Window Treatment

Tomorrow is the BIG day for Hanna Stamps lovers - and really, what's not to love, huh??? This set, Tis the Season, will be on sale, along with But I Want It over on the Hanna Stamps website!!! Remember, no S/H on any order anywhere, so take advantage of Kristi's generosity while you can!!!

I ain't gonna lie... This card WILL NOT be one duplicated for this year's Christmas cards. Boy, did I struggle with this card, trying to get what was in my head on paper! Oh well, I'm pretty happy with the results.

Miss Hanna is cut out of the box in this card. (Imagine my fun cutting out that teeny tiny arm and hand, btw!) She is decorating her window with the adorable ornaments from the set. She is paper pieced with last year's SU! Christmas paper - don't you love that skirt? Oh, and check out her boots! I pieced those as well, but the "fur" is LA that was not heat set, so it's still cream, and while it was still wet, I sprinkled it with Brownstone MSL glitter. SO pretty IRL! And I didn't even have to mask her feet for the oval because they were paper pieced! Got to love that! The rest of her was colored with Copics.

The ornaments were stamped on a piece of CS vellum, and colored with Copics. I made the "panes" by layering 4 small Sky squares onto a larger black square and leaving a small space in between. Then I made sure that her hand and arm were lined up right before I adhesed (yes, I realize that that's not spelled correctly, but I like a little variety in my life, KWIM?!?) it all down. The photo corner is there to give the illusion of a curtain.

And lastly, the sentiment is stamped on a piece of transparency. It kind of arcs over the main image, and is held on the card by the ribbons. The bkgd was Cuttlebugged with my Snowflake folder.

Well, tomorrow, I'll have another Hanna card for you, so I'll see you then! Have a good one!

  16. I haven't been able to keep up with blogs lately - it's been fun to scan through your artwork today! I just LOVE this card!! And so many others - sadly I don't have time to comment on all the ones I love (because I love them all!) but let me just say I'm drooling all over the keyboard! And I think you've also joined a couple more design teams since last time I visited - CONGRATS!! You are on quite a roll!!
