My Sweet Petunia and Unity Stamp Co. Collaboration Bloghop

Happy Friday!
We are hopping with the Unity Stamp Company's design team and some special crafters who love the MISTI and Unity Stamps. There is a list of everyone participating below, but you should have reached my blog via Stephanie's blog, if not you will want to head over to My Sweet Petunia and start from the beginning because there are prizes involved for those who leave comments on each blog by Noon CST May 30th. What are the prizes you ask??
Everyone who leaves a comment on all the blogs by the designated time will go into a drawing for 3 prize packs from unity and the winner's choice of an Original or Mini Misti. what a prize package huh??

For my card I used the set Happy Snail Mail. This image was super fun to color. 
To make my card, I used a top folding kraft card base and the Quilted Stitched Spirals cover die and Stitched Rectangle both by Lil' Inker Designs. My ink pad was a little dry and I didn't have a refill so I positioned the stamp on the stitched panel in the Mini Misti to make sure I got a crisp image by over stamping. To color it I used Copic markers BG11, BG23, BG32 and R46 for the snail shell, YR01, Y23, and Y38 or the body, for the grass I used YG23 and YG25, and the mushroom is colored with YR16, YR68, E31, E33, E35 and Y28. 
To make sure the greeting was straight I used the ruler that is in with the Creative Corners, I use this ruler on pretty much every card that has a greeting to help me stamp it straight.

Now it's time to head over to Robyn's blog to see what she has to show you. Be sure to leave comments so you are eligible to win. 

The winners will be posted on both the My Sweet Petunia blog and the Unity blog, be sure to check back to see if you are a winner. 

Thanks for hopping with us!

It's time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More and this week its all about Holidays.

I have no clue why but anytime there is a challenge of Holiday, I make a Christmas card. there are other holidays out there in case you want to make a valentines day card or
To make this card I started with a white top folding card base and a read panel cut the same size to cover the entire front.  The stamp set I used is Merry Makers by SugarPea Designs. I colored it with Copic markers and added some Nuvo drops and glossy accents to finish it off.

Twice The Love

Today I attended a double baby shower for to sweet mama's that are expecting baby girls next month.  This set Warm Welcome by Lil' Inker Designs makes the perfect baby card.
I started with a top folding card base and a panel cut down on one side with a stitched die. I stamped the floral images using Altenew ink and the cut them out with the Warm Welcome coordinating dies. I added a strip of patterned paper down the side.

Even thought it may be a tad liberal I used this weeks sketch from 
CAS(E) This Sketch

Here's a picture of both cards

Not my usual style but I wanted to try my hand at vintage for the challenge over at 

To make my card I created a background by sponging Vintage Photo distress oxide ink on a piece of bristol paper, then randomly stamped the floral image from the set Parisian Postcard by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps in the same ink color. 
I stamped the Eiffel Tower in versa mark ink and embossed it with Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder.  The next step was to spritz it with water to get the ink to react. To finish the card I stamped the two butterflies in Broken China distress oxide and the greeting from the Mason Jar Bouquet also by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Watercolored Florals

I  have been practicing my watercoloring on these cute Art Play Mini coloring books by Adorn It.  If you have never heard of Adorn It you should head over there now and check it out! They have everything from shoes, to clothes to paper crafts. It is Amazing!

I am also a part of a Daniel Smith watercolor split and I am loving these paints and with the split I can semi afford them lol.
For my card I colored a page from the Daisy Delight mini coloring book and attached it to a top folding card base.
