Happy Birthday Panda



Hello Friends

I got some new Unity stamps in the mail over weekend. I get so excited when I see that brown envelope arrive at my house, I am like a kid at Christmas ha! One of my new stamp sets are these little pandas how cute are they?? They came just in time as I needed to make my nephew a birthday card. He loves animals so this Plenty of Pandas stamp set was perfect for his card.

This is such a simple and easy card to make. I just stamped the panda and the sentiment from the Sweet Elle stamp set  in Versafine black onyx ink. Then I used a balloon stamp I have from Fiskars called Birthday Bash.  This set comes with numbers so I could put his age in the balloon. I painted the balloon in light blue with my water colour paints. Next I strung a little row of sequin stars along the top with silver floss. It looked a little too clean for me so I threw some paint splatters on the card.

I absolutely love the way it turned out. I hope he likes his card. He asked to go the zoo for his birthday so he will see real life pandas when he visits. They actually have a panda web cam there here is the link if you want to have a look at some real life pandas :)  Edinburgh Zoo Panda Cam.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

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 .
