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!!!!

Spring is here!


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share these adorable hedgehogs who are so excited to smell the beautiful spring blossoms growing on the trees. I used Hedgies Spring Loaded (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) to create the scene. I added a little bit more to the tree off to the side.

I thought it would be fun to try colouring this stamp using various watercolour mediums and brushes.

I started off by stamping the image onto Arches Watercolour Paper, 140 lb. Cold Press.

Then I used a mixture of Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Derwent Watercolour pencils and a paint palette.

I created the clouds by using a cotton ball and soaked into a little bit of water and then tapping it onto the paper to lift some of the watercolour. Finally, I used Pigma Micron 02 Archival Ink Pen to outline the flowers and the Hedge Hogs. For the noses, I used a Sakura Glaze – Black Pen.

Supplies Used:

Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers: Chocolate, Sepia, TerraCotta

Derwent Watercolour Pencils: Brown Ochre 57, Raw Sienna 58, Copper Beach 61, Vandyke Brown 55

Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Ground Espresso, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Gathered Twigs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry, Krafty Kolours – Totally Taupe Mini Ink Cube

Ai Watercolor Essentials Palette

Background Paper: Recollections – Petite Floral – Double Sided 12 x 12 in (30.4 x 30.4 cm)

MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool

Brushes: Talkon H.I. Series – 970 White – #4, Legacy – Folk Art 1837 Perfect Liner #1, Bette Byrd “Aqua-Sable” 1600 Filbert 1\4

Ribbon: Ribbon Trends – Organdy Ribbon 029 White

Hope you like it and have a fantastic week!

Happy Father’s Day


Sharing a card that I made for my dad for Father’s Day this year!

My dad is a magnificent carpenter and can build just about anything. He built our entire family home, my portable spinning wheel, and after building multiple miniature airplane models, decided to build a real one. He has also built many other items throughout the years.

He built his airplane in our basement along with my uncle and then had to remove a basement window and part of the front wall to get it out. LOL! It really was quite something to witness. He taught us that if you put your mind to it and you dream about it, then you could do it. Or at least try to do it.

The plane had passed inspection with flying colours and it was really a lot of fun going up into the air with him, as I love to fly too. Not a pilot, but I do love to fly! LOL!

On the front of the card I printed out the digital stamp from Lily of the Valley – The Workbench, then coloured it in with Copic markers using the lessons from Kit and Clowder Technique class taught by Alyce Keegan. I highly recommend Kit and Clowder tutorials as they have helped me come a long way in my colouring techniques over the past couple of years. She really does break it down and make it easy for you to follow.

Stamped the sentiment using Peachy Keen Stamps – PCSC-05 May 2012. Stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Ground Espresso and then heat embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Included a close-up of the image.

On the inside I printed out the digital image from The Paper Shelter – The Aviator. I then coloured in the image using my Copic markers and did the background using my Spectrum Noir markers. I also created my own sentiment for my dad.

Included a close-up of the image.

Here is a close-up of the Panda.

For the background papers I used Bo Bunny – Felicity (12 in. x 12 in.) double sided paper.
