Door Hanger Sign

Hello Friends

I am back from Scotland and I have horrible jet lag! It's been 3 days and I just can't get back into this time zone yet. I had such a lovely time at home in Scotland with my family. The weather was pretty mild it rained mostly. When we landed back in NY I walked out of the airport and my lips froze it was that cold yikes!!! Today we have snow so I am home having a crafty day :)

 I made this door hanger a few weeks ago for my friend Colin who is massage therapist and yoga teacher in Scotland. He just moved into a new place of work and needed a new door sign for his room.  He asked if I would make him one so of course I took on the challenge :) If you need a massage and are in the Glasgow area I highly recommend him. Here is his website Glasgow Yoga Massage if you are interested in checking him out.

So on to my door hanger :) This was a plain wooden hanger that I painted then covered in card stock. I printed out the words and stamped the tree image using my distress inks. Once the card was stuck down I gave it 2 coats of clear glue to protect it. Next on each side of the hanger I sprinkled some copper embossing powder and heat set it then added some twine. This was just to reinforce it being handled on a daily basis. Finally I added some twine and a wee metal embellishment that says serenity on it just to complete it.

I hope you like my door hanger! It was the first one I ever made and I am pretty pleased with it :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today have a lovely day!!

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
