Buddy’s Present


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing another Christmas card featuring Buddy’s Gift Block – R161 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with the sentiment Sm. Christmas Script – F051 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). Buddy and his little birdie friend are all set for Christmas with his gift all wrapped up for you? How soon do you start wrapping presents for Christmas?

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. Once it was all coloured in, I fussy cut around it and used a black marker to go around all of the edges. I used some 2-sided tape and placed it onto some white cardstock. Then I used my cutter  to cut a thin border all around the image. I repeated this process with some red cardstock and edged around all of the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door. I added some Stickles – Sea Glass around the inside border, Stickles – Icicle for the hat and pom-pom and some Clear – Wink of Stella to the all of the baubles and set everything aside to dry.

For the sentiment, I cut the the stamp in half so that I could place it on 2 lines. To stamp the sentiment, I used my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. The powder was heat set using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

For the base card I started out with white cardstock folded in half to create a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card. Doodlebug – Milk and Cookies paper was used for the background. I fussy cut along the bottom following the flow of the words. Some red cardstock was glued from the back onto the background paper and then I followed the flow of the previous cut to create a thin border. I repeated this process with some green cardstock. Once all of the 3 layers were complete, I cut the piece to be approximately 5-1/8″ x 3.25″. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn was used to go around all of the edges.

To assemble the card, I glued the combined background layers onto the base card.  The main image and frame created earlier were added using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card.

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.
