Better Late Than Never!!


Sharing a birthday card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Stanley The Snail from the new May 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “You snailed it!” and “Thanks SLOW much!”  Love this sentiment “Better late than never!” as it could be used for so many different occasions.

Using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, I created a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, I created the clouds with Lawn Fawn Cuts – Cloudy Stencil directly on the base card. With the dies from Lawn Fawn – Simple Grassy Hillsides and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper, I die cut 3 lawn cuts using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine.

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. Using scissors, I fussy cut around the coloured image and inked around the edges with a black marker. I cut the sentiment with my cutter and added U-Line double sided tape to it and popped it up onto the smallest lawn cut.

The card was now ready to assemble. I added U-Line double-sided tape to each layer of grass. I added a second layer of U-Line double sided tape to the middle layer. I used my fussy cut image to determine where the lawn cuts would be positioned and then popped up each layer onto the base. I applied some glue to the back of the image on the bottom only and adhered it to the card between the 2nd and 3rd layer of grass. I felt like the card still needed something, so I added 3 lady bugs from Forever In Time – Ladybug Gems and a butterfly from Doodlebug Design Inc. – Plum Butterflies Braddies to finish off my card.

Itty Bitty Heart!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a CAS card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Sweetheart Gnome – SLF012  for the main image. I just love this sweet little gnome image as you can change the sentiments that she is holding onto. On this card, I chose to add a heart as I thought it would go great with the sentiment Itty Bitty Heart – H006.

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″. For the background, I used my Cuttlebug, Scrapbook.com – Brights Smooth Cardstock and the embossing folder called Cuttlebug – Thank You. After putting this paper through my Cuttlebug, I saw that the texture was white on some of the letters. I decided to take some more of the background colour off using 3M 405N Tri-M-Ite sanding paper. I just loved the rustic effect it gave. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The image was coloured in and fussy cut. A cutter was used to go around the sentiment. 3/8″ We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper was used to create the rounded corners. I inked around all of the edges of the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door.

To assemble the card, I attached the embossed background directly to the base using double-sided tape. The sentiment and image were both popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape to complete the card.

Grocery Gnomes!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Grocery Gnome – Boy and Grocery Gnome – Girl from the new December release. I love these images as they are great for creating a card for our unspoken heroes who serve us everyday at the grocery stores.

I created the base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the paper to the size of 5.5″ x 8.5″. Then I scored each side at 2-1/8″ each and folded them towards the centre. I die cut Photo-Play Autumn Greetings – Fruit Baskets paper using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. This die cuts the paper to exactly 5.5″ x 4.25″. I then cut this piece into 2 using my cutter to create 2 equal pieces of 2-1/8″. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint was used to ink around the edges of the 2 pieces. I applied these directly to the 2 front panels using liquid glue. I wanted to be able to keep the fronts closed, so I used my Cuttlebug and Pink Fresh Dies – Slim Stripes to die cut some green cardstock. I applied 1 longer piece to the left side at the top, 1 long piece to the bottom on the right side using liquid glue. Then I added a stripe on the remaining sides top and bottom with liquid glue to the length of 2-1/8″. On the inside of the card, I applied some 1/8″ tape to a small piece of the green stripes, cut at .5″ x .5″. This allows the longer flaps to slide into them to keep the card closed.

I imported the images and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The images were coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut with scissors. U-Line double sided tape was applied to the backs of the images and they were popped up onto the card. Finally to finish it off, I applied small embellishments from Dress My Craft – Fruit Salad Slices with liquid glue across the top of the card.

The sentiment was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint was used to ink around the edges and double-sided tape was used to adhere it to the inside of the card.

Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Thank You Gnome from the new August release. I decided since Autumn and our Canadian Thanksgiving is almost upon us and some of the leaves have begun to change, that I would colour in the letters in the Fall colours.

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut the image to the size of 7.25″ x 3.5″ using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and My Creative Time – Tall Frame Layers.  For the base card, I cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to the size of 7.25″ x 7″ and scored it at 3.5″. After colouring the image, I applied it to the base using double-sided tape.
