Wedding Card for Cousin 2017


Sharing the card I made for my younger cousin who just got married. It was a beautiful wedding and everyone had a lot of fun.

It was great to see all of the family and meet a lot of my cousins that I haven’t seen in years and to see all of their children too!

For their wedding card, I wanted it to be special, so I thought a Snow Globe would be something unique for them to have. I just wish that I had used a little more glitter for the snow.

I started off making my card by stamping the images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink.

Used Copic markers to colour in the image and then I fussy cut around them to add them to the background. I stamped the top of the wedding dress and part of the veil again using glitter paper and added it to the image as well.

For the background I first cut out the circle from Strathmore Bristol Paper – Vellum Surface – 100 lb. using my dies listed below and then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean for the sky and clouds and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn for the grass. Stamped sentiment using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Here is what the image looked like before I created the snow globe.

This is a close up of how it looked inside the globe with the glitter added to it.

Here is the finished card. I’ve added 2 images as my camera didn’t take a very good shot the first time. It’s a little dark in the first image.

Beary Merry Christmas Bears


Hi There,

Just getting an early start on this years Christmas cards. I make over 40 cards every year!

All cards are made using Too Cute By Jessica – Little Lovelies A Beary Merry Christmas. .svg design is by Jessica Owens.

I uploaded the patterns for the bears into Cricut Design Space and cut using my Cricut Explore.

Inked all of the edges for the bears and accessories and then ran the pieces through my Xyron’s for easy assembly. Highlighted the eyes with Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

For the first bear, sentiment was stamped using Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Sentiment is from Jaded Blossom – Season’s Tweetings.

Used Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies. I ran the die half way through my Big Shot and then turned it around to get the ribbon edge on both sides.

Patterned Paper – American Crafts – Merry and Bright 6 x 6″ pad and American Crafts – Holiday 6 x 6″ pad. The top patterned paper was cut out using Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames. I also used the same die for the foam used to make this a shaker card. Filled the shaker card with Creatology Glitter.
