Final July Preview

Hello,  Well here we are at the end of our July previews for the new Annabelle Stamps.  Today we are introducing:  Take the Cake.  What a fun and yummy set this one is.  You'll want to add this to your stamp collection for sure.

For my card  I decided to showcase the presents but didn't really feel like I wanted to color them so I chose to stamp each present with a different color to compliment the Designer Paper.

My card base is:  Bermuda Bay layered with DP from WeRMemoryKeepers (Flower Patch) line. The colorful striped pattern is also from this line.  I added a punched border (MS-Optic Dot) of Real Red cs.  The presents were stamped on Whisper White cs using, Real Red, Crushed Curry and Kiwi Kiss ink.  I mounted them on Tangerine Tango cs.  I punched out the side of th top present and added my sentiment on Crushed Curry cs.  Then I added 2 Chili Sprinkles and a Lime sprinkle.  The cake panel and present are raised using foam dimensional tape.

I chose to use TESC119 sketch for my card. So do you want a chance to win this set...YES,  Well then start hopping to each of the DT members blogs and leave a comment on each one for your chance to win this great set.  Here are the blogs to visit:
