Dream and Chocolate Boroque new stamps and papers sneak peeks

Morning Peeps, time for our new Allsorts challenge and this week I am your host and our theme is 'Pretty Papers', it's actually the theme Tracy S chose before she left the team but we decided to leave it as we know so many of you love your DP's.  And the prize is of course paper pads, three of them actually plus some pretty ribbons.

Further down you will also find some sneak peeks of what is coming up on Tuesdays Chocolate Baroque Hochanda shows which are at 11am and 3pm, some stunning new stamps and some fabulous papers designed by Lesley.

I made this one a while back using a new stamp from Honey Doo, they make some lovely floral ones which lend themselves to paper piecing which is what I did with this one and managed to use up a few snippets as well - always worth keeping those little bits. I stamped onto an Oxide background cut out the flowers, adding some glitter and pearls to the centres. The sentiment is from Inkylicious but afraid I have no idea the make of the paper. I am popping over to the Snippets Playground with this one, afraid what with holiday and other things I've not joined in for a few weeks.

And I used another Honey Doo stamp for my Butterfly Challenge card, it's one I bought at the Doncaster show and this was it's first inking. The Butterfly wheel this time round is Gold, Grape, Green, Gems, Glossy Accents, Glitter and of course a Butterfly. Since coming back from holiday I have been flat out catching up on samples for Tuesday's Chocolate Baroque TV shows, but managed to find an hour to make this one and incorporate all elements. 

I stamped the image and sentiment in Versafine black and heat embossed with detail clear, then coloured in with sparkle pens - one of which is called Grape. Next I masked the edges and added some Tea Dye DI to create a border, then fixed the CB Butterfly (which did start out purple but the glossy accents faded it) in place, added gold gems to the largest flower, iridescent glitter to all flowers and glossy accents to the Butterfly along with wire antenna and liquid pearls for the trail.

As promised the sneak peeks of the the new goodies coming up Tuesday on Hochanda.

Just look at the lush colours on this piece of DP plus new floral stamps
The colours are more subtle on this DP and another gorgeous bloom
Versafine Clair ink pads really lend themselves to the detailed images

As you can probably guess I was a very happy bunny working with these, anything floral ticks all my boxes, that said I love all things Chocolate Baroque as their stamps as such excellent quality and a joy to work with.

Another Allsorts one and unusually for me there is hardly any stamping, just the sentiment which is Penny Black. I make quite a few of this design as not only is it ideal for using up scraps of paper, they also sell very well at the RSPCA charity shop. The lattice in the frame is a Tattered Lace die and then simply assembled and flowers and sentiment tag added. The Ivy leaves are also TL, I think from my three years designing for them using literally hundreds of different dies, these Charisma Ivy ones remain my favourite.

Have a good weekend all.

Such a beautiful collection of cards Brenda and I'm now waiting to see the collection from Chocolate Baroque, I'll set the recorder so I don't forget. I love their stamps and have almost all from when Glenda very first appeared on C and C many moons ago now. I love watching Lesley's show when she's on Hochanda now with all of the lovely sets that I already have, so something new will be great.

Hi Brenda, how beautiful cards you made with those patterned papers!! Love the sunny and light feel of the first one, marvellous paper piecing and love the sparkling on the flowers! The last card looks really sweet and no doubt you sold it very well, the design is superb with the lattice frame and the amazing ivy leaves with the flowers! Love the dp under the lattice, how sweet!!
Also your card without patterned paper looks very pretty, and that butterfly is just a delight!
Here the storm now is passed away after a lot of damages to town and Nature... The weather isn't good again, but it's not so scaring, and sometimes the sun peeks up from clouds. Thanks for your thoughts and wishes!

Beautiful cards - I have that TL trefoil die - not used it in a while as I hate the waste of all the inards lol!

Gerrina said...

No stamping? If I make a card and there is no stamping on it I always am a bit in a shock that I did that...:)
Love your first card; it's so sunny and beautiful! That's my favorite this time...(Don't have to tell you that I too like the CB stamps so much...) Hugs, Gerrina

KandA said...

All wonderful cards, love the layering up of the flowers on the first, fabulous butterfly on the second and fabulous design of the third with that super TL die. I can see why these sell so well and make money for the RSPCA into the bargain xx

I was looking at the Honey Doo stamps at the NEC on Sunday. Too many to choose from was the problem. This is lovely and you have all the seven elements on here too. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me this week. Hugs Mrs A.
