Say it in…Sentiments

Posted by on November 4, 2011 in Annabelle Stamps, Challenges | 16 comments

Welcome to another challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. This week’s challenge is one that made my heart skip a beat – Say it with Sentiments.

I didn’t use as many sentiments as I had planned to, but I did use one sentiment many times…hope this still counts! Either way, I had fun making this card and I hope that it inspires you to play along with us!

I finally got to play with some new MFT dies that I won about a month ago – LOVE them! I used a tiny little ‘love’ sentiment from the Squared Posies set and also the background script stamp from BBD6 set. I finished it off with some AnnaBelle pearls and a twine bow! I am entering this into the current Wee Memories Challenge #74 – to use buttons, brads or bows.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps “Squared Posies” stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps “Backgrounds By Design 6” stamp set
Ink: Distress Ink – Barn Door, Versafine Ink โ€“ Vintage Sepia
