O Holy Night - Annabelle Holiday Preview 3

Welcome to the final preview of Annabelle's Holiday Stamps. 
Have you been enjoying the great stamp sets and cards that the Design Team have come up with so far.  I think you will be delighted with today's set as well.

This set:  Christmas Scene Baubles is quite different from the first two preview sets but is one that I'm sure you'll enjoy using over and over.  Isn't it lovely!

Do you want a chance to WIN this set! - Here's what you need to do:  Visit the Annabelle Blog where the Hop Starts and follow the links from blog to blog till you get to our Guest Designer's Blog and then head back to the AB blog and leave a comment saying you've completed the hop.  You must leave a comment though on each of the DT members blogs to be eligible to win this set.  You should have arrived on my blog from Sue's blog  -  Your next stop will be Rene's Blog so hop on over and see the wonderful card she's made.


For my card I wanted a more serene feel and something that reflects my faith in God so I chose to use two of the Nativity Images from the set.  What's great about this set is that the words/scenes all fit inside the Ornaments (or Baubles) so you can "mix and match"    My card base is Always Artichoke layered with Whisper White embossed with the Swiss Dot Embossing Folder.  The Designer Paper is an old retired SU pattern (Wintergreen). I used Soft Sky and Certainly Celery ink to stamp my Ornament's and the Nativity Scenes. Then I cut them out and embossed the hanger thread with Detail Silver EP and added some Silver Cording for the bows and Silver Sprinkles at the bottom.
The Sentiments were stamped with Always Artichoke Ink and punched out with the Word Window Punch.

That's it for this Preview and we hope you've enjoyed all the great stamp sets which will be available after today on the Annabelle Store
