Playing With New Toys


Hello. I have not been blogging or commenting much lately as I am busy with other things including making Christmas Cards for my Mother to send. I spent the past 2 days making 30 cards for her. I used a photo of  a Christmas quilted wall hanging that she had made for the front of the card. I always try to personalize her card in same way. Now to make a box, print her address labels, and buy stamps and that gift to her will be finished. I'll post the card at a later time.
I just had to take time and make a card for Annabelle Blog Challenge...see the sketch above....with the items that I received yesterday from Australia. It was a purchase of stamps and dies that I made using a Annabelle GC that I won.
I used the new Borders 1  die to make the cut out design in Bazzill Pink CS and layered this on to the green card base. I then added the Stripe Paper from Cloud Design to create the triangle side. I cut an ornament from Green CS using Annabelle's Decorated Christmas Die and embossed it with the Border Die. Love that effect... so easy to add a design. Added some Pink Rhinestones and Metallic Gold thread string and bow.  Finished with the sentiment stamped in Memento Bamboo Leaves using Annabelle Bella Stamps and Cuts by Design Die all from Decorated Christmas Sets.  Papers from stash and Jo-ann's.  I am going to have such fun with my new items....have so many ideas from Annabelle Blog Hop happening now.
