Moments


Morning Peeps, it's our first Allsorts challenge of 2022 and I am your host with the theme of 'Black and White plus one'. This weeks prize is an A4 stamp set from Rare Earth 

Above a box of Fairy cards using a plethora of Fairy Hugs stamps, all are available from Julia here or in the States here. I won't list them all as there are about twenty in total so will just name the Fairies who are called Lantana, Tara and Olivia. I have followed a Black White with Pink as my plus one, although I used crystal white glitter which looks perfectly white irl, but has distinct green hues in the photos which I re-did several times to no avail. 

The backgrounds are all done with Oxide sprays Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry and stamping with Versafine Clair Nocturne. The box was made using an old TL die set, one I probably use more than any other as I love the shape.


For my second plus one above I have gone yellow as I love the striking contract with black and white, plus it gives subtle hints of Spring on the way in a few weeks. The stamp is from AALL and Create, the blooms stamped a second time and decoupaged, some mesh from a greenhouse raid.......one day he may even realise I do this regularly and all sorts of things end up in my craft room!! I also added a few worker stamps into the background, a sentiment from another set stamped onto vellum, the single word 'Moments', some twine and a little metal tag.


Happy weekend everyone, stay safe and well and my thanks for your visits.

Happy New Year Brenda. Fabulous makes to kick off your first theme for 2022. I love the hexagonal cards and box … great theme with the fairy scenes and I too am having a bit of a hexagonal moment having received some AALl and Create hexagonal stencils and a hexagon background stamp for Christmas .. there is something very stylish about that shape. Love the pop of colour and beautiful A&C stamp on your other card … I think I may start to develop a A&C obsession too 🤣🤣

What lovely cards for your challenge, Brenda! While pink is one of my all-time favorite colors, I really really REALLY love the black-white-yellow combination. It's so fresh and happy. I'll try it, too. Beautiful cards. I hope 2022 is good to you, B, and that your health will stabilize. Sending happy wishes from across the pond! xx

Such beautiful creations, Brenda. Love the shape for those pretty fairy cards and what a clever idea to use the mesh from the greenhouse on your second card!

Buon Anno Nuovo Brenda!! Hai iniziato così bene con questa splendida scatola esagonale e le sue magiche cards! Rosa è un colore perfetto e di buon auspicio per un anno dolce e gentile! Un sacco di glitter e le deliziose fate di Lavinia per le tue scene piene di magia! Anche il sentiment sul coperchio è così bello!
Anche la card in giallo e nero è straordinaria nel tuo stile così particolare pieno di dettagli timbrati! I fiori applicati danno una bella dimensione e ano quella "libellula" :) che hai creato con la tag di metallo e la corda da giardino! Bellissimo sentiment anche qui!
