A friendly dragon with birthday wishes

Hi folks,

If you are a frequent visitor, you may have seen me occasionally mention that dearly beloved plays Dungeons and Dragons. Well, the DM (dungeon master) for their group had a birthday recently and this is the card that I made for her.



I bought this stamp quite some time ago (last year I think) and had shown it to her one night when they were playing at our house. She thought it was cute and had said that when I got around to making a card with it she would love to see it. So, I thought she should be the first person to get a card made with the stamp.

card details:

  • finished size: 5.5 x 5.5 inches, kraft card stock base, textured brown bazzill card stock mats
  • patterned paper: Basic Grey "Marjolaine" (possibly my favourite paper collection ever)
  • stamped image: Whimsy Stamps "Dragon's Little Friend", coloured with Copic Markers (E93, B0000, B01, B02, B00, B000, R81, R85)
  • sentiment: Verve "Making a Statement"
  • brown satin ribbon and adhesive raindrops from my stash.
  • Spellbinders Petite Circles
  • layout: Sketch Saturday #331

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!

This wish is late

Hi folks,

Since I've been a bit late getting cards in the mail lately, I figured I should actually make a belated birthday card.





The inside of the card has the second half of the sentiment "so that you can celebrate your birthday longer".

What up Wi'atch?

Hi folks,

So, did you all get crafty on World Card Making Day? I did! I put my mind to it and spent as much time in my craft room yesterday as I could. That really only boiled down to a few hours and since I was watching Breaking Bad at the same time...Well, I didn't get any mass production of cards completed.

But I did get inspired by Breaking Bad to make THIS card. If you are familiar with the show, you'll understand the twist on one of the main characters favourite phrases.




Tee hee! I'm still giggling. AND itching to get back to the craft room to watch the final two episodes of the series!

card details:

  • finished size: 5.5 x 5.5 inches, black card stock base, CTMH Thistle Card stock for sentiment mat
  • patterned paper: Close to My Heart "Scaredy Cat"
  • stamped image: The Greeting Farm "Spooky" Kit. The little witch is coloured with Copic Markers (YG0000, YG00, YG01, YR04, YR07, YR07, N2, N4, N6, N7, N8, BV000, BV02, BV04, BV00, BV01, V06, V04, V05). I used my Sakura Clear star Gelly Roll marker to add a little sparkle to her tiara and her staff. Then I used one of my Copic Multiliners to redraw the lines in her tiara so they were more visible since the sparkle kind of hid them.
  • sentiment: Close to My Heart July 2014 Stamp of the Month "Circus Alphabet", stamped in CTMH Thistle Ink
  • embellishments: black adhesive gem from my stash (in the centre of her tiara) and CTMH Black Enamel Stars from the Scaredy Cat Assortment
  • layout: Viva La Verve October 2014 Week 1 Sketch
