Stamping at Allsorts



Good morning, it's Saturday which means time for a new challenge at Allsorts and this week Jo wold like us to use a stamp on our work. Our sponsor is Whimsy Stamps

There was a time when every card I made featured stamping and nobody was more surprised than me when I was invited to join the Tattered Lace team and discovered just how much fun it was working with only dies and how very versatile they are. 

Anyhow, I digress, today's card most definitely does have stamping, in fact quite a few of them, Sheena, Clarity and Penny Black. I stamped the scene with black archival and coloured in with Specrtum pencils and created the sky with Pan Pastels. And to finish a nice flourishy bow. This was a birthday card for a friend who like me has a bit of a thing for trees, scenes and birds, but it has reached it's destination so I know I am safe to blog it.


And................walk of shame............here is my Penny Black mid month card which I should have posted on Thursday, truth is I have been so busy with TL samples for next weeks TV shows that I totally forgot, in fact this is my first post since last Saturday. A heads up that if you love your flowers as I do, then you defo need to put a note in your diary for Friday 26th, can't say more but the new goodies are fabulous.

I would like to enter this into the current Butterfly Challenge 'F for Flowers' and a butterfly of course. It's only a small butterfly but fingers crossed it fits the bill.

Our theme at Penny Black and More this month is Wings and as always we have lots of lovely prizes so I do hope you will join in.

Happy weekend all.

  4. Good morning Brenda
    The Allsorts challenge this week is so me. I hope I get a chance to make a card for the challenge. We have decided to sell our house so my craft room is frightenly clean and tidy and I am afraid to go in there and mess it up. We have viewings all weekend but hopefully I'll be able to squeeze in some crafting on the kitchen table.
    Take care
