Friday Feature – Splat Attack

Happy Friday Peeps!


For this week’s Friday Feature at AnnaBelle Stamps, the Belles are using the newly released stamp set Splat Attack. Very trendy right now. If you want to grab yourself a set, Andrea has it discounted by 20% for one whole week.

I decided to have a bit of fun this week. When I first saw the Splat Attack set, I thought of creating some little creatures! Fun, doncha think? I’ve created several projects suitable for a birthday party.

First up an Action Wobble card!

And here it is in full ‘action wobble’ mode. SO much fun!

On my recent holiday, I came across some glassine bags from Big W and make some little treat bags.

Next are some treat tubes filled with Skittles…and yes I did sample of few.

I love how the grizzly faced one is staring at the happy one – gotta love those unpredictable googly eyes!

Hello Sunshine

Hello. It’s time for another sketch challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps.


I’ve been at my parent’s farm for the past week and I took limited supplies with me, so I kept things simple this week. I even cut my own corners with scissors as I left my corner chomper at home. Can you tell? Hope this card beings you some sunshine wherever you are.

Muse #31

Hello. I am back with another card for the Muse Card Club.



This card is actually a mini card – but still pretty in its own right. I tried my hand at some layered stamping to create a one layer card. I felt however that the card needed a little lift, so I added some teal spotty washi tape and a strip inked with Raspberry Jam Hero Arts ink. So it is almost a one layer card 🙂

Here are some of the guidelines if you are unfamiliar with how Muse works.

  • Use the Muse card as inspiration, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse.
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions.
  • Vote for 3 of your fellow member’s submissions that you find inspiring, once voting opens.

For the full challenge guidelines go here.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Remember When stamp set

Ink: Hero Arts Inks – Bubblegum, Raspberry Jam

Card: X-Press It Copic Blending Blending Card

Other Supplies: Post it notes (for masking), Washi tape (Teal dots – brand unknown), WRMK corner chomper

Hope you can find some time to play along,
