Sneak Peek: Day Two

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

As soon as Kristi showed us this set I couldn't beg for it fast enough!! It's called 'In Vogue' and I love this cartoony look that this Hanna's has. Although, I will say that I think she needs to lay off the plastic surgery a wee bit! Those lips are making Angelina Jolie jealous! Haha

So I have two cards to show you today. You lucky ducks! :D

This first one showcases one of the main images (there are two) from the 'In Vogue' set. In all, this set has 5 stamps in it.

Eight year old Madelynn provided the sketch for this card. Madelynn has her own design team turn her sketches into gorgeous cards. If you'd like to play along this week, just pop on over to Madelynn's blog (yes, this 8 year old has her own blog) for the sketch and all the deets and remember to use the keyword MTTSC8 when you upload your cards to SCS or PCP so the team can leave some love. Head over to the other Twinkies blogs to see some more creations using Madelynn's sketch. (Psst! The list is on the left and you should visit Jessica's (Madelynn's mum) blog because I she has BLOG CANDY this week!)

I don't own a cuttle bug or nesties (did your jaw drop?) so I replaced the oval piece for a rectangular one. Hanna is stamped on watercolor paper and colored up with SU inks and my aquapainter. Then I cut her out and popped her on some dimensionals. The sentiment is one I found at Michaels and is by Hampton Arts. The patterned paper is something else I picked up at Michaels last week. And can you believe that the name of this paper is 'Fashion District'?! Seriously! I can't tell you how many times that has happened to me! I pick out paper for a stamp, make the card and when I add the supply deets to my blog post, I realize that the name of the paper matches the stamp set perfectly! It's SO weird!

My second card showcases three stamps from the set. The dress form stamp is part of the other main image in the set. I just stamped out a portion of it for this card.

For the life of me I could not come up with a sentiment for this card! So I just chickened out again. :D Don't you love those shoes and that bag stuffed full of money?! Obviously this is a BEFORE shot of the bag: before the shopping began! The patterned paper is again from the 8x8 'Fashion District' pad of paper by Me & My Big Ideas. I love the colors on this card!

Ok, so that's it from me today. I'll have another Riley for you tomorrow. If you want see more sneak peeks of the Hanna sets, run over to the blogs of the rest of the Hanna design team and our guest designer for this month - Jacqui Lines. You won't be disappointed! They're whipping up some FABULOUS cards this week!

I love how you did the ribbon on the first card and how cool is that about the name of the PP! Great watercoloring on both cards. I really love the second one though. I love how the images are set apart and aligned along the right, I love the placement of the ribbon and I love the PP. No sentiment necessary! :)

Clare said...
