Work of Art!

It's the last day of the "Christmas in July" over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs. I'm finishing off the month with this adorable snowman stamp called "Making Friends" from High Hopes Stamps. Snowmen and Penguins are my favourite winter "friends" so of course I think his Snowman is just so super cute. 
The paper is from an older Echo Park collection called "I Love Winter". I just love the blues and reds in this collection! I added some Diamond Stickles for a bit of sparkle and a few enamel dots as well. The sentiment from HH called "Dot Warm Winter Wishes" is perfect for the front of my card.
On the inside I used the HH sentiment called "Work of Art". I absolutely love this saying! It's so true as you really do put all your love into building a snowman!

It's the Mileage!

Hi Ai Fans!
The other day I saw some kids biking like this and remembered I had this stamp called "Bikers" from Art Impressions! Now this pair are definitely not "kids" but I think they are young at heart don't you?!
The "Bikers" stamps is on the larger side so it fit perfectly on an A2 sized card! A few enamel dots were all I needed to finish off my card!
I used the Ai sentiment called "It's the Mileage" which I thought was perfect for this fun loving pair!

Summer Vibe Challenge!

Hello Ai Fans!
It's the second week of the "Summer Vibes" Challenge over on the Art Impressions Blog! I decided to use the "Disco" Set. To me this guy's shirt just screams Summer!
I coloured him up to match my paper choices from the Doodlebug Sweet Summer 6x6 collection. When my Hubby and I have travelled in the past, there always seems to be that one guy that likes to shake his booty LOL. A few drinks and look out. That is what this set reminds me of!
I made 2 cards with identical layouts but used different combinations of paper.
Here you can see his "Booty shake" LOL.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll join us over on the Ai Blog and share your Summer Vibe cards!

Happy Stamping!

Christmas Carollers!

Hi HH & OCS Followers!
I'm popping in again to share another "Christmas in July" themed card using this adorable stamp from High Hopes called "Carolers". We Used to spend Christmas Eve with my cousins when we were young and after dinner and a visit from Santa, we would go around the neighbourhood carolling. These are very fond memories for me!
I love the very non-traditional colours in this 6x6 collection from Scrapberry called Elegantly Festive!  I added the HH sentiment called "Peace, Love, Joy". A couple strips of ribbon, some enamel dots and a nice flower finish everything off!
I used the HH sentiment called "Sparkle & Cheer" on the decorated inside of my card.

DDS Christmas In July!

Hi Digi Doodle Fans!
The monthly Challenge over on the Digi Doodle Challenge Blog this month is "Christmas In July"! I decided to make this cute Gift Tag using the digital stamp called "Nutcracker Noelle".
I printed my digital image and then coloured it with my Copic Sketch Markers. I used my Brother Cut N Scan to fussy cut out the image. Then using a Silhouette SVG file "Nested Artisan Tags" I made my paper layers. Looking at this now I see I glued the die cut upside down LOL (ssshhhh don't tell anyone). I added a bit of Crystal Stickles for some fun glitter.
Here you can see the added dimension to this tag. I popped my image up with foam tape. I also cut out the die 4x and glued it all together so that it has dimension as well. The bow is also triple cut and slightly offset for more dimension.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E29
Outfit: R39, R56, R89 / C1, C2, C3, C5, C7
Penguin: C6, C8, C9 /  R39, R56, R89 / YR12, YR16
Present: C1 / G94, G99

Since we are moving when I made this card, I had to take the pictures outside as all my lights are packed LOL! Makes a bit of a different background!

Happy Stamping!

Christmas Joy!

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
It's Christmas in July over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs and I thought this adorable Snowman called "Christmas Joy Snowy"was perfect for this theme!
It's been fun to pull out my Christmas papers and these papers are from the Echo Park I Love Christmas 6x6 collection. I added the "Think Snow" sentiment which is perfect to remember on these hot summer days! I love the Stampendous Spoonful of Snow added under Snowy. You sprinkle it on and heat from underneath to melt it. It's just so pretty in person!
Here's the decorated inside with the HH sentiment called "Work of Art".

It's a Hoedown!

Howdy Ai Fans!
I'm just popping in today to share with you this adorable couple from Art Impressions called "Square Dancers". Oh My Gosh...... these two just make me giggle!! They are all ready to strut their stuff at the Hoedown!
I decided to use papers from the Doodlebug "Down on the Farm" 6x6 collection, I thought they went perfectly with these "Square Dancers".
On this card I coloured it using the lines exactly as they stamp.
But on this card I used the coloured image on the packaging and tried to copy the plaid print on her dress. It was fun trying to add the lines! It sure makes the image look totally different!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the second week of the "Masculine Cards" Challenge over on the Art Impressions Blog. It's always great to have a few "man cards" on hand and Art Impressions has many great guys to choose from!
Today I am using the "Cowboy Wiggle Wobble" stamp set. He is just adorable when he dances on the action wobble! I chose papers from the Doodlebug Down On The Farm 6x6 collection.
The sets comes with the image, dies, 2 sentiments, brads and an action wobble. Everything you need to make an interactive fun card. You can buy more wobbles and mini brads too, so you can keep using this set.
See how cute is this guy!!

Moo-rry Christmas!

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
It's Christmas in July over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs! I decided to use "Charlie Christmas Tag" to create my card with today! I just love the way Charlie is peeking over the string of lights!
I used some paper from my stash and created a black card base to adhere my layers to. I coloured Charlie with my Copic markers and popped the image up with foam tape for more dimension. I added the HH Sentiment called "Moo-rry Christmas" to the middle of the tag using my MISTI.  I love adding Liquid Appliqué to the fur trim on his hat. When it dries and you use your heat gun it pops up for a fun element. A piece of ribbon, bow and some Spectrum Moir Glitter pen to the lights finished off my design.
Copics Used:
N1, N5, N6, N8
R00, R01, R02, R24, R27, R29

Hope you are all staying cool in this heat wave we've been having!
Happy Stamping!
