Mother's Day

Hello Friends

I just made a quick Mother's Day card for my Mum. It has been a hectic few days and it totally slipped my mind to make her card. Mother's Day is day is on the 30th March in Scotland. THIS Sunday yikes!! I will mail it out today, hopefully it will only be a day or two late.

 I used the flower from the Strength & Dignity KOTM. The sentiment is from a free kit I got from a magazine.  I used white embossing powder on turquoise Recollections card stock that I got from Michaels. I heat embossed 4 flowers and cut some of them up and glued them around the card. I added some small pearls to each centre. Next I stamped the sentiment at the bottom and added some white ribbon to finish.  I have not used this flower stamp yet as I could never think of a way to use it until today. I love how clean and fresh this card looks.

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

All of the details can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. Mandi xox

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!
