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!
