If you're following the hop you should have arrived here from Andrea's Blog!

Scribble Scrabble 1:

I used the large border design from this great set and inked it in three colours before stamping it on an angle. Some ABS fine hemp twine with Raspberry Sprinkles separating the text.

Scribble Scrabble 2:

Repeat stamping a sentiment in bright coloured ink. I've used one of the square images and stamped it 'on point' with an Icicle Sprinkle between each joining point.

Printable Pages - Christmas 1 and 2

Such a great idea for all the Christmas Tags and quick little cards.......LOVE these and am planning to make lots!

These next projects use the tags from Printable Pages Christmas 2.

Simply coloured with Prisma pencils adding ABS fine hemp twine, buttons and Sprinkles to decorate.
The little Santa's hat was coloured twice with one cut out.  Some glitter added to the brim and bobble for a little shine then popped up on foam tape.

I've used the pretty holly tags to make a card.  Stamping a sentiment from ABS Holly Christmas set (my all time favourite......if I can say that :)). I've cut a second sprig of holly and popped it up on foam and tied some ABS red.white twine to the top.
The completed tag sits popped up on foam over a strip cut using ABS Cut By Design Borders 1.  Four Chilli hearts finish off the card.

Go check out all the details for these new Stamps and Printable on the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog.
Now on with the hop...............

Keeping out of everyone's way...... not feeling very creative..... Sorry!

Beside The Sea - AnnaBelle Stamps Friday Feature.

Hi Bloggers,

Friday Feature at AnnaBelle Stamps this week and we're sharing projects featuring Beside The Sea.

My card is a super quick CAS card ........ We've just returned home from a little trip to beautiful Adelaide, which for you non Aussies is South Australia.  I seem to have picked up a bit of a cold, not sure if it was the cooler weather down there or a bug from the flight home :(  
You know,  one person sneezes and by the time the plane lands half the flight has caught the bug!
Anyway my craft room has been neglected until late this afternoon, so please excuse the picture, next to no natural light.

The image is stamped to some digital ombre card in Grey Flannel, no colouring..........I think it looks fine without :)  Popped up using foam tabs.
The sentiment is stamped in onyx black to some dark blue card and I've added three blackcurrant Sprinkles.

My card measures 4.25" x 5.5" wide. I've trimmed about an 1.75" from the front, adding a die cut scallop under the front edge.
The image I used is the garden gate from the Flourishes prize set, stamping it off the page and colouring with Prisma pencils.
The sentiment from the same set, is  cut using a Spellbinder  tiny label die and threaded through a length of  seam binding (coloured with a Copic marker) attached to the front of the card and finished with a bow. To complete the card, a  pebble adhered over the bow.
