Thanks so much for coming by the past few days. Your comments have been so positive and wonderful. I so appreciate your support!
Today's the big day of the High Hopes release of all of the wonderful images by Laurie Furnell. I'm so excited that I am the first stop on the blog hop tour. I'm so excited to show you this card for a couple of reasons. First, I love this image of Laurie's. It is my first Winter card for the Winter season. And two, it is a 3-D kinda card and you know how much I love to do dimensional cards. Here it is:
Is that little snowman fun or what? When I saw him, I pictured this card in my head immediately. I believe this is a version of a stair step card. I could see him ski jumping over snowy hills. Take a look at the close-up:
Look at those shiny, cool glasses! LOL I colored them with a silver gel glitter pen. I also used the same pen and dotted the trees. The tree stamp by the way is by Stampscapes. Here is another close-up:
Here you can see the snow crests I created. I tore white card stock, and were it was torn, I used liquid appliqué heated with my heat gun. I then used glue over it to add the sparkly MS glitter. The sentiment was computer generated, cut out and mounted onto a label created with Nesties labels. I then fed the snowflake ribbon through it and attached it to the card. The snowman is actually popped up on two dimensional foam squares on top of each other so that it really sticks out as if he is flying through the air. Here is a frontal view:
So, there is your first image of the blog hop. Your next stop is SIRPA. Just click on her name and it will take you to her blog. If you get lost, go to the main blog HERE to check the order. Here are the rules for the blog hop to be entered into the drawing:
1. Leave a comment on all blogs in the hop including mine.
2. 3 of our blogs will be chosen randomly, and everyone who commented on those 3 randomly chosen blogs will be entered into the drawing.
The prize: The winner will get to choose 4 main images AND 4 accessory/sentiment stamps of their choice!
I wish all of my readers the best of luck in the drawing. And I certainly appreciate your support of my participation as a guest designer for High Hopes. Obviously, this post supersedes my normal Wednesday Evening Post for this week.
