Just for fun stamping



Happy Monday Peeps, I hope your weekend was a good one, the weather was a mixed bunch here in the Fens and a hard frost this morning, but it's led to some nice sunshine.

A warm welcome to my new followers and a big thank you for all the lovely comments on my recent posts. Quite a few of those have been my Tattered Lace makes, die crafting is a whole new ball game to me but one I am thoroughly enjoying so it is very encouraging to know that you are liking what I am doing with them.

I have not had a lot of time for scenic stamping recently so over the weekend I had a little playand my just for fun session made a lovely change.


I used Pan Pastels for the colour on both cards and a mixture of Sutter, Art Impressions and Stampscape stamps.

Thanks for taking a peek and hope you all have a good week.

Even tho am in the depths of depression after yesterday I can still appreciate these beautiful cards.
You have a fabulous eye for scenes - I end up with not enough or too little detail and can't seem to get it quite right (sound like someone else we know????)
Have a great week. xx
PS Terrible day all round, bad performance, silly aggression and all hopes of number 4 spot faded. xx

Two beautiful cards Brenda, it's nice sometimes to just be able to play isn't it? We so easily get bogged down with the things we have to make that we forget to make time to just relax and create whatever takes our fancy. I'm glad you had time to play at the weekend, have a good week

I have finally purchased a few scenic stamps and inks so I can have a go myself.. Always wanted to try it after admiring yours but was always a little worried about where to start. I was watching a demo at the nec on sat and thought I would take the plunge and have a go... Wish me luck !

A beautiful scene here Brenda, really nice mix of stamps and colors.
Happy to hear you were able to enjoy some sunshine. We had ice rain this morning and it's just a gray sky. And it's supposed to be wintery cold this whole week...had to get out the winter coats again.

scrappymo! said...

Beautiful scenes, as always! The pink one has such a delicate and pretty feel.

Sitting at my computer as the painters work their magic downstairs. It is amazing how fast they paint. The ceilings are all done with 2 coats already and they finished the upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms yesterday. Today is the main floor....it looks scary down there. Trim is Wednesday and then we can start putting the house back together. Yay!

Just off for a wee catch up on your blog...

These are just so beautiful Brenda - your scenic stamping is always my favourite - such a gorgeous way you have with creating scenes. Fabulous! Big hugs Rachel x

MaryH said...

Gracious, these are 2 beautiful scenic cards. I was amazed to see you had done with Pans! Gosh, you had amazing control of that chalking, as my first thought was you had used inks & brushes or sponges. Great look on both these cards and a super well done job with the pans. Sure wish I could achieve something even close to this great with the pp's. TFS & Hugs.

Karen Petitt said...
