RELEASE DAY and BLOG HOP!!!!!!








It's finally here....HIGH HOPES RELEASE DAY and BLOG HOP!!!!!

I know you are all excited about Dustin's first release with High Hopes......so let's get going with the Hop.

If you have landed here from Nikki's blog you are going in the right direction......if you would like to start at the beginning you need to back to the High Hopes Blog.

There are 4 amazing prizes to be won.....1 Full New Release and 3 separate stamp packages.

To be eligble to win any of these packages you must leave a comment on each Diva's blog and the High Hopes Blog.
4 of the Diva's will hosting a prize, but we don't know which Diva's they are yet....so be sure to comment on all the Diva's blogs.


I couldn't resist doing a Stair Step Card....as these amazing little characters are just perfect for it.
The images I have used are " Chuck".... "Space Scape"...."Dragons Destiny".... and "Space like Home sentiment".



I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I stamped 3 of the Space Scape images..... one for the background and 1 for each step. I cut out all the images and layered them with foam tape. I added glossy accents to the dragons helmet and the alien's eyes. I stamped and embossed a maple leaf with red ink and clear embossing powder to the flag.
I also added some stickles here and there.



















Here is a side view to show you the dimension of the steps.

Now to continue "Blog Hopping"...... your next stop is Melanie.

The new release stamps are on sale "NOW"....and can be purchased at "The Rubber Room and Online Store".

Have fun with the Blog Hop.....Thanks so much for stopping by
