Snowman Sled!

Hello HH & OCS Friends!
I hope this post finds you all well and staying warm! Today I am sharing with you "Snowman Sled" from the new High Hopes release called "Woodsy Christmas".
I decided to go with a black and red theme on today's card. I'm trying to use up some of the papers from my "scrap bin", and I found these that go perfect with my theme!
I stamped and coloured my image with my Copic Markers. I used my Brother Cut N Scan to cut out the image and make a red layer for behind. I added some white gel pen to the little berries and some Spectrum Noir Glitter pen to the sweet bird and the heart. It's hard to see but for all the decorations on the sled I used a red gel pen. It's a simple layout design today to show case "Snowman Sled".
Copics Used:
N4, N5, N6, N7, N8
R35, R37, R39
YG23, YG25, C1, YR04, YR07

Happy Stamping!

Wasn't Me Brutus

Anyone else have two pets that blame each other for their shenanigans? 
I had a kitten first and then a puppy. Both of the had their moments with wreaking havoc on my house. They would blame each other and look all innocent when something went wrong. Little did they know, as their personalities came out it was pretty easy to tell who the trouble maker was! 

It is these fun memories that inspired this fun Christmas card, coloured with Prismacolor pencils. 



After some creative masking (the tree stamp has a cat and mouse on it) and stamping, I coloured my stamps with Prismacolour pencils. Brutus is stamped  hand fussy cut and glued down to create my scene.  I cut it out using a notched rectangles die. I set it aside and chose some fun pet themed Christmas patterned paper. Some ribbon, a gold bell and some enamel dots finish off my card.

Woodland Noel

How fun are these woodland friends all hanging out in a stocking?!!
When I saw this stamp I knew I wanted to colour it up in some earthy tones and find a way to make it look like these cute friends are hanging from a tree branch. 
What was in my head didn't work out and this card went totally sideways from "the plan" but I am happy with the end result. 

Meet "Woodland Stocking" from the new Woodsy Christmas release!



After colouring these cuties with alcohol markers, I cut it out using an oval die. I chose some matching wood and subtle snowflake paper for my background. The stamp was hand fussy cut leaving a thin white border. Next I cut some matching branches for the top of my oval. I chose not to add a sentiment because I thought the Noel on the stocking was perfect. I added some clear sparkle pen to each letter for a bit of bling. A glitter ribbon bow and enamel dots finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Woodland Stocking - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Winter Wonderland - Simple Stories  

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, Clear Spectrum Sparkle pen, Galena ribbon, foam pop dots - Forever In Time, mini greens die - Tim Holtz, enamel dots - Gina Marie Designs, Oval die - Gina Marie Designs

Gofer Christmas Greetings

Who doesn't love an adorable little gopher wishing you a very Sparkly Christmas!!!  I just had to color up this cutie from High Hopes Rubber Stamps newest release Woodsy Christmas.


This is Christmas Gofer that I colored with Copic markers.  After fussy cutting the image I added sparkle with touches of a silver glitter pen, white highlights with a Sakura glaze pen, 3D berries made with white and red pearl pens, snow with Liquid Applique, some fun flock on the hat, and then to finish off the whole image I sprayed it with Shimmer Spritz (sure wish the glitter showed on this photo). 

The sentiment is also from High Hopes Rubber stamps and is available here.  A red snowflake cut using an older Memory Box die from my stash finishes off the card front.  

Card Recipe - E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, 110, RV11, RV34, R85, BG02, BG07, BG09, R08, R29, R37, G07,, YG67, G29

Bear!

Hello OCS Fans!
I'm popping in today to share with you a card I made using the new "Bear" stamp from the "Woodsy Christmas" release and an older image called "Package Packin' Penguin" from High Hopes Stamps!
I started by stamping my images, masking them off and then creating this background using some Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I splattered some white and black ink onto the background using a paintbrush. A couple spoonfuls of Stampendous Spoonful of Snow Embossing Powder gives these cuties some sparkly snow to walk on. I'll let you in on a little secret...... I messed up on my Bear. I had coloured it and then tried to add some texture with Copic Blending Solution and a rag. Lets just say it didn't work the best so I had to add little dots of Copic inks to try to fix it. I just couldn't throw it out after all my work on it. I hope it turned out okay for you guys.
Copics Used:
Bear: N1, N3, N5, N6, N7, N9/ R20
Penguin: C5, C6, C7/ YR04, YR07, YR09

Winter Stroll

I have a confession to make. Winter really isn't my favourite time of year. There are some beautiful days though - you know the ones... the sun is glistening off the snow, little to no wind, not too cold and a fresh blanket of snow. 
I love to take my dog for a long walk on this type of day! He loves to bury his nose in the snow and run!!

This "perfect" winter day was the inspiration for this weeks card. I mean why wouldn't a bear want to take a stroll in the woods with mountains in the background on a beautiful winter day right?! 




I started today's card by stamping one evergreen tree, masking it off and stamping some of the mountains. I stamped an extra tree and the bear and coloured everything with alcohol markers and fussy cut them. "Snow" was added to the sky with a white gel pen.
 I cut my patterned paper to the sizes I needed and cut the scene was cut with a stitched rectangle die. I added a bit of extra white card stock to the bottom of it for more room. 
Next, I took a hills die and cut out thin strips of card stock and added them to my scene to act as snow drifts. I added the second tree and the bear and stamped my sentiment. Some twine and gumdrops finish off my card. 

At the very end, once everything was glued down I held my breath, grabbed a paint brush and added some glitter snow to the mountain tops and trees.

Stamp: BearMountainsWinter Evergreen - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
