    The Magic Of Christmas

    This week I am having some fun with the Three Pane Christmas stamp from High Hopes. I love the cute Santa, Reindeer and Snowman - there smiles are contagious aren't they? 
    Christmas is a magical time and it will be fun to give this card to someone on my card giving list!



    After stamping this adorable trio I coloured them with alcohol markers and added some bling to Santa's hat with Stickles. Next I cut the pleated circle die for the background and cut it in half. The stamp fit perfectly across the middle of the die but I wanted the circle to be a little bit smaller. From there, I stamped the sentiment and held my breath as I cut it in half. All of the paper and the circle die are edged with antique linen distress ink to give them a little extra pop. 
    I added some snowflakes and crystals to add what I am hoping is a bit of a magical feel. Some twine finishes off my card. 

    Card Recipe 
    Stamp: Three Pane Christmas - High Hopes Rubber Stamps

    A Merry Christmas Gnome!

    Thank you for joining me today as I share another creation from our new release called Christmas Gnome.

    As I said in my previous post a lot of my Christmas cards this year will be CAS (Clean & Simple) using Kraft cardstock as my base.  My friend just got back from the Netherlands and she brought me quite an assortment of patterned paper...oh la la!  On today's card I'm using a new Gnome paper from Polka Doodles....oh gosh I just love it!


    I paired today's card with the new Fun Merry Christmas sentiment.  I had fun playing with some different colours for this image.  I can't say that I have really done much of pairing BG's together with YG's....so it was interesting, but in the real the combo looks pretty cool or at least I think it does lol.

    Copic Colors
    Yellow Greens - YG99, YG97, YG95, YG93
    Blue Greens - BG49, BG13, BG11
    Beard - W5, W2, W0
    Skin - E000, E00, E01, E04 & R01
    Red - R37, R46, R24

    I hope today's post brightened your crafty spirit!

    Woodland Santa

    Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!


    It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Christmas. YAY!!!  This week, I used Woodland Santa - R098 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and a sentiment from our new release called O Christmas Tree - GLL002 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).


    To create the scene, I cut out various sizes of trees and then used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to colour them. I also cut out various layers of snow from Recollections - Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper. Other pieces from the same paper, I just tore for a variation in the snow. I ran all of the little trees and snow through the Xyron Creative Station which made it much easier to put the scene together. Lastly, I popped up the image and sentiment with 3M VHB - 2 sided tape.

I added some Crystal Stickles to the Penguin's hats and the candy cane. A fun die cut layered snowflake and some enamel dots finish off my card.

    Happy Holiday Quick Card


    Happy Sunday!

    Today, I'm stamping with the sweets! Gingerbread, of course! This image is Happy Holidays Quick Card. I colored it up for the front of my card, then stamped out a second of the cute gingerbread man for some accent (two cookies are always better than one!).

    In making my card, I took inspiration from the gingerbread. The lace was meant to mimic the icing on the cookie and the gems reminded me of gum drops!



    On the inside, of the card I’ve used the verse sentiment All That is Dear.

    Santa's Surprise

    Growing up the rule was when the presents were put under the tree we could  look at them but not touch them and definitely not pick them up! I can remember doing "watch for Mom duty" numerous times while my brothers picked up presents and tried to guess what was inside by the weight and shape. 
    Thankfully they usually didn't guess correctly and still got surprised by their gifts on Christmas morning. 
    "Santa's Surprise" paired with the "Peeking, Poking, Shaking" sentiment  brought back some fun memories and a few chuckles as I created my card. 



    After stamping Santa I coloured him with alcohol markers and cut him out using an oval die. I added some sparkly Stickles to his hat and coat trim - I love adding sparkle to my Christmas cards! 
    I chose paper from Echo Park for my base and cut the pieces to fit my design. Some fishtail banners - one in matching glitter paper - were perfect to add some detail. Matching sparkly ribbon and my fav - gumdrops - finish off my card. 

    Card Recipe 
    Stamp: Santa's Surprise - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
    Sentiment: Peeking, Shaking, Poking - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
    Patterned Paper: A Perfect Christmas - Echo Park

    Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Hammermill digital cover stock, oval die - Gina Marie Designs and Sizzix, Silver Wink of Stella, Star Dust Stickles, ribbon - Galena, gumdrops - YNS

    Merry Kiss-Moose!

    Hello HH Fans!
    Today's card uses an oldie but goodie called "Hopeful Moose" from High Hopes Stamps. I think he is just too sweet, waiting for someone to come along and kiss him under the Mistletoe LOL. I'm crossing my fingers for him!
    I decided to make a simple look card to showcase "Hopeful Moose". I took my A2 card base and ran it through my Bigshot using a Snowflake Embossing Folder to create a pattered paper look. Then I just added a strip of paper to match my coloured image from the Bo Bunny Little Wonders 6x6 collection. The sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "Merry Kiss-Moose". A few matching sequins and my card is finished!
