Beautiful In Every Way




Hello Friends

I spent last night in my craft room and made five cards I was on a roll It is so unusual for me as I never seem to make a few cards in a row. I was testing out my new Metallic Gelatos. Oh how I love them. They are so creamy and lush to work with. This is one of the cards I made. I created my background with this lovely stamped flower from Unity it is called Much Of A Good Thing.  The Sentiment is from another stamp set called Every Way Beautiful.



I stamped the image with distress inks Bundled Sage & Worn Lipstick. I then coloured them with two of the gelatos that were closet in colour  they are Iced Pear & Melon.  I used them pretty much like water colour paints. I rubbed some of each colour on to my craft sheet and added some water and used a paint brush to colour with. I wanted a messy look to it so I added some gelato splatters to the background. Next I stamped my sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then distressed the edges of the paper and added it to a black card base.

I really love the way it looks  the photos do not do it any justice. The sheen from the gelatos is really pretty but it does not show very well in the picture.

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!
