Annabelle New Release Blog Hop!


Look at all those beautiful sets!!! 
I have already sneaked a couple of the sets (you can see Timeless here and Butterfly Sunshine here) and today I'm sharing projects with Backgrounds By Design 8 and Splat Attack... Lots of fun!!


First, a card with BBD8: 

I absolutely LOVE banners so I had to use the banner stamps in the set. I stamped them in Versamark onto the red, orange and yellow cardstock, and embossed with white embossing powder. Then, I layered them on the patterned paper (it wasn't my idea, the original paper has some banners on it, I just covered them up! Smart, eh??) and sewed them in place. Then the sentiment was stamped (don't you love that funky font?) and I added some sequins to fill up some of the "white space." 


Next, a couple cards with Splat Attack. They both use the same formula which yielded some cool results: 


Ombre green... I am really into making my own backgrounds lately so I took the single chevron stamp in the set and repeated it in a bunch of different green inks. The sentiment is cool because COLOUR (or COLOR if you're American) is a separate stamp, so you can coordinate it with your card! 


My lips didn't end up being ombre as much as just a bunch of different shades of red and pink - but it did the trick! I had to explain what "Mwah!" meant to my husband... MEN! The bright red lip next to the sentiment was embossed with red embossing powder. In real life it's super glossy!!
