Musical Penguin Parade


Hi There! Today I’d like to share a Christmas Card I made using Top Hat Penguin – RLF005 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps), Trumpet Penguin – RLF006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Flute Penguin – RLF002 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). Musical Wishes – GLL014 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) was chosen for the sentiment. I just love these adorable penguins and couldn’t resist putting them all together to create a musical penguin parade. LOL!

To make my card this week, I used Recollections – White cardstock for the base card which is 7.25″ x 7″. I scored the paper at 3.5″ to create the dimensions of 7.25″ x 3.5″. The red background was cut to the same size using Crafter’s Companion Luxury Cardstock – Red. The musical notes layer was cut from Craftsmart – Classic Village at 7″ x 3.25″. The snowy background was die cut to the same size in length using Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper. I used My Creative Time – Tall Frame Dies, My Creative Time – Tall Frame Layers in order to achieve this. Once the snowy background paper was die cut, I tore along it in order to create the illusion of white snow drifts along the top of the snow. I adhered all of the layers with double-sided tape. Using my large Misti, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.

I stamped all of the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Misti and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The images were then all coloured in with Copic markers and die cut using my Brother Scan and Cut machine. Then I ran all of the images through my Xyron Creative Station to make them all stickers. I placed them on the card and then used Stickles – Diamond to create some snow drifts. Clear – Wink of Stella was added to the Candy Cane to make it sparkle and also to all of the leaves and holly on the hats.

To complete the card, I edged all around the scene with Stickles – Sea Glass.

Sending Warm Hugs


Sharing a card I made today for a challenge using Super Cool Pals  from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. I really love anything Christmas and winter related and who couldn’t resist this adorable snowman and little fox?

To make my card, I started out by stamping the image using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it. I die cut the background paper using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. It’s from Stampin Up’, but I received it in a Mystery Box, so I’m not sure what paper pack it comes from. Then I tore up some Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and taped it to the bottom of the panel.

The snowflake was die cut using Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper 12″ x 12″ and Tim Holtz – Sizzix Thinlets – Paper Snow Flakes. I ran the paper and my finished coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station and also the Holiday Glitz paper was put through it as well before I die cut it. This allowed me to make stickers out of both items. For the sentiment, I used my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then embossed it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was then heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Once this was done, I die-cut the sentiment with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles and edged all around it with Kraftin’ Kimmie – Lovely Lagoon Ink. I also edged all around the snowy background with the same ink.

For the assembly, I started out using the base from Recollections -Christmas Cards and Envelopes set at 5.5″ x 4.25″. Using double-sided tape, I  adhered the snowy background to the base. Then I added my main image and snowflake. The sentiment was popped up using some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and Stickles – Diamond glitter was added to parts of the snow to finish the card off.

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.

Winter Birthday Wishes!


Sharing a card that I made for my sister-in-law. I was so happy when Polkadoodles came out with this new release for Winnie Winter Celebrations.

The stamp that I used to create this card is called Birthday Gifts – Winnie Winter Celebration (Polkadoodles).

I printed out the image on Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. By using Grayscale, your image won’t smudge when you go to colour it in. I coloured the image using Copic markers and then used Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow in the sky and
Stickles – Diamond to create some texture in the snow.

For the squares die cutting, I used My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I really love the colour combos of Recollections – Northern Lights paper pad. I popped up the cut out frame and coloured image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Lastly, I die cut some snowflake borders using Snowflake Border Die (#YourNextStamp) and then just used glue on 1 half of each side of the snowflakes and then mounted them onto the paper. Lastly, I added some small purple gems into the centre of each snowflake and some larger purple perls to the top and bottom of the card to finish it off.

Our Friendship is Magic!


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and for my last High Hopes card for the year, I’m sharing a couple of good friends just relaxing and taking it easy! Sometimes it is nice to just chill out a bit! LOL! The stamp for the main image is called South Pole Pals R147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).

To make my card, I decided to keep it simple. I cut out the frame using Amy Design – Dies – Keep It Cool – Cool Square Frame and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next, I stamped the image using my MISTI into the centre of the die cut. I coloured this in with the Copic markers listed below. For the outside of the die cut, I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China and sponged on the ink using a dauber.

To create the background for the main image, I re-stamped the main image onto Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and fussy cut it out. Then I placed the mask over my coloured image. Next I used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Festive Berries to create the sky. I have never tried this before, and just love the way it turned out.

For the snow, I stamped the bottom of the image with VersaMark ink and then added WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle. I heated up the embossing powder with my heat gun and then added some Stickles – Diamond along the top of the snow.

Next I assembled the card onto 5.5″ x 5.5″ white AC Cardstock. I cut out a piece of 5.5″ x 5.5″ Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper and mounted it with 2 sided tape onto the base. Then I added glue to the back of the frame and centre previously cut and coloured with Zig 2 Way Glue and mounted it onto top of the card.

Lastly, I added the sentiment Magic Friendship F234 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and popped it up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish up the card.

Card Recipe:

Stamp:  South Pole Pals R147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Magic Friendship F234 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Festive Berries, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Faded Jeans, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Wilted Violet, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China, Versamark

Walking in a Winter Wonderland


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card with you that I made using DCS19089 – Mix and Match Clear Stamp  (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the main image and sentiment and 2018 Christmas Trees & Houses – M18312 (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps) for the trees in the background! I thought this little bear was just so adorable, so I thought I would make him pulling his little forest friend on a little walk through the forest!

I used the centre die cut from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background – CED3049 to cut out the area I wanted to stamp my image on. I used Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI to get a nice clean image. The first step was to stamp the bear, sled and bunny. Next I used Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and stamped the 3 images again. Next, I added the masked images over top of the images that were previously stamped on the base image.

The second step was to stamp in the trees. I wanted to give the impression that some trees were further back, so I inked the tree stamp with Memento – Bamboo Leaves and stamped once and then immediately again using the same stamp. I performed this several times across the background. Once all of the trees were in place, I removed the masking and was ready to colour in my images.

Before adding snow to the sky, I stamped on the sentiment using VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I added in the snow flakes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

The colours used for each character and the trees are listed below. The final step for the main image was to add in some sparkle on the trees and snow on the ground. For the glitter on the trees I used Quickie Glue and DecoArt Glamour Dust. For the snow below the trees, sled and bear, I used VersaMark ink and WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle and touches of Stickles – Diamond.

Lastly, I die cut the background frame using Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Pointsettia Mini Background. I added glue to the back of the die cut and mounted it on top of Crafts Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. Then I popped up the main image in the centre using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Nordic Night Snowy Delight!


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and today I’m sharing a card that I made using the image Nordic Snowman with Bird (TLF010) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) from our latest Christmas release. I just love the serenity of this image.  I grew up in Northern Canada and have always loved snow. It’s always so beautiful watching it come down from the sky. Not so much fun when you have to shovel it or drive through a snow storm, but other than that, it is quite beautiful! LOL! Did you grow up where there was a lot of snow too?

To make my card, I first stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Then I ran the stamped image through my Cuttlebug and die cut it with Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames.

I decided to colour in the sky first with various blue Copic markers. After I coloured in the sky, I added in the falling snow using Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen.

I thought the sweater looked Scandinavian, so I decided to colour it similar to some Scandinavian  sweaters that I’ve seen in the past. I used Sakura Glaze – Black pen to pop up the eyes and smile on the snowman and lastly added some Stickles – Diamond for the pom-poms on the hat and along the top of the snow on the sweater. I also coloured over top of the black snowflakes with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen on the sweater and hat.

For the snow at the bottom of the snowman, I used the same die-cut, Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames, to cut out the base using Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper. I then ran this same paper through my Cuttlebug again, this time using the die cut from Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders. Next I popped it up on the image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

I die-cut some patterned paper using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) that I had in my stash and then popped up the coloured snowman image onto it using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

For the sentiment I used Winter Delight (G114) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). I stamped the sentiment and then die-cut it out using Craftin Desert Diva’s – Tag Essentials Dies. Then I went around the border of the die-cut with Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear pen and drew in some small snowflakes.

I then die-cut some snowflakes using Poppy – Simple Snowflakes (Style 1931) from Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper. Once the snowflakes were all cut out, I ran them through my small Xyron to make them into stickers.

To assemble the card, I started with a base of 6″ x 6″ white AC cardstock. Next I mounted American Crafts – Wonderland Collection paper for my background. I chose this particular pattern as I thought it matched the image so well. I attached the mounted snowman directly to the background paper using 2-sided tape. I popped up my sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Added my snowflakes and then finished off the card by adding in little gems in the centre of each snowflake and 1 on the sentiment.
