October Sale at High Hopes Rubber Stamps

October Sale at High Hopes Rubber Stamps!

As many of you remember High Hopes  used to have a Special of the month stamp set that we offered through our website a year or two back.  That sale was very popular, and many of our customers have written and asked that they bring it back.  Who doesn’t love a sale?  So in the spirit of stretching our stamping dollar, they will be posting new sale starting at the first of every month, to run a week.
High Hopes Stamps is located in South Western Ontario, surrounded by farm land.  This time of year we love that many of our local farmers put up roadside stands selling the best of their crops.  Every year we  stock up on fresh peaches and cream corn to freeze, Zucchini to make into loaves of bread to freeze, and Blueberries, Apples and Peaches to can.  Canning the fruits, and making and canning homemade salsa is a fall tradition that our family has had for years.
We also love to go to the Fairs to see what other folks are making, and baking!
Being in that “Farm Fresh” mood, we thought we would bring back some of our old favorite farm images for this month’s 20% off sale!

I created the pink background (tutorial coming soon!) with Tombow markers.  I stamped the G-1038 Round Posy Lg. ~ 20% OFF!, E-1039 Round Posy Med, D-1040 Round Posy Sm. flowers onto watercolored paper and cut out.  I used AA-949 Tiny Happy Day for my phrase. I added Lilac Pearl Pen “pearls” to the flower center and side of card.
