Potato Stamping



Hello Friends

I  made this card for the challenge over at the Craft Stamper blog. This month the challenge is to use a potato. Yes that's right a potato! We have to cut a shape out of a potato and stamp with it. I was not sure how that was going to work. It was much easier than I thought. So I made a flower and leaf shape as best I could. I need to work on my carving skills :) 


  I used Faber - Castell Gel Sticks  and just rubbed the stick right on to the potato and stamped. I was pretty happy with the overall design that I had made. I used my Martha Stewart Hydrangea Punch to add additional flowers around the card. I also added some gemstones on some of the flowers.

 

 I chose a sentiment from a stamp set from Unity called Imagine It.  I really like this set I find myself using it a lot. Once the card was complete I attached it to a Kraft card base. I left some space at the bottom and added 3 tiny little flowers. I really like the way this turned out :)

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 . Hope to see your project
