Stork with Baby Dragon

Hello High Hopes Fans

It's an AWESOME Saturday here, and time to share another one of my High Hopes Stamp cards for this week!!! 
Lisa
 
This is Stork with Baby Dragon (S223) and Welcome Little One Script (F239) sentiment.  Such an adorable stamp - I think it makes for a great baby card!
 
I started by stamping the image and sentiment with a Versamark Ink Pad and sprinkling some Black Embossing Powder on and heating it.  The Tombow Markers I used to colour the image were:  925, N35, N75, 850, N95, 990, 985, 192, 723, and 800.  Once the image was all coloured and dry, I proceeded to die cut the oval shape using a Spellbinders Die called Petite Ovals.  The larger Petite Ovals die was used with Grey Cardstock to cut a slightly larger oval for layering the image. Foam tape was applied to pop out the layered image and sentiment for some added dimension on this card.  The designer paper is from Echo Park-Bundle of Joy 6x6 Paper Pad, along with some SU Grey, Pink and White cardstock.  The Heart Banner die is from La-La Land.  It was used with Grey and Pink Cardstock. To complete this card, a Viva Décor - Black Pearl Pen was also used to add a couple of bunches of dots around the oval cut image.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Wade

Hello High Hopes Fans

It's finally Friday and I am excited to share another card I recently made, using a cute High Hopes Stamp!
Jane 
 
This is Wade (S132).  Awwwe...isn't he sooo adorable?!?!?!? I definitely think so!!!

I coloured Wade with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I added some Glossy Accents to the ducky tube, Wade's horns, water wings, and flippers.  This image was cut using a Spellbinders die called Classic Scallop Rectangle.  Liquid Pearls was applied around the edge of the die cut, to create a bit of a border.  The designer paper is from Carta Bella - Ahoy There, along with some Red and White Cardstock.  Red Taffeta ribbon was used to divide the different designer papers.  Foam tape was used under the image to add some dimension.  A few red and sparkly Doodlebug Sprinkles were applied to the top right corner of the card to complete this card design.
 
Supplies Used:
 
Ink - Tombow Markers - 856, 847, 098, 990, 925, 491, 055, and 528.  Versamark Ink Pad, Black Embossing Powder.

Surfer Dude Dudley - Lacey

Hello High Hopes Fans!!

It's Lacey here today and I'm sharing a card I made for one of our friend's 8th birthday.
She just learned how to surf so I knew I wanted to use one of the surfing images from High Hopes.
Since they are all "boy" images, I chose to make Dudley a Dudette by adding a glitter bow. 

I made a Zig Zag Card (Center Step Card). It's so easy to make and really makes an input. 
High Hopes Designer Kristine made this tutorial awhile go. 


The image was embossed in black onto watercolor paper and watercolored with Twinkling H2Os:


H2Os used:
Olive Vine, Sweet Alfala, Azure, Playful Peony, Nutmeg, and Bashful Blue

Happy stamping!

Sneakin' Up

                                        Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans!


This stamp just makes me giggle. I have some nephews..okay and a few men I know that would do this exact thing! Boys will be boys as they say. 

My card today features an older High Hopes stamp called Sneakin' Up (can be found here). I haven't put a sentiment on the front and at this point the inside is blank until I have an occasion to need a more masculine card for. 

                                                        Donna



I coloured my stamp with alcohol markers, sponged the sky and added some faux stitching with a brown marker. I double matted the, added my patterned paper and layered some banners. Some gumdrops, leather lace and a cute silver frog charm finish off my card. 

Spectrum Noir List 
Dragon: CG2 DG3 JG6
Belly/Horns: GC1 CG2
Frog: LG2 LG3 LG4 DG3
Jar and Lid: 1G1 1G2 1G3 1G5
Grass: LG1
Tree Stump: GB8 GB10 EB5

Now the question is..............do you think our friendly little dragon ended up catching the frog.....

If you would like to order Sneakin' Up or browse High Hopes Stamps, see the links below. Have a super day!

Red Hat Ladies - Friends Are We!

Howdy -

MichelleO here and this week I was going through my High Hopes Stamps and these two sweet ladies looked like they wanted to come out and be inked and used!

Now their name is "Red Hat Ladies", but they don't dress in red in purple every day. There is no rule that they can't wear other colors. So I went with pink/green/and tan.


All the color choices came from the colors in the Authentique paper pad collection Legacy. Love the vintage feel and that gave me great colors to use on the ladies. I colored with my Copics (colors below).  Now I love sewing on my cards, and do it on most all my cards. But these two seemed to need something different. It has been a while since I used a blanket stitch on my cards. I love it! But wow... lol, takes a while and lots of sewing. Thank goodness for my trusty machine. I used the sentiment "Friends are We..." Now this sentiment is much longer - Friends are we... just you and me!. I love to stamp it out and block out the last half and just use to the first three words on the front. Then stamp it again blocking out the first section and using the back portion "just you and me." on the inside. A little more drama... like a commercial break before you open the card.


I also added some punched leaves and mulberry flowers to the front. My flowers weren't near dark enough so I used my Copics and gave them a little deeper coloring.

Copic colors used -



Love making cards for girlfriends - and  "Red Hat Ladies" is too fun to work with.

Just Hanging Out!

Happy Tuesday!
Well Fall is on it's way and Halloween is right around the corner, so I am getting a head start on my "Halloween Stash"! I just love this little vampire from High Hopes Stamps called "Just Hanging Out". He's just adorable and the Bat is super cute too!
I used some Halloween themed paper from my stash and layered it with green cardstock to match his pants. I used my new Silhouette machine to make the adorable little card base from black cardstock.
Isn't the base so cute! I love how you pull up on the bat for a surprise Halloween greeting! The sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "Trick or Treat Greeting"!
Copics Used:
Face: E00, E11, R20
Head, shoes and cape: T3, T5, T7
Bat: W3, W5, W7
Branch: E43, E44, E47

Have a great day!
Happy Crafting

Hangin' With You!

Hello High Hopes Fans!

I have another older stamp image to share with you today.

This is Toucan Twosome!
The sentiment is Hangin with You.


I went with a bright, tropical palette for this card.
The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design Inc Flower Box 6 x 6 paper pad.



I colored the image with Copic Markers.
(C9-C7-C5-C3-C1-E57-E55-E53-Y15-Y02-Y-OR00-OR04-OR02-BG00-BG02-YG21-YG23-YG25)
I used the "out of the box" technique, which is where you cut a shape (in this case on oval) that is smaller than the image and leave some of the image like the branch and leaves "outside" the shape.



I hope you enjoyed today's card!
