Gnomies

Happy Sunday!! 

Sunday.. the best day of the week for some chillin'.... 
Today I have some company from these adorable Gnomies!! Hey, hey!

I've coloured the 3 Little Garden Gnomes twice, so I could cut the image to fit the frame perfectly.. The frame is a die from My Favorite Things (part of it). I really wanted to get the photo booth frame feel at this card and I like how it turned out!
And of course the Chillin Gnomies sentiment..


Behind the frame there is a stroke of blue glittery paper and I've added some Pearl Maker drops in light and dark blue. The dots on the hats of the Gnomies are made with a Posca marker.

Copics used:

High Hopes Magical Moments!

Hi there, Happy Saturday :) 
Thanks for peeking in today. I've been creating with the following stamps....
I used Kraft paper as a back ground on 
this design.  The image is fussy cut and coloured with 
Copic markers.  Glossy accent were used for added texture and
some shine too. 
Sewing stitches were added using an old  sewing machine and the castle up on the hill is a die cut that I knew would come in handy one day!  :)

Imagine...

Hi there HH fans;

Well another week has come and gone, and it is time for my Friday post.  For today's card I have used one of the adorable stamps from High Hopes Stamps "A Magical Day" release called Little Wizard.

I am in the process of reorganizing my craft room and now have the embossing folders in a basket sorted by vendor, instead of buried somewhere in a drawer..  I used the Splatter embossing folder from Taylor Expressions and inked it up with the Weathered Wood Distress Ink.

Supplies used:

Leave Room In Your Garden

I have one more magical card to share with you from the A Magical Day release.  This card was inspired by my fellow DT member and dear friend Cheri. A couple of weeks ago Cheri posted an acetate front card - you can see her card here. I haven't done one for awhile so I decided to try one again using this sweet Butterfly Fairy. 




I coloured the stamp with alcohol markers and fussy cut it leaving a thin white edge. I love glittery wings on my fairies so some Crystal Stickles were perfect and she is popped up using foam pop dots. 
Next, I held my breath and did some ink blending right on the inside of my card base - yes I held my breath and hoped I didn't mess anything up! 
Next I cut out my fence, grass, clouds and flowers using dies and created the base for my front and added a piece of acetate. Again holding my breath, I added my sentiment to the inside of my card using my Misti - love my Misti! 
Some gumdrops finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Butterfly Fairy-  High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Leave Room - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Gingham Galore - MFT 

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, Stampin' Up inks, Tim Holtz ink blending tool, Crystal Stickles, Spring Grass, Puffy Clouds, Fence and Lampost dies - YNS, Foam Pop Dots - Forever In Time

Dragon Pals

Howdy - MichelleO here - and today for High Hopes Stamps I made a colorful cute card with the new Dragon Pals stamp. A fun image for a young birthday card don't you think?


I colored with my copics (colors below) and then I added lots of Ranger Stickles, I thought a dragon needed to have some sparkle to him too.  For my sentiment I added the new "Imagine" stamp. Imagine... Dragon Pals! LOL I found an older piece of Fiskars glitter paper I used for my pattern paper, I sewed all the pieces down to a grey mat. Three enamel Dots for embellishment.

Fun image to play with -

Garden Gnomes!

Hi HH Fans!
Today I got to play with these "3 Little Garden Gnomes" from the New "A Magical Day" Release over at High Hopes Stamps. As a child I used to love to read all about Fairies and Gnomes and part of me still believes in them! And that sentiment..... how cute is that "Chillin Gnomies"?!!
I am using papers from the Pebbles Woodland Forest 6x6 collection. I stamped the sentiment and then cut it apart to add to my card for a bit of a different look. The Mushroom Border goes perfectly with these adorable Gnomes! I used a Spectrum Noir Glitter pen on the trim of their hoods and the flower. You'll also find Glossy Accents on the magic ball.
Copics Used:
E00, E11, E21, E43, E47

World's Best Father!!!

Hi there,
 High Hopes Stamps friends!

Are you guys getting ready for Mother's Day and Father's Day?
 High Hopes have so many awesome images for every occasion of the year!
Today I bring you a Father's Day card using one of my favorite images.

This handsome guy is "Bob Loves His Motorcycle" and one of the sentiment from "Sentiment Set #3".

I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo black and colored with alcohol markers. I chose to die cut the main panel with a Lawn Fawn rectangle die and pop it with 3D foam tape. I purchase some shades of blue cardstock and a set of stitched squared dies. Love them! To finish I stamped the sentiment three times and light blue, dark blue and yellow cardstock and fussy cut it making a dimensional sentiment.

Make a wish

Happy Sunday!!

We are enjoying a nice warm week here over in the Netherlands (29 degrees yesterday!!) and with warm temperatures it seems my coloring is getting a bit sunny too.. 

For today's card I've used the Fairy Garden along with the Butterfly Fairy and the Make a Wish sentiment from the latest release..
I've duplicated some of the flowers of the Fairy Garden background and I've extended the stone path and the river to match the base of the card.. 


I've added a action wobble behind the Fairy for some fun on the card ;) 
The shaped card is made by a die from Studio Light.

Magical Moments....

Welcome HH Fans;

For today's post, I have used the "Wizard in Training" from the High Hopes Stamps latest release called "A Magical Day".   It would be nice if she could do some magic that would bring us some spring.

Today's card is on the clean and simple side.  The two side panels were created by using the Vintage Border Hot Foil Stamp and the GoPress and Foil machine to foil them.  This machine can foil embossing folders as well as wafer thin dies.

Fairy Garden Magic

This week my card features the Fairy Garden and Twinkle Fairy from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

I have heard you have to be very, very quiet and pull the plants back slowly and if you're lucky, very lucky you will see a magical garden. I chose to put my garden behind a circle cut out to mimic that. 




Both of these stamps are coloured with alcohol markers and the fairy is hand fussy cut. I added some sparkle to her wings with Stickles and to some of the flowers in the garden. I wanted to keep my paper on the more subtle side to keep the focus on this beautiful garden and fairy. Some branches and sparkle gumdrops finish off my card.

Twinkle Fairy

Howdy - MichelleO here today for High Hopes Stamps I made sure to have lots of bling. The new Twinkle Fairy HAS to have lots of bling.. every fairy does! 


She is colored with my copics (colors below) and then LOTS of Ranger Stickles for that bling. My paper is an older piece of Scribble Scrabble That I sewed down with a zig zag stitch. The sentiment is also new from High Hopes - "Leave Room in Your Garden for the fairies to dance"

Then I needed a little garden.. so I added some Martha Stewart leaves punches and Mulberry flowers.

I like how fun my card with all the bling came out. No matter what mood you are in a Fairy flying over with lots of bling can make you happy!

Copic colors used -


I hope you enjoyed too!
