Sometimes You Just Need To....

 Happy Wednesday OCS Fans!

I hope you are enjoying our month of new release stamps from High Hopes celebrating birthdays!

My card this week features the new release "Bandit's Cake" and the "Eat Cake" sentiment. I don't know about you but sometimes a gals just gotta eat cake! and I know my dog likes to have a Birthday party too - whether it's his Birthday or not - he just wants cake! Okay he loves banana muffins but to him it's cake! 



I coloured our oh so cute Bandit in pug colours and cut him out using a stitched square die. I added some colour to his eyes by drawing a light pencil line inside the edge and then colouring the pupil and then added some colour. 
My patterned paper is from my stash but I wanted more of a party feel to it so I used a mini confetti stamp to add some party feel fun. 
The sentiment was stamped and cut using a classic oval die and all the paper,sentiment and image were inked on edges with matching ink. 
I added some edges by die cutting some resplendent rectangles and cutting the decorative end off of them. Some gumdrops and Star Dust Stickles added to the icing for sparkly sprinkles finish off my card.

Yertle's Belated Birthday

 Welcome back OCS fans! Happy Wednesday!

I am having way too much fun playing with the new Party Time release from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. 

This week I am playing with "Yertle Turtle Birthday" - I LOVE his name - and the "Belated Birthday" sentiment. 

Poor Yertle, he is a turtle and moves VERY slowly so he missed the Birthday party. He looks a little sheepish about missing the party but also very happy to bring belated wishes. 




After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers I fussy cut it with my trusty manicure scissors, added some Stickles and a clear sparkle pen for some bling and set it aside to dry. 
While my image was drying, I cut a piece of white cardstock and a cloud die, grabbed some light blue ink and a dauber and created my sky background. A picket fence and some grass hills finish off my background scene for Yertle. 
Patterned paper pieces and cardstock were cut to size to fit my 5.5" x 5.5" base and everything was glued down. The sentiment was stamped and mounted, a ribbon bow added and some enamel dots to finish off my card.

It's Birthday Time over on the One Crazy Stamper's  website this month and I am so happy to share my hedgy birthday card today.
This cutie is so darn thrilled over the cupcake. Totally love him to bits!!
Made with ...
 I started off creating this card by colouring the image with Copic Markers.
The image was then masked and and the background stamped with the Yay sentiment. Added confetti to create a shaker type card and a foam dot border to help the confetti stay in place.  I used a transparency for the window of the shaker that was glued to the foam.
 Next the top frame was glued into place and an added bow and birthday sentiment.
 Thanks for peeking  :)

Happy Birthday...

Welcome OCS Fans;

Myra Webb our Guest Designer for this month is back with another card from this month's HH Release called "Party Time".  More details can be found on Myra's blog.



By now you must be wondering whether I am an animal lover? Of course! That's why today I get to share another High Hopes stamp! The birthday Chihuahua - "Chi Chi's Party", is available at One Crazy Stamper and High Hopes Stamps!

Have a look:


To color this I used Tim Holtz Distress crayons. I am just learning all the fabulous ways to use this  product. This was my first attempt. I colored this card using watercolor paper. The crayons offered an interesting effect. I have since learned there are so many more options on how to use this product you will be sure to see more!


Of course I had to add some interest to the inside:


The supplies I used were:
