Friends of Unity Hop, September 2022, Coffee, Tea, and Cocoa
Did I mention that today is my birthday? I didn't. Well it most certainly is and I want to share my birthday joy. This month I am giving away a prize pack which includes a rainbow vibes paper pack, two Itty Bittys (holiday hugs and bright wishes) and the Thanks So Mush set. So be sure to comment on all our blogs to be eligible to win this prize pack or a prize from one of my Friends.
Let's get to my cards. First up:
Isn't she gorgeous? I just love Angie girls...don't you? This lovely is from, a Little Warmth; perfect for fall cards. The sentiment is from Anemone Greetings. This card came to together pretty easily with the addition of paper, stickers, and a die from Photo Play. She was colored with colored pencils. I also added a few enamel dots from Gina Marie and an acetate leaf die cut from 49 and Market.
Now for my second card. I almost scrapped this one. See if you can locate my blunder on this one. I decided to pull out my gelli plate. I've only played with it a couple times. I definitely need to practice more. I've seem so many beautiful backgrounds created with gelli plates.
Actually, I thought my gell print came out fine. I placed it in my Misti and stamped the image several times. Well, when I went to ink the stamp one time, I accidentally inked my image directly with my ink pad. Oh no! Crap! That's why the square is above the coffee cup. I decided that I liked my gell print too much to scrap it, so I worked with it. I cut the stamped, gell print with a stitched circle die. I think it turned out ok. I'm not happy with it, but it works. To create the gelli print, I used a couple different paints and spread them with my brayer. I then placed my Maker Forte Stencil Vansi Makes Swirl Art Marks on plate. I squeezed some white and pink paint over the stencil and spread with brayer. I let it dry overnight. The next day I stamped the image from a past Layers of Life, Revive December 2018. It is such a cool image. The sentiment is from the January 2022 Kit of the Month, found in the heart.
Well friends, I need to get some rest so I can enjoy my day. But, before I go. here are all our links.
Well, that's a wrap. See you next month.
