One Of Those Days!

Hi Ai Fans!
Today I am sharing with you "Wallowing Pig" from the Zoo collection over at Art Impressions. This poor little piggy has had a bad week by the looks of it and is enjoying wallowing in the pond.
This card came together quick with this simple layout and image. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the water for a bit of shimmer.
Perfect sentiment for this "Wallowing Pig" called "One Of Those Days".
Copics Used:
R00, R01, R02, B0000, B000, B01, C2

Hope you are had a better week than this piggy! Now onto a fabulous weekend!
Happy Stamping!

I'm popping in today to share another one of the adorable "Darling Divas" stamps that were just released the first of May! Meet "AnnaLee" and her cute little kitty! I am loving how fun and whimsical these girls are in this release! And don't even gutted me started on their hair.....pure cuteness LOL!
I thought the kitten paper from the Crate Paper Cute Girl" 6x6 collection matched AnnaLee perfectly! The "Hugs & Kisses"sentiment on the front is also from High Hopes Stamps. I coloured her with my Copic Markers and added white polka dots with my gel pen to her dress and bow for a fun touch! The stripes on her sleeves and legs have some Crystal Stickles added for a touch of bling!
Copics Used:
Skin: E000, E01, E31, R20, RV17 (lips)
Hair: Y21, YR23, YR24, YR27, E13
Dress: BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78
Stripes: RV13, RV14
Stool: E44, E47, E49
Kitty: T1, T3, T5

You still have time to play along in our current "Anything Goes Challenge"! You can find all the details

Happy Stamping!

Happy Friday Ai Fans!
Let me introduce you to "Scratch"! Scratch is the "Man" around the chicken coop in the Ai Bird Brains line of stamps! He's one super cool dude with those glasses and I'm sure the chickens all swoon over him LOL!
I stamped and cut Scratch out with my Silhouette machine and then coloured him with my Copic Markers. I am using paper from the MFT Fresh Gingham paper collection. I thought the Ai "Chicken Wire" background stamp was perfect to layer behind Scratch.
On the inside, I used a bit more of the designer paper to layer behind the "It's Been Ages" sentiment.
Copics Used:
R24, R27, R29, E07, E08, E09
YR16, YR18, YR21, YR24, YR27

If you haven't checked out the Bird Brains stamp line you have to head over to the online Ai Store and see all the cute and funny chicken themed stamps! You'll chuckle for sure!

Happy Stamping!

Dots & Stripes!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the 2nd week of the Ai Challenge called "Dots and Stripes" and the launch of the new Pop Cards!
These pop cards are the coolest idea ever!
Here's the front of my card! I had to explain to Hubby what "HB2U" meant.....Happy Birthday to you in short form LOL.  I am following along with the "Dot" part of the Challenge with this polka dot paper. I used my Silhouette Electronic cutting machine to cut out the letters and number for this card.
The whole idea behind the pop card is that your card folds flat but when you open it up the image inside "pops" up. I'm using the "Gator Pop Card set.". They are very easy to assemble but you do need to also have the Pop Card template die. The template is the part that you add all the layers of your card to. The Set comes with your images and dies to cut out everything you need to assemble your card.
Here you can see the layers that make up your 3D image.
I made a second version of this image. Instead of using the Gator as a Pop card I used the set to make a card with his head on an action wobble! There're likely tons of way to use these stamp sets that I haven't even thought of yet! My papers all are from Echo Park's Dino Friends 6x6 collection and go along with this Challenge theme perfectly!
Here you can see his head on an action wobble and is so cute when it shakes!

Copics Used:
