AnnaBelle Stamps New Release

Welcome to the very last release for the year from AnnaBelle Stamps.  It's called Backgrounds by Design 2, and here it is:

As usual with our new releases, we have a blog hop around the blogs of the design team members, so if you'd like to start at the very beginning, you'll need to pop over to the AnnaBelle Stamps blog now.

I have wanted a border/background stamp like the one on the very left for the longest time!  Here's what I did with it:

I added some Lagoon Sprinkles to some of the dots - it's such a bright and fresh look. The Lagoon Sprinkles were a perfect match for my Teal StazOn ink.  Here's a close up:

The words are from the Branch Out set.

I couldn't stop at just one card this time, so here's a very different look for my second card:

A little bit Gothic, isn't it? I embossed the border and words for extra pop with clear embossing powder. The border punched on the bottom was done with a Martha Stewart punch, and I stitched around the top with my sewing machine.Here's a close up:

 See the shine? Woo!

The words came from one of AnnaBelle Stamps very early sets called Holly Branch.  The vintage font was perfect for this card.

This set as well as the one we previewed on Wednesday will be available for purchase from today in the shop.

Thanks for stopping by, and for any comments you care to leave.  Ooh - just a reminder to leave comments as you hop around the design team blogs - you could win this new set.  The next stop on the hop is Sue.
