Kind Of Sickly!

Hello!
There is nothing worse than being under the weather and feeling like crap! But if I got this card in the mail, it sure would cheer me up! This is the adorable "Seymore's Sick Day" and "Better Quickly" sentiment from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.
Today I am using papers from an older collection from Echo Park Called "For The Record 2". I stamped my image onto some Copic friendly paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next, I coloured in my image to match the designer papers and cut it out using my Brother Cut N Scan. It's a simple design using different rectangle sizes layered with matching cardstock. Seymore is popped up with foam squares. A scattering of enamel dots finish off my card design.
Copics Used:
G20, G21, G24, G46
W1, W3, W5
B93, B95, B97

Hogs-N-Kisses!

Howdy!
Todays mini slimline card combines 2 stamps from High Hope Rubber Stamps. I've used the "Soo-eet Petunia and Audrey" and the "Farm Background". I thought that they went nicely together! Oh my gosh, Petunia's smile....too cute!
To start, I stamped my images onto some Copic friendly paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next I coloured in my images and cut them out using my Brother Cut N Scan. I decided to colour the field behind the barn as if there is wheat growing in it. I used a MFT "Slimline Cloud Edges" stencil to add some clouds in the background. The "Hogs-N-Kisses" sentiment goes well with the theme of my card. Some MFT Stitched Hills and a little fence just brings it all together. My Main image and the bottom hill are popped up with foam squares for some added dimension to my card.
Copics Used:
E00, E11, E21/ E41, E43, E44, E47

Hang In There!

Hello!
Ok..... when I saw this image I thought it was perfect for my post this week as I'd like to think that is me, relaxing in the hammock. We are heading off on a nice trip for some warm and sunny weather, and the first hammock I see, I'm jumping in! Not to mention having one of those cocktails pictured in the Designer paper LOL. This is the adorable "Sweet Dreams" image from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I paired it with the sentiment stamp "Hang In There".
To start, I stamped my image onto some Copic friendly paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next I coloured in my image and cut it out using a CDD Banner die. I am using papers from the Doodlebug Sweet Summer 6x6 collection. A touch of glitter pen, a bow and enamel dots finish off my card.
Copics Used:
YG01, YG03, YG17, G28

Thanks!

Happy Tuesday!
I needed some "Thank You" cards to send out for the lovely gifts I received at Christmas. I thought this cutie called "Buzzin' By Bear" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps was the perfect image to use. It's a cheery card and with the dull weather we've had, it's sure to bring a smile! I've paired it with 2 different sentiment stamps called "Thanks" and "Flutter'in By".
To start, I stamped my image onto some Copic friendly paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next I coloured in my image and cut it out using my Brother Cut N Scan. I took a piece of water-colour paper and using a MFT "Slimline Cloud Edges" and "Drifts and Hills" stencil made my background. I used Distress Oxide ink in Robin's Egg and Cracked Pistachio. Then I decided to add a little fence and some flowers from dies I had in my stash. I popped up the Bear image with foam squares for added dimension. The "Fluttering' By" sentiment actually says "Fluttering' By To Say Hi". I masked off the Hi so I could add the Thanks sentiment and cut them both out using a Banner Tag die.
Copics used:
E31, E33, E35, E37
R02, R22
Y13, Y17, Y18
C6, C7, C9
YG03, YG17
BG0000, BG000, BG01

Time To Tidy Up!

Happy Thursday!
Yup..... this is me this week LOL. We spent Christmas up at our Cottage and have been away for 2 weeks. Now I'm back home and it's time to take down all the Christmas decorations and give the house a good tidy up! I love Christmas but dread putting my house back to normal, anybody with me? Meet the adorable "Tidy Up Tillie" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps
I stamped Tillie onto some Copic friendly paper and stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured Tillie in to match papers from the MFT "Tranquil Textures" 6x6 collection. Using dies from CDD Fancy Frames and Kat's Scrappiness Stitched Scallop Nesting Tags, I cut out the designer paper. I popped my image up with foam squares for some dimension. A cute little bow and enamel dots finish off my card.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair & Broom: Y23, Y26, y28

BRR......

Hello!
Look at this adorable "Skating Along" Penguin from High Hopes Rubber Stamps! He looks like he doesn't have a care in the world! He's just out enjoying the winter day skating on the pond. He's got quite the form too LOL!
I decided to pair Mr Penguin with the "Frozen Skating Pond" to have a little scene for him to skate along! I stamped the images onto Copic friendly paper and then set about colouring them in. I cut the pond out using a MFT Stitched Square die, and cut the Penguin out using my Brother Cut N Scan. Next I popped him up using foam squares over part of the pond. I thought the HH "Brr" sentiment was perfect as I'm sure it's cold where he is! Lots of sparkle to my card today..... Twinkle Stickles on the trees and glitter pen on the ice surfaces. A few enamel dots finish off my card.
Copics Used:
C00, C1, C2, C6, C8, C9
R34, R39, B95, B97, B99
YG17, G28, YR24
B0000, B000, B0

This is my last post before the Holidays and I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year!

Winter Wonderland!

Happy Tuesday!
I'm carrying on the "Winter Theme" for December over on the High Hopes Blog with this cutie called "Package Packin' Penguin". He's so cute and easy to colour, so he makes a fast card when you need one!
After stamping my image, I coloured this cutie in with my Copic Markers. I have a Silhouette Cameo and hardly ever use it.... I know, what a shame, LOL! So I challenged myself to use one of my many files. This card base is called "Christmas Tree Shadow Box (svg.) Instead of making it into the actual card base, I just used the front cutouts and popped each layer up with foam squares to get that shadow box look. Next using some of my Christmas scraps, added the designer papers onto a 5"x6.5" pre-made card base. I stamped the "Winter Wonderland" HH sentiment directly onto the front and popped the Penguin up as well.
Copics Used:
Penguin: N1, N0, N6, N7, N9/ YR23, YR27
Hat & Scarf: R56, R50, E04
Present: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99

Cold Hands!

Hello!
December is all about Winter themed cards over on the High Hopes Blog! Meet the adorable "Lasso Some Snow" Snowman. He's going to lasso some fun for him and his little bird friends!
I started my card by stamping the image onto Copic friendly paper with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I decided to use papers from the Echo Park "Winter" 6x6 collection and coloured the image to match. Using my Brother Cut N Scan, I cut the image out and using foam squares popped him up for some added dimension. I inked all the edges of my papers with Distress Oxide ink in "Faded Jeans". Some Spectrum Noir Glitter pen on the snow spots adds a fun sparkle to my card! The sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "Fancy Cold Hands". A bit of twine and bow finishes everything off.
Copics Used:
B0000, B000, B00, B93, B95, B97, B99
R00, R24, R27, R29

Santa's Coming!

Ho Ho Ho!
It's hard to believe that Christmas is less than a month away! It always seems to creep up on us! I have to say this is the first year I had my shopping done and presents wrapped by the middle of November! Look at me go LOL. Todays card features the adorable "Christmas Santa" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps!
I started my card by stamping the image onto Copic friendly paper and then stamped the "Coming To Town" sentiment underneath Santa. Next, I coloured my image in using my Copic markers to match papers from the Vicki Boutin "Evergreen and Holly" 6x8 collection. Using a MFT Stitched Octagon die, I cut the image out and piece to put behind it. Of course Santa has to have some sparkle so I added Crystal Stickles to the fur parts on his outfit. Some twine and enamel dots finish off my card.
Copics Used:
Skin & Beard: E11, E21, R20/ C0, C1, C2, C3
Santa's outfit: R22, R24, R27, R29/ C5, C8, C9
Rudolph: E31, E33, E35, E37/ W2, W5
Greens: YG03, YG17

Snow Couple!

Hello!
Well we just had a blast of winter so these adorable Snowmen are perfect for my post today! We sure got spoiled the beginning of November with warm Fall weather so to all of sudden get some cold weather was a shock lol! I remember when the kiddies were little, the first snowfall they'd rush out to make snowmen even if there was hardly any snow. I love anything "snow people" related and this cutie called "Snow Couple Block" from High Hopes Stamps just makes me feel happy!
I started my card design by stamping the image onto alcohol friendly paper and coloured the image in with  my Copic Sketch markers. I love the colours and snowflake print from the Sunny Studios "All Is Bright" 6x6 collection. My design is simple, with just layers of Designer Paper and the image out out with a MFT Zig Zag die. I kept the card flat, no foam tape this time for easy mailing. A few enamel dots and some Crystal Stickles finish off my card today.
I decorated the inside of my card using some of the scraps from the paper collection and a MFT Border die. The HH Sentiment called "Snowfolk" goes nicely with the Snow Couple Block.
Copics Used:
Snowmen: N0, N1, N5/ YR04, YR09
Hat & Buttons: N5, N6, N8
Boy's Scarf & Mitts: E23, E25, E29/ BG 49, BG53, BG57
Girl's Scarf & Mitts: RV17, RV52, RV55/ G28, YG17, YG03
Birds: R22, R24, R27, YR04
