Winter Owl!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
We finally have some winter weather and snow here in Ontario Canada. I'm feeling like this little "Winter Owl" from High Hopes Stamps is perfect for the Winter vibe here! 
I've had this paper from LDRS Called "Arctic Winter" that I've been dying to use and it was perfect for this adorable "Winter Owl" image. Winter Owl actually has some Christmas ornaments in the stamp. I masked them off before stamping my image for more of a winter theme rather than Christmas. I added Crystal Stickles to the pink areas on her hat and scarf and Liquid Appliqué to the snow on the branches. A bit pink bow finishes everything off.
I popped the inner octagon and image up with foam tape for a dimensional look.
More papers for a decorated inside and the High Hopes "Winter Wonderland" sentiment.
Copics Used:
W00, W0, W1, W2, W3
BV23, BV25, R81, R83
E74, E77, YG63, YG67

Happy Stamping!

Hi Ya!

Hi DDS Fans!
It's Saturday and my turn to post some inspiration over on the Digi Doodle Studios Facebook Group! I just love this little cutie "Joanie"! Joanie has yellow belt which means that she is not a novice and has demonstrated basic knowledge in Karate. WTG Joanie!!
I printed the digital image "Joanie" and then coloured her in with my Copic Markers. I decided to use papers from the Digi Doodle Studios "Martial Arts" Digital Background papers. A nice big bow finished off my card design. The sentiment "Hi Ya!" is from the DDS "Martial Arts Encouraging Sentiments" digital pack.
I used more papers from the "Martial Arts Background" digital papers on the onside and another sentiment from the "Martial Arts Encouraging sentiments pack. I love decorating the inside of my cards to tie everything all together.

Warm Winter Wishes!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
Today I'm sharing this cute trio of cards to hopefully brighten your winter day! I used the High Hopes image called "Bluebirdy".
I coloured this cutie with my Copic Markers and then fussy cut her out using my Brother Cut N Scan.  I'm using papers from the Pebbles "Winter Wonderland" 6x6 collection. 
I popped "Bluebirdy" up on top of the Lacey circle with some foam tape for added dimension.
Each bird has some Stickles added to her fur trim and pom pom for added fun! A few Doodlebug sequins finish everything off. The "Dot Warm Winter Wishes" sentiment is also from High Hopes.
Copics Used:
BG05, BG07, BG09, BG10, BG11

Lena's Teddy Bear!

Happy Saturday DDS Fans!
Today for my inspiration post over on the Digi Doodle Studios Facebook page I am using the digital stamp called "Lena's Teddy Bear". Teddy Bears always seem to bring comfort and it looks like it's Lena's favourite "stuffy"!
Today I chose papers from the Doodlebug "Hello" 6x6 collection and coloured my image to match the fun papers. I added some white gel pen polka dots for a bit of fun. The sentiment is also from the Digi Doodle Studios "Friendship" digital sentiment collection. A fun double bow and some blue glittered enamel dots finish everything off.
You can see how I added some dimension by using foam squares to pop the image up.
I used some of the leftover paper on the inside and another DDS sentiment from the "Friendship" collection.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E31, E33, E35, E37, E50

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
It's Winter now and many fishermen I know love to go ice fishing. I thought this would be a perfect card for one of them. Meet "Fishing Penguin" from High Hopes Stamps! He's just adorable and perfect for a winter themed card!
The Echo Park "Celebrate Winter" 6x6 collection was perfect for my card! I added some Spectrum Noir Glitter pen to the ice and a bit of Diamond Stickles as well.
I decorated the inside as well and used the HH Sentiment called "Hello Winter" from the New "Woodsy Christmas" Collection.

New "Happy Anything" Challenge!

Hello DDS Fans!
Happy New Years Day to all of you! It's the first of the month so that means Digi Doodle Studios has a new Challenge starting today over on the Challenge Blog. The theme this month is "Happy Anything"! I am always happiest when I get to visit with my friends! and coffee or tea is a staple of those visits! When I saw the adorable digital stamp "Tea Time" I knew it was perfect for the Challenge theme!
I made a card base using my Silhouette Cameo from a Nested Die svg file. It was super easy because the file also helped me create all my layers perfectly. I coloured my image with my Copic Markers and then fussy cut it out using my Brother Cut N Scan. Some foam tape helped pop up the image for added dimension to my card.  It's hard to see but all the bows and flowers have Clear Glitter Pen added to them. The "Sweet Friend" sentiment is from the DDS Digital sentiment "Friendship" Collection.
Here you can see the dimension and I added tiny pink pearls to the sprigs in her hair. I also used a white gel pen and added some polka dots to both girls!
On the inside I also used a sentiment from the DDS "Friendship" digital collection.
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20, RV06
Hair: E21, E23, E31, E50/ E31, E33, E35, E47
