My 1st card for this months hop is keeping a little bit of Summer ..
To make this card, all I did was swirl 5 different distress inks for the background..
mounted it onto black cardstock
Then, using the butterfly, and sentiment from the KOM 5/17
I stamped the image directly onto the background piece~
For the sentiment, I did emboss it with clear ep,
As an afterthought, I used white acrylic paint , watered down a bit and flicked it onto the entire card
(I kinda wish I had done that before I did my stamping)
then tied the eyelash ribbon around the middle...
For my second card...
I used the KOM 7/17
I started out with kraft cardstock, and matching pattern paper from
I stamped the butterflies directly onto the pattern paper, and then clear embossed it
On a second piece of kraft cs, I stamped the sentiment, and clear embossed it as well
then I distressed the edges of the paper with matching ink.. (love doing that )
I had to think on this card for a long time..
the sentiment needed to be boardered and I just couldn't find anything that looked good....
so, when I get stuck, I start cleaning~ LOL~
yep...you never know what you'll find under that mess..
then I spotted my roll of burlap!!
The sentiment is from Lilli Girl~ Link <<<
I sat back down, and started layering..
First I cut the burlap long enough to be seen..
I bought some burlap flowers at Michael's and they always come in handy!!
I cut some leaves from a Sizzix die set
Glued down the leaves, then added the flowers!!
I love using ribbon!
I had this espresso colored sheer ribbon from
CTMH and it looked perfect..I did put a little curl in the ribbon ;)
If you look closely, you can see the word "love" that is in the stamp..
I never noticed it until I stamped it!!
That just made my day!
It is so sweet..like a hidden message you hope the recipient of the card notices, too.
The little blue bird is from a 3D sticker pack I've had a long time!!
I like to mention that the sweet basket weave coffee was a gift from Lisa Burton Bradford
Well, that's it for me!!
I hope we have given you some inspiration with our love for Unity stamps!!
