Sending Love

Hello Friends

I am back with another love themed card. If you know my work you know I love all of the colours of the sea. I have this thing for turquoise it seems to be the first colour I jump to. Anything it that light bluey green colour pallet I just LOVE! So I wanted to make a love themed card that was not pink or red so I had to go with turquoise!!

I made this one with this lovely wee balloon stamp from the What Lies Within Us kit. I stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The background was then water coloured with two tones. When it was dry I tore around the edges of the paper to give it a distressed look. Next I added it to a glitter and turquoise background then a white card base. Finally I punched some glitter hearts to embellish the corners.

It was a pretty easy card to make!!

Thanks so much for stopping by my today :)

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!
