Final Feb. Release - AnnaBelle Stamps

Hi, Did you all enjoy the HOP yesterday? - Well get prepared to hop again today as the AnnaBelle DT shows you samples using Backgrounds By Design 3. This is a fun set to use and you have a chance to win this by following the blog hop.
Yesterday there were a few little "glitches" along the way so hopefully today everything is up and running smoothly.

Card 1 - For this card I used one of the background stamps and one of the tiny "icon" stamps in the set to create my background.
Next I used yesterday's (Easter Hope) set to create the focal image.
This card is a CAS (Clean and Simple) design. I find them hard to do but I think it turned out okay.
Card Stock: Tangerine Tango,Pear Pizzaz, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.
Ink: Only Orange, Certainly Celery, Memento Tuxedo Black.
Other: Circle Dies, Punch-EK Success, Swiss Dot Embossing Folder, Corner Rounder Punch and Foam Mounting Tape.

I had a hard time getting a decent photograph of this card. Must be the dreary rainy day we're having.

Card 2 - Another fairly CAS design but oh so fun and cute.
I stamped the border on Old Olive card stock with Old Olive Ink. Then I stamped the same border on some lavender textured card stock with Lovely Lilac ink and die cut the flowers (MFT). I also used Molly (Lil Belles) and colored her with Copic markers. I added some Olive grosgrain ribbon and Olive Sprinkles to complete the card. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

So did you start the hop on the AnnaBelle Blog?

You should have arrived on my blog from Chupa's blog and then will head over to Jerusha's blog from here. Be sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to win this set.

Hope you have enjoyed the release as much as I did creating for it.

So let's get hopping:Belles
