GIU Gal ~ Day 2

I am so excited and honored to be the Growing in Unity Gal this week! Each day I will post a creation I have made using stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  I am choosing different coloring/stamping methods to share with you throughout this week.  Today's technique is white colored pencil on kraft.
  I stamped the Unity Hey There...Wise Guy stamps in black on a large kraft tag-it and simply shaded in areas with a white colored pencil.  I then distressed the edges of the tag with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink and added a Trendy Page Dot and Totally Black Trendy Twine to the tag.  The card base features patterned papers from DCWV's Treasures stack, burlap ribbon and GMD Sophisticated Enamel dots.

GIU Gal ~ Day 1

I am so excited and honored to be the Growing in Unity Gal this week! Each day I will post a creation I have made using stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  I am choosing different coloring/stamping methods to share with you throughout this week.

Since yesterday was my birthday, I went with a birthday themed card to share for Day #1.
The focal point on this card is the delicious cupcake tower stamp from the Unity KOM 2/17 Unexpected Places.  I stamped it with VersaFine Onyx Black and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then colored the image with colored pencils and die cut around it with a GMD scalloped stitched rectangle.  The patterned papers are from Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6x6 paper pad.  I embellished with a yellow/white ribbon and GMD Mai Tai enamel dots.

SumMore Fun Mood Board #22

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the SumMore Fun blog with a new mood board (you can see it at the bottom of this post). Here is what I created for inspiration!
I started with the Large Stemmed Daisy (2151-H) stamp.  I stamped it in black and used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to fussy cut around it, and to create the shadow layer behind it as well.  I also used that daisy stamp with Distress Oxide inks in Worn Lipstick, Candied Apple, and Fired Brick to create the floral background on the card base.  I added a Kaisercraft Mandala Die Cut onto the card base and then popped the daisy up on that.  I watercolored the daisy with Distress Oxide inks.
 
I stamped the Kindness is to the Heart What Sunshine is to the Flowers sentiment onto vellum using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and embellished with enamel dots.
Here is a look at the current mood board:

You can enter using the theme, pictures, or colors. Lots of choices! Head on over to the SumMore Fun blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s. We can't wait to see your take on the current Mood Board.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello all and Happy Valentine's Day!  The Trendy Twine DT have projects to share with you on the Twine It Up blog, so stop over there for wonderful inspiration.  Here is what I created to share with you today.
I started with a kraft card base and scored around all four sides to add a little visual interest.  I wanted the Wee Glassine Envelope to be the focal point of this card, so I kept the rest of the card simple.  I added several die cut hearts in red and pink in the Wee Glassine Envelope and floating above it.  I also stamped hearts in white from the You & Me planner stamp set.  I wrapped Cherry Latte Trendy Twine around the card front and the glassine envelope.  I just love the look of kraft and red together!  The final touches were the sentiment in black ink from the You & Me planner stamp set and some white gel pen doodling.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
