Suzi Blu canvas

This is something I made late December/early January but never got around to blogging it... a little canvas using Unity Stamps.

I used acrylic paints for the background and also did a lot of stamping with paints. The focal image is a Suzi Blue stamp with that sentiment I love so much - "I am a creative girl, I have the right to make my mark, I deserve a rewarding creative life." Love, love, love!

I made this as a gift for a friend who is definitely a creative girl.

Unity February KOM challenge card

Hello! New week...

And almost a new month, but just before it closes, I made a card for Unity Stamp Company's February Kit of the Month sketch challenge.

This is the sketch:

And this is my interpretation of it:

The little birdies and the sentiment are stamps from January 2012 Unity Kit of the Month. I paper-pieced the birds for a pop of colour. The papers are more new My Mind's Eye from the On the Bright Side collection. Love those fresh summer colours!

Supplies: Unity Stamps, My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side One and Two 6x6 paper pads, Spellbinders label die, Archival Ink (Sepia), Distress Ink (Tea Dye), brown ribbon, blue cardstock. 

Have a great week!

A good day.

It's a good day to have a good day.
It's a Friday! And the weather is spring-like and gorgeous. After many darker months, there is finally NATURAL LIGHT to take photos in! Just a few reasons why today really has been a good day.

That stamp is one of the new Unity co-brand Authentique releases. I just love it! 

Just to make it better, go look at all the creative projects linked at Unity Friends With Flair Friday!

Back and published.

I know, I know. It's been ages since I last blogged anything.

But, what better way to come back than with a card that got published?!
I was in Craft Stamper February 2012 issue, on the "Over To You" pages with a Craft Stamper inspired project.

This was the card:

I loved the "crinkled ink" technique that inspired my card. It's super simple and fun to do. It was explained in November 2011 Craft Stamper.

I've used some of my favourite stamps from Unity Stamp on this. Thought the catching dreams stamp was a fun contrast to the butterflies!
