Zoe's Purrfect Day

I have a few cat lovers in my life who sometimes need a pick me up card sent just so they know I am thinking of them.

Miss Zoe and her cute kitten are perfect for this type of card! 



After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers, I hand fussy cut it leaving a thin white border. I added it to the matching card stock and cut around the stamp again. I decided to use some patterned paper that had kind of a country feel to it, I thought it was perfect for this card. The sentiment was stamped directly on to the patterned paper - love my Misti! and some matching gumdrops finish off my card.

Miss Liberty and Belle

Howdy - MichelleO here today - This week for High Hopes Stamps I was looking through my boxes of High Hopes Stamps.. yes. I love my High Hopes Stamps and have more than a few.... LOL. I found one stamp that I realized I had never inked before. Insert Shocked Face here! How did I ever not ink this pretty little girl? And now is the perfect time to get those 4th of July cards made.

This is Miss Liberty and Belle -


Isn't she just the most little patriotic gal you have ever seen? I colored with my Copics (colors below). I used a scrap of the red dot I used last week, with a Blue Core'dinations cardstock. I punched out a loop punch from Martha Stewart for a border.

The sentiment is also a High Hopes Stamp - "God Bless America" Love this sentiment! Then I added a few sparkle enamel dots for a bit of bling.

Copic colors used -


I hope you enjoyed my little patriotic card -

Hoping Your Day is as Special as you are!

Welcome HH Fans;

Well it seems that we have had a very short Spring and now are into the first hot weekend, even though it isn't officially summer yet.

Seeing mother nature at its' best is one of my favourite things during the spring and summer; especially the colourful hummingbirds.  Today's card can be used as a birthday card or one of those you want to send as "Just Because". 


After colouring the Hummingbird (High Hopes Stamps) using copic markers, I added some Silver Moonlight Nuvo Glitter Drops to the edge of the wing and tail.  I just added it as a thin layer to add a bit of glitter.  On the leaves I added some Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Yes, I am addicted to the Nuvo products -- they are so versatile.  I wet the outside edge of the Mulberry Paper with water and did a gentle tear all around to give a bit of a ragged look.

It seems like Spring has finally arrived! One of my favourite things about Spring is when the birds come back into the neighbourhood.
I have a tree in one of my flower beds that often becomes the home for a nest and some baby birds. It is fun to watch the Mom feed to the babies and to watch the babies as they learn to fly. 

The Fancy Birdhouse 1 stamp reminded me of this fun part of Spring and I added the Landing Birdie as she seems to be coming home.



I coloured the stamps with alcohol markers and hand fussy cut them. Next I cut my doily and circle and added some clouds using a cloud die, dauber and ink. Then it was on to my computer to create my sentiment, print it and cut it out using the matching circle and doily dies. Some ribbon and gumdrops finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Fancy Birdhouse 1Landing Birdie -  High Hopes Rubber Stamps

Patterned Paper: Hello Easter and Dots and Stripes - Echo Park

Rosie's Ride

Howdy - MichelleO here and I have been having so much fun with this image from High Hopes Stamps - Rosie's Ride. Isn't she adorable? Or is it that little goat that has me grinning? :0)


I found some older scraps in my box and sewed down the layers - And attached to a cream colored base. Love the red dots paper with those roses. The sentiment "Thanks!" is a favorite of my High Hopes Stamps. 

I colored Rosie and her goat with my Copics (colors below)


Love these colors, they just make me smile so happy! Then add roses and a goat and that just makes it extra special .

Make sure to visit the High Hopes Stamp Store and see all the FUN images they have to play with. You can pop over HERE.

Tropical Santa!

Hello HH Fans!
Everybody deserves a little R&R especially Santa after a busy Christmas season! "Tropical Santa" from High Hopes is doing just that! I think he's even got a bit of a tan!
I decided to use paper from the American Crafts "Sunny" 6x6 collection. I got my Sketch idea from "Lili of the Valley Sketches". There are lots of wonderful 6x6 sketches over there to choose from. I added the HH "Just Arrived" sentiment to show that "Tropical Santa" just arrived for his much needed vacation. 
On the inside I created the sentiment on my computer. I am using a Ring Frame die on the inside with more of the Designer Papers. I used some of the circle cutout on the front of my card. I always try to use up my "scraps" when I can!

Copics Used:
Skin: E11, E33, E51, R20
Hair: N1, N3, N4, N7
Pinks: RV04, RV06

Last weeks Mothers day

Happy Sunday!!

Today I'd like to show you the card I gave my mother last week for Mothers Day. 
This image is easily to use for so many occasions! Not only for Mothers Day, but if you add your own sentiment to it, it can be a birthday card, a graduation card, a card for a new home... you name it!! 
The image is called Terri's Flower Cart.


I wanted to give this card a rustic look by adding some ribbons, twine and a bunch of paper flowers. The little wooden heart is my finishing touch.
The sentiment is a Dutch one and it says: Happy Mothers day!

Copics used:

Swaddling Baby Boy

Howdy - MichelleO here - and for High Hopes Stamps today I had a little inspiration...

This stamp is a totally adorable image and a must have the perfect baby card! This is "Swaddled Baby Boy"


This little guy is such a cutie... I love paper piecing with this one. That blanket just screams out to match up to the pattern paper. So decided to only use on piece of pattern paper and make it pop sort of. A cream card stock, and the piece of green dot pattern paper for the card. Then I stamped the image on the pattern paper and cut out the blanket and glued it to the image. I sewed the image down with a zig zat stitch. For the corners I punched out a corner punch and then cut it to fit inwards in the card. Heart shaped pearls for the corners.

The sentiment is High Hopes Stamps "It a Boy"  is perfect with that little heart that I just had to add a little pink color too. Simple card, but some images just need to stay the focus - don't you think?

Copic colors used -


 Babies are such a blessing... we had a bouncing baby goat born here on the farm this week. That was the inspiration for today's card ;0)  - Love babies of all kinds!

Thanks so much for looking -
