Catching Z's!

Hello!
I'm popping in to share a masculine themed card using the Art Impressions "Catching Z's" stamp set. It's always great to have a few masculine cards on hand and this one is perfect for some of the men that I know!
I decided to use paper from the older Echo Park Reflections Fall 6x6 collection. After I coloured my image with Copic Sketch markers I used my Brother Cut N Scan to "fussy" cut around my guy! Then using foam tape I popped him up against my card design. I love using foam tape or squares as it really helps to add dimension to your card.
The sentiment comes with the set and cracks me up every time I read it! Sometimes I wonder if there is more "sleeping" going on then actual fishing when the guys are out in the boat LOL.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Yellows: Y23, Y26, Y28
Greens: YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99
Tackle box: E17, E18, E19
Chair: R24, R29, silver Wink of Stella

You're So Cool!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's the second week of the Art Impressions Challenge called "Playing Dress Up" and the release of the new Girlfriend stamps. I am playing with the "Sunny Shades" set today!
 I thought these Gals looked so cool in all their fancy shades! A lightbulb went off in my head and I decided to try to make my own word card base. I used my Silhouette Cameo and created the word cool and then made it into a card base. It turned out better than I imagined! Gotta love when something you envision comes to life!
This card uses paper from my stash, I'm not even sure of the name. I cut out my stamped image with my Brother Cut N Scan and then popped it up with foam tape. I also added some Crystal Stickles to each of the girls for some added "cool" sparkle! This card is a bit on the large size, measuring 8" x 4.5".
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21 / E00, E21, E95 / E11, E33, E51/ R20, RV17
Hair: Y21, YR24, E08 / E42, E44, E47, E49 / C3, C6, C8 / E51, Y23, Y26

Gemma!

Hi HH & OCS Fans!
I've got one more of the High Hopes Stamps adorable "Divas" to share with you today! This is the super cute "Gemma"! When I started to design this card, I just pictured her in Paris for some reason.... enjoying life and painting until her little hearts content!
So since "Gemma" is in "Paris", I knew the Paris Girl collection from Carta Bella was perfect for her! I've been hoarding this collection but thought Gemma was deserving LOL. I added some Crystal Stickles to her hair band, flower and painted hearts. The MFT Eiffel Tower die was the perfect addition to my themed card!
On the decorated inside I added the HH Sentiment called "You Make Me Smile".
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E74, E77, E79
Pinks: R81, R83, R85
Hearts and paint: RV10, RV11
Easel: E43, E44, E47
Grey: C1, C2, C4, black gel pen polka dots

Take some time to enjoy life just like Gemma is!

Mom!

Happy Mother's Day!
I told you I'd be back with more of these cute HummingBirds from Pretty Pink Posh! I thought this would be perfect for my Mom for Mother's Day! Not only does my Mom love Hummingbirds but purple is her favourite colour!
 I made 3 flowers using s Silhouette Cut file and added them to my card. I wanted to keep a consistent colour theme so I coloured my birds in the same purple tones as the flowers. I used a Embossing folder to create the white background of this Eclipse card. Some glitter on their heads add a pretty touch.
Here you can see the different dimensions on my card.

Copics Used:
BV01, BV02, BV04, BV08

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there today! You are all amazing!

Udderly Fantastic set!

Hello Ai Fans!
I've got a friend who loves anything "Cow". When I saw this set I knew it would be perfect to make a Birthday card for her! This is the Art Impressions "Udderly Fantastic" set and comes with 3 images and 8 sentiments! Wow, think of all the variations you can make with it!
While I was creating with this set I decided to make  2 sets of 3 cards. I'm going to give one set to my friend that she can use to give out and the extra cards, I will add to my stash. 
All six of my cards were created using paper from the Echo Park "Happy Birthday" Girl 6x6 collection.
I tried to "tie" them together with the matching papers and using an Oval Zig Zag die from MFT. 

One of the designs has these cute cows popped up on a mini action wobble for a bit of fun!
I used one of the 8 sentiments from the set on the decorated inside of my cards.


Copics Used:
Cows: C5, C7, C9/ E11, E13, E15, E17/ R01, R00

Today's card is all about coffee!! From the adorable High Hopes Stamp called "Ginger" to the Coffee shaped gift card holder!
I used my Silhouette machine and cut the Coffee Gift Card base and decorated it with Designer papers. After I stamped and coloured my image, I used my Brother Cut N Scan to cut out the image and add a outline with pink cardstock. I also added some Crystal Stickles to various parts of "Ginger" for some added interest!
O course here in Canada, Tim Horton's is often the Coffee Shop of choice and I know my friend will love that she can go and have some coffee and treats on me!
I added the "Thank You For Being A Friend" sentiment on the inside.

Sound the Alarm!

Hi!
Today is my Dad's Birthday and to celebrate I made him this card! My Dad was a Firefighter so this set from Your Next Stamp was a perfect choice to use on his card. I actually won this "Fire Up the Fun" set and it couldn't be more perfect for me!
Today I am using paper from the Photoplay Mad 4 Plaid and Echo Park Dots and Stripes. I stamped the Fireman and then masked him off to stamp the Fire Truck in the background. I added some Silver Wink of Stella to the grey parts, red enamel dots and Glossy Accents to the water spray.
I added the adorable Dalmation on the inside along with a sentiment.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E21, E95, R20
Hair: E55, E57

Reds: R24, R27, R29
