Just Sayin' -- High Hopes Stamps

Hi there. 
Another Friday has arrived which means we are another step 
closer to Fall. YEP I said it !!!
Summer is almost over!
Happy Friday!
I created this card using High Hopes ...
and
The card base was created using a floral
pattern paper and a flower punch
I cut around the flowers to
create a different look to the design.
The image is coloured with Copic 
markers, fussy cut,  and pop dotted 
for added fun.
Thanks for peeking!

Chick Gossip...



Hello everyone! Welcome back to another installment for One Crazy Stamper! The challenge this month is "My Favorite Things." 

Lori here, and this week, I couldn't resist coloring up this super cute group of chicks - gossiping in the hen house! LOL! This image is another from the newest release, So Much Cuteness, from High Hopes Rubber Stamps:


The stamp is called "Clucker Club" and the sentiment is called "Chick Gossip"....I remember as a kid going into our chicken coop and the cluckin' goin in there was almost deafening sometimes! This image cracks me up - I wonder what they are talking about LOL....

I stamped the image and sentiment using my Misti onto Xpress It! Copic paper and colored it up with my Copic markers. I layered on red cardstock along with my background paper - and added some twine and espresso gumdrops from YNS (my favorite embellie!) 


Card Recipe:

Copic Markers: C2, E53, E55, R27, R29, YR15, YR16, YR18

Warm The Heart

Today I am happy to introduce you to Friendly Kittyanother cutie from the new release at High Hopes. I used to have a grey striped cat named Smokey. He was a very friendly guy.....especially when I had strawberry banana yogurt. He would sit on the back of the couch as I ate it and bat my hand every time I took a mouthful. He knew he would get to lick the spoon off when I was done. 
This stamp reminds me of his playfulness!



After colouring this cutie with alcohol markers, I hand fussy cut him leaving a thin white edge. I added him to some fun paper from the Echo Park. I added some dots to the flower just for fun. The sentiment is also from High Hopes (link below). A picket fence, some puffy clouds and my favourite - gumdrops - finish off my card.

Stamps: Friendly Kitty - High Hopes Rubber Stamps

Life Without Dogs......

Welcome back OCS fans to another crazy Tuesday.  I hope your weekend was good and that you are taking advantage of the last 3 weeks of summer before everyone is back to the grind --yes school. 

For today's post I have used the adorable Teacup Pup from High Hopes Stamps latest released called "So Much Cuteness".  In keeping with our challenge "My Favourite Things", I have used the Heidi Swapp Minc Machine and Reflective Foil for the design paper.


I used a sheet of Heidi Swapp design paper and with some Pink & Gold Ombre Reflective Foil and ran it through the Minc Machine.  Then an embossing folder from Ecstasy Crafts was used.  Colour was added using some Wild Honey, Shabby Shutters, Victorian Velvet Distress Inks.

Supplies used:

For any supplies that you might need check out Lora's OCS store (online as well as the brick & mortar). A road trip to Bolton can be a rather nice scenic drive.

Until next time, have fun....

Love You More

Happy Wednesday OCS Fans! 
We all need a hug once and awhile right? Even animals need a hug....so when there isn't a human around to give them one what's a cow to do??? 
Find another cow of course! <smile> 
Cow hugs it is with this cutie from the So Much Cuteness release at High Hopes. 



I had some fun colouring these two with alcohol markers and then cut it out using a stitched square die. Patterned paper from Photo Play was perfect to pull things together. The sentiment was stamped using only part of the whole sentiment and cut out using a fishtail banner die. 
A heart banner die with a pop of orange for one heart, matching twine and some sparkly gumdrops finish off my card.

More Than The Cat

Happy Wednesday OCS Fans! 
I'm back sharing another cutie from the new So Much Cuteness release at High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

I love dogs and this Prancing Pup is just too cute for me not to ink up. He kind of reminds me of my dog after he gets a hair cut - he prances around with his chest puffed out a bit and his head held high - he knows he is looking fine! Now, if I could just train him to bring me a flower..........<smile>




I wanted to try something different with this stamp. After colouring it with alcohol markers, I cut along his foot, tail and ear......but only part way. I have never done this before but I slid my circle die into the cut area and ran it through my Big Kick. This gave me part of this cute pup sticking out of the circle - I added a couple of black marks by his tail so it looks like it is wagging. 

The circle is filled in with an heart splatter stamp - should have used a darker ink here but the close up shows it a little better and gives you the idea. Some ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card.

Card Recipe 
Stamps: Prancing Pup - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: I Love You More - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: It's A Boy - Carta Bella
 Tuxedo Black ink - MementoMisti,  Best Glue Ever - ScraPerfect, classic circle die - Spellbinders, fishtail banner die - YNS, Mini Heart Splatter - YNS, ocean ink - Martha Stewart, ribbon stash, summer breeze enamel dots - Whimsy Stamps
