Baby Elephant


Hello Friends

I hope you all had  a good week :)  I just got back from Scotland two days ago and I am still pretty jet lagged! I loved being home and the weather was just perfect. I got out and about quite a bit but more about that later.

  I was crafting last night but I did not get around to finishing anything off. So I wanted to share a card that I was asked to make a few weeks ago that I have not got around to posting yet. This card was for a wee boy who just had his first birthday. How cute is this wee elephant?? I love it so much this is Unity stamp called Sweet Elle.  The balloons were made with another stamp from Fiskars called Birthday Bash.

I stamped the elephant and water coloured it then cut it out. Next I stamped the balloons on to some coloured card and fussy cut them too. I then attached the balloons to the elephant with some coloured twine. I used foam squares to adhere it to my card to give it some dimension. Then I made a banner with the same card stock and adhered it to the top of my card. I then stamped the sentiment then sprinkled some sequin stars around. I finished the card off by mounting it on to the same two card colours then a white card base.

I hope you like my card I really like the muted colours I used. Usually all of my baby cards are done in pastels so this make a nice wee change.

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 . Hope to see your project
