HEEELLLLLO Hanna! My online friend Kristi Ferro recently started her own stamp line called Hanna Stamps -- and the first set she has to offer are these wonderful stamps called "But I Need It..." I think there is a very big difference in the quality of acrylic stamps -- and Hanna Stamps are QUALITY. Don't you just love the style of these stamps? I knew I needed to use them for this Blogger's Challenge as soon as they arrived in my mailbox.
This week's blogger's challenge was to use an embellishment. Any embellishment. I WAS going to use a silk flower that I died to match my paper --- but then I found this great paper from 3 Bugs in a Rug WITH the flower on it in my stash and I knew what I needed to do! I cut around the edges of the flower -- the flower and the striped paper are one piece. I attached the edges of the flower to add dimension, and popped the button in the middle to add to my paper embellishment. Hanna was colored with Watercolor Crayons. This is a 5" x 7" card.
I am so psyched about these stamps and about this card! My sister is coming to visit next week for my son's confirmation, and one of the things we are doing together is to SHOP! I never make time to shop for myself -- so she and I are going on an expedition to pump up my wardrobe (my biggest fear is that someone will call "What Not To Wear" on me!). Since I am going to PARIS later this month, I need new clothes! These stamps came in the nick of time -- I made this cards for my sister to welcome her to my home and to let her know how excited I am that she will be here with me. She and I are VERY compatible shoppers! She will tell me the truth about how things look, yet still allow me to buy things that I love without saying "Do you really need that?".... She truly understands the phrase "But I need it!..."
Thanks, Kristi! GREAT Stamps!
