Oh so chic...**Hanna Sneak Peek**

Happy Thursday!! So are you having fun with all these releases this week!? I hope you've enjoyed all the peeks I've been sharing this week - I had a blast making them all!! I've got a couple to share with you today - this first one is of the new "In Vogue" set by Hanna Stamps - omgosh - she is tres chic!!! I knew I had to find some stylin' paper to go with her - so I chose a couple of patterns from the My Mind's Eye out and about stack - the colors in it are perfect for her! This card is for today's Ways to Use it challenge over on SCS - you can view today's challenge here. Today's challenge is ways to layer embellies - so I layered up my flowers for this card. I love layering flowers - I think it really jazzes them up and it's also a good way to get thru all those lovely bottles of flowers we have lying around so we can buy more, right!? HA HA!! Anywho - I love mixing up my flowers too - so I chose a couple of felt flowers from American Crafts and layered them with a Prima hydrangea. I added a Hero Arts green gemstone for their centers. To create the scene on my card - I first stamped Hanna - masked her - then stamped the storefront window behind her - I cut the scene down using one of my circle nesties to make it look like she's walking away from the store - you think she bought one of those adorable dresses in the window?? LOL!! The sentiment on this card is from the previously released "Things Hanna Would Say" set.

I've got one more to share with you for now - check out this sweet Riley!! He's called good luck Riley - he's my 7 year old DS's new favorite Riley - he's been asking when I am gonna make a card for him with it - so here it is finally! ;) My son just got a speaking part in the elementary school's spring musical in March (he is SO excited about it!!) - so I am gonna tuck this card away to give to him that night. I stamped Riley - colored him in with Copics and cut him out with my circle nesties. To make the four leaf clover - I cut 4 hearts with my nesties and then just arranged them to make a clover! The sentiment was done with Doodlebug Simply Sweet rub-on letters and the gold shiny cardstock is from the DCWV Metallic Stack. Thanks so much for stopping by - all of these fabulous new sets along with both new Rileys will be releaesed tonight after the Hanna Stamps Release Party over on SCS - it's in the Hanna forum from 9-11 PM - it's always SO much fun - challenges, chatting, prizes - hope to see you there!!!!!
