Love You Snowy Heart Tag



Hello Friends

I wanted to make a project  for the Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge. This month the challenge is white stamping. If you know me and my blog this is one of my favourite techniques to work with white embossing powder. I also happened to pick up the February issue of the Craft Stamper yesterday so I wanted to use the free heart stamp that came with it.  I am still home in Scotland for the holiday's still so I don't have all of my craft supplies but I did bring a few supplies with me and I happened to have another heart stamp that I used to create the top and bottom border.

I stamped my tag and embossed it with white embossing powder then I used my Peerless Watercolour paints to colour it. I really love the way they blend together. I went for a two tone look with the raspberry and plum colours.   The tag was so absorbed with water that the paper started to pill. I loved the way it left a snowy effect behind once I rubbed the dried in pills away. Don't you live it when unexpected things happen when you craft? I backed the tag on to some gold card and went around the edges with the embossing powder to give it a border. Then I added some little details a button and some twine to finish.

I hope you like my tag thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

The hearts are from the  You are my Main Squeeze stamp set. The sentiment is from the Strength & Dignity KOM 11/13 .  The vibrant pink colour is Picked Raspberry distress ink that I sponged all over the card. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder.

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
