Hi Ai Fans!
Hampton Arts and Art Impressions have teamed up again to bring you some stamp sets that are for sale at Michaels! There are 2 new Pop Card sets and 2 Clear Girlfriends stamp sets. I got to play with the Girlfriend set called "Merriest"! These gals just make me chuckle! I wonder what carol they are singing and I can just imagine that they likely are a bit off key!!
This paper is from one of my favourite collections this winter, the Sizzix Sweet Christmas designer paper! I have added Gold Wink of Stella and Crystal Stickles to each of the gals for a fun element!
Both of the sentiment I used on this card also are included in the set! I love decorating the inside of my cards as well!

Snowy's Cup!

Hi High Hope Fans!
It's Tuesday so that means you can find me over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs sharing the cards I made. Today's cards feature the adorable "Snowy's Cup" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps!

I love this stamp because you can stamp a sentiment on the middle of the cup! I used the "Dot warm Winter Wishes" sentiment to do just that!

On the inside I used the "Dot Snowman Melts" sentiment!
My paper is from the Doodlebug Polar Pals 6x6 collection, an oldie but still one of my favourite paper collections! I used my Brother Cut N Scan to cut around my image and then popped it up with foam squares for added dimension. I struggled with this layout, I wanted to add more of something but couldn't decide what! Then my mom appeared in my ear saying "less is more" lol so I decided to just leave it like it is! Sometimes Mom is right LOL!
It's hard to see but there is Glossy accents on the nose and buttons, and Spectrum Noir Glitter pen on the purple areas and the red stripes of the candy cane.

Copics Used:
C1, C6, C8, YR04, R24, R27, R29
V12, V15, V17, B23, B26, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG18

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Birthday!

Just popping in again today to share with you a card I made for my Mom. Yesterday was her Birthday  and we were away in Sudbury celebrating my Granddaughter's first birthday. My Mom and JD share the same date, pretty special for the Great Grandma don't you think?!
I'm using the Stamping Bella "Tiny Townie Bree Loves Buttercream". My paper is from the Tailored Expressions "hello Happiness" 6x6 collection. A few die cuts, enamel dots and Spectrum Noir Glitter pen on Bree's skirt finish everything off!
On the inside I used the Stampendous "Special Day" cling stamp.
Of course my 3 dogs had to give "Grandma" a present and this is the card I made for them to give Grandma. I used the High Hopes Stamps "Prancing Puppy" and "Puppy Pals" stamps to create my card. I used a washcloth and some Copic Blender solution to make texture on their bodies.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E43, E44, E47
Top and Tights: BG72, BG75, BG78

Amber Rose!

Good Morning!
I wanted to stop by today to share the adorable "Amber Rose" digital stamp from Digi Doodle Studios! Isn't she just the sweetest thing sitting there surrounded by delicious apples!!
I've been trying my hand at using more Digital Papers!  These papers are from the DDS "Apple Crazy" 8x8 Digital papers! 

After I had printed "Amber Rose" I coloured her pants and hat with Copic Markers and then took a bit of Blender Solution and a washcloth to add some texture. I was hoping it would look like denim and I think it turned out perfectly! For some reason, this time my camera really picked up the Stickles I added to the apples LOL! A few enamel dots and a bit of ribbon finish off my card.
The sentiment on both the front and inside of my card are from the DDS "Autumn Days" Sentiment and Tags set.
Copics used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E71, E74, E77, E79
Denim: B24, B26, B28, 0

Tall Country Snowman!

Hello and Welcome!
Thanks for stopping by today! I love snowmen and this "Tall Country Snowman" from High Hopes Stamps is one of my favourites! I love the country feel to him and the larger size makes a nice tall card as seen below!
I stamped my image onto Copic XPress-it paper and coloured it in with my Copic Sketch Markers. Then using a FishTail Flag die I cut him out! I decided to use papers from the Echo Park I Love Winter 6x6 collection! It's hard to see in the picture but there is Spectrum Noir Glitter pen added to the checkered parts and stars on the image.  I used the HH "Brr" sentiment on the front.
Here's the inside of my card using the HH " Work of Art" sentiment.

When I coloured this adorable "Heidi" digital stamp from Digi Doodle Studios I was sitting in a log cabin enjoying the Fall weather and beautiful leaves in West Virginia! Hopefully not all of you are freezing yet and can enjoy the happiness and fun "Heidi" is having playing in the leaves!
For my card today I am u sing DDS Digital papers from the "Sweater Weather" collection! The colours are perfect for Fall with their rich deep brown and orange tones! I created the little banner in the corner using the DDS "Autumn Days" Sentiment and Tags digital stamp set.
I'm in love with this saying which is also from the "Autumn Days" Sentiment and Tag Digital set.
