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 :)

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
