Hanna Stamps Passport

I don't know if you have seen this adorable set yet, but Hanna is traveling! I meant to post these sooner, but you know how life goes. This set was recently released by Hanna Stamps (April 4th, 2008), so it is still relatively fresh and new. I had so much fun creating with this set and thought I would share . . .

This first one I just love. I found the paper at JoAnn's and thought it would be perfect for a travel theme. The flowers were in my Prima collection and just happened to match perfectly. I put a dew drop in the center of each flower -- some from the sunflower set I have and the other is just clear. Hanna was colored to match the map paper. I sponged the edges of the paper the image was on to give it a worn feel. I stitched along the edges of the card as well as the sentiment, to make it all coherent . . . I think it turned out pretty well! Card measures 5 1/4 by 5 1/4.






This second card did not turn out quite like I envisioned it. But I still think it works. I wanted to use all the little stamps that came with the travel set to create the background. I colored them all in with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Hanna was also colored with prismas. I masked the rest of the "Don't Forget" sentiment and hand wrote in wear sunscreen -- I thought that would work for a beach vacation. The polka dot ribbon on the bottom was an afterthought, but I think it works with the bright prima flower. I like the layout on this one . . .
