Howdy - MichelleO here and today for High Hopes Stamps I have another Valentine. I LOVE Valentines Day! Hubby's Birthday and our Wedding Anniversary so a big day for sure! So making Valentines is so much fun for me.
This card is with the "Shower of Love Teddy" - Fabulous fun image with the sentiment already made in it!
My card is a bit simpler - but I am planning for a guy so I went calmer than I normally do.
Simple layers, that I rounded the corners on image and pattern papers. The image is colored with my Copics (colors below) and then for that cloud I added some Nuvo clear sparkles. Adds some depth to the cloud sort of.
A gauze ribbon around the middle with a large bow tied to one side. These Valentine images at High Hopes really do make me happy. They have a slightly vintage feel to them and are so fun to color.
Copic colors used -

This year I have given myself a challenge. Okay, full disclosure - I give myself this challenge every year and I have yet to meet the challenge but I am determined this is the year! I never seem to have enough birthday cards in my stash for the family and friends I need them for so I have challenged myself to make at least one birthday card a month. We are almost at the end of January and I haven't made one yet so I am sharing a clean and simple (CAS) birthday card featuring "Willow" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

I have a lot of "men" in my life that I need cards for. One of those men is my younger brother who got a new "toy" last year. He doesn't drive it a whole lot but it has a ton of horse power and when he took me for a ride it didn't take much to set me back in the seat.......I loved it!!! This new car opened up an opportunity for my brother and nephew to go to a driving school to learn exactly what the car is capable of. They were just there last week so I haven't heard how things went....but there have been a video and photos posted and it looked like they had an amazing time.
The new car and the opportunity it has brought to my brother were the inspiration for my card featuring "Sports Car 1" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I am sure that last week was just the beginning of a number of adventures!

A good friend was just telling us that he had found a large bee hive on his property. He even got a bee suit to be able to work around the hive safely. Well I must have had that conversation in the back of my mind when I saw this image and just had to color it! This is Wilson's Honey Farm -
Love the tiny little bees! I colored with Copics (colors below) and then added some sparkles to the honey. The pattern papers are from My Mind's Eye (Miss Caroline) collection. Sewing the layers down with both zig zag and straight stitches. For a sentiment High Hopes Stamps "Have a Honey of a day!" Such a sweet card for a friend! Punched the sentiment out with a EK Success punch, then used a Copic for a faux mat around the punch.
Copic colors used -
Such a happy card! For LOTS of other happy images pop over to the High Hopes Stamps web store HERE and fall for so many for yourself!

This week I decided to challenge myself. I am feeling a little creatively challenged so when that happens I give myself a challenge or in this case 2 in hopes of kicking my creativity in to gear. The first challenge I gave myself was to use a colour of paper I don't use very often - in this case pink, and the second challenge was to do a more clean and simple card than I usually do with the stamp I chose to use. My card features "Prancing Pup" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps and is perfect to send to someone who needs a pick me up.

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Mother Nature blessed us with a blizzard so our Christmas got pushed out by a few days but it was good!
I have decided to start the new year with a smile. My card features "Hedgie Stack" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. These two just make me smile and this stamp is one of my favourites. My goal this year is to send out more of this kind of card to bring a smile to whomever needs it.
