Say it with…Twine

Happy Friday,

Welcome to another challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. This week is an awesome challenge and one I have been looking forward to! Say it with twine…who doesn’t love twine? And it was even easier for me as Andrea has the most excellent twine in store…I LOVE the new 0.8mm twine that comes in so many awesome colours! Check them out here.

I had so much fun making this card and I love how it turned out!

I created the twine flowers by sticking a large glue dot onto the back of each button. I then cut small lengths of twine and created each petal.Β  I then adhered each flower to the card with Glossy Accents. I added some shading to the stems and leaves with a green Prismacolor pencil.

Supplies:

Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Garden Silhouettes (for leaves, grass and sentiment), AnnaBelle Stamps Fanciful Flowers (stems), AnnaBelle Stamps BBD#7 (gingham clouds)
Ink: Versafine – Onyx Black, Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, Versacolor – Tea Green

Say it in…Yellow and White

Hi there,

At AnnaBelle Stamps this week we have another colour challenge for you. Hope that you can play along with us. We would love to see your creations.

(tag – ac067)

I will admit that I struggled a little with this colour combo, yellow is not my normal go to colour. But alas, after about 4 attempts I came up with the following – slightly different versions of the same thing.

I created the background panel by alternatively adhering thin strips of yellow to a white piece of card. I then cut these into strips and then re-adhered them creating a diamond pattern. The sentiment and leaves are from the Garden Silhouettes stamp set. I thought the sentiment matched the retro background.

And here is version 2.

Supplies:

Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Garden Silhouettes
Ink: Versafine – Onyx Black
Card: AnnaBelle Stamps pre, -cut cards, Yellow bazzill x 2 shades
Other Supplies: Fiskars cutting board, WRMK Corner Chomper, satin ribbon – white, Zots glue dots

Butterfly thanks

Hi ya,

I made this card a couple of weeks ago but didn’t get to post it. I am a little butterfly obsessed at the moment. The sentiment is a Hero Arts one – it is an outline sentiment – but I just coloured it in to make it solid. The patterns on the butterfly are from the Background By Design #7 from AnnaBelle Stamps.

Supplies:

Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps BBD#7 stamp set, Hero Arts Find Joy (CL497)
Ink: Distress Inks – Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans – Onyx Black
Card: AnnaBelle Stamps smooth white card,
Other Supplies: AnnaBelle Stamps 0.8mm natural twine, Zots glue dots – small, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Glossy Accents – to adhere butterflies, Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch

Just a quick one from me today,

Thanks for visiting,

Marion
