Friday Feature – Love Birds

Hello and welcome to Friday Feature at AnnaBelle Stamps. This week the Belles are showcasing the stamp set Love Birds. This stamp set will be 20% off this weekend until Sunday midnight (AEST).

For my first card, I masked off the heart in the middle and then distressed around it using Worn Lipstick. I then stamped the different sized hearts from the set over the distressing. I am currently taking the Online Card Class – Clean and Simple Card Class 2 and was inspired by Amber’s beautiful tree card on Day 1. I took her idea and ‘reversed’ it.


I am entering this into the Anything Goes challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog.

Forever in my heart

And because the Belles are showcasing the Love Birds set, I have another completely different card that I made a while ago, but never posted. I found it on my computer so thought I would share it.

Edit: And it just so happens that this card fits so nicely into the Online Card Class – Day 4! Ha!

Love Always
