If you've arrived to see the Annabelle Stamps July preview day 2 and join the Competition to win a set, please scroll down, this is my second post today.







I missed the July release day at Waltzingmouse Stamps as I was overseas.  I did manage to see some of the lovely cards made with Claire's latest sets and needless to say have a wish list!   Just need a couple of weeks to get over the post holiday belt tightening inflicted by 'The Boss'. Fellow crafter's understand I'm sure....... well the married ones that is.



My card was made using Fancy Phrases.  I  like the elegant scroll work surrounding the sentiment block. I've added the small scroll top and bottom and either side of the centre strip of dp.

1.  Cut SU Pacific Point to make a 5.5" x 4.25" top fold card.
2.  Mark a 2" section through the middle of the card and stamp the small scroll down each side in MS Ocean ink.
3. Cut a 2" strip of polka dot dp and wrap a thin strip of ribbon around it before attaching this to the card.
4. Stamp the fancy frame to some PL pure white card in SU kiwi kiss ink adding the small scroll top and bottom.
5. Stamp the sentiment from the same set using MS Ocean ink. 
6. Using a Spellbinder Label 9 die cut the image and emboss. Add two small blue gems. Using foam tabs attach this panel over the ribbon strip.
7. Tie a bow in the ribbon and attach to card with a glue dot

Thanks so much for your visit, enjoy the waltz there's sure to be lots of inspiring projects on show.  

I'm back on the 19th, we have a fun set  for day 3 of the Annabelle Stamps July previews with another chance to win a set.  
Hope you can call by...........
