Dream With Your Heart

 This is the first Unity Angie Girl stamp I ever bought and it is my favourite! I paper pieced her and used my coloured pencils. 

  Fussy cut the flowers which are from the same stamp set. Added some Distress Rock Candy Stickles to them to give them some crunch, Liquid Pearls in the centres.

  Cut out the stamped sentiment. Added a couple of wood hearts, which I inked with DI Mahogany. 

  All paper used is from 2 Prima collections. Epiphany and Butterfly.

  The paper bow is TH Bow Tied Decorative Strip die.

  The back. The sentiment is from another Unity Angie Girl set called, Give Love, Laugh Lots.

  There's another weekly challenge on the Unity Facebook page. This week's challenge is: Use any Unity Girl stamps.

  Long Weekend! Woo Hoo! Have a great one! Fire up the BBQ!

  Thanks for stopping by!

Share Your Smile ATC

   Found some pre-cut ATC size canvas in my stash on Sunday and made a project for the latest Unity challenge, "Photo inspiration"

  I don't have any Unity butterflies, but this comes very close! The sentiment is also a Unity stamp from a set which included a dress form. Both sets are from their Itty Bitty line.

  I added 4 colours of Distress Ink to the canvas. Stamped the heart image, then stamped it again on white card stock to colour with pencils. 

  Added some Liquid Pearls, Stickles, and doodling around the edge. This was a quick project, but I like how it turned out!

Sing Your Heart Songs

   I made this card for the May challenge in a Flickr group I'm in. The theme is "Winged Things"

  This is one of the "new to me" stamps I just recently bought. A Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz wood mounted stamp.

  Paper pieced her. Used Washi Tape, drywall tape, a metal button and a Dew Drop. The wooden heart I inked with Distress Ink, Rusty Hinge and added Distress Stickles, Rusty Hinge to give it some "crunch". Used some gold Liquid Pearls to her crown. Little bit of doodling around the edge of the card.

  The inside. Paper used is Basic Grey "Grand Bazaar". Sentiment is from the Stampers Anonymous/TH set called, "Good Thoughts"

  The back and front.

  I also made another card, but I can't post it just yet!

  Had a fabulous time at the crop with my crafty friends! Met some new friends too!

  Have a great week, and thanks for stopping by!

To Fairyland

  I attended a crop yesterday and made this ATC for a Flickr group I'm in. The theme for the May challenge is "Winged Things"

  The cute little fairy is called, "Agnes Ketto" and is from Stamping Bella.

  Used watercolour paper and watercolored pencils for the background. Stamped her, then stamped her again on patterned paper and paper pieced her. 

  Added some Stickles and Liquid Pears, sequins and Dew Drops. 

  The sentiment is from a Crafty Secrets stamp set, called "Fairyland"

  Have a few more of the Ketto stamps. Must make some more ATC's! So cute!

  I made a card too, which I will post later.

  Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're getting inky!

Watercolour Travel Wagon

  Watercolour pencils. Not used much, but I think I'm going to get them out more! I love to go outside the lines when I do use them. Makes it more whimsey!

  These 2 stamps are from Unity and are from their Itty Bitty collection, called "Travel Wagon". This stamp set along with another set, I won "honourable mention" in last week's challenge, "Grey & Teal", which was my last blog post.

  Added some free hand doodling along the sides, and a strip of Washi Tape at the bottom. 

  On the flowers I added Liquid Pearls and Distress Inks. Popped up the 2 larger flowers by paper piecing. A couple of stars added to finish it off.

  This sentiment stamp is from another Unity stamp called "Willow Girl", from their Angie Girl collection. Added some watercolours around the sentiment.

  I adhered some of the Washi Tape to paper and then used a heart punch. A couple of sequins for the corner, and more doodling.

The back

  This card is for the Unity Stamp Facebook challenge this week, called "Itty Bitty". You must use an Itty Bitty stamp. 

  Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're getting crafty!

Frazzled. Teal & Grey Colour Challenge

  There's a weekly challenge at the Unity Stamp Company Facebook page. This week was a colour challenge; Teal & Grey and you must use a Unity stamp.

  The little rag doll is an Itty Bitty stamp, called "Frazzled" and the sentiment is a stamp from "Angie Girl: Dream With Your Heart".

  This was a challenge for me for sure! Didn't have a strip of teal patterned paper or even a decent grey! Used Tim Holtz paper. The base is a tag, shortened, then I added grey and teal and green and blue inks! the piece at the bottom is dark grey, but here it looks brown!

  Added some bling and glitter. Free hand doodling around the edges. She is one of my favourite stamps. Didn't do the back for some reason!

 Hump day is over, and the weekend is in sight!

  Thanks for stopping by! 
Hope you are getting inky!

Peace Out Willow Girl

  Love these Angie Girls from Unity! This one is called "Willow Girl", and she's a hippie! Lol! The sentiment is part of the set. I paper pieced her boots. Coloured her with pencils.

  I used a giant kraft tag and cut to size. All papers used are Recollections Boho (how appropriate!), along with the Washi Tape and enamel dots.

  Peace sign and smiley face are dies from Memory Box, which I layered on paper from the set; black paper for smiley.

  Flower punches are Stampin' Up Boho Blossom (how appropriate!) and a small Daisy punch. Doily dies are Cheery Lynn.

  Liquid Pearls on flower centres and on her belt. Stickles used here and there, along with some sequins. Inked up some seam binding and made a tye dyed look bow.

  The back. This is another sentiment from the set. Heart die is Spellbinders.

  This is for a Unity Stamp Company Facebook colour challenge, and a group on Flickr that I follow, "Love! Handmade cards..." April challenge, "Spring Fling"

  Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're getting inky!

Book Girl

   Love my new Unity stamp set! I call her Book Girl, but the set is called, "Part of the Story"

  Used a Ranger Giant Tag, folded in half. Love using these tags for cards. All paper used is from FabScraps, "Wood Chic" collection. Gives her a Shabby Chic look.

  The checker board chipboard at the bottom is from Blue Fern Studios. I coloured with Gelatos, sprayed with Diamond Glimmer Mist and white washed with a white Gelato. Added some sequins (of course!)

  The dictionary meaning of "Read" is from an old dictionary I found at a yard sale. Very old and brittle. The words are from a Prima booklet, called "Statement Stickers". 

  Added some Distress Tattered Rose to the Seam Binding ribbon.

  I paper pieced her vest. Stamped her on paper from the set; cut; glued. The rest of her I coloured with my pencils. Added some glitter pens here and there, and some cheesecloth along the left side of the card.

  Used SU Boho Blossom and EK Success Daisy to make the flower. Added some Distress Stickles to flower to make it "crunchy". And a little cheesecloth underneath. 

  The inside. This is the sentiment stamp that came with the set.

The back.

  Made this card for the Unity Sketch Challenge on their FB site.

  Hope you are having a great week so far. We got more snow last night! Ugh! 

  Thanks for stopping by and hope you're getting crafty!
