High Hopes Blog Hop ~ Release Day!

Happy Thursday to you all! To celebrate High Hopes brand new release, we are having a blog hop!

If you did not come here from Jeanne’s blog, then you should start back at the beginning at the High Hopes Challenge blog and just hop along the links! There are prizes hidden along the way so don’t forget to leave a comment at each Diva’s blog for a chance to win some new release goodness!

2011 - Page 082

For my card today, I have used this sweet little bear and this fun matching sentiment. His official name is Sitting Buddy with Balloon”. I think he is just the cutest thing.

He was colored up with Copic markers and I found some old October Afternoon paper that was just the right shade of red to match his bow and balloon. I added it to a Kraft card base and machine stitched it.

I attached a Basic Grey button which I tied on with some baker’s twine. I added a little interest to the ribbon treatment by adhering it with scor-tape and notching one end. I added another piece of 1/8” scor-tape to the front of the ribbon and then sprinkled some MS giltter on top. Such an easy little technique but it adds so much to the look of the card!

Our new release it filled with such incredible new stamps: teddy bears, robots, rag dolls and of course dragons! I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!

The new stamps are available today at the High Hopes store, our Diva’s stores other retailers:

Your next stop is the lovely Debby’s blog where I am sure she has something gorgeous to show you!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs Jeanette xxo

Such a bright, happy, lovely birthday card and love the simpler layout that really makes the image itself the main profile and allows it to "pop" like it should. Very striking - Awesome Bear !!!
