Groovy Baby!

I have one more sneak peek of the final set being released tonight after the release party in the Hanna Stamps forum. This is Hippy Chick. Isn't she groovy?! lol

I decided I wanted to create a pocket card for this set. I cut my base at 5x7 and then cut my layers. I chose some bright patterned paper and pulled my colors for it. I colored Hippy Chick in coordinating colors and cut her out. I sewed my patterned paper to the kiwi kiss mat and then stitched the pocket onto my card.

I wrapped some ribbon around my card and used a ribbon tag to add my sentiment. I colored the letters in with a copic marker. Then, I added Hippy Chick on foam adhesive.

Have to have a close up because this image is so cute! I added a little glitter to the flowers on her pants, the rings on her belt, and her head band using copic spica pens. I also added some to the sentiment. Wish you could see it in the photo. Just imagine them all glittery. *smile*

I cut my cardstock to fit my pocket. (Kiwi kiss base is 4x6.) I cut a piece of patterned paper and stitched it to a piece of regal rose cardstock. I rounded the corners and assembled the pieces. Then, I added a few dew drops up in the corner.

When I put the piece into the pocket, I decided that the top needed something extra. So, I stamped some flowers onto the regal rose cardstock above the pocket to add a little something.

The release party is tonight and there is always lots of fun, chatting, and prizes so be sure to join us! The party starts at 9 PM EST.
