Let's Bowl! *Hanna Sneak Peeks*

I promised you more sneak peeks today and here they are - check out Bowling Hanna!!!! OMG - she is DA BOMB!! I love love LOVE the retro feel of this set - so I wanted to make cards with a retro feel to them - when I think like 60's retro - I think funky shapes and bright, bold, striking (no pun intended - hee hee) colors. I think I almost used every image from the new bowling stamps on my 2 cards as well! For this first card - I stamped the main Hanna image from the set and colored her in with Copics - I added a dab of Stickles to the heart on her fab bowling bag. I used some of the extra stamps in the set to stamp the background on the orange panel - the bowling sign in the upper left hand corner is from the set as well - I added some Stickles to that as well after I colored it to make it look like it was all lit up!

Now this second card has kind of a funny story to it - you see - last January we had a bowling party for my oldest son's 6th birthday and I wanted to make the invitations myself - well - let me tell ya - I looked EVERYWHERE for cool bowling stamps and I couldn't find any!! So I did manage to get some invites together - but had I had this Hanna set last year - I would have went to town on the b-day party stationary and probably created an invitation that looked something like this second card here. ;) I stamped my background on again - and created a bowling "lane" in the middle of my card by putting some decorative score lines down it with my Scor-Pal. The main image in the circle is from this set as well - I colored it in with Copics and then cut out the bowling bowl and popped it up with pop dots to give it some dimension.
Thanks SO much for indulging me today - I know I've kinda thrown a lot at ya today ;) - I will tell you though that there is something SUPER exciting in the works for tomorrow - so be sure to swing back by! Don't forget about the Hanna Stamps Release party over on SCS on Thursday night either - it's from 9-11 PM EST (the new Hannas and Rileys will be released after the party) - it's guaranteed to be an absolute blast!!!!
