Prism Challenge

This is my Prism color challenge card for this week's release as described in yesterday's post. I used Prism papers which I have to say are gorgeous and a stampers dream just like the ads in the magazines say. I will be sending this card of to Jamie at Prism as a thank you for sending me and the rest of the Hanna Stamps Design Team samples of all the Prism papers.

I used Crab Apple Pink, Rose Dark and Vibrant Teal. The stamps set is one of the 4 new sets to be released on Friday. This set is called 'Garden Hanna' - I love her crocs! I hope this will be me this summer however in the Alberta heat it will be shorts and a tank top. The butterfly is a big large for this card but I really wanted to use my new Cuttlebug die/folders - This used the new butterflies, first you cut out the image with the die cut and then use a folder to emboss. There are 4 folders for this die cut. I got them from Sheila at Scrappin' Great Deals.

As always, there are some great cards to be found by the Hanna Stamps Design Team at SCS - Keyword: hsdt - View the gallery here.

Stamps: Garden Hanna (release May 2), Things Hanna would say - Hanna Stamps
Paper: PRISM crab apple pink, vibrant teal, rose dark, Staples 110#

Kitty in the Flowers

The challenge I hosted last night at the Hanna Stamps April Release Party was a color challengs and the card from yesterday was my creation for the challenge. The color challenge was to use plum (perfect plum and/or pale plum), always artichoke and basic grey. This color combo came when I was making this card. Tracy guessed that knowing me it had to do with Primas well I guess she could have been right as both cards have Primas on them but mind you all my cards have Primas or Bazzill flowers on them!

To see the details of the challenge look >> HERE <<

The challenge is open until 6 pm EST on Sunday, April, 6th. Your card needs to be uploaded into the SCS gallery using the keyword: HSCAPR2. If you click on that link, it will take you to see all the beautiful cards that have been made.

The two new sets by Hanna Stamps are up on the website: Tool Time and Passport Hanna.

Also, I don't think I mentioned that we have 2 new designers on the team Amanda Sewell and Niki Estes joined us on the last release in March. Click on their names to see their blogs. April's guest designer is Amber Porter. Make sure to check out thier great stuff - plus the Designe Team has about 679 Hanna Stamps cards in the HSDT gallery at SCS now (it grows by the minute!).

Today's card, was a colored image that was on my desk that I colored when I first got my copic markers and was just experimenting coloring various images. The colored images that made the cut are on my desk and slowly I am piecing them into cards.

I am off to stamp with the Calgals tonight (which if you read my blog you know that is Tracy, Nancy and Allison) - I reminded Allison earlier this week so she wouldn't miss the meeting at Nancy's batcave! I hope to make some new stuff as I have nothing left to show on my blog.

Paper: perfect plum, pale plum, always artichoke, basic grey, Staples 110# white, whisper white

Tropical Vacation

Hanna's off on a tropical vacation somewhere. I must say I'm a bit jealous. I was dreaming of a sunshine vacation but it isn't going to happen this spring as Ian just started a new job. Perhaps in the fall we can go somewhere warm like we did in 2006.
