AnnaBelle Stamps - Lil Monster Gone Fishing

Welcome to my New Release post for AnnaBelle Stamps blog! If you've arrived here from Sue K's blog, then you are on the right track, if not then please start at the ABS blog.

The stamp set I am showing today is the mini-set lbs005 'Lil Monster Gone Fishing'. The first card I'm showing you is the one that I gave the sneak peek of on Sunday. I coloured the image using Prismacolor pencils and odourless mineral spirits. I added some Dimensional Magic to Lil Monsters eyes and tooth, you can see this better in the close-up photo. The small heart is from the ABS 'Hoo Loves Christmas' stamp set, I've popped it up on dimensional dots. The papers I used are from Crate Paper's Restoration Collection 6 x 6 paper pad, I sewed around the edges of the large background piece and distressed the edges. The black and white striped ribbon is also from AnnaBelle Stamps and I've wrapped it around a piece of Core'dinations Black Magic Potion No.9 cardstock, which I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and sanded back to reveal the teal coloured core. The cardstock is Black Pedigree Paper and 'Taken With Teal' Stampin' Up.




For my second card, I coloured Lil Monster with Copic Markers. The patterned papers are by Kaisercraft, I used both sides of a sheet called Fun Fair Ringmaster. The orange strips that I sewed along the edges is twisted paper cord, which is also available from AnnaBelle Stamps. The cardstock is all by Stampin' Up, I've popped the sentiment up on dimensional dots and added a button tied with a single strand of the twisted paper cord.






How the Hop works :




You will need to begin at the ABS blog if you haven't already, and follow the links to each of the DT blogs. Leave a comment on each as you go and you will end up back at the ABS blog where you can add your name to the Inlinkz widget.

The names of the winners will be posted on the AnnaBelle Stamps blog on the 17th March.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks
