Annabelle Stamps New Release Preview

Here we are, and we are so excited to show you the first set for this month!  Named Tree-MEN-dous it is a set for the men in our lives.

Here in Australia we don't celebrate Father's Day until September, but this set is about more than just Father's Day, and is perfect for so many other occasions.

Now folks you can be in with a chance to win this set.
To win you need to find the DT blog that has a 'sneak peek' of the next set we'll be showing you on the 24th.  Find the blog then come back here and add the name of the DT member in a comment.  A random winner will be selected and announced on the 24th!.
You will find the Design Team names listed under the Annabelle Stamps Blog logo on the right hand side of this page. 
How easy is that?

 Here is my card, I have used 6 stamps from the set, 
On the brown background card, I stamped 'tiny' DAD, 'large' DAD and single leaf with versamark ink. To do this quick and easy I put all 3 stamps on one acrylic block
For the tree I pulled out my trusty old colorbox pigment inks in brown and moss green and I embossed. Don't fall off your chair, I know it's been a long time since I embossed anything but it looks really good, I should do it more often. I then coloured over the leaves with chalk pastels. (YES long time since I used those as well)
As it is a masculine card  you can't tizzy it up like you can for women so I just embellished with some eyelets (I know long time too, LOL)

Until Next Time
Inking of you
