Annabelle Stamps Sketch Challenge 029



Hello Blogger's,
Are you ready to play along with the Annabelle Stamps Bling Sketch Challenge #29?   Here is the sketch, and remember one randomly picked entry will win a prize.  This week Andrea will be sending the lucky winner ABS 'Diva'.

Hope you'll take the challenge and play along with us  this week, lets see how many different cards can be made with this great sketch.

This is another of those sketches that would make a great scrapbook page so all you scrapbookers can play along with us too.



I made a card this week and I wanted another Male one so have used three stamps from ABS 'Take The Cake'.   I've used one of the parcels for the round element with the sentiment in the centre adding a cut and popped up balloon.  This week I coloured the white dots on some of ABS tuftan and white spot satin ribbon to match the polka dot dp I used.  I've used the pretty turquoise sprinkles from ABS 6mm Gypsy Sprinkles for the added bling.

Have you ever tried cutting felt with your Spellbinder dies?  It works so well ...... The scalloped border on the sentiment square was made using one of the scalloped square dies and I used a small scalloped circle die to cut more felt to use behind the parcel.    Go on give it a try..........

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

Card: American Craft brown, white card and Kaisercraft Up, up and away dp. Stamps: ABS Take The Cake. Ink  SU chocolate chip, Copic markers and glitter pen. Embellishments: ABS taftan/white dot ribbon, Gypsy 6mm Sprinkles and Tan felt. Equipment: Spellbinder dies Scalloped and plain squares. Small circle and scalloped circle dies.

Love the background paper, and clever use of felt . Have not used felt for ages thanks for inspiration. I like the way you have 'cheers' as main focus and pressy a bit less so.

Fun card and sketch! A friend recently sent me a bit of felt and I was playing with it yesterday with a Sizzix die. Can't wait to show her what I made!!

A great male card Sue! Love the colours in your DP and that you thought to colour the dots on your ribbon! I've coloured plain ribbon before but hadn't thought to do that...thanks!
Have a great weekend,
Andrea
