Get ready.. this is going to be a long post! I don't normally post up more than one card in a day but with the launch of the High Hopes Challenge blog TODAY and also the release of the new stamps I was just so excited!
We have a nice easy challenge for you this week. Just make a Birthday creation and include brads in your design!!!
You'll really want to join in this week.....and here's why!!! To celebrate the kickoff of our special blog and the new HH release, Tina is giving away a HUGE prize!! One VERY lucky stamper will randomly be chosen to receive over a DOZEN of the new release stamps!!!! YES!! You read that right!! Isn't Tina generous?? Someone will receive ALL of the new Dragon stamps and coordinating sentiments!! So get out your HH stamps and get inky, girls!!!
Right.. I know you are all going to be desperate to get your hands on the new stamps so rush on over to Silly Monkey Crafts as they have all the new designs in stock NOW!
Here is my creation for the High Hopes Challenge 1. I made a birthday gift folder using the High Hopes stamp "Tink Pickin' Posies". I added some Prima flowers to give the image dimension and used brads for the flower centers. I would like to thank my friend Jakki for this great gift idea.
The stickles have only just dried and I thought you would like to see my first card with two of the stamps from the High Hopes new release today - "Fishing Santa and Christmas Fishes" sentiment. The jolly Santa was just perfect for my FIL's Christmas card as he is fishing mad! The fab papers are from one of my favourite brands Basic Grey and are from the range Figgy Pudding. The base of my card has been made using bazzill. You know my favourite colouring medium is Prismacolor pencils and Silly Monkey Crafts now stock sansodor which is perfect for blending harsh lines.
