Merry Christmas Placecard holder -- High Hopes stamps

 Hi there and Happy Saturday. I'm back to share a little place card holder made with
High Hopes super cute Santa 
I like this Santa a lot and have used him in many projects. I decided to make a cut behind his hat which holds the banner.  A name place card holder  for a Christmas table could also be added to Santa's hands but I decided to use a greeting instead.

Basically the place card holder is made up of three parts. Everything was hand cut without any dies.  
A folded piece of cardstock, Santa image and a card that was traced around the image.
The folded cardstock goes between the card to hold it together and keep the image upright.

The image is coloured with Copic markers, liquid applique and a Christmas banner for some
festive fun

Get Well Soon!

Welcome Everyone;

Now that September is nearly over and the weather is getting cooler, that means more colds and feeling under the weather.

For today's post I made a CAS  card that could be used as a Get Well Card.  Instead of using design paper, I used Gina K. Designs Vibrant Vines Foil-Mates with a sheet of Brillant Blue Fancy Foils. This was then foiled using the Minc machine.  Unfortunately, the photo isn't showing the sparkle in the foil.

The image was stamped with Staz On Jet Black ink on some water colour paperand coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brushes.

Supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Garden Fence, Get Well Soon (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)
  • Ink:  Staz On Jet Black
  • Paper:  Strathmore Ready Cut Water Color
  • Gina K. Designs:  Fancy Foils - Brillant Blue, Foil-Mates - Vibrant Vines
  • Zig Clean Color Real Brushes:  075 - Brick Beige, 047 - May Green, 053 - Yellow Green, 803 - Lavendar, 081 - Light Violet
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops - Pale Gold

Winter Joy!

 For my inspiration post this week I decided to colour up a fun winter stamp called Candy Cane Penguin. How fun is this penguin - he sure is happy!!! 
Sometimes you just need to jump for joy - no matter what the reason, just jump and let out pure and outrageous joy! 

 First I coloured up my winter background and added some Stickles to some of the snow flakes and snow banks. Then I coloured the penguin and fussy cut him leaving a thin white edge. Since he is sooo happy I decided to put him on an action wobble so he wiggles and jiggles.
The sentiment is a wood cut out that is coloured with a red sparkle pen - the sparkle is hard to see in the picture but it really is sparkly! 
Some twine and sparkly gumdrops finish off my card.

Medicine Man

Howdy - MichelleO here today and around here it is getting to be that time of year... where get well cards are in great need. And I think High Hopes Stamps Medicine Man is one of my favorites! Even when you don't feel well he can stir up a smile!
 I stamped out the medicine man and then masked him off an stamped out his "bubbling brew" all good doctors need a get well brew! Then I colored both with my Copics (colors below)  The Sentiment is a must with these image... especially for the smile. "Get Well Soon, Or I'm calling the Dr.!" ok.. it makes me grin.

I found a scrap piece of My Minds Eye paper and matched it up with a Core'dinations yellow card stock mat and a dark brown base. I then cut out a Spellbinders die for some leaves and vines look behind the image. Everything is sewed down.

For a little dimensional  look and some bling I added yellow Rangers Stickles to the Fire and Nuvo to the brew, then Nuvo bright white to the "bones" the Medicine man is wearing... LOL

The copics used -

Hopefully this will make a special someone feel better - and to have more grins pop over to the High Hopes Stamps website and see all the fabulous images you can have fun with! HERE

Hello HH Fans!
Today I am sharing something that's totally out of my comfort zone! I tried my hand at watercoloring this beautiful image from High Hopes called "Farm Background" with a watercolour paper palette. I still need lots of practice but I have to admit it was fun!
 I started by stamping the image onto some watercolour paper and then using the palette, a brush and some water coloured it in. After it had time to dry I cut out the word "Fall" and added the letters back in with foam tape to create an "Eclipse" card. A bit of Designer Paper behind the image and some enamel dots finished it all off.
The Watercolour Palette is basically a sheet of paper with some small dots of water-colour paint. It was neat to try the Paper Palette's and I think you could easily make your own to take easily with you.

Until Next time......
Happy Stamping!
