AnnaBelle Stamps New Release Blog Hop ~ Day 1

Hi Guys,

Welcome to day 1 of AnnaBelle Stamps New Release for December and if you 'hopped' from Andrea's wonderful blog then your 'hopping' in the right direction lol!

So let me introduce you to 'Stemmed Flowers'

Isn't this such a gorgeous set?

I do have to say that I LOVE this set and how you can match the flower heads with the stems to make lots of different combinations!

I have done something a little different this time around, instead of using all the images I have concentrated on just the one image and made different variations using that image and I made three cards, if time was on my side I think I could of ended up with a few more cards lol, so I took the large 'four stems' image and this is what I came up with:

Card 1:

For this card I stamped my 'stems' in some Kiwi Kiss ink onto my White panel and adhered it to my Pink panel and then adhered it onto my Kiwi Kiss card base using some 3D foam tape.

I used some buttons from my stash to make the flowers and on the top of my card I used some lovely Hot Pink Swiss Dots Ribbon from AnnaBelle Stamps and tied a little dragonfly charm using some Silver thread to finish off my card.

Card 2:

For this card I used one of my favourite colour combos, Brown and Pink lol! I stamped the four stems image onto my White panel using some Old Olive Ink, adhered it onto my pink panel then onto my Brown card base.

This time I used the Pink and Browns Petals Kits from AnnaBelle Stamps, choose the flowers I wanted and placed some of the gems that come in the kit in the flowers centers.

To finish off my card I paper pierced two of my corners for a little decoration.

Card 3:

For this card I used some Real Red and White card stock and once again stamped my stems in some Old Olive Ink.

For my flower heads I used some gorgeous AnnaBelle Stamps Heart Sprinkles in Chilli and I also used some White Satin Ribbon also from AnnaBelle Stamps and I made a bow(by cheating lol)using my ever trustful Bow Easy and I placed a ribbon in the center of my bow to finish off my card!

If time was still on my side I was going to make a card using the same 'four stem' image and making some of those gorgeous rolled roses for my flower heads, maybe next time lol!
