Bob Loves Grass - Lacey

Hello High Hopes Fans!!

Tomorrow is the last day to enter the Monthly Challenge!!

Today I'm used Bob Loves Grass T518 from the latest release.

The image was embossed in black and watercolored with Twinkling H2Os.
In this picture, you can see the shimmer from the H02s along with the light reflecting off the embossed image...
H2O's used:
Natural Linen, Dreamsicle, Olive Vine, Nutmeg, Wintermist Grey, Cinnamon, Bolivian Blue and Bashful Blue

Happy stamping!

Surf Star!

                             Happy Thursday High Hopes fans! 

              Have you joined our challenge for July -  Anything High Hopes Goes ?               Today is your last day to play along! There are so many fun images to                            choose from - come join the fun! 

I don't know if you've noticed but Bob sure is one super talented dude! Today we find him doing a photo shoot - he is a surfing star! We would expect nothing less from Bob at this point - he seems to do it all! 

My post today features Bob's A Surfer Dude (T519) and a sentiment from Sentiment Set #4 (U507).


I coloured Bob with alcohol markers (list below)and fussy cut him and popped him up with pop dots. He put on his favourite pair of flowered shorts (paper pieced) for this photo shoot. I fussy cut the camera from some patterned paper and added the sentiment after stamping it and cutting it out with a circle die.

 I didn't have a film strip die so I got out my square dies and the hole punch from my Making Memories tool kit and voila. A polaroid die with some sky patterned paper and inked edges gives some background to the stamp. Glitter gold enamel dots finished off my card. 

Have a happy and safe long weekend! Stay cool!

Bob Loves Golf

Howdy -

MichelleO here - Another great new image from High Hopes Stamps - Bob Love Golf 

Now I am not a "golfer" but coloring this one was too much fun. Maybe it was finding the perfect pattern paper to create a paper pieced pair of golfing pants out of! LOL

I colored with my Copics (colors below) and then found the pattern paper for him. Went pretty wild... as don't most serious golfers where the most ridiculous patterns?  I used the same paper and lots of card stock mats for this one. Sewed down all the layers then added the sentiment that is also from High Hopes Sentiment #4 Collection - then a few buttons for added fun.

Inside more of the same papers.

Copic colors used -

So I may not "get" golf.. but coloring it up was fun!

Hang Ten!

Howdy High Hopes Fans!
My card today shows the super cute image called Gabriel Loves Surfing! Gabriel has to be the cutest little Dude! Can't you just picture him in Hawaii surfing the waves?
I'm using paper from the Fancy Pants Making Waves 6x6 collection. The sentiment is from the HH Sentiment Set#4. I added some twine and a button for my embellishments this time around. And can you believe it no glitter pen..... I know I struggled with that LOL. I just didn't think Gabriel wanted to be sparkly LOL.
On the inside I used some of the scraps from my papers to tie everything together! I left the inside blank so I can personalize it when an occasion pops up.

Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair: E13, E15, E17, E19
Shorts: B34, B37, B39, YR23
