Keep Calm

I'm back for this week's FWF from Unity Stamps.  One of my good friends is turning 30 today, so I made him a birthday card using one of my favorite Itty Bitty stamp!  Keep calm and have a beer!!

My coloring leaves a lot to be desired (I don't really have true markers) but I'm sure he'll like the card just the same.  Thanks for stopping by!

FWF Unity Stamps

Another week has gone by and it's time for Friends with Flair yet again!  This week I have chosen to use one of my favorite itty bitties!  Using emboss resist is my new technique I've been trying.  This card just turned out so happy! Thanks for stopping by!

Emboss Resist

I tried out a new technique today, emboss resist.  In white, you heat emboss a stamp onto white paper and then ink over the images to create a background.  Then you wipe clean the white embossing (the raised embossing resists the ink).  Ta-da!
Hi There card.  Made with butterflies.  Teal and blue with a purple card.
 Get Well Soon! in pink and purple.  Dark purple card.

The last 2 are very similar, but I inked the background a little bit different.  Hope you enjoyed!  I had fun making these.

Friends with Flair

As most of my stamping friends know, Unity is my absolute FAVORITE stamp company.  I really really support them (just ask my wallet!).  Every week on their blog, they allow us to showcase our work and show it off to everyone.  Here's what I created for this week using the Kit of the Month from October.

The picture really doesn't do this card justice.  The trees and sentiment are heat embossed with a iridescent embossing powder.  It looks very cool in real life!
