AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Hop
Hello again and welcome to another AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Hop. You should have arrived from the sweet and talented Patti’s blog. If you want to start the hop from the beginning, head on over to the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog. Are you in the mood to win a fabulous stamp set? Well read on.
Today the Belles are showcasing the stamp set “Holly Branch”. This would have to be one of my favourite Christmas stamp sets from AnnaBelles…but then again there are so many beautiful Christmas stamp sets in the store…
For today’s card, I have taken some inspiration from a couple of cards that Jennifer McGuire has showed us in Holiday Card Boot Camp 2011. I have been enjoying the classes, but have not had a chance to have a play until now – been too busy writing school reports! Would you believe that this is my FIRST ever shaped card?
I made the holly wreath (I did a little tutorial a while ago – you can see it here) and then I cut it out…was a bit fiddly, but I think worth it. Coloured it in with Copics and added some pearls (that I coloured in with Copics as well as I ran out of AnnaBelle cherry sprinkles!) I did a little background stamping with BBD #6 (LOVE that stamp set).
