Miss You!!


Today, I’m sharing a slim-line card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Meow Meow 04 – D20016 for the main image and for the sentiment Just A Note To Say – DCS17038Dreamerland Crafts. Love this new set and I as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make a card to show how a lot of us are feeling right now during these Covid times missing family and friends.

To make this card I used a base card of 7″ x 8.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored it at 3.25″.  Next, using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Marquee Die, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.  Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped all of the images onto the shaped die cuts and coloured them in with Copic markers.

The frame die cut was coloured using Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. The sentiments were stamped and embossed onto black cardstock using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat set using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. My cutter was used to cut the stamped sentiments into small strips. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of each of the sentiments.

To assemble the card, I first turned the die cuts upside down and used a little bit of Scotch Tape on the back side to keep the inserts in place. Then, I applied double-sided tape across the entire back and attached it directly to the card base. I attached each of the sentiments and finished off the card with Crafts – Rhinestone Stickers.

Birthday Presents and Cake!!


Sharing a birthday card that I made for a friend using a digital image from Polkadoodles called Cake Time Digi – Winnie Celebrations 2. I really love this awesome collection.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and then printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer using High Quality Grayscale. I found this to be the best setting as it doesn’t smudge when you colour. Next, I used Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Oval dies to die cut the image out. The image was coloured in with Copic markers.

Using Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones – 5.5″ x 4.25″ cardstock as the base. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. All of the edges of the card were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry.

3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the die cut and attached directly to the base. Lastly to finish off the card, I added some Crafts – Rhinestone Stickers.

Purr-fect Day!!


Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Meow Meow 03 – D20015. This little kitten is having an amazing day, getting up early, playing, relaxing and then saying her prayers for the next day to be the same all over again. If we could all live the life of a spoiled kitten, life would be amazing! LOL!

To make this card I used a base card of 6.5″ x 8.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored it at 3.25″.  Next, using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Pillows Die, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and Recollections – Petite Floral – Double Sided paper.  Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped all of the images onto the various shaes and coloured them in with Copic markers. I created the sentiment using a ruler and Pigma Micron 03 black marker.

To assemble the card, I applied glue to the back of the patterned paper and attached it directly to the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry was used to ink around all of the outside and inside edges of the die cut. For all of the images and sentiment, I first ran them through my Xyron Creative Station to turn them into stickers. Also, this would give me full coverage to lay them flat. I inserted each of them into their respective places of the die cut.

Birthday Girl!!


Sharing image and sentiment from KLM Digital Designs today from the new February release called Karah’s Cupcake. This stamp set comes with 3 sentiments. This image brings back memories of when I was little and my mom used to bake us fancy cakes and cupcakes for our birthdays every year.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5″ x 3.6″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I had a few issues with her hair using my markers, so I used PrismaColor pencils to try and fix it. For the shadow behind the girl, I just used the same 2 markers several times on the background wall. I die cut some pink cardstock using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set and then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry.

I used Hot Buy Recollections Card base of 5.25″ x 4.25″ for the base and attached the die cut directly to the base using double-sided tape. The completed image was popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish off the card.

More Bubbles!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a fun card using  Burts Bath – R103 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Filled With Bubbles – H119 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Burt sure looks happy as he’s letting all of his troubles float away! LOL!

To make my card this week, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock for my base folded at 5.5″ x 4.25″. For the main background, I used Doodlebug Design Inc. – Under The Sea paper cut to the same size as the base and attached it using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry was used to ink around all of the edges. Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Pillows Die was used to cut out the shape for the sentiment and Die-Namics My Favourite Things – PCD Fishtail Figs STX for the flag behind the sentiment. I inked around the edges of the sentiment die cut with Copic Marker – BV04 to frame it. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers was used to ink around the edges of the flag. Avery Elle – Wonky Stitches Die was used to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.

I stamped the image and sentiment using Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI and coloured in the image using Copic markers. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the coloured image and attached it to the base card. I ran the flag through my Xyron Create a Sticker as I wanted it to lay completely flat against the background. I attached this to the base and then added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the sentiment and attached it over top of the flag and the base. To complete the card, I added a few bubble embellishments from The Robin’s Nest – Peony using Ranger Glossy Accents.

When You Believe!


Today, I’m sharing an inspirational card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called When You Believe – D20007. I’ve been told that to become a ballet dancer it takes a lot of hard work and practice. This can also be said for many other professions as well. The overwhelming feeling of success and joy when one achieves their goals is always worth the hard work.

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I printed out the background using my HP Printer and pattern from Nana Vics Digitals – Ballerina #1 Digital Paper. I cut it the same size as the base card and used double-sided tape to attached it on top. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry was used to ink around all of the edges.

I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the image. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Then, I cleaned off the stamp and stamped the sentiment again, this time using VersMark ink. I added Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I fussy cut around the sentiment and used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry ink to ink around the edges. The image was then centred over the fancy rectangle I die cut using DIY Scrapbooking Artist – Nested Stitched Scallop Rectangle Dies using glue.

To assemble the card, I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the backs of the large triangle and sentiment. These were both attached directly to the patterned background. Lastly, to complete the card, I used some Craftin’ Desert Divas – Sherbet Sequins for embellishments.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment:  When You  Believe – D20007 (Dreamerland Crafts)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry, VersaMark, HP Printer – Colour

When You Love Someone!


Today, I’m sharing a Valentine’s card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called When You Love Someone – D20005. I just love this adorable couple. This image could also be used for an Anniversary card too!

To make this card I used a base card of 6″ x 6″ using AC White cardstock. I added the base background using the paper from Stampin’ Up! – Have a Cuppa with double-sided tape. Then, I die-cut 4 hearts using my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Worn Lipstick and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough were used to colour around the edges of the card and also all of the hearts.

I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image. 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 onto the smallest heart.

To assemble the card, the largest heart was attached directly to the base background using glue. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the backs of the remaining hearts and coloured image and then layered them on top of each other. To complete the card, I added in some hearts from Jot – Jewel Stickers.

Birthday Belle!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a CAS card featuring Birthday Belle – T076 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with the sweet sentiment Bummer – H263 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). Our birthday girl this week isn’t too keen on having another birthday to remind her how old she is, but she is still having fun blowing out all of the candles. LOL! I decided to colour her outfit and cake pink, because I remember how much my grandmother loved that colour.

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out die and my Cutttlebug were used to cut out the main coloured image and the hot pink background paper.

For the base card I cut some yellow cardstock 10″ long by 5″ high. It was then scored and folded in half to be 5″ x 5″. All of the edges for the base card and die-cuts were then inked around using the various Tim Holtz Distress inks listed below. I mounted the hot pink cardstock directly to the base using double-sided tape. Then the main image was popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, to finish it off, I used some crafty dots by Crafts.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Birthday Belle – T076 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Bummer – H263 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough

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.

Wine Birthday Divas!!!


Sharing a birthday card today that I made for my aunt using Wine Divas – SC0677 (AI Art Impressions) for both the images and sentiments. My aunt is into crafts and cardmaking too and sometimes when I stay over at her house, we like to share a bottle of wine together, talk and laugh. That is why when I saw this stamp set, I knew I had to make this special card for her birthday. LOL!

To make this card, I used my MISTI to get a nice clean stamped image using Memento – Tuxedo Black and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next I die-cut out the stamped image using my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214). I cut the background paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe at 5.5″ x 4.25″ and mounted it onto top of a white card base 5.5″ x 4.25″. I then inked around all of the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. Before, popping up the base image onto the background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I used my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder to add in the sentiment. I heat set the embossing powder with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

For the inside of the card, I mounted the background paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe – 6″ x 6″ paper pad onto a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then, I fussy cut around the image and attached it to the card base using 2 sided tape. I embossed the sentiment to finish off the inside.

Birthday Girl! We Need To Put the Shades On!


Sharing a birthday card today that I made using Sunny Shades Set – SC4988 (AI Art Impressions) for both the image and sentiment.

To make this card, I used my MISTI to get a nice clean stamped image using Memento – Tuxedo Black and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next I die-cut out the stamped image and background papers using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers.

I mounted the background paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe – 6″ x 6″ paper pad onto a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then, I popped up the next layer using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I mounted the main coloured image onto some Hotpink cardstock and then cut a narrow edge around it. Lastly, I popped up it up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

May Your Day Be Filled With Love!!


It’s Wednesday, and I’m back this week to start off April with lots and lots of love from Elmer the Elephant using Elmer Elephant – Q043 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Large Filled With Love – H004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. With everything happening in the world right now, I think we could all use a little bit of love. When I was a child, Elmer was also called Elmer the Safety Elephant, so I hope that you and all of your loved ones are keeping safe right now too!

To make this card I first die cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) and my Cuttlebug. Next I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the image and the sentiment. I coloured in the image using Copic markers. Then I created my own background using a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Festive Berries, Spun Sugar and Picked Raspbery and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Happy Hearts Stencil. I also did all around the edges with the Picked Raspberry. Lastly, added in the bottom border of hearts using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted which I ran through my Cuttlebug twice with 2 different red cardstock. Then I inlayed the lighter colour into the darker hearts. I had also ran the cardstock through my Xyron Create a Sticker beforehand to make the die-cut work like a sticker and easy to inlay. I also used one of the small hearts for the “o” in “Love” and added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen – Red Berry on top of it. Finally, I mounted the finished image onto a white base card 5.5″ x 4.25″.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Elmer Elephant – Q043  (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Eek! You’re How Old???


Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made for my sister-in-law whose nickname is “Kitty”. I have a lot of fun trying to come up with new creations with cats for her birthday each year. This year, I decided to use Going Catty – DP1021 (Clearly Whimsy Stamps), for my main image on the front of the card. Shown below is how it looked before I placed the die cut from Peek A Boo Poppers (YNSD219) – (#Your Next Die) over top of it.

To create the die-cut, I first used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the main image and then again to cut out the pop-out die cut using Echo Park Paper Co. – Imagine That. I then added glue all around the outside of the circle and glued the two pieces together as shown below.

I created a card base 5.5″ x 4.25″ and then mounted paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe. I popped up the circle previously cut out with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I used the sentiment from the same Whimsy Stamp Set. I embossed it using VersaMark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I cut it out using Ribbon End Dies – My Creative Time. Lastly, I edged around all of the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. Shown below is the card with the pop-up closed.

This is the front of the card with the pop-up open.

On the inside of the card, I used the image from Birthday Critters – 30-466 (Penny Black) and sentiment from
Whatnot Sentiments Set Twelve – CYNS638 (#Your Next Stamp).

All images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI.

Birthday Wishes!


Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made for my mom using Yummy Cupcake Bunny (CYNS592) (#Your Next Stamp) on the front of the card and  Rosie Rabbit Gift (CYNS542) (#Your Next Stamp) on the inside of the card.

On the inside:

To make the card I stamped the images on to Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black and my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to get a nice clean crisp image. After colouring the images, I fussy cut around them both. I then used My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies to die cut an oval out of Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe paper. I cut the remainder of the paper to be 4″ x 5.25″ and turned it over to the opposite side and mounted it onto a card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry to ink around the edges.

For the sentiments I used Versa Fine Onyx Black and VersaMark ink and then embossed both with Ranger embossing powders listed below.

To complete the card, I mounted the bunny on the front with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop it up as well as the sentiment.

Spring is here!


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share these adorable hedgehogs who are so excited to smell the beautiful spring blossoms growing on the trees. I used Hedgies Spring Loaded (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) to create the scene. I added a little bit more to the tree off to the side.

I thought it would be fun to try colouring this stamp using various watercolour mediums and brushes.

I started off by stamping the image onto Arches Watercolour Paper, 140 lb. Cold Press.

Then I used a mixture of Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Derwent Watercolour pencils and a paint palette.

I created the clouds by using a cotton ball and soaked into a little bit of water and then tapping it onto the paper to lift some of the watercolour. Finally, I used Pigma Micron 02 Archival Ink Pen to outline the flowers and the Hedge Hogs. For the noses, I used a Sakura Glaze – Black Pen.

Supplies Used:

Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers: Chocolate, Sepia, TerraCotta

Derwent Watercolour Pencils: Brown Ochre 57, Raw Sienna 58, Copper Beach 61, Vandyke Brown 55

Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Ground Espresso, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Gathered Twigs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry, Krafty Kolours – Totally Taupe Mini Ink Cube

Ai Watercolor Essentials Palette

Background Paper: Recollections – Petite Floral – Double Sided 12 x 12 in (30.4 x 30.4 cm)

MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool

Brushes: Talkon H.I. Series – 970 White – #4, Legacy – Folk Art 1837 Perfect Liner #1, Bette Byrd “Aqua-Sable” 1600 Filbert 1\4

Ribbon: Ribbon Trends – Organdy Ribbon 029 White

Hope you like it and have a fantastic week!
