Basketball Birthday!!

Today I’m sharing  Basketball Player (KLM Digital Designs) image from the September release. When creating this card, I thought of my younger brother who used to eat, sleep and dream about basketball all the time when he was young. You barely ever saw him without a basketball in his hand. He was always on the basketball court, shooting hoops or playing games. He actually excelled in a lot of sports and won the trophy for all around athlete in High School. Of course, that was many, many, many years ago. LOL!

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. The image was then die cut with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers and then coloured in with Copic markers.  For the sentiment, I brought the original digital image into Microsoft Word and then used the developer tools to crop it so that it went into 3 lines to fit my image better. Then I printed it out and fussy cut around it. The sentiment was then layered onto some chocolate brown cardstock and fussy cut again.

For the basketball background paper, I downloaded from the site listed below and then printed it out on my printer. I die cut it with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies then glued directly onto the The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 5.5″ x 4.25″ cardstock base. The main image was adhered directly to the chocolate brown cardstock. I added a small basketball brad and then popped up the entire image onto the background using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. The sentiment was also popped up.

Pumpkin Kisses!!

Today I’m sharing  Pumpkin Girl (KLM Digital Designs) image from the October release. This little lady has her pumpkin all picked out for Thanksgiving. Now she can make some pumpkin pies and then carve out the pumpkin for Hallowe’en. Here in Canada, we celebrate our Thanksgiving this weekend. So Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and then fussy cut it in a few places. It was then coloured in with Copic markers. The sentiment was printed out on plain white cardstock and then I fussy cut around it, in order to spread it out. Then I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to some black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around it again.

The backgrounds were die cut with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers. The printed background was then inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin.

To assemble the card, I began with a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. The 2 background pieces were adhered to the base using double-sided tape. The image and sentiment were both popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, some Kraftin’ Kimmie – Krafty Dots were added as embellishments.

Gnome Happy Halloween Pop-up 2

 

I love these vampires and the Sliding Window die. They make a perfect spot to put a McDonalds gift card for Halloween as most areas around here aren’t trick-or-treating. Wise choice. My grands are getting one of these.

This KLM Digital Designs gnome is colored with Copic markers, and is attached to the pop-up paper from Martha Stewart’s Halloween pad. The base and slider are Stampin’UP Cherry Cobbler.
