Butterfly Blues


 Hello Friends

I managed to get another tag made for the Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge. I love love love using white embossing powder to create projects. So I wanted to make another quick entry for this challenge. This time I went for a lovely butterfly and used my watercolours again on this one. This stamp is from the Trust Your Soul smak kit from Unity Stamp Company.

I created the background on the tag with my paints, silver stars and glitter. While that was drying I heat embossed my butterfly in white, cut it out, painted it then glued it to my tag. I only glued the body of the butterfly so that I could pull out the wings creating a 3D butterfly.

I love the colours on this one so much. This is the first time I have used this butterfly stamp and I love it. I just know it is going to be one of my favourite stamps. I hope you like my tag thanks so much for stopping by :)

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!
