High Hopes Challenge #27!!


So who's stressed?? Okay, better question...who isn't stressed?? haha!! This week for the challenge on the High Hopes blog, I thought I'd try to de-stress you all by getting you to dis-tress your cards!!! Think it'll work?? Let's give it a go!

Now you can distress your design any way you like, whether it's using your inks to distress your images or your scissors or tools to rough up the edges of your cards....just take out all your stress on your papers!!! haha!!

For my card, I used the shaggy dog Odie! Now you can get these fabulous stamps at the High Hopes Website or some other stores carry them as well, including The Town Scrapper and Scrappin' Great Deals!! I stamped the image on Wausau paper with Memento ink and coloured him in using my Copic markers, of course!

The card base is Kraft cardstock and the dp is Parisian Breeze by Stampin' Up. I used Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze to accent, pop dotted both layers and distressed the edges of the papers with Walnut Stain ink. I added a button with some brown linen thread, some kraft ribbon tags and stamped the sentiment right on the dp!




Whew!! I feel more relaxed already....don't you??? No?? Well, then you'd better get stampin'!!! haha!! Not only will it help you chill out, but you could win some free stamps....the ones on this card!!!

Now hop on over to the HHBlog and check out all the other amazing creations to inspire you! Not only that, but the new April release of HH Stamps are up on the website for you to seeeeeeeeeeee!!! And here's a secret....The Town Scrapper has them in stock already!!! Shhhhh!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!
