Happy 150th Canada!

Wow Canada is turning 150 years young!! I'm actually what they refer to as a "Centennial baby"  being born in the year Canada turned 100! I'm sure there will be lots of special events on the July 1st long weekend! Off to the Cottage for me and of course we'll be taking in the fireworks! I decided to make a birthday card for Canada!
I made the card base from a Silhouette file and added the High Hopes "Team Canada" stamp in the middle. Of course I had to add the numbers "150" and the Happy is part of the "Happy Birthday Block" sentiment. I love that this image has all our most popular "Canadian animals included on it! Although our Canadian Flag doesn't have glitter, being the girl I am I just couldn't leave it alone and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the red parts.
I used the "Happy Birthday Block" sentiment again on the inside.
Copics Used:
Flag: R24, R27, R29, C1
Beaver: E04, E08, E09, E17, E18

Wooden Gate!

Hi Ai Fans!
Today I am sharing with you a few cards I made using the Art Impressions Watercolor Mini's and Watercolor 2017 sets! I had some time to practice at the Cottage recently and here's 3 of my many attempts LOL!
I used quite a variety of stamps to get this look:
I love that with the Watercolor stamp sets you can mix and match different stamps to get a truly unique look each time!
It's easy to use the stamps..... just colour with your watercolour marker directly in your stamp and add to your paper. Then taking a damp brush soften the lines for that watercolour look.
Tombow Markers Used:
249, 451, 528, 725, 098, 288
Marvy LePlume:
12, 86

Happy Stamping!

Hannah's Heart!

Hi High Hopes Fans!
The theme for June over on the High Hopes Blog is "Anything Goes"! This sweet girl hasn't seen the light of day for awhile and I thought it was high time to ink her up and have some fun! Meet "Hannah's Heart"! This little sweetheart is so versatile! Think love, friendship, Valentine's Day, Get well or even for the special little girl!
For this card I decided to use paper from the Carta Bella's Flora No 1 collection! I love all the white space and the scallop stitched border on this card. I added a bit of lilac twine and some tickles for a touch of bling.
On the inside I cut one of the little cards out of the paper collection and added the "Sending Smiles" sentiment.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E43, E44, E47, E49
Dress: RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99
Hearts: R32, R35, R37
