Unity Friends with Flair - April 29

OK, so I think that is pretty fun that you can join in the the Unity Friends with Flair hop any week that you would like. And their stamps are so cute, why wouldn't I want to join in? For my card, I used a stamp from the Feb '11 Kit of the Month. I colored my image with Faber-Castell gelatos, over an old page from a book.

Chapel Road Stamps Inspiration

I'll be the first to admit - I'm really not a Clean and Simple kind of girl....but tonight I did make a CAS card - and really had fun. I wanted to try a new technique (for me) using my Behold the Rose stamp set from Chapel Road stamps. I stamped my image onto the rose colored cardstock using Versamark ink - and embossed it with clear embossing powder. After this was heat set, I colored the non embossed areas using a paintbrush and bleach. To me, it was just so cool to see the color lift off of the paper.

You still have almost a week left to play along with our current challenge - Fancy Fold cards. You don't have to use a Class Act/ Chapel Road stamp, but we would love to see what you do with them!

Believe You Can Fly

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend! I had an extra day off, so a little extra time to craft! This week we will be wrapping up our things with wings challenge at the Beary Scrap. You have until April 30th to get your entry in.

This has been such a fun challenge! Today, I used the lovely Butterfly Garden from Pink Paislee. Even the wooden dragonfly is from this line. Now, I did do quite I bit of altering on it! I used Stickles, Glimmer Mist, Smooch - and then sanded it all to distress it a bit. I also used some of the yummy seam binding that Kimm just got in the store. I am really going to be stocking up on that stuff - it just makes a project look so great! My sentiment is from Unity Stamps.

I hope you have a great week!

Sketch Challenge at Belles n Whistles

Good morning! I just wanted to share my card for the new challenge at Belles n Whistles! I used one of our new stamps, A Blossom for You.

My papers are new from Cosmo Cricket. I just love this vintage feel. You have two weeks to play along with us, for your chance to win a BnW stamp of your choice.
