New Artist at High Hopes!!!

High Hopes stamps has a new artist joining them to design stamps. Her name is Laurie Furnell and her style is a mix of cute, quirky, and country.

A couple of weeks ago I received a call from Tina, the owner of High Hopes Stamps. She said that she loved my High Hopes cards and told me that they were having a new release in September featuring a brand new artist and asked me if I would be interested in some of the new images to play with.

Really? She had to ask??? Well of course I said yes..though...I wasn't quite prepared for the huge package of stamps she sent me! I immediately e mailed her and asked what she needed me to do as far as making samples for her. She told me nothing was expected...just have fun with the stamps! WOW!! What a generous lady!

Didn't have to tell me twice!!! I had a lot of fun with the stamps! Here are just a few of the cards that I made. I hope you enjoy them!
The new release has images and sentiments that will take you through the rest of the year!
First some adorable bears/school images.
I used the Sunday Sketch & Stamp sketch for this one. The senitment is Amyr's Autumn Sentiments.
This one is made with two seperate stamps...I just had to stack them! This sentiment is from Amyr's Congrats Sentiments.
There are a ton of terrific Halloween images in this release.

And...a bunch of really cute snowmen too! I used this weeks CPS Sketch for this one! And..there is puffy paint on the sweater so it fulfills the Little Red Wagon challenge to use paint too!

My final project is for the current High Hopes blog challenge to make anything but a card.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the new High Hopes stamps. I usually buy mine from Lacey's store so go check them all out there! Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my goodness!! These are amazing!! I just LOVE how you stacked the two mice stamps!! What a great idea! Tina actually directed me to your site. Thank you sooo much for pointing HH lovers to my store! That's very sweet of you. It's also great to get to see my customer's blogs! I package orders daily and I always think "I wonder what this person has in mind for these stamps!!" Do you mind if I add a link to your blog on the customer blog list? I just happened to be in Michaels yesterday and picked up one of the Just Cards magazines and thought "I wonder if that is my customer" and it is!! How exciting!
Thanks for sharing all of your awesome creations with the new images!!
