High Hopes Challenge #18

Hello everyone,
I hope you all had a great weekend. Some of us had a long weekend, which I'm sure you will all agree, was badly needed!! My weekend was extremely busy as the High Hopes new release order was delivered on Saturday afternoon, (to the Rubber Room)and Cathy and I have been getting it ready and on the shelves for Tuesday morning. Crissy (#1artist4highhopes) has outdone herself this time!! These new images are just fabulous!! I couldn't wait to get my hot little hands on them and they were certainly worth the wait. So sorry for neglecting all of my blogging friends this weekend but I will be blog stalking later tonight to see all your wonderful creations.


HHC #18
I had made this set of mini milk cartons and holder up last week in anticipation of getting the new stamps. I wanted to use one of the three pane stamps we were getting. It was a toss up between the three pane farm friends or the three pane Easter. The High Hopes Challenge this week is Easter, soooo the Easter pane it is... Talk about being prepared, EH!

 


The pattern for this milk carton holder was a gift from my friend, Diane. The bottom holder sections are made separately and glued together. The handle is prepared and added next. When I made up the milk cartons I stamped different images with Perfect medium. I used a carrot, double flower, large flower and a feather.

 


I embossed the images in black and painted them with Tombows. I painted the lamb with icicle H2o's.I used glossy accents on the noses and of course I added some stickles. I used my scallop nesties for the circles behind the images. Each image was cut out and glued to the borders and I used foam tape behind the borders that attached them to the holder.

This last picture shows how to fill them with candy. I did it different than the pattern. I added a tab to the bottom and used sticky velcro pieces to hold the bottoms together. It worked very well considering the weight of the chocolate. Well there you have it....quite quick and easy to make the holder and milk cartons. The most time involved was painting all the images.
I was quite pleased with the way it turned out. I hope you like it.

Thanks so much for stopping by
