It's Hanna-time!

It's time for another new Hanna Stamps release this Friday, and OOOOOH DOGGIE, you're gonna love the new sets! There are 5 new sets being released, so make sure to head over to Splitcoast and check out all the new samples that will be posted this week! If you click on the link HERE, you'll be able to see all of the team's samples in one view! There will be PLENTY of eye-candy coming at you! This week I'll be posting a new Hanna sample on my blog every night. And tonite, there's a bonus post, too! Check out the Crafty Secrets blog HERE and you'll see more creations with the new bird-lovers set!

I made a trip to the dollar store in search of some pet-friendly items to alter. I scored a cute milk-bone soft toy and some rawhide chews, and set to work making some samples! The soft-toy came with a bone-shaped tag, so I traced the tag onto white cardstock and stamped Eddie here onto the tag. (This little guy reminds me of Eddie from Frazier.) The dogs are SO easy to color, I used 2 contrasting brown shades of Copic markers to color them in. Kristi from Hannastamps is carrying her own line of Copics, with AWESOME color combos! So if you haven't taken the plunge yet and want a great starter set, check them out HERE!

The card was done using a Sassafrass Lass "Blue Boutique" diecut tag. I stamped the dog and hydrant image on white paper, colored it in, and attached the image to the front of the heart tag.

Patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye, "Out & About" Tiny Dots. Ribbon is from Starlit Studio's Ebay store, by May Arts.

The rawhide treat box was done with a $1.00 red Popcorn box from Creative Cuts and More. I took an exacto knife and cut out the center of one of the box sides, and attached a transparency sheet to the inside so that you can view the treats inside. Since the treats are a little bit heavier than candy would be, I used Killer Red Tacky tape to hold the box together. I made a little topper with patterned paper and stamped woof woof across the top of the box.
You will DIE when you see all the dogs that are being released this Friday! There is something for EVERY dog lover! HINT HINT! :)
