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!

Couture Birthday Card

  Love this collection! Almost out of it! It's Graphic 45 Couture line. Made this for a special lady who loves G45 Ladies Diary and Couture papers. She celebrated her birthday a couple weeks ago.

  Flowers are from Prima. Added some tulle, Dew Drops, and a feather. The sentiment is from one of the sheets in the collection. The flower on the bottom left was made with some small punches and paper from the collection.

  Close up. I had 2 of the "Gorgeous" pieces so with one, I cut out the hat and then popped it up on the one I used on the card. Added some Distress Rock Candy on the flowers to make them "crunchy".

  The inside. 

The back

  Friday is finally here! Have a wonderful weekend! Hope you're getting inky! Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Card Swap: 2 Cards!

  I'm in a card swap with some local scrappers. The theme is "Spring". I made 2, so I will be getting 2 in return. The swap is through Classic Hobbies, a paper craft store in the Valley, hosted by owner, Pam.

 This little winged gal, is one of my favourite TH/Stampers Anonymous stamps! Paper pieced her and used paper from my stash. Added some drywall tape, sequins, paper punched a flower, and added some free hand dots and dashes around the edge of the card.

  The inside. The butterfly sentiment stamp is from the Darcie's Rubber Stamps, Take Wing set, and spring stamp is from Michael's $1.50 bin. Added some butterfly tissue tape and more paper strips.

Spring Finery

  Loved making this one! My entry for a March challenge on a Flickr group I belong to. The theme is "Bring the Spring Bling"

  New stamp set by Dina Wakley. Stamped her on cardstock, then used my coloured pencils and Gamsol. Fussy cut her and then glued her down on card base. 

  Added some Distress Stickles, sequins and glitter pens. I rarely use a card base that is not kraft or black. This is cream and I was very careful not get it dirty! Lol!

  The sentiment is from me. I typed it out in Word then printed out on heavier paper. Coloured each word with pencils and then used Gamsol to spread evenly. Outlined each word with black pencil, then cut out. Tissue tape around the edges.

  The inside. Sentiment stamp is from Michaels $1.50 bin, this year. The lovely legs and shoe stamp is from the same Dina Wakley stamp set.

And the back

  Great fun! Maybe there's time to make another one before supper! The snow has finely stopped! Hope you're getting inky!

A butterfly get well wish

 Got messy with this one! Used Gelatos, baby wipes, my fingers and Glitter Glue!

 Made this for my friend, Lisa, who had a terrible fall, and loves butterflies! 

  Trying to make one layer cards (sort of!). Love this stamp and die combo set from Tim Holtz and Sizzix. The sentiment is from Stamping Bella, and Tissue Tape is TH. With a black pen I drew lines and dots all around the card; inside; outside and back. Last, but not least, sequins!

  Inside. Sentiment stamps are Stampers Anonymous / TH "Simple Sayings"

The back.
