Annabelle Stamps Birthday Celebration

Annabelle Stamps is celebrating its second birthday with three fun challenges and some great prizes. You can check out all the info here.

The first challenge has three parts. Use a new stamp, use die cuts or punched shapes and use bling.

I used Annabelles All Squared stamp set, which is brand new (for me) and I used a circle punch for my hearts and a little bit of bling.

I stamped the hearts with dye ink and covered them with glossy accents for some nice shine and added ribbon in co-ordinating colours.

The second challenge is to make a card using blooms or flowers and once again I used the All Squared stamp set.

The flowers are stamped in black on watercolour paper that I coloured with Twinkling H2Os. I used a second generation stamping slightly offset of the first stamped image to give the flowers some depth and movement and the background stamp is from Hero Arts and can be found here.

Well I'm off to find out what the third challenge is. Thanks for stopping by!
