AnnaBelle Stamps - ac164

We're challenging you to pick your favourite sketch from AnnaBelle Stamps this time around.  PINTEREST has a folder full of  sketches so why not go take a look, pick one you like and join the fun.

This was the first one I picked and here's my card featuring 'Fanciful Flowers'......

....but I also liked this sketch

Lat time I flipped it for my card, so today I made a Monochromatic card using the owls from  'Whooo Loves Christmas' and the sketch as is! The sentiment is from 'Love Birds'.

Feature Friday 009 - Och eye the noo.....

This week's Friday Feature is AnnaBelle Stamps, Backgrounds By Design.  Those of you who follow all things ABS will know that Andrea offers a 20% discount on the featured sets, from today until  midnight Sunday AEST.  Just use the code ff009 when you place your order at the store.

I was inspired by Therese's Topical Tuesday post last week and gave her tartan a try........what fun!
AnnaBelle's BBD 7 is the set to use for this and there are so many possibilities, you have to try :)

My tartan was inked in Memento's Grey Flannel, Bamboo Leaves and SU Poppy Parade.  Cuts By Design 002 shapes 1 die cut the label shape. To the label I added a  double button finished with ABS fine twine. 

I also used the musical score from BBD6 for the distressed panel stamped in Memento London Fog.
Even the sentiment comes from the very first BBD 'Numbers'.  
Thanks for taking the time today, now go take a look around the store.......lots of bargains over there.......

AnnaBelle Stamps latest challenge - ac163

Wow, what a  response to the last 'Anything Goes' challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps!!! I've been all around the world leaving comments on some beautiful creations :)  What about this week....hope you'll all join us for a great sketch challenge.

Here's my take on the sketch, featuring LOVE BIRDS from AnnaBelle as well as more of the buttons from the colour collections available and some fine hemp twine.

Dylusions Inks coloured a plain white doily and by adding some PearlEx to water and lightly spritzing the doily first gives this a sparkly finish.

Check in with the Belles for more inspiration, links are under the Design Team tab at the top of my page.

Thanks for calling past.

Scrapbook Boutique - Lovely Aster 2 ways.

Hi Bloggers,

I'm sharing two cards today using more or less the same products from Scrapbook Boutique. One is very CAS the other a little more fancy........which do you prefer?

Evelyn is sharing them along with the 'how to' over on the store blog if you fancy taking a look :)
I've added the product list with links below.

The background of this CAS version uses Faber Castell's Metallic Gelatos.  This was used like a crayon to colour the background stamp. Giving a light spritz with water gives a soft watercolour effect and the Metallic have a shine that is just lovely!

Thanks for calling past................
