Tropical Santa!

Hello 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
Greens: FY61, FY62
Chair: E43, E44, E47, Y32, Y35, Y38
R24, R29, BG72, BG75, FY1
Shadow, Outline: W1, B00

Happy Stamping!

Spring is in the Air, Wreath

 Hi there and happy Saturday.  I'm back to share a little card made with ....
I created a  twig style wreath and set the Spring image inside.  Used a burlap style ribbon 
with a fun carrot print and some tiny yellow flowers too. The image is coloured with Copic Markers and the background paper has a rustic wood look which I though went well with the image. 
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.

Dress For Success

Did anyone else ever like to play dress up as a child? I got the chance to do that when I went over to my friend's places for sleep overs. It was way too much fun to pull out the fancy dresses and high heeled shoes from the special toy box they were kept in.

After colouring this cutie with alcohol markers, I added some Stickles to her boa and pearls for a little sparkle. I set it aside to dry and cut and assembled my patterned paper layers. Some matching glittery ribbon and Nuvo gumdrops finish off my card.

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

Happy Anniversary

At the end of April my parents celebrated their 50th Anniversary. My siblings and I planned lots of surprises for them throughout the day including pink flamingos in their front yard! They have received their card so I can share it now <smile>

One of my tasks was to create their card. I wanted to include flowers and one of Mom's favourite colours - purple. I also wanted to include something for my Dad which is where the wood comes in. Since his retirement he has been dabbling in wood working so the wood paper is perfect to include him.  

The inside included a special note from all their "Kids" which they loved. 



I wanted to use the flowers on the With Deepest Sympathy stamp but the sentiment didn't fit. I grabbed my post it notes and strategically masked off the sentiment and stamped the flowers. The sentiment was another test in masking and placement as it is actually a long sentiment not stacked like I have done it. 
I sooo love my Misti!

After holding my breath and stamping, I coloured the flowers with alcohol markers and cut it out. I added some stickles to not only the balls around the flowers but also in some of the white space around the stamp.
Some wood paper in the background, inked edges and some twine finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: With Deepest Sympathy -  High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Happy Aniversary - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Sage and Grace - Kaisercraft

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, London Fog ink - Memento, Crystal Stickles, twine - American Crafts 

Spectrum Noir Markers: LV1 PL2 PL4 CG1 DG2 DG4 CT1 AB1 IG1

Everything grows with love

Hello and Happy Saturday!
I'm back to share a little floral number using ....
This card has been on my mind for awhile .  I started off by cutting up my deepest sympathy stamp. I very carefully cut around the sentiment and created two stamps.  You can also tape off the sentiment while inking to preserve the stamp.  
I stamped a square piece of paper multiple times  to give a garden look to the card. Then stamped a bunch of flowers on some white cardstock and fussy cutting them.
I inked up the fussy flowers and once my background was coloured up with Copic Markers, distress inks and stamped sentiment the flowers were glued into place. 
I used an old sewing machine for my sewing stitches, added twine to my base  and pop dotted my panel into place.

Hang In There!

Hi OCS Fans!
Just popping int today to share a card I made with a stamp from High Hopes called "GiGi"! Adorable GiGi is from an older collection called "Divas". This is my favourite Diva from the collection!! I think it's her hair that I love the most! I always secretly wanted curly hair LOL!
What's great about this stamp is that you can use her for so many different occasions!  Today I am using GiGi for a card of encouragement. My paper is from the American Crafts Welcome Spring 6x6 collection. No glitter anywhere this time, (what you say?!!!) just a few enamel dots finish off my design.
I am using the HH Sentiment called "Hang In There" on the inside. I just masked off part of it to make it fit inside my little circle.
