Last of the sneak peeks!

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Last month’s release party was the first one I have experienced and even though my head was still spinning after I closed the laptop, it was so much fun! Lots of chatter, giveaways, games and such that it felt like Christmas! This month’s release party should be no different! I HIGHLY suggest you come and hang out with the Mrs Kristi, Ms Vicki and the DT girls on Thursday evening 9-11pm EST over at the Hanna Stamps forum!

This card uses the ‘Get Well Hanna’ set being released this Friday. I CASED this layout from the amazing Claudia AKA ClaudiafromGermany on SCS. Her work is truly amazing – if you get a chance check out her gallery! I started out by stamping Get Well Hanna with versamark ink onto watercolor paper, added black ep, heat set and colored her up with my SU inks. Then I cut her out using my Fiskars circle cutter (almost archaic now!) and layered her on some of the patterned paper and Bazzil cs.

Now I just got my corner punch so I’m still playing around with it, but I used it on the brown cs and slipped my patterned paper (which I sponged the edges of) under the slits. The strip of pp across the middle is from the other side of the pp and I just matted it and added eyelets for the ribbon. Popped the matted image on dimensionals and voila!

My last card I have to show you before tonight’s release party is another Riley! And this one I think is my favorite out of the two. Some of the DT girls took went with the notion that Riley was in fact Sophie (she-moose) but in my house, the only person who irons is my hubby! So to me, Laundry Riley is a man-moose! This one is for you sweetheart! :D

I discovered something while creating this card. Now before you read this, keep in mind that there is a reason my user name on SCS is ‘B-gin-R’! I usually watercolor on Canson watercolor paper, but really wanted a flat, clean look to this Riley image, so I used a little piece of SU Whisper White that I had left. I’ve been using Walmart’s Georgia Pacific cs since my WW ran out and I know when I do watercolor on it I have to work fast in order not to get those nasty bleed lines. Well, watercoloring on WW works better than on the GP paper!! You can work the space a bit more and the colors don’t get washed out! See, told you there was a reason I still feel like a beginner at this!! Ha! So needless to say, I’m going to be ordering some WW from my SU demo soon!
