AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday everyone,

Welcome to another stop on the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Hop. You should have arrived from Patti’s blog. Today the AnnaBelle DT are once again showcasing one of the August stamp releases called Squared Posies.

After stamping the flower several times, I used my sponge daubers to ink them with distress inks and then cut them out…the white gel pen added another element of interest as did adding glossy accents to the flower centres. My inspiration for this card came from my very talented blogging buddy Therese. You can check out her card here.
