Animal Tree with Rachelle Anne Miller

Hi there! I'm sharing a Christmas in July card for Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios today featuring the digital stamp, Animal Tree.


To create my card, I printed the image onto Copic friendly cardstock, cutting it down to an A2 size. Next, I masked the image and ink blended the background with Kitsch Flamingo and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide inks. I then colored the image with copic markers.

Copic Colors Used:
 Bunny: W5, W3, W1, W0
Bird: E44, E43, E42, E41
Squirrel: E25, E23, E31, E30
Red: R59, R27, R24, R14
Pink: RV13, RV10, RV000
Yellow: YR24, Y23, Y21
Green: YG67, G07, G02, G00, G000
Snow: B000, B0000


Next, I splattered white acrylic paint, thinned with water, onto my background to create a snowy effect. I then die cut the Winter Woods Overlay Die from Hello Bluebird from white cardstock and attached it over my scene with foam tape for dimension. 


To finish my card, I white heat embossed a sentiment from Typed Christmas Stamp by Hello Bluebird onto a red sentiment strip and added some die cut snowflakes. I added some clear jewels to the center of the snowflakes for the finishing touch and a little sparkle!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Teacher Appreciation with Sunny Studio

Hello! I'm over on the Sunny Studio blog with a fun project, featuring Teacher Appreciation, a versatile sentiment set that can be used not only for teachers, but for so many occasions and people in your life! For my project, I created an A2 card and a fun pencil shaped card.


For the A2 card I started with a white cardstock card base, then layered a green dotted rectangle cut from the Dots & Stripes Jewel Tones 6X6 Paper. Next, I added some fun notebook looking paper I found in my stash and stamped it with a sentiment from Teacher Appreciation in black ink, then added a little apple from  Harvest Mice . To create the pencil, I cut yellow striped paper from the  Dots & Stripes Jewel Tones 6X6 Paper using the Slimline Pennant Die. I cut 3 more pennants using kraft, guava, and silver cardstock. I created a scalloped edge using the smaller border die from the Slimline Pennant Die, then layered it over the kraft pennant. I used the Fishtail Banner Dies to create the pointed edge of the pencil. I then trimmed down the silver and guava pennants and attached to create the eraser and silver band you would find on a pencil. I added a little piece of charcoal cardstock to the end of the pencil to look like the lead. 

I attached the pencil to the card with foam tape for dimension, then white heat embossed the sentiment onto a charcoal cardstock sentiment strip to complete my card.


The shaped card was created exactly as the pencil on the A2 card, but I used the larger pennant from the Slimline Pennant Die to create it. Once the pencil was created, I attached it to a white card base, measuring 2 3/4 X 6 1/2" when folded. I then trimmed the sides along the pencil to create the pointed shape. Next, I stamped the sentiment in black ink from Teacher Appreciation onto some patterned paper and die cut it with the Stitched Circle Dies. I then layered it onto a charcoal Scalloped Circle Mat, added a small apple from Harvest Mice , and adhered to my card with foam tape to complete it!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my projects today! See you next time!

Christmas in July with Hello Bluebird

Hi friends!  I absolutely LOVE creating for Christmas, so I'm jumping on the Christmas in July bandwagon with a card featuring the North Pole Littles stamp set

To begin, I cut an A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock and ink blended it with Cracked Pistachio and Pine Needles Distress Oxide inks, then added some splatters of thinned white acrylic paint to create a snowy effect. Next, I die cut a white frame using the Gallery Frame #2 Die, adding a snowy hill cut using the Hill and Dale Die before attaching to my inked background. I then cut some red striped patterned paper using the Gallery Frame #6 Die to create a fun frame for my card.

I stamped the images from North Pole Littles, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the North Pole Littles Dies.

Copic Colors Used:

Reindeer: E29, E25, E23, E31, E30
Red: E59, E27, E24, E14
Green: G29, G07, G02, G00, G000


Next, I added the colored images to my card, using foam tape for dimension. The "merry" sentiment was cut from red and white cardstock using the Christmas Words #1 Die. Lastly, I white heat embossed Christmas from the Merry Wishes Stamp onto a strip of black cardstock to finish up my card!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope my Christmas in July card inspired you to get a jump start on your holiday cards! Have a wonderful day.
