Flower Frame!

Hello HH Fans!
Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the High Hopes stamp called "Thinking of You"! This is an adorable flower frame that comes with the sentiment. I chose to mask off the sentiment as I wanted to use the sweet little button in the center instead.
I used a simple layered design with a Loopy Square die cut frame. My papers are from the Bo Bunny "Sweet Clementine" 6x6 collection. A ribbon bow and some enamel dots finish off my card. 
Here you can see my popped up layers. I popped up the loopy frame and the stamped area, it just adds such a nice dimension to the card.
On the decorated inside I used the High Hopes sentiment stamp called "Quiet Hearts".
Copics Used:
Flowers: R20, R21, R32, R37, R39, C5, Y17
Leaves: YG17, YG23, YG67
Outline: B00, C4

Happy Stamping!

Supplies:

Hugs and Fishes

It is officially summer and time to hit the beach! 
Willy is underwater but taking advantage of the warmer weather to build his first sand castle of the season. 





After colouring all of the stamps with alcohol markers I hand fussy cut and used a classic circle die to cut them out. Next the card base was formed and the patterned paper pieces were cut and each piece was temporarily laid on the to the design so I could see how things looked. Bubbles the fish at the top was stamped on to the paper so I could get her bubbles included and then the fussy cut stamp was glued in to place. 
The sentiment was stamped and cut to fit and put in place using foam pop up dots.

Retired Raymond

Raymond is retired and happy that the nice weather is here so he can golf - his favourite thing to do.
I'm glad Raymond doesn't live where I do.....it has been so wet he wouldn't have gotten much golfing in yet, kind of like most of the people I know who golf. Hopefully the nice weather comes soon and stays so Raymond can it the greens. 




After colouring Raymond with alcohol markers and Prisma pencils I hand fussy cut him and set him aside. Next I found patterned paper from MME and cut the pieces to fit my design. I stamped the sentiment in weathered wood distress ink and threaded twine through it. I added Raymond and popped his golf ball up with a foam pop dot. Some matching enamel dots finish off my card.

Pig Party

Howdy - MichelleO here today and I have another fun Birthday card this week for High Hopes Stamps... this week I pulled out an older stamp "Pig Party" This little guy cracks me up. Now he doesn't have anything in his hoof... so he can hold a lot of different things... but I figured a cake kinda fit with this little piggie!


So I stamped the cake, then masked it off and stamped the pig over it to appear to be one image. I colored with my Copics (colors below) The Sentiments "It's Your Day!" and "Got Cake" are fun!
I sewed down the image to a pattern paper from Paper Studios. Love the Barn feel to it. A dark pink card stock as a base, and then I added some older mulberry flowers with silver brads.

Copic colors used -



Fun card... and now I am craving cake... Hmmmm.

Cast Away!

Happy Tuesday HH Fans!
Meet "Anthony James" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps! This adorable stamp reminds me of my Nephew when he was little at the Cottage. My Dad would take him to a small stream attached to a lake and let him fish. The sunfish were plenty and would bite often. It was perfect because young children don't have the patience to sit all day waiting for a bite.  Now they weren't very big fish but I bet if you ask my Nephew he's say they were huge LOL!
My design today is very simple with just a few paper layers. I used Designer paper from the CC Designs "Hearts and Dots and the YNS "Summer Plaid" 6x6 collection. A bit of natural twine and some Black Diamond Stickles on his buttons finish off my design.
Here's the decorated inside using more of the designer papers and a sentiment from the High Hopes "Sentiment Set #1".
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E04, E11, E21, E20
Hair & boots: E44, E47, E49
Outfit: YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99/ YR02, YR04, YR06/ Y21
Pole: E35, Silver Wink of Stella, N6
Fish: C0, BG57, BG78, BG96

Lizabeth Birthday Wishes

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending a card making class with my fellow DT Bev. We did 4 amazing fun fold cards one of which was an easel card. I haven't made an easel card for a while so it was a good reminder that I need to make more! It also reminded me that I wanted to try making a shaped easel card as well. 
I wanted to use Lizabeth Biking Angel on a Birthday card so I decided to put her on a circle easel card just for fun. 





I coloured Lizabeth with alcohol markers and Prismacolor pencils and cut her out using a pleated circle die and put a piece of matching card stock behind it. Some sparkly Stickles were perfect for her wings. 
 I cut the same pieces for the base and set them aside. Next I cut the base for my card and a piece of patterned paper slightly smaller then the base edge for both the top and bottom. 
Next I stamped and cut my sentiment, mounted it on a piece of matching card stock and popped it up with foam squares - this holds my top piece in place acting like a stopper. 
A cotton lace bow and some flowers finish off my card.

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Lizabeth Biking Angel - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Happy Birthday Script - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Spring Fling - Echo Park 
Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Hammermill digital cover stock, pleated circle die - Gina Marie Designs, Star Dust Stickles, cotton lace ribbon - stash, flowers - Poppies and Prairie, 3D foam squares - Forever In Time

Spectrum Noir Markers: FS9 IG3 IG5 TN3 TN5 TN6 CG1 DG2 CT1 CT4 AP1 AP3 PA2 GB1 GY1 GY5
Copics: E00 E11 BG11 BG13 BG15 C00 
Prismacolours: Light Aqua, Aquamarine, Cobalt Turquoise, Pink, Blush Pink, Deco Pink

Surfer Dude!

Happy Tuesday Everybody!
So Tuesday means it's my turn to post some inspiration over on the High Hopes Blog! With summer right around the corner, I thought "Bob's A Surfer Dude" from High Hopes was perfect for my post today. I have to admit Bob makes it look easy! When we were in Hawaii we took surfing lessons and lets just say I better just stay with card making a surfer LOL. It was a disaster! I don't think I even made it upright once! Hubby on the other hand was a natural!
I am using paper from an older Carta Bella 6x6 collection called "Beach Days". I coloured Bob and then paper pieced his swim shorts and surf board with paper from the pad. Then I used my Brother Cut N Scan to fussy cut out the image. I decided Bob needed to be on an action wobble for a bit of fun!
Here you can see the action wobble and some of the dimension I added to the card using foam squares!
I decorated the inside and added a sentiment from the "Sentiment Set #4" that matches my card theme perfectly!

Here's a short clip of Bob in action!
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E21, E95, R20
Hair: E31, E35, E47, E49, E57
Glasses: B28, B29
Waves: BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG02, white gel pen

Hang ten and.....
Happy Stamping!
