Julie's Smile - For the Kids Challenge at SSS (Created by Lisa Z.)

Here is another card that I made, using High Hopes Stamps and some Wink of Stella Glitter on the wings!  The glitter looks sooo pretty in real life.  It was difficult to capture that in the picture.

Pumpkin Patch (Created by Jane Z.)

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

TGIF!!!  As summer nears the end, the air starts to feel a bit more crisp and harvest season is near.  I am excited to share another fall card with you today.
 
 
This is Pumpkin Patch (S152).  I just love the country appeal this stamp has!
 
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, Glossy Accents were added on the lettering of the sign and on the crow's beak and heart.   

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Always Artichoke cardstock and the layering piece is SU Kraft cardstock.  The designer paper is from Simple Stories-Take A Hike 6x6 Paper Pad.  A sponge dauber with a SU Chocolate Chip Ink Pad was used to sponge ink around the edge of the image and layering piece, to give the card a more country/rustic look.  Foam tape was applied to the main image to help make it pop out a bit and add some dimension.  To complete this card, some strips of twine with a bow was added, along with a few sparkling clear sequins. 
 
Supplies Used:

Batty Boo Tag (Created by Lisa Z.)

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
 
Happy Saturday Friends!  I am excited to share a Halloween Treat Bag Tag with you today...

 
This is Batty Boo (P126).  What a great image for Halloween!
 
The image was stamped on watercolor cardstock using my Misti Stamping Tool with a Versamark Ink Pad and heated with black embossing powder.  The image was coloured with Tombow Markers and water.  Once the colouring was finished and dry, Glossy Accents were applied on the bat's wings and nose.  After the gloss was dry, the image was cut down to size and some SU Chocolate Chip ink was sponged on the edges.
 
For the tag base, I chose a piece of designer paper from Simple Stories-Take A Hike 6x6 Paper Pad.  The edges on both the image and the background were punched with different corner punches. To complete this tag, a bunch of brown YNS gumdrops and ribbon were added. 
  
Supplies Used:
InkTombow Markers - 606, 977, 993, 879, 905, N35, N55 and 723; Versamark Ink Pad, Black Embossing Powder, SU Chocolate Chip Ink Pad for sponging edges.

Tom's Plea (Created by Jane Z.)

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

TGIF!!!  Well, the summer is just flying by and before too long fall will be here.  Along with fall comes Thanksgiving.  Here is a fun card just for that occasion...
 
 
This is Tom's Plea (R201) and Happy Thanksgiving sentiment (G089).  This image makes me chuckle - poor Tom!  He does taste good at Thanksgiving dinner though...lol!
 
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image and background (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, Glossy Accents were added on Tom's beak.  Once this had dried, I proceeded to fussy cut the image. 

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Pumpkin Pie cardstock and the layering piece is SU Marine Mist cardstock.  The designer paper is from Doodlebug - Happy Harvest 6x6 Paper Pad.  Foam tape was applied to the main image to help make it pop out a bit and add some dimension to this card. A grass edger punch was used to create some grass for Tom to sit on.  The sentiment was stamped with versamark ink, and heat embossed with SU Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  Foam tape was also used to adhere the sentiment.  To complete this card, some paper flowers with pewter brads in the centres were added.   Hope this inspires you to start on some fall/Thanksgiving projects!
