In the Pink, Rudolph Day and winners



Good morning to you all, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts where Susan has chosen the theme of 'In the Pink'. Our sponsor is Scrappers Delight and Sizzix.

It's another outing for Penny Black Passionate stamp, I know I have used this an awful lot but I so love the gorgeous image and how many different looks you can achieve with it merely by changing the colours of ink. After inking the stamp with Distress Markers Picked Raspberry, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and a touch of Fossilized Amber I spritzed liberally with water and stamped onto Fabriano 300gsm card. I did a bit of background stenciling with Picked Raspberry DI and stamped the PB sentiment with the same ink. I also added a PB butterfly coloured in with the same colours.

Please do pop over to the challenge blog to check out the teams work and the prizes on offer.

I was determined to join in Mo's Rudolph Day this time round, I stared the year OK but things tailed off so her is the one for this months challenge.


This is the first outing for the Inkylicious stamp and mask I bought at the Thetford show back in February, in fact I bought another set as well but yet to try those out. I sponged Pan Pastels thought the mask and stamped the image with black archival ink. Some snow glitter on the house and glittery snowflakes although the sparkly hasn't really picked up in my photo. A Penny Black sentiment and bow to finish.

And last but by no means least the winners of the Tattered Lace goodies and the Tote Bag goes to........................

And some Tattered Lace goodies..........................



Congratulations to you all, please mail me with your full names and postal addys' so I can send your goodies.

Happy weekend all,

Marianne said...

These cards are both so soft and pretty, Brenda. It's good to have a few classic, timeless stamps in one's collection, since you will be able to use them with new techniques. Love the soft stenciling and the added butterfly to finish the design. It seeems to me that your new mask and stamps wil also be keepers. Thanks for the reminder that I still need to create a card for Rudolph Days. In fact, I should create seceral Christmas cards if I want to avoid the November stress this year.
Have a good weekend!

Good morning Brenda. I love the pink card today, the bloom stamp is stunning and you really can't beat a pink card. The Christmas card is delightful, I am still not into Christmas crafting but with the begining of June next week (where is the year going?) I really must get a little festive.
Congratulations to all the lucky winners, what a great way to start the bank holiday weekend.
Have a lovely long weekend

D K Crafts said...

Hi Brenda, two very beautiful cards. Love the flower image and colouring and the snow scene is really effective. Donna

Kathleen said...

Wonderful card, love the stamp and how do you get two colours on a stamp? It is a wonderful stamp and I am the worst for using the same stamp over and over again, but I always think ... use it while you love it, as it may not last that long, something always takes it place.
Great RD card too, fabulous design and images.
Hope your mail is sorted soon.
