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.

Mother’s Day Card


Hi Everyone,

Thought I’d share the card that I made for my mom for Mother’s Day.

The stamp is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps – Snuggles and Cuddles T503.

I stamped the image twice. Once as a mask so that I could do my background first and then again with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Coloured it in with Spectrum Noir markers.

Here is a close-up.

For the sky I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie.

For the grass I used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Lucky Clover and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint. Used a little grass stamp that I have to add some texture.

Sentiment is from me created in Microsoft Word and the printed out on white cardstock. “Mom” is from My Creative Time – Mom Stamp and Die set.

Background paper is from Kaitlin – Recollections Signature 12 x12 Paper Pad.

Used Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames for the stitched rectangle and scalloped edge frame.
