Branch Out - Annabelle Stamps July Release - Day 2

DAY 2 FOR ANNABELLE STAMPS JULY PREVIEW  and 'Branch Out' is in the spotlight today.
Don't forget you can win a copy of this set all the details are at the end of this post.

Seven images, one edge/border stamp and 9 sentiments make up the set.  It was easy to get a little carried away with so much to choose from.  I have three cards to share today so I'll try to keep this short and sweet.

Card 1:

1. Stamp the branch in kiwi kiss ink onto a piece of textured white card.
2. Using a Fiskars punch, punch the bottom edge of some kiwi kiss card and attach the stamped image over this.
3.  Cut a strip of 3/4 " white card and wrap the green ribbon around this before attaching to the card base.  Tie a bow and attach this over the ribbon strip with a glue dot.
4. Using foam tape attach the image to the card base.
5. Add the three sizes of Annabelle Pearls to the top of the card.



Card 2:

For this card I've used one of the sentiments from Branch Out and the smallest image.  
I cut back my normal 4.25 x 5.5" card base to give me just 1.5" on the front and I punched a lace edge.   Adding the  peach pearlescent card under the lace flap.

1.  Randomly stamp the image over the peach card using SU apricot appeal ink.  Round the bottom corners.
2. Add some Annabelle white double faced satin ribbon around the lace punched card before attaching the peach card with double sided tape.
3. Stamp the sentiment in SU chocolate chip ink onto PL pure white card. Cut using a Spellbinder scalloped die.
4. Stamp one more image to the top of the oval and add three Peach Sprinkles.
5. Attach the oval to the card base with foam tape.
6. Tie a bow in the white satin ribbon and attach over the ribbon strip with a glue dot.

Card 3:

My last card is a little 4" square card, again quite simple using another of the petal images and a sentiment.            

1.  Stamp the image twice onto PL pure white card using antique linen distress ink. Cut around the petals on one and colour with Copics.              2. Using a Spellbinder label die cut the full image out and emboss. Using a foam dot add the coloured petals over the stamped image and add three Toffee Sprinkles.                                   3. To the card base add a layer of SU dp.
4.  Punch a lace strip from some PL  pure white card and add the Annabelle Lime Juice  Tuftan ribbon before attaching to the card base.
5. Stamp the sentiment onto the dp in chocolate chip ink. (I stamped it twice to give a slight shadow.)
6.Add a row of Toffee Sprinkles to complete the card.
