Hog Wash

Happy Summer Thursday Fans! 

My post today features an older stamp from High Hopes called "Good Clean Fun" and the Hog Wash sentiment also from High Hopes. 

Pigs love mud especially on a hot summer day! I added some "mud" to two of these little cuties when I was colouring the image. 




My image is coloured with alcohol markers and cut out with a stitched rectangles die. I challenged myself to use some of my scraps and smaller pieces from an Echo Park paper pad as well as some paper from my stash. Fishtail banner dies were the perfect die for cutting these out.  A piece of pink paper run through an embossing folder gave me the perfect background for this very pink card! lol

Lil' Swinger

Howdy - MichelleO here today for my Wednesday post -

This week for High Hopes I went with one of the new images "Lil' Swinger"

She just makes me smile... I feel a cool breeze and enjoy the swing with her.



She is too precious, I colored her with my Copics (colors below) and then sewed her down to some papers from Papermania Lucy Cromwell collection. I sewed all the layers with straight and zig zag stitches. I then added the great High Hopes Sentiment "Just Because"  This is one of my favorite new sentiments, I use it on many of my cards. Great for any card just to send a smile.

I then added a X-Large Martha Stewart Leaf punch with some little punched flowers. Simple but I like it.

Copic colors used -


Lots of great new images to play with - You can see them all HERE -

Rock On

Hello!  Kristine here with my Tuesday post.

I have had this patterned paper in my stash forever!

I am not even sure why I bought it  but I must have had an idea in my head at the time....this might explain some of my paper hoarding problem?

Anyway, I was very excited to get the new Rocking Out Stamp from High Hopes Stamps because I knew it would go great with this paper that has a drum set on it!



I colored the image with my Prisma Colored pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.

Oh...and the paper....It's Crate paper.
I kept the rest of the design pretty simple because it's a boy card so I didn't want it too fussy.



I used the Sizzix Large Square stand up card die for the card base so you can open it and have it stamd up to display.

The inside sentiment is Rock on.

Happy Birthday Canada!

Hi High Hope Fans!
This Friday is Canada Day for all us Canadians! When I saw this stamp from High Hopes Stamps called "Canadian Friends" I knew it would make a perfect card to celebrate our country! I think I will use it as part of my centrepiece for our Canada BBQ at the cottage!
I made the card base using a red piece of cardstock and my Silhouette Electronic Cutting machine. I popped up the "Canadian Friends"and the sentiment with foam squares for some added dimension. A handwritten Happy Birthday stamp and a few Maple leaves finished off my card. I also used my Silhouette to cut around my image and sentiment.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Mountie: R35, R37, R39 / N5, N7, N9 / Y35, Y38 / E53, E55, E57
Beaver: E43, E44, E47, E49
Moose: E55, E57, E59

To all my Canadian friends and followers..... I hope you have a great Canada Day weekend! I will certainly be enjoying the Fireworks, one of my favourite things about this long weekend!
Happy Stamping!

Puppy Love!!!

Carolina here,
Good Morning and welcome High Hopes Fans!

For today's post I'm using "Puppy Love" from High Hopes Stamps, 
an adorable stamp from their latest release!

I stamped "Puppy Love" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with alcohol markers.
 Copic List: Girl B93 B95 R11 YR02 E000 E00 V000 E11 E25 E25 0 Puppy W1 W3 W5 W7 
After my image was all coloured I fussy cut it. I used a white gelly roll pen and add some hast*tag on her skirt. For the background, I sponged the white cardstock with Distress ink and embossed with a polka-dots folder. I raise the main panel and the little girl with foam tape, to give my card a little bit of height. 

To finished my card I added glossy accent on her and fussy cut some flowers from "Fancy That"  paper pat. I decorated the tiny flowers with Diamond Stickles.

It's time for our June Challenge. Please join the fun for your chance to win your choice of 2 High Hopes Stamps

Rainy Day Ducky

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
 
Happy Saturday Friends!  I sure hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful and warm weather this weekend.  We sure could use a bit of rain though!

For today's post, I am sharing an older yet ever so cute image... 
 Lisa
 
This is Rainy Day Ducky (R142) and Fancy Script Happy Birthday Sentiment (HH019).  This image could be used for a variety of different occasions - for example: a baby, get well soon or Spring themed card.
 
The image was stamped on watercolor cardstock with a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad using my Misti Stamping Tool.  Tombow markers and water were used to colour the image.  After the image was all coloured and dry, Glossy Accents was applied on the puddle.  This added the extra shine to make it appear like water.
 
For the card base, I chose some SU Lavender Lace cardstock and Imagine Crafts Vertigo-Prism Texture Film.  The designer paper is from Doodlebug - Under the Sea 6x6 Paper Pad.  No foam tape was used on this card to allow the card to remain fairly flat for mailing purposes.  
 
To complete this card, a Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped and purple enamel dots were added for a finishing touch to this simple, yet adorable card.
 
Supplies Used:
Ink - Tombow Markers - 452, 856, N15, N45, N95, 723, 933, 743, 373, 985, 126, 905, 606 and 603.  Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad.
 
MiscMisti Stamping ToolGlossy Accents, Queen & Co.-purple enamel dots, Water brush and Glue Dots.

Rocking Out - CD/DVD Envelope

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

Whoo hoo - it's finally Friday!!!  In case you haven't heard the latest, High Hopes has a BOGO Event that starts today.  If you are looking to add to your stamp collection or get in on the fun, head over and check out this amazing deal!!! The link can be found here. Happy shopping!!! 

For today's post, I thought I would try something a little different using some stamps and SVG files from the New Release - Spring 2016 Collection...
 Jane
 
This is Rocking Out (TT025), Rocking Out SVG Files (TT025SVG) and Rock On Sentiment (FF005), all on a CD/DVD Envelope!  I thought this may make for a nice gift for someone, or just a handy and cute place to keep your CD/DVD's organized and protected.

To start, I cut the SVG file for this Rocking Out image (using the point 7 file) on watercolour paper. I used a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  The sentiment was also stamped and embossed on a separate piece of watercolour cardstock.  The sentiment was fussy cut and glued on to the front of the drum.  To colour the image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, Glossy Accents was applied on the cymbals and on his pants to resemble a shiny leather-look.

On the CD/DVD envelope, SU Black cardstock was used to die cut out some music notes and to layer the main image (using point 14 SVG File).  To complete the assembly of this envelope, all of the die cuts and image were glued on.

Such a quick and easy project to make!

Sew Sweet

Happy Thursday High Hopes fans! It is officially summer - whoo hooo! 

I used "Kathy Quilting Angel" and the Sew Sweet sentiment, both fun, older stamps from High Hopes. I personally am not a quilter, I've tried it and honestly it's not my thing but I have a ton of family who love to quilt. I have also been blessed with a lot of quilts made by my Grandmother and there is a ton of love in every stitch. 



I wanted my card to look like a quilt piece in progress. After colouring my image and cutting it out, I edged it with some matching turquoise ink. I created my background by using some left over pieces of paper and cutting them into 1" squares. It is not noticeable in the photo but the wings have clear Wink of Stella on them for a bit of glitter and Star Dust Stickles was added to the flower centres for a bit of bling. Sparkly gumdrops and a piece of ribbon finish off my card. 

Card Recipe
Stamps: Kathy Quilting Angel (R049)-  High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Sew Sweet- High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: We Are Family - Simple Stories
Dies: Classic Circle - Spellbinders
 Clear Wink of Stella, White Gel Pen, Star Dust Stickles, Flowers - Recollections, Dusk Blue Ink - Martha Stewart


Spectrum Noir Markers: FS1 FS2 TN2FS8 GB10 EB5 EB8 GB4 GB5 GB7 TN1 EB1 EB2 DR5 DR1 DR7 GB4 GB5 GB7 BT4 BT6 BT7 CG2 CG4 1G1 1G2

Fragrant blooms

Howdy - MichelleO here and I did a little coloring today on one of the new High Hopes Release stamps "Fragrant Blooms". Just love this gal watering her flowers with her little friends watching -


I went with different color combo for me. Purple and brown. Took the inspiration from the papers from BoBunny's Penny Emporium collection. I colored my image with my Copics (colors below) and then inked the edges with Rangers Tea Dye ink. My purple card stock is from Core'dnations and I sanded the edges for a shabby look. I added a mulberry flower and Martha Stewart frond leaf punches, with a button center.

The sentiment is also a new stamp from High Hopes "Everything Grows with Love" Perfect with this image!

Copic colors used -

Coffee Diva's!

Hi High Hopes Fans!
Today I am sharing with you the second card I made with the "Coffee Talk" stamp. I love this stamp and couldn't help myself, I had to make another card with it! Maybe it's my love of coffee.....ya think LOL! You can see my first card using the "Coffee Talk" stamp here.
I stamped the image onto the SVG cut file using my MISTI and layered it with the larger matching SVG file. The background is made using a stencil from Create A Smile called "Lots of Mugs". I taped it down to my paper and using Distress inks, I sponged several bright and fun colours. I also sponged the "coffee" chipboard embellishment to match. Some ribbon and sequins finished off my card.
I used the same background process for the inside as well as the HH "Girl Talk" sentiment.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E93, BV00, R20, RV06
Hair: E41, E43, E44 / E43, E44, E47, E49
Pinks: RV04, RV06, RV09
Blues: BG02, BG05, BG07
Yellows: Y11, Y13, Y17
Chairs: YR02, YR04, YR07 / C1, C3, C5
Table: C1, C3
