More MFP

Ok, one more.... what can I say, I'm on a roll...
The challenge on this one was to use your favorite technique.  I have so many favorites it's kinda hard to choose.  So i went with a few here....
I love ripping paper.... I don't know why, cathartic I guess.... who knows?  This is actually from a roll of wrapping paper that I got in the dollar bin at Target last week!  I'm going to go vintage this Christmas and wrap all my gifts in "newspaper" and red and white bakers twine.  I digress...
Aother of my favorite techniques is using multiple inks on one stamp.  I used my SU! Medallion with Basic Black and Rose Red.  
And the last of my favorites here is the distressing of sorts on the gray card stock.  I achieve that by simply rubbing the edges of the paper over the open ink pad.... multiple times and sometimes i press down (like I did here) to get the ink to transfer further onto the paper.  I do this ALL THE TIME!!!!! Seriously, go back through my blog and look at how often I do it... seriously. 
Ok, NOW it's time for bed.  
Have a sweet day (night).

Growing in Unity Day 1

Hello there Unity Crafters!!!!! Today marks my very first day in the Growing in Unity event.  Today I'm featuring a card that I made using the set {Jar Full of} Sweetness.  Those of you who know me, know that I'm completely addicted to apothecary jars and have lots of them filled with all sorts of candies on my countertop.  I adore them and i'll never stop collecting them.  So, when I saw this set, I knew I HAD TO HAVE it straight away!
I'm very new to making shaker cards but I thought it would be perfect to have the little sequins I purchased from Firefly Crafts inside the jars to make it look like little candies in there!

I also used a few of the flowers I purchased from Firefly Crafts as well, they are made by Wild Orchid and they are absolutely perfect!






I hope you enjoyed this card today and it inspired you to make something crafty! Surf the Unity site and find a cute stamp and get with it! he he he! See you all tomorrow!
