Hanna Stamps is releasing a new line of stamps featuring an adorable little moose named Riley. They are wood-mounted red rubber....and they stamp like a dream! A total of six new Riley images will be released on February 1st---this image is called 'Easter Chick Riley'. I used Basic Grey's 'Oh Baby Girl' line of DP since it reminds me of the beautiful, soft colors seen in little girl's frilly Easter dresses. I added a ribbon blossom to each side of the sentiment and gave the eggs & baby chick some 'bling' with my clear Spica pen.
Stamps: Easter Chick Riley-by Hanna Stamps; Papertrey sentiment.
Paper: GP white CS, Basic Grey-Oh Baby Girl DP, Lovely Lilac.
Ink: Gable Green, Pretty in Pink, Lovely Lilac.
Accessories: Copic markers, clear Spica pen, ticket corner punch, brads, ribbon, dimensionals, sponge daubers.
This is a new set from Hanna Stamps, called 'Domestic Goddess'. Pretty much describes all of us, huh?? Lots of cute images in this set! The DP is from Paper Studio----I seem to be gravitating toward brighter, happier colors more and more during this cold, nasty weather---it just cheers me up! Now, if I could just get rid of the huge piles of snow in our front yard---that would be great! I added a smaller version (for me, anyway) of my ribbon blossom....the space beneath Hanna's image just felt a bit too empty without it.
Stamps: Domestic Goddess & Things Hanna Would Say---by Hanna Stamps.
Paper: Regal Rose, Rose Red, So Saffron, Gable Green, GP white CS, Paper Studio DP.
Ink: Rose Red, Regal Rose, So Saffron, Gable Green.
Accessories: Ticket corner punch, brads, Marvy scalloped punch, SU circle punches, ribbon, dimensionals, sponge daubers, Copic markers.
Since it's Sunday, I'll have some time to stamp later this afternoon....check back for some new creations.....and thanks for checking in with me......have a great day!

(Sorry, I haven't learned (yet) how to 'write-in' a link with the company name and stuff... Someday...someday.)
My Favorite Things holds a 'Release Party' at the first part of each month. During the party, a challenge is posted by one of the designers on the MFT Design Team. The challenge will be different each month and this month's challenge was to 'Think Outside the Box'. The challenge was to create a project that IS NOT a square or a rectangle, to make any other shape out there…. circles, triangles, octagons, hexagons, just not a square or rectangle.
Everyone is encouraged to play along and the challenge is left open for 24 hours to give everyone time to upload. (We all know that not everybody can attend the party, and that's why the challenge is open for one day.) Though you are encouraged to use MFT stamps when you enter, it is NOT required!! A cut-off time is posted, and a winner is chosen. The entries have been outstanding, so it's been VERY tough for the ladies on the DT to narrow it down!
The Guest Designer receives the new stamp releases for the following month (before they're available to the public) and their creations are uploaded and featured right along with the MFT Design Team's stuff during the next month's 'Sneak Peek's' and Release Party.
We would love to have you play along with us----be sure to join us in February!
I'll be back later this morning with a couple of things to show you. Have a great morning everybody!

Sweet Celebrations is a new release from Hanna Stamps---available today! It was refreshing to use the bright colors associated with Valentine's Day after working on Christmas cards for so long. My favorite little stamp in this set is the 'kissy lips'. SO much fun to use, and it makes a cute background as well as main image.
Hanna sports an adorable, shorter hairstyle in this set---giving you the option of changing Hanna's look when you use this image with stamps in the rest of your Hanna Stamps sets.
I added clear glaze pen to the 'kissy lips' images, her red purse, the box of chocolates, and her pink lipstick. It adds just a touch of dimension for a bit more interest. A Clear Spica pen was used to add shimmer to her dress, shoes, and the small pink hearts surrounding Hanna in the main image. Lots of shine and shimmer on this card! It was nice to have you stop by today! Be sure to say 'Hi'! Have a great day everybody!
