Friday Feature – AnnaBelle Stamps New Release Blog Hop

Posted by on January 18, 2013 in Annabelle Stamps | 56 comments

Hello and welcome to the new stamp release blog hop for AnnaBelle Stamps. You should have arrived from the very sweet Kylie’s blog.

Today, two new stamp sets are being released along with some new gingham ribbons! First up the new stamp sets – Designer Flower and Standing Tall.

I had so much fun playing with these new sets, I made four cards. The first two are almost identical, I just used different mediums. Prisma colour pencils on the first one and Distress Stains on the second.

And for the next two, I white heat embossed again, and added subtle shading with Copic Markers.

I used a teeny tiny little bit of the new Licorice gingham ribbon on the last card. Here are all the new gingham ribbons coming into the store.
