Noel

 
 
 
Hello My lovely Friends
 
I hope you are all well this Christmas season. I was cleaning my desk last night and found lots of stamps that I forgot I had. So I made this wee Noel card. They were buried under a mess on my desk. This was one of the new ones that I got a few weeks ago she is called Only Imagine. How cute is she?? I love her wee face and her huge big eyes. The Noel is from another stamp set called Silent Night.  So I put the them together to make a Christmas card.
 
I got some  new Derwent Inktense Watercolour Pencils last week the 36 set and I really love them. They were an early Christmas present from my Mum. They are so easy to work with and they travel really well which is another reason I wanted them.  I had the smaller set and I really like them a lot now I have lots of colours. So I used them to colour my card. I added some enamel accents to create the snow.  Then some clear glitter glue and finally a wee rhinestone star just to finish it all off. I really love how it turned out.
 
I want to wish all of my followers and readers a very happy Christmas when it comes to you. I may not be around until after Christmas so I wanted to make sure to wish you all well. I can't believe Christmas is next week!!! I have a few bits still to get and wrap but I am mostly done shopping. I am also collecting some crafty things to have a wee giveaway in the new year so  have a wee look out for that.
 
So on that note I will leave you with a photo I took of Glasgow my home town all decorated for Christmas.
 
 
 
hugs

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!
