Penguin Crush!

Happy Tuesday!
Tuesday's mean I get to colour a High Hopes image and post about it! It makes Tuesday's my favourite day of the week LOL. Meet the adorable "Penguin Crush" red rubber-stamp. I like to imagine that this will be their first kiss. Looks to me that these two are heading from crush status to love!! 
I thought that the papers in the Echo Park "Celebrate Winter" 6x6 collection were a perfect choice for this pair. I stamped, coloured and cut out the image with my Brother Cut N Scan. I popped the HH sentiment "Candy Cane Wishes" and the image up on the card with foam squares. Foam squares help to give your card dimension.
Copics Used:
Penguins: N0, N1, N6, N7, N8, R01, YR04, YR09
Reds: R22, R24, R27, R29
Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99

Merry Christmas!

Howdy!
I don't know about you, but I never really thought of Cows being a Christmas "thing". But after seeing this cutie called "Charlie's Christmas" from High Hopes,  I wonder why we didn't think of this years ago!! He's just so cute and perfect for so many people, especially farmers! Charlie is perfect to colour to make a card using non-traditional Christmas colours!
I stamped Charlie onto some Copic friendly paper and then using mu Copic Sketch markers, coloured him in. Using my Brother Cut N Scan, I cut Charlie out and added him to my card with foam squares. I decided to use papers from the Photoplay "Kringle & Co." 6x6 collection. The HH sentiment called "Your Herd" matches perfectly for Charlie! A bit of ribbon, and Crystal Stickles on Charlie's hat finish off my card.
Copics Used:
N6, N7, N8
W3, W5, W7
C00, C0, Copic 0
R01, R02, R35, R37, R39

Winter Friends!

Hi Friends!
October brings another re-release over at High Hopes Rubber Stamps called "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" ". It's so fun to play with all these images again! This cutie patootie is called "Winter Friends ". I think snowmen are one of my favourite things to colour. They remind me of my Mom, who has a huge Snowman collection she gets out every Christmas!
I decided to go with non-traditional winter/Christmas colours for this card. The papers from the Doodlebug "Winter Wonderland" fit the bill. I stamped my image onto Copic friendly paper, coloured it in with my Copic markers and then cut it out using an oval die. I love the round sentiment called "Peace, Love, Joy" and I coloured the hearts to match. A bit of "Spoonful of Snow" from Stampendous adds the snow to ground my image. 
Copics Used:
Snowman: C00, C0, C1, C2, C4, C5/ R01, YR04, YR09
Outfit: RV06, RV09, RV55/ V15, V17, V09/ C7, C8, C9
Bird: R27, R29/ B21, B23, B24, B28

Merry Christmas!

Hello!
Anytime is a good time to make Christmas cards, especially when I send so many out to friends and family. With the "Christmas Cheer" re-release over at High Hopes, I just couldn't resist this cutie called "Christmas Boy"! He's adorable, easy to colour and makes the sweetest Christmas card! I love his little toes sticking out! I paired him with the HH "Fun Merry Christmas" sentiment.
This card was fun and quick to make. I stamped my image and coloured it with my Copic Markers. Using my Brother Cut N Scan, I cut around the image leaving a small white border. My papers today are from the Polkadoodles "Ho Ho Ho Christmas" 6x6 collection. A simple layout but still perfect for this cutie. I added some Crystal Stickles to his hat and used a bit of Nuvo Drops in Gloss White to mimic the dots on the present paper.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E13, R20, E27 (hair)
Reds: R35, R46, R59
Blues: B91, B93, B95
Greens: YG23, YG25, YG17

Winter Wonderland!

Hi!
It's Tuesday again and it's my turn to post over on the High Hopes Blog! As I sit here writing this post, I realize that this stamp called "Winter Ride" reminds me of a good friend! I should have coloured the horse brown and then it would have been perfect for her! 
After stamping my image onto Copic friendly paper, I coloured the image in to match papers from the Simple Stories "Jingle All the Way" collection. Then using a Gina Marie Double Roped Circle die, I cut out the image with my Big Shot. I added some Stampendous Spoonful of Snow below the image to make it look like they are out on a winter ride! I decided to use the HH sentiment called "Winter Wonderland" on my card today. The image is popped up with foam squares for added dimension. Some ribbon, a bow, poinsettia button and snowflake die finish off my card.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair & Saddle: E23, E25, E27
Horse: T3, T4, T6, T8, T9, R01, R02

No Peeking!

Howdy Folks!
I'm popping in today to share another Christmas card using "Teddy's Gift" from the "Christmas Cheer" re-release over at High Hopes Stamps! This little guy is just too cute for words! It looks to me like he's trying to shake the present to get a hint of what's inside LOL! I thought the sentiment called "Peeking, Poking, Shaking" was perfect to use with this image!
I decided to use papers today from the Echo Park "Here Comes Santa" 6x6 collection. After stamping my image and colouring it with my Copics, I decided to use the SSS Holiday Frame die to cut him out with. It makes it look like a polaroid picture don't you think?! I struggled trying to colour his fur. I tried various different techniques and finally settled on the Copic 0 and a terry cloth technique to achieve a fur texture. A bit of Crystal stickles on the pom pom finishes off my design.
Copics Used:
Bear: E41, E43, E44, E47, E49 to Copic 0
Outfit: R35, R46, R59/ C1, C3, C5
Present: G46, G28, G29/ R35, R46, R59
Outline & Ground: B00, B000, B0000, W1, W3

Reindeer Sweetness!

Happy Tuesday!
Welcome to the first day of our "Christmas Cheer" Release over at High Hopes Rubber Stamps! I hope you enjoyed the week of sneak peaks from our Design Team.  There are so many adorable stamps for you to play with! Today I'm sharing "Reindeer Sweetmess" and the sentiment called "Oh Deer". These two make the cutest friends don't you think?!
To start, I stamped my image onto some Copic friendly paper and coloured "Reindeer Sweetness" in with  my Copic Markers. Then using my Brother Cut N Scan, I cut around the image leaving a small white border. I chose papers from the Echo Park "Merry and Bright" 6x6 collection. I decided to edge all my papers using some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo for a bit of dimension. I popped the image up with foam squares over my die cut. A bit of pink ric rak ribbon, stickles on her hat and scarf and a snowflake gem, finish off my card design today.
Copics Used;
Skin: E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair & Gift: Y21, Y23, Y26

Happy Halloween!

Howdy Friends!
I can't believe it's the end of August already. Boy the months sure fly by! For my card today I am using the adorable "By The Moonlight" and the "Block Happy Halloween" sentiment from High Hopes Stamps.
I started my card design by first stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then taking my Copic Sketch markers, I coloured the image in. I decided to cut the image out using my Brother Cut N Scan. I chose to use papers from the Bella Blvd "Spooktacular" 6x8 collection. Those pumpkin faces make me giggle! For the sentiment I coloured it in and then cut around it using my Brother Cut N Scan. By mistake it cut around the words separately instead of one cut. I just went with it LOL and placed them separately. 
Copics Used:
Cat: T6, T8, T9, R22
Mouse: C1, C3, R02
Moon: YR04, Y35, Y38
Fence: E43, E44, E47

Hello!
Popping in today to share another Halloween card! We're celebrating Fall/Halloween over at High Hopes Rubber Stamps, this month. I love this cutie called "Chester & Friends", his hat just makes me smile. And the cat with the racoon mask....too cute!
I love the fun, colourful and bright papers from the Doodlebug Ghost Town 6x6 collection.

A few black enamel dots finish off my card.
