New Friends!

Happy Tuesday!
Tuesday means it's my turn to post over at High Hopes Stamps. This is another one of the new images called "Buddy Makes A Friend" from the Live, Laugh, Love collection! Buddy is absolutely adorable as he sits there making a new friend with the little blue bird.
I'm following along with the January Sketch using papers from the Doodlebug Hello Sunshine 6x6 collection. I love the fun bright colours and added a bit of Stickles to all the flower middles.
On the inside I used the new sentiment called "You Are Loved".
Copics Used:
Buddy: C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, R20
Bird: BG02, BG05, BG09
Flowers: RV06, RV09/ YR16, YR18/ Y17, Y19

Welcome Baby Boy!

Good Morning!
Just popping in to share with you a card I made for the arrival of a new Baby Boy! I am using the High Hopes Stamp called "Swaddled Baby Boy".
I love using my Silhouette machine and Sketch pens to create a customized "birth detail" aspect to my card. I think it makes for a nice keepsake! I'm using papers from my stash and decided to paper piece the baby's blanket!. A few YNS Gumdrops and some ribbon finishes everything off.
I'm using the HH sentiment called "Ten Little Phase" on the decorated inside of my card.
Copics Used:
E00, E11, E21, R20
E43, E44
Outline: B000

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!

Art Deco Pop Ups

Hi Ai Fans!
You just have to love these Pop Ups from Art Impressions! When you need a quick and easy card but still want something fun, this should be your go to! The Pop Up sets are so easy to use! They come with 2 different scenes and you get 2 of each one! All you have to do is punch them out and assemble your card! This set is called "Ai Deco set 4".

The images even come labelled so you know what image to layer first. Add a few from dots between the decoupage layers and all that is left to do is add some decorations if you want to!
See the layers? So fun and love the dimension!
Happy Stamping!

A New Technique!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the Second Week of the "Card Resolution" Challenge over at Art Impressions. We want to see you try a new technique for 2017. I decided to try a technique called "no line colouring". I'm using the "Incredibowl set" and coloured it up two ways so you could see the difference.
This is my absolute first time trying this.... it's not perfect but I'm happy with how it turned out! I stamped the image with SSS Hybrid Ink in Natural, which is a really light colour. Then I went ahead and coloured the image as usual with my Copic Markers. Because the ink colour is light the ink lines "disappear" when you colour it!
A little bit of Doodlebug twine and some bowling pins from the "Spare Me" set, finish off my simple design.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20, RV09
Hair: E43, E44, E47
Top: RV04, RV06, RV09, C1
Pants: C00, C0, C1
Bowling Ball: C5, C6, C7

I hope that you will join us in this Challenge and try something new!
