Let there be light

Happy Friday Friends I hope you all had a wonderful week :) I have wanted to make vellum luminaries for such a long time. Since it was wet and gloomy out today I decided it was the perfect day to to make them and cosy up my house.  I found a great deal on vellum at the craft store a few weeks ago so I bought some just for this project. I inked up my new stamp set I have not yet got around to using it's called Insightful Meadows you can find it here at Unity it is such a pretty stamp set.  It was on my wish list for a long time and I finally treated myself to it :)

 This is a super easy project all you need to do is stamp your image on to the vellum with VersaMark ink. Then cover it with white embossing powder and heat set it that is it - easy right? 

You can either adhere it to a candle or glass wear or just leave it loose which I did. I glued the ends together making a circle using fabric glue that dries clear. I placed it over a tea light that was in a clear glass holder. You could also use faux candles if you were worried about it being around an open flame. They are so pretty and totally change a boring old tea light into something beautiful :)

This is my friends with flair entry over the at the Unity Blogspot come and join in  :)

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
