My Sweet Petunia and Unity Stamps Swap Hop!!



Hello friends!! Welcome to another collaboration blog hop between My Sweet Petunia and Unity Stamps!!

For today, I have a couple of projects I want to share with you, simple and fun ones. As soon as I got my stamps, I colored them, you know I wanted to have them ready to go ASAP, lol, well that didn't happen, but another story. True story though is that I love to color, relax me after a very long day of work and makes me happy too!!

TIP: I like to keep my image on my MISTI while coloring, I make less mess and don't lose my image (yeah, sometimes I can't find my colored images)
So, let me show you them to you.

Project 1: This project uses "I have no fears" set. Stamped the image using my MISTI on a white piece of cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink (x2). Colored one image with Spectrum Noir Markers, and the second one only the grass/flower part, then create a window with Oval dies. Stamped the sentiment on vellum and green ink and added to the left top corner. Finally, I added 3 little heart die-cuts. Added a piece of patterned paper under the adhered panels and to the card base.



Project 2: This card is super fun!! I honestly had another idea for this project, but love how it turned out. I stamped the super cute image in Memento Tuxedo black and the sentiment in Ken Oliver Red Ink from Start Each Day set, colored the image with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. Cut the panel and added it to a piece of patterned paper and added stitches, die-cut a couple of ric-rac piece and glue them together. Final touch was a pink button with silver thread.
