Sunflower Puppy


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Sunflower Fido from the new July 2022 release. This image comes with 2 other sentiments as well, “Always look on the bright side!” and “Like Wildflowers, You must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.” I’ve always been mesmerized by the beauty of sunflowers and how tall they grow. Of course, eating sunflower seeds is also a lot of fun too!

I created a 6″ x 6″ card base using AC White Cardstock cardstock. Stampin’ Up – Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper was applied to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Gina Marie Designs – Ric Rac Nested Circle Dies, I die-cut Stampin’ Up – Simply Marbleous Designer Paper. With Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch and a small sponge dauber, I inked around all of the edges of the card base and the die cut.

I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. After, I finished colouring the image, I fussy cut all around it and used a black marker to go around all of the edges. I used my cutter to cut around the sentiment and then ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then placed it onto Forever In Time – Sky cardstock. I cut the paper again leaving a slim border around the sentiment. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the ric rac die cut.  U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the die cut and sentiment piece and both were popped up onto the card. Finally, YNS Gumdrops – Circus Fun Matte Gumdrops were added to complete the card.

Woodland Gnome!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Woodland Gnome Girl from the new August release. This little gnome is keeping calm even with little bees flying around. I know if it was me, I’d be running for cover. LOL!

 

This image also comes with 2 other sentiments, “You gno-me too well” and “Just because”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using by Brother Scan and Cut, I cut around the image leaving a small white border. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. PhotoPlay – Gnome for the Holidays Thanksgiving paper was cut to the same size as the base and attached using double-sided tape. Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper was cut to the size of 5.5″ x 2.5″ and glued onto the sunflower paper in the centre. The image was popped up and placed onto the centre of the yellow background paper. Using my Cuttlebug, die cut from Lawn Fawn – Simple Grassy Hillsides and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper, I cut the grass. I fussy cut around the printed sentiment and used Copic YGO1 to fill in the background and to go around the fussy cut. I ran this piece through my Xyron Create a Sticker because I wanted the sentiment to lay nice and flat on the grass background. The grass was then centred and popped up on the card. All of the background layers were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness before placing them onto the card. Lastly, to complete the card I added in a few bees from Sprinkletz Embellishments – Bubble Bees.
