The Christmas Door

 My new Unity stamps arrived yesterday woo hoo :) I was actually waiting on my angel Arianna Girl stamp but she has not yet appeared. So I decided to make something with the other stamps that came. I started off with the The Most Wonderful Time of the Year stamp set that includes a sleigh I love sleighs :) But I could not get my sleigh coloured the way I wanted. After 4 tries and crumpled paper everywhere I gave up and decided to change direction. So I got one of the single sentiments out that I ordered Sending Christmas Blessings I love that sentiment it is also hard to find so I am glad Unity sells it :)

I wanted the sentiment in a circle but my punch was too small so I used a candle to make the circle drew around it cut it out then put the sentiment in the middle. I wanted to make a wreath but I did not have any wreath type things to make it with. So I dug out my hydrangea punch and did the best I could. I used green glitter card to give it some sparkle. I added some red rhinestones and a red ribbon bow. I was going for the Unity colors of the month so needed something brown to add to it. I had a kraft card base that would fit in the colour scheme and added the wreath to it but it looked to plain then I thought I will try and make it into a door.

  I had seen some lovely Christmas doors on other blogs and pinterest but they seemed a little elaborate for me and I don't own a die cut machine so the ones I really wanted to make I just did not have the tools for. So I figured I would do my own style I cut out a large square and 2 rectangles. I used my scoreboard to make lines around it to give some dimension.

 It needed something else so I sponged a around them with memento  rich cocoa ink. I glued it all together and colored in a white pearl with a brown marker and it actually came out copper so fitted as a door knob nicely.  I added the wreath and here is the finished card it turned out so much better than my sleigh did I just love it :)

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
