Dance With Me!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Just Dance With Me – DCS17037. Sometimes just dancing with our partners or friends can bring such joy to us. No matter where you may be, just hear the music and dance no like no one is watching!

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. The sky was created using Lawn Fawn Cuts – Cloudy Stencil, a  blender brush and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Salty Ocean and Broken China. To create the grass, I first cut 2 pieces of DCWV – Pocket Blossom designer paper to the sizes of 5.5″ x 2.5″ and 5.5″ x 1-5/8″.  Lawn Fawn – Grassy Hillside Borders die cuts and my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Cutting Machine were used to die cut the 2 pieces. Using a blender brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness, I inked over top of the blades of grass and then around the other 3 edges.

The main image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and then fussy cut around it leaving a slim white border. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the image. I then placed the image onto the card before removing the tape backing to see where to place the sentiment. Using my MISTI again and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink, I applied the sentiment onto the base card. Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder was then applied to it and it was heat embossed with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

The final pieces of the card were now ready to assemble. I peeled off the tape backings from the large die-cut and added some liquid glue to allow me to move it into the correct position over top of the grass I had placed down earlier onto the base card. After popping up the top grass cut, I then repeated the same process and popped up the image in between the blades of grass. Finally, I added in some butterflies from the same stamp set using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet. I had made them lighter by first stamping off of the page and then onto the card.

AHH – 60!!


Sharing a birthday card I made for a friend using Art ImpressionsAHH Set – A4671 and Rock On Laugh Lines – 5422. I was late getting this birthday card out to my friend as usual and this face says it all. LOL!

To make the card, I began with the base of 8.5″ x 7″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock, scored and folded to the size of 8.5″ x 3.5″. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. Once the images were coloured, I fussy cut around them both. For the blouse, I stamped the image again onto DCWV – Pocket Blossom paper and paper-pierced it onto the image after I had run it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. For the image on the front page, a black marker was used to outline all of the edges.

For the front of the card, I die cut 3 balloons using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine, Concord & 9th – Pop-Up Par-Tay dies and Pergamano Parchment Paper – Rainbow Pastel and 1 balloon out of a spare piece of patterned paper to use for the inside of my card. The numbers were cut from Recollections – Black cardstock using my cutting machine and Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts – Henry’s 123s. To create the background, I used multiple Tim Holtz Distress inks listed below, multiple brushes and Lawn Fawn – Confetti Stencils to create the background on the base card front.  The sentiment was stamped with a MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. Then, I fussy cut around it.

The front of the card was now ready to assemble. I ran each of the numbers through my Xyron Create a Sticker and the balloons through my Xyron Creative Station. The numbers were then placed onto the balloons. I attached the first 2 balloons to the card and then drew in the strings with a black marker. I then added the last balloon and drew another string. A white pencil was used to create a bit of glow along the left side of the balloons. After attaching U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the sentiment and the image, I popped them up onto the front of the card.

Inside of the card: 

For the inside of the card, I used Rock On Laugh Lines – 5422 – Art Impressions, Dance It Out Set – 5278 – Art Impressions, Be Happy Laugh Lines – 5279 – Art Impressions for the sentiments. I cut out 3 sentiment bubbles using Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine, Spellbinders – Die D-Lites Conversation Bubble 3 Etched Dies out of white cardstock. I stamped each of sentiments using a MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. I ran each of the sentiment bubbles and my image through my Xyron Creative Station.

The inside of the card was now ready to assemble. I placed the 1 bubble sentiment at the top of the card and then using my image as a guide for placement, I attached the patterned balloon to the card first. The image was attached on top of it and then I added the bottom bubble sentiment. Lastly, I placed the final bubble sentiment to the card in between the other top 2 bubble sentiments to complete the card.

Thankfully, she loved her card and I hope you do too!

Smooth Sailing Ahead!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Wishing you a smooth sailing ahead – DCS1703. This card could be used to wish someone smooth sailing for cruising, retirement or for a new job position or even if you knew someone who just bought a new boat for fun! The stamp set also comes with 2 more sentiments, “on a Journey to find Happiness” and “Taking a break from my daily routine”.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Black cardstock was die cut to the size of 4.75″ x 3.5″ using Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. Using the same machine and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to the size of 4.5″ x 3.75″. The main image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the images again onto Post-It Note paper to create a mask and fussy cut around them. After stamping the main image, I placed the masking of the little girl in the boat on top of the inked image as shown below.

I stamped the mountains starting from the left side, while still using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The mountain mask was applied over top of them and I stamped another set of mountains so that they looked like they were behind the first set of mountains. I continued to do this going across the image to create a mountain range. Then, I removed all of the masks and coloured in the image using copic markers.  Copic – Opaque White was used to create the crests of the waves and Stampin’ Up – Whisper White Ink and a small #2 round brush were used to create the clouds in the sky. Versamark, my MISTI and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail were used to add in the birds from the same stamp set. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat emboss the powder. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the black rectangle.

Using my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder, I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat emboss this as well. Using Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, I die cut the sentiment with a 1.25″ circle. With a 1.5″ circle punch, I die cut Recollections – Black cardstock. I added U-Line double-side tape to the back of the sentiment and popped it up onto the larger black circle. I added a double layer of the U-Line double-side tape to the right of the black rectangle on each side and popped up the larger black circle to the bottom right of the card. YNS Gumdrops – Ice Ice Baby Sparkly Gumdrops were added to the top left corner of the card to finish it off.

Ex-Cuse Me!!


Sharing a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law this year using C.C. DesignsRoberto’s Rascals – Grouchy Pets and Roberto’s Rascals – Cutie Cats. Her name is Kitty and I always try to find fun images with cats to make her card. LOL!

To make the card, I began with the base of 3.5″ x 8.5″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. I also die cut the Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock with the Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Marquee Die and my Cuttlebug. Using multiple Picket Fence – Blending Brushes and Tim Holtz Distress Inks listed below, I created my own background. Using the window pieces from the die cut, I traced around them onto Doodlebug – hey cupcake (6″x6″) paper and fussy cut around them. I applied some glue along the edges and attached them to the back of the panel.  Then I applied double-sided tape to the backing and attached this to the base.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. Once everything was coloured, I fussy cut around each of them. The sentiments were stamped onto Recollections – Black cardstock with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Using my cutter, I cut around each of the sentiments. I added double-sided tape to the back of the images and sentiments and popped them all up onto the base card. Finally, I added some Kraftin’ Kimmie Pop Dots.

Inside of the card: 

For the inside of the card, I used my large MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the sentiments from Art Impressions Glamour Pop-Ups – 5355 and Purrrfect Sentiments – HoneyBee Stamps. I ran the little kitty from the Roberto’s Rascals – Cutie Cats – C.C. Designs set that I had coloured earlier through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it directly to the card to finish everything off.

Thankfully, she loved her card and I hope you do too!

Rain or Shine!


Sharing a card I made today using Penny Black Stamps – Rain or Shine. My husband and I always celebrate the first day that we started going out together and also our wedding anniversary each year. Yesterday, marked 36 wonderful years together. We had bears on the top of our wedding cake, so I thought it would be great to make him a card with bears to celebrate our special day.

To make my card, I started out with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock to create a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug, I die cut a small rectangle into the front of the card. For the raindrops, I first applied some Post-It tape down the centre of the card and then applied Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass with a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. I placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Rainy Day Stencil over top of this blue section and this time I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. I removed the stencil and the Post-it Note tape and covered the centre where the blue colour ended. Using a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Squeezed Lemonade, I applied yellow to the entire right side of the card. Lastly, I placed Kraftin’ Kimmie – Starburst Stencil over top and using the same brush, I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mustard Seed. I die cut the word “Happy” using My Creative Time – Happy Everything Stamp Set and Recollections – Black cardstock. Lastly, using a sentiment from the same stamp set, I stamped and heat embossed the word “Anniversary” using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Here is the inside of the card.

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I die cut it using Lawn Fawn – Zig Zag Square Stackables and coloured in the image with Copic markers. Using my MISTI again, I heat embossed the sentiment onto Recollections – Black cardstock using VersaMark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Gina K. Designs – Master Layouts – #9 was used to die cut the sentiment. I applied glue to the back of the image and sentiment and attached them both to the inside of the card.

You Go First!!


Sharing a birthday card I made using Art Impressions Never Too Old – 5114  for the main image and sentiment. My friend and I tease each other about getting older. So, I thought this would be a fun card to make for her. LOL! I used another sentiment from this same set on the inside too, which reads, “Thanks for always being older than me”.

To make my card, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. For the background, I used multiple inks from Tim Holtz listed below, Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes and Lawn Fawn – Confetti Stencils. Using my MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The image was coloured in and fussy cut. Using my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink, I stamped the image onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. It was then embossed using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Spellbinders Die D-Lites – Conversation Bubble Three (S2-137) and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the sentiment. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the backs of the sentiment and coloured image and they were both popped up onto the background to complete the front of the card. I repeated the process of inking and embossing for the inside sentiment to complete the card.

Flying By!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Off To A Flying Start – D16003. We have had a lot of pilots in our family in the past and still do. I’ve had the precious opportunity of flying in a small 2 seater plane that my dad and uncle had built years ago and also being allowed into the cockpit of an Air Canada plane on our honeymoon flight in both directions over 30 years ago when it was still possible to this. On the flight home there was an electrical storm. This was so awesome to see. These are experiences that I will never forget as I loved every moment.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card was cut to the same size as the base and Dreamerland image Off To A Flying Start – D16003 was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The image was stamped a second time onto some plain paper and then fussy cut to create a mask. I coloured in the image using Copic markers. The mask created earlier was then put over top of the coloured image and I applied some Post-It tape along the bottom to hold it into place. Using some stencils that I had previously created using Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die, multiple blue Tim Holtz Distress inks listed below and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush, I created the cloudy background. Then, I applied the grass using Copic markers. The coloured image was then put back into my MISTI and using Versa Fine – Onyx Black to stamp the sentiment Sky’s The Limit by Kraftin’ Kimmie. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied and heated with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I applied double-side tape and attached it to the base card to finish it off.

Moo-rry Christmas!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Chillin’ Charlie – TT049 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Moo-rry Christmas – FDG002 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas release is being celebrated this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base from Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 (Assorted Box of Cards). I cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Navy Blue paper to the size of 3-5/8″ x 4-5/8″. The 3.5″ x 4.5″ background was cut from Heartfelt Creations – Festive Winterscapes Collection. I inked around the edges of the base card and background image with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Faded Jeans. The sentiment was added to the base card using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI. The ink was embossed using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I applied the 2 cut pieces together using double-sided tape and then popped them onto the base using 3M  double-sided tape. I had some branches pre-punch from earlier from various green cardstock using my Martha Stuart – Branch punch. I applied liquid glue to the backs of each of the branches and applied them to the popped up background.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. For the hat trim and pop-pom, I used Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear and sprinkled on some WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter. I heated this with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and then repeated the process to give it more texture. The image was popped up onto the background using 3M double-sided tape and a few small Ranger Snowflakes were added. Lastly, I added some Stickles – Diamond to the snowflakes on the background and in the centres of the smaller snowflakes to complete my card.

Sharing a CAS birthday card I made for a friend using Art Impressions – Loads of Fun Set – Ai5111. We are never too old to still have fun and enjoy life and this gal is showing us how to still have some. LOL!

Once everything was coloured, the sentiments were stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. I added double-sided tape to the back of the image and attached it directly to the base card.

There’s A Nap For That!!


Sharing a birthday card that I made for my husband using Art Impressions – Lazy Boy Set – Ai4159 and Stampin’ Up – Country Club Designer Series Paper for the golf player background. I’ve taken a few pictures over the years of my hubby in this exact position and couldn’t resist this stamp when I saw it. He laughed as soon as he saw the card and said it looked just like him too. LOL!

 

To make the card, I began with the base of 5″ x 5″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. I coloured in the backgound picture with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail onto American Crafts – “Holiday” paper. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder.

The card was now ready for assembly. I cut some light brown cardstock to the size of 5″ x 3.75″ and attached it directly to the base. I cut the background picture to the size of 3-3/8″ x 2-7/8″ and cut some dark brown cardstock to the size of 3-5/8″ x 3″ and used double-sided tape to attach them both together and to the base card. The flooring background with the sentiment was cut to 5″ x 1″ and attached using double-sided tape to the bottom of the card. Lastly, I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the image after fussy cutting around it and attached it to the card.

Be-Lated Birthday Chicks!!


Sharing a belated birthday card I made for my sister-in-law using Art Impressions – Spring Chicken Set – AiCS40. I really had fun with these cool Chicks! LOL!

Inside of the card.

To make the card, I began with the base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut Echo Park Paper Co. – My Favorite Winter paper. I just loved this paper and thought it had the look of barn board for the chicken coop. Double-sided tape was applied to the back of the background paper and it was applied directly to the base card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony was used to ink around all of the edges of the card. Using Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles dies, I die cut 1 large circle from black cardstock and 1 smaller circle from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Down on the Farm paper. I inked around the smaller circle with the same Tim Holtz ink. I applied the 2 circles together using double-sided tape and then added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the larger circle and attached it to the background. The speech bubble was die cut with Spellbinders Die D-Lites – Conversation Bubble 4 and my Cuttlebug.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. Once everything was coloured, I fussy cut around both images. I popped up the image on the front with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and ran the second image through my Xyron Creative Station to make a sticker out of it and placed it on the inside of the card. All of the sentiments were stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Too heated the powder. The sentiment bubble was popped up onto the front of the card with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Happy Xmas Couple!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Happy Together – TT007 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Holiday All Year – H200 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This month High Hopes Rubber Stamps is celebrating Christmas in July! Have you started your Christmas cards yet for this year?

To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from AC White Cardstock cut and scored to be 6″ x 6″. I inked around the edges of American Crafts – “Holiday” paper cut to the same size with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint. Then I applied it directly to the base card with double-sided tape. The larger oval was die cut using my Cuttlebug, Forever In Time – Texture Rouge paper and Gina Marie Designs – Big and Little Pierced Chain Oval Layered Dies. Using VersaMark ink, I inked around all of the edges of the oval and then applied Stampendous Stamp-n Stuff – Gold Tinsel and heat embossed it with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. This was then applied directly to the base card using Forever In Time – Double-sided foam tape. I die cut the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper using oval dies from the same set and Whimsy Stamps – Bookmark and Tags Die Set was used to die cut Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper.

The image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the smaller oval. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. The sentiment is actually 2 lines, but I wanted it to fit inside the gift die, so I used Scotch tape to mask off the words I didn’t want to show each time. I used my MISTI to do the stamping and Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder to emboss it. I used my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to emboss the powder. I cleaned off the stamp and then repositioned it again, repeating the previous steps. I did this 4 times. To finish off the sentiment give box, I applied some VersaMark ink to the bow and around all of the edges of the die cut. Next, I added Stampendous Stamp-n Stuff – Gold Tinsel embossing powder and heat embossed everything using my heating tool.

To assemble the card, I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the coloured image and Forever In Time – Double-sided foam tape to the back of the sentiment and applied them both to the card. To finish everything off and give it a little bit of sparkle, I added some dots on the holly using Stickles – Xmas Red.

Living to be 110!!


Just loved the sentiment and the happy go lucky image called 5279 – Be Happy Laugh Lines by Art Impressions. I used to belong to a weight club called TOPS until Covid hit and thought this would be a fun card to make for one of my former Tops Pals.

Using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image and sentiment were stamped onto the paper using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink. The image was coloured with Copic markers and I heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The image was then mounted onto Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes (5.5″ x 4.25″) cardstock.

Feel Good!!


Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Having You Around – D19078 for the main image and sentiment. There’s nothing like the love between a boy and his faithful companion. They become best friends as they both grow older together!!!

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I also cut a panel the same size out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I used this to create my background using stencils I created to make clouds by Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (D-05-01) and inks listed below by Tim Holtz. Copic markers were used to colour in the water and I used My Favourite Things – Slimline Grassy Edges Stencil as a guide for the grass on the bottom of the card. Using my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink, I stamped the sentiment and then embossed the ink with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I used double-sided tape and attached my background panel to the base card.

Using my Cuttlebug and dies from Studio Light – Wonderful Autumn, I cut the trees and landscape out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Copic markers, I coloured these in as well. Then I layered them on top of each other and used glue to adhere them to the coloured background.

Next, using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured it in with Copic markers. I fussy cut around the image by hand and used a black marker to go around all of the edges. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the image and it was placed on top of the background to finish off the card.

Birthday Presents and Cake!!


Sharing a birthday card that I made for a friend using a digital image from Polkadoodles called Cake Time Digi – Winnie Celebrations 2. I really love this awesome collection.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and then printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer using High Quality Grayscale. I found this to be the best setting as it doesn’t smudge when you colour. Next, I used Gina Marie Designs – Loopy Oval dies to die cut the image out. The image was coloured in with Copic markers.

Using Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones – 5.5″ x 4.25″ cardstock as the base. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat the embossing powder. All of the edges of the card were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry.

3M VHB – 2 sided tape was applied to the back of the die cut and attached directly to the base. Lastly to finish off the card, I added some Crafts – Rhinestone Stickers.

Love Lifts Me Up!!


Today, I’m sharing an inspirational slider card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Your Love Lifts Me Up – D20001. Love this stamp and image for lifting someone’s spirit up.

To make this card I used a base card of 5.5 x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background to be the same size using Asuka Studio – Sparkly Sky. I really love this paper. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured them in with Copic markers. Then, I fussy cut around it leaving a small white border.

I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. The little cloud was die cut with my Cuttlebug and Nellie’s Choice – Nature Scene Dies – NSD002 – Sky. Then I used a Picket Fence – Blending Brush that still had some blue ink on it from my last project to give it some colour. I cut a small strip just over a .5″ wide and about 4″ long to be a pull tab. I die cut a circle out of the top background paper with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles and then glued the piece that I cut onto the pull tab. Using 2 layers of 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I created the path on the back of the background and added some tape where I wanted the tab to stop. I glued 2 small magnets to the back of the cloud and also to the pull tab. (4 in total). Then I used an embossing pillow against the taped sides and over the magnets so that it would glide easier. I added some more double-sided tape to the remainder of the back of the background and then attached it to the card.

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.

When You Love Someone!


Today, I’m sharing a Valentine’s card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called When You Love Someone – D20005. I just love this adorable couple. This image could also be used for an Anniversary card too!

To make this card I used a base card of 6″ x 6″ using AC White cardstock. I added the base background using the paper from Stampin’ Up! – Have a Cuppa with double-sided tape. Then, I die-cut 4 hearts using my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Worn Lipstick and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough were used to colour around the edges of the card and also all of the hearts.

I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image. I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI. I used Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool onto the smallest heart.

To assemble the card, the largest heart was attached directly to the base background using glue. I added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the backs of the remaining hearts and coloured image and then layered them on top of each other. To complete the card, I added in some hearts from Jot – Jewel Stickers.

Hi Everyone! On December 11, 2020, I went in to have Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Surgery. The surgery went really well with no complications and I was home on the same day. I had a lot of rest over the past month, recovering, sleeping long hours and sleeping peacefully knowing that I no longer had to worry. I started back to work remotely last week. It was a long awaited surgery and I was extremely happy to have been lucky enough to have it during these Covid times, as many surgery’s were being cancelled. I had been dealing with Pre-Cancer off and on for the past 12 years beginning in my late 40’s, having multiple smaller operations and taking medication. My aunt had died in her 50’s because she didn’t seek help from a doctor until it was too late and my mother was also diagnosed with Uterine Cancer in her early 50’s as well. Thankfully, my mom was just in the early stages and had the operation in time and has had no issues since. It’s amazing how far technology and science have come. Not long ago, you would have spent a minimum of 2 weeks in the hospital and then another 5 – 6 weeks to recover at home.

As a thank you to the surgeons and nurses that took such good care of me before, during and after my surgery, I made them all cards to express my thanks. I thought I would share them with you and hope you like them too.

All of the cards used Hammermill 5.5″ x 4.25″ for the base. For the front of my cards, I made them all the same using Wooly Lambs (Craftin Desert Divas) retired stamp for the sentiment and main image. I coloured it in with Copic markers and then stamped the image again onto Post-It note to used as a mask. I layered the mask over top of the lamb and used my cloud stencil that I made from Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean to create the clouds. The embossed front was made using Cuttlebug – Thank You Embossing Folder.

To make the inside of the nurses card, I used Proud Nurse Set – 4899 (Art Impressions) for the main image and top sentiment and Craftin Desert Divas – Tissue Time for the bottom sentiment. I coloured in the image with Copic markers.

For the inside of the cards for the surgeons, I printed out the stamps from MFT_BB090_SuperHeroinScrubs_Printable (My Favourite Things) and MFT_BB091_DoctorsOrders_Printable (My Favourite Things) for the images and sentiments using High Quality Grayscale. Then coloured them in with Copic Markers.
