Stamp-a-Faire



I am so happy when I get more than an hour to create.  This afternoon I had about two hours to create and got four cards done for the Stamp-a-Faire challenges. The first card is my favorite of the bunch. It was for Kay's Water Color Like a Master challenge.  Best part about this was that I didn't have to worry about the stamps lining up perfectly. Love the soft, soothing feel of this card.


My second card is for Amy's Starry Night challenge. I didn't have any white paint or thick white ink...so I couldn't quite do the whole technique but am pleased with the way it turned out.  Always good to get a bit more use out of my distress inks!


My third card is for the Masterpiece Inspirations Challenge.  I  loved the bold colors in Henri Matisse's picture.  This card will probably go to Ryan when he's off to college.  Only a few weeks to go...and this mama's heart is happy but hurting a bit at the same time.


My last card is for Lizzie's Drips & Splatters challenge.  You can tell I'm a bit of a CAS girl...so I kept the splatters a bit minimal. This card will go to a co-worker whose birthday is in a few days.


I'm hoping to play along with one or two more challenges before Tuesday morning. We'll see how much energy I have when I get home from work tomorrow!

Now I'm off to see Me Before You with my mum. Think we'll need to bring some tissues for sure.

  4. Oh, I love your take on all of the challenges so far, especially the Matisse one with the tree/leaves! Genius! I remember how it felt taking Jake to university the first time...it gets better, trust me...but yes, lots of tears at the beginning ox

  8. These are fantastic, Lynn! Gosh, I wish I could accomplish that much in two hours. LOL! I'm lucky to make one card in that time, and there's no way they'd be this gorgeous if I tried.
