World Cardmaking Day with Annabelle Stamps!

If you are coming from the Paper Crafts Blog tour, welcome!! So exciting to have over 300 blogs participating and celebrating the cards we create! I am posting this a bit early, as Saturday is the office World Cardmaking Day!

and to show just how global stamping is, let's have an international twist using an Australian Stamp Company, Annabelle Stamps!

Today we celebrate all we love about card making, and I love new stamps!

Today's card uses the set Swirl Tree from Annabelle Stamps. There are many 16 stamps this set, and I chose to hang stars from the tree. I stamped the tree using Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah White, then colored with prismacolor pencils, and blended with OMS. I stamped the stars on another scrap piece, colored with a yellow AtyouSpica pen, cut out and mounted on the tree using dimensionals.

There are also several sentiments in the set, so I chose one for the inside and added a star as well!

Hope you have something fun planned for today to celebrate! Make a card !!
