Irish Blessing - High Hopes Stamps

I wish I would have had this card done in time to post for St. Patrick's day because the sentiment and image are perfect!
I've had this stamp and sentiment for ages and recently found it and the card worked up so quickly after I coloured and cut out the image.

Lift Off - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi there!
For today's card, I've used another of the newly released clear stamp sets from Rubbernecker Stamps and this one is Lift Off which makes a perfect card for a little guy or girl who loves stars and astrology.  These new sets are so cute and contain sentiments and several images.  I was also sent the Lift Off Dies which makes cut outs so easy to do.
I saw a galaxy background on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a go and after three separate tries, I am finally happy with the result.  It's easy enough to do if you have a few of the Distress Ink colours.  I rubbed in Salty Ocean, Festive Berries and Wild Honey in a swirly pattern onto the white cardstock.  Then I added Chipped Sapphire completely over the card base and finally, some Black Soot around the edges to darken it.  Then I went in and redid the Salty Ocean, Festive Berries and Wild Honey to brighten it up a bit.  Next step was to use the stars from the Over the Moon set and emboss them onto the background with Wow Gold Embossing Powder.  Final step for the background was to add dots with a white gel pen.
Be sure to check out the Rubbernecker Stamps blog for tons of inspiration and also the  Rubbernecker Facebook Page.  There is also a Facebook Fan Page with lots of inspiration, updates on sales & product and a great place to post your Rubbernecker Stamps creations and you can find Rubbernecker on Instagram too.

Pelican's Post

Hi there and here we are at the start of a new week.
For today's card, I am using Pelican's Post which is an older image from High Hopes.  I've had it for a long time but never had a chance to use it - I always say I like to let my stamps cure!  Anyway, we moved a couple years ago and ever since I was asked to join the One Crazy Stamper design team, I have been rooting around trying to find some of my stamps.  Finally I had a bit of success and found three but there's a few more so I'll probably obsess about that until I find them.  At any rate, I've always liked this stamp so am happy to finally use it.

Hogs & Kisses - High Hopes Stamps


Happy as a pig in mud is a saying which must be what these two are grinning about!  

I paired the Happy Pigs image with the Hogs & Kisses sentiment, both  from High Hopes stamps and I think they are a perfect match.  I decided to really mix it up
do a circular card for a change.  hahahha... not a big change but it seems like square cards is all I do lately.
