Ribbons, bows and Saturday candy



Saturday and a new challenge at Allsorts where Helen would like to see Ribbons and Bows, I am thinking this will be a popular one as whatever our style we all like our ribbons. Our lovely sponsors this week are The Ribbon Girl and A Passion for Stamps.

A card made some weeks ago using a Rubbernecker stamp from their watercolour range which has quite a few poppies. It's a bit of a different concept as you stamp the solid part of the image and then over stamp with an outline one. I spent ages playing and decided the outline does not exactly match the inner stamp as which ever way I tried it was offset, but I kinda like the look. The sentiment is from the same set.


And a second card using Ruth's Passion for Stamps Horsechstnut, Beechnut and Maple leaves which I sprayed with Dylusions after printing and cutting out and intermingled with some flowers made with her Tonic Rose punch and stamp set. An embossed background and an Artistic Outpost sentiment.


Now for the winners of last weeks candy who is Kathleen, well done please mail me with your full name and postal addy. And this week an Imagination Crafts Christmas stamp and ribbons, same rules as usual....................

  • Add the Saturday Candyd logo from my sidebar to your sidebar (not this picture)
  • Be a follower of my blog
  • A random winner will be selected from all comments left on my blog between now and Friday, so two comments during the week two chances of winning and so on.
  • The winner will be announced next Saturday
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Super cards Brenda can't pick a fave this time!! Love the "look" of the poppies and the whole colour scheme and sentiment on the second.

fab cards and lovely sentiments have a fab day

Marianne said...

I think it's very playful that the outline of the flowers don't match the colorparts. And the second one has a beautiful embossed background and gorgeous leaves and flowers.

Helen said...

Beautiful cards, Brenda!! Have a lovely day (Newcastle... just hope we score more goals than they do!)

iReneM said...

These are both lovely cards, Brenda.
I think the watercoloured look of the off-set stamping on the first is very effective - a gorgeous autumnal wreath on the second and lovely sentiments on both.
Take care, B :)

Marianne said...

Hi Brenda, I think the poppy stamps are meant to be offset . Anyway, i love the effect and I think I need to check out this stamp company, since both the poppies and the sentiment are wonderful. Your second card is delightful too. Your coloured leaves are amazing. Have a wonderful weeekend!

Interesting concept I agree with those outlines & the poppies. It is your second one that made me really smile. I absolutely love wreaths & especially the autumnal leafy kind. The addition of those little flowers is an absolute delight.
Much love

Joan said...

The result is very " arty" and a lovely card,reminds me of an art class when we had to do splodges of red wet on wet paint and then draw poppy shapes onto them, I loved the effect and I love those stamps too

Eva Olmo said...

They are very beautiful cards, congratulations!!!! I love your stile.
Kisses!

Donna Ellis said...

Beautiful cards, Miss Brenda! I especially like the die cut inverted at the bottom of your first card, and the lively colors in both cards. The sentiment is very true, and should encourage us all to aspire to live what we believe, rather than talk about it. hugs, de

Gail said...

Karen Petitt said...

Stunning! I thought you had painted the first one. It's gorgeous Brenda and I think SU do similar sets. I think the point is that they never quite match - it looks more arty and like you've painted it. Rubbernecker is a new range to me so will pop away and do a 'google'.
Gorgeous wreath, only the best stampers are making wreaths this autumn lol! I love leaf stamps - just so very versatile. I hope you are taking it a bit easier now, have a lovely weekend xx

Daisychain said...

Two beautiful cards again. I love the Autumn Wreath one. Hugs Christine x
