Flourish for AALL & Create

Hello Everyone

Hope you are all well.  Apologies, I have been dilatory in my visits and comments but I am still suffering with what the doctor now thinks is bronchitis, but, I am up and about again and determined to stay that way, so I hope to catch up soon!

This week for AALL & Create I have created a couple of mini houses, one a little vintage and one very bright a cheery.  I used two sets of flower stamps by Tracy Evans, #164 and #119 along with a stencil #17.

The first is the little vintage one.
I die cut the house shape from Kraft board, stamped and coloured with watercolour pencils.  The roof was stencilled using Stencil #17 and some texture paste.  I finished off with some string, a charm and a vintage looking safety pin.
The second little house is a bit brighter.
Again, I die cut the little house, coloured it with watercolour paints, stamped and coloured the flower (twice) with watercolour pencils.
To finish off I layered the flower up and added a large clear bead to the centre.  I wrapped some red string around the house and added a ladybird charm.

You can find a full list of worldwide stockists of AALL & Create products HERE.  You can also buy from AALL direct but we much prefer it if you can support your local shops where possible.

Thanks so much for your visit, I hope to resume normal visits soon!

Hugs, Anne xx


  1. These are superb Anne, I don't believe i've seen Kraft board before doesn't it look amazing gives such a warm homey feel and definitely a touch of vintage. The second gives a very bright and bold of that amazing flower. I love the addition of the charms. Each fabulous with their individual styles. I really need to use those dies more.
    Sorry to hear you are still suffering Anne, I had not seen you online and thought you may have been on an exotic holiday soaking up the sun drinking cocktails whilst dipping your toes in the pool :( Sadly not I see.

I truly love these beautiful little houses, the way that you’ve incorporated the wonderful stamps really showcases their beauty!

    Your houses are both fabulous Anne and such a great way to use the stamps. I love them both lots but for some rason the vintage abode is really calling my name. Wonderful creativity .

  12. I adore these tiny houses, Anne! You have done a fabulous job with the stamping and coloring on the vintage looking one, and the second really makes me smile with it's bright whimsical flower and ladybug! Love the water colored background to contrast. Another brilliant post; so glad to have the time to spend with you this morning. Sending more wishes for a beautiful weekend!

  13. They're both fabulous, but you can probably guess that my heart is drawn to the vintage version. I really love how the painted flower head pops against the kraft. Magical!
