Happy Monday - Guest Designer


                                                                 
 Hello Unity Friends
 
Happy Monday! It's Mandi here from Faith Hope & Crafts
I was so thrilled to be asked to a guest designer this month.
 It's the kind of thing you dream of but you don't really think will happen...but it did!  
 Who knew buying one little stamp a few of years ago would lead me here!
 
 Today I have two cards I made using some lovely Unity stamps and Brusho Crystal Colours! If you are not familiar with Brusho they are small pots of highly pigmented powders that are so versatile. 
 
  My first card is made using the sentiment from the Empowered Words stamp kit. This kit is new to me. I have been wanting it for a long time and I finally got it last week yay! This card is super easy to make.  I covered the edge of my card with lime green Brusho and misted it with water.  I let it air dry and then stamped my quote. Next I hand stitched some zig zags and added some sequins to finish.
 
 
 
My second card is made using one of my favourite stamps called Dream Big.  I love butterflies and have almost all of the Unity butterfly stamps! Yes I am a bit of an addicted ha!  I used the same technique on this card only I covered all of the paper with two different Brusho colours turquoise and violet. I also stamped an extra set of butterflies and then fussy cut them out. I stuck them down with foam dots to make them pop off the card. 
 
 
 
 
 
  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
See you next week!
 
 
Mandi :)

They are beautiful. I love the effect the crystals have. I will have to find some and try this!

Gorgeous cards! I haven't tried Brusho. Just starting to experiment with ink sprays. But I just love the background craze right now. And then to add some awesome Unity stamps just perfects it! :-)

Hi Mandi. These are beautiful, especially the way you made the backgrounds. I must give Brusho a try. You make it look amazing.
