Unity heart



Hello Stampers!

I picked up some awesome new supplies at Scrappin' Great Deals last week - and have had so much fun playing with them this weekend!

I love Unity stamps in general - and the Magnuson's who own the company are sweethearts.  But this little cutie is my new fave!  I also grabbed this new Memory Box die - and I thought they went so well together.  Combined with the newest sentiments set from Paper Smooches - and we have a card!  I am also loving the Prima Engraver line.  Have you seen it yet with all it's coordinating elements?   Gorgeous!  

Happy Stamping!

Hello Stampers!

If you don't already know, I am a huge fan of the Uptown Girls stamps by Stamping Bella.  I love colouring the images, giving the cards to friends, teaching classes with the stamps ... they are so much fun.  I especially like the sentiment that came with this particular stamp!

I've coloured these girls with my Copics as usual - on X-Press It paper.

Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black & Rich Cocoa
Paper:  Crate Paper 6x6 in pad Fourteen

Peachy Magnolia



Hello Stampers!

Here is a little Tilda I coloured last week while working on Valentine's cards!  I've been working hard on my ribbon techniques - and feeling much more comfortable with my Bow-easy (what a wonderful little tool).  I've tried to keep the colours pretty soft here, and of course my latest fave thing - a little postage stamp on the corner of the image (this one is Tim Holtz) in Distress Ink (Antique Linen).  I actually took the time to emboss my Nestabilities die this time too - which I rarely do.


Supplies:
Stamps:  Magnolia Tilda with Big Ice Cream
Paper:  Kaiser Craft 6 1/2" paper pad Sweet Nothings
Markers:  Copic
Die:  Cheery Lynn 
Ink:  Tim Holtz distress inks (Antique Linen & Tattered Rose)
Flowers, ribbon:  my stash
Adhesive:  3M Scotch ATG & Scotch Scrapbookers Glue
Additional:  Twinklets Diamond Dust (on roses) & Diamond Stickles (on heart)


Happy Monday!
