Silver Lining ~ GIU day 2



Hello Friends

Welcome to my second day of being the growing in Unity girl.  Today I went with another card and I used Brusho Crystal Colours this time on my card.  These are pigmented coloured powders that I love :)

You may have seen me using them before I am quite addicted.  They come in a wee pot that lasts forever.  You sprinkle some brusho on your paper and then spray some water and then sit back and watch the magic happen. This background is what I was left with after I had dried it with my heat gun. I used the Turquoise colour on my card today.

 This stamp I used today was one I had for a couple of years and have never used. I just never knew what to do with it until now. This stamp is called Silver Lining. I used the cloud as a template and cut around some silver glitter paper and used some foam dots to stick it down.  I love the 3D effect if the cloud on the card.  I love the way it turned out. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today I hope you like my card.

Remember and leave a comment if you want to be in with a chance of winning some lovely Unity stamps.

Happy Friday Friends :) I hope you all had a good week. Here is the card I made for this weeks friends with flair today.  I used two stamps on this card. 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. I really like he effect it created it looks almost like chalk.  Have a great weekend :)

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
