layer of snow. A little more DecoArt Glamour Dust was added to it while it was still wet. This dried pretty quickly and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and more glitter were added to give the snow some texture. I also added this to the hat, pompom and sign. Lastly, I added some Crystal – Stickles because you can never have enough glitter. LOL! Wink of Stella – Clear was added to the bows, side of the ball on the pole and down the entire pole.

Meowy Christmas!


It’s the last day of the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop and today I’m sharing a Christmas card I made using Gerda Steiner Designs –  Deck The Halls – GSD438. I thought this image was adorable! Have fun hopping everyone!

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background to be the same size using Wild Rose Studio – Winter Bauble Paper and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass and a finger dauber, I inked around all of the edges of the card. With my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Dies – Ornaments, I die cut a large ornament from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and the ribbon and topper from a scrap piece of gold cardstock.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and with Versafine – Majestic Blue, I stamped the sentiment onto the base card. I embossed the sentiment with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat set it with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and with a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen designs were added to the ornaments and light bulbs. I tried to create the ornament as close to the paper as I could. Once this was completed, using liquid glue, I attached the top piece and the bow to the ornament. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of ornament die cut and it was popped up onto the background. With a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen, I added in some string for the bauble.

Paw-sitively Good!


It’s day 5 of the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop and today I’m sharing a Christmas card I made using Your Next Stamp –  Meowy Christmas – CYNS681. Having so much fun with this amazing hop and look forward to it every year.

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background to be the same size using My Favourite Things – Pawsome Prints paper and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, Creative Expressions – Festive Collection – Bold Snowflake Frame dies and Recollections – Blue Hues Shimmer Cardstock, I cut out the large snowflake and frame. Using some scrap dark blue paper, I die cut the large outline. I tore along the top of a small piece of Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and then die cut it with the larger cirlce die from the same die set. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Faded Jeans and a finger dauber, the edges were inked all around the base card. With liquid glue, I attached the large snowflake to the background border. I then attached the snow piece that I had cut previously with liquid glue as well. Then, using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, I coloured in some snow in the sky.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. I added some U-Line double-sided tape to the image and popped it up into centre of the circle. The shadow was added using B52. The sentiments were both stamped onto the dark blue paper with VersaMark ink and then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. I cut out the larger sentiment with my cutter and the smaller one using my Cuttlebug and Gina K Designs – Sentiment Strips. I attached U-line double sided tape the sentiments and coloured image frame and popped up everything onto the card base.

U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the backs of three Creative Impressions – Brads – Snowflake – Winter with a double layer. They were all popped up onto the card and then YNS Gumdrops – Firefly Magic Sparkly Gumdrops were applied to the centres to finish the card off.

Hallowe’en Kitty and Friends!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Hallowe’en card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Hallowe’en Kitty – TT042 for the image and Happy Halloween – H232 for the sentiment. I thought it would be fun to end the month off with another spooky card since Hallowe’en is only a few days away from now.

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″. Textura Select Cardstock – Tropicana was cut to the same size as the base and adhered using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. I stamped the main image onto the die cut and the sentiment onto a scrap piece of orange cardstock using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Using my Cuttlebug and Gina K Designs – Sentiment Strips, I die cut the sentiment that I stamped.

The image was coloured in and then I used a black Prismacolor Premier Pencil to highlight a few of the areas to make them stand out a little more. I also extended the fence to the ends of the die cut on both sides. I added back in the whites of the eyes with a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen and some stars in the night sky. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the sentiment and the coloured image. They were both popped up onto the base to complete the card.

Making Beautiful Music!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Making Beautiful Music – D152002. This little angel is so sweet and is spreading Christmas cheer to everyone early this year.

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 5.5″ using AC Cardstock – White. AC – Christmas Cardstock – Green was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. The frame was created using Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss die-cutting machine, Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Ornate Holly Framed Noel die and Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” paper. I applied liquid glue to the back of this piece and then adhered it to the card.

With my Cuttlebug, I die cut a 3.5″ x 3.5″ square using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The main image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I cleaned off the angel and then stamped in place again using VersaMark ink for the snowflakes. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied to the image and then heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I coloured in the image and then added some sparkles onto the dress using a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Sparkle was added to wings with Clear – Wink of Stella. To make the snowflakes a little brighter and to add some smaller snowflakes in the sky, I used a white Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I created a small mixture of FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint, DecoArt Glamour Dust, Delta Ceramcoat – White onto an acrylic block and with a paint brush added in the snowy background along the bottom of the square. Using a small Stylus, I added in a few more sparkly snowflakes and sprinkled DecoArt Glamour Dust over them while they were still wet. This was then put aside to dry.

Using my Cuttlebug, I die cut 6 petals and 7 leaves out of scraps of paper using Spellbinders – Holiday Flower & Greenery dies. Liquid glue was used to attach the petals together and the I added U-Line double-sided tape and some liquid glue to the bottoms of them to attach them to the card. I trimmed the leaves and with a small amount of liquid glue applied to the tips of the leaves, I adhered them to the card under the flowers. PinkFresh Studio – Essentials Jewel Mix yellow jewels were glued to the centre of each flower. Using my Cuttlebug once again, I die cut 2 sentiments using Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Ornate Holly Framed Noel die with some scrap gold paper. The oval was die cut using Creative Expressions – Frames and Tags – Charlotte dies and a scrap piece of AC – Christmas Cardstock – Burgundy. I glued the 2 sentiments on top of each other to give it some dimension and then attached the sentiment to the oval. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the finished image and it was popped up onto the centre of the card. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the oval and it was popped up onto the top of the card to finish it off.

Snow Kisses!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a snow lady Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Snow Kisses – TT059 for the main image and Holly Jolly – K048 for the sentiment. I’ve always loved snow people and birds and this stamp combo makes me smile because it has both.

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 2 strips of Doodlebug Design Inc. – Winter Wonderland coloured snowflake pattern to the size of 6″ x .75″. 2 strips of Doodlebug Design Inc. – Spring Solid Assortment paper to the size of 6″ x .25″ and 1 strip of Forever In Time – Textura Sky cut to the size of 6″ x 4″. With Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough and a blending brush, I inked around all of the edges of the larger pieces. I ran all of the smaller pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker. The pieces were then attached to the base card from top to bottom. I used liquid glue to attach the larger piece. I trimmed around the 3 sides of the card with a paper trimmer to make it all even.

For the frame around the image, using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss die cutting machine, I die cut the entire frame with Doodlebug Design Inc. – Winter Wonderland paper and Penny Black – Graceful Stackers dies. 2 dies were pieced together for the pink frame using my cutting device and Forever In Time – Textura Blush cardstock. Lastly, I stamped the image with Memento – Summer Sky ink onto Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” using my MISTI. I took this piece and ran it through my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss die cutting machine again so that it would fit snug into the frame. I cut off the remainder following the stamped snow along the top and inked it with the Memento – Summer Sky ink. Using liquid glue, I applied the pink frame over top of the snowflake die cut while carefully matching up the edges. Liquid glue was applied to the lower back of the snow piece and it was attached to the snowflake background inside the frame.

The image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. After colouring the images, I fussy cut around all of them and then with a black marker, inked around all of the edges. I popped up the snowlady using U-Line double-sided tape and attached her to the card under the snow. The little bird was also popped up using U-Line double-sided tape and some liquid glue. Using Copic B41, I added in some shadows in the snow and Stickles – Hibiscus was applied to the scarf and pompom to give them some extra sparkle.

The sentiment was stamped onto Doodlebug Design Inc. – Spring Solid Assortment using my MISTI and Versamark ink. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles, I die cut the sentiment. The edges were inked around using a finger dauber and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. The snowflake was cut using my Cuttlebug, Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” cardstock and die from Recollections – Christmas Snowflakes Clear Stamp & Die set. I popped up both the sentiment and snowflake using U-Line double-sided tape onto the card. Lastly, I added 3 Doodlebug Designs Inc. – Sprinkles onto the frame to finish it off.

Present Gnomes


Sharing a Christmas card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Pre-Colored – Present Gnome – Blue and Pre-Coloured – Present Gnome – Yellow from the new October 2022 release. Christmas is not that far away now and it’s time for me to create more cards for the holidays.

To make my card this week, I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background paper from PhotoPlay – Gnome for the Holidays Christmas to be the same size and attached it to the base card with double-sided tape. I cut some green cardstock to the size of 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″. U-line double-sided tape was attached to the piece and it was popped up onto the centre of the card. Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper was cut to the size of 4.75″ x 3.5″. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, I inked around the base card and the snowflake piece.

The images were imported into Microsoft Word and I layered them together before I printed them out and fussy cut around them leaving a thin white border. I cut the snow piece to be 4.75″ x 1″ using Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” and then tore it look like drifting snow. I glued along the bottom of this piece with liquid glue and adhered it to the snowflake patterned paper. Using liquid glue, I attached the gnomes on top and behind the snow. I applied liquid glue to the finished piece and centred it onto the green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on to a scrap piece of blue cardstock using Versamark ink and then applied Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heating Tool. I die cut the circle using a 1″ Circle punch and then applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean around it. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the sentiment and it was popped up onto the card. Lastly, to finish everything off, some Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Sequins were added around the sentiment.

Sharing a Hallowe’en slim line card I made today using KLM Digital DesignFido – Hallowe’en Freebie from the new October 2022 release.  Fido is all set for Trick or Treating with his little “Bee” outfit. Do you dress up your pets for Hallowe’en too?

To make my card this week, I started with a 7″ x 7″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored this at 3.5″, so that the final card base measured 3.5″ x 7″. To create my background, I die cut the haunted house and path using an Anna Griffin Empress Mini cutting Machine, Recollections – Black cardstock and Say It With Stamps – #6 Haunted House Coverplate Die. The little bats were cut from the same die set at the same time. For the yellow behind the windows I cut a solid piece using Momenta – Cardstock. I glued this into place on the back of the die cut using liquid glue. I love how the Momenta paper had the colour variations of yellow. Using the die cut as a reference as to where to place the background colours, I applied a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks for the sky listed below and Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the path with Gina K. Designs blending brushes. Once the background was coloured in, I applied glue to the back of the die cut and adhered it to the card. Using the same cutting machine again, I die cut the sentiments 3 times using scrap pieces of orange and black cardstock which I had run through my Xyron Create a Sticker first so that it would be easier to attach them on top of each other later. I pieced them all together and attached them to the card. The 3 bats were then placed around the sentiment.

The image was imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The images were coloured in and then Wink of Stella – Clear was applied to the wings to make them sparkly.  Both images were fussy cut and U-Line double-sided tape was applied to both and they were popped up onto the card to finish it off.
