Magical Moments....

Welcome HH Fans;

For today's post, I have used the "Wizard in Training" from the High Hopes Stamps latest release called "A Magical Day".   It would be nice if she could do some magic that would bring us some spring.

Today's card is on the clean and simple side.  The two side panels were created by using the Vintage Border Hot Foil Stamp and the GoPress and Foil machine to foil them.  This machine can foil embossing folders as well as wafer thin dies.

Supplies used:

Until next time, happy crafting

Fairy Garden Magic

This week my card features the Fairy Garden and Twinkle Fairy from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

I have heard you have to be very, very quiet and pull the plants back slowly and if you're lucky, very lucky you will see a magical garden. I chose to put my garden behind a circle cut out to mimic that. 

Both of these stamps are coloured with alcohol markers and the fairy is hand fussy cut. I added some sparkle to her wings with Stickles and to some of the flowers in the garden. I wanted to keep my paper on the more subtle side to keep the focus on this beautiful garden and fairy. Some branches and sparkle gumdrops finish off my card.

Twinkle Fairy

Howdy - MichelleO here today for High Hopes Stamps I made sure to have lots of bling. The new Twinkle Fairy HAS to have lots of bling.. every fairy does! 

She is colored with my copics (colors below) and then LOTS of Ranger Stickles for that bling. My paper is an older piece of Scribble Scrabble That I sewed down with a zig zag stitch. The sentiment is also new from High Hopes - "Leave Room in Your Garden for the fairies to dance"

Then I needed a little garden.. so I added some Martha Stewart leaves punches and Mulberry flowers.

I like how fun my card with all the bling came out. No matter what mood you are in a Fairy flying over with lots of bling can make you happy!

Copic colors used -

I hope you enjoyed too!

Magical Moments!

Hi HH Fans!
Today I wanted to share with you my very first "Z Fold" card!  The card is cool as if folds flat but then........
When you open it up it reveals more card and stands up really well with the "Z fold". I thought these 2 sweet little images would pair so cutely together! I am using the High Hopes  "Little Wizard" and "Wizard In Training".
I decided to pull out some Halloween papers from the Doodlebug Boos & Brews 6x6 collection to use today! I thought they were perfect to match the theme of my card! I added the HH "Magical Moments" sentiment. This card was fun and so easy to make! I followed along with a video tutorial you can find HERE.
Here you get a better view of the "Z" and the way you can decorate the card.
