Annabelle Stamps - A Christmas Wish

Hello Blogger's ,

Hope you're ready to Hop around with us again this month.   Andrea's blog should be your first stop. Remember to leave a comment on each blog as you hop past for your chance to win the set previewed. Your last comment should be on the Annabelle Stamps Blog.   If you came here from Theresa's Blog you're on the right track.

Annabelle Stamps have two sets for November and the first one previews today.  I love this little set Andrea designed for us, it's the perfect set for those last minute Christmas cards.  I've made a few bits and think the majority of my cards this year will feature this set.

Take a look at 'A Christmas Wish'.

here's my first card:


These pretty hanging snowflakes are so fine.......they really do look pretty embossed in ABS Opaque Vanilla. I've added some green Stickles for a little sparkle and the punched circle is popped up on foam dots.  My sentiment label is also embossed and decorated with ABS Stars and one of the tiny white petals set with an Artichoke Sprinkle.  I love this gorgeous new ribbon Andrea is stocking in the shop....such a lovely shade of green.   I've added a little decoration to the inside of this one too.


This  set is perfect for those of us who love the CAS style. My second card is very CAS, using a combination of Kraft with red and white .......perfect for Christmas.


I flipped the background for this card and stamped the pretty sentiment flourish in Pear Pizzaz, with the sentiment the same as the background in VersaColor Crimson.
Here's more of the striped ribbon, this time in red and white. I've also added some white linen thread and a red button. The large Scalloped red border was cut with my PI.



One more little project to share with you today....... I've decorated a little treat box which was cut from some dp on the PI.  It's the cutest little box perfect for two or three chocolate slices. Which is what I intend to pop inside.  I like to have little things on the tree or in a dish for people calling in at Christmas, so I've cut a few of these ready to fill.

Now, it's time to go visit with Ida, thanks for calling past I'll be back with November's second set on Wednesday 17th, see you then.....................
