AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Hop

Posted by on November 14, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps | 22 comments

Hello and welcome to the latest blog hop for AnnaBelle Stamps. You should have arrived from the lovely Sue Kohler’s blog.

This month the Belles are showcasing some new digi papers in the store with matching ribbons and sprinkles. We are also showcasing the stamp set Decorated Christmas. It is a fairly new set, and it coordinates with the newly released Cuts By Design 3 dies.

Today I have made a couple of different ways to jazz up some of your Christmas presents. First is a little bag that uses the Cuts By Design Border 1 die. I have cut the border from a new digi paper from the Chilli collection. The tag is also made from some new digi paper – this time the Emerald collection.

Next up are some really CAS gift tags made from both the Chili and Emerald digi papers. I die cut the mini banner area and backed each tag with another tag. I then stamped the Merry Christmas from the Decorated Christmas set. See how beautifully the papers match the ribbons!

Finally is a gift  topper that I made from the Chilli digi papers. I followed an easy tutorial that I found here. Once again it matches beautifully with the AnnaBelle ribbon and looks great on an AnnaBelle stamps kraft gift box.

Now for a GIVEAWAY. In order to be in the running to win the blog hop prize which is all the Chilli and Emerald Digi papers in either A4 or US size, 5 metres of Chilli ribbon and 5 metres of Emerald ribbon with matching sprinkles, 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. You have until Friday to enter.

Your next stop on the hop is Therese.

Thanks for stopping by,
