Goliath Christmas Mouse

Howdy - MichelleO here today - How can you not love at little mouse dressed as Santa Claus? Goliath Christmas Mouse is too cute for words...


I colored with my Copics and then found a pattern paper from My Minds Eye with a border punch from Martha Stewart. Love this sweet little image.  I added Viva Decor white Pearl Pen for the beard and then Glitter pen for the hat. oh and I added some dots to the card for embellishment. The sentiment is a cute little "Small Merry Christmas Script" - perfect for your Christmas cards.  I sewed all the layers down.

Copic markers used -


This is such a great image - and there are so many image to choose from at the High Hopes Stamps web site! Click HERE to get there quick!

Snowy's Cup!

Hi High Hope Fans!
It's Tuesday so that means you can find me over on the High Hopes Blog sharing the cards I made. Today's cards feature the adorable "Snowy's Cup" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps!
I love this stamp because you can stamp a sentiment on the middle of the cup! I used the "Dot warm Winter Wishes" sentiment to do just that!

On the inside I used the "Dot Snowman Melts" sentiment!

My paper is from the Doodlebug Polar Pals 6x6 collection, an oldie but still one of my favourite paper collections! I used my Brother Cut N Scan to cut around my image and then popped it up with foam squares for added dimension. I struggled with this layout, I wanted to add more of something but couldn't decide what! Then my mom appeared in my ear saying "less is more" lol so I decided to just leave it like it is! Sometimes Mom is right LOL!

It's hard to see but there is Glossy accents on the nose and buttons, and Spectrum Noir Glitter pen on the purple areas and the red stripes of the candy cane.

Copics Used:
C1, C6, C8, YR04, R24, R27, R29
V12, V15, V17, B23, B26, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG18

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!

Gingerbread Boy Banner

Happy Friday High Hopes Fans!

While the team has been having a blast playing with the stamps from the new release I thought it would be fun to play with an older image!



I colored the image with Prisma pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.
(Cardinal Red, Grass Green, Spring Green, Pink, Sienna, sky blue, silver)


The ribbon is May Arts.
The paper is We R Memory Keepers.
The sentiment that I stamped on the banner is Dot Warm Winter Wishes.


I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration.
We appreciate you stopping by!

Winter Kitty Christmas

Did you see the new "Winter Fun" release from High Hopes yesterday?!? If you haven't - be sure to check it out! 
One of the oh so cute new release stamps was this cutie "Winter Kitty". If you are a cat lover or have a cat lover in your life, then this a stamp you will want in your collection!



After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers, I cut it out using a circle die. I added Liquid Applique to the hat and scarf for some texture. I found out the hard way, you have to completely dry/puff up the applique with your heat gun - if there are any spots that are still wet and you run it through a die cutting machine ......well let's just say it's a mess - lesson learned - die cut then add liquid applique. After I was set (the second time), I added my stamp to paper from Simple Stories and added some ribbon and a bow. Some photo corners and gumdrops finish off my card.
