A Sweet Treat From Hanna

I am so excited that you will be able to buy the Sweet Celebrations set so soon. I have been getting such a positive response to the things I have made with it and I know that quite a few of you are excited to buy this one! You can now see the whole set on the Hanna Stamps site.

Today I decided to make a Valentine for a friend. For the chipboard tag, I stamped Hanna and colored her using my ink pads and aquapainter. I made her a blond this time just for fun! I stamped lots of the little background chocolate stamps in a collage like fashion, on a piece of whisper white and did two step stamping with the lips. I stamped tiny hearts in pixie pink. The sentiment is by Inkadinkadoo -- I have had it for awhile and thought it would be perfect on here. The ribbon is some I picked up the other day at Recollections. I still cannot believe that they are closing all their stores. I am enjoying the sales though. Paper is Diecuts With A View - Pink Stripe. I plan to add some crystal effects on the lips to make them more glossy, but I decided to get this uploaded first and do that later. (I have to run and make dinner in a second and then clean up, then baths, bed etc.) In the cello bag, I wrapped some silver wrapper snickers minis in stamped labels that are similar to the background paper I designed.

The little bucket has some super fun things in it. I made it to match the candy bag tag. The only thing stamped in it is an altered matchbox. It also contains - Swirly Strawberry lipsmackers, a little test tube filled with heart shaped brads in pink, red and white, a small bag filled with pink, brown and white with brown dots prima flowers, a set of 6 yards of Valentine ribbons, and some red stickles. The pail was actually hard to work with as it gets smaller at the bottom, but I made the paper work for me -- I made it two pieces that overlap under the handle piece. I added ribbons from my collection.

Hopefully you are starting to get ready for Valentines Day. I know around here it gets mighty busy from Christmas on until the end of Feb. My DH and I will celebrate our 6th anniversary on Jan 5th (I have a really cool thing I am doing and I will upload it later - maybe tomorrow), and there are three birthdays in our family in February (including mine - ugh - I hate getting old). Anyway, don't forget to stop by Hanna Stamps on Friday to get your set ordered. Trust me, you won't regret it -- this one is AWESOME!
