Frosty Mornings

Hello Friends

I have been feeling really low lately. I have a combination of the winter blues and feeling homesick blah! We have been getting snow lots of snow here in upstate NY. I am so tired of  winter and being stuck inside. I am from Scotland where our winters are so much milder. You can still function and get out and about in winter time.

I have not been in the mood to craft either, but I had a sudden burst of energy to make something last night. So I wanted to make something that would reflect how I was feeling. This card captures that perfectly. When I step outside first thing in the morning. The snow is swirling all around and the howling wind blows right through you brrrrrr!!!

 I had the perfect stamp in mind for that too. This girl stamp from the What Lies Within KOM. Her hair blowing in the wind was perfect. I went with kraft and white for my colour scheme and some vellum. I also used some snow patterned kraft card and corrugated card to create all of the layers. The sentiment is from Frosty Mornings Lots Of Snow Itty Bitty stamp.

I hope you like my card thanks so much for stopping by!!! I am away to get a hot cup of tea and watch some more snow fall outside my window.

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
