Summer Banner Using...Ice Cream For Two!

Happy Monday High Hopes Friends!
I have been working over the week on seasonal home decor for my home. 
This week I have created a Summer banner using "Ice Cream For Two"
from High Hopes Stamp

I saw this design paper in my paper stock and knew this 
was perfect for this stamp!!! 

The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured with alcohol markers. Once the images were coloured I fussy cut it leaving a small white border. I die cut the banner using the scallop border die from Avery Elle. Since I couldn't find the right ribbon for my banner, I dyed a couple of  yards of seam binding ribbon with Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, Broken China, and Twisted Citron distress inks.

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!
