Dam Good Birthday!


Sharing a card I made for my younger brother’s birthday. He sometimes likes to use “choice” words, so I couldn’t resist  these little characters and sentiment from Whimsy Stamps called Beaver Birthday Clear Stamps. LOL! The little tree stump and stacked logs are from Your Next Stamp – Autumn Animals (CYNS605) and the larger log is from Craftin Desert Diva’s – Build A Scene (Retired).

To make this card, I first stamped all of the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black and my MISTI.  My Brother Scan and Cut was used to cut around all of the images, which were then coloured with copic markers. The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

The base card was created using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock folded to the size of 8-1/4″ x 3-1/4″. To create the clouds in the background, I used the same paper cut to the same size as the base and using a template that I had previously created using Whimsy Stamps – Grass and Cloud Edger Die Set and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks – Broken China and Blueprint Sketch. For the slim-line die cut, I used Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Wave Dies and Craftsmart Hot Buy – Christmas Embossed paper. Then I inked around the entire die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tea Dye to make it pop more. The tree along the left side and the long log along the bottom were drawn free hand and then coloured in with Copic markers.

To assemble the card, I first attached the cloudy background to the base of the card using double-sided tape. Next, I attached the slim-line die cut using some glue. The large tree, long log and small log pile were all attached using glue. The remainder of the images and sentiment were all attached using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added some twine to the balloons and beaver to finish it off.

Gnome – Thanks!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Chillin’ At Home Gnome from the new March release. This gnome is just sitting back and relaxing enjoying the beautiful day outside. This stamp comes with 2 more sentiments as well as the one shown here on my card. “Keep smiling, life is to short”, which is soooo true and also, “Miss You”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5.5″ x 4.25″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I fussy cut around the image as I had accidentally splattered some of the red Copic marker onto the original background. Grrrr! Which turned out to be OK anyways, as I cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″ and created my background directly onto it using some templates that I created from cloud dies and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean for the sky. I just used Copic markers to colour in the sky on the image I fussy cut for between the fence posts. This way I didn’t have to fussy cut between each one. For the grass, I started out with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn for my base and then used the Copic markers listed below to add more texture.

Once the image and back ground were both complete, I ran the main image through my Xyron Creative Station as I wanted it to lay completely flat onto the background. Finally, I applied some 2-side tape to the base card and attached the finished background and image.

Old – Not Extinct!!


Sharing the second image and sentiment from KLM Digital Designs today from the new February release called Dinosaur Collection. Love this collection and the images are great for masculine cards too! This is perfect some of your friends reaching a milestone birthday, like 40, 50 or 60 or older. LOL!

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I sized both the image and sentiment to fit 5.5″ x 4.25″ and printed everything out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and a mixture of cloud dies were used to create the sky.

Once all of the colouring was completed, I attached the image to the base using double-sided tape.

Feeling Up To Par!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Get Well Card featuring Golfer Glen – T084 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) paired with the sentiment Up To Par – G257 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). It’s always hard to find Get Well Cards for men, and I thought the pairing of these 2 stamps went so well together.

To create the card this week, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. Then, I stamped the image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The image was then coloured in with Copic Markers. I stamped the image again onto Post-It Note paper and used it as a mask. Then, I applied the clouds using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and cloud stencils I made from Avery Elle – PiercedCloudsDie and Whimsy Stamps – Grass and Cloud Edger Die Set. Then I used some washi tape to mask the main image border and inked around it using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean.

The card was now ready to assemble, I attached the coloured image to a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper, folded to 5.5″ x 4.25″.
