Party Animals (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Hello Everyone
At the moment I have nothing new to share with you, new as in projects made over the past weeks but what I do have to share in this post are two cards which I made last year.  They were made to answer a Challenge Call at The Stampers’ Sampler for their annual Celebration Challenge.  I wanted to submit a trio of cards featuring Crafty Individuals Alice Palace designs.  Those particular stamps I have had a personal struggle when it came to inking them up.  The trouble was, I was desperately trying to fit them into my vintage style but once I simply kicked back and had fun with them, life was so much easier! For this Challenge Call I have only ever submitted to a shabby chic/vintage style but this time I wanted to be a bit more playful.
In this post I am sharing two of the three cards that were published.

His beady eye is most certainly on them! puffindetaillynnemoncrieffOn both cards, the birthday stamp is from Oxford Impressions’ Fairy Sweet and the Happy is from Darkroom Door.
I will share, over time, the other submissions which I was thrilled to have published. There are more which were in answer to this Challenge Call and some other bits ‘n’ pieces.
Thank You for your visit to this scheduled post. I really do appreciate your loyalty and friendship.

    These are beautiful, Lynne, they have a lovely celebrations feel to them. The colours remind me of delicious cakes and ice-cream I used to see in storybook illustrations as a child; but could never seem to discover in the real world. I especially love that little puffin! xxx

    Such sweet images and I love the way you’ve combined them with the other elements to create these lovely cards. Sorry I haven’t been visiting very much lately – always so much to do. I hope life for you is good Lynne.

    They are so sweet and playfull, and such lovely colours, like summer icecream or sweets, The polka dots one is my favorite with the sweet rabbit, and fabrics you used. But they are both beautiful, and sweet, dear Lynne.

    I love both dear Lynne, they are so cute and well done, simply really gorgeous. You must be very proud to be published at each submission I guess!!.. That’s such an honour! 😀
    I love how you have used the little scalloped banner (from Tando Creative, isn’t it?..) and stamped the little cakes onto, that’s really lovely!!
    Big hugs, Coco xxx

    So sweet – the gentle ice-cream palette, so muted in the background layers makes a great setting for these charming stamps. I bought the hares ages ago, but to my shame have never inked them up as I couldn’t quite fit them into my making, despite adoring them… must take heart from how you overcame the struggle!
