Kitty In Training!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Hallowe’en card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Kitty In Training – TT052 for the image and Happy Halloween Script – F232 for the sentiment. Hallowe’en is one of our favourite times of year and my husband likes to go all out decorating our front yard. I always have fun finding new animated toys to add to our decorations and love seeing the little trick or treaters faces light up when they come to our house.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb., cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I die cut the background paper from Pebbles – Boo! cardstock to be the same size and attached it to the base using double-sided tape. Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine, I die cut Scrapbook.com – Brights Smooth Cardstock for the larger frame. Using the same machine, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The thin stripes were die cut using Scrapbook.com – Rainbow Smooth Cardstock and PinkFresh Studio – Slim Stripes dies. Lastly, I cut a black strip using Recollections – Black cardstock to the size of 4.25″ x 1-3/8″.

I stamped the main image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card die cut using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it in. The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap piece of orange paper cardstock using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black and then it was die cut using my cutting machine and Gina K Designs – Sentiment Strips.

The card was now ready to assemble. I ran the thin strips through my Xyron Create a Sticker and adhered them to the black strip leaving small spaces in between them to be the same as the witch’s socks. I ran this whole piece through my Xyron Create a Sticker again so that it would lay completely flat when I adhered it to the base card. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the rectangles and sentiment and popped up all of the layers onto the card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot was used to ink around all of the edges of the card and Stickles – Diamond was added to the small dots at the top of the card above the stripe lines. Gelly Roll Sparkle Pen was added to the sky to create some sparkly stars.

Born to Be Wild!!


Sharing a card that I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Pre-Colored MotorCycle Gnome from the new May 2022 release.  I remember how refreshing it was when I was younger going for rides on a motorcycle during hot weather!

Using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, I created a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut a panel to be the same size out of the same cardstock. The mountains were created using Kraftin’ Kimmie – Krafty Scenery 2 and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo, Picket Fence – Blending Brush and blocking off the base of the mountains with a long Post-It Note. Once the mountains were in place, I created the clouds using Lawn Fawn Cuts – Cloudy Stencil, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. I die cut the road using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine, My Favourite Things – Die-Namics – Open Road MFT-1138 out of Recollections – Black paper. I measured it to the line of the mountains and cut it. Using this as a guide, with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush, I created the grass.

Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Stampin’ Cut & Emboss – Pine Wood Dies, I die cut all of the trees using Scrapbook.com – Jewels Smooth Cardstock and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow. I coloured the trunks using Copic marker E27. I applied the bottom trees with glue and then popped up the front trees with Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D Foam Strips. I imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I fussy cut around the image and added 2 layers of U-Line double-sided tape to it and popped it up onto the road to complete the card.

Ellie & Friends!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Easter card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Ellie & Friends – TDG025 for the image and Happy Easter! – F096 for the sentiment. We are celebrating our new “Spring Fever Release” this month and who couldn’t love this adorable image!

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 flower cardstock from Echo Park – Welcome Easter at 6″ x 1.75″ and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper to 6″ x 4.5″. I applied double-side tape and adhered both pieces directly to the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet ink was used to ink around all of the edges of the base card. Using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and my Cuttlebug, I die cut Momenta – Cardstock and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. 3M double-sided tape was applied to the back of this and it was popped up onto the base card.

Using PinkFresh Studios – Essentials: Blanket Stitched Square Die Set and my Cuttlebug, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I stamped the main image onto this die cut and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers and then U-Line double-side tape was applied to the back of it. This was popped up over top of the yellow square.

I fussy cut around the sentiment and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet. I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it to the Momenta – Cardstock and fussy cut around it again. I applied Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D Foam Strips to the back of the sentiment layers and added it to the bottom right of the card. Lastly, I added in 3 DoodleBug Design Inc. – Sprinkles Spring Assortment to complete the card.
