Serene Nature

Hello Everyone
I have a card to share which was made months ago and has already made an appearance at the Darkroom Door Blog.
This card features a stamp from the Etched Flowers stamp set (all details can be found in the blog post at Darkroom Door).

Challenge You To Be Brave (Take Ten)

Hello Everyone
It was the most wonderful surprise when I learnt that a card I submitted to Stampington & co’s Take Ten was selected for the Design Challenge department in the Autumn issue.  This is where a card is interpreted into a sketch layout and the readers of Take Ten are challenged to submit their own card(s) to this particular design layout.
This card only came about because at the time I had received the All The Gals stamp set from That’s Crafty and I was having a play around, planning a DT project.  My initial plan was for the card to be a DT project for That’s Crafty but at the last minute I laid it aside to submit to Take Ten, never imagining this result!
This is exciting for me so you can imagine that I wanted to share with you however it didn’t seem correct to share the actual card or the layout as the deadline for submitting is still active (deadline is October 15).  A compromise, to share this little peek at my card!lynnemoncriefftaketenautumn Many Thanks for your visit to this post.

Sit Quietly With Me

Hello Everyone
My first post for this brand new week sees me sharing two cards,  a birthday card for a cousin and a card sent as a thank you to a lovely couple (friends of my parents, who showed me kindness) but the cards also double up as team samples for Crafty Individuals as on each card I used one of their new stamps, CI-416.
A quick post as there are no detail photographs to share.
The cards are different sizes but essentially are duplicates using the same paints, fabrics and washi tape and adorned with lace roses stained/painted to co-ordinate.birdtwolynneFor the birthday card I also made use of another Crafty Individuals stamp, CI-407, an Elements stamp comprising various sentiments.  The actual stamp has the sentiment surrounded by an ornate frame so I stamped onto tissue paper, removing the frame element before adhering to the cardbase.  I might have used the stamp as a whole but it didn’t work with the composition. birdcardonelynneThank You for your visit to this post.
