Carrot Express!!!


It’s Wednesday, and Easter is quickly approaching. So for this week, I used Carrot Express – S055 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Canadian Easter Greetings – H139 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To put this card together, I first die-cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Next, I stamped the image with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink using my MISTI to get a nice clean image. I put the die-cut back over the image again and used it for a template to get a nice clean white border. I created a mask out of the image and used the die-cut from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean to create the sky background.

I mounted the plaid paper from Recollections – Easter Paper onto a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″and then edged around the image and card with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and embossed the sentiment using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet and VersaMark.

Lastly, I popped up the image onto the card using 3M – VHB 2-sided tape and added in some Kraftin’ Kimmie Pastel Krafty Dots.

Easter Masterpiece!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I used High Hopes Rubber Stamps Bunny Masterpiece – S063 for the main image and Egg-Stra Special -G243 for the sentiment. These little bunnies are getting prepared for Easter. I remember making painted eggs every year in the kitchen with my mom and brothers as a child. Do you have an Easter tradition of painting eggs too?

To create the card I coloured in the image and then popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I also popped up the sentiment. I found some old cardstock and cut out some of the little eggs and then edged around each of them with various Tim Holtz colours listed below. The card is 6″ x 6″.

Sending Smiles!


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. This cheery little girl is hoping to bring smiles to everyone she knows and hopefully put a smile on your face too. She’s already for Spring! Are you??? I know I am. LOL!

To make this card, I started out with a 6″ x 6″ card base and then mounted the background onto the card. I cut the ovals and scalloped oval using my Cuttlebug and die cut from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. The sentiment was cut out using My Creative Time – Ribbon End Dies.

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.
