Love Hangin' With My Peeps

This week I am celebrating my friends! February is the month of love and I love my crazy friends who I like to call my "posse"! You know the ones.......you meet up for an innocent coffee or event, you let your hair down as they say and "things" just happen! 
You end up making some of the best memories and well let's be honest, maybe relieve a little stress along the way. I am truly blessed to have these amazing women in my life. 

I chose to use "Froggy Stack" for this card. This stamp is one of the first High Hopes stamps I ever won in a challenge many moons ago. I love the fun these three are having......although I think I would probably be the one in middle! 



After colouring these three friends with alcohol markers I cut it out using a wonky stitched die - perfect for these three fun loving friends! I set them aside and went on to creating my sentiment. This is two long sentiments combined so I masked each word and stamped them separately. Challenging but I am very happy with the result. Next I cut my patterned paper from YNS and Echo Park to fit my design and added a stitched scalloped edge just for fun. Some glittery flowers (hard to see in the photo) and gumdrops finish off my card.

Shake Your Ba-Donkey-Donk

Hi There,

Sharing a birthday card that I made using a combination of High Hope Rubber Stamps - Party Donkey S113, Brayden's Backside T066 and Warm Wishes S106. When I first saw the 2 donkey stamps, I knew just what I was going to do with them and it made me giggle just thinking about it! LOL! I hope that you get a giggle too!

I coloured in the High Hope Rubber Stamp - Party Donkey S113 on the front of the card and the fussy cut around the stamp. The cake is from the High Hopes Warm Wishes S106 stamp. I stamped it out and then fussy cut around it. I made the little flames using some spare yellow cardstock.


Here is a close up of Party Donkey.

On the inside of the card, I decided to have some fun with the High Hopes - Brayden's Backside T066. I stamped out the full image and then just the back haunches and tail. I coloured in both images and then fussy cut around them both. I attached the haunches using an Activation Wobble Spring. When you bring it to one side or the other. The butt shakes back and forth! LOL!


Here is close up:

Hannah's Heart!

Happy Tuesday OCS Fans!

Today I am sharing with you a card I made using "Hannah's Heart" from High Hopes Stamps! Hannah is one of the first stamps I had from HH and I haven't used her in a long time. I forgot just how adorable she is and had to ink her up once again!
I decided to use papers from the MME "Happy Days" 6x6 collection. I just love the colour combinations in this pack! I made this card for any "love" occasion. The sentiment "Just Because" is also from High Hopes.


 
After stamping Hannah, I coloured her with my Copic markers to match the designer paper. I added some Crystal Stickles to the tiny hearts on her dress, her flower in her hat and the butterfly. Some matching ribbon, bow and adhesive sequins finish off my design.

Using leftovers from the designer paper I decorated the inside of my card and added the HH "A Hundred Hearts" sentiment.


Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E25, E27, E29
Outfit: BG72, BG75, BG78, YG23, YG25

Goat Your Back

Hello and I hope your are wintering well.  Since it's past the middle of February, I am already starting to think about and wish for spring, which is my favourite time of the year.
Today's card uses the fun Goat Your Back image and aren't this pile of them cute?  I paired it with the Happy Thoughts sentiment which seems to go perfectly with the image.  
Copics were used to colour the image and when finished, I sponged Tumbled Glass distress ink around the edges for shading.

Hockey Stamp is perfect on this Hockey Layout

Welcome OCS Fans;

Hi it's Bev here today. I am back again as it's Saturday and I get to share a layout page with a stamped image accent for my post at One Crazy Stampers using High Hopes Stamps. This page is showcasing a great hockey image coloured to suit the team colours in the photos. This hockey page is a fundraising tournament that my son and his friends play in every year.




To start my project I stamped the hockey image and coloured it with the photo and paper colours in mind. The background part of this was very easy because the 2 photos filled the bottom section. I used striped black, grey white paper and the upper section is grey marbled print to give the look of ice. It came together fabulously.


The highlights are added using a signo white gel pen. For this specific image I added a circular chipboard accent that fit perfectly around the image.  It is showcased by adding a washi tape border and a hockey net accent with the Hockey title.... so easy but I love it.
Sure hope that I am inspiring you to think about getting out these stamps you own and working them into your layout pages too.

Supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Sam's Big Play T511
  • Copic Markers: 0. C0, C01, C03, C5, C8, B000, R24, R35. R37, W5, W7, E00, E01, E55, E57, E59 
  • Paper: Paper House, PhotoPlay
  • Chipboards:  Creative Embellishments
  • Other: signo white gel pen, cardstock, washi tape. black pen

Swinging Birthday

We had an unexpected snow event last week where I live and another that is heading towards us for Tuesday (two days ago) so my thoughts have been turning towards Spring, sun and warmth. 
Every crafter I know never has enough Birthday cards in their stash and I am no different so this week I created a CAS style, clear front card to add to my stash. 




After colouring this sweet stamp with alcohol markers, I hand fussy cut her leaving a thin white line. I set her aside and cut my card base. The sentiment I used is one sentiment but I masked off the first line and stamped it using my trusty Misti. Next I placed my cloud die and ran it through my Big Kick. I cut my blue sky background and a piece of embossable window plastic and added clouds to both using an embossing folder. I cut a plain white strip of cardstock for the bottom, masked my sentiment and stamped it. 
A matching gingham ribbon and some enamel dots finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamp: L'il Swinger - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Swinging Birthday - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle

Tuxedo Black Memento ink, Misti, white gel pen, enamel dots - Carta Bella, ribbon - Stampin' Up!, puffy cloud border die - YNS, embossable window plastic - Judi-kins, cloud embossing folder - Darice

Spectrum Noir Markers: CT1 CT2 CT4 GY4 TN1 EB1 TB8 BT9 TB9 EB3 EB6 EB8 PP3

A few die cut heart circles and enamel dots help to finish off my card.

Pizza My Heart

February is the month of love and they say the way to a man's heart is food....so "Luigi" has you covered! How fun is this heart shaped pizza!? Perfect for Valentine's Day or an Anniversary card especially if the recipient loves pizza! 



This week I challenged myself to make a Valentine themed card in non traditional colours. After colouring the adorable Luigi with alcohol markers I  fussy cut him leaving a thin white edge. Fussy cutting him was not my plan but things happen and the plan changes <wink>
I added him to a stitched tag background with some foam pop dots just for fun. The sentiment was stamped and cut to fit and all of this cuteness was added to some patterned paper from MFT and my stash. A few die cut hearts finish off my A2 size card.  

Card Recipe 
Stamp: Luigi - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Pizza My Heart - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Gingham Galore - MFT, stash

Hogs & Kisses!

Hello OCS Fans!!
Valentine's Day is around the corner so I thought it was the perfect time to create a card using the High Hopes "Betsy Loves Barney" Stamp! Pigs are some of the cutest images but 2 pigs in love..... just doesn't get sweeter than that!
I decided to mask off each pig and stamp them separately to create my little windows and then stamp the whole image. I imagine them flirting with each other and then coming together for that first kiss. My papers today are from the American Crafts "Loves Me Not" 6x6 collection. I made little circle frames from my Ai Double Stitched circle dies. It's hard to see but the "Xo" paper is popped up with foam tape so that the images are sunken down inside the frame. I took the HH "Hogs and Kisses" sentiment and cut it apart so that it could fit inside my Stitched Heart die cut. A double loop bow, heart gem and some Doodlebug Tiny Heart Sprinkles finish everything off!
My decorated inside along with the HH "Always and Forever" sentiment.
Copics Used:
R00, R01, R02, R20, R21, R22, R24
N5, N6, N7, W3, W5, YG23

Make sure to head on over to the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs as the Design Team will be using stamps for the theme "A Month of Love" to inspire you!

Happy Stamping!
