AnnaBelle Stamps New Release and Blog Hop

Posted by on September 14, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps | 42 comments

Welcome to the latest stamp and die release blog hop for AnnaBelle Stamps. You should have arrived from the lovely Kylie’s blog.

Today the stamp set ‘Decorated Christmas’ is being released into the store along with it coordinating dies ‘Cuts by Design 003’ and also a decorative border die. Check them out.

This morning I showed you a Christmas Treat bag using the Decorated Christmas stamp set and die (go here if you missed it), so this afternoon I thought I would make a card using the decorative border die. It is designed to compliment the Decorated Christmas set, but I wanted to show you how versatile it is and I have made a non Christmas card and matching tag. Fun fun.

 After die cutting the border I coloured it in with different colours of Copic Markers. The sentiment is from the ‘Shape it Up’ Stamp set.


Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps Decorated Christmas stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps ‘Shape it Up’ stamp set

Ink: Versafine – Onyx Black

Card: AnnaBelle Stamps Smooth White cardstock

Other Supplies: AnnaBelle Stamps Cuts By Design – Border 1 die, Cuttlebug, Copic Markers – BG49, YG03, RV29, YR68, Y17, AnnaBelle Stamps 16mm satin ribbon – light green, AnnaBelle stamps Buttons – Lime, AnnaBelle Stamps twine – 0.8mm white

Now for a GIVEAWAY. In order to be in the running to win your very own ‘Decorated Christmas’ Stamp set and coordinating die, you need to comment on all of the DT’s blog and then head back to the ABS blog and add your name to the inlinkz.
