Tag Challenge

Happy Monday :) It's my day off today I got up early to do my housework this morning. I thought I would check my email first then signed onto Facebook. BAD idea!!! I saw the tag challenge on the Unity show and tell page just had to take part :)  I have never done a tag before. I only had really small ones so decided to take the template and just make it bigger.

My inspiration was some card stock I got from Michaels craft store a few months ago. It was a cherry blossom tree. I just love Cherry blossoms :) So I pulled out my faithful flower stamp from the Angie Girl : Dream with your heart set. It reminds me of cherry blossoms I use this all the time. I then searched my stash of Unity stamps for a nice sentiment. I  wanted something with HOPE in it. I found the While I breath, I hope stamp from The simple things stamp set. I love the word hope it keeps me going in my faith when times are tough.

I stamped the flowers and the sentiment using Memento rich cocoa ink. The sentiment is one long sentence so I had to stamp it on sections to fit on the tag. I then used some acrylic paint to for the flowers. It was looking a little plain so I then stamped the whole tag with Memento Angel pink with a scrunched up paper towel. I added some small pearls for the centre of the flowers and some pink and brown ribbon.


 Here is the finished tag I love it and there are no butterflies in sight :) 

Here it is beside my inspirational cardstock :)

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
