Hanna Stamps February Challenges

I have recently fallen in love with Riley from Hanna Stamps. I have received several different images of Riley through Wish RAK on SCS. I just placed my first order the other day to finally have some Rileys of my own. There are 14 Rileys heading to my house this week!

I was reading the Hanna Stamp's forum on SCS and noticed that they had two challenges this month to win the new releases of Hanna sets. This just happens to work out good for me since I do not own any Hannas and did not order any this time around.

Here is my entry for HSFBC1:

This challenge was to incorporate fabric into your card or patterned paper if you did not have any fabric. Since my first true "craft" love lies with quilting, I had plenty of fabric on hand. I received this image of Fishing Riley this week and I could not wait to color him. I thought this card came out great.

Here is my entry for HSFBC2:

This challenge was to make a card that was not square or rectangle. I received some Top Note die cuts from Wish RAK and someone cut two together to make a card. So I used Cat's Eye Chalk in Olive Pastel to dab onto the front of the card and the edges so it was not plain white. I figured that I could kill two birds with one stone and make a St. Patty's Day card for my friend Heather too, so I used Clover Riley for this card.

  1. This is so creative! It's great how you have used the top note die to make a shape card.

  2. Riley is so cute! Congratulations on having your blog selected for the weekly blog challenge under WishRAK on SCS. I chose to CASE the card of Riley fishing - a lot of the guys in our family love to fish! Or maybe I will send this with a care package to the troops.
