Hoot Hoot, it's Fab Friday!!! Before sharing with you another adorable image from the New Release - Spring 2016 Collection, be sure 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!!! Jane
To start, I cut the SVG files for the owl (point 7 file), celebration balloon (point 7 file) and the Hoot Hoot sentiment (point 7) on watercolour paper. I also cut the point 14 file for layering the Hoot Hoot sentiment as well. I used a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image and sentiment (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, Glossy Accents were applied on the owl's beak and feet to add some shine and dimension.
I decided on a piece of SU Black cardstock for the card base. The background cardstock is from Tim Holtz called Distress Woodgrain. I sponged some Gathered Twig Distress Ink on the Woodgrain cardstock to give it more of a tree appearance. The image was adhered to the card with foam tape on the upper half to make the owl appear like he is popping out of his tree hole. Foam tape was also applied under the balloons and sentiment for some added dimension. To complete this card, 4 black rhinestones were placed on the "o" parts of the sentiment and 3 beige rhinestones in the bottom left hand corner of the card. Also, a piece of Doodlebug twine-bumblebee was tied in a small bow around the balloon strings.

Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans! Spring finally seems to be here although we did have a chance of wet snow forecast for one morning this week! I am sharing "Blooming Friends" from the High Hopes Spring 2016 Collection. This cutie could be used for so many occasions - Birthday, Mother's Day, Hello...and so many more. I have chosen not to include a sentiment on this one until I have an occasion to use it for.
I started by colouring my image with alcohol markers and cutting it out with a stitched rectangle die. I used the next size up (die) and cut the patterned paper to go behind my image. The banners were cut with fishtail banner dies. A banner with a butterfly, some flowers and glitter gumdrops are the finishing touches for my card. I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the butterfly wings and the flower centres for a little bit of bling.

Howdy - MichelleO here again this week and I have been doing a little jammin' with the new image "Rocking Out" - and the coordinating sentiment "Rock On"
- OH and cut out with the coordinating SVG File... So Totally Loving
those matching SVG Files to cut out the image and the mat!!
had some fun coloring this one as you know I love to add a little
sparking to things! I colored with my Copics and then topped off the
drum set with some Ranger's Stickles! Yee Haw .. love how they look like
real glittered drums!
found papers from My Minds Eye Vanity Fair collection, and sewed down
with a zig zag stitch. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the
pattern paper then added some dots from Viva Decor Graphite Paint pen.
And the Copic colors used -
Really enjoyed coloring this one - Hope it gave to a little giggle and felt a little rock and roll!
