AnnaBelle stamps New Release Blog Hop ~ Day 2

Hi Guys,

I hope your enjoying your weekend!

Welcome to day 2 of AnnaBelle Stamps new release for October and if you here and hopped from the lovely Andrea's blog your hopping in the right direction lol!

so with out further ado, let me introduce you to our first stamp set that we will be previewing today...'Teresa's Numbers' and what a fun set this one is!!!

and here's my card I made using 'Teresa's Numbers'

I was going for a grungy looking sort of card, as I wanted to make it for my Nephew who will be turning 18 in a few weeks(feeling old now lol)and he loves that sort of look lol so I distressed and sponged around all the card stock layers and card base.

I stamped my '18' in some Brown ink on my Kraft panel randomly all over lol and I also stamped '18' on the Kraft smaller panel that is on the front of the card and my sentiment 'You Rock!' is from the 'Rockin' Instrumental' stamp set from AnnaBelle Stamps.

I finished off the card by wrapping some hemp twine around and by placing a Tim Holtz Muse Token that reads' Unique' hanging from the twine.

A very simple card to put together and I do love distressing and sponging and getting my fingers all inky roflol and I think(I hope lol)that my nephew will love his card, it's so him lol!

The next set is a BEAUTY and if you love using background and borders stamps, I think you will love this one lol, So let me introduce you to...'Backgrounds By Designs ~ Numbers'

and here's what I came up with using 'Backgrounds by Designs ~ Numbers' (sorry about the poor quality of photos, I think my camera is on it's last legs)

I thought I'll do something a little different so I decided to make some treat holders and I used the 'Numbers Border' and I stamped the border in Versamark ink and embossed the image in some AnnaBelle Stamps Hi Gloss Clear Embossing Powder and tied some Silver cord around my die cut.

I used the number '5' and the Star images from 'Teresa's Numbers' and randomly stamped them in some White ink onto my cello bags, filled my bags with some assorted lollies carefully trying not to taste test roflol and adhered my topper to the bag.

I kept my treat bags fairly simple as I'm going to give them to Connor and a few of his friends and you know kids, their more interested in the contents then the 'artistic' work roflol!!!

I so enjoyed playing with these sets and you can to by continuing the 'Blog Hop' and leaving your comments along the way!

So I'm going to send you off to Teresa's Blog and Teresa will have more stunning creations to share but don't forget to leave your comments along the way for your chance at winning today's preview sets, how cool is that?
