Joe Frost

Hello Happy Crafters!
I am sharing this cutie from Digi Doodle Studios called "Joe Frost". Joe is a digital stamp. What I love about Digital Stamps is that you can make them any size you want!
I made this card to enter into the Bazzill Basics Paper Facebook Challenge for December. I followed along with the Sketch below! If you like my card be sure to head on over to the BBP page and vote!
My papers on this card are from the American Crafts "Cozy and Bright" 6x6 collection. I love the very traditional colours and themes in this pack! I added some Christmas Red Stickles to Joe and a bit of "Spoonful of Snow" at his feet. A nice bow, wooden snowflake and some enamel dots finish everything off.

Waddles & Chubbs!

Hello Fellow Crafters!
Today I'm sharing with you an adorable card I made using the Digi Doodle Studios "Waddles & Chubbs" digital stamp.
I decided to try to make a Gatefold Card with a die cut centre today. It was easier than I thought and my heart dies did the trick smoothly!
Because there is the heart cut out my card didn't really want to stay shut so I fixed that little problem by tying it shut with ribbon.
Today's papers are from the Echo Park "Celebrate Winter" 6x6 collection. I thinks these colour combo's are one of my favourites for the Christmas Season!
Here you can see the full inside. I added some Crystal and Gunsmoke Stickles to the characters and some Stampendous "Spoonful of Snow" at their feet. The DDS digital sentiment is from the "Snow Wishes" collection.
Copics Used:
R22, R24, R27
B93, B95, B97
N5, N6, N7, N8
C0, C1, C3, C4

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!

Happy Holidays!

Hello DDS Fans!
Today I'm sharing with you a fun & bright card using the "Chipper Treats Winter Christmas Tag" digital stamp from Digi Doodle Studios! This little sweetie looks just as cute on a card or you could use him for a tag!
After sizing and printing my image on my printer, I coloured him in with my Copic Sketch markers. I die cut around him using the CDD Fancy Frames die and popped him up with foam tape on top of my patterned paper layers. I am using papers from the Doodlebug "Christmas Town" 6x6 collection! There are some Crystal Stickles on his hat and berries. I stamped the "Happy Holidays" from a YNS set I had that fit perfectly into the middle of the tag. A few die cut snowflakes with enamel dot centers finish off my card.
Copics Used:
BG01, BG02, BG05, BG07, BG72, BG75
R21, R22, R24, R27, R29

As always....
Happy Stamping!

Holiday Wishes!

Hello Ai Fans!
Today I'm using an older Art Impressions stamp set called "Holiday Wishes". I was looking through my stash of Ai stamps and when I saw this one, I knew I needed to use this set again!
I made 2 different versions using papers from the same Echo Park Merry & Bright 6x6 collection.
I added Stickles to the hats and the fur trim on Santa. Gold Wink of Stella is added to Santa's buckle and on Rudolph who has a Red Stickle nose. 
My Gold Wink of Stella pen left a drop on my image so to cover it up I added snowflakes using Liquid Appliqué. Whew my image was saved LOL. Once the liquid dries you heat it with your heat gun and the liquid puffs up.
Here's a close up of the snowflakes so you can see the dimension they add.
I decorated the inside of my card and used the sentiment that comes in the set.
Copics Used:
Santa: E000, E02, R20, C1, C2, C3, R35, R37, R39, N6, N8
Deer: E33, E35, E37, E39, W3, YG63, YG67
Bird: R21, R22, R24
Tree: Y35, Y38, YG63, YG67
Ground: W0, W1, W2, W3
Sky: B0000, B000, B00

Happy Stamping!

Winter Wonderland!

Santa is giving Rudolph a bit of a rest before his big night Christmas Eve! This is the adorable "Reindeer Games" from High Hopes Stamps!
I chose this plaid paper from an older Lawn Fawn 6x6 collection! There's just something about plaid that always gets me! I stamped and then coloured my image with my Copic Markers. I added the outline and sky with my markers as well. Then I added some snowflakes using Liquid Appliqué. I let it dry then heated it up and voilá they puff up! Glitter was added for the snow effect. I also added the HH "Winter Wonderland" on a tag die.
On the inside I used the "Sparkle & Cheer" sentiment from High Hopes.
