Craft Stamper ~ May Reminder ~ Take A Stamp

Hello Friends

I am back with a reminder for the Craft Stamper Take It Make It challenge. I hope you have had a chance to join us with this month's theme Take A Stamp. If not that is OK because there is still time to join us.

 You can make anything your little heart desires for this challenge. As long as there is a stamp on your project somewhere. There are a few other rules you must follow to play along so hop back to the Craft Stamper Blog and have a wee read at them. There is a wonderful prize package you can win. A set of 6 vintage embossing glitters in a case, and a lovely lace stamp from our sponsor WOW!.

I made this distressed jar for my project today! I LOVE it! I used this lovely Unity stamp called Within Beauty.  I have been saving empty jars forever so I wanted to start making things with them. This is such an easy project to make. All you do is paint the jar with acrylic paint. I used two coats of this lovely duck egg blue. Let it dry completely, I left mine over night. Then I took my archival ink and stamped it. Next I took a nail file and distressed some of the areas. Finally I tied some jute around the top to finish.

 How easy is that?? You really can't mess this one up! So feel free to have a go at painting your own jars they turn out so pretty.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! 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

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!
