Friends with Flair...March 27, 2015

It has been a stressful week, but here is my entry into Friends with Flair on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.  For this card I used an Itty Bitty called Spring and Bloom.  The image was colored with Copics and a Faber Castell pencil.  Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week-end!  The sentiment on this card is, spring has sprung.  Unfortunately, that is not the case here in Twinsburg, Ohio.  We had a little snow and wind chills of 16.  Brrrr!

Friends with Flair...March 20, 2015

Welcome Friends!

Today is Friday, so that means I'm participating in Friends with Flair over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.  I am sharing an empowering card.  I am a huge fan of inspirational and empowering sentiments, particularly those offered by Unity Stamp Co.  They by far have the best.  The sentiment stamp is from a Unity Sentiment Kit called Blossom by Blossom.  The image of the woman is from the Unity Stamp Co. March 2011 Kit of the Month called, just you.  I even decorated the inside of this card, something I have not done in a while.  The metal embellishments are Prima.  I colored the woman with Copics.  Thanks for visiting and check out the pics!

Friends with Flair...March 13, 2015

Hey there friends!  I am participating in the Friends with Flair linky party over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.  As mentioned in a prior post, my oldest son has been applying for several scholarships for college.  Several of his teachers have been quite generous in writing recommendations for him, so of course we have to give them thank you cards.  And of course, they are handmade by me.  This is the second thank you.  I decided to go with a totally different card, but similar colors.  This is an A2 size card.  The tag and pocket were free gifts from one of my many purchases from Unity (shhh, don't tell my husband).  The flower stamp is from the  January 2015 Unity Kit of the Month called Magic of Beginnings.  The 'thanks' stamp is from the Flirty Flowers set, also from Unity.  I really like how this card came out!  Thanks for visiting and your comments mean the world to me!  Have an amazing week-end!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Today I am sharing a card where I used masking.  I stepped out of my comfort zone for this card.  See, I have tried masking before and failed miserably.  Even today, it took me about 15 to 20 tries to get it right.  That is why I am just now posting this card.  However, I think I have figured this masking thing out and will use it more often.  The fox stamp and sentiment is an Itty Bitty called My Person from Unity Stamp Company.  The large floral stamp is from the June 2014 KOM called In Love with Love by Unity Stamp Co. as well.  The images were colored with Derwent watercolor pencils.  I am really pleased with how this card came out; I'm glad I stuck with it.  Let me know what you think!  Have an amazing week-end and come back soon!  I am entering this card into the linky party over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.

Keep crafting in peace and love,
