High Hopes...

I'm VERY excited to tell you guys about a Canadian Stamp Company that I was just introduced while I was in Ontario last month...They are High Hopes Rubber StampsThey have a HUGE selection of images to choose from and you would be hard pressed not to find something you loved!

The Design Team posts their weekly challenges on Facebook every Tuesday so be sure to check out their work, they are amazing!  If you like what you see, and want to order a particular stamp, check out One Crazy Stamper as she stocks it all and ships super quick!  I am speaking with a few local stores to see about carrying the High Hopes line, so be sure to let YOUR favorite shop know that you think High Hopes Stamps are awesome!

ANNNDDDD, if that weren't enough...Guess who is a Guest High Hopes Diva...ME!  Whoo Hoo, so here is my first card for the "Embossed" challenge...
Being that this blog started out with my Dreamweaver Stencils Design Team, it seemed only fitting that my first High Hopes card would incorporate my favorite Stencils!

I used Spellbinder Craft Foil in Red, Stamped the High Hopes Santa stamp on the back and hand embossed with my stylus (well, with Sheryll's stylus as I had forgotten mine at home, thanks Sheryll!).  I then used a paper stomp to transfer the stencil image to the background, sanded with a sanding block and mounted it all together!

This Santa is a little different than the other High Hopes samples you will see, but that's sort of why I did him that fact, as I upload more of my High Hopes samples, my plan is to incorporate different techniques to show you how you can look at ALL your stamps in a whole new light...

So, let's have some fun, shall we...

Scatter Joy!
