Itty Bitty Challenge

So...over at facebook I'm in this Unity Stamps group called Unity {show & tell}. Well someone issued a challenge to create one card or tag everyday using an Itty Bitty Unity stamp. So I decided to join in the fun!

 Day 1 card:
I used Direction of Your Heart stamp for this one. I layered some Studio Calico Abroad papers, a couple washi strips, a tag, and a piece of epoxy from Epiphany Crafts.

 
Day 2 card:
I really like this one. I used Direction of Happy stamp right on top of a WRMK Albums Made Easy journaling tag. Added another Epiphany Crafts epoxy and gold mini sequins. Layered over a doily, some MME papers, and Mr. Huey's mist in Passport.

 
Day 3 card:
I used some Colorbok papers as my base layer, fussy cut the LIFE bingo card stamp, added some Offray lace ribbon and a SU die-cut doily, fussy-cut butterfly, and the sentiment is a stamp from a Unity KOM that I can't remember right now.
 
It's been challenging creating every single day. But it's been fun!

oh hello

Today I've got a little card for The Play Date Café challenge.
 
The challenge is to use black, white, and a splash of neon yellow.
 
I took a black card base, splashed on white mist, a couple layered stickers, and yellow sequins.
 
  Quickest card ever. Only because I thought it was due tonight! It turns out I still have two days.
Well....at least it's done!
 
Thanks for stopping by today!

smile

Here's a quick little card I threw together. Actually, I stamped a bunch of these tags so you will probably be seeing them a lot. :) I'm sure you recognize it from my last post too!
 
 I used one of my absolute favorite Unity stamps called Insightful Meadows. I have almost a bajillion Unity stamps {well, maybe really only a gazillion} but I use this one like 50 percent of the time.
 
I sprayed some mist onto my craft mat and used it as ink to stamp the flowers in three colors.
That smile button that looks like flair is actually an epoxy embellishment I made with my Epiphany Crafts tool. I have been putting those things on everything lately.
 
Since the spray mists are water-based I bet these would qualify for the watercolor challenge over at The Paper Girls dontcha think? Maybe you should come play with us too! I'll have a fab prize up for grabs. :)
 
Thanks for stopping by today!

Water color projects

Hi crafty friends!
I've got several water colored projects today thanks to my current watercolor challenge over at The Paper Girls.
 
First up is this fun layered card. I applied the water color directly to my stamp and stamped several colors onto the tag. Then I layered it over several papers and added the sequins and Epiphany Crafts epoxy.
 
Then I painted my background for this layout using yellow, blue, and tan. I sprinkled some salt onto the tan while it was wet to get some texture on it and rubbed it off once dry.
 
And lastly, I stamped this image and then used watercolor pencils and a water brush to color it in.
 (psst...this card's for sale in my shop)
 
Thanks for stopping by today.
I really hope you will join in on the fun. I've got a prize for one lucky winner!

You are strong


Hello Unity friends! And Happy Friday!
 
I loved this stamp as soon as I saw it.
 
 I'm not quite sure what I plan on using this card for but I really like the sentiment and the simpleness of the card design.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by today!


I made more than one and it's for sale in my shop. :)
