Delicate flowers (Unity)

I used water colour pencils for the first time on this card. I did it as an after thought and next time I will definitely use thicker card stock or water colour paper :D. But I was careful with the water and it didn't wobble too badly.


I used Unity's January 2014 Kit of the Month.

More Unity goodness: Cupcake

I finally got some time (squeezed in) to play with my newest Unity kit (January 2014 - Yes, I know....).  Here's a simple cupcake paper pieced card for a little girl:

More inspired by Unity - shadow stamping

Another Unity Be Inspired card!  This one I turned on its side and kept it clean. I made 6 of these for men's birthdays and used shadow stamping by just stamping off to the side after stamping the front tree:



Tree:  Unity September 2013 kit
Sentiment: Happy Birthday itty bitty

Unity "Be Inspired" - "finger painting" birthday

I finally get a chance to play along in Unity's Be Inspired challenge!

Here's the card sketch:

I kept the layers the length of the card:

Used: http://unitystampco.com/shop/kind-beautiful/

To colour the flowers, I used my little finger and rubbed it lightly on a distress ink pad (barn door) and rubbed from the bottom of the flower outwards. I had to make 6 of these cards so that saved time but I also like how it came out!

DS4J Challenge #90: Easter / Spring

It's that time of year again and a time I personally do not take for granted.  Digistamps4Joy is hosting a Easter / Spring challenge and I chose Easter because it is so important.

The background was stamped with a Chiswick background stamp and once I started stamping I only realised they look like little crosses!

Main image: Floral Cross

Sentiment: My own and quoted from "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13

and related to this verse:

1 John 3: 16: "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us."

Please join us at Digistamps4Joy!

PS: If you are a brother or sister in Christ I wish you a joyous celebration in remembering our Saviour's Grace and Mercy in His sacrifice!! May we be reminded of the great price that was paid for us.  Not by works but by Faith!
