Sentimental Bluebells - Annabelle Stamps Preview


As you read this Walshie and I will be winging our way toward Washington DC having said our sad goodbyes back home......ah!

Here we go with day three of the previews for Annabelle Stamps and today we're featuring a beautiful set called 'Sentimental Bluebells'. I've made a Velum card featuring one of the flower images as well as  a sentiment.  The image has been stamped onto pure white card and coloured with Copic markers and a clear glitter pen.  A Spellbinders Labels 11 die was used to cut the stamped image, the sentiment  as well as the blue card that backs the image .  I've used a fine ribbon with a 5mm pearl added to complete my card.

My second project is a small Kraft gift box that I've covered with some Basic Grey dp. 
The pendant from this set is beautiful and here I stamped it in royal blue, cut it with a Spellbinder circle die.  Then stamped the sentiment onto another piece of card, cutting this to sit on foam dots over the centre of the pendant. This all sits on a scalloped circle of pale blue card.  
To embellish this little box I tied some of Annabelle Pearl pink/hot pink Swiss dots ribbon  in a bow across the front of the box. Added a small loop under a pink petal then added the centre gem and three smaller ones beneath the sentiment. All of these are part of the pink petal kit available from Annabelle Stamps.  

This little box was made using a template provided by Jolande here.

One more set to go for this month and I'll be back to show you my project before all four sets are released on 30th June.  In the meantime I hope you'll pop in on Andrea and the rest of her design team to see all their projects using Sentimental Bluebells. Links are in the sidebar.

Till next time..........

Lovely work Sue, you will have to share your secrets for such a great photo of a clear card, I never photograph mine, but then again I suck at photography!!

I love the clear lines and touches of colour, perfect!

These are absolutely adorable, Sue!
Guess leaving home and family will be difficult. But at least you have a new adventure to experience. Don't forget Michael's while in the US. You will love all the goodies there! You just may need another suitcase after stocking up on goodies, heheheheheheheh!
