High Hopes Sept "Project of the Month"

The stamp set High Hopes is offering for the Sept "Project of the Month" are Awesome!!!

I am a little late with this card as we have just come back from Holidays.....but I wanted to be sure to make a card from this Fun set!!

You still have time to purchase these stamps at a 25% discount.........These Fabulous stamps are offered right HERE and includes...... Max the Magnificient - Sammy Seal - You're a Class Act - Popcorn.

I used prismacolor pencils (oms) and H20's to color these images.

Sammy seal and the popcorn are popped up on foam dimensionals. Max's bow tie and the stars are cut out and glued on the main image.....(creating just a bit of dimension).

Stickles are used for all the glittering except the popcorn....where I used a stardust clear pen.

On our holidays I purchased a Fiskars treading water punch (used for the top curtain) and my new Quick Kutz corner die......which is what I used for the corners. I think these corners are so cute....and a perfect size.

Stamps - High Hopes

Ink - versafine black. barely banana, marigold morning, close to cocoa

Paper - GP white, dcwv, Michael's, treasures cs

Accessories - stickles, brads, ribbon, stitching, foam dimensionals, quick kutz corner die, treading water punch, Acrylic white paint for details

Thank you everyone for all your Wonderful comments while I was on holidays!! We had a Fabulous time!!.....I'm hoping to share some pictures in the near future. So far I am just trying to catch up with everything....my emails...ect. I have received many wonderful tags while I was gone...and will post them at a later date.

My daughter Trina from Trina's Timeless Treasures is on holidays and has come to visit me for a few days....Yay!!.. So we are going to have some fun stamping and coloring. Trina recently go copics for her birthday....and they are calling out my name for me to try them.........

Thanks for looking and Have a Great Day!!!!
