Joy To The World



It's RELEASE DAY! - Yes, there are new stamps from Annabelle Stamps

The set I'm showcasing today is Holly Branch. It's a wonderful set with several different Holly Branches, and some wonderful sentiments.

For my card I chose the Stamping 411 Sketch found here:

I started with a card base of Handsome Hunter then layered Textured Ruby Red cs with DP from (DCWV - Holiday Collection). I stamped the trio of Holly Branches with Palette Noir Black ink on Shimmery White cs and watercolored the leaves with Old Olive ink and an Aqua Painter. For the berries I used some of the new Mini Sprinkles available from AB Stamps (Chilli). I stamped the sentiment with Ruby Red ink and a Basic Black marker. I mounted this piece onto another piece of Handsome Hunter and added a strip of the DP - I also Distressed the edges of these two pieces. As a finishing touch I added a piece of plaid ribbon (JoAnn's) in the lower left corner.

Be sure to visit Andrea's Blog and then the new Annabelle Stamps Blog as there is CANDY available there that you don't want to miss out on.
