Come let Us Adore Him!

Hi Ai Fans!
Happy Friday!! Today I am sharing with you one of the new Mini Tryfold stamps sets from Art Impressions. This one is called "Nativity MTF". This set was so easy to use as all the instructions, stamps and dies for how to complete your project come with the set! Having said that..... I followed along with the instructions but made my tryfold base smaller as I wanted to mount it on the front of my card. 
The size of my little white section is about 3x3". I used a ribbon to keep it shut and added a Tomboy fastener on the back for easy opening. That way the bow stays nice when you want to close it back up.
The Photoplay "Luke 2" 6x6 collection was the perfect choice for my papers!
I added some paper on the back of the layers as when you colour it with your Copics some of the ink bleeds through and this hides that problem.
On the inside of the card I used the Ai Sentiment called "The Season"
Copics Used:
BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99
W00. W01, W3, W5, W7, W8
E00, E11, E30, E31
Y00, Y15, Y17, Y26, Y28
R20, R59, B000

Don't be afraid to try the Mini Tryfolds! They are super easy and so much fun! You will wow your card recipient!

Happy Stamping!

I got to play with the new "Singing Crazy Birds". Aren't they just the cutest trio!!! I'm also playing along with December's Sketch Challenge (see below)! My paper choice this time is from the Photo Play Holiday Cheer collection. I added some Liquid Appliqué to the snowy branches and then after it dried, I heated it with my Heat tool to make it pop up! A bit of Stickles to their hats and scarves and my image was finished! On the cute little tag I embossed the newly released sentiment "You Make Me Smile" with Black Embossing powder.
On the inside more of the same papers and another newly released sentiment called "Life's Path".

Christmas Critter Cheers!

Hi Tiddly Inks & Friends!
It's that time again over at Tiddly Inks.... yup you guessed it, it's a new Challenge! This week's them is "Frosty Feeling". So think luscious ice, snow, wintery images and colour themes! I decided to use the super cute digital images called "Inky Critters".
To follow the Frosty Feeling theme I added the beautiful Frostyville Border by MFT down the left side of the card. On the other side is the super cute Peek-A-Boo Trio Doors by YNS. The idea is that the recipient will have fun opening the little windows to reveal a surprise!
This time the paper is from the Echo Park "Story of Christmas" 6x6 collection. I also used the SSS Poinsettia Parade Die to add a small flower to the bottom corner!
Here's the inside using a sentiment from my stash.

Copics used:
C00, C1, C3, C5, C7
YR04, YR09, YR21, YR24
E23, E25, E27, E29
R24, R29, G94, G99

Happy Stamping!
