Craft Stamper TIMI August Challenge Reminder



Hello Friends :)

I am back with a wee reminder of our August TIMI challenge - Take A Technique. You have to use your pens and pencils on your project this month.  I made this card and used my fine liner pen to create a border around the edge.  There is so much you can do with this challenge, all you need is your imagination.  So grab your pens and pencils and create something beautiful.  There is a great prize to be won a lovely stamp plate from Chocolate Baroque.  All of the details are over at the Craft Stamper Blog.

I made my card using a sentiment from the Unity Fly With Wings of Hope stamp set.  I stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I sprayed my paper to make it slightly damp. Next I sprinkled on two colours of Brusho. I chose turquoise and cobalt blue. I love the way both of the colours blend into each other and left this crazy pattern behind.  I dried it with my heat tool and then used my fancy scissors to cut around the edge of the card. Next I punched some of these lovely white butterflies using my Martha Stewart 3 in 1 Butterfly Punch. I glued them on to the card leaving the wings pulled up slightly. Then I attached it to a white card base. Finally I used my fine liner pen and just squiggled a rough border around the edge.

 I hope you like my card and you come and join in the challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

  4. That background is amazing!! I just got Color Burst pigment powders from Ken Oliver so I'll be able to try this technique. Have you tried these powders? If so, how do they compare to Brusho?

    Again, beautiful card! Thanks for the inspiration! :)

    1. Thanks Frexygirl :) I have not tried Color Burst so I cannot compare them. I hope to get them soon though.

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!

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
