Better at the Beach!!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Beach Gnome – Girl from the new June 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Good times & tan lines” and “Girls just wanna have sun”.

I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the image again onto regular copy paper. Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug, I die cut the image. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I fussy cut around the image printed out of regular copy paper to create a mask and applied it over top of the coloured image using repositionable tape. Using several Picket Fence – Blending Brushes and multiple Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Krafty Kolours – Sandy Shores, I created the sand, water and clouds using Lawn Fawn – Ocean Waves Stencils, Lawn Fawn – Clippings – Slimline Hillside Stencils and Lawn Fawn Cuts – Cloudy Stencil.

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardsstock. U-Line – 2 sided tape was added to the back of the image and it was popped up onto the base card. To finish the card off, I added in a few seashells using 2 layers of U-Line – 2 sided tape.

Birthday Party Girl!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Party Girl – TDG034 for the image and Open Happy Birthday – G039 for the sentiment. This little girl loves to dance and celebrate! She is ready for a really nice party to share her birthday with all of her friends.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut out the background to the same size using Bubbly Girls – Party – Yvonne Creations cardstock. This was applied directly to base card with double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salvaged Patina was used to ink around all of the edges of the card.

The image and sentiment were both stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured in with Copic Markers. Using my scissors, I fussy cut around both the image and sentiment. For the sentiment, I used a black marker to go around the edges to hide the white. Using Copic markers, I tried to match the background as best as I could for the coloured image to blend in. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to all of the pieces and popped them up onto the base card. Lastly, to finish it off, I added in 3 gumdrops from YNS Gumdrops – Pretty Peacock Matte Gumdrops.
