Hanna Stamps Challenge

Kristi at Hanna Stamps has started a 1:1 swap challenge. A new challenge comes along once every two weeks. She posts the challenge then you make something and send it to your partner. The first challenge was a theme - Summer. So of course I pulled out my "Fun in the Sun" Hanna. I decided to do a 3-D altered item rather than a card so I pulled out a wooden from I picked up at Michael's and decorated it. First I painted it white with acrylic paint. The glittery chipboard letter pieces I had in my stash, but thought would work wonderfully for this project. I stamped and colored Hanna with Copics, then added Pink Stickles to her bathing suit. Here is her close up:
On the bottom I added a double flower and some bling.

Did you see the new Hanna's that were released this past week? There was a Cafe Hanna, Anthony and Bookworm Hanna. The Hanna release parties at Splitcoast are always a blast. I was so psyched I won a set also! I was just chatting away and they had a random giveaway. Kristi chatted something asking a question - What is your favorite drink? I immediately thought Oh good god COFFEE and chatted it. Then I was about to log off because I was so tired and right before I do I saw that I won something. I won for being the first one to answer Kristi's question! WOO HOO! SO for that I am getting Cafe Hanna!


That's it for now. Off I go to play with some goodies I picked up this weekend. Did you see that new roller wheel that will allow you to put your clear stamps on it and use it like a wheel? It's by Memory Essentials. I had seen it in a magazine I think Memory Makers and thought now that's cool I NEED one. I saw it at a stamp show I went to this weekend, so I will let you know how it works. I also picked up some foiling and fiber goodies as well as lots of embossing powders and some stamps of course. I've been getting back into using my embossing powders especially with all the great bold images out there. SO I ask you is heat embossing out? Because if it is I'm bringing it back! I just feel like you don't see it that much anymore, maybe that's why on vendor had powders 1/2 price! LOLOLOLOL!!!


Thanks for stopping by.
