Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Challenge-Post 3

Well, this is it. The final post for the Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Challenge. I used my Bathtub Sophie (now available at to create a gift bag and bath salt jar. I found a great recipe to make your own bath salts and have all the ingredients except the essential oils. I can't seem to find them anywhere around here. Anyone know where I can get them online?

Here is a closer look at the jar. I used my Nestabilities to cut the circle for the lid and then added some Big Pinks flowers by CTMH. They are the perfect size for the top of the lid. Once again Sophie is sitting in her pink bathtub (lucky gal!) and the bubbles are highlighted with Glimmerz Blingz. The ribbon is my favorite ribbon ever. I got it from my mome when she was cleaning out her craft room. It is the most delicious pink with threads of gold on the edges. Luckily she had a huge roll of it and she gave it to me in two sizes. Aren't moms great!

Here is another close-up of the lid. I used some of my Martha Stewart punches for the leaves, as well as a rhinestone brad for the center of the flower.

Thanks for stopping by. Check back next week for the results of the challenge. Thankfully I will be away at the beach all week so I won't have time to stress over it!

Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Challenge-Post 2

Wow! I can't believe a week has passed already. Where has the summer gone? It is time again for the Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Challenge post. This is the card I made using the unreleased Bathtub Sophie. I have had the paper for quite a while. It reminds me of the wallpaper that would be in an old bathroom. You can see the reverse side at the corner. It is this really pretty toile paper. I wove the organdy ribbon down the sides and the effect is really different. Sophie is sitting in every girlie girl's dream, a pink bathtub. I added some pink Glimmerz to the bubbles, too.

Next week is the final post of the guest designer challenge. Check back to see another project made with Bathtub Sophie. Have a great week!

Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Challenge-Post 1

Today is the day that I get to post my first entry into the Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Challenge. The stamp that was chosen for these challenges is the yet to be released Bath Sophie. Isn't she cute?! I went with a pretty simple design for my first card. I used Heavenly Blue and White card stock (run through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Folder) for the base. The card is wrapped with Heavenly Blue Sassy Strands and embellished with clear buttons tied with Heavenly Blue Waxy Flax. It may be hard to see in this picture, but Sophie's bubble bath is painted with pink Glimmerz Blingz.

Check out the Hanna Stamps Forum on Splitcoast Stampers for all of the entries in the Guest Designer Challenge. The girls have pulled out all the stops on this one!

Hanna Stamps August release party is this Monday, August 3 at 9:00pm in the Hanna Stamps Forum on SCS. Stop by for all the fun and to see this month's new releases.
