Puppy Love

Howdy - MichelleO here today and today I have a little "Puppy Love

Aren't they a cute pair? I colored with my Copics (colors below) and then she was just screaming to have a polka-dot dress so I dotted her up with Nuvo white dots. I found papers from Paper Studios that I matched up with a grey card stock base. I sewed all the layers down. Then pulled out some older paper punches. Extra Large Martha Stewart Leaves and then EK Success shape for my sentiment "Friends Furr Ever!"  Perfect for this girl and her doggie! Then I added some Mulberry roses. Sweet image don't you think?

Hannah's Heart!

Happy Tuesday HH 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
Hearts: YR00, YR01, YR02
Ground & Outline: W1, BG000, BG00

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!

Used some left over pattern paper and die some small clouds with Impression Obsession die #068-A  Now for embellishment I added sequins, pink Nuvo drops, diamond stickles and my white pen.

Swinging Birthday

We had an unexpected snow event last week where I live and another that is heading towards us for Tuesday (two days ago) so my thoughts have been turning towards Spring, sun and warmth. 
Every crafter I know never has enough Birthday cards in their stash and I am no different so this week I created a CAS style, clear front card to add to my stash. 

After colouring this sweet stamp with alcohol markers, I hand fussy cut her leaving a thin white line. I set her aside and cut my card base. The sentiment I used is one sentiment but I masked off the first line and stamped it using my trusty Misti. Next I placed my cloud die and ran it through my Big Kick. I cut my blue sky background and a piece of embossable window plastic and added clouds to both using an embossing folder. I cut a plain white strip of cardstock for the bottom, masked my sentiment and stamped it. 
A matching gingham ribbon and some enamel dots finish off my card.
