First up I have a card made using the kit Rebuild Your Life. I absolutely love the flower and sentiments in this kit! 
Picture
 I used the background stamp Harlequin Poetry from Unity as well. I stamped it out twice, cut, and lined it up in the die cut black frame. I added the ribbon to hide the fact that it was stamped on two pieces of paper. Shhh...don't tell. No one will ever know! The background stamp was not as big as I needed. So I improvised. Then I stamped, colored, and cut out flower and added sentiment.



Next up is spring to go kit! 
Picture
For this card, I kept it simple. I did some quick coloring with copic markers Cut it out and added some pretty pattern paper for the background.
 It's a card to go! Sweet, simple, and fast! 


Let's be happy kit!

Happy Sunday!

With Valentine's Day just around the corner. I thought I would share with you a quick card I made for my husband using Unity stamps!

I am a big fan of the Kit of the Month from Unity Stamp Company. the kits are just amazing! Unity truly nailed it with this month's kit! If you don't know about the monthly memberships from Unity, head on over and take a peek. You won't be disappointed! You can do that here.

I kept this card pretty simple. I stamped out image in pigment black ink on watercolor paper. Heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Stamped the sentiment inside the world. Also in black pigment ink and heat set with clear embossing powder! I used my Mijello water colors to paint image. Die cut out panels. One with image and a bigger mat in black. Added some simple washi tape and a thin black ribbon. I used foam tape to adhere image panel to black panel. To add a little some depth. Then adhered to green card panel. Easy peasy Valentine card for hubby! I hope he likes it! 
Here is the February kit that I used! Isn't this just awesome!
This is the inside! I used a sentiment from December's Kit of the month. I thought that it matched perfectly. Unity seriously has some of the best sentiments! That wraps up my manly Valentine Day card using Unity stamps!

Hello, thanks for joining me.

This project I made with the amazing Lux girl from Unity Stamp company. You can find her here. She was so much fun to color as all Unity stamps are. I love the details in their stamps! I was inspired by the color challenge over at Splitcoast stampers. Wearing denim eating melons and pears and for dessert, use something new. Which, was perfect because I just got Lux girl in the mail and couldn't wait to ink her up! 
Here are the colors for the challenge. 
Picture
My card was chosen as a favorite! You can go check that out in the forum. Click link below. Code is CC616
Picture
I die cut out card panel with Tim Holtz mixed media set #2. You can find thathere.
Then die cut again using a stitched die from My favorite Things. Stamped out Lux girl so I could get the background of the stamp. Stamp her out again to color and cut. Placed card panel to base. Then added girl and sentiment with pop dots. Added a few jewel embellishments. 

Supplies used:
Card base: Stampin Ups Pacific Point
Card panel: Stampin Ups whisper white
Markers: Copic
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and SU's Pear Pizzazz
Dies: My Favorite Things- stitched rectangle and Sixxix tim Hotlz mixed media set #2
Pop dots
jewel embellishments
ATG tape and multi medium matte glue

Hello, Thank you for joining me.

 It has been very cold in my stamping ground of Montana! It was -27 today. If you factor in the wind chill it was -46. So, it was a good day to stay in and craft!

For my project today I used the snowman and one of the sentiments from Holiday Hugs from My Favorite Things. I also used stamps from visible image.
The script background stamp is unknown. If you know who makes it, please let me know. My mom picked up it up at a thrift store for me and it is not marked at all. So, I have no idea who made it. It is a wonderful stamp for backgrounds. 

I was trying really hard to keep this clean and simple but it was a challenge for me. I love CAS cards but, have a hard time making them myself. I hope I achieved a bit of a CAs card here. Honestly, most of the time, I grunge and distress my cards to cover up mistakes. like big old thumb prints or I set my card in left open ink pad. I really am organized I swear...lol! 
Anyways, for this card I stamped the edgy stamp from visible image in Pool Party ink from Stampin Up. Then I added the script background, stamped in Smoky Slate also from Stampin up. I stamped the snowmen where he was going to be on the card. I then stamped him again on white card stock to color and then cut out. I used my copic markers to color him. The Colors I used are:
C0, c1, c3, c5, c7, BG11, BG45, y17, yr15, R29, and R89. I added a few small snowflakes from Hero Arts. Then silver sequins and red jewels.
For the sentiment I used my favorite trick for a quick banner. I used my hexagon punch from stampin up. It works amazing for small quick banners! Just use the edge of the hexagon punch. Line it up so it's center. Then punch. How easy is that! Give it a try. It is an amazing little trick! You will banner everything for awhile. Okay, maybe that is just me! Then I sponged the banner in Pool Party. This is where I lost trying to keep it clean and simple. Fighting everything in me to not distress, grunge, or rip something. I love a torn edge on a card. 
Here is the inside. I just stamped a few small snowflakes from Hero Arts and for the back I got this stamp from Unity stamp Co. and I absolutely love it! 

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Supplies used:
Pool Party from stamin up. Card base and ink.
Smoky Slate from stampin up. Card matting and ink.
Memento black ink
Neenah solar white card stock #80
Copic markers
Hexagon punch
corner punch
silver sequins
red jewels
ATG tape and glue dots

Anyways, this project I made for today is from Unity Stamp Company!
I just love this little coffee cup. He is so cute! The kit he is in is call One little latte. I also used a couple of snowflakes from different Unity kits for the background. Very Merry Christmoose, snowflake kisses, and a joyous season sentiment kit. The sentiment is from October's kit of the month also from Unity. I combined this holiday/winter coffee theme with Unity's color challenge on their Show and Tell Facebook page.

We got snow! It snowed most of the day here in Montana! It was lovely...I love the snow! It was a good day to spend inside working diligently on my Christmas cards! Although we did venture out for a dog walk and some fun in the snow!
For this project I used a Unity stamp
Picture
This cute little bird is from Unity's, The best like ever kit. So cute I just love this little bird. I wanted the snowflakes coming out of the coffee cup to kinda look like steam. I am Not sure if I achieved it but, I like how it turned out non the less. I used part of the sentiment from Altenew's coffee ring set. I masked it so I just got the coffee. Then I paired it with the sentiment that came in the Unity kit! The little coffee cup die came form Stampin up's cups and kettle framelits.

 That is all for me today! Happy hoppin!

It's day two of the best blog hop around! The Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Click below and check out all the deets and link up your winter/holiday coffee projects! There are some excellent prizes packages to be won!
For today I used another Unity stamp for this project. It is brand new to the line and I just love it. It is illustrated by Angie Blom who does incredible work. Go check out her blog. It is great. I love all of her designs.
Picture
For this project. I made a coffee gift card holder using Joy to go kit from Unity. This card holder was giving me some problems. I had the idea of making the pockets out of the two die cuts. I thought if I put a thin enough glue line it would fit my insert that holds the coffee card. It became problematic so instead of scrapping the whole project I just used washi tape. Yay, washi tape for the win! I still think it turned out well and it functions, so that is a plus! I colored the coffee cup with copic markers. I cut out and placed on card holder. I had the image stamped out on the base. So I could get the snow around the coffee cup and the ground. I used glue dots to adhere the cup and glossy accents to finish it off. Added the sentiment and viola! Coffee gift card holder!

Picture
Here it is pulled out! The dies that I used are form My Favorite Things called Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner Stax. Say that 10 times fast..lol. The insert is cut slightly smaller then the dies cuts. I adhered on some pattern paper to card stock, used a white eyelet, and added the ribbon. I just cut some slits for the card to slip into. Also used Tim Holtz snowfall embossing folder.

Here is my winter holiday coffee card! This was so much fun to make. I used the girl from Dream of being kit. I colored her with my copic markers. I did add a wink of stella to her sweater but, it's hard to see in the picture. I used an oval die, masked her and stamped the background, and distressed the edges. 

Picture
I used Snowfall background stamp from My Favorite Things on Cheery Cobbler card stock from Stamin UP. I also used snowflake dies from Tim Holtz. I ran them through an embossing folder to add texture to them. Oh...you can kinda see the glitter on her sweater in this picture! 

Picture

I used Reverse Confetti all framed up die for the frame on, in Stampin up's Wild Wasabi card stock. The sentiment is from Unity's October's kit of the month. 
Picture
Here is the inside of the card. The little snowflakes and sentiment is also from Unity. Merry Christmas is from October's Holiday Hugs kit of the month and the snowflakes are from October's a joyous season sentiment kit

Happy World Card Making Day!

Yes, us card makers are that awesome. We get our own day!
How could I not resist from making something. 

Picture
I took a break from my chores and made this card up! I just recently bought some Dylusions ink spray. what a good day to experiment and have some fun! I also, recently got the bird set from Dylusions as well. So, I thought I could play with them both today! The sentiments from this set is just hilarious to me. It reminds me of an episode from Portlandia! Any Portlandia fans out there? 


Here is the set that I used from Dylusions. 
Quick How To:
I sprayed watercolor paper with the Dylusions ink spray in crushed grape, vibrant turquoise, and lemon zest. Misted with water and let set for a few minutes then soaked up excess with paper towel. The water will take away the ink and will be lighter in color. It gives it a messy distressed look. The water also helps blend the colors. I then used a layering stencil from Tim Holtz and some texture paste from Ranger for the sun burst. I let the paste dry then added some distress ink on it to give it some color. When I was waiting for the paste to dry I stamped and colored the bird with my copic markers and cut it out as well as the sentiment. Used some 3d foam squares for the bird and sentiment and adhered to card panel and then to card base.
