AnnaBelle Stamps - March Release - Lil Michelle Swinging By.


Hope you're ready to see the second stamp set from AnnaBelle Stamps March release.
You should have arrived here from Andrea's Blog having started at the AnnBelle Stamps blog.......if not why not start at the beginning to be in the running for Andrea's gift!

Today we're showing another cute image from the Lil Belle's range called Lil Michelle Swinging By.




My little gift set comprises a card with the main image and one of the three sentiments. The little gift box  uses the second of three sentiments as well as the small accent stamp on the tag.


The gathered striped ribbon is from AnnaBelle Stamps as are the Pink gems. The image is coloured with Copic markers and lightly sponged. I used Spellbinder dies to cut the image before hand cutting around the bottom section. The pretty DP is 'Candy Lane' 6 x 6 paper pad from KaiserCraft (Blog Candy from Marcia x) and this sits over SU melon mambo and a white base card.


Just two shades of pink card for the 'matchbox' gift box. Some AnnaBelle striped ribbon holding the little tag stamped with the second sentiment adding the accent stamp set with another pink gem.  Using three of the smaller Spellbinder Blossom dies I made the  flower cut from the scraps of dp and another pink gem sits above the brad holding the layers together.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Here's another card this time using  Autumn colours. 

For this card I used a circle die to cut the image and added the zig zag machine stitches to attach the image over a sponged doily.  More machine stitching over the polka dot dp and a die cut piece of green felt. The last of the sentiments is threaded to some  AnnaBelle Stamps Jute and wrapped around the felt to complete this card.

I'm sure when you arrive at your next stop on the Hop you'll find tons more inspiration......because you're heading over to Kylie's blog........ Enjoy!

Don't forget there are  March Sales at AnnaBelle Stamps ......pop over to bag a bargain!

How the Hop works :
You will need to begin at the ABS blog if you haven't already, and follow the links to each of the DT blogs.  Leave a comment on each as you go and you will end up back at the ABS blog where you can add your name to the Inlinkz widget.  Each hop will run for only 24hrs and random winners will be chosen from the names added to the Inlinkz that have completed the hop.  The names of the winners will be posted on the AnnaBelle Stamps blog on the 17th March.

I like the gathered ribbon in the first one and the felt edges in the second card. Both super cute - the box is really sweet as well and the tag is cool. Hope your back is better.
