Dream Big -- High Hopes Stamps

It's new release time over at High Hopes Stamps!!
Today I'm creating with ...
 The image is coloured with Copic markers. I made a little shaker with
some tiny stars added.  I though the stars gave the card a magical feel to the design! Buttons, twine
and a ric-rak frame were all add to the card. The background pattern paper is Halloween  paper with a vintage twist!

Welcome to the new "A Magical Day" release at High Hopes Rubber Stamps! 
Gnomes and fairies, and dragons OH MY!!!!!!!!! This release is full of magical stamps and matching sentiments! Be sure to use the link above to go directly to the website to see the full release! 

The design team will be sharing lots of magic with these new images - you won't want to miss a day! 

I so excited to introduce you to the oh so cute "Wizarding Gnome"! How cute is he!?! I wonder what he is up to.............

I wanted to create a magical themed background and yet keep it somewhat subtle if that makes sense. After colouring up the stamp with alcohol markers, I fussy cut him leaving a thin white edge and popped him up with foam dots. Some sparkle pen added to the stars and ball were perfect for a little bit of magical bling. Sparkly dangling stars made with a stencil and Stickles add to the magic - although it didn't quite work out perfectly <wink>. 

The sentiment was stamped directly on to the background paper. Then I masked off the stamp and to just get the stars and added them in three different places to keep the theme going through out the card. A few of the small stars have Stickles added to them too, it's just kind of hard to see in the photo.

Garden Lamb

Howdy - MichelleO here today and I have been feeling a bit of Spring.  Color and the Sun! For my card today I pulled out a sweet Spring image from High Hopes Stamps - "Garden Lamb"

How cute is this little Lamb and that sweet little chick? I colored with my copics (colors below) and then found a piece of pattern papers from PION in my stash that was just as sweet as the little lamb. I sewed the layers down and used a kraft card stock for my card base. Three enamel dots that have glitter at the top and then for my sentiment I used High Hopes  "Spring is in the Air" Fabulous sentiment for this time of year!!

Copic colors used -

For so many great fun images to color and share! POP over to the High Hopes Stamps website HERE and enjoy!

Love Bandit

Happy Sunday!!

I have this stamp for ages, but it sat in my stash uninked also for ages... 
Time to give The Love Bandit a place on a card ;)

The grey-ish paper is from a package (it was filling to keep the items from flying through the box, hahaha). I added some black splatters on the paper and also some black rings on the card, just liked to play around a bit.. ( Studio Light stamps)
The sentiment is from my new sticker machine (whoohooooo), it comes with several fonts and I picked the typewriter font for this card. I can also adjust the size of the text.

Copics used:

You can find the Love Bandit on the High Hopes Rubber Stamps website.
