Hello and welcome!
Today is the start of a new theme at Allsorts challenge. It's Lolo's week to host and her theme is "Favorite Stamps and/or Dies". Anyone is welcome to join us with a new creation following the theme and our prize this week comes from Oakwood Archer so hopefully you'll join in for a chance to win!
And here is what I made using some of my newer favorites along with an old favorite.
I don't buy new stamps all that often (many new releases seem very similar to what I already have and love) but this beautiful Penny Black stamp Daisy Dream had to be mine, it's from a more recent Penny Black release. This is actually a large stamp with these pretty daisies inside a glass jar/bottle but for today's card I only used the flowers for a different way of using it.
A few sticky pearls were added as embellishments on the butterflies, mounted on white and the I used a pretty blue card base (SU card stock, but I am not sure of the color. Probably no longer in their current assortment.)
This is such a beauty Ellibelle, love the flowers and the background.ReplyDelete
Such a pretty card Ellie, and I love how you have used the daisy stamp so 'differently'.ReplyDelete
What a pretty card! I love the words on the bottom and the cute butterflies!ReplyDelete
A lovely delicate floral card Ellie. I like all the elements on it. xxxReplyDelete
You are so right about many new stamps being similar to older ones Ellie, would be easy to keep buying then you stop and think (hopefully!). A lovely summery feel to todays card, very pretty.ReplyDelete
This is such a pretty card, your stamping and design are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
That is so pretty!ReplyDelete
It is indeed a beautiful stamp and your card is gorgeous Ellie. xxReplyDelete
I love how you've brought everything together to make this pretty card. I also like that daisy stamp but I am going to forgot I saw it lol!ReplyDelete

I love all things with daisies, and this is a lovely arrangement. Such a soft pretty background.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful design! The daisies are my favourite. I love the Picked Raspberry Distress ink that you've used. :) #MMBCReplyDelete
Fabulous and beautiful card.ReplyDelete
Another stunning use of Penny Black stamps and other products Ellie - you make them look so completely up to date in how you combine them with the modern techniques like stencilled backgrounds. Pity also the script border is no longer available - if it were i think it would have to be mine!!ReplyDelete
This is beautiful, Ellie! Jo xReplyDelete

Hi Ellie, just noticed that you had entered this beautiful card at Try it on Tuesday. I love how you have just used the flowers. I think you'll have lots of fun with this versatile stamp.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous card Ellie! Love how you've used those beautiful daisies outside of the vase. Such a great way to get more from your stamps. The colour combination is gorgeous ... love the soft speckled egg with the bright pink flowers.ReplyDelete
