Pumpkin Patch

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

TGIF!!!  As summer nears the end, the air starts to feel a bit more crisp and harvest season is near.  I am excited to share another fall card with you today.
 Jane
 
This is Pumpkin Patch (S152).  I just love the country appeal this stamp has!
 
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 added on the lettering of the sign and on the crow's beak and heart.   

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Always Artichoke cardstock and the layering piece is SU Kraft cardstock.  The designer paper is from Simple Stories-Take A Hike 6x6 Paper Pad.  A sponge dauber with a SU Chocolate Chip Ink Pad was used to sponge ink around the edge of the image and layering piece, to give the card a more country/rustic look.  Foam tape was applied to the main image to help make it pop out a bit and add some dimension.  To complete this card, some strips of twine with a bow was added, along with a few sparkling clear sequins. 
 
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 - 055, 985, 925, 933, 126, 195, 245, 847, 905, 969, 977, 947 and N45; Versamark Ink Pad, Black Embossing Powder, SU Chocolate Chip Ink Pad for sponging edges.
 
Paper - Simple Stories-Take A Hike 6x6 Paper Pad, SU Always Artichoke & Kraft Cardstock;  Watercolour paper.
 
Thanks for stopping by!  And I hope you come back to visit soon!!!

This stamp can be used for fun as I have or it is perfect for Halloween cards.

Close Up


I started by colouring my image with alcohol markers fussy cut him out. I cut out a stitched fishtail die tag and did some ink blending and added some fun burlap print with a stencil. The sentiments were created on my computer.

Harvest Harry

Howdy - MichelleO here today and it is feeling like Fall around High Hopes Stamps - one of my first fall stamps at High Hopes stamps was Harvest Harry - love this guy -


 My kind of scarecrow... just snoozing while on the job. Wonderful! I colored with my Copics (colors below)  Matching up with papers from Farm House Fair Skies collection. Wonderful Rich colors. I sewed down the layers, and the cut out the image and matted it and cut around it. I used the High Hopes "Happy Fall y'all" LOVE that Y'all! I added three buttons - and then added some Martha Stewart Leaf and branch punches. Topped off with three mulberry roses in fall colors.

Copic colors used -


 Hope the Fall weather is coming soon and things are cooling off where you are! Coloring it up to bring it faster!

Have a wonderful day -

Country Harvest!

 Happy Tuesday!
We are still celebrating a Fall/ Halloween theme over on the High Hopes Blog. Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the "Country Harvest" stamp!
I love the little Fall theme of this stamp and it was so fun to colour! I added some brown mesh type ribbon, a leafy flourish and some flowers to finish off my card. In the middle of the flowers I used some YNS gumdrops. I also added Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to the apples and pumpkins.
The little wooden sign comes blank and I added the "Fall" using a stamp from my stash. The Hello is die cut from some MFT cork sheets. I cut out two and glued them together for added dimension.
Here you can see the popped up dimensions to my card.
Copics used:

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!
