Sneak Peek: Aaah!

Friday, February 27, 2009

A happy Friday to you all! As promised, starting today and all through the weekend, I will be showing you sneak peeks from the new sets Hanna Stamps will be releasing this coming Monday night, March 2nd after the release party.

I'm soooo loving this Sophie Stamp!! I squealed just a little bit when Kristi posted for the DT girls to see! I could SO use a bit of pampering like this right about now, but I'm sure we all could, right?

You may have caught a sneak peek of Spa Riley earlier in the week if you frequent Anna Wight's blog like I do. Loved that purple hair wrap!

What's that you say? I thought you said you didn't own any nesties? Did I breakdown and get some? No. Then how in the heck did ya do that scalloped edge circle girlfriend?!? With a Fiskars circle cutter and a pair of decorative scissors, that's how! Probably would have been a thousand times easier with a cuttlebug and nesties though, but all know the rest of the story. (I'm working on DH to buy me one so that I don't get blamed for the purchasing frenzy of nesties that will follow!)

I got out my sewing machine again and tried the zigzag stitching this time....I bombed bigtime! I won't point out the flaws, but if you click to get a larger image, you'll see them! Sophie was colored using the Riley Copic set from Hanna Stamps, and I sponged the edges of the cardstock with Antique Linen. Added some ribbon and Kaiser pearls for a feminine look.

Speaking of feminine, today's Hanna Stamps challenge (HSC58) is to make a feminine card using ribbon and it's being hosted this week by the uber talented and hilariously funny Diana Gibbs.
I hope you all had a great week and thank you for stopping by today. If you wanna see another sneak peek - stop by tomorrow!

You did that with scissors? seriously?????? you are kidding, right??????? wow. That is all I can say!! You are a saint! I would avoid (and used it) circles all the time! I got my CB with a joann coupon, and buy my nesties from Cut@home using their monthly 40% off coupon! Anyway.. Riley rocks!

Great job - love your coloring and I can't believe you did that with scissors! I can't use a sewing machine to save my life, so I'm totally impressed with sewing, and don't see any flaws with yours!

I loved this blog. How fun! Thank you for sharing. The 80's were great, weren't they? Two of my three children were born in the late 1980's. (grin)

I LOVE your blog. You are such a creative person.
