Toad-ally In Love!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Toad-ally In Love – M127  for the image and sentiment. I toad-ally love this sweet image because it can be used for both Valentine’s Day, an Anniversary or just to let someone know that you love them.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5″ x 5″. I used Picket Fence – Blending Brushes, Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Festive Berries, Fired Brick and Barn Door and Lawn Fawn – Lots of Hearts Background Stencils to create my card background. Using Lawn Fawn – Valentine’s Hearts Border and my Cuttlebug, I die cut some Craft Smith – Hot Buy – Green and Forever In Time – Texture Rouge cardstock and adhered the 2 pieces together with some glue. I did this twice and then glued the 2 finished pieces to the base card. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I then die cut it using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. The image was coloured in and popped up onto the background using U-line douhble-sided tape. I applied some glue onto the backs of 3 of the pre-cut hearts and placed them onto the base background to complete the card.

Wood You Be Mine??


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs –  Logging Gnome from the new November release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “What Wood I Do Without You” and “Don’t want to get sappy, but I love you!”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. For the base card, AC Cardstock – White was cut to the size of 6″ x 6″. I cut 2 strips to the size of 1.5″ x 6″ from Echo Park Paper Co. – Let’s Lumberjack paper and adhered them to the top and bottom of the base using liquid glue. I cut out the 2 larger hearts using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. I appplied the large heart directly to the base using liquid glue. For the smaller heart, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy was applied using a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. This was then popped up onto the larger heart using U-Line – 2 sided tape. I used by Brother Scan and Cut to create a small white border around the gnome image and coloured him in. Once coloured, I popped him up onto the card using U-Line – 2 sided tape. My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the small hearts from Echo Park Paper Co. – Let’s Lumberjack paper. I ran them through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied them to the card to finish it off.
