Winter Wishes - Unity Blog Hop


Hello Friends

Welcome to our GIU blog hop :)  This year was my first time as a growing in unity girl and I loved every minute of it. So this is an added bonus being able to be a part of the blog hop with all the other girls from the last few month's. Unity is such a great company they are so good to us :)  I LOVE my Unity stamps so much!  As you know we are showcasing this weeks stamp of the week for you today.  How cute are those lil trees? I am totally loving the pink and turquoise colour scheme at the moment. So I went with that for my card today.  I coloured  the image with my alcohol markers. Then when it was dry I heat embossed the whole image with clear glitter embossing powder.




I was going for a semi rustic look on this card using the burlap and kraft card as a background. I then paired it with some gold ribbon and glittery snowflakes.

Remember one lucky hopper will get the chance to win a whole month's worth of Stamp of the week from this hop. So leave us a comment if you have not already to be in with a chance to win. Here is the line up of the blogs you should have visited before you got to mine.

  18. WOW Mandi...such a very pretty card. The pink trees remind me of my grandmas aluminum trees back in the 60's. She once had a pink one then silver. I hated those damn things. I got shocked by them if I walked by and a stupid piece of tinsel would touch me LOL. But I LOVE your trees. And that pink burlap??? PERFECT!!

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
