Anne Shirley - Tomorrow


Hello Friends

I hope you are all having a good week. I wanted to make something for this month's Craft Stamper Take It, Make It Challenge. This month you have to use the embossing resist technique. If you know me you know I LOVE to emboss. So much so that I had to go and get a new heat tool this week. My old one was dying!! 

Anyway on to my card. I absolutely LOVE Anne of Green Gables. I still have the DVDs and all the books I was gifted many years ago. I have yet to make my trip to Prince Edward Island but it is on my list to do so. I picked up this book at the dollar store month's ago. I wanted to use it more for quotes for my cards. But then I got the idea to rip out a page and actually stamp on it.



I first stuck the page to a piece of card then very lightly went over it with gesso. I then stamped my images and heat embossed them with white and silver embossing powder.  I would usually wipe the excess embossing powder away with a small brush. But I wanted that messy kind of sea spray look you get when you little bits behind. I heat set it and left it to cool.  Next I took 3 different distress inks and wiped them on to my craft mat.


I added a little water and then just worked the ink on to my card. I built up the colour until I had the look I wanted. Then wiped off the ink from the embossed areas to leave clean images.


Once it was dry I added some tiny butterflies. I then typed up the quote from Anne herself and printed it out. I wanted it on white paper and not the the yellow book paper or I would have used it from the book. I cut it out and glued it on the card then mounted it to a white card base. I really like the way it turned out. Thanks so much for visiting.

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 .
