Tom's Plea

Canadian Thanksgiving is just around the corner - I wish I knew where this year has gone! 
Tom's plea is a simple one really but his wish for a Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends and family is sincere. 





Tom's plea is simple so I wanted to keep my card layout CAS to match. This was a challenge for me as it is way outside of my comfort zone. I also coloured this stamp with Prismacolor Premier Pencils which is also totally! out of my comfort zone. Still lots of practice needed but I am pretty happy with how this turned out. 
After colouring Tom, I hand fussy cut him and set him aside. I cut my cardstock background to the size I needed and smooshed some pale yellow ink on part of it. I put this piece into my Misti and stamped my sentiment. Some sequins and gumdrops finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Tom's Plea - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Script Happy Thanksgiving - High Hopes Rubber Stamps

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, Strathmore Coloured Pencil paper, Barely Banana ink - Stampin' Up, gumdrops - YNS, sequins - stash

Jumping with Excitement

This last month has been full of birthdays, both family and friends celebrated the big event, so it's been a very busy month.  Boy's cards are super hard to find so I just had to design this little fellow into a card for the big event!


This adorable image is Jumping Party Robot from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  I have colored him with Copic markers and then fussy cut him out.  The designer paper is from Bo Bunny and the sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.  I used good old fashioned pinking scissors to make the border around the sentiment.

Halloween Night

Hi OCS Friends!
It's time for another Halloween inspired card today! I'm using the High Hopes "Halloween Mini Set" and "Bat". I love this set because you can use it so many different ways!

Look at the adorable "Halloween Mini" set! Think of all the different ways you can use this set! Awesome value for sure!

Merry Christmas placecard holder -- High Hopes Stamps

 Hi there and Happy Saturday. I'm back to share a little place card holder made with
High Hopes super cute Santa 
I like this Santa a lot and have used him in many projects. I decided to make a cut behind his hat which holds the banner.  A name place card holder  for a Christmas table could also be added to Santa's hands but I decided to use a greeting instead.

Basically the place card holder is made up of three parts. Everything was hand cut without any dies.  
A folded piece of cardstock, Santa image and a card that was traced around the image.
The folded cardstock goes between the card to hold it together and keep the image upright.

The image is coloured with Copic markers, liquid applique and a Christmas banner for some
festive fun

Get Well Soon!

Welcome Everyone;

Now that September is nearly over and the weather is getting cooler, that means more colds and feeling under the weather.

For today's post I made a CAS  card that could be used as a Get Well Card.  Instead of using design paper, I used Gina K. Designs Vibrant Vines Foil-Mates with a sheet of Brillant Blue Fancy Foils. This was then foiled using the Minc machine.  Unfortunately, the photo isn't showing the sparkle in the foil.

The image was stamped with Staz On Jet Black ink on some water colour paperand coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brushes.



Supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Garden Fence, Get Well Soon (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)
  • Ink:  Staz On Jet Black
  • Paper:  Strathmore Ready Cut Water Color
  • Gina K. Designs:  Fancy Foils - Brillant Blue, Foil-Mates - Vibrant Vines
  • Zig Clean Color Real Brushes:  075 - Brick Beige, 047 - May Green, 053 - Yellow Green, 803 - Lavendar, 081 - Light Violet

Winter Joy!

 For my inspiration post this week I decided to colour up a fun winter stamp called Candy Cane Penguin. How fun is this penguin - he sure is happy!!! 
Sometimes you just need to jump for joy - no matter what the reason, just jump and let out pure and outrageous joy! 



 First I coloured up my winter background and added some Stickles to some of the snow flakes and snow banks. Then I coloured the penguin and fussy cut him leaving a thin white edge. Since he is sooo happy I decided to put him on an action wobble so he wiggles and jiggles.
The sentiment is a wood cut out that is coloured with a red sparkle pen - the sparkle is hard to see in the picture but it really is sparkly! 
Some twine and sparkly gumdrops finish off my card.

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Candy Cane PenguinWinter Wonderland Background - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Wood word - The Stockade
Patterned Paper: Mad 4 Plaid Christmas - Photo Play

Jingle Canadian Christmas Greetings

Fall is in the air here in British Columbia, and with that in mind my thoughts turn to Christmas and all of the cards I need to make.  This card features one of my favorite images from High Hopes Rubber stamps.


This is Canadian Christmas Greetings that I stamped on to Copic Xpress It cardstock with Memento ink and then colored with Copic Markers.  I paired the image with Christmas paper from Photo Play, some red twine and a sentiment from My Favorite Things.

Card Recipe - E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E39, R22, R24, R29, G40, G43, G46, T1, B41, T8, 100, Wink of Stella gold, Sakura white glaze pen

Fall!

Hello OCS Fans!
Today I am sharing something that's totally out of my comfort zone! I tried my hand at watercoloring this beautiful image from High Hopes called "Farm Background" with a watercolour paper palette. I still need lots of practice but I have to admit it was fun!
 I started by stamping the image onto some watercolour paper and then using the palette, a brush and some water coloured it in. After it had time to dry I cut out the word "Fall" and added the letters back in with foam tape to create an "Eclipse" card. A bit of Designer Paper behind the image and some enamel dots finished it all off.
The Watercolour Palette is basically a sheet of paper with some small dots of water-colour paint. It was neat to try the Paper Palette's and I think you could easily make your own to take easily with you.

Until Next time......
Happy Stamping!

Winter Fun!

Welcome Everyone;

With the start of school and fall almost here, this brings the start of Winter fun and sports.  Hockey is a big one with my grandchildren.  They all play and can't wait for their season to start.

For today's card, I have used the adorable Penguin's Pastime stamp from High Hopes Stamps.  Copic Markers were used to colour the image.  Silver foil, and Turquoise & Silver Foil, were used with the Heidi Swap Minc machine to foil the snowflakes.

Hang In There

 The design team is doing Anything Goes this week on the blog so I thought I would have some fun and monkey around a little!

We all need some encouragement or to know someone is thinking of us once and a while so I decided that Monkey Mike would be perfect to help not only bring some encouragement but also a smile to someone. I think he is pretty cute and he makes me giggle! 





 I tackled the jungle background first, colouring it with alcohol markers and then set it aside. Next I coloured up Monkey Mike and hand fussy cut him. I found some matching plaid patterned paper and cut it and matching cardstock to fit my A2 size. Next, I created a cardstock frame by using two different sizes of rectangle dies and added it on top of the background with pop dots. 
Then, I took our handsome Monkey Mike and hung him from the frame by his tail. He has a pop dot behind him too because he kinda tilted sideways when I hooked him up by tail. 
The sentiment was stamped and cut out with a fish tail banner die and a few enamel dots finish off my card.
