AnnaBelle Stamps New Release Blog Hop

Hi Guys,

I hope your all well and enjoying your week!

Welcome to day 2 of AnnaBelle Stamps New Release Blog Hop for February and if you 'hopped' from Sue W's Gorgeous Blog then your hopping in the right direction lol and weren't Sue's creations Stunning? So with out further ado...
let me introduce to you...'Background By Designs 3'

This is our third in the series of Background By Designs Stamp Sets and what an AWESOME one this one is, LOVE these Background/Border Stamps!

So here's my first card using 'Background By Designs 3'

For this card I have used the 'Dotty' Border image and stamped the image using some Chocolate Chip ink onto my Very Vanilla cardstock panel, which has been matted onto a piece of Orange Bazzill cardstock then onto another piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, again onto the Orange Bazzill cardstock, then I have placed these panels on to another piece of Very vanilla cardstock using some 3D foam mounting tape.

My sentiment reads 'Birthday Wishes' which come from AnnaBelle Stamps 'Flowers With Love' Stamp Set and I have stamp the sentiment in some Chocolate Chip Ink onto a punched out Very vanilla Circle then layered onto a Orange Bazzill Scallop Circle Punch out and adhered onto my card using 3D foam.

I embellished my card by using some gorgeous 6mm Pumpkin Sprinkles onto some random larger dots, I used some yummy 38mm striped Tangerine Ribbon that I have wrapped around my card and tied off to the side using some Chocolate Twisted Paper Cord.

To finish off my card, I placed a Brown Flower from the Brown Petals Pack near my sentiment and placed a Pumpkin Sprinkle in the center!

Here's my second card:

For this card I just had to use my favorite colour combo, Brown and Pink and I will try and promise not to use it for awhile lol!

I stamped the 'Stitched' image onto my Pink panel using some Versamark ink for a soft background and I also stamped the same image onto my Pink panel using some Early Espresso Ink and placed this panel on top of my scallop border.

I used AnnaBelle Stamps 'Flourishes' Stamp Set and used one of the flourish images and stamped it onto my Pink cardstock using some Early Espresso Ink and I placed some 3mm Cocoa Sprinkles onto the dotty guide.

I found the flower in my stash and I think it could be a Prima flower and thought it was a different looking flower with the feathers and I thought it went well with my colours lol!

To finish off my card I stamped my sentiment which reads 'Happy Birthday' which comes from Annabelle Stamps 'Branch out' Stamp Set and stamp the sentiment in some Early Espresso Ink onto a scrap piece of cardstock and punched out my sentiment using a word window punch and adhered it to my card using some 3D foam and I also placed a Cocoa Sprinkle on either side of my sentiment!
