Bashful Owl!

Guess Whooo?!
Yup it's me again......LOL just sharing with you my Design Team post for High Hopes Stamps over on the HH Blog. Today's card is using the cute "Bashful Owl", "Large Bow" and "Tree Stump". I am loving these cute "pudgy" owls and the accessories you can purchase to go with them. It just makes them so versatile and fun to create with.
I started by stamping "Bashful Owl" on my Copic X-Press It paper. Then using a Post-it Note, I re-stamped the owl and fussy cut it out. What you want to do is then lay the Post-it Note over the top of your owl and then stamp the "Tree Stump" where you want it. By "masking" the owl you can make it look like she's sitting on the stump perfectly. This paper is from my stash as well as the ribbon! A shout out to Natalie M. for showing me how to make a bow using your fingers. This triple loop bow turned out great! The "Large Bow" accessory is fussy cut out and popped up on her head with a small foam square.
I used the "Owl Always Love You" sentiment on the inside!
Copics Used:
Owl: W00, W0, W01, W3, W5 / YR02, YR04 / R000
Stump: E51, E53, E55, E57, E59
Bow: R56, R59
Outline: Y00

Don't forget to head on back to the High Hopes Blog tomorrow for the beginning of our June Challenge! 

Happy Stamping!

Hi Everyone!
Just popping in to share with you a card I made using the adorable Penny Black stamp called "Goodness".
For this card I got out my Heidi Swapp Mini Minc Machine. If you don't know what that is, it's basically a laminator that uses toner based images and adds beautiful foils to.  I used paper from the Heidi Swapp Minc 6x6 pad and ran it through the machine with blue foil. Then using a Heidi Swapp Toner sheet,  I die cut the heart banner and big hugs embellishments and using red foil ran that through the Minc. The picture doesn't do the beautiful foils justice! I also decided to add Clear Wink of Stella to the lollipop and hearts on her skirt.
I used some of the leftover paper on the inside to tie it all together!
I had coloured up 2 images, so this is my second creation using the Penny Black "Goodness" stamp.
The inside sentiment is from High Hopes and is called "Smiling".
Copics Used:
Skin: E01, E11, R20
Hair: Y23, YR14, YR27
Dress: B91, B93, B95, B97, R24
Lollipop: N9, R24
Shoes: N7, N9 & glossy accents

I am entering the second card into the:

Thanks for stopping by!

Howdy Ai Fans!
How fabulous do these Girlfriends look lounging in the hot tub?!! Today's card is using the Art Impressions Girlfriends "In the Tub" set.
I'm using paper and stickers from the Lori Whitlock Here and Now 12x12 paper pack. I totally forgot I had this set of papers and embellishments! I added a Scalloped Border punch to both sides of the middle strip for some interest. You can actually see some of the glitter from the Clear Wink of Stella pen I used on various parts of my design. Looks even better in person!
This sentiment comes with the "In the Tub" set!
Copics Used:
Skin Tones: E00, E11 / E50, E51 / E31, E13, E15 / R20 (cheeks) RV17 (lips)
Hair: Y21, YR21, YR23 / C5, C7, C9, B21 / E43, E44, E47, E49 / C1, C3, C5

Towels: C0, C1 / R20, R21, R24
