Tags for FWF

It's official - I love making tags!  And, it's Friday so it's time for Unity folks to shine....

Here is a tag I made using my favorite stamp from Ippity's "Now & Always."  I heat embossed it and then dragged vintage photo distress stain on it - then added Liquid Pearls to the flowers' centers and broken china to the seam binding ribbon.  I wanted to enter it in the My Unity Place Challenge but think I'm too late:-)  Oh, well, some lucky customer will receive it in their next Ippity order...

If you need this stamp set and I know you do - sidle on over to purchase...

And, Happy Fourth of July - a time to reflect on our freedoms and what they cost...

More Summery Goodness!

Happy Friday!  It's the first day of vacation and although I didn't set the alarm, the alarm with fur came in and swatted me at the regular time anyway:-)

I was so taken by Lesley Langdon's fruit cards with distress stains the other day that I wanted to try them with a twist.  Pretend you don't have those fabulous Unity stamps she was using and that instead you have Ippity's "Thoughts from the Past" and "New Season, New Wonder."  Also, you don't have Copics or distress stains. Hmmmm, what to do....this is a good entry for the summer challenge over at Unity, too.

Well, you use the Tattered Angels Chalkboard mist in Cotton Candy with a spritz of Strawberry Shortcake to imitate the water drops.  Let it dry and stamp "Thoughts from the Past" in black hybrid ink.  I also stamped "Thoughts from the Past" in Versamark for a little interest on the white card.  Then, I used red Hero Arts layering paper to stamp my apple with Fired Brick Distress Ink.  A little green Maya Road pin gives it a more finished look.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good photo of how shimmery the pink is but I still love it.  (I wouldn't have even bought these mists but I found someone at a show closing them out for four bottles for $5 - now I love them and would pay full price:-))

So, admit it, you need these two sets "Thoughts from the Past" and "New Season, New Wonder."  I have both of them and I can ship them to you right now, postage prepaid in the Continental U.S.  Just sidle on over to the sidebar for the "Summer Challenge Special" ...in fact, just go to the top of my blog for a package deal on the two sets - 10% through this Sunday...

Happy Friday!

Summer Challenge - Happy Monday

I love this card!  The "Gurnsey Gingham" stamp from Ippity totally reminded my of a summer picnic tablecloth and what says summer more than some sweet cherries?  I also used my new Cuttlebug embossing folder with all kinds of fruit and berries.  Love it!  I'm entering it in the Unity Challenge here.

And, here's a closeup of the image and sentiment from "New Season, New Wonder," one of my favorite sets ever!

I'm sure you need this so scroll over to the sidebar to purchase it.  I'll even throw in a few little random Unity stamps....

Release Day Tuesday!

Today we are showcasing the amazing sets "The Man," and "New Season, NewWonder."  All yesterday's projects were amazing.  "The Best" has stamps so huge they are bursting out of the packaging!

Here's a great Father's Day combo using "The Man," and "Authentic Man." I even found little hangers for these shirts.  I love this set!

These are the two sets I used.  You really need them so scroll on over to the sidebar to make your purchase!

Father's Day is almost here so here's your opportunity to make something special.

Have a great day,

I have all the new sets available today!

Here are some projects I made using "New Season, New Wonder."  Fruit is all the rage this season and this is a fabulous set.  I love this pear and I plan to make a set of four coasters from the fruits in the set.  Hopefully, I'll have more to show you later:-)  This is also my entry to the "Anything But a Card Challenge over at the Ippity blog.

Next is a card using the apple.  I colored it with a watercolor marker to make it bright and cheery like a summer picnic.

I have this set in stock right now along with all the new releases as well as most of the previous releases! Scroll over to the sidebar to make your purchase and make sure you visit the Ippity blog for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to use with the Ippity Chick of your choice! See the details here...

I also made a tag and paper pieced the shirt and tie from "The Man."  I love this little set, especially teamed with "Authentic Man,"  one of our fabulous earlier releases... This tag also qualifies for the "Anything But a Card" challenge.  I am offering 10% off the price if you but "Authentic Man" and "The Man" together.  They are fabulous together!

I always send a free gift of some random stamps with your order!

Here are all the new sets:

All I can say is TGIF!!!   It has been a week, all the madness packed into four days rather than five...  Here are some more coasters I made using some fabulous Ippity stamps.

For Father's Day, what guy doesn't need a coaster for his iced tea or hard-earned beer?  These stamps are from the fabulous "Authentic Man" set.  Order today to get this set in time for Father's Day!

The next two are from the set "You Deserve" and I think they are beauties, if I do say so myself!

What is there not to love about Ippity stamps?  Unity quality available from me....place your order today!  And, have a fabulous weekend!

Are You Ready for Some New Ippity???

Look at what you can make with your Ippity stamps!!  The background is the sheet music from "Music of My Heart" and the bird and sentiment are from "Sing a New Song."

This is a great technique we learned at Stamp Asylum - using Perfect Pearls and Distress Ink.


Remember - we have new sets being released on June 5 - you can pre-order from the sidebar...so scroll on over.
