You Quack Me Up!!!


I'm totally stoked to share some exciting High Hopes news with you!!! Today they are releasing some adorable new stamps and I get to show them to you!!! How fun is that???

It was really fun playing with this wacky Duck, called Wingin' It! He's such a wild and crazy bird!! I stamped him on shimmery white cardstock with my Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and used my Stampin' Up markers in Old Olive for the grass, Pumpkin Pie for his webbed feet, Summer Sun for his beak and Barely Banana for his feathery body. I went over the edges of his body a second time to shade it a little bit and then I used Sahara Sand around the right side of his body for some shadow. Then I doodled the border using my Basic Black journaler. The patterned paper is from We R Memory Keepers and is double-sided, so the yellow that I matted him on is the flip side of the patterned paper. I used Pumpkin Pie for the base and a layer of Old Olive. I used my fancy dancy new Crop-a-dile to attached all the Ruby Red eyelets and then used some linen thread for a little added interest. I stamped the sentiment, You Quack Me Up on some shimmery white and used both my tag punches to make the tag! Then, of course, I pop dotted my Duckie!!

High Hopes Stamps are absolutely the cutest stamps out there!! They are made of deeply etched red rubber and are wonderful to work with! You can order them mounted on wood or unmounted....I have some of each. This time I got rubber only and mounted them myself on EZmount and they are wonderful (plus it's cheaper on shipping)!



Here is the whole sheet of new designs which are being added to the website later on today and then you can place your order to be the first to play with them (after me, of course, heehee)!! And I will be playing with them this week so I'll be sharing more cards featuring these adorable stamps right here at Kraftin' Kimmie's Korner, for you to check out!!

NOW for some even MORE exciting news!!! Tina, the fabulous owner of High Hopes Rubber Stamps, has oh-so generously donated some of these cutie-patootie stamps and YOU can win them!!! Yep, yep!! In order to be eligible to win, you must do two things!! First you must create a card using sketch from the above 'Quacky' card as inspiration!! Just comment in this post and add a link or email it to me. Secondly, just pop on over to High Hopes, have a look at their hundreds of sweet little stamps and let me know which ones are your favourites. That's all there is to it!! Be sure to complete both tasks in the same comment (it just makes it easier for me to keep track) and I will choose TWO lucky winners to receive some new High Hopes Rubber Stamps on Saturday, July 14th!!

I am getting started on this, I love the layout and the way you used the eyelets. I hope I win hehe. I really like the beach stamps, I have been there before and have a long list. I even sent you a rak with bee images and asked for some of those hehe. But I haven't sent it yet.

OMGoodness I love those ducks, how cute are they, I have made a card and its on my blog Kim, have had a quick look at the site, but have to confess to finding it a bit awkward to navigate so I am going to say that the sheet of stamps you have on this post are prob my favourites as I could think of loads of uses for those gorgeous ducks, and the says are just sooo funny
