Happy Retirement Bros!


Sharing some cards that I made for my 2 brothers who both retired recently.

My older brother was a Fireman for many years and worked his way up to being a Captain. My younger brother worked for the Ontario Provincial Police Force (OPP) in various roles and became a Sergeant.  My brother in the OPP worked with forensics and we used to ask him how much of what we saw in TV shows was actually real. He thought it was amazing at how fast they could solve a crime and wishes it was that easy! LOL!

I am very happy for them both, but jealous at the same time. LOL!

I decided to make them both very simple cards and to do them both the same only changing the colours to match their professions. The red is for the fireman and the blue is for the police officer.

To make the cards I used various Tim Holtz inks to create my own background on a 5.25″ x 4.25″ background using the sentiment from Your Next Stamp –  Photo Booth Thumbs UP – CYNS709. Next I coloured in both of the images with Copic markers the same and then coloured in one background in various reds and the other in blues.

Next I used my Cuttlebug to die cut  Photo Booth Polaroid die (YNSD735) – (Your Next Stamp) and then embossed the sentiment using the same stamp set as above. I then attached the image to the die cut and popped it up with some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

On the inside of the card, I used Your Next Stamp – Cool Tees – CYNS714 for the image and sentiment. Again I coloured up both images to represent their professions. Showing the inside of the 2 cards below.

Unfortunately, I still have to work for a little while longer! LOL! But, someday, my day for retirement will also come.

Congratulations to my 2 brothers, you both worked hard, sometime with long periods away from your families and and now you both deserve some time to enjoy life. Have fun!

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.
