High Hopes new release blog hop!

Welcome to stop # 8 of 11 on the High Hopes Christmas Release Blog Hop!

You should have come here from the talented Kristine (if not, feel free to go back and see her gorgeous creation!).

And your next visit will be to the lovely Alex!

This is the lovely new "Christmas Joy" snowman from High Hopes that will be available to purchase on Thursday!  Don't miss out on your order for one of these GORGEOUS new stamps!  I must admit that I really dragged my heels on getting out the Christmas crafting supplies this month.  Especially since I'm still wearing shorts and I HATE saying goodbye to summer every year :-(  BUT these cute little snowmen have helped "ease" me into the spirit!

If you've been following my posts this week leading up to the official release date, I am continuing with my colour scheme for my cards with the GORGEOUS new Bo Bunny Blitzen paper.  DEFINITELY my fave of the new Christmas papers so far!  A perfect match with Stampin' Up kraft paper.  I've added the coordinating cardstock stickers, and accented with a beautiful Prima flower I had left from last year, and some self-adhesive pearls.  Those who follow me know my love with the Spellbinders nestability dies, and this is one of my favourite, labels ten.

I've stamped my little snowman on Copic XPress It with Memento ink in Tuxedo black and coloured him with my Copics.  I always look for an opportunity to use some BG's!

Copic colours:  BG18, BG15, BG13, BG11, BG10, E55, E53, E51, R39, R37, R35, R32, W3, W1, W0, W00, YG17, YG25, YG03, YR12.

I am a proud member of the Scrappin' Great Deals design team, and I'll certainly be featuring these High Hopes stamps on my blog posts over there as they become available for sale.  Maybe I'll even teach with them this fall!  By the way - there is an AWESOME sale on over there right now.....
