Hanna Valentine

When I saw this Hanna set, I knew I had to have one!!!!!!  This set is called Sweet Celebrations.  All of these sets have been fun to play with.  They’ve especially been fun to Paper Piece.  I took my new Basic Grey Two Scoops 6×6 Paper padout for inspiration.  Then I thought….. “Hmmmmmm…. wouldn’t it be cool if her dress was the smaller print of the patterned paper that I’ll use for the background?”  And so that is what I did! 🙂  I took out the smaller pattern of Swirl for her dress and then I used the regular print of the 12×12 paper and used that for the background.

I colored her with my Copic Markers. Some people have asked me which style of marker I like better.  To be honest, it really depends.  I started out with the Original makers because I like the fine tip.  I find it easier to control.  But, I am picking up some sketch markers and I love those, too.

I am so addicted to embossing powder right now.  I seem to emboss everything now.  The greeting is embossed with Stampendous Chocolate Brown.  I then used White Pearlsembossing powder from Stampendous for the lips.  It’s translucent, but in the right light, you can see the white pearly finish.  I just love these embossing powders.

This gorgeous ribbon was purchased by my dear friend StarLitStudio.  I’m so in love with the look and feel of it.  I also have it in a light green/celery color! 🙂

Well, tomorrow eP and Drew turn one.  We hope to have some fun planned.  Stay tuned….. 🙂

    I have a question. What is the proceedure to do the dress with the paper? Do you stamp then cut the paper out or stamp, cut and then stamp again. Can you post, or email me, how to use the decortive paper in the stamping design? Thank you,
