This month the challenge at Dragonfly Dreams is sponsored by Imagine That. The theme is Up, Up in the Air: clouds, birds, kites, balloons, butterflies. If you are like me you are ready for Spring! Here is my card:
Here are the items I used from Imagine That. I used the Birds in Spring kit specifically Psalm 118.24. I also used the Spring in Bloom Digi Papers specifically Leaf Floral, Dotty Blues, and Cherry Blossoms coral. I loved this set. I used my Copics to color the image. Here is the list of Copics that I used: B-0000, BG-01, BG-34, E-23, E-25, E-27, E-29, R-20, R-24, YG-23, and YG-25. I used Spellbinders Grand Label One to cut out the image. I hope that you will join us at Dragonfly Dreams for a fun challenge. Please go visit Kris at Imagine That and look at all of the really nice images that she has. I was not aware of her site before now and perhaps you weren’t either.
Please go to Dragonfly Dreams and check out the wonderful cards that the rest of the DT made as well. They are a very talented group of women. Until we meet again…Ciao…
March is one of the busiest months for our family and birthdays! In fact my birthday is in March too! I wanted to share two of my Unity cards on here so I can get them in the mail so they won’t be late.
This one is for my sweet daughter-in-law. She is the first of four of our children to turn the same age. I’m not going to tell her age because it is bothering her this year. But she has her birthday March 1, then my youngest son has his October 5th, his girlfriend has hers in November, and our daughter has hers January 14th. I had already put them a year older than they were. Shh…don’t tell anyone! I thought that Unity’s Age and Wine stamp was perfect for my daughter-in-law since her birthday was bothering her this year. I have to let you in on a little hint. Right now and through the weekend, Unity is having a March Madness sale. You could get this stamp for its regular $6.99 but get another Itty Bitty for 1 penny! That’s basically 2 for 1! Pretty good, huh? For the inside of the card I used the Unity Stamp “Happy Birthday to You” from the Bunches of Love set. Let me tell you what I used for this card:
Copics: E-70, E-71, R-32, R-37, R-39, R-46, Y-11, Y-15, Y-18, YG-23
Flamingo Liquid Pearls
Sizzix Majestic #2 Labels
Creative Imaginations Signature Collection
“Happy Birthday to you”–Bunches of Love
Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress Ink
Wine bottle button
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
This birthday card is going to my stepson that I have raised since he was younger than 8. He isn’t much younger than me. I thought he might get a kick out of this. I have used Unity Stamp’s “Sucks to Get Old” and “Happy Birthday to you” which is from the bunches of love kit. This mean if you wanted to get the Age and Wine stamp plus the Sucks to Get Old stamp then you would only have to pay $7. That’s a good deal since both stamps are regularly $6.99. Here’s what I used on the Sucks to Get Old Stamp.
Hootenanny paper from MME
Copics: BG-18, BV-17, E-81, R-46, R-59
Sizzix Circle Framelit
Paper Studios CS
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Happy Birthday to you — Bunches of Love set
Don’t forget to go check out the March Madness Sale at Unity this weekend. I hope that my birthday cards could be an inspiration. Until we meet again…Ciao…

Unity has some awesome red rubber stamps. Today I am showing three of those stamps. I needed to make a thank you card for a friend so I chose to use the “Wishing You Joy” set. This weekend Unity is celebrating having 16,000 Facebook friends. They are having an awesome sale. It is 46% off SITEWIDE with the Coupon Code: FB16. For orders over $16 you get a free Itty Bitty. Also there are 61 stamps that they have marked down 61%. You really need to go check it out. It is an amazing sale.
Now let’s get back to my card. Here are the pictures:
Here are the details. I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and AC Cardstock. The paper is Pretty Poppies by Autumn Leaves. I added some detail with Onyx Pearl Liquid Pearls. I dry embossed with a “Stampin’ Up” Textured Impressions Flower Garden die. I used Autumn Leaves Pretty Poppies brads. Here is the list of Copics that I used: B-60, R-20, R-24, R-27, R-29, and YG-25. On the inside the embellishment is also from Autumn Leaves Pretty Poppies Set and the “Thank You so much” stamp is from Unity’s Bunches of Love set. That set is perfect for SO many things. It is a MUST HAVE in any cardmaker’s stock!
Well as always, I hope that you have found some inspiration here today. Until we meet again…Ciao…
Today is my Dear Friend’s Birthday. She is 11 months younger than me. I think that she is much wiser than me though. Anyway, I wanted to take this time to wish her the happiest of birthdays. I took the opportunity to use Unity’s challenge for this month. Every month Unity has a month long Unity challenge you can choose from 3 themes: Color, card sketch, and/or scrapbook page sketch.
You can actually do all three. I did the color and actually used the picture of the colors.
I used Unity’s Stamp called Basket Full Of Wishes. I used Copic colors C-0 and C-8. I used my Prisma Watercolor Blanc. I used Ranger Distress Markers: Gathered Twigs, Picket Fence, Salty Ocean, Shaded Lilac, Squeezed Lemonade, and Stormy Sky. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The sketch was found from Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #52. I added 3 Michael’s $1.50 pearls and the papers are from Bo Bunny. I also used the grass punch to add a little grass under the bicycle tires.
The inside is a stamp from Unity’s Bunches of Love set. It is a great set and if you don’t have it you really ought to invest in it. I also added the color of flowers from Unity’s challenge that I found in Michael’s $1.50 bin.
Susan, I love you and I hope your birthday is one of the greatest ones ever. I hope that you like your card. Unity’s stamps are perfect for every occasion.
If you haven’t already gone to http://kristyleesworld.wordpress.com/ be sure to go there and see the other card that was made for Susan for her birthday.
Also, if you don’t mind please pay a visit to Susan S’s blog click here! then on any one of her posts please tell her Happy Birthday, (Thank you in advanced.)
These flowers went to Susan from Kristy and I as well. I hope that you like them Susan!
Thank you for your visit (please check back) and thank you for your comments.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope that if you took the time to come by here today you found some inspiration. Until we meet again…Ciao…
I have created an Easter card and I used Unity’s new challenge for my inspiration.
I went with color but there is no reason that your can’t go with two or even all three. Here is my card:
The first thing I did was take the colors that were on the challenge and use those colors of crayons and melt them with my embossing heat dryer. It is hard to see the purple on the black but you can see it if you look close. I used Recollections Chalk paper and Recollections white pigment ink to stamp my image from Dying Eggs (wit & widsom). The bg paper come from Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments Collection. The inside is AC Cardstock which is a light violet. I used 2 stamps from Unity’s Everything Easter collection for the inside. If you follow the link the Everything Easter stamp is on sale for $12 down from $29. You will need to hurry though as the sale ends tomorrow. Also the shipping is $2.95 on orders over $25. That’s a true bargain. I have one more card to show you.
This is i will give you my heart Unity Stamp. This is one of Phyllis Harris’ stamps. I really like her stamps. Here are the Copic colors I used:
E-00, E-13, E-19, E-21
V-121, V-15, V-17
I also used my Derwent color pencil “Baked Earth”. The bg paper is Love Me by MME. On the inside I used a heart embellishment by Heidi Swapp and I colored it with Tsukineko Cherry Blossom spray.
I hope that you have enjoyed my cards as much as I enjoyed bringing them to you. I hope to see you again. Until we meet again…Ciao…
Hello My Crafty Friends~
I have created a card for this week’s Unity challenge. These are the fun things they allow you to choose from:
You can choose from a color challenge, a sketch card challenge, or a sketch scrapbook page challenge. Or you can do them ALL of course. I decided to really challenge myself so I went with the color and the sketch challenge.
Here is my card:
I used the Unity “Bee” Better Together stamp that can be found here if you would like to own one of your own. For the embossing I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix Set called “Bubble & Honeycomb Set”. My papers are from MME “Follow Your Heart * Be Amazing”. I used Copic R-46 to color in the hearts. I added a bow and a bee button that I had in my stash. I used the Majestic #2 Labels framelits from Sizzix to cut out my bees and the sentiment for the inside of my card. I wanted to dress it up a little so I used a piece of the left over paper to add my sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by today. Until we meet again…Ciao Ma Copine…
