Snowflake Gift

I love snowmen! so when I saw the Snowman Flakes 4 U stamp in the new Winter Joy release I knew I wanted to make a card with him. I also fell in love with the colours of this paper and the result is a fun, winter themed card for a friend. 


 I coloured my stamp using alcohol markers and cut it out with a new to me die with scallops and stitches. It is hard to see in the photo but the "gift" snowflakes are coloured with a Spectrum Sparkle pen - fun right?! After colouring the trees, I cut a piece of sponge and used it add some white acrylic paint to add some "snow". Ribbon, some Nuvo drops and a fun silver snowflake charm are the finishing touches. Now...I wonder which of my friends would like to find this in their mailbox........

HELLOOO....

Welcome OCS fans;

Have you ever wondered what is going through a baby's or even a cat or dog's mind when they see their reflection for the first time.  I know my children and pets had quite a time playing when they saw their reflections.

For today's card I have used Snowy Reflection and I'm sure that he doesn't realize that it is his reflection he is seeing.  I used copics to colour the image.  Nuvo's Fresh Snowfall Glitter Accents was added to the trees.


Supplies used:
Don't forget to ink up your favourite stamp and come and play along in this month's Christmas/Winter Challenge.  We can't wait to see what you create. 

For any supplies that you might want or need and don't forget about the wish list to Santa, check out Lora's One Crazy Stamper Store for some great products.

Ice Skating Oops!

A couple weeks ago I attend my first ever weekend retreat with One Crazy Stamper. I had way too much fun, lots of laughs and well......you know ..what happens at the retreat, stays at the retreat!

Our welcome package included some 12 x 12 paper, ribbon, chipboard and a sketch and a challenge should we choose to accept it. Create a card or layout with the patterned paper in the kit but we could make it our own. 




I decided Oops Oliver was the perfect stamp to match the paper in pack. I added a fun sentiment I had taken with me. I coloured him up, added silver gel pen to his skate blades and cut him out with a stitched oval die. Some silver ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card. 
I didn't win the challenge - so many talented ladies played along - but I had way too much fun making this card!

Stamp: Oops Oliver Bear - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment:Days Like This - High Hopes Rubber Stamps

Adorable Penguins!

Hi OCS Fans!
I've been wanting to try this style of "Flex or bendy" card for a while now and when I saw the Penguins from the High Hopes "Winter Joy" release I just knew they would work perfectly! Penguins hold a special place in my heart as they were my Grandma's favourites and they always make me think of her!

I found the card base file in the Silhouette store and used my Cameo to create the base. Then I stamped and coloured the "Happy PenguinPenguin Earmuff and Chilly Penguin" with my Copic Markers. After cutting them out with my Cameo, I popped them up with foam squares and added them to my little scene!

Here you can see how the cards works. You just tuck the tabs into place and it creates that "bend" in your card. You can still mail it as it will be flat when the tabs aren't tucked in!
Copics Used:
C1, C5, C6, C8, YR04, YR09, YR23, YR27
BG13, BG18, BG34, R00, R01, R81, R83, R85, R89

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my card!

Happy Stamping!

Chilly Penguin

I hope you have had a chance to take a look at the new Winter Joy release. It is full of super cute snowmen, dog, cat and some cute chubby penguins to name a few. 

This week given our blasts of winter we've had, I chose to play with Chilly Penguin. I kinda feel like him - chilly! and all I can say is Brrrr!




After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and paper piecing his scarf, I cut this cutie out with a classic circle die. i used my circle cutter to cut a matching piece of cardstock to go behind him. I created my snowy scene by cutting out some stitched hills and trees and added some glittery snow to them. All of this was mounted on an easel style base and Bo Bunny patterned paper. I stamped and coloured my sentiment and added some glitter snow to that too. The purple ink turned it purple - at first I was upset about this - now I think it matches perfectly. One of those happy accidents as they say. Some ribbon and sparkly purple gumdrops finish off my card. 


Card Recipe 
Stamp: Chilly Penguin - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: BRR - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Altitude Collection - Bo Bunny
Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, Tree die - Memory Box, Double Stitched Hills die - Your Next Stamp, Glitter Snow - Aleene's, ribbon - Recollections, Fresh Snowfall Nuvo Glitter Dots (hat), Sparkly Purple Gumdrops - Your Next Stamp
