In celebration of Hanna Stamps first year in business, Kristi has lots of giveaways for you!!!!!

Links to the Hanna Stamps design team

I also have everyone listed in my side bar to the right so you can use that too.

So for my blog specifically, just simply leave a comment on any of my posts today, tomorrow or Wednesday for your chance to win. The drawing will be closed at 10PM EST on Wednesday 9/30. You can enter once per day. The winner of my blog candy will receive a new Riley or Sophie of Kristi's choice which she will be mailing to you. I am not sure what one it will be but I can guarantee you that you will NOT be dissappointed because they are all soooo cute and I love them all! That is why I can't post a picture this time of the blog candy for you.

In addition to the blog candy there are going to be daily challenges posted in the hanna stamps forum on SCS so you can increase your chances of winning a prize by participating in them. Today's challenge is an inspiration challenge hosted by the wonderful generous owner of Hanna Stamps- the one and only Kristi Ferro. You are to make a card inspired by a room in your home. For my card I was inspired by the comforter on my bed. It is all flowery and foo foo with colors of mauve, sage and soft sky. This is a picture of my bedroom:



So I decided to pick out the soft sky and run with that and the stripes. I also needed a card for my nephew's baptism so can you imagine my pure excitement when I found out one of the sets being released this month was perfect for it? Here is my card:



This card uses one of the 4 new stamps set being released by Hanna Stamps on Friday October 3rd called For the Soul. All the sets are awesome and I even have a favorite new hanna now. Anyway, I stamped my bg stamping one of the cross images from the set repeatedly on white paper and embossing it with clear embossing powder. I then took a mist water bottle filled with soft sky reinker and water and sprayed lightly over it (this was Lynn's technique challenge today on SCS). I then punched my corners with my ticket corner punch and tied my gorgeous new ribbon from Martha Stewart around it before adhering to my card. I stamped the scroll cross image in sky, die cut using my oval nesties and sponged around the image while still in the die. The oval was attached to my matted squares and adhered to my card using pop dots. I accented the cross with a spica clear glitter pen and a rhinestone and the corners were all accented with pearls. The finished size is 4 1/4 inch square. I hope you (and my brother's family like it).

Supplies:
stamps- hanna stamps For the Soul
CS- soft sky, white
ink- soft sky, versamark
accessories/tools- ticket corner punch, oval nesties, clear ep, sky reinker, spica glitter pen, rhinestone, pearls, Martha Stewart satin ribbon


Don't forget to stop by the other DT blogs for your chance to win. Hope to see you back here on my blog tomorrow for another sneak peek and another chance to win.

Also, if you have another minute, stop by the DRS Designs blog today to see the bi-weekly challenge which is posted today. It was anything but a card so you won't want to miss what the DT members have created to inspire you.

Thanks for stopping in!
