ABSC019 - Inchies


It's Friday here in Australia which means Annabelle Stamps Challenge, which this week is a sketch, brought to us by Theresa Abajo.

I had some fun with scraps of DP and my Copic markers for my card.

I started with a 5 inch square card base of black American Crafts. I added a matt of red card to this, which I embossed with a Swiss dots embossing folder.

The white squares are actually 1.25 inches each and to make sure I got them all the same I used a Spellbinder die!

To decorate my squares I've used two of the parcels and the birthday cake from 'Helen's Party'.
Four of the parcels were paper pieced and four were coloured with Copic markers and the blender pen. These might be small shapes but they are quite easy to cut with a sharp craft knife. I've added some sprinkles to a couple of the Copic coloured parcels to add a little interest. The little 3mm toffee and blackcurrant were the perfect size.

The middle square is home for the Birthday cake which was stamped, coloured and cut out before attaching with foam dots.

No room for a sentiment on the front of this card so I've stamped inside.

I've added a sheet of red paper inside my card and stamped the Sentiment from the same set along with another image, just in Memento tuxedo black ink.

I hope you've settled back into your crafting routine after the Easter break and can play along with our challenge. You have two weeks to submit your card and the link is at the top of this post. If you check the left hand side you'll find links for the girls who make up the design team. Drop in and see them, you're sure to find lots of inspiration there. Andrea's blog will have the Challenge details too.

I'll be back tomorrow to show you the card I made ready for the arrival of a new baby boy!

Till then......

Edit: Just so you know the prize for this challenge is six metres of some of the new ribbons with the handy spools to wrap them on!! I love these..... my ribbon is starting to look very organised!!!!
