Craft Stamper Challenge TIMI ~ June Reminder





Hello Friends

I am back with another texture tag!  Also to remind you to come and join us over at the Craft Stamper Challenge Blog if you have not already. As you know this month our theme is texture. So I used embossing powder and some stitching to create the texture on my tag. You can pretty much use anything you want that will give your project some texture. Remember you must also include stamping somewhere in your project.

 I started out with my tag and sponged two different colours of distress ink Dusty Concord and Picked Raspberry. I went over the top with a  Tim Holtz Burlap stencil using the same two colours on opposite corners. Then I used a musical note distress stamp on the other two corners. Once it was dry I stamped over the top with this lovely heart stamp from Unity called Follow Your Heart. I used Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I used my border punch along the side and strung some purple hemp through the holes. I then stamped on some ribbon with the same stamp using the distress inks. Finally I added some cute wee buttons just to finish it off. 

I hope you like my tag now it's your turn. Come on over to the blog and join in the fun. There is a great prize this month. A voucher worth £20 from Rubber Dance Arts Stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hey Friends Welcome to a new  Craft Stamper  challenge for November. Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year already!!  Where did time go?? It has been pretty cold and frosty up here in Scotland for the last few nights.   But I am hanging on to Autumn as long as I can. I took a wee walk around the park and collected some lovely Autumn leaves.  I wanted to incorporate them into my project today.  I put the leaves in some paper and put them inside a heavy book overnight to press them down.  I started off with a white card base and used this sentiment stamp from Unity and repeat stamped all down the side of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.  Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue.  Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside t

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!
