AnnaBelle Stamps - Snowflakes




Hiya....Friday again, time for AnnaBelle Stamps challenge and take a look......Snowflakes!  It's pretty cold here at the moment......no snow in this part of New South Wales though.  Snowflakes means Christmas to me and I need to get busy so I can get my cards away early. I'm thinking to make  batches of a couple of designs this year and CAS cards that are easy to mail might be the way to go! 

This week's challenge seemed the perfect way to try a couple of ideas :)


Not the best pictures I'm afraid, I had an accident with my prime 50mm lens and broke it........oops. I'm not the most popular girl in this house at the moment as that was this years B'Day present!

I stamped the snowflakes from ABS Gifted Swirls in s.e.i. tiffany chalk ink, to form an oval frame for the embossed sentiment.  Three silver Sprinkles and some silver twine,  between two lines embossed using a Scor-Pal  and this CAS card is ready. 


 For the second one I was thinking Christmas decorations so.......I masked a circle and sponged SU Baja Breeze before adding the gold embossed snowflakes, with the sentiment below.  Gold twine with a bow completed this one.

Check in with the Belles, who are also playing with this set and I'm sure they have projects to inspire you.  I know lots of you are enjoying summer vacations and half term here in Australia but I hope you can  play along with us this week.......... you could win your copy of AnnaBelle Stamps - Gifted Swirls.




I spent Thursday morning with the Patchwork ladies and guess what..... they were talking about this years  Christmas party........Already!  Still with a group I guess it pays to set the date in plenty of time so everyone pencils it in. I remember how hard it was in Sydney with 'Les Girls'!

Christmas......it's coming!


Thanks for calling past.......see you soon.

CAS is definitely the way to go for Christmas cards. I love both cards but esp the second with the pop of the gold embossing.
