Friends with Flair: Cheerful Poppies

Welcome to Friends with Flair! Remember to visit the Unity blog to see the full list of entries, comment on each one and be entered for a prize. In fact, make sure you comment on yesterdays Hip Hop blogs to win a prize, too - I won some great stamps and papers last week!

I think I have far too many flower stamps in my collection. Is there even such a thing as too many flowers? Nah! I've been longing after the Donna Poppies set for a looooong time and finally broke down when I saw them on sale. I have so many ideas of how to use them, but today I just wanted to get them inky on a quick card. These are so pretty and HUGE that it was simple to make a CAS card and let the flowers take center stage! This was the smaller silhouette stamp.

The next time I make a card like this, I think I'll just randomly stamp the poppies all over a large piece of cardstock, then cut it to the sizes I need to make multiples super fast!

Thank you for stopping buy today. Have a terrific weekend!

Friends with Flair - quick labels!

Welcome back to another week of Friends with Flair! Make sure you visit the Unity blog to see all the customer projects this week - leave a comment on each one to enter for a prize!

This week I needed some labels for our church's ladies retreat. We are making our own bath salts, and I thought it would be nice to dress up the canister with a homemade label.

I love the Blossom Stackers set and coordinating Spellbinders die! It made it so easy to whip up these labels. Some of them are monochromatic, and some use complimentary colors. So easy!

Have a super weekend!

FWF: A new spin on an old favorite

I made a card about a year ago that I just love and has become a customer favorite in my Etsy shop. When Unity decided to run a week-long tag challenge on Facebook, I decided to take the card as inspiration and make it into a tag.

Unity stamps: A Moment in Time, My True Joy and SHE-art print texture; Ranger Distress inks: Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, Worn Lipstick; Sugar Creek Hollow Ribbon: Candy Apple

Make sure you visit all the Friends With Flair blogs, comment and be entered for a prize! Want another chance to win? Whip up something with your Unity stamps and link up your project before midnight!

Thanks for visiting!

FWF: Groovy Day

Hello! I'm glad you stopped by today. I haven't had much time lately for stamping, but I did manage today to crank out a card. I really need to do more birthday cards, so I pulled out my "Something Groovy" stamp and some hippie-ish Basic Grey paper. See?

Stamps: ippity by Unity Something Groovy; dsp: Basic Grey Lime Rickey

I used the sketch from Mojo Monday and used markers to color the VW and "GROOVY" for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

Have a GROOVY weekend!

Grateful: My First PTI

Hello! I had some time to get inky, so I made a CAS thank you card using my one and only PTI set. I have long admired PTI stamps, but I really can't afford them most of the time. I happened to get this set second-hand from someone who was reducing their stash. Lucky me!

I'm playing along with PTI's Make It Monday #99: Repeats and Rainbows.

Stamps: PTI Spots & Dots, Unity Simple Blessings; inks: Memento inks in Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky, Pear Tart and Lilac Posies, Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Spiced Marmalade

I don't have any PTI inks, so I used a mix of Memento and Distress Inks to get as close as I could to one of the color schemes we were asked to follow. I masked off a strip where I wanted the stamping, then used a Unity stamp for the sentiment and a few rhinestones to give it a bit more interest.

Thanks for stopping by today, and have a wonderful day!

Friends with Flair: Treats!

Hello, there! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Did you comment on the other FWF posts? If not, you can get the full list at Unity's blog. Remember that Unity will be choosing a random commenter from one of the posts to win a prize!  :D

With the holidays behind us, I've been turning my attention to the next couple of months - Valentine's, to be exact! I wanted to make up some treat bags that would be pretty simple and quick since they will likely last only long enough for someone to rip it open to get to the candy (at least, I probably would)!

Stamps: Unity kit Cuter Than Most

I dry embossed the lighter colored cardstock at the top of the treat bag, but it didn't show up very well. I think I may make more of these, but with a wider strip for the top of the bag. These little guys are just too cute!

Thanks for hopping along, and remember to comment on ALL the blogs for the best chance to win some Unity! Have a terrific weekend!
