Gem of a plant


Morning Peeps, a quick post with a reminder of our current challenges at We Love Stamping and Stamping Sensations where are themes are A/G with a Floral and Fauna option and For a Lady or Girl. 

Above using AALL and Create Gem of a Plant stamped twice, coloured, cut out placed over a Sizzix Bigz window die. All were stamped onto offcuts as were the sentiments so I am going over to the Playground, they allowed me in last time round despite all my truancy so fingers crossed.

Some background stamping, my favourite squirrel and one of my own sentiment from Believe in Your Dreams. Lots have asked about buying the set, it is in progress and will be re-released shortly along with my first set of Christmas stamps.

And below using Penny Black Lilac and a hexagonal card cut with my old favourite Tattered Lace sets. The Butterfly is also Penny Black.


Have a good Wednesday and thanks for your kind visits.

Ciao Brenda, spero che i tuoi occhi stiano iniziando a sentire gli effetti delle medicine...
Mi piace molto come hai usato l'arco gotico e il twine nella prima card, fanno davvero risaltare i bei fiori, il tuo sentiment e lo scoiattolo. Lo sfondo è molto bello e luminoso.
I colori vibranti dei timbri PB si stagliano così bene sullo sfondo delicato nella card esagonale! Riesci sempre a stupirmi per il tuo eclettismo, due card con stili davvero diversi ma entrambe bellissime!
Ti auguro una buona giornata, spero che il sole resti da te!

Wow, two stunners here Brenda! Adore your snippets card - as always lots of wonderful detail - I love the simpler hexagonal card too, such a lovely sentiment as well. And of course you're always more than welcome in the Playground - lovely to see you playing along.

Two beautiful cards Brenda - Love the hexagonal card in particular. I have been inspired by your use of 'worker' stamps in your backgrounds, and have tried it myself.

A wonderful combination of stamps and colour on your first card. The second one has such a bright vivid colour combo and to repeat it on the dragonfly makes the whole card so pretty.

Fabulous snippets card on the first one, and a beautiful hexagonal card for the second.

Thanks for sharing your homework in the Snippets Playground. I'll let you familiarise yourself with the new hammock we've strung up beneath the Treehouse! LOL! xxx

I would love to sit on your shoulder and watch you create Brenda...two beautiful creations. The hexagon is very striking and the arty feel to your first card is lovely with its added dimension. xx
