Furry and Bright!!


Today I’m sharing this adorable Gnomes and Pets image from KLM Digital Designs new August release. I just loved this adorable stamp and decided it would make an awesome Christmas card for all of your furry loving friends. Who couldn’t resist those adorable little faces?

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers, and my Brother Scan and Cut was used to fussy cut around the image. A black marker was used to go around all of the edges.

For the main background, a green card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ by The Paper Studio – Christmas Box of Cards 2012 Collection was used. Recollections – “Jolly Holiday” paper was cut at 5.5″ 2.25″ x and Recollections – Christmas Pets was cut at 5.5″ x .5″ twice. Glue was used to adhere each panel to the base card. The sentiment was stamped using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heat embossed using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Along the bottom, Marvy Uchida Snow Marker was applied and while still wet, Martha Stewart Crafts – Crystal Fine Glitter was applied. To make it fluffy, Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used.

I popped up the image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The little black and white kitty from Dress It Up – Kitten Kaboodle was added to complete the card.

Friends Together


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing an inspirational card that I made using Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS 19096 to create the little scenes and also for the sentiment. I wanted to show a variety of scenes that you could make with this cute set and so for the first time for me ever, I created this little flip card.

Panel 1 – Bears hugging in the rain.

Panel 2: The rain has stopped and there is a beautiful rainbow for the little couple.

Panel 3 – The sun has come out and is now beaming.

Panel 4: I just love this adorable sentiment and it finishes off the little story of the 2 little bears hugging each other through all of the different types of weather.

Here is the flip card in action.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. DCWV – Pocket Blossom was cut to the same size and using double-sided tape was attached to the base card. Then, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used to ink around all of the edges. I die cut X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and dies from Lawn Fawn – Flippin’ Awesome. I used the largest square of the die set in order to have more room to create the scenes. The larger square was die cut using Recollection – White paper using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The die-cut for the mechanism of the Flip Card was also from Lawn Fawn – Flippin’ Awesome. So easy to use. I love this die set.

I created a mask of the bears so that I could add in the different elements on each panel. All of the images were coloured in with Copic Markers. For the rain, Memento – Bahama Blue ink was used. For the sunbeams, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Summer Sunshine, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Yummy Yellow and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Starburst Stencil were used.

Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink was used to stamp the sentiment and then Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder was applied. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat up the embossing powder.

Once all of the panels were completed, I die cut the sparkly blue paper using Lawn Fawn – Flippin’ Awesome – Add-On dies. The flipping mechanism was then attached to the sparkling blue paper. This was then attached directly to the base of the card.

Missed Your Birthday!! Tusk! Tusk!


I was late sending out a friends card recently, so today I’m sharing a card I made using (Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps) Long in the Tooth!, Turtle-y Awesome! and Oceans of Love. For the background, I used Kraftin’ Kimmie Stencils Krafty Scenery 3 and Basics Stencil. I just love these little images and thought this cute sentiment was perfect for a belated birthday.

To create this card, I cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper at 5.5″ x 4.25″. I created the background clouds using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Basics Stencil. The ocean and waves were created using Kraftin’ Kimmie – Krafty Scenery 3 and Krafty Kolours – Lovely Lagoon and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. The white caps were created using Copic Opaque White. The sun was also created using the same stencil using Krafty Kolours – Summer Sunshine. The sand was created using a mixture of the 2 stencils and Krafty Kolours – Sandy Shores. The images were coloured with Copic markers and then I used my Brother Scan and Cut to die cut them out. I went around each one of the images with a black marker and then ran them through my Xyron’s and placed them onto the background. I used some pop-dots to adhere the seashells to the card.

You are Mer-Mazing!


Sharing a card I made today using You are Mer-Mazing (Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps) for the images and sentiments. For the background I used Kraftin’ Kimmie – Mermaid Scales Stencil.

To make this card, I first created the background using some texture paste mixed with Kraftin’ Kimmie – Mermaid Melody and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Lovely Lagoon Inks. Once it was all dry, I used my brushes with the same 2 colours to fill in all of the white on the background. Just love how this turned out.

I stamped my images using Memento – Tuxedo Black onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI to get nice clean images. The images were then coloured in with Copic markers and I added some Wink of Stella – Clear to the fins, bikini top and starfish in the mermaids hair. To finish off the card, I fussy cut around all of the images and them popped them up on the background using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. As a final touch, I added 3 Kraftin’ Kimmie – Springy Dots that lead up to the sentiment from the Seahorse.

Never Grow Old!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing an anniversary card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called We Will Never – D19077. My husband has always been my best friend and we are often told that we are still kids at heart. So, this sentiment and stamp were the perfect combination for us.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I die cut a heart out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. Then I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the image and background of the heart with Copic markers.

For the background, I used Stampin’ Up! – Have a Cuppa paper. 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. I then coloured the top half with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Worn Lipstick and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. Next, I edged around all of the background pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough.

Wine Birthday Divas!!!


Sharing a birthday card today that I made for my aunt using Wine Divas – SC0677 (AI Art Impressions) for both the images and sentiments. My aunt is into crafts and cardmaking too and sometimes when I stay over at her house, we like to share a bottle of wine together, talk and laugh. That is why when I saw this stamp set, I knew I had to make this special card for her birthday. LOL!

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 using my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214). I cut the background paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe at 5.5″ x 4.25″ and mounted it onto top of a white card base 5.5″ x 4.25″. I then inked around all of the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. Before, popping up the base image onto the background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I used my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder to add in the sentiment. I heat set the embossing powder with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

For the inside of the card, 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 4.25″. Then, I fussy cut around the image and attached it to the card base using 2 sided tape. I embossed the sentiment to finish off the inside.

Hoppy Easter!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a couple of images that I combined from Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Sending Love Flowers – D18002 and from their Mix and Match Set Mailbox and Wall – M18301. I thought this would make a great combo for a cheerful Easter card.

I made this card in stages. First I die-cut a 5″ x 5″ square out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Then I stamped all of the images onto Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper. Using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI, I stamped the Girl, bunnies and Bird House first. Then added the mask over top of them.

For the next stage, I stamped the wall. Then I added the mask over top of it as well.

Lastly, I stamped the foliage above the wall with Memento – Bamboo Leaves ink, removed all of the masks and then coloured in the entire image.

Once the image was coloured in, I added the sentiment and then mounted it onto the front of white cardstock cut to 5″ x 5″.

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.

Eek! You’re How Old???


Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made for my sister-in-law whose nickname is “Kitty”. I have a lot of fun trying to come up with new creations with cats for her birthday each year. This year, I decided to use Going Catty – DP1021 (Clearly Whimsy Stamps), for my main image on the front of the card. Shown below is how it looked before I placed the die cut from Peek A Boo Poppers (YNSD219) – (#Your Next Die) over top of it.

To create the die-cut, I first used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the main image and then again to cut out the pop-out die cut using Echo Park Paper Co. – Imagine That. I then added glue all around the outside of the circle and glued the two pieces together as shown below.

I created a card base 5.5″ x 4.25″ and then mounted paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe. I popped up the circle previously cut out with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I used the sentiment from the same Whimsy Stamp Set. I embossed it using VersaMark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Then I cut it out using Ribbon End Dies – My Creative Time. Lastly, I edged around all of the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry. Shown below is the card with the pop-up closed.

This is the front of the card with the pop-up open.

On the inside of the card, I used the image from Birthday Critters – 30-466 (Penny Black) and sentiment from
Whatnot Sentiments Set Twelve – CYNS638 (#Your Next Stamp).

All images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI.

Birthday Wishes!


Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made for my mom using Yummy Cupcake Bunny (CYNS592) (#Your Next Stamp) on the front of the card and  Rosie Rabbit Gift (CYNS542) (#Your Next Stamp) on the inside of the card.

On the inside:

To make the card I stamped the images on to Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black and my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to get a nice clean crisp image. After colouring the images, I fussy cut around them both. I then used My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies to die cut an oval out of Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe paper. I cut the remainder of the paper to be 4″ x 5.25″ and turned it over to the opposite side and mounted it onto a card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry to ink around the edges.

For the sentiments I used Versa Fine Onyx Black and VersaMark ink and then embossed both with Ranger embossing powders listed below.

To complete the card, I mounted the bunny on the front with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop it up as well as the sentiment.

Love Every Little Moment


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Mix and Match Clear Stamps (DC19095) (Dreamerland Crafts)!  Love the images for this stamp. There are so many different scenes that can be created. I chose to do a night scene with the 2 best friends sharing the serenity of the night sky.

To make this card, I first die cut some Bristol paper and then drew in the hills with light pencil and traced around the stamps to get the general idea of placement. I created a masked image of the bear and bunny using Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and Post-It Note for the hills and cut them both out. Next I erased all of the lines so that you could barely see them and stamped the bear and the bunny image directly onto the Bristol Paper. Next, I mounted the mask of the characters and hills that I had cut out previously over top of the stamped images so that they would be protected while I coloured in the sky.

To do the sky I used a mixture of Tim Holtz inks listed below and PrismaColor pencils. Then I blended all of the colours together using Gamsol and a blending paper stump. I repeated the process with the PrismaColor pencils several times.

Once the sky was completed, I removed the stencil for the grass and proceeded to colour it in using the same technique that I had used for the sky.

Lastly, I removed the mask for the bear and bunny and coloured them in. I added in some small trees using a Black Prismacolor pencil.

I popped my finished image, back into my MISTI again and stamped the sentiment using VersaMark. I also stamped in the stars in the sky and embossed everything with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. I also used a brush and tapped some of the white embossing powder all over the sky. Then heated it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Lastly, I stamped and embossed the seagulls using VersaFine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I coloured them in using Black PrismaColor pencil and then added in some highlights on the wings.

I popped up the coloured image and blue cardstock with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

Stamp and Sentiment: Mix and Match Clear Stamps (DC19095) (Dreamerland Crafts)

Inks: Versa Fine – Onyx Black, Versa Mark, (Sky Base): Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot

Panda Party


Hi There! Today I’m sharing a card for my friend who absolutely LOVES Panda bears. Every year, I try to find a new panda image to make her card with and this year I used Party Like A Panda (Simon Says Stamps) to make this fun card.

I used my MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card to get a nice clear image when interchanging the various stamps from this set. Then, I die cut the main image using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set. I coloured in the images with Copic Markers and then stamped the presents separately. After colouring the presents, I fussy cut around them and added them to the card. I inserted the image back into the MISTI and used Versa Fine – Onyx Black to stamp “Birthday” and Embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Next I used a small stamping block and added in the extra confetti and coloured it in to complete the background. Lastly, I mounted the image with 3M VHB 2-sided tape onto a 5.5″ x 4.25″ Hot Pink cardstock base.

Super Tall Cake!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts Clear Stamps  Super Tall Cake – D19017 for the main image and Birthday Sentiments – Set 002 (DS163007) for the sentiment!  This adorable little bear made a cake for someone very special! Hmmm! I wonder who that could be. LOL!

To make the card I first die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with Craftin Desert Diva’s – Inside Scalloped Squares. Then using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the paper. I coloured in the image using Copic markers.

Next I cut out used some tape to inlay the image back into the frame that I had previously die cut to make it one piece again. I also die cut the yellow and aqua paper with the same die cut twice. Then I used the yellow to be the inlay for the aqua frame and taped it back together on the reverse. After that, I used my MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black to apply the sentiment. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heated up using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

Next, I edged around the borders of both frames with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. I ran the base frame through Xyron Creative Station to make it into a sticker and so that the entire frame would lay flat. I mounted this onto 5″ x 5″ white cardstock. Then I popped up the smaller frame and image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

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.

Hello My Friend


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Dreamerland released some brand new stamps in October 2019 and today, I’m sharing Hello My Friend (D19080) from the October Character release!

I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copic markers. Once it was all coloured, I fussy cut around it leaving a small white border. I then added the final touch on the pom-poms with Stickles Pink and Stickles Aqua.

I used a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ white card for my base. I then cut the patterned paper from Doodle Bug Designs Inc. – Sugar Shoppe at 5-1/4″ x 4″ , inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough and mounted it onto the white base.

For the ovals I used the die cuts from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies, to create the various layers. I used the same paper pad to cut the small oval. Miscellaneous scrap paper that I had for the second oval and white for the last oval. I popped up the first 2 ovals using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape onto the largest oval and then mounted the large oval directly onto the base. Then, I popped up the image using the same 2 sided tape on the top oval.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Cut around the sentiment and then mounted it onto card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

All edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough before mounting onto card.
