Fright Night! Beware!!!!

Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Hallowe’en.  This week, I used Monty Q109  (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).

I thought it would be fun to make him come out of a scary forest with the full moon behind him. I darkened the Birch trees in the background with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Hickory Smoke so that it would look like they were further in the background. Hallowe’en is coming and Monty is ready for a frightfully good time! Beware!!!!

Bee Tag

Hi There,

Sharing a tag I made for the Challenge at JessicaLynn Original called Challenge #5 – Create Your Best Tag.


I work with a lady who is a beekeeper. I thought this would be perfect to give her the next time I purchase some more fresh honey. MMMMM, it is sooo good!!!

To make the tag, I used the bee from JessicaLynn Original Big Fat Bumble Bee digi. I sized it multiple times and arranged their position using Microsoft Word and then printed it out to colour.d

Used Spectrum Noir markers to colour bee and then added a little yellow texture with PrismaPremier coloured pencil.

The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva’s “Just Because” Stamps for “Buzzing by….” and “to say”. (I covered up the “hi” with tape before I stamped it.

The sentiment “Thank You!” is from My Creative Time – Hey There Little Lady.

For the tag, I used the tag die from SpellBinders “Tags and Flags” – S5-095 and shortened it.

Coloured around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mustard Seed and a little dauber.

Finished it off with some black and yellow ribbon.

Hope you like it!
