Sweet cadillac

Happy Sunday!!

Today I'd like to share with you a gift I made for my son.
Here in The Netherlands we have sweets called "Autodrop" and my son likes these pink Cadillac sweets the most. So when he had a school trip last week I couldn't resist making him a surprise gift ..with some hidden cash for an icecream ;)

I used El Classico with the New Adventure sentiment.
Dessinpaper is from Basic Grey and I used a MFT die to cute out the paper.

Find Joy in the Journey...

Welcome HH Fans;

Now that summer is here, school is out and it is time to go on an excursion and find joy in the journey.

For today's card I have used Ron's Royce from High Hopes Stamps latest release called "Modes of Transportation".

Instead of using design paper, I created my own using the GoPress and Foil machine along with a Hot Foil Stamp, an embossing folder and heat activated foil.

The GoPress and Foil machine is used along with your die cutting machine.  It is the pressure from the die cutting machine that will help add the foil which is heated on the GoPress machine first.  The Introduction to GoPress and Foil youtube video gives a good overview of its many functions.

The small strip on the left hand side is a hot foil stamp.  The bigger piece on the right hand is an embossing folder. I have seen the embossing folder and GoPress machine used in two different ways.  The first way is to run the embossing folder through the die cutting machine first, giving a raised appearance.  The second way, is not to run the embossing folder through the die cutting machine which gives it a flat appearance. The embossing folder with the  raised side down, is put on top of some cardstock, which is then put down on top of the foil which is colour side down, which is put on top of a metal shim on top of the GoPress machine platform.

Your Best Miles

I have a couple of nieces and nephews who are old enough to drive and have their own vehicles. 
After I get over feeling old, I try to come up with Birthday cards that are unique to each of them. My latest card is for a nephew who is turning 18 in July - Yikes! Hopefully he doesn't have a need for speed like this stamp suggests...hmmm...maybe I should rethink this and the gas card I was going to include with it....... 

After stamping my car and colouring it with alcohol markers I hand fussy cut it and ran a black marker around the edge to cover any white I had missed. 
Paper from Basic Grey and some from my stash were perfect for my masculine themed card. I cut out the licence plate for the background and stamped one of my sentiments directly on it - I see now it's not actually straight but I'm the "crazy aunt" so I decided to leave it just for fun! 
The second sentiment is actually one long sentiment but I masked it off to stamp it so I had a stacked sentiment. Some simple gumdrops finish off my card.

Love Bug

Howdy - MichelleO here today and I have been cruising around and love playing with the new Modes of Transportation release at High Hopes Stamps. And today I went on a little Mid Century Vibe...

Here is the new "Love Bug TT147" stamp... love how fun this one is!

I found papers from Die Cuts With a View "Hippie Chic" collection that well... just screamed to be used with the Love Bug stamp. I did some paper piecing and decided that if I was going to have a real Love Bug it would be one of two ways.... either done up to look like Herbie the Love Bug a childhood favorite, or a wild paint job with lots of bling and flowers! And this is just that! This paper has some bling to it so that worked out really well.

Matching up papers from the Hippie Chic collection I layered up the papers after inking the edges with a Copic marker. Added the fabulous sentiment "Crazy" and is a great stamp for me.

Three buttons for embellishment, loved the flower shape.

Was a bit worried that it was too busy, but then Hubby said he liked it and all the patterns was so 60's... Flash back those childhood dresses with 10 different bold flower patterns in bright colors. LOL

So I went with it!

Copic colors used for what wasn't paper pieced.

Now for you to find some fun Modes of Transportation to get away and color up some friends. Click HERE to zip right over to the High Hopes Store!

Thanks so much!
