Unity Thursday Hop {22-10-2014}

Time to hop with Unity!!  This week, there's some Awesome new releases just in time for Christmas and the holidays.  If you are thinking of making Christmas cards, you gotta go shopping :)

This has got to be one of my fave Angie girl set - Christine.  Love her outfit and the beautiful sentiment.  She is coloured with Copics (R39, R37, R35, R32, E13, E01, E50, E99, E15, E13) and I added some fine glitter on the white bits of her outfit, hat and boots.

Next is this cute little deer...

Check out all the Reindeer stamps at the Unity store!

That's all from me, hope you'll enjoy the hop!

Take care!

Scripture Tag

Hello, today I have a simple tag project to share using Inspired Stamps Scripture set John 10:17-18 and Laying Sheep.

The Scripture is stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  When cool I added some Distress stains on the tag and spritzed some shimmer sprays on it.  The little lamb was stamped on white cardstock and cut out and adhered to the tag with some pop dots.  For some interest, I added a couple of bells at the ends to the twine.

Thank you for visiting me.  Have a great day!

Unity Thursday Hop {16-10-2014}

It's my favourite day of the week! I'm positive you will love the Awesome Phyllis Harris Unity releasing today and I can't wait to share them with you.

How about some non-traditional Christmas colours?  Always partial to orange and blue colour combo, and thought it would be nice to try that on a Christmas card.

Look forward to hear what you think... :)

Next is a more traditional Christmas card.

Love how serene this little girl looks.  It has been so hot this week, and I'm half wishing for some winter weather ;)

That's it from me, and I'm sure you can't wait to finish the hop and shop!

Thank you for visiting me.

WMS Pajama Party - Oct 2014

Hello!  Today I have a WMS card to share, and playing along with the WMS Pajama Party.  Love the new stamps and I received them just in time yesterday.

I didn't have much time to make all the cards I had hoped to but it's ok.  I really LOVE the new snowflake dies and in some ways my card works for two of the challenges - Texturise it and Snow is Falling.

I used the snowflake dies to emboss the blue cardstock and stamped the snowflakes with Memento Luxe, Wedding Dress - I am really loving this inkpad, see how white the ink is.

I've been wanting to use this older set for a long while on a one layer card.  So, here it is:

To add a little interest, I used the coordinating die and embossed the top edges of the mountain scene.  Here's the close up...

That's all I managed to make this time.  Looking forward to see everyone's amazing projects.

Thank you for visiting me.

12 Weeks of Christmas Cards

Hello Everyone!  I hope you are following the Inspired Stamps 12 Weeks of Christmas Cards!  This week, I'm having some fun with Stencils.  Stencils are so hot right now - though I'm not into mixed media, I can't help but have some fun with them.

There are so many fun ways you can use a stencil.  The easiest method I think is using Spritz with the stencil.  Here I've used a chevron stencil and spritzed some gold and clear shimmer sprays.  It's not perfectly even and there's some splatters of ink but it's ok.

Next, I played with Embossing paste.  Place a stencil over the cardstock.

Spread a thin layer of Embossing paste over the stencil. I also spritzed some shimmer sprays over the Embossing paste.  Then lift the stencil from the cardstock.

 Here's the end result.  Let it dry for about an hour before using.

And here are the cards using the above stencil techniques:

The stamps I used are HLO Angel and the Scripture sentiment Luke 2:13-14, and you can see the chevron stencil piece behind the stamp images.

For this card, I used the Scripture sentiment Luke 2:11 with the Embossing paste piece in the background.

I hope you'll try these techniques with stencils and have a great weekend!

Thank you for visiting me.
