Brayden Smiles

Happy Wednesday OCS Fans! 

My post today features "Brayden" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I like to have a few cards in my stash to be able to send someone who needs a pick me up. 

I think Brayden fits the bill for one of my horsey friends - even though he is a donkey. I added a "bow tie" to him just for fun <smile>

After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers I fussy cut him and used a Tuxedo Black marker to go around the edges. Some 3D foam pop dots help him stand off the front of the card.  I put together some patterned paper from an older Echo Park collection and voila. His bow tie was stamped, coloured and fussy cut - I added some white dots but it is hard to see in the photo. A flower with some Stickles in the middle for a bit of bling, gumdrops and a vine die cut finish off my card.

Springtime Joy

I hope you are enjoying our Anything Goes month here at OCS. It has been fun to see all of the different stamps High Hopes has to offer! 

My post today features "Mary Angel" and the "Springtime Joy" sentiment. 

I don't know about you but when I was a kid one of the best parts of Spring was the puddles! There was nothing better then grabbing your favourite pair of rubber boots  - or not - and going out and playing in the puddles. 

After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers I cut it out using a stitching mark and piercing marks die. I also cut out a doily die to place behind it to add a little "frill". 
I cut and double matted my patterned paper from Doodlebug and added some matching cardstock after running it through a cloud embossing folder.

Some Stickles were added to Mary's wings and I added some matching pink polka dot so to the umbrella with a marker. 

I had a fun Spring themed die set I used to cut out my rubber boot and umbrella. Some matching twine and some sparkly gumdrops finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamps: Mary Angel (Q020) - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Springtime Joy (F019) - High Hopes Rubber Stamps

Owl Always Love You.....

Welcome OCS Fans;

It seems that "Old Man Winter" isn't done with winter yet, as he has decided to bring a wintery blast of cold air, snow and more snow as well as being windy our way.

Oh well, there is not much we can do but have some creative time.  I coloured up these sweet owls using Spectrum Noir blendable pencils.  I laced some pink and white twine through the holes on the die cut.

Supplies used: 
There is still plenty of time to enter this month's challenge "Anything Goes" for a chance to win 2 unmounted High Hopes stamps of your choice.

Rainy days -- High Hopes Stamps

Hi there and Happy Friday!
I've been playing around with the following stamps and created
this little tag :)
 I cut a few tags and glued them together to make a nice thick base.  The image is coloured with Copic markers and sewing stitches made a framed border.  The sentiment was cut into pieces and framed 
with some blue card stock to help the words pop. 
Some  pretty flowers and floral background paper also. 
There is plenty of time of enter this month's challenge for a chance to win 2 unmounted High Hopes Rubber Stamps of your choice.
Have a great weekend!
