Unity Be Inspired Challenge

Hello My Crafty Friends

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I was playing about with paints last night and decided to make a card for the Unity Be Inspired Challenge. The colours are sooooo pretty. I love the different palettes they come up with each month. So these are the colours I had to work with.



I am totally getting into painting lately I bought loads of cheap acrylics just to play around with. It is so not my thing and I am not much of a painter but I LOVE getting messy with it. The stamps I used in my card today are from Unity of course they are called Wishing you Joy & Miracles Happen.

I started out with some kraft card and embossed the flowers with white embossing powder. I then used my paints to colour the flower heads different colours. While the paint was still slightly wet I sprinkled white glitter all over the flowers to give it a touch of sparkle. I added some tiny butterflies and mounted it on to  white card then a turquoise card base that I had scored. Finally I used Broken China Distress Ink for the sentiment to stamp with and placed it below the flowers along with some gemstones.



I hope you enjoy my card ~ Thanks for visiting xox

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hey Friends Welcome to a new  Craft Stamper  challenge for November. Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year already!!  Where did time go?? It has been pretty cold and frosty up here in Scotland for the last few nights.   But I am hanging on to Autumn as long as I can. I took a wee walk around the park and collected some lovely Autumn leaves.  I wanted to incorporate them into my project today.  I put the leaves in some paper and put them inside a heavy book overnight to press them down.  I started off with a white card base and used this sentiment stamp from Unity and repeat stamped all down the side of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.  Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue.  Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside t

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!
