Blinky Owl

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

Happy Friday and for all of our American friends - Happy Memorial Day Holiday Weekend!!! Hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday!

It's also Fab Friday again too!!!  So don't forget to stop by the High Hopes website and visit the Fab Fridays sale section!  There are some great deals going on there.  The link can be found here. Happy shopping!!! 

For today's card, here is another one of my creations from the New Release - Spring 2016 Collection...
 Jane
 
This is Blinky Owl (SS014), Blinky Owl SVG Files (SS014SVG), Another Year Wiser (FF010) and Another Year Wiser SVG File (FF010SVG).  These owls are just the sweetest ever!  And there are lots of different ones to choose from...and even additional accessories to coordinate with them too! 

To start, I cut the SVG files for the owl image (using the point 7 file for the stamped image) on watercolour paper. I used 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 image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, some glossy accents were added to Blinky's beak and feet.  I just love this shine and bit of dimension!

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Basic Gray cardstock.  A YNS stitched rectangle die was used to cut the white layered piece. The designer papers are from Doodlebug-Hip Hip Hooray paper pack.  The coloured owl image was mounted on the SVG cut file (14-layering) using SU Crushed Curry cardstock, and then foam tape was applied to mount the main image on the card to add some dimension. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder.

To complete this card, a few YNS-white gumdrops were used on the top and bottom corners of the card, and a small piece of Doodlebug Twine-gray was tied above the sentiment designer paper to resemble the bow on a present.

Just Because Puppy

I am totally in love with this adorable puppy!!  This is "Puppy Wonder" and the "Just Because" sentiment from the new Spring Collection 2016.

Both the stamp and sentiment were cut with their matching SVG files using my Cricut and coloured with SN alcohol markers and SN Sparkle pens on the butterfly. I added a sky background that I ran through the Swiss Hearts embossing folder from Taylored Expressions and added some die cut clouds from Die'sire and a picket fence from YNS. The patterned paper is from the 6x6 Spring pad from Echo Park. I used a Memento Tuxedo Black pen on the edge of the image to highlight it.

Dribble Master

Howdy - MichelleO here today and I would like to you meet a Dribble Master - love how cute this new image is from High Hopes Stamps. Dribble Master is great, sometimes finding a sports stamp for the girl in your life. And this basketball girl is really a super star!


I colored with my copics (colors below) and found papers from Farm House FairSkies collection. Older papers but I love the rich colors. I sewed down the layers with a metallic thread, gives a new sparkle bling to the card. The sentiment is also from High Hopes newest release. "What's Up?" ... to fun with this image don't you think?  Then I added a few flat enamel dots for embellishement, this way the card is still totally flat to mail.

Copic colors used -


Great fun image - and there are lots of great one in this release! See them all HERE -

Dont stop the music - File folder

 Hi there, it's another happy Wednesday!
I created a file folder  using High Hopes ...
I thought it would be fun to add Summer 2016 photos  of friends, family, the garden, BBQ's and everything else Summer!
The image and background was coloured with Copics. I trimmed down a file folder and scored the bottom so it would sit flat. Matted the image with bright orange card stock and used a file folder tab die (found here) to create the dividers.

 The sentiment is cut up and matted with black card stock so it stands out against the background. 
Behind the bow is a piece of Velcro and on the opposite side of the folder  the piece of ribbon is hot glued to the back of the folder. 
Thanks for peeking!
Have a super crafty day!

I colored this adorable image with colored pencils.
The paper is from Michael's.

I used my Spellbinders classic oval and classic Scallop oval dies.


This image is perfect for a thank you for a coach, a birthday card, or a congrats for your favorite soccer player.

Girls Can Play Basketball Too!

It's Tuesday!
I am over on the High Hopes Stamps blog today with my adorable card using the new stamp called "Dribble Master". How awesome is it that High Hopes  has some girl sport themed images?!
Doodlebug has the perfect 6x6 paper pad called Slam dunk that worked perfectly with my basketball themed card! I used my MISTI to cut out the SVG file to stamp the image and for the background mat. This little cutie has Clear Wink of Stella on all the orange coloured clothing. I drew the stitching around the sentiment and finished everything off with a few YNS Gumdrops.
I searched the Internet for "girl basketball sayings" and used what I found on the front and inside of my card! LOVE IT!
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair: E31, E33, E35, E37
Oranges: YR14, YR16, YR18
Greys: T0, T1, T3, T4, T5, T7

See you next week!
