AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Hop - All Things Grow

Hi everyone,
Its time for another AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Patti's blog. If not, begin your hop over at the AnnaBelle Stamps blog to start and see all the gorgeous creations! This fortnight we are showcasing All Things Grow:

This is a really beautiful set to work with, so I really had fun experimenting with this card (and my new camera!!):

I started by scoring a line across my main panel and then stamping one of the images repeatedly with Crumb Cake ink. I then stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Versamark and Tuxedo Black ink and heat embossed with clear powder. Beside this I stamped one of the butterfly images in Real Red ink and carefully used my craft knife to cut along one side of his wings to give them a little lift. I sprinkled some glitter along the wings and also on the edge of the cut section. This panel was finished off by adding some more glitter with Scor Tape just below my scored line and then I matted it on to some True Black cardstock. I wrapped some red AnnaBelle ribbon around my cream card base twice and then adhered my main panel on top.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from All Things Grow in Tuxedo Black ink and added a strip of ribbon and a line of glitter along the bottom, before mattiing on some more True Black cardstock. Finally I stamped the same butterfly in Crumb Cake ink, adhering this to my ribbon with Scor Tape.

Below are the details of this week's blog hop and make sure you  finish by hopping over to the AnnaBelle Stamps blog.
