Springtime Joy!

Hi HH & OCS Followers!
Today I wanted to share a cute and fun card with you! This is the adorable High Hopes "Hoppy Froggy Flower", and he's got a flower just for you!
I coloured my frog with my Copic Markers and then using a terry washcloth and Copic Blending Solution, dabbed at the image to create some texture. I had an extra background from my "Shadow Box Card" post and it came in handy for this card. I stamped the HH "Springtime Joy" sentiment directly on the cloud background.  I added some Stickles to the "warts" on the frog and the flower middle for a fun  look! And doesn't he look adorable with his little "goggly eyes?!!
I decided to mount my fussy cut image on an action wobble for an interactive fun element!
Click play to see the wobble in action.
Copics Used:
Froggy: G28, G46, YG17, YG21, YG23
Flower: RV25, RV29, Y32, Y35, G24, G28

Happy Stamping!

Bloomin' Border!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
I'm popping in today to share another "Spring Themed" card! I'm so happy the weather is better (I hate Winter) and I can't wait to see all the pretty flowers popping up in the gardens! I am using the HH "DH Bloomin' Border". I love this stamp because you can colour flowers any shade you want!
I took a pre-made 6.5x5 card and using my Spellbinders Label 28 die, made a shaped base by just slightly having one edge of my die off the card before I ran it through my die cut. Then cut matching layers using the same die and some Designer papers from MFT. I nice big bow and some PPP clear droplets finish off my card!
Here you can see the added dimension to my card by popping each layer up with foam squares. I also didn't stamp a sentiment on the inside. I thought I'd wait until I have an occasion to use it. This card is perfect for a sympathy, thinking of you or just because card.
Copics Used:
BV01, BV02, BV04
Y13, Y15, Y18

Happy Saturday DDS Fans!
It's my turn to today post over on the Digi Doodle Studios Facebook Page. This digital stamp is called "Kenzie & Kona Lap Dog"! Isn't Kenzie adorable? And that sweet Kona is lapping up all the attention Kenzie is giving her!
Todays paper is from the new Lawn Fawn Spring Fling 6x6 collection.  I made a little cloud background using Distress Oxide Ink with Worn Lipstick and a MFT Cloud Stencil. The flowers and her hair ribbon have Crystal Stickles on them for a bit of glimmer.
I popped Kenzie & Kona up to look like they are setting on the fence enjoying the day.
I used some of the paper scraps to decorate the inside and added a sentiment from the Digi Doodles "Cutie Paws" digital collection. You get 10 pet sentiments in the download!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter Weekend Everyone!
I'm just popping in to share an Easter card that I made for my Hubby's top clients! I coloured 60 of these adorable images from Gerda Steiner Designs and made them into cards. This is the absolutely adorable "Peeking Easter Friends" stamp set.
I am using paper from the Echo Park "Easter Wishes" collection. I coloured up all of the 60 images (300 in total lol) with my Copic Markers and then fussy cut them all out using my Brother Cut N Scan. My design is simple as I had so many cards to put together.
The inside sentiment is also form the "Peeking Easter Friends" stamp set.

Copics Used:
Bunny: C0, C1, R01
Chick: Y21, Y23, YR04, YR07
Eggs: YG63, RV06, Y13, BG34

I entered this card into the Gerda Steiner Share Your Design Challenge for April.

Happy Easter weekend to all!

Spring Is In the Air!

Happy Tuesday HH & OCS Peeps!
"Spring Is In the Air" and boy do I wish I could get into the garden like the High Hopes "Gardener Bunny"! We moved into a new development last June and we still don't have our grass or any flower beds yet. I know it's a bit early here in Ontario, but I sure would like to play in the garden!
You could certainly use "Gardener Bunny" for an Easter card as well. I chose to use papers from the Doodlebug "Hoppy Easter" 6x6 collection. I added lots of paper layers and tilted some of them for a different look. Sine I love my Copic Markers, that is what I used to colour my image.
I always like to add dimension to my cards. I like to pop ups the different layers with foam squares. I think it makes everything stand out better!
Copics Used:
Bunny: C00. C0. C1, C3, R01
Outfit: V22, V25, V28, Y15, Y18, RV17, RV19
Carrots: G28, G46, YG17, YG23 / YR04, YR07, YR09

Sweet Dreams!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
This month over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper blogs, the Designs Teams will be inspiring you with "Thoughts of Spring" themed cards. When I saw this stamp called "Sweet Dreams",  I just knew it was perfect for the theme! After what seemed like a long Winter, I want to be this cute ant catching some "rays" in a hammock! Maybe he'll switch places with me LOL!
I decided to make a "Window Surprise" card today. I love how you have a small peak of the image but when you open the card you get a "surprise" with the whole image. I chose paper from the Echo Park Spring Fling 6x6 pad. The fun patterns and colours just are perfect for a Spring card. After I glued my paper layers together I ran it through my die cut machine to cut out the heart shape. Using 2 different heart sizes I made a little heart frame. A double bow and some enamel dots finish the front of my card.
Here you get an idea of the window. The sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "One of Those Days".
On the inside is the cute "surprise" of the full coloured image. I stamped the HH "Hang In There" directly onto the square die cut with my image. The flower and flip flop both have glitter pen added to them.
Copics Used:
Greens: G28, G46, YG17, YG23, YG21
Red: R20, R21, R22, R2Yellow: Y15, Y18

Hi DDS Fans!
The theme this month over on the Digi Doodle Studios Challenge Blog is "Anything Goes". I decided since it's Spring and that always reminds me of babies that I would make a "Baby Themed" card to have in my stash. Meet "Hadley Hippo" from the Digi Doodle Studios,  "Bundle Of Joy" digital stamp collection.
I am using papers today from the Echo Park "Hello Baby, It's  Girl" 6x6 collection. I printed my image, coloured it and cut it out with my Brother Cut N Scan machine. I inked all the edges of my papers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink for some added dimension. Some glitter pen and a few die cut clouds finish off my card. The glitter never shows up in photos for me but true e it's there lol.
My sentiments today are from the Digi Doodle "Bundle of Joy" digital sentiment collection. You get 18 sentiments in the collection, what a great value! I added the "Congratulations" to the banner before I printed my image. Here you can also see the added dimension by popping the image and sentiment up with foam squares.
Copics Used:
Hadley: C0, C1, C3, R01
Clouds: RV91, RV93, RV95
Outfit: BG53, BG57, R21, R22
Balloons: R20, R21, R22/ Y13, Y15, Y18/ BG53, BG57

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to enter our Monthly "Anything Goes Challenge". There is also a Facebook Group that has a ton inspiration using Digi Doodle images!

Take Two!

Howdy HH & OCS Fans!
Oh My Gosh, how cute is this little Gopher?!!! I couldn't resist and had to make one more card from the new  High Hopes "Get Well" collection! Meet "Gopher Tea Nurse". This adorable nurse is sure to brighten your day!
This is my first time trying alcohol inks and making backgrounds. I love the way my background turned out and the marbleizing texture the inks created! I coloured my image to match and cut it and the background layer out with my Brother Cut N Scan. I popped my image and "Take Two" sentiment  up with some foam tape for added dimension. A few Studio Katia sequins finish off my card.
On the inside of my card I used the HH "Spirits A Lift" sentiment.
Copics Used:
Gopher: E33, E35, E37, E39, E29, R20, R22
