Boo Crew in Frame

Howdy - MichelleO here today - This week for High Hopes Stamps I have "BOO Crew in Frame" Just the perfect amount of scary cute for Halloween!


I colored with Copics (colors below) Then I found some papers from Cloud 9 that have that Boo factor to them. Love the witches hats and candy corn... and they have a bit of sparkle to them. Love that. Black and Purple card stock match up well. All they layers are sewn down. For the Sentiment I used the High Hopes "Happy Halloween" with a EK Success Punch as the mat behind. A few Dots of Nuvo Black as little faux brads.

Love cute Halloween... LOL

Copic colors used - And sorry something was off I guess and it is a little blury.. oops.

Halloween Treats...(No Tricks)

Hello Everyone!

I have a fun project for you today and I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do.

It's clear that a few of us on the High Hopes Design Team have been inspired this month by Peeking Froggy. I'm not the first one to share my inspiration with this stamp this month, but hopefully I offer a slightly different view.

When I first saw the image, I thought it would be perfect for a holiday bookmark. But then I thought that it would also make a great chocolate bar wrapper. What to do??? In the end, I did both!!!


I chose to make a match set, so I started by coloring up my image three times. The bookmark is separate from the card and will probably soon occupy the book of a certain 2nd grader in my life.

The chocolate bar wrapper is a basic wrap. Because of the size of the bar, I made the bottom a "box" type closure. The chocolate bar just slides in, which means I can use it again (you know, just in case that bar "disappears" somewhere). I love this great candy corn paper with that image!


The card is hiding behind the bookmark and chocolate, so here is a close up of it. The purple colors in this are perfect! I don't often do Halloween cards, but Mr. Froggy here may change my mind! He's so much fun. The sentiment used on the front of my card is Special Treat.


I hope you enjoyed this fun project today! If you've been to the blog recently, you'll notice that we've got a New Release coming! Check out all the great new holiday images on September 26th.

Looking for more inspiration? You'll find us daily on the High Hopes blog, but you can also find us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest.

Have a perfectly lovely Sunday and we'll see you again next week!!

Boo-tiful Day

Poor Witchy Poo seems a little surprised by the guest who has dropped in to see her! Spiders aren't necessarily my favourite but my heart would definitely skip a beat if one just dropped down beside me like this! 
At least this cute spider is here to wish Witchy Poo and you a boo-tiful day! 





 This week I stuck with the traditional Halloween colours of orange and black except for Witchy Poo's fun hair and coloured her up with alcohol markers. 
I mixed patterned paper from Recollections and Authentique to create my card base. 
Next I cut a thin "frame" using a square die and edged it and all of the paper edges with black ink. The spider web and spider are from a fun happy haunting set and I added a twine bow to the web just for fun. The sentiment is  cut out using a fishtail banner die and the card is finished off with my favourite - gumdrops. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Standing Witchy Poo  - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Boo-tiful Day  - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Authentique, Recollections

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Hammermill digital cover stock, twine, fishtail banner - YNS, classic square die - Spellbinders, spider and web - YNS, gumdrops - YNS

Spectrum Noir Markers: FS9 BG5 BG7 BG10 PP1 CT1 CT4 GB5 OR1 OR2 OE3 PL2 PL4 LV2

Halloween Shaker Card!

Hi High Hopes Fans!
I haven't made a shaker card in so long and thought it would be perfect to use the High Hopes "Zig Zag Frame" and the little "Silly Spider" for a fun look.
I started by stamping my image, colouring it with my Copic markers and then using my Brother Cut N Scan, cut out around the image. I then cut out the inside along the border line with my craft knife to create a window. I glued a piece of acetate to the back of the image to create a window and then added foam tape. Next I added some sequins and some really cute tiny beads that my friend gave me! They are just so sweet! To create the "box" for the shaker, I then added a piece of paper to the back and voilá, I had a shaker! Using some Doodlebug paper from my stash (it's old and discontinued), I designed my card layout. Then all I had to do was attach the Shaker to the card! I added a fussy cut "Silly Spider" to the front with some twine so he can move around as you shake the card. Some Stickles and enamel dots finished everything off.
Here you can see the dimension on my card. I actually used 2 layers of foam tape so that the shaker elements had lots of room to move.
See those tiny beads....aren't they adorable!
Copics Used:
Pumpkin: YR15, YT16, YR18/ YG61, YG67/ Y15, FY1
Spider: T4, T7, T9/ BV08, FV2
Stars & Moon: Y15, FY1/ Y35, Y38
Frame Border: T7, T9, BV08, FV2, FYG2

Thankful Friends

Howdy - MichelleO here and today for High Hopes Stamps this week a Warm and Fuzzy one! Or Warm and Feathered? This is Thankful Friends - Such a sweet Thanksgiving image! 


I colored with my Copics and then shaded with Pencils. A very warm feeling color palette right? I cut out with a round Spellbinders Nestie and then found some older paper from K&Co. Juliane collection. I cut out, layered and then sewed together with straight and zig zag stitches. I matted the image with a larger circle with the same stripe pattern paper. I love that the paper has a clear glaze to it. Shines! It needed just a bit more, so I cut out four corner embellishments and then added some Nuvo decor pearl pen to the buckles and dots in the corners.

For the sentiment I used the High Hopes Stamps "Happy Thanksgiving"  Love this image just feels so Thankful!

Copic used -

Hope you enjoyed - there are so many wonderful holiday images at High Hopes Stamps! You can get to them all HERE

Sweet And Simple Autumn Card!

Hello Friends, 
Here is my easy handmade Fall card!

 This stamps it's beautiful and so fun to colored. I have to say I am totally in Love with this image and the sentiment I stamped on the inside of my card too.


Today I'm using "Funny Farm"  and "Too Many To Count" from Highhopesstamps.com

To make this card I started by stamping the image and colored with alcohol markers. I added glossy accent to the cow bell and doodle some lines with a white jelly pen. I want this cute image to be the star of my card, so I skip my usual embellishments.

Image is colored with Copics;
rooster C3 C5 C7 R29 R39 E31 E33 E37
pig E15 E25
sheep C1 C3 R11
cow E31 E33 E37 C3 C5

Here is the inside!
I used the same paper pattern for the inside of my card and add "Too Many To Count" for a sentiment. Thank so much for stopping by. Wishing you all a great Sunday.

Ready for October!

Today I have two projects for you, one for each of our upcoming October holidays!

First up is Thanksgiving, which for Canada falls in early October. This cutie is Lg. Turkey and he's a blast to color up! He's a fairly large image, so I had some fun figure out how to layer my papers behind him. Luckily, he has a smaller brother, Sm. Turkey, so if this guy is a bit big for your taste, you've got options! The sentiment I've used here is Happy Thanksgiving.


Of course, October wouldn't be complete without all 31 days, so I have for your a Halloween card too. I know my fellow Design Team members have been playing with Angel Bear Witch this month, so you know that she's a cutie! We just can't resist her! Angel Bear Witch has been paired on my card with Happy Halloween Script.




Check out our daily inspiration here on the High Hopes blog. We've got great ideas to kick start all your wonderful projects! You can also find us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest.

Have a perfectly lovely Sunday and we'll see you again next week with more great inspiration from the talented team at High Hopes Stamps.

BOO..........

Hi HH Fans;

For this month the DT Divas are sharing Fall and Halloween cards.  For today's card, I have used the cute Batty Boo along with the Zig Zag Frame from High Hopes Stamps.   Now, here is the thing -- my cards are 95% of the time CAS.  Since  I went a little outside of my comfort zone, I had a bit of a challenge.

After stamping both images on Copic XPress It Blending Cardstock, I coloured them with Copic Markers.   Batty Boo wasn't too difficult to fuzzy cut, now the Zig Zag Frame was another whole story.  Not only the outside border was cut, but also the inside area.  I was holding my breath hoping the scissors didn't slip and cut into the main frame -- this is where I'm thinking a ScanNCut might have been helpful, lol!  Once the frame was cut to my satisfaction, I trimmed a piece of the Bewitched Design Paper from Echo Park to fit the back of the frame.  It is hard to see but there are some clouds and stars on the design papers.

No Tricks

Halloween will be here before we know it and the little ones will be picking out the perfect costume for trick or treating. 
My card this week featuring Angel Bear Witch is all about the treats! I chose some non traditional Halloween colours for this one just for fun. 



After colouring up this adorable bear with alcohol markers and a few Prismas for shading, I cut it out using a stitched tag die. It is hard to see in the photo but I used some clear sparkle pen on the wings for just a touch of bling and I added some white polka dots to his gown just for fun.  Paper from Bootiful Nights by American Craft was perfect for my non traditional coloured card. I added the stamped tag with 3D foam pop dots for some dimension and twine and matte gumdrops finish off my card.

Sentiment: No Tricks - High Hopes Rubber Stamps

Angel Bear Clown

Howdy - MichelleO here today with more Halloween fun with High Hopes Stamps this week. This image is just cute! With the name "Angel Bear Clown" it is not a scary boo image at all.. just cute!


I found an older scrap paper of a starry night and thought it worked well with Halloween card. I sewed the layers down to a lime green card stock. On a black card stock base. Colored with Copics and then shaded with pencils. Then high lighted with some Nuvo sparkle.

Then a sentiment "Happy Halloween" that I cut in half to split the words to fit better.

Copic colors used -
