Sneak Peek Time for Hanna Stamps...

Happy Hanna Day! Today is day one of the January Sneak Peeks! I have some fun images using the new Garden Hanna set. There are some pretty sunflower stamps in this one & I love that!

My first card for today has a big gorgeous sunflower. They are some of my favorite flower images to use because I just love the colors of them. Notice the copper microbeads in the center of the sunflower ~ they are very easy to apply with some super sticky adhesive tape. Isn't the pattern paper PERFECT?!?! And guess what? I found it in my file of scraps ~ woohoo! It's an older pattern by Scenic Route & I thought it was perfect with these images. On the cocoa paper at the bottom of this card, I also dry embossed some leaves ~ but they didn't photograph very well. My husband gave me a cool light tent and photography lights for Christmas & I'm still learning how to use them.

My next card has a little bit of a surprise element on it ~ it's a flat panel card but it has a magnet closure on the little brown scallop card so just that little card on top opens. I like mixing it up a bit now and then!

Here's a shot of the inside ~ I used the smaller image of the sunflowers inside and included a sentiment to tie it all together. I love how this turned out.

I have so many projects to show you this week that my head is spinning! Lots more from Hanna Stamps and Lizzie Anne Sneak peeks will start tomorrow too. So stay tuned all week!

I'm a busy girl right now. You should see my To Do list ~ 2 new releases this week, CHA samples, projects for Stamp Club later this month, daily blogging, weekly design work, and I was asked to make invitations, programs, thank you notes and favors for a friend's wedding in March. Life is a bit crazy right now, but I'm not complaining ~ I HAVE THE BEST JOB EVER!!!!!! So if you don't see a lot of chit chat in my daily blog posts, don't be surprised!

As always ~ thanks so much for your support and comments!

Supplies Used: Stamps ~ Hanna Stamps (Garden Hanna); Cardstock ~ SU & Papertrey Ink; Pattern Paper ~ Scenic Route; Ink ~ Palette & Copics; Ribbon ~ Michaels; Buttons ~ SU; Nestabilities.
