Time to Smell the Flowers!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Daffodil Bunny – SLF006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image from the new August 2020 release and Smell The Flowers – G189 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This adorable little bunny is taking time out to smell the flowers. We have a really nice garden of flowers that my husband takes care of. I’m not a green thumb at all. LOL! It’s always nice to take a moment and enjoy the beauty of them.

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 6″ x 6″. The base background was also cut at 6″ x 6″ using Craft Consortium – Cottage Garden paper and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. I just thought this paper went so well with this adorable image. I added the 2 colours of ribbon with some 2-sided tape and then adhered the entire background paper to the base with 2-sided tape.

The scalloped circle and inside image circle were both die cut using my Cuttlebug and Craftin Desert Diva’s Stitched in Circle Dies. The circle in between the 2 of them was die cut with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles. The edges of the large scalloped circle were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. For the sentiment, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies were used. The die was larger in depth, so I just die cut one side and then turned it around and only put it part way through my Cuttlebug to cut the other edge. It too, was then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. The image was coloured with Copic Markers.

To assemble the remainder of the card, the mid circle was attached directly to the large scalloped circle and then popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The image and sentiment were popped up on top with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape as well.

Stamp: Daffodil Bunny – SLF006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Butterfly Hi!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Butterfly Chick – SLF007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image from the new August 2020 release and Flutter’in By – F004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This little butterfly has decided to take a moment to say “Hi” to this adorable little chick. Have you taken a moment to call someone and just “Hi” today?

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 6″ x 6″. I used the retired die cuts from Craftin Desert Diva’s – Inside Scalloped Squares and a mixture of Momenta – Cardstock and American Crafts – Basics paper for my background. The same die cut was also used to cut the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. The Copic paper was then stamped on with my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers.

For the assembly of the card, I first placed down the large background using 2-sided tape. Then I added in the 1st yellow inset using glue as it was easier to move around and get it into place. Lastly, I added in the last inset for the large scalloped square. For the smaller square, the coloured image and yellow cardstock were turned over and then taped together with some Scotch Tape. Then 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was used to pop it up into the centre of the larger square.

The sentiment was stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black and then die cut with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber was used to go around all of the edges. Then the sentiment was also popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To finish off the card I added on some butterflies and also a few Kraftin’ Kimmie – Polar Dots in a few places.

Stamp: Butterfly Chick – SLF007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Voila! Today is Your Day!


Today I’m sharing this adorable Chef Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) image and sentiments from KLM Digital Designs new release. He has been very busy preparing your special birthday cake full of layers of joy and happiness for your birthday. Enjoy! Calories don’t count on your special day. LOL!

I printed out the main image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I then proceeded to colour in the image with Copic markers. This was my second time colouring him as the first one shifted on the mat of my Brother Scan and Cut and cut half of his hat off. UGH! Good news is I had already listed all of my colours so it was easy to colour him again. The joys of crafting. LOL!

For the main background, I used a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I used Echo Park – Let’s Party paper to create the background. I cut one piece at 5.5″ x 3″ and the other at 5.5″ x 1.5″ to give me some play room when I layered them onto the base card. I also edged around the background paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Cracked Pistachio.

Once the image was coloured in, I used my Brother Scan and Cut to create a pattern so that I could layer the finished image on top of it. I also used the same cutter to create the thin border around the image. For the sentiments, I fussy cut both of them and then layered them onto some yellow and black cardstock. I edged around the yellow cardstock with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber.

I popped up the image and sentiments with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card and added in a few Kraftin’ Kimmie Krafty Dots.

Birthday Wishes!!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamp Together for the Holidays – DS19048 for my main image and Birthday 08 – DS17059 (Dreamerland Crafts) for the sentiment.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I die cut X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and die cut from Papercraft Inspirations. Then I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. The original stamp also has snowflakes. I removed them for this card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I used the same die cut to make the frame using Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629. I also used the same paper for my base background colour.

I used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut Echo Park Paper Co. – Happy Birthday Girl paper and then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. Next, 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. Then I adhered this to the base of the card. Lastly, I used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop up the image and added a few pop dots from Kraftin’ Kimmie to complete the card.

Spring is just around the corner!

It’s Wednesday, and for today’s card I used Andreas Kitties – R202 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Sending Smiles – G276 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

For the main image, I used Copic markers to colour it all in. I fussy cut around the image and then traced around all of the edges using my black Copic marker. I edged around all of the borders of the die cuts with various Tim Holtz distress inks. I assembled the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To add the last finishing touch to the card, I added in some flowers along the side and a pearl in the centre for all of the yellow flowers.

Happy 60th Birthday!


Hi One Crazy Stamper Fans!

Hello There! My brother turned 60 this year and so I had to have some fun with his card. LOL!  I thought the background paper was perfect for his card with all those candles.

I used the stamp from High Hopes Rubber Stamps called “Birthday Bob” and coloured in the image with Copic markers. I tried to colour the candles to match the background paper.

The sentiment was created in Microsoft Word using Cooper Black font and then printed out on my printer. Then I die cut it with My Creative Time – Stitched Circle Balloon Dies using my Cuttelbug and completed the edging around the balloon with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber.

The main image and co-ordinating rectangles were all die cut with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set.

On the inside of the card I loved the sentiment:  Birthday Emergency (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Firefighter Dragon (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). My brother is also a Firefighter so I couldn’t resist the temptation! LOL!

He loved his card and I hope you do too!

Puppy Birthday Card


Hi There,

Sharing a birthday card that I made using Whimsy Stamp – Cupcake Bliss on the front of the card.

Here is a close-up:

Background Paper – DCWV – The Birthday Wishes Stack – 6 in. x 6 in., Momenta – Cardstock

Inked around edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mermaid Lagoon and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber.

Used some Yellow and White twine.

Die cut using – Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214).

On the inside used Whipper Snapper Designs, Inc. – #MY928 – Relax to the Max. – Fell in love with this stamp and thought it went so great with the dog on the front of the card.

Stamped images using my “Misti” and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.  Coloured in the images using a mixture of Spectrum Noir and Copic markers.

Hope you like it!

Entered into Whimsy stamps Challenge 95 Anything Goes with a twist of Flowers.
