Milk Bottle Butterfly

Hello my lovely friends

I hope you are having a great weekend :) 

I am back with another make using the fantastic Visible Image stamps. 

I am also using the same stamp set as last time because I love it so much!!

 This is the stamp set I worked with it is called Butterfly Beginnings

I love to paint bottles and stamp on them so this is what I did with this lovely butterfly.

I had an empty milk bottle I had around the house so I just use what I have on hand.

I like to use chalk paint to paint my bottles as I love the texture of it.

 I prefer this kind of paint as it does not peel off your jar and you do not need to prep your bottle.


Here are the steps to make your own bottle

1. Paint your bottle and leave to dry. I usually paint two coats of paint. Chalk paint dries pretty fast!

2. Then take your stamp and some archival ink and stamp on to your bottle.
 I like to stick my stamp to my desk and just roll my bottle over it. 
From one end to the other using firm pressure.

3. Take some sand paper or a nail file and rub off the areas you want to look distressed. 

4. Tie some twine and your done :) 

If you want you can also seal it but I like to leave mine with just the matt chalk look.


  They are so easy to make and would make lovely gifts for Christmas :) 

Speaking of Christmas Visible Image have 25% off of there Christmas stamps. 

Hop on over and take a wee look at what they have the sale ends on Sept 28th.

Friends with Flair @ Unity

Here is my Unity Friends with Flair entry.  I used my Feel the Joy stamp and used the generation stamping technique with memento ink. I then sponged the background in purple and deep pink pigment ink.  I mounted it on to white card and added the Happy Birthday sentiment at the bottom. It looked too plain so I added teeny weeny little butterflies from the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.  P.S I ran out of daubers and all I could find was a magic eraser it did the trick as a makeshift sponge :)                                        If you want to take part hop along to Unity and enter  here I just had to make another card I just love this stamp I wish I had gotten it sooner it is so versatile. I think it may be my new favourite Unity Stamp :)                                                                           Thanks for visiting :)

Love You - Hot Pink

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 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
