Happy As Two Pigs In Mud!

Howdy HH & OCS Fans!
There's nothing cuter than these two pigs having fun in the mud! This stamp is called "Happy Pigs" and is from High Hopes Stamps!
To start, I stamped and coloured my image with my Copic Markers. After I die cut a circle around the  image, I masked them off with masking paper. Then I added some clouds and grass to the image using the MFT Mini Clouds, Grassy Edges stencils and inks to create an outdoor scene. I love the "Barn Yard" paper from Bella Blvd. It's my go to "Farm" paper. A few enamel dots and the HH "Hogs and Kisses" sentiment finish off my card.
I always like to use scraps of the designer paper on the inside of my card for a finished feel. I added the HH sentiment called "Happy As 2 Pigs" which of course matches the card theme.
Copics Used:
R01, R02, R21, R25, R27
E43, E44, E47, E49, C8
Distress Oxide: Lucky Clover (grass)
                          Twisted Citron (grass)
Memories Baby Blue ink (sky)

Love N' Hugs!

Hello DDS Fans!
This digital stamp from Digi Doodle Studios called "My Girl"! Aren't they just the cutest couple?!!
"My Girl" reminds me so much of my Nephew and his girlfriend ! They are adorable together! I made this card with them in mind and hope that my Nephew will want to give this to Clara at some point.
Cameron and Clara
On Today's card I am using digital paper from Digi Doodles "Love & Friendship" Digital Background paper collection. I added some YNS gumdrops and a cute tiny bow for some fun elements. I also added Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter pen to the flowers, hearts and her socks (hard to tell in photo). The sentiment is also from DDS's "Love n' Hugs" digital sentiment collection.
I've added lots of layers and popped some elements up with foam tape for added dimension
The decorated inside also uses a sentiment from  DDS's "Love n' Hugs" digital sentiment collection.

Hannah's Heart!

Happy Tuesday HH & OCS Fans!
Today I am sharing with you a card I made using "Hannah's Heart" from High Hopes Stamps! Hannah is one of the first stamps I had from HH and I haven't used her in a long time. I forgot just how adorable she is and had to ink her up once again!
I decided to use papers from the MME "Happy Days" 6x6 collection. I just love the colour combinations in this pack! I made this card for any "love" occasion. The sentiment "Just Because" is also from High Hopes.
After stamping Hannah, I coloured her with my Copic markers to match the designer paper. I added some Crystal Stickles to the tiny hearts on her dress, her flower in her hat and the butterfly. Some matching ribbon, bow and adhesive sequins finish off my design.
Using leftovers from the designer paper I decorated the inside of my card and added the HH "A Hundred Hearts" sentiment.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E25, E27, E29
Outfit: BG72, BG75, BG78, YG23, YG25

You Are Loved!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
Valentine's Day is a two days away so I thought it was the perfect time to get this cutie out of hiding LOL! Meet "Ladybug Love" from High Hopes Stamps! She is just so stinking cute!
I created my own background using distress Oxide Inks in Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick on some Tim Holtz Distress Woodgrain paper. I added some ink splatters using Ebony Black Nuvo Drops, water and a paintbrush. I also used the Ebony Black Drops on her antenna. The "You Are Loved" sentiment on the front is also from High Hopes. A few die cut heart circles and enamel dots help to finish off my card.
On the inside I used the HH "Hugs & Hugs" Sentiment
Copics Used:
C5, C6, C8
R01, R02, R20, R22, R24
RV000, Y35, Y38, G24

It's New Release Day!

Hi DDS Fans!
It's an exciting day over at Digi Doodle Studios..... It's Release Day!!! The fabulous Dina has done it again with her new "Love and Friendship" digital stamps. This sweet digital stamp is called "Cheers" and I love that the dog is included. Nothing better than a little love and cheers between Besties!!
I chose papers from the Penny Black "Summer time" 6x6 collection. I decided to give the new fad of "peek-a-boo wheels" a try on this card. It was a bit hard to find some small words to fit the speech bubbles. I pulled out my SSS "Thoughtful Messages" set and it worked perfectly. You can't tell in the photos but I added Spectrum Noir Glitter pen to all the hair bows, and wine. A nice matching bow and tiny metal flower finishes everything off.
As you turn the wheel a different sentiment pops into view.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E44, E47, E49/ YR23, E97, E99/ E53, E55, E57

Hogs & Kisses!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!!
Valentine's Day is around the corner so I thought it was the perfect time to create a card using the High Hopes "Betsy Loves Barney" Stamp! Pigs are some of the cutest images but 2 pigs in love..... just doesn't get sweeter than that!
I decided to mask off each pig and stamp them separately to create my little windows and then stamp the whole image. I imagine them flirting with each other and then coming together for that first kiss. My papers today are from the American Crafts "Loves Me Not" 6x6 collection. I made little circle frames from my Ai Double Stitched circle dies. It's hard to see but the "Xo" paper is popped up with foam tape so that the images are sunken down inside the frame. I took the HH "Hogs and Kisses" sentiment and cut it apart so that it could fit inside my Stitched Heart die cut. A double loop bow, heart gem and some Doodlebug Tiny Heart Sprinkles finish everything off!
My decorated inside along with the HH "Always and Forever" sentiment.
Copics Used:
R00, R01, R02, R20, R21, R22, R24
N5, N6, N7, W3, W5, YG23
