Hey There.....Friend!!


Is this just the cutest image, or what??? ANOTHER one of the new High Hopes releases that somebody will be winning on Friday!!!

This stamp is called Ice Cream for Two and I just think it is too adorable!! I made it especially for my nephew who looks just like this with his blonde curly hair! Except his dog is black and it just wouldn't show up as well on the card.....so I changed poor Max's hair colour!! It's called creative license, right?? Baaahahhhahahaha!! I'm sure he'll like it anyway!!

I stamped the darling duo on shimmery white cardstock in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured them in using my SU markers. Now Melissa Craig keeps leaving me such lovely comments about my colouring and saying that I need to do a tutorial, but I really don't think it's all that fabulous, to be quite honest!!! I'd LOVE to get some of the Copic Markers which are alcohol based markers and they BLEND, but alas, they are much too expensive for me. Maybe I'll have to ask for some for Christmas........from everyone I know. But in the meantime, I'll work on a tutorial using my handy dandy SU markers, especially for Melissa!! And hey....thanks for the sweet comments!! You make me blush!!

Anyhooooo, back to the card!! The patterned paper that I used is from the Simply Scrappin' Kit called Friends and Flowers that was a Hostess reward last year. It was the first time I had cracked it open, because I was hoarding...I mean, SAVING it!! Then the other day I was going through my SS kits and realized that I actually have not one, not two, but THREE unopened packages!! *giggle* So I decided it was time to use one!! Sooooo, the colours I chose were taken from the stripey paper. I decided not to doodle on this card, which was hard for me but I decided to leave it alone and I'm glad I did. I matted the focal image on Rose Red, So Saffron and then Chocolate Chip. The card base is a Tempting Turquoise square and I used the Photo Corner punch and some eyelets and some grosgrain ribbon to 'tie' it all together!! I stamped some pawprints on the base, added the Hey There sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink and pop dotted the main image!!

I really hope these card featuring the new images are teasing you, because you still have two more days to get your entries in to the Kard Kontest!! I've received many gorgeous pictures of cards and there's still time for more!! So get stampin' and send them in!!

I just recently purchased some of the high hope stamps online and I absolutely love them - I have ordered a few more this past week again - I love to color and I love how these stamps lend themselves to that. I would also love a tutorial from you on your coloring with the stampin up markers. You do a great job! Look forward to knowing your coloring secret.
