A Big Bunch Of Love - AC155

Welcome to another sketch challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps!

I stamped Lil Bee's Big Flowers onto some Kraft cardstock and coloured it with Prismacolor Colored Pencils.  I deviated slightly by raising the circle in the sketch a tiny bit, having the flowers over the edge.  

Head to the AnnaBelle Stamps blog to see the gorgeous DT work!

AnnaBelle Stamps New Release Blog Hop!

Hello!  Welcome to my stop on the AnnaBelle Stamps Feature Friday New Release Hop!  You should have come here from Therese's beautiful blog.  If you're starting the hop here, that's okay too!  Just keep hopping till you get back to where you started.  Make sure to leave a comment at each stop and link up at the AnnaBelle Stamps blog post for your chance to win some new release goodies.

My first project for today uses the new set, Designer Flowers.

I kept with a CAS approach for this card set, using embossing and colour choice to let the images pop.  First up is white and black embossing on a red base...

Then black embossing on a white base.  I raised the panel up on some red cardstock to keep with my colour selection.  I'm entering this one in the Addicted to CAS Embossing Challenge.  :-)

And lastly, black and red embossing on a white base, this time using black card to mat my panel.

I really love how this simple set turned out!

As well as the new stamps sets, we also have some new ribbon!  I made a rosette with some for my card using Standing Tall.

The new AnnaBelle Stamps Gingham Ribbon comes in both 6mm & 16mm widths in 6 colours:

I used Bubblegum for my rosette.

AND because it's a Feature Friday, there's a 20% discount when you purchase both new sets together as a combo.  You'll find the combo pack in store HERE - don't place the sets in your cart individually, only the combo pack has 20% off.

Your next stop is gorgeous Gayatri!

Colourful Hearts - AC154

Hi!  It's a colour challenge at the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog today.

I've gone with another CAS card.  I repeatedly stamped a heart from Love Birds using pigment inks and clear embossed them, and black embossed a sentiment from Fanciful Flowers.

I'm also entering this in the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #10.

It's A Birthday Hip Hop!

Hello! Welcome to Angela's 40th Birthday Hip Hop for Unity! Happy Birthday Angela!

In true Angela style, she's celebrating by giving YOU 40% off all stamps! And with some gorgeous new releases today, you certainly won't be starved for choice... :-)

I'm sharing the inspiration project I made for Unity (it was also posted on the Unity blog earlier). I was flipping through Australian Stamping, Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine recently, when I came across a gorgeous Unity feature by Australian cardmaker Edna Morrisedie...

How beautiful are those cards? I'd been meaning to try colouring an image over a text page for a while, and these beauties gave me another nudge.

Edna's beautiful cards are Phyllis Harris stamps coloured over some dictionary pages. I didn't have any pages like that, so I decided to try colouring directly onto some MME patterned paper with my Prismacolor pencils. I used Face the Sunshine, also by Phyllis Harris.

*sigh*  Gotta love Phyllis Harris stamps!

It's a bit more subtle, but I still love it! I'll definitely have a go at this technique again!

Here's a list of all the DT girls Hip Hopping today - make sure you leave a comment on each blog as we'll be selecting three random commenter's to win a $20 Unity Stamp Co gift certificate!

Thanks for visiting!
