HIGH HOPES HULLABALLO....... Day 1

Hello everyone;
I am so excited to be part of Day 1 of the of the High Hopes Hullaballo.....sneak peeks of a brand new release. This adorable Cup Cake Ant is just one of the fabulous new images created by the super talented Crissy, #1 Artist for High Hopes Rubber stamps. Now if you love this one as much as I do, just wait until you see the rest.....they are just amazing!!



I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. The chocolate icing is colored first and then I added brown liquid applique and heated it to puff it up. I added some glossy accents to the sprinkles on the icing. I cut the ovals with my nesties and embossed the yellow cardstock with a CB folder. I braided the ribbon...I was hoping it would look like icing border, not too sure if I achieved that...lol!!
The fab sprinkles and icing papers are from Darcie's. Dropped on a few dew drops and some stickles and there you have my first ever High Hopes new release sneak peek.

The other Diva's have some awesome cards to share with you too, so sneak on over and take a peek.....
