Let the Butterflies Dance by Brenda

Morning Peeps, I have a couple of cards to share using the beautiful stamps from last months Hochanda shows which all centred around Lesley's vintage clocks.

And please do make a note to tune in tomorrow as Lesley will be back on our screens with a One Day Special and I promise you won't want to miss out on the new stamps which are absolutely beautiful...................OK I'm a bit biased, but honestly they are.

After building up a background with Distress Oxides and some of the worker stamps from Stroom Clock I stamped and cut out the floral and Butterfly elements from Floral Clock, coloured it in and placed over a die cut circle frame. Sentiments from both stamp sets, some white splatters and a couple of metal index clips.

The Seriously Gorgeous Postcards designed by Lesley were also released in the shows and here I have used one, stamped the single Parsley from Parsley Clock using Stayzon and given them a little colour, added some grasses from Wild Meadow and Shrink Plastic Butterflies. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

And here's one using the entire Parsley Clock stamped onto a stencilled background, I added two coloured of Oxide to a stencil, spritzed with water then stamped the focal image with Versafine black, stamped another of the flower heads along the bottom and coloured all. A Butterfly and sentiment from the same set.

Have a good Tuesday everyone.


  1. Stunningly beautiful cards and I especially like the colours that you’ve used in the first one Drends. The hop stamp is at the top of my CB wish list xx

  2. Gorgeous gorgeous cards, beautiful sentiments also.

  3. Wow, such gorgeous cards! Your backgrounds are always extraordinary and such great use of the stamps! Love them all, and especially the scene in the second one, that Summer Daze with the shrink butterflies dancing on the top of the "flowers" is a delight for the soul!!

  4. Thw three different 'clock' stamps are gorgeous Brenda, and love the bright colours used on the first two with the harebells and the parsley, and so and then the more CAS card, again using the pretty parsley and a lovely stencilled background with some wonderful masking, and the pretty butterflies throughout and super shrink plastic ones too. x
