Fall Pumpkin Patch

Fall is just around the corner and that means the pumpkin patches will soon be open to pick the perfect pumpkin or pumpkins for your fall decor, Halloween or baking your favourite fall treat...pumpkin pie - yum! 

"Pumpkin Patch" from High Hopes reminds me of the fun days ahead. 



I coloured this fun stamp with alcohol markers and Prisma pencils for some shading. I originally cut this out with rectangle die......but I messed up the clouds so........fussy cutting it was! The background is created with some inked clouds and a grass tuft die and the stamp is glued on top. The sentiment is masked off from a larger sentiment and all the edges were inked with versa mark ink.  I kept the design of this one a little more simple to keep the focus on this gorgeous stamp. Paper from Simple Stories and Echo Park were perfect for a bit of a country feel. Some enamel dots and ribbon are the finishing touches.  


Card Recipe 
Stamp:Pumpkin Patch - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Happy Fall Y'all - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Bloom and Grow - Simple Stories, Fall is In the Air - Echo Park

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Hammermill digital cover stock, umber Versa Mark ink, cloud die - Quickutz, baby blue Memories ink, Stampin Up ribbon, grass tuft die - YNS, enamel dots - Gina Marie Designs

Spectrum Noir Markers:BY3 GB3 B03 MB3 CG1 DG2 YG3 BG5 BG7 BG10 TN1 CG3 CG4 JG5 CT1 CT4 GY4
Copics: E31 E77 E15 E18 E49

Wilson's Honey Farm

Howdy - MichelleO here and this week for High Hopes Stamps I took a dive into some yummy honey. This is Wilson's Honey Farm... love the delicious end of summer goodness of this one!


Such a wonderful image for many subjects, but when paired up with the High Hopes Stamps sentiment "Have a Honey of a day!" Just a friendly card to bring a smile or could be a "sweet" birthday card!

I colored with my Copics (colors below) and then added some pencils for shadows and layers. Then I added some Nuvo Clear for that gorgeous glass honey jar, and then Nuvo sparkle for the bee's wings.

Dark brown card stock for the base, then deep yellow core-dinations card stock for a mat and a old piece of pattern paper from Senic Route all zig zag stitched down. Then the same brown card stock for a mat on the image sewed together. A simple gingham brown and white ribbon around and tied for a bow embellishment. That sentiment is punched out with an EK Success ticket punch and then matted yellow card stock punch mat.

Copic colors used -


Love the Fall season and all the warm colors! And High Hopes Stamps has SO MANY fun and wonderful images to play with this time of year! Pop over to the website store HERE and see all fabulous images!

Thanks!


A Perfect Autumn Day!

Fall Pillow Boxes...Using Chubby Pumpkin!

Hi there and happy Sunday,
I have a set of "FALL" pillow boxes to share with you.
These pillow  boxes are fun to make and easy to mass producing!

My image is "Chubby Pumpkins" from Highhopesstamps.com 

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with Copic Markers. Once the image was color I fussy cut it leaving a small white border. Next I used my Sizzix Thinlists 660660 to die cut the pillow box. For my background I used a Sizzix embossing folder and a few distress inks. It's so hard to capture the look of the embossing folder in a photo.

To finish my project I added some sequins, gold ringtones, and the word Fall. Also added some sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen. Here is another project using this adorable image.

 Don't forget to check Facebook and Instagram for more amazing inspirations.
Have a BLESS day!

Welcome HH Fans;

Fall themed cards is the order of business and fun over on the High Hopes Stamps blog today.  One of my favourite things with fall is how all the leaves change from their rich green to beautiful shades of orange, yellow and red.  Once they dropped from the trees, it was so much fun playing in them.

Pumpkin Friends

I have a few friends going through some tough times and I am hoping this card will make one of them feel better or smile when they receive it. 


I had some  fun making a fall themed "hug in a card" using Pumpkin Border and Chubby Pumpkins from High Hopes. This is the first card I have made using a stamped border. I find it very challenging to find a way to use them to be honest. However, this card has started the border creative juices flowing so you may see more in the future. <wink>






After colouring my stamps with alcohol markers, I hand fussy cut them leaving a thin white border around the edge of the pumpkin border. Paper from MFT gave a subtle water color wash background and to me makes the card feel like a warm hug. I cut the border piece out using a stitched rectangle die - I had to cut the leaves on the edge to slip the die in behind the border to cut it. A matching stitched fishtail banner was perfect for the sentiment. Some ribbon and heart shaped sprinkles finish off my card. 


Card Recipe 
Stamp:Pumpkin BorderChubby Pumpkins - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: If Friends Were Pumpkins - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Water Color Washes - MFT

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Hammermill digital cover stock, shape sprinkles - Doodlebug, stitched rectangle die - YNS, stitched fishtail banner die - YNS, ribbon - Stampin Up

Spectrum Noir Markers: OR1 OR2 OR3 CT4 GB4 GB7 CG4 DG3 JG6 EB3 EB6 EB5

Harvest Harry and We're All Ears

Howdy - MichelleO here today with a little more Fall fun this week for High Hopes Stamps - And this week I pulled out one of my very first High Hopes Stamps that I bought many many years ago. I love this sleepy little scarecrow!


 This is "Harvest Harry"... Isn't he just adorable?? Now his two friends.. well that is a later addition to my stamps. But they are just as cute. They remind me of Heckle and Jeckle (love those cartoon characters!)  ... but this stamp is called  "We're All Ears"  Maybe they are junior Heckle and Jeckles?  Love them matched up with Harvest Harry! Then a little sentiment "Harvest Blessings" I stamped it all out and colored with my Copics. Then found scraps of Graphic 45 papers that have that warm fall feeling to them. Sewing it all together.

A few die cut corner and dots of Nuvo pen as faux brads. 

These images just make me feel happy and warm! High Hopes Stamps has hundreds .. or more :0) Stamps that make me feel all happy and warm!

Copic colors used


Thank you - 
 

Go Vegan!
