Sneak Peek

Happy Tuesday!

It's so exciting..... High Hopes Stamps has a new release starting May 1st and this week the Design Team Gals are doing some sneak peaks of the new images! I'm showing you the super cute "Gabriel's A Fisherman". I just adore this little guy!

I've had this paper for quite awhile and when I saw this image I knew it was perfect for this little fisherman! The "Keep Calm and Fish On" is from the new Sentiment Set #1 which will also be released on My 1st. I  stamped the Keep Calm with Ranger Adirondack Ink in Tree Branch. I also inked the edges of my image and inside sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Bundled Sage.
Shhhh..... don't tell my Hubby but I raided his tackle box for the bobber, lure and fish hook that I used for embellishments on this card!

Inside of my card using a sentiment from the soon to be released Sentiment Set #1.

I stamped Gabriel With Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black on X-Press It Copic Paper and coloured him with my Copic Sketch markers.

Skin:E00, E11, R20
Hair: E30, E31, E33, E35

Giant Cake!


TGIF the weekend is almost here! It's my post for Art Impressions today and I wanted to try something different than colouring with my Copic markers! I decided to use the Giant Cake set, some white ink and embossing powder. If you need a quick card this is the technique to use! Sometimes using your markers takes a bit of time but this was super fast!

I love decorating the inside of my cards as it just seems to finish off the whole design!

I filmed a video if you want to see the process. Excuse any dogs barking LOL, it always seems they bark as soon as I start filming!

Have a great weekend and Happy Stamping!

Sally Swimmer!

Happy Weekend everyone!

For Today's post over on the One Crazy Stamper blog I am sharing with you a card made using the Art Impression stamp set called "Sally Swimmer". When I first saw this image I burst out laughing! She's quite the character isn't she? I think she must be a true child at heart LOL!

The paper is from the Bo Bunny Lemonade collection. I love the bright colours of this collection! I added twine and charms on both of these cards. I'm loving enamel dots right now and the gumdrops from Your Next Stamp are wonderful! The sentiment on the front of the card comes with the Sally Swimmer set!

Here's a look at the inside of my card. The sentiment is another Ai stamp called "Style".

Copics used:
Skin E00, E11, R20, RV25
Tube: Y11, Y13, Y15, YR14, YG23, YG25
Goggles, earrings & flippers: YG21, YG23, YG25
Bathing suit: RV04, RV06, RV09, white Uni ball pen polka dots
Sand: E30, E31, E33
Shadow around image: B000

You still have time to enter into our current Challenge for April called "Anything Goes".
We'd love for you to play along and I'd love to see what you come up with!
Happy crafting!
