Welcome Little One

                             Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans!


My post today features and older High Hopes stamp called "Just Bein Nosy" and the sentiment "Welcome Little One". How cute are these two nose to nose meeting each other. 




I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and cutting it out with a stitched rectangle die. I cut a die from Spellbinders and cut it apart to create the "frame" around my stamp. The edge of the stamp and patterned papers were given a bit of edging with distress ink. I added my sentiment and a few matte gumdrops to finish off my card.

Crawling Baby Boy

Howdy - MichelleO here today and with the new Baby Boom Release at High Hopes I have just been ga ga over coloring up and these cute babies. Since I worked with a baby girl card last week. This week I went with a little boy, blue and green colors. This image is Crawling Baby Boy.


Isn't' that a adorable little face? Well and that crawling with that little rear end up in the air. Colored with Copics (colors below) and then I matched it up with the papers from Authentique Cuddle Boy Papers. I sewed all the layers together with a zig zag stitch. Added three buttons and the the High Hopes Sentiment "It's a Boy" -

Copic colors used -


Hope you got a giggle out of the crawling little cutie -

Thanks so much for looking -

We Wish you a Merry Christmas -- High Hopes Stamps

Hi there, I'm back again to share a sweet baby and lamb image from High Hopes Stamps. This is such a beautiful scene for Christmas.  
Made with ...

The image is coloured with Copics and some stitches were added around the border of the card, sentiment and  image.  I love this scene and can see using this image for Easter, Christmas and sweet baby designs too.
The star is very glittery as Stickles were added for some extra bling.

I decided to use the Copic Airbrush on the card for some soft touches of colour. This Christmas design has no red and green, just some silver and gold details for a unique, non traditional feel .
Copic Markers # YG0000,R00,YG67,YG63,YG00,E21,C3,0,YG03,E000,B91,B97,B93

Two Peas In a Pod

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
 
Happy Saturday Friends!  Today, I have some news to share with you all... I have decided to step down from the Design Team for now, in order to pursue some other interests and schooling.  This has been a tough decision, but I do hope to occasionally stop by as a guest and share some of my creations when time allows for this.  I would like to thank Lora for being so supportive and motivating during my time on the team.  To the entire Design Team, it was a pleasure to meet and get to know you all.  I wish each of you all the best and hope to see more of your creativity in the future.  Thank you all for making me feel so welcome and part of this amazing team!    
 Lisa
 
This is Two Peas In a Pod (SS019) and Precious Little One sentiment (HH023).  Such a cute image!!!
 
The image was stamped on Copic Xpress It cardstock using my Misti Stamping Tool with a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad.  The image was coloured with Copic Markers. 
 
For the card base, I chose a piece of SU Always Artichoke cardstock.  The designer paper is from Carta Bella-Dots & Stripes 6x6 Paper Pad.  No foam tape was used on this card, and kept relatively flat for mailing purposes. A strip of SU Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon was added behind the image.  To complete this card, a bunch of green and pink sequins were adhered around the image and a couple of clear rhinestones were added on the dots of the "i"s of the sentiment.  A quick and easy, yet adorable card to make.  I sure hope this inspires you to create one too!
  
Supplies Used:
InkCopic Markers - E30, E49, R32, G94 and G99; Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad.
 
Paper - Carta Bella-Dots & Stripes 6x6 Paper Pad; SU Always Artichoke Cardstock; Copic Xpress It Cardstock.
 
MiscMisti Stamping Tool, SU Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, Doodlebug sequins (rainbow assortment), Ranger-Multi Medium Matte, Clear Rhinestones and Glue Dots.
