Congratulations + Exciting news!

I've been keeping this piece of news under my hat for a while but I'm so glad that I can tell you now - I consider myself very honoured to have been asked by Andrea to join the AnnaBelle Stamps design team!

So this is my first post as a member of the AnnaBelle Stamps DT and I'm showing a sneak peek of a set that will be released later this month as well as playing along with this week's challenge...

AnnaBelle Stamps Blog

I stamped the largest heart using Versacolor 'Silver' ink on grey Bazzill cardstock to add some shine and texture and embossed the smaller heart with Hero Arts embossing powder (ultra fine) in White on the same grey bazzil cardstock. Cut both hearts out with scissors.

I adhered both hearts to the front of a 3.5" x 3.5" white card, popping the smaller heart up on a foam dot for some dimension. I stamped the sentiment using Versafine 'Onyx Black' ink. Since the sentiment is just one word I thought I would play along with the Less Is More 'Just One Word' challenge this week.

So that's it from me! I hope you've enjoyed taking a peek at one of the new sets which will be released on the 14th of January on the AnnaBelle Stamps blog. Click through to the blog now to see what the other DT Belle's have created - you will not be disappointed!

Oh and before I forget - the AnnaBelle Stamps 12 Days of Christmas sale ends today (6th of Jan) so hurry to the shop to get 20% off stamps and sprinkles.

Take care!
