Thinking of You



Hello Friends

I hope you all had a good week :) I sure did  :) I made this card for this weeks Friends With Flair over at the Unity blog. I have been busy experimenting with paint this week but I went back to my first love of EMBOSSING for this card :) If you know my style you know I just love embossing powder. I actually bought a lovely new turquoise embossing powder this week :) But I was in a red and black mood so I went with it for this card. It is super easy to make.

 I just stamped the flowers (which is from the Strength & Dignity kit of the month) with Versamark Ink and covered them with black embossing powder and heat set it. I used black glossy accents in the middle of each flower and also to highlight the tiny dots in the flowers. I tied a satin ribbon around the red card then glued it to my black card base. Next I stamped the sentiment ( from the Forever Friends kit) using Versafine Ink. I attached it to some black card to give it a border and glued it down then added some gemstones to finish. How easy is that ?


Thanks so much for stopping by today have a great weekend :) xox

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

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hey Friends Welcome to a new  Craft Stamper  challenge for November. Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year already!!  Where did time go?? It has been pretty cold and frosty up here in Scotland for the last few nights.   But I am hanging on to Autumn as long as I can. I took a wee walk around the park and collected some lovely Autumn leaves.  I wanted to incorporate them into my project today.  I put the leaves in some paper and put them inside a heavy book overnight to press them down.  I started off with a white card base and used this sentiment stamp from Unity and repeat stamped all down the side of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.  Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue.  Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside t
