New Poppy stamp, more flowers and some steampunk


Morning Peeps, it's mid way inspiration time at We Love Chocolate Baroque and Stamping Sensations challenges where our themes are 'Beautiful Blooms' and 'For a Lady. Lots of feminine creations at SS but all rather slow at WLCB, not sure where all those floral stamps have gone!!

I also have a post today over at the Chocolate Baroque blog here, details of my work are listed there but also sharing my cards in this post and here is the first which was my favourite from those I made for that TV show on the Craft Store. Steampunk is always a bit of a nemesis with me, but I found this one relatively easy, probably because flowers were involved, even if they do have wings!


My Poppy card top of this post is from last weeks Craft Store TV shows uses the brand new Chocolate Baroque Polygon Poppies which I absolutely love, not just the Poppies themselves but all the extra worker stamps like the numbers...........numbers make me so happy on inky cards........ the little hexagons, extra Poppies and text. It's an Oxide background and everything simply stamped in Versafine black.


For this one I used Chocolate Baroque Luv Shack and Rose Perfumery , Pan Pastels for the background and some added TL Ivy leaves around the frame with the Roses.


My SS creation uses Crafty Individuals Spring Flower Garden, a stencilled background and a Kraft die cut frame along with a bow of lace and twine.

And here are my last two from my CB post here.


Hope you have some of this lovely sunshine we are enjoying this weekend.

Great Minds, I used that verse on your 2nd card this week as well. It is timeless isn't it. That Poppy stamp is about to send me off either to the Craft Store to CB's own site it is fabulous and i quite like the flying tulip as well. Of course they are all gorgeous cards from the backgrounds up. but what else do we expect from you xoxo

Donna Ellis said...

How fantastic these colorful masterpieces are, B! I enjoy the collage elements wherein a mixture of unexpected images are put together. Your backgrounds and color choices look wonderful! hugs, de

HilaryJane said...

This is a very special collection of cards, they are all quite different but also all very beautiful, love all the different backgrounds xx

Craftyfield said...

That scene with the Luv shack and these beautifully fussy cut roses... wow! I do like both the Poppy and Steampunk cards, edgy but not too grunge and the colours of the Mermaid card. Fabulous collection, Brenda!

Ellibelle said...

Such a nice variety of cards here Brenda. These stamps are all so beautiful and you surely know how to turn them into stunning cards! Each one really wonderful!

OMGosh Brenda what a selection of gorgeous cards, I especially love the little house and the wonderful rose frame, lovely designs and colours on all, Kate x

Che dire.... c'è un'esplosione di energia in questo post!! :) Quanti diversi stili, timbri e designs, e con molti particolari interessanti!!! Sei sempre così eclettica! Tante brillanti ispirazioni, come al solito! Grazie!
Adorabili i nuovi papaveri, io non amo molto i numeri, ma sulle tue card sono sempre perfetti, non sono mai troppo invadenti. Stupenda la palette di colori che hai scelto! Incredibile il nuovo tulipano con le ali, e giallo e nero è sempre una combinazione così appropriata!
Luv Shack con lo sfondo delicato e la sorprendente cornice di rose e foglie è stupendo!!! Davvero romantico e dolce! Quanto lavoro per farlo, ma davvero ne è valsa la pena!!
Amo moltissimo la card per SS, così luminosa e solare, i bellissimi fiori e quel fiocco meraviglioso che li evidenzia così bene! Bellissima anche la cornice che sembra fatta all'uncinetto! :D Una splendida fustella.
La sirena per CB è la mia preferita, insieme alla card precedente. Adoro come hai messo in mostra il bel viso con quell'anello e il fiocchetto, e che colori fantastici! Lo sfondo è davvero una delizia!
Mi piace anche molto come hai usato i pesci di CB, ottima ispirazione. Ho questo set di timbri e mi hai fatto venire voglia di usarlo :)

Beautiful cards and love this stamps and your whole design.xx

kiwimeskreations said...

What a huge variety of cards Brenda, and some awesome work amongst them. Loving your steampunk one with the winged flower :). That Polygon Poppy stamp set would frighten me, but you have shown if off perfectly here!
Stay safe

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Lovely variety of cards. That house is very cute. Too hot for me this weekend

Conny said...

Wow... these are wonderfuld cards Brenda, my favourite is your fish your card. You have been very busy!

Hugs, Conny

Wendy L said...

Wow, where do I start, they are all gorgeous, the 1st one very you, Poppies, xx

Linby said...

You have been super busy - I couldn't believe all the lovely variety as I scrolled down. The poppies obviously stood out to me as did the gorgeous colours you used - I must try not to always use green for leaves! The other stand out for me was the flower frame with the die cut leaves so very pretty.

Mervi said...

Gorgeous cards all of them.
A little cooler here, so we made a trip during the weekend, nice to see friends alive;-))m

Rainey's Craft Room said...

You certainly have a varied and fabulous collection of floral stamps Brenda, I love all the cards you have created here. Steampunk is one of my favourite styles but I have trouble creating in that style myself - perhaps I'll stick to just looking at the beautiful work from others :)

Another fabulous selection of cards with different techniques....you put me to shame Brenda

Sarah said...

What a fabulous collection Brenda!! I don't "get" Steampunk and what it involves but I think you have managed a great job with the winged rose!! My favourite is actually that lovely cottage. There was a crooked man, is now on repeat in my head!! Hope you are bearing up in this opressive heat, it looks like it is going to break before the weekend. We have 200+ bales to be delivered and stacked so would like it a little cooler for that as it's not my favourite job!! Instead of sequins and glitter I will be finding hay in unusual places!! xx

SewPaperPaint said...

I really love the mixed media feel to the first two cards and am crazy over the hexagon/poppy combination. The softer, more feminine cards are also extremely beautiful. Always such a plethora of inspiration here, thank you!

Greta said...

Very creative works, Brenda! I love that kraft frame!

Craftychris said...

Oh my! What a stunning array of beautiful cards. I agree with Greta, the kraft frame is gorgeous! I must use kraft card more. Take care xxx

Tracy said...

So many gorgeous creations here Brenda, I adore them all, can't really pick a favourite but just maybe the steampunk rosebud might just have an edge for me.
Happy crafting
Tracy x
