Winter Wonderland


Sharing a card I made from the Kit and Clowder October 2020 Markers Class called “Winter Wonderland”. I really love snow and nature and this class combined both of those loves for me. The class challenged me in a lot of ways, but I am so happy with the final results. I decided to turn this finished image into a Christmas card.

Alyce is such a wonderful instructor as she takes you through chapter by chapter breaking down everything and she is very easy to follow. I am sure that I will be doing this class a few more times. One for more practice and two because I LOVE this image so much! LOL!

To complete the card, I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station to change it into a sticker as I wanted it lay completely flat on the black cardstock that I was adhering it to. I stamped out the sentiment using the stamp from Rosewood Frog’s Whiskers Ink called May Your Christmas – G1089 with VersaMark ink and then used Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was then heated with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I just thought this sentiment went so well with the image.

I cut some AC White Cardstock and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. Then I added some glue to the back panel of my image and mounted it directly to the base. I used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop up the sentiment and then added some embellishments to complete the card.

Gnome For the Holidays


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Snowy Gnome – TLF024 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image from the new August 2020 release and From Our Gnome – GLL001 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This little gnome has gone home for the holidays to celebrate with friends and family. As you can see there are a lot of activities going on in Gnome Town. This little gnome has his snowballs ready for the next snowball fun fight! LOL! While waiting for the other team to get ready, he’s decided to take a little break and enjoy nature with his little cardinal friends. Then, let the fun begin!!!

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 6″ x 6″. I cut some dark blue cardstock, just slightly smaller and adhered it to the card with Tombow Mutli-Liquid Glue. I just love this paper from PhotoPlay called Gnome for the Holidays Christmas. I thought it went perfectly with this new stamp. I cut it at about 5.75″ x 5.75″. Then I glued it to the blue paper.

I die cut multiple circles in a variety of sizes using a mixture of My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles and Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles using dark blue and red cardstock and also Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card for the main image.

The image was stamped onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock circle using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. It was then coloured it in with Copic markers. For the snow, I used Recollections – Christmas Snow Paste, Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter – Crystal Fine and a spatula and let it dry overnight. Then  Stickles – Diamond was added onto the top of it. For the sky a mixture of 2 Gel pens were used and then a little bit of Stickles – Diamond to add some glitter to it. I was trying to get it to match the background paper. Once the Stickles was dry, I glued the bottom 2 layers of circles together and then the top 2 circles.  Both were done separately. The sentiment was stamped with Versa Mark and then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and heated with Marvy Uchida Embossing Heat Tool. I fussy cut around the sentiment and glued it directly on top of some red cardstock. Then I cut around that as well.

To complete the card I popped up the bottom circles, top circles with coloured image and sentiment with the 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Lastly, I added some more sparkle with Stickles – Diamond by adding it to the base of the card in random places.
