Sorry You’re Hurting!!


Sharing a card I made using Clearly Whimsy Stamps – Get Well Dragons – DP1034 for a colleague that had a knee operation recently. I wanted to make a fun card to cheer him up a bit and thought this was the perfect image to make it happen.

To make the card, 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 using Copic markers and then fussy cut around it leaving a thin white border. I stamped all of the sentiments onto black cardstock using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail powder. The embossing powders were all heated with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The smaller sentiments were all die cut using my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals. For the background, I used my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Rounded Tags dies to die cut the background paper – Asuka Studio – Sparkly Sky and black cardstock. I die cut the grass using Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders and Sizzix Rounded Tags. I inked the top border of the grass with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint.

The card was now ready to assemble. I started with a base card of 5.5″ x 4.5″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. I applied double-sided tape to the back of the black die cut, The patterned paper and the grass cut and applied them all directly to the card. I ran 2 of the “Ouch!” die cuts through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached them to the top of the card.  Using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I popped up the image and 2 other sentiments to finish off the card.

Think Snow!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Snowman Stumble – TT014 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Think Snow 2 – FF047 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I grew up skating at the outdoor rink directly across the street from my house. We couldn’t wait to get home from school and throw on our skates. The rinks were always full of children from the neighbourhood. We would either play rink games or hockey. I think there was a rink every couple of blocks. As soon as we’d finish eating, we were back on the ice again. Our parents were always yelling at us to come inside at the end of the day. How times have changed. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies were used to die cut Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper to be the same size as the base card. With a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, I created the background sky. I applied this directly to the glitter background paper. Once this was done, I applied this directly to the base using double-sided tape. Next, Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD001 – Mountains were used to die cut the tree scenery using Momenta – Cardstock and using a small dauber I added in some darker touches of green using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint. The pond was die cut using Whimsy Stamps – Wavy Nested Frame Dies Set and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I inked the image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. Lastly, I die cut the sentiment using Joy Crafts – Labels and Tags and inked around the edges with my Picket Fence – Blending Brush and the ink that was still on it from doing the sky.

I coloured in the image with Copic markers and added in some highlights on the skate blades with Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen. I inked the image a second time onto the Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper for the snowman body and fussy cut around it. Once it was coloured in with Copics, I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to the base stamped image.

The card was now ready to assemble. Part of the pond was cut off at the top before it was attached it to the sparkly background using glue and double-sided tape. Next, I added some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the trees and applied it over top of where the sky ended and the pond met. To create the snow around the pond and in between the trees, pond and snow, I used Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and added some DecoArt Glamour Dust while it was still wet. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the liquid and make it puff up to look like fluffy snow. I added some Stickles – Diamond to the pompom. Using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point pen, I created the snow in the sky. Lastly, to finish off the card, I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the sentiment and applied it to the card.

Sentiment: Think Snow 2 – FF047 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Hearts Warm!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Toasting Marshmallows – T026 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Hearts Warm – G063 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This image brings back so many memories of going camping and sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows. I gave my image coloured marshmallows, because growing up they were always my favourite! LOL!

To make my card this week, I started with a base of 6″ x 6″ using Recollections – Black cardstock. I taped Echo Park – Star Stencil on top of the cardstock and applied several Cosmic Shimmer – Opal Blaze Polishes using a spatula to create the nice starry background. I wanted my scene to look like the friends were in the woods, so I die cut some trees of various sizes using Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD001 – Mountains and Momenta – Cardstock. Once I die cut the trees, I added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Forest Moss and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint to add some more colour to them. Then, I ran the trees through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make it easier to apply them later. I felt the scene also needed a moon, so I die cut one using Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD002 – Sky and then coloured it in and added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of it and set everything aside.

I stamped my image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. I fussy cut around the top part of the image and then used a ruler to know where to cut the remainder of the bottom piece with my cutter. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then used a black marker to go around all of the fussy cut part of the image and Copic marker – YG67 was used to go around the edges of the grassy area. For the sentiment, I used My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers to cut out the sentiment and background layer. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it directly to the outer frame.

My card was now ready to assemble. I first adhered my starry background to a card base of AC – White cardstock sized at 6″ x 6″ using double-sided tape. Then, I used my coloured image to help me with the placement of where the trees would go. Since, I had already made stickers out of my trees, this was a fairly easy process. Once I was satisfied with their positioning, I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, to the back of the coloured image and sentiment frame and attached them directly to the base card. Lastly, I attached the moon to complete the scene.

Anniversary Gnomes!!


Sharing a card I made today combining the image from KLM Digital Designs April Release called Bride Gnome and image and sentiment from Groom Gnome. These images could be used separately or together and come with multiple sentiments.

To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then I printed them out again on regular copy paper and used my Brother Scan and Cut  to cut around them. I used these as masks over top of the coloured images. Using multiple Tim Holtz inks listed below, I created the sky with a stencil I had created from Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die and grass stencil I created from Lawn Fawn – Grassy Hillside Borders.

For the base card, Recollections – Christmas Cards and envelopes paper was used at the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I die cut the finished coloured image with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) and glued it to the base.

Just a Note To Say!!


Today, I’m sharing an inspirational card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Farm 01 – D20017 and Just A Note To Say – DCS17038 for the main images and Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19093 for the sentiment.

Above is a close-up of the card. Below is the card opened.

To make this card I used a base card of 11″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I scored it at 2.75″ and 5.5″ to create an easel card. I stamped the fence, horses, pig and girl onto Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and fussy cut around them. Then I placed them onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″ for placement.

I removed the fence and using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the girl. I placed the girl mask over top of the stamped girl image and then stamped the fence, chicks, pig and farm house and fields. I stamped a horse and then placed the horse mask over it and stamped a second horse. Next, I removed the masks from the scene. I coloured all of the images and background in with Copic markers. I added double sided tape to the bottom portion of the easel card and attached the coloured image.

My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies were used create the base background and Gina Marie Designs – Petite Looped Lace Rectangle dies were used to create the base for the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink. I added Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Peeled Paint ink was used to ink around the edges of both die cuts.

To complete the card, the large rectangle was added directly to the card using double-sided tape and 2 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape were added to the back of the sentiment die cut and attached to the base card background.

He Is Risen!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Easter Card using  He Lives! – R057 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and He Is Risen! – H137 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I really love the serenity of this image. Here’s hoping that we will get to spend Easter with our loved ones this year.

To make my card this week, I used AC Cardstock for my base folded at 6″ x 6″. For the main background, I used this beautiful paper from Heartfelt Creations – Flowering Dogwood Collections cut to the same size as the base and attached it using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint was used to ink around all of the edges. My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies was used to cut all of the ovals and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die Layers was used to cut the small rectangle. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber was used to ink around the large scalloped oval and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Dusty Concord was used to ink around the larger oval and small rectangle. I used 2 types of purple ribbon and ran both pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make it easier to attach them to each other and then onto the card. I used some double-sided tape and glue to adhere the larger oval to the base. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was used to add the larger oval.

I stamped the image and sentiment using Memento – Tuxedo Black and my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image using Copic markers. For the sentiment, I found the white was too bright, so I coloured over it with a soft purple Copic marker – V01. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the coloured image and placed it on top of the larger oval. For the sentiment, I doubled up on the 3M VHB – 2 sided tape before attaching it to the card.

Ella the Elephant!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using this adorable image from KLM Digital Designs new February release called Ella The Elephant. The image comes with 3 different sentiments. Like so many others, I’ve been missing my family and friends a lot due to Covid lockdowns, so I chose the “Miss You” sentiment for my card. Hopefully, times will get better this year and we’ll be able to see our distant families and friends again.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.

I used AC White Cardstock for the base card size of 6″ x 6″ and ScrapBerry’s Tropics paper for the background. I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station because I wanted it to lay flat on the background. I used my Cuttlebug to die cut the grass using Lawn Fawn – Grassy Hillside Borders and green cardstock. Then I edged around it using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint. I applied double-sided tape to the back of the grass and applied it directly to the base, then I positioned the elephant in front and behind the grass.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Ella The Elephant (KLM Digital Designs)

Inks: HP Printer Grayscale, HP Printer Black, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint

Paper: Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, AC White Cardstock, ScrapBerry’s Tropics – 6×6 Paper Collection, Lime Green cardstock

Dear Santa!


Hi Everyone! I’m participating in the 2020 Cat Lovers Blog Hop (#2020CatLoversHop) this year.

This is my third year joining the fun event. For six years, Her Peaceful Garden has been sponsoring The Cat Lover’s Blog Hop and it is a lot of fun.

Here is a third Christmas card that I have created for the hop using Christmas Kitten – GSD617 (Gerda Steiner Designs) for the main image and sentiment. These little kittens are getting into all kinds of trouble. It reminds me so much of when I had my little fur babies. LOL!

To make my card, I started with a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut some Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card the same size and stamped on the fun images. Copic markers were used to colour the images in. Once this was done, I stamped the sentiments using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and applied Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder which I heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.  I adhered the completed image to the base using double-sided tape. To finish off the card, I used some Clear – Wink of Stella to add a little bit of sparkle to all of the baubles and Stickles – Diamond for the hats.

THANK YOU so much to Her Peaceful Garden for hosting this event again this year and also a big THANK YOU to Gerda Steiner Designs for being a sponsor this year as well.

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.

Hang in There!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I thought I’d make an inspirational card to share with you using Raggedy Ann-ouncement – R044 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Hang In There – D278 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To make my card this week, I started off with a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I created the background on Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock using various stencils, Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes and Tim Holtz inks which I have listed below. I thought the sun rays reflected a ray of hope for everyone and I hope that we will all be seeing better days soon. Once the background was finished, I used 2 sided tape and mounted it onto the base card.

I stamped the image  and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured in the main image with Copic markers. I ran the coloured image through my Brother Scan and Cut to create a slim border around it and then went around the edges with Y06 – Yellow and YG25 – Celadon Green to make it blend into the background. Lastly, I popped up the image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and created a small shadow below Raggedy Ann.

Happy Father’s Day Gnomes


KLM Digital Designs released some brand new stamps this month, and today I’m sharing Dad and Kid Gnomes (KLM Digital Designs)!  This new stamp contains adorable images of a dad, his children and 3 loving sentiments for your father. This stamp allows you to create your card to represent all of your siblings with your dad or just 1 if it is a special card.

For this card, I decided to create a card from a son to his dad.

To put the card together, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the sentiment onto Hammermill Premium Colour paper.

I die cut the Hammermill paper with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set. Then using stencils that I made with Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie, I created the sky using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. For the grassy hillsides, I created stencils using Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders and Lawn Fawn – Simple Stitched Hillside Borders – Lawn Cuts. Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Bundled Sage, Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint to create the colour variations of the hills.

I coloured in the main image with copics and then fussy cut around them. Then I used a black marker to go around all of the edges. I attached the background to some AC White cardstock cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″. Then to finish off the card, I popped up the 2 coloured images with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and placed them onto the background.

Card Recipe:

Herd It Was Your Birthday!!!


KLM Digital Designs has just released some brand new stamps this month, and today I’m sharing Woman Farmer Gnome (KLM Digital Designs)! She’s taking some time out from her chores on this beautiful sunny day to wish you a Happy Birthday.

For this card, I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Greyscale. Then I coloured it in with Copic markers and fussy cut around it. I used a  black marker to go around all of the image to hide the white paper from where I fussy cut it. I couldn’t cut out the portion between the girl and the shovel, so I used my copics to match the background that I created with the Tim Holtz inks.

For the background, I used Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set die and my Cuttlebug to cut Strathmore Bristol Paper (100 lb. – 270 g/m2). Next I created some stencils from Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die and Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders. I used these stencils to create the cloudy background and the fields behind the farm girl using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I had a small scrap strip of patterned paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Down on the Farm and thought it would go perfectly with this card. I applied this to a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base from AC Cardstock – Autumn collection. I printed out the sentiment and fussy cut it to split it up and attached it on top of the base background. I then popped up the colored image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the background that I created earlier. Then I popped up the entire background onto the base card. I added in a few Party Time dots from Kraftin’ Kimmie Dots and inked around the entire card with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint to finish it off.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Woman Farmer Gnome (KLM Digital Designs)

Inks: HP Printer Greyscale, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Crushed Olive, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint

Paper: Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Down on the Farm – 6″ x 6″ paper pad, AC Cardstock – Autumn, Strathmore Bristol Paper (100 lb. – 270 g/m2)

Happy Easter to my Gnomies!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Bunny Painter Gnome and Sentiments Digital Stamp (KLM Digital Designs)! This little Easter Gnome has all of his eggs painted up to give out for Easter. Do you still paint your eggs for Easter too?

To make the card, I printed out the image and sentiment with my HP printer using High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and then fussy cut around it and the sentiment.

For the background, I cut out a piece of Strathmore Bristol paper 5.5″ x 4.25″.  Then with a stencil that I made using Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Pierced Clouds Die, I created the sky using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. For the grass, I used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink Greens – Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, and Twisted Citron. Then I used some water and 1/4 round Sable brush and #1 Fine Liner to create the grass.

I used my Xyrons to create a sticker out of the coloured image and sentiment and then mounted the finished image onto a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using double-sided tape.

Card Recipe:

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.

Woodland Santa

Gone Fishing – Father’s Day


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share a second Father’s Day card this week that I made for my dad using Bear (High Hopes Rubber Stamps), Bait Shop (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Bob Hooked a Big One (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). My dad is an avid Fisherman and from the time he retired years ago, there are very few weeks that go by without him fishing, including winter. LOL!

On the front of my card, I used Bob Hooked a Big One (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). I then fussy cut around the image and mounted it onto some green cardstock and used my Cricut Explore to cut out the lettering.

For the inside of the card, I wanted to try something different and decided to make a pop-up card which I did in several stages.

Stage 1: I cut some green cardstock 12 x 6″ and then mounted 6 x 6″ piece from 49 and Market Tattered Garden onto one half of it. Next, I scored the paper in half and used Stampendous – Pop-Up Stage Die set to cut 3 pop-up levels as seen in the image below. Then I cut just a little off of each side and mounted the die cut piece onto some brown cardstock, cut 12 x 6″. I then used some double-sided pop-up tape to mount the Bait Shop – Bait Shop (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and some double-sided tape to mount the bear – Bear (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) as well.

Here is a close-up of the Bear and Bait Shop.

Stage 2: To create the scene of the bear going through the grass, I used Lawn Fawn – Grassy Hillside Borders. I cut several pieces in various greens and then measured the back pieces to the pop-up that I created earlier. Cutting them at .5 in., 1 in. and 1.5 in. in the centre to fit around the pop-up. I also used some double-sided tape to pop up a few of the die cuts.

Stage 3: Lastly, I typed up an old saying for dad’s on my computer, printed it out and die cut it using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214).

Here is how the inside looks all finished.

Card Recipe:

Stamps:  Bear (High Hopes Rubber Stamps), Bait Shop (High Hopes Rubber Stamps), Bob Hooked a Big One  (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Paper: 49 and Market Tattered Garden – 6 x 6 Collection Pack, Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Brown Cardstock, Various Green Cardstocks, Fish Paper
