Ooops Ellie

                           Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans! 

I can't believe it's the last day of March already! Last Thursday we had a major ice storm and this week (starting Sunday) they are calling for plus temperatures - some of them double digits! It has definitely been crazy weather. Some of my friends didn't fair so well with the ice storm so I thought a card featuring Oops Ellie might cheer them up a little. It could also be used for missed birthdays but today I chose to use to hopefully bring a smile. 




I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and them using a Spellbinders circle and my Fiskars circle cutter to cut it out. The stamp is mounted on grey and pink cardstock and patterned paper from the Vintage Bliss paper pad from Simple Stories. A couple corner dies and some grey gumdrops finish off my simple layout for this card. 

Card Recipe
Stamps: Oops Ellie (R084) - High Hopes
Love Earth Gumdrops - YNS
Patterned Paper: Vintage Bliss - Simple Stories
Dies: Classic Circles - Spellbinders, Corner Set - Whimsy


Spectrum Noir Markers: 1G1 1G3 1G7 BT2 BT4 BT5 CG1

Magical Day - High Hopes Stamps!

Hi there, thanks for peeking in today.!  I've been colouring up this magical image which is a  fave of mine.
I think this might  make a nice Mothers Day card. What do you think?
Made with ...
The paper reminds me of a  floral tea cup. or vintage wall paper!  I stitched up the oval scallop with some thick sewing thread.  Also stitched the back ground paper with some straight and zig zag stitches too
The sentiment was stamped on white card stock which was cut into a banner shape and slightly curled for a different look. 
white sharpie markers was doted on the wings of this gal and on the sentiment too. 

The following Copic markers were used to create this card.

High Hopes "Spring 2016 Collection" - Sneak Peak Day 2

Welcome to High Hopes "Spring 2016 Release" Sneak Peak Day 2, we are glad you could join us today!
Today I'm sharing "Blooming Friends" with the new "Love Blooms" sentiment.  I had a little fun with this one and did the Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers.  This is SC585 which you can find over on Splitcoast. 

The new SVG cut files are saving me so much time in fussy cutting I'm just lovin' them.  The Blooming Friends image was stamped on Copic Xpress It, then stamped using my Misti right onto the Xpress It.  I used the larger SVG file for my mat which is Bazzil Springtime Green.  I did the same thing with my Love Blooms sentiment.  The flowers were coloured with my YR61 Sketch marker and then sprayed with some frosty sparkle for extra pizzaz.
