Road Trip?!!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the New Release of "Work and Play" and "Funny Farm" today over at Art Impressions! I am using the "Road Trip" set (#4931) on my project today! This set is awesome as it has 13 smaller stamps with 3 sentiments included! All kinds of combinations for sure right?!
I couldn't decide what to use so I thought "hey lets do a little scene"! I made a Pop Up Box card and added my coloured images to make this scene! I am using paper from the Echo Park "I Love My Family" 6x6 collections and the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop Up Die.
After colouring muy inanes I cut them out with My Brother Cut N Scan and added them to the box card.
From the top view you can see I made a little road with some black paper and a white gel pen so it looks like they are driving down the highway.

Gingerbread Man Jack!

Today I am sharing with you a card I made using one of the new Digital Images from the "Gingerbread Kids" release over at Digi Doodle Studios! This is the adorable "Jacks Ginger Cookie Baker.
I decided to use a file from the Silhouette Store and my Cameo to make my card base and when I saw this "Gingerbread Man Trifold" I knew it would be perfect! I used papers from the Doodlebug "Milk & Cookies" 6x6 collection.
On the inside you see the main image and a sentiment from the DDS "A Season OF Cheer Christmas Holiday" digital sentiments. On the opposite side I added a blank piece of paper so that you can use that part to sign the cad.
This is what the cards look like when they are closed.
My first attempt at the Trifold card made quite a small card, so I decided to use it for a matching Gift Tag. Then I expanded the file to create a more regular sized card to match.
Copics Used:
E33, E34, E35, E37, R22, R24, R27
YG21, YG23, RV04, RV06, RV09
BG02, BG05, B000

Santa Paws!

Hi Ai Fans!
I'm a huge dog lover so when I saw this set I just knew I had to have it and make some adorable cards with it! This set is from Art Impressions and is called "Santa Paws"! Aren't they just the sweetest Christmas dogs ever!
I searched through my stash (huge pile) of Christmas pads and found this paper from Carta Bella called Christmas Day. It's an older collection that I have been hoarding but I just knew it would work perfectly with these images!
Jere's the decorated inside of my cards using some of the negative die cuts.
It's hard to see but all these dogs have some Stickles on then for a nice touch sparkle!
This stamp makes me giggle as I can just imagine the sound coming from them all LOL!

Copics Used:
E25, E27, E29, E31, E33, E35, E40, E41, E43, E50, E51, E53

Kangaroo Mouthful Card!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the 2nd week of the Ai Challenge called "Funny & Punny" and also the release of the new "Mouthful" stamp sets. Today I'm playing with the new "Kangaroo Mouthful".
I decided to make 2 of these cuties, one for the girls and one for the boys! I love that these sets come with sentiments and accessories, so you can make so many different cards from the one set.
On both of these cards I used some Copic Blender Solution "0" on the Kangeroo's to add some fun texture to their fur.
The set comes with dies to cut the little accessories out and a little die to make an opening in the Kangeroo's stomach so you can insert a little image. I cut the main images with my Brother Cut N Scan machine.
Inside of my card
Copics Used:
Kangaroo: E11, E13, E15, R01, R20

Adorable Penguins!

Hi HH and OCS Fans!
I've been wanting to try this style of "Flex or bendy" card for a while now and when I saw the Penguins from the High Hopes "Winter Joy" release I just knew they would work perfectly! Penguins hold a special place in my heart as they were my Grandma's favourites and they always make me think of her! 

I found the card base file in the Silhouette store and used my Cameo to create the base. Then I stamped and coloured the "Happy Penguin, Penguin Earmuff and Chilly Penguin" with my Copic Markers. After cutting them out with my Cameo, I popped them up with foam squares and added them to my little scene!
Here you can see how the cards works. You just tuck the tabs into place and it creates that "bend" in your card. You can still mail it as it will be flat when the tabs aren't tucked in!
Copics Used:
C1, C5, C6, C8, YR04, YR09, YR23, YR27
BG13, BG18, BG34, R00, R01, R81, R83, R85, R89

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my card!

Happy Stamping!

Hi Digi Doodle Fans!
"Tis The Season" for Holiday parties and this adorable girl from Digi Doodle Studios called "Chanel" is ready to go! Chanel is from the New Release called "Masquerade Ball".

I thought the perfect Holiday Party colours for Chanel would be gold! I chose papers from my stash that were gold themed and matted them with black cardstock. A bit of gold ribbon, and some sequins finish everything off.
I added glossy accents to the bubbles and here you get a better idea of the gold foiled papers that I used.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E55, E57, E59
Outfit: Y21, Y23, Y26, Y28/ C7, C9

Bubbles: B000, B01

Make sure you head on over to the Digi Doodle Studios online store and see all the new digital stamps from the "Masquerade Ball" Release! You're going to be wowed!
