Beach Stamping

Hello Friends I hope you are all well and having a great week! We just got back from Maine, oh how I love it there. I had some beach therapy it was wonderful. We go there on vacation all the time but that was not why we were there this time.  My husband has been offered a job in Maine, so we went out house hunting and to check out the area. While I was there I had to do a little crafting of course. I took a stone and stamped it with VersaMark ink. As it dried it came out like this with a nice dark image. I used this lovely Unity image designed by Phyllis Harris called Present in my heart .  I love this stamp of the wee girl looking out into the ocean. It seemed so appropriate to use on the beach stone.  I left it at the beach I hope someone finds it! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Mandi xox Friends With Flair

Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge ~ Take A Stamp

Hello Friends Welcome to my first post as part of the Craft Stamper TIMI design team! I am so excited to be part of this wonderful group of designers. Our theme this month is Take a Stamp! As long as there is stamping somewhere on your project that is all that matters. Easy right? So you can express yourself however you want to.  All of the details can be found here.   This is the project I came up with. I used white embossing powder and Brusho.  I LOVE Brusho it is my new addiction. I love how you can take a wee pot of coloured powder and create such organic patterns with it.  I used a Unity stamp on this card called - Don't be like the rest of them. I love this stamp so much it incorporates two of my favourite things butterflies and script writing. I stamped with VersaMark ink then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then sprinkled some Brusho and sprayed my paper. Once I got the pattern I wanted from the Brusho I heat set it. Then I went back over the bu
