Nordic Night Snowy Delight!


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and today I’m sharing a card that I made using the image Nordic Snowman with Bird (TLF010) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) from our latest Christmas release. I just love the serenity of this image.  I grew up in Northern Canada and have always loved snow. It’s always so beautiful watching it come down from the sky. Not so much fun when you have to shovel it or drive through a snow storm, but other than that, it is quite beautiful! LOL! Did you grow up where there was a lot of snow too?

To make my card, I first stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. Then I ran the stamped image through my Cuttlebug and die cut it with Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames.

I decided to colour in the sky first with various blue Copic markers. After I coloured in the sky, I added in the falling snow using Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen.

I thought the sweater looked Scandinavian, so I decided to colour it similar to some Scandinavian  sweaters that I’ve seen in the past. I used Sakura Glaze – Black pen to pop up the eyes and smile on the snowman and lastly added some Stickles – Diamond for the pom-poms on the hat and along the top of the snow on the sweater. I also coloured over top of the black snowflakes with Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #5 Pen on the sweater and hat.

For the snow at the bottom of the snowman, I used the same die-cut, Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames, to cut out the base using Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper. I then ran this same paper through my Cuttlebug again, this time using the die cut from Lawn Fawn – Stitched Hillside Borders. Next I popped it up on the image using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

I die-cut some patterned paper using Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214) that I had in my stash and then popped up the coloured snowman image onto it using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

For the sentiment I used Winter Delight (G114) (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). I stamped the sentiment and then die-cut it out using Craftin Desert Diva’s – Tag Essentials Dies. Then I went around the border of the die-cut with Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear pen and drew in some small snowflakes.

I then die-cut some snowflakes using Poppy – Simple Snowflakes (Style 1931) from Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper. Once the snowflakes were all cut out, I ran them through my small Xyron to make them into stickers.

To assemble the card, I started with a base of 6″ x 6″ white AC cardstock. Next I mounted American Crafts – Wonderland Collection paper for my background. I chose this particular pattern as I thought it matched the image so well. I attached the mounted snowman directly to the background paper using 2-sided tape. I popped up my sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Added my snowflakes and then finished off the card by adding in little gems in the centre of each snowflake and 1 on the sentiment.

I tried to colour the image to be the same as my friend’s favourite chair and her special little kitty too! For the main image and sentiment I used Happiness is Reading – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.

Happy 30th Anniversary!


Hi There,

Last week, I celebrated my 30th Anniversary with my loving husband. For our wedding our theme was bears, so I when I saw this image from Critter Celebration (Penny Black Stamps), I fell in love with it. My husband loved his card too when I gave it to him!

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.
