Welcome Little One!

Hello!!
It seems like there a lot of babies being born lately...... must be Covid (lol). Everyone has had a lot of spare time on their hands lol! I'm re-building my stash of baby cards, seems I can't have enough. This cute little dragon is from High Hopes Stamps and is called "Baby Dragon". He goes nicely with the HH sentiment "Sm. Welcome Little One".
To start my card I stamped my image onto Copic friendly paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I set about colouring him with my Copic Sketch markers to match the papers from Doodlebug's "Special Delivery" 6x6 collection. I cut out my image with a MFT Stitched Oval die and popped him up over the square and banner die cuts with foam tape. I love using foam tape as it just adds more interest to your card with the dimension it gives. I cut the sentiment in half so that I could have words on the left and bottom corners. A few enamel dots finish off my card.
Copics used:
B21, B23, B24
Y32, Y35
YG17, YG23, YG25
W1, W3

Lots of Hugs!

Happy Tuesday!
I love this little cutie called "Gonna Getcha" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps! He just warms my heart and makes me smile! I'm re-stocking my "friend" cards and I know just the person I'm going to send this too! I haven't seen them all summer so I'm sending lots of hugs to them! Hopefully this cutie will brighten their day and let them know I am missing them!
Today I am using papers from the Honey Bee "Bee Bliss" 6x6 collection. After stamping my image onto Copic friendly paper, I coloured him in to match the designer papers. Next using a Gina Marie Pleated Circle die, I cut him out. I added a Pretty Pink Posh Border die cut to both sides of a flowered strip of paper for some fun! I decided to use the HH sentiment called "Hugs & Hugs" to send that long distance hug I was talking about. Both the sentiment and the main image are popped up with foam tape for some added dimension. A bit of ribbon and a bow finish off my design.
Copics Used:
Mouse: N0, N1, N2, N3, R20

Happy Halloween!

Happy Tuesday!
Tuesday means it's my day to post over at on the HH Blog! Carrying on with the Fall/Halloween theme I decided to use "Pumpkin Treat" from High Hopes Stamps. He was quick and easy to colour and makes an adorable card quickly!

I chose papers from the Bella Blvd. "Spooktacular" 6x8 collection. I cut the image out using a Memory Box Stitched Scallop Circle die and popped it up using foam tape. I cut the "Happy Halloween Script" sentiment out using a die from the Studio Katia Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frames set. A scattering of enamel dots and Stickles on the yellow parts finish off my card.

Nuts About You!

Hi!
I'm popping in today to share a fun Fall themed card. We're celebrating Fall and Halloween over at High Hopes Stamps and "Little Nutty Buddy" fits the bill for sure! I'm at my cottage and this little guy reminds me of the squirrels and chipmunks I am feeding here. They love their peanuts and cram as many as they can in their mouths before running off to hide them. 
I coloured in Little Nutty Buddy with my Copic Sketch markers and then using my Brother Cut N Scan cut him out. My papers today are from the Echo Park My Favourite Fall 6x6 collection. I decided to ink the edges of my papers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, it helps give the card some added dimension. I thought the High Hopes sentiment called "Nuts About You" was perfect for this image! My image is popped up on a MFT Zig Zag circle die cut with foam tape. Some burlap ribbon, bow, wooden leaf charm and enamel dots finish off my card.
Copics Used:
Squirrel: E30, E31, E33, E34, E35, E37, E49
Acorn: E23, E25, E29, E79, N9

I cut out around my image leaving a white border. Lots of basic shape layers on my card today, with all the edges inked in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Just Chillin'!

Hello!
Penguins are my #1 favourite stamp image. My Grandmother loved Penguins, I loved her, and now they remind of her every time I see one! So that makes them my favourite now too! This is a simple, fun card but it packs a ton of cuteness! Meet "Just Chillin" from High Hopes Stamps! Ohhhhh I bet his butt is cold LOL. 
Today I am using papers from the Sunny Studios "Holiday Cheer" 6x6 collection. They are fun and bright and suit this cutie perfectly! After stamping my image onto Copic friendly paper, I coloured him to match my papers using my Copic Sketch markers. Using a Gina Marie "Wonky Stitched" die I cut out the image and papers that are behind him. A simple card layout makes this a quick and easy card! I love the HH sentiment called "Ice Day"! I added some icicle borders, glitter pen to the ice block and sentiment to finish things off.

Hot Cocoa!

Howdy!
Today I'm sharing another card with you for the "Christmas in July" month long theme going on over at High Hopes Rubber Stamps! "Snowy's Cup" is one of favourite HH stamps and I always love colouring him! Sometimes I imagine him as a marshmallow & candy decoration you put in your hot cocoa and he melts into it making a delicious rich drink. Love the "Dot Warm Heart" sentiment too! It's true they both really do warm my heart!
One of my favourite non-traditional Christmas colours to use is blue. The Echo Park "Winter" 6x6 collection was perfect for my card, especially with that mug designer paper. After I stamped Snowy onto some Copic friendly paper, I coloured him in using my Copic Sketch markers. Next using my Brother Cut N Scan, I cut around him leaving a small white edge. All my papers today have been inked on the edges using Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. I always love the little bit of dimension it adds to your card. I cut the sentiment out using s MFT Stitched Banner die. A bit of twine, a bow and holly gem fish off my card today.
Copics Used:
B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
