Sending Hugs and Prayers


Today I’m sharing a CAS card that I made using  Cherry Blossom Bird (KLM Digital Designs).  This image from KLM Digital Designs new release comes with 2 beautiful sentiments “Sending Hugs & Prayers” and “Sending Hugs” which could be used for an Inspirational, Get Well or Sympathy Card! I think we could all use a little hug! So I’m sending you all a virtual hug today!

For this card, I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. Then I coloured it in with Copic markers. Once the colouring was completed, I traced around all of the image with a Micron 01 Fine Liner to make the flowers and leaves pop.  I created the background surrounding the flowers using Copic YR20 and YR21. Then I used a Q-Tip and mottled the background using some rubbing alcohol and just dabbing here and there. Double-side tape was used to adhere the blue cardstock to a white base card cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″. The finished image was glued onto the card base and some Kraftin’ Kimmie Enamel Dots were added to finish it off.

Hang in There!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I thought I’d make an inspirational card to share with you using Raggedy Ann-ouncement – R044 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Hang In There – D278 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I created the background on Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock using various stencils, Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes and Tim Holtz inks which I have listed below. I thought the sun rays reflected a ray of hope for everyone and I hope that we will all be seeing better days soon. Once the background was finished, I used 2 sided tape and mounted it onto the base card.

I stamped the image  and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured in the main image with Copic markers. I ran the coloured image through my Brother Scan and Cut to create a slim border around it and then went around the edges with Y06 – Yellow and YG25 – Celadon Green to make it blend into the background. Lastly, I popped up the image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and created a small shadow below Raggedy Ann.

Sentiment: Hang In There – D278 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sympathy Card – Cat


Hi There!

Sharing a sympathy card that I made for a dear cousin that had to say goodbye to her little son around Christmas time. I say son, because to us, our cats are like children. We love them and cherish them in our lives everyday and it is heartbreaking when we have to let them go and say our final good-byes. We also lost our little girl last year and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her or the others that we’ve had to say good-bye to. So we know first hand how it feels when someone else we know loses their pet.

For the card front, I chose the little girl holding onto her cat because I thought it represented how we still hold onto our loved ones in our hearts long after they are gone. I left the cat white as “Spot” was a white cat.

Here is a close-up of the image.
