Happy Harvest

Hi there crafty friends and welcome!
Today I have an Autumn card using "Annie's Bushel"

I made this card by stamping this beautiful image on smooth Copic friendly paper. The ink I used was Memento Tuxedo black. I colored with a variety of Copic Markers and fussy cut it leaving a small white border. To make the background I used some tiny leaves and stamped with different color inks.

To finish my card I used foam tape to give my image some dimension. Lastly I used different sizes and color sequins. I hope you have enjoy my card today!!!

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

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!
