More La Blanche and Stampscapes

Hello everyone, hope you all had a good weekend. I want to say a big thank you to all you kind people who still come to visit, desipte me being unable to visit you. I really do appreciate it.

So just a couple of quick shares........"quick" seems to be my word of the moment, but the evil screen still plays havod with my eyes and balance......or it could be the other way round ? I rather think so, such is the nature of this illness.

The card above uses a number of Stampscape stamps onto a brayered and masked background and the card below is another of my samples for Sir Stampalot using the gorgeous new La Blanche stamps which I coloured with Copics and covered with a couple of coats of TH crackle glaze. DP is My Minds Eye and the flower made with TH tattered floral die

Two gorgeous cards Brenda - the outdoor scene is so beautiful, and I love the sentiment you've chosen. I saw the fabulous La Blanche stamps at the Harrogate craft fair last week and was almost tempted - now I wish I had given in to temptation!! Hope you have a happy week - Hugs, Sylvia xxx

Fliss said...

These are both gorgeous Brenda and I particularly like the way you've done the first one which looks stunning in a circle shape.
Sorry to hear how difficult everything is for you at the moment but it's lovely you can still craft.
Hugs, Fliss xx

This is wonderful! I love Stampscapes and you don't see a lot of people using them, so when I do I make sure to look! You did a great job with the old mill, I seem to have trouble with that stamp!

gorgeous "scenes" you've created here Brenda, really admire them, and feel I could pop through the screen into them much like in the movie Mary Poppins!

Enjoy the new week ahead, all the best to you!

I love the crackled rose card and for some reason it reminds me of the upcoming royal wedding.

Hi Brenda,great cards,I am so loving the leaves on the second card,very interesting,not sure what they're made of....... fantastic though! Sending you hugs,Julie.x

Paula said...

the sentiment on the first is so true & I love the brayered background. The second is delightful with those flowers & the way you've used the die-cuts to mimic the stamping.
Take care

Gorgeous cards. I especially love the scene on the first. I recently bought a set of stampscapes stamps, but I'm not yet happy with my creations. I'll have to have another go as I know they can look fab.

Two stunning cards, Brenda. I love the mill, think I may have to add that stamp to my collection. I do have the second one though, in fact I have all four in the set and love them. They remind me of holidays in sunny climes!! I love the way you've coloured it.
Hope you are doing OK.
Take care
Love Lisax

Beautiful cards Brenda, I've seen those LaBlanche stamps on three other blogs in the last week, one as far away as Slovenia! I was so surprised when I first read about your illness as my sister suffers with it too so I've seen it first hand. You still make beautiful cards despite everything and I really admire you for that. Have a great upcoming weekend. See you again at PB@Allsorts and Sir Stampalot in a few days!

Hugs
Brenda

Tracy said...

Two gorgeous creations Brenda, have to say the first one is truly amazing, and my mind boggles on how you build these scenes. Haven't seen these stampscape stamps before.
Happy crafting
