Santa’s Coming!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Motorin’ By Santa – T094 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Coming To Town – G271 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Santa’s motoring through town to bring everyone some Christmas Cheer!

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″. I cut the background paper from Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to be the same size as the base and inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. I applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. AC – Black cardstock was cut to 5.5″ x .75″ and adhered to the bottom using double-sided tape. I die cut the village using my Cutttlebug, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and Village Edges dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I coloured in the homes and put some yellow cardstock behind for the windows. Then I took the little doors, coloured them in and inset them back into the die cuts. Once this was done, I added Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel – Iridescent to the hills and Stickles – Diamond to the roof tops.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped both the image and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. I added Stickles – Xmas Red to the Holly on the motorbike and Stickles – Diamond to the pop pom on Santa’s hat. Using my Cuttlebug, I die cut the sentiment using Whimsy Stamps – Quick Strips Die Set. I ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it on some red cardstock. Then using my cutter, I cut around it leaving a slim border.

Once everything was dry, it was time to assemble the remainder of the card. I applied the houses directly to the base over top of the road. The Santa image and sentiment were both popped up onto the background using 3M double-sided tape.

Polar Bear and Friend!!


Sharing this adorable image called Polar Bear and Friend from KLM Digital Designs today from the January release. This set comes with 3 sentiments, “You are Amazing”, “You’re My Sunshine on a Rainy Day” and “Best Friends Forever”, which I used on my card.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers. The sentiment was brought into Microsoft Word.  I imported the shape within Microsoft Word and used a weight of 3 for the solid line. Then, I brought the sentiment to the front and centred it in the middle of the shape. I printed this out on Recollections White cardstock and then just fussy cut around it.

I used AC White paper to create the base shape of the card 12″ x 6″. I scored the paper at 6″. I used Recollections – Blue Ombre Cardstock for the main background, cut to the same size as the base card. This was attached using double-sided tape.

Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. Penny Black – Winter Roof die was used to die cut the icicles. The snow drifts on the bottom of the card were die cut using dies from Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders. Once the icicles and snow drifts were die cut, I used the Tattered Lace die cut again so that everything would layer to the shape of the smaller rectangle. I used my Cuttlebug and Cuttlebug – Snow Dots stencil twice to create the texture to the larger rectangle. Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel was added to the icicles and front layer of snow. Stickles – Diamond was used to add texture to the back snow drift. Once everything was dry, I inked around all of the outside edges of the snow, rectangular shapes and main background with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch.

To assemble the card, I used double-sided tape to attach the large rectangle shape directly to the base card. The smaller rectangle shape was assembled separately, then attached to the larger rectangular shape using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Tombo glue was used to add the icicles and layers of snow to the smaller rectangluar shape. The image and sentiment were popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To complete the card, Stickles – Diamond was added below the bear to create a shadow and also some streaks along the snow.

Mistletoe Santa Gnome!!


Today, I’m sharing another super adorable gnome from KLM Digital Designs November release called Mistletoe Santa Gnome. The image comes with 3 different sentiments, “Merry Christmas”, which I’ve used on my card and also, “Believe” and “ho-ho-ho”. This Santa gnome is out taking a stroll and enjoying the magic of Christmas and winter.

I decided to colour this Santa in non-traditional colours. To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers. Then I applied Nuvo Glitter Accents – Fresh Snowfall to the all of the trimming and set it aside to dry.

I used AC White paper to create the base shape of the card 6″ x 6″. Then I applied Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper cut to the same size directly to the base. I had a spare cut-out from American Crafts – “Holiday” paper in which I had used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to die cut the centre. I trimmed it a little bit on all sides to create a border. I took a small scrap of Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and tore it across the top to imitate snow caps. This I adhered to the back of the die-cut panel. Then, I glued the entire piece down on to the background. I also made sure that I didn’t use any glue towards the tops of the snow.

The sentiment was brought into Microsoft Word and I adjusted the width to be .95″. This allowed me to use the 1″ die from Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to die cut the sentiment after it was printed out. I inked around the edges of the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers and applied Clear – Wink of Stella over top of it to make it sparkle. The snowflakes were all die cut from Signature Collection by Sara Davies – Winter Wonderland Snowflake Quartet.

The remainder of the card was now ready to put together. I glued the Gnome directly to the background paper and moved it slightly under the snow. I added glue to each of the snowflakes and placed them directly onto the backgrounds. Lastly, I popped up the sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Little Cup of Cocoa


Coffee Loving Cardmakers is currently hosting the 2020 Fall / Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! For my Fourth entry into this hop, I chose this loveable snowman in a hot tub of Cocoa called Snow Yummy – S182  by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. For the sentiments I used High Hopes Rubber Stamps, Cup of Cocoa – M009 and Holiday All Year – H200.

The image was stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI to give me a nice clean image. The image was coloured with copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. I used a black marker to go around all of the edges where I had cut out the image.

I cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper to be 4.25″ x 11″. Then I scored the paper at 5.5″ and again at 8.25″. (2.75″ from the original score line). I cut another piece of the cardstock at 4.25″ x 5.5″ to be the front panel. I then cut Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to be 4.25″ x 5″ and used double-side tape to place it directly to the front panel piece. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was used to create the snow. I cut it 4.25″ wide and then just tore a piece across the width to create the shape. I used double-sided tape to adhere this directly to the bottom of the front panel.

The sentiments were then added with Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was then heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. To create the rectangles, I used  My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers  for the patterned paper and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies for the background rectangle using Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones. Next, I ran the small sentiment and the coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station to create stickers out of them. This made it easer to adhere the larger image to the background and the smaller sentiment to the larger rectangle.

The card was now ready to assemble. I applied double-sided tape to only the lower half of the scored card and then placed the finished scene panel onto it. I cut another piece of patterned paper at 4-1/8″ x 3″ and adhered it the lower half of the inside card. Then I popped up the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added some Wink of Stella – Clear  to the snowman to make him sparkle and Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear and the Wink of Stella – Clear to the large snowflake on the mug. Lastly, I added some Stickles – Diamond to add some texture to the snow.
