Unity Tuesday Hop {27-Oct-2015}

Hi Everyone! I hope you are well and having a great week so far.  The Unity Warehouse sale continues this week and I have some new and old cards to share made from sets that are on sale this week.

This card is made using this beautiful butterfly stamp - Written in the Wings, and the sentiment from the Layers of Life kit - Hope, Discover, Find.  Both these sets are on sale this week.  I had a bit of fun with the Brusho crystals for the background.

Next is a card with the set Smile in your Dreams which is also on sale.

If you are a fan of Phyllis Harris, you may want to check out this stamp set which is on sale this week - Faith of a Child.

Don't forget to also link up your Unity project this week and leave us some love cos you could win some Unity gift certificates,

Thank you for visiting me.  Have a great day!

Unity Tuesday Hop {13 Oct 2015}

Hello!  It's been awhile since my last post.  I took a trip to visit my parents.  Though it's sad to see them age a little more than the last time but I am so very grateful to be able to spend time with them.  

While I was away, there's lots of new Unity goodies released.  I absolutely love the new KOTM - I say that every time but it's true.  Please, please check it out.
See the flower in the centre?  I think it's my favourite image in the KOTM.

I created this card using watercolour paper and the flowers are coloured with Zig Clean Color pens - No. 021 Light Carmine and No. 043 Olive Green.  It's so easy to achieve a good result just with the Zig pens and a waterbrush.

Next is a little Christmas card using the fun set "Little North Pole".  I always buy too many Christmas papers and end up not having enough time to make the cards.  This is a fast and easy card as the patterned paper scene was perfect with the stamped images.

Thanks for visiting me and for hopping with us.  Be sure to link up your project as Angela has some prizes.... 
Have an Awesome day!!

WMS - Kaboom! More than Coffee!!

Hello!  Today I have another Waltzing Mouse Stamps project to share.  This project uses the recent release We Go Together and dies We go Together, Kaboom, Snowflake One and Stitched Tags.

Quite a number of dies, right?  I love mixing dies with stamps a lot on my cards, and my friends think I'm mad for having hundreds of dies.  I guess this card justifies the dies purchase, yes?

Are you into Planners?  There's a new release of WMS Planner Basics this week!!  Check it out here.

Thanks for visiting me.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Unity Tuesday Hop {11 August 2015}

Hello Friends!  We are shaking things up today in the Unity team hop - so glad you are here!  It's going to be so very exciting with Awesome releases and a release chat.  It's a bummer that the chart starts at the same time I start work - it's now Wednesday morning over here in Australia.  I'm sure you ladies will have a great time and I'll catch up with the chats during my lunch hour :)

Here's my cards using the new set Loving Today!  I think this is my favourite set of the  release.  It's a great set to use with the Misti tool so that the sentiments fit in the frames perfectly.  I love that it is rustic with a great set of sentiments.

My next project uses the new Susan Weckesser's new set - with this set you can create a scene using the flowers, stems, leaves, etc.  Love it!

Here are the cutest little boy and girl stamp sets from the release last week...

Lastly, here is the latest wonderful Angie girl

Wow, this is a long post - I hope you are loving the new stamps!

Thank you for visiting me.  Have a fabulous day and Happy shopping!! {hugs}

WMS - Shaker Card

Today I have another Waltzing Mouse Stamps project to share.  It's always fun to receive a shaker card, though I must admit there's so much fun making them too.

Lately I have been playing with foil and my new minc machine, as a result I am addicted to adding foil on every card I make :) LOL!  I discovered that when you heat emboss sentiments and do not reduce the heat on the Minc machine when adding foil, the embossing powder melts and spreads out. But, if you ink up your stamp once more with Stazon ink or any alcohol based ink and stamp above the foil sentiment, you get a pretty cool efffect.

The sentiment is from the set Your Sparkle and I think it goes so well with the shaker card - for the shaker fill, I used the Peaches and Dream Shaker Mix.  I used the die set Funky Flowsrs to cut the felt flowers and assembled them with a brad.

Thanks for visiting me.  Have a wonderful day!!

WMS Guest Designer - Coffee and Doughnuts

Hello Everyone! I am so very, very excited to be invited as a Guest Designer for Waltzing Mouse Stamps.  Over the next four weeks, I'll be sharing some projects on my blog using their latest release.  I discovered Waltzing Mouse in 2010 and fell in love with their elegant and fun stamps.  Claire, the owner is such a lovely lady and I feel so very honoured.  I hope to do her proud.

Today, I'm using this really cute Doughnut and Coffee set and it has a matching die set too.

Here's my card:
and a little close up view...

The stamped images are coloured with Copic markers.  I hope you like the card.

Thank you for visiting me, and please visit again next week for the another Waltzing Mouse Stamps project.
