Morning Peeps, at Allsorts our theme is 'Let's Celebrate' our 700th challenge. As it's quite a landmark we though we should make it a bit of a special week and there are four lovely prizes to be won.
At the top a quick make this week using my current favourite Oxide Saltwater Taffy which goes so well with Cracked Pistachio. I used AALL and Create Patches background stamp repeat stamped with those two colours and spritzed with water to create the background, the flower is from a new'ish set called Elegant Stems stamped into an inked offcut and paper pieced, the circles stamped with elements from Fully Fledged and the sentiment from Textured Florals. The pot is a Two Red Robins die inked up to make it look a bit more weathered.
My card above with a matching insert and envie was for Zachary and Faiths wedding in August using the lovely Lisa Horton die, embossing folder and stencils set. The photo below shows the wedding stationery I made for their special day following their chosen rustic theme. The theme was carried to the tables in the marquee with foliage from the gardens arranged on wood slices from a fallen tree in the top paddock along with flowers in the same colour way.
I also have a recent make which was the release of Highlight Crafts Vintage Botanical Bliss on Create and Craft TV recently. The scrolls, sentiment and feathers are from the same set. The Emily Dickinson poem is a very old wood mounted stamp I bought at the NEC many years ago, I believe from The English Stamp Company but nothing on the wood to confirm. The Sunflowers are also Highlight, Two Red Robins Turning Heads.
We hope to see you all joining us for our special week.
