Halloween Fun -- High Hopes New Release



Hi there, Its new release day over at High Hopes, Yippie!!!!
I'm super excited to share my Card today....

Introducing ....Frankie and Bride from High Hopes Stamps found here!

I love Halloween!!! :) 



This card was created on a 5.5" base. and used the High Hopes sketch for this month.   The image is coloured with Copic markers, sewing stitches, cobwebs and spiders for added Halloween fun.  The pattern papers on the that kinda reminds me of eyeballs and though it went nice with the background papers :)

Thanks for looking and please check out the New Release from High Hopes.




Elvira & Friends

Hey Stampers!
Happy Saturday and an even happier RELEASE DAY!!

High Hopes Stamps Fall/Winter Release is happening right now and available for shipping.

Today I'm sharing this sweet little card featuring Elvira & Friends


I created this card using background papers from the new Buncha Scraps Frank & Friends Pattern Papers for the Halloween Season and High Hopes Stamps Rubber Stamp "Elvira & Friends" from the New Fall/Winter Release. 



I stamped my image using Stazon Jet Black and my Misti Stamping Tool
I then colored her with Copics: E00 E11 E13 E15 YR15 YG61 & Spectrum Noir: CG1 LV2 IG10

I added some Blossoms from Prima, which I got from One Crazy Stamper & Wild Orchid Crafts. The picture may not show it very well, but I also placed some teeny tiny iridescent stars randomly around Elvira and on the Razzleberry Stars Paper.

I also took High Hopes Sketch Challenge for this Release.

Two Peas In a Pod

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

It's Friday and the last day of September already!  I have one final baby card from this month's Baby Boom Release to share with you today.  Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Website tomorrow as the Winter/Fall Fun New Release will be available.  There are some fabulous new stamps coming out, just in time for Halloween and Christmas!  Come check them all out...
 Jane
 
This is Two Peas In a Pod (SS019) and Like Two sentiment (HH028).  Such an adorable image to say the least!
 
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, glossy accents were applied on the little girl's hair bow. The image was cut using a Spellbinders Petite Ovals Small Die.  The Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large die was used to cut a piece of SU Pretty In Pink cardstock to layer it.   

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Garden Green cardstock. SU White and Pretty In Pink cardstock was cut for the layering pieces on the card base.  The designer papers are from MFT-Trail Mix and Echo Park-Bundle of Joy, A New Addition 6x6 Paper Pads.  The sentiment was heat embossed with SU Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder. A strip of SU Blushing Bride Ribbon was added behind the main image, separating the two different designer papers.  Foam tape was used to adhere both the image and sentiment for some added dimension.  A couple of mini clothes pegs were attached to the sentiment - similar to baby clothes hanging on a clothes line.  To complete this card, three YNS gumdrops were added.   
 
Supplies Used:
***Note: If you are in need of any products used here, please send Lora at OCS an email and I'm sure she would be happy to get the item(s) you are looking for.
 
Ink - Tombow Markers - 126, 158, 977, N35, 990, 992, 772, 942, 850, 800 and N95; Versamark Ink Pad, SU Wild Wasabi & Black Embossing Powder; SU Pretty In Pink Ink Pad for sponging the edges of the image (oval).

Welcome Little One

                             Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans!


My post today features and older High Hopes stamp called "Just Bein Nosy" and the sentiment "Welcome Little One". How cute are these two nose to nose meeting each other. 




I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and cutting it out with a stitched rectangle die. I cut a die from Spellbinders and cut it apart to create the "frame" around my stamp. The edge of the stamp and patterned papers were given a bit of edging with distress ink. I added my sentiment and a few matte gumdrops to finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Just Bein Nosy (M030)
Sentiment: Welcome Little One (F239)
Patterned Paper: Colorblok and stash, Resplendent Rectangles - Spellbinders, Stitched Rectangles Die - YNS, Spring Grass Matte gumdrops - YNS

Spectrum Noir Markers: 1G1 1G2 FS5 FS2 TN2 PP1 PP3 PP5 TN3 TN 6 TN7 CG1 DG2 DG3 


There are only a few days left to hop on over to the High Hopes website to pre-order the new Winter/Fall Fun release - 20% off until Sept. 30th.

Crawling Baby Boy

Howdy - MichelleO here today and with the new Baby Boom Release at High Hopes I have just been ga ga over coloring up and these cute babies. Since I worked with a baby girl card last week. This week I went with a little boy, blue and green colors. This image is Crawling Baby Boy.


Isn't' that a adorable little face? Well and that crawling with that little rear end up in the air. Colored with Copics (colors below) and then I matched it up with the papers from Authentique Cuddle Boy Papers. I sewed all the layers together with a zig zag stitch. Added three buttons and the the High Hopes Sentiment "It's a Boy" -

Copic colors used -


Hope you got a giggle out of the crawling little cutie -

Thanks so much for looking -

We Wish you a Merry Christmas -- High Hopes Stamps

Hi there, I'm back again to share a sweet baby and lamb image from High Hopes Stamps. This is such a beautiful scene for Christmas.  
Made with ...

The image is coloured with Copics and some stitches were added around the border of the card, sentiment and  image.  I love this scene and can see using this image for Easter, Christmas and sweet baby designs too.
The star is very glittery as Stickles were added for some extra bling.

I decided to use the Copic Airbrush on the card for some soft touches of colour. This Christmas design has no red and green, just some silver and gold details for a unique, non traditional feel .
Copic Markers # YG0000,R00,YG67,YG63,YG00,E21,C3,0,YG03,E000,B91,B97,B93
