High Hopes Blog Hop

High Hopes Stamps - Page 017

Happy Wednesday! OMGosh! It is finally here. High Hopes is releasing its new collection of stamps illustrated by Dustin Pike! Of course we are celebrating with a Blog Hop!

If you have come here from Melanie’s blog then you are on track. If not, start -->here<—at the HH Challenge blog. You don’t want to miss any of this! There is a chance to win 4 prizes along the way. All you have to do is to make sure to comment on each Diva’s blog because the prizes are on random Diva blogs. There will be one main prize of the FULL Release and then 3 prizes of stamp packages. (Also there is a prize if you participate in the challenge this week at the HH Blog -->here<--)

I created a fun little outer-space scene card using 4 of the new stamps. The little alien in the crater is actually a separate stamp but I thought he would look pretty cool on the space scene! I cut away the front of the card to create an aperture and framed the opening with a Spellbinders shape.

When opened you get the full view of the space scene as well as this amazing sentiment. This is such a great motivating sentiment. It is so true!

High Hopes Stamps - Page 019

I took a picture of the side view of the card. You can see here that I have 4 layers here. This is the perfect scene to do this with. I stamped it out 4 times and airbrushed each one with slightly different hues of ink. Then I cut them out and layered them, slipping the little alien between the top two layers. Everything is mounted on foam dimensionals. I forgot to take a picture of the markers that I used. So sorry. I had a lot of cards going on all at once.

I love how this card turned out. Only one problem….both my older boys want it………I see a lot of cutting, airbrushing, and foam dimensionals in my future! LOL!

High Hopes Stamps are available at:

The next stop on the blog hop is the lovely and talented Amy W.

I hope you enjoy hopping your way through all the new creations! Have a great day!
