Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
TGIF!!! For today's post, I have a card showcasing a couple of new release stamps! Don't forget to check below for details, on how you could WIN some cute High Hopes Stamps of your very own!!!
This is Penguin Giver (TT044) and Loads of Wishes sentiment (HH030). Such an adorable image on this card, to give to that special someone this Christmas!
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image and sentiment (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it (white embossing powder on the sentiment). To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used. After the colouring was finished and dry, glossy accents were applied on the bows of all the gifts and on the penguin's beak and feet. Some Ranger Ice Stickles-Crystal Ice were applied on the fur of the penguin's hat for some added glitter. You can never have enough sparkle on a Christmas card! LOL!
For the card base and image layer, I decided on a piece of SU Black cardstock. The designer paper is from Carta Bella-Christmas Delivery 6x6 Paper Pad. The frame of the main image was die cut using a MFT die called Wonky Stitched Rectangles. A strip of snowflake ribbon was adhered along the bottom of the card. To complete this card, the sentiment was popped up with foam tape for some added dimension, along with a small pompom for the penguin's hat (inspired by fellow design diva, Donna R.) and three YNS Gumdrops.
