AnnaBelle Stamps New Release For August~Preview Day 1

Hi Guys,

I hope your all well and your weekend is going great!

Welcome and thank you for stopping by today to see day 1 of AnnaBelle Stamps New Release for August and what a lovely set this one is.
So let me introduce you to...'Thoughtful Stems'

It's such a lovely set and I love the wheat image as you will see lol!

So here's my cards using the 'Thoughtful Stems' Stamp Set:

For this card I distressed the edges of my card stock and used 'Old Paper' distress ink around the edges.
I stamped my wheat image with versamark onto a piece of Kraft Card Stock and embossed it with AnnaBelle Stamps Ebony Embossing powder.
I also used some Jute String(my favourite thing at the moment lol)around my embossed image and around my card.
To finish off I place some yummy 4mm Toffee Sprinkles and paper pierced the top left and bottom right hand side corners.

Here's my next card:

For this card I also used the wheat image and stamped it onto a piece of Kraft Card Stock and this time I embossed it in the most gorgeous Copper Embossing Powder also from AnnaBelle Stamps.
It's a gorgeous embossing powder to work with and you can see the lovely specks of copper through out the powder, just gorgeous!
I wanted to keep this card simple to highlight the gorgeous Copper embossing so I used some more of my favourite Jute String lol and some yummy Tan Satin Ribbon also available from AnnaBelle Stamps.

Here's another card I made using the 'Thoughtful Stems' Stamp Set:

I used the pretty flower image for this card and coloured the flowers with my copics and placed some dainty 4mm Blossom Sprinkles from AnnaBelle Stamps in my flower centers.
I punched out two white tags and stamped 'With' on one tag and 'love' on the other and I also placed a Blossom Heart Sprinkle on the love tag.
I finished off my card by tieing some White Satin Ribbon from AnnaBelle Stamps into a knot and I used a little bit of white floss to tie my tags and thread through my buttons.
The Black, Kraft, Brown, Blue and Pink Card Stock is from SU! and the stripped pattern was a tiny scrap piece I found in my stash lol!
