Wednesday May 27, Julie's Wish - Natalie

Hi there, It's Wednesday and I'm back again with another fairy design from High Hopes Stamps.  Julie's Wish and the sentiment is a fave of mine ... such fun! :)
I decided to create an easel card which I thought was a nice way to display this little darling! 
The image was coloured with Copics with added Diamond Stickles.
Copic Numbers -- YG000,YG01,Y21,YG03,YG05,BV02,R20,V000,V05,V01,
Thanks for peeking. Please visit my blog for further details.

Julie's Smile - Have a Magical Day

MichelleO here and this week I played with another one of High Hopes Stamps new Fairy images. Such fun cards to be girlie with and add flowers and bling too!

This is Julie's Smile

Sweet image! I colored with my Copics (colors below) and then went crazy with the stickles for LOTS of bling on her wings. I told myself I wasn't going to this time...  but it just didn't feel right with out the bling, right?  I have no will power at all... diet proves that! My papers are all Kaisercraft Tropical punch collection, I sewed all the layers together with a zig zag stitch. Then I created a piece of "lace" with a Martha Stewart Punch. Cut a strip of paper, then punched on both sides. The flowers are punches that I added some Viva Decor Gold Pearl Pen. The sentiment is also from High Hopes - "Sentiment Set #2" - fabulous group of sentiments you will use over and over especially with these adorable fairy images!

Copic colors used -

I hope you like my Fairy card - There are so many great Fairy images that just came out at High Hopes - and if you need a more boyish image they are covered as well with this new release. See them all HERE  - Then take some time to surf around the entire store... you will find lots you like! I PROMISE!

Gabriel's A Hockey Player!

Hi High Hopes Fans!

For all you hockey fans out there or hockey Moms, here is the perfect stamp for you! Gabriel's A Hockey Player is super cute and I love that you can colour him in your own team colours! I am a big Guelph Storm fan so of course these are our team colours! 

Once Gabriel was stamped I coloured him in with my Copic Sketch markers. I created the "Go Team" using a Stitched Fishtail flag and the plain Fishtail Flags! Then using an Alphabet stamp set added the phrase and glued it to the back of my cardstock layer. I decided to use paper from the Echo Park Birthday Wishes 6x6 paper pad. A few YNS gumdrops and black twine finished off my card!

The sentiment on the inside comes from the new Sentiment Set #1.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E02, R20
Hair: Y21, Y26
Red parts: R35, R37, R39
Black parts: W3, W5, W6, W8
Stick: E31, E33
Ice: BG000

The new release "Fairies and Adventurers" is so sweet! Head on over to High Hopes Stamps and check out the whole release! Also don't forget to enter into our May Challenge "Anything Goes"! I can't wait to see what you design!

Happy Crafting!

Hi there High Hopes Fans!

Kristine here with another Fun Fairy card featuring Julie's Moment from the Fairies and Adventures release.

I colored the image with Chameleon Markers (OR4-YR3-YL2-NU1-BL3-PK3)
It was a little brighter than I wanted so I went over it with Copic Markers (YR00-Y15-Y17-RV81)

The Paper is American Crafts "Yes, Please".
The sentiment is from the Sentiment Set #2

 I just received my stamps from the next release and they are AMAZING!
Can't wait to start sharing my creations!

Welcome to Sneak Peaks 4 & 5 of our upcoming "All About Boys" release coming June 1st.

Meet Gabriel Loves Baseball.....

Meet Bob Loves his Motorcycle.....

Stay tuned for more Sneak Peaks coming your way this week.


Julie's Wish - Lynne

Happy Monday High Hopes fans!  This is my last post as part of the High Hopes DT.  It's been a wonderful 3 years and it's been great to have 'worked' with such a fabulous DT!  (You can't exactly call it 'work' when the images are such fun to colour!)   I'd like to wish my teamies all the very best for the future, and special wishes and thanks to Lora :)

So for my final card I've used Julie's Wish from the Fairies and Adventurers release.  I've coloured her with my Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils, and added some clear gloss and glitter to her fairy dust and to the centres of all the stars, so it's lovely and sparkly.  My magical day sentiment is from the new Sentiment Set #2.

Thanks for visiting High Hopes today .... feel free to pop over to my blog too!
