Unity Hop May

Hello Friends

Welcome to my first official hop as the new girl on the Unity DT yay!!!  

I am so excited to be on the team :)

Here are few cards I have made so far with the new releases.

I kept my cards pretty simple.

This first card was made with the See the Light stamp kit. 

My second card was made with a combination of You Are a Classic & Best Fishes.

My final card was made with this lovely butterfly set called Keep Going Anyway.
 I love this set! 

I hope you managed to get some of those stamp sets. 
The butterfly one is my new favourite I highly recommend it!

Craft Stamper May ~ Anything Goes

Hello Friends

Welcome to another Craft Stamper Challenge.
 Can you believe it is May already! 
This month we have an anything goes challenge for you. 
 So as long as there is stamping on your project make anything you want. 

I went with sunflowers for my card today. 
 I am loving all of the spring flowers and the long days of spring. 
 This flower stamp is from Unity called Struggle & Strength.
The sentiment is from the Worth It All sentiment kit. 
 I used my watercolours and added some burlap to give it a rustic feel.

Our sponsor this month is Designs By Georgina. 
They are giving away 3 stamp sets and 3 new stencils to our lucky winner. How fab is that?

God's Sight

Hello Friends 

I got some lovely new Unity Stamp in the mail this week.

So I just had to have a wee play with them  :) 

I made this card today all coloured using my peerless watercolours! 

I have not used these paints in so long and I forgot the lovely soft look you get from them. 

This girl is totally adorable the stamp is called God's Sight.  

I love the sentiment that comes with it also.

  Just beautiful!!  

The colours I chose are from the Unity colour challenge on facebook teal and grey.
I threw in a splash of pink too! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Wind on My Face

Hello Friends 

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend! 
I had a wee crafty play around on my desk yesterday just for fun and made this card!
I have a ton of stamps that I have not used yet and this is one of them. 
If you know me you know how much I LOVE Phyllis Harris Stamps. 
This is one of them it is called Life's an Adventure. How lovely is she?? 

I used my Derwent Inktense Watercolour Pencils to colour her.
I pulled some of the colours from the Unity photo inspiration challenge on facebook.
I wanted the swing as the focal point.
 So I actually  fussy cut her out and replaced the stamp swing rope with real twine. 
I did a very light watercolour wash as a background. 
The sentiment I used is from another Phyllis Stamp set my favorite called Your Wings Exist

I love the way it turned out :) 
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Hello Friends

Welcome to April and to another new challenge from the Craft Stamper Blog
This month our challenge is Take a Technique which is Spring Flowers. 
We want to see you using flowers on your project this month. 
That should be easy right?? I went with this bold Poppies stamp from Unity. 
The sentiment is also from Unity and comes from the Worth It All sentiment kit. 

I used my Brusho's to create the background and colour the flower. 
I love these two colours turquoise and alizarin crimson, they compliment each other so well.
 I also used the crimson brusho to colour my seam binding ribbon to match my card.

Our lovely sponsor this month is Traplet!!!
