Because I Love You

Happy Friday! So happy that this week is almost over. I am really looking forward to the weekend, how about you?

Before I show you this week's challenge from AnnaBelle Stamps I would like to announce our new social site called Stamp Embellish Create!  We hope you will love to come and visit...often! We'll start a new regular Tuesday feature from next week! We'll include all sorts of things like tutorials, hints, cards start to finish, and anything we can fit in! We want to build a community of shared ideas and a catalogue of answers to anything "How to..." in the stamping world, and with your help I know we can!
You can set up your very own page and customise it how you like. Add your photos (any crafty photos using any products - not restricted to ABS) and share them with others.
Sign up today! Invite your friends! Membership is free, so why not!!

And here is the AnnaBelle Stamps challenge for this week:

I have been making so many cards with white bases lately which was getting kind of same-y, so I went for red this time around.

I love red and white for Valentine's Day/love themed cards don't you? For this card I used a 4x3 red Bazzill cardbase upon which I stamped a sentiment and a heart (repeated three times) from the Love Birds set by AnnaBelle Stamps with Versamark ink and then embossed with Ultra Fine White embossing powder from Hero Arts.

And that's it. So easy!

I hope you get time to play along with us this week, and if you need inspiration why not take a look at what the other Belles have created:

  • We would love you to use AnnaBelle Stamps and embellishments, but you can play along without using them, it’s all about sharing ideas :)


  1. Love your card Jess. Nice idea to change up your card bass to red - I should try it as well as I always reach for white! Very cute!

  2. Super funky CAS design Jess! I'm the same I tend to gravitate to 'white'... I must branch out myself. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Love the use of a red base Jess, I tend to use white also, nice to have a change :O) Viv xx

  4. Yep I'm with everyone else... the red base is creative genius! Love it!

  5. A fabulous CAS design, Jess! I love the way your white sentiment pops against the red card base!

  6. Hi Jess, Thanks so much for stopping by and the kind comment. Oh how I wish I could create CAS cards - they are so elegant! Love the red card base and white hearts. "Hugs"


Thankyou for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate each and every one I receive!
