Morning everyone, it's mid way reminder and inspiration time at We Love Stamping and Stamping Sensations where our themes are as always Anything Stamped with Trees and Leaves and Garden Delights.
My Garden Delights come in the form of eldest daughters Birthday card, her name is Joy so it was nice to personalise it using a recent release from AALL and Create Garden she Wrote along with one of the three blooms on Flower Trio which launched on Create and Craft at the same time. A masked and stencilled panel, the flower stamped and paper pieced and the name added and coloured with the same pens.
A Gelli Plate background created with Oxides and a stamp from AALL and Creates A4 set called Pinecone, by no means a new set but so popular and useful. Stamped, some colour and white highlight added, the word Pinecone from the same set and months stamped in contrasting colour from Seasons. The two little Cockerels come from a newish set called Bright Dawn.
A new challenge launched over at the Snippets Playground yesterday and this is my share, snippets were used for all but the stencilled oxide background. The Digitalis from A&C's Woodland, the sentiment strips, doggie and flower pot are all offcuts. A hint with the Dog who is called Clara from Highlight, if you you don't want to print a whole sheet of Reflections you can use the snipping tool on your computer to grab just one or two images to die cut, then you don't need to waste a whole A4 sheet of card.
Still plenty of time to join us at the monthly challenges, they run until Wednesday 27th September.
