Love and Cake!


Sharing a birthday card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Chef Gnome – Cake from the new June 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “If we are what we eat, well, I’m pretty sweet!” and “If the cake fits, eat it!”. My mom always made our birthdays very special by creating special cake designs every year for each of our birthdays growing up. As a child, I never liked cake, but my mom used to wrap some change into tin foil and hide it in the cake. When all of my friends left, I would take a knife and cut through the cake to get all of the change out to put into my piggy bank. LOL! Unfortunately for me, I developed a sweet tooth when I got older and met my husband who has a really big sweet tooth. Only difference is he manages to keep the weight off. LOL!

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. I added some Wink of Stella – Clear to the icing and then I fussy cut around the coloured image. Using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine and Die-Namics MFT-489 PCD Fishtail Figs STX dies, I die cut the sentiment and also some Aqua cardstock.

The 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base was created using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardsstock. I cut the patterned paper from Echo Parks Paper Co. – Birthday Wishes to the size of 5.5″ x 3.5″ and attached it to the centre of the base using double-sided tape. Two .5″ strips were cut from Yellow Cardstock and then put through my Xyron with one strip attached at the top and one strip on the bottom of the card. The Aqua die cut was added to the right side using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mustard Seed was used to ink around all of the edges of the card. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the image and the sentiment and popped them both up onto the background. YNS Gumdrops – Celebration Sparkly Gumdrops were added to the top and bottom strips. Lastly, to finish off my card, I ran Art Impresisons – 5335 – Kitchen Mini Dies through the Anna Griffin Empress Mini die cutting machine using Crafter’s Companion Luxury Cardstock – Silver. I ran the 2 pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached them both to the sentiment tag.

Thank You!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Thank You card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Gladiolas – TDG038 for the image. We are super excited to re-release 9 previously retired images today. This is the first image of many more to come!

It’s spring and my husband is busy in his garden, planting some beautiful flowers. Every year, he asks me what colours I would like to have in the garden and then he puts together a gorgeous display. Thank goodness he is taking care of them, because a green thumb is certainly something I was not blessed with. 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 Crafter’s Consortium – The Essential Craft Papers – Ink Drops – Ocean to be the same size as the base and adhered it with double-sided tape. I cut 2 .5″ strips of Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock and adhered a piece on each side of the card using glue. I die cut the words “Thank You” using the same Matte Gold foil cardstock, PaperCrafter Today – 15 Die Cut Sentiment Set and my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine. I ran the words through my Xyron Create a Sticker and set them to the side.

The image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured in with Copic Markers. I fussy cut around the image and added some U-Line double-sided tape to the back of it. The images was then popped up onto card. I added the words “Thank You” that I had turned into stickers earlier to complete the card.

High Tides


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Beach Gnome from the new May 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Life is better at the beach” and “Enjoy the little things”.

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. I created the pattern on his shirt to make it look a little wild. Using scissors, I fussy cut around the coloured image. I also fussy cut around the sentiment, splitting it into 2 parts. I ran them through a Xyron Create a Sticker and adhered them directly to Recollections – Black cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around the sentiments. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the backs of the sentiment and image and set them aside.

I created a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardsstock. I cut another panel to be the same size as the card base. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Squeezed Lemonade ink, a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Sunburst stencil, I created the sunny background. I did this by first laying down the yellow background and then putting the stencil over top to make the sun rays a little brighter. Using Krafty Kolours – Sandy Shores ink, I created the sandy shore. For the waves, I thought the paper from Bo Bunny – Down by the Sea Collection was perfect. Using the coloured image as a guide for placement, I cut along the wavy lines with the piece measuring approximately 1.75″ x 4.25″. Using a finger dauber and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough, I inked along the top and bottom of the waves to remove the white. Using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush, I added a bit of tint to the patterned paper. Using glue, I attached it to the background panel. I added in a small shadow under the sandals with Copic markers.

The card was now ready to assemble. I attached the panel to the base card using double-sided tape. I removed the tape backing from the image and sentiment and popped them both up onto the card. Using a button shank remover, I removed the backs to the Dress It Up Buttons. I applied some glue to the backs of each of them and placed them onto the card to finish it off.

Birthday Hi!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Just Cruisin’ – SLF022 for the image and Just Motorin’ By – G309 for the sentiment. The gnomes are out again and this time their motoring by with a birthday “Hi!” for you.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. To create my background sky, I cut the Echo Parks Paper Co. – Birthday Wishes cardstock to the size of 5.5″ x 1.75″. With Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow – 6″ x 6″, I made 3 cuts. 5.5″ x .75″, 5.5″ x 1.25″ and with my Cuttlebug and Card Deco Essentials – Slimline Landscape Borders die, the tree landscape. I ran all of the pieces through my Xyron Creative Station and Xyron Create a Sticker. Using my Cuttlebug again and Recollections – Black cardstock, I die cut the road using My Favourite Things – Die-Namics – Open Road die.

The image and sentiment were both stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I fussy cut around the image and the sentiment and then added U-Line double-sided tape to pop them up onto the card later.

The card was now ready for assembly, starting at the bottom of the card, I applied the first piece of grass. I measured the distance of the road and then applied the second piece of green slightly lower than where the road would end. The sky piece was added next and then the tree scape. I used my E25 marker to make the tree trunks brown. I applied double-sided tape to the road piece and adhered it to the base. I popped up the image and the sentiment onto the background. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tumbled Glass and a dauber were used to ink around the edges of the sky to complete the card.

Hedgies Happy Birthday!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Hedgie Stack – TDG027 for the image and Mini Sentiment Set #1 – HLL001 for the sentiment. These little hedgies are excited to wish someone special a very Happy Birthday!

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 Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold cardstock background paper to the size of 5.5″ x 5.5″ and adhered it directly to the base using double-sided tape. AITOH Origami – Print Chiyogami – Butterflies paper was cut to the size of 5.25″ x 5.25″ and glued on top of the gold paper. Using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and PinkFresh Essentials: Folk Edge Squares, I die cut another square from Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I popped up the gold die cut onto the floral background using U-Line double-sided tape. I 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 used a Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen to create some more texture in the fur by just dabbing it everywhere. I’m hoping that it looks like little spikes at the end of their fur. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the coloured image and popped it up onto the gold die-cut. I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Using a 3/4″ punch, I punched out the circle surrounding the sentiment. Then, using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, I die cut a slightly larger circle out of a scrap piece of gold paper from Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it directly to the gold circle. Using some U-Line double-sided tape, I popped it up onto the coloured image. Lastly, to complete my card, I added in some PinkFresh Studio – Essentials Jewel Mix and flowers gems from the Dollar Store.

Keep On Swinging!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Tire Swing Gnome from the new April 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “May your toes touch the sky” and “Why can’t we just swing into Friday?” I think it would be good if we could just swing into Friday and have fun weekends all the time! Don’t you?

Here it is in action.

 

I used The Paper Studio – Primary Simply Solids (4.25″ x 5.5″) for my base card. I wanted to create an interactive swinging card and I found a video on You Tube from My Favourite Things called “Creating an Interactive Swing Card” by Stephanie on Mar 7, 2019. I didn’t have the dies, so I used the video for inspiration and decided to create my own mechanism and die cuts. Using my Cricut, I took a rectangle and added a bunch of circles and then welded them all together to create the tree. I also created the swing mechanism by joining a circle and thin long rectangle and then welding them together. The grass was also die cut on my Cricut Explore. I die cut the trees and swing mechanism using Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the grass with Recollections – Green cardstock. I coloured in the trees with Copic markers. Using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, I created the clouds with Lawn Fawn Cuts – Cloudy Stencil. Using the mechanism for placement, I die cut a circle into the cloud background.

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 inked around the edges with a black marker. I cut the sentiment with my cutter and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I attached it to some Recollections – Black cardstock and cut around it again.

The card was now ready to assemble. I applied a small circle double-side pop-dot to the centre of the hole cut earlier on the cloud paper and attached it to a slightly larger circle at the back of the cloud paper. Using my EK Success Powder tool, I went around all of the sides of the pop-up to remove any stickiness. I applied the mechanism over top of the pop-dot and attached some extra two-sided tape. I applied another die cut circle over top of the raised pop-dot. This allowed the mechanism to now move freely back and forth on the page. Using double-sided tape on the back of the cloud paper, I applied the double-sided tape everywhere except around the mechanism and popped it onto the base card. I ran the grass die cut through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it directly to the cloud base. I took the 2 tree die cuts that I had created earlier and coloured and glued them both together. I attached the gnome image to the mechanism with double-sided tape and cut off the extra length not required. I added some double-sided tape behind the trees on both sides and only part way along the top on both sides leaving the area for the swinging mechanism free. This was then popped up onto the cloud background. I applied some U-Line double-sided tape and popped up the sentiment on top of the trees. Lastly, I added a penny to the back of the gnome to give it more momentum when swinging.

Ellie & Friends!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Easter card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Ellie & Friends – TDG025 for the image and Happy Easter! – F096 for the sentiment. We are celebrating our new “Spring Fever Release” this month and who couldn’t love this adorable image!

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 flower cardstock from Echo Park – Welcome Easter at 6″ x 1.75″ and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper to 6″ x 4.5″. I applied double-side tape and adhered both pieces directly to the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet ink was used to ink around all of the edges of the base card. Using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and my Cuttlebug, I die cut Momenta – Cardstock and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. 3M double-sided tape was applied to the back of this and it was popped up onto the base card.

Using PinkFresh Studios – Essentials: Blanket Stitched Square Die Set and my Cuttlebug, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I stamped the main image onto this die cut and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers and then U-Line double-side tape was applied to the back of it. This was popped up over top of the yellow square.

I fussy cut around the sentiment and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet. I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it to the Momenta – Cardstock and fussy cut around it again. I applied Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D Foam Strips to the back of the sentiment layers and added it to the bottom right of the card. Lastly, I added in 3 DoodleBug Design Inc. – Sprinkles Spring Assortment to complete the card.

Gone Fishing!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fishing Shack – TLF038  for the image and Happy Birthday Script – FDG028  for the sentiment. I hope you have enjoyed all of the wonderful new stamps from our New Spring Release called “This and That” this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I know I have. This fishing shack is a wonderful image for all of those loved one’s in your life who love fishing and would be perfect for a Father’s Day card too!

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 fish cardstock from Photo-Play – Camp Happy Bear at 5.5″ x 1.25″ and Stampin’ UP! Wood Textures paper to 5.5″ x 3.25″. I wanted to keep both of these piece completely flat on the base so I ran both pieces through my Xyron Creative Station and adhered both pieces to the base card, starting with the fishing pattern. I die cut some dark chocolate cardstock to the size of 4.25″ x 3.25″ using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and popped it up onto the base using U-Line double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug again and this time, My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers at the size of 4.25″ x 3″, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I stamped the main image onto this die cut and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers and then double-side tape was applied to the back of it. This was  attached to the card over top of the larger rectangle. I fussy cut around the sentiment and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I applied it to the dark chocolate card stock and fussy cut around it again. U-Line double-sided tape was applied to the bottom half of the sentiment and liquid glue to the top portion. This was then adhered to the bottom of the card. I added in 3 little fishes from Buttons Galore & More – Sprinkletz Fish Tank to complete the card.

Ex-Cuse Me!!


Sharing a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law this year using C.C. DesignsRoberto’s Rascals – Grouchy Pets and Roberto’s Rascals – Cutie Cats. Her name is Kitty and I always try to find fun images with cats to make her card. LOL!

To make the card, I began with the base of 3.5″ x 8.5″ Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock. I also die cut the Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock with the Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Marquee Die and my Cuttlebug. Using multiple Picket Fence – Blending Brushes and Tim Holtz Distress Inks listed below, I created my own background. Using the window pieces from the die cut, I traced around them onto Doodlebug – hey cupcake (6″x6″) paper and fussy cut around them. I applied some glue along the edges and attached them to the back of the panel.  Then I applied double-sided tape to the backing and attached this to the base.

Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, the images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and coloured in with Copic Markers. Once everything was coloured, I fussy cut around each of them. The sentiments were stamped onto Recollections – Black cardstock with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail and my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Using my cutter, I cut around each of the sentiments. I added double-sided tape to the back of the images and sentiments and popped them all up onto the base card. Finally, I added some Kraftin’ Kimmie Pop Dots.

Inside of the card: 

For the inside of the card, I used my large MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the sentiments from Art Impressions Glamour Pop-Ups – 5355 and Purrrfect Sentiments – HoneyBee Stamps. I ran the little kitty from the Roberto’s Rascals – Cutie Cats – C.C. Designs set that I had coloured earlier through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it directly to the card to finish everything off.

Birthday Wishes!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fairy Flight – SLF036  for the image and Birthday Wishes – FDG024  for the sentiment. There are a lot of birthdays in our family during March, friends too, and this little birthday fairy is on her way to grant one of them their special birthday wishes.

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″. Scrapbook.com – Roses Smooth Cardstock was adhered to the base using double-side tape.  I die cut Creative Memories – Mermaid Cove Designer Paper Pack using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and adhered it to the rose background using double-sided tape. Using Gina Marie Designs – Petite Looped Lace Rectangle Die Set, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card.

The image and sentiment were then stamped with my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers. I added some stars onto the dress with Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen and then used Wink of Stella – Clear over top of the flower, dress, shoes and wings. Using R85 and R83 Copic markers, I went around the edges of the die cut for the image to create a solid border. I fussy cut around the sentiment and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I attached the sentiment to Scrapbook.com – Peppermint Smooth Cardstock and fussy cut around it again. The card was now ready to finish being assembled. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the coloured image and sentiment and popped them up onto the card. Lastly, I added in some YNS Gumdrops to complete the card.

Just Hoppin By!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Mr. Frog – SLF037  for the image and Just Hoppin’ – FLL030  for the sentiment. There are so many wonderful new stamps for our New Spring Release called “This and That” at High Hopes Rubber Stamps and Mr. Frog couldn’t wait to welcome all of you to go and see!

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 Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Ombre Brights to be the same size as the base and adhered it with double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug, multiple scraps of cardstock, Recollections – Black cardstock and Forever In Time – Glam Glitter Cardstock – Ombre Brights, I cut out all of the pieces for the background using Lawn Fawn – Bayou Backdrop die set. I glued all of the little leaves onto the vines and then using 3 layers around all of the outside edges with U-Line double-sided tape, I popped up the background onto the base. I popped up the pond to the background as well after applying U-Line double-sided tape. I used some spare Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and created a boulder for the frog to sit on which I put into the middle of the pond. This was also popped up. I stamped the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers and then I fussy cut around it and the sentiment. Using a black marker, I inked around all of the edges of the frog. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron Create a Sticker and placed it onto some scrap Recollections – Black cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around it. I applied multiple layers of U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment and applied them both to the card to finish it off.

Year of the Tiger – 2022!!


Today, I’m sharing the Chinese New Year cards using stamps called Safari Digital Stamp – PickledPotpourriDigi and Cute Tiger – AlexShopsArt. Every year, I enjoy make cards and sending them out to my friends here and overseas hoping to bring them some happiness in bringing in the New Year!

To make this card I first imported the images into Microsoft Word. I sized the tiger for the front of the card and created my sentiment and then added the “Cute Tiger” for the inside of the card. I printed out 8 copies of each onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in all of the images with Copic Markers and then I fussy cut around all of the tiger faces for the front of the card. The inside of the card was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and my Cuttlebug. The letters and numbers were cut using my Cricut Explore and Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Gold cardstock. I ran all of these through my Xyron Create a Sticker and my Xyron Creative Station.

To assemble the card, I used Hot Buy – Reds – Cards and Envelopes (5.5″ x 4.25″) for my base. I placed the words and numbers onto the front of the card and added in the Tiger face in place of the “0”. I applied double-sided tape to the backs of the coloured images die-cut previously for the inside of  the card and adhered it directly to the base.

 

Altogether, I made 8 individual cards this year.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
