Fab Feature Wednesday!

Hi there! It's time for another Fab Feature Wednesday over on the Ippity blog. This week we are featuring the stamp set "Oh my darling".
 
And here is the card I made:
 
The paper I used is from Echo Park's 6x6 paper pad "Victoria gardens". This is a clean and simple card that came together super fast which is a requirement these days as I have been super busy being soccer mom, PTA volunteer, full time office manager, etc, etc, etc. You know how it is. I'm glad to have had a chance to put this card together and look forward to sharing some mixed media canvases I have been working on. Check back over the weekend to see a few peeks.
 
This stamp set can be purchased on the Unity Stamp Co website. While you are there make sure to throw a few of the many wonderful stamp sets into your cart as well. A girl can never have too many Unity stamp sets!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

What's Cooking?

Another week half gone and another card to share! Today I am sharing a card I made using the Ippity stamp set "What's Cooking?". I really like this set because my brother is a chef and he has recently been doing really well at work receiving promotions and such so this card will come in handy. If you have not seen the stamp set yet here it is:



I have made a couple of cards using the chef image and racked my brain trying to come up with a different way of using part of it and this is what I came up with:


The chevron paper by Jillibean Soup called "Butter Beans" is super cute but really busy and I couldn't quite come up with layering that I liked so I left it alone and just added him peeking through the circle. I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

Here is a peek at the inside of my card:

The Ippity blog is sharing more projects using this stamp set so make sure you head on over and check out all the wonderful projects the chicks have to share.

Every Wednesday we will be featuring a specific Ippity set so check back often so you don't miss out!

Happy Monday!


Happy Monday everyone! It is certainly feeling like summer around here. It was a very warm weekend and I made time in my weekend to get some much needed crafting in. Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the Ippity stamp set "Born in My Heart".




I made this card for the Ippity by Unity Challenge that can be found here. This challenge runs for two weeks until July 14th. The challenge was to use paint which I used to distress the edges of the card and the edge of the canvas heart. Here is the outside of my card:


And here is the inside:
