AnnaBelle Blog Hop - November


Hello,


Hello and welcome to the AnnaBelle Stamps November Blog Hop.

The Belles will be sharing projects made using Annabelle Stamps new Digital design papers which come with matching ribbons and Sprinkles. We are also using another of the Christmas sets, Decorated  Christmas.


The Blog Hop starts and finishes at the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog. If you arrived here from Andrea's Blog you're on the right track! When you leave me you hop over to Kylie's blog.  Leave a message on each of the blogs before Friday 4pm AEST and you could win the following:

Your own set of Chilli & Emerald Digi Design Papers (in either A4 or US Letter).
5 m Chilli satin ribbon
5 m Emerald satin ribbon
with the matching 5mm Sprinkles.

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




For my card today I chose to work with the soft Avocado coloured digital paper. I've used the small baubles as a centre for the rosettes which, I think means I can use this little set for much more than Christmas cards :).

By importing the solid colour along with the polka dot into Photoshop Elements I was able to print one A4 sheet which gave me the card base as well as the polka dot card to make the rosettes for this card.
Another thing I like about printing your own dp is that printing on one side only  means the inside is white, ready to write your message. If you want double sided card for a dimensional project you just flip the card over and send it through the printer again......how easy is that!

I've used Marion's scoring to create a grid over smooth white card.
Punched two strips of the polka dot card one a 1" the other 3/4" and scored it at 1/4" intervals to make the rosettes.
Two of the small baubles stamped and dressed with an avocado Sprinkle sit in the centre of the rosettes with some of the beautiful avocado satin ribbon, wrapped around the bottom of the card.

Go check out the store to see all the pretty combinations included in these digital paper packs, I think you'll love them!

On with the hop.
