Your New Challenge projects


Good Sunday Morning Ladies,

Oh I do hope that you were all blessed with the absolutely gorgeous weather that we had yesterday,  my arms were burning while I was sat on the decking.  We had a lovely relaxed day and then went out for dinner last night with Matt & Alex for Alex's birthday, 

Let's have a look at your projects, I am enjoying using all of my unused things. 

Your New/Unused Stash Challenge 


Maria's Description:

Hiya, two offerings for this Sunday coming here. 

Both cards have stamps or dies from old magazines. I also used a stencil on one of them. It was a pack of 12 different ones so I have to play around with.
Hope you like them 😊

Two beautiful cards Maria,  I love how you have created the bubbles above the champagne glass. The stencilling on your second is the perfect background for those lovely butterflies.
Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge XXX 


Lilian's Description:

Hi, here is my card for this week.

I found this stamp while looking for something to use. I don’t think I’ve used them before, can’t tell you when I bought them, the tree is separate from the flowers, which are loads of little stamps. Stamped the flowers and then made them bolder with inktense pencils. 

Oh Lilian what a beautiful card, so much pretty detail, the little tufts of grass and dragonflies finish the look brilliantly. 
Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge XXX   
I hope you have a lovely weekend with your family x


Karen's Description:

My version of Tracy Evans Snippet 8 
The new/unused stamps are the flower from #332 and the small mouse from #811 
The sentiment is from #326 which I have used before.

I love it Karen,  that wood effect background is amazing,  I haven’t attempted that one yet.  The dark background makes the pretty flowers really pop.  Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge my lovely XXX 


Sonia's Description:

I used my new DarkRoom Door Daisy border stamp, inked and heat embossed. I then painted the flower centres with Lavinia Stamps Mystical Mica sprays and added lots of splatters. The sentiment is from The Stamp Market.

I absolutely love your card,I love that stamp too, although it is rather large πŸ€£πŸ˜‚, the coloured centres and splatters work so well with the design. 

Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge XXX 


I hope that you all have a lovely Sunday,

Love & hugs to you all,

  2. Hi everyone
    Love all the cards this morning. It was a good task as I'm sure we all have stamps, dies or papers we never have used before so roll on next week.
    We had a fabulous time yesterday and at dinner my sister had her puddings (she got two)🀭 with candles and we all sang for her to her embarrassment πŸ˜‚. My knees are killing me but hopefully when we get going they be alright for today we going to see the castle and pop in and out of shops to my OH dread πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—. No rain fingers crossed until later tonight. Have a nice day everyone. Hugs to you all, Maria xxx
