Goliath Christmas Mouse

Happy Friday High Hopes Fans!  

Just 9 more days left till Christmas and if you still have some last minute cards to make this is a quick cute one that you can make with any Sizzix Flip it Die.

I used one of High Hopes older images, Goliath Christmas Mouse.
I colored the image with Prisma Colored Pencils (warm grey, cardinal red, yellow, black)

The patterned paper is from The Paper Studio.
I tied green grossgrain ribbon (Celebrate it) around the card and then glued bells on.

The inside sentiment is Magic of Christmas.

I hope you are enjoying the holiday season and aren't too stressed out with all the "stuff"!

Take some time to stamp and have'll be glad you did!

Snowflake Gift

I love snowmen! so when I saw the Snowman Flakes 4 U stamp in the new Winter Joy release I knew I wanted to make a card with him. I also fell in love with the colours of this paper and the result is a fun, winter themed card for a friend. 

I coloured my stamp using alcohol markers and cut it out with a new to me die with scallops and stitches. It is hard to see in the photo but the "gift" snowflakes are coloured with a Spectrum Sparkle pen - fun right?! After colouring the trees, I cut a piece of sponge and used it add some white acrylic paint to add some "snow". Ribbon, some Nuvo drops and a fun silver snowflake charm are the finishing touches. Now...I wonder which of my friends would like to find this in their mailbox........

Snowman Cowboy

Howdy - MichelleO here today and I pulled out High Hopes Stamps new Snowman Cowboy and Winter Evergreen and had some fun building or coloring a snowman!

A bit of a Yee Haw Texas Cowboy Snowman huh? I stamped out the Snowman Cowboy and masked it to stamp up the Winter Evergreen behind him. I colored with my copies and then added some White Snow paint for some depth of snow. Loved adding it to the tree branches especially!

A Piece of scrap winter paper some black and white card stock for this image. Then I found the High Hopes Stamp "Think Snow" Sentiment… maybe we will get snow again soon here in Texas?? Wouldn't that be crazy fun??

My Copic colors used -

This snowman was fun to play with… and I could color it while in my PJs in the warmth of my craft room. Have a wonderful day -

Penguin Shaker Tags!

Happy Monday Friends.
Today I'm playing with one of the new stamps from 
the "Winter Joy November Release". Just the perfect penguin image to created some shaker tags!

This cutie is "Penguin Earmuffs" from High Hopes Stamps 

To begin I stamped these images with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with alcohol markers. Fussy cut every single image and used C7 copic around the edges. To embellish those penguins I add Diamond stickles in his earmuffs and used a white pen to give interest. 

Now to create the shaker tag. I used my Spellbinder circles, acetate window, 3D foam tape and put various sequins. The pattern paper are from my stash. 
For finishing touches used red/black plaid ribbon and tied a bow with some lime green string. 

That's all for today hope you have enjoyed today's post.

I've added some leaves and flowers from Wild Orchid Flowers. I also added some foam tape on the image for some depth.
