Anything goes at Stamping Sensations for August

Good Morning! It is the first Saturday of the month and time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations. For one month only we are launching on Saturday rather than Sunday. This month we are giving you free reign and saying anything goes for our theme. I am sharing with you a couple of cards I have made recently.

First up I have a birthday card for my brother- in- law. He loves the outdoors and so I had a good excuse to use the old beech tree set from Inkylicious again! For those of you that missed previous posts about it, this stamp has been made in the image of a tree that my dear teamie Lynne can see from her front garden - how exciting! The background was dusted with memento inks in Grape Jelly, Bahama blue and dandelion. I used Adirondack Peach bellini around the sun.
My second card is another birthday card for a lovely friend who loves foxes. For this I used all products from Inkydoodles.
The leaves and fox were coloured in with promakers. The background was created by putting an Inkydoodles stencil through the cuttlebug and then dusting it with rusty hinge DI. The blackberries and acorns are also inkydoodles stamps.
Our prize this month is donated by Tonic studios. It is a fabulous die set...
and matching punch! Pop over to the challenge blog and see the fabulous inspiration from my lovely teamies. I look forward to seeing your entries!

Hello Sally

Beautiful beautiful cards. I just adore your first card. The dusted background is magical, especially the sun peeking behind the trees. Your brother in law will be so thrilled.

I love the embossed background of your second card and the little darling fox.

Lovely cards both Sally! As always your sky on the first card is amazing and a perfect backdrop for Lynne's tree and what a clever way to use dinky stamps from a set on the background of the second card.
