Birthday Clown

Happy Friday High Hopes Fans!

Lots of birthday's this month at the office so I have been busy making big birthday cards.

This one is a big 5 x 7 card.

The words are by Sizzix.



The image is Juggles from High Hopes.

I colored him with Prisma color pencils (orange, cardinal red, yellow, spring green, turquoise, violet)

I blended the pencil with gamsol and blending stumps.
I used Classic Oval and Classic scallop oval dies by Spellbinder.


I just love this fun, happy clown.
He's perfect for kids and adults alike!

I hope you enjoyed today's birthday card.
Thanks for stopping by!

One of the gals at work had her child hood dog put down over the weekend and I wanted to make her a card from the team to cheer her and let her know we were thinking of her.

This is a 5 x 7 card.


I used Bear2stamp and the coordinating Bear dies.


I colored the bear with colored pencils.
The paper is from the Love Store Collection.


She really enjoyed the card and has it out on her desk!

I am going to make a few more to have on hand for anytime I need to send Bear Hugs to someone!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sparkly Ornaments

Happy Hump Day!

The week is half over and the count down to the weekend has begun!
I am planning on getting out some stamps and glitter to play this weekend and I hope you get to play too!

If you get to play, you will want to try this fun technique that I used to create this card!

This was such a fun card to make.
I created the background using the Glitzy Adhesive technique.



I used the build a wreath die set to die set cut the various sized circles out of Sticky Panel and then covered it with Teal, lime green, gold, and red micro glitter.


The image is by House Mouse®  Designs-
Ornament Collecting from Stampendous.


I colored it with Prisma Color pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.
The image was cut with Fitted Frames B dies.

Donut Worry, Be Happy

Stephanie shared today's card on one of her videos last week but I am going to share it on my blog today!




I created my own background paper with the tiny donut from the Donuts2stamp set.
I used the Patterns4donuts stamp set too!



Here is the other side when it is "flipped" open!


Here is a closer look and the images.


I love this set!
Just gotta find some more hours in the day so I can stamp!

Life Without Dogs...

Hello High Hopes Fans!

I hope you've had a great week.
I haven't had a lot of stamping time but I did find enough time to play with one of the new images.

This is Puppy Pals.


I colored the image with Black and Burnt Ochre Prisma color pencils.
I blended the pencil with gamsol and blending stumps.


The sentiment is Life without dogs.
I used Spellbinder dies and a paw print brad from eyeletoutlet.com


I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration.

See you next week!
