Hello stamping friends!!
Well it is time!! Today is the anticipated High Hopes Christmas Blog Hop and Release!!
There is candy along the Hop, but you won't know where. To be entered into the candy, you must leave a comment on the correct blog. So, you might want to leave a comment on all stops...just in case it's the candy blog!!
This release is a smaller release with 11 designs including 1 sentiment. A great way to get started on your Holiday cards!!
Since I'm the last on the hop, I wanted to create a special project using all of the snowmen illustrated by Laurie Furnell...
This is an 8 x 10 Shadowbox Frame using the new Christmas Joy Snowy, Homespun Hearts Snowy, Glowing Spirit Snowy, and Hope for Peace Snowy.
Christmas Joy Snowy comes with an arched sentiment, but I masked it off before stamping the image so that it went with the other snowmen.
The stamps were embossed in black and watercolored with Twinkling H2Os. Here's a view of the design outside of the picture frame (it's hard to photograph without getting a reflection on the glass)...
They were each cut out and attached to the background. The sentiment was created on my Silhouette machine. The DP in the banners are from My Mind's Eye Fly a Kite and then die cut using the Whimsy Pennant Banner Dies.
I added some stickles to the edge of the "snow".
You have reached the end of the hop!! Before you finish, though, we would love for you to hop back over to the High Hopes Blog to let us know which stamps you liked the best!!
Thanks for stopping by!! Happy stamping...and shopping!!
