Bob Loves to Ski Doo

Hello High Hopes Fans

Here is another card I made, using stamps from the New Release!

This is Bob Loves to Ski Doo (T512), along with the sentiment from Sentiment Set #1 (U500).  Bob is having sooo much fun!!!
I coloured Bob with Copic Markers (E01, E31, 0, C1,C2, W5, W7, BG45, BG49, B01, Y06, and Y08).  The die is from Spellbinders and is called - Curved Rectangles.  A grey ink pad was used to sponge on the edges of this die cut.  To add some glitter, I used Wink of Stella-clear glitter pen for Bob's helmet, boots, and coat cuffs.  Some YNS Gumdrops - Blue Raspberry were used to finish the card off.  The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye - Now and Then 6x6 Paper Pad, along with some Grey Cardstock.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Julie's Touch

Hello High Hopes Fans

I am excited to share another one of my cards, using one of the stamps and sentiment from the new release.
This is Julie's Touch (U503) and Sentiment Set #2 (U501).  Isn't she adorable? 

This was a wonderful image to colour!  After I finished colouring Julie with Tombow Markers and water, I added some clear glitter (using a Wink of Stella pen) to her wings and on the pink part of the bird.  I also used some Glossy Accents on the blue colour of the cute little bird.  The oval dies were popped out with foam tape to give the card some added dimension.  The background was created with a Sizzix embossing folder called Bow Strings Set, and a white chalk ink dewdrop was wiped over top of the raised portions. It's a little difficult to see the white colour on the background, but it does look quite nice on the card.  To finish the card off, I added a piece of pink ribbon, some rose coloured pearls, and popped up the sentiment at the top of the card.     

Supplies Used:
Ink - Tombow Markers - N60, 491, 528, 942, 850, 800, 723, 977, 992, 933, 856, 126, and 133. Versamark Ink Pad, Black Embossing Powder, Versamagic Dewdrop - cloud white (chalk ink), and pink ink pad for sponging.
Paper - Pink, White, and Green Cardstock.
MiscUni-Ball White Gel Pen, Spellbinders-Petite Ovals Small & Large Die Sets, Sizzix - Bow Strings Set Embossing Folder, Pink Ribbon, Kaisercraft Rose Pearls, Wink of Stella-glitter clear, Glossy AccentsWater Brush, Foam Tape, Glue Dots.

Gabriel's Cozy Ice Hut

                          Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans! 

Did you see the new challenge? It is Anything High Hopes Goes!
The May Challenge can be found here
It runs through 7pm EST Sunday, May 31st.

For my post today, I am sharing Gabriel's Cozy Ice Hut and a sentiment from the Sentiment #1 set. Gabriel sure is having fun in his hut isn't he?! 


I stamped my image and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Spectrum Noir Markers. Gabriel and his ice hut are fussy cut and glued onto the snowflake paper background. I used a black marker to continue his fishing line down into the water and added a hook to the end.
 Not sure it's tempting to the fish but hey, a guy's gotta try right!
