Annabelle Stamps.........ABSC001

Hello blogger's!

So glad you dropped by today I have a sweet Christmas card to show you. A few days back I mentioned about an Australian Stamp Co. Annabelle Stamps.....they have some candy up for grabs to celebrate the new blog. I ordered Holly Branch and was hanging off making a card for the very first sketch challenge. It arrived today!!! yeah so nice not to have to wait a full week for stamps. Anyway I sat down and made this card to enter in the challenge ..... hope I'm not too late.

I have to tell you these are clear stamps and I found that they stamped very well, so good quality. I used one of the five sentiments from the set as my focal image, stamped with SU Kiwi Kiss onto plain white card. Cut with a Nestability die and sat on some dark green which was scalloped . I also stamped one of the five holly images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap of white card and cut it out. I coloured this with Copics and used some of the Cherry Sprinkles, that I ordered at the same time, for the Holly berries. I attached this to the main image with double sided tape. The dp is from DCWV Nana's Nursery and Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses. Plain Rouge card from American Crafts was shaped with a Fiskars border punch.
More Sprinkles added, one to each corner per the sketch.

What do you think? I'm happy off to make some more.
I'm so pleased you liked my notepad from yesterday too. I was thinking of all the different ways I could decorate notebooks last night so watch this space.

Suns out again today I loooove this weather, warm without being too hot. Walshie and I are out for dinner tonight and we have to take a boat to get to the venue oohh what fun!!!
