Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans
It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Christmas. YAY!!! This week, I used Woodland Santa – R098 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and a sentiment from our new release called O Christmas Tree – GLL002 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).
To create the scene, I cut out various sizes of trees and then used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to colour them. I also cut out various layers of snow from Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper. Other pieces from the same paper, I just tore for a variation in the snow. I ran all of the little trees and snow through the Xyron Creative Station which made it much easier to put the scene together. Lastly, I popped up the image and sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
