Celebrate The Joys

I have one more fall, Thanksgiving themed card to share with you this month.
Fall is my favourite time of year and so is Thanksgiving. 

I am thankful for my family and friends, and I am grateful for the things I have accomplished and the challenges I have survived. This week's card is more of a simple layout then I usually do. I love this sentiment and I wanted to find a way to use it to have it be the focal point of my card along with a horn of plenty with lots of fresh produce in it. 




I cut my stitched oval circle and then using my Misti, stamped the sentiment. I cut a scallop oval to put behind it. After colouring my stamps with alcohol markers I hand fussy cut them. I added my stamps to patterned paper from Simple Stories and Carta Bella. Some twine and gumdrops finish off my card.

Birch Trees

Howdy - MichelleO here today - are you like me? Sympathy Cards are probably the toughest to make for many of us. But needed at times. I like to keep my Sympathy cards a bit more simple and focus on the image. The new High Hopes Stamps "Birch Trees" have so many uses. Fall... Halloween... Winter... and they worked well for this needed Sympathy card.


This is a large stamp - and fills my card nicely. I stamped out the image and colored with my Copics. Then found a piece of kraft card stock for the base and a piece of Prima pattern papers to use with it. I free hand cut the scroll side of the image and sewed it down with a zig zag stitch onto the pattern paper, then sewed around the entire piece with a straight stitch, then attached to the base. For my sentiment I used Whimsy Stamps dies Heartfelt Sympathy in a dark purple.  Really tough for me to do these simple non embellished cards, but important with this one.

I love this background stamp and as a stamp all on its own. To see all the new stamps at High Hopes Stamps click HERE lots of beautiful stamps and fun stamps!

Thanks so much -

Milton's Fall Harvest!

Howdy High Hopes Fans!
I'm stopping in today to share this adorable Fall card from High Hopes Stamps called "Milton's Fall Harvest". Milton just brings back memories of apple picking with my Grandparents! 
My design is fairly simple...... I stamped and used a stitched rectangle die to cut out Milton. Using my Copic markers I coloured Milton in. Then I cut a square and using my paper cutter, cut it in half diagonally. Then I just backed all my patterned paper with some matching cardstock, and assembled my card. Some ribbon and an apple brad finishes it off!
On the inside I used the High Hopes sentiment called "If Friends Were Apples". 
Copics Used:
E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E39
R35, R37
YG06, YG91, YG93, YG97, YG99
W1, W3, W5

Happy stamping! 
P.S. Thanks Donna for the stamp!! ;)

Pie

Happy Sunday!

Last couple of weeks I am into baking things. Love to spend time in the kitchen with my kids.. Cakes, cookies and other yummie goodies we've made.. 
So for this week I was inspired by all those delicious bakes and made a card to go with a cake for my parents ;)

I've used the lovely dessinpaper Walk in the forest by Maja Design. And while trying to figure out a better system for my ribbons I came across two lovely brown ribbons I knew I had to use for a Fall card.. Love the brown-orange ribbon, it matches the paper perfectly!


This cutie is Apple Mouse Pie
For colouring I've used Copics B000 B01 T4 T2 YG23 YG67 G07 E07 E29 E37 E55 E51

I added a few (homemade) felt flowers too.

There is still time to play along with our montly challenge!! Hop on over to our Challenge blogpost to find out how you can win 2!! free High Hopes Stamps!!

Poultry In Motion

Our friend Tom the turkey heard that Thanksgiving is coming soon and for some odd reason he has decided not to stay for dinner! This stamp just cracks me up!

This week's card features Turkey Getaway and the Poultry In Motion sentiment from High Hopes.  I made him into a slider card.......I mean he does seem to be in a hurry to get out of town after all!



After giggling through colouring my stamp I hand fussy cut him out and set him aside. I cut out the "sky" using a stitching and piercing mark circle die and added some die cut clouds. Next I used my slider die to cut out "Tom's" getaway path. 
I added a fence behind my sky, and added all of this to paper from Echo Park. Some ribbon, a couple arrows and some gumdrops finish off my card.

Willy One Eye and Spider Web Background

Howdy -  MichelleO here today and I am using one of the older Halloween images. This guy and I have a special bond.... This is "Willy One Eye"


I don't make a lot of Halloween cards - but Willy One Eye just cracked me up when I saw him years ago. Still makes me laugh every time I look at him.  I colored with my copics and then stamped out the sentiment that I love with him. For my background I just knew I wanted to use the brand new High Hopes Stamp "Spider Web Background" wonderful large background stamp. I stamped it directly onto the dark purple card stock with Memento White ink. Love how that white ink works on dark card stock so vibrant! I matted on a piece of Coredinations fiber paper.. fuzzy like paper that is fun to use. I sewed down the layers and used black card stock for the base. A few Enamel Dots just added a little more fun matching up with that bright green paper.

My Copic colors used -


There are so many fall halloween images to play with at High Hopes Stamps - Take a few minutes and pop over HERE and see for yourself... LOL a few minutes...

Thanks so much!
