Bright Blossoms

 I was in the mood for making a bright flowery card and wanted to do something a wee bit different. I love this flower stamp so much I use it all the time it reminds me a lot of cherry blossoms. I was going for a funky two tone effect. I sponged half  the card diagonally with rose bud memento ink then stamped the flowers using versamark ink. I heat embossed the flowers with white embossing powder to make them stand out. I stamped the white side of the card using the rose bud ink.  I sprinkled rhinestones around the flowers and the Birthday sentiment in the middle to finish it off :)

Arianna Girl

I have been wanting to play with my new stamp Arianna Girl since she arrived in the mail the other day. I just love this stamp you can find it here at Unity Stamp Company.  I embossed some white card with a Darice embossing folder called Scroll Flourish corner you can find it here at Darice then added the image. I coloured her with alcohol markers then sponged the entire card with memento ink leaving a little white around the image. I heat embossed the swirls with white glitter embossing powder. I added lots of glitter glue and rhinestones to make her sparkle :) The purple is really hard to photograph this is the best I could do.  I am adding her to this weeks Friends with Flair over at the Unity blog tomorrow.


 Here is another one I made a totally different style :) I paper pieced some of her dress on this one and added a ribbon. The sentiment is a single sentiment from Unity you can find it here :)

The Christmas Door

 My new Unity stamps arrived yesterday woo hoo :) I was actually waiting on my angel Arianna Girl stamp but she has not yet appeared. So I decided to make something with the other stamps that came. I started off with the The Most Wonderful Time of the Year stamp set that includes a sleigh I love sleighs :) But I could not get my sleigh coloured the way I wanted. After 4 tries and crumpled paper everywhere I gave up and decided to change direction. So I got one of the single sentiments out that I ordered Sending Christmas Blessings I love that sentiment it is also hard to find so I am glad Unity sells it :)

I wanted the sentiment in a circle but my punch was too small so I used a candle to make the circle drew around it cut it out then put the sentiment in the middle. I wanted to make a wreath but I did not have any wreath type things to make it with. So I dug out my hydrangea punch and did the best I could. I used green glitter card to give it some sparkle. I added some red rhinestones and a red ribbon bow. I was going for the Unity colors of the month so needed something brown to add to it. I had a kraft card base that would fit in the colour scheme and added the wreath to it but it looked to plain then I thought I will try and make it into a door.



  I had seen some lovely Christmas doors on other blogs and pinterest but they seemed a little elaborate for me and I don't own a die cut machine so the ones I really wanted to make I just did not have the tools for. So I figured I would do my own style I cut out a large square and 2 rectangles. I used my scoreboard to make lines around it to give some dimension.


 It needed something else so I sponged a around them with memento  rich cocoa ink. I glued it all together and colored in a white pearl with a brown marker and it actually came out copper so fitted as a door knob nicely.  I added the wreath and here is the finished card it turned out so much better than my sleigh did I just love it :)
