Just Married!

Hello HH Fans!
Don't you love a good Wedding! There is something about seeing a Bride that just gives me a "warm & fuzzy" feeling! This is "Just Married" from High Hopes Stamps. Off the Happily Married couple goes to start their new life together!
I decided to use paper from the Simple Stories The Story of Us 6x6 collection! I love the blacks and golds in this collection. I used the HH "Love Never Fails" sentiment on the front along with a few YNS Gold Gumdrops. You can't tell in the picture but the light grey parts on the card are actually coloured with Wink of Stella's Silver glitter pen. The bride and her flowers have Spectrum Noir Glitter pen on them as well.
I used die cuts from the SS The Story of Us Bits & Pieces set on the inside.
Copics Used:
C1, C2, C4, C6, C8
R24, R27, R81, R83, R85, R89
E00, B01, B02, YG23
Y23, Y26, Y28

Happy Stamping!

Feel Better Soon!

Happy Sunday!

It's this time of year were everbody seems to be caughing.. I've had the flu last month, but after 5 weeks I can't get rid of that caugh it seems... So what better way to feel a bit better than to do some cheerful colouring!! 
There is always someone who can use a card like this!
For the front I've used the Speedy Recovery Background .

This time I've decorated the inside too, because I didn't want Nurse Elisabeth Jo to cover up the beautiful background stamp at the front of the card. I've added a Dutch sentiment too. 

Base of the card is Bazzill white and some red cardstock. And the Copics I've used for both images:

Good Times

Did anyone else grow up going to slumber parties?? I grew up with a group of girls that often had slumber parties......or sleep overs are they are called today  - seemed every Birthday was the perfect excuse for a slumber party. Up too late, eating junk food and being silly - the perfect recipe for fun! 

My post for this week features "Girl Talk" an older stamp from High Hopes. There seems to be quite the story being told here! 

The stamp is coloured with alcohol markers and cut out using a stitched oval. I matched the stitched oval with the sentiment as well and used a stitched border die for a fun curve in the patterned paper. Photo corners, ribbon and gumdrops finish off my card.

Bessie Boo

Howdy - MichelleO here again today...

Ever have one of those weeks where life just would be nice to stay in PJ's with your hair in rollers and those comfortable cushy house shoes. Mine are on right now!

This is "Bessie Boo" and I think she is just precious.

I colored with my Copics (colors below) and paper pieced the outfit with the papers from First Editions Spring Drop collection to match the card. I found my thread and sewed down my layers of pattern papers on a white card stock base. Three dots of Viva Decor Paint Pen Green for some embellishment to finish it off. I love this image and decided to leave her as the main focus.

Copic colors used -
