Good Monday morning! I hope everyone enjoyed your weekend. We had a great family day at my niece’s Graduation party on Saturday and then yesterday, I lazed around a bit and then got some stamping time in. I found out yesterday morning that I will be working the Rubbernecker Booth at the Gateway Rubber Stamp Getaway in Collinsville, IL this coming weekend, so I’m trying to get myself caught up and maybe ahead before the weekend. A huge task since I get so easily sidetracked – just like now.

At 12:00 midnight on Thursday, Hanna Stamps will be releasing three new sets, and I have a preview of one of the sets for you today. There will also be a Release Party in the Hanna Stamps Company Forum on Splitcoaststampers Thursday night. You won’t want to miss the challenges and there might even be a few surprises. Anyhoo, here’s my preview for you today of Bookworm Hanna.

Bookworm Hanna

The card actually uses five individual stamps from the set, and a whole lot of masking. The books and the coffee cup were stamped separately, cut out and then raised on the table with mounting tape. The entire image was colored with Copic Markers. There is a very faint layer of yellow under the lampshade which is my effort to make it look like the light is actually on. Of course, since the light is on, that side of the chair would be lighter too. The background paper and photo corners are a mixture of the different patterns from BasicGrey Mellow, which I sponged all the edges of with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

  • Stamps: Bookworm by Hanna Stamps
  • Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; BasicGrey Mellow; Prism Herbal Garden Medium and Suede Brown Dark
  • Ink: Tsukineko Brilliance Graphite Black; Ranger Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink

Hope you have a fantabulous day today!
