Have A Beary Special Day!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made with Dreamerland Crafts stamp called With My Love – D19024. This little bear is on his way to wish someone a “Beary Good Birthday”!

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the image and background with Copic markers and then used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around it.

I cut out at rectangle 4.25″ x 5.5″ from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper and then I used various dies and Tim Holtz inks to create the background. I have listed them below. I had die cut templates using the dies which makes it really easy to create the backgrounds.

I stamped the sentiment from Jaded Blossom – Forest Friends using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI onto some Turquoise Cardstock. I used Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Next, I edged around the background sentiment outer edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Peacock Feathers. I went around the main image outline with Copic Markers – B000 and YG03. Then, I popped up the image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added in some balloons which I die-cut using Your Next Stamp – Mini Balloon Trio Die Set and drew little strings from them.

Card Recipe:

Birthday Banner Gnome


Today I’m sharing Banner Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) from KLM Digital Designs new release. I thought it would be fun to put the new banner stamp inside a banner. This was such an awesome stamp to play with and it comes with 3 different sentiments, “Happy Birthday” as shown here, “Your Awesome” and “Congratulations”.

When I first started colouring this card, I had something totally different in mind for how I was going to colour the scroll. But, once I created the background, I decided to colour it using bluish green tones for the top and bottom of the large scroll.

I printed out the main image twice onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I always print using Grayscale because the image won’t smudge when you go to colour. I found that printing out in black sometimes did. I used my brother Scan N’ Cut to cut around 1 of the images. Then fussy cut it where I still needed to. As I mentioned, once before, I’m still learning how to use my new machine.

For the other image, I die cut around it using Penny Black – Paper Scroll and my Cuttlebug. I coloured in the main image with copics. Then I placed the other image that I had cut around earlier over top of it to use it as a mask. I also used some Post-It Note paper to mask off the top and bottom of the main scroll. I used a Picket Fence Studio’s brush and went over the entire background inside the scroll with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass. Then, I placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Confetti Stencil over top of everything. I have a large magnetic mat, so I just used some strong magnets to hold everything in place. Then, using the various sized Picket Fence Studio brushes which I labelled in various colours, I used a mixture of Tim Holtz inks to create the background. All of the colours are listed below.

I removed all of the masked pieces and then completed the colouring of the large scroll.

Lastly, I attached the entire image to some Recollections Purple Passions cardstock cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″ and added some small balloons which I had die cut previously using Your Next Stamp – Mini Balloon Trio Set.

Card Recipe:

Aged to Perfection!!!


Sharing a card today that I made using Big Birthday Wishes – SC0794 (AI Art Impressions) for both the image and sentiment.

To make this card, I used my MISTI to get a nice clean stamped image using Memento – Tuxedo Black and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next I die-cut out the stamped image and background papers using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I then inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers.

I mounted the background paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe – 6″ x 6″ paper pad onto a card base of 5.5″ x 5.5″. Then, I popped up the next layer using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I mounted the main coloured image onto some Hotpink cardstock and then cut a narrow edge around it. Lastly, I popped up it up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Miss Kate Cuttables – Guest Designer


 

 

Surprise!  I’m a guest designer for Miss Kate Cuttables again this year! Miss Kate Cuttables offers awesome freebie designs everyday and I always look forward to them. I also love their designs and their new paper is great too! I just had to have it as it goes so well with their designs!

I LOVE Christmas and make over 55 cards every year to give to family and friends. I thought why not start early this year and so I made a Christmas themed card for my guest spot.

Using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space I uploaded Miss Kate Cuttables “boy-winter-deer-1016” (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/boy-winter-deer.php). I thought he was sooo cute! Added some Ranger Glossy Accents to his nose and eyes.  Wink of Stella – GL Green 040 was used on the ear muffs.

Here is a close-up of the little reindeer.

 

Also, uploaded one of my all time favourite trees from Miss Kate Cuttables – snowy-tree-10-07-15 (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/freebie-of-the-day-snowy-tree.php). I’ve used this tree on so many of my cards. Added some glitter with Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.

The background paper is from Miss Kate Cuttables – “mkd-winter-woodland-paper-collection” – winter woodland reindeer.jpg (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/winter-woodland-paper-collection.php). Printed out the digital image on my HP Printer and then sized it to 6″ x 6″ and edge around the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint.

Behind the reindeer the paper is from American Crafts – Holiday collection – 6 x 6″ (15.2 cm x 15.2 cm). Used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to cut out the square and then edged around the sides of the small square with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers

The hills were made with Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper – 8.5″ x 11″ and Lawn Fawn – Lawn Cut dies.  Then used  Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass along the tops of the hills.

“Merry Christmas” ribbon is by Celebrate It!

Miss Kate Cuttables, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your guest design team again this year. It truly is a great honour and it made me so happy!
