June Release for Annabelle Stamps

Hello all,

It's been a busy week on this little blog..... well that's if all my posts went to plan.
Walshie and I will be leaving Washington tomorrow heading for San Francisco before heading back to Sydney....hope the weather is better than it was when we left and the house hasn't been washed away!

Today's the day  all the new Annabelle Stamps go on sale. If you've seen some that you would like go check out the Annabelle Stamp blog to see what deals Andrea has for you. 

I have a couple of cards to share today the first is a CAS card featuring 'Tree-MEN-dous'.  This stamp is perfect for male cards but not restricted to them.  Here I've distressed my card base before adding a piece of brown double faced satin ribbon from the Brown Petals Kit.
The image is stamped onto another piece of pure white card using SU chocolate chip and kiwi kiss ink. I've rounded opposite corners  before attaching to the card base with foam tabs.  
One of the sentiments from the set was stamped and cut out using a Spellbinder die.  This tag is attached with a Copper swirl to finish this quick and simple card.

My second card uses 'Floral Silhouettes', if you remember I mentioned that this set would be a great one for those last minute cards.  Here I've used VersaMark ink and Annabelle's white embossing powder to stamp one of the floral images to maroon card.  I've framed the image with a white scalloped frame cut with a Spellbinder die.

The pure white base card has the inside page punched with a Fiskar's Upper crest punch. 
On the front of the card I've used one of the small accent stamps to create a background for the top section. The bottom has a polka dot patterned dp from Webster's Pages and between the two I've used a die to cut the large scalloped strip from the plain maroon American Craft Card. Softly rubbing this with an emery board after running it through the Cuttlebug with a Swiss dots embossing folder.
The image has been attached with foam tabs and to add a little softness to this card I added the lace tie and 5 assorted Cocoa Metalic's.
No sentiment as yet  but when I need to there are five to choose from  with this little set and I could add a tag to the lace or just stamp one inside.

Thanks for stopping by again today. Hope you like these two cards and can be tempted to add to your collection.

I have a couple more posts scheduled before we get home so hope you pop past for these.
Till then, take care..............

Hiya.................... got onto this silly little notebook again!! Will be travelling with my laptop in future!!!
We've enjoyed our stay in Washington....It's been really hot here and have to say we are both looking like we've been sitting on the beach instead of walking miles and riding in open top double decker busses.
So much to see and we've just scratched the surface but the locals are great and we've had some laughs....We don't think we sound funny!!!!
Flying over to San Fran. tomorrow so another travel day, but looking forward to our last four days and maybe some shopping .... there is a little bit of space in the suitecase....not much!!!  xxx

Both cards well worth popping into visit . There is something about white on white that appeals to me so I fav the first card . And you are right the Tree image has universal appeal , I think .
