Annabelle Stamps - Say it with.......

Bev has some Wild Orchid Candy available on her blog interested?  See the right hand side bar for the link.










EMBOSSING!



It's been a busy week at Annabelle Stamps with the July preview, but the weekly challenges are still running.
Andrea has challenged us this week to Say It With Embossing. The theme is Christmas.......well everyone in blogland is doing it so why not us!  Why not combine the challenges and use last weeks sketch, remember there is a prize for the winner of the sketch and you have until next week to get you entry in.




Here's my card.  I love this little Holly set from last Christmas so stamped one of the images onto pale green card using VersaMark ink. I've used a clear embossing powder to emboss them so they just stand out.......no colouring! Add some ABS red satin ribbon and cherry sprinkles for a little traditional Christmas colour.
The sentiment was embossed using ABS rich gold embossing powder onto PL pure white card, with the smallest holly image stamped twice and coloured with Copics.  Labels 9 by Spellbinders cut the shape which was attached to the card base with foam dots.
That's a start on this years Christmas cards!!! 

Thanks for calling past, I hope you can join in our challenge, it's no fun without you!

Till next time................

Hello Sue Rose! Your CAS card is so very pretty -- got me inspired and I got another Christmas card made. Embossing with the sketch challenge. Will probably wait till tomorrow to post it since it's almost midnight now.
