Birthday Sentiments For Ewe


Today I’m sharing  Sheep and Sentiments (KLM Digital Designs) image from KLM Digital Designs new September Release. These little “Ewes” are so fun to colour up and I just love their adorable expressions. This stamp comes with 3 sentiments, 2 of which I have used in the cards below and also “Wooly Hope Ewe Feeling Better”! I wooly love this stamp set and I’m sure you will too! LOL!

 

I printed out the main images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was then die cut with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Both of the images were then coloured in with Copic Markers. For both cards, Hot Buy – Recollections – Watercolour Solids Cards & Envelopes – 5.5″ x 4.25″, Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Down on the Farm – 6″ x 6″ paper pad were used to create the backgrounds. I edged around the printed backgrounds with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough ink.

My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers were used to die-cut the background paper for the 2nd card. The sentiments were both printed out onto Recollections – White card stock and then fussy cut. They were then placed onto some Dark Yellow Cardstock and fussy cut around again. All of the layers were now ready to be assembled. The image, background layer and sentiments were all popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Some Kraftin’ Kimmie Dots – Neon Rainbow were added to the 1st card.

Birthday Banner Gnome


Today I’m sharing Banner Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) from KLM Digital Designs new release. I thought it would be fun to put the new banner stamp inside a banner. This was such an awesome stamp to play with and it comes with 3 different sentiments, “Happy Birthday” as shown here, “Your Awesome” and “Congratulations”.

When I first started colouring this card, I had something totally different in mind for how I was going to colour the scroll. But, once I created the background, I decided to colour it using bluish green tones for the top and bottom of the large scroll.

I printed out the main image twice onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I always print using Grayscale because the image won’t smudge when you go to colour. I found that printing out in black sometimes did. I used my brother Scan N’ Cut to cut around 1 of the images. Then fussy cut it where I still needed to. As I mentioned, once before, I’m still learning how to use my new machine.

For the other image, I die cut around it using Penny Black – Paper Scroll and my Cuttlebug. I coloured in the main image with copics. Then I placed the other image that I had cut around earlier over top of it to use it as a mask. I also used some Post-It Note paper to mask off the top and bottom of the main scroll. I used a Picket Fence Studio’s brush and went over the entire background inside the scroll with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass. Then, I placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Confetti Stencil over top of everything. I have a large magnetic mat, so I just used some strong magnets to hold everything in place. Then, using the various sized Picket Fence Studio brushes which I labelled in various colours, I used a mixture of Tim Holtz inks to create the background. All of the colours are listed below.

I removed all of the masked pieces and then completed the colouring of the large scroll.

Lastly, I attached the entire image to some Recollections Purple Passions cardstock cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″ and added some small balloons which I had die cut previously using Your Next Stamp – Mini Balloon Trio Set.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Banner Gnome (KLM Digital Designs)

Wade Goes To The Beach!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Wade – 132 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Summer’s Day Saying – L031 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Wade couldn’t wait to go the beach. He’s enjoying the waves and the beautiful beach and sunshine. It will be wonderful when we can all join him with our friends and families too!

To make my card this week, I started off with a white card base of 6″ x 6″. I cut out another piece of paper using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock the same size as the base card. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug using Stampin’ Up – Sizzix Big Shot – Seaside. I loved the wavy pattern it created. Next, I used multiple Tim Holtz shades of blue to create the water effect. All colours are listed below.

I used my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and white cardstock for my image and sentiment. I stamped the sentiment and image onto the die cuts and then coloured in the main image with Copic markers. The background was coloured in using a variety of Copic Refill inks, Colorless Blender and a Q-Tip. For the water, I wisped several colours back and forth and then added some Copic Colorless Blender and wisped the colours one last time. Once everything was completed, ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station so that it would lay completely flat on the blue cardstock I mounted it onto. I cut a thin border all away around the image and inked around the edges of the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy.  Then popped the image and the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the base card. I added in a some sea shells from Dress It Up – Beach Collection and Craftin’ Desert Divas – Seashells Sequence. I just removed the button portion and then used glue dots to attach to the card.

Card Recipe:

Stamp:  Wade – S132  (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Summer’s Day Saying – L031 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Evergreen Bough and Brushed Corduroy

Never Grow Old!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing an anniversary card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called We Will Never – D19077. My husband has always been my best friend and we are often told that we are still kids at heart. So, this sentiment and stamp were the perfect combination for us.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I die cut a heart out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. Then I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the image and background of the heart with Copic markers.

For the background, I used Stampin’ Up! – Have a Cuppa paper. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI. I used Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I then coloured the top half with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Worn Lipstick and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. Next, I edged around all of the background pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. I layered the centre background cardstock onto the base first and then the next 2 layers directly on top of it. Lastly, I popped up the image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added a few pop dots from Kraftin’ Kimmie.

Do you have an Easter tradition of painting eggs too?

To create the card I coloured in the image and then popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I also popped up the sentiment. I found some old cardstock and cut out some of the little eggs and then edged around each of them with various Tim Holtz colours listed below. The card is 6″ x 6″.

Super Tall Cake!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps  Super Tall Cake – D19017 for the main image and Birthday Sentiments – Set 002 (DS163007) for the sentiment!  This adorable little bear made a cake for someone very special! Hmmm! I wonder who that could be. LOL!

To make the card I first die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with Craftin Desert Diva’s – Inside Scalloped Squares. Then using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the paper. I coloured in the image using Copic markers.

Next I cut out used some tape to inlay the image back into the frame that I had previously die cut to make it one piece again. I also die cut the yellow and aqua paper with the same die cut twice. Then I used the yellow to be the inlay for the aqua frame and taped it back together on the reverse. After that, I used my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black to apply the sentiment. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heated up using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

Next, I edged around the borders of both frames with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. I ran the base frame through Xyron Creative Station to make it into a sticker and so that the entire frame would lay flat. I mounted this onto 5″ x 5″ white cardstock. Then I popped up the smaller frame and image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Hello My Friend


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Dreamerland released some brand new stamps in October 2019 and today, I’m sharing Hello My Friend (D19080) from the October Character release!

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copic markers. Once it was all coloured, I fussy cut around it leaving a small white border. I then added the final touch on the pom-poms with Stickles Pink and Stickles Aqua.

I used a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ white card for my base. I then cut the patterned paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe at 5-1/4″ x 4″ , inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough and mounted it onto the white base.

For the ovals I used the die cuts from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies, to create the various layers. I used the same paper pad to cut the small oval. Miscellaneous scrap paper that I had for the second oval and white for the last oval. I popped up the first 2 ovals using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the largest oval and then mounted the large oval directly onto the base. Then, I popped up the image using the same 2 sided tape on the top oval.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Cut around the sentiment and then mounted it onto card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

All edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough before mounting onto card.

Get Well Gopher!


Welcome OCS Fans!

Today is Wednesday and I’m back to share this adorable little gopher nurse in a tea cup to cheer up your friend, who isn’t feeling so great right now from the new Get Well Soon collection. The stamp I’m featuring is called Gopher Tea Nurse (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and the sentiment is Think Happy (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)!

I die cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders – Labels 10. Using my MISTI, I stamped the image with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Next I coloured in the image with a mixture of Copic markers and PrismaColor Pencils. To get the crisp white edge around the image, I repositioned the cut out image back into the die cut and then taped the back to keep it in position. Then I coloured in my background around the image. Once completed, I removed the tape from the back of the die.

I die cut a second frame from the same die cut set (Spellbinders – Labels 10) and then edged around it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough using a dauber. Next, I put the die cut into Cuttlebug – Snow Dots embossing folder and ran it through the Cuttlebug again. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then embossed it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Next, I die cut the sentiment with My Creative Time – Sentiment Label Dies and edged around the die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough using a dauber. To complete the project, I edged around the remainder of the card with the same Tim Holtz ink.

Sweet Birthday Dreams


Welcome Dreamerland Fans!

Some of you may be new to my blog since Dreamerland Crafts is introducing the 2019 design team and today is my day! I was so excited to be asked to join the Dreamerland team this year.

For my card, I thought the little boy hugging his pillow with his little kitten on his back was adorable! It made me think of making a birthday card with him sleeping and dreaming about all of his wishes coming true.

Dreamerland Crafts – Birthday 08  was used to create the sentiment and  Dreamerland Crafts – ZZZ was used for the image.

 

Here is a close-up of the little boy image:

To make the card, I first die cut the image from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and die cut from Spellbinders Labels 17. Then I stamped the image onto it using my MISTI (Most Incredible Stamping Tool) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Copics were then used to colour the image. I chose a starry background to represent night time for his dreaming! This was die cut with Spellbinders Labels 17 as well and then edged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. Sentiment from Dreamerland Crafts – “ZZZ” was then stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heated with Marvy Heat Embossing Tool.

For the sentiment, I used the die cut from My Creative Time – MCT 224. Sentiment was stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heated with Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough around the border of the die cut.

Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Shabby Shutters was used for edging around the card.

Both the main image and Sentiment were popped up with  3M VHB 2-sided tape.

Thank You Sew Much Card


Hi There!

My parents recently celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary! Such an accomplishment and we are all so proud of them! We had a wonderful celebration with close friends and family.

I wanted to make my parents something special and unique for their special anniversary and I knew a friend who did quilting. I’ve always wanted to learn how to hand quilt and so I approached her and asked her if she would teach me. She agreed and I was super excited, I was going to learn how to do quilting.

First thing!!!!! I have a lot more respect for all of you quilting ladies and gentlemen out there!!! I had no idea how much work went into it! LOL! However, I loved the final result and so did my parents and family and that made it all worth it!

As a thank you to my friend Marilyn who graciously put up with all my questions and who assisted me on how to cut the fabric and line it up as well as doing the 3 layer sandwich and then sewing the border, I made her this little thank you card.
