Sympathy Card

 I really love the image from the Sweet n Sassy stamp set Grace. I've actually made two cards this week using this image. In fact the other one is very similar looking to this one lol.

I stamped the Calla Lily image on white card stock but aged it by sponging Archival ink Coffee on it. I used the sketch for From the Heart sketches w/ a twist for the layout. Finally I added the beautiful quote sentiment which is from the Unity Stamp Co. KoM November.

Thinking of You

Today is another crafty day! We've been having beautiful cool weather and it just gets me inspired to create new cards.

On the card below I used the flower stamp from Unity Stamp KoM (Nov kit). The sentiment is a random stamp I probably got from Hobby Lobby or Michaels and is a case with lots of other random sentiment stamps I've collected (lol).

I watercolored the flowers with Twinkling H2O paints (sadly, the shimmer doesnt show up in the pic and I dont think it showed up well on the card itself, but the colors are pretty). I love the contrast of the uncolored portions of the stamp and the colored blocks. It gives it a nice pop of color.

Newest creations

This week has been stressful so I was very excited to get my Happy Mail from Unity Stamp Co! As soon as I could get them out of the shipping envelope I was in my craft room creating.

The first card is a birthday card using the Sabrina Fashionistas stamp set. It's a large stamp so I just stamped in on white watercolor paper and painted it in with both watercolors and some twinkle h2o colors I had to give it some sparkle. I'm afraid the sparkle doesnt show well in the picture.

The second card I created today I used the Monique Fashionistas stamp. This stamp is so gorgeous and I love blank and white wedding cards, so I didnt color it in at all. Looking back, I wish I had black embossed the stamp but it still looks amazing tilted slightly to show the patterned paper behind it (this stamp is huge! about 3x5.25").

I'm not sure if I can enter more than one creation for the Unity stamp Friends with Flair contest, but I think I'm going to try.

Unity {be inspired} Challenge entry (jan)

This is my entry for this month's {Be Inspired} Challenge. The stamp used is one from Dec 2014 Kit of the month. I embossed the stamp image with a light blue powder I had and then glued some sequins and beads I had lying around. I think I love the tile affect on this card and I may have to do it again on some other cards.

I used the color scheme of the challenge seen below.

New project.

Today is a crappy dreary day and of course cold. So nothing better to do but get creative and get some challenge projects done. I think this stamp by From the Heart Stamps is so adorable! It is the stamp for their monthly digi challenge. I also used the sketch from this week's I {Heart} card sketches challenge #93.

This is the sketch for the challenge.

And here is my finished project:

Entry for Unity Stamp {be inspired} challenge

Below is my entry for Unity Stamp {be inspired} Challenge. I used both the color combo and the card layout for inspiration. I used a stamp from the Dec KOTM to make the background and the sentiment stamp is also from the Dec KOTM.

Here are my inspirations from the challenge:
