Hi There,

I printed the image and coloured it in using my Spectrum Noir markers. Details of colouring image are below.

Then I fussy cut out the image.

I wanted her to look like she was floating in water and mystical, so I used watercolour paper and Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst Turquoise and Ultramarine Blue. As the paper was drying I sprinkled some Sea salt onto the paper and just love the effect that it created. I also used my hot gun to dry the paper a little faster.

Positioned circle die from Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the portion of the background that I wanted.

Next I cut out the dark blue background using AC Specialty Paper 5 x 7 foil with die cut from My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.

Used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the larger circle and then embossed the circle with We R Memory Keepers Polka Dot Embossing Folder. Inked around the edges with Stampin Up! Tempting Turquoise Ink.

Lastly, I used the new free embossing folder that came with Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine – Issue 148. I used DCWV Cardstock Neutrals paper and then once the image was embossed I used very light sandpaper to go over the image and bring out the white core to enhance the image.

I layered all of the above using 3M VHB tape.

Lastly, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from Jennifer Ellory – Bake a Cake Clear Stamps with VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail

Spectrum Noir Markers Used:

Hair: GB1, GB3, GB6

Eyes: LG2, Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen

Wings: BT2, TB2 (Added Wink of Stella – Clear for sparkle)

Dress: BT2, TB2, IB2 (Added Wink of Stella – Clear for sparkle)

Hi there,

Back to share a card that I made using Too Cute By Jessica Bears from  Too Cute by Jessica – Birthday-Girl-Bears

Sentiment on front of card is from JadededBlossom stamps “Party Animal”.

I made the card so that the 2 front panels opened up to reveal the sentiment.

Here are some close-ups.

The bears were really fuzzy, but I put them through the Xyron, so they look a little bit scruffy. LOL! I still like how they turned out though. Hope you do too!

My aunt really loved her card. Made me very happy!

I used Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore to cut out all of the pieces. For the bears, I used the scoring tool and mulberry paper. Then I just outlined the pieces so that I could see them better. Wet around the outlines and pulled my bear pieces apart to make them fuzzy. Added some brown chalk to give the edges some added dimension.

On the inside, I added this sentiment from  “Whatnot Sentiments Set Three – Your Next Stamp”.

Birthday Card – It’s All About Zoo


Hi There,

I went to the Kitchener Scrapfest this year and had a fantastic time. They had a contest for creating a card that matched a design layout and we had to pick a paint chip to match our colour scheme too! I was SOOOO HAPPY, when I found out I’d won the contest! What an honour to be picked among so many talented and wonderful ladies! I’d like to thank all of them SO much!

To make my card, I used the little elephant from Craftin Desert Diva’s – It’s All About Zoo. I inked the image with Memento – Tuxedo Black and coloured the image in with Spectrum Noir Markers.

Here is a close up.

Highlight for eyes: Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen

Graduation Card


Hi There,

Sharing a graduation card that I made using Too Cute By Jessica – Graduation Pals.

Boy-Graduate

I thought this file was so cute! Used Cricut Design Space and Cricut Explore to cut out the pieces. Then ran everything through my Xyron. Used some inks to ink the edges and put the card together on blue Recollections Card Stock. Lost his little nose somehow after I had cut it out! LOL! So, I used the cut out to draw it in with my Zig marker and then drew him a little mouth.

Used pink chalk for the cheeks.

The sentiment is from My Creative Time – Happy Everything Stamp Set. Used Versamark – Onyx black and then Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder for “graduation”.

Used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen for the eyes.

Hope you like it!
