*******************************************************

Thank you KLM Designs for sponsoring us. Today, I’m sharing a card I made using KLM Designs –  Owl and Sentiments. I really love your adorable images and working with them.

The base was created with AC Cardstock – White cut and folded to the size of 6″ x 6″. I cut the background paper from My Mind’s Eye – Hootenanny designer paper to be the same size as the background and applied it to the base using double-sided tape. From the same paper pack, I cut a piece of the designer paper to the size of 6″ x 1″ and glued this on top of the background at the bottom of the card. I cut a piece of Recollections – Brown cardstock to the size of 6″ x 5/8″ and applied that above the wording on the bottom of the card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge was used to ink around all of the edges of the card.

The image and sentiment were both imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it and the sentiment. I applied Sakura Glaze – Black to the eyes and Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen for the highlights. With a FolkArt 1837 – Perfect Liner #1 and Copic Opaque White I added in some white onto the wings. I ran the image through my Xyron Creative Station and the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied them to Recollections – Brown cardstock and Recollections – Black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around the 2 again. I popped them up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape to complete the card.

Surprise Gnome!!


Sharing a birthday card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Surprise Gnome from the new December release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Let’s Celebrate!” and “Let’s party”.

I created the base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I cut the paper and folded it to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut the background paper to be the same size as the background using Echo Park – It’s Your Birthday paper and glued it to the front of the base card. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was used to ink around the edges. I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. Using scissors, I fussy cut around the coloured image and sentiment. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker.  I attached this to some Aqua cardstock and fussy cut around it again. U-Line double sided tape was applied to the backs of the image and the sentiment and they were popped up onto the card. I tied some black thread to some balloon brads and then popped them up onto the card using double-sided tape.

Wood You Be Mine??


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs –  Logging Gnome from the new November release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “What Wood I Do Without You” and “Don’t want to get sappy, but I love you!”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. For the base card, AC Cardstock – White was cut to the size of 6″ x 6″. I cut 2 strips to the size of 1.5″ x 6″ from Echo Park Paper Co. – Let’s Lumberjack paper and adhered them to the top and bottom of the base using liquid glue. I cut out the 2 larger hearts using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. I appplied the large heart directly to the base using liquid glue. For the smaller heart, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy was applied using a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. This was then popped up onto the larger heart using U-Line – 2 sided tape. I used by Brother Scan and Cut to create a small white border around the gnome image and coloured him in. Once coloured, I popped him up onto the card using U-Line – 2 sided tape. My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the small hearts from Echo Park Paper Co. – Let’s Lumberjack paper. I ran them through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied them to the card to finish it off.

Created With Love!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Crafty Gnome using Let’s Color – TLF028 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Created With Love – FFL012 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Crafting is always so much fun and I love to colour up new stamps all the time! This month’s Gnome Mania at High Hopes Rubber Stamps has a lot of fun new gnome stamps to choose from.

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 5.5″. I cut the background paper from Photo-Play – Crafting With My Gnomies Paper Pack to be the same size and applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Twisted Citron was used to ink around all of the edges. Using my Cuttlebug and dies from My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then stamped the image onto it using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Tie die was used to die cut Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock and the sentiment was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the main image with Copic markers and then Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Twisted Citron was used to go around the edges of both die cuts. The image and sentiment were both popped up onto the background using U-Line double-sided tape. Finally, I ran small pieces of paper through my Xyron Create a Sticker from Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones paper pack and then through my Cuttlebug using My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties die cuts. I placed the hearts onto the card to finish it off.

You Are My Son, Moon and Stars!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs –  L’il Boy Gnome from the new November release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “Happy Birthday” and “You’ll outgrow my lap, but never my heart!”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word. I added in an oval circle with a 2 pt border and placed it behind the sentiment to give me a guide line for where to cut when printed out. I printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut out the main image and I fussy cut out the moon. I coloured in the image and moon with Copic markers.

The base was created with Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock cut and folded to the size of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I attached the background pattern paper from Hunky Dory Crafts – Mirri Card – Starry Galaxies, cut to the same size as the base with double-sized tape. I ran the moon through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it onto the starry background and then cut off the excess around the bottom of the card. I added in some stickers onto the background using Forever In Time – Foil Fancy Stickers – Outer Space. The boy was added using U-Line double-sided tape to pop him up onto the card. To finish everything off and complete the card, I used W R Memory Keepers – Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to create .5″ rounded corners.

Jolly Reindeer Cheers!!


Hi everyone…today we are having a sponsor day over at the Passionate Paper Creations & Friends FB group site with Di’s Digi Stamps!! Today I’m using this adorable reindeer image from Di’s Digi Stamps called Jolly Reindeer Cheers.

For the base card, I used AC Cardstock – White and cut it and scored it to be 6″ x 6″. For the background, I applied Craft Consortium – It’s Snome Time (6″ x 6″) to the base using double-sided tape. Green cardstock cut the size of approximately 1″ was added to the bottom using double-sided tape. I added Crafts – Sparkling Stickers – 02-3068629 – Red to Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. to make it more sturdy and then cut 2 pieces, 1″ x 6″ and .75″ x 6″ to add to the top and bottom. I applied double-sided tape to adhere it the card. I ran some gold cardstock from Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Gold Medley cut to the size of 1.25″ x 6″ through my Xyron Create a Sticker. Using my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Jingle Bell Border Die, I cut the bells out. I peeled off the sticker backing and applied it to the top of my card. Using Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles – I cut out a circle 3.75″ from the same cardstock and using U-Line double-sided tape, I popped it up in the centre of the card background. The same dies were also used to cut a 3.5″ circle out of Craft Consortium – Ink Drops Vivid Craft Papers and this was popped up onto the gold circle using U-Line double-sided tape. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was cut and I ran it through my Xyron Creative Station. This was used to die-cut the sentiment with my Cuttlebug and Jolly Quickutz – Deck the Halls limited edition gift set. The sentiment was die-cut 4 times and stacked on top of each other to create a raised embellishment and placed in the centre of the red and green stripe on the bottom of the card.

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. It was popped up onto the smaller circle using U-line double sided tape to complete the card.

Card of the Month Challenge Round 2 – Brrr!!!


Hey friends! Thank you for everyone that voted for me in Round 1. I have a card using High Hopes Stamps featured in this month’s Card of the Month contest Card of The Month – JUST FOR FUN! with Creative Scrapbooker magazine! Such an honor because all the creations are outstanding! Was wondering if you would all do me a favour and vote for me in Round 2, https://creativescrapbooker.ca/card-of-the-month-nov-2021/?fbclid=IwAR0TdRXPRGcVdkfuxB5BdXNFi2yCfNNW_XZnFzmSXNN4awMuHc3SXrG7i9Y#/bracket/3616656/

I made a Christmas card using Havin’ A Ball Snowman – S147 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Brr… – FDG004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Brr…. – Winter is coming soon!

Dropping A Line!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using Just Fishin’ – TLF029 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Dropping A Line – FFL013 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. High Hopes just released November “Gnome Mania”. There are so many new super adorable gnomes to choose from.

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 paper from Rust coloured cardstock to be the same size and applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut the patterned paper from Photo-Play – Camp Happy Bear. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough was used to ink around the edges. I added some thin double-sided U-line tape to this piece and popped it up onto the background. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped both the image and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Craftin Desert Diva’s – Inside Scalloped Squares dies were used to die cut the Rust coloured paper and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I cut a 3.75″ square out of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and used this to piece the 2 die-cuts together after I finished colouring in the image with Copic Markers. This made the 2 pieces more sturdy for adding double-sided tape to pop it up onto the printed background. I die-cut the sentiment using My Creative Time – Curly Frames and then ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker so that it would lay nice and flat onto the Rust coloured cardstock. I didn’t have a larger border frame, so I used my Brother Scan and Cut to create a border around the die cut. Lastly, to finish off the card, I popped this up using U-Line double-sided tape.

Toadly Awesome!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs –  Ryan The Frog Catcher from the new October release. This image also comes with 2 more sayings: “You’re unfrogetable” and “Don’t worry, be hoppy”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.  The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut and inked around the edges with a black marker. I fussy cut around the sentiment and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I applied this to some green cardstock and then repeated the process to add it to some more green cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around it and then added 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of it to pop-it up onto the card later.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut AC – Green Cardstock to the same size as the base and attached it using double-sided tape. For the inside background, I cut Reminisce – The Menagerie – Happy Frogs paper to the size of 5.25″ x 4″, 1 lime green panel – 5.25″ x 2″, 1 darker green panel, 1 medium green panel and 1 lighter green panel to the size of 5.25″ x .5″. I applied some Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness using a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush to the 2″ panel on both of the long sides. Using my Cuttlebug and various scraps of greens and browns, I die cut the grass and cattails using Lawn Fawn – Shadow Box Card Park Add-On, Lawn Fawn – Bayou Backdrop and Lawn Fawn – Meadow Backdrop: Landscape.

The card was now ready to assemble. I attached the smaller patch of grass on the right side of the frog background with glue. Next, I added the 2″ panel on the left size. Using glue, I attached each of the remaining .5″ panels, centering them in between the 2″ green panel. The 2nd layer of grass was attached with glue along the lower edge of the card and then I used scissors to cut off the pieces that were over the edges of the main background piece. I made sure that no glue was added to the tops of the grasses. I pieced the 2 cattails together using glue and then popped up the tops of them with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added some glue and inserted the 1st cattail under the top blades of grass. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the back of the boy and the net, except for the area behind the shoes and he was inserted under the top blade of grass and in front of the cattail. The other cattail was then applied to the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape for the top part of the cattail and glue was added to the remainder of the piece and added to the card. The other 2 darker blades of grass were added with some glue. Lastly, to finish off the card, the popped up sentiment was added.

Brrr!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Havin’ A Ball Snowman – S147 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Brr… – FDG004 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Brr…. – Winter is coming soon!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″. I cut out the background from Heartfelt Creations – Merry and Bright Collection and sized it to 4″ x 5.25″. Adding double-sided tape, I adhered this to some yellow cardstock. I cut around the yellow cardstock and left a very thin border. Lastly, I applied some double-sided tape and glue and attached it to the base.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and sentiment with Copic markers. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then I fussy cut around the image and the sentiment. Using a black pen, I outlined all of the edges for the image and sentiment, except in the snowy area. I peeled off the backing to the sentiment pieces and adhered them to the card front. I glued the snowman image in place at the bottom of the cut out background. I applied Stickles – Sea Glass to the Sweater cuffs and trim and a little bit in the snow at the bottom of the snowman. Stickles – HIbiscus was applied to the hat trim and pom pom. Stickles – Diamond was added to the snowballs and Stickles Crystal, Diamond and Stardust were all added to the snow to finish off the card.

Santa’s New Ride!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using Flyin’ High Santa – T093 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Here Comes Santa Claus – G272 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Santa’s giving his reindeer a rest this year as he checks out his new ride. 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 paper from Creative Memories – Glacier Paper Pack to be the same size and applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. I took a small scrap of Recollections – Black cardstock and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker so that it would become a sticker. With my Cuttlebug and Joy Crafts – Lin & Len Design 1201/0027, I die cut the silhouette out of the black paper and then peeled off the backing and placed it directly to the bottom of the card. Stampendous – Snowflakes – Chunky White was sprinkled over top of the card and melted from the bottom of the card using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped both the image and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I cut the sentiment in half using my cutter and ran it through the Xyron Create a Sticker. I placed the sticker on top of some Recollections – Black cardstock and cut it again using my small cutting tool. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. With a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen, I coloured in the candy cane swirls on the airplane and small circles. Once it was dry, I used Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear to go over the big yellow gumdrop, the swirls on the propeller, the candy cane swirls, small circles on the plane and the star on the tree to add some glitter. For Santa’s cuffs, coat trim and hat, 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. For Santa’s pop pom, I applied a little bit of Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and then heat embossed it with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool.

The Santa image and sentiment were both popped up onto the background using 3M double-sided tape to complete the card.

Sharing a card I made today using this adorable witch from All Dressed Up Digital Designs – Magical Day. This adorable little witch is all ready for Hallowe’en!

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and die cut with Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. On the left side, I used the following: Echo Park – I Love Halloween – Cut to the size of 5.5″ x 1.5″ and then I applied double-sided tape to the back and attached the spider Decorative Ribbon (07-3018478). Then, I used, double-sided tape and attached it directly to the base. I cut paper from the same paper pack to be 5.5″ x 2″ and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin. I applied this to the right side of the card using double-sided tape. For the centre, I cut orange cardstock to the size of 5.5″ x 1″ and Craft Consortium – Happy Haunting paper, cut to the size of 5.5″ x .75″. I inked all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin and then layered them using double-sided tape over top of the other 2 prints.

Santa’s Coming!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Motorin’ By Santa – T094 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Coming To Town – G271 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Santa’s motoring through town to bring everyone some Christmas Cheer!

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 paper from Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to be the same size as the base and inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. I applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. AC – Black cardstock was cut to 5.5″ x .75″ and adhered to the bottom using double-sided tape. I die cut the village using my Cutttlebug, Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and Village Edges dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I coloured in the homes and put some yellow cardstock behind for the windows. Then I took the little doors, coloured them in and inset them back into the die cuts. Once this was done, I added Gina K Designs – Glitz Glitter Gel – Iridescent to the hills and Stickles – Diamond to the roof tops.

With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped both the image and the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. I added Stickles – Xmas Red to the Holly on the motorbike and Stickles – Diamond to the pop pom on Santa’s hat. Using my Cuttlebug, I die cut the sentiment using Whimsy Stamps – Quick Strips Die Set. I ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it on some red cardstock. Then using my cutter, I cut around it leaving a slim border.

Once everything was dry, it was time to assemble the remainder of the card. I applied the houses directly to the base over top of the road. The Santa image and sentiment were both popped up onto the background using 3M double-sided tape.

Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Pilgrim Boy from the new September release. This image also comes with 2 other sentiments “Happy Harvest” and “It’s turkey time”.  Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up soon and I’m looking forward to having a nice big turkey! Yum! Yum!

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut. I used a black marker to ink around the edges of the image.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. Echo Park Paper Co. – Farmhouse Kitchen paper was cut to the same size as the base and applied using double-sided tape. I fussy cut P13 – The Four Seasons – Autumn paper and applied it to the left corner using double-sided tape and glue. I thought the little squirrel was adorable, so from the same paper pack, I fussy cut around it too. The sentiment was fussy cut and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin. I then ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to Momenta – Cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around it and applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin around the edges. The images and sentiment were then all popped up on the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To finish off the card, I edged around all sides using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo.

Winter Fun!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Bearly Swooshin’ – T202 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Roundin’ Up – G190 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Winter was always a fun time for me growing up. We had so many outdoor rinks and played so many winter sports. I tried X-Country skiing, but in no way would ever attempt downhill skiing, I was dangerous enough on X-Cross Country skis. I wonder it that’s why everyone I ever went skiing with would only go once with me. LOL!

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 background paper from Recollections – Burgundy cardstock to the same size as the base and used double-side tape to apply it directly to it. Photo-Play – O Canada 2 – Ice Rink paper was cut to the size of 5.75″ x 5.75″ and inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness. I applied this directly to burgundy background using double-sided tape. Using Hero Arts – Infinity Dies – Rounded Rectangle dies and my Cuttlebug, I die cut the following: Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card, Recollections – Burgundy cardstock, AC – Green Cardstock and Recollections – White cardstock.

The image and sentiment were stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and used a Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to create the snow in the sky and whites of the bear’s eyes. Sakura Glaze – Black Pen was used for the eyes and nose. Just love the embossed look those 2 pens give to an image. Lastly, I added some Stickles – Diamond and some Clear Glitter glue for the snow. Once the glitter was all dry, I attached the finished image to the burgundy rounded rectangle with 3M VHB double-sided tape to pop it up. Then, I applied 3M double-sided tape onto the back of the larger rectangle to pop it up on the pictured background. The sentiment was inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness and I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it on top of the small green rectangle. I added 3 layers of the 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the one side to pop it up and some glue and placed it on top of the popped-up coloured image. Lastly, to complete the card, I added some YNS Gumdrops.

Merry Little Christmas!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called The Most Wonderful Gift Of All – D18038 and for the sentiment Happiness Is Time Spent With A Good Friend – D20009. Do you remember playing with your train sets at Christmas time? I remember playing with my brothers and cousins sets. It was always so much fun watching the trains go around the tracks.

 

To make this card I used a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. For the background paper, I used Recollections – Burgundy cardstock cut to the same size as the base. The background layer was cut from Carta Bella – Santa’s Workshop paper, cut to the size of 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness was used to ink around the edges and it was attached to the burgundy background using double-sided tape. My Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Die was used to die-cut the Recollections – Burgundy cardstock for the background to go behind the coloured image. This was popped up onto the main background with 3M double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. With my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto this die cut. I then taped the die cut back over the paper and coloured in the image using Copic markers. This allowed me to keep a thin white border around the coloured image. Stickles – Diamond was used to fill in the area on the inside of the tracks to represent a snowy base. I used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen to add some snow to the little trees and some of the roof tops. Once the Stickles was all dry, I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink. This was embossed using my Marvy Heat Embossing Tool and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. I added 3M double-sided tape to the back of the coloured image and popped it up.

Lastly, I placed some washi-tape onto white cardstock and trimmed it to have a thin white border. I ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker so that it would lay flat and placed it onto some Recollections – Burgundy cardstock. Using my paper trimmer, I trimmed around the edges and them popped it up onto the background using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish off the card.

Woodland Gnome!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Woodland Gnome Girl from the new August release. This little gnome is keeping calm even with little bees flying around. I know if it was me, I’d be running for cover. LOL!

 

This image also comes with 2 other sentiments, “You gno-me too well” and “Just because”.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using by Brother Scan and Cut, I cut around the image leaving a small white border. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. PhotoPlay – Gnome for the Holidays Thanksgiving paper was cut to the same size as the base and attached using double-sided tape. Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper was cut to the size of 5.5″ x 2.5″ and glued onto the sunflower paper in the centre. The image was popped up and placed onto the centre of the yellow background paper. Using my Cuttlebug, die cut from Lawn Fawn – Simple Grassy Hillsides and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper, I cut the grass. I fussy cut around the printed sentiment and used Copic YGO1 to fill in the background and to go around the fussy cut. I ran this piece through my Xyron Create a Sticker because I wanted the sentiment to lay nice and flat on the grass background. The grass was then centred and popped up on the card. All of the background layers were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness before placing them onto the card. Lastly, to complete the card I added in a few bees from Sprinkletz Embellishments – Bubble Bees.

Sorry You’re Hurting!!


Sharing a card I made using Clearly Whimsy Stamps – Get Well Dragons – DP1034 for a colleague that had a knee operation recently. I wanted to make a fun card to cheer him up a bit and thought this was the perfect image to make it happen.

To make the card, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then fussy cut around it leaving a thin white border. I stamped all of the sentiments onto black cardstock using Versamark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail powder. The embossing powders were all heated with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The smaller sentiments were all die cut using my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals. For the background, I used my Cuttlebug and Sizzix Rounded Tags dies to die cut the background paper – Asuka Studio – Sparkly Sky and black cardstock. I die cut the grass using Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders and Sizzix Rounded Tags. I inked the top border of the grass with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint.

The card was now ready to assemble. I started with a base card of 5.5″ x 4.5″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. I applied double-sided tape to the back of the black die cut, The patterned paper and the grass cut and applied them all directly to the card. I ran 2 of the “Ouch!” die cuts through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached them to the top of the card.  Using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I popped up the image and 2 other sentiments to finish off the card.

Frightfully Delightful!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Frankie – TT021 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Frightfully Delightful – FF054 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Frankie is all set for Hallowe’en this year with his little pumpkin full of candy. We used to use a pillow case when we were younger to get a lot more goodies when we went Trick or Treating. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with stamping the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Using my Brother Scan and Cut, I cut around the image leaving a small white border. I coloured in the image and then used Copic C0 to go around all of the edges. I fussy cut around the sentiment and applied Copic Y17 around the edges. I put this through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then applied it to some scrap yellow cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around the sentiment.

Using my Cricut Explore, I die cut the Haunted House from the Holiday Cakes Cricut Cartridge and the Haunted Tree from the October 31 Cricut Cartridge. I decided to cut the second layer of the haunted house out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card rather than solid cardstock. This gave me the chance to colour in the windows, doors, shutters and moon the way I wanted to in order to make it more spooky with Copic Markers. The moon was coloured in with a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Hickory Smoke, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber and Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes. Using glue, I pieced everything together for the Haunted house.

My card was now ready to assemble. I started with a 6″ x 6″ base card made from AC Cardstock – White. I cut the bats background to the same size from Echo Park – I Love Halloween paper pack. I applied this directly to the base with double-sided tape. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Hickory Smoke and a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush I inked around all of the edges and across the top of the card to darken the sky a little bit. Next, I die cut the grass using my Cuttlebug, Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper and Lawn Fawn – Simple Stitched Hillside Borders. I applied this directly to the bottom of the card using liquid glue. I applied glue to the haunted tree and haunted house and then applied both of them directly to background. Frankie and the sentiment were both popped up on the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
