HoHoHoHoHo!!


Today I’m sharing  Santa Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) image from the new November release. This adorable little Gnome comes with 3 different sentiments. “Believe In The Magic”, “Happy Holidays” and “Christmas Blessing”.

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers. The background was die cut using Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper and Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper. I coloured the vines and leaves from the Hammermill die cut with various Tim Holtz Distress inks listed below and then fussy cut them out. Glue was applied to the reverse side of the die cut and then it was placed on top of the original Glitz Paper die cut. Crafts – Self-Adhesive Rhinestones were then applied to the berries on the vine.

For the background, I used the Hammermill paper to create a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then I applied Crafts – Sparkling Stickers red paper to the base. I then adhered the vine and frame directly to the background using glue. Lastly, I die cut the sentiment 5 times using black cardstock and the 1 time with Tonic Studios – Craft Perfect – Onyx Black Pearlescent. I ran all off the die cuts through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make it easier to apply them on top of each other. This created an embossed effect. I then added this on top of the vine base. The main image was then added to the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To finish off the card, I added some Marvy – Liquid Applique to the big pom-pom and heat set it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to puff it up. Lastly, some Stickles – Frosted Lace was added to the hat, cuffs and coat trim.

Dear Santa!


Hi Everyone! I’m participating in the 2020 Cat Lovers Blog Hop (#2020CatLoversHop) this year.

This is my third year joining the fun event. For six years, Her Peaceful Garden has been sponsoring The Cat Lover’s Blog Hop and it is a lot of fun.

Here is a third Christmas card that I have created for the hop using Christmas Kitten – GSD617 (Gerda Steiner Designs) for the main image and sentiment. These little kittens are getting into all kinds of trouble. It reminds me so much of when I had my little fur babies. LOL!

To make my card, I started with a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card the same size and stamped on the fun images. Copic markers were used to colour the images in. Once this was done, I stamped the sentiments using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and applied Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder which I heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.  I adhered the completed image to the base using double-sided tape. To finish off the card, I used some Clear – Wink of Stella to add a little bit of sparkle to all of the baubles and Stickles – Diamond for the hats.

THANK YOU so much to Her Peaceful Garden for hosting this event again this year and also a big THANK YOU to Gerda Steiner Designs for being a sponsor this year as well.

Butterfly Kisses!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Bessie Buggies Bloom – S173 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Butterfly Kisses – D007 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Bessie is all set for Spring and flowers blooming. I’m not very good with flowers, but my husband has a green thumb and is really good at keeping our flower garden looking beautiful every year.

To make this card I started off with a base card of 6″ x 6″. I fell in love with this background paper as it suited the sentiment and the darling little butterfly “Bessie” so well. I tried to colour Bessie’s wings and outfit to match the colours of the other butterflies in the background.

Once the image was coloured, I added some Wink of Stella – Clear to the wings. Unfortunately, it doesn’t show up in the picture. I die cut the finished image using my Cuttlebug and circle dies and then I die cut a black circle to layer it onto. I thought this made the image pop. I stamped the sentiment and also layered that onto some black cardstock. I then popped up the sentiment and the image with 3M VHB – 2 sides tape. To finish off the card, I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Bessie Buggies Bloom – S173 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Somebunny Loves You


Hi Dreamerland Fans!

Today I’m sharing a card that I made using a new release stamp from Dreamerland Crafts called I Believe in Love.  I decided to make this an inspirational card because I loved the way the little girl was hugging her bunny with such affection.

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool and Memento – Tuxedo Black. Then the image was coloured in with Copic markers. For the background I used Canson Watercolour Paper and first layered the grass area with multiple Tim Holtz green shades of ink listed below and then the sky with Tim Holtz blue shades of ink. Lastly, to finish the grass, I used a Rake brush and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles and some water. For the clouds in the sky, I used a cotton ball, cotton swab and some water. Lastly I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark and embossed it with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail.

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!

Shake Your Ba-Donkey-Donk!


Hi There,

I’m excited to tell everyone that I’ve been accepted as a Card Designer for One Crazy Stamper High Hopes Stamps. Yay!!!

Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using a combination of High Hope Rubber Stamps – Party Donkey S113, Brayden’s Backside T066 and Warm Wishes S016. When I first saw the 2 donkey stamps, I knew just what I was going to do with them and it made me giggle just thinking about it! LOL! I hope that you get a giggle too!

I coloured in the High Hope Rubber Stamp – Party Donkey S113 on the front of the card and the fussy cut around the stamp. The cake is from the High Hopes Warm Wishes S016 stamp. I stamped it out and then fussy cut around it. I made the little flames using some spare yellow cardstock.

 

 

On the inside of the card, I decided to have some fun with the High Hopes – Brayden’s Backside T066. I stamped out the full image and then just the back haunches and tail. I coloured in both images and then fussy cut around them both. I attached the haunches using an Activation Wobble Spring. When you bring it to one side or the other. The butt shakes back and forth! LOL!

Here it is in action:

Winter Polar Bear


Hi There,

Thought I’d share another Christmas card that I just finished for this year. Only about 45 more to go!!!!

PolarBear-TCBJ

To make this card I used the .svg cut from Too Cute By Jessica called Winter Polar Bear – Designer Jessica Owens 2015 and cut it out on my Cricut Explore after I finished uploading the image in Cricut Design Space. Used Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point, General’s Charcoal white for the eyes and Pigma Micron 03 black marker for the eyelashes.

Added some Clear – Wink of Stella on the red portion of the candy cane and  Wink of Stella – Glitter White on the white pieces.

Ranger Stickles Yellow Glitter Glue for the centre of the pointsettia.

Here is a close-up of the bear.

All patterened papers are from Pebbles – Home for Christmas paper pad – 36 papers- 6 x 6 in (15.2 x 15.2 cm).

Inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pine Needles and Memento Dew Drop – Lady Bug ink.

Sentiment is from Popcorn the Bear – Christmas Collection. Also used Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies. Stamped sentiment with Versamark and then used Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail.

My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies were used for framing the bear.

Hope you like it!
