Somebunny Loves You!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Bunny Blossoms – TDG024 for the image and Some Bunny – FDG032 for the sentiment. I just love this super adorable little bunny taking time to smell the flowers. Spring is here, but the winter snow keeps playing tricks on us still. LOL! We just had another snow storm the other day. I thought April was supposed to bring Spring showers, not Spring snow!!!

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 the Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock background paper to the size of 6″ x 6″ and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. Crafts Designer Paper – 02-3093268 was cut to the size of 5.75″ x 5.75″ and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. I applied U-Line double-double sided tape and popped the paper onto the gold backing. Using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies, I die cut another square from Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I popped up the gold square onto the bunny background and stamped the main image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black.

The image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I though I’d go out of my comfort zone this week to create this sky with a variety of different colours. I thought it still needed something more so I added in some clouds using a PrimaColor Pencil – White. I also added in some extra fur with PrimaColor Pencil – Beige. Once, I was satisfied with the sky, I added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it and it too was popped up onto the card. The sentiment was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. I fussy cut around it and then applied it to a small piece of Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock using repositionable tape. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image with a slight border. I coloured around the circle stamped image with RV000 and then used a black marker to go all around the edges. I applied U-Line double-sided tape and popped it up onto the gold die-cut. Lastly, 2 layers of the U-Line double-sided tape were applied to the right side only of the sentiment and glue to the left and attached it to the base coloured paper to finish off the card.

Coffee With A Friend!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Let’s Chat – TLF030  for the image and Perfect Blend – FLL022  for the sentiment. I don’t drink coffee, but really loved these little gnome buddies having a cup of coffee and getting a chance to chat.

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 Creative Memories – Hot Fudge cardstock to be the same size as the base card and attached it using double-sided tape. Your Next Stamp – The Perfect Blend cardstock was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and my Cuttlebug. I popped this up onto the base background using U-Line double-sided tape. The large square was die cut using Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies and Creative Memories – Hot Fudge cardstock. The smaller square was cut using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was then stamped with my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. I stamped the sentiment onto Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and die cut it with My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers.

The card was now ready to finish being assembled. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of all of the remaining pieces and popped them up onto the card base.

Lucky Dog!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Fido’s Home from the new January 2022 release. We grew up having dogs in our family. They were all spoiled and loved very much! They may have thought they were the lucky ones, but deep down, I think we were.

I created the base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. For the background, I used Kraftin’ Kimmie – Pawprints Stencil, a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Pumice Stone to create the paw prints. For the hearts, I used the same stencil, a small foam brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door. With my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Stitched Squares Inside and Out, I die cut the red square from Forever In Time – Texture Rouge cardstock.

I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die cut the image using Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies and the sentiment with My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties. I inked around the edges of the sentiment die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door and popped it up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and the sky was created with Lawn Fawn – Cloudy Stencil and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and a mixture of Copic blue markers. The completed image was popped up onto the base card using U-Line double-sided tape to finish it off.

You Got This!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Lasso Some Snow – TDG021  for the main image and Don’t Worry – FDG021 for the sentiment. We all need a little bit of encouragement every now and then and this little snowman is here to give us some.

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 used Echo Park Paper Co. – My Favorite Winter cardstock cut to the same size as the base card for the background. I attached this to the base using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, a mixture of square dies from My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies, I die cut cardstock from Scrapbook.com Neutrals Smooth Cardstock and also Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I applied double-sided tape to the back of the tan square and applied it directly to the background. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the back of the dark brown square and popped up onto the centre of the tan square.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock square and coloured it in with Copic markers. Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen was used to create the snow in the sky. Sakura Glaze – Black and Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen were used on the eyes of the snowman. I applied U-line douhble-sided tape to the back of the completed image and popped it up onto the centre of the dark brown square.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the sentiment onto Recollections – White cardstock and then die cut it out using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Ribbon End Dies. I inked around the edges using Copic – E59 marker to give it a dark brown border. I used my knife to remove the double border from the piece left behind and then traced the shape of the ribbon onto the remaining piece of Scrapbook.com Neutrals Smooth Cardstock. I cut this out with my cutter and scissors. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to both pieces and the completed sentiment was popped up onto the card below the main image to complete the card.

Live Life!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I’m sharing a card I made from the High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Mix It Up Release”  using Sports Car 1 – SS048 for the main image and Live Life – GG037 for the sentiment! It would be great to win a lottery and drive something similar to this awesome car! Then, I could rent a race track and speed around it. That would be sooooo much fun! LOL!

To make my card this week, I stamped the image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it and set it aside. A piece of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card was cut to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ for me to create my background. The background was also coloured in with Copic markers. Next, I die cut the background using my Cuttelbug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. The sentiment was die cut with Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies and for the outer square, My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out die was used. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire was used to ink around the edges of both squares.

To assemble the card, 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was attached to the backs of the car image, sentiment and larger blue square. The background coloured image was adhered directly to the base card of The Paper Studio – Primary Simply Solids (4.25″ x 5.5″). The car and the sentiment were than attached onto the main background.

Surfing Gabriel!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a masculine card using Surfing Gabriel – TT516 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and No Waves – FR011 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Gabriel is enjoying the waves and the bright skies. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up here so that I can start swimming again too!

To make my card this week, I die cut a square from Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. A larger square was cut using Waffle Flower – Nesting Square dies and spare blue cardstock. The image and sentiment were both stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then, I created a mask and put it over top of the coloured image and added in my clouds using various Tim Holtz inks listed below and Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (Used to create stencils). To create the spray on the waves, I mixed a little bit of FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint and Delta Ceramcoat – White paint and applied it to the coloured image using a 1/4″ H.J. Domed Dry Stipple brush. For a little extra sparkle, I added some DecoArt Glamour Dust while the paint was still wet.

Brother Scan and Cut was used to die-cut around the sentiment. Edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch. A second circle was die cut using Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles out of aqua cardstock and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers.

To assemble the card, I used Recollections – Winter 4.25″ x 5.5 for the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used to ink around the edges of the card. The coloured image was glued to the larger square and the sentiment was glued to the larger circle. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was attached to the backs of the larger circle and square and attached to the base card. To finish it off, YNS Gumdrops were added.
