Stork's Special Delivery!

Happy Monday High Hopes Friends
Carolina here, I'm using today the 'FREE DIGI' stamp from High Hopes Stamps. 
Such a gorgeous image call Stork's Special Delivery!


I copy and paste the image and print it...so easy right!
I have used a soft colour combo of Basic Gray, Very Vanilla and some light Yellow. 

I color my image with color pencil and used "Gamsol" to blend the colors.
For the background I used a Cricut Cuttlebug folder (Swiss Dots) and a small piece of  paper from 'StoryTime Collection' Paper Pad, I add P.P.P. sequins and Diamond Stickles the rest of the embellishments are from my stash.

I have decorated the inside with the same paper from the front of the card 
I add the sentiment  'Congratulation On Your New Addition' from HHS. 
The baby bottle is a stamp from my stash!

Two Peas In a Pod

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
 
Happy Saturday Friends!  Today, I have some news to share with you all... I have decided to step down from the Design Team for now, in order to pursue some other interests and schooling.  This has been a tough decision, but I do hope to occasionally stop by as a guest and share some of my creations when time allows for this.  I would like to thank Lora for being so supportive and motivating during my time on the team.  To the entire Design Team, it was a pleasure to meet and get to know you all.  I wish each of you all the best and hope to see more of your creativity in the future.  Thank you all for making me feel so welcome and part of this amazing team!    
 Lisa
 
This is Two Peas In a Pod (SS019) and Precious Little One sentiment (HH023).  Such a cute image!!!
 
The image was stamped on Copic Xpress It cardstock using my Misti Stamping Tool with a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad.  The image was coloured with Copic Markers. 
 
For the card base, I chose a piece of SU Always Artichoke cardstock.  The designer paper is from Carta Bella-Dots & Stripes 6x6 Paper Pad.  No foam tape was used on this card, and kept relatively flat for mailing purposes. A strip of SU Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon was added behind the image.  To complete this card, a bunch of green and pink sequins were adhered around the image and a couple of clear rhinestones were added on the dots of the "i"s of the sentiment.  A quick and easy, yet adorable card to make.  I sure hope this inspires you to create one too!
  
Supplies Used:
InkCopic Markers - E30, E49, R32, G94 and G99; Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad.

Baby Giraffe New Addition

Hey Stampers! 
Happy Saturday!!

Hope you all are enjoying a wonderful weekend so far! I'm stopping by today to share another sweet little card I created using the new High Hopes Stamps Baby Boom release.


 I used the "Baby Giraffe" (SS0118) &  Sentiment: "New Addition"(HH022) Stamps
I colored this little Baby Giraffe with Copics: E00 E11 E113 E15 E18 RV02 & Spectrum Noir: CT2


The embellishments that I used for this card is YNS Strawberry Gumdrops that I got from One Crazy Stamper ... I said it before, I LOVE LOVE LOVE YNS Gumdrops!!!

I used a piece of baby pink satin ribbon and I punched a heart banner from white card stock and added some pink baker's twine to top it off.

I also took the High Hopes Sketch Challenge with this Card.

Baby Hedgehog Bath

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

TGIF!!!  And for those lucky people attending ScrapFest in Richmond Hill, Ontario this weekend - I sure hope you all enjoy the show and get a chance to visit the OCS/High Hopes Stamps Booth! 

Here is another card that I have created using some of the new stamps from the recent Baby Boom Release...
 Jane
 
This is Baby Hedgehog Bath (SS021) and Ten Little Phrase sentiment (LL001).  Such an adorable image!
 
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, glossy accents were applied on the hedgehog's nose, bath lather and bubbles.  A Wink of Stella-yellow glitter pen was added on the little towel to add some sparkle.  For the hedgehog's hair, Fun Flocks-dark chocolate was glued on.  This helped to make the little guy fuzzy!  The image was cut using a MFT Stitched Circle Die and also the same die was used to cut a piece of SU Chocolate Chip cardstock to layer it.   

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Chocolate Chip cardstock. SU Bashful Blue cardstock was cut for the background, then dry embossed using a Tim Holtz Bubbles Embossing Folder.  I used a white ink pad with a sponge dauber to colour the raised bubbles.  The designer paper is from Doodlebug-Snips & Snails 6x6 Paper Pad.  The sentiment phrase was heat embossed with Stampendous-Ice Blue embossing enamel. I just love the little bit of shimmer and shine this gives to the words.  A MFT Stitched Fishtail Flag die was used to cut the phrase and foam tape was applied to help make it pop out a bit and add some dimension.  To complete this card, a bunch of YNS gumdrops were added.   
 
Supplies Used:
***Note: If you are in need of any products used here, please send Lora at OCS an email and I'm sure she would be happy to get the item(s) you are looking for.
 
Ink - Tombow Markers - 969, 533, 990, 942, 800, N35, N65, N75, N95, 062 and 055; Versamark Ink Pad, Stampendous-Ice Blue Embossing Enamel & Black Embossing Powder; SU White Craft Ink Pad for sponging dry embossed bubbles on the background.
 
Paper - Doodlebug-Snips & Snails 6x6 Paper Pad; SU Chocolate Chip & Bashful Blue Cardstock;  Watercolour paper.
 
Misc. - Misti Stamping ToolGlossy Accents, Zig-Wink of Stella yellow glitter pen, MFT-Stitched Circle Die, Sizzix-Tim Holtz Bubbles Embossing Folder, Fun Flocks-Dark Chocolate, Flower Soft Glue, YNS Gumdrops-Love Me Some Latte, Sponge Dauber, Water Brush, Foam Tape and Glue Dots.

Thursday, September 22, 2016

It's Thursday again and my turn to post some inspiration for you. 

My card features "Crawling Baby Boy" and "New Addition" sentiment from the new Baby Boom release. 

Babies are cute and as soon as there is one in the room everyone is reaching for their camera! Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt, Uncle - we all want a picture of finger and toes and baby cuteness! 




I cut out my stamp with a polaroid die after colouring it with alcohol markers. I coloured two images so I had the fingers and toes to add to my filmstrip die. His diaper is paper pieced - after all he needs some cute clothes for a photo shoot!  I used some fun paper from MME and inked the edges with antique linen ink.  Twine and brads to finish off my card.

Stamp: Crawling Baby Boy (RR006)

Swaddled Baby Girl

Howdy - MichelleO here and I have a confession… I am in total love with the new release at High Hopes Stamps. Who doesn't love a baby? Today I had fun playing with "Swaddled Baby Girl"


Isn't she adorable? I colored her with my Copics (colors below), I then paper pieced the blanket. Love the pink and green pattern paper from Authentique Cuddle Baby Girl Collection. I matched it up with Core'dinations pink and cream card stock. I sanded all the card stock, and sewed down the layers with a large zig zag stitch. I cut out a Spellbinders Scalloped Diet to mat the circle cut of the image. A bunch of mulberry flowers, with Martha Stewart Frond Leaf punches, sanded and white opaque paint to enhance. The High Hopes sentiment "It's a girl" just perfect. For some added embellishment I added dots of Viva Decor Cream Pearl Pen.

Copic colors used -



This collection is just adorable. To see all the new cuteness PLEASE CLICK HERE

Hope you enjoyed my little baby card - Make sure to visit the High Hopes Stamps blog to see lots of inspiration. You can do that HERE

Baby Shower -- High Hopes

Hi there, I'm back again to share a little tag creation I've been working on.  Thought these would make some fun baby shower invites to welcome a little baby boy.
Created with the following High Hopes Stamps ...
 The tag was hand cut from Kraft card stock and a hole punch at the top.  I used a score board to create a score line  on the back piece of the tag so it would bend with a nice crease and sit like a card.
The tag has lots of stitching including the straight stitch and some zigzag's too.   Just a few Copic markers were used being ...
