So how are you liking the new release? These are some cute stamps!!

Today I have another card using one of the new release stamps...

This is called Dancing Hedgehogs. You can find the whole release here

I saw this print paper with these fun sayings "Run, Smile, play, giggle", etc and knew that they were perfect for this image. They are an old My Mind's Eye pad. 

I used some beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers, Magnolia Scalloped Stitched Lace DooHickey, Wrinkle Ribbon, Butterfly Punch, and Pearls to finish it off. 


The image was embossed in black onto watercolor paper and watercolored with Twinkling H2Os...

Buddy Bear Camping - It's Your Day!

Howdy -

This week I had some fun with Buddy Bear Camping - Great Guy image don't you think?


I used papers from Simple Stories - coloring with my copics with to match the colors of the papers.  Love the rich colors of these - I doodled the edge of the image and then used the sentiment "It's your day!" And for an embellishment I found a chipboard piece that I colored with a Copic.

Inside more of the same papers and another High Hopes Sentiment Large Fancy "Happy Birthday!"



Copic Colors Used -


There are so many wonderful images in this new release - You can see all the new release images HERE. Enjoy -

All Horses Deserve to be Loved - Dina


Hey Stampers!
.
I created this colorful card, not only because I love horses, but also in honor of all my horse loving friends.
I used white cardstock as my base of my 5×7 card, and affixed various pattern papers, from DCWV Stacker III, in shades of purple and blue.
The little flowered paper is also from DCWV from the Pocket Full of Posies stack. I roughed up the edges using some sand paper to give it a slight distressed look, to give it more dimension, and to reveal more of the white edges.
I stamped with the "Spring is in the Air" new release “My Pony”. and painted the image with watercolors and prismacolor markers. I fussy cut the stamped image and affixed it to a white scalloped punched piece of white cardstock and lightly painted a background.

I used a Fiskars Rope border punch and a piece of shear white ribbon which I placed behind “My Pony” image. 
I cut the cloud out with  Paper Smooches “Curly Clouds” Die because they are just so stinkin’ cute!
I then printed out and attched the sentiment- “All horses deserve, at least once in their life, to be loved by a little girl”


To finish my card, I embellished with some Prima Paper Flowers, which I dotted with my favorite YNS Gumdrops – Lavender, and punched out some paper flowers from the background papers, dotted them with YNS Gumdrops – Cotton Candy Blue, that I got from One Crazy Stamper, and affixed them randomly on my card.
Happy Stamping!




Snuggles and Cuddles

Hello High Hopes Fans

You can find our March Challenge HERE
The challenge runs through Tuesday, March 31st. 


Today my card is created using the newly released stamp called Snuggles & Cuddles. This Panda and her little one is absolutely adorable! Did you know that a Panda can spend 14-16 hours a day eating bamboo? Just a fun fact for you!!


As soon as I saw this image I knew my paper choice had to be back and red! I used paper from American Crafts "Amy Tangerine Sketchbook" and Kaiserkraft's "Shaken Not Stirred" collections. A red bow, black button and some matching enamel dots finished off my card.
