Get Well Soon!

Welcome HH Fans;

I'm certainly glad that it is Friday and the weekend will soon be here.  It has been one those weeks, when nothing seems to have gone right.  To top it off, I wasn't able to find where I put a craft item that I wanted to use on today's card. Hopefully, I will eventually find it.

For today's card, I used this adorable English Rose from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  After stamping the image on XPress It Blending Cardstock, I coloured it with copic markers using colours that I usually don't use.  I added some Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops to the roses and on the die, which didn't quite work out the way I wanted.  Nuvo High Gloss White Crystal Drops was used in the corners.

Supplies used:

Dear Spring......

I admit it, I'm winter weary and I have been thinking about Spring a lot! 
This week I decided to have some fun with my thoughts of Spring and make a card for Spring. Weird right?! but maybe if Spring knows how much it is loved it will think about coming a little earlier then usual....<wink> 

"Sitting Bee" and some fun spring coloured paper were perfect for my "thinking of you" card for Spring. 

I coloured this cutie with alcohol markers and hand fussy cut it leaving a thin white edge around the antennas. They were tough to cut and things went a little awry with the paper/scissor/knife combo I was using......sigh.........
Next I cut a piece of white card stock to size and cut a honey comb pattern die. I taped it on the cardstock using painters tape and used it as a stencil for my background. After I was done inking my background I added the sentiment using my Misit for perfect placement. 

All of the paper is lightly edged with antique linen Distress ink. 

Instead of throwing out my now blue honey comb pattern I decided it would be a perfect embellishment for this card along with some enamel dots and a pop of ribbon. I hope Spring likes her card and decides to come early!

Miss Zoe

Howdy - MichelleO here today and I have  a little bit of country.. Love Love Love these stamps from High Hopes Stamps. This is Miss Zoe ... and one cute little kitty! 

Adorable right? I colored with my Copics (colors below) And found some pattern papers from Paper Studio that I "quilted" with a zig zag stitch. You know Miss Zoe loves quilts right? And Doileys too felt just too perfect. I added the sentiment "Just Because" - well Just because! A few vintage buttons on the top corner for embellishments!

Copic colors used -

These country cards just make me feel all warm inside :0)  - happy!

Inside Spinner Card!

Hello HH Fans!
Today I am sharing with you my first "Inside Spinner" card inspired by Jennifer McGuire. When I saw her video I knew I wanted to try one of this cute interactive cards. I decide to make a Get Well Card and use the adorable "Valerie Nurse Angel" from High Hopes Stamps.
I decided to use papers from the Echo Park "Have Faith" 6x6 collection. I coloured my image with my Copic Markers and then fussy cut it out using my Brother Cut N Scan. I popped both the die cut and my image up with foam tape for extra dimension to my layers. I added Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen to the red cross, bandaids and her wings for a touch of sparkle.
On the inside is the surprise spinning element. I used the HH "Bandaid" to create the spinner with. All you have to do is wind it up before you close it and then when the recipient opens the card the bandaid spins and hopefully brings a smile to their face to cheer them up. The sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "Better Quickly".
Here's a short video of the card in action.
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E74, E77, E79
Bear: W1, W5, W6, W8, W10
Uniform: R24, R27, C1, B00 (wings)
Bandaid:E95, E97

Happy Stamping:
