Hang In There

Happy Wednesday One Crazy Stamper fans! Our challenge this month is Anything Goes - have you played along yet? 

My inspiration post for this week has been made for my card stash in case I have a friend who needs a pick me up or some positive words.

 "Juliette's Leap Of Faith" is the star of this card - sometimes you just have to hold your breath, jump with both feet and hope things work out right?! 

The positive thoughts/words come from combining two sentiment stamps - boy do I love my Misti for this! 



After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers, I cut it out using a stitched rectangle die. I added it to patterened paper from Carta Bella and Doodlebug. 
The sentiment was created using "pieces" of two different sentiments. It took a few tries to get things lined up the way I wanted them - using my Misti to do this was the only way it could have happened! 
A fun circle die cut to break up the background papers, some ribbon and my favourite - gumdrops finish off my card. 

Stamps: Juliette's Leap Of Faith- High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Hang In ThereDon't Worry - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper: Beach Day - Carta Bella, Fall Friends - Doodlebug
 Tuxedo Black ink - MementoMisti, ribbon - stash, stitched rectangle die - YNS, Blue Raspeberry gumdrops - YNS, Circles Galore die - YNS

It Ain't Summer Til...

Today is officially the first day of summer! My card today features a couple of fun summer themed images from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. 

For my post today, I made a fun summer themed side step card. I tried to add some real sand that a friend brought back from the Dominican for me but I couldn't find a way to get it to stick properly. There is a story behind that sand including getting stopped and searched at the airport but I will share that story when I successfully find a way to use it on a card <wink> 

For now... "Beach Girl Patti" - she sure looks like she is ready to dive into the water and do some snorkeling doesn't she?! 





After cutting out my side step card base I coloured and fussy cut my stamps. I added some glossy accents to Patti's goggles but it is kinda hard to see in the photo. Some matching blue cardstock was cut size and a wave border die was the perfect touch for my waves. 
I ran a black marker around the edges of these pieces too just to give them a bit more definition. I added some fish just for fun since Patti is going snorkeling I'm sure she'll see some! 
The sentiment was stamped on some matching patterned paper and voila! 

Stamps: Beach Girl PattiPalm Tree, Bubbles - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Sandy Toes - High Hopes Rubber Stamps

Take Time

I love this time of year! My flowers are blooming and I just had my first rose open - love my roses!!! 
Our adorable friend "Watson" from High Hopes is reminding us to take time to stop and smell the flowers.....or in my case roses <smile> I'm not sure if I would do it with my butt up in the air but hey, we all have our own way of doing things right?



I started by stamping and colouring my images with alcohol markers and fussy cutting it - I have now officially broken a second pair of cuticle scissors - I think I do too much fussy cutting? lol. After cutting Watson out, I set him aside and pulled out some inks to make an ink blended background. I used a stitched square die to cut out my background piece and taped down my circle die to create my ink blended background. A black pen was run around the inside of the die to "contain" the blending.  The sentiment was stamped using my Misti - love my Misti! The Prima flowers were perfect for my layout and some Nuvo glitter drops were the perfect thing to add a bit of bling. The card is finished off using some sparkly gumdrops in the corners - I am just getting used to the Nuvo drops and didn't want to chance ruining my card...still practicing <wink>

Stamps: Watson - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Smell The Flowers - High Hopes Rubber Stamps

All you need is love and a cat -- High Hopes Stamps

Today's creation is made 
with the following High Hopes stamps...
and
I had some scraps of canvas fabric
in my stash and decided to put it to
good use. I sew up the canvas and
made some bags.
Also created a friendship tag stamped on canvas:) !!
Heat pressed a cute sentiment on the back  that reads "all you need is love and a cat"
I used my High hopes stamps with 
Stazons Ink  and and applied it to the
front of the bag.
Pulled out my Copic markers and
coloured the canvas.
Some tips I have if your going to try this technique ... (as I discovered along the way).
 Let the ink fully dry (probably  let dry overnight is the best).  I had some minor smudging along the way.  Partially due to the fact that I didn't give my ink a chance to dry and its best to dot (up and down)  the marker in areas with a lot of ink lines ( like the face).
The background is airbrushed using copic markers along with a die cut cloud that I used as a stencil.
Patches approves this project! :)
