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!


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.
