AnnaBelle Stamps Lil Monster's Balloon. ac073U



Come and play along with us this week as we use these gorgeous colours on our cards.
I've had a sneak peek at the Belle's cards all of which you will find on the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog.  Better still go visit with the girls.......links under the DT Tab at the top of my page:)

I had so much fun with Lil Monster's Balloon last week I've used the same image for this weeks card!
 The good news is that Andrea will soon be adding a new line to the shop.....Can you guess?
AnnaBelle Stamps will be introducing DIES ...... yeah!!!!!

Our favourite Lil Monster's Balloon will have a die to match very soon now and it cuts BEAUtifully!
Here's a close up......


Keep watching the store .......they're coming very soon and we couldn't wait to share with you:)

My card using both the stamp and die also has an embossed panel that I inked before and after I ran the white card through the embossing machine.  Did you know the May challenge at Stamp, Embellish, Create was to 'Add Texture' to a project? There are so many ways to add texture, embossing is just one.  Hope you'll join in with this NEW monthly challenge too. There will be a prize so go check it out here.



I've coloured Lil Monster with a mixture of Copic's and Prisma's and double stacked the balloon using Helmars Scrap dots . 

ABS double faced satin ribbon inApple Green and some Lime Sprinkles complete this one.

Edit:
Hope you can play along with us again this week, this Lil Monster is going out to one lucky winner.




Work is progressing in the 'Blue House'..........The tall hedges have been tamed, we're just hoping they survive the shock as they might be needed for shade come the Summer. A very pleasant Irish man did the deed and will be in charge of hedges and grass from now on! He brought me a present of some free range eggs when he called in today........I like!
The painters started on Tuesday, so Monday saw me packing things away again!!! We're looking a bit dusty but, it's good to see bright white ceilings. Goodbye to hot pink and mauve as the first coat of undercoat goes on the hall and second bedroom. 
Not too keen on the being up and dressed by 7am I must say.... but the up-side is I get to hide out in my craft space.  Did I tell you I've moved Ian out of our shared office?  He now shares the big back room along with a wall of boxes, the spare TV, 2 TV chairs, a coffee table and a couple of headboards.......not too bad for him .....I think!

Have a great week end..........
