Everyday Heros and a Sneak Peek!

Thursday, July 30, 2009

Good Morning All! I am so excited so show you some new stamps from Hanna Stamps!

Meet Fireman Riley!

Isn't he a sweetie?! He's everyone's hero. And he's just drawn to perfection don't you think? He is being released by Hanna Stamps as soon as Mrs Kristi gets back from CHA. Now, can you spot the other stamp Mrs Kristi has been keeping under wraps until now?!

Yep! It's the brick background!! And guess what? It's not the only background stamp being released. Nope, there's one other background that up until now, we've all been creating by hand. Can you guess what it is? I've give you a hint: You'll be floored when you see it. YES! It's a floorboards background!!! And the best part? They both come in RED RUBBAH! :D

I've been dying to tell you guys for ages now and last Friday they finally arrived on my doorstep. These background stamps measure a little bit shy of 3" x 4". Not sure what they will be priced at yet, but Mrs Kristi has promised that they'll be in the store once she gets back into town. :) How excited are you all now?! hehe

Ok, some deets for you all: Fireman Riley and the brick background was colored with reinkers and an aquapainter on Georgia Pacific cardstock. The sketch is from this week's Sketch For You To Try by Jen Del Muro of I {Heart} To Stamp fame. I sponged the edges of the Basic Grey patterned paper to bring out the rich and hot colors of it. The sentiment was created with a Studio G Mini Alphabet set I picked up earlier in the year.

Since my DT stamps did arrive this month, I will have sneak peeks of the August release sets to show you starting tomorrow and running over the weekend! So stop back here tomorrow if you want to see what Rileys will be released! :)
Ciao Bella's!
