Spring Loaded

Happy Wednesday OCS Fans! 

I have had a ton of fun playing with all of the images in the High Hopes Think Spring release! 

This week I chose to use the "Hedgies Spring Loaded" stamp and the "Spring Is In The Air" sentiment.  These two just make me smile! We all need a little help from our friends once and awhile don't we? I added some freckles and belly buttons to them just for fun. 

 My card layout is done based on this month's challenge sketch - have you played along yet? I changed a few things to "make it my own" as they say - I added my sentiment to the top corner instead of a banner and the third piece of paper behind the stamp was switched out for a fun die shape. 

The stamp was using my Misti and coloured with alcohol markers, cut out using a stitched rectangle die and mounted on patterned paper from Bo Bunny. All of the edges were inked with a matching brown ink. Some matte enamel dots and ribbon finish off my card.  

Card Recipe 
Stamps: Hedgies Spring Loaded (TT120) - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Spring Is In The Air (HH059) - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper:Aryia's Garden - Bo Bunny

Hello Sunshine

Thanks for popping by! This week my card features "Willow" and the "Hello Sunshine" sentiment from the Think Spring new release at High Hopes Rubber Stamps. 
To be honest, I have stepped out of my colour comfort zone with this one. This is the first time I am using black for hair colour and black in my card layout. It was fun to push myself out of my creative box with a little help from a super talented crafter and friend Cheri - thank you for the push!

Without further ado, let me introduce you to Willow.

 I coloured my stamp with alcohol markers  and cut it out with a stitched oval die. Stickles on the dots in her hair, the flower stem and the bottom of her dress gave me the little bit of sparkle I love to include on my cards. A black frame cut with a floral oval was the perfect touch, along with a butterfly banner in matching colours. The sentiment is stamped directly on my patterned paper - love my Misti for this! Some enamel dots finish off my card. 

Card Recipe 
Stamps: Willow (TT122) - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Hello Sunshine (HH057) - High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Patterned Paper:Petal Lane - Bo Bunny
