Hello Bloggers........It's time for AnnaBelle Stamps second Blog Hop for October and we're  featuring another of the new October sets designed by Andrea called 'Gifted Swirls'.


The Blog Hop starts and ends at the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog. If you came here from Andrea's blog you're on the right track. When you leave me you should be heading over to Kylie's  fabulous Blog. 

I've had lots of fun making cards with this set and have a few things to share today starting with another non traditional Christmas card and tag:


I've embossed this image in Silver on hot pink,  adding some ABS crystal star gems for  some bling.
ABS black/white striped ribbon makes an appearance too, as does some silver twine on the little tag.




My second card uses the small accent stamps and the sentiment stamped in VersaMark ink.  The large snowflake was cut using the PI and covered with glitter. I've added one of ABS  buttons from the 'Lake' collection threaded with white cotton. A Spellbinder Edgeabilities die was used for the bottom of this card, Classic Ric Rac. Waterfall Sprinkles added to complete.



Here's my last card featuring the swirly tree from the set. Stamped in SU pear pizzazz and sponged with  Memento new sprout. Spellbinders dies have also been used on this card, Labels 2, Fleur De Lis Accents  and Edgeabilities Classic Scallop for the loopy edge.


The sewing machine came out to add a little edge on the green gingham. Some pretty ABS green/white striped ribbon and more crystal stars to finish off.

I hope these cards show how versatile this little set is. If you continue along the hop I know you'll see lots of fabulous ideas from the girls........and our guest this month too, Karin.    Add your name to the Linkie list below for a chance to win...........Now on to Kylie's blog......have fun!
