Wade Goes To The Beach!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Wade – 132 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Summer’s Day Saying – L031 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Wade couldn’t wait to go the beach. He’s enjoying the waves and the beautiful beach and sunshine. It will be wonderful when we can all join him with our friends and families too!

To make my card this week, I started off with a white card base of 6″ x 6″. I cut out another piece of paper using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock the same size as the base card. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug using Stampin’ Up – Sizzix Big Shot – Seaside. I loved the wavy pattern it created. Next, I used multiple Tim Holtz shades of blue to create the water effect. All colours are listed below.

I used my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and white cardstock for my image and sentiment. I stamped the sentiment and image onto the die cuts and then coloured in the main image with Copic markers. The background was coloured in using a variety of Copic Refill inks, Colorless Blender and a Q-Tip. For the water, I wisped several colours back and forth and then added some Copic Colorless Blender and wisped the colours one last time. Once everything was completed, ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station so that it would lay completely flat on the blue cardstock I mounted it onto. I cut a thin border all away around the image and inked around the edges of the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy.  Then popped the image and the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the base card. I added in a some sea shells from Dress It Up – Beach Collection and Craftin’ Desert Divas – Seashells Sequence. I just removed the button portion and then used glue dots to attach to the card.

Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing Dreamerland Craft Stamps Coordinating Die & Clear Stamp Package (D172906) for Character Stamp D172006 Love The Music From My Guitar and Love The Music From My Guitar – D172006! This little boy loves his guitar and all of the animals love his music.

To make his card, I stamped all of the images using my MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in all of the images using Copic markers and then used my Cuttlebug and all of the die cuts from Coordinating Die & Clear Stamp Package (D172906) for Character Stamp D172006 Love The Music From My Guitar (Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps). I also die cut the sentiment at the same time and stamped it with Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then heat embossed it using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder..

I was now ready to do the background. To achieve this I cut several die cuts using Monte Mart A4 Watercolour Book paper, Lawn Cuts – Simple Stitched Hillside Borders – Lawn Fawn and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214).

For the sky I used several Tim Holtz Blue inks in various shades listed below using a stencil that I had created from Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie. For the grass I used various shades of Tim Holtz green inks – (see below).

I ran all of the die cuts and the back 2 layers of grass through Xyron Creative Station. Then I set them all aside.

I was now ready to assemble my card. I layered the first 2 die cuts onto the main die cut and then popped up the bottom grass cut with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I then added on the characters that I made stickers out of for easy assembly. I popped up the upper half of the little dog with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Once the scene was completed I mounted it onto 5.25″ x 4.25″ white cardstock.

Our Friendship is Magic!


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and for my last High Hopes card for the year, I’m sharing a couple of good friends just relaxing and taking it easy! Sometimes it is nice to just chill out a bit! LOL! The stamp for the main image is called South Pole Pals R147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).

To make my card, I decided to keep it simple. I cut out the frame using Amy Design – Dies – Keep It Cool – Cool Square Frame and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next, I stamped the image using my MISTI into the centre of the die cut. I coloured this in with the Copic markers listed below. For the outside of the die cut, I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China and sponged on the ink using a dauber.

To create the background for the main image, I re-stamped the main image onto Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and fussy cut it out. Then I placed the mask over my coloured image. Next I used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Festive Berries to create the sky. I have never tried this before, and just love the way it turned out.

For the snow, I stamped the bottom of the image with VersaMark ink and then added WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle. I heated up the embossing powder with my heat gun and then added some Stickles – Diamond along the top of the snow.

Next I assembled the card onto 5.5″ x 5.5″ white AC Cardstock. I cut out a piece of 5.5″ x 5.5″ Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper and mounted it with 2 sided tape onto the base. Then I added glue to the back of the frame and centre previously cut and coloured with Zig 2 Way Glue and mounted it onto top of the card.

Lastly, I added the sentiment Magic Friendship F234 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and popped it up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish up the card.

Card Recipe:

Stamp:  South Pole Pals R147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Magic Friendship F234 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Festive Berries, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Faded Jeans, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Wilted Violet, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China, Versamark

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.

Hi Dreamerland Crafts Fans!

Today I’d like to share a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts Photographer stamp from their new release this year. I decided to colour the outfit blue to match the cameras in the background. To create the scene, I also used several of the Dreamland Mix and Match background stamps.

 

 

I used some Canson Watercolour paper and wet it down. Then I stamped on my clouds using Clouds – Dreamerland Crafts Mix & Match Collection stamp and a mixture of Tim Holtz Blue inks which you can find in the list below. For the background blue, I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass, some water and a watercolour brush.

For the greenery Flower Beds – Dreamerland Crafts Mix & Match Collection stamp was used and stamped with a mixture of Tim Holtz greens and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Gathered Twigs. Then I used the watercolour brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet for the flowers and to add in a little more colour below the shrubbery.

I popped up the little girl and bird with some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape after stamping the images with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then colouring the images in with Copic markers.

Background paper and sentiment are from Creative Memories – Shutter Bug collection which I thought was perfect to complete this card.

Note: Using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool allowed me to do the placement of the Mix and Match images with ease.

I hope you like my little photographer! Are you ready to go out and take some pictures now too???
