High Hopes Challenge - Snowflakes


Back again today with a second post :-) This time for this weeks High Hopes Challenge.

This week our wonderful Diva Amy L is asking us to show Snowflakes on our cards. How easy it that!! With Christmas getting closer it's a great opportunity to get cracking with your seasonal cards! So no excuses not to join in ;-) You could have snowflakes on your papers, snowflake charms, punched snowflakes, stamp snowflakes, snowflake embellishments... I think you get the picture!

Remember to enter our challenges you need to use High Hopes Rubber Stamps!!!

The random winner of this weeks challenge will receive the below cute stamp Three pane Santa and Sentiment "Peeking, Poking, Shaking".

If you are looking to purchase High Hopes stamps I have a great selection here in my store.

Now a little about my card today... With the girls being on half-term this week and also the Halloween festivities I needed to make a quick card for our challenge today. One of my favourite High Hopes images for quick cards is Meowy Christmas. She is so adorable peeking out from under her hat and so quick to colour. I used nestabilities labels 9 to cut her out and then sponged around her using VersaMagic Pixie Dust chalk. My cute kitty is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. This little kitty will sure be used lots each year!

Check out the teams gorgeous cards at our challenge blog for your inspiration. Their cards are stunning as always!

Don't forget my earlier post today for Kraftin' Kimmies Stamp new release. If you leave a comment on my Antoinette card you will have the chance of winning a Kraftin' Kimmie package!!!

Hi Nikki! What a gorgeous card! I don't have any wintery High Hopes yet, so I don't think I'll be playing along this week, unless I can get really creative with one of the stamps I do have. I just love this image, my daughter would go crazy over it!

Georgia said...

Oh wow, this is gorgeous Nikki! I love pink and green together - one of my favourite colour combos! Your colouring is amazing and I love that sentiment! :)
Love, Georgia xx
