Heidi & Mattie

Hi HH Fans!
I'm a big dog fan and have had a dog in my life for as long as I can remember! I think it's wonderful to have pets especially when you have children as the two become best friends! I am using the High Hopes stamp called "Heidi & Mattie". Don't these two look like they are the best of friends?!!
I coloured Mattie up adding some grey spots to her with my Copic Markers. My paper this time is from the Echo Park Just Be You 6x6 collection. I decided to paper piece Heidi's overalls for a fun element! The sentiment "Best Friends Forever" is also from High Hopes and goes perfectly with this image!
Here's an inside view of my card. The sentiment is part of the "Best Friends Forever" stamp. I masked off the stamp and used part of it on the front and the other part on the inside of my card. It's fun to do different things with your sentiments!
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: YR21, YR24, Y21, Y23
Shirt & shoes: R02, R05, R08
Dog: C1, C2, C3, C5, C6, C8/ G43, G46

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!

For today's card I decided to used "Swaddled Baby"from High Hopes Stamps 

I stamped the image onto watercolor paper and then colored with Prismacolor pecils. The pattern paper are from my stash. I want to keep this baby card simple but cute so I used sequins, diamond stickles, cream thread and a flower button to embellishment. That's all for today hope you have enjoyed today's post.

Light Those Candles

This cute little fireman and his dog are racing in to save the day and help you put out your birthday candles!

My younger brother was a volunteer fire fighter for years and he loved doing it. I don't think I ever saw him with a Dalmation tagging along but I did hear some fun stories over the years. 

I also don't think he would have volunteered to help me put out my birthday candles with his fire truck and hose.........well actually - he would have - he does like to bug and tease me...sigh......




I coloured this cutie with my alcohol markers and cut it out using a stitched square die and added it to some fun party paper from Photo Play. The sentiment was masked off (it is only part of a sentiment), stamped and cut out using a circle die. Some fun matching enamel dots finish off my card.

American Cowthic

Howdy - MichelleO here today and I am having so much fun pulling out some of my older favorite High Hopes Stamps. The stamp I used this week just always makes me giggle a bit...

American Cowthic - Love it! 


Seriously isn't it just one great image?? Love this cow couple! I colored with my copics (colors below) and then found a piece of bandana paper in my scraps. Seemed perfect to me. Matted on black card stock and then on a white card stock base. I sewed all the layers down and then added some Viva Decor Black Paper pen for some "dots" on the corners. Simple but it makes me happy..

Copic colors used -


Have you ever taken some time and just surfed all around the High Hopes Stamps Web site and seen all the fabulous images in their inventory? You will be amazed at just how many you fall in love with! Seriously so much fun!

Head over to the store HERE and have some fun! Happy Valentines Day!

Thanks so much -
