Good morning, good morning ….. I’ll stop myself there, even though Tilly woke me up at quarter to six this morning, the sun is shining so I’m feeling good. Well yesterday I was in a card making mood and so I made three, all using Unity stamps that I had just recieved in the post – my winnings from the Unity challenge blog!!!! The prize was a bag of mixed stamps- they are all fab but these are some of my faves.
I am sooooo loving this new bike stamp I got from Unity its from the set ‘Everyday Adorable’ and it is that…. soooo cute.
For this card I used a piece of white card, a piece of brown ribbon, distress ink in ‘walnut stain’ , the bike stamp and the sentiment comes from the Unity KOTM Sept 20011. I think it’s amazing how you can turn very little into something soooo cute – well that’s crafting for you.
I was inspired by the Less is More challenge this week that asks you to make a card with your own eye colour- can you guess what mine is?

Another CAS card using the sketch from KOTM challenge – I think this lets you see how great the stamps are!! The stamps I used are both from KOTM Sept 2011.
My fave technique of the moment is distressing the edges of my paper using my craft knife and curling up the very edges with my fingers- with these stripes of paper I only put double sided tape right in the middle so I could get the maximum lift.
I really really love this sentiment it can be used for so many occasions. I used the sketch from ‘Get Hippity Withj Ippity’- the papers I used are from the boys ‘hopscotch’ collection from K & Co, I inked the edges to give a aged feel.
The piece of fiber I twisted around to give texture and add interest to the card.
