Gnome Friends!

Happy Tuesday!
Oh my gosh I just love me anything Gnome!! Gnomes seem to be all the rage now and that suits me just fine! I was at our local garden centre recently and there were so many cute ones to add indoors or out in your garden! Now I'm just waiting for their sale and I'm going to scoop some up! The "Little Gnomes" stamp from High Hopes is absolutely adorable and I know this won't be the only card I design with them!
I decided to use papers from the Photoplay Tiny Prints called "Tulla & Norbert". The colours in this collection are so pretty and the plaid is my favourite! I stamped, coloured and then cut the image out using my Brother Cut N Scan. I added some ribbon and Stickles to their hats for a fun design element. Of course the HH sentiment called "Chillin' Gnomies" goes perfect with this image!
I added some foam squares to my cut out image to give my card a bit of dimension.

Let's Go On A Journey!

Hi!
Don't you just love old vintage cars? I love it when you see them out driving, they always get lots of stares! Where I live we have a car show every August called "Moparfest. It's the biggest all Mopar show in Canada and people come from all over to show their cars or to see the sights! I think High Hopes "Vintage Car" would be perfect in that show!
I stamped and coloured my image with Copic Markers and then die cut it using a Stitched Fishtail die. I matted my card base with black, red and then paper from the Authentique "Everlasting" 6x6 collection. The HH sentiment "Journey" goes perfectly with this car, that is perfect for just going out cruising around. Some rick rack ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card.
Copics Used:
R37, R59, R89

Magical Moments!

Happy 1st of June!
Wow I can't believe it's June already!! We've been blessed with such gorgeous weather this past month and hopefully it continues all Summer! Lora has opened the High Hopes "vault" again this month and has released what we are calling the "Mix It Up Release". I chose to use this adorable stamp called "Dragon Pals". I think maybe this Pal is going to teach this little one how to fly!
I decided to use papers from the Doodlebug "Dragon Tails" 6x6 collection. I started by stamping my image with Copic friendly ink and coloured it with my alcohol markers. Using a Gina Marie Feathered Lace rectangle, I cut out my image. I used some foam square and popped up the whole orange piece with the image up for added dimension. It's difficult to see but I used a glitter pen on all the orange parts of the dragons. It looks so cute in person with the glitter effect. Some matching twine and enamel dots add a finished touch.
On the decorated inside I used the High Hopes sentiment called "Magical Moments".
Copics Used:
YG01, YG03, YG17, G28, G29
Y17, Y38, YR68
W0, W1, W3, W5
B21, B28

No Waves, No Glory!

Hi!
My Hubby and I took a surfing lesson when we were in Hawaii. Boy it sure is harder than it looks and I never did get up on the board, just took lots of tumbles. Hubby made it up a few times and thinks he looked like "Surfer Bob" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. Let me tell you, it wasn't quite like that and I have the CD to prove it LOL.
Every once in a while I like to make a Stair Step card. They are fun, easy to make and you can create little scenes. I thought Bob would look perfect surfing on this card base. The sentiment "No Waves" from HH goes perfectly with this card.
I used a stitched wave die in 3 colours of blue and glued them to the "steps". Some are popped up with foam tape for added dimension. I took a sponge, some white ink and dabbed the waves to look like the whitecaps in the Ocean. I love this surf board paper from Bo Bunny's "Beach Therapy" 6x6 collection. The sentiment "No Waves" from HH goes perfectly with this card.
I added some clouds in the background and glued them to acetate so they looked like they are floating in the background. I hand drew the birds on the clouds.
Copics Used:
Skin: E01, E11, E13, R20, R22
Hair: C6, C7, C9
Trunks: R37, R59, R89
Waves: B000, B00, B01, B63

Wart's Up?

Happy Tuesday!
I love the simple lines of this stamp from High Hopes called "Raindrops Ribbit". This froggie is perfect for beginners to advanced "colorers" and makes such an adorable card! Plus "Raindrops Ribbit" can be used for any occasion! I used the sentiment "Wart's Up" but really any sentiment would work fine.
I made a card 5.5" square today using papers from the Echo Park "Spring Fling" 6x6 collection. I stamped my image, coloured it with my Copic Markers and then cut it out using a Gina Marie Stitched Arch die. Some ribbon, a bow and some sparkling crystals finish off my card.
Copics Used:
G28, YG17, YG03, YG01
BG01, BG02/ BG07, BG53, BG57

Curious Kitty!

Hello!!
I'm sharing this cutie today called "Curious Kitty" from High Hopes Stamps. I have never had a cat but this reminds me of my fur baby Stella. Today she sat staring at a bumble bee on my flowering bush and then when it went to fly away she jumped and nearly caught it in her mouth. Now it was a game of chase between the bee and Stella around the yard. I'm sure the bee was saying "catch me if you can" LOL.
I decided to use papers from the Echo Park "I Love My Cat"6x6 collection. After stamping and colouring my image with my Copic Markers, I cut it out using a hexagon stitched die. My sentiment is also from HH and is called "From Meow To You". I inked all the paper edges and wooden embellishment with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.
Copics Used:
E08, E09, E97
YG01, YG03, Y08
R01, R02, R22

Bugs and Kisses!

Happy Tuesday!
Oh my gosh, I just love this "Buggy Stack" from High Hopes Stamps! Look at those cute little faces!!!I had so much fun colouring these adorable "buggies"! The HH sentiment "Bugs and Kisses" goes perfectly with this sweet card!
I stamped my image with Copic friendly ink on some Copic friendly paper and then coloured in the bugs. I tried to colour the butterfly to resemble a Monarch. Using my Brother Cut N Scan, I cut out the image and a matching outline in red. I decided to keep my card design simple and just ran a piece of white cardstock through my machine using a Darice Large Petal embossing folder. For a twist, I cut the "Bugs and Kisses" sentiment into 3 pieces and adhered using foam tape. I love how the image pops off the white background!
Copics Used:
Faces & Hands: E00, E11, E21, R2o
Ladybug: R35, E37, R46, R59/ C1, C5, C6, C7, C8

Hugs To Cheer You!

Hello!
Sometimes you just need a card to cheer a friend up and to let them know you are there! "Andy & Alex Mouse" from High Hopes Stamps along with the sentiment "Hugs To Cheer You" makes the sweetest card to give to someone dear to you! You could also use this image for a Valentine's or Anniversary card!
Sometime ago I went through my 6x6 paper pads. I kept the pads I liked and ripped out paper from some pads that I only liked a few of the papers from. Anything left I donated to our neighbour's daughter who is a teacher. Her class loved them and used them in their art classes. This paper is from the ripped out papers so I have no idea who made it. All I know is that it was perfect for Andy & Alex! I stamped my image onto Copic friendly paper and using my Copic markers coloured it in to match my papers. Next I cut around the image with a Stitched Scallop Circle from Memory Box. Some twine and enamel dots finish off my card.
Copics Used:
Mice: N0, N1, N2, N3, R01, R02, R20
Andy: R35, R46, R59/ YR21, YR23, YR24
Alex: R81, R83, R85, R89/ R35, R46, R59
Grass: YG91, YG93
