Hanna Card

Hi Hanna!

I've really liked Hannah Stamps for quite a while now but I haven't had much time to play with them. I did make this card for my Fast & Fabulous cards class and I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I even paper pieced her dress!

Card Recipe:
1 piece card stock for card base, & scrap for matting Hanna
1 piece Cosmo Cricket Patterned Paper
1 piece Basic Grey paper
Hanna Stamps
Hi stamp - Hampton $$ stamps
Imaginisce Brad
Tombow Watercolour markers
Stazon Black Ink & Stampin Up Green Galore

1. Cut cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and score in the middle at 4 1/2 to make a card.
2. Cut patterned paper to 4 x 5 1/2 and adhere to card front
3. Cut second piece of patterned paper to fit under Hanna
4. Stamp Hanna using Stazon black ink twice. Once on white cardstock and once on patterned
paper. Cut out dress from patterned paper and set aside.
5. Colour in Hanna image stamped on white, cut to size and mat with complitmentary card
6. Adhere patterned dress pieces to stamped image (I recommend using a glue pen).
7. Adhere completed Hanna in place as desired.
8. Stamp "Hi" sentiment onto white cardstock using Stampin Up Green Galore. Cut out = yes,
9. Poke brad though the dot part of the "i" split back and then adhere in place.

Amazingly I didn't use any stickles or ribbon on this card. I had intended to sew on it, but my Singer started sewing upside down! Never mind.. it's a long story.

Ribbon Flowers!

I'm off to do some work on my Fast & Fabulous Card class for this Friday, but wanted to post before the whole week got away from me. The class by the way still has a few spots if you want to join us. Join us on Friday Jan 16th from 7:30-9:30 at Bizzy B's Stamp & Scrap in Toronto. 416-203-0433 We're making 6 cards and 2 tags in 2 hours!!

Okay, now check out this cool ribbon flower I made... the original design came from here.
I didn't change much except I prefer to use glue to all those staples, and the cropodile is fantastic at going through all those layers... really I just wanted to try out this "make a slide thingy" on the blog!

You can make them yourself, in any colour and they go together quite quickly too. I uploaded some photo's and made a mini tutorial... it's my first time trying this! I hope you like it.
