Magical and in my garden


I'm here today with the new themes for August at the monthly challenges I am on the DT for at We Love Stamping and Stamping Sensations.

My first card is for the Anything stamped with option of  Make it Magical at Stamping Sensations. I used Lavinia stamps and stencil to create this card with the emphasise on leaving some white space.

We have a Prize of 3 Fairy Hugs stamps

My second card is for the theme of In my Garden at We Love Stamping. I love succulents and so had to have this large Altenew stamp but I've only used it a couple of times before. I thought it would work as a background stamp. I coloured it with brushos and scribble sticks.

Then I used some stamps from various sets and fussy cut them out again colouring with brushos. Then I used a JND stamp and die set Bee Balm for the flowers and the little bee. I added a few foilage leaves from a JND die and pearls to the flowers.

There are 2 prizes, an AALL and Create A5 stamp set and a stencil.

Both magical and so impressive!!! The first one has a fabulous airy feel with that lovely hanging fairy and the wonderful stencilled background!!
And the second one looks very impressive with that catch-eyes succulent!!! So clever using it as background! Fabulous colours and little details! The sign looks so cute with the sentiment and the tiny butterfly!!

Love both these Lynn. the first one does look truly magical with that amazing background stencilling and the second is right up my street as I love succulents too. I don't actually have that stamp but Darnell once sent me a load of stamped panels that I then made into cards. That was fun to do. I also bought the matching embossing folder and have only managed to use it once. I have to buy things and then when I have can't work out how to use it! Stupid I know. Anyway, great cards from you this month xx

Love both of these Lynn.

The Lavinia fairy card is smashing and I love your stencilled background and pretty stamping.

That succulent stamp is huge, but very pretty. xxx

Stunning results on both card Lynn, love the Lavinia and how it's beautifully put together and the rose with the added garden images, just fabulous.

Totally different but equally pretty cards Lynn, choosing a fav I may just edge towards the Fairy, no surprises there I guess.

Both cards are so pretty Lynn but that fairy one is truly delicate and magical, love it!
These are lovely, Lynn. I do love a bit of stencilling behind a silhouette image and your colour choices are perfect! Second card is beautifully inky and bold. Fab! Hugs, Lesley
