Sympathy

It is never really a good time when you have to make a sympathy card. We found out our neighbour lost her mother a few days ago so I wanted to make her a card. I seem to pull out the Butterfly Corner embossing folder a lot for my sympathy cards. I love the detail on it and of course I love the butterflies. I bought mine at my local craft store you can find it online at Darice amongst other places . It was one of the first cards I made when I got into card making.  Here is my original card if you want to take a look :) I have made many other cards using this embossing folder it is so versatile here is another example. You can pretty much do anything you want with it. 

I used two different Unity stamps in this  card the sentiment is from the Sympathy and Sadness stamp you can find it at Unity Stamp Company website here. The butterflies are from the A Friend Loveth stamp set you can find that here.  I embossed some lilac card with the folder then mounted it onto a white cardstock base. I stamped the butterflies onto vellum using Versamark ink then added white embossing powder and set with my heat gun. I cut them out added some white pearls and used a fabric glue that dies in clear to stick them onto the card. I used the same white embossing powder on the sentiment to make it stand out.

         
  Hope you like my card thanks for stopping by :)

I am entering this card into the CAS-ual Friday's card challenge

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!

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 .
