Hope - Teal & Gold

Happy Friday Friends

I hope you all had a good week :) I made this card inspired by the colours of a new journal that I bought. I was out shopping for a birthday present for my husband and came across an array of colourful journals at TK Maxx. I did not need a new journal but I just loved the colours on this so I just had to have it.  I love the colour teal it is one of my favourite colours along with Turquoise. I always seem to grab those colours first when I am crafting.  I am not usually a fan of gold I am more of a silver girl but these two colours go really well together. I would never have put them together if I had not seen how good it looked on this journal. It is so amazing the things you find that inspire you to create! Here is a picture of my journal.

I love this Hope stamp from Unity you can find it here. I embossed it with gold embossing powder on to white card. Then layered it on to a teal chevron background then some gold tone card that was made using my Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine. The glitter card base was cut from card stock that I found at Tuesday Morning it was such a bargain 12 sheets for $2.99. if you live near a Tuesday Morning they have some great craft bargains. My local store has some great card and paper stacks amongst other things you should go and have a wee look around. I bought way too much stuff I just could not resist ;)

Anyway thanks so much for stopping by I hope you have a great weekend. I sure will we are leaving for vacation to Maine for a few days then hopefully on to Prince Edward Island. I am so excited!!

Friends with Flair @ Unity

Here is my Unity Friends with Flair entry.  I used my Feel the Joy stamp and used the generation stamping technique with memento ink. I then sponged the background in purple and deep pink pigment ink.  I mounted it on to white card and added the Happy Birthday sentiment at the bottom. It looked too plain so I added teeny weeny little butterflies from the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.  P.S I ran out of daubers and all I could find was a magic eraser it did the trick as a makeshift sponge :)                                        If you want to take part hop along to Unity and enter  here I just had to make another card I just love this stamp I wish I had gotten it sooner it is so versatile. I think it may be my new favourite Unity Stamp :)                                                                           Thanks for visiting :)

Love You - Hot Pink

Happy Friday Friends :) I hope you all had a good week. Here is the card I made for this weeks friends with flair today.  I used two stamps on this card. The hearts are from the  You are my Main Squeeze stamp set. The sentiment is from the Strength & Dignity KOM 11/13 .  The vibrant pink colour is Picked Raspberry distress ink that I sponged all over the card. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder. I really like he effect it created it looks almost like chalk.  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
