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.

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.

Unity Thursday Hop {9-10-2014}

Hello Unity Peeps!  So glad it's Thursday, and really excited to share the new releases with you.  I am SO in LOVE with the new sets and can't wait to find time to play with them more.

This little cutie snowman really stole my heart! He's super, super cute!!  I thought he would look amazing in bright orange.  Not sure if it was the lighting but the photo looked as though I added some glossy accents on his hat, but honestly it's just plain Copics.  A fluke, perhaps :)

Couldn't resist this other cute image

Lastly, I also pulled out my Derwent Inktense colour pencils to create this little card...

I used a combination of the September KOTM for the background (heat white embossing) and the new Vintage Era Background Kit

We have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to giveaway.  Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win.  The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog.


Thank you for visiting me.

Have a great day!

Thinking of You

Are you loving the new Inspired Stamps release?  Today, I'm sharing another cute Hymn Girls: Sentimental Sign in our Fall Themed Thinking of You card.

She is a larger sized stamp and I love that you can add your own sentiment onto the sign she is holding.  I used the Thinking of You sentiment from the Hymn Girls:Sitting Here Thinking, but there are so many choices of Scripture sentiment which would fit as well.  If you have a bench die-cut I think it would work very nicely with this Hymn Girl as well.

I couldn't help making another card to share.  This one was created using the Hymn Girls:October and the sentiment from Thinking of You set.

I hope you'll visit again tomorrow for my 12 Weeks of Christmas special project.

Have a great day!
