High Hopes Challenge 53 - Recipe


Happy Sunday! Hope your having a great weekend....

This challenge over at the High Hopes blog our super talented Diva Karen has given us a recipe to work with.... 3-2-1

3 Flowers, 2 brads, 1 sentiment

No excuses not to join in and you have the chance to ink up a High Hopes stamp of your choice this week! Maybe you have had enough of Christmas cards and fancy creating something a little different ;-) Remember to enter our challenges you need to use High Hopes Rubber Stamps!!!

The random winner of this weeks challenge will receive the stamp Woodland Santa.



If you are looking to purchase High Hopes stamps I have a great selection in my store. If the stamp you are after is sold out... I have a new delivery arriving tomorrow so you can always email me and i'll put it by!!!

Here's a little about my card - The fun santa stamp is Santa in Chimney. Santa is coloured in prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I have added lots of stickle sparkle to his hat and chunky glitter for the snowy effect. The gorgeous papers are from the My Minds Eye stack - Signature Christmas glitter. The Christmas stacks are currently a whooping 25% off but be quick as I only have a couple left and will not be replacing stock. In the center of my flowers I added white 4mm flat backed pearls and also some more stickles... the brads were quite shimmery but again a dollop of stickles gave them extra sparkle! lol

Be sure to check out the teams gorgeous cards for your inspiration!

Have a great day!

Hugs,
