Say it with…snowflakes

Hi guys,

This week at AnnaBelle Stamps we are embracing winter and are saying it with snowflakes. Even though it doesn’t snow where I live – snow is such an amazing and fascinating creation. Check out this site to see some awesome images of real snowflakes under a microscope. Wow! How creative is God?

For today’s project all the Belles are using the set Gifted Swirls – which also happens to the prize for this week. It is a great Christmas set, but can also be used for non-Christmas cards or projects like mine.

And what is inside I hear you ask? Well when I think of cold wintry weather (like we had here yesterday), I think of chocolate…it always warms my heart!


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Gifted Swirls Stamp set

Ink: Distress Inks – Broken China

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps pre-cut smooth white cards (cut to size), Bazzill card – dark blue,

Other Supplies: Blending tool, AnnaBelle Stamps Clear Hi-Gloss embossing powder, heat gun, Spellbinders circle die – Standard circles small, Cuttlebug, Carl Craft circle punch, Memory Box – Tessatina Border die, AnnaBelle 3mm sprinkles – metallic, Tombow adhesive, Saddle stitch ribbon – dark blue, chocolate (yummo).
