I had to get the next stamp set, love it! It's a new release from Lawn Fawn and it's called "Screen Time" I'm entering it into the new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is Stencil It! I've stencilled the inside circle with diamonds.
I'd also like to enter it into a new challenge I found called Lawn Fanatics This one is a sketch challenge. I've altered it a little but hope it's ok.
Today we are celebrating Unity's 10th birthday. There are 6 new releases and also a freebie with purchase.
Blissfull Birthday (Freebie w/purchase)
Feel the Freedom (feather) Focus on the Things (camera) Margaret (AngieGirl) You are Forever Beautiful Obsessed with Floral Rectangle Scalloped Border Stamp
You can see them all on the other DT girls blogs.
I've used two of the new releases:
this one is Focus on the Things. I've used Copics to colour the image.
And this one is Feel the Freedom. For this one I used Brushos for the main image and I also used a white pen to fill in some of the details. The background has been made with distress oxides and a variety of Jolanda stamp sets.
So all you have to do now to see all the gorgeous inspiration is to follow the blog hop, don't forget to go to the Unity blog as your last stop!!
I watercoloured the background using some watercolour paints with a wash. The latticed overlay has been made with a die from a Sizzix thinlit set. It is a small panel so I die cut a square of them with 4 panels. The coffee cup has been coloured with Copics.
Hi there it's that time again the Unity Stamp Company blog hop!
We have 5 new Cuddlebugs releasing. They are all available here in the Unity Stamp Company store. Now unfortunately I didn't get to make any projects with them but the other DT girls have done an amazing job on showcasing them. So just follow the list for the blog hop and you'll see them all.
I did get time however to make a page in my planner featuring the set which is being given away as a freebie with each $75 order!! And let me tell you it's a real stunner! I couldn't believe it was a freebie!
But don't worry even if you don't spend the $75 then you can buy Planner Gal for $24.
To start with I took a piece of white card and using the border die from Tim Holtz Stitched Rectangles and edged it. I then cut out the diamond die from the Tim Holtz Mixed Media die set and used it as a stencil with vintage photo distress ink. The little houses and trees are from Tim Holtz City scape, Surburbia set. I've used lots of textures for these. Cork, metallic card, patterned paper and vellum. Then I layered the whole thing onto a blank Kraft card.
Hi there so I decided to make another card for the SSS Wednesday Challenge as I enjoyed making the last one so much lol. As it's their celebrating their 9th birthday the theme for the challenge is Happy Birthday!
Today I've used the set from Mama Elephant called Rain or Shine and also a Blueprint die. All the images have been coloured with Copics and I've used some sparkle pen on the flowers, rainbow and sun. On the little water droplets I've used some liquid glass.
Isn't it gorgeous? To start with I've used two images and one sentiment from the kit on just one card. I'm sure I'll be using more in the coming month!
So I made this mixed media card.
I wanted to get lots of texture on this one so I started off with a layer of cork. (lol it was actually a sunny day in Scotland for a change so I got a bit of a shadow). I also cut out a frame with the cork.
I then took some textured cardstock and stencilled the hexagon pattern onto it with some oxide ink.
The actual front panel is greyboard covered in white top layer so it had the ideal surface to use oxide inks on.
I've used a few different stamps on top including the hive image from the KOTM.
The main image was stamped onto white card and inked. I went over the bee with another layer of the inks but I watercoloured with them.
The sentiment was stamped onto white card and edged with oxide inks.
Just a few sequins to finish off.
Look out for more projects featuring the KOTM in the next few days.
