Inspiration Wednesday!




Happy Wednesday! Echo here sharing some inspiration I found from this beautiful picture!




 I just got the new distress oxide inks in the mail. 
So it was a perfect match to create something beautiful!


 
I made a tutorial video on how this was done! 
I used the HollyHocks stamp from the Donna Downey line 
and the sentiment came from the Imperfection is Beauty
also from the Donna Downey line.




Here is a closer look at the card.







Hope you have a fabulous rest of your week! 
Beauty is created with kindness. Create something beautiful!

It really is all about the moments!!

Hello Peeps!!
I hope you are all doing well!
Welcome to Design Team Tuesday!
It's Noelle posting today and I am so excited!
I adore Dr. Suess, he seems to have been very smart right?  Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.  Don't you love that so much?
Today is all about the moments for me!
Ang inspired me for some mixed media this morning!
I just grabbed this canvas.  I got 4 of them for $4.99 at Ross which is a store like a TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Home Goods.  
I slapped some acrylic paint onto the canvas, then I added some more white to lighten it up and painted over a Tim Holtz stencil then I stamped on the butterflies from Keep Going Anyway.  I did put an old wooden stamp under the canvas to get something firm to stamp on.  I didn't think that would work on the edge so I stamped the sentiment on paper and adhered it with Modge Podge.   
Strength grows in the moments when you think you can't go on but you keep going anyway.   
How beautiful is this card Amanda made?   My goodness I love it so much!!  I love that she stamped the Donna Poppy in the bottom corner like that!
I also love the sentiment she used.  Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.
Have you been shopping yet?  There is an excellent sale going on.  Do you need something that isn't on sale? No worries, almost  the whole store is on sale and it magically shows up in your cart at 45% off!!!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Today, I hope you enjoy your moments!

KOTM Monday with Angeline

Happy Monday! :)
Angeline here to share with you a card I made using the KOM 03/17 "Pretty Darn Amazing".

Unity Stamp: KOTM Monday with Angeline #unitystampco #scrappyscrappy #kom #kitofthemonth #congratulationscard #card #cardmaking #papercraft #scrapbook #craft #watercolor #katscrappiness #gansaitambi #nuvodrops

I absolutely LOVE this whole little garden inside a mug. Just genius drawing! :)
I painted the image using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. Then I die cut the card with the beautiful Kat Scrappiness Stitched Fancy Scallop Rectangle die.
Finally, I added the Nuvo Jewel drops in Orange Marmalade. This is my absolute favorite scrappy supply right now! Just gives the card an extra boost.

Inspiration Wednesday with Camille

My project for today was inspired by a few sets of distress crayons I found on sale the other day. They’ve been out for a while and I’ve been a bit reluctant to try them as they reminded me of another supply I already have a ton of in my craft room. Well, after getting them, I couldn’t wait to try them with Unity’s SMAK Kit from February 2017.

 
Before I knew it, my afternoon flew by. These crayons were easy to use, not very messy if you didn’t want to get messy, have a pen-grip style, glide on easily, and were very effective using water through stencils. When I first saw them, I thought they would be a lot like gelatos, which I have a ton of, and well, I didn’t want to add more to what I already had. Because of their pen-grip style, control, and distress colors, I think I like them better than gelatos.

What do you think about using distress crayons? Know of any easy techniques I could try? Please share with me. I'd love to know.

DT Tuesday

HI there! Happy Tuesday!  Maria here with DT Tuesday!

Recently I got the new Distress Oxide ink pads and had to start playing with them.  On this card I used the kit "You Make You" Oxide inks on text paper and stamped the bird using Oxides.


Here are a few cards using Oxide Inks that I found on the Unity Show & Tell page:


Lagene Sands used Distress Oxides here in her background which is stunning

Mindy Cox beautifully used oxides on this card


Here is a great quote I found:
