Boo Pals!

Hello stampers!  I hope you all enjoyed the One Crazy Stamper/High Hopes blog hop yesterday - and if you happened to miss it, just head over to the OCS blog and scroll down (after you've checked out my card, of course!!) and you'll be able to link up to all the wonderful creations on the hop.  Today I'm featuring one of the newly released High Hopes images, Boo Pals SS007:
 Isn't that little ghost the cutest?  I coloured my image with Copic markers, and fussy cut around the top of the image.  I've used some fun Doodlebug papers and my favourite embellie - Gumdrops from Your Next Embellie.  Here's a ghost close-up:

Chair Spinner

*This is my second blog post today!  Please scroll down to see the High Hopes/OCS blog hop! 
Have you tried the fabulous Ai Spinners??  They're such fun to assemble - I have a fairly simple one to share today, but one of my favourite things is to figure out new & interesting ways to put these together.  They make fabulous easel cards, and there are all kinds of options with windows & fancy folds.  **You should definitely check out the Art Impressions Pinterest board - there is a link on the blog sidebar - you'll find all kinds of ideas for the spinners and the entire collection of Ai products.  Enough chatter... here is Chair Spinner (Sku #4574):
I find this the quickest way to put a spinner together.  After colouring and fussy cutting each image, I sandwich a piece of thread between them when gluing them back to back (make sure to glue the thread down well so that the spinner is strong enough).  I find thread spins well and works well, but string or twine can work, too.  As long as you have at least one additional layer of paper or cardstock, you can hide the ends of the thread between them so that the inside of your card remains clean as well.  Here's a back view of her spinning:
Happy stamping!

High Hopes Blog Hop!

It's September!  And the One Crazy Stamper Design Team is hopping along with the High Hopes Design Team to help launch the latest HH stamp collection!  And oh my, it's awesome!  There will be all kinds of inspiration happening over the next few days, so you'll want to visit the blogs from both teams to catch it all.  You should be coming here from the talented Cheri Burry's blog.  I have a wonderful holiday image that I adored colouring.  Here are the Snowy Couple TT016:
 I love the chocolate brown/aqua colour combo of this patterned paper from Carta Bella, so I coloured my image to match.  I added both Stickles and some chunky glitter to the icicle border and snowflakes, so it's fairly sparkly in person.  The sentiment is Think Snow 2 HH006:
 There are all kinds of Halloween/Holiday/Winter images in the new High Hopes release (I'll be posting a sweet Halloween one tomorrow!).  Your next stop is Carolina's blog, so head on over to see her awesome talents at work.

Live Laugh Love

 I am posting on the Art Impressions blog today!  The summer is ending... so I found myself reaching for fall tones when I was choosing my papers and markers for today's card.  The outfits worn by the ladies just made me think of cooler days.  I have a square card today, featuring one of the images from the Live Laugh Love set #AiCS15 that is available at Hobby Lobby stores:
 This was fun to colour - their expressions just make you want to smile :o)
 I used two of the five sentiments in the set on today's card, here's the fun one that I put on the inside:

More Candles

 I have a bright & bold birthday card to share today, using one of the new Art Impressions wood-mounted stamps that is available in AC Moore stores, More Candles:
 I kept my card fairly simple (those bright papers do all the work!), just adding a scalloped die cut, some zigzag stitching and a few buttons.  The finished card is 5 1/2" square.  Happy stamping!
