Lovely Katya, Russian Palaces, Flowers and Flamingo's

A selection of the Russian Palaces stamped onto a Brusho background

Afternoon peeps, I have only been posting weekends recently with my DT makes, but I thought I really should share some of my DT creations made for the recent Hochanda and Create and Craft TV shows.

First up here are a few of the 20 or so I made for the weekends Chocolate Baroque One Day Special using the lovely Russian stamps which included the beautiful Katya. Mindful that this is going to be a rather lengthy post I will just add a few details below each picture, if you want to know more then always happy for you to mail me.

Katya stamped and embossed in gold and highlighted with gold and blue pens onto a dry brushed acrylic and gilding polish background

Russian Palaces stamped onto a distress ink background then bleached out and sections of the Russian Floral Egg stamped and embossed with detail white powder

A selection of the the Russian Dolls and Palaces

The Russian Floral Egg with Gilding Flakes onto a DI background overstamped with the new Crackle background stamp and stenciled sunrays

Next are a few of my Stamp Addict shows which also aired over the weekend, I forgot to record them so hoping they will soon be uploaded to rewind.

The largest Flamingo stamped onto a DI background stamped with some of the distress elements and a sentiment from the same release of stamps

I love this Dad stamp (so wish mine was still here to send him this one) along with the new stars and background elements onto a DI background

Using the new Daisy Frame onto a Brusho background

DI simply brushed and the large Flamingo and Flamingo border along with one of the new sentiment stamps

And finally, some Tattered Lace and Rare Earth (TLs' new stamp range) samples.

One of those I made for the Finding Dory show (and yes I had to Google the name to find out what it was......how sad is that !) using both the dies and coordinating stamps

One of the samples for for recent release of the Spring Flower dies

This one was for the latest Art Deco release

Using some of the dies from the Spring Flowers release and sentiment from the Rare Earth Scribbles release

Using a selection of the floral and background stamps and new inkpads being released by Rare Earth this week

The new Rare Earth letters, background element stamps onto a DI background - I also stamped the harlequin stamp using gold texture paste to get a nice grungy feel

More stamps from the floral release along with inks and brayer which will also be on the show

Finally, when there are flowers there has to be a floral wreath and on this one I used more of the pretty new pastel inks

Many thanks for taking a peek and hope I haven't sent you to sleep with so many cards in once post, but as you will guess I am well overdue posting some of them.

Oh WOW Brenda, what a stunning collection of cards you have here. I love them all, bought the Chocolate Baroque collection (even though I already had the russian dolls), it was such a good price. I also bought the Art Deco set of dies too. Need to sit on my purse now and get using them.

Hello Brenda
A fabulous collection of cards. I was able to catch a couple of the CHocolate Baroque shows and really enjoyed watching Lesley create some fabulous cards. The Dt work was brilliant and very inspirational.
I, of course love the TL samples. I sat on my hands as much as I could but the Molly die just had to come and reside in my craft room. And she is very beautiful.
Take care

Oh my goodness. What splendid & varied designs of your gorgeous cards. While each one is just so beautiful, I'm especially loving the black & golden eggs. Looks so much like a Faberge egg from the Czar's collection. You are just so skillful with these products. TFS & Hugs

Wow! You've certainly been busy. I went and made myself a cuppa before revisiting so I could ponder over your gorgeous cards. What an amazing selection. Unfortunately I missed the Chocolate Baroque show and haven't seen these Russian stamps. Especially liking the first card. The silhouettes look fabulous on that great brusho background. Your cards are always very inspirational! Barbxx
