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

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.

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 -

Just Because!

Howdy All!
Now I am a big dog fan but when I saw this adorable Kitty stamp I just knew it would make an adorable card! Meet "Kitty's Flutter Friends" from High Hopes Stamps! My Girlfriends just got a new Kitten named Willow and oh my she is just adorable!

Of course the paper from Doodlebugs Kitten Smitten 6x6 collection was perfect for this cutie! I stamped my image and then masked it off. Using Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean and a cloud border stencil I created the sky background. I did also use Distress ink(Mowed Lawn) on the grass but wasn't happy with it, so I added a bunch of grass on top with my Copic markers. The "Just Because" is also a HH sentiment!
Copics Used:
C1, C2, C4, C5, C6
R01, R81, R83, R85
BG11, BG23, Y21

The paper is by Doodlebug Designs.
The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.


The blue hearts are actually buttons that I have had in my stash for a while.
I used Spellbinder Classic Circle and Classic Scallop circle dies.

Oh!  And the sentiment?


That's my share for today!

Bubble Bath Shower

Welcome back! My post today is sharing an older High Hopes stamp called "Bubble Bath Bradley". When I saw this stamp I immediately thought baby card! 
Since it is a bubble bath theme, I decided I would make a card for my stash for a baby shower. The inside will be filled in once I have a shower to go to - no there aren't any in my near future that I know of - this cutie is for my stash. 






I coloured the main stamp with alcohol markers but for the bubbles and water I added some glitter pen. Man glitter pens are hard to get a good photo of!!! I cut everything out with a classic circle die and my Fiskars circle cutter. I formed my card base and added paper from the Pebbles Lullaby collection. Twine, a flower from my stash, sentiment and gumdrops finish off my card.  

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Bubble Bath Bradley - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: It's A Baby Shower - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Lullaby - Pebbles
Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, classic circle die - Spellbinders, Moonstone Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen, cotton candy blue gumdrops - Your Next Stamp, twine - American Crafts

Spectrum Noir Markers: BG5 BG7 BG10 EB6 EB3 EB5 IG2 IG3 IG5 TN1 EB1 EB2 CT1 CT2 GY1 GB5

Lg. Puff Kitty - Thank You!

Howdy - MichelleO here again today and I am having so much fun playing with some older favorite High Hopes Stamps! This is Lg. Puff Kitty... so adorable! 



Just love this little kitty! I colored with my Copics,  colors below,  and then found some papers from My Minds Eye with some beige card stock. Love this paper it has all kinds of glitter on it. I used the sentiment "Lg. Script Thank You!" then 3 vintage buttons to finish it off. Almost made me twitch to not sew on this card... but oh my... I ran out of thread!! I know I have a new one here somewhere... I guess it is time to clean off the desk... and the shelves... sigh. I would rather color and craft!

Here are the Copic colors -


I adore my High Hopes Stamps! And playing with old favorites are such a joy! What is your favorite High Hopes Stamps? Pull them out and have some fun! 

Thanks so much -

Sorry I Missed It!

Hi HH Fans!
I'm just popping in to share another adorable image from High Hopes Stamps! This is "Beary Sweet Sign"! Isn't he just the sweetest bear ever!!!! The stamp comes blank which is awesome as you can add a sentiment for any occasion. How versatile and what great value! I love when you can use a stamp for multiple reasons!
No matter how organized I am, I always seem to miss someone's Birthday along the way! I made this card to have on hand for such an occasion! I'm using papers from my stash this time (a New Year's Resolution LOL). A simple layout and design but cute none the less! The sentiment is from HH called "Sorry I Missed It".
On the inside I used the High Hopes sentiment "Belated Birthday".
Copics Used:
E31, E33, E35, E41, E42, E43
RV04, RV09
G03, G05, G07

Happy Stamping!
