Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Anyone getting stir crazy yet ?
I have always been fine with my own company so I am okay just hope everyone is keeping safe at the moment.

Today I have a couple of stamped cards I made a few weeks ago when I treated myself to Sheena's stamps after seeing her demos on C&C.
I am not good designing stamped cards for some reason I seem to have mental block about it.

These are both A5 in size.
First one is a tent fold.
I stamped the bird house in Archival black ink and coloured it with distress inks and water.
The second one I decided to keep all one colour.
I did spritz these with Crafters Companion Sparkle Clear Pens, but it doesn't show up in the photos sadly.

Thank you for your visit, and precious time.
I love your visits, and wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Beautiful cards Jenny and I especially like the first one. I love the contrast between the grey and the red flowers and it's a lovely stamp. Practice makes perfect with stamping and then you'll be hooked like me. I'm pleased to hear that you're coping well through this tough time and I'm sending you a virtual hug for tomorrow. Take care and stay safe xx

Well I think you have done an amazing job of designing these two cards Jenny. Two completely different designs with such a lovely stamp. I like my own company too and can always find something to do. Keep well xx

Chris said...

They're both gorgeous Jenny, such different looks achieved by the different techniques, I would find it difficult to pick a favourite.
I'm glad you're coping well with the enforced isolation.
Keep safe and well.

Two great interpretations using this lovely stamp. Sad that the sparkle pen work doesn't show up in pictures but it is good in real life which is the main thing.

Absolutely gorgeous cards Jenny, it's a lovely image and love how different they look in the two colourways, I do love the first one though.
Keep safe and well Kate x x

Hi Jenny, I'm like you, I have always been happy with my own company, and when you have hobbies there is always something to keep you occupied. I have been doing stamping and also making and sewing a very intricate patchwork table runner, and Graham has been building his model railway buildings and scenery.
Your cards are both gorgeous, I adore the first one. I know what you mean about your stamped cards, when I make stamped cards I always have to have something 3-D on aswell because mine never seem 'finished' otherwise, aren't we critical about our own work.
Take care and stay safe and well.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Two beautiful cards, Jenny. Difficult to pick a favourite, but I think the first one just has the edge. Take care and stay safe. xx

These are both gorgeous Jenny. I love the colours on the first one. I have the same trouble using stamps, I have lots of them and no inspiration on how to make them in to a card design.
