Hi all! It's been a while since I posted on my blog and it just seems that each day s getting a little busier, but I wanted to share a card from my Topical Tuesday post on the AnnaBelle blog yesterday in case you missed it :)
I have to admit I got very inky with lots of different mediums, but had lots of fun! It was a last minute thing, so what I had in my mind had to just evolve as I went! I would have preferred to make something and then repeated it for the camera, but sometimes that just doesn't happen, so when I did the little mountains first up I had coloured them with Gelatos and then changed my mind by the end of the video lol!
If you liked to catch up on the video you can find it on the AnnaBelle channel HERE or the ABS blog HERE!
Thanks for stopping by :)

Here we are with brand new setts and brand new digi's!! If you have just come from the ABS blog then you would've seen the great new sets and Printable Pages now available in the AnnaBelle store, and I hope you love them as much as I did creating them!
I'll start with a Christmas card, because it's always good to get those out of the way early! I kept it very simple with white on white as my colour scheme!
The Printable Pages make it very easy to put a card together! Because they are laid out on an A4 sheet you simply print, cut in to 4 and then trim again if you like an edge and paste to a card base. I stitched mine for a change and coloured with Copics!
This card uses the Scribble Scrabble 2 set. You can just make out the edged pattern from one of the images. I was going to use this image to create a large candle but ran out of time, but I can see it even if I haven't done it yet lol!
And lastly Scribble Scrabble 1. I used the different circle sizes to create the dotted background.
It's time to move on to Sue's blog who will have something amazing to share with us!
Hugs for now everyone,

Hi all! Gee it's been a while since I posted here hasn't it, but I have been posting on the ABS blog so does that count??
It's time for a new release and this month we have a bit of a mix with some clear sets, and something new, but I'll share all the details Friday!
Tonight I have a card and some gift tags ready for Christmas! I didn't have a punch that was strong enough to go through the very thick metallic card on the tags, but I have one coming in the mail!!
I'm afraid I had to take the photos tonight and they haven't turned out very well...I really need to do it during the day for my camera!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out Kylie, Therese and Tobi for further teasers tonight! We have another day of Sneak Peeks coming up tomorrow so I hope to see you then!
Hugs for now,

Be sure to let your friends know about our hop and ask them to play along as well, you might be lucky enough to each win and then you can share lol!
Here are my cards tonight using BBD8 and Splat Attack!
Very simply stamped with three different shades of pink and purple and using one of the large bold sentiments in black. The Sprinkles are 3mm Licorice and the sides of my base card were coloured by swiping the matching ink pad directly to the paper!
My base card was once again coloured by applying the ink pad directly to the paper and then I stamped one of the new background images around the edge.
Thanks for stopping by! Let's go and see what Sue has created to share with us tonight!!

Welcome to Day3 of AnnaBelle Stamps new release Sneak Peeks! I've gone from a masculine set on Monday to a very feminine one in Butterfly Sunshine!
I have used the same sentiment as I did on Monday as I had a 21st last weekend and it just suited what I needed! I didn't use a flash in the photo, but I had the lamps a little too close and the white EP is looking a little glarey!
I stamped by butterflies on vellum with Versamark and heat set with White Opaque EP. I coloured on the reverse side with pencils and blended the colour with mineral spirits and paper stump.
My background was created by first laying down DI Evergreen Bough directly to the cut piece of card. I then stamped a small image from tomorrow nights sneak peek (sshhhh don't tell) by spraying some water on to an acrylic block and 'inking' my stamp with water. It gave me the bleached out water splatter look in a more controlled fashion :)
I stamped an image from Garden Silhouette with Pine Needles and then distressed the edges. The Sprinkles are a secret, but they just suited the card so I had to use them lol!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my sneak peek! Be sure to pop by the other Belles blogs who are sharing tonight as well as out Guest Belle for August, Laurie from Soapbox Creations!
Hugs for now,

Hi and welcome to day 1 of our sneak peeks! We have some teasers for you in the lead up to the release this Friday night, so we hope you'll stay tuned!
Our first new set is called Timeless and it's going to be perfect for masculine projects!
I think I'll put this aside for Justin in a couple of months! It will be great to be organised for once lol!
One background stamp I can't tell you about yet but the other is from BBD3! I've used Distress Inks Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, and Faded Jeans. The twine is our Natural 0.8mm hemp twine.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to check out the other Belles sharing some teasers with you tonight!
Hugs for now,

Back again! Wow this is a surprise for me, but it's time to share our Friday Feature stamp set - Remember When.. This is like a little recap of a set we released just a couple of weeks ago, and one that is wonderful to colour!
I decided to follow the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch once again but changed it up to my card from this morning.
I started by colouring my image with Copics then finished shading with pencils. The background has been airbrushed on with Copics then edges distressed with DI Frayed Burlap. A touch of added twine and a little tag made from scrap and a circle punch :)
I hope you enjoy re-visiting this set with the Belles this week, and if you didn't purchase this set when it was released then you can pick it up at 20% off for this weekend!
Have a great weekend everyone and I hope to see you again soon :)
Hugs for now,
