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 the yellow leaf and a couple in the corner of my card just to add more interest. 

 I tied a wee bit of twine around the card just to finish it off. 

I absolutely love the way it turned out. I love using things in nature to add to my creations. 
Leaves make the perfect embellishment too. 
You just have to be careful as they can be a little fragile.

Now it is your turn to come and join the fun. 

We have as always some fabulous prizes up for grabs.

We have this lovely butterfly stamp from PaperArtsy.

All of the challenge details can be found on the Craft Stamper Blog.

I hope you have some time to come and play along. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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!
