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 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!
