Gingerbread Dreams!


It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Christmas. YAY!!!  This week, I used Gingerbread House (S159) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Gingerbread Dreams (E061) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

To make this card I stamped the Gingerbread House image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool in order to give me a nice crisp image. I coloured in the image with a little guidance from Kit and Clowder’s Gingerbread house video created by Alyce. For the snow and candies, you can’t see it in this photo, but I used Spectrum Noir – Crystal Clear Sparkles. Once I finished colouring in the image, I fussy cut around it. I also stamped out the sentiment and fussy cut around that as well.

Next I used the Gingerbread Chain punch from Creative Memories to cut out my little gingerbread men and then used Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen to create the icing and a dab of Copic Marker #29 for the cheeks.

For the assembly of the card, I used 6″ x 6″ AC Autumn Cardstock for the base. I had a piece of Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper from a previous project that I had worked on and layered this on top of the Gingerbread men paper from Doodlebug Design Inc. – Milk and Cookies.

Lastly I used 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to pop up all of the images and sentiment. I added in the little red embellishments to represent the little gingerbreads dreaming of their wonderful gingerbread house. LOL!

Snow Yummy!


It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are continuing to celebrating Christmas. This little snowman is enjoying his hot tub of warm cocoa outdoors in the snow. I’m sure he’s feeling so refreshed! LOL!

I stamped the image Snow Yummy (S182) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps), coloured it in with Copics and then fussy cut around it. You can’t see it in this photo, but I added glitter on the big snowflake too. I then embossed the background and popped up the die cut of the big mug with some pop-up tape. Lastly, I popped up the image as well and then finished off the card with the sentiment Holiday All Year (H200) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) which I heat embossed onto some shiny blue cardstock.
