Three Kings Bringing Joy


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Christmas card featuring the adorable image Three Kings – T201 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) with the sentiment Joy To The World – GLL012 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).  Have you started your Christmas cards yet?

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it in with Copic Markers. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and then used a black marker to go around all of the edges. For the sentiment, I stamped it out and then used My Creative Time: Fun Vertical Greetings to die cut it.

For the base card I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to create my background at 5.5″ x 4.25″ and also the base card.  I used various Tim Holtz inks listed below to create the night sky and earth at the bottom. After the basic blending was done, I layered Kraftin’ Kimmie – Twinkle Little Stars stencil over top of the base and applied Stampin Up – Whisper White using a sponge dauber. I removed the stencil and cleaned it off. Then placed it on top again. This time, I used a sponge dauber and FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint to give the stars some sparkle. Note: A little dab of this paint goes a long way. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to help speed up the drying process.

Once the paint was all dry, the card was ready to be assembled. I cropped the background to 5.25″ x 4″ and placed it directly onto the base. Then the main image and sentiment were added using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Birthday Girl – Fearless!


Hello There! Sharing a card with you today that I made for a very special co-worker who works non-stop to please everyone in our office as she manages everything from booking flights, creating Purchase Orders, setting up meetings, etc. The list goes on forever. She goes above and beyond her position and we all love her dearly for it. She takes our cubicles apart and rebuilds them all when the need arises or adds in new cubicles for new hires, decorated all of the offices for management and at times you can even see her up on a ladder fixes ceiling tiles or changing lightbulbs. LOL!

So for this year, I just had to make birthday card featuring the stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie called “Fearless Farah“. I used both the image and sentiment from this collection. The sentiment couldn’t have described her any better. LOL!

To create the texture for the brick wall, I ran the Darice – Brick Wall embossing folder through my Cuttlebug using Bristol paper. Then ran Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge across the top of the paper. Next I used a watercolour brush and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tea Dye, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge to create the texture.

To make the sign I first embossed the sentiment and then used Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames die to cut it out. Edged around with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wild Honey.
