High Hopes Challenge 45

The challenge over at High Hopes is to use your favorite High Hopes stamp.

Well !! slight confession . . . . I only have one High Hopes stamp . . . . . but I did buy it because it has been my favorite for ages. I've made quite a few Christmas cards already this year which is an absolute first for me but when I bought this super cute 3 Pane Santa stamp from Bunny Zoe's Crafts (great customer service btw) I couldn't resist using it again & again.

The Merry Christmas stamp is from Stampin Up & is one I'd forgotten I had until I saw it on someone elses blog. The ribbon is BoBunny & is available from Click-on-Crafts in lots of different colours. The Naughty or Nice sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly & I've layered in using circle & scallop circle nesties.

The High Hopes image has been coloured using copics & finished off with stickles.The cardstock is Stampin Up & the DP is papermania.

Here is another card I've made with the same stamp but totally different colours.Good job I took photos of these yesterday as they sold this morning before I could even put them out!! Better make some more lol!!
Thanks for looking.

Copic Colour Challenge - Guest DT card

Here is my card for my Guest DT spot over at Copic Colour Challenge. The colours this week are V06 B23 & BG23. Not a good week for me as I only have one of the colours (B23) but they are quite happy for you to use your nearest colour so everyone can join in.
The image is a cute Bildmalarna sent to me by my good friend Bernie. The DP is Stampin Up as is the cardstock. The ribbon is from Click-on-Crafts & is BoBunny. They have this polka dot ribbon in lots of yummy colours & two different widths, fatal as this is my local craft shop & I find myself drifting down there every other week.

I've made the flower by cutting 3 different size circles with my nesties & distressing the edges, love making these it's quite theraputic lol!!

I've die cut the buttons from the same cardstock using a sizzlits die & have then coated them with Anita's 3D Gloss so hopefully they look realistic.

The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly & there's also been a bit of distressing going on with this!

Thanks for looking & I've really enjoyed my first DT challenge.

Sketch Saturday DT call

Sketch Saturday are looking for new DT members & have given a fab sketch to follow. Entries have to be made before Mon 14th Sept at 8.00pm UK time so if you fancy a go pop across & have a look.

I've rotated the sketch to fit the image but this is allowed as long as the original elements can be seen.I absolutely adore this image from High Hopes called 3 Pane Santa. It's sooooo cute & I've already coloured half a dozen in ready for some early Christmas cards which is totally unheard of for me lol!! I don't usually start until the end of November!!
I ordered the stamp from Nikki at Bunny Zoe's Crafts on Weds mid-day & it arrived, along with some other goodies that 'fell' into my basket, yesterday. Great customer service Nikki!!.

The image has been coloured with copics & finished off with stickles & a bit of boodling around the edge.

The papers are Papermania & the card, ribbon & charm are from my stash. The stocking has been cut using a Sizzix die & the sentiment is printed from the computer.

I've used my new Martha Stewart Doily Punch on the edge of the DP. Love this punch.

Thanks for looking.
