Bear in a Bauble

 I stopped into to Michaels Craft store after work today and got some good Black Friday deals :) I picked up this plastic bauble for 50c as I wanted to try making a Christmas tree decoration with it using my stamps.  It comes in 2 halves so all you need to do is insert you image and close it over and add some ribbon super easy :)

It just so happened this little bear fit perfect into the ornament you can find here at Unity. I had already coloured lots of them earlier this week. So all did was draw around the bauble to get the size and cut it out a just a wee bit smaller so it would fit inside. It turned out better than I thought it would. So I am going to make a bunch more and personalize them with names of the people who will be receiving them for Christmas.

               How cute does he look I am sure he will look great hanging from the Christmas Tree :) 

Here is another one I made using the A friend loveth Stamp set from Unity. I stamped 2 large butterflies I covered them in purple glitter embossing powder  and heat set them. Then  I cut them out and glued them back to back in between filament wire to make it float in the bauble  :)

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!
