Happy Friday Ai Fans!
Let me introduce you to "Scratch"! Scratch is the "Man" around the chicken coop in the Ai Bird Brains line of stamps! He's one super cool dude with those glasses and I'm sure the chickens all swoon over him LOL!
I stamped and cut Scratch out with my Silhouette machine and then coloured him with my Copic Markers. I am using paper from the MFT Fresh Gingham paper collection. I thought the Ai "Chicken Wire" background stamp was perfect to layer behind Scratch.
On the inside, I used a bit more of the designer paper to layer behind the "It's Been Ages" sentiment.
Copics Used:
R24, R27, R29, E07, E08, E09
YR16, YR18, YR21, YR24, YR27

If you haven't checked out the Bird Brains stamp line you have to head over to the online Ai Store and see all the cute and funny chicken themed stamps! You'll chuckle for sure!

Happy Stamping!

Dots & Stripes!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the 2nd week of the Ai Challenge called "Dots and Stripes" and the launch of the new Pop Cards!
These pop cards are the coolest idea ever!
Here's the front of my card! I had to explain to Hubby what "HB2U" meant.....Happy Birthday to you in short form LOL.  I am following along with the "Dot" part of the Challenge with this polka dot paper. I used my Silhouette Electronic cutting machine to cut out the letters and number for this card.
The whole idea behind the pop card is that your card folds flat but when you open it up the image inside "pops" up. I'm using the "Gator Pop Card set.". They are very easy to assemble but you do need to also have the Pop Card template die. The template is the part that you add all the layers of your card to. The Set comes with your images and dies to cut out everything you need to assemble your card.
Here you can see the layers that make up your 3D image.
I made a second version of this image. Instead of using the Gator as a Pop card I used the set to make a card with his head on an action wobble! There're likely tons of way to use these stamp sets that I haven't even thought of yet! My papers all are from Echo Park's Dino Friends 6x6 collection and go along with this Challenge theme perfectly!
Here you can see his head on an action wobble and is so cute when it shakes!

Copics Used:
YG)1, YG03, YG06, YG6, YG63, YG67, R01, R02, R24, YR12, Y13, B06

Happy Stamping!

Birthday Wishes!

Howdy HH Fans!
Today I am sharing a Birthday card I made using the super sweet "LeiLani" from the Darling Divas May Release over at High Hopes Stamps! This release is full of super adorable girl images and every time I see one I fall in love with them all over again!
I decided to use papers from the Kaisercraft Indigo Skies collection!  I love all the blues in these papers, they are just gorgeous! The sentiment is actually one of the die cuts that comes with the paper pad. I added some Stickles to her dress and clear droplets on the tag. The flowers have Nuvo drops in their middles in Glossy White.

I am also following along with this months Sketch Challenge!

Here's the inside using the High Hopes sentiment called "Have A Beautiful Day"!
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20, R24 (Lips)
