Happy Father’s Day to my Dad


Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there today!

Sharing a card that I made for my dad who LIVES to fish! Saw these characters on the Marjorieanne site and just knew that I had to have them.

It reminded me of when I used to go fishing with my dad when I was younger.

Used Cricut Explore and and file “fishingwithdad_marjorieanndesigns039887” .svg cutting files for characters, scene and fish, on the front and inside of the card. Inked around all edges with various Tim Holtz Distress Ink colours and used Xyron Create-a-sticker to aid in putting all of the little pieces together.

Created clouds and background water with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie.

Background paper – Gone Fishing PA-0909 – American Traditions Designs.

Inside the card.

Card background is actually white, but it shows up as a light grey here.

Sentiment is from – Your Next Stamp – Keepin’ it Reel – CYNS388.

My dad loved it! Hope you do too!

Hi There,

Here is my finished card from the Kit and Clowder April Markers Class.

Image is from: Mo’s Digital Pencil called “Sparkle”.

Here is a close-up.

On the inside I used this sentiment:

Also made this little kitten out of wool for my Secret Pal as she said she liked cats. Making 2 pom-poms and following the directions from “Klutz – Pom-Pom Kitties”. Thought it turned out to be adorable.

For the card background I used paper from Recollection Signature – Kaitlin. LOVE this paper. I then edged the sides with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers. Along the top, I used punch from Creative Memories – Scallop Stitch. Then used the Sookwang tape and added Glitter Ritz – Ice Blue Micro Fine Glitter. Next I weaved some white ribbon through the base of the scallops.

Image was coloured in using a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noir markers.

Stamped the sentiments and added them to the card. Hope you like it!

Using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space, I uploaded the images and then cut the pieces out for the cat and wreath.

I decided to add some layers to the wreath using Martha Stuart branch punch and then adding some Xmas Red stickles to make some holly.

For the eyes, I used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.  I drew in some eyelashes with Pigma Micron 01 black marker, but you can’t really see them. Thought it would be a cool idea to use black thread for the whiskers to show up.

Sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail.

Stamp used is from Jaded Blossom Stamps – Meow and Forever.

Die cuts are from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies.

Background paper is from American Crafts – Holiday – 6 x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) paper pack.

Surprise everybody!!! I am guest designer for today on Miss Kate Cuttables. I was so happy when I discovered her site a few years back. I check back everyday to see what the new Freebie file is and I use her cuts a lot in my cards. When I found out that I was being offered a guest spot on her site, I was SUPER excited. I love doing all kinds of crafts and especially cardmaking. I make a lot of Birthday and Christmas cards every year. For today, I decided to showcase some Christmas cards I made using these 2 files from Miss Kate Cuttables. (Santa Paws and Frosty Fun).

For the first card I used the files which can be found here (http://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/santa-paws-cat.php#).

For the face on the cat, I used Peachy Keen Stamps – PK110 Here Kitty Kitty Face Assortment. Used StazOn – Jet Black ink and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Brightened up the eyes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Adding a touch of pink, green and red markers to accentuate the eyes and mouth.

Patterned paper is from Bo Bunny –  Silver and Gold Collection Paper – 6 x 6 in pad.

Square stitched backgrounds is cut out using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. Went around paper background edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo.
