Julies Touch -- High Hopes New Release

Spring has finally decided to show up this year. Better late than never! I am looking forward to crafting  my  afternoons away on the picnic bench outside!
I've been working on creating with some new stamps from High Hopes.  This sweet gal is one of the new designs called Julie's Touch.
She is one of many gorgeous fairies being released this month.

I totally love the magical elements to this stamp.  I used the Copic Airbrush to create a night sky along with a neon-ish green grass for a cartoon type effect.  I think the airbrush gives a mystical effect to the design.  The coordinating sentiment is a must have and in my opinion a perfect match for this stamp.
Stay tuned to more beautiful stamp designs from high hopes .

Birthday Gang, Wild Party - High Hopes Stamps

Thanks for peeking in today, I have a new High Hopes design to share.  Such a fun stamp to colour and play with! I created an envelope with clear acetate and a score board, then added the image and a few sequences for an extra smile.  I glued a few of the sequences at the top to give the appearance of them falling.

Birthdays are always a big deal around my house. On my hubby's side of the family we mail out birthday cards for their  special day.
I think its a nice way to let loved ones  know we are thinking of them. I keep a birthday book on hand so we don't forget any on our list.
Enjoy the rest of the week!

Orian and Whisky -- High Hopes Stamps

Meet Orian and Whisky, they are part of the New release over at High Hopes Stamps!
This stamp reminds me of Happy Times and worry free days.  I tried to create a masculine card which we all know is not as easy as the girly designs that we usually default too.
Kept it simple with lots of muted tones and some Kraft paper too.
Using Gems, buttons, paper piercing, or sewing helps guide your eye around a design for good flow.
I can imagine sending this card with some homemade cookies to an old friend to say hello :)
I attended Scrapfest last weekend with my friend Linda.  Lots of fun walking around checking things out.  I was trying to crouch down since I am taller than her and ended up with a funny pose :)
Pop by the High Hopes Blog and play along in this months challenge. There is a free digi offered if your short on stamps.
A huge thank you for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the week!

Happy Panda - High Hopes Stamps

Hi, Thanks for stopping by today. I've been playing around with a little bit of Panda Love from High Hopes Stamps.
This card was created using an old calendar which is from one of our local restaurants .  I had hubby cut down the bamboo dowel and fit it over the top of the card. the strips of paper are also from the calendar. I knew my hoarding would come in handy one day!

Here's  a peek in my doodad bin, because you never know when your going to need a piece of garbage lol!
The cherry pink paper is from SEI and I think it adds an oriental feel to the design. I created the tag and added bamboo using Cricut's Pagoda and the writing translates to Friendship.

The image is coloured with Copics and airbrushed,I've used the following colours ..
G14,G16,BG70,BG72,R20,R11,C0,C1, C7, E08,E31,E33,BD75,G24,G28,G29,C2,C3,C5,
Hope you enjoy the rest of the week!

Bunny Blooms High Hopes Stamps

Thanks for peeking in today.  Easter is just around the corner and I thought this design would be a nice way to welcome in Spring!
Used my trusty Mini Sewing machine to create the stitches and layers for this card.  The pattern paper reminds me of a Easter Egg with that fun chevron design.
