Sweets for my Sooeet!!!


Valentine’s Day Is Almost Here!!! Who Wants Chocolate???

It’s Wednesday, and since Valentine’s Day is almost here, I thought I’d share this adorable little piggy called  Sow Soo-Eet Piggy (S091) from High Hopes Rubber Stamps! He sure does love his chocolate and so do I. LOL! I’m a choc-o-holic and so is my husband! I can give up many things, but not my chocolate. No way! LOL! And the sentiment Sweets for my Sooeet (G197) by High Hopes Rubber Stamps is the perfect fit for this card.

I decided to keep the card simple this week. I started off with a base of 5.5″ x 5.5″. I used double side tape and added the pretty heart ribbon to both the top and bottom of the card.

The die cuts for the main image are both from Craftin Desert Diva’s – Fancy Frames. I edged around the large die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony to deepen the red. It was then attached to the card using 2 sided tape.

The main image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured in with Copic Markers. I left the die cut metal frame on while I coloured the image. Once, the coloured image was done, I was ready to add some clouds. To do this, I stamped the image again onto some Post-It paper and then cut it out to create a masked image. I layered this on top of the pig and Valentine’s boxes and then created the clouds in the background using various blues from Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink and a stencil that I created using Avery Elle – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock. I die cut the frame for the sentiment with Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies out of red cardstock. Then I used the same red cardstock, which I had just cut the banner out of to use as a stencil to trace around my sentiment.  I then used the trace marks as a guide to cut the sentiment out, moving just slightly inwards from my tracing to create the inner banner. This allowed me to have a nice red frame around the sentiment.

To finish the card I popped up the coloured image and sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added a couple of hearts.

Happy Retirement Bros!


Sharing some cards that I made for my 2 brothers who both retired recently.

My older brother was a Fireman for many years and worked his way up to being a Captain. My younger brother worked for the Ontario Provincial Police Force (OPP) in various roles and became a Sergeant.  My brother in the OPP worked with forensics and we used to ask him how much of what we saw in TV shows was actually real. He thought it was amazing at how fast they could solve a crime and wishes it was that easy! LOL!

I am very happy for them both, but jealous at the same time. LOL!

I decided to make them both very simple cards and to do them both the same only changing the colours to match their professions. The red is for the fireman and the blue is for the police officer.

To make the cards I used various Tim Holtz inks to create my own background on a 5.25″ x 4.25″ background using the sentiment from Your Next Stamp –  Photo Booth Thumbs UP – CYNS709. Next I coloured in both of the images with Copic markers the same and then coloured in one background in various reds and the other in blues.

Next I used my Cuttlebug to die cut  Photo Booth Polaroid die (YNSD735) – (Your Next Stamp) and then embossed the sentiment using the same stamp set as above. I then attached the image to the die cut and popped it up with some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

On the inside of the card, I used Your Next Stamp – Cool Tees – CYNS714 for the image and sentiment. Again I coloured up both images to represent their professions. Showing the inside of the 2 cards below.

Unfortunately, I still have to work for a little while longer! LOL! But, someday, my day for retirement will also come.

Congratulations to my 2 brothers, you both worked hard, sometime with long periods away from your families and and now you both deserve some time to enjoy life. Have fun!

Dancing Snowmen Friends


Sharing a card that I made using High Hopes Rubber Stamps: Dancing Snowman Friends – TT139 and High Hopes Rubber Stamps: Holly Jolly KK048.

Went away for a really fun Scrapbooking weekend with the ladies from One Crazy Stamper and Scrapbook Niagara. One of the contests was to come up with card or Scrapbooking layout using the design and papers provided. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to do it again next year!

Here is the creation that I cam up with.

Close-up of the snowmen:

Stamped the images with Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI. I then coloured all of the images in with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. Then added in some snow using Wink of Stella – Glitter White, Nuvo Glitter Accents and sprinkling on some DecoArt Glamour Dust. For the sky I used Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point.

Die Cuts:

Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Ovals.

Sizzix Framelits – 561152, Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Snowflakes

My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles

Paper:

Bo-Bunny’s – Mistletoe Twas the Night – ITEM#13001299 and Bo-Bunny’s Mistletoe Greetings – ITEM#13001294.

Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper – 8.5 x 11″

Edged around paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony.

Sentiment was stamped using my MISTI and VersaMark – Onyx Black, embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Hope you like it!
