High Hopes Blog Hop

Welcome to the High Hopes New Release Blog Hop. If you are following the blog hop, you should have just visited Alex's Blog. If this is your first stop, you can start the blog hop HERE at the High Hopes Blog.  

I made a small wreath to show off one of the new stamps. The wreath is 9 1/2 inches wide. To make the wreath I cut 6" by 1/2" Stripes of paper, curled them with the edge of some scissors, and attached them to a foam wreath with hot glue. I punched snowflakes using various Martha Stewart Punches and Snowflake Nestabilites dies (Snowflake 1,2 &3), covered them with Stars Dust Stickles, attached a round clear Rhinestone in the center and then attached them to the wreath with hot glue.



The sentiment is embossed in Gold to match the candle holder.
I made the falling snowflakes background using a big snowflake Background Stamp and silver embossing power. To protect the image from dust, I covered the entire image with clear cardstock.

Here are some close ups.

The sentiment is from a past High Hopes Release


All of the snow flakes are covered in Star Dust Stickles. There is a clear Rhinestone Brad in the center.


 The snowflakes are a mix punched out with various Martha Stewart Punches and Snowflake Nestabilities.

Your next and final stop is the wonderful Lacey. Thanks for visiting! I can't wait to read your comments. The stamps go on sale Today....Thursday!

The blog hop will run through Saturday September 24 night at midnight EST. However, the "Home for the Holidays" challenge still be open for 2 weeks.

Hugs!
Heidi
