Let there be light

Happy Friday Friends I hope you all had a wonderful week :) I have wanted to make vellum luminaries for such a long time. Since it was wet and gloomy out today I decided it was the perfect day to to make them and cosy up my house.  I found a great deal on vellum at the craft store a few weeks ago so I bought some just for this project. I inked up my new stamp set I have not yet got around to using it's called Insightful Meadows you can find it here at Unity it is such a pretty stamp set.  It was on my wish list for a long time and I finally treated myself to it :)

 This is a super easy project all you need to do is stamp your image on to the vellum with VersaMark ink. Then cover it with white embossing powder and heat set it that is it - easy right? 

You can either adhere it to a candle or glass wear or just leave it loose which I did. I glued the ends together making a circle using fabric glue that dries clear. I placed it over a tea light that was in a clear glass holder. You could also use faux candles if you were worried about it being around an open flame. They are so pretty and totally change a boring old tea light into something beautiful :)

This is my friends with flair entry over the at the Unity Blogspot come and join in  :)  

 Thanks for visiting hope you are inspired have a great weekend :)

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!
