Hanna Turns 1 - plus BLOG CANDY!!!!

YIPPEE!!!! What an exciting week - today kicks off a week-long celebration of the 1st Anniversary of Hanna Stamps - WOO HOO!!!! We've got lots of fun stuff planned for this week - sneak peeks, challenges, contests, prizes and every member of the Design Team is offering up some uber-sweet BLOG CANDY!!!!! So let me first start out by sending a BIG congratulations to Kristi for a wonderful year of Hanna Stamps!! Now for the BLOG CANDY...all you have to do for a chance to win a NEW NEVER BEFORE SEEN Riley image is - starting today - visit the blogs of our talented design team members to view sneak peeks of the new releases and leave a comment - that's all - pretty easy, huh?? There is a link to all of the design team members on the sidebar of my blog or you can view a list here - there will be one new Riley stamp given out per blog. Winners will be chosen at random and announced at the Hanna Stamps release party over on SCS this Thursday, October 2nd at 9:00 PM EST - so be sure to visit the design team blogs for sneak peeks and a chance to win this week!! And speaking of sneak peeks - I have a couple for you today...

The sneak peeks I have for you today were done using the new "Ski Bunny" set which will be releasing this Friday, October 3rd. Isn't she a beauty?? I just LOVE this image!!! The pink one at the top of this post was done using the main image in the set - Hanna was colored in with Copics and cut out with long rectangle Nesties. The snowflakes are brads with a rhinestone sticker in the center of each one. The pink panel behind Hanna was embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. The sentiment is by Stampendous.

The second sneak peek I have for you is a little cocoa holder I made using the Ski Bunny set. The scarf and the mug are both from this set and were colored in with Copics. The sentiment is by Stampendous. For this project - I just folded a piece of light blue cardstock around a pak of instant hot chocolate mix and then layered a piece of embossed white cardstock over that blue cardstock - I cut off an inch of the width before I put it over the blue to give a layered effect. I tied a bag of marshmallows onto the envelope with organdy ribbon and embellished with the stamped images.

Thanks so much for stopping by - I'll have more sneak peeks for you tomorrow - don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a new Riley and be sure to visit the other design team blogs for a chance to win as well!!
