Lighting the Candles!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamp called Lighting the Candles – D15204. This little angel is helping to light the way to a joyous Christmas for all!

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Doodlebug Design Inc. – Winter Wonderland was cut to the same size and applied directly to the base card using double-sided tape. I cut a piece of Recollections – Burgundy to the size of 5.5″ x 2″ and from a scrap piece of patterned paper 5.5″ x 1.75″. Double-sided tape was used to attach the 2 pieces together. These were attached to the base card using double-sided tape.

With my Cuttlebug, I die-cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Ice Blue Pack and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock with Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Holly Lattice Frame. U-Line double-sided tape was attached to the larger die-cut and it was popped up onto the centre of the card.

The image was stamped onto the the smaller die-cut using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, MISTI and Dreamerland Crafts – Lighting the Candles stamp. It was coloured in with Copic markers and Stickles – Star Dust was added to the snow on the ground. For the sky, UNIPosca PC-3M White marker was used for the small snowflakes. Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – Itty Bitty Snowflakes and Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – It’s Cold Outside buttons were placed over top of the images’ snowflakes with liquid glue after I had removed the backing from them. Wink of Stella – Clear was applied to the wings to make them sparkle. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the completed image and popped it up onto the centre of the card.  To complete the card, I placed a PinkFresh Glitter Drops – Lagoon in each corner.

Let Your Voice Sing!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Let Your Voice Sing – D15205 for the main image and Sentiment – Holiday Sentiments 003 – DS163003. Growing up we always had so much fun gathering with friends and family and singing Christmas carols.

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, I embossed the music design with a Cuttlebug – ProvoCraft – Allegro embossing folder. I cut it down to the size of 5.25″ x 4″ and adhered it directly to the base card.

Utilizing the Cuttlebug again and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock, the die-cut for the image was cut out with Spellbinders – Elegant Ovals. With a MISTI, the main image was stamped onto the die cut. It was coloured in and then a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen was used to colour in the fancy border surrounding the image. The sentiment was stamped with my MISTI and VersaMark ink. Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder was applied to the ink and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I fussy cut around the sentiment. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the sentiment and coloured image and they were both popped up onto the card. To finish the card off, I applied Dress It Up – Glitter Holly buttons with liquid glue from their Holiday Collection.

Holiday Wishes!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Holiday Wishes – D18031 May all of your holiday wishes come true this season for you and your loved ones!

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Stardust Christmas paper was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” paper was cut to 5.5″ x 1.25″ x 5.5″ x .75″. With my hands I tore along the top of both pieces to give the snow some texture. I applied double-sided tape to the larger piece and adhered it directly to the card. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the smaller piece and it was popped up over top of the larger piece.

The base card was placed into my MISTI and the sentiment from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps – The Magic of Christmas was stamped onto it using VersaMark ink. Recollections Detail Embossing Powder – Silver was applied over top of the ink and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I removed this from the MISTI and stamped the main image with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The image was coloured in and then fussy cut. With a black marker, I inked around all of the edges and then added U-Line Double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the card and snow. Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff was placed under the couple’s boots and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to puff it up. Stickles – Diamond was then added over top of the fluffy snow to create more sparkle. Finally, to complete the card, Stickles – Crystal was applied to the centre of the stars in the sky.

Paw-sitively Good!


It’s day 5 of the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop and today I’m sharing a Christmas card I made using Your Next Stamp –  Meowy Christmas – CYNS681. Having so much fun with this amazing hop and look forward to it every year.

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background to be the same size using My Favourite Things – Pawsome Prints paper and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, Creative Expressions – Festive Collection – Bold Snowflake Frame dies and Recollections – Blue Hues Shimmer Cardstock, I cut out the large snowflake and frame. Using some scrap dark blue paper, I die cut the large outline. I tore along the top of a small piece of Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and then die cut it with the larger cirlce die from the same die set. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Faded Jeans and a finger dauber, the edges were inked all around the base card. With liquid glue, I attached the large snowflake to the background border. I then attached the snow piece that I had cut previously with liquid glue as well. Then, using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen, I coloured in some snow in the sky.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. I added some U-Line double-sided tape to the image and popped it up into centre of the circle. The shadow was added using B52. The sentiments were both stamped onto the dark blue paper with VersaMark ink and then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. I cut out the larger sentiment with my cutter and the smaller one using my Cuttlebug and Gina K Designs – Sentiment Strips. I attached U-line double sided tape the sentiments and coloured image frame and popped up everything onto the card base.

U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the backs of three Creative Impressions – Brads – Snowflake – Winter with a double layer. They were all popped up onto the card and then YNS Gumdrops – Firefly Magic Sparkly Gumdrops were applied to the centres to finish the card off.

Making Beautiful Music!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Making Beautiful Music – D152002. This little angel is so sweet and is spreading Christmas cheer to everyone early this year.

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 5.5″ using AC Cardstock – White. AC – Christmas Cardstock – Green was cut to be the same size as the base and then adhered to the card using double-sided tape. The frame was created using Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss die-cutting machine, Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Ornate Holly Framed Noel die and Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” paper. I applied liquid glue to the back of this piece and then adhered it to the card.

With my Cuttlebug, I die cut a 3.5″ x 3.5″ square using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The main image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I cleaned off the angel and then stamped in place again using VersaMark ink for the snowflakes. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied to the image and then heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I coloured in the image and then added some sparkles onto the dress using a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Sparkle was added to wings with Clear – Wink of Stella. To make the snowflakes a little brighter and to add some smaller snowflakes in the sky, I used a white Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I created a small mixture of FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint, DecoArt Glamour Dust, Delta Ceramcoat – White onto an acrylic block and with a paint brush added in the snowy background along the bottom of the square. Using a small Stylus, I added in a few more sparkly snowflakes and sprinkled DecoArt Glamour Dust over them while they were still wet. This was then put aside to dry.

Using my Cuttlebug, I die cut 6 petals and 7 leaves out of scraps of paper using Spellbinders – Holiday Flower & Greenery dies. Liquid glue was used to attach the petals together and the I added U-Line double-sided tape and some liquid glue to the bottoms of them to attach them to the card. I trimmed the leaves and with a small amount of liquid glue applied to the tips of the leaves, I adhered them to the card under the flowers. PinkFresh Studio – Essentials Jewel Mix yellow jewels were glued to the centre of each flower. Using my Cuttlebug once again, I die cut 2 sentiments using Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Ornate Holly Framed Noel die with some scrap gold paper. The oval was die cut using Creative Expressions – Frames and Tags – Charlotte dies and a scrap piece of AC – Christmas Cardstock – Burgundy. I glued the 2 sentiments on top of each other to give it some dimension and then attached the sentiment to the oval. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the finished image and it was popped up onto the centre of the card. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the oval and it was popped up onto the top of the card to finish it off.

Snow Kisses!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a snow lady Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Snow Kisses – TT059 for the main image and Holly Jolly – K048 for the sentiment. I’ve always loved snow people and birds and this stamp combo makes me smile because it has both.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of AC Cardstock – White, cut and scored to be 6″ x 6″. I cut 2 strips of Doodlebug Design Inc. – Winter Wonderland coloured snowflake pattern to the size of 6″ x .75″. 2 strips of Doodlebug Design Inc. – Spring Solid Assortment paper to the size of 6″ x .25″ and 1 strip of Forever In Time – Textura Sky cut to the size of 6″ x 4″. With Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough and a blending brush, I inked around all of the edges of the larger pieces. I ran all of the smaller pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker. The pieces were then attached to the base card from top to bottom. I used liquid glue to attach the larger piece. I trimmed around the 3 sides of the card with a paper trimmer to make it all even.

For the frame around the image, using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss die cutting machine, I die cut the entire frame with Doodlebug Design Inc. – Winter Wonderland paper and Penny Black – Graceful Stackers dies. 2 dies were pieced together for the pink frame using my cutting device and Forever In Time – Textura Blush cardstock. Lastly, I stamped the image with Memento – Summer Sky ink onto Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” using my MISTI. I took this piece and ran it through my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss die cutting machine again so that it would fit snug into the frame. I cut off the remainder following the stamped snow along the top and inked it with the Memento – Summer Sky ink. Using liquid glue, I applied the pink frame over top of the snowflake die cut while carefully matching up the edges. Liquid glue was applied to the lower back of the snow piece and it was attached to the snowflake background inside the frame.

The image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. After colouring the images, I fussy cut around all of them and then with a black marker, inked around all of the edges. I popped up the snowlady using U-Line double-sided tape and attached her to the card under the snow. The little bird was also popped up using U-Line double-sided tape and some liquid glue. Using Copic B41, I added in some shadows in the snow and Stickles – Hibiscus was applied to the scarf and pompom to give them some extra sparkle.

The sentiment was stamped onto Doodlebug Design Inc. – Spring Solid Assortment using my MISTI and Versamark ink. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles, I die cut the sentiment. The edges were inked around using a finger dauber and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. The snowflake was cut using my Cuttlebug, Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” cardstock and die from Recollections – Christmas Snowflakes Clear Stamp & Die set. I popped up both the sentiment and snowflake using U-Line double-sided tape onto the card. Lastly, I added 3 Doodlebug Designs Inc. – Sprinkles onto the frame to finish it off.

Present Gnomes


Sharing a Christmas card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Pre-Colored – Present Gnome – Blue and Pre-Coloured – Present Gnome – Yellow from the new October 2022 release. Christmas is not that far away now and it’s time for me to create more cards for the holidays.

To make my card this week, I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the background paper from PhotoPlay – Gnome for the Holidays Christmas to be the same size and attached it to the base card with double-sided tape. I cut some green cardstock to the size of 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″. U-line double-sided tape was attached to the piece and it was popped up onto the centre of the card. Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper was cut to the size of 4.75″ x 3.5″. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, I inked around the base card and the snowflake piece.

The images were imported into Microsoft Word and I layered them together before I printed them out and fussy cut around them leaving a thin white border. I cut the snow piece to be 4.75″ x 1″ using Lawn Fawn – Sparkle Cardstock in “Pixie Dust” and then tore it look like drifting snow. I glued along the bottom of this piece with liquid glue and adhered it to the snowflake patterned paper. Using liquid glue, I attached the gnomes on top and behind the snow. I applied liquid glue to the finished piece and centred it onto the green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on to a scrap piece of blue cardstock using Versamark ink and then applied Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This was heat embossed with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heating Tool. I die cut the circle using a 1″ Circle punch and then applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean around it. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the back of the sentiment and it was popped up onto the card. Lastly, to finish everything off, some Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Sequins were added around the sentiment.

A Million Wishes


Sharing a birthday card I made today for my husband using Whimsy Stamps –  A Million Dollars – DDB0071 and A Million Wishes – CWSD402. He works in the financial industry, so I thought this combination was perfect for him when I saw it! LOL!

To make this card, I started with stamping the A Million Dollars – DDB0071 using my large MISTI, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Wicked Black Ink and lime green cardstock. The images were stamped using my smaller MISTI, Memento – Tuxedo Black and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the images with Copic markers and then fussy cut around them. Using my small MISTI again, Versamark ink, Recollections – Black cardstock and sentiment from A Million Wishes – CWSD402 – Whimsy Stamps, I stamped the sentiment. This was then embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and then heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The sentiment was die cut using Poppystamps – Christmas Quotes dies and Anna Griffin Empress Mini die-cutting Machine. The “$” sign was stamped using the same stamp set with Versamark Ink and Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder onto the large background and then heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

The card was now ready to assemble. I created the base card using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 8.25″ x 3.5″. I attached the large money piece that I had stamped earlier using double-sided tape to the base. U-Line double sided tape was added to the back of the sentiment piece and main images. Everything was then popped them up onto the background to complete the card.

Santa…I Tried!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Reindeer Games – S108 for the image and Santa…I Tried – FLL001 for the sentiment. It’s never too early to start making Christmas cards and I couldn’t resist this super fun image and sentiment paired together. It just makes me laugh and I hope it makes you laugh too! I don’t think the reindeer worked very hard, I think he just wanted Santa to pull the sleigh while he relaxed. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the background to be the same size using Stampin UP! – ‘Tis The Season paper and adhered it to the base card using double-sided tape. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness and a finger dauber, I inked around all of the edges of the card. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die cut Forever In Time – Texture Rouge paper. I added some U-Line double-sided tape to it and popped it up on top of the patterned paper. Using Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock.

The image was stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the die cut using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool. I coloured in the image and background with Copic Markers. I added in the puffy Santa trim and pop-pom using Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff. This was then heated with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to puff up the liquid. For the blue tints in the snow, I first coloured them in with Copic Marker – B60 and then using a Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear and Stampendous – Frozen Ice Tinsel Embossing Powder, I heat embossed the snow drifts. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI, Versamark and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. This again was heated with my heating tool. Then, I added in the snow in the sky with a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. Lastly, I added Stickles – Diamond to add some more sparkle to the snow on the ground and Stickles – Holly all around the frame of the coloured image. I set this all aside to dry for a few hours and then applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the coloured image and popped it up onto the red rectangle. To finish off the card, I added in 3 pop-dots from YNS Gumdrops – Milk and Cookies – Matte.

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.

A Flower For You Mom!!


Today, I’m sharing a Mother’s Day card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Say Love With Flowers – D162017It’s that time of year when we all get to celebrate our Mother’s special day. A bond between a child and their mother is something so special and rare! Happy Mother’s Day to all of you special ladies out there and especially to my mom whom we all love dearly!

To make this card I used a base of 6″ x 6″ using AC White Cardstock cardstock. Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock was cut to the same size as the base and adhered with double-sided tape. P13 – Hello Spring was cut to 5.75″ x 5.75″ and the edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Saltwater Taffy. This was popped up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and PinkFresh Studio Essentials – Blanket Stitched Oval die, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The main image was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image using copic markers and created the background. Once the background was completed, I dipped a Q-tip into some Rubbing Alcohol ink and dotted it all over the background. Then using a Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear, I went around the oval where the pattern was and applied Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder. then heated it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up onto the card. For the sentiment, I used the stamps from Die Cutting Essentials Magazine – Issue 75 – Geo Floral Wreath Dies & Stamps. Using my MISTI, Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail, I embossed the sentiment onto a scrap piece of green cardstock. I fussy cut around the sentiment and applied U-Line double-side tape to pop it up at the bottom of the card.

Whimsy Donkeys!!


Sharing a birthday card I made using Whimsy Stamps Wonkey Donkey – DP1053 for the images and sentiments for my younger brother’s birthday card this year. I just couldn’t resist these fun characters when I saw them!

To make my card, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 8.5″ x 3.5″. For the background, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. Using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Marquee Die (WSD347), I die cut the blue patterned paper. I stamped the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock with my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured them all in with Copic markers and then fussy cut around all of them. Using my MISTI and Versamark, I stamped the sentiments onto Recollections – Black cardstock. They were then embossed using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. I used some liquid glue to place the donkeys behind the die-cut cardstock and then applied liquid glue over the rest of the back of the die cut and adhered it directly to the base. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the remainder of the donkeys to pop them up on the card out of the windows. Lastly, I added some U-Line double-side tape to the backs of each of the sentiments and popped them up onto the card to finish it off.

Every Little Moment!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called When You Love Someone – D20005 and Mix and Match Collection – Railing and Lampost – M18309 for the main images and Mix and Match – DCS19095 for the sentiment. Loved combining these stamps as they could be used for Valentine’s Day, Anniversary or just a note to let your special someone know how much you love them.

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the Dreamerland image When You Love Someone – D20005 and then stamped it again onto Post-It Note paper. I cut around the image on the Post-It Note paper and applied it over top of my stamped image. Once this was in place, I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the Dreamerland image Mix and Match Collection – Railing and Lampost – M18309. The railings were stamped on both sides of the image and then again using my MISTI, I stamped the lamp posts multiple times. I also used Copic – W9 to make the bottom halves a little darker as well. This was done on both sides of the main image. I had used some Post-It note paper to put on both ends so that the fence wouldn’t go past the small border around the card when I was stamping. I coloured in the image with Copic Markers. Once the image and background were coloured in, I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink, my MISTI and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Lastly, some stars were added to the sky using Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen.  I adhered the completed image to some Recollections – Black cardstock using double-sided tape. To finish off the card, I applied U-Line double-sided tape and popped the completed image and matting onto the base card.

Dress Up The Christmas Tree!!


Today, I’m sharing a card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Mix and Match Clear Stamps – DCS19090.  These little woodland creatures are enjoying their new tree on a snowy evening. Do you have an outdoor Christmas tree?

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die-cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and adhered it to the base using double-sided tape.

Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter was used to create the snow on the bottom. Stickles – Diamond was applied between the snow drifts to create a little more glitter.

Today, I’m featuring this adorable dragon image from Lee Holland Art called Reindeer Antlers Christmas Dragon. Thank you Lee Holland Art for sponsoring us and having such amazing fun designs to choose from. I love all of your little dragons.

 

For the base card, I used AC Cardstock – White and cut it and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. For the background, I cut Creative Memories – Mermaid Cove Designer Paper to the same size as the base card. The image using HP High Quality Grayscale was printed onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies, the printed image and Hot Buy – Recollections Ombre Brights Paper were both die cut. The sentiment was stamped using my Misti, VersaMark Ink and sentiment stamps from Lawn Fawn – “Offset Sayings – Christmas” and Lawn Fawn “Winter Skies”. Ranger Super Fine Gold Embossing powder was applied to the stamped sentiments and then heat set with a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

I cut the sentiment down to be 3-3/8″ x 1-2/8″ and then used W R Memory Keepers – Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to create .25″ corners. Using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I went around all of the edges of the cuts with the exception of the image die cut. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I used a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the snow in the sky and a combination of Stickles – Crystal, Stickles – Waterfall and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff which was applied prior to the Stickles being added.

The card was now ready to be assembled. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the coloured image and cut frame to pop them up. I doubled up the tape for behind the sentiment. The base paper was applied directly to the card base using double-sided tape. I peeled off the tape from the backings of the elements and popped them all up onto the base card to finish it off.

Hi everyone…today we are having a sponsor day over at the Passionate Paper Creations & Friends FB group site with Whimsy stamps!! Sharing a card I made today using this adorable image from Whimsy Stamps – Penguin Thinking of You and for the sentiment Penguins Winter Adventure.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I printed out the image using HP High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut around the image and snow. I coloured in the background separately and then splattered some FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint and Delta Ceramcoat – White onto the background. The background was cut down to 5.25″ x 4″ and was popped up onto the base using U-line double-sided tape. The image was then popped up onto the background using U-line double-sided tape and the sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. This was popped up using 3M double-sided tape and applied to the card to finish it off.

Believe!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Believe Snowman – TFL006 and Snow Globe – ULF002 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and North Pole Greetings – GLL005 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. It’s time to start believing the magic of Christmas and the joy that it brings to everyone!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base using AC Cardstock – White cut and folded to 6″ x 6″. The snowflake background is from Lawn Fawn – Let It Shine Snowflakes (6″ x 6″) paper pad. I applied this directly to the base using double-sided tape.

Using Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles and my Cuttlebug, I die cut a 3.75″ circle from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the snowman scene image onto it. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then added some snow to the sky and snowman’s arms using a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Sakura Glaze – Black was added to the eyes of the snowman and birds and the snowman’s mouth. With a Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear, I added some ink to the top of the Snowman’s hat, sign, icicles, tops of the birdhouses and snow drifts and then heat embossed everything with WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter and a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Stickles – Diamond was added as an extra layer to the snow and Wink of Stella – Clear was applied over all the snowman. This was then set aside to dry.

With my MISTI and Memento – Summer Sky ink I stamped the top part of the globe onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper. I cleaned off the stamp and this time, I used some Post-it Notes to hide the background inside the globe and inked the braided border for both the top and bottom of the base with Versamark ink. I applied Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing powder and heat embossed it using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. With my globe image still in place on my MISTI, I removed the snowglobe stamp and added the sentiment turning up both ends of the stamp slightly to give the words some curvature. The sentiment was stamped using Versamark ink and then Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing powder was applied to it and then heat embossed using a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The base was then coloured in using my Copic markers and a Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear pen was used to colour in the white areas to give it some glitter. I also added some of this pen to the tops of the snowman’s arms. With my scissors, I fussy cut around the entire snow globe.

The card was now ready to assemble. I attached 3M double-side tape to pop up the snow globe onto the main background and then added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the circle and centred it on the top part of the globe. Lastly, to finish off the card, I applied some Nuvo Crystal Drops – Caribbean Ocean, Violet Galaxy and Nuvo Glitter Drops – Sherbert Shimmer to some of the snowflakes on the base card.

Time to Celebrate!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Let’s Celebrate – D19074 for the main image and Christmas Snow Scene – M18313 for the background. For the sentiment, I used Holiday Sentiments Set 001 – D163001

 

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers Die were used to die-cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. Using the background stamps, I stamped the background using my MISTI and Memento – Summer Sky ink. I coloured in the sky, trees and house with Copic markers and then added some snow using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Once this was done, I added Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel – Iridescent to the remainder of the die cut for the sparkling snow. I added a little bit more where the boys feet would land and set it aside to dry. Once again, I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and stamped the main images. I coloured them in with Copic markers and then applied Ranger – Emboss It Pen Clear to the fur trims for the hats and clothing. I applied WOW! Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter to the inked areas and then heat embossed everything with my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool. For the pompoms, I applied Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and then heat embossed the liquid for it to puff up. For the present, I added some gold swirls using a Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen. Then I fussy cut around the images leaving a thin white border. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Lawn Fawn – Peacock Ink on to the base card. Then I stamped it again, this time using Versamark ink and then added Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and heat embossed it.

The card was now ready to assemble. Using double-sided tape, I attached the background to the scalloped border. I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the scalloped border and popped it up onto the base card. Using 3M double-sided tape, I popped up the main image and present onto the background. A little more of the Stickles – Diamond was added to snow where his feet are to complete the card.
