Penguin Family!

Howdy and Happy Boxing Day!
Just popping in quick before I battle the shopping deals to share this cute Winter themed card with you! This is the adorable "Penguin Family Igloo" from High Hopes Stamps!
Today's paper is just from my stash, trying to use up some of my bits and pieces but they all went together perfectly! I used Liquid Appliqué and Crystal stickles for a bit of dimension. And of course had to use my favourite embellishment.... enamel dots! 
On the decorated inside I used the High Hopes sentiment called "Have An Ice Day".

Day 10 of the 12 Days of Christmas!

Hi DDS Fans!
It's day 3 of the the 12 Days of Christmas over at Digi Doodle Studios! Dina has a fabulous sale going on right now!

Today I want to share a cute little tree ornament I made using the Digi Doodle Studios "Ella Eve Home For the Holidays" digital stamp! The great thing with digital stamps is that you can size them to whatever your project requires. By shrinking my image I could fit Ella onto this 3.75" cardboard ornament.
I inked all the edges of my digital papers form the DDS "Christmas Eve Digital Background papers" with Distress ink in Vintage Photo. I added Some Stampendous Spoonful of Snow and melted it with my heat gun for a glittery snow effect.
On the back side of the ornament I added a sentiment from the DDS"Season of Cheer Christmas Holiday" set. Some Liquid Appliqué for snow and a couple die cuts finish it off.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: Y11, Y21, E53, E55
Greens: G82, G85, G99
Browns: E42, E43, E44, E47, E49

This is my last post before the Holidays so I want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas, a Happy Holiday Season and all the best for the New Year and in 2018!

Sympathy Thoughts!

It's never easy loosing a pet as they become such an important part of our Families! My Groomer recently had to put her dog down and I made her a Sympathy card.
This stamp is from Creative Visions and is called "Gone to Heaven". I thought papers from the Doodlebug "Puppy Love" was perfect to go with my card theme. Some twine and a wooden embellishment inked with Distress Ink finish off my card.
The "Gone to Heaven" set comes with the image and 3 sentiments.

I couldn't decide what to use so I thought "hey lets do a little scene"! I made a Pop Up Box card and added my coloured images to make this scene! I am using paper from the Echo Park "I Love My Family" 6x6 collections and the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop Up Die.
After colouring muy inanes I cut them out with My Brother Cut N Scan and added them to the box card.
From the top view you can see I made a little road with some black paper and a white gel pen so it looks like they are driving down the highway.

Gingerbread Man Jack!

Today I am sharing with you a card I made using one of the new Digital Images from the "Gingerbread Kids" release over at Digi Doodle Studios! This is the adorable "Jacks Ginger Cookie Baker.
I decided to use a file from the Silhouette Store and my Cameo to make my card base and when I saw this "Gingerbread Man Trifold" I knew it would be perfect! I used papers from the Doodlebug "Milk & Cookies" 6x6 collection.
On the inside you see the main image and a sentiment from the DDS "A Season OF Cheer Christmas Holiday" digital sentiments. On the opposite side I added a blank piece of paper so that you can use that part to sign the cad.
This is what the cards look like when they are closed.
My first attempt at the Trifold card made quite a small card, so I decided to use it for a matching Gift Tag. Then I expanded the file to create a more regular sized card to match.
Copics Used:
E33, E34, E35, E37, R22, R24, R27
YG21, YG23, RV04, RV06, RV09
