Almost Forgot This Card

I finally got a chance to participate in the Bellarific Friday challenge this week. It was a sketch challenge and I decided to break in my new Just My Type stamp from Stamping Bella. I just love this stamp. It is so vintage and cute!

OK. This is the last post for today, I promise.

Hanna Stamps July New Set Challenge

This image is from the Cyber Hanna set released by Hanna Stamps last month. It was the set picked for the new set challenge. The challenge required a project with pink, gray, and black. This paper by SEI was as close as I had to those colors. This planner has been sitting on my desk for the last nine months. Since it matched the color theme, I decided to decorate it. It is hard to see in the picture, but there is a little rhinestone frame around the 2009 at the bottom. I just love this set. I created the background behind the image to look like my new stamp room. The walls are pink and the floors are concrete (gray).

Thanks for visiting. I will be back on Saturday with my first post for the Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Challenges. You are just going to love this new stamp!

Hanna Stamps Weekly Challenges

I have sadly neglected doing this month's weekly challenges in the Hanna Stamps forum, but I am trying to get caught up. I managed to get all three done that I was missing just in time for the new one to be posted tomorrow. Here they are in random order.

The first card is from Challenge 77. It was a sketch challenge. I used BBQ Riley for this one since I volunteered to make 8 of them as invitations to our family BBQ on Labor Day. My mom-in-law wanted this stamp for the invitations and I have to agree that he is just perfect.

This one is Challenge 79. The theme was to make a circle card. I just loved this stamp sent (Pool Party) when it came out. It has lots of circle images that worked perfectly with these shape card.
The little splashes are sticker from my pile of stickers.

The last is a project instead of a card. Challenge 78 was to make a 3D item. I bought my new 2010 calendar last week and decided to alter it. I used the new Cyber Riley. He is just so cute sitting there on his laptop. The beautiful background paper is by Basic Grey.

Thanks for stopping by. I will have more to post soon.

2 Hanna Stamps Challenges

I am still playing catch up on my Hanna Stamps challenges, but these are the last two. The first card is from challenge 72. It was a pink/burgundy challenge with a twist of polka dots or circles. I used Wedding Riley on a background of Basic Grey paper. The design of this card is from the Viva La Verve challenge on the Verve forum of SCS. I used Glimmerz Blingz in Pixie Dust on the dress and veil, as well as Stardust Stickles on the crown of her veil.

The second card is for Hanna Stamps challenge 76. The theme of this challenge was Christmas in July. I used Tree Riley for this card on a background of K&Co. paper. This card also uses the Mojo 93 sketch from the Mojo Monday Blog.

Well I am off to put my boys to bed. Have a safe and happy 4th of July tomorrow!
