Frightfully Delightful

The new High Hopes release is coming on the 1st so I have one last chance to share another fall image before the team goes goo goo gaa gaa with all the new amazing and adorable babies!

Today I am sharing a card I made using Pumpkin Buddies.


I colored the image with Prisma Color Pencils and blended with blending stumps and gamsol.
The main image was die cut with Fitted Frames B from Stampendous.
The sentiment was die cut with dies from Spellbinder.


The fun Halloween paper is from Doodlebug Designs.

Turkey Crossing!

Hi HH Fans!
It's my last post for the August Challenge/ Theme "Fall & Halloween"! I fell in love with this guy, what a turkey he is (pun intended LOL). This stamp is called "Turkey Getaway".
I'm using papers from the Doodlebug Happy Harvest 6x6 collection. The colours are so rich and the patterns so fun! I used the YNS Fishtail Flag Border and then added cut out letters to make my "Turkey Xing" banner. The sentiment "Poultry in Motion" is also from High Hopes Stamps and goes perfectly with this Turkey! A bit of twine and some twine bows finished off my card.
Here's the inside decorated and waiting for you to sign it!
Copics Used:
Turkey: E11, E13, E15/ Y32, Y35, Y38/ R22, R24, R27
Tail: E16, E18/ E00, E11/ E11, E15, E17/ E19
Scooter: YR14, YR16, YR18/ W3, W5, W7, W8/ Silver Wink of Stella

Pumpkin Patch

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

TGIF!!!  As summer nears the end, the air starts to feel a bit more crisp and harvest season is near.  I am excited to share another fall card with you today.
 Jane
 
This is Pumpkin Patch (S152).  I just love the country appeal this stamp has!
 
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, Glossy Accents were added on the lettering of the sign and on the crow's beak and heart.   

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Always Artichoke cardstock and the layering piece is SU Kraft cardstock.  The designer paper is from Simple Stories-Take A Hike 6x6 Paper Pad.  A sponge dauber with a SU Chocolate Chip Ink Pad was used to sponge ink around the edge of the image and layering piece, to give the card a more country/rustic look.  Foam tape was applied to the main image to help make it pop out a bit and add some dimension.  To complete this card, some strips of twine with a bow was added, along with a few sparkling clear sequins. 
 
Supplies Used:
***Note: If you are in need of any products used here, please send Lora at OCS an email and I'm sure she would be happy to get the item(s) you are looking for.
 
Ink - Tombow Markers - 055, 985, 925, 933, 126, 195, 245, 847, 905, 969, 977, 947 and N45; Versamark Ink Pad, Black Embossing Powder, SU Chocolate Chip Ink Pad for sponging edges.
 
Paper - Simple Stories-Take A Hike 6x6 Paper Pad, SU Always Artichoke & Kraft Cardstock;  Watercolour paper.
 
Thanks for stopping by!  And I hope you come back to visit soon!!!

Harvest Harry

Howdy - MichelleO here today and it is feeling like Fall around High Hopes Stamps - one of my first fall stamps at High Hopes stamps was Harvest Harry - love this guy -


 My kind of scarecrow... just snoozing while on the job. Wonderful! I colored with my Copics (colors below)  Matching up with papers from Farm House Fair Skies collection. Wonderful Rich colors. I sewed down the layers, and the cut out the image and matted it and cut around it. I used the High Hopes "Happy Fall y'all" LOVE that Y'all! I added three buttons - and then added some Martha Stewart Leaf and branch punches. Topped off with three mulberry roses in fall colors.

Copic colors used -


 Hope the Fall weather is coming soon and things are cooling off where you are! Coloring it up to bring it faster!

Have a wonderful day -
MichelleO
