Grad Gnome!!


My nephew graduated and I couldn’t resist sharing this adorable little Graduation Gnome With Diploma from KLM Digital Designs that I made for him. The image comes with 3 different sentiments, “Congrats Grad!”, which I’ve used on my card and also, “Congratulations” and “Today is your day!”.

To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.

I used Hammermill paper to create the base shape of the card 8.5″ x 4.25″. I scored the paper at 4.25″. Then I used a mixture of Tim Holtz inks to create the background. Once I was satisfied with the look, I used Hammerill paper, my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Confetti Panel Die and popped this die cut up over the coloured background using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The sentiment was die cut using MFT – Die-namics Pierced Fishtail Flags, inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door and then popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

The sentiment was popped up the same way to complete the card.

Make it Rain!


Sharing a fun birthday card that I made for my husband this week using Make It Rain – CYNS728 (#YourNextStamp) for the main image and sentiment. I thought it would be fun to put the image inside a balloon too! Now if only that could be Lottery Winnings he was holding onto. LOL!

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple lime green card base, sized at 5.5″ x 4.25″.  For the bottom layer I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper and multiple Tim Holtz inks which I have listed below. Then I die-cut the top layer with my Cuttlebug and #Your Next Stamp – Confetti Panel Die. Hammermill paper was used for this also. I mounted the bottom layer directly onto  the base card and then attached the top die-cut layer using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

For both of the sentiments, I used my MISTI, VeraMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail on black cardstock. Then a Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat emboss the powder.

The balloon was die cut using My Creative Time – Stitched Circle Balloon Dies MCT-D137 to cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card which I then stamped the main image onto using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. The image was coloured with Copic Markers.

To assemble the remainder of the card, the image and sentiment were popped up on top with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Some ribbon was tied to the bottom of the balloon and some Kraftin’ Kimmie dots were used.
