Susan K.Weckesser & Unity stamp blog hop!!!

Hello and welcome to my blog!!!

I have to warn you that I am not exactly what we call a card maker but I enjoyed making these two cards using that seriously CUTE Mr. snowman by Susan K.Weckesser & Unity!!!


We are so very excited you are joining us for our first ever SusanK Weckesser Design Team Blog Hop with Unity Stamp Design Team

If you are not already a follower, we would love for you to join our families and follow our blogs as well as stay up-to-date by Liking us on Facebook:

During this 2-day hop, you will be inspired and in awe of all the fabulous creations shared by members of these two talented design teams.
Both teams will be sharing Simple Christmas Card Ideas using Unity Stamps designed by Susan K Weckesser Inc. It's not too late for Christmas Cards.   According to the US Postal service, if you mail your holiday cards by December 20, they will arrive by December 25th!  And, this will give you a chance to also join in the Christmas Love Campaign.

My cards are very simple considering my busy, messy style! 
**For the 1st one, I used a sizzix snowflake die which I have painted gold using a dabber and I added some pearls too. Behind that, I have placed some mesh just to give some texture and depth. To paint the snowman, I used distressed ink (aged mahogany) with the tip of a brush and gold dabber the same way. The buttons are covered with black stickles and I placed some stardust stickles all over too, but I don't think you can see the sparkle in the photo...
**For the 2nd card, I have painted the snowman the same way and have also created a small cluster with Christmas flowers.

We are giving away two chances to win an amazing prize package containing a generous variety of Susan K Weckesser stamps co-branded with Unity Stamps. 
You can see the entire Susan K.Weckesser -{Artisan} collection --->HERE!!!

"Domestic Goddess" for Berry71bleu & 7Dots!

"Going crazy"

Hello everyone! "Going crazy" is our challenge this month at Berry71bleu and that's what I did! I usually create using a sketch but not this time...I took my mists, stencils and gloss medium and started playing around! I loved the outcome!!!! The "Domestic Goddess" collection by 7 dots (which kindly sponsored our DT) urges you to create something extraordinary!!! Manor house flowers and ScrapFX chipboard were a great asset to the funky page and you can buy them at  Zeus & Zoe Etsy store!!!

"Domestic Goddess"

I have misted the flowers to match the colors of my layout!!! That bold felt doily and the washi tape are from Purple Pumpkin!!!

I really loved this collection by 7 Dots as it has so many beautiful die cuts, vintage stickers and papers with bold colors!!!

Orange doily and dotted button are from Purple Pumpkin!!!

To create that dripping effect with your mists, just spray many times in a certain spot, then hold your paper upright and while it is dripping blow some air on it (I hope I make sense...hahaha)
These two cool funky star buttons are Purple Pumpkin!

Materials used:
Papers, die cuts, stickers: 7Dots Studio
Flowers: Manor house
Handmade embellishments: Purple Pumpkin
Gloss Medium: Claudine Hellmuth
Glimmer mist: Tattered Angels, Ranger
Chipboard: ScrapFX
Metal Embellishments: American Crafts

"Christmas Love Campaign" - Susan K. Weckesser

Hello my friends!

I would like to inform you today about the "Christmas Love Campaign" organized by Susan K. Weckesser. It is such a sensitive and beautiful gesture!!! We are all going through difficult times and this is a message of love and kindness! We can show our sensitivity and humanity towards the people around us!

Here are a few things that Susan shared on her blog:

"This world can be so hard….. Each day we are faced by natural disasters, family  crisis,  health issues, monetary problems, and day to day things that just seem to pop up. But, we can ease each other burdens just by reaching out and doing one little kind thing. It always amazes me that when someone seems to be having a horrible day, like that cashier at the grocery store, if you just take a second and smile at that person, and tell them to have a nice day…. well, most of the time, they won’t seem so grumpy anymore!
So PLEASE join in the Christmas Love Campaign!
It won’t take much of your time & you will be so glad you did!!!!

You can follow tweets, tweeters and twitterings by following hashtags #christmaslovecampaign #craftuplove . Please feel free to use those hashtags when talking about the Christmas Love Campaign and tell us what you are doing!
One of a Kind Winter {christmas campaign} 1
Plus when you purchase the little snowman that was made into a Unity Stamp… part of the proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society in memory of my Dad & father in law who passed away from Cancer and for everyone who has been effected by cancer. This is super cool. You can purchase the stamp at Unity Stamp Co. HERE!
There will be a contest later on in the campaign using the snowman stamps.
If you just want to make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society for under the Christmas Love Campaign event…you go HERE.
