I went with a Red, White and Black colour theme on this card. I fussy cut the stamped image and added some foam tape to adhere it with for added dimension. A couple black enamel dots and twine were the perfect finishing touches.

Gotta Garden Set!

Hi Ai Fans!
This "Gotta Garden" Set from Art Impressions is just perfect for anyone you know that has a green thumb! I'm great at outdoor plants and creating baskets or planters but give me a houseplant and I will kill it every time LOL!
I made a cute Watering Can Box card using a file from the Silhouette Store to showcase this cute pair of Gardeners! I love that box cards can fold flat for easy mailing but look so cute when standing up!
I also created a card using the "Gotta Garden" set and papers from the Pebbles Garden Party 6x6 collection. Both images have Spectrum Noir Glitter pen added to them as well as Silver Wink of Stella.
Copics Used:

Friends and A Full Tank!

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
Yesterday was the New Release of "Modes of Transportation" stamps over at High Hopes! And what an exciting release it is!! It certainly screams Masculine but I know a lot of women that love their cars as well!
I'm  back today sharing a card I made using the "Ron's Royce" stamp.
I wanted to keep a vintage feel to my card to match the older car image. I'm using paper from the Bo Bunny Mama Razzi2 6x6 collection. I inked all the edges of my papers with Distress ink in Vintage Photo for that vintage feel. The sentiment "Tank of Gas" is also from the New Release. You can't see in the photo but I added Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter pen to the car so the body has that shine to it like a pearlized paint job. A few enamel dots and a bit of twine finish off my card.
Copics Used:
E41, E42, E43
YR24, YR27
C0, C1, C2
W1, W4, W5, W8
B000, B00, B01

Head on over to the High Hopes and OCS Blogs to find more inspiration from the Design Team Divas.
Happy Stamping!

HH New Release Day!

Hi HH &OCS Fans!
It's New Release day over at High Hopes! Can I get a whoot whoot!! The stamps in the "Modes of Transportation" release are perfect for all the guys in your life!
I am using the oh so adorable "Daisy". I just love VW Bugs and Hubby and I still play "Punch Buggy" game when we are driving. We don't "punch" each other but keep score..... different points for the type and if it's an old fashioned one. And if you don't say the colour or say it wrong it's minus points! Oh Ya we are competitive LOL!
As soon as I saw this stamp I knew I wanted to paper piece it in flowered paper. The Doodlebug "Bunnyville" and "Spring Things" 6x6 collections, had the perfect papers to use! The sentiment is also from the New Release and is called "Best Miles".
Copics Used:
B0000, B000, B00. B01
R83, R85
T5, T6, T8
Y38, RV17

Head on over to High Hopes and see all the "Modes of Transportation" new releases!

Happy Stamping!

Puppy Love!

Hello Digi Doodle Studio Fans!
I am a big dog lover and I have three fur babies of my own! There is nothing better than coming home to wet sloppy kisses and unconditional love. It doesn't matter if I am gone two min or five hours, the welcome home is the same every time! I am using the Digi Doodle Studios digital stamp called "Puppy Love"! Look how excited they are to see their owner!
I thought the "Puppy Love" 6x6 collection from Doodlebug was the perfect paper to use for my card today! I'm using the Banner Die set from CDD and various colours of Doodlebug enamel dots on my card! A white gel pen added some fun polka dots to her outfit. I tried a different way to do the hair, using a terry cloth and some blender solution to give it some texture. I wasn't totally happy with the outcome, so I went back in and added some small dots in the colours I had used. I think it's a bit better now.
Both the sentiment I used on my card are from the Digi Doodle Studios digital sentiment collection called "Cutie Paws".
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E21, E95, R20, RV17
Hair: E71, E74, E77, E79, Copic Blender Solution
Outfit: B24, B26, B28 / YG23, YG25 / W1, W3, W5

I Call It A Mess LOL!

Hi Ai Fans!
This stamp just makes me laugh! It is totally not me as I am very organized but I could see it being one of my kids as they don't seem to care where their clothes land! This stamp is actually a Try-Fold image called "Floordrobe" from Art Impressions.
I decided to use the "Floordrobe TF", in a different way then intended! I stamped the "lady" image first, masked her off and then stamped the remaining 2 images to create one stamp. It's great when you can use your stamps different ways to get more out of them! You can't really see in the picture but I also cut out an extra pair of socks, both shoes, the white collared top and the cat. Then I popped them up with some foam tape. Adds interest to the card for sure!
On this card I used the images in the "try-fold way" using an Ai pre-made"Try-Fold card base". I tried to draw in and colour a wall and wall paper behind my image.
I used a small piece of Velcro to keep the card closed with.
My colouring bled through to the other side so I added Designer paper to the flaps and mounted the card onto a 5.5" square card base.

Copics Used:
E00, E11, E21, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47
B000, B01, B21, B23, BV02, BV04, BV08
Y35, Y38, RV13, RV14, RV17, RV19
C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C6, C8
Black Gel Pen
Strawberry Ice Kirarina Wink Pen

Hard Working Bob!

Hi High Hopes Friends!
Today I am sharing with you a cute Barn shaped card I made to showcase the hard working "Bob Loves His Tractor" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.
I used a Silhouette SVG file to make my barn card and corn stalks. I coloured Bob using my Copic Sketch markers and added a bit of Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen to the silver areas and puffs of smoke.  
I popped some of the pieces with foam tape to add a bit more dimension to my card. I fussy cut  my stamped image with my Brother Cut N Scan and popped it up as well.
Copics Used:
E00, E11, E15, E17, E21, E43, E44, E47

Take Life!

Hello Ai Fans!
Exciting news for Ai and Hobby Lobby Fans!! The Art Impressions "Latte Love" stamp is now available at Hobby Lobby in a wooden block! It's called "Take Life" and stamps just beautifully!
I wanted to keep the background fairly clean to just show off these adorable Girlfriends! I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder to create the background and just added a few enamel dots to finish things off.
Of course I had to add some Spectrum Noir Glitter pen to each of the gals too for a bit of sparkle!
I made a frame with the MFT Zig Zag Circle Stax, and cut a circle the same size into my background. Then I mounted the background onto my card base using some foam tape for a bit of added dimension.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21 / E00, E21, E95, R20
Hair: N3, N5, N7 / Y21, YR24 / E43, E44, E47

Happy Camper Mini Try-fold!

Hi Ai Fans!
Today marks the second week of the "Door Openings" Challenge and release of the new Mini Try-folds from Art Impressions! I am using the "Happy Camper MTF" today on my card.
I am using papers from the Doodlebug Flea Market 6x6 collection. I decided to make it look like a little scene by adding the grassy hills and fence. This is the first layer to the try-fold. The set comes with the dies that you use to create an opening to your next layer.
Here is the middle layer to the set.
And then finally you open to reveal the cute little fox having a nap!

With this card I decided to use the stamps and dies but not create a try-fold card. I just layered the images and added them to my card. I created a night sky using Distress Inks and added a few little wooden stars that I added yellow Stickles too.
Distress Inks Used:
Black Soot
Cracked Pistachio
Spiced Marmelade
Blueprint Sketch
Picked Raspberry
Ink Splatters: Copic Opaque, Tsukineko Black Pico Embellisher, water
