Always Dance!

Hi Digi Doodle Fans!
It's my turn to post today over on the Digi Doodle Facebook page. I decided to use the adorable "Sylvie Ballerina" to showcase some of Dina's adorable digital stamps! This gal is just too sweet, don't you think?!!
I made my card background using my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file. I love the layered stacking hearts! I added a piece of polka dot paper behind the hearts for some added interest. Of course a Ballerina has to have some sparkle so I added Crystal Stickles on her skirt ruffles and flower centre. It's hard to see in the photo but I also added some Clear Glitter pen to her skirt and shoe ribbons.
The sentiment is also from Digi Doodle Studios and you can find it in the "Pixie Wishes" sentiment collection.

Old Goat Set!

Hi Ai Fans!
I couldn't decide on which image to use from the Art Impressions "Old Goat" set, so I made cards with all 3 images LOL! These goats are just too cute and fun to colour!
These goats just remind me of my FaceBook friend Michelle's goats! She writes a weekly Blog about her "Animal Family" and I always look forward to reading about them on Saturday mornings! You can find her Blog here. I am using papers from the Echo Park Happy Birthday Boy and Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 collections.
I think this is my favourite of the 3..... I tried to make it look like the goat was jumping through the air. The sentiment isn't from the set, I made it on my computer.
Love the expressions on their faces, especially the black and white one! It's like he's saying "What... You're how old??? Just too cute!
The "Old Goat Set" comes with 3 images and 7 sentiments! Just imagine all the different combinations you can get out of one set of stamps! Great value for sure.

Good Times!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
This month it's all about Fall/Halloween for the Design Teams over at High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper. I just thought the "We're All Ears" and "Cawnie and Cawrls Lunch" were so cute that I had to ink them up!
Originally I wanted to have the corn cob as the card base but I didn't size it right with my Silhouette machine and cut a smaller version. So what's a girl to do?...... Mount it on the card front and add patterned paper LOL. I actually think it turned out better than the vision in my head! I used up some scraps from my patterned paper stash, fussy cut the images and mounted them on foam tape for some dimension. I also inked the edges of the corn cob with Vintage Photo to help it stand out as well.
Since these cute blackbirds are all eating, I thought the sentiment "Good Times" was perfect for these friends sharing their lunch LOL.

Road Trip!

Hello Ai Fans!
Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the Art Impressions "Shoppers" set. The "Shoppers set comes with the Front and Back image as well as a sentiment. You can also just purchase the "Shoppers Front" or the "Shoppers Back" images on their own.
I decided to make a half front card base so that I could also add the back image. I decided to use the "Road Trip" sentiment from the "Road Trip" set as the license plate for fun. I am using papers from the Doodlebug "Spring Things" 6x6 collection to create my little country scene. The gals are on their way home from shopping, taking the scenic route LOL.
Here you can see how the back image is applied. I also inked the edges of my papers to make them stand out a bit more.
I sure hope this Gal doesn't loose any of the precious packages as they travel home!
I made a second card just using the "Shoppers Front" image to show how versatile this set can be.
I added glossy accents to the windshield, and some glitter pen to the lights and bumper for added fun!

Ai Cards & Envelope Challenge!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the 2nd week of the "Cards & Envelopes" Challenge over on the Art Impressions Blog! We are also celebrating that Hobby Lobby is now carrying the Ai "Reel Great Guys" and "Spring Chickens" sets.
I decided to use the "Spring Chickens" set to make my card and matching envelope set.
I started off by taking some Distress Oxide Inks and making a piece of blended cardstock. Taking a piece of white cardstock, I die cut out the flowered heart. Then I just attached it over the blended layer and added a few enamel dots. A super quick and easy CAS design! 
I used a second sentiment from the "Spring Chickens" set on the inside of my card.
I also added the same image onto the front of my card and matching washi tape as on the inside of my card to tie it all together. To make the "address" section of the envelope I just traced the inside of a die and added hand drawn dots and dashes.
A few chicken prints for fun on the back of the envelope.
Copics Used;
C1, C3, C5, YR07, YR09

Happy Halloween!

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
The Design Teams over on the One Crazy Stamper and High Hopes Blogs are using Fall/ Halloween themed stamps to get you inspired!! "Ghost Trio" is one of my favourite HH stamps for Halloween! There's something about their expressions that just endear them to me!
I decided to make a night sky background for them using a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I fussy cut the image out using my Brother Cut N Scan and popped them up using some foam squares. The sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "Block Happy Halloween". I also jumped out of my comfort zone and used Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol to colour with. I still have to practice but loved how my image turned out!
I added some splatters to the night sky using a paint brush and some Pico Black Embellisher and some Copic Opaque ink.
Here you can see I also used some gold splatters using a gold glitter pen and water. I was trying to mimic stars in the sky.
Prismacolor Pencils:
Dark Brown, Chocolate
Orange, Cadium Orange Hue, Jasmine
10% Warm Grey, Violet, Spring Green

Happy Stamping!

Dahlia's Blooms

Good Day DDS Fans!
I'm popping in today to share this cutie called "Dahlia's Blooms" by Digi Doodle Studios! I love gardening and can't wait to get my gardens put in. We just moved to a new home and we don't even have grass yet, so I may have to wait a while LOL!
I printed off the "Dahlia's Blooms" digital image and then set to colouring her with y Copic Markers. Then I cut out the digital image to make a "mask" and applied it over on coloured image. Now I set about making the clouds and grass using Distress Inks and Sponge Daubers. I held my breath hoping it turned out as I slowly took off the mask. Whew...... it worked LOL. If It hadn't Dahlia would have been fussy cut lol. I added Crystal Stickles into the centres of all the flowers for a bit of bling!

Crazy Friends!

Hi Ai Fans!
When I saw tis stamp set from Art Impressions called "Crazy Friends" set, I immediately thought of a photo booth. You know the kind that's popular right now with a bunch of props you can use to have your picture taken with?!
I had the perfect YNS Insta Polaroid dies that gave the feel of the photo booth effect!
I am using paper from the Echo Park "Fashionista" 6x6 collection and matched that colour theme to my stamped image. I added some Crystal Stickles to each of the Gals for a fun element! A bit of twine, enamel dots and a camera charm finish everything off!
I love that this "Crazy Friends" set comes with 3 different sentiments and used one of them in the smaller Instalove Polaroid Frame.
