Sneak Peek: Day Three

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

I am such a space cadet sometimes!

I went to bed early last night to catch up on some sleep. I was content knowing that today's blog post was all set to go. This morning I awoke to find out that all that had posted were my cards and nothing else! I hadn't written anything! Apparently I can convince myself of anything when I'm half asleep! LOL

Today's sneak peeks are showcasing a new set called 'Hay Hanna'! When I first laid eyes on this set, I wasn't sure what I could come up with as far as greeting cards were concerned, but the more I doodled, the more ideas came to me.

And that's how "Hay There Chickie" was born! LOL There are a total of 16 stamps in this set and I've used 6 of them on this card! I can't wait for you to see all the animals in this set!!

I stamped out the feed bucket first onto watercolor paper. Then I masked it off with a post it note, then stamped out the hay bale, then Hanna and then the chicks last. The sky/background and ground were sponged on with Soft Sky and Distress Inks. The button was from a package I found at Walmart. The paper is from Crate paper - LOVE their stuff!

I have had this sentiment just sitting in my collection waiting for the right card to use it on....and then when I saw the cow in this new set, I had a bit of a 'Hallelujah' moment!! This very rarely happens, but I love it when it does! The layout is from SCS's Sketch Challenge (SC209) last week.

I stamped out Daisy the cow on watercolor paper first, then stamped her out again on Georgia Pacific cardstock for the top later. Then I sponged the background. Then I cut Daisy out from the GP paper and popped her on dimensionals. The sentiment is clear embossed to add a little bit extra punch to the card. Last but not least, I added some googlie eyes! Daisy was BEGGING for them! LOL This could be a great 'get well' card don't you think? It'd make me laugh if I got it!
Please check out the wonderful creations made by the other Hanna Girls on their blogs! They are churning out some stunning cards this week! :D (The list is on the left).

I have two more cards for you tomorrow and then it's release party time!! :D Waahooooo!

Awesome cards. You have that masking technique down to a science. I have a hard time with it. I need private lessons. Great coloring and sentiments!

Both of these are just darling!! I love the charming farm scene and colors you used on the first one, and the googly eyes on the cow are fantastic.

Sandra, wonderfula creations as usual. You really inspire me and, darn it, such a temptress...I think I'm going to be buying some new Hannas!

As always, your cards are not only paper funtastic, but paper perfection! I love both of them...especially the googly-eyed cow:o)
