New stash at FlonzCraft and some CHA shares



We have a new challenge starting today over at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges, this month our theme is New Stash. As always there is a very generous $20 voucher to be won from FlonzCraft.And please remember that although our title has Vintage in it, your entries do not have to be vintage, everything is welcome providing there is hand stamping focally on your work.

Believe it or not it's always a theme I struggle with as the family gave up giving me crafting goodies for Christmas years ago, taking the view..................probably quite correctly.............that I already have far too much. So the best I can offer in the way of new stash is the DP's on this card which I bought a few weeks ago.

I stamped the pretty little girl appropriately called Girl under umbrella with versafine back and embossed her with detail clear powder, coloured her with spectrum pencils and paper pieced her dress. The lattice to the left is Tattered Lace and the papers Trimcraft Mulberry Kisses, a gorgeous collection on lovely plus, greens and pale purples. I used some ready made flowers and curled some offcuts of papers to tuck between them.


And here are a few Tattered Lace shares covering a range of new dies and products coming up this week both here and across the pond and as some are special CHA launches there is quite an American influence going on. I have to confess that it's been so full on the last couple of weeks with sample making that I have got to the point where I am not totally sure what are for which show, so this is a very mixed bunch of the American style samples from the sixty plus I created for the shows.




By the time this post goes live I will be on my way across the pond (not any more thanks to this dodgy body of mine, looks like today will see a day or two in hospital whilst they sort me out again) so this is scheduled and there are a couple more posts scheduled during the next week with more of my offerings for the shows.

I hope you all have a good week.

Fabulous set of cards Brenda, love the little girl with the umbrella . I'm fascinated with the lines on the gold card, is that done with a die or a stencil? Must investigate further.

Amazing samples, Brenda - looks like you've been creating up a storm. I love the drama of the gilded Statue of Liberty with those wonderful flowers, and the little girl with the umbrella is adorable.

So sorry to read your trip has been delayed, and I hope they won't be keeping you too long in hospital. Wishing you well.

What a great row of cards! Love the little girlcard, but my favorite is your second; what a beautiful design and modern colours with the metal ones! Not so great that your trip to the CHA is cancelled and that you are in the hospital again. Sending some positive energy your way again! Hugs, Gerrina

Wonderful selection of cards, Brenda. Hope you're feeling improved soon - it is a frustrating and disconcerting feeling to be held hostage by one's body. You've really captured the essence of the American history in your creations. The are all so distinct and incredible! Hugs, de
