Crafty Haul Video! From Simon Says Stamp and many more

Come check out my crafty haul from Simon Says Stamp, Scrappingreatdeals, Unity Stamps and more! Let me know if you enjoy this type of video and I'll make more!

More Unity Fun!

First up this one is my favourite- Angie used her daughter as a model for this one. Called Never Far it is a stunning image and a great one for colouring or paper piecing. Love!

Who can resist a vintage image! You Will is a gorgeous image from Unity that I can see myself using over and over again. And the sentiments are perfect. 

This one from Angie is featuring Ang from Unity! This stamp is called Just a Glass and I made this card for my bestie as we love white wine and chatting together. Check out the samples on the Unity website from more gorgeous cards some with red wine!

All these stamps are on sale right now fyi. Enabler alert!

Cheers, Andrea

Unity Margaret Angie Girl Card

I had soooo much fun colouring up this Angie Girl stamp from Unity Stamps. I haven't coloured folds in clothes in years. Turned out not too bad! The Margaret stamp is perfect for birthday's or any celebration that they may be celebrating. 

I don't want to shock anyone but I actually remembered to take a picture of the Copic colours I used in case you want to copy this look. Look at me go!

Hoping you are having a great weekend!

Cheers, Andrea

I'm in LOVE with Gina K Designs now carries Gina K Designs! I used the Nordic Winter set on this card and the Gina K Ink cube add on for 2018 for my inks. I also used my Misti to keep my stamps lined up perfectly. 

Oh the Wreath Builder stamps and stencils- Oh how I love thee. These stencils allow you to PERFECTLY line up your images over and over again. Check out Gina's video on how to use it:

We all need this in our life!!!

My last card combines the wreath builder stencil with the Nordic Winter images. I love how cute this is! I have always steered away from making wreaths but now I can easily. Can't stop saying how great this is. Kudos to Gina K for thinking of this!

Cheers, Andrea

10 cards from PhotoPlay O Canada Christmas

I cracked open a O Canada Christmas package that I got from and made 10 cards!!! I could have made many more with all that I still have left. Scroll down to see the quick cards I made. Love love love this Canadian themed set! I also used the matching stamps and dies and an ephemera pack. I can probably make 10 more next year. If you want some matching papers, stamps, dies and accessories you will be in crafting heaven!

Unity stamp creations

So it has been almost 2 years since I have posted to my blog!
Did you miss me?
I missed crafting Andrea- glad I've brought her back.

Today I am sharing 2 cards I made with Unity Stamps from their new release. The first card is with an adorable bunny from the set Easy to Love. I blew the dust of my copics and remembered why I used to love colouring so much. This image was fun to colour and makes me think of Valentine's Day. This this one will be for one of my girls. Who would you give it to? Right now it's on sale from $24 to $10.94 so a great time to add to your collection. Unity stamps are made with red rubber so you get amazing detailed images. I use them in my Misti with the foam insert removed. 

Next up is one of the 2 Gnome stamps released this week. I have a thing for gnome stamps- do you? That and fairy stamps. This one is called Lending your Ear and is also on sale from $26 to $11!! I like to keep my Copic coloured cards simple in design so the focus is on the colouring. I felt soooo rusty colouring and blending but I know with practice I'll get back to where I was and hopefully even better. I've started watching youtube videos on colouring to jump start my ability. So far so good lol. 

I haven't included the markers used but if you would like to see that let me know and I will take a pic of the markers for future reference. I know I love it when I see that on blogs so really I should already know to do that ha!

That's it for me today. What's on your craft desk? Please feel free to drop me a comment and I will get this blog thing going again. It feels good to be back. 

Cheers, Andrea

MFT Kindness stamp set and dies

Andrea here!
I finally got my craft room clean enough for me to make a card.
I did enlist hubby's help- it was that messy

I broke open my new stamp set from MFT- Kindness with complimenting dies.
It is important to note that the dies do not cut out the words from the stamp set
Instead they are complimenting dies to the stamps

On my card I used a die and a stamp from the set
Holy cow does this stamp set have a lot of stamps to choose from
First I stamped a MFT background stamp in Whimsical Woodgrain
stamped on a kraft background in brown ink
Then I die cut the kindness die in black cardstock
and one of the sentiments embossed in white on black card stock
Glossy accents on my die cut to make it pop….
That's it!
And I love it. 

I hope you like my clean and simple card too!
Happy Saturday,
