One Earth


Morning Peeps, a new challenge starts today over at River of Creativity where our theme is 'One Earth and that theme follows through into my second piece which is one of my samples for Friday's Craft Store TV shows.

I'll admit this one did take a bit of thinking about then the idea gelled and it also made a perfect Birthday card for one of our DIL's who is something of an environmentalist and wants to save most things that move or otherwise. She loved the whole concept of the piece.

I started with a free Globe download, then stamped a CB Harmony Tree into place and the girl and rabbit beneath and one of my own Life is so much Better sentiments. On the other side a computer generated pair of hands and a CB leaf stamped and placed in them, a computer generated sentiment and two small slices of wood, one stamped and the other handwritten and some washi tape with leaves along some edges.


Tomorrow sees two shows with Lesley from Chocolate Baroque at the Craft Store, one show is all about Christmas with a lovely collection of text based stamps and the second show features new and rather different stamps from Fiona Randall. Above is one I made using the Celestial set which I thought worked rather well with our ROC theme.


Holly Script is an old set but I fancied a mixed media piece stamping onto a whiteboard heart, an acrylic brayered base card and holly leaves stencilled with coloured texture paste. The three little Poinsettias are one of the worker stamps from Poinsettia Script.

And finally, from my post over at the CB blog, a new shape for me but showcased four of the beautiful CB images from Floral and Fauna perfectly.


Have a good weekend everyone and my thanks as always for your kind visits and words of encouragement.

Wow wow wow!! Sono certa che tua nuora sarò rimasta affascinata come me dalla bellissima card a forma di arco con le splendide scene e i bellissimi sentiments! Davvero creativa e adorabile, oltre che perfetta per un'ambientalista!!!I toni del marrone e del verde sono davvero evocativi!
Il nuovo timbro Celestial di CB è molto elegante e sta benissimo con quei toni blu chiaro e marrone, una bellissima card perfetta per un uomo, direi!
La card Natalizia mixed media cattura davvero lo sguardo, che stupendo design e che colori freschi!! Hai usato i timbri e lo stencil così bene, bellissima ispirazione!!
Anche qui ha piovuto e l'aria di notte è più fresca, eppure Agosto è appena iniziato. Speriamo che ricomincino le belle giornate.
Buon fine settimana!

There is such a lot of work in that first one, I am not surprised your DIL loved it. I think my favourite of the trio is the Christmas card, love the vibrant green, the heart and the corrugated paper xx

A wonderful earth creation. I particularly like the hands and the leaf. So many other lovely makes too and of course the folded card with it's different flowers looks amazing.

Sarah said...

Wonderful cards Brenda, the tree message on your "One Earth" card calls out to me as a couple of our Ash trees seem to be affected at the moment, hopefully they will fight whatever is causing their blackened leaves. The four sided card is fantastic and I can see that sitting very nicely on a mantelpiece in a Christmassy design come December xx
