Penguin Shaker Tags!

Happy Monday Friends.
Today I'm playing with one of the new stamps from 
the "Winter Joy November Release". Just the perfect penguin image to created some shaker tags!

This cutie is "Penguin Earmuffs" from High Hopes Stamps 

To begin I stamped these images with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with alcohol markers. Fussy cut every single image and used C7 copic around the edges. To embellish those penguins I add Diamond stickles in his earmuffs and used a white pen to give interest. 

Now to create the shaker tag. I used my Spellbinder circles, acetate window, 3D foam tape and put various sequins. The pattern paper are from my stash. 
For finishing touches used red/black plaid ribbon and tied a bow with some lime green string. 

That's all for today hope you have enjoyed today's post.

Winter bird

Happy Sunday!

Only 15 days till Christmas, so if you're looking for a quick and fun Christmas card to make, here's one for you! It's Bluebirdy from the latest release.

I used only 1 sheet of 6"x 6" dessinpaper and cut them into strokes that fits the card.. The sentiment came from the same paperpad (but different sheet as the background). 
I've added some leaves and flowers from Wild Orchid Flowers. I also added some foam tape on the image for some depth.
Copics I've used:

Merry Christmas, Eh?

Happy Friday to my High Hopes Fans!

I am sharing a fun High Hopes Christmas Card that I made with one of the older images from High Hopes.

This is Joey Snowy.
He reminds me so much of Frosty the snowman with his happy face!

I colored him with Prisma Pencils (spring green, cardinal red, black, orange)
I used B000 copic marker to outline him.
I created the snow with white Puffy Paint and the glittery stickers are Jollees.

The paper is from my favorite go to pack of Christmas paper by The Paper Studio.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Ice Skating Oops!

A couple weeks ago I attend my first ever weekend retreat with One Crazy Stamper. I had way too much fun, lots of laughs and well......you know ..what happens at the retreat, stays at the retreat!

Our welcome package included some 12 x 12 paper, ribbon, chipboard and a sketch and a challenge should we choose to accept it. Create a card or layout with the patterned paper in the kit but we could make it our own. 

I decided Oops Oliver was the perfect stamp to match the paper in pack. I added a fun sentiment I had taken with me. I coloured him up, added silver gel pen to his skate blades and cut him out with a stitched oval die. Some silver ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card. 
I didn't win the challenge - so many talented ladies played along - but I had way too much fun making this card!

Winter Kitty

Howdy - MichelleO here today and I am showing off a new image at High Hopes Stamps - how can you not fall in love with a Winter Kitty in a hat and scarf?

I just love this image! Matches up well with the Winter Puppy I used a few days back. I colored with my Copics (colors below) and then used LOTS of Viva Decor Sparkle pen. Has so much bling to it! My papers are from My Minds Eye Laundry Line collection. I love using non traditional colors with Christmas cards! So refreshing. And these papers have a glitter to them as well... love that! I sewed the layers down with a zig zag stitch along with some Core'dinations card stock. I punched out a EK Success tag punch and layered the sentiment "Meowy Christmas!" from High Hopes... such a perfect sentiment!!!

Copic colors used -
