Love Birds

Happy Thursday everyone!

Today I'm sharing an adorable new image from High Hopes Rubber Stamps called Love Birds.  I wanted to do a little something that looked different so I colored this pair of little birds up on Kraft cardstock.  I used Copic's of course but I added a bunch of shading with my Prisma pencils as well.

I played along with our January OCS Challenge Sketch with a couple of my own modifications.  You can find the Challenge HERE

 This is the 2nd card I have done on Kraft and I have found that when using my Copics it is best to test the color first.  Some colors dry darker some much lighter than you might think.  So I started to create my own little index card system.  I will add to this each time I want to play with a new color combo.  I am using American Craft cardstock and that is what my index cards are made from.  Each brand of cardstock will react differently to the marker so it is a great idea to find a brand you like and work with that.  This is my index system, at least for now.

Copics I used for this card...
Heart Leaves - BG72, BG71 (I made this color with BG78 & BG72) with Peacock Blue Prisma
Scroll - BG72, BG10 with Aquamarine & Light Aqua Primsa
Left Bird - E97, E95, E93 with Pumpkin Orange Prisma
Right Bird - E41, E42, E43 with Light Umber Prisma
Shading around birds - Yellow Ochre Primsa
Background Shading - Light Aqua Prisma
You can't tell from the picture but I did add a bunch of sparkle to the scroll and leaves with Clear Wink of Stella.

If you are looking to grab this adorable image you can find it HERE at OCS or HERE at High Hopes.
Have a wonderful day!

Hugs & Kisses

I hope you are enjoying the design teams incredible makes with the new Live Love Laugh release from High Hopes! 

This week I got to play with "Betsy Loves Barney". I had a friend that grew up on a pig farm and we used to have to do the chores every day, twice a day.... and every once and awhile we had to clean out the pens.

Sorry, but I don't remember seeing any pigs in real life that are this cute!!!

I coloured my stamp with alcohol markers then cut it out using a stitched oval die. The background oval was cut out with my Cricut......I wasn't going to use it at first because technically it didn't fit properly. But, I kind of like the look of having some colour peaking out on the ends only for something different so I decided to use it. 
I added my image to patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket and MME. The sentiment was stamped on some matching cardstock and cut to size. Some corner dies, ribbon and gold heart brads finish off my card.

A Hundred Hearts......

Welcome back OCS Fans;

Another week has been and gone, and January is now half over.  Time does go by quickly.  For my post today, I have used another adorable image from the High Hopes "Live Love Laugh" release called "Leo Meets Lana".

For this card, I didn't follow the sketch at all.  I used the Lots of Love stickable stencil from BoBunny.  I inked the stencil with Angel Pink from Tsukineko Memento Dew Drop.

Supplies used:
Do play along with this month's Live Love Laugh challenge.  We would love to see what you create.  For any supplies that you might need or want, check out Lora's One Crazy Stamper store and the High Hopes Stamps website.
