AnnaBelle Stamp New Release~Preview Day 1

Hi Guys,

Welcome to Day 1 of AnnaBelle Stamps New Release!

I'm excited to show you the first set of AnnaBelle Stamps new Stamp release and today's set is Perfect for your Male cards, let me introduce you to...
'Tree-MEN-dous'!(insert round of applause and cheers lol)

I love the 'Happy Father's Day' border Sentiment and Andrea has designed it to fit the whole length of your card, how cool is that!

So here's my sample using 'Tree-MEN-dous'

~I used Kraft, Brown and Artichoke card stock(love this colour combo for Male cards lol)and used Versamark and Brown ink.

~I have used a paper distresser on all my layers of card stock, including my circle layers and I have used distress inks around the edges of my card stock and circle layers for a aged look, but it doesn't show in the photo to well lol!

~I used the 'Happy Father's Day' border sentiment stamp on the top and bottom of my card with some Versamark and heat embossed using some Clear embossing powder and my heat gun.

~Using the 'Happy Father's Day' Button Stamp, I stamp this onto my Kraft Circle using Brown ink and layered this onto my Artichoke and Brown circle layers and punches the four holes out and thread some twine in the middle.

~For some embellishment I used AnnaBelle Stamps Satin Ribbon in Tuftan and some Natural coloured twill that I found in my stash lol and tied it to the side using some twine.

~I finished off my card by placing my 'Button' sentiment over the top of my ribbons using some 3D dimensional foam.

I also made a matching pillow box using a Sizzix die and a piece of acetate and used the same coloured card stock, stamps and embellishments that I used on my card and placed some yummy Cashews into the pillow box(well more went into my tummy than the pillow box roflol)

Now for some GREAT news,
