Say it with... No DP

Hello all. Welcome back to my blog. It has been quite a busy week for me, posting wise as well as all the other things going on!!

So our challenge over at Annabelle Stamps this week is to create a card with no Designer Paper (or Patterned Paper as we call it here in SA).

I actually had so much fun with this challenge. I even created 2 projects!! First up is a card:

I used the "Hooo Loves Christmas?" set for the owl image and the "Floral Silhouettes" set for the sentiment.

My second project is a tag, and is slightly Jennifer McGuire inspired. I have had a Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink in my stash for years, and have never used it!! After viewing Jennifer's latest Holiday Thinking Inking video I thought I would play a bit. Here is what I came up with:

I used the stunning "Sentimental Bluebells" set for this tag and some lovely green Sprinkles.

I hope you have enjoyed your time here at my blog, and that I have given you some ideas. All of the lovely stamp sets I have used on my projects are available from Annabelle Stamps, why not go and have a browse around??

I hope you will play along with us. Once you have created your card link it at the Annabelle Blog. We have a wonderful new person joining our DT, check out the Annabelle Blog for the details.

I am off down the coast for the weekend, so I will see you back here next week xx
