New High Hope Stamps

The girls had a great day out today with Nanny and Grandad which gave me a little time to play with some of the new fish characters from the High Hopes new releases. I made this card for the girls to give their Nanny when we go to visit her next week. We are going to Plymouth's National Marine Aquarium so these stamps were just perfect. They would be great for any summer card or holiday themed project. All stamps are available to buy in the store.

Medium: Prismacolor, Sansodor & Paper stumps, Sakura Stardust and Stickles
Paper: Karen Foster "Bubbles", Bazzill, SU Only Orange Card Stock

Sarah and ProMarker Pens

Another Sarah card.. these stamps are just too adorable!! and you can find them here..

This time she is coloured in with the new Promarker pens.. they are a joy to use, come in a large range of fabulous colours.. but I did need some practise with them as it is totally different to the way I normally colour images.. I so love how this turned out though and will give a better review of these pens real soon!

High Hopes Bethany

Today I have used High Hopes Bethany. Isn't she just gorgeous and is one of my favourite High Hope stamps. The paper I have used is from a Dovecraft pack and is called Retro Floral. There are some really gorgeous and bright designs in this paper pack and it is such great value. There are loads of great High Hopes stamps over in the store and we are so exited that we will soon be stocking stamps from their new range.

Once upon a time - Lizzie Anne Designs

I have made this bookmark for one of Zoe's friends. The bookmark is made out of Tim Holtz idea-ology Grungeboard which is fabulous stuff as it is so tough and flexible. I have stained it with VersaMagic Chalk ink. The fun little stamps are from the Once upon a time set by Lizzie Anne Designs. The princess and her hat are separate stamps so I stamped the princesses hat first then masked it to then stamp the princess. This set if fabulous value and contains so many other little bits (including the swirl) and comes in a jewel case. It is an ideal set for birthday cards and party invitations for your little princess. If you pop over to the store you will see we have a great range of these new stamps.

Bookmark details:
Stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs "Once upon a Time"
Medium: ProMarkers, Twinkling H2o's, Sakura stardust pen
Paper: Tim Holtz Ideo-ology Grunge board
Embellishments: Ribbon - Rebecca's Scrapbooking kit, PM Adhesive Pearls
Equipment: Cricut Expression - Mickey's font cartridge
