Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!
It’s Wednesday, and for my last High Hopes card for the year, I’m sharing a couple of good friends just relaxing and taking it easy! Sometimes it is nice to just chill out a bit! LOL! The stamp for the main image is called South Pole Pals R147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).
To make my card, I decided to keep it simple. I cut out the frame using Amy Design – Dies – Keep It Cool – Cool Square Frame and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Next, I stamped the image using my MISTI into the centre of the die cut. I coloured this in with the Copic markers listed below. For the outside of the die cut, I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Broken China and sponged on the ink using a dauber.
To create the background for the main image, I re-stamped the main image onto Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper and fussy cut it out. Then I placed the mask over my coloured image. Next I used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Festive Berries to create the sky. I have never tried this before, and just love the way it turned out.
For the snow, I stamped the bottom of the image with VersaMark ink and then added WOW! Embossing Glitter – White Puff Twinkle. I heated up the embossing powder with my heat gun and then added some Stickles – Diamond along the top of the snow.
Next I assembled the card onto 5.5″ x 5.5″ white AC Cardstock. I cut out a piece of 5.5″ x 5.5″ Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper and mounted it with 2 sided tape onto the base. Then I added glue to the back of the frame and centre previously cut and coloured with Zig 2 Way Glue and mounted it onto top of the card.
Lastly, I added the sentiment Magic Friendship F234 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and popped it up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to finish up the card.
