Polar Bears Visit Santa


Hi There! Sharing a Christmas card that I made using Polar Bears Visit (Di’s Digital Stamps). I just thought this image was so adorable and helps to celebrate the magic of Christmas!

To make this card I printed the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock using Grayscale. Using grayscale prevents the image from smudging when you go to colour it. I coloured in the image with various Copic markers which are listed below and then added in the snow on the bottom of the sleigh with DecoArt Snow-Tex. I love the texture of the snow with this product. After completing everything, I mounted the image onto the background papers using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

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!

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Gingerbread House (S159) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Gingerbread Dreams (E061) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Woodland Santa


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans

It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Christmas. YAY!!!  This week, I used Woodland Santa – R098 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and a sentiment from our new release called O Christmas Tree – GLL002 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).

To create the scene, I cut out various sizes of trees and then used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to colour them. I also cut out various layers of snow from Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper. Other pieces from the same paper, I just tore for a variation in the snow. I ran all of the little trees and snow through the Xyron Creative Station which made it much easier to put the scene together. Lastly, I popped up the image and sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
