I am so excited because I get to share some sneak peeks of the new High Hopes release! (New stamps will be available for sale Saturday night or Sunday morning.) Oh my goodness, there are so many adorable new stamps! Just wait until you see them all! One of the themes for this release is Christmas in July. I had to ink up this adorable bear as one of my first images. Isn't he so cute!?!
I chose some Be Merry patterned papers from My Mind's Eye along with some hibiscus burst and dark chocolate cardstock. I used a dotted wave border punch across the bottom. (Bev has these available in the store.)
I stamped my skiing bear on white cardstock and colored him with copic markers that coordinate with my patterned paper. Then, I masked the image and sprayed the sky using a copic marker and my air compressor. Then, I added some dimensional glaze to the bear's nose and ski goggles and some polar white flower soft to the bottom of my image. Love that stuff!
Not all of the design team ladies have received their stamps yet, but I know there are at least a few of us doing sneak peeks. (All the design team ladies are listed on the left of my blog.) Hop around to catch some more sneak peeks. Crissy also has an amazing blog candy going on along with some sneak peeks at the new release. (Seven chances to win!!!)
Have a good one!
