AnnaBelle Stamps - August Preview - Hold A Candle


Last day of the August previews....... hope you've enjoyed what you've seen so far.

Today the design team are showing projects made with 'Hold A Candle'.   I've a couple of cards to show, the first is a card I made with a male in mind.



I've used Kraft and black card with some gold for the embossed image and sentiment.
ABS gold embossing powder was used for the candle and I've wrapped some gold thread around the Swiss dots embossed black card.  ABS gems from the Brown Petals Kit also feature on this card.




My second card uses the balloons image  to make a colourful Birthday card.  I stamped one 'wayward'  t balloon a second time, cut it out and popped it up on foam over a strip of dp.
Silver metallic sprinkles from ABS add the necessary bling to this card.

That's it for August ..... you can place your orders from today. Don't forget the deal this month will be 'Purchase all three new sets and receive a Petals Kit (your choice of colour)"  This offer will run from the last preview day - 19th August (today) through to Sunday 22nd August.

All you need to do is visit each of the design teams blogs, listed below.

                    Sue      (that's me)


Tomorrow is AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge Friday, so I'll be back with a card to share.

Ian has his first post op physio today so we're off to the hospital again!!  He's getting better at managing with one arm out of action but is so looking forward to being able to lie down to sleep.  

Till Friday.........
