It's A Bad Day!

Hi Ai Fans!
Today I am sharing with you a few cards I created using the Art Impressions stamps set from the Zoo Crew line called "Flamingo Set"
I tried a few variations in my colouring, and since I couldn't decide on a favourite I'm showing you all three!
I coloured up my images using Copic Markers and then cut around the image. I decided to use some papers from the Echo Park Splendid Sunshine 6x6 pad. I thought the bright colours went perfectly with my Flamingos. I kept the design simple and only added some navy twine and a few sequins.
Copics Used:
Flamingo body: RV21, RV23, RV25/ R20, R21, R22
Beak: N3, N5, R00, R02/ YR04/YR07
Legs: N0, N1/ R00, R02

Thanks for stopping by and.....
Happy Stamping!

Hey Honey Buns!

Hi Ai Fans!
Today is the second week of the Shake, Rattle & Roll Challenge over on the Art Impressions Blog!
Art Impressions also just released some super cute Easter stamps to coincide with this Challenge! I am sharing with you one of those sets on my card today called "Honey Buns" set.
This cute bunny has an action wobble for his sweet little bum! The set comes with the bunny image, a "bum" image, sentiment and a die to cut out the bum. I decided to paper piece the bunny with Easter paper from my stash. I also stamped the tail an extra time, fussy cut it out and then popped it up with a foam dot.
Here's a side view so you can see the action wobble and the popped up cute tail!
I used a Easter stamp from my stash and cut a cute border with some of the leftover paper and placed it down the edge of the card. I love doing this as it uses up scrap paper and also ties the front and inside of the card together!
Copics Used:
Bunny: E51, E53, E55, E57 
Feet: R00, R01, R02
Cheeks: R20 
Eyes: Black and white gel pens

Happy Hump Day!
I wanted to share with you a card I made using the Stamping Bella Uptown Girl "Chandler Makes A Choice". I love the Uptown Girl line and this stamp is "sweet" in more ways than one LOL! Oh the choices Chandler has to make! If it was me I'd say "I'll take one of everything!!
This card base is made with my Silhouette Cameo which made it very easy to put it together! I coloured the image with my Copic Markers and then added a touch of Clear Glitter wink of Stella pen to various parts on all the treats. A bit of Doodlebug Twine and some YNS enamel dots finished everything off!
This sentiment comes with the stamp set.
Copics Used:
E08, E11, E43, E44, E47
R32, R35, R37, R39, R81, R83, R85
N0, N1, N2, N3, N5, N7, N9

Happy Tuesday!
Today's card was super fun to make and those adorable frogs just make me grin!
I used the High Hopes Stamps image called "Froggy Stack" and the sentiment is called "You're Un-frogettable". I created my own background and layered it on top of some polka dot paper from the Echo Park Dots & Stripes Christmas 6x6 collection. A bit of natural twine and a cute charm finished off my design.
I created my background by making my own stencils. For the cloud stencil I used a die border and the cat tails I used a svg. file and my Silhouette Cameo. Then I sponged Distress ink onto the white paper underneath.
On the inside I used the sentiment called "One of Those Days" also by HH! I also added a border  down the side of the card made with the MFT Small Monarch Border die.
Copics Used:
Frogs: YG03, YG25, YG17, N3, R24 
Flower: YG67, YR04, YR07, YR09, Y38
Lily Pad: YG61, YG63, YG67
