Hannah's Heart!

Happy Tuesday HH & OCS Fans!
Today I am sharing with you a card I made using "Hannah's Heart" from High Hopes Stamps! Hannah is one of the first stamps I had from HH and I haven't used her in a long time. I forgot just how adorable she is and had to ink her up once again!
I decided to use papers from the MME "Happy Days" 6x6 collection. I just love the colour combinations in this pack! I made this card for any "love" occasion. The sentiment "Just Because" is also from High Hopes.
After stamping Hannah, I coloured her with my Copic markers to match the designer paper. I added some Crystal Stickles to the tiny hearts on her dress, her flower in her hat and the butterfly. Some matching ribbon, bow and adhesive sequins finish off my design.
Using leftovers from the designer paper I decorated the inside of my card and added the HH "A Hundred Hearts" sentiment.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E25, E27, E29
Outfit: BG72, BG75, BG78, YG23, YG25
Hearts: YR00, YR01, YR02
Ground & Outline: W1, BG000, BG00

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!

You Are Loved!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
Valentine's Day is a two days away so I thought it was the perfect time to get this cutie out of hiding LOL! Meet "Ladybug Love" from High Hopes Stamps! She is just so stinking cute!
I created my own background using distress Oxide Inks in Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick on some Tim Holtz Distress Woodgrain paper. I added some ink splatters using Ebony Black Nuvo Drops, water and a paintbrush. I also used the Ebony Black Drops on her antenna. The "You Are Loved" sentiment on the front is also from High Hopes. A few die cut heart circles and enamel dots help to finish off my card.
On the inside I used the HH "Hugs & Hugs" Sentiment
Copics Used:

It's New Release Day!

Hi DDS Fans!
It's an exciting day over at Digi Doodle Studios..... It's Release Day!!! The fabulous Dina has done it again with her new "Love and Friendship" digital stamps. This sweet digital stamp is called "Cheers" and I love that the dog is included. Nothing better than a little love and cheers between Besties!!
I chose papers from the Penny Black "Summer time" 6x6 collection. I decided to give the new fad of "peek-a-boo wheels" a try on this card. It was a bit hard to find some small words to fit the speech bubbles. I pulled out my SSS "Thoughtful Messages" set and it worked perfectly. You can't tell in the photos but I added Spectrum Noir Glitter pen to all the hair bows, and wine. A nice matching bow and tiny metal flower finishes everything off.
As you turn the wheel a different sentiment pops into view.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20

Hogs & Kisses!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!!
Valentine's Day is around the corner so I thought it was the perfect time to create a card using the High Hopes "Betsy Loves Barney" Stamp! Pigs are some of the cutest images but 2 pigs in love..... just doesn't get sweeter than that!
I decided to mask off each pig and stamp them separately to create my little windows and then stamp the whole image. I imagine them flirting with each other and then coming together for that first kiss. My papers today are from the American Crafts "Loves Me Not" 6x6 collection. I made little circle frames from my Ai Double Stitched circle dies. It's hard to see but the "Xo" paper is popped up with foam tape so that the images are sunken down inside the frame. I took the HH "Hogs and Kisses" sentiment and cut it apart so that it could fit inside my Stitched Heart die cut. A double loop bow, heart gem and some Doodlebug Tiny Heart Sprinkles finish everything off!
My decorated inside along with the HH "Always and Forever" sentiment.
Copics Used:
R00, R01, R02, R20, R21, R22, R24
N5, N6, N7, W3, W5, YG23

Make sure to head on over to the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs as the Design Team will be using stamps for the theme "A Month of Love" to inspire you!

Happy Stamping!

Winter Owl!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
We finally have some winter weather and snow here in Ontario Canada. I'm feeling like this little "Winter Owl" from High Hopes Stamps is perfect for the Winter vibe here! 
I've had this paper from LDRS Called "Arctic Winter" that I've been dying to use and it was perfect for this adorable "Winter Owl" image. Winter Owl actually has some Christmas ornaments in the stamp. I masked them off before stamping my image for more of a winter theme rather than Christmas. I added Crystal Stickles to the pink areas on her hat and scarf and Liquid Appliqué to the snow on the branches. A bit pink bow finishes everything off.
I popped the inner octagon and image up with foam tape for a dimensional look.
More papers for a decorated inside and the High Hopes "Winter Wonderland" sentiment.
Copics Used:
W00, W0, W1, W2, W3

Hi Ya!

Hi DDS Fans!
It's Saturday and my turn to post some inspiration over on the Digi Doodle Studios Facebook Group! I just love this little cutie "Joanie"! Joanie has yellow belt which means that she is not a novice and has demonstrated basic knowledge in Karate. WTG Joanie!!
I printed the digital image "Joanie" and then coloured her in with my Copic Markers. I decided to use papers from the Digi Doodle Studios "Martial Arts" Digital Background papers. A nice big bow finished off my card design. The sentiment "Hi Ya!" is from the DDS "Martial Arts Encouraging Sentiments" digital pack.
I used more papers from the "Martial Arts Background" digital papers on the onside and another sentiment from the "Martial Arts Encouraging sentiments pack. I love decorating the inside of my cards to tie everything all together.

I popped "Bluebirdy" up on top of the Lacey circle with some foam tape for added dimension.
Each bird has some Stickles added to her fur trim and pom pom for added fun! A few Doodlebug sequins finish everything off. The "Dot Warm Winter Wishes" sentiment is also from High Hopes.

Lena's Teddy Bear!

Happy Saturday DDS Fans!
Today for my inspiration post over on the Digi Doodle Studios Facebook page I am using the digital stamp called "Lena's Teddy Bear". Teddy Bears always seem to bring comfort and it looks like it's Lena's favourite "stuffy"!
Today I chose papers from the Doodlebug "Hello" 6x6 collection and coloured my image to match the fun papers. I added some white gel pen polka dots for a bit of fun. The sentiment is also from the Digi Doodle Studios "Friendship" digital sentiment collection. A fun double bow and some blue glittered enamel dots finish everything off.
You can see how I added some dimension by using foam squares to pop the image up.
I used some of the leftover paper on the inside and another DDS sentiment from the "Friendship" collection.
