Ribbon Carousel and High Hopes Blog Hop

The Ribbon Carousel Crewmates are teaming up with the High Hopes Rubber Stamps designers to bring you a blog hop!


The good folks at High Hopes Rubber Stamps sent me this adorable image called Dapper Dan Snowman!  I love him!   I have to say....these stamps ink up beautifully!   I colored him with copics and paper pieced his vest with some PP from the My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas 6x6 paper pad.  I used a stamp from the Craft's Meow's Retro Foundations stamp set to create the background on the kraft panel.  I stamped the design in VersaMark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I used a white gel pen to color in the centers of the circles.  I tore a piece CS to create the snow. I popped the image up with foam squares and added some red satin center band ribbon


Now, lets talk prizes!   

Hop along with us today and leave some blog love for our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates and the High Hopes Stamps designers to be eligible to win one of the 2 prizes up for grabs!  We'll select 2 random commenters from 2 randomly selected designer blog, so be sure to spread the love around!

The High Hopes prize is a 25 giftcertificate, and the Ribbon Carousel prize will be a wonderful kit of ribbon worth at least $25! 

Ready to Hop?!
