Watercolor Friendship Card!


Good morning High Hopes Fans,
I don't normally created Get Well or Sympathy cards, but I did it. Something out of my comfort zone perhaps. I have created this card using two sentiments from 
High Hopes Stamps

First I die cut a stitched oval out of distress watercolor paper. Carefully used just the flowers out of "With Deepest Sympathy" stamp and mask the sentiment with tape. I stamped the flowers with VersaMark and used some Black Sparkle distress ink, then heat set it. I wait just a moment for the paper to cool down and stamped "Love & Hugs" using the same technique. My stamping is done so now is the fun part...I coloured the main panel with my Gansai Tambi watercolors and lots of clean water. 

I used white cardstock and one of my favorite embossing folder for the background. For finishing touches, I pop the oval with foam tape for dimension and added 4mm sparkling sequins. 


Here is a close up!
Hope I have inspired you to created something pretty today. 
Don't forget to leave me a comment I LOVE to hear from You!

I hope you had a great Easter Day?
We did!...We spend the day at church, with friends and family!

My post today features one of the newest stamps called "Bunny Blossoms" and the sentiments are from the "Woodland Friends Release".

The image was embossed in black onto watercolor paper and watercolour with *Gansai Tambi watercolors. I added some tiny pearls and clears gems after my image was dry. I want this card to showcase my watercolor image, so kept it simple. To finish I adhesive a strip of dark brown cardstock to the card base.

Easter Tags!


Hello High Hopes Fans.
Carolina here back with some Easter tags using Hugs Kisses Easter Wishes one of the new sentiment from High Hopes New Think Spring release!

With Easter just a few days away I am putting together some treats for my co-worker and school teachers. Treats bags are something I enjoy doing every season for my love ones. And LOVE how this sentiment fit just perfect on my tags!

First I stamped this cute sentiment  Hugs Kisses Easter Wishes on Very Vanilla cardstock and fussy cut it. I check on my stack of cardstock to see what color I die cut a few tags with a Avery Elle tag die.  To finish my tags I Adhesive a few 'Prima' paper flowers and add some stickles in the middle for some sparkle. Got some M&M chocolates and cellophane clear bags and my treats bags are all done!

Here is a close up!
