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!

Camper: BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78 / BV23, BV25, BV29

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.

Bees Knees!

Happy Tuesday HH and OCS Fans!
Tuesdays mean I am over on the High Hopes And One Crazy Stamper Blogs sharing this cute bear with you! This cutie is called "Buzzin' By Bear"!
I found a SVG file in the Silhouette Design Shop in the shape of a bee hive and made it into a card base for my Bear. I used some paper from the Echo Park Fine & Dandy 6x6 collection that matches perfectly! I fussy cut out some of the little bees and popped thump with foam tape!
The "Bees Knees" sentiment from High Hope Stamps matches my theme perfectly!
I popped "Buzzin' By Bear" up on an action wobble for a fun interactive element!
Here you can see the wobble in action !

It's A Girl!

Hello DDS Fans!
Today I wanted to share a fun project I made! I wanted to make a fun keepsake for a New Baby Girl! I decided to make a little mini album and decided that the Digi Doodle Studios digital image called "Baby Love" would look absolutely adorable on the front of the album!
I found a cute SVG file in the Silhouette Design Store and used it to create this little mini album. I cut out all the pieces and used paper from the Echo Park A New Addition 6x6 collection. I kept it all together with 1" Binder Rings with some pink double bows added for decoration. I have to admit this was hard to photograph LOL. I had to hang it on a straw (all I could think of LOL) and attach it to this frame. Some enamel dots and a bit of Stickles or sparkle finish off the front of my album.
I decorated each side of the "onesie" and added stickers and hearts from my stash of "baby themed" stuff. Now the New Mommy can add a few photos to take with her to share with friends!
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E21, E95, R20, white gel pen
Hair: E23, E25, E27, E29/ Y21, Y26

Time To Celebrate!

Howdy All!
I've said it before and I'll say it again..... the "Girlfriends line" from Art Impressions are my favourite images to work with! They all just remind me of me and my friends and the sentiments make me giggle! On my card today I am using the "Party Girls" set.
I chose paper from the Bo Bunny Penelope 6x6 collection. I love the blue, greens and brown colours in this collection. I am using a Pretty Pink Posh Die to frame my coloured image. I added some Spectrum Noir Glitter pen to the balloons for a bit of sparkle. A blue and brown ribbon bow finishes everything off!
The "Party Girl" set some with 3 sentiments. I used one of them on the front and then this one on my decorated inside of my card.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20, RV17

Tropical Santa!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
Everybody deserves a little R&R especially Santa after a busy Christmas season! "Tropical Santa" from High Hopes is doing just that! I think he's even got a bit of a tan!
I decided to use paper from the American Crafts "Sunny" 6x6 collection. I got my Sketch idea from "Lili of the Valley Sketches". There are lots of wonderful 6x6 sketches over there to choose from. I added the HH "Just Arrived" sentiment to show that "Tropical Santa" just arrived for his much needed vacation. 
On the inside I created the sentiment on my computer. I am using a Ring Frame die on the inside with more of the Designer Papers. I used some of the circle cutout on the front of my card. I always try to use up my "scraps" when I can!

Copics Used:
Skin: E11, E33, E51, R20
Hair: N1, N3, N4, N7
Pinks: RV04, RV06

Catching Z's!

I'm popping in to share a masculine themed card using the Art Impressions "Catching Z's" stamp set. It's always great to have a few masculine cards on hand and this one is perfect for some of the men that I know!
I decided to use paper from the older Echo Park Reflections Fall 6x6 collection. After I coloured my image with Copic Sketch markers I used my Brother Cut N Scan to "fussy" cut around my guy! Then using foam tape I popped him up against my card design. I love using foam tape or squares as it really helps to add dimension to your card.
The sentiment comes with the set and cracks me up every time I read it! Sometimes I wonder if there is more "sleeping" going on then actual fishing when the guys are out in the boat LOL.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20

You're So Cool!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the second week of the Art Impressions Challenge called "Playing Dress Up" and the release of the new Girlfriend stamps. I am playing with the "Sunny Shades" set today!
 I thought these Gals looked so cool in all their fancy shades! A lightbulb went off in my head and I decided to try to make my own word card base. I used my Silhouette Cameo and created the word cool and then made it into a card base. It turned out better than I imagined! Gotta love when something you envision comes to life!
This card uses paper from my stash, I'm not even sure of the name. I cut out my stamped image with my Brother Cut N Scan and then popped it up with foam tape. I also added some Crystal Stickles to each of the girls for some added "cool" sparkle! This card is a bit on the large size, measuring 8" x 4.5".
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21 / E00, E21, E95 / E11, E33, E51/ R20, RV17

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
I've got one more of the High Hopes Stamps adorable "Divas" to share with you today! This is the super cute "Gemma"! When I started to design this card, I just pictured her in Paris for some reason.... enjoying life and painting until her little hearts content!
So since "Gemma" is in "Paris", I knew the Paris Girl collection from Carta Bella was perfect for her! I've been hoarding this collection but thought Gemma was deserving LOL. I added some Crystal Stickles to her hair band, flower and painted hearts. The MFT Eiffel Tower die was the perfect addition to my themed card!
On the decorated inside I added the HH Sentiment called "You Make Me Smile".
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E74, E77, E79
Pinks: R81, R83, R85

Easel: E43, E44, E47
Grey: C1, C2, C4, black gel pen polka dots
Background: B000, B00

Take some time to enjoy life just like Gemma is!

Happy Mother's Day!
I told you I'd be back with more of these cute HummingBirds from Pretty Pink Posh! I thought this would be perfect for my Mom for Mother's Day! Not only does my Mom love Hummingbirds but purple is her favourite colour!
 I made 3 flowers using s Silhouette Cut file and added them to my card. I wanted to keep a consistent colour theme so I coloured my birds in the same purple tones as the flowers. I used a Embossing folder to create the white background of this Eclipse card. Some glitter on their heads add a pretty touch.
Here you can see the different dimensions on my card.

Copics Used:
BV01, BV02, BV04, BV08

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there today! You are all amazing!
