Go Vegan!

Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Fall.  This week, I made a pop-up card using Tom’s Plea (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) who is pleading with everyone to go Vegan! Unfortunately, for Tom, I will probably still have Turkey for Thanksgiving! For me, Tofu turkey is just not as good. I’m sure he will still be able to sway quite a few people though. Actually, for years, we had ravioli and meatballs for Thanksgiving, because I used to work in the food industry creating the weekly food flyers, by the time Thanksgiving day came , I didn’t even want to hear the word “turkey”. LOL!

Card all popped up.

Dancing Snowmen Friends

Sharing a card that I made using High Hopes Rubber Stamps: Dancing Snowman Friends – TT139 and High Hopes Rubber Stamps: Holly Jolly KK048.

Went away for a really fun Scrapbooking weekend with the ladies from One Crazy Stamper and Scrapbook Niagara. One of the contests was to come up with card or Scrapbooking layout using the design and papers provided. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to do it again next year!

Here is the creation that I cam up with.

Close-up of the snowmen:

Stamped the images with Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI. I then coloured all of the images in with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. Then added in some snow using Wink of Stella – Glitter White, Nuvo Glitter Accents and sprinkling on some DecoArt Glamour Dust. For the sky I used Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point.
