DDS Christmas In July!

Hi Digi Doodle Fans!
The monthly Challenge over on the Digi Doodle Challenge Blog this month is "Christmas In July"! I decided to make this cute Gift Tag using the digital stamp called "Nutcracker Noelle".
I printed my digital image and then coloured it with my Copic Sketch Markers. I used my Brother Cut N Scan to fussy cut out the image. Then using a Silhouette SVG file "Nested Artisan Tags" I made my paper layers. Looking at this now I see I glued the die cut upside down LOL (ssshhhh don't tell anyone). I added a bit of Crystal Stickles for some fun glitter.
Here you can see the added dimension to this tag. I popped my image up with foam tape. I also cut out the die 4x and glued it all together so that it has dimension as well. The bow is also triple cut and slightly offset for more dimension.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E29
Outfit: R39, R56, R89 / C1, C2, C3, C5, C7
Penguin: C6, C8, C9 /  R39, R56, R89 / YR12, YR16
Present: C1 / G94, G99

Since we are moving when I made this card, I had to take the pictures outside as all my lights are packed LOL! Makes a bit of a different background!

Happy Stamping!

Christmas Joy!

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
It's Christmas in July over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs and I thought this adorable Snowman called "Christmas Joy Snowy"was perfect for this theme!
It's been fun to pull out my Christmas papers and these papers are from the Echo Park I Love Christmas 6x6 collection. I added the "Think Snow" sentiment which is perfect to remember on these hot summer days! I love the Stampendous Spoonful of Snow added under Snowy. You sprinkle it on and heat from underneath to melt it. It's just so pretty in person!
Here's the decorated inside with the HH sentiment called "Work of Art".

It's a Hoedown!

Howdy Ai Fans!
I'm just popping in today to share with you this adorable couple from Art Impressions called "Square Dancers". Oh My Gosh...... these two just make me giggle!! They are all ready to strut their stuff at the Hoedown!
I decided to use papers from the Doodlebug "Down on the Farm" 6x6 collection, I thought they went perfectly with these "Square Dancers".
On this card I coloured it using the lines exactly as they stamp.
But on this card I used the coloured image on the packaging and tried to copy the plaid print on her dress. It was fun trying to add the lines! It sure makes the image look totally different!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the second week of the "Masculine Cards" Challenge over on the Art Impressions Blog. It's always great to have a few "man cards" on hand and Art Impressions has many great guys to choose from!
Today I am using the "Cowboy Wiggle Wobble" stamp set. He is just adorable when he dances on the action wobble! I chose papers from the Doodlebug Down On The Farm 6x6 collection.
The sets comes with the image, dies, 2 sentiments, brads and an action wobble. Everything you need to make an interactive fun card. You can buy more wobbles and mini brads too, so you can keep using this set.
See how cute is this guy!!

Moo-rry Christmas!

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
It's Christmas in July over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs! I decided to use "Charlie Christmas Tag" to create my card with today! I just love the way Charlie is peeking over the string of lights!
I used some paper from my stash and created a black card base to adhere my layers to. I coloured Charlie with my Copic markers and popped the image up with foam tape for more dimension. I added the HH Sentiment called "Moo-rry Christmas" to the middle of the tag using my MISTI.  I love adding Liquid Appliqué to the fur trim on his hat. When it dries and you use your heat gun it pops up for a fun element. A piece of ribbon, bow and some Spectrum Moir Glitter pen to the lights finished off my design.
Copics Used:
N1, N5, N6, N8
R00, R01, R02, R24, R27, R29
W0, W1, W3

Hope you are all staying cool in this heat wave we've been having!

Lottie & Tillie!

Today is New Release day over at Digi Doodle Studios!!! I'm so excited for these new digital stamps from the "Believe In The Magic" Release! Christmas is my favourite Holiday so I always love making cards with Xmas/Winter themed images. Let me introduce you to "Lottie & Tilly"!
Penguins always hold a special spot in my heart as my Grandma loved them. Every time I see one it reminds me of her and I feel her love surrounding me! I love the "Black & White Christmas" Digital Paper from DDS. I love Black and Red as a colour combo as it always just pops off the page! I coloured my Penguins with my Copic markers and then fussy cut them out. I popped them up on my winter scene with some foam tape for added dimension. Some crystal Stickles add that bit of bling I love!
Both of the sentiments on may card are also from DDS and are from the "Snow Wishes" Digital sentiment set.

Christmas In July!

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
The Design Teams over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs are going to share "Christmas in July" inspiration to you all month! Since Christmas is my favourite Holiday, this is wonderful not to mention I'll get a few Christmas Cards done up ahead!
I've been seeing a ton of Cardinals lately so I wanted to use the HH "Singing Crazy Birds"stamp and colour the birds red. I stamped the image on a card Base of 4.25 x 5.5" made from Copic Paper. I coloured the image using my Copic markers and then used an edge die to cut the bottom off. Since my colouring bled through to the back of the paper I added designer paper on the inside and to show at the bottom of the decorative edge. I added some Liquid Appliqué to the snow areas, let it dry and then used my heat gun on it to make the Liquid Appliqué bubble up. Some Crystal Stickles and enamel dots finish off my card!
I used a bit more of the designer paper on the inside and the High Hopes sentiment called "Holiday All Year".
Copics Used:
R22, R24, R27, R81, R83, R85
BG13, BG34
