Say it With…Christmas!

Posted by on July 20, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps, Christmas Cards | 10 comments

Happy Friday to you my friends. Have you seen that AnnaBelle Stamps is getting the Stamp of Approval over in the Moxie Fab World this week? Make sure you check it out here.

Hope you are in a festive mood, because this week we are saying it with Christmas. We all have to make a head start on those Christmas cards (that will sneak up on us and be here before we know it!)

This week all the Belles are using the stamp set Gifted Swirls, which will also be the prize this week. I have made a simple one layer card with the help of some masking. I coloured in the stamped image with a distress marker and added the buttons for a pop of colour.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Gifted Swirls Stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps Jewelled Tree stamp set (sentiment)

Ink: VersaFine – Onyx Black, Distress ink – Crushed Olive, Shabby Shutters, Peel Paint, Distress Marker – Black soot, Versacolor ink – Tea Green, Bamboo

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps pre-cut smooth white cards

Other Supplies: American Crafts Elements buttons – Daydream Assortment, Mask It film, blending tool, Glossy Accents (to adhere buttons), AnnaBelle Stamps twine 0.8mm – white

Until next time,
