A bit of Stamp Addict inkiness


Using Waiting for the Storm, Poppy, Music and Etched Flourish stamps, Dylusions, and Tonic Punch and Stamp Carnation

First of all welcome to my lovely new followers, I am so pleased you decided to join my inky journey, you are most welcome here. For those of you looking for the Allsorts Blog Hop, please click here.

Well what I can I say because about the weekend, wasn't it wonderful weather here in the UK ? Two Bank holidays on the trot now has to be some kind of record, needless to say the promised rain has arrived this morning but it's a softer blow after three nice days.

I will be quick and to the point and give you a quick reminder that Sarah and Vicky will be the screen at 2pm today on Create and Craft with a new Stamp Addicts show and here are a couple more of the samples I made for the programme.

Using Waiting for the Storm stamp, Dylusions and mask and Tonic Punch and Stamp Peruvian Lily set

Have a good week everyone and will catch up with you all very shortly.

I particularly like that second one & love how you've shown two different ways of using the wording. The little patches of pink are very eye-catching in the first too.
We've got some much needed rain today but I agree the two Bank Holidays have been quite spectacular.

Beautiful cards Brenda, the flowers on both really caught my eye. You definitely have a talent for making those flowers so realistically.

Gorgeous, gorgeous cards, Brenda! I love them both! Might have to buy that sentiment - love it! Unfortunately I missed the show. Ended up taking my Dad to get some shoes that will fit him. Hope you got lots of mentions. I think dylusions are top of my list for Doncaster after seeing these beauties!

We had Friday-Sunday really lovely days. Yesterday was cold and windy - but I was working anyway! Today has been lovely again and still really nice tonight.

Needless to say I missed the Stamp Addicts programme as I've only just found time to get online now!

Take care,

Paper Creations by Shirley said...

Both designs are beautiful, and I'm sure you could guess that my favourite is the first one. Love the bright colours, the stamping on the your background and your gorgeous flowers. The 2nd is just as beautiful with a great colour combo. The textured paper over the background is very effective & again great inking with the stencil. Hope you are doing well, Shirleyx

Hi Brenda
I cant tell you how excited I am. It is 9.30 my time now and they board in 1 hour and land here at 1pm. John said to me last night, just remember that Rick and Lorien are coming with Hollie, as, he knows I will make a beeline straight for her. I will post pics as the week goes by and she is going to pick a number for my blog hop comment winner tomorrow.xxxxx
