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!

It’s Pasture Birthday!


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share a card that I made using Farmer Clem (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) on the front of the card and Charlie Party Cow (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) on the inside. A friend asked me to create her a belated birthday card for her farmer friend and I thought this made the perfect combination to do it.

I coloured in Farmer Clem (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and then fussy cut around him and popped him up on the front of the card. All of the sentiments were created in Microsoft Word and then printed out on my printer. Details are below.

 

For the inside of my card, I stamped the Charlie Party Cow (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) twice and then fussy cut around both of the cows to make it look like they had a party going on. I popped up the one cow image to give the scene a little bit of depth.

Capture the Good Times!


Hi Dreamerland Crafts Fans!

Today I’d like to share a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts Photographer stamp from their new release this year. I decided to colour the outfit blue to match the cameras in the background. To create the scene, I also used several of the Dreamland Mix and Match background stamps.

 

 

I used some Canson Watercolour paper and wet it down. Then I stamped on my clouds using Clouds – Dreamerland Crafts Mix & Match Collection stamp and a mixture of Tim Holtz Blue inks which you can find in the list below. For the background blue, I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass, some water and a watercolour brush.

For the greenery Flower Beds – Dreamerland Crafts Mix & Match Collection stamp was used and stamped with a mixture of Tim Holtz greens and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Gathered Twigs. Then I used the watercolour brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet for the flowers and to add in a little more colour below the shrubbery.

I popped up the little girl and bird with some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape after stamping the images with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then colouring the images in with Copic markers.

Background paper and sentiment are from Creative Memories – Shutter Bug collection which I thought was perfect to complete this card.

Note: Using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool allowed me to do the placement of the Mix and Match images with ease.

I hope you like my little photographer! Are you ready to go out and take some pictures now too???
