New Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone.....

Glad you could join us for our "Joys of the Seasons"
blog hop. If you have arrived here from Lora's
blog you are going in the right direction!!

For my card today I am using the adorable
"Snowman Totem"

I embossed the image in black and painted 
it with Tombow markers. The paper is 
from a Doodlebug paper pad. I used my 
falling snow embossing folder and 
an icicle punch with some gum drops.
I painted the snowmen and snow with
Heavenly H2o's.
I used these colors of Tombows....

Your next stop is Kristine....

Hope you enjoy the hop and

High Hopes New Release

Good morning everyone....

I've been having so much fun creating 
 with  High Hopes new release!!

If you haven't checked them out yet
you can find them all here!!

I love to be able to use a few images 
on one card and one of my favorite
cards has always been the 
Stair Step card!!

For my card this week I am using these
awesome Halloween images.....

"Witchy Ride"
"Boo Pals"
"Vampire Treat"
"Toil Trouble" 

I stamped the images with black ink
on watercolor paper. I stamped some 
extra bats from Witchy's hat. I painted 
the images with Zig Color Clean markers
and cut out each image. I layered the 
images onto the card with foam tape.
I used papers from Doodlebug Halloween
 paper pads and paper pieced Mummy's 
candy bag.

Zig markers used for my card are....
All white areas are painted with 
Heavenly H2o's.

High Hopes New Release

Hello everyone.....

I am so happy to see that you all 
loved our new release!!

I haven't had much time these days to 
create but I am on a roll so I thought I 
would share another card with you.

This was such an easy way to color this 
beautiful "Angel Trio" takes hardly any time at all!

I color my snowmen this way too!!

I love lots of sparkle at the best of times
 but especially on Christmas cards!!

First I embossed the image with gold embossing 
powder. I painted their faces and hands lightly 
with my 942 Tombow marker. I colored the wings, 
dresses, cloud and book with Heavenly H2o's. 
Just a touch of pink on their cheeks. I added 
 small amounts of color to the stars, holly, 
hair and socks.

The gold on the bells and socks are gold 
stickles and frosted lace stickles on the 
cloud and wings. I waited for the stickles 
to dry and if needed I added more!! A little 
dab of green here and there, some 
shading to the dresses with my 
Tombow markers and it is done!!!

I hope you like it....

Have a great day
Thanks for stopping by....
