Dancing Snowmen Friends


Sharing a card that I made using High Hopes Rubber Stamps: Dancing Snowman Friends – TT139 and High Hopes Rubber Stamps: Holly Jolly KK048.

Went away for a really fun Scrapbooking weekend with the ladies from One Crazy Stamper and Scrapbook Niagara. One of the contests was to come up with card or Scrapbooking layout using the design and papers provided. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to do it again next year!

Here is the creation that I cam up with.

Close-up of the snowmen:

Stamped the images with Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI. I then coloured all of the images in with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. Then added in some snow using Wink of Stella – Glitter White, Nuvo Glitter Accents and sprinkling on some DecoArt Glamour Dust. For the sky I used Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point.

Die Cuts:

Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Ovals.

Sizzix Framelits – 561152, Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Snowflakes

My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles

Paper:

Bo-Bunny’s – Mistletoe Twas the Night – ITEM#13001299 and Bo-Bunny’s Mistletoe Greetings – ITEM#13001294.

Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper – 8.5 x 11″

Edged around paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony.

Sentiment was stamped using my MISTI and VersaMark – Onyx Black, embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Hope you like it!

Miss Kate Cuttables – Guest Designer


 

 

Surprise!  I’m a guest designer for Miss Kate Cuttables again this year! Miss Kate Cuttables offers awesome freebie designs everyday and I always look forward to them. I also love their designs and their new paper is great too! I just had to have it as it goes so well with their designs!

I LOVE Christmas and make over 55 cards every year to give to family and friends. I thought why not start early this year and so I made a Christmas themed card for my guest spot.

Using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space I uploaded Miss Kate Cuttables “boy-winter-deer-1016” (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/boy-winter-deer.php). I thought he was sooo cute! Added some Ranger Glossy Accents to his nose and eyes.  Wink of Stella – GL Green 040 was used on the ear muffs.

Here is a close-up of the little reindeer.

 

Also, uploaded one of my all time favourite trees from Miss Kate Cuttables – snowy-tree-10-07-15 (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/freebie-of-the-day-snowy-tree.php). I’ve used this tree on so many of my cards. Added some glitter with Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.

The background paper is from Miss Kate Cuttables – “mkd-winter-woodland-paper-collection” – winter woodland reindeer.jpg (https://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/winter-woodland-paper-collection.php). Printed out the digital image on my HP Printer and then sized it to 6″ x 6″ and edge around the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint.

Behind the reindeer the paper is from American Crafts – Holiday collection – 6 x 6″ (15.2 cm x 15.2 cm). Used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to cut out the square and then edged around the sides of the small square with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers

The hills were made with Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper – 8.5″ x 11″ and Lawn Fawn – Lawn Cut dies.  Then used  Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass along the tops of the hills.

“Merry Christmas” ribbon is by Celebrate It!

Miss Kate Cuttables, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your guest design team again this year. It truly is a great honour and it made me so happy!

 

Happy New Year Card for Vet


Happy New Year’s Everyone!

Just completed this year’s card for the vet for New Year’s from Boo! I saw this stamp from the Paper Shelter Happy Meow Year – Digital Stamp and laughed. I knew I had to use it to make a special card from “Boo” our beautiful little lady.

All images were coloured in with Copic alcohol markers. I brought in the background paper and then merged the digi onto it using Adobe Elements.

Here is the front of the card.
